Elena, the owner, was very fast to reply to our last-minute booking and always able to provide any suggestions or tips if we needed. We actually were staying somewhere nearby but it none of us felt comfortable in the original place we booked. We searched for a new place and found this amazing gem!
The layout of the house and its furnishings definitely suited our tastes! We were a family of 10 (6 adults and 4 children ages 12, 11, 6, and 3.5). The space was fantastic for all of us, enough room to lounge around. The older two kids loved watching movies in the Movie room downstairs. PlayStation and the Wii were used a few times as well - this house is not lacking in flatscreens!
The kitchen was used every-day - big enough for several of us to prep and cook our lunches and/or dinners. The living room dining table fit us all without problem. Every morning we would sit outside and enjoy our coffee and take-in the wonderful views.
The care-taker was very friendly and accommodating but kept to himself to ensure we had our family time without interruption. But we honestly didn't mind having him around!
The house is well equipped with just about anything/everything you need - even children's toys!
The master-bedroom views, especially at night, are wonderful - it is a shame that is the only room in house that has air-condition but it doesn't get too hot in the higher elevation of Rocca di Papa so it was fine for us. Almost every bedroom had a toilet bath/shower which was very convenient and appreciated by all.
We were sad to leave but looking forward to returning to this villa. Thank you Villa Romita for helping us create a very memorable family trip!
