Wonderful vacation in a beautiful villa in a stunning location.
I have rented homes many times around the world over the past 20 years and Villa Tartaruga is one of the best, offering an unparalleled experience of house quality, location and outstanding cuisine. I would not hesitate to return to this beautiful villa.
A piece of Italian heaven
Giuseppe have managed to create a piece of Italian heaven in the small town of Palombara Sabina just outside of Rome. We rented the villa to have our wedding. We were a total of 16 people that arrived almost a week prior to the wedding. And immediately we were mesmerized by the beautiful surroundings and the beautiful and well kept villa. The pool area are well kept with comfortable furnitures. The villa it self was impressive with large bedrooms all with their own bathroom. Spacious living room and a kitchen/ dining room to die for. The villa has several porches, that was a great feature, since we was traveling with teenagers and they could stay on the backside porch witch had table tennis and some workout equipment. During our stay we had a surprise celebration for my sisters 40th birthday. Carla the amazing chef prepared a wonderful dinner with the best lasagna and chocolate cake we ever had! Giuseppe were really forthcoming in helping us making reservations and made suggestions for places to see in Rome. He even popped by with fresh figs and vegetables from the garden! When we booked villa Tartaruga to have our wedding at, Nanci - Giuseppe’s sister in law was my coordinator. She did an amazing job and no question was to small or stupid. She even coordinated with the B&B next door where our other guests were staying. Nanci did a tremendous job on the wedding day, allowing me relax and enjoy the day and night. On the night before the wedding we had a pizza and prosecco party with all of our guests. That was a big hit with the pizza being made outside in a big pizza oven. And the pizza was amazing!
Giuseppe has not only created a piece of heaven, he has also put together an amazing crew who do they very best so that we could have the best vacation ever.
I would recommend everyone who is looking to have a wedding/ celebration/ culinary vecation or simply looking for a place to relax just a short train ride outside of Rome to consider Villa Tartaruga.
We hope to return sometime soon!
A beautiful place to stay and vacation.
We spent a week with our family and enjoyed our time immensely. The villa is beautiful and the countryside views were incredible.
-Management and staff were very responsive to our needs
-Location is just north of Rome and has a country feel with farms all around. The train station is only a 5 minute drive.
-We opted for chef prepared breakfast along with most dinners and would do it again. The food was delicious and varied. Kitchen was kept spotless by the chef.
-House is beautiful and the pool is great.
We only had house keeping one day for the week we were there. They didn't make a couple of our beds and simply laid the replacement towels in a stack in the living room. They didn't refresh the bathrooms during the cleaning day. An area they can improve upon.
Overall, a wonderful experience.
Wundervolles Anwesen mit schöner Poolanlage
Wir haben uns sehr auf diesen Urlaub gefreut und das Haus und die Anlage verspricht alles was im Vorfeld gezeigt wurde. Schönes Haus mit großer Küche und nett eingerichteten Zimmer. Von hier aus ist Rom sehr gut erreichbar durch gute Zug Anbindung aber auch durch die nah gelegene Autobahn, wobei die Straßen gewöhnungsbedürftig sind. Das Haus hat einen guten Service gesteuert durch die Hausverwaltung den Hauskepper und Vorort ist immer Herr Giuseppe Micheletta als Ansprechpartner und aber auch hilfsbereiter Partner für alle Fragen und Informationen. Wir sind hier sehr gut aufgenommen worden und würden dieses Anwesen jederzeit wieder buchen. Rom ist eine wunderschöne Stadt.
A Once-in-a-Lifetime Experience
I left a part of my heart at La Cucina Sabina.... it's true. There's something so magical about this place that it's difficult to put it into words. From the moment you arrive, you are welcomed with open arms by the owner and staff at this charming villa that sits on 60 acres of rolling hills and luscious olive trees. What's amazing is it's just a short 40 minute drive from bustling Rome, but when you're here, you feel like you're hundreds of miles away. My room was so welcoming with special touches such as olive oil based amenities, high-end bathroom fixtures and a very comfortable bed outfitted with luxury linens. The fireplace in the main living room and the outdoor seating areas were so relaxing - the perfect place to read a good book.
Our days were filled with some of the most amazing food that I've ever eaten. And when I say FILLED, I mean it! The "Nonna" named Carla that works tirelessly in the kitchen to cook your daily meals was nothing short of amazing. Her English is weak, but her skills are strong! From veal saltimbocca to the best pesto I've ever had to simply fresh salads and grilled vegetables to appetizers shaped like penguins made from olives and mozzarella! Carla is the Italian grandmother we all wish we had growing up, and the secret ingredient of every meal is love. She's always eager to teach you how she does it. She taught me how to make homemade pasta, which was such an amazing experience! And the pizza-making class was so much fun.
In addition to the enchantment of the food at the villa, we took off-the-beaten-path trips to nearby towns with our own personal guides. We walked the tiny cobblestone streets of Orvieto, situated high atop a volcanic mountain. We toured the expansive gardens of Tivoli and dined "al fresco" at the historic Sabilla Ristorante with views that were simply breathtaking. We climbed to the top of the tower and dined inside the castle at Polambara Sabina! Every day was a curated experience that you really can't find anywhere else.
We learned about the incredible olive oil harvested right here at La Cucina Sabina through a guided tasting. Olive oil is to Sabina what wine is to Tuscany. It really is something special. And now I know how to spot a quality olive oil when I'm shopping at home!
I will always think fondly of my time spent at this special place. I feel like I got to experience "the real Italy." No tourist traps, no long lines or crowds. Everything was personalized. Everything was authentic.
A Magical Week in Paradise
From the moment you arrive you cannot help being swept away by the 60, beautiful lush acres that La Cucina Sabina sits upon. It's a hideaway in the hillsides; close enough to Rome and surrounding towns to visit for the day, but far enough away to to escape everyday life. We were warmly greeted by Giuseppe, one of the hosts and by Carla, the "Nonna" of the house who whipped up a "small" lunch for us. Nothing is small in Sabina; from the expansive views, treasure trove of ancient architecture, and especially the meals. Each day brought a new adventure with it; exploring Orvieto, the Villa d'Este and gardens of Tivoli that included lunch "al fresco" with the most breathtaking view you have ever seen, a private castle tour in Palombara Sabina, wine tasting, an olive oil tour & tasting (not all olive oil is created equally!), cooking lessons at the villa, a day trip to Rome and so much more.
One of my favorite parts was how not touristy the areas we visited were. Having local hosts guide us through the Sabina region and Rome really gave us a unique opportunity to experience the real Italy. It gave me an appreciation of the country that I might not have experienced on a huge group tour. Plus, the food! Focaccia as light as air, sweet Sabina olive oil, fresh herbs picked straight from La Cucina Sabina's garden, homemade pesto bursting with flavor and so much more. I'm not sure if I miss the food more or seeing Carla's bright, shining face every morning cooking up another delightful meal, encouraging us to join in the fun. The kitchen truly is the heart of the home at La Cucina Sabina.
I cannot say enough about this enchanting family resort in Sabina. You have to experience it yourself, and trust me, you will not regret it.
