A lovely Villa within half hour drive of Rome or Fiumicino Airport. Located at the end of a country road, the villa has a few surrounding properties at a lower level so you have clear views of the surrounding countryside and park land. As the property is located higher than Rome there is a gentle warm breeze which is nice when using the pool. The pool is clean and the automatic robot which you can drop into the pool for an hour each day soon sorts the leaf material which gets blown in over night.
There is a supermarket within 10 minute drive which stocks everything we needed and 5litre bottles of wine for 10 Euros !
The large swimming pool is just right for cooling off during the day and the warm blow up Jacuzzi pool is great for relaxing in the cooler evenings watching the swallows dipping in the pool in the early evening and bats starting to fly into the late evening. There is a pool side changing room and there is a pool side fresh water shower to rinse off.
The charcoal barbecue area is great, the real wood fired pizza oven makes fantastic pizza too and Mauro the friendly owner/property manager enables an easy start by supplying some starter wood/coals as well as providing good advice on visiting Rome and his English is great.
The Villa itself is huge, each bedroom has an en-suite. The aircon works fine but it's best to make use of open windows and doors during the cooler periods of evening and morning so the aircon doesn't need to work so hard.
Beds etc are comfortable and clean. Whole property is clean and well looked after actually. The kitchen is well stocked with all the kitchen components you need and the basement washing room is good.
We had a great holiday alternating days visiting Rome and days lazing poolside at the Villa.
I would definitely like to go back to see Mauro again, stay in his family's lovely villa and spend more time in Rome.
