The apartments of the „Tenuta Capizucchi“
The agritourism “Tenuta Capizucchi” is situated in the heart of idyllic nature near the archaeological parks of the “Via Appia Antica” and approx. 30 minutes away from the historic center of Rome.
This country estate in the south of Rome was redesigned in 2013 and now houses four comfortable, affectionately restored gallery apartments with separate sleeping rooms. All apartments have an open-plan living area bathed in light from where you can reach the gallery and further rooms. The private garden can be reached through an access door. Especially families, garden enthusiasts or pet owners appreciate this self-contained green space. This is where they enjoy breakfast in the shadow, a bath in the sun or a barbecue in the evening. Especially after dinner the quiet location of the Tenuta close to nature invites to a leisurely stroll. After eventful days and away from the urban hustle and bustle, this place helps you to recharge your batteries. High-quality floors made of terracotta and parquet as well as the open-hearth fireplace bring out the luxurious ambiance of well-being.
Further equipment features include: Wireless LAN, satellite TV, air-conditioning system, dish-washer, barbecue, garden furniture and swimming pool. In particular during the hot summers in Rome the swimming pool located at close distance to the resort offers a welcome refreshment to all guests (opening time: beginning of May till the October - depending to the wheather conditions).
Shopping and eating
Since the small village Falcognana is not far away, you can go shopping by bike or also on foot. Apart from fresh bakery products, you will find there everything you need for daily self-catering as well as a pharmacy and a petrol station. The small restaurants located there, the pizzeria and the bar ���Caffe Stella” having its own quite special Roman charm invite you to go on a culinary journey of discovery.
Location and sights
The location of ��Tenuta Capizucchi” in the south of the city is not only ideal for excursions to the known sights of Rome, but especially also for trips to the long sandy beaches of Ostia and the excavation sites of Rome’s original and antique port city - “Ostia Antica”. Furthermore, the pope’s residence “Castel Gandolfo” at the Lake Albano can be reached in 15 minutes.
Owing to the good connection via the Via Ardeatina and Rome’s highway loop, the “Grande Raccordo Anulare (G.R.A.)”, the Tenuta also constitutes a perfect starting point for your explorations in and around Rome. The center of Rome can be reached by car within 30 minutes. People leaving their cars on the parking ground of the Tenuta or arriving without a car are optimally connected to the public transport network via the bus numbers 044 and 702 that can be easily reached on foot from the Tenuta Capizucchi. These buses run every thirty minutes and arrive at the metro station “Laurentina” after 20 minutes.
If needed, a low-cost transfer service that connects the Tenuta with the airports Ciampino (20 minutes) and Fiumicino (25 minutes) or with the city center is available for our arriving and departing guests. The transfer service can also be used for trips to excursion destinations.
The property is an oasis of tranquility in the countryside close to Rome and provided a wonderful location for our holiday.
From the moment you turn off the road up the tree lined drive, then drive over the gravel road to the property, the beauty of the location is apparent.
The owners were great in contacting you, providing directions and answering any questions. The questions were answered quickly and in detail (even providing a map and address in response to questions). On site the owners contact was great, unobtrusive, but able to help and accommodate anything you needed.
The property, which is one of about 4 in a recently converted property, retained a great deal of privacy. It was as promised in the description. It was very clean on arrival.
The furnishings were as in the photos. Ideal for what we were needing. Both bedrooms had en suite toilets, both were very well equipped. The water pressure from the showers was very good. The bedrooms both have good space for storage and hanging clothes etc.
The balcony area over the living room was fantastic.
The flooring retained the charm of the property with tiles downstairs and lovely wooden flooring upstairs.
The sofa bed in the living room was comfortable.
The property was a very tasteful mix of old and new, the wooden beams, against fresh white walls with good modern lights and a lovely airy feeling from the light from the windows, and some beautiful views of the Roman countryside. The air conditioning was much required and worked exceptionally well through the property, one unit in the living room/kitchen and one in the upstairs bedroom.
There was parking on site a few meters from the property and the pool was only a few steps fro the property. Although a shared pool, it was never busy nor noisy during our stay.
The accommodation was exactly what we had hoped it to be and were seeking. The owners and staff were great. We had a great holiday, some very happy memories and look forward to returning to the property in the future as a base outside of the city of Rome to visit the local area, which remains close to peace but only a short drive from the airport.
Appartement agréable, propre et bien pensé dans un coin de campagne romaine au calme. Seul inconvénient si on est en voiture: les routes saturées à certaines heures pour rejoindre le centre de Rome.
