Overview

Frascati Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4+ Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths (Sleeps 10)

Over the past 20 years, travelers have enjoyed a unique vacation experience staying in our lovingly maintained 18th Century villa and ancestral home, Casale Sonnino. The Villa is built upon 2000 year old foundations and set amidst thirty acres of working vineyards and olive groves, 40 minutes from the heart of Rome. Featured in 'Gourmet Magazine' and 'The Boston Globe', in articles written by enchanted guests, the Casale Sonnino has been called 'home' by families, groups of friends and fine artists with their paint brushes. Many return year after year to enjoy the small town Italian hospitality, excellent local restaurants and authentic country living, yet be close to all that Rome has to offer.

Indeed, the Casale Sonnino is your perfect home base for exploring the beautiful hill towns of the Castelli Romani, touring the central Italian countryside from Florence to the Amalfi Coast and, of course, basking in the art, antiquities, history and the thriving 'dolce vita' that is Rome.

More About the Property: The Coliseum, the Roman Forum, the Vatican Basilica and Museum, Piazza Navona, the Borghese Gallery with the famed Bernini Statues, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain and, of course, designer shopping near the Piazza di Spagna are less than 1 hour away. When you sip your wine or espresso on the Casale’s terrace at sunset, the whole city sparkles before you.

Our guests have often commented that the Casale is a 'timeless place'. After a busy day of touring, you can rest comfortably surrounded by antiques as well as the modern day amenities of home. You can prepare your own meals in the fully stocked kitchen or have your dinner catered by our own local chef. Most of our guests prefer dining out at one of the many local restaurants - we'll tell you about our favorites when you arrive.

For families with children, the Casale is a 'place out of time'. Guests of all ages can pick figs, grapes and berries, explore the maze of caves from the 12th Century buried below the vineyards, visit world class museums and learn about history layer by layer. When staying at the Casale,you can leave the high-tech video whirlwind behind and slow the pace down. At night, you can play ping pong, foosball, cards or read a good book. When blissful sleep washes over, you can dream about the interesting places you have seen and the adventures that filled your days.

The Casale Sonnino sleeps up to ten, six to eight persons most comfortably, in five bedrooms and three full baths.

Housekeeping, daily breakfast, laundry service (surcharge for large groups), utilities and wifi are included in the weekly rate. Tour guide and cook service are available upon request. Heat is extra based upon consumption.

Over the past 30 years, we have hosted hundreds of artists, groups of friends and families who come to relax, paint, tour the countryside and hear stories about the Casale, the land and its owners through the last 2000 years. When you come into our home, you are sure to experience a special camaraderie and an unforgettable sojourn in 'La Bella Italia'.

Impeccable villa, magnificent setting, superb host

  • 5 of 5
This past October, we were traveling with friends who wanted a more unique experience than the typical upscale hotel, so looking for a bit of an adventure, we jumped in!

The Casale Sonnino was the single most important factor in making the our trip to Rome a success. It's a mansion-like villa that sits in the middle of an active vineyard and olive grove. The setting is inspiring, bucolic, and secure. The Casale itself rests on a foundation that is 2000 years old in parts, but the house is fully modern, spacious and absolutely immaculate. It's a quick trip by train or car into Rome, and a terrific base for exploring the best parts of Italy, namely the historic sites, small towns and vineyards within two hours of Rome.

George, the owner, is a wonderful host. He was born, raised, and educated in the US, so he speaks perfect English as well as Italian. He is friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable, but never hovers. He frets over every detail, and has a professional staff. We literally couldn't wait to wake up each morning after a good night's sleep in comfortable beds to the waiting breakfast spread overlooking ancient Roman hills.

After a long day of sightseeing, we had this beautiful villa to ourselves, including a full kitchen, dining room, and living rooms. These evenings were our favorite part of the trip: we relaxed, ate, drank, talked, surfed the net, and watched a little TV in this incredible mansion.

We all agree that the Casale was an excellent value. We got 4-star service, plenty of space and comfort in a place that we could really call home.

