    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    Altavista is near many local attractions (in addition to Rome) such as museums, historic villas, amusement parks, thermal baths, cinemas, restaurants, riding stables and outlet shopping centres. The beaches of Lazio are about an hour and a half away, while quiet hiking paths are just steps away in the Apennine hills behind the house.

    All furnishings at Altavista were carefully chosen to make guests feel at home; this means there are high quality embroidered bed linens, fluffy towels, antique beds with new mattresses and pillows to ensure a good night's rest. A fully equipped kitchen and nearby mini-market make meal planning easy, and the washing machine allows for clothes washing at no extra cost (even detergents are provided free of charge). Free WIFI.

We have stayed in central Rome before, where there is more than enough to keep you occupied just within the old city. We were looking for somewhere close to, but outside of, Rome so that we could explore some of the attractions outside of the city and those on the outskirts that are a bit of a pain to get... more

The entrance opened onto one of the many cobbled streets that weave up and down the hill through the town, each of which was unique and full of charm. The town itself had plenty of places to eat, get ice cream or pastries and... more

I could not have asked for a more perfect place. The accommodations were clean and cozy. The location was near the great museum and also the city center shops, and the proprietress was friendly and helpful. I will definitely stay there again. more
