About Marina Wallace
I live between London and Rome, and take care of Villa il Cardinale in every detail, enjoying renting it out to our wonderful guests for their holidays, family reunions, or celebrations. I love Rome and am happy to share information on its history and also what it offers now as a tourist city. I am passionate about food and good wine, and am happy to offer cooking lessons. I am also a yoga instructor and will be pleased to offer yoga sessions on request to our guests during their stay.
Why Marina Wallace chose Zona III Marcigliana
This is a unique property, of great style, that will make you feel at home in luxury and will offer you a secluded stay away from the chaos of Rome, but close enough to be able to reach the city in 15 minutes.
What makes this Villa unique
Villa il Cardinale is absolutely unique in its style; we maintain it so that our guests can feel at home; we provide our guests with high quality linen, and all facilities are top class. We enjoy providing catering, meals, and breakfast on demand. We will support our guests with the maximum discretion, so that their vacation is memorable. We will be happy to add any services our guests might need during their stay. We are supported ourselves by extremely capable staff who will provide extra services such as a pizza night, or a party at the villa.

Villa Il Cardinale is located right by a green hill, Bel Poggio, off Via Salaria, North of Rome, exit 9 when driving towards Roma from the motorway or form the airports.
The centre of Rome is only 8 Km away, and the nearest train stations, Settebagni and Saxa Rubra, are only 5 minutes drive. It is possible to park the car by the stations and take the train to the centre of Rome, Piazzale Flaminio, or to one of the main stations in Rome, Stazione Tiburtina. The Villa is situated opposite an excellent restaurant, Ristorante Bel Poggio, that can also cater for our guests at the Villa.
Up the hill there is a lovely walk and a very good pizzeria/ restaurant.
The ring road, the GRA, is very close to the the Villa, making it possible to travel to other sites outside Rome without entering the city and thus avoiding the urban traffic.There is a large shopping centre, Porta di Roma, 10 minuets drive from the Villa. The closest inhabited area is called Settebagni (it takes its name from the Seven Cisterns, Sette Bagni, that used to provide water for the gardens of Villa Il Cardinale in the 1st Century AD!) is 5 minutes drive away, and it has groceries, a pharmacy, a church, a doctor's surgery, an optician, a dentist, a patisserie, a newsagent, a great supermarket, and small shops for all daily necessities.
