Aged and full of character yet lovingly restored, Casa Olive Branch in the Sky is a haven of tranquillity within one of Italy’s most scenic and historic regions. The house itself is spacious and well-equipped, with original features throughout. The view from the plunge pool truly has to be seen to be believed. And the surrounding hills and countryside are dotted with medieval villages and full of opportunities to experience local cuisine and vibrant cultural events.

The house feels completely secluded but a 500 metre stroll will take you to the town of Poggio Catino, and it is a mere 40 minutes on the train from the culture and excitement of Rome. The historic Sabine Hills are dotted with medieval towns and villages and the regions of Lazio and Umbria are always buzzing with festivals and food markets.
