Barbara and Tony look forward to welcoming you to their lovely villa above the picturesque and historical mountain village of Nemi. Not only is the traditional Italian villa spacious and professionally interior designed, it has the seemingly endless Castelli Romani forests at it's doorstep, and the shores of the mystical Nemi lake just a short walk away.
Nemi has remained famous for thousands of years since the emperor Caligula entertained on ancient Roman boats on the lake. Today, visitors can enjoy visiting a wealth of amazing Roman sites in the area, the volcanic purity of the lake's water, or the abundance of fresh local Italian produce.
The Pope's summer palace is close by, as is lake Albano and the famous and beautiful town of Frascati.
The village of Nemi has a supermarket, bakery, 17 restaurants, 3 cash-points, galleries, a pizza bar, a chemist, a post office - and not forgetting the stunning views across the lake and the ocean.
A holistic, calm and spiritual household, we have a tastefully decorated, quiet and comfortable double room complete with a modern ensuite boasting a range shower. The room also boasts a private balcony overlooking the garden and pool, and is separate from the main part of the house, and can be accessed directly from the garden.
Secure parking is also available and is complimentary, as is a delicious fresh breakfast served daily. Complimentary toiletries are provided, as are fresh towels and linen.
We have lived in the villa for a very enjoyable 15 years, and although of English roots, are very knowledgeable of many areas of Italy which we will happily share.
As you will see from the pictures, the house is beautifully decorated and furnished with stylish pieces we have collected from our time living in Asia, and our travels around the world!
In addition we also offer you the chance to unwind and ease away your aches and pains at the Reiki & Relaxation centre which forms part of our home.
Dinner is available at €30 per head inclusive of all drinks. Special diets are catered for with advance notice. Airport collection/drop-off is conveniently available at approximately half the price of a metered taxi fare and gladly organised on your behalf (€25 from Rome Ciampino. €75 from Rome Fiumicino). Special rates also available from Rome Termini central railway station, or a taxi from the nearest train station is just €10.
By car the 30kms to central Rome can usually be covered in 45 minutes and the nearest railway stations are only 20 minutes away at Albano and Frascati. There are many excursions available to local places of interest, shopping venues etc.

We had a fantastic time staying with Barbara and Tony who made us feel very welcome in their beautiful house! Room was very pleasant, clean and relaxing with our own bathroom and balcony space. We could also get in and out of the house via our room so this meant we were free to come and go at any time without disturbing the rest of the house. Our daily breakfast (delicious!!) was served in the gazebo for the sunnier days, we didn't want to leave the table to be honest! Very very helpful, warm and cheerful hosts with a wealth of knowledge of the local area, and they also kindly gave us a few lifts when we needed them too. They have quite a few cats and dogs - this was a bonus for us as we love them. If you don't mind animals, they will not bother you as they will keep out of your way unless you approach them (they can't get into the bedroom, most live outside). If you for some reason despise animals/have severe allergies... this may not be the place for you! Overall, the perfect balance of being able to make ourselves at home and do our own thing, we'd stay again in a heartbeat. Thanks!!
Three Moons Retreat is a place where you want to stay forever.. unfortunately our stay was only 1 night, but we still keep the desire to return for a longer stay. Barbara and Tony are very kind and welcoming people, who will do their best to make you feel like home in their lovely home, designed by themselves. The atmosphere of the house and peaceful surroundings made us sleep like babies in the first floor room with separate bathroom. The breakfast served in the cozy garden will impress you. We hope everyone will enjoy Three Moons Retreat as much as we did and we would love to come back one day for a longer stay.
