Monteleone Sabino, Latium 6

An evocative little residence created from the remnants of a beautifully restored Roman/Medieval tower, with ceilings in centuries-old oak planks, thick stone walls and handmade terracotta tile floors. The rustic antique furnishings complement a massive oak and travertine fireplace. La Torretta looks out over a shady stone terrace with jasmine-covered wrought ironwork that offers a magnificent view of the valley below.

Monteleone Sabino, Latium 6+4

A large 3-storey house built over Roman baths dating back to the 2nd century AD. The broad arched window of its spacious living room looks onto a lush garden; floors are in handmade terracotta and ceilings supported by massive chestnut beams. The kitchen, with its thick masonry walls, occupies a space that once communicated with the Roman era cistern still in use in the garden. Antique furniture, ample windows looking out over green valleys, all combine to create an atmosphere steeped in history and much beloved as a home.

Monteleone Sabino, Latium 6

Overlooking a deep, wooded valley, caressed by the shade of hundred-year-old olive trees and the scent of citrus and rosemary, the Franciscan monks of the nearby monastery would come here several centuries ago to do their laundry at an immense, double-basin stone fountain fed by the fresh cold waters of an underground coastal spring, which still stands under the protection of a narrow clay-tiled roof. The nearby swimming pool takes in the sweeping panorama alongside a lovely olive-shaded patio.

La casa di Maco

La casa di Maco

Monteleone Sabino, Latium 6

A lovely cottage built over Roman ruins in the Sabine countryside with spectacular views over the valleys stretching westward towards the setting sun and Rome. An ideal spot for a relaxing holiday immersed in nature, and a perfect base for excursions into the regions of Lazio and Umbria and the city of Rome itself. The house is surrounded by olive groves, and its charming garden is bordered by Roman columns that are most likely the remains of a gateway to the ancient Roman city of Trebula Mutuesca, known today as Monteleone Sabino.

Porto Ercole, Tuscany 4

Far from all the noise and summer crowds, here you can only breathe in the sky, the sea and the forest; you follow the flight of swallows and peregrine falcons, you get drunk on the colours of flowers, foliage and butterflies, and by day and night you listen to the song of the leaves.
