House details

Casa Dolce Aria is a family holiday home, which is fully equipped to ensure that all guests have a relaxing stay. The kitchen and shower rooms have been furnished to modern standards, but the house also contains a number of antique pieces of furniture. The mixture of the antique and the new is intended to ensure comfort whilst retaining a sense of the history of the house and the area. There is plenty to see and do in the neighbourhood, but the house is also well-equipped for those who want to relax and enjoy themselves without going far.

Outside there are two focal points. One is the pool set in the lower terrace, with views across the valley towards the jagged outline of Monte Soratte. The other is the terrace by the house, where the barbecue and outdoor furniture provide a spur to al fresco dining. Either are ideal places to relax during a summer day. There is also a wood-fired pizza oven, for those guests who know how to cook pizzas in the traditional way.

Inside the house there is a selection of games, books and DVDs to provide home entertainment.

The casa is owned by Andrew Kidger, a Brit who has worked in Rome, and discovered for himself the magic of Sabina. Andrew and his family regularly stay in the house, and his hope is that all who visit it will feel welcome and at home there.
