Description from owner

Description

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 porches 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 cozy 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 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 designed for alfresco dining and evening entertaining. 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 traditional 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 porch with climbing jasmine pergola. Two double rooms with ensuite bathroom and one double room with French door overlook the western garden; a comfortable and well fitted kitchen flows out onto a spacious jasmine covered veranda, furnished with table and chairs for al fresco lounging and dinner.

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 family 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 the 18TH 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 equipped 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 (6 m x than 12 m, depth 1, 50 m, 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. A restaurant-pizzeria, a grocery store, a chemist, are just 1 km away from the summer. You can park on the property.

It's perfect for travellers who like a relaxing holiday in a convenient position. The property's peaceful location makes it a haven for visitors looking for a space for rest and recuperation in the privacy of their own villa.

“Perfect for large gathering”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2019

We had a family reunion at this lovely renovated farm house in Capranica for two weeks in September, 2019. There was ample room for our party of 15 (ages from 4 months to 84 yrs. Old). We came from all over – Hong Kong, South Africa, USA, and UK. Each bedroom had its own bathroom; the furniture was simple but adequate; the kitchen well stocked. The property is surrounded by hazelnut trees that were being harvested while we were there. We were close to supermarkets and a train station with trains going into Rome. There is plenty to do in the area such as wonderful walks to see the Etruscan tombs; the Parco Regionale Marturanum in Barbarano Romano; the medieval town of Viterbo; and walks along parts of the St. Francis Way. We would all come together in the evening for a swim in the pool and for preparations for dinner that we ate around the large dining table. One couple was adventurous and made pizzas in the outside brick oven. We also grilled on the barbeque. The owner, Beatrice was so accommodating and always available to answer questions. Highly recommend this villa for a large gathering.
