False advertisment for a rundown property. The owner's wife was very cold, unpleasant, and inhospitable & acted as if were an inconvenience to her. We were promised transport to/from the local grocery which never materialized. We caught a bus to the store and taxi back; when we called for pick up from the supermarket were told the owners had gone... More

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

The booking was for 7 days for a total of 26 guests but I think 23 came. The total price was €uro 3,880 which makes €uro 149 / person per week and not $ 550 / person / week . The price division between the participants was an internal affair to them and some may have paid more than others... More

Bernard and Elanora are the perfect hosts. From the ready made meal on arrival to being shuttled around in their van, there seemed no task they weren't prepared to help us with. As a family travelling with grandparents and small children, we found these extra considerations on their behalf to be invaluable. The house itself is exactly as you would... More

We had the wonderful opportunity to book the East and West Wing in October. What a wonderful and relaxing place to stay. Though the weather was starting to cool and we didn't make use of the pool, or frequent the beautifully landscape property as much as we'd hoped, we found the property to include everything we needed to make our...

I was in Villa Silj with family and friends. This charming house with big beautiful garden is amazing place for rest in silence and is located near the one of the oldest capital cities in Europe - Rome. The house is not modern but it has a spirit of the Italian history. Ideal location for those who want to visit... More

We stayed there a few years ago with our young kids. The interior is very old fashioned and dirty. We had to clean the place for over an hour to make it acceptable but the smell of the mold could not go. Electricity is dangerous and not acceptable for the 21st century. The pool looked nice but then again there... More

Villa Silj is set in beautiful surroundings and is ideal for a relaxing holiday and travel into Rome. However, several shortcomings in provision and standards explain the average rating. Bernard is a very pleasant host who was very helpful on several occasions such as taking me to the shops to get supplies. However, at no point were we treated to... More

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. See the... More

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
