Il Casale di Max - A piece of heaven in the middle of Sabina country

Bedrooms 2
Space 2,690 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Swimming pool + jacuzzi hydromassage, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4+2

Old charming villa. The country house is divided into 3 floors.

The ground floor comprises the living area and the kitchen. The living area is dominated by beamed ceilings, stone arches & tiled floors whilst being stylishly decorated by the owners to create a welcoming feeling.

The first floor is not rented by the owners who live in Rome but sometime(usually once a week for some hours) use it as a logistic basis to supervise the property (e.g. to clean the swimming pool, to water the plants etc.).

On the top floor there are the two bedrooms which are accessible via an external staircase. The warm colours of the furnishings, the wood beams, the terracotta floor and the fireplaces exalt the pleasant atmosphere.

A swimming pool, a Jacuzzi, a beautiful open garden and a small soccer field allow guests to enjoy their free time

The property, located in the middle of a green, untouched country, is surrounded by big trees (oaks, pines, cypresses, olive trees and fruit trees) and by different types of flowers which especially in spring and autumn create a spectacular and warm mixture of natural colours.

What makes 'Il Casale di Max' unique?

If you rent two bed-rooms you will not have to share the entire property (including the swimming-pool) with any other customer and this will grant you a complete privacy and an incomparable comfort. Don't miss this incredible opportunity!

Everything we wished and we never dared to ask

This is a fantastic villa offering a unique experience. Wonderful pool with jacuzzi, very stilish building, beautiful garden and full privacy granted. Very nice guests and good restaurants nearby. What else could we ask for???

It is not easy to find the words to describe this unforgettable experience which left me only with wonderful memories.

A very beautiful country, a warm and historic villa, an amazing view, a wild nature in a lovely and comfortable place where to relax and to recharge batteries for the new year. What else could you ask for your holiday? Definitely a place not to miss!

A beautiful house in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday in this wonderful house in the beautiful Sabine hills.

The house, the grounds and the location were perfect, and the pool and the views across the hills are stunning.

Ornella was a great host and very helpful in providing us with delicious home-grown produce, and advice and directions for our trips to Rome. We all hope to return one day.

The right choice

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we entered the gate to Il casale di Max, we knew that we had made the right choice, and that it would be a beatiful and relaxing holiday. The warm reception at arrival, the charming house with its cosy rooms and well-found kitchen, not to mention the pool and the stunning views ... we loved every minute of our 2 weeks there and didn't even feel tempted to go sightseeing, even though lots of suggestions of "where to go and what to do" were found in the house. The Carrefour supermarket 10 minutes away was well-supplied, and we spent a number of evenings at the barbecue in the garden preparing sumptous meals and drinking local wine. A visit at the restaurant La vecchia quercia at walking distance is also recommendable if you feel like going out for a meal. But nothing beats the relaxing, sunny days at the pool reading books and enjoying the view - we would certainly like to return to Selci one day again to say hello to Ornella and Elio and have the benefit of staying at their beautifully restored casale.

Dream Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We visited here for one week at the start of July and it was probably the most relaxing holiday I have ever had. You can't imagine how fabulous this property actually is - we'd lie by the pool and be totally awestruck by the views. The photos on here do not do it justice at all, it really is better when you get there. The gardens are immaculate.

The surrounding area is quiet but there are many suggested itineries provided should you wish to explore. We didn't do too much as we couldn't drag ourselves away from the pool and jacuzzi!

Ornella is wonderful, helpful and kind.

I would love to come back here sometime in the future.

“Il Casale di Max” is an old farm house that is located in the middle of Sabina which is an area of the Lazio Region situated north of Rome between the Tiber river and the Sabini hills. Its central positions between Rome and the Umbria’s and Tuscany’s most famous towns allows the guests to visit, in a day, through easy and short trips, places whose beauty, from an artistic and a naturalistic point of view, is incomparable. The old farm house is located one hour from Rome by car or by train. It is also very well connected to the Fiumicino’s Airport thanks to the railway “Fiumicino – Roma Tiburtina - Fara Sabina – Gavignano - Orte”.
