We had the extreme good fortune of spending a week in Sally's lovely property in the Sabina, a short distance from Rome. We wanted to visit Rome, but did not want to stay in the hustle and bustle of the city. This lovely apartment was the perfect solution. It is truly a home away from home. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and the views from the balcony are breathtaking. It is an easy journey to the train station and 40 minutes later we were in Rome! In the apartment, Sally thought of everything! No detail has been overlooked. It is bright, warm and cozy.

Casa Fagiolina proved to be everything we were looking for - a lovely, well cared for apartment with that attention to detail that makes you feel you are at home rather than a rented holiday flat. Very comfortable, fantastic equipment, stunning balcony with views. Only a short drive to the train station meant an easy journey into Rome to save us trying to park in the city. Also enjoyed some lovely local sites and an amazing day at Tivoli at Hadrian's Villa. Local shops and restaurants and a beautiful relaxing setting in the owner's gardens, with plenty of herbs around to make the most of the local produce and Italian style kitchen. Thanks Sally for a fantastic holiday that ticked every box for us. A rare find and exceptionally good value. We would certainly recommend and return.

We loved EVERYTHING about our stay here! So relaxing to walk out onto the terrace each morning and take in the view and listen to the birds...I recommend all of the trips that we took - to Tivoli water gardens at night (stunning), to Orvieto, Civita/Bagnoregio, the nearby villages fo Fara and Farfa and, of course, Roma! I don't know how we'll be able to beat this with any other holiday rental. Casa Fagiolina is truly a home from home. Thank you.

We chose to stay at Casa Fagiolina because it promised well equipped accommodation in a quiet rural location. It delivered everything that was promised and more. It is, without doubt, the best equipped holiday accommodation that we have ever stayed in - and we have stayed in many.

Sally provided a lot of information about things to do and places to go. It was very easy to travel into Rome by train - and surprisingly cheap. It is a pity that we did not have the chance to meet Sally, but the neighbours and villagers were very welcoming and friendly. One of life's great pleasures must surely be to sit on the balcony with a glass of local wine, watching a fantastic sunset with the heady scent of jasmine in the background. Magical!

Hi Sally,

Just a wee note to thank you so very much for the fantastic week we had at Casa Fagiolina.
Everything was just brilliant. The village, the area, the weather, your lovely neighbour who blew us kisses each day, but most of all the apartment itself!! You have literally thought of everything.
We have had a well needed week of complete relaxation thanks to you and Casa Fagiolina. We cannot thanks you enough and will definately be recommending the apartment to all our friends.

Fondest regards,
Cathy and Stephen,

Casa Fagiolina: the sort of home you see on TV and say "It would be great to stay there." Every morning and every evening, the views are amazing. Sally, your directions are spot-on; your suggested trips are great. A visit to Orvieto is a must. Be sure to be in Cathedral Sayare late afternoon to see the sun's reflections on the facade. The little bakery in nearby Fara Sabina is heaven. The €8 train fare to Rome is great value. Sally, you get ten out of ten.

" We have had another wonderful holiday at Casa Fagiolina and have felt even more at home on this second visit. This is a place to relax and enjoy real Italian living and a slower pace of life. The balcony is fantastic, overlooking the village and with distant mountain views. It's a lovely place to drink your morning coffee, eat lunch and in our case, paint pictures! Sally is a fantastic host and nothing is too much trouble for her. Her knowledge of Italy is amazing and she speaks fluent Italian, so can help with any little problems that are beyond our very basic Italian. (We damaged a wheel trim on our hire car and Sally came to the garage with us to order a replacement!) We like this place so much that we've booked again for next year and then we are driving up to Lake Como to stay in Sally's other holiday home in Bellagio - can't wait!"

Well worth a visit. three great days in rome, seeing the sites and eating loads of ice cream. Sally's instructions make everything so easy. Thanks Sally for a lovely holiday and a fantastic place to stay that was home from home and a great place to relax and unwind.

We have had a wonderful holiday at Casa Fagiolina, Sally. Your helpful information and lovely apartment have ensured that our stay has been both busy and relaxing. We have visited many places during the day, including Fara in Sabina, Farfa, tivoli, Hadrian's Villa and of course, Rome. But we have had the comfort and convenience to rejuvenate , ready for the next day. Thank you especially for the step by step advise ofr a first visit to Rome - we got so much out of one day!

Great place to stay and beauutiful area. Our children enjoyed exploring the little villages and going for walks in the countryside. San Martino wak excellent for view, flowers and butterfiles. Also good walks just north of Salisano in the hills. Villa d'Este also great for children. Gelato was, however, the best part of the holiday!!!

Thanks, Sally, for our warm and friendly hospitality.

