About the property

Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, large living room, garden overlooking the mountains

Located Roccantica in an internal private Borgo of 600, with a beautiful garden, this apartment offers the charm of old houses and the colors of an unspoilt landscape. Completely renovated, it has all the amenities for a comfortable and relaxing everyday life. On two floors, located on the lower level a large living room with fireplace, a spacious fitted kitchen and a bathroom. Going up the stairs, where you can appreciate the rock walls and a graceful trompe-l'oeil, there are two bedrooms and a bathroom. The context is full of opportunities for recreation and interest, but also offers tourists tired of well-known and popular routes, the possibility of traveling alternative routes, reserving unusual and fascinating aspects.

In the quiet of the place and without car it is possible to associate excursions on foot in the above Sabinis, to discover naturalistic and cultural itineraries, to practice free climbing.

For those who love walking the Sabine Mountains, beautiful even if not very high, are rich in panoramic ridges, vast forests, deep ravines, several interesting small plateaus. Great charm reserves the dolina of King Votano, reachable with a walk of about an hour following a path located a few meters from the house. The Sabines as a whole are a small universe of quiet, pleasant excursions, full of suggestive corners and vast panoramas and therefore there are many excursions that can be chosen, supported by maps and books available in the house. A few meters from the house, a beautiful cliff immersed in a landscape full of greenery and woods allows you to choose a total of 34 climbing routes.

Walking a few kilometers with the car you reach picturesque villages of Sabina. The paths of the Via Francigena and of the Francesco's Path wind a short distance. Culture and mysticism mingle by visiting the Franciscan places of Valle Reatina, arranged in the shape of a cross: Poggio Bustone, Fontecolombo, Greccio, La Foresta. Day trips allow you to visit numerous cultural centers and sites: Rieti, Orte, Orvieto, Bomarzo, Villa d'Este and Villa Adriana in Tivoli, etc. Rome can be reached in just over an hour, even by train.

During the beautiful spring / summer season in all the neighboring countries the evenings are rich in cultural and gastronomic events. In Roccantica, "Medioevo in Festa" has been held for over 20 years. Favored by the typical medieval structure of the village, the scenery of that time is reconstructed through costumes, food, music, parades, games, towers, portals, auctions, flags, torches, torches. To complete and harmonize with this typically medieval setting, the "HISTORICAL HANDICRAFTS" are opened wrought iron, basket maker, medieval tailoring, wooden objects, painting, typical products, artistic glasswork, miller, weaver, stonemason.

A Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

The peace and tranquility of this beautiful apartment and Roccantica itself was just what we needed and appreciated after our break in Rome. Massimo and Giovanni were so welcoming and had provided everything we needed to settle us in - a tray of fruit, bread and cheese etc and a bottle of Prosecco. We drank this watching the sunset from the pretty garden and admiring the lovely wooded hills and more distant views. The apartment is very spacious and comfortable and we loved its features. It’s a very special place which we hope to return to again. We really felt ‘at home’ in the apartment.

We walked locally and around nearby Casperia along the ‘Strada Bianci’ (white roads) between vineyards and hedges of autumn fruiting trees. The countryside is captivating and the little restaurant inside the walls of Casperia is great for lunch. There are many attractive and interesting hill towns further afield which we would visit on a longer stay.

Un lieu enchanteur !

  • 5 of 5

Un séjour formidable à Roccantica ! La maison est magnifique, aménagée avec goût et fonctionnelle, et on apprécie la climatisation naturelle d'un bâtiment à demi construit dans la roche. L'ensemble du palais est plein de charme, en particulier le jardin - où il n'est hélas guère possible de s'installer.

La région est très belle et offre des possibilités de randos (depuis la maison) et de visites (Sabina & Tuscia vers Viterbo ou les lacs).

Roccantica est un village à peindre, et dynamique, nous avons eu la chance d'assister à la fête médiévale de Ferragosto ! Enfin Giovanna et Massimo sont des hôtes charmants et efficaces.

Nous reviendrons avec plaisir...

Un site enchanteur et chargé d'histoire

  • 5 of 5

Très belle maison sur 2 niveaux, partiellement troglodyte (donc fraiche) bien renovée et offrant un séjour spacieux et agréable, située dans une magnifique voie privée : maisons du XVIIème siècle et d'origine bien plus ancienne, joli jardin avec vue sur la vallée...

Massimo et Giovanna, qui parlent anglais et français, sont très accueillants, et ont pensé aux moindres détails pour vous faciliter le séjour ; ils sauront vous orienter pour découvrir la région et les meilleures adresses des environs.

Hautement recommandé!

Nous espérons avoir encore la possibilité de nous rencontrer. Chaleureuses salutations. Giovanna et Massimo
