Colfiorito Farm is situated a few kilometers from Rome, in the municipality of Castel Madama, at the exact place where stood two thousand years ago a Roman villa.

The town was in fact well known to the ancient Romans, who have left numerous traces as the Claudian aqueduct and the villa of Horace.

The area which surrounds the estate is that of Tiburtine Mountains begins just past Tivoli and opens in the valley Empolitana an ancient landscape, still uncontaminated by the proximity to Rome, and from where the people have always devoted to the cultivation of olives, to viticulture and sheep.

Colfiorito Farm is today a modern agricultural concern that is continuing this age-old tradition.

The houses, no longer needed to run the company, have been partially restored to offer accommodation to visitors in a serene atmosphere.

In past centuries the ancient village of Tenuta Colfiorito was part of a vast landed property whose principal part, specializing in olive growing and viticulture, which was the heart, he was detached to be conducted independently.

It stretches for more than thirty hectares by following the sloping hillside covered by vineyards and olive trees 5000 trees whose shapes tormented bear the sign of the passage of time.

The estate, in addition to the main village, includes other buildings, once used to farm families; the old mill, now of purely historical value, still the millstone of the time and other signs of past times. The extension allows the estate to spend time in it so peaceful and relaxing.

Alternatively, the surroundings offer many pleasant routes: the Lucretili Mountains National Park and the National Park of Abruzzo, the medieval village of San Gregorio in Bailer and the surrounding area. Main goal remains Tivoli where in addition to Villa Adriana, memorable testimony of ancient Rome and currently summer cultural center, is now open to the public the nineteenth century Villa Gregoriana whose paths are developed near the waterfalls Aniene. Just restored is the beautiful park of the other century villa at Tivoli, the Villa d'Este with its fountains.

Last but not least, the magnificent temple of Hercules in Tivoli key junction of trade in ancient Rome.

Great Family Retreat within an hour of Rome

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from our stay at this beautiful working olive farm. Plenty of space for my two boys, 6 and 2, to run around and play. The owners/staff were very welcoming and helpful. We stayed in the "Rosa" which had 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a very large living area which was more than enough room for my family of 4. The whole property is beautifully maintained.

It is 45 minutes to the park and ride to catch the train into Rome, but it is worth it to get out of the frenzy after a day of touring.

The nearby town is cute and quaint and we ate at the local restaurant, got take out pizza, stocked up the kitchen at the grocery store.

The only negative I would say is that it really isn't a "bed and breakfast" as there was only some milk, juice, and yogurt in the fridge and some crackers.

I would recommend this property to anyone looking in the area! The owners were very helpful in giving good places to eat in the area and the best places to park and ride into Rome. We even brought back olive oil for our friends and family.

Vacances reposantes dans un cadre charmant

  • 4 of 5

Très belle propriété, au calme, avec piscine et logement très agréables qui font oublier le manque d'équipement pour cuisiner. À recommander pour des vacances tranquilles en famille, aux portes de Tivoli et de ces Villas.
