Palombara Sabina, Province of Rome, Lazio
Villa La Tartaruga Sabina offers more than a simple vacation. It offers a unique experience: the best of the countryside, the city and the Italian tradition in one location: convenient railway links and easy auto routes to Rome make it possible to combine the rustic tranquillity of a magical landscape with the excitement of the Eternal City.

The family who owns the Villa has always nurtured and shared the pleasure of gathering with friends in the countryside for the family's most important festive occasions. It is in this tradition that the Villa was created. For the owner, sharing the family Villa is a special opportunity to expose international guests to the pristine (and often overlooked) beauty of a land they love -- a mere stone's throw from ROME.

We had a group of approximately 10 and booked a week. And what a week it was! A Beautiful Villa in a picturesque setting overlooking the valley. Not only did we learn how to make (and enjoy) wonderful Italian cuisine (and also enjoy great wine) - but we got to explore the countryside and the lifestyle in small Italian towns....

Our experience at La Cucina Sabina was a memorable one. Sounds birds singing, and smells of rosemary and lavender. Pulling cherries and figs off a tree on lovely morning walks. Taking a swim in a stunning pool, after a day of historical touring and cultural enrichment. Oh, and did I mention fun-filled, personal cooking classes in a modern, open kitchen...

Palombara Sabina is a charming ancient town, only 30 min from ROME (by train or car). Built on a hill at the foot of mount Gennaro and surrounded by olive and cherry trees typical of the region, Palombara Sabina has everything tourists may need: stores, restaurants, post office, hospital, etc. Of particular interest are the old town centre with the beautiful Savelli-Torlonia castle on the top of the hill, and the Abbey of San Giovanni in Argentella.
