Additional Location Information

The mediaeval villages of Poggio Catino and Catino, home of the great monk Gregorio da Catino, prior of the famous Farfa abbey, situated 2.5 km away on the mountain side, east of the house, while the beautiful mediaeval walled town of Casperia is located on a hilltop, 7 km north of the house. Casperia has a lovely romanesque belltower at the duomo, and one of the most beautiful “presepe”, a nativity set in the environment of the Casperia town.
The tiny village of Cantalupo in Sabina (3 km northwest), home of the “canteloupe” mellons imported here from the first Christian missions in the Americas, displays on its hilltop the deteriorating but extremely rich country residence of Cardinal Cesi, created in the 16th century from an existing fortress, with its impressive porched facade by the Vignola school.The inside of this residence, unfortunately not available for visits, is completely and fantastically frescoed with grotesque scenes by the Zuccari brothers. Also within short pleasant drives of Umbria and the Franciscan places.
The colours of the surrounding country landscape towards the west remind one of the impressionist paintings, while woods and mountains are perfect for long treks or mushroom picking. Relaxing walks, bicycle and horse riding along the many paths or along the Tiber river, bird watching in the nearby Nazzano-Tevere-Farfa natural reserve, as well as angling on the Farfa river or pike fishing in the Tiber are exciting possibilities to enjoy the beauty of the Sabina hills. Excellent food to be purchased directly from the many small farms around, small, inexpensive but excellent “trattorie”, or just tasting local bread with the famous Sabina cold pressed olive oil and a glass of wine complete your sense of well being.
