Antonio and I love making new friends and sharing our life with our guests! We'll be happy to have you over!
Camilla was wonderfully responsive and helpful, I enjoyed meeting Antonio and Mama all of whom made my stay quite comfortable. For the price, this was a great deal!
Great stay! Camilla was not available, but Franca and Antonio were very hospitable, warm and helpful. The cottage was in a quiet beautiful area. My room was warm, water was hot at all hours and I felt very safe. Comfortable bed, meal prepared by Franca was beyond excellent! I even got to have some of her homemade limoncella! I'd definitely stay here again.
Nonostante abbia passato una sola notte qui sono stata accolta calorosamente da persone squisite. Un vero b&b, come dovrebbe essere! Lo consiglio anche per la comodità, vista l'estrema vicinanza all'aeroporto. Spero di aver l'opportunità di tornare presto, grazie!
My husband and I flew into Fiumicino late and Franca and Antonio where there to pick us up. The cottage at Broken Wheel is very clean, safe, spacious and of course close to the airport. If you have the time do not use it just as a stop over for one night but instead enjoy the area and especially spending time with Camilla, Antonio and Franca, people well worth getting to know. Thank you Camilla, Antonio and Franca you are fantastic hosts and hopefully we will be returning soon.
Very hospitable. we came in very late (~midinight) and they waited up for us and even provided us with coffee & cookies even if we came for only one short night.
if you land in fiumichino and don't want to hop from a plane to a car and start driving we recommend a night (or more) at the broken wheel :-)
Wonderful!Thankyou so much for making my first night in Italy so easy. I did not get to meet Camilla however her mother came to pick me up from the airport and waited for me even though i was delayed by over 1.5hours.Then she organised pizza for me for dinner as i had a long trip from Australia.Her helpfulness was so wonderful as i was so tired and she made it so simple for me.The bed was so comfortable.A perfect starting point..so close to the airport.Thank you so much..
This space is not what we expected, it was so much more!
Antonio, Camilla, and Franca were absolutely FANTASTIC hosts. Our plans were always changing and our hosts just kept changing their plans to take care of us and get us rides to wherever we needed to go.
On our first day, I had sent a message letting them know what time we would arrive but the message didn't go through, Franca and Antonio rushed to the airport to meet us like old friends. Franca brought us to a restaurant later that night for dinner (which was AMAZING!) and the restaurant returned us to Broken Wheel. The following night we did not set a time to be picked up at the train station but Franca again came to our rescue. The following evening we made a plan to be picked up, then changed plans and we still were able to have a ride arranged.
The area feels very safe. On the first day we walked to a nearby excavation sight where they were uncovering ruins. On the last evening we made the short walk into Fiumicino after dark to find some food and felt perfectly safe.
In short, you can not go wrong staying with this wonderful and caring family!
The Broken Wheel Cottage is just a few minutes far from Leonardo Da Vinci airport and it's very comfortable for a short stay (as we did) but you can also enjoy this beautiful Italian countryside for vacations. Camilla and her family are very friendly and hospitable people, they love animals. At the arrival a few yummy dog treats were waiting for our doggie ) We were provided with transfer from and to the airport that was very convenient and we've tasted very delicious Italian dishes that Camilla cooked with her mother.
Thank you for everything , Camilla!!!
This was my second time staying at the Broken Wheel cottage. I recommend it without hesitation. Camilla, Antonio and Franka are always super helpful and good to chat with. The cottage is clean and quiet.
Another cool thing is that for a reasonable price, you can order some of Franka's delicious homemade cooking! Buonissimo!
Great place, comfortable. Convenient shuttle service to the airport, day or night, for a modest fee. Convenient pick up from the airport. If you are a dog lover, it is fun meeting there dogs. If you aren't, they wouldn't bother you. Enjoyed seeing their horses. We were just there as we were flying out early, but I could imagine staying longer and going on a horse ride or having a home cooked meal at a reasonable price from Camilla's mother. Camilla's mother, Franca, was very welcoming when she picked us up and dropped us off.
