The ancient rural complex of “Antico Podere Santa Barbara” is set on an enchanting hilltop, on a 20 hectares estate encircled by oaks and chestnut woods in the heart of the Etruscan countryside. A fascinating secluded retreat, yet close enough to the highlights of the area, first Rome, just 50 minutes' drive.

The property includes two quiet and comfortable holiday homes, ”The stable ” and " The ancient farmhouse " surrounded by a wide and neat garden with panoramic pool, trimmed grasses, flourishing hedges, outdoor verandas and an antique woodstove. "The Stable" and "The ancient Farmhouse" are fully independent, with separate entrance, own garden, dedicated area on the pool terrace, but close enough to be shared by one large group up to 30 people. There are many wonderful outdoor seating and eating areas, whether for two people or thirty!

The cottage The Stable has been divided into two independent and connected holiday homes.

- "The Stable" can host 14/15 persons. Created by an old horse barn, the holiday home is tastefully decorated and paved in terracotta. It is perfect for large groups of friends or family gatherings, yet guaranteeing enough privacy to everyone.

The seven bedrooms, all except one with ensuite bathroom, gather around the large and bright living room.

In the living room the big table of the dining area, the warm reading room, the sofas around the fireplace offers a lot of opportunities to enjoy the company. The cosy kitchen next door is fully equipped with a large stove with baking oven, dishwasher, fridge with freezer compartment, washing machine, toaster and oversize pots and pans. The kitchen opens out directly onto the covered outdoor loggia with a barbecue facing the pool area. The air is sweet with jasmine climbing up the columns of the spacious shady veranda, furnished with table and chairs for al fresco lounging and dinner. From the living room with beamed ceiling all bedrooms are accessible. Each of them (apart from a triple room) has a small ensuite bathroom and a short hallway offering a maximum of privacy and it is decorated with different colours and typical furnishing.

- "The small stable“ , suitable for 6 persons, lays in the front part of the restored former horse barn, surrounded by furnished blooming pergolas. On 110 sqm living area you will find a comfortable dining room with French door that leads outside into a veranda with climbing jasmine pergola. Two double rooms with ensuite bathroom and one double room with French door face a larger jasmine covered veranda and furnished with table and chairs; a comfortable and well fitted kitchen also overlooks the western garden.

On the hilltop overlooking the Etruscan landscape stands " The antique farmhouse“.

The former monastery has been thoroughly renovated in traditional style and offers two twin bedrooms and one large triple room, three bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen and a large living room with dining area.

The massive walls give witness to its past as a monastery dating to XVIII century.

Via an antique external stone stairway you access the first floor where you find the spacious and bright living room with sofas, fireplace and a large dining table beneath a beautiful beamed ceiling. On the left side there is the charming and well fitted kitchen. A long hallway connects and separates at the same time the living and sleeping area: two twin bedrooms and one triple bedroom overlooking the dense wood are furnished simply and matching the rural atmosphere. The triple bedroom has an ensuite shower bathroom. One bathroom with tub and one bathroom with shower are also available.

On the ground floor of the ancient farmhouse there is a very large hall for parties and for playing table tennis.

Behind the house, a charming furnished pergola covered with climbing vine and a woodstove is waiting for the guests.

An hedge with yellow flowers in full bloom and olive trees surrounds the pool (6m x 12m, depth 1,50m, open from May to October) with exterior shower, sunshades and deck chairs. The panoramic position is a lovely setting overlooking the Etruscan landscape.

A path leads through the forest to the town of Sutri with its Roman amphitheatre. Within walking distance of the estate there is a railway station with trains going to Rome. You can park on the property.

Due grandi casali di campagna immersi in una natura rigogliosa ed intatta, in un'area ricca di risorse naturali ed archeologiche tra il lago di Bracciano e il lago di Vico, a soli 50 km da Roma. Luogo ideale per ospitare i più vari momenti di vacanza e di festa.

