Trevignano Romano house description

The house is on top of a hill in the middle of a big garden (13,000 square meters) overlooking a wonderful valley with an untouched landscape and view on the lake and, when it is clear, even of the sea! There are two entrances to the natural park (no cars) a few minutes from the house. The house has a short private road driving you up to your entrance through the garden. Ideal as a romantic gateway for nature lovers, you would be the only guests and you will rent the whole ground floor of about 130 m2 with a beautiful living room (with dining table, fireplace, library, chaise longue and 2 sofas), two independent bedrooms one with direct access to the garden, one bathroom near the bedrooms with cabin shower, bidet & washing machine, a fully-equipped kitchen, veranda, then two porches both with table and chairs, two tufo terraces and a pergola. Only in the Summer (Mid June - Mid September) and under special conditions you can rent also a semidetached veranda which is used as 3rd bedroom for larger families with its own small bathroom and shower. The garden is quite special with its Mediterranean flora and its beautiful spaces offer plenty of privacy and you can actually ' wandern' within the park. There are at least 7 different places where you can rest in total privacy with many tables, chairs, and also beds both for the terrace in front of the house and for the terrace at the pool. All at your complete disposal where you can choose to eat, rest, read, write, etc.

A part from the garden our guests appreciate the comfort of the house, especially the 'best equipped kitchen', the beds, our International library, the elegant furniture both inside and outdoor (no plastic!), the cozy best Jotul Norvegian fireplace, the laundry washed and ironed, and every year we keep investing in something new: guests who come back are always pleasantly surprised with a novelty! In 2007 the hit was the new summer swimming pool with wood terrace, in the middle of the garden with a stunning view, of only sky, green and lake. Usually there is a wonderful breeze and even when in Rome the heat is unbearable here is very pleasant, but just in case we acquired a moveable air conditioning for exceptionally hot days.

In 2008 we introduced the high quality Emu garden furniture, in 2009 the new outdoor table tennis and more important, ecologically speaking, a 4 kwh solar system on the roof, in 2010 more garden furniture and in 2011 two new tufo terraces in front and next to the house. In 2013 we remodeled the bathroom with a new cabin shower and new lavabo and furniture and for 2014 we installed lights to enjoy the garden also at night.

We will be there to welcome you and introduce you to the house and the area and on and off for maintenance and for emergency you can always reach us on our cell phones. Our entrance is totally detached from yours and on another level and we have a small atelier and garden on the back that you do not see. The whole garden is made of dozens of terraces and each step you have a surprise with a different perspective.

There are villages all around, but the nearest one is Bassano Romano, with all shops, 2 supermarkets open also on Sunday, market on Wednesdays and pizzerias and local restaurants only 2,7 kilometers away. You can find a larger choice at Trevignano or Sutri or Ronciglione (also Bio store) which are nearby.

Ideal for one couple or two friends who wish to feel merged in nature but also for families with children or different compositions up to 4 adults. It may exceptionally sleep up to six( or more with the extra semidetached). The weekly price is for occupancy for 2 adults in one or in 2 bedrooms in the main house.

In the Summer months you can refresh and swim in the new private outdoor pool with wood terrace. We also have a regular bocce field under a wonderful oak tree and a 'tufo' stone amphitheatre that is sometimes used for open air performances or exhibitions, but not when we have guests staying in the property, of course!
The location is highly strategic for all kind of tourism and for longer vacations (we had many guests for 4 or 6 weeks) but also as an ideal one week rest if you are traveling around Italy by car. Near Trevignano and the Lake of Bracciano in the middle of beautiful nature, with history, culture, and art at easy reach. Rome is less than one hour away as well as the Mediterranean Sea, but much nearer are the many lakes and the thermal springs and the beautiful Etruscan, Medieval, and Renaissance villages and Palazzos all around. One of the best golf course of the area of Rome is just 10 min. away and the lakes of Bracciano, Martignano, and Vico are real jewels, as well as Bolsena a little more north.

Distances to Rome Fiumicino Airport: 68 km,
to the centre of Rome : 52km,
to Viterbo and hot natural spa: 35km,
to Argentario-Orbetello 95km,
to Niki de Saint Phalle Park: 80km ,
to Pisa: 300 km, to Pompei/Naples: 290km.

Nearest train Station 12 km: Capranica/Sutri (train arriving to Rome San Pietro- Trastevere and Ostiense).
Nearest bus stop 3 km (bus arriving in connection to Metro train to Piazza del Popolo).
To visit Rome as an alternative to the train or bus we suggest to drive not during rush hours in less than 30 min. to Saxa Rubra - Free Parking near Rome and then take the metro train, a 10 min. ride takes you right to the centre, 5 min. from the Spanish Steps. Many guests made it in less than one hour with the right connection.

Ideal place next to Rome, Tuscany, and Umbria. We would help you to plan your excursions with a complete list with distances and suggestions, but we warn you: you might just enjoy the peace and the beauty of the place! Shorter stays are possible only to fill in holes and price has to be defined according to the season and number of guests.

We have just received a little poem by a young guest:
' Why should we go
to Roma and to Pisa
when we are far better off
at HH's and Elisa! '

You should have a car in order to move around, if you are happy just with walks and a few excursions then we could meet you at the nearest train stations of Capranica-Sutri or Bracciano and drive you home. We have had guests who have just enjoyed the garden and walking distance surroundings for one week! The last three kilometers of country road drive you away from everything and you are in the middle of real nature in your own park.

We have beautiful and quiet cats outside in the property so usually no dogs and people strongly allergic to cats should not go near them. The cats are not allowed to go anywhere inside and guests who love cats should play with them outside. We often have had allergic people and they had no problem.

In Winter we provide free wood for the Jotul fireplace stove with glass and ventilator which can warm up the whole space. If you use also the central heating you pay gas according to consume, but we do offer a free allowance for hot water, cooking and basic gas heating of 50 l per week.

We do not publish our phone number any longer, as if we do we get flooded by calls of other websites trying to sell us their service. We are happy to call you back, but please first write to us an inquiry and your land line number where and when we can reach you.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1993

                  About the owner: We, my husband Hans-Hermann (German, artist and biologist) and myself, Elisa (Italian, art and garden curator) are multilingual and multicultural and we love sharing the enchantment of this place with our guests. We are professionally involved in the arts - visual, audiovisual and nature , and we consider our garden a form of work of art. We are very proud of our new solar system on the main roof, a sign of our ecological engagement and of the sustainable management of our garden, among 'The most beautiful parks ' of Italy.

                  Why the Owner Chose Trevignano Romano:
                  At first sight we fell in love with the stunning view and the landscape, and we think we had an incredible luck finding a piece of natural paradise from where you can reach Rome and two airports in less than one hour.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Peace, sun, breeze, nature, close to everything you need for a memorable vacation ( Rome, the lakes and the coast, hundreds of destinations, restaurants) , and when you are in our garden you are away from all what you do not wish to have around (noise, crowds, pollution, etc.)
