LIFE IN SABINA
Located between Umbria, Lazio and Abruzzo, about 40Km from Rome, the Sabina is a region rich in olive groves and woods of oaks and beeches. This vast territory starts from the boundaries of the Municipality of Rome and extends to reach the Sabine Mountains through hills and hills often dominated by medieval villages, castles and ancient monasteries. It has always been known for the excellence of the production of extra virgin olive oil for which it has obtained the DOP certification and for its landscape features that have remained substantially unchanged over time thanks to a moderate and careful development of construction and industry.
Cantalupo in Sabina with over 1700 inhabitants dominates, from the fortress on which it is located at an altitude of about 300 meters, much of the splendid view of the surrounding countryside of Sabina.
Today Cantalupo is a small town, equipped with every service (supermarket, gym, pharmacy, post office, bank, schools …). The strategic position of the Sabina, under the direct influence of three major urban and industrial centers such as Rome, Rieti and Terni, makes this territory ideal to experience the tranquility of the countryside without having to pay the inconvenience of isolation or distance from the places of greatest business or commercial interest.
