History of the Villa: The Santa Cristina Estate belongs, for many generations, to one of the most old aristocratic family in the Sabina, the counts Orsolini Cencelli.

The main Villa, Santa Cristina, was built in the second half of the 18th Century. Its ancient walls have been through periods of ancient and recent history. In fact, in the land adjacent to the villa, there are several archaeological finds dating back to the second century BC., the Etruscan period, and which now form part of the collection of the Museum of Magliano Sabina

During World War II it was used as a hospital by German soldiers.

After the War, Count Valentino Orsolini Cencelli retired to his private life there. He was the father of the present owner, and was a famous Italian politician of the '30s, best known for directing the draining of the Pontine Marshes, and for founding the cities of Sabaudia and Latina.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable dans une villa superbe, ombragée d'arbres centenaires et jouissant d'une vue merveilleuse. L' accueil est très chaleureux, le domaine et la villa sont extrêmement bien tenus, et nous avons pleinement profité de la piscine, du tennis ... Magliano Sabina et Calvi del'Umbria, les deux villages proches sont charmants et leurs habitants d'une grande gentillesse . Connaissant déjà la merveilleuse Orvieto, Nous avons découvert Viterbe, et de nombreux autres villages et lieux et paysages pleins de charme et surprenants, peu connus. Des lieux choisis, peu de touristes (sauf italiens) : grands habitués de la Toscane "doc" et de l'Ombrie très fréquentées, nous avons apprécié notre chance . Nous espérons renouveler l'expérience !. Grazie ancora .

Absolutely Magnificent Holiday Home.

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot express how magnificent this villa is! The villa is absolutely stunning and the grounds beautifully kept. Numerous bedrooms make this an ideal property for larger groups. The pool and BBQ area (with its own kitchen and changing/ toilet rooms) gave us many, many happy hours. Within 50 minutes you can be in Rome or at the coast. The views are simply stunning. The lift was an added bonus for my sister who has mobility problems. The local village has all the facilities you might need, including two very good and reasonably priced supermarkets. There are several reasonably priced restaurants all just a short drive away. The wonderful games room also gave us many hours of entertainment. The daily maid service is also an added bonus, and totally unobtrusive. Fresh towels and bedding replenished frequently, even in the pool house, made life so much easier.This holiday was a slice of Heaven on Earth!!! Every description of this villa is accurate ( in fact so much more was offered than described) The property is lovely and clean and well maintained with numerous interesting facts about the house displayed for your perusal. Daniella is an absolute treasure and Laurentia so lovely and easy to deal with. The response to questions always prompt with excellent customer service. I would definitely recommend this property to family and friends and can't wait to return!

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Santa Cristina. First, the 360-view is just breathtaking. Second, both the house and the garden are really nice and comfortable. The pool is big and perfect for kids. Finally, you have so many activities to do in the area - discover Mozarella factories, visit small towns... Also, whenever you need something, you can always count on the help of the landlords!

We really loved our stay at Santa Cristina!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We came , our family and some friends

We were desperately seeking sun and rest after a rather busy year

The villa was spotless , as advertised

Our hosts were welcoming

We used Santa Cristina as a base to visit Rome , a mere hour away

We started early and were back for a lazy lunch at about 15,00

Afternoon in the pool and/or visiting places around Magliano

Very good italian food at GLI ANGELI that also has a superb restaurant

Nice Pizzeria close to the villa

I would definitely recommend Santa Cristina to friends & plan to return

I almost forgot : what is striking is the silence , the peace

The view on the olive trees , grapes and surrounding hills is also very nice

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Fiumicino International Airport at 90 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Pizzeria with local food at 2 Kilometres Nearest Train : Civita Castellana / Magliano Sabina at 10 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Motorway A1 Rome - Florence at 10 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : 'Ristorante degli Angeli' 5 star restaurant at 4 Kilometres Car: recommended

Villa Santa Cristina is situated in Lathium, in a very convenient position perfect for sightseeing Rome but also Umbria and Tuscany.

The Estate is at 5 km from the village of Magliano Sabina, in the heart of the enchanting Sabina Region. Thirty miles north-east of Rome and untouched by mass tourism, this territory is still authentic and unspoilt. Its landscape of gentle hills where agriculture is in perfect harmony with the surrounding nature, is scattered with Roman villas, medieval castles, churches and abbeys.

Along pleasant country roads, you can easily reach breathtaking places still little known by tourism.

The motorway A1, at a few miles, gives instead easy and quick access to some of the most important artistic sites of central Italy, such as Viterbo, Orvieto, Spoleto, Perugia and also Arezzo, Florence and Siena.

Rome itself is just a few miles away, and very easy accessible, in less then one hour, by train or car
