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.

Our daughters are 12 and 15 and we didn't fancy having 2 separate hotel rooms but we wanted to treat ourselves to nice accommodation. This apartment exceeded our expectations, it's simply amazing. It's very spacious, modern, clean, nicely decorated, and had everything we needed and much more. The location is superb. Really close to the Vatican and within walking distance to main tourist attractions. Furthermore, Marzia is the most amazing host. She answered our endless emails before we got there, sent us plenty of useful information about Rome, arranged the taxi transfers, and even helped to organise a birthday surprise for my husband. We will certainly return and definitely recommend to anyone looking to stay in Rome!
