Casa Poggio is an old stone farmhouse sleeping eight in the heart of the Sabine Hills, 30 miles north of Rome
Perfect for exploring Sabina's rolling countryside and hilltop towns; for Orvieto, Viterbo, Spoleto, Assisi and Perugia to the north; the pristine lakes of Bracciano and Bolsena to the west; as a base for day-trips into Rome (45 minutes by train), or simply for soaking up the spectacular views from the terrace where, on a clear day, you can see the silhouette of St Peter's on the far horizon. Small plunge pool, plus a choice of outdoor public pools and river swimming within a 15-minute drive.
'We spent the first few days just sitting on the
terrace or in the garden reading novels from
the well-stocked bookshelves, watching
bee-eaters, lizards and humming-bird hawk
moths and enjoying the fantastic views.'
- Mick Hodgkin
'A wonderful place to recharge batteries.'
