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.

My grandfather, Ernesto, was born in Sora, Italy in 1890. He left for America in 1906 to find a "better life". Actually, he was leaving his abusive step-father whom he would watch abuse his mother. He left his mother and sister behind, vowing to return one day to bring them to America and to get away from the abuse at home. He did create a beautiful life in Rhode Island and he did return to collect his mother 4 years later. However, his sister married and stayed in Italy. In the over 100 years, Ernesto's family grew to over 90 Italo-Americans. While in Italy, his sister, Christina's family grew to almost the same size. As many of the "elders" in my family were in their 80's, Athena, my beautiful partner and I decided to create a once-in--a-lifetime reunion. We needed lots of coordination, facilities that would accommodate 2 large receptions and a responsive staff. Right from the start, it was clear that Adriana and her team would be able to help. They were amazing. The house was better than the photos, the staff quickly became part of our family, the food was wonderful and beautiful memories were created as part of this very special trip. We brought over 20 family members from Rhode Island and about 30+ of our Italian cousins showed up for 2 separate catered events, with live music, tents, sit down meal service, bar, flowers, and translators it was beautiful. We sat outside around the pool in the beautiful private grounds of the villa. The elders, met their cousins for the first time. There were hugs, tears, laughter, dancing and true connection. Adriana, thank you...what a wonderful magical place! It was truly a once in a lifetime event. About 8 weeks after the reunion, Zia Anna, the matriarch of our Italian family passed away. She was honored at both family festas and was a beautiful woman. The last time I saw her, she was smiling, with tears in her eyes and she gave me a big hug thanking us for creating this special moment bringing the family of Christina and Ernesto together for the first time.

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!
