- Mompeo, Rieti, Italy
In the mist of hills, forests, olive groves and rivers this house will excellently host your needs of a peaceful retreat, family reunions, or historic curiosity.
You will have the chance to explore beautiful nature and historic sites from the house with two master bedrooms, one large children's bedroom, and a large area for lounging and eating in front of a warm fireplace.
One of the most breathtaking parts of this house is the enormous terrace that overlooks the Roman valley. During the day and night the sites are ever changing and are a reason in themselves to come stay in this house.
Guests will have access to all parts of the house (except the cantina where we store the olive oil we produce) that include 3 bathrooms, the kitchen, the living room, dining room, the terrace, olive groves, and fireplace.
A choice for people looking for an authentic and quiet place. One hour away from Rome and from other cities of interest such as Spoleto, Orvieto, Todi, etc it is an ideal place from which to explore central Italy also offering an easy access to ROME and many other interesting places in the region and of central Italy.
The SABINA area is untouched by mass tourism and keeps all its charm thanks to its hill top towns of Medieval origins. The area is rich in history and would be of great interest to historically interested visitors.
The nearby hilltop towns 3-4 kms away (5-10 mins by car) are Mompeo, Salisano, Montenero. They are tiny medieval towns with coffee bars, small but well furnished delis, pharmacies, and much history. About 20 minutes away is the ancient and important abbey of Farfa with a great restaurant. Farfa also has a nice swimming pool that you can enjoy. As for stores and larger commercial shopping centers there is Poggio Mirteto which is 30 minutes away. The nearest 'city' is Rieti which also about 30 minutes away and it is where you will find everything you need.
An hour away from the house are Orvieto, Spoleto, Todi and of course Rome.
The house itself is quiet and isolated and will be a pleasant base to explore towns and nature.
You can walk around for miles enjoying nature but will need a car for the delis and the towns.
The grove that surrounds the house produces an incredible olive oil that you can view on
