Property description

Over the past 20 years, travelers have enjoyed a unique vacation experience staying in our lovingly maintained 18th Century villa and ancestral home, Casale Sonnino. The Villa is built upon 2000 year old foundations and set amidst thirty acres of working vineyards and olive groves, 40 minutes from the heart of Rome. Featured in 'Gourmet Magazine' and 'The Boston Globe', in articles written by enchanted guests, the Casale Sonnino has been called 'home' by families, groups of friends and fine artists with their paint brushes. Many return year after year to enjoy the small town Italian hospitality, excellent local restaurants and authentic country living, yet be close to all that Rome has to offer.

Indeed, the Casale Sonnino is your perfect home base for exploring the beautiful hill towns of the Castelli Romani, touring the central Italian countryside from Florence to the Amalfi Coast and, of course, basking in the art, antiquities, history and the thriving 'dolce vita' that is Rome.


More About the Property: The Coliseum, the Roman Forum, the Vatican Basilica and Museum, Piazza Navona, the Borghese Gallery with the famed Bernini Statues, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain and, of course, designer shopping near the Piazza di Spagna are less than 1 hour away. When you sip your wine or espresso on the Casale’s terrace at sunset, the whole city sparkles before you.

Our guests have often commented that the Casale is a 'timeless place'. After a busy day of touring, you can rest comfortably surrounded by antiques as well as the modern day amenities of home. You can prepare your own meals in the fully stocked kitchen or have your dinner catered by our own local chef. Most of our guests prefer dining out at one of the many local restaurants - we'll tell you about our favorites when you arrive.

For families with children, the Casale is a 'place out of time'. Guests of all ages can pick figs, grapes and berries, explore the maze of caves from the 12th Century buried below the vineyards, visit world class museums and learn about history layer by layer. When staying at the Casale,you can leave the high-tech video whirlwind behind and slow the pace down. At night, you can play ping pong, foosball, cards or read a good book. When blissful sleep washes over, you can dream about the interesting places you have seen and the adventures that filled your days.

The Casale Sonnino sleeps up to ten, six to eight persons most comfortably, in five bedrooms and three full baths.

Housekeeping, daily breakfast, laundry service (surcharge for large groups), utilities and wifi are included in the weekly rate. Tour guide and cook service are available upon request. Heat is extra based upon consumption.

Over the past 30 years, we have hosted hundreds of artists, groups of friends and families who come to relax, paint, tour the countryside and hear stories about the Casale, the land and its owners through the last 2000 years. When you come into our home, you are sure to experience a special camaraderie and an unforgettable sojourn in 'La Bella Italia'.
