KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Traditional and full of character, this independent holiday villa with terraced garden grounds and private pool is situated just a short walk from the medieval walled village of Collevecchio in Sabina, just an hour northeast of Rome. The house offers a magnificent views over the valley and the village has shops, bar and restaurants.
The house has been beautifully restored to retain its Sabine authenticity and style and and the name of the house "Sotto le Mura" translates as "under the walls". Despite the close proximity of the village you have here the 'feel' of the countryside that surrounds you, this is partly due to the peaceful nature of these little villages, but also to the fabulous views of the valley with its landscape of olive groves and vineyards. Here you get the best of both worlds, the views of the countryside with all the facilities offered by a charming medieval village.
The charm of this relatively unknown area, with its olive groves and vineyards and its proximity to the medieval and renaissance delights of Italy, makes it a wonderful place for a perfectly relaxing and cultural holiday.
