About Juliet Haydock
I am a freelance Italian-Spanish/English translator and live in Twickenham, but try to spend as much time as possible in my house in Capena, near Rome in Italy. I'm very lucky because my job does not tie me to any particular place.
Juliet Haydock purchased this house in 2006
Why Juliet Haydock chose Capena
I first went to Capena when teaching English in Rome in the early 1980s, captivated by its charm and friendliness. People still used donkeys and did all their washing at the communal washing place. Everyone made wine and you could not pass an open cantina door without being beckoned in to share a cool glass. Weekend visits evolved into permanent residence for about two years, when I enjoyed the yearly rhythm of village life and all the festivals - while still within easy reach of Rome for work. About 12 or so years ago, I went back to Capena with my two small boys. We were welcomed with open arms and within hours a trestle table had been spread in the piazza for an impromptu party. Later, the same local builder friend who restored my larger property restored Casa Marconi as well.
What makes this house unique
Casa Marconi is ideal accommodation for a couple, either alone or with one or two small children. A lot of our guests have spent several weeks in Capena and ended up as part of the local community, even being invited to parties and for meals with the locals. The house is very convenient as a base for visiting Rome, the lakes or the Sabine hills. It is just round the corner from a very friendly bar and two minutes away from a grocery shop. Capena also has several other shops and wonderful restaurants a few minutes away on foot.
