If you want to see real Italy, this is the perfect place to come. The cottage is 50sqm perfect for a couple. However take advantage that there are no added charges for additional guests or for cleaning. The owner is always very happy to help you and give you directions. The view from the garden has been described as what you imagine Italy should be like. Surrounding fields are full of vines and olive groves. Less than 2 kms from Metro C line (35 mins to centre). Free car park at station. On bus route to metro. Supermarket 2min on foot. Cottage is in English owner's large garden where there is an olive grove, small stream, barbecue facilities, friendly dogs. Just 10 minutes drive (7kms) from Frascati, the cottage is in the middle of a wine growing area. You can visit some of the many local beauty spots which include Tivoli, Frascati, the ruins at Tuscolum. For a day at the beach, Lake Albano where the Pope spends his summer. Reiki treatment available. If you don't just wish to visit Rome but want to explore the local beauty spots.
The location is perfect for all seasons. In autumn you can see the locals gathering grapes/olives. Take a walk around the Lake of Albano, collect sweet chestnuts. In winter the local ski resorts are only a little more than an hour away, where you can ski or merely toboggan or maybe even get a sun tan. For those who don't like the summer heat, it's a perfect time to explore. Apart from the sightseeing the Valmontone Outlet Store is only 20 minutes from the cottage.
In springtime activity begins in the vineyards. Garden enthusiasts will be delighted to see the gardens open to the public around Rome about which I am happy to give information. One of the most beautiful is Ninfa, open Apr to Nov, first Sat and Sun of month. Apr to June, third Sun of month, 1 May. After Ninfa enjoy lunch in nearby medieval town of Sermoneta. Pompeii is only 2 and a half hours by car.
Of course in the summer the beaches at the Lake Albano are friendly and safe. Very suitable for small children and a great place for adults to relax on a sun bed, in the shade of the trees at the edge of the lake. There are some delightful private swimming pools which are surprisingly inexpensive and only 15 mins by car. 25 mins away there is a big, fun, open air water park buzzing with life and entertainment. For a day at the sea only a little over an hour by car.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
