Best of both worlds
Choosing a rental villa near Rome allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds on your holiday – away from tourist crowds you’ll get a better sense of the real Italy, a chance to savour some slow travel and some lesser known sights of Lazio, without missing out on the wonders of Rome.
here you can relax in total privacy and quiet, take time to gaze at the spectacular views and distant horizons, contemplate the blue of an Italian sky. There’s plenty of room indoors and out at the villa, as well as a gas barbecue and a frame pool in summer.
Once you’ve recharged a little, take time to explore the Sabine Hills, discover ruined castles and fairytale villages untouched since medieval times, wander in the woods a little, check out the local gelato in nearby Poggio Catino, or take the train into Rome for a day’s sightseeing.
A drive of an hour or so will get you to many incredible sights in Lazio: Roman Villas, Renaissance Palaces and gardens, unspoiled mountains, forests and lakes. Take a look at our top ten places to visit

Some reviews and comments left by our guests
Our family stayed at Villa degli Armeni for two months,from February to April 2017, and it was absolutely the best time. The house is located on top of a beautiful mountain and the view from the terrace is breathtaking. Barbecue place and sunny weather made our days at the villa even more enjoyable.The house itself is spacious, comfortable and filled with beautiful authentic designs. We fell in love with it at first sight! Special thanks to Kate and her husband for being such wonderful hosts, helping us with any questions we had and for making our stay so easy and relaxed. We really hope to come back to this amazing place again someday!Ekaterina -March 2017
The VIEW is incredible! We stayed for one night and ate and drank Italian wine on the terrace and watched the sunset. A magical experience!!! Best villa view we have every seen. Master bedroom has the beautiful views too!LJ -June 2016
We stayed, sadly, for just one night, I've never experienced such peaceful surroundings! The house is surrounded by forest, but from the porch you have an incredible view. The interiors are fantastic, and well looked after, the house is very welcoming and well organised. I will be back!Alessio -September 2015
Time to relax .... We spent 7 relaxing days in the hinterland of Rome. The house is very generous with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen and several terraces. The decor is very tasteful, besides many books there are also board games for children. In the kitchen there is everything needed for cooking and baking. We felt very comfortable here. Especially the location with a great panorama was impressive. There is neither traffic noise nor noisy neighbors! Kate is a very good hostess always helpful also tips for excursions and sightseeing always available. We can highly recommend a stay with you.
I was born in the UK but moved to Italy many years ago. When I discovered the Sabina area I couldn't believe there could be such an unspoiled area right on the doorstep of Rome. I'm passionate about sharing the subtle charms of the Sabina with guests from all over the world, and opening my home to them.
