Cultural and sightseeing holidays
Holidays on a cottage
The villa, the garden and the swimming pool is for private use.
I will welcome guests at the house and hand over the keys.
The house is located between Vejo park and the Tiber valley in “Colle del Fagiano” near the villages Castelnuovo di Porto and Capena. From the house you can enjoy a gorgeous view over the hills of the Roman country side. The weather is cool and airy even in the warmest season.
To reach Rome by train the station Monterotondo-Mentana is about 5 km from the house. Alternatively, you can reach the metro station "Prima Porta" which is about 15 km. By public transport, the city center can be reached in less than 30 minutes. The car in summer, when there is not much traffic, it is faster. In Rome center you can park in white line for free, in the blue line paying 4 euro for 8 hours or choose one of the many private car parks.
In the garden you can park your car.
Our family of 7 really enjoyed almost 2 weeks in Villa Epizephyria in July 2013. The Villa is a gorgeous country house just outside Rome. Just look at the pictures. They don't lie. The bedrooms and living rooms are spacious and beautifully furnished. The AC works as promised, and on top of that: The thick walls keep the house fairly cool all day through even in the middle of summer. The house was clean, the kitchen well equipped (important for people like us who like to cook when we go abroad), bed linen and towels were available. You will need a car as grocery shops not in walking distance.
Giacomo and Laura are great host; friendly, reliable and very helpful. They provided a lot of information before we arrived which made it easy to find the Villa and responded quickly to the few questions we had during our stay. Giacomo was at the house when we arrived and helped us settle in, and Laura turned up as promised when we left. Everything went smoothly.
We highly recommend a stay at Villa Epizephyria, and would like to do so again. And if you do, make sure you have Michela come and cook you a typical Roman meal!
