Other Rome Properties villa description
Welcome to our little piece of paradise, Villa Helios (The Sun)! As soon as you will enter our place you'll be enchanted by a sunny atmosphere making you instantly feel relaxed and joyful!!!
Our home is in the countryside, nestled in a safe gated community located in Via di Fioranello between Ardeatina and Appia Antica (Appian Way) – a mere 5 minutes driving from Ciampino airport and NATO Defense College! It’s the perfect place for a family willing live Rome without being worn out by the Capital’s acoustic and air smog. In particular, your children will absolutely adore the garden gears and toys, while the pool will provide a nice refresh in the summer. Tennis and soccer players will also find their peace of mind.
Our home, named Helios, spreads onto 3 floors, sourrounded by the on both sides by the garden.
The house is divided into two independent apartments and one can choose to rent the main apt or the whole villa. it is therefore the ideal place for a family reunion. The two parts of the villa are completely independent from each other and though they are linked by an internal stair, 4 doors between the two ensure total privacy!
The main apt spreads onto all 3 floors. On the main floor there is the kitchen, the living room and dining room, three bedrooms (one King, one bunk or single, one queen) and the main bathroom. From the dining room one accesses the terrace, its gas BBQ and outside table, as well as the garden. The living room has a romantic fireplace. On the third floor there a lovely mansarda with en-suite bathroom. It can be used either as a bedroom or as a study. On the ground floor there are washer and dryer, as well as the fitness room (step, running tape etc).
Great care has been paid to materials; wood floors in the bedrooms, beautiful carpets, wooden furniture plus bright orange wall happy kitchen, beautiful pictures on the walls, porcelans… the house has been appointed for giving a warm, sunny, bright feeling.
The garden has all the amenities children and adults may hope for: castle, slide, trampoline, sand box, climbing mountain, wood BBQ and a lanai with a large table for enjoying your family and friend’s company etc
Golf lovers will enjoy Golf Fioranello - 3 minutes away - offering the fascinating experience of playing golf among ancient Romans’ ruins! The proximity of Latium famous sandy beaches are just 10 miles away– though you may want to avoid summer week-ends (much better the pool!!).

Had a great time staying here. Villa was spacious and comfortable, gardens were beautiful with a very relaxing atmostphere. Guilio and Federiga extremely friendly and helpful. Would recommend hiring a car as only a short drive into Rome (just beware of Roman way of driving). Children aged 15, 18 and 7 thoroughly enjoyed their stay and made constant use of the pool, which was a minutes walk from the villa. Highly Recommended - Thanks Federiga and Guilio.

Had the pleasure of staying here in June 2006. Our host Guilio was charming, friendly and very helpful. The house is absolutely beautiful with a very large garden at the rear. There were 8 of us ranging from 12 years to 81 years, so there is plenty of room. I would strongly suggest a car. The bus service runs in the morning and middle to late afternoon, so if you wanted to be out late you would need to use taxis. There are shops nearby in Ardeatina - 3 minutes by car, 20 minutes walk. Turn right at the bottom of the street. We had a lovely time and can strongly recommend the villa.

Why the Owner Chose Other Rome Properties:
well, this is our home - though now we now mainly use it as a vacation home... we were looking for a place and fell in love with this place. it's beautifl, quite, sunny, happy... previousely we were living in the center but though Rome is soo beautiful we could not stand the acustinc and air pollutionanymore. here when we get home we feel we are on holiday and relax immediately...
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
we are in the countryside but because we are at the border of the appia antica (Old appia) national park the drive into the city is easy and quick. we have a large and relaxing garden with two BBQ - a wooden one and a gas one - and plenty of kids equipment - they grow every year... in fact, we live in kids's paradise. we live in a gated community with common pool, tennis, soccer field. the neighbours are incredibly discreet, yet very nice if you need help.
