Disappointing

  • 2 of 5
The property is not well maintained. It was dusty and dirty in most spaces. The kitchen is old and very dated. The stove had a broken burner that was fixed while we were staying there. There was dirt on the walls. There were supposed to be 4 bedrooms but one was locked. The king bed is actually two beds pushed together and they are old and hard. The housekeeper who is responsible for welcoming you cannot speak English. The grass was not cut so the soccer field could not be used. The tile around the pool is in need of repair. Not worth the premium price we paid. This property could be beautiful with some work.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry to see that people who live in the United States are not able to appreciate the uniquenes of environments and atmospheres that can be found in Italy, in an old restored farmhouse.
The standard of these kind of properties, is of course different from American houses. But to have that kind of structure and efficiency, one should choose a different location.
The kitchen has furniture made of cedar wood and the ceiling is made with antique beams wood restored.
Tenants who left on the same day of the arrival of American people, have reported that one stove was not working properly: we had it repaired immediately: for us is an 'added value, not a defect.
The grass was not mowed because it rained, the tractor mower can not 'cut the grass til it dries out a bit. The football pitch was not perfect but it does not claim to be a professional field
The locked room was an inexplicable mistake, it' s never happened and will not happen again; however I have been in contact via email with the tenant during his stay: why he did not inform me? I would have had it opened immediately.
The person who is in charge to welcome the tenants, speaks enough English for the check in; for everything else, the person to contact is the owner, who speaks English.
Very serious matter: the tenants lost the keys of the main entrance of the villa and the key of the automatic gate, that gives access to the property.
I have to change locks and keys of the front door and of the gate!
Surely I have not received a premuim payment but rather an excessive criticism of the property.

Brilliant outdoor but some things to note

  • 4 of 5
Overall very good... Wonderful spacious grounds. Football pitch fantastic for kids of all ages. Great big pool. There is a truly sumptuous smell of honeyblossom all around.10/10 for exterior space.

- The proprietor's agent/handyman is absolutely charming and wonderful but does reside (quietly) on the ground floor with his wife and speaks no English. I absolutely adored him but communication is a challenge. He was extremely helpful when our toilet wouldn't flush and fixed straight away.
- Due to the couple living on site, you will be residing on the 2nd and 3rd floors with high steps, but there is a small lift for your luggage/2 persons. You'll get plenty of exercise travelling to and from the pool!
- The pool is about 12 yards from the front door, obscured by trees so you cannot view the pool or watch the children directly from any window at the villa.
- The trees which obscure the pool drop lots of tacky seeds all over the parking area outside the house, so park back from the front door, near the honeyblossom tree if you don't want to constantly trail gunge through the house. - Lovely lounge area but no cool area of note for breakfast except the dining room/indoors. This seats 8-10 comfortably and you will probably eat all of your meals in this room.
- No wifi.
- TV wasn't working for us (7-14th June 2014), hopefully this will have been fixed when you get there - check!
- Very small kitchen with no air-con or mozzy net at windows.
- The mosquitoes are big(!) so take your creams etc!
- No instructions on anything of note except recycling, e.g.: how to use the keys/gate/buzzer; how to get to local places, how to work the TV; local info such as doctor/dentist/pharmacy etc . It would be easy to put this right, would be far less frustrating if this was all there as a welcome pack or in a folder somewhere.
- Owner, please note: no working cheese grater (plastic one doesn't work); no breakfast bowls, not enough crockery and cutlery to use the dishwasher economically as you need to keep washing up to reuse what's there. Easy things to fix.
- No microwave
- The slightly smaller double room gets more of a breeze through it, as does the bedroom immediately opposite the stairs, for anyone who cannot bear the heat.

Generally definitely charming, peaceful and welcoming. The pool will make it all worth your while. :-).

This list is intended as constructive advice to the owners and future visitors, and not as a criticism, as we enjoyed our time there very much.

