The year that just ended has been a challenging one, but at Tenuta di Paternostro it was a moment to gather our strength and think of the future making it a very fulfilling time.
We are grateful to all the wonderful guests that came to stay with us, to those who couldn't but followed and participated in the life and lifestyle from afar and to the incredible support of some of the most important writers and columnist in the international press, who have reported on Tenuta di Paternostro and enchanting Tuscia.
We are delighted to share with you some inspiring stories and beautiful photography, while waiting to be able to welcome you again soon.
With Love and energy

"TENUTA DI PATERNOSTRO, UN HAVRE DE PAIX.
Majestueuse et sobre, la Tenuta di Paternostro s’étend sur plus de trente hectares de champs consacrés à la production d’huile d’olive et à l’élevage de chevaux. […] Du lever au coucher du soleil, corps et esprit sont nourris et choyés. […] Des balades à pieds ou à vélo et des séances de yoga sont organisées sur place. Les amateurs de la petite balle blanche rejoignent facilement le Sutri Golf National et le Tarquinia Golf Club, situés à proximité de la mer, à moins d’une heure de voiture."
CONDÈ NAST TRAVELLER USA
BY STEVEN KING
"The tenuta, or estate, is a ranchlike spread outside the pretty hillside town of Vetralla, with an ochre-toned villa set among olive groves and rolling pastures populated with retired racehorses that belonged to Olivia’s father. [...] The more time I spent here, the more I came to enjoy its comforts and to admire the sensitivity of Olivia’s taste, which accounts not only for its opulence but for its warmth; its wholesome good vibes, as well. "
CORRIERE DELLA SERA
BY ROBERTA PETRONIO
"Purosangue selvaggi che galoppano liberi all'orizzonte, aperitivi al tramonto con lo sguardo che corre ai trenta ettari di verde, pranzi chic nel fienile, e un grande casale ristrutturato dal noto duo di architetti Lazzarini & Pickering."
BY MARIA SHOLLENBARGER
"Paternostro has to be one of the more stylish conversions in these parts - a showcase of contemporary design and antiques, textiles and rugs from India and Iran and Kazakhstan, hard-stitched bedlinens and a few outrageously gorgeous sets of highly collectible porcelain tableware from a long-defunct factory that produced exclusively for the Borghese family. One of the hay barns has been converted into an open-air living room, furnished with kilims and throw cushions, vintage rattan furniture, and a working jukebox loaded up with good R&B tunes."

"Un luogo connesso tra terra e cielo, con cavalli, antiche grotte etrusche per meditazione e colori da tramonto in Africa, a poco più di un'ora da Roma."
BY STEVEN KING
"I was especially fond of the small, plain desk in my room—a desk, I fancied, like one Leonard Cohen might have had in Hydra in the ’60s, only this one was illuminated by a huge chan-delier that dangled from a distant ceiling, quite unlike anything Leonard Cohen might have had in Hydra."
SOLE 24 ORE - HOW TO SPEND IT
BY MARIANGELA ROSSI
"È un pomeriggio di fine estate nella campagna della Tuscia, a circa un'ora da Roma, e nove cavalli si muovono liberi nella luce del tramonto, tra profumo di fieno e di erbe selvatiche. Dopo queste parole, Olivia Mariotti, ex manager della moda e del lusso, oggi proprietaria della Tenuta di Paternostro, mi invita a raggiungerla, insieme a una coppia di altri ospiti, per una sessione di Horse Healing, ovvero meditazione con i cavalli.
