About sabrina

I was born in Rome where I attended university.My working experience was as a director of documentary about food, gardenig and tipical products.My life was good but very stressed in Rome so, I decided to spend more time in reunion with the nature.I moved to the coutryside in magliano sabina and decided to set up an organic farm.I started to plant and grown my own olives,around 400 plants,wineyard, fruit trees and vegetables, that has given me great pleasure. The result of my labours is a farm house where i now rent to guest and to offer them a great time to family and groups of friends.

Why sabrina chose Rieti Province

The villa build from my family 20 year ago.An architect designed the interior.We made all the paints,and trompe l'oeil.

I love this area because even if is located in a very silent and quite place in coutryside it is in near Rome,at only 50 km,reacheable by motorway or train.This is a rural area with fantastic views. Other cities such as Orvieto, Viterbo are at only 30 minuts of car.nearby there is an archaelogical site Ocriculum that worth the effort to visit it.

It is possible to book cooking class how to make pizza, lasagne, fettucine,pasta,and others.In the basement there is a big profesional kitchen.

What makes this villa unique

Walks on and nearby the propierty are both relaxing and perfect for photography.

Located on the border with Lazio and Umbria, Villa Surya is nestled just outside the

small village of Magliano Sabina. Only 30 miles from Rome, the Villa also boasts a strategic location to other renown areas and medioeval town suo as Viterbo, Spoleto, Narni, Orvieto, Civita Castellana, and Siena - all available for easy day trips by car.

Guestbook comments from the owner

surya magliano sabina

“excellent base for day trips in Lazio and Umbria

We were 6 family members and used Villa Surya as a base for day trips to Viterbo,Spoleto,Orvieto,Caprarola,Bomarzo,Montefiascone and Narni.We were able to make day trips to Rome with a special 7 euro ticket which also included bus transportation within Rome..so were able to visit a gallery,have lunch, and return to the peace and quiet of Magliano Sabina in the evening.Our hostess Sabrina give us tips on local eateries,and provided us with home made jams.

“One of the most memorable stays I've ever had.”

I spent 18 days at Villa Surya with a girlfriend and her grown son. Upon our arrival (an easy 45 minute drive into the countryside from Roma's Fiumicino Airport) we were greeting by our hostess, SabrinaVilla Surva is surrounded by olive and grape orchards, fruit.Excellent is the home-made wine, jams, preserves.The rooms are large, comfortable, and clean with private bathrooms.

A wonderful getaway for a family reunion.

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at Sabrina and Jame's glorious home in the Lazio / Umbrian hills. Three generations of family members enjoyed the sun, the pool, and the comforts of the house. The views are classic Italian. The location, near fantastic inexpensive restaurants, pizzerias, and agriturismo restaurants, but just over an hour from Rome and all of its amazing sites, makes Villa Surya the perfect place to experience Italy and Italian life without stress and worries. Sabrina and James were great, attentive hosts. On arrival there was a wonderful collection of marmalades, juices, and fresh vegetables from their organic garden. The fig trees and grape vines were weighed down with ripe fruit, there for the picking. The swimming pool was comfortable, always clean, and extremely relaxing. Evenings were spent outside on the patio, enjoying wonderful Italian wines and meals we cooked in the well-equipped kitchen, and playing games and chatting. On a couple of days there were showers in the afternoon, but the house was large enough for everyone to find a place inside to relax. Sabrina was an informative, knowledgeable host, but never interfering. I enjoyed conversations with her and found her a very interesting person. I would strongly recommend a stay at Villa Surya for anyone wanting to experience this part of Italy and to meet the very kind, considerate couple, Sabrina and James.

Wonderful relaxing family stay

  • 5 of 5

Our ages ranged from two to eighty two and we all had a wonderful time at Sabrina ans James' lovely villa.

We were made very welcome and the house and gardens were beautiful. The views were to die for and the swimming pool was just perfect.

Thank you both for a lovely holiday and we so enjoyed your company on the last evening.

With love and best wishes

We would definitely go again

  • 5 of 5

All lovely: lovely house and gardens/farm, lovely views, great pool, lovely weather and Sabrina and James were lovely too.

We are a family of 5 and stayed for 2 weeks at the beginning of August, punctuating lounging around reading and swimming with day trips to Rome and nearby sights.

