The main house is located at the garden level, surrounded by secular olive trees. From an independent and external staircase in the garden, you can access another well appointed apartment at the first floor, which offers a beautiful view of the town of Velletri and the mountain Monte Artemisio in the background. From the windows on the other side of the apartment one can enjoy a magnificent view of the Pontina plain and the sea, with the Circeo promontory in the background.
The apartment has a small living room, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms. Both have a capacity for two but only one is with a double bed. The living room has a fireplace and the structure of the old stone kitchen in the corner making it very charming. The bedrooms are air conditioned and all windows have mosquito nets.
It's a delightful apartment, ideal for a family of four or a couple and two adults. However, it is only available when rented with the main house. Occupancy would be for groups up to a max of ten.
Not too far from Rome, in the countryside, you find Casale tra gli Olivi. The building dates back to 1800s and is constructed in stone. The owner, who is an architect, recently renovated the property and furnished it to a very high standard, highlighting the ancient stone structure and inserting contrasting modern materials, such as glass and steel. Our wish is to make you, the guests, feel at home, welcoming you with the utmost hospitality and offering the wines typical of the Castelli Romani. The atmosphere we want to create is for lovers of ancient things and good wine. On request it is possible to be shown the famous Wine Road of the Castelli Romani with a visit to an old Roman cellar located among the vineyards of Frascati.
The house comprises two floors, completely independent, described in detail in the two units listed. The house can accommodate up to 6 guests on the ground floor and 4 other guests in the other apartment at the first floor.
After a day of visiting Rome or its surroundings, you can enjoy a relaxing moment in the beautiful garden. The architect has created for her guests a relaxing corner between the rose bushes and hazelnut trees with a heated Jacuzzi tub. The climate of the Castelli Romani, in the spring, allows you to stay and have lunch on the patio adjacent to the kitchen, equipped with an old wood stove and barbecue, enjoying the silence and the green of the olive trees.
The house is located 1 kilometre from the town of Velletri, where you can find regular trains to Rome, with journey time of approximately one hour. Guests can easily motor to the Lake of Castel Gandolfo, where there is the summer residence of the Pope; the quaint little village of Nemi; Valmontone with the Leisure Park Rainbow MagicLand. Also there is the A1 motorway access either towards Naples and Pompei in the South, and Tivoli (Villa d'Este and Villa Adriana), and Florence to the North. For those who enjoy the seaside, the closest are Nettuno and Anzio, where in summer you can find the ferry to the Pontina islands, Ponza, Palmarola and Ventotene.

Posto incantevole comodo pulito dotato di tutti i confort (WIFI, SKY TV), piccoli nei da correggere:
1. mancanza di porta spazzatura nei bagni e tappetini;
2. consumo elevato di gas dovuto a poca coibentazione delle grandi finestre non dotate di doppi vetri e con spifferi poste nel meraviglioso soggiorno dotato di grande camino, che sono costate una maggiorazione nei consumi del gas.
Per il resto nulla da eccepire, posto ideale per trascorrere brevi e lunghi soggiorni nei pressi di Roma. Ben collegata con la capitale con treno poco distante e posti costieri come Nettuno Anzio Circeo e isole pontine visibili ad occhio nudo dal appartamentino posto al piano superiore. Servizi raggiungibili facilmente con l'ausilio di un autovettura. Ampio giardino ben curato con ottime arance da spremuta. Nella bella stagione possibilità di utilizzo di vasca idromassaggio esterna. I gentilissimi e disponibili proprietari accettano piccoli animali domestici. La sig.ra Rossella e suo marito sono state persone molto disponibili e accomodanti alle quali rivolgiamo un buon augurio e un grazie per la loro ospitalità in questo "eden".
Ps dimenticavo la sig.ra Rossella ci ha offerto un delizioso panettone artigianale e due ottime bottoglie di spumante Ferrari, ancora grazie!
