Casa Poggio

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.'
- Lotta Nordin
