We chose to stay at Villa Paola e Erika because we didn't want to take our car into Rome. A perfect setting and restful place to come back to after the hustle and bustle of Rome. Once we got acquainted with the 10 minute drive to the station it became a simple process to get into the heart of Rome and all the sights. Our only regret is we didn't have enough time to explore the local sights near the Villa. We will have to come back for that and will want to stay again with Paola and Erika. We can wholeheartedly recommend Paola and Erika, they are wonderful friendly hosts who went out of their way to make us feel at home and welcome.

Great apartment,refreshments on arrival, lovely accommodation, spacious, clean, inviting and above all great location to Rome Airport. Erica too has two gorgeous dogs who greet you on arrival. We really enjoyed our stay and were made to feel very welcome.
Nice place to stay out of Roma. Clean and spacious rooms. Erika and her family make an olive oil the best which I ever tryed. Very friendly owners.
We have stayed at villa Paola e Erika for one week. It is located in the outskirts of Genzano di Rome, in a big olive tree garden. Location is very nice and quiet, with exciting views on Alban hills.
There are three friendly dogs in the house, all of them are very lovely. Our two years old baby liked playing with all of them, especially with shepherd dog named Rocky. Thanks him a lot for his patience!
Erika and her mother are very friendly and hospitable, they helped us for everything we needed. For our convenience, Erika suggested us to stay in a guest house outside the main building of villa, where we had our own dining room, bathroom, and bedroom.
This villa is especially a good choice for travellers with a car. You can go by car either directly to Rome or to the nearest train station and then take a train to Rome. As soon as the villa is located in Alban hills area, do not miss this occasion to visit beautiful small cities around like Castel Gandolfo, Frascati, Nemi.
As soon as we did not have a car you will have to walk about 15-20 minutes to the nearest bus stop, and then take a bus to Rome or other places you would like to visit around. Buses are frequent and not expensive, but it is better to know their schedule (you can ask Erika to help you for this). When Erika was going outside in the morning, she gave us a lift to go the central square of Genzano di Roma or Albano Laziale cities and picked us back same way late in the evening.
Most of the days we preferred to have dinner in Albano Laziale or Genzano di Roma. Compared to Rome, these cities are more quiet and less crowded by tourists, so we felt it is better place to see local life and taste local food.
We hope to come back to Erika with our friends this autumn .
Everything fine, 5/5
