Our stay was a great experience mainly because of our hostess Jennifer. The apartment was tidy and clean and so cosy that you instantly felt at home. The view was spectacular. As it is situated on top of the mountain you need to walk up there from the parking spot a 100 meter below. Only issue is parking, which is... More

We had a great time staying at Altavista. Jennifer was incredibly helpful and generous - she even bought us tickets for a great food and wine festival we visited and enjoyed in a nearby town. Our main reason for visiting Palestrina was to see the Nile Mosaic. Stunning! I could hardly believe this lovely house - in the picturesque old... More

Wow! what can I say. The pictures are exactly what it looks like. No deception there. Its everything you see and more. My 3 daughters and I just returned from a lovely trip to Europe. Palestrina was our first stop. Never having been to Europe we were amateurs at the whole experience. We took a chance and rented a car... More

An surprising finale on our roundtour in central italy . Ampel space for two adult couples , a balcony with a great view, a warm welcome, not only from Jennifer who helped with our luggage , but also from the nearby alimentari and the bar Belvedere. We booked for just two days, but now we know better , this adress... More

Much more beautiful than it seen in the photos...the apartment located in a quiet and peaceful village - Palestrina. (Just a 30 min drive from Tivoli and 50 min from Rome) The apartment is wonderful and well equipped with everything you might need, including games for kids and many books of history / art and for reading as well.

Unique location in medieval hillside village. Far-reaching views from balcony. Warm, cosy, beautifully furnished & comfortable beds. Genial grocer Andrea stocks delicious local deli produce & all day-to day needs. Jennifer was on hand to advise & book restaurants. Ideal base for driving holiday in/around Rome/Lazio. We will be back to see more.

My best friend and I stayed here for five days and it exceeded our expectations. Palestrina is quiet and secluded yet a quick train ride into Rome. The apartment is impeccable. The kitchen was outfitted with everything we needed to test our culinary skills. The layout was spacious, comfy and cozy. The balcony a perfect size to enjoy a glass... More

The apartment is superb - everything you could need and the view from the balcony is superb. The location is beautiful - old Palestrina is unspoilt and fantastic to just wander around. Access to the spectacular museum is very easy from the apartment. The host Jennifer could not be more helpful, She did everything possible to help with the stay.... More

Stayed here for a New Year getaway and it was an absolute delight. The apartment is beautiful and has everything you would need. The view is stunning and it was lovely sitting on the balcony in the winter sun. The host, Jennifer, was wonderful. We arrived on Boxing Day and knowing Italy with shops likely to be closed she made... More

What a wonderful little gem. A gorgeous apartment tucked away in a cobblestone street in the tiny historic center of Palestrina, about a 45 minute drive from the hustle and bustle center of Rome. I spent one night here as a weekend getaway and I only wish I could have stayed for at least a week if not more! The... More
