We stayed for around 2 weeks. We loved it, and would recommend it very highly for certain types of travelers, especially families or people who are staying a while and are not in a hurry to see everything in Rome in 3 days. There's a lot going on here, so this will be a long review. I want to associate... More

We stayed here end of September. It is a perfect place if you want to combine your visits to Rome with some leisure-time in the garden (nice little pool!) The accomodation had a country-like charm: no design, nothing fancy, but everything you'll need is there. Including fast wifi! If you have a car you can simply drive to a nearbij... More

We were only 10km from Rome, so could commute very easily to see the attractions in the centre, then get back to this blissfully quiet place, where hardly any traffic sounds can be heard. It feels like the real countryside, yet unbelievable so close to a big metropolis. The garden is beautiful, and Bernard, it`s owner was happy to give... More

It was an honour to stay Villa Silj, Rome and our hosts were incredibly accommodating. Like the great city, the villa, the land and the family have a fascinating history. The site is kept to a high standard and your hosts will really look after you.

One of the owners, Bernard, openly insulted all Americans in front of my American travel companion. There is a gate to the property which you need a key to get in and out of. They only gave us one key for my group of 7, which made solo/ pair trips very difficult. There was no AC so it was extremely... More

I am sorry Katherine thought I insulted the Americans and our family is partly American, having settled in Texas in the 19th century. I have not consciously insulted anyone since my school days ! We shared some typically Irish repartee on the second evening (we both also share Irish roots as well) and maybe somehting I said was misunderstood. I... More

There is one magical garden on the entry gate (Prima Porta) to Rome: the resplendent Silj estate, which offers a tranquil refuge from the city buzz and the usual post-card experience. When we arrived we were greeted by a male version of Dante’s Beatrice, a guide who beats all other guides. The host’s conception of an ideal holiday – and... More

What a charming and welcoming place and extraordinary owners. Bernard and Eleonore are such lovely persons who make you feel at home. During our stay - the sixteen of us - they did everything possible to make it happy, confortable and nice. Bernard's " Story telling gardens" idea is a great one and at twenty minutes from Rome you can... More

This amazing property lies a short train ride from Rome, and then a few minutes by bus. You are then entering an inspiring, tranquil and serene property - with a main house coupled with several smaller, independent houses where you can be by yourself/yourselves. The garden is amazing. You can do your own cooking, and will be assisted with shopping... More

We arrived after a 20 minute drive through Italian countryside to a beautifully gated and charmingly picturesque turn of the century villa at the top of a winding driveway. We were warmly welcomed by the proprietors and offered beverages and snacks, which were welcomed after a long flight. - After being offered several rooms, we chose one in the main... More

We stayed with Bernard for 6 nights in March while the 16 of us enjoyed the sites of Rome. The main house and Farina Cottage were pleasant. It was great to chat with Bernard about all the history around the area. Wish we could have seen some of the things he talked about. We requested the kitchen be stocked with... More
