Giuseppe have managed to create a piece of Italian heaven in the small town of Palombara Sabina just outside of Rome. We rented the villa to have our wedding. We were a total of 16 people that arrived almost a week prior to the wedding. And immediately we were mesmerized by the beautiful surroundings and the beautiful and well kept villa. The pool area are well kept with comfortable furnitures. The villa it self was impressive with large bedrooms all with their own bathroom. Spacious living room and a kitchen/ dining room to die for. The villa has several porches, that was a great feature, since we was traveling with teenagers and they could stay on the backside porch witch had table tennis and some workout equipment. During our stay we had a surprise celebration for my sisters 40th birthday. Carla the amazing chef prepared a wonderful dinner with the best lasagna and chocolate cake we ever had! Giuseppe were really forthcoming in helping us making reservations and made suggestions for places to see in Rome. He even popped by with fresh figs and vegetables from the garden! When we booked villa Tartaruga to have our wedding at, Nanci - Giuseppe’s sister in law was my coordinator. She did an amazing job and no question was to small or stupid. She even coordinated with the B&B next door where our other guests were staying. Nanci did a tremendous job on the wedding day, allowing me relax and enjoy the day and night. On the night before the wedding we had a pizza and prosecco party with all of our guests. That was a big hit with the pizza being made outside in a big pizza oven. And the pizza was amazing!
Giuseppe has not only created a piece of heaven, he has also put together an amazing crew who do they very best so that we could have the best vacation ever.
I would recommend everyone who is looking to have a wedding/ celebration/ culinary vecation or simply looking for a place to relax just a short train ride outside of Rome to consider Villa Tartaruga.
We hope to return sometime soon!
If you desire to be located within the city of Rome then this may not be the desired property for you to spend your holiday.
Access to Rome via the train from porta prima to flamina is reliable, but beware. Return trips from the Cory do not run late into the evening, even on weekends.
Despite this the property is well situated for holiday makers who have access to a vehicle.
We travelled to Naples/Pompei and Sant Marinella with our hire car. The autostrada is very close to the property and we were no more than s two hour drive from virtually all of Lazio.
The hosts are fantastic. More than happy to either engage with you or leVe you to your own devices.
The property is an authentic Italian country home, with all the necessary services and aminities nearby.