Casale Sonnino was beyond our expectations.

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of 10. The Casale was clean, the staff excellent, the location great. Rome train station 5 minutes away.
The southern coast was two hours away(Sperlongo and Sabaudia)beautiful beaches. We also went to Lake Albano 20
minut es away and many little villages close by. The Casale was beautifully appointed, the gardens and vineyards were so nice to wake up to in the morning, along with the bountiful breakfasts we were served everyday. I would highly recommend this Villa for anyone looking to take an Italy trip. We were 8 adults and 2 children and it was perfect in everyway.

A hidden gem

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I are experienced travelers. We have used hotels for our base, while touring areas within the vicinity. We thought it was a convenient and easy approach to vacation in a foreign country. Then we heard about Casale Sonnino from Claire the owner of this gorgeous gem.
The difference was like night and day. First this is a Villa, not a hotel room. There were 5 rooms down stairs(kitchen, dinning room,living room, den and tv room) and at least 5 bed rooms. We were greeted by George ( Claire's brother )who runs the day to day operation at the Villa, and taken to our rooms.
Then treated to a beautiful lunch and history of the Villa. George couldn't have been more accommodating. He explained the train service and towns that were in driving distance of our home away from home. Because that is how we all felt at home.
Each morning we awoke to the smell of fresh coffee and breakfast made by the young women at the Villa. Cleaning and laundry service were also done by the same women.
After a long day of site seeing it was a pleasure to come home to Casale Sonnino and relax around the fire with a glass of wine or cup of coffee and talk about what we saw or what to due the next day. George also took us for a tour of the tunnels under the Villa. The history was very interesting.
This is truly a gem that should not be overlooked if you plan on going to Rome. The hospitality and friendly staff make you feel like it's your home and they are there just to help. Not one of us wanted to leave.

The best way to enjoy your vacation ( a gem )

  • 5 of 5
This review is to correct the rating of this Vila. The previous review # 237093 list this property at 3 out of 5. It should have said 5 out of 5 . I have notified home away about this and for some reason the posting didn't change.
I am sorry for this mistake and have spoken to the owner of the Vila to accept my apology. I have asked home away again to correct this mistake and have posted this message to let other travelers know how great this gem is

Warm, family-friendly hospitality.

  • 4 of 5
The family and housekeepers are generous with their time and support. The vineyards and groves are an ideal place for children to run and play, and the outdoor table perfect for adults to sip wine. The women who make breakfast can cook dinner, upon request, which we recommend. The location makes day trips to many wonderful places easy. Definitely rent a car as the trains are tricky. Beautiful home, views and people!

A Christmas and New Year's for the ages!

A Christmas and New Year's for the ages!
  • 5 of 5
Casale Sonnino is one of the many treasures to which we were treated during a marvelous Christmas week in Rome. We were greated with a festive decorations and a wonderful breakfast upon our arrival and the delicious breakfasts continued throughout our stay. The women who prepared the meals, made the beds, and tidied our rooms each day were warm, delighful and helpful. George is the second treasure - he provided useful information about where and when to visit various places, and was always available to assist. We had Christmas Eve dinner at home and he made sure it was a memorable feast. Frascati, the nearby town is a wonderful place to shop, eat and walk around. We loved spending afternoons there and had some of our best meals there at Pinnochio. New Year's Eve can't be described. Another memorable feast, and the view of Rome from the Casale is unbelievable. At midnight the whole city lit up with fireworks and the floating candles from Frascati made it like a fairytale! My 9 year-old daughter and 11 and 13 year-old nieces were in awe of the spectacle. My sister and I had visited Rome with our parents 30 + years ago and had Mont Blanc for dessert and never forgot it. When we came down from the terrace overlooking the city, George had had a spectacular Mont Blanc made for dessert. It is an easy trip into Rome, though over the holidays, train service is spotty, so we drove in for the most part and had no trouble getting into Rome, or parking there. Highly recommended!
