About This Listing
Casperia rests on a hilltop on the edge of the Sabina hills.
Experience the tranquility of a tranquil medieval village just 1 hour north of the wonders and bustle of Rome with 2 en-suite bedrooms. The local station, Poggio Mirteto, is only 40 minutes from Rome, Tiburtina.
Our apartment has been meticulously restored from its 12th century origins and offers guests to share in the delights of Casperia and its strategic location. It is one of the few towns in Europe prohibiting automobiles from the historical centre.
Sabina is renowned for its olive oil and local tastings are available. It is possible to enjoy lunch in Rome at the Campo dei Fiori or Trastevere and take an afternoon train back to the calm of Casperia and relax with a glass of local wine while watching the sun go down over the Tiber Valley.
You can take cooking lessons or yoga classes. If you wish to explore further afield Florence is 2 hours away while the famous towns of Orvieto and Assisi are significantly less.
Sample traditional Italian food including local pizza, all within the area.
About the Host, Robin
I am a chartered accountant having qualified in 1973 in Cardiff, Wales.
On qualifying I worked in Rome for 2 years with intrnational accounting firm, Deloittes and subsequently developed my own accounting firm in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, UK.
While there I kept a yacht in Salcombe and Plymouth, Devon from where we sailed to France and the Channel Islands.
Needing another challenge I moved back to Italy in 2006 with my wife, Elizabeth who speaks Welsh (not always useful in Italy!!) where I started renovating property including one in Mougins, near Cannes, France.
My love of rugby has taken me on a British Lions tour to Australia and follow Wales in South Africa. Further travels have taken us to Mauritius, Kuala Lumpur and Langkawi in Malaysia as well as most of Europe and a cruise on the Nile.
As a result of this we have built up a good idea of what people want when staying away from home.