I Casali di "Santa Barbara" si affacciano su una valle incontaminata che confina con il parco archeologico e naturalistico di Sutri e godono di un paesaggio naturale intatto e suggestivo.

La posizione sopraelevata su un rilievo di tufo testimonia l' antica origine di insediamento etrusco del luogo, un'oasi di verde nel cuore della Tuscia meridionale.

La proprietà, di 25 ettari, comprende due residenze, “Il Casale antico” e”La Stalla”, circondati da un giardino esteso e curato. Nei due grandi casali ogni luogo, dai salotti, alle stanze, alle verande è stato creato perchè gli ospiti possano trascorrere le giornate in un'atmosfera piacevole e distensiva.

“Il Casale” che conserva l'originaria struttura del monastero del Settecento da cui deriva, accoglie al piano superiore un appartamento spazioso e pieno di luce che guarda il paesaggio boschivo circostante.

L'appartamento è composto da un grande soggiorno con travi a vista e camino, tre camere doppie con tre bagni, una deliziosa cucina perfettamente attrezzata.

Al piano terra (220 mq) sono stati ricavati due ampi spazi dal soffitto con volte di mattoni a vista ed archi in pietra: luogo ideale per ospitare diverse occasioni di festa e di incontro.

“La Stalla” è divisa in due unità abitative indipendenti e comunicanti.

L'appartamento grande - caratterizzato da un luminoso ed ampio soggiorno con camino e da una più raccolta sala lettura - può ospitare 14/15 persone.

Attorno al soggiorno si aprono sei camere doppie con bagno e una camera doppia con veranda. La cucina, spaziosa e ben attrezzata è esposta su due verande panoramiche.

Il secondo appartamento, per sei persone, è costituito da un accogliente soggiorno che si affaccia su una veranda incorniciata da fiori, due camere doppie con bagno e una doppia che si apre su una più ampia e attrezzata veranda, una cucina comoda e funzionale che dà anch'essa sul giardino.

The Lazio region

Latium is mostly known for its capital. Rome is worth a trip in every season. A whole life wouldn't be enough to visit all the sights of the Eternal City. But the central region of Italy, the heart of the antique Roman Empire offers also astounding landscapes ( rolling hills, wide valleys, woods, lakes and coasts), many of the best Unesco - world heritage sites of Italy and also the greatest number of lakes and rivers. The lakes Bolsena of Vico and Bracciano, of volcanic origin, boast some of the best water qualities in Italy.

Etruria, the land of the Etruscans, is waiting. This people has already left its mark before the Romans in form of impressive cities and necropolis. The visit to the several Etruscan Necropolis is certainly one of the highlights of traveling trough Latium.

In a relaxing atmosphere it's easy to history lovers enjoy the witnesses of antiquity. Latium has been - apart from Rome - spared mass tourism and is thus almost an insider's tip.

L'antico podere Santa Barbara si trova a breve distanza da Sutri, in una posizione strategica a metà strada tra Roma e Viterbo, nella Tuscia meridionale. La regione ha un patrimonio storico ed archeologico ricco e vario.

Si possono ripercorrere le tappe della sua storia con brevi tratti in auto. Partendo dalle necropoli rupestri: Le più vicine sono quelle del Parco Archeologico dell'Antichissima Città di Sutri.

I casali dell'antico podere Santa Barbara si trovano su un verde rilievo di tufo. Il paesaggio è tipicamente etrusco: prati verdissimi, boschi fitti e rigogliosi, sorgenti d'acqua, torrenti che nei secoli hanno scavato profonde forre e hanno creato i profili scoscesi delle pareti di tufo. La valle su cui si affacciano i casali si chiama "valle Mazzano" è percorsa dal tracciato dell'antica via Francigena.

E' ricchissima di bellezze naturali, di una fauna molto varia e di reperti archeologici notevoli come il "Castrum di Caporipa", fortificazione che gli Etruschi costruirono nel tentativo di difendersi dall'avanzata romana.
