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.

Dear Silvia and Mario, GRAZIE!!!!! Thanks so much for your kind help and your lovely villa: We had a great time. It was nice to relax by the pool before heading into the bustling streets of Rome, It's a fantastic location, wit a beautiful view, the pretty village of Formello and only a half train journey from Rome. We have been lucky to have this villa. Thankyou again. Ciao! Andy, Jane, Freya, Tom & Kez from England

Dear Sylvia and Mario, me and my family enjoyed our stay in your beautiful house, the last two weeks. It was a very succesful combination: the hectic of Rome and the peaceful surounding of your house and garden. We spend many hours under the "Ippocastano" and of course many hours in the swimmingpoll. Thanks for making us feel welcome and at home. We wish you well and good helth. Dorien Dear Sylvia and Mario, thanks for a beautiful holiday in Formello. What a nice atmosphere here in the villa: We love the house trees, the pool, the smell of Italy. Our four children had a very special time too. The vespa scooter of Mario is for the "Metafora" voor the beauty of Italy and the love of his father voor Mario. Hope to see you some where, some how!.

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.
