A magnificent Italian villa rental built in the 1930's in the desirable and conveniently central Italian region of Sabina, a territory still untouched by mass tourism, yet only 50 kilometers north of Rome.

The interior is entirely renovated and stands up as a prime example of classical Italian colonial style, complete with grand chimney and fireplace, and Tuscan terracotta floor tiling.

The villa sits within the privacy of a neatly manicured garden with its own pergola dining terrace and private swimming pool, perched on a hill over looking the vineyards and olive groves. All guests also have access to their own tennis court, table tennis and a five-a-side football field.

The estate that Villa Faruffini is located within produces a notable red wine and the local Sabina olive groves are credited with a reputable extra virgin olive oil. This property is the perfect base from which to explore the many nearby cultural and artistic attractions of central Italy, with Rome, Tuscany and Umbria all within a short day trip.

Villa Faruffini lies in the Italian central region of Lazio, in a perfect position for sightseeing Rome and day trip to Umbria and Tuscany.

The Estate is located 7 km from the quaint town of Magliano Sabina, in the enchanting Sabina area, a region still authentic and unspoilt. In a landscape of gentle hills where agriculture is in perfect harmony with the surrounding nature, you'll find an array of Roman villas, medieval castles, churches and abbeys and many remains of Italy's historic, cultural, architectonic and artistic past.

Riding schools, golf courses, natural bolted cliffs for free climbing, along with Mount Terminillo, ski resorts offer sports lovers an uncontaminated natural environment in which to play.

The area is alive in winter and summer for the holiday of your choice. Along pleasant country roads, you can easily reach breathtaking places still unknown by tourists. The motorway A1, instead, gives you an easy and quick access to some of the most important artistic sights of central Italy, such as Viterbo, Orvieto, Spoleto, Perugia but 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.

Owner Profile

Owner name

How long have you owned the property?
Over thirty years

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
The property has belonged to my family for generations and a good part of that past still lives today within the walls of these ancient structures, which were all recently renovated to bring modern day comfort to past traditional ambience.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
Our 3 villas, were commissioned in the thirties by my grand-father, Count Valentino Orsolini Cencelli (notable italian politician), designed on the model of colonial architecture present in the Pontine area during the famous draining of the Pontine Marshes. Count Valentino directed that draining and founded the cities of Latina and Sabaudia.

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Really do?
Relax by the pool with wonderful views on our vineyard or drink a glass of our wine at sunset.
Really eat?
Pasta all'Amatriciana, typical plate of the Sabina Region and obviously the worldwide famous extra-virgin olive oil of Sabina
Really see?
All the most important sites of central Italy: Rome, Orvieto, Viterbo, Perugia, Assisi, Firenze, Siena...

Lastly, what insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
Breathtaking views, peaceful surroundings, great food, sport facilities, Rome at a stone thrown away.... what else for a relaxing, sporty or cultural holiday? Choose the holiday you prefer or make sure your vacation will be all the three things. At Villa Faruffini... you can!



  • Beautiful

    on 17/09/2023

    Beautiful property. Gorgeous location. Pool is divine.

  • Away from it all

    on 10/10/2019

    An hour from Rome with this lovely remote location you really feel away from it all. The highlight is the outdoor space, pool and the views. Property spacious and clean, traditional style. Lovely Pizzeria a ten minute walk away and some local shops. Laurentia and her team are accommodating and a great host!

  • Great for all ages

    on 24/07/2019

    We recently enjoyed a holiday at Villa Faruffini and it was great for all ages. We are a family of 4 generations from a 1 year old to a 90 year old. The downstairs bedroom was very accessible and convenient for my elderly father and there is a very roomy lounge which is great for all the family. The villa has 4 bedrooms and they all have en-suite bathrooms. The swimming pool and villa are set in the most lovely gardens with olive trees. On the other side of the very quiet road is a tennis court and up some little steps was a room with table tennis table. We didn't use either of these as the weather was too hot and we spent more time in the pool. By far the greatest thing about this villa though is the beautiful scenery which surrounds it. The views are fantastic from every window and it is a very peaceful location overlooking the vineyards. It didn't seem possible that it was only about an hour's drive from Rome.
