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.

Places to visit on holiday in Grottaferrata, Italy

Rome (21km), known as the ‘Eternal City’, is one of the most beautiful and ancient cities in the world, and at least a few days in the capital are a necessity during a stay in Grottaferrata.

Amazing apartment in beautiful Trastevere

5 of 5
Chiara was an excellent host and all the communication was quick and easy. We had four nights in this wonderful apartment which is a design triumph and perfectly located for everything you need in Rome. We managed to walk to all the major attractions and there are plenty of bars and restaurants in Trastevere just a few minutes walk from the apartment. Lovely roof terrace for a pre dinner drink and bikes which you can use along the path of the River Tiber which the apartment has stunning views of. Suffice to say we loved the apartment and Rome and thoroughly recommit it 😀
