Chez Raz is an italian/scottish family-run B&B and apartment rental in a country villa near the town of Velletri in the Castelli Romani hills.
The villa is an easy 20 km drive from Ciampino airport, where most of the European low-cost flights arrive (including Ryanair and Easyjet), and just 45 kilometres from the centre of Rome.
With its panoramic views and large private garden Chez Raz is the perfect location for a secluded and relaxing country break. The villa is well placed for trips to local lakes, mountains, and some of the best beaches on the Lazio coastline. For sightseeing in Rome, a convenient train runs regularly from the local station to the centre of the city.
Guests have access to a swimming pool (15 May-15 September) (sometimes shared with the owners), a big private garden with tables, chairs and barbecue, ping pong table, table football and trampoline.
Interaction with Guests
My door is always open so I am happy to give you information about the area, Rome, and local events.
The surrounding area offers many possibilities for those who enjoy the outdoors and nature: characteristic villages and towns can be found perched on the nearby Lepini mountain range (Rocca Massima, Cori, Sermoneta, Segni); natural parkland and lakes are within ten to thirty minutes drive (The Regional Park of the Castelli Romani with the Monte Artemisio summit and the Lepini mountain range with the Monte Lupone summit) offering even sports lovers ample opportunities for nature treks on foot or MTB; for lovers of the sun, sand and salt water, we are situated a convenient distance from the best beaches of the central Lazio coastline (Circeo, Sabaudia, and further to the south Sperlonga and Terracina); at not more than twenty minutes in the car, you can find the lakes of Castel Gandolfo and Nemi; otherwise, lose yourselves on an enogastronomic adventure from town to town in the Castelli Romani (Genzano, Ariccia, Albano, Rocca di Papa).
To get around you would really need a car, but if you are only coming for a short time and you only want to stay here or visit Rome, we offer lifts to and from the station at the rate of 10 euros.
