The Space

“Villa Velka,” which takes its name from the well-known Etruscan young woman Velia Velcha, is a splendid countryhome very near (24 km.) to the Tuscany contry and sea, and at a stone's throw from the Latium seaside. It is situated in the residential complex along the Tarquinia coastline called Marina Velca-Pian di Spille, a quiet and secluded area with pinetree lanes and silent pathways dotted with spacious luxury villas and tiny cottages. The Tarquinia Country Club is here, a nine-hole golf club immersed in the greenery, with its golf school courses and its charming restaurant. Next to it, the Piazzetta: a café, a newspaper stand and a tobacconist during daytime and a pleasant place where to enjoy an aperitif for a perfect evening start.

We are in the heart of Tuscia, the northern Lazio maremma, where history and arts have left their uninterrupted marks from the time of the Etruscans to the nineteenth century.

The property is surrounded by the greenery of a large landscaped garden with cypress, pine and eucalyptus trees standing out from oleander and pomegranate bushes.

“Villa Velka” is a brick wall house with daring roofs and numerous windows which make it particularly bright and full of light. It is an elegant, exclusive and cozy residence designed to protect your privacy and your need of seclusion.

Two spacious bedrooms (queen-size and king-size beds) with shared bathroom at the ground floor (on the right side of the large entrance hall) can be considered nearly as a separate suite.

On the left side, a very large living room with fireplace, the dining room, the ultra-spacious fully-equipped kitchen and another bathroom. All the rooms of the ground floor surround and enjoy the sight of a small patio’s greenery.

An ample staircase lands to the second floor with four king-size bedrooms (two with separate bathroom and two with shared bathroom), while a spiral staircase gives access to the attic with another king-size bed and a window facing the tidy countryside of the former Ente Maremma.

From the foyer, the same staircase goes down to the wide garage (with some bikes) and to the basement, where the wood for the fireplace is ready to be burnt.

“Villa Velka” is cool during the summer season and warm in winter; it is the perfect location for both a romantic and intimate stay or a joyful vacation with your large family or with friends.
“Villa Velka” is the perfect place for those who like the beauty of doing nothing at the fireplace or sunbathing in the garden, as well as for those who prefer swimming, playing golf, biking or doing excursions of archeological, historical or naturalistic interest.

The villa is fully equipped and elegantly furnished, ready to welcome groups of friends or big families with many kids, especially in occasion of Christmas or Easter holidays.
Velca villa comfortably accommodates 11 people. Upon request, the attic can be made available (double bed) as well as the servant's room (single bed).
(There are several possible Special Offers.)

“Villa Velka”, dal nome della fanciulla etrusca famosa in tutto il mondo, è uno splendido esempio di villa di campagna a due passi dal mare. Sorge nella zona residenziale del litorale di Tarquinia, Marina Velca-Pian di Spille. È un’area riservata e tranquilla, con i suoi viali di pini e le sue stradine silenziose in cui si susseguono grandi ville signorili e piccoli villini-cottage. Qui, immerso nel verde, sorge il circolo del golf (9 buche) del Country Club, con la sua scuola di golf e il suo accogliente ristorante e nella Piazzetta un bel caffé, tabacchi e giornali, che la sera diventa un luogo piacevole per l'aperitivo.
Siamo nel cuore della Tuscia, la maremma laziale, una delle più importanti mete di viaggio del centro Italia, dove la storia e l’arte hanno lasciato ininterrotti segni dal tempo degli Etruschi ad oggi.
“Villa Velka” è circondata dal verde di un vasto giardino dove svettano pini, cipressi ed eucalipti, rallegrato dai melograni e dagli oleandri.
La villa è caratterizzata dalla muratura in mattoni, dai tetti arditi e dalle numerose finestre che la rendono particolarmente luminosa.
È signorile, elegante, accogliente e capace di garantire intimità e riservatezza.
Al piano terra, sulla destra del vasto ingresso, due camere da letto con un bagno in comune costituiscono quasi una piccola suite a parte.
Sulla sinistra si apre il grande salone con camino e successivamente la sala da pranzo, la vasta cucina, la stanza e il bagno per il personale di servizio. Tutti questi ambienti ruotano intorno ad un piccolo patio il cui verde è visibile da ogni ambiente.
Una scala conduce al piano superiore dove si trovano quattro camere da letto, di cui due hanno il proprio bagno personale e altre due dividono un bagno. Una scala a chiocciola conduce alla mansarda abitabile che guarda lontano verso la campagna ordinata dell’Ente Maremma.
Dall’ingresso la stessa scala scende verso il grande garage dove sono a vostra disposizione alcune biciclette per adulti e bambini e la cantina dove troverete pronta la legna per il camino.
Fresca d’estate, calda d’inverno, “Villa Velka” è perfetta per un periodo di vacanza con i propri amici, in compagnia e allegria, ma anche per matrimoni, feste, sessioni di terapie di gruppo residenziali, stage professionali, corsi yoga, ecc.
"Villa Velka" è perfetta sia per coloro che amano il fare niente intorno al camino o leggere nel giardino, sia per chi vuole nuotare e prendere il sole, o giocare a golf, o andare in bicicletta o visitare borghi e zone di interesse archeologico, storico o naturistico.
La villa è perfettamente arredata e attrezzata, pronta ad accogliere, col suo calore e le sue comodità, gruppi di amici, familiari e bambini, specialmente in occasione delle Feste Natalizie o Pasquali. Villa Velka ospita comodamente 11 persone. Su richiesta la mansarda può essere messa a disposizione (letto matrimoniale) come pure la stanza della servitù (un letto singolo).
(Sono possibili diverse Offerte speciali.)

