If you are looking for somewhere to relax mind, body and soul then this is the place for you: private XIX century stone house with a spectacular lake view.
Perched on a hillside overlooking the crystal clear waters of Lake Turano, this charming residence is situated in one of the 100 most beautiful villages in Italy, Castel di Tora. It not only boasts a lake view from every one of its windows but also directly from your bed! This is the place to leave all the hustle and bustle of city life behind. Our house has 2 double bedrooms each with its own bathroom with shower and a wonderful kitchen complete with an open fireplace and larder carved directly out of the mountain rock.
The town of Castel di Tora is only 50 minutes from Rome (80km) and dominates Lago Turano which is rich in marine fauna and a natural pool for keen swimmers. You can rent a canoe or boat to navigate the lake which is surrounded by a range of mountains offering a variety of activities for those of you who want to really take in the beautiful countryside. The area is full of nature reserves offering trekking and day excursions for both the amateur and expert trekker and a number of stables in the area provide safe riding facilities for those interested in seeing the surroundings from horseback.
With plenty of excellent local restaurants within walking distance and a range of nearby historic villages complete with amazing castles and churches to visit, its easy to combine relaxation with culture.
And last but definitely not least, don't forget that the Sabina area is renowned for its culinary skills and local delicacies and is the perfect place to taste exquisite truffles, mouthwatering chestnuts and authentic olive oil.
Interested? If necessary, we would be pleased to organise transfers from/to Rome.
Please feel free to contact us if you would like to receive any further information.
Hope to have you soon as our guests :)!

We never actually met the hosts but we met a friend who gave us the keys and did her best to explain everything there is to know. We had good contacts via email so we can certainly say the contact was good and helpfull.
