Overview

Macchia House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom house, sleeps 11, (2 families), halfway between Rome and Naples

This newly renovated property dates back 400years and is situated in a Medieval Village in the Comino Valley mid way between Rome and Naples. It is a perfect base to explore Italy being just over one hour south of Rome, one hour north of Naples, one hour from the fabulous beaches at Formia and on the very edge of the Abruzzo National Park.. The famous Forte family (Rocco Forte) are from the next village and have built a sports complex with a tennis court, rugby/football pitch and a recently installed astro turf 5 aside football pitch donated by the Italian 2006 world cup winning team.Enjoy fabulous walks and superb cycling around the amazing tiny villages on quiet tracks or roads. This area is nicknamed locally as “Little Ireland” due to local family ties so English is widely spoken in shops and restaurants.The authentic elegant restaurants could not fail to impress the most discerning palette. Being south of Rome prices are very reasonable - one walking distance from the house.

Coast/Beach:

1 hours drive to the beaches of Gaeta, Formia, Scauri. Easy 2 get to. 2 hours 30 mins to the Amalfi coast, Sorento etc.

Skiing:

Ski resort Pescaseroli 45 mins. Abruzzo mountains with cross country skiing and downhill, very easy to drive to on one road.

Travel:

Airports 1 hour 30 mins from Ciampino or Naples. Car is essential as Lesche is a mountain village.

Distances:

20 mins to cassino with the Abbey of Monte Cassino. 15 mins to Posto Fibreno natural lake, San Donato, Alvito. Atina villages within 15 mins, medieval Roman villages.

Water Park : One of the largest in Italy and great fun for all the family just 15mins away by car in Cassino see http://www.picinisco.com/hayway-park.html

The views are spectacular and it is a very peaceful setting. The down stairs and upstairs bedrooms are accessed by outside stairs and therefore not suitable for young children. The furnishings are lovely and modern with a light airy feel. There was however, mould on the ceiling in the ground floor bedroom when we stayed at the property which needs to be addressed. The villa was clean and smart but there was one oversight and that was when arrived the dish washer was full of dirty dishes! There are more positives than negatives with this property and overall, I would recommend it.

Thanks Robert for letting us use your wonderful house on the week leading up to our wedding! What a setting! What a place to seriously get away from it all, take in amazing views and just chill out. It may look old from the outside, but inside is very well decorated, with everything you need to enjoy a relaxing stay. I'd certainly recommend this place to my friends!

Thanks again!
