We have just returned from a wonderful weeks trip. The apartment was a delight, spotless, full of tasteful furnishings, like an understated home! The view from the tiny balcony made a wonderful backdrop to Italian life yet peaceful at night...Jennifer the owner made a wonderful trip memorable. We had a pasta lesson and lots of local knowledge that made it... More

We felt that this place was ours from the very beginning. Everything was so comfortable and clean! The house was fully equipped for self catering and also for entertainment (lots of books, DVDs, games). Special thanks to Jennifer (the owner) for all baby stuff, that made our fist trip with the baby just perfect! This place was so relaxing, that... More

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

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. The... More

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.
