Rome Luxury Villa with Pool

Bedrooms 6
Half Baths1
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

Villa, 6 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

The fabulous mountaintop location, its close proximity to Villa D'Este and Villa Adriana, the many panoramic Travertine terraces, the 14 x 7 meter swimming pool with a large children’s shallow water area, and exceptional distant views of Rome and surrounding hillside villages are only some of the features that have made Villa Chui a memorable retreat in the Rome area.

This exclusive, gated property is an oasis of privacy and security. Villa Chui is reached via majestic hand-laid stone driveways and is situated amidst hilly walking paths, shade trees, and well-groomed grounds with abundant roses, hydrangeas and wild cyclamens.

The Italian owners recently restored this 6-bedroom villa with great care and it is a perfect combination of modern comfort and excellent taste. They have appointed the interiors to a very high standard filled with interesting furnishings, rare art and objects from around the world. After their stay, guests will long remember the travertine and alabaster sculptures adorning the gardens, pool and home and the many beautiful paintings that give this villa its character. Some other features of Villa Chui are the unique trophy room, the piano hall, and the delightfully warm and relaxing atmosphere of the elegant and spacious living room with its cozy fireplace.

Guests fond of cooking will truly appreciate the main kitchen, which is known for its rustic style and informality, especially when the fireplace offers warmth and ambience . The chef is happy to take requests and will coordinate all of the food shopping as required for your stay. The lovely outdoor dining areas on the terraces are perfect for al fresco meals accompanied by the superb views.

The convenient location of this impressive property, just outside of the charming village of Tivoli, makes Villa Chui a favourite getaway for guests, as it is only a 35-minute drive from Rome. Travelers wishing to explore the Eternal City and its surrounding attractions, while discovering the charms of an Italian home and being without the crowds will find Villa Chui an appealing option.

Villa Chui is also the ideal place for large families, business retreats, as well as for a group of friends seeking a peaceful reprieve away from the bustle of the cities.

After a long day of sightseeing, guests will appreciate the haven of Villa Chui. Guests enjoy sitting on one of the several terraces, drinking a glass of local wine while watching the breathtaking sunsets as they overlook nearby and distant mountain ranges dotted with olive groves, mustard fields and the reflective pool of Villa Adriana. On clear days, they can see St. Peter’s Dome and far off in the distance the Tyrrhenian Sea. A stay at Villa Chui is truly a restorative and memorable experience.

About The Owner

I had the chance to travel all over the world. I was lucky enough to see the most remote corners of the planet - each trip I came home with a little something to remember the places I have visited - I met a lot of people in my journeys and now I enjoy the peaceful life of Monteripoli .

The Owner purchased this villa in 1960

Why The Owner chose Tivoli

This house is where my family and I grew up - It is a fantastic place to be with children and among friends .

What makes this villa unique

The absence of sounds, the bush surrounding the property and the most amazing sunsets overlooking the Roman country side always give me great emotions! The fact that Villa Adriana and Villa d'Este, two of the most visited Italian monuments, are just a few miles away makes it just more attractive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ciao Nicola,

It’s been a year since being in Italy and I’m still longing to return. Life just flashes by so quickly…

I wouldn’t want to bore anyone talking of my day to day activities but more so wanted to reach out to you and your family to say, “Hello.”

One day I will return to the villa, part of my heart lives for the villa. Visiting Italy had such a huge effect on me. When I was on that holiday I brought music along so whenever I listen to that music I smell the crisp cool September air from the villa and I can close my eyes and see Tivoli and Villa Adriana from the vantage point of the balcony.

I love to cook and I’ve found a program on TV which features a chef named David Rocco, in Firenze. I don’t want to sound behind the times but this was a rather new discovery to me but you might be rather familiar with who he is? I really enjoy seeing the program because I get to see all the things that I remember but there is so much yet for me to explore. Again, grazie, to you and your family for opening your doors to me and my family.

Ciao arrivederci

Beautiful Property, highly recommend for families.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Villa Chui. The property is very nice, and the views are incredible. The staff was helpful and gave us our space. I would highly recommend for families that want to have a quieter experience, but within striking distance of Rome.

