Elegant 2BR apartment in Casperia, an ancient hilltop village in the Sabina, near Rome
Location: Casperia, Reiti Province, Lazio, north of Rome
Sleeps: 4 (6 with sleeper sofa)
Resting on a hilltop on the edge of the Sabina Mountains, in the Province of Reiti, in Lazio, the medieval village of Casperia strikes many perfect balances. Less than an hour north of the wonders and bustle of Rome, Casperia combines easy access to the Eternal City with its own quiet serenity. One of the few towns in Europe prohibiting automobiles from its centro storico, or historical center, Casperia manages to retain the authentic beauty of its ancient heritage in an enchanting setting so close to Rome that many of its residents commute to work there daily. Not only is Casperia well situated for easy day-trips into Rome and northern Lazio (including the unspoiled charm and beauty of the Sabina), much of Umbria and southern Tuscany are only a short drive away. Tivoli, Viterbo, Trevi, Orvieto, Spoleto, Todi, Assisi, Perugia, Deruta and Montepulciano, to name but a few—all are within an hour and a half drive or less. If you want to stay closer to home, the surrounding countryside is beautiful and perfect for exploring by car, bike or on foot.
Il Sogno, an elegant and meticulously restored 12th - 15th Century apartment in the heart of Casperia's centro storico, offers guests the opportunity to share in the delights of Casperia and its strategic location in a relaxed setting as ancient and enchanting as Casperia itself. It has a well-appointed kitchen, separate dining and living areas, a rooftop terrazza (planned), a modern full bath and a half bath, and two double bedrooms, one carved out of the living rock on which Casperia is built, the other boasting a fireplace and a wonderful view over the Sabina mountains. Furnished with many period antiques and replete with many of its original wooden beams, wood ceilings and stone and stucco walls, il Sogno is the embodiment of the perfect Italian hide-away: luxury and practicality, ambiance and comfort, history and convenience — all at an affordable price. With the sleeper sofa, il Sogno can accommodate up to 6 persons.
