A quiet, unique, inspiring tower-house, ideal for those who need time for themselves, artists, writers, walkers etc... Kind of retreat: yoga room available to those who book the whole house. Panoramic and inspiring views of the valley.
The house - a picturesque tower is in the historical centre of the town of Monte Compatri, one of the renowned Alban Hill Towns (Castelli Romani), about 30 Km to the centre of Rome and 18 to the outskirts.
There are two rooms you can rent: one cozy attic room with double French bed futon, one small single room with private bathroom and wardrobe space (30 euro for night). You can also rent the double sofa bed in the beautiful lounge, an open space in the house. You will have to share the house with the owner if you don't rent the whole house. In this latter case, instead, you will be alone. There is free use of the large kitchen with large wood table, double kitchen sink and attached small terrace. There are 2 bathrooms, one with bath and one with shower and a yoga studio. You will use the bathroom that you host will tell you to when arriving. Two of the three rooms have a breathtaking view on the valley, where you can enjoy the beautiful light of sunrise and sunset. It is also possible to book yoga lessons with your host, who is a qualified, experienced teacher just for you!
Clean towels and sheets are provided for free. You need to be independent for trasport and self-catering.
The place is ideal for those who wish to experience the green heart of Castelli Romani, the tranquillity of this area as well as being not far from the Eternal City. There are many attractions in Castelli Romani: you can enjoy walks and easy hikes in Monte Salmone, just 15 minutes' walk from the house, or to visit Tuscolo Hill, with its Roman amphitheatre. The town of Frascati, with its Reinassance villas, is only 6 Km away. The town of Palestrina, 15 minutes' drive, with its Fortune Goddess temple, is also worth visiting. You can easily explore other charming sites like Castelgandolfo and Nemi villages and their lakes and forests. In the several local "trattorie" and cantine of Monte Compatri, you can enjoy healthy local food, pizza and wine.
Whatever your style of travelling is - you will find this an ideal location and house: perfect for solo travelleres, artists, writers, who might be inspired by the beauty and good energy in the house, couples, friends or family who love nature and culture.
And... if you like shopping, you can get excellent bargains in the near shopping outlet of Valmontone with many brand names, reachable by a 30 minutes' drive.
Kitchen and bathroom. If you pay for the whole house, also the lounge and yoga room.
You need to be independent, but I'm happy to chat when I'm around. If you need trasport from/to the station of Colle Mattia I can pick u up for 5 euro. If you need trasport from Ciampino airport: 30 euro; from Fiumicino: 50 euro.
If you rent a room and the owner is there, there will also be a cat (clean and discreet). If you rent the whole house... the pet will be away of course! :-)
My name is Chiara, I was born in the beautiful city of Rome and in 2008 I moved to the hills around the Eternal City, the renowned Castelli Romani (Alban Hills).
English teacher as a profession and yoga teacher as a passion ( I've practiced for over twenty years). I also love travelling, writing, arts, hiking and good vegetarian food. I value the importance of sharing in harmony and respect.
I'm looking forward to welcome you in my house here!
