La Tartaruga Sabina, the villa hosting our cooking school program, is the ideal place to make a dream come true amidst the charm of the Roman countryside and the elegance of an exclusive villa.

Because of its classic modern design and artistic elegance, the indoor areas will make every reception appeal to the most sophisticated lovers of art.

During springtime the glass doors are opened and the garden bursts with scents and colors, giving events an unforgettable, romantic atmosphere.

For those who expect nothing less than a truly extraordinary celebration, our villa can accommodate a large wedding ceremony in the garden, blessing the magical moment on the gorgeous gazebo by the pool.


Fifteen minutes away from the villa, the newlyweds may choose to celebrate their wedding in the ancient castle of the Savelli-Torlonia princes located in the Medieval town of Palombara Sabina, a gorgeous XI century castle with indoor rooms and a nice garden with a spectacular view, available for wedding civil ceremonies.

We offer special wedding packages including: wedding ceremony at the Castle + wedding reception at the Villa + one or more days of vacation at the Villa + wedding planning service.

"Amazing is the only word to describe our time at the villa and the villa owner Giuseppe. We stayed in the villa for a week in May and through out this time we were married in Rome and had our reception at the villa. Giuseppe organised everything and nothing was too much trouble. From the minute we arrived at the villa everyone felt instantly relaxed and enjoyed the luxury of the surroundings both adults and children alike had plenty to do to occupy their time. The train station is only 3mins drive away and the train runs regularly to Rome. 

Our wedding day was perfect and everyone loved the day and continually speak about how wonderful the reception was at the villa. The location, food, band, waiter service, villa chefs and especially the wedding cake were some of the many highlights not forgetting the beautiful sunset made our wedding so special. We could not recommend the villa enough and for any one who is looking to have the most romantic and beautiful wedding this is your place and Giuseppe is your man to ensure every detail is perfect."