Owner's Response: First of all thank you for your review, it’s important to me to know what can be improved.
I am happy that you liked the swimming pool and the football pitch: my family and I enjoyed very much, particular when the kids were small.
I am sorry about things that were bad but I would like to point out a few things:
-I used to live at the villa,we restored it (it was my great grandfather house) in a way that would be more comfortable:for us it would be nicer to live on the first floor,there is more light;the biliard room and the caretaker’s apartment are on the ground floor.
-There is a lift – a little one- inside the villa. You can use it if you don’t want to go up and down on the high steps ( the steps of the staircase are original, ancient; that’s why are high.)
-The are lot of trees in the garden; there is a fence all around the pool but ….yes, you can not watch the children from any window at the house.
- During warm season, it’s nice to have your meals in the terrace, which is equipped with a dining table and a garden parasol to shelter from the sun. But sometimes it could be too hot at noon; it’s better to stay in the indoor dining room.
You can also have lunch and dinner in the big porch on the ground floor or near the pool, both equipped with dining table and the area around the pool, with garden umbrella .
-Wifi:I am sorry if the caretaker did not tell you the password:wifi is working.
-Tv: there have been some big temporals during the week, when it rains a lot, the signal is bad; the housekeeper is able to repair it and he would have fixed it right away, as he did .
-Kitchen is normal size for Italian standard, ( about 12mq) but no air-con , as you knew because is shown on the website.
-Fans are provided in the bedrooms.
-The window on the 2nd floor,(where the bedrooms are) have mozzy net.
-Instructions:as soon as holiday makers book,I send all the informations about the area, the restaurant, hospital, driving instruction, etc.I send them again before their arrival.
But you are right:it’s better to provide a book with information. I’LL DO THAT, thanks for the suggestion.
-It could happen that I don’t get to know that some kitchen tool are broken or do not work
properly:I would suggest to get in touch with me by e-mail or text message:I would have bought a new tool or refunded you,if you had bought it.
This is my job and I love my home:I like that everybody enjoy their stay very much!
Thanks again for your advices Laura Borsari

Absolutely wonderful villa, will be staying again.

  • 5 of 5
my family and myself stayed in this villa in June 2013, for one week and we were not disappointed. Arriving at the airport in Rome, it was an hour and a half's drive to the villa, which was pretty easy to find from the directions we had been given. Upon arrival at the villa, we were greeted by the housekeeper who showed us around and guided us to the local supermarket to get food. The villa itself is wonderful, the rooms spacious and the beds comfortable. There were an ample amount of bathrooms to use between 6 people, all of which were clean. The swimming pool is a big plus, and after our day trip to Rome, which is only 30 minutes by train, it was divine to come back from the hustle and bustle of the city to the refreshing pool and tranquility of the surrounding countryside. The villa provides great amenities locally, and It is so peaceful in the surrounding area, you really can relax and soak up the beautiful Italian sunshine and surroundings. There is not one negative thing about this villa, and my family and I are already talking about going back maybe next year for another holiday. Definitely a hidden gem.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
Seven of us stayed in this beautiful, well-equipped villa over Christmas and New Year. We all agreed that it was the best holiday for many years.
The villa is delightful - rural and old but in lovely condition. The bathrooms were clean, modern and attractive. All the rooms were a good size and it was great to have a separate dining room for meals. There was plenty of space for everyone.
It's easy to get to Rome, 15 minutes in a car to the station and then a 30 minute train journey to the centre of Rome.
The large supermarket is a ten minute drive away.
We highly recommend this villa.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our group of seven family members rented this villa for a 10 days period. It was just wonderful. The location is perfect, close enough for day trips but far enough of the hustle and bustle of traffic to provide privacy, tranquility, relaxation and to mentioned a cool refreshing dip in the pool. Ample space both inside and out for either cooking in or grilling out and all amenities were as described. The beautiful hill town of Palombara is only 10 minutes away and it has good restaurants and a big supermarket which provided us with lots and lots of wine. I would strongly racommend "La Tana del Lupo" great food and fantastic prices. All in all a perfect vacation. Thank you for your hospitality.

Best of the countryside-easy access to Rome

  • 5 of 5
Spacious villa with TWO living rooms, large dining room, well appointed kitchen. Outdoor spaces galore. Clean, well maintained inside and out. Beautiful quiet countryside with great vistas. I should say that the birds sing all day--if you consider this "noise", I guess it is not so quiet.
A car is a must but that gives access to several nearby restaurants and the markets in Palombara. For us one of the pluses was the short train ride to Rome. Just park your vehicle at the station and you are off. Because the train is used by commuters, the weekday schedule is very frequent. The weekend is workable, if you know what the times are. Public transport in Rome is great and preetty user friendly. Imagine leaving the busstle of Rome and coming home to this beautiful villa to relax.......
Our family, 7 of us, had a wonderful time. We felt very much at home. The care taker was available when we needed something but that was just at first arrival. After that, the place was ours. Of all the vacation places we have rented, this is deffinitely one of the top.
