About the property

The property lies just outside the town of Monterosi, 40 Kms from Rome and 5 Kms form the lake of Bracciano in a quiet location.

There are two houses for rent, each house is around 90sqm (own terrace equipped with table/chairs & BBQ, living/dining room, kitchen, 2 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 single beds on mezzanine in the living room), each has 6 sleeps + a cot. The property is also suitable for 2 families who want to go on holiday together (max 12 persons + 2 babies). There is a large well maintained garden (completely fenced) and a 6x10 meter pool with romain stairs at disposition of the tenant/s. There are also some bycicle available. Shops and restaurants are at walking distance (supermarket, bar, bank and 2 restaurants are all around 500/600 meters far away). 4 more restaurants within 2 kms from the property.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed here in June 2016. We had a car and used it as our base while visiting Rome. The property is quite remote, walking distance to a small residential village. The owner GianCarlo was so friendly that I cried when it was time to say goodbye. He was like a grandfather to my 3 sons for the few days we were there, even brought us cherries he had picked from his garden that morning and home made Italian cake. The gardens are huge and great for the children to play in. The pool is spotlessly clean and when we were there we had the pool all to ourselves, it was like having a villa with private pool. We met some of Giancarlos family, one if his grandsons spoke excellent English and it was lovely to be able to chat with local people.

average rating of 4.0 based on 7 reviews

Nice property with some small minorities

  • 4 of 5

Great private swimming pool (8m x 4m x up to 2,5m depth) with enough deck chairs available, large garden with toys for especially young children, bikes on site, nice and gentle owner on site but unobtrusive, all services (internet access, water, electricity, gas, towels, ...) included.

Minorities: owner is monolingual italian, unstable internet connection (wifi with 2 repeaters), inefficient lighting of the kitchen, top floor too low, too much annoying and stabbing mosquitoes, airco only available at extra extra cost

good place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Garden with enough space and very nice swimmingpool.

House was clean with good kitchen and possibility to buy air conditioning.

Very nice owners (do not speaks English) , but helpfull and acting in the back ground.

The house is situated is only 700 meters from Monterosi a small town.

One remark , the second floor is slanting so you have to watch your head.

What a great place for a family holiday

  • 4 of 5

Loved this place. So private and spacious in the most wonderful grounds with super pool. Local town is nice but limited although there are a couple of lovely restaurants and in particular Los Puros which is a must and within easy walking distance. Thanks to Giancarlo who was hospitable and while available, kept his distance to allow us to have a very quiet, private stay. I would recommend this place to anyone but particularly to families who enjoy the peace and quiet of a rural and rustic location. Thanks GIan Carlo.

lovely little retreat

  • 4 of 5

we found this place really difficult to find..the directions to get there were pretty basic and we would recommend a GPS as essential. once there we had a great time, lovely place . although lots of noisy dogs in the neighbourhood at night time, so mot much sleep. a trip to the lake is well worth it, and its pretty easy to get to rome on the train if you only want one day trip. if you want to go into rome more than once then recommend you stay closer.. if you want a country retreat in a typically italian country town, then this is it..:)

Bracciano lake
Car: recommended

The property lies 5 Kms from the lake of Bracciano with his charming villages & towns of Trevignano-Bracciano-Anguillara. The nearest sand beaches of the Bracciano lake are near Anquillara (18 Kms) and the town of Bracciano at 24 Kms. The nearest sand beach at sea is 40 Kms far away. It is also well located for golf holidays, the Golf Club Nazionale Resort ( http://www.golfnazionale.it/ ) is 3,4 Kms far away from the property. There are 3 more courses at 16, 30 and 37 Kms (Golf club Olgiata & Golf club arco di Costantino, Parco di Roma golf Club).

Lazio has a rich historic and natural heritage which, together with a mild and sunny climate for most of the year and a tradition of simple and wholesome food, makes it one of the most interesting regions of Italy. In addition to the magnificent city of Rome we suggest to visit the pretty villages around the lake. Bracciano with the famous Odescalchi Castle, Anguillara and Trevignano that can all be reached also by ferry boat. On the coast there are lively places as Santa Severa and Santa Marinella or visit Cerveteri and Tarquinia (with the famous Unesco heritage of the Etruscan necropolis) or more to the south the ancient city of Ostia and it's immense archaeological area (unique in the world). In the surroundings you can also go to the thermal baths of Stigliano (at 25 kms) or Terme dei Papi near Viterbo (40 kms). Visit renaissance mansions such as Palazzo Farnese in Caprarola, Villa d'Este in Tivoli without forgetting the Roman ruins of Villa Adriana. Visit www.visitlazio.com/en/home ,the official website for tourism of the Lazio region, for more information. There are also many theme parks (waterparks, amusement parks....link )

To reach the property from the airport of Rome by public transport:

Ciampino: take the Terravision bus-service to reach the Termini station . You can also take the bus-service Schiaffini to reach in a few minutes the Anagnina station, here you can take the underground to Termini.

The bus stop is around 800 meters from the holiday homes.
