I live in the 'Castelli Romani' on the outskirts of Rome, Italy. I enjoy travelling, reading, music, good wine and art.
I can't recommend enough staying at Gillian's place!
The location is great for whoever wants to be near Rome; Marino is a really nice town, and it took us about 1/2 hour to reach Rome . Gillian's house was fantastic with a beautiful view over the surroundings hills. And last but not least, Gillian greeted us ever so well. She (and her husband!) is a really sweet person.
Thanks again for that lovely stay Gillian.
Great place and location. House was beautiful, spacious and well equipped. Owners were helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend and would stay again.
We spent 3 days at Gillian house in Marino and can only say great things about the place.
The house is huge,clean and FULLY equipped! nothing is missing. this is not the ordinary rented house you would imagine..but a fully organized home with food, beer and wine, bath equipment, groceries, PC, internet and more...located in a quiet area 2 minutes by car from the center of Marino.
So yes. if you wish to spend a few days in Castelli Romani - This is a great base.
We spent 4 nights in Gillian's house. The house is ideal for anyone looking for a family house away from the noise of the big city. Rome is 20 mins away but the place is well worth the travel. It's a clean house with a cozy garden. We had a car so traveling was easy for us. There are also some restaurants in the neighborhood. A supermarket is also a 5 mins drive away. And for ppl who want to send postcards to their loved ones, the neighborhood also has a post office :)
This house is easily worth the daily train out of Rome and the walk. Having a kitchen and plenty of space was amazing but the view and terrace were an added bonus! Make sure to check out the restaurant down the street.
Gillian is just a great guest -- she was among my first airbnb guests and my experience with her will only encourage me to welcome other guests in the future. I know everything has been treated with respect and it was really nice to have a person like her in my home during a couple of days!
