Sgurgola is a charming medieval village at the foot of the Lepini Mountains overlooking the Sacco Valley. It is 368 metres above sea level. Villa Bianca Maria is situated at #1 Via del Posatore and greets you as you enter the village. Villa Bianca Maria is named after my maternal and paternal grandmothers.

My father was born in Sgurgola. My mother was born in a village close by called Carpineto Romano. They both immigrated to Canada and then met and married here in 1964. Our family often travelled to Lazio, Italy for special holidays and vacations. As childen, we have very pleasant memories of awesome meals and good times at Villa Bianca Maria. As such my sisters and I never lost sight of our roots, and very much enjoy the culture , history , gastronomy, and beauty of the village, the region and of Italy in general. We would like to spend more time in Italy and in Europe in retirement.

When an opportunity arose to buy the Villa, we took it! We have been slowly renovating the Villa and we go there about once a year. The property has about 70 olive trees on it and all sorts of other fruit trees, plants and flowers. Depending on the time of year you are there you can have plums, pears, apples, cherries, figs and even kiwi. It is a little oasis and spending some time there is always heavenly.

From the Villa Bianca Maria you can easily go to Rome, Florence, Naples, the Isle of Capri, the Amalfi Coast etc. Beaches are close by or if cycling or hiking is your pleasure, there is plenty of opportunity to do so from this area.   More details about the Villa itself and other local attractions are contained within this website. Rates are also provided.

We invite you to spend some time at Villa Bianca Maria! You will be delighted and enchanted!