The Neighborhood

From here, unforgettable and enchanting trips—either naturalistic or historical/archeological—are possible. Tarquinia, at a distance of 4 km only, is a real jewel-town with its medieval churches, its Communal Palace, its walls and gates facing the countryside, its superb Archeological Museum and the peerless Etruscan necropolis, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Beaches, markets, swimming pools and bathhouses are all at a walking distance (km 1.5). A little bit farther, at the Lido or in town, supermarkets, pizzerias, restaurants and all kind of shops, such as goldsmiths (who still realize jewels in the Etruscan style), small antique dealers and an elegant wine-bar which is also a bookshop café.

Another few kilometers, and you can find Civitavecchia (embarkation point to Sardinia) Tuscania and Saturnia with their Thermal Baths, where you can enjoy the pleasure of taking a hot, healing and relaxing bath even at night.

And then the oasis of Vulci, with its Archaeological Museum, the Badia Castle, the Abbey Bridge, the stunning waterfall at Lake Pellicone on the river Fiora.

From the etruscan-Roman little town Calcata, (that keeps its historical and naturalistic patrimony intact), you can rent a kayak and descent along the river Treja rapids.

Other wonderful not-to-be-missed sites include Viterbo (the beautiful City of the Popes), the Tuscan Monte Argentario and its splendid beaches, the Bolsena lake and its two islands. All these destinations can be easily and soon reached by car (car rentals on site).

La villa è il punto di partenza per indimenticabili e affascinanti passeggiate di natura storica-archeologica e naturistica.
Prima di tutto, a 4 km. il Comune stesso di Tarquinia, vero gioiello con le sue chiese medioevali, il suo Palazzo Comunale, le sue mura e le sue porte sulla verde campagna, il suo splendido Museo Archeologico e l’ ineguagliabile necropoli etrusca, patrimonio dell’Umanità, protetta dall’Unesco.
Dalla villa in 5 min. in macchina (o se vi fa piacere in bicicletta) è raggiungibile la zona marina, dove troverete anche markets, piscine, stabilimenti e spiaggie aperte a tutti.
Verso la città poi o al Lido (10 min. macchina) troverete grandi magazzini, pizzerie, ristoranti, ed ogni tipo di negozi, quelli degli orafi che ancora realizzano gioielli nello stile etrusco e piccoli antiquari. Ma anche un raffinato locale, che è insieme winebar e cafè-libreria.
Ma spingendosi più in là di pochi km potrete visitare Tuscania o le Terme di Civitavecchia, l' importante porto d'imbarco per la Sardegna (15 Km.) o quelle di Saturnia, dove si possono fare caldi e salutari bagni anche notturni.
E poi il Parco naturalistico archeologico di Vulci, il suo castello e la sua Abbazia e il laghetto del Pellicone sul fiume Fiora.
Da Calcata invece si può discendere in kajak il fiume Treja.
Non mancate la gita a Viterbo, la meravigliosa città dei Papi, o al Monte Argentario, col suo splendido mare, o il lago di Bolsena e la sua isola.
Ognuna di queste località è facilmente raggiungibile in macchina (affittabile sul posto).

