Overview

Le Caselle Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 6

The Villa Alberto, in the village of Pietrafitta, is in the south-east corner of Lazio, close to Abruzzo, Molise and Campania. Tranquil and off the beaten track, it stands in an elevated position in its own grounds of 1 acre, with fruit trees, flowering shrubs and even a banana plant. Villa Alberto has balconies on every side with splendid views of towering mountains, fields and valleys. It has a comfortable sitting room with an open fire, a fully equipped kitchen and table, three spacious double bedrooms, two shower rooms and a bathroom. There is a lovely shady veranda at the front of the house - perfect for alfresco dining or relaxing.

Pietrafitta's shop & cafe are a short walk from the Villa. A few minutes' drive away are several towns with a wide range of facilities.

Rome's airports are under 2 hours away by car & Naples Airport is approx 1.5 hours. Trains are available from Rome to Cassino 20 min away.

As all the guest accommodation is on one level, this villa is comfortable for the infirm. Note, however, that there are ten steps up to the guest floor.

The garden is fenced all round, providing peace of mind for those with small children.

Swimming Pools

There are three pools within a mile or so. We have been to two recently, both excellent.

One at GreenPark Hotel Tullio is immaculately clean, (the hotel is now owned by a pharmacist) has sparkling clear water, a magnificent backdrop of mountains, a shady end for when you want to be in the water, but not in the sun, a retractable awning for all year swimming, good changing rooms, showers and toilets, and a snack bar. As it is next to the hotel, you can pop in there for lunch. It has a large children's pool, 60 cms deep, as well as the main, 25m pool. It is off the main road, on the way to the villa, It charges 10€ per person for the full day 8€ after 2 PM, children under 12 - 8€ per day, 3€ after 2.

The other is called AquaPark. As it is on the main road, it is busier. It has a much bigger area of sun loungers. Its children's pool is slightly deeper and it also has a fun pool with slides, fountains etc.There is a snack bar, but other facilities are not quite so convenient as at GreenPark. Charges are similar but children under 10 are 6€ in the afternoon.

With small children in tow, it may be preferable not to have a pool at your villa. These provide an economical alternative.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a lovely stay in Casa Alberto and thoroughly enjoyed being back in La Ciociaria! Benito was charming and very helpful and the house was perfect for us. The kids especially liked playing hide and seek in the dark in the garden and my mother and I enjoyed picking some of the fruit from the trees.... just like the old days when I was young.

Una villa bellissima, spaziosa e pulita, uguale all'annuncio. I proprietari affidabili al 100% e di una gentilezza unica. Eravamo un gruppo di persone e ci siamo trovati benissimo. Consiglierei a tutti di affittare questa villa. Fabiana

The villa is situated between Rome and Naples, at the foot of the Appenine mountains, in the tranquill Val di Comino. It is away from tourist bustle and is ideal for a relaxing holiday. There is plenty to do in the area and good restaurants and shops nearby. There are two excellent pools a few minutes away.

The Villa is an excellent base for a walking holiday. The Abruzzi National Park is an area of outstanding natural beauty, set high in the Apennines. One of the biggest national parks in Europe, its dramatic landscape includes isolated villages and resorts, beech and pine forests, flower filled alpine meadows, rocky mountain peaks and sparkling lakes. Wildlife includes chamois, eagles, bears and wolves. Visit picturesque Opi, Pescaseroli or Castel del Sangro. Go on a guided walk or get a map from the Park offices and explore it yourself.

Natural wonders include the Pastena caves, with amazing stalagmites, stalactites and colonies of bats, the falls of the river Liri and Lake Fibreno a bird sanctuary with a floating island.

For broad sandy beaches go to Gaeta or Scauri well established family resorts about an hour away. A trip up the coast to the resort of Sperlonga offers the opportunity for a brief stop at Hadrian's seaside villa where wonderful statues, found smashed in the fish ponds, have been pieced together and housed in a small museum.

The Abbey at Monte Cassino was completely rebuilt, just as it was, after destruction during World War II and is one of Italy's oldest shrines. There are also another 6 ancient abbeys and 6 castles in the valley. Caserta with its splendid palace and gardens, Naples, Herculaneum and Pompeii are 1.5 to 2 hours drive away.

Nearby towns include Settefrati, San Donato, Atina, Villa Latina, Picinisco, San Biagio, Casalvieri, Casalattico, Alvito and Vicalvi.

There are 3 airports you can fly into, Rome's main airport, Fiumicino, 194k; Ciampino, 160k; and Naples 126k.

There are train stations at Cassino (main line) 32k & Sora (branch line) 31k.
