About the property

Tenuta Santa Cristina

The Santa Cristina Estate is situated in the heart of the enchanting Sabina Region. 50 km north-east of Rome and untouched by mass tourism, this territory is still authentic and unspoilt. Its landscape of gentle hills, is scattered with Roman villas, medieval castles, churches and abbeys.

The property is composed by 4 private villas. All villas are immersed in their own private garden and are situated on the cusp of a hill with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside, where a notable red wine is produced as well as a formidable extra virgin olive oil.

Villa Laurentia and Villa Mary each has a private swimming pool (12 x 5 m/deep; 1,20-1,40 m/depth). Villa Domitilla and Villa Sveva are semi-detached properties and share a large swimming pool (14 x 7 m/deep; 1,20 - 1,40 m/depth) with two private changing cabins. Villa Domitilla and Villa Laurentia are handicapped equipped for the disabled. All villas have free wi-fi internet broadband.

The Estate: Tenuta Santa Cristina, located between Lathium and Umbria, is part of the large estate of the Orsolini Cencelli family, one of the oldest aristocratic families of the Sabina area. The property dominates the valley and sits in the middle of 100 ha (250 acres) estate. The village of Magliano Sabina is 4kms away from Tenuta Santa Cristina and features bars, a chemist, bakers, butchers, supermarket, banks with cash points (ATM), post office, photographers, toy shop, clothing stores and ice-cream parlour. There's even a small theatre.

A local grocery store selling home-made products and locally-culled meat is only 1500 m from the estate and a small supermarket is just over 3 km away. A handy pizzeria is 500m away and a locally renowned restaurant is 1500m away. At 3 km from the estate, you will find the famous “Cantina dei Colli Sabini” where you can taste and buy our own wine and oil. In the unlucky event, there is also a hospital at 5 minutes by car from the villa

The Area: The villas are nestled amongst the rolling undulating hills of the Lathium, land of the Etruscans, the Ancient Romans and many Popes. The property enjoys a fine position overlooking its very own vineyard and the surrounding countryside of Lathium and Tuscany. Rome awaits you just to the south (72 km-45M) with its enormous historical and cultural heritage revealing archaeological sites, splendid renaissance and baroque palaces and of course the Vatican City, Sovereign Seat of the Pope and home to the largest collection of art and antiquities in the world.

The world of Etruscans is also nearby to the west at Viterbo(50 km-31M), Vulci(100 km-62M), Cerveteri and Tuscania (70 km-43M) with its interesting Etruscan tombs, One may also embark on a pilgrimage tracing the footsteps of St.Francis of Assisi which starts at Rieti (51 km-31M). The magnificent Florence is at 210 km (131M).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Large family group stayed in four of the villas: villa Laurentia, Mary, Domitilla and Sveva, and we had a smashing time. Villas were clean, spacious and comfortable. Adults and young ones were spoilt for choice with access to three pools and many a lazy afternoon and evenings were spent enjoying the pools and sporting facilities. We were well looked after by the owners and key holder. The welcome pack of groceries and bottles of wine went down a treat. Nothing was too much trouble. Owners helped to organise catering for our large party, incluidng birthday cakes. The attention to detail contributed to great week for all.

Great villas, beautiful views, great commuting distance to Roma and other cities sites in Italy. We certainly recommend for families, friends, groups and hope to be back sometime.
