About Jamie Labate
I like to treat my guests as I would myself like to be treated. Fair play and honesty are my policy. My home holds many happy memories and means a great deal to me and I try to be careful to rent the property to guests who will love it like I do and treat it with respect.
Jamie Labate purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Jamie Labate chose Tarquinia
Villa La Farfalla has played host to many vulnerable groups, Italian and English: most regularly people with learning disabilities. I am sure that paying guests will be happy to know that their money is helping to fund such projects and ventures. Every year we try to improve the property so that guests will have the holiday of a lifetime. Our philosophy is to give back to society what we have received. Groups described above are personally known by the owners and are selected by them.
What makes this Villa unique
There are breathtaking views from the balconies. During the balmy summer nights you can make a wish on the magical shooting stars that dart across the sky; listen to the crickets chirping in the trees and at the break of dawn watch the hoopoos strutting across the lawn searching for worms in the early morning dew.

Ons verblijf in Villa La Farfalla
Het wat een hele mooie grote villa in Italie, de villa is groot genoeg voor 12 personen, heel netjes en schoon. de zwembad is groot en heel goed onderhouden. er is aan alles nagedacht en maakte ons verblijf gemakkelijk. het is dichtbij de strand. we hebben een perfect verblijf gehad met zeer goede service van de verhuurders. ze zijn heel goed bereikbaar en beantwoorden alle vragen heel snel.
enige nadeel was dat er geen elektrische stofzuiger aanwezig was wel stof en blik maar met zn grote villa moet je af en toe stofzuigen. er is geen wifi en ook geen airco aanwezig, wel zijn er in elke slaapkamer ventilators aanwezig en s'avonds koelde het wel af. Wij hebben gelukkig ook geen last gehad van de muggen binnen de villa.
Wij hebben een heel fijn verblijf gehad en raden deze villa zeker aan.

Tarquinia lido: 9 km, possibility to rent bicycles and pedaloes, join aqua gym classes and sample the local cuisine at one of the hundreds of restaurants or trattoria along the lido. The Saint Agostino beach, very popular amongst the young, is about a 20 minute drive from the villa.
Ryanair, Easy Jet, Virgin, British Midland Baby, Wizz, Alitalia, Jet2, all fly into Ciampino or, as the case may be, Fiumicino airport. Ciampino is about a 1-1/4 hour drive and Fiumicino just under an hour. From Pisa airport it's about a 2-1/2 hour drive but it's really easy and is a straight superstrada all the way. Good train link takes you right to Tarquinia railway station, a 10 minutes drive from villa. Car essential.
Tarquinia: 9km. Etruscan tombs: 11km. Montalto di Castro: 9km. Rome: 90km (one hour by train to San Pietro). Grosetto: (Tuscany 60 km). Viterbo: (Etruscan town of great beauty) 30 km. Vulci (Etruscan ruins, nature reserve, medieval castle): 15 km. Tuscania: 30 km. Pisa: 2-1/2 hours. Florence: 3 hours.
During the summer months the Community "Mondo Nuovo" a kilometre from the villa, makes its own bread and offers a selection of home produce (honey from their own bee hives), spit-roasted chicken, aubergine bake, roast potatoes (you are advised to order it as it's all in great demand) and home grown fruit and vegetables. There are two local wine merchants about 7km away and you can taste the delights of their local vintage. They have their own traditional table wine (excellent quality/price) and superior wines at very reasonable prices if you really want to treat yourself. You have a choice of supermarkets both on the outskirts of the town and in the industrial zone. In the other direction (going towards Grosetto) you have Montalto di Castro, which is only about 8 km away from the villa. There too there is a beautiful beach with all the amenities available. The local Tarquinia market is held on a Wednesday and Saturday morning in the city and at the lido. If you wish an even wider choice then you can try the market in Civitavecchia (28 km away) which is held every morning except Sunday. It's easy to get to and there is a free navette service every 15 minutes from the entrance of Civitavecchia direct to the market, so no problems parking.
