    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
    Since its spring 2008 inauguration, Il Sogno has been readily called 'home' by many guests. It is a comfortable yet elegant place to unwind in the silence and fresh air of the countryside. It is the ideal vantage point from which to visit the city centre or the gorgeous lakes Martignano, Bracciano and Vico and to take a day trip to the neighboring regions of Umbria and Tuscany.

    Have a swim and then take in the splendor of the setting sun after a busy day of sightseeing, either in the capital, or in the many parks, churches and archaeological sites. Or cook a meal and eat al fresco, after a day of sailing, kayaking and swimming at one of the nearby lakes.

The Brook Cottage is idyllic, set on the edge of a meadow, with a wood and brook that runs behind it. However in practical terms because while we were there there was heavy rain and a number of thunder storms the insects were quite invasive, spiders, daddy long legs and Mosquitos were an issue for the whole 14 days. If... more

Management response:

I recently received an email from TripAdvisor for three reviews on the same day, two absolutely glowing and one not so positive. Even after reading the third, I confirmed it. Before being a B&B/vacation rental owner I did not realize that the owner can deny a review. Buyer beware as not all owners may be completely honest! In any case,... more

For those of you who want to have your cake and eat it - in terms of a relaxing location but within easy reach of all that Rome and its environs have to offer, then Brook Cottage leaves no box unticked. Ideal for a family of four, or maybe two couples, the cottage located in a quite idyllic property, gives... more

We were initially attracted to Il Sogno by the photos on the website. They do not do the place full justice. From the warmth of the reception to the location of Brook Cottage, to the wonderful pool, our whole holiday was superb. With the sights of Rome in easy reach, as well as the beautiful lakes just the North (... more
