Relaxing Villa near Rome with pool and spectacular views over Sabina countryside

Bedrooms 4
Space 2,152 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

A villa, nice and comfortable, where you can relax and entertain.

This comfortable modern villa has ample interior and exterior spaces with all the comforts;  immersed in nature with a view over the valleys of the Sabine countryside, ancient olive groves and oak woods, and sunsets against the mountain skyline. Surrounded by a charming garden shaded by a colonnade and trees, there is also a large pool where you can enjoy the panorama as you take a swim.

This villa, located only 50 km from Rome, is immersed in an olive grove a short distance from the medieval hamlet of Monteleone Sabina and the Roman ruins of the ancient city of Trebula Mutuesca in the splendid and unspoiled district of Sabina.

The house has four bedrooms, two baths, a large, sunny living room (48 sqm) with fireplace, and a well-equipped kitchen that opens onto a patio for outdoor dining. The spacious garden, with access to an over 2-hectare olive grove, has a large swimming pool (12x6 metres) from which to admire a breath-taking view over the surrounding countryside as you take a leisurely swim, read a book, or perhaps take in a sunset against the skyline of the distant hills.

The location offers a variety of opportunities to enjoy the countryside and quaint nearby villages, but is also a perfect base for excursions into Rome and many other towns in the regions of Lazio and Umbria, such as Tivoli (the Villa d’Este and Hadrian’s Villa), Orvieto and Spoleto. Lake Turano, wedged between the unspoiled mountains and forests of the Monte Navegna Natural Park, is only 15 km away and offers swimming, canoeing and sailing.

I’ll be there to welcome you and offer advice and suggestions for possible itineraries, restaurants and entertainment, and to help make your stay a truly unforgettable one!

About Giacomo

“Welcome, my name is Giacomo, and I’m very pleased to meet you”.

My wife Mary and I live in Rome, where I was raised, went to school and eventually studied medicine while cultivating my many other passions: motorbike and bicycle trips, skiing and sailing, books and films, tinkering and gardening. I love travelling and discovering authentic places, meeting the people who live in them and sampling the local cuisine and culture. My greatest pleasure, though, is to invite friends into my home to cook for and entertain them.

That’s why I finally decided to make hospitality my chosen profession, and I have my own special approach: I choose only the homes in which I would truly have wanted to live.

Charming homes, tastefully furnished by their owners in captivating settings, where I personally welcome visitors from all over the world to make them feel at home.

These homes come to life with every new set of guests; animated and enriched by this diversity of voices and experiences they only grow more beautiful. Why not come and see?

A excellent place to stay with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We were a three-generation group of seven from the UK and all had a wonderful holiday in this hill-top house with beautiful views across the olive groves. The house itself is on one-level - perfect for our needs, very well-equipped and nicely decked out. Excellent, large pool. We were shown around on arrival and a fridge with some food and drinks was a welcome and nice touch. The owner was on hand with advice should we need it. A perfect setting to unwind, take short trips to Rieti, roman ruins, remote villages and local lakes. Unspoilt and void of huge numbers of tourists. Perfect! A. Owen (Buckinghamshire, UK)

Spectacular views, very comfortable, located in a beautifully unspoilt area, very close to Rome.

  • 4 of 5

The house is located on the outskirts of the pretty hilltop town of Monteleone which has a small shop selling all food essentials, there is also a friendly cafe with beautiful views across the olive groves and a tobacconist/newsagent.

The house itself was very comfortable with a very well equipped kitchen, we ate all our meals out on the covered patio accessed immediately from the kitchen. Nice large sitting room but we spent all our time in the garden and pool both of which have glorious views over the surrounding countryside. The pool side is very well equipped with loungers and two enormous umbrellas for shade and cleaned every morning. It would be nice to have some more comfortable chairs for the garden.

Visited Rome several times which was very easy parking at Villa Borghese also close to Tivoli, Orvieto and Viterbo plus many more smaller hilltop towns and villages. It was too hot in July for us to go walking but the countryside was stunning and in cooler temperatures I would have loved to explore.

Antoine and Giulia in the villa nearby were very helpful if we needed them but very discreet for the rest of the time.

We all had a thoroughly good time and would definitely recommend.

Lovely house, beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week in the villa with 5 small children. The house was charmingly decorated and clean. Well equipped inc. a dishwasher and a washing machine. Loved to prepare dinner looking at the stunning valley view from the kitchen. Four bedrooms were cleverly placed in pairs with adjacent bathrooms, so two families could have some privacy, too.

The garden was lovely and as said, the view from 500 metres from sea level -- breathtaking. A lots of nicely tended grass for kids to play on. The pool was fenced, which left us with one less thing to worry about :)

There is a cafe and a few groceries in Monteleone village. The house is at the outskirts of the village. We would have liked a restaurant nearby, but missing that might be the only flaw in this beautiful, well kept property.

Would definitely recommend to a friend and might well come again ourselves too. Special regards to Giacomo, from whom we requested an extra baby chair and it was there when we arrived. Very nice touch.

Charmante et confortable villa avec vue magnifique

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons décidé de passer nos vacances de la Toussaint dans cette charmante maison dans la belle campagne Sabine! Elle offre tous les conforts, grand salon de 50m2 avec cheminée, chambre accueillantes et une cuisine très bien équipée. Grâce à une température de 22 degrés et des journées très ensoleillées nous avons pu bénéficier du jardin qui dispose de plusieurs espaces pour se reposer ou pour déjeuner et dîner avec des couchers de soleil et des vues imprenables sur les collines et villages voisinants. Giacomo qui est très gentil nous a beaucoup gâté avec ses précieux conseils pour visiter la région et nous a fait goûter la merveilleuse huile d'olive produite par les propriétaires qui sont italo-luxembourgeois. Rome n'est qu'à une heure de voiture et 1 heure et demi en train. Nous nous sommes promis de revenir durant l'été 2015 ce qui nous permettra d'ailleurs de jouir de la belle et grande piscine!

Nice house with a great view

  • 5 of 5

The house was built in 2003, the rooms are fine, the kitchen is great and the view to the olives fields it´s amazing. Giacomo and his wife are really nice people who solve every problem you might have.

It´s a really nice place to stay if you want to have a relaxed familiy time, 40-60 minutes from Rome and 10-15 minutes to the next big supermarket. The village of Monteleone Sabino is a small and beautiful italian village.

Hope to visit this place again sometime.

A nice walk from the house brings you to the lovely ancient Roman church of Santa Vittoria and the ruins of the roman amphitheatre.

The Lake Turano, with its wild landscape and medieval villages, is only 15 km away and you can enjoy swimming, sailing or fishing.

Just 40 km away, you will find the beautiful Villa Adriana and villa d'Este in Tivoli.

Near Rieti (30 Km on the Via Salaria, an interesting medieval town) there are many beautiful medieval Franciscan sanctuaries (Greccio, Fonte Colombo, Poggio Bustone) and the wonderful area of the lake of Piediluco, the Marmore Falls and Terminillo mountain (2500 m). 15 Km away (towards Rome) is Farfa Abbey, one of the most famous monastery in Europe. The abbey that is still little known on the tourist trail, hosts a magnificent Romanesque Cathedral and a stunning library of rare texts from medieval times. In recent times, British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver visited the abbey hoping to find inspiration in the long-famed medieval herb garden of the Benedictine monks...On the way to Farfa is the lovely medieval village of Frasso with its beautiful castle.

And of course Rome (56 Km away), which can be easily reached either by motorway or by train from Fara in Sabina (efficient, cheap train service running every half hour except Sundays; 45-60 minutes to the Colosseum and historical center).
