Why Mariella Tommasi chose Oriolo Romano

In this place I happily spent my younger age in my parents' home. That's why I love so much this village.

Oriolo Romano, a small 15th century holiday village located among the hills at 450m asl is parte of the Sabatine chains of hills running into Bracciano lake, halfway between Rome an Viterbo. one of the main reasons to stay here is the closeness to Rome at costs definitely unexpensive.

We suggest to visit this area because, between all the attractions, in the nearby, it is possible to find many Etruscan sites: Tarquinia, Barbarano Romano with its Marturanum, Blera and Cerveteri, the antique Caere.

Close to the apartment, you can find l'Olmata, an elm groves of shady trees, where you can walk and breath 'clean' air, enjoing the peace from the noise of traffic.

In the old center of the village where shot scenes of the Oscar winner film 'Nuovo Cinema Paradiso'.

What makes this apartment unique

The location of the apartment and the breathtaking view from the windows has captured us at once.

  • 4 of 5

c'est un endroit très agréable et animé. L'appartement est spacieux, fonctionnel et très agréable. L'accueil de Mariella et Luciano a été super. Et la proximité de villages très typique et de lacs magnifiques est très appréciable. Rome est à une heure en voiture.

Nous avons séjourné avec mon épouse dans ce charmant appartement du 11 au 22 Aout 2015.

Tout s'est révélé parfait: , l'accueil, le calme impressionnant (en dépit de la localisation) et la parfaite propreté avec un équipement complet.

A signaler l'absence d'ascenseur avec 2 étages un peu pentu.

A noter que nous avons rencontrés Luciano via Abritel , car nous n'étions pas satisfait de la maison très bruyante et sonore déjà réservée pour la même période dans un très proche village.

Nos 2 grands garcons ont dormi dans la première maison et nous avons trouvé chez Stella et Luciano un havre de paix qui nous a permis de sauver r nos vacances...

I tetti, la piazza, il castello

  • 5 of 5

Arrivando e guardando da fuori il palazzetto che fa angolo sulla piazza del paese, non ti aspetti il comfort che scopri in cima alle scale. Esterno suggestivo, interno sorprendentemente ben arredato. Finestre affacciate sulla chiesa, la piazza, il Palazzo Altieri. Al piano di sopra una mansarda confortevole e tranquilla, isolata dall'animazione del paese. Mi è capitato di rado di godere altrettanto di un "fuori" e di un "dentro", circondati da un bel panorama e begli oggetti d'arredamento. Passeggiate memorabili, qualche evasione a Roma per una mostra, una pausa meditativa all'Eremo di Monte Virginio...Il piccolo ristorante sulla Piazza Altieri vale una cena. Cinque stelle meritate dalla prima all'ultima.

Perfect apartment near Rome

  • 4 of 5

Oriolo is a small town in the Lazio countryside. Not touristic, it's nice to blend in with the locals, and enjoy swimming in one of the vulcan lakes. Lake Martignano is a little difficult to get to, but worth the trip; the lake is beautiful and very clean - a good kept secret by the locals. After a day swimming you can go to the neighbouring lake Bracciano and have diner at one of the many lakeside restaurants. The apartment is a 10 minutes walk from the Oriolo train station, every 2 hours a train takes you straight to St. Pietro Square for about 3 Euro. After a long day visiting Rome's treasures, you can travel back to Oriolo, away from the noisy tourists, and have a relaxed cool beer or white wine in one of Oriolo's bars - absolutely perfect. There's a choice of many restaurants in Oriolo and nearby towns - our favourite was 'I Sapori Della Maremma' in Canale Monterano. The apartment spans the top two levels of a very authentic building in the town centre, with a matching interior - it was a joy to stay in. The owners were very kind and helpful.

Casa muy antigua pero en perfectas condiciones. En el mismo centro de Oriolo Romano. No quería ir en coche hasta Roma por el tráfico, multas, dificultad para aparcar...y acerté. A unos 50 km de Roma, con tren de cercanías por 3,00 € PAX cada trayecto, puedes ver Roma todo el día y volver a descansar al pueblo. No aconsejable para personas con mobilidad reducida o niños pequeños (hay bastantes escaleras). Aconsejable un paseo por los jardines del Palacio Altieri. Visita obligada a Bracciano (castillo, lago y pueblo con buenos restaurantes). Gracias Mariella y Luciano por vuestra amabilidad.

Owner's Response: Gracias a esta hermosa familia que alojó en nuestra casa. El consejo para utilizar el tren para ir a Roma es sin duda la mejor, sobre todo porque la estación de tren está a un corto minuti de la casa y el tren sale cada hora. La casa tiene la misma edad de Palazzo Altieri, y en la descripción se dice claramente que la casa es de dos plantas, por lo que hay escaleras. Hasta ahora las personas que han visitado han tenido ningún problema. Es sido un placer de acoger a estas personas, que han tomado el cuidado de la casa como si fuera la suya.

This April we had a fantastic stay in this amazing duplex apartment in the heart of the historic village Oriolo Romano that is located an hour north of Rome by train, bus or car.

For us this was the best of both worlds. While we loved being in a quiet historic village, we could go to Rome for the day and retreat to our serene and spacious apartment in the evenings.

During our stay we loved being able to walk around the small town that offers everything, from coffee bars to vegetable markets, a supermarket, pizzerias and restaurants. We loved experiencing life as the locals do, away from the chaos of some of the other cities we visited on our trip.

The apartment itself is very well maintained, comfortable and charming with a kitchen fully equipped to cook a meal if you so desire and even a washing machine!

Owner's Response: I wish I could use a full vocabulary in order to demonstrate the pleasure of having hosted these wonderful couple in our apartment in Oriolo Romano. They have taken care of our home with appreciation for the details and all the surroundings. It's always gratifying to share a place you love with persons who appreciate it. Thanks to our guests.
