Make a holiday rental home or villa in Grottaferrata, Italy your home away from home

Grottaferrata is a small town on the lower slopes of the Alban Hills of Lazio, 21km south-east of the centre of Rome. Along with several other towns and villages, Grottaferrata makes up the Castelli Romani – a group of comunes known for their beautiful rural locations near the lakes of Nemi and Albano. Grottaferrata is revered for its 11th century abbey, excellent restaurants and high-quality accommodation.

Things to do in Grottaferrata, Italy

A Grottaferrata villa is a great choice of base for exploring both the rural and urban parts of the Rome province, and can help you to successfully combine activities and relaxation periods of your holiday. The town has a number of sites of historical interest, with the main one being the Abbey of Santa Maria di Grottaferrata - parts of which date back to the 11th century. The abbey displays a high standard of architecture and is notable for its library of over 50,000 ancient volumes.

The Castelli Romani is well-known for its cuisine, and Grottaferrata has a number of restaurants where you can sample the local fare. Traditional specialities include thin and crusty pizzas, roasted pork and variations on that old Italian favourite – spaghetti. This can all be washed down with a glass of two of the excellent local wine. A typical meal will consist of a starter, a pasta dish, a main meal, dessert and coffee, and you can expect to pay considerably less in Grottaferrata than you would do in an eatery in the centre of Rome.

She made us feel so welcome and she was very helpful and friendly with everything we asked her about. She is very personable, and you honestly feel like you are getting the superstar treatment from her. I spent weeks and weeks looking for the right place to rent for our time in Rome, and this apartment is simply perfect in all ways. Extremely clean, everything works great, everything is solid and quality and you can tell there has been a lot of pride and passion put in to making this place so nice. In my opinion, the location is the best in Rome, it's central to everything and if you are happy to walk you can walk to everything in the City (We were there in a 40 degree heatwave, so we generally took a taxi out in the morning and spent the whole day working our way back for the evening out after a freshen up). With so many cobbled streets and places to stop for a Gelato, coffee, cake or sightseeing etc... The walking doesn't seem like a chore. The apartment is just around the back of the Campo De Fiori square, if you are looking to stay in this area, look no further, this apartment is perfect!

In a rather shabby little street you get access to the apartment through a beautiful green door with polished copper details. After approx. 60 steps -no there is no elevator- you enter the beautifully decorated apartment that easily sleeps 4 ( two large bedrooms and two rather small but well equipped bathrooms). If you decide not to take your morning coffee in one of the excellent bars in the neighboring streets, you can take advantage of the kitchen and do the coffee routine ( or cook a complete meal if you feel like doing that) yourself. In the adjacent living room , a very large and another large sofa allow you to sit back and relax after another buzzy day in ancient Rome. And if you want, you can even step outside and enjoy the small yet inviting terrace!! candles lights make the romantic picture complete. obviously, there is room for improvement: the floor isn't exactly what you would be looking for , but I understand from the owner that overtime, together with more improvements, this issue will be tackled . So all in all , great experience and a place to come back to.
