Holiday villa near Rome - Surrounded by olive trees and vineyards in the gentle hills to the north of Rome is this charming small villa, located in the beautiful countryside of the Sabina region, just one hour away from Rome and only one mile from the village of Selci, with shops and restaurant.
The property has tiled floors, beamed ceilings and is elegantly furnished with country antiques giving a traditional Italian feel typical of this region. A spiral staircase links the ground floor to the first floor. There are spacious, unenclosed grounds of approximately two acres given over to lawn, roses and shrubs. A covered terrace offers a welcome place to relax in the shade whilst seating areas on the terrace around the pool offer a spot to dine al fresco. There are panoramic views towards the nearby village of Selci, less than a mile distant, with a backdrop of green hillside and woodland.
The nearby village of Selci offers local amenities whilst the eternal city of Rome is about an hour away; clients interested in archaeology may also wish to visit the Etruscan sites at Viterbo, Tarquinia and Tuscania. If you want to visit Rome but don't fancy driving and parking in the city, why not take the train from nearby Gavignano or Stimigliano stations, right into the heart of the capital? These local stations are about 15 minutes away and train times are available locally.
This villa is particularly convenient if you want the best of all worlds from your holiday. You're in the heart of the countryside, yet just a short train ride from all the wonders of Rome. For a change of pace, a little over an hour away is Lake Bracciano, which is noted for the cleanliness of its water: you can swim here, sail or windsurf. A charming place.

we all loved it,
Just to let you know that we had a wonderful stay at Villa Orazio. The villa is very a very charming rustic home, we all loved it, the gardens are beautiful and well tended and the pool was kept clean by the gardener who came every day. We were greeted by Rosa who showed us around the villa, she is a lovely lady, so very friendly. The owner was in contact with us throughout our stay to make sure that everything was okay, she also left us a welcome package of wine, bread and cheese which we thoroughly enjoyed. We enjoyed several meals at the restaurant about 10 minutes walk away, very friendly owner and staff. We would highly recommend the villa to anyone who likes a quiet relaxing holiday
Location: superb! Great countryside, Rome reachable by train. Villa: very rustic and cluttered, but basically sound (although shabby). Kettle and toaster didn't work but immediately replaced. Very efficient local contact: she was great!
