About the property

Castel Gandolfo is known for the presence of the summer residence of the Popes. The Holy Father was a guest from July to September.

The many other summer residences, villas and bungalows built in the seventeenth century, Castel Gandolfo make one of the most famous resort in Lazio.

There are also several sites of archaeological interest, including examples are the 'Emissary of Lake Albano and the remains of the Villa of Domitian, as well as natural, since the area is included in the scope of the Regional Park of the Castelli Romani.

Finally, there are interesting sights, such as the Collegiate Church of St. Thomas of Villanova, built by Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

Casa Lucia overlooking the lake of Castel Gandolfo

Great place in the heart of the town.

  • 5 of 5

A real gem of a place to stay in the very heart of the small town. The host was fantastic and you have some great restaurants right on your doorstop. The view from the balcony is exactly like the photo.

We know the area well but for anyone outside I would recommend a car is needed to get around.

We had a very happy few days in this apartment. The view from the large terrace over Lake Albano is sensational. The apartment is very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The family owning the apartment were very kind & helpful & made us feel very welcome. We had a wonderful stay here & strongly recommend Casa Lucia.

Wonderful location, the lake view is breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Castel Gandolfo! The train connection with Rome is great, so a car is not needed. Castel Gandolfo is a friendly, nice place to stay, with enough shops for your groceries. The lake is perfect for swimming, canoeing or water cycling. The owner of the apartment is charming and helpfull and the apartment itself has everything you want for your holidays, most of all a huge terrace with the sensational view of the beautiful lake! Higly recommendable location!

Warm regards,

Henriette, Aone, Jonathan and Rivkah

Traumhafte Altstadtwohnung mit grandioser Terrasse

  • 5 of 5

Wir fanden eine typische Altstadtwohnung, top renoviert mit einer traumhaften Terrasse vor. Die Terrasse liegt in direkter Nähe des besten Aussichtspunktes des Ortes auf den See. Die Wohnung liegt in unmittelbarer Nähe zum zentralen Platz mit Cafe. Wir (2 Erwachsene und 3 Kinder) konnten uns auch ohne Auto mit allen Lebensmitteln aus dem Ort versorgen. Der Vermieter war supernett und hilfsbereit. Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt.

Viele Grüße Ruth und Kurt

Stunning location and very comfortable flat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this flat where we found all we needed. The terrace overlooking the lake is amazing , definitely the best view you can get in town and the location is just few steps from the main square and the main shops . The place exceeded our expectations and we would highly recommend it for a relaxing holiday . Many thanks to Giovanni who was extremely welcoming and kindly picked us and drove us back to the airport.

Car: not necessary

Casa Lucia is situated within walking distance from the Collegiate Church of St. Thomas of Villanova and the main square and can be reached by car, by train, by plane from Ciampino airport located a few kilometers. Overlooking the spectacular terrace with its breathtaking scenery offered by the lake below.

You can order one of the restaurants as eaten by the Roman poet Gioacchino Belli one day in November 1831 on the square in Castel Gandolfo: a plate of spaghetti (or bucatini) all'amatriciana and fried "lattarini" (tasty little fish from the lake), all washed down with wine Doc of local producers.

There are nearby restaurants, taverns and wine shops and taste the typical products of our territory.
