    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.

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
