From farm to agriturism

The agriturism Casale Trigoria, which is just one part of the agricultural compound of the De Amicis family, was established in 2005 in a wildlife reserve, where nature still is the protagonist of the landscape.
The lands of the agriturism extend for 35 hectares (86 acres) and are currently cultivated with a variety of cereals, olive trees and seasonal vegetables, which feed the community with tomatoes, zucchini, potatoes, lettuce, and the likes.
By choice of the owners all the products cultivated are rigorously OGM-FREE and pesticides are strictly forbidden.
All the land around the agriturism, which includes not only fields, but a small forest, untilled hills, and a scrubland are all dissected by trails, which the guests can explore at their leisure either by cycling, walking, or running.

Part of the land is also dedicated to the grazing of both domesticated and wild animals. Sheep, cows, and donkeys can be seen in the distance from the compound, and later in the day boars, fox, and other wild animals can be spotted. Rather than combating these sometimes unwanted members of the local fauna, we try to protect their existence in an attempt to safeguard the local biodiversity.

On the compound itself we have a variety of animals, like geese, rabbits, chickens, peacocks, pheasants and other local types of birds.

To protect the tranquility of the agriturism we have two friendly dogs, Macchia (Spot) and Balù, who you may hearing barking, but are, no pun-intended, all bark no bite.

The land of Casale Trigoria has a history, which does not begin in 2005, when the agriturism was founded, but reaches much further in the depths of time. Around the modern compound, in the surroundings hills and caves, ever so often one finds a piece of an ancient vase, a coin, and sometimes even large engraved pieces of marble. These findings are due to an ancient Roman villa, discovered by a team of archeologists in 1988, which was located on the hill in front of the agriturism. As the archeologists dug they found a labyrinth of caves, which mostly likely would have functioned as cellars.

From their findings they deduced that as early as the 1st century B.C. the land of Casale Trigoria was where wealthy Romans (patricians) would retire to their country estates. The land’s history, however, is not only marked by ancient Romans , but also by German soldiers, who during World War II in the southern part of the estate built a series of underground fortifications to block the Allies progression from Anzio. These fortifications can still be seen and it is not uncommon to find old bullets around them.
We are a proud “bee-friendly” agriturism; meaning we do our best to preserve the well-being of these at-risk insects, who are on the brink of extinction in Europe.

Bees are not only great indicators of the well-being of our planet, but are also diligent workers, who spread pollen, strengthening the environment’s biodiversity. On our land they are allowed to graze freely and are vigorously protected.

With solar panels installed in May 2012 the whole of the agriturism is powered by the sun, making us completely self-sustaining. Choosing a renewable, clean, and non-polluting energy source is not only beneficial to the environment, but to everyone at Casale Trigoria as well. Similarly, all of our organic waste is put in our compost, which is then used as fertilizer, primarily for our olive trees.

The Apartments


Where a traveller is not a tourist

All the buildings where the apartments are located had a prior function, either as a hayloft, a barn, or a stable. The edifices, which in the 2000s were renovated, were first built in 1923 by transhumant shepherds coming with their flocks from the Apennine mountains. Each spacious apartment has at least one bathroom, a kitchen, a dining room, two bedrooms, and a den.

Each apartment is also decorated with touches from the land’s previous life as typical farm of the mid-1900s. Along with basic comforts, every apartment has a satellite TV, free wi-fi, a safe, heating, air conditioning, and (in a few) a fire-place.
The apartments are divided in three categories:

History and Nature


Our Roman countryside

Se oggi questo territorio è diventato un luogo unico, autentico, ricco di paesaggi, natura, bellezza, cultura e storia lo si deve ai tanti uomini e donne di coraggio che dai

primi del novecento, sfidando la malaria, le avversità atmosferiche ed i briganti, lo hanno abitato e bonificato con le loro capanne ed i loro armenti.

Country routes

We are located in the “Decima-Malafedenature reserve. In all of our 35 hectares (86 acres) of land it is possible to enjoy nature’s peace and tranquility. Trails starting from the agriturism lead into a valley, where one can explore and experience the local flora and fauna. From the valley the trails move towards the surrounding hills. In the following map are highlighted certain spots where one can easily forget they are a short distance from the bustling metropolis of Rome. The short distance from the capital and the splendor of nature are one of the reasons why ancient travelers of the “grand tour,” like Coleman, Gregorio da Goethe, and Chateaubriande, stopped in these very hills to paint.

The beauty and serenity of the land in and around Casale Trigoria are due to the efforts of many brave men and women, who from the first years of the 20th century battled malaria, bands of brigands, and an inhospitable territory. They reclaimed a land lost to nature many centuries prior and started the process of sustainable livelihood in the limits imposed by nature. Our patch of countryside has had a diverse and glorious past, which began from the times of the ancient Romans in the 1st century AD to our day. This land has seen moments of complete abandonment, extreme exploitation, and moments of rebirth. We hope you can partake in our renaissance.

The Staff


The management of our agriturism is family oriented, closely attended to by all members the De Amicis family. However, Maddalena De Amicis (pictured), lives on the compound herself and attends to every need you may have. Her husband, Paolo, is also frequently seen attending to guests and helping in running the day to day.
