What a lovely and relaxing stay we had at Chez Raz. We felt immediately at home in the comfortable house, despite a delayed journey from the UK, and Paola and Paul made us feel welcome from the minute we arrived. Ample living and bedroom space in the house and a substantial amount of outdoor space too - a peaceful garden full of fruit trees (the vines were laden with delicious grapes). Great sized pool for our 12-year-old to enjoy and lots of beds and seats for us 4 grown-ups to relax in too. Loved the outdoor kitchen, great idea for those sultry warm evenings and hot days. Spent lots of time fussing over the collection of cats and Snoopy the dog, as well as playing table tennis, table football and lots of board games.
Velletri is in a lovely part of Italy, with easy access to lots of places - we only managed a day trip to Rome - and wonderful food and people. We did experience the worst summer weather for around 25 years - quite amazing thunderstorms - and would have liked a little less rain but it did bring respite from the otherwise fierce sun.
We hope to come back as Chez Raz is such a home from home and we'd like to spend more time in the area. Highly recommended!
This magnificent villa was more enchanting than our wildest dreams! The beautifully painted walls and ceilings and the Roman statues made us feel like we had stepped into a Caesar's villa. There are panoramic mountain views from the long balcony. The huge pool with a waterfall is surrounded by beautiful flowers, Roman statues, grape vines and palm trees. There is a massive covered terrace with couches, swing, large table and BBQ that is enchantingly decorated with colorful hanging flowers and vines. There is a pool table and whirlpool tub!
Lucia was really helpful with anything we needed. Her father who owns the villa was on site, taking care of the pool, and he was very kind, giving us a box of figs from the fig tree and a large bowl of ricotta from the bakery!
Rome is just 40 minutes away.
I highly recommend this spectacular villa, you will feel as if you have stepped into a Roman dream!
