I casali di "Santa Barbara" a Capranica sorgono su uno sperone tufaceo circondato da boschi di castagni e querce e dominano sulla valle contigua al parco archeologico dell'"Antichissima Città di Sutri". Il paesaggio naturale di quest'antica regione della Tuscia si è preservato intatto, e questo rende Santa Barbara una località di particolare suggestione. Il podere si estende per circa 20 ettari. Sono due casali spaziosi ricavati dalle strutture dell'azienda agricola. Indipendenti, silenziosi, panoramici, il Casale e la Stalla sono circondati da giardini (con verande fiorite e un forno a legna) e confinano con i noccioleti e la valle boschiva, un paesaggio tipico del Lazio etrusco; dalla piscina se ne apprezza l'ampio orizzonte. Santa Barbara dista solo 50 km da Roma (50min di macchina, 1h15 di treno) e 20 km da Viterbo.
The cottages of "Santa Barbara" (farmhouse) in Capranica sit on a green hill, surrounded by hazelnut and oaks trees. From the top of the valley, the cottages enjoy a wild, natural and uncontaminated countryside which is connected to the archeological park of the "Antichissima Città di Sutri", in Lazio region, only 50km to Rome. The property (20ha) includes two quite, comfortable cottages (“Casale” and "Stalla”) surrounded by a wide and neat garden with panoramic pool, verandas and a characteristic wood oven. The position is so particular also because not far from Rome (55km / 1h by car, 1h15 by train).
Santa Barbara was like a dream for us and everything we had wanted in our accomodation. It was rural and secluded but only 900m from a main train line to Rome. The setting was beautiful with fantastic outdoor seating and views of rolling hills. The pool was refreshing and great for the kids. The accomodation was spacious and comfortable for our extended family and friends who were staying. We found nuts, wild berries and figs accessible on the property which we BBQ'd. There were great local towns like Viterbo and Bracciano, which had a castle that had no other tourists in it!Overall we had a magnificent time and would highly recommend this accomodation, especially for families and large groups.

A fantastic place in the countryside to relax. The house was well kept and the pool area was clean and well equipped with sun chairs. Great hosts who made us feel very welcome during our stay. Isabelle, Sweden July 2017, Casale antico
Our expectations overcame. Nice villa surrounded by well taken garden. Very quiet place to have a vacation. We had wonderful moments by the pool and made interesting visits to the closest cities. It was a good choice to take the train to Rome Timo, Finland, June 2017, Stalla grande
The house and its garden are amazing and so peaceful! The train station to go to Rome is at 15 minutes walking time. The location of the house is central if you want to visit the lacs around Rome. We will come back for sure! Barbara, Nice, Mai 2017, Stalla grande This was an ideal property for our large family, 4 generations 5 yrs - 80 yrs. There is plenty of space inside and outside. We really enjoyed the pool area, large garden and games room. The rooms are clean and the garden well kept. The owners were very helpful and friendly. We would recommend this property to anyone and hope to return one day! Maria, september 2016, whole property
I'm coming back to Tenuta Santa Barbara for the 4th year! This is a beautiful and tranquil home base for my group tours of the Rome area. The facilities are ideal and the location is perfect for taking the train into Rome or visiting the Etruscan and Ancient Roman heritage of nearby Sutri. Tenuta Santa Barbara is also the ideal starting point for a picturesque tour around the beautiful region between Lake Bracciano and Lake Bolsena. The bedrooms are clean and comfortable and the kitchens are so convenient - we enjoy staying in as much as going out! And I can't say enough about how welcoming and accommodating our hosts have been - we truly feel at home here and I highly recommend Tenuta Santa Barbara to anyone visiting Italy.

Con il mio gruppo di amici, composto da 5 famiglie (10 adulti e 9 bambini) abbiamo appena trascorso uno splendido we presso questa struttura. In considerazione del numero di partecipanti abbiamo usufruito sia del large cottage che del nice cottage, strutture adiacenti che ci hanno permesso di avere ognuno propri ampi spazi e muoverci in libertà. Le nostre attese sono state pienamente soddisfatte, la location incantevole, la totale privacy, spazi conviviali ben organizzati e l'impegno della proprietaria di farti sentire come a casa propria hanno reso l'esperienza decisamente positiva. Torneremo. Alessandra, Roma, settembre 2016
My family and I stayed at Santa Barbara for a few days end of May and we loved it! Its very secluded so no sounds of cars, only green hills and pastures surrounding it, which was exactly what we were looking for. However, for grocery shopping and a bit of sightseeing there are some really nice villages not far and Rome is only about one-hour drive away. The place is really clean and well-kept and the interior is tastefully decorated. We'll definitely come back! Anne, Sweden, May 2015
