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.

The groundskeeper, Michele, was really so helpful. He kept making sure we were satisfied with everything and checking if he could do anything for us. We loved the location, the peacefulness, how well equipped it was and the pool was wonderful to swim in after a long day in Rome. There were some delightful towns close by to explore with great grocery stores and excellent restaurants. The trip into Rome was easy and quick. We would highly recommend this place to anyone!

The Villa is very spacious, with a large enclosed garden. The staff were most helpful and couldn't do enough for us! We didn't have a car and 'Cornelio' even drove us to the local supermarket and helped us do our shopping! The trains from Frascati to Rome take about half an hour and were on time, air conditioned and very cheap! We also found a great Taxi company that could speak English. The shared pool was only a 5 minute walk away. Very lovely peaceful location.
