Een prachtig huis op een magnifieke locatie.

  • 5 of 5

July / August 2014

Although it was already our third time at la Farfalla, it was as nice as ever and with many new experiences.

Of course we were happy again with the beautifull house, its magnificent view on the surrounding mountains and Farfa abbey, the scenic area of the Rieti province, the refreshing pool (totally biological with frogs and water lilies) and, last but not least our lovely hosts.

Our daughter and 2,5 year old granddaughter had a great time too!

We will certainly come back in the future.

Weekend alla Farfalletta

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso un piacevolissimo week end alla Farfalletta grazie alla squisita accoglienza e disponibilità di Patrizia, Eddy e Chiara. La Farfalletta è una bellissima countryhouse arredata con gusto, pulitissima, immersa nel verde e con una bella vista dell'Abbazia di Farfa. Nell'abitazione c'è tutto cio' che serve per cucinare, le finestre sono provviste di zanzariere e le camere da letto sono dotate di ventole a soffitto per rinfrescare gli ambienti. Ma il refrigerio migliore si gode immergendosi nell'incredibile laghetto biologico in cui si nuota tra le ninfee e altre piante che mantengono pulite le acque del laghetto e che lasciano la pelle morbidissima quando si esce!

Ci siamo rigenerati in mezzo alla natura e torneremo in questo angolo di paradiso! Simona, Massimo e famiglia Parma

Une nature magnifique et un accueil haut de gamme!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 2 semaines formidable à La Farfalletta, dans cette région préservée des touristes. Nous étions 7 et la maison est très adaptée. Meublée et décorée avec goût la maison est équipée de ventilateur au plafond dans les chambres et de moustiquaires à toutes les fenêtres. Les repas sous le patio permettent une vue magnifique sur les montagnes et sur l'Abbaye de Farfa. Les cigales, les chats, les oliviers, les ânes au loin, on est en pleine nature, au calme. La piscine naturelle laisse la peau douce et ne pique pas les yeux. Plus besoin de lait hydratant. Magique !

En plus de la maison, de la vue et du calme, il y a l'accueil. Eddy et Chiara sont chaleureux, efficaces et disponibles. Le top des hôtes ! Nous avons apprécié de commander pendant le séjour les tomates et courgettes du potager familial (merci Francesco) ; la confiture et le miel de Patrizia. Eddy nous a offert une visite commentée du moulin à huile de l'exploitation et nous avons eu le privilège de goûter à l'huile, pourtant très rare, l'année 2014 ayant été une mauvaise année pour la récolte. Nous avons assisté aux fêtes des villages alentours, au festival de jazz à l'Abbaye, à une randonnée dans les gorges de Farfa et tout cela grâce à Eddy qui nous a concocté le programme de la saison. Rome est à moins d'une heure en voiture, très facile d'accès de la maison. Un seul regret, n'avoir pas eu le temps de voir la cascade incroyable et de goûter la cuisine à domicile de Chiara. Lors d'un séjour spécial une autre fois...

Nous nous sommes sentis accueillis comme des invités par toute cette famille très agréable. Merci à tous.
