Upon arrival we were met with a very warm welcome, despite it being very late, with pizza, food and drinks for the next morning. Driving upto the house past the wine cellar and olive trees you get a pleasant surprise as to how big Manfredo's home is. The next day we explored the tennis courts, gardens, tintello, wine cellar and olive grove. The house is spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need, bottle opener, electric socket convertors, books on local area as well as reading, maps, sharp kitchen knives, games for the kids... It really has been a home from home. We had a thunderstorm which blew out the electric, but this was resolved quickly and we were kept informed all along, it wasn't just us it was the whole street. The location to Rome is about 25/30 minutes away from the local station into Rome termini, but check the timetable as we missed one and had quite a long wait for the next one, but the parking was free. In the surrounding area there are some amazing places, palestrina, tivoli, ostia and of course Rome. I do recommend a car whilst there. We drove down to the amalfi coast with a few stop offs on the way, about 2.5 hours drive. The shops are nearby to the house and sell everything you'll need, except calpol, antihistamine paracetamol etc.. Which we'd been advised to take before hand as can be expensive when found.
We enjoyed the local take away pizza shop on more than one occasion
This home is perfect if you've got children and cannot be out everyday as there is some much for them to do at the house, swimming, tennis, swings, slide, ping pong, big gardens and skipping the list goes on and because its gated both ends of the garden it's safe. The kitchen inside is very adequately stocked with cutlery, crockery, pans and cooking utensils. It has a fridge freezer, electric fan oven, gas hob, dishwasher, toaster, dual sink and washing machine in the utility toilet room. There is 3 big double bedrooms, 1 single bedroom, 2 bathrooms upstairs and 1 down, with a utility room that also has a toilet and sink
There is a pizza oven in the front of the house, but we did not get time to use this, there was also a bbq avail if we wanted. There is plenty of outdoor furniture, tables chairs and sun recliners.
I can honestly say that our only fault with this wonderful home from home is you have to leave it..... But hopefully we will be welcomed back in the future where we will be able to enjoy all that is available again.
We had a very nice stay for 10 days in the Roman Country Side Villa near Rome in Gallicano nel Lazio. The owner was very friendly and helpful whenever it was needed. The house is very nice and clean. Ideal for small family with 1 or 2 children looking for a relaxation holiday. Within 30 minutes of Rome is offers great opportunities for sight seeing. Beautiful country side.
Truly recommendable !
