HERE TO GREET YOU
Beatrice, our house manager, speaks English and will go out of her way to help make your stay enjoyable. She and her husband Mario look after our land and also ensure the smooth running of Casa Poggio. They live at La Casa Nettarina, an organic agriturismo down the road, where you'll find excellent jams, oil, eggs and liqueurs.
Irene, our housekeeper, also speaks English and is an excellent babysitter. She and her mother Simonetta run popular pasta making classes at Casa Poggio which end with a feast on the terrace; they also cook fabulous dinners or lunches for special occasions. If you're feeling lazy, they provide a drop-off service of home made soups, lasagne, etc.
Nearest airports are Rome Fiumicino or Rome Ciampino, from which you will hire a car and follow the ring-road north to the A1 Florence-Naples motorway. The first motorway exit brings you into the Sabine Hills. The 40-mile journey takes around an hour and a quarter.
You can also fly to Perugia: a longer journey (70 miles) but scenic, following the Tiber past the medieval hilltop town of Todi. Late arrivals can catch a train direct from Rome Fiumicino to Poggio Mirteto (90 mins). You’ll need picking up as there are no taxis at the station.
