We generally have a no tv policy, and though there is wireless internet and a key if that doesn't work, sometimes in the country side, nature reigns and the line stops for sometimes an hour or more........ and you end up taking a beautiful walk instead.
Generalmente non forniamo televisione, e nonostante c'è wireless internet, ed una chiavetta, spesso nella campagna , regna la natura e non funzione anche per delle ore, e alla fine, si fa una bella passeggiata .

I am a singer, guardian, gardener, cook and interested in knowing travelers from around the world. The best thing we humans have is to exchange our lives with eachother, in silence or verbally if it be.
leslie poleri purchased this cottage in 1994

I'm sustaining a beautiful spot on the planet, full of Etruscan history and energy. I enjoy being able to share all the products from this land I keep, and show folks that it is possible to eat heathfullly! be well and hope to see you soon.
Suncave gardens is a healing place
When you travel to a foreign place you hope to get a cultural experience. SunCave Cottages provides you that wonderful rural country experience close to Rome. Leslie made us feel like family instantly. We enjoyed a wonderful 5 course dinner with her family and toured the property. The food , truly, was the best we experienced while we were in the region. All handmade Italian country yumminess. The cottages and the property were magical. Being a history buff she shared with us a restored Etruscan cave where she hosts small concerts. My daughter, 17, said it was her favorite part of our 10 day stay in Italy. (Amazing considering all the sites we saw and experienced. ) Leslie is also well connected to the community and can provide you leads, insight and assistance to be a Roman for your stay. It rare when you travel that you are able to have such a personal, amazing experience. This place is a treasure that should not be missed for the food, hospitality, and lodging are wonderful. Leslie speaks multiple languages including English. Put this on your bucket list.. it is a journey to the lake region near Rome so worth taking!
My stay at the cottage was a delight. The cottage was very well equipped and was home as I walked in the door. Tosi made a delicious breakfast with homemade bread, fresh eggs from the chicken coop with fresh fruit and marmalades from the orchard. I participated on harvesting fruit and transforming it into marmalades and took a cooking class and learned how to make Italian pasta. The lake of Bracciano was a 10 min scenic drive through the countryside for swimming. We took a boat tour of the lake visiting Anguillara and Trevignano and drank prosecco on the back of the boat. The highlight of our trip was taking walks through the garden with an array of flowering colors that lined the pathways. We already booked for this coming fall before she is booked up to enjoy another retreat that leaves you spiritually happy. Thank you Tosi for the wonderful hospitality.
It was a great getaway before our flight. Everything was just perfect. Beautiful piece of property. Lot's of TLC taken to provide such a unique setting. Close to airport. Day before our flight , took train to Rome for one last tour. This was exactly as the photo's. Everything was tidy & clean. Tosi our host was very attentive to any of our needs. Enjoyed our time. Would use this rental again! Thanks for the memories
Our stay was for 5 days at this wonderful cottage & we hated to leave at the end!! We would return in a heartbeat!! Recommend renting a car to see the countryside & near by villages, & commuting to the train station to visit Rome. Our host was unbelievably hospitable allowing us to share with her & her family in non-touristic experiences, we completely felt like part of the family. We made new friends & grand memories!!! The cottage was quite clean, well maintained, roomy & comfortable (the photos are pretty accurate). The country views are awesome. Our host was most helpful in every aspect of our stay with personalized attention. There is a beautiful lake nearby, a must..canoeing, castles, quaint villages, etc....we highly recommend this quaint cottage!!!!!
