Truly an Idealic Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Alessandro and his Dolce Casetta are an ideal spot to enjoy all Rome and surroundings have to offer! The cottage is very comfortable, clean and well furnished, so one may cook in the cozy kitchen and eat at home, or you are close to great restaurants in Grottaferrata, or nearby Frascati, or even an evening in Rome! The train station to get to Rome is in Frascati, a mere 15 minute drive, and there is great parking...5 euros for the day, and the train ride is about half an hour into Rome for 8.40 euros roundtrip. But Rome is not all there is to see in the area! Grottaferrata is in the middle of the Castelli Romani....and each and every commune is worth a visit! In addition are such hidden gems as Artena.

Alessandro was a fantastic host....they came and cleaned everyday, and left breakfast goodies. We felt quite spoiled, and were sad to say arrivederci.

Lovely getaway in the roman hill

  • 5 of 5

Me, my wife and our baby (4 yo) stayed at la dolce casetta for a long week-end this april, it had the perfect size for us and was very clean.

The host live next door but in a different structure and he is ready in every moment for everything should you need.

We liked the opportunity to be indipendent not just for open the apt (that's normal) but because the host has given us the remote control of both entry/exit gates.

Other things that we appreciated was the huge garden, the delicious coffee and a very tender black cat that has played so many time with our baby.

Twenty degrees in november

  • 5 of 5

Thinking back about our two weeks trip in italy, the 3 days spent at la dolce casetta are those which keep the best and amusing memories. we had already booked a 2 nights stay but we wished to return for spend the last night before our return in Ireland.

The aspects that were more appreciated are the welcome and the care of the furnishings but certainly the main attraction is the garden with its plants and its huge trees.

We traveled as a couple but doubtless next time we'll bring our kids with us.

Thanks to the host for the nice time and the greatful stay

Feeling at home. Top quality B and B

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two great nights.

This was one of the best B&B I have stayed: the apartment is a good size with large and extremely comfortable bed with good quality linen and it was like being at home. Just the bathroom is not so spacious but equally useful.

The property is in a great location with huge garden, close to the train station and metro station.

Our host was extremely helpful in recommending things to do and places to see.

I would definitely recommend this B&B and hope to go back soon. But what makes this so special is the owner, he's so friendly and make sure you feel really welcome.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We are a couple from Manchester and opted for this apartment because through the map we saw that it was near from our destination airport (Ciampino).

Our choice has been right: the cottage is cosy, clean and well maintained. The owner very nice and helpful.

If you are looking for somewhere cheap and not too far from the city this is you place !!

Our second honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in the morning around 12 am and immediately went to eat at a restaurant near the house. Then after a few hours of sleep we made alessandro explain what to see and what to do. He was very educated and precise in his directions so we began to discover Rome.

The city is amazing as we imagined.

We spent 10 fantastic days in the beauty of the vegetation that surrounds this lovely apartment, decoreted with blue in the bedroom and in orange in the kitchen and outside the house, with so many different kind of flowers, trees and frame to discover.

The last day of stay was so difficult leave that house that felt like our, i can suggest it to everyone.

Thank you alex for everything... Kate & Jeremy
