Close to off-the-beaten-track marvels in glorious countryside, yet only an hour from Rome, a big generous house with a private swimming pool

Read guest comments

A short drive from Rome on the ancient Roman road, beyond towering cypresses and pines, is a stately villa built in 1889, surrounded by gardens of lavender and roses. The Lazzè family from Rome have restored it to perfection and now its three floors shine. With living rooms, studies and six bedrooms it's a big generous house for a two-family holiday or a special occasion. Enter to find a lofty beamed sitting room with great big sofas and a sober stone fireplace, a dining room that seats 14, a breakfast room for ten, a cosy study, a large bathroom and a big Italian country kitchen ideal for cookery demonstrations (yes, they hold them). Sweep up the travertine staircase to bedrooms with brick floors, beamed ceilings, fine fabrics and elegant antiques. Bathrooms too are individually styled, with marble basins and stencilled corners, and there's a great cellar for entertainments. Midway between Lakes Vico and Bracciano, the area is the heart of Etruscan civilization, so don't miss the amazing frescoes of Cerveteri and Tarquinia. Come home to a dip in the pool.

Guest feedback
"Set is truly beautiful countryside, this elegant villa is a perfect retreat. It is also near enough to several small towns and lakes. The owners have meticulously restored this former farm house which now boasts all modern comfirts in a traditional setting. It has a lovely pool, which is gated and an immaculate garden. The hosts are solicitous and keen to promote the region's points of interest. "
