Simply Amazing...! Lifetime Memories

  • 5 of 5

We will never forget the beauty, the staff, the food, the location and support provided by Adriana and her team which provided the backdrop for our Italian family reunion.

My grandfather, Ernesto, was born in Sora, Italy in 1890. He left for America in 1906 to find a "better life". Actually, he was leaving his abusive step-father whom he would watch abuse his mother. He left his mother and sister behind, vowing to return one day to bring them to America and to get away from the abuse at home.

He did create a beautiful life in Rhode Island and he did return to collect his mother 4 years later. However, his sister married and stayed in Italy.

In the over 100 years, Ernesto's family grew to over 90 Italo-Americans. While in Italy, his sister, Christina's family grew to almost the same size.

As many of the "elders" in my family were in their 80's, Athena, my beautiful partner and I decided to create a once-in--a-lifetime reunion. We needed lots of coordination, facilities that would accommodate 2 large receptions and a responsive staff.

Right from the start, it was clear that Adriana and her team would be able to help. They were amazing. The house was better than the photos, the staff quickly became part of our family, the food was wonderful and beautiful memories were created as part of this very special trip.

We brought over 20 family members from Rhode Island and about 30+ of our Italian cousins showed up for 2 separate catered events, with live music, tents, sit down meal service, bar, flowers, and translators it was beautiful. We sat outside around the pool in the beautiful private grounds of the villa.

The elders, met their cousins for the first time. There were hugs, tears, laughter, dancing and true connection. Adriana, thank you...what a wonderful magical place!

It was truly a once in a lifetime event. About 8 weeks after the reunion, Zia Anna, the matriarch of our Italian family passed away. She was honored at both family festas and was a beautiful woman. The last time I saw her, she was smiling, with tears in her eyes and she gave me a big hug thanking us for creating this special moment bringing the family of Christina and Ernesto together for the first time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this review and for sharing the touching story of your family's history and journey. We at Commendable Rentals and at Villa Vesta were all moved by the love, the thoughtfulness and the generosity that went into this trip of a life time that you offered to your family. It was our pleasure to help make this two week long event the dream that you had planned for almost a year. It was our leasure to book wheel chairs and bikes, wheel chair tours of the Vatican and Colosseum, visits to Rome and to your family birthplace, Wine tastings, and of course the two gala feasts that you offered your family. You are a rare and kind person and it was a pleasure to meet you and to share this journey with you both. Thank you for your confidence in us and your feed back, particularly to Adriana , who is one of the treasures of the Commendable Rentals Team. Best wishes to you all from all of us, Susan Doull and the Commendable Rental Team.

Perfect place for large groups

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week as a family of 20, ages ranging from 5 to 76! The pool area functioned as a gathering place - lots of space for everyone. We had a great experience where cooking was not a problem, we played tennis and soccer. The bedrooms all have a private bath and comfortable beds.

I can highly recommend the place for large groups!

Unbelievable Place for a Family Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We had our family reunion with 18 us staying at the villa. It was an amazing vacation. The groundskeeper, Michele, was really so helpful. He kept making sure we were satisfied with everything and checking if he could do anything for us. We loved the location, the peacefulness, how well equipped it was and the pool was wonderful to swim in after a long day in Rome. There were some delightful towns close by to explore with great grocery stores and excellent restaurants. The trip into Rome was easy and quick. We would highly recommend this place to anyone!

Owner's Response: We are absolutely delightedly that you enjoyed your stay in this little "paradiso Romano". It is indeed, perfect for an extended family like yours, and a great compromise between Rome and the Italian countryside. I hope that you will contact Commendable Rentals next time, too. We loved helping you plan your time and look forward to hearing from you again. Susan