Getting around

The best mode of transportation to reach the villa is a private or rented car. There is also a train from Termini Station (Rome) to Tarquinia and from Tarquinia Station you need to take a taxi. I can book taxi for the guests but I don't cover the cost. Rent a car at the Termini Station, however, is the recommended solution to have a car available on site.
Il modo migliore per raggiungere la villa è in macchina. Dall'aeroporto di Fiumicino bisogna affittare una macchina per raggiungere Marina (website hidden) sono treni da Roma Termini a Tarquinia. Dalla stazione di Tarquinia bisogna prendere un (website hidden) posso prenotare il taxi che gli ospiti pagheranno direttamente sul posto interamente a loro carico. Affittare una macchina alla Stazione Termini è però la soluzione consigliata per avere sul posto una macchina a disposizione

  • Marina was an amazing host, really nice and gave us all the information we needed to get to the apartment and answer our every question regarding to where to go and how to get there.
    the apartment was super cute and cozy and functional for all of our needs.
    plus the location of the apartment is amazing, it's a quiet location with more local people then tourist (which for us was what we looked for). it's literally 5 minuets walk from the Colosseum and from other really amazing locations in the area.
    we came to Rome for our honeymoon and marina was the perfect choice. you should definitely check-in here.

  • Logement propre, bien situé (près de colisée) dans un quartier très calme, bien équipée...
    Impeccable pour 2 personnes.

    May 2014
  • Studio idéal pour 2 personnes idéalement situé dans une rue calme avec de beaux immeubles. Non loin du métro et des commerces. Marina est une hôte sympathique. Nous avons passé un bon séjour à Rome. "Tenera la notte" correspondait bien à la description sur le site.

  • Marina is warm and helpful and a very good host. Communicating was no problem
    and there was no problem checking in or out. The flat is even nicer than the pictures, it is bigger than we thought and the terrace is lovely.
    Very good kitchen (no oven) with four burners and lots of pots and pans and cutlery etc. We cooked many of our meals there, and enjoyed them on the terrace.
    We stayed for two weeks and were happy with the area, local shops and
    would recommend it to anyone.

  • Actually all of the other guest who visited Marina's apartment in Rome already said what we experienced there. A small, but cosy, light and clean apartment. Everything we needed was in there. At first we had some trouble to find the wifi-network on our devices, Marina was very helpfull and responded quickly to our text-messages. We found that the wifi-connection was best in the kitchen and the little terrace. We loved the little private terrace, the wheather was ofcourse helpfull ;) For a sofabed, the bed was allright, only a little bit short for my husband who's tall, but it was not much of a problem. The location of the apartment is great for visiting all the highlights of Rome. The metrostations Vittorio Emanuelle (A-line) and Colloseo (B-line) are both on a five minute walking distance. The neighboorhood (Monti) is nice and quiet and has enough good restaurants. We loved Rome!

  • Very compact unit, but very comfortable to come home to after a day walking in the city. WIFI a little patchy, but we found it works better in the little courtyard. Comfortable fold out bed. 20 mins walk to Roma Termini. 5 minutes maximum walk to Colosseum & Colosseo Metro Station and bus stops. Marina was very friendly and gave us a map. Would stay here again.

  • Marina's apartment was great! It was the perfect size for us and was in a great location!

    In a few minutes walk of shops and cafes. It take only few minutes to get subway and bus.
    It was unforgettable week at Rome!
    Thank you Marina!

  • Marina is a perfect host. In the booking process she resolved a difficulty we were having in 24 hours. Her English is very good (despite what she will tell you). We communicated effectively via texts when our bus was late. After our stay, we feared we left our camera behind as we couldn’t find it anywhere, and wrote to her. She replied very quickly that she had searched the apartment for us. Thank you so much Marina, sorry we caused you trouble.
    The apartment was perfect for us (travelling as a couple). The somewhat small space had been utilised tremendously; it was very clean, cosy and comfortable. The apartment felt fresh and modern; the terrace and air conditioning made it great to relax in. The whole street is beautiful, with historic buildings and flowery trees. The location is great; there is a park at the bottom of the street which leads straight to the Colosseum. Moreover, Ancient Rome and the “centro storico” are well within walking distance – and if you don’t feel like walking, the bus and metro stops are close by. Marina left us a great map detailing almost the entirety of Rome, many monuments, and the metro. She also left us two small bottles of very nice wine. We had a fantastic time in Rome and would recommend this apartment to anyone.
