VIlla Silj is perfect;y located on the outskirts of Rome, yet convenient to the Metro. When the crowded streets of Rome became too oppressive, it was comforting to know that our cozy was waiting back at the Villa. The owners are extremely accomodating and helpful, with regular gatherings in the evening. The Storygadenz project, mentioned by others, brings an interesting... More

Staying at Villa Silj opens a doorway to Italian historical life and Rome. It is a wonderful place to relax and experience a peaceful country environment as you ponder and rest from what you have seen in the flurry and push of Rome. Villa Silj is home to the Storygardenz Project. A very special offering and cultural resource that guides... More

We were a group who hired all 4 buildings. The very big plus is to come home from busy Rome to very peaceful surroundings. The accommadation has its niggles but if you ask the owners they would sort them out. Some beds are very comfortable. Some of the group hired cars but we travelled mostly by public transport.

Our recent trip to Villa Silj was amazing. We were welcomed as if we were old friends and the owners did everything to make our stay comfortable and inviting. The villa was what I had expected an authentic Italian home would be. It did not disappoint. The owners are what make this villa truly remarkable. Their caring and accommodating nature... More

If you want an Italian Villa experience while still being close to Rome, this is a good value! I cannot say enough about the service provided by the owners - it was as if they had invited us into their home. They made every arrangement that we could have imagined, and absolutely went above and beyond our expectations. The villa... More

A great italian experience. My wife and our two children spent four weeks staying with Bernard and his charming wife at their villa outside of Rome. We were looking for a different experience to the usual tourist thing and Villa Slij delivered. Its a great spot in a semi rural location within easy reach of a train station and bus,... More

We and our extended family rented the East and West wing. From our arrival we were never contacted by the owners unless they wanted money for our "service charges". On the first week (in the East Wing) we were given a small towel each and never had our sheets replaced for a week. We ended up handwashing our sheets as... More

Visited for 11 days, staying in the west wing for 7 days but due to late booking had to split our party of 8 up for the last 4 days into the east wing and the bungalow. The west wing doesnt have 4 bedrooms but 3 plus a sofa bed in the living room plus there is only outside seating... More

We, an extended family of 9 people, including 5 children whose ages range from 15 down to 7, have just spent ten days at Villa Silj, and enjoyed every minute. We were housed in the two cottages on the property, very comfortably and found self catering to be easy and convenient. Eleanora very kindly took us to the supermarket on... More

We were looking for a base outside Rome from which we could travel in-and-out of the city easily but get away and relax around a pool if we wanted to. There are a few very good options around the city, but Villa Silj suited our requirements best (5 people in 3 rooms, fully equipped with a pool). We were placed... More

Bernard A, Owner at Villa Silj, responded to this review

The guests asked us if they could gain access to the premises early because of an early arrival.. Although check in is at 4 PM we obliged and let them in between noon to 1 PM. Early check in prevents us from doing a proper check of the premises. I also told them that we needed to do maintenance of... More
