Villa DiTrapano was purchased by our grandfather in 1932. The Villa sits on 16 acres surrounded by an olive orchard with lemon, orange, and fig trees. The property was originally owned and developed by Sig. Rappini and includes his 17th century Castelletto (we do not rent this) which is adjacent to our Villa. During WWII the Castelletto, because of its fortification and strategic location, was occupied by the Germans.
In 2013, we began renovation of Villa DiTrapano. This included the addition of a Travertine swimming pool, and complete reburishing of the Villa, both inside and out. The Villa offers mountain views as well as views of the town of Sezze, the plains out to the Mediterranean and on a clear day the island of Ponza.
There are a total of 4 bedrooms, two on each of the upper floors and one bathroom per floor, all of which have been recently renovated. There are two memory foam cots available for extra guests, raising the sleeping accommodation to 10 guests.
The terrace off of the French doors from the living room provides a dining area with a view of the pool, village, and Mediterranean coast in the distance. The terrace has a teak wood dining table that seats 8 people or more with a large umbrella for shelter from the sun. Ample parking space is available on site. Electric gates add privacy. 20 minutes from the Mediterranean coast and beach areas. Access to Rome from local train station in 45 minutes. Suitable as a base for traveling further south to visit the Amalfi coast, Sorrento, and Islands. Local historic towns great to visit: Sermoneta, Bassiano, Roccagorga, San Felice, and Anzio. Pompeii is also very close, as well as the Medieval gardens of Ninfa and the Abbey of Fossanova where Saint Thomas Aquinas died.
Untouched countryside. A car is essential.
