The house is fully equipped (dishwasher & washing machine), Sermoneta is a wonderful 12th century mountain village very close to Rome (only 30 minutes drive or 45 minute train).
The apartment is very comfortable with beautiful views. There is a short uphill walk to the most quaint and mid evil village. We discovered some exceptional restaurants up the hill and some adorable little stores around every corner. The host, Marco, is a very warm and charming man who knows everything about the area. The rental is situated in the center of Sermoneta, it's ideal for a traveler who doesn't want to stay in the heart of Rome.
We would definitely like to stay here next time we visit Rome!
This apartment was very nice. It is new and was very clean. The sheets are a bit rough, but beds were comfortable. It was a bit hot so we were happy to have air conditioning although you have to leave the bedroom doors open as there is just one unit in the living room. We never went to the pool because we were so busy exploring this charming town and surroundings. We were disappointed that the Ninfa Gardens is only open a few days a month and the tours of the castle is only in Italian. However, Sermoneta was the perfect place to have a few days before we embarked on a cruise. The town is built on a mountain so there are a lot of steps going up and down. There are good restaurants and beautiful views. We managed to walk every street in the 3 days we spent in Sermonetta. Marco was friendly and helpful. We had the privilege of meeting Marco's father who lives upstairs. He showed us the before and after renovation photos of their property which we found very interesting. We would stay here again and recommend it to friends.
