We spent two weeks in August 2012 in this lovely little house. 40 mins train journey from Rome. The house is compact but has everything required for a family of four , with a huge private outdoor space for al-fresco dinining. The air conditionning was fab , especially as the temperature was in the high 30s.The surrounding countryside should also not be missed with many hill top villages to be explored. There are two volcanic lakes( warm water!) with great facilities for swimming within 90 mins car drive. If that drive is too far the pool at Collebelvedere is ideal and the view across the valley as the sun sets is truely beautiful.
The small town of Passe Corse has everything you need and the local people are very friendly and helpful even if you don't seak any Italian. The ice cream parlour is a must, there are enough varieties of ice creams to keep a family of three choosing every day for 2 weeks!! Relax and enjoy this oais of tranqulity
