The property definitely lived up to expectations for a family reunion and birthday celebration. The facilities were excellent and with a well equipped kitchen and breakfast room. The games room with full sized pool table and juke box (learnt some new Italian classic songs!). The pool area was clean and furnished with numerous chairs and tables to enable all to sit in the sun or shade. A bonus was the lemon trees at the front - perfect for a gin n tonic! The owner had, at our request, arranged a cook for one night for a special occasion which as spectacular the dining room.
Wij hebben genoten van dit mooi huis met alles er op en aan o.a. een heel fijn groot Zwembad.
The house was a perfect location for 3 generations of the same family to enjoy an Italian holiday. The house exceeded expectations and was enjoyed by all members of the family. Everyone loved the pool, which was large and had a small diving board at one end.
Especially enjoyed was the gelateria in Capena and the wine shop in Morlupo.
Spacious and well equipped villa for a family reunion. The pool area was excellent. Close to supermarkets and restaurants but the large kitchen, and breakfast area, were well equipped. We hired a cook, arranged by owner, for a fantastic evening dinner.
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 advice to visit the nearby lake of Bracciano, renaissance mansions such as Palazzo Farnese in Caprarola, Villa d'Este in Tivoli without forgetting the Roman ruins of Villa Adriana. The lake of Bracciano has 3 charming villages, Bracciano with the famous Odescalchi Castle, Anguillara and Trevignano (all can be reached by ferry). On the coast we strongly suggest to visit the ancient city of Ostia and it's immense archaeological area (unique in the world). Following the coast in northern direction there are lively places as Santa Severa and Santa Marinella or you can visit Cerveteri and Tarquinia (with the famous Unesco heritage of the Etruscan necropolis). 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 )
ABOUT SOUTHERN UMBRIA
In Umbria, a region that has gained a name for being the green heart of Italy, tourism is growing because of the unfamiliar harmony between nature, antiquities, historic centres and culture. The quiet of the countryside, good provisions and an inimitable cuisine are the great draw. Southern Umbria forms an ideal starting point for enjoying the peace of the surrounding hilly and mountainous landscape and on the other hand making trips to beautifull towns like Todi, Orvieto, Narni, Spoleto. There are also numerous charming little villages to visit – many of medieval origin - as Amelia, Labro, Spello, Norcia, Bevagna, Montefalco. In many towns and villages you can taste local dishes or buy local wines and olive oil (generally of excellent quality). Near the city of Terni you can also visit the Marmore falls (165 meters, one of the highest of Europe), there is nearby also a rafting/canoeing/hydrospeed center.