As suggested by Sabrina, we drove to the outskirts of Rome and then used bus, tram and Metro to get into the city; a day's ticket that covers all 3 can be bought from tobacconists for 7 euros. We visited the Colosseum and the Vatican on 2 separate trips, buying tickets at the gate which worked out fine; just get there early.

We restricted ourselves to trips within an hour's drive, including Orvieto and the waterfalls at Mamore, (Cascata delle Marmore), near Terni; both worth a visit.

Most of the things you'll need are available at the MD supermarket that is 7 minutes down the road. There is a restaurant very close that has nice wood fired pizza in the evening, and at half the price in Rome etc.

The house is in the countryside but the journey from Fiumicino is very straightforward. It's nice and quiet although a Cockerel will likely let you know that the sun is up ;-)

The salt water pool is nice and big and lovely to swim in; it trades size for depth, which was perfect as far as we were concerned.

Sabrina and James get on with tending to their farm and are great hosts and very accommodating.

Basic villa with great pool in lovely grounds

  • 3 of 5

Overall we had a good holiday , loved the big pool which is kept clean, and Sabina and James live next door and are are nearly always available . We had some issues - faulty fan, blocked sink and broken pool floor tile which they very quickly resolved for us. They are very friendly and able to advise on sightseeing etc.

The setting is lovely - beautiful gardens, well kept with lots of spaces to sit .

The villa is rustic and not for those looking for a high degree of comfort - some chairs decidedly unstable and not for sitting on! We found the rooms in the villa smaller than we expected from the photos , in particular the living area . The kitchen is small and not really equipped with sufficient crockery and utensils for the advertised capacity of 8, guests, we just managed with 5 in our party. We ate simply or went out so managed ok.

Wi Fi is a bit unpredictable which didn't bother us too much but might if this is really important for you.

The 3 bedrooms upstairs are under the roof space as there is no loft so they get very hot despite our best efforts of using the (noisy) fans and closing the window shutters in the day to block the sun. We stayed in late June/ early July , I imagine this wouldn't be a problem later or earlier in the season.

The other factor which prevented us getting good rest was the nightly barking of dogs - the owners have 3 and there are others in the vicinity. Their dogs are friendly and we are dog lovers and have one of our own but did find the nighttime noise and frequent visits of them into our villa and garden in the day an irritation.

Places we would recommend to visit - Tivoli, Spoleto, Rome (best by train). There are a couple of good local local restaurants nearby which we visited but if you want a town to wander around with more choice , you need to travel further afield.

Overall we had a great family holiday with the highlight having our own pool.

Owner's Response: we are so sorry to hear that you had a few things that didn't make your holiday a magical one, unfortunately it is rustic and one of kind place,even if designed by an architect…. It is not for the kind of person or family that are expecting a highly comfort holiday that you would expect to have in the cities but if you were expecting a place to escape from the normal busy hectic life this is the place for you to relax, de stress and recharge your batteries. We thank you for your review and we will take all your comments on board. Kind Regards.

WOW fell in love.........

  • 5 of 5

We were welcome like we were family Sabrina, James and the gorgeous puppies. We had a very stressful time getting to Rome but as soon as we saw the villa, the pool and the amazing views all the stress flew away. We had the most incredible time celebrating my husband's 40th and James and Sabrina came to celebrate with a bottle of bubbles. My 3 year old learn how to swim in the pool and ran around the beautiful acres with the dogs and fed the chickens.....and the sunsets are something else.....we completely fell in love with the place and with Sabrina and James.............we will definitely be back 100%........very highly recommended.....x

Paradise "Surya"

  • 5 of 5

In the villa Surya there is an atmosphere of Love! There are roses, lavenders, margaritas blossoming and smelling. The fruiters are full of fruits and hens are laying eggs. The photos, presented on the web site, do not represent all the beauty, fabulous hills views, comfort and coziness it property and it surrounding. In one km from Surya – farm Mozzarella Buffalo! Fresh meat and sausages cabin only in 500 m from the villa. To A1 almost 3km and it makes quite comfortable to visit its charming cities: Orvieto, Siena, Viterbo, Arezzo, Tivoli…

Sabrina and James are very thoughful, but not intrusive. They make amassing white wine, excellent olive oil and swimming pool always is clean. We spend in Paradise “Surya” 24 days. Dear S & J, Thank you very much!
