Fantastic in every way imaginable
Everything was fantastic - the villa is gorgeous, the pool is the best we have ever used, the owner Laura was very helpful (she even helped me organise a surprise birthday party for my wife), and the lovely couple who live on site were so sweet and helpful. I would recommend Tenuta di Collestreto to anyone looking to spend a relaxing time in a stunning, well maintained environment with easy access to Rome and the Sabine countryside.
Hope to see you again!
Lovely farm house in the beautiful Sabina countryside.
Very lovely place to enjoy the relaxing Sabina countryside. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back very soon.
Spacious villa with beautiful pool surrounded by olive groves
We had a great week's holiday here with our grown up children. Highlights for us were the wonderful pool with crystal clear water, eating breakfast on the shaded ground floor veranda and having dinner on the first floor balcony with lovely views across the surrounding countryside. There was lots of room inside with generous bedrooms for everyone.The large billiards room was a hit with 'the boys' (of all ages!). The live-in couple who look after the property were discreet, friendly and helpful.
Perfect Italian Holiday!
My family and extended family stayed at Collestretto villa for the entire month of June. The villa is very comfortable and spacious! At times, there were 8 of us, and there were plenty of rooms and spaces for each of us to go to for “quiet time”, if needed. The bedrooms are adequate in size and the living areas are very spacious. We ate all our meals on the terrace, where the view is absolutely beautiful and peaceful. In addition to the lovely pool, there is a nice billiard room in the basement. Children and adults spent many evenings in a “friendly” game after dinner. The property is quintessential Italy…..Lovely wooden beams in the ceilings, and terracotta tile floors throughout the second floor. The villa sits on a lovely estate of olive trees. There are beautiful views from each room in the villa! The kitchen is very well equipped with cooking utensils and crockery. We ate many of our dinners at “home”, and had everything we needed to prepare delicious meals! We visited during the month of June, which was unusually hot, and the fans provided were a welcome relief during the overnight hours. (during the day, close shutters to keep out the sun, which keeps the rooms cooler) The stairs from the first floor entryway to the second and third floors are narrow and steep, which is why having the elevator was so handy for my 84 year old mother. It was also handy if carrying several loads of bags full of groceries! There are several supermarkets within a five minute drive. We used the villa as our “home base”, taking day trips either by car or by train. Tivoli, and nearby Hadrian’s villa are a lovely 30 minute drive from the villa. We also visited Assisi, Orvieto, Pompeii, Lago Bracciano, Nettuno, Castel Gandolfo, all within manageable day trips. Venice is approximately 5 hours by car, or 3 hours by train. The closest train station to the villa is about a 10 minute drive, which is conveniently on the FL1 Orte-Fiumicino line (direct to the airport).
The caretakers, Luciano and Rosalba are lovely, helpful, informative and incredibly friendly! We felt welcomed from the moment we arrived! Immediately after we settled in, they gave us their cell numbers, and told us not to hesitate to call if we needed something if they were not on the premises. They live in the apartment on the ground floor next to the elevator. It was reassuring to know that they were close by, but we hardly knew they were there! The owner also checked in frequently with us.
I am happy that you enjoyed your vacation and hope that you'll come to visit me again!
quiet, secluded idyllic villa
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the villa. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the swimming pool billiard room and football pitch were enough to keep everyone of all ages entertained.
The terrace is perfect for eating outside with its amazing views of the surrounding hills, it was also perfect for enjoying a glass of wine in the evening after a long day in/ by the pool.
The only downside was the internet, the data allowance was consumed early in the day due to the amount of devices used by our party, good for the adults but the teenagers were disappointed.
The caretakers who look after the property were a lovely Italian couple. They were discrete and we hardly saw them, apart from when they kindly made us breakfast on our day of departure.
We would certainly go to this villa again. Great holiday, thanks Laura and your team.
I am glad that you liked your stay!
Collestretto is a family property , we all love it very much.
That's why we do our best to make your vacation as enjoyable as possible.
I am sorry about the internet, unfortunately we had problems with the company that manages the internet but it will soon be solved and the data allowance will shortly be unlimited as it was before.
Sorry about that!
Hope to see you again.
Lovely Country Retreat
We stayed at the Villa for a week, it was a lovely place to stay... once we found it! though that was mainly my map reading skills.
It is tucked away, lovely and peacefully quiet, an ideal country location.
We managed to get the local train into Rome from Pianabelle di Montelibretti, couple of pointers, get your train tickets from a local Tobacconist or shop first, the cafe/shop was not open at the train station, also the Rome bound train is the other side of the track from the car park, lastly, make sure you validate your ticket!!
The villa itself is of the local character, it was comfortable, clean and tidy... the TV and satellite was not used, no real channels but you should not be using that on holiday! There was no air con but fans provided in each bedroom were fine for air circulation.
Kitchen was okay, the only point was the oven was not working, probably check it has been sorted if you are planning to cook in, we managed using the gas hobs, the grill worked but the fan oven almost woke up the Pope!
The pool was great and kept clean and tidy.
Evenings spent on the balcony with a nice glass of wine was great!!
Alberto does speak some broken English and was always helpful when needed, lovely man.
If you do stay here, go to Tivoli, its 20k away and is fantastic.
It has excellent security and grounds, it is most definitely worth the visit and would recommend it for those wanting a quiet family get away with access to Rome or Tivoli.
Darren, Sarah, Adele, Josh, Freya, Lara and Courtney
many thanks for your review.
This property comes from my grandfather and we used to live there when the children were small. I loved the place very much and I am very happy to know that you also liked the house and that had a nice holiday !
I am sorry about the oven, we checked it and now it’s ok, thanks for telling me.
I hope to see you again at Collestretto!