Perfection in Tivoli

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful property with a stunning view, lovingly cared for by Umberto and Palma. We were taken care of every step of the way. Palma's dinner our first night was a highlight of our trip and the villa was a perfect oasis from the summer heat. The bedrooms and baths were nicely appointed, spacious and spotless and the Villa is decorated beautifully. It was like having our own art museum with the added bonus of a huge kitchen and pool. Loved every minute and Nicola was responsive to all of our needs. Can't wait to go back!!

relax after Touring Italy

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 spent 3 nights at Villa Chui, relaxing before returning home. A perfect choice. The Villa is amazing and peaceful after hectic city tours. Tivoli is beautiful. Our gracious host, Nicola thought of everything and was always in contact, insuring our comfort. Palma and Umberto were the most warm and attentive staff, and driver Michele made sure we saw the best of Tivoli easily. Palma cooked us a wonderful meal on our arrival, and then we cooked for each other from the Villa's well supplied kitchen and the Tivoli market. We left feeling more a part of the Country than just tourists. We wish we stayed longer.

Fantastic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation possible at Villa Chui. Villa Chui is absolutely fantastic! The beautiful, warm and charming home made our stay in Italy just perfect. We will always remember the incredible sunsets over Tivoli from the top of the hill, looking at Rome in the distance. Nicola's family was so welcoming and available for us. They helped us in every way to make our stay what we wanted and needed. We had great dinners, sightseeing (Villa Hadriana, Villa Gregoriana, The Vatican, etc.) which made our discovery of Rome and it's surrounding pleasant, easy and fun. Rome being only at a short distance, it was easy to access and when days were hot, we enjoyed relaxing by the beautiful pool. We would recommand Villa Chui to anyone who wants to have and incredible experience of Italy, it's hospitality, it's wine tresors, it's warm lifestyle and being in a dream location. What an amazing time we had, it will stay in our heart! Thanks to Nicola and his family and.... to the beautiful Villa Chui!

Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures and description do not do it justice. Villa Chui is a warm, inviting, comfortable, spacious, fun, charming family home where memories of their history are present everywhere. From the "trophy room" to the sculptures and from coffee in town with Nicola's father to walking the town -- there is so much to take in. The family's hospitality is over the top -- from the welcome basket to the wine cellar and baked treats from the mother and recommendations for dinner. They help ensure your stay is just perfect. One recommendation -- ditch your car and hire Michele to pick you up at the airport and drive you everywhere (he is amazing!) Our time at Villa Chui and in Tivoli was fantastic!

Amazing! Fantastic! A vacation we will always cherish

  • 5 of 5

. . . and Nicola and his family, Palma and Umberto, and Villa Chui were all very significant reasons why!

Villa Chui is every bit as beautiful as it looks in the pictures on the website, sitting atop a hill overlooking Tivoli, Hadrian’s villa and St Peter’s Basilica in the distance. It provides the perfect combination of proximity to Rome for sightseeing and the opportunity to just relax by the pool when desired.

From our first contact with Nicola via email, through his assistance in planning the trip before our arrival and with his continuous attention during our stay, he could not have been more responsive or accommodating to our every need. Since we had decided not to rent a car(s) for our group of seven, Nicola helped arrange transfers to/from the airport, Tivoli and Rome when needed. Although we didn’t use it, there was also easy access to the train into Rome if desired. In addition, Nicola put us in touch with an excellent local tour guide, who took us on two days of tours of Rome and one day to Florence and wine country – a great way to get the most out of our limited time!

At our request, Nicola organized an informal wine tasting our first night at Villa Chui, together with his father and brother (his mother, who could not be there, made delicious desserts for us to enjoy). Not only was this a great introduction to Italian wines, but to Nicola and his family as well. It was like they were old friends!

Palma and Umberto are special people who not only take care of Villa Chui, but who took special care of our family while we were there. Palma prepared a delicious, ‘traditional Italian meal’ (4 courses!) for our first night, which led to our request for her services at the end of each of our sightseeing days. Each meal was unique, thoroughly enjoyable and the perfect ending to a perfect day!

I could go on, but by now you probably understand that we would highly recommend Villa Chui to anyone looking for a similar experience. While the sights and history of Rome and Tivoli are truly amazing, it was our new friendships and the sharing of this beautiful villa that made this a truly unique and memorable experience for our family.
