Still Dreaming of Villa Chui!

We are still dreaming about our family vacation at Villa Chui, even after several months of our departure! The house is fabulous, with incredible views of Rome. The house is immaculately kept and decorated, with very spacious rooms for an entire extended family or group of friends to gather. The home is equipped with all of the modern conveniences (screens for every window!). The home provides incredible views of Rome in the distance, we could even see St. Peter's Basilica on a clear day. The main floor plan flows nicely outside to a very large stone patio that overlooks Rome. We often gathered on this patio to eat our lunch and prosciutto and wine before dinner. The patio also has an amazing view of the sun setting over Rome. Trust me, you will watch the sunset from this patio on your 1st night and you will make sure you are back at Villa Chui every evening before dark to witness this spectacular event. We watched the sunset from this patio every night, that is, when we weren't watching the sunset from the fabulous outdoor lighted pool about 12 steps above the patio. Most of the bedrooms are on the second floor, along with multiple bathrooms that provide much privacy for your group. Villa Chui is located about 5 minutes from a commuter train and in approx. 45 minutes you can be at the steps of ancient Rome. You will definitely look forward to your return to Villa Chui at the end of the day for a dip in the pool and the amazing sunset.
The owners of Villa Chui are the most charming and gracious people that you will ever meet! Nicola made us feel like old friends from the first moment that we met; he showed us around the local area, he took us shopping and we met his parents and sister's family for coffee - he even gave us a night-tour of the area on our last night in Rome - Nicola is a truly delightful and charming host! The owners checked-in on us daily to make sure we had everything we needed, and they provided extremely valuable guidance of the area during our stay. We will remember Nicola and his family with equal fondness of the incredible insights of Rome. We are extremely thankful to them for their hospitality and we look forward to seeing our new Italian friends in the future!
The caretakers on the property were very helpful and they were available to take us into town for groceries or a restaurant or to assist us with local merchants if we needed an interpreter.
If you want to live like Italian royalty, then this is your villa!
