So, where to start: the house is stunning; the photos don’t do it justice - it’s a lot bigger than it looks and had more than enough room for two families with kids from 15 - 21. Well equipped kitchens, brilliant movie projector and speakers that really made our evenings, and welcome air con in the living space. It’s on multi levels which adds to the feeling of space, and all rooms had bathrooms and almost all a balcony too. The pool was the star: really deep for diving, bigger than most and a great temperature in late August. Lots of outdoor seating places to spill out to. Formello is walkable and has a few nice places to eat plus a great gelateria and bar just as you go in the old town gate. It’s also easy to drive to a station (20 mins) to go into Rome. The parking was free but beware the lack of ticket office! Also easy drives to Tivoli (go!) and other pretty castles and hilltop towns. The owner’s communication was excellent. Thoroughly recommend for groups or families with older children.
Lovely spacious villa with great pool and gardens. A little more tired than the pictures portray. Needs a little TLC: broken door screens, closet drawers etc, and AC in the single bedroom doesn’t work. The downstairs bedroom is very hot too, AC would be a definite and necessary improvement. The fan down there also did not work and no hot water in downstairs shower but plenty of bathrooms elsewhere in the property. Another villa being built next door which you can see from the lovely patio, but didn’t give too much noise. A short drive to the train station makes it easy to get into Rome and there are good supermarkets nearby. Our group of 9 enjoyed meals on the patio cooked on the BBQ and in the modern kitchen. Loredana is super friendly and helpful too. All things considered this is a nice property to visit.
