Lovely villa***** Peaceful and relaxing holiday.
Our family, with four children aged twelve and up, rented the villa in Castelnuovo di Farfa for two weeks at the end of August. We found the Villa to be very peaceful with around a 15 minute walk from the town main street. Although a little hard to find when we first arrived (it didn’t even appear as a road on the Sat-Nav), this turned out to be a plus point as the villa is secluded, private and has very little passing traffic. Set on large grounds on a hillside with breathtaking views, beautiful gardens with olive trees providing additional privacy to the villa and pool from the very few neighbours, we felt at one with nature. The pool and surroundings are well equipped and we spent many idyllic, happy hours relaxing in the sun.
The villa itself is wonderful, spacious, clean, comfortable and furnished to a high standard. It is fitted out with almost everything we needed, including air conditioning, fly-nets, Sky TV and plenty of bathrooms. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and had arranged someone very kind to meet us upon arrival and to assist with any minor issues that arose. The villa is about one hour drive from Rome, and 10-15 minutes from a good size supermarket.
In the local area we especially enjoyed visiting the Abbey of Farfa and paddling in the river at Granica. We found the olive museum in the village to be bizarre, quirky and overpriced. Besides spending days exploring Rome we took longer day trips to the beautiful setting of Tivoli and to the picturesque blue lake of Turano.
We created many fond memories and hope to be able to return one day.
