Monteleone Sabino, Latium 6

The ideal spot for a holiday immersed in the beauty of nature and history. This cosy, rustic cottage is in fact built over Roman ruins near what was probably the gateway to the ancient Roman city of Trebula Mutuesca. It is surrounded by a garden that borders on unspoiled meadows and woods stretching westward toward the Soratte mountain ridge above Rome.

The space

Beneath playfully pitched rooves supported by chestnut beams are two bedrooms, a comfortable living room with fireplace, two bathrooms and a spacious, well-appointed kitchen that looks out onto the garden. All floors are in terracotta, bathrooms lined in hand-painted tiles, and furnishings are simple and tasteful.

Enjoy tranquillity and silence, taking off when you choose to visit the sites of Rome, Tivoli or Ostia Antica; make an excursion to Mount Terminillo (2100 metres) or Lake Turano (15 km), or even venture as far as Perugia or Naples and back the same day. Everything is close by, but perhaps you’d prefer to simply stay put and enjoy nature, read a book, take some sun or go out and pick a basket full of cherries, figs and apricots to make marmalade.

I’ll be there to welcome you personally, ready and willing to suggest itineraries and places to eat well and have fun, and to make sure yours is a truly unforgettable vacation.
