“A Home away from Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

As we had all visited Rome's centro storico on previous holidays, we decided to base ourselves out in the countryside. What a brilliant decision. Cathy made our holiday a resounding success, with her care and dedication to her guests. She was so welcoming, and nothing was too much trouble. We had 8 nights in Villa Adriana, at the front of the property across the lawn from Zia Cathy's. A truly beautiful and perfectly maintained house, with all the comforts of home. If Italy was a little closer to New Zealand, I would be a regular. Cathy also provided us with a lot of information about the neighbouring towns, and has an impressive and extensive knowledge of the area as well.
My love affair with Italy continues....

Decided a country stay during the Italian summer was sensible to avoid heat, crowds and stress.
zia Cathys provided an elegant and restful retreat after daily excursions to Rome or surrounding antique local towns
larger rooms at a more reasonable rate than Rome and a pool to laze beside make this an excellent option for extended stays.
Run by an Italo-Australian who is genuinely hospitable and helpful and knowledgeable - particularly good shopping spots.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking fountain and rose garden and pool

We stayed here for a family wedding and it was great. We had lots of kiddies and it was very safe for them to run around. The hosts were the best and couldn't do enough for us.
lovely grounds.

Stayed at Zia Cathy's with our family in July. The setting is wonderful, a lovely old building surrounded by beautiful grounds with swimming pool. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and furnished with antique furniture. Cathy and the team made sure our stay with them was perfect, nothing was too much trouble for them, they really went out of their way to ensure we had a great time. Best hosts ever. Fabulous! Would reccmmend 100%
