|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Come and make our country house - nestled between Rome and Rieti - your home base during your stay in Italy.
It is a typical rural stone farmhouse situated in the heart of Sabina, not far from Rome, on the edge of woods of oak, Holm oak, hornbeam and oak and immersed in lush green olive groves, walnut trees and cherry trees, at a height of 600 m.
It is an independent House on two floors, completely and carefully renovated in accordance with local tradition. It can accommodate up to 6 people and consists of 5 rooms, including 3 lovely bedrooms, a fully equipped American kitchen with dining room, a spacious and comfortable living room with stone fireplace, 3 bathrooms (shower) and 2 porches; the house overlooks a tidy garden and a large outdoor area. Nice the views of the countryside and the suggestive Monte Terminillo.
In the House you will find peace and tranquillity, unspoiled natural and wild landscapes, to lead a kind of simple and rustic life, unusual and rewarding, to escape the stress of city life, restore the spirit and relive emotions of ancient flavor. You can live pleasantly the house and relaxing enjoying the "noises" and smells of nature, or jogging, walking, trekking in the paths of Monti Lucretili Regional Park, some of which lie just a few meters from Casale di Valle Numa, visiting Rome or the very interesting sites of the Sabina territory, which contains some real architectural "treasures" (Rock-Hewn Churches, abbeys, Franciscans and Benedictines monasteries, Roman villas, medieval villages) or enjoy gourmet itineraries (truffle, Lake fish, crayfish, local cooking and typical products), touring festivals, cultural and musical events in the area.
"Valle Numa". In the full moon nights, when it reaches the zenith, the moon brightens the whole narrow valley that slopes toward the country with a series of "clearings" painted in different shades of green. A country road divides the upland hills of Sabina into two valley sides. Cherry, olive and walnuts trees are alternated sometimes in tidy way sometimes less. On the other side of the village, you can admire the summit, sometime times snow whitened, the Terminillo mountain. The noises are those of nature, it’s a polyphony; the range of notes is complete: the insects buzz around you, birds call each other from a hill to the other, you hear the various wildlife cries. Toward evening the village light up and make moving the night. More guttural sounds arrive , the woods became livelier and at the same time an hunting area; wild animals, normally surliness, during night set off each one with its own purpose, his trip. In addition to the village lights there are those of the fireflies. Numa Valley, the last bulwarks against pollution, against venom. The air is pure. At the beginning it is inebriant, you recognize its quality. Your senses are stressed all together and you enjoy living. You revive being in contact with these elements indispensable to us like the water.
I love nature in all its aspects and in particular the place where the house is located. I personally work in the property to maintain it and to let it better each year. I get great satisfaction in the country works. I spend the major part of my free time in these activities.
Paola purchased this farmhouse in 2004
Sabina is less known compared to other Italian regions but is worth further consideration because it contains real ' treasures ' in terms of both touristic and naturalistic point of view. I rent the house for the pleasure of sharing the knowledge of the territory with those who, like me , want to spend the holidays away from the stress of the city life.
The house offers to the welcome guests the warmth and comfort of a private home surrounded by nature.
Unspoiled natural oasis ; peace and tranquility not far from Rome . Olive groves , woods , wild animals , sounds of nature , fireflies that blend into the firmament , flowering fruit trees . In this place every season has its charms . Beautiful view of the Terminillo Mountain . One step away from the lake of Turano , just 50 minutes drive from St. Peter's Square in Rome.
We have spent the BEST vacation during last 6 years! Thanks for very warm welcome, care and every day support to the owner (Paola) and to her great daughters. Lovely place, very nice house, completely equiped with everything what you just can imagine to be needed for comfortable rest.
Fresh and not too expencive food in the supermarkets not far from the house. Nice people around - even they are not understand english (often), they will find a way to help you.
Beautiful Turano lake with crystal turquoise water is in 20 minutes by car from the house.
"We spent three very enjoyable weeks here. The house is beautifully situated, spacious and well-appointed. It lies in a quiet and secluded spot in the Sabine Hills, an area little known to tourists, but with beautiful scenery and attractive villages. We can wholeheartedly recommend it.
There are four dogs who live outside and don''t need looking after. They are friendly enough and obviously enjoy human company, but they should be mentioned in the description."
"Beautiful and well designed rustic house. Kitchen was full of all you would need and dining room full of games. The 5 dogs who live outside are excellent guards and so well mannerd. We enjoyed our peacful walks with them through the woods. Hope to be back again."
We had the most wonderful time in this beautifully appointed home with lush secluded surroundings. The house was exactly what we had imagined when looking for a country home with the rustic look but comfortable feel. The owners of the home were very gracious and we were very fortunate that they have opened their doors of this lovely home so that we could enjoy our Italian adventure. The home is only an hour away from the hectic city of Rome but it was enjoyable to return home to the quiet surroundings to sit and enjoy a glass of wine. A true gem! Thank you Paola🍷
La maison de Paola est un petit havre de paix niché dans la campagne italienne. A la bordure du parc régional, cette maison bénéficie de toutes les commodités. La campagne est particulièrement vivante et nous avons pu apprécié sa diversité. Le préau est particulièrement agréable l'été. Nous étions 2 couples avec 2 enfants et nous avons beaucoup apprécié la région tout en revenant nous poser à la maison le soir. Paola est une hôte attentionnée et elle a à coeur le confort de ses invités.
Insieme a mia moglie e altri amici, ho soggiornato presso il casale a settembre dello scorso anno per una settimana circa.
Eravamo alla ricerca di un po’ di tranquillità e di quiete, e ne abbiamo trovate in abbondanza.
Pur essendo immerso nel verde della Sabina, non è stato difficilissimo raggiungerlo, grazie alle indicazioni della proprietaria, la signora Paola.
Le stanze sono carine, molto pulite e ben arredate, in autentico countryside style, così come l’ampio soggiorno con camino in pietra. Il casale è dotato di una bella e spaziosa cucina, completamente attrezzata, con un portico dove può essere piacevole e comodo pranzare, cenare o fare semplicemente un aperitivo. Il giardino, ben curato, offre la possibilità di rilassarsi ed estraniarsi per qualche giorno dal caos cittadino.
Pur essendo in una posizione incantevole in mezzo alla natura, il casale si trova in un punto assai favorevole anche per visite artistiche ed escursioni enogastronomiche . A pochi chilometri, infatti, si trovano alcuni dei borghi della Sabina più interessanti e belli da visitare, pieni di storia e di fascino, come Orvinio, l’Abbazia di Farfa, Fara in Sabina, Ascrea ecc., ma anche pieni di trattorie ed osterie pronte ad offrire i piatti più buoni della cucina tipica locale.
Senza dimenticare che Roma, con le sue bellezze, è a solo 40 minuti di macchina!
In breve, un bel posto, tenuto benissimo e conveniente!
