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. The other towns and villages of the Castelli Romani region are also well worth exploring, with neighbouring Frascati (3km) and Marino (5km) both famous for their white wines and just two of your many day trip options.

Weather in Grottaferrata, Italy

The summer weather in Grottaferrata is absolutely glorious, with hour upon hour of sunshine and an average daily temperature of around 28C. Spring and early autumn are also great times for a vacation in this part of Italy, having warm and dry weather without being overly humid. Winter temperatures are mild, and if you do not mind the odd shower you can still enjoy a holiday during this season.

we stayed a while ago in this extremely well located apartment ; it is the combination of the location- literally in the shadow of the Pantheon- and the quietness ( you actually hear nothing but some birds) that make this place so unique. In a rather shabby little street you get access to the apartment through a beautiful green door with polished copper details. After approx. 60 steps -no there is no elevator- you enter the beautifully decorated apartment that easily sleeps 4 ( two large bedrooms and two rather small but well equipped bathrooms). If you decide not to take your morning coffee in one of the excellent bars in the neighboring streets, you can take advantage of the kitchen and do the coffee routine ( or cook a complete meal if you feel like doing that) yourself. In the adjacent living room , a very large and another large sofa allow you to sit back and relax after another buzzy day in ancient Rome. And if you want, you can even step outside and enjoy the small yet inviting terrace!! candles lights make the romantic picture complete. obviously, there is room for improvement: the floor isn't exactly what you would be looking for , but I understand from the owner that overtime, together with more improvements, this issue will be tackled . So all in all , great experience and a place to come back to.

Lovely apartment close to Vatican, restaurants...

5 of 5
We had a lovely short break, staying in Paola's apartment. 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!

Unbelievable Place for a Family Reunion!

5 of 5
We had our family reunion with 18 us staying at the villa. It was an amazing vacation. 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!
