Formello apartment description

Set on top of a hill, just 15 minutes walking from the picturesque village of Formello , this large villa, suitable for a family group, extended families or group of friends, stands in private 3 levels, child friendly gardens, with spectacular views on Regional Park of Veii. The layout and space of the house, lawn & pool allow you to greatly enjoy your holiday. In addition to this, a quick drive to the train (15min), would take you into down town Rome for 1,50 Euro each way. This gives you the flexibility to spend considerable time in Rome or head north to explore the many experiences. Getting on the autostradas through GRA - the ring around Rome - is very close (15 min) and easy to navigate.
When back home, relax around the private out door swimming pool (large 6m, long 12m, deep from 1,20 to 2,20 m) , or, in the mature gardens ,enjoy sunset on the west side and the wonderful view northwards across hills and miles of countryside infront of you!
The villa, divided into 3 apartments, can comfortably accommodate 10+ people with 3 ensuite bedrooms plus 1 separate WC in the Main apartment on the ground floor and 2 double bedrooms plus a full shower room in the guest apartment on the second level of the garden.
The owners, Mario and Silvia, a couple - more or less - sixty years old, live in the third apartment, with private access, on the first floor. They respect the privacy of their guests but, speaking both English, are happy to give any help if requested.

                                  Car: Necessary

                                  First of all it is due to say that car is necessary.

                                  The villa is just 2 km from Formello village centre, it takes about 15 minute to walk down, less if the wind is at your back. Located in the Regional Park of Veii, Formello is a small village and his “centro storico”, with narrow streets and ancient houses, is worth to be visited. Do not forget to visit also the Church of San Lorenzo (10th-11th centuries) and Palazzo Chigi built by the Orsini, probably over the pre-existing castrum in the eleventh century. It houses the Archaeological Museum of the Countryside of Veii. The famous ancient road Via Francigena passes here. The route passes through England, France, Switzerland and Italy. The route was known in Italy as the 'Via Francigena' ('the road that comes from France') or the 'Via Romea Francigena' ('the road to Rome that comes from France').In mediaeval times it was an important road and pilgrimage route for those wishing to visit the Holy See and the tombs of the apostles Peter and Paul. Nowadays, in Spring and Summer, many groups of pilgrims, walking from the far North, take this road to reach Rome.

                                  In Formello you find a small supermarket, shops, banks, restaurants , pizzerie, bars and caffees. “Bar Lai” and “Bar Sabatino” are famous for their yummy ice creams. At few steps from the house, half way between the villa and Formello, enjoy a tasty pizza at “La Pineta” restaurant.

                                  Bigger, well stocked supermarkets and shops are in “Le Rughe Mall”, 6 km further on via Cassia 2bis northwards.

                                  Formello is a good location to use as a base for touring first of all to Rome, only 25 km far, than to Bracciano lake with its waterfront old villages Bracciano, Anguillara and Trevignano - you can be there in 30 minute maximum-. Viterbo also is worth to be visited and so many others Etruscan villages and natural beauties in the north of Lazio Region.

                                  When going to Rome, you can live your car at the train station and comfortably reach town centre with metro trains passing every 10 -15 mimutes.

                                  2 metro train stations are 15 - 20 minutes driving from the villa.

                                  * FR3 – Station Olgiata in Via Cassia– stop Valle Aurelia – connection with Metro A or stop St. Peter - connection with bus 64 running to the centre – cost of the ticket Euro 1.50 (slow trains - 30 minutes to reach St.Peter)

                                  * Roma –Viterbo – Station Saxa Rubra in Via Flaminia – stop Piazzale Flaminio – Piazza del Popolo – connection with Metro A – cost of the ticket Euro 1.50 (good trains - 15 minutes to reach Piazzale Flaminio)

                                  All in all, in about 40 minute you are in the centre of Rome.

                                  Year Purchased: 1982

                                  About the owner: My husband and I moved in this villa long time ago. My children have grown up here and enjoyed the quietness and healthy air of the country side, not so far from Rome downtown, where they used to go to school.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Formello:
                                  When first we visited the house, we fell in love with the impressive view of the Parco di Veio in front of it. No matter if there was lot of work to do to restore it, we were young and strong and that house, in that location, ought to be our home! We live here since 30 years, we made a lot of changes and now the house can comfortably host friends and visitors in full privacy.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                                  Location and quietness are the main benefits of this house.
