With all the buzz centered around Rome nowadays, a countryside retreat just over an hour from the Eternal City may be just the perfect place to rest and unwind from a day of grand touring. The scenery matches the picture perfect enchantment of Tuscany while offering easy proximity to Rome. By car, Rome is just over an hour away. A 10 minute drive leads to a train station with free parking and frequent rail service into Rome's Tiburtina station where the convenient Metro is located.

Aptly named, the Olive Garden is comprised of the owner's villa and two rental cottages found amidst the groves of a family run, extra virgin olive oil producing estate. The kind and friendly owners of the Olive Garden along with their trusty, black Lab tend over 16 acres of olive trees and a variety of flora including palms, fruit and nut trees.

The two rental cottages each have their own private and furnished outdoor space. Cottage Vacuna shares a swimming pool with the owners and their guests, while Cottage Saba has its own private pool.

Vacuna is a charming one bedroom bungalow a few feet behind the owner's villa set just above the pool area. A spectacular panorama of the Tuscan-like countryside and Sabine Mountains can be enjoyed from the cottage's fenced in and furnished lawn.

Cottage Vacuna is the classic country cottage with the added benefits of air conditioning, screened windows, a large Jacuzzi-style shower and a good sized kitchen. Upon arrival, guests often request the owners to program the thermostat to coincide with the times they expect to depart and return from day trips in order to minimize utility costs.

The Olive Garden is an ideal property for guests seeking the friendly, English-speaking guidance and hospitality offered by its owner. To maximize your stay, improve your familiarity with the area and tantalize your tastebuds, the owner, who is an official olive oil sommelier offers the following with each rental:

  • A 90 minute tour of the family's oil producing estate explaining from the grove to the bottle and focusing on how recognize fine olive oil. Three estate oils are sampled. Purchases may be conveniently shipped home.

  • A personally guided morning stroll through nearby Poggio Mirteto designed to introduce you to the town's best baker, farm stand, butcher, deli and topped off with a cappuccino at the town's best coffee shop.

  • Perhaps, the most priceless advantage of all is having this knowledgeable owner act as your personal resource throughout the length of your stay. Discover the best ways in and out of Rome during the times you wish to go; where insiders dine well at reasonable prices; what not to miss both in the city and the magnificent countryside around you and much more.
The rental price also includes: a mid-week towel change and Wi-Fi. Cleaning service may be arranged when booking.

A narrow mile long road leads from the town of Poggio Mirteto to Cottage Saba's unpaved driveway. It takes less than five minutes by car to reach this delightful little, non-touristy town. This pre-Roman citadel of Sabine origin has several stores for all your immediate shopping needs. Rieti, the artsy provincial capital of the region is within a 40 minute drive.

Closer in, the area is full of ancient monasteries and hermitages along with beautiful rolling hills dappled with 11 lakes and a series of majestic mountains. Ideal for touring Rome by day and returning to the pristine countryside in the evening, this property is also positioned for day trips into Umbria with Terni, Orvieto or Todi within an hour's drive; Spoleto: 80 minutes; Perugia, L'Aquila in Abruzzo or Anzio on Lazio's coast: 100; Assisi or Montepulciano in Tuscany: 120.
