Had an amazing time at Stefano's place. He was a great host, meeting us outside the town and leading us to some parking. The town of Artena is truely amazing, where you awake to donkeys picking up the trash down the narrow streets each morning. Its nice to stay in a quiet, authentic Italian town outside of the big city which is also easy to acess Rome. The train to Rome takes about 35mins and only costs 3 Euro, which takes you right into the centre of Rome. Would recommend to stay here.
Even better than it looks in the pictures! Enchanting little village and apartment with big views over the country side. Calm and silent in the twinkling evenings and donkeys clip clopping along the cobbled streets during the days. We loved staying here. You can catch the train into Rome via a bus link and we really didn't mind the extra travel. It was so worth it for the quiet and charm of this very authentic 16th century fortified village. There was a 3 day (night) festival in the area during our stay and we were the only tourists in sight! Rome at this time of year is swarming with tourists so we felt really fortunate to be able to experience a very friendly Italian community and their fine cooking! Stefano is a very helpful and gracious host. He had even prepared a meal for us in anticipation of our arrival as well as leaving a generous supply of local wines to sample. We have no hesitations in recommending this listing.
It was great having Stefano stay with us. He is kind, quiet, and communicative. He is welcome back anytime.
Stefano was a perfect guest, polite, enthousiastic an very clean: allways welcome back, Harm
Friendly, outgoing and very interesting to talk to! It was a pleasure to host Stefano and I would recommend him to any host. He was clean and tidy and asked about suitable places to visit and restaurants etc in the local area.
Stefano has been a great guest, reliable and friendly! I can truly recommend him!
