Castel di Tora is a hidden gem and Paolo and Melina are wonderful hosts. The view from the home is magnificent, like waking up in a painting each morning. We stayed for a little over 2 weeks and really loved it. Many great restaurants nearby, everybody was friendly, many beautiful hikes nearby, and the lake is amazing for swimming and kayaking. I would highly recommend this place.

This place is gorgeous! As our first Air BNB experience, it could not have been more perfect. From our pickup at the airport, the scenic view we had outside our window, culture of Castle Di Tores, food/ restaurants in the village, to the people we spent time with were all beautiful! Paulo and Melina gave us an experience that we could not have received otherwise. The accommodations were great! Clean house with everything we needed. Our host we're so gracious and always around to help with recommendations and transportation. They treated us like family and made us feel right at home. We are forever grateful for the hospitality Paulo and Melina showed us during our first stay in Italy! We highly recommend this place, along with the other Air BNB homes Paulo and Melina offer!!!!

Paolo was the most arranging and comprehensive host I've ever been to ! Ready at the last minute, he offered not only a place that will remind in my mind forever, but also offered help at every stage of this improvised trip. His friend Sandro literally came to the train station (30 minutes away) and took me back to it (at 4am !! Just unbelievably kind and helpful). I got to use a fully equipped appartement (no washing machine though) and enjoy amazing times close to the fireplace, playing cards, drinking wine, eating every day at Viola and Angelo's bar called Dea, who will host you as if you were their own kids. I just feel so ashamed that I broke glasses their, and really hope he will let me make it up to him by paying for what has been broken !! I still feel so sorry, even my cleaning was not the one I used to do (even though each part used has been cleaned), cause I usually also clean the linens along wiping and washing ! I hope he will pardon this clumsiness and put it on the fact that the early check-out wasn't so much anticipated

The house was cleaned and fresh linen and towels provided. Puala was very prompt in communication and he organised a pick up etc through his friends. His friend Davide organised some fabulous hiking expeditions.

Authentic Italian home in a traditional town. Lovely view out the front door and bedroom balcony where we had breakfast and coffee. Well equipped kitchen. The apartment stays cool during the heat, we were there in the middle of summer and coped ok without air conditioning. We were able to have a late check in (for a fee) which was appreciated. The apartment is on a very steep street, my husband dropped me up in the car each day! But that is how you get the good views and is very typical of the area. Free parking is down the hill. The town is cobbled and traditional and not at all touristy. There are a a couple of small shops for a few basics, we did a big shop on Rieti for most of our supplies. There are a number of restaurants in this town and the one across the bridge, Colle di Tora. The lake was amazing to swim in each day. This is very much a traditional Italian home which may not suit everyone but we had a lovely time and it was just what we were on the lookout to find.

We LOVE travel.
And when we're out, we always prefer to stay in private homes to enter in touch with locals people/use/food/etc..

But we love our city too!
It's hard to know evreything about Rome, so we like so much to discover hidden places, and share them with our friends..
Recently we started to rent some flats, 'cause we like to know new people from all over the world, it is a "different way" to discover other countries, and we like to share all we know about the Eternal City.

So don't hesitate to contact us if you're planning to visit the Eternal City, we're ready to answer to all your questions about Rome, and also about our flats ;) !

looking forward to hosting you at MANZONI HOUSE in ROME
