Dutch interior designer living in Paris found this property after a long hunt this was THE place that he had been looking for all along. terrific views that change every 10 minutes when the morning sun burns off the haze , secluded and yet within walking distance of a scenic village. where only Italians live.
rossana purchased this farmhouse in 1989
i wanted typical Italian country side rural yet not in the middle of nowhere with Rome 30 miles down the road : I found the ideal location/combination
the contrast of seeing traditional Italian village life every day with its quaint weekly market and then having the hustle and bustle of ROME nearby whenever I want a taste of this incredible city.
As we sat on the master patio this morning sipping our cappuccino the word that came to mind was perfection. the breeze blew greatly , the view was gorgeous and all of my senses wanted to drink in the beauty.
such a relaxed and wonderful trip . thank you Chris for making this place of beauty , peace & relaxation a possibility- a reality
We stayed in the house for a week from saterday untill saterday end of April. We visited with our kids aged 2 and 4. We really enjoyed this lovely house and the surroundings. Everyday we had breakfast on the terrace just outside the kitchen. Then we went to the piazza (the little square) for some coffee and just watch the local Italian life come to life. Stimigliano is a nice small village where you are the only tourists. Very friendly people. In the afternoon we mostly stayed at the pool cause the kids loved it. I also liked the fact that the pool and terrace were very close to the house so you don't loose sight of the kids. In the evening we went to the restaurant Da Lina for pizza or pasta. We also tried a restaurant in Vescuvio which was very nice connected to a church. But Da Lina was just 5 min drive from the house so very convenient and great food. Thanks for mentioning the new outlet shopping center outside of Stimigliano in your welcome book, I enjoyed going shopping there. We had planned to take the train from Stimigliano to Rome for a day but we loved relaxing at the pool so much we never got to it! We will have to come back next year. Thanks for a lovely week.

We stayed in the house for one week from Saturday 8/11/12 thru Saturday 8/18/12. My wife, my daughter (age 20) and friend (age 22) and my son (age 17). This farmhouse is very unique and truly a special place. The pool side setting is one of the most beautiful places to spend a week anywhere. With all to see within an hour (Rome, Siena, etc) we spent to days simply by the pool taking in the marvelous panoramic view. Even my 17yr old son was captivated by the vistas. The Sabine hills offer very comparable beauty to that of Tuscany. Rosanna the houses local host is the warm, friendly and welcoming face you want to be greeted by when you travel abroad. She is there for you if you need anything! Unless you are looking for a city or suburban setting for your stay (the house is on a very peaceful and private location and the town is small but interesting) we would highly recommend staying here.
Such a relaxing and beautiful location! The landscaping is magnificent and the pool was so enjoyable as a respite from the heat in the afternoon and for relaxation in the evening after a day of sightseeing. And my husband has never slept so well as he did here!
Very!! easy access to Rome via the train and the all day ticket that included the subway in Rome. The towns and villages in the area are also interesting and very diverse.
We are looking forward to when we can return!
