About the location

Orvinio is 60 kms from Rome and 30 kms from Rieti, the provincial capital that sits right in the centre of Italy. The village is 800 m above sea level, in the beautiful Sabina hills. Local amenities include a pharmacy, butcher, small supermarket and a "slow food" recommended restaurant. There are delightful country walks all around -- a stunning variety of wild flowers in spring time, abundant harvests of sloes, blackberries and mushrooms in the autumn. An eagles' nest can be viewed not far away. Great star-gazing (telescope available). Fireflies in the summer time. Off the beaten tourist track ... real Italy. Direct trains into Rome 40 minutes away.

Day tripping distance to Tivoli, Spoleto, Leonessa, Rieti, Rome, Cascate delle Marmore, L'Aquila. Maps and info in the house.
