About This Listing
In a field surrounded by olive groves, hills and mountains. No road noise. Enjoy the tranquility, and 365 degree views while relaxing by the pool or on the rose strewn terrace. One visitor wrote 'breakfast with bird song and lavender.' Bliss.
I have a beautiful, rustic, farm house in Italy, on a small olive grove in unspoilt Sabina, and only an hour from Rome. There are 365 degree views, no traffic noise, peace and tranquility and a swimming pool. One visitor wrote "Breakfast with bird song and lavander."
Although the listing only says there is one room, I have one double room and one twin room, both with en suite. I'm happy for visitors to use the lounge and to make drinks in the kitchen. I am also happy to provide lunch and evening meal if booked in advance and would love you to share a little of my life. I am English by the way, not Italian, but have lived here for 10 years.
I am happy for guests to relax, chill, chat, swim and join me in a game of Scrabble if they so wish. Oh, did I say, I am a bridge player. But I am also happy to give guests there space.
San Giorgio is a small village with one shop and a pretty wooden bar. The village is near the Medieval town of Tarano which can be seen from one of the guest rooms. There are many ancient villages (with their beautiful churches full of frescos), to explore in this unspoilt area of Italy and yet near Rome and Orvieto and on the Umbrian border. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from and Poggio Mirteto is a large town just 30 mins drive away.
The A1, Rome-Florence, is 20 mins away and the railway station just 15 mins away.
My home is a hide away in the country, no traffic noise, just the sounds of the country, birds, sheep, the occasional tractor. Many guests come and just relax round the pool for the first few days. Come and see for yourself.
The price is per person per night B.& B.
Kitchen to make drinks. Lounge, wifi, swimming pool, terrace and garden.
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as they wish.
Rural Italy at it's best. I love the space, the medieval towns and villages, hills strewn with olive trees, the mountains, the bird song.
Public transport is a problem. There is a bus from my village but it is infrequent. The station is 15 mins drive away and it takes an hour on the train to Rome.
Relax, enjoy, share, chat, chill, swim.
Join me in a game of Scrabble, Bridge etc. if you wish.
Eat on the terrace enjoying the sunset.
Breakfast with bird song and lavender.
No smoking inside. No pets.
Unfortunately we only stayed here for only one night. What a beautiful location: very quiet (no traffic noise), superb views and a very friendly host. We were welcomed with prosecco, crisps and nuts. Pauline and her granddaughter gave us a warm welcome. We enjoyed the pool and in the evening we had a more than wonderful diner together with Pauline, her granddaughter and a friend. Also the breakfast in the morning was good. We hope to come back here in the future! Thanks Pauline.
What can be better than watching a spectacular sunset from a rose-strewn verandah with a glass of prosecco? Only the food in this beautifully restored farmhouse!
Casale Benedetti is a great place to stay, in peaceful, rural surroundings, and every comfort is provided by the welcoming owner, Pauline.
Thank you, I hope to come again one day
Pauline was a fabulous host, she met me off the train and took me on a wonderful scenic drive where I visited Calvi a lovely medieval town. We then arrived at her beautifully renovated farmhouse, and sat and watched the sun set while drinking Prosecco ( Italian champagne) While freshening up in my en suite bathroom . Pauline cooked a delicious meal of soup, fresh salmon , and fruit salad soaked in Limoncello which including wine was only 25 Euros . I can totally recommend Pauline , I will be definitely coming back for a longer stay.
