Resting on a hilltop on the edge of the Sabina Mountains, in the Province of Rieti, in Lazio, the medieval village of Casperia strikes many perfect balances. Less than an hour north of the wonders and bustle of Rome, Casperia combines easy access to the Eternal City with its own quiet serenity. One of the few towns in Europe prohibiting automobiles from its centro storico, or historical center, Casperia manages to retain the authentic beauty of its ancient heritage in an enchanting setting so close to Rome that many of its residents commute to work there daily.

Additional Location Information

Things to do: Catch one of the frequent commuter trains from nearby Poggio Mirteto Scalo and you can be in Rome in time for a breakfast of brioche and cappuccino, before spending the morning in the Vatican Museums, the Piazza Navona or the Villa Borghese. Enjoy lunch in the Campo dei Fiori or Trastevere, catch an afternoon train back to the calm of Casperia and relax with a glass of local wine as you watch the sun set over the Tiber Valley. End the day with a light meal on our balcony or enjoy a local specialty at one of the delightful nearby restaurants.

If Rome is not on the day’s agenda, the A-1 autostrada (the principle north-south motorway connecting nearby Rome to Umbria, Tuscany and points north) is only 15 kilometers away. With a rental car (bus services run to nearby villages, including the train station at Poggio Mirteto Scalo), one can easily spend the day in Umbria (Orvieto, Spoleto, Todi, Perugia and Assissi).

Other options: If you prefer to stay closer to home, you can visit the some of the many monasteries established by St. Francis dotting the nearby country-side, or shop for antiques in nearby Viterbo's historic San Pellegrino District, or explore the elegant remains of Hadrian's Villa and the Villa d'Este at Tivoli, only 45 minutes to the south.

Tired of wandering off? Take cooking lessons or yoga classes in Casperia, explore the intricacies of Casperia's cobbled streets, hike the adjacent countryside, or simply relax and enjoy the simple luxury and gorgeous views from the apartment.

Food and related essentials: Eating In: If you wish to make use of the well-equipped kitchen, plenty of local resources are readily available. Many essentials may be purchased at the local alimentari (grocery store) in the centro storico, a three-minute walk away, and more can be found at the larger alimentari, just a few minutes walk further on (near the parcheggio). Right outside Casperia’s main gate you will find a butcher shop and a pasticceria selling rice and gluten-free pasta, gelato and pastries. A five-minute walk down Via Roma from Casperia's main gate, fresh, hand-made pasta is available, and if they don’t have what you want, ask and they’ll make it special for tomorrow’s meal. If you can’t find it locally, a larger supermarket is a six- or seven-minute drive away in nearby Cantalupo in Sabina (you will have passed it driving in), and organic, top-quality, locally-produced cheeses, lamb, wine and olive oil (from the Sabina’s own award-winning D.O.C. area) is available locally.
