The Lazio region

In the Rome country side, fifty kilometres North-East of Rome, following the eastern bank of the Tiber River and the Sabine Hills, lies the territory of Sabina.

The Sabina area is still authentic and unspoilt, untouched by mass tourism. It is a magical land of legends (the Rape of the Sabine woman among them), of castles, medieval little towns connected by winding country roads, elegant restaurants and family run taverne, and breath-taking scenery wherever you go. Famous is it's extra vergin olive oil with its Sabina DOP recognition.

Riding schools, golf courses immersed in the green countryside, along with Mount Terminillo ski resorts and several naturalistic itineraries, are some of the possibilities for sports lovers in an uncontaminated natural environment.

The Franciscan sanctuaries; the Farfa Abbey for centuries a witness to the power of the Roman Church; the Romanesque churches of Vescovio and Santa Vittoria; the archaeological sites and ancient Roman town of Trebula Mutuesca and Forum Novum as well as, the national parks and lakes, and the capital city Rieti are among the many attractions in Sabina.

Rome is at 45 minutes drive or at 50 minutes by a train service which gets, at its final stop, to the Rome International Airports of Fiumicino. The Rome International Airport of Ciampino is at 45 minutes drive.

Rieti

Casaprota is a medieval village (400 mt. far from Colle Cesoni) situated in the hearth of the Sabina area, between Via Salaria (the ancient Roman salt road) and the Sabine Hills. The first traces of the village date back to the Roman period.

Its social and economic life is profoundly shaped by two elements: its huge source of water which serve the aqueduct of the city of Rome and olive oil.

The ancient traditions of Sabina, entwined with religion and agriculture, can still be experienced in Casaprota. From early spring, to late autumn, the village is filled with a festive atmosphere, culminating with beautiful fireworks. You can't miss these events if you want to taste the old Italy and enjoy typical local gastronomic specialities.

Visit the historical centre, up to the village, and its hamlet Collelungo: strolling inside the walls, in its medieval narrow streets, talking to the old people that gather everyday on the same bench, in the sun.

A horse riding school, a public sport centre (3 tennis court Surface clay, mini football pitch, 2 swimming pool, 1 beach volleyball court, 3 ping pong tables, sauna) and several naturalistic and archaeological itineraries, are some of the attraction and relaxation possibilities for visitors in an uncontaminated natural environment.

Late October through mid December Colle Cesoni arranges for its guests a visit to the modern mill where virgin oil is squeezed from the olives ripe blackened shells. While at the mill, you will taste "Bruschetta", grilled bread dressed with extra virgin olive oil and garlic.
