The holiday farm lies on the gentle slopes of the hills surrounding Poggio Mirteto, a charming village in the Valle del Farfa on the borders of Umbria and Abruzzo, a mere stone’s throw from Rome.
It is an ancient country farmhouse nestling among olive trees, vineyards and fruit trees, surrounded by brightly-coloured flowers, aromatic herbs, and a splendid vegetable garden which provides highly-scented and tasty vegetables at all seasons.
The farmhouse has four comfortable rooms furnished with taste and simplicity, a large airy living room with a fireplace and glass windows which overlook a marvellous garden surrounded by cypress and mimosa trees, marigolds and rosemary bushes and offer a panoramic view over the surrounding area. Breakfast and other meals are served in this cosy common space.
The cuisine which the farm offer is prepared directly by the owner with products from the farm and neighbouring lands, and aspires to be an embodiment of freshness and flavour, using natural products and a pinch of creativity.
This is A project, a dream which has slowly grown: the desire to welcome and host people who are deeply enamoured of Nature and Simplicity, people with whom the love for the land and its beauty can be shared.
We offer 4 rooms, located on the first floor with a marvellous view over the surrounding countryside.
The rooms are spacious and airy, with rustic arte povera furniture that reflects the simplicity of rural life. Each room has its own heating system, bathroom, satellite TV, hairdryer and complimentary toiletries. The attention to detail can be seen not only in the furnishings, but also in the choice of high-quality bed-linen, soft bathroom towels, hand-painted tiles, and natural hand-made soaps produced here in the Sabine area.
The rooms, each one different from the others, have been given the names of the wild herbs which grow most profusely around the holiday farm: Gramigna, Asparagina, Mentuccia and Pimpinella .
A lavish breakfast with entirely home-made products such as biscuits, cakes, fruit tarts, bread, jams, fresh-squeezed juices, herbal teas, yogurt and fresh fruit greet the guests when they wake. Breakfast is served on the veranda or, on sunny days, in the coolest corners of the garden and, in winter, in front of a crackling log fire.
On request, guests can also have an English breakfast.
Asparagina (Wild asparagus) is a romantic double room with open beams, located above the arches of the main porch, from which there is a splendid view over the orchard and giant mimosa tree.
It has an en suite bathroom with Jacuzzi tub, and walk-in wardrobe.
It is ideal for a couple or friends.
