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 beds were very comfortable and everything was very clean. Shower is big and very easy to use. There is a lovely atmosphere around the apartment but we heard no sounds from the street at night when we closed the window. We did not use public transport as all the sights of Rome were near. The only time we used the metro was when we visited the Protestant Cemetery. We ate beside the Pantheon and in Piazza Navona. Excellent food and although we visited in February we ate outdoors. Mary was very helpful and we heartily recommend her apartment. This was our fourth visit to Rome and staying here made it extra special.

She was very helpful, welcoming and sorted out a restaurant for us on our first night when we arrived late - even taking us there herself! The rooms are beautiful, well furnished with all you could need. Lovely bakery/café just opened very close buy with cakes to die for. Rome itself is just amazing - we walked miles, used the local buses and found everyone helpful and welcoming. Thank you Paola!