Your property lived up to all our expectations and more. Every was exactly as qdvertised and more. It is such a pretty and peaceful area and a perfect retreat after visiting rome. We felt very much at home here with all the comforts that we could hope for. Wish I could take the apartment home with me!

Enjoyed trips around the local area - Orvieto and neighbouring medieval villages and Rome. How delightful it was to sit on the terrace in the evening while eating dinner and lay on the hammocks on a lazy afternoon.

Relaxing, lovely place to stay. We spent many days exploring the hill-top towns Rome was hectic - so a lovely contrast. We loced watching the sunset from the balcony every night.

What an amazing place to stay! An appartment where you want for nothing. Sally has thought of everything. The views are spectacular and we have spent many an hour on the balcony admiring them.

the location is perect for venturing out to rome (using the train) and the surrounding villages. Upon returning from some very busy days out we knew the comforts would be waiting for us to relax. We all called this our 'home' whilst we have been here as it really is 'home from home'.

Sally - it has been a pleaseure staying in your beautiful apparmtnet. thank you for making feel so welcome. Your warm and friendly personality shines through and made us feel so comfortable here.

We have had a real taste of Italian life by staying in this wonderful apartment. It is, without doubt, a true home from home.

Margaret & Dave, Leicester

We/ve had the most fantastic and relaxing week. The apartment is everything and more that we could have wished for. We've enjoyed lazy afternoons on the terrace with a glass or two of the local wine! Fantastic views which we will remember fondly.

Locals all very friendly and made us feel at home. Thank you, Sally for everything.
Stephen, Glasgow, Scotland

Lovely place, fanatstic view and superbly kitted out! the boys had a great time and Sally has been enormously accommodating. Some good trips out too - try the volcanic waters near Viterbo - free and outdoors - and the lovely river walk along the Farfa at Granica.
Thanks Sally. We hope to visit again.

Stephen Naomi, Lenny and Theo

What a fantastic location! Perfect for walks and train to Rome - very easy. The views are amazing.

And the birds - saw Hoopoe ,Bee-eaters and Golden Oriel - all for the the very first time. As a new 'birder' that has put the icing on the cake!

Alison & Jeremy, Tony & Nina, Bristol

Spent some days around Canneto and in the garden, which we love. appreciated the hammocks and the terrace. Apartment very comfy and with everything you could possibly want. Very well thought out. Enjoyed several meals cooked at home and eaten out on terrace by candlelight. Perfect!

Linda & Nick , UK

We had a wonderful week at Casa Fagiolina. Sally's warm welcome when we arrived late at night made us feel right at home. Her thoughtful attention to us and to the detail of everything in the apartment were first class.
We found Canneto to be a perfect base for visiting Rome and this beautiful part of Italy, and Casa Fagiolina was such a comfortable home to which to return every day. Our sons loved cooking in the apartment using local ingredients and playing in the garden. It was a pleasure to go to the local church. Follow the instructions in Sally's book and you won't go wrong. Thank you for this place - we will recommend it and are sure to be back.

Ann, Simon, Samuel, Jonah & Jack

Day trips into Rome were the highlight of our holiday. Very good instructions, thanks Sally, very clear guidance.
Apartment is excellent and suited our needs well. The view of the sunset from the terrace was a delight.
A very relaxing and enjoyable break and i hope to return.
Sally , you might advertise the apartment to cyclists. The countryside is perfect for Spring training. Perhaps I will be back with my cycle soon.

Tony, UK

We enjoyed a beautiful week of October sunshine. Sally is very friendly and has thought of everything in her well-equipped appartment.
Spectacular scery all around the area. Very easy access to Rome at a very reasonable day ticket.
We had the pleasure of attending mass in the local church some mornings and evenings.
Our trips to Rieti and Orvieto will be long remembered , as will our visit to the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel.

Patrick, Ben, Kiaran, and Feargal, Belfast

Great ambience created by Sally and the tranquil surroundings. Very well equipped property in an unspoilt village with friendly locals. One had us holding hands in the main street to demonstrate the girth of the famous ancient olive tree!

This provided us with an ideal base for exploring Rome and beyond. Convenient travel by train with BIRG tickeet. Canneto was also convenient for visiting Hadrian's villa, Ostia Antica, Tivoli, Orvieto, Tarquinia and the many local hill towns.
We hope that this will set us up for the forthoming Scottish winter!
Colin & Irene, Glasgow
Alistair & Susie, Ross-shire.

We very much enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment. Sally has thought of everything you could want.
Travelling to Rome was easy and cheap by train but we particularly liked exploring the area and the picturesque hill towns.

John & Julie, Bawtry

We had a lovely week visiting Rome and Bracciano and local towns. The house is very well equipped and it is great to have som e basic provisions to start with.
