About the Property

Villa with adjacent Cottage sleeps 8 plus 4

Luxurious country villa with cottage for BB,short or long rents in the heart of the Etruscan countryside. Set on a picturesque property just 25 minutes from the heart of Rome, it lies right between Lake Bracciano and the warm waters of the Mediterranean. Perfect for cooling off in the heat of the summer, it takes 15 minutes to reach these amazing beaches. Surrounded by lush organic gardens, this estate is rich with history. Set into the hillside on the south side of the property, historic Etruscan caves fill with sun in the afternoon.
The beautiful studio apartment is separate from the main Villa and offers enough privacy for even the most discreet of guests. With room for two guests -or a small family- the apartment is self catering, with marble countertops in the kitchen, a luxuriously tiled en-suite bath and wood burning stove to warm the chilliest of nights. The hand-crafted linens come from Farfa, a beautiful nearby town. Pressed from local olives, fantastic olive oil will be available for purchase to all guests, as well as seasonal organic vegetables, jams and farm fresh eggs.

You may use it as a home base to explore the rich cultural history of Rome and the surrounding areas. The nearby lake and hill towns are filled with 3000 years of history. You can also simply choose to relax in the beautiful countryside, either way you are sure to enjoy your stay. Luxurious massage, horseback riding, cooking lessons and culinary excursions are available upon request. From the luxurious private Cottage, to the well-appointed rooms in the Farmhouse, there is something perfect for every guest at The Grotto!

We generally have a no tv policy, and though there is wireless internet and a key if that doesn't work, sometimes in the country side, nature reigns and the line stops for sometimes an hour or more........ and you end up taking a beautiful walk instead.

Generalmente non forniamo televisione, e nonostante c'è wireless internet, ed una chiavetta, spesso nella campagna , regna la natura e non funzione anche per delle ore, e alla fine, si fa una bella passeggiata .

the cottage can sleep 4 persons. each added person after 2 is an additional 15 euros. Winter heating include a pellet heater, additional cost for gas radiator heating. We ask a deposit of half the total payable to paypal suncave@email.it Leslie Poleri. We require also the commision of paypal to be paid in cash with total at the end of the stay, thanks
