The agriturismo

The middle age archaeological town Roccantica is situated on the top of the hills in the region of Sabina on the foot of the mountain chain Apennine. Here in  the country sides full of olive plantations and vineyards on a land of 25 hectares was created the Holiday Farm.

The accommodation

Elsebeth Faerch  - Montanarella born in Copenhagen (DK), widow of Adm. Marco Montanarella.  I feel European, studied business and economics and English and French respectively in London and Paris.  My fortune was to meet Marco in France.  We have both worked for NATO for 25 years posted in several NATO countries.  An enchanting experience to work in an international atmosphere, which has given me the opportunity to know and understand the different mentalities and cultures.

After retirement we decided to live in the nature with the animals as a consequence was created the “Agriturismo – Centro Ippico San Lorenzo”

It is my pleasure to receive the holiday guests and make them acquainted with the fascinating Sabina, the habits the history and the local cooking.

After reconstruction of the old stable and farm house it is now a comfortable mansion, which consist of six double rooms and a small flat (all with private bathroom), furnished with ancient furniture and some with modern;  two spacious living rooms with open fire, a library well equipped with books in several languages and a large country kitchen. 

Moreover a swimming pool surrounded with green lawns and flowers, is available only for the guests.  During the warm season breakfast and meals are served  under one of the spacious porches, where also an  outdoor barbecue and a wooden oven is available the latter for pizza and homemade bread. 
The farm produces natural products as  vine, oil, vegetables, fruit;  and prepares its own jam and the famous Italian liqueur “Lemoncello”. 

San Lorenzo has also a Horse Riding School, 2 jumping fields, 40 boxes and an agreeable Club House.  Horse riding lessons by a Federal Instructor or accompanied rides in the country sides can be arranged.

    "A CORNER OF PARADISE"

    08/20/2019

    to have known this farm and its owner Elisabeth was simply FABULOUS, a corner of paradise a stone's throw from home, in an atmosphere of serenity 'and peace, complemented by kindness and hospitality' exquisite.
    I would advise everyone to try it if you are looking for the most complete relaxation and a very kind multilingual hostess.
    We left after a week with tears in our eyes, that was a great experience.
    If you read this comment, Elisabeth, many dear greetings from Massimo, Stella and, in a special way from Doru!!!!!!

    "Beautiful - we'll be happy to come again"

    08/15/2019

    We lived in the apartment and took care of ourselves. Elisabeth is an extremely friendly and helpful assistant who has always helped us with any questions or requests. We felt like at home - at a stable celebration we were also invited as guests. The riding lessons were wonderful and a rider with knowledge of English was immediately taken care of for better communication. The apartment was clean, the beds comfortable and if you needed anything else (e.g. kitchen utensils), Elisabeth was immediately of help. She was also always competent and helpful when it came to questions about shopping or a trip to Rome. We enjoyed the holiday there very much. Thank you for your great hospitality.

    Pendant le séjour à San Lorenzo, nous avons toujours communiqué en anglais, bien que Johanna sache que l'italienne aimerait remercier les deux en anglais pour le bien d'Eva une charmante jeune fille intéressée par l'équitation, les animaux et le sport en général. Une belle expérience pour
    rencontrer mère et fille, toutes deux aimant l'Italie, la campagne et profitant de chaque moment de la journée pour s'adonner à des activités différentes. Il est si naturel de réconforter les hôtes de toutes les manières possibles pour s'assurer que leur séjour sera le plus agréable possible. Heureux que vous ayez choisi San Lorenzo et que vous espériez vous revoir.

    "We felt happy at Elisabeths B&B"

    06/10/2019

    Elisabeth is a very caretaking hostess. We loved her cooking and the environment with all horses, hens, dogs and cats. We slept in a comfortable bed and had a nice bathroom. We can with ease stay there again :-)

    Cela a été un réel plaisir de recevoir la visite de la Suède, des personnes avec des personnalités naturelles et agréables. Chaque jour, ils allaient visiter une autre attraction dans la belle Sabina et à leur retour, ils se détendaient en plein air avec un bon verre de vin blanc rafraîchissant en regardant l'ancien Borgo autour de San Lorenzo.
    Une visite gratifiante dont je les remercie.

It was a desire to to meet new and interesting people all the time which led me to run an agriturismo.
