The estate of Villino Mattei is an oasis of calm and relaxation immersed in the roman countryside, a short walk from the medieval village of Tarano. With a slight intervention of restoration the existing architectural artifacts have been converted into houses nestled in the park pivoting around the historic Cottage. The ground floor of the villa is the lobby of the resort offering warm hospitality linked to the wellness area immersed in the lush green countryside. The upper floors welcome guests in small apartments overlooking the terraces at different levels. The buildings are integrated with the landscape and clump together watching the valley and the olive groves. The agricultural production of Sabina characterizes the peculiarity of the wellness center in the use of oil as a key ingredient for body care. The Spa is articulated in two main areas: the terrace with Kneipp bath, herbal tea bar, solarium and thermal pool and the wellness center with hammam, sensory shower, turkish bath, oil bath, treatments, massages and fitness area.
