Borgo Gaia Sabina


There are many things to do, once you are in the Sabina. Besides the wonderful mountain biking, hiking, cycling and walking trails this region has to offer, there are at least nine golf courses in the greater Roman area. Horseback riding is available right around the corner and so are tennis courts.

Even though the olive presses are operative only from October to January, guided tours are available year round.

Yoga, massages, cooking classes, markets are among the great variety of activities available and ensure that each person shall find something to do to make this vacation unforgettable.

For a day at the beach, we recommend Fregene and Tarquinia, the latter having amazing Etruscan tombs to visit. Both an hour away by car.

For downhill and cross country skiing we recommend Monte Terminillo close to Rieti, the capital of the province Lazio (1 hour) and Campo Felice in Abruzzo (1.5 hour).

For serious shopping, apart of course from the shops of Rome, we suggest: the Porta di Roma (35 minutes), directly on motorway A1.

For culture and pleasure we recommend the eternal city of Rome, Orvieto’s Duomo; the gardens of Tivoli; Bomarzo, the monthly antique market in Arezzo; the excavations of Ostia Antica; Sienna and the thermal springs of Viterbo . Don’t forget Palazzo Farnese in Caprarola, a must. Tripadvisor also offers a list of things to do in the region.

For dining: there are over 25 restaurants in the vicinity of the borgo for delicious local meals for modest prices. Making reservations for pranzo (lunch) on Saturday or Sunday is recommended. Addresses and phone numbers are in the guestbook.
