Torretta de'Massimi
Ranked #484 of 1,170 Specialty Lodging in Rome
Reviewed May 31, 2011

The best part about Toretta, is following a long, hot day of being a tourist, you return to a real home to jump in your private pool and sip cocktails in an ancient medieval tower. On the way back from the Center, we got off one bus stop prior to pick up Rome's best delicacies - salami, parmesan and Prosecco and lived like a true Roman. You simply are unable to do this in a hotel. Toretta is an ideal location for day trips, as there is plenty of parking on the gorgeous farm and highways are all nearby. Where else can you wake up to sounds of donkeys in Rome? This is the perfect place for the traveler who likes the option of cooking their own food, having parties, likes their privacy and wants to chill out after a hectic day in the city. This is the perfect place for kids as well as honeymooners.

A great place to stay offering peace and tranquility with the benefit of a pool, ideal after a long day walking around the city. The transfer to the city centre by bus is very easy and the local supermarket provides everything you need. The owner is charming and very helpful.

Have been twice to Torretta for two different weekends last year and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I love Rome and jump at any opportunity to go to the Eternal City. Torretta is like being in a parallel world. My room had views on the beautiful garden or better on the grounds! There was total silence.Only birds singing in the morning. It s incredible that this property is within Rome's city limits! My room had several windows a full bathroom with a fantastic shower. The bus stop is just outside the property and in 20 minutes you are in the Vatican! The charming owner showed me the other possibilities mainly the two bedroom 2 and half bathroom dependance with swimming pool that would make a great family holiday! Specially for bored children that hate Museums!... Where can you find a private pool in Rome??? Anyway Torretta is great for the single traveller like me and better still for families travelling with children. Pls don t change a thing!

My family and I stayed four nights at the torretta de'Massimi and completely enjoyed our stay. This is definitely a unique lodging experience that we wholeheartedly recommend. Our entire family had a terrific time. The tower is historic and interesting, while clean and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and animal lovers will enjoy seeing the chickens, dogs and donkeys (Skippy is an especially sweet little dog). The view from the top of the tower is wonderful and since we stayed over New Year's eve, it was a terrific place to view the fireworks that seemed to go on for over an hour in all directions - what a memory! There is a lovely fireplace in the family room that we all enjoyed sitting around in the evenings - very relaxing after a day of sightseeing. The city center is not difficult to reach by bus (a short walk to the bus stop) and there are two grocery stores nearby (one within walking distance, one better accessed by bus). But it is the owner that makes the experience so charming, he is so welcoming and kind that you feel completely at home. We highly recommend the torretta de'Massimi!

We spent a week at the Torretta de Massima. The estate is just amazing – beautiful tower, garden and surroundings. It is quiet and there is also a great swimming pool. The week was very hot and it was wonderful to go swimming after a sweaty visit to Rome. The tower is clean and well kept. The estate is outside Rome center but it is really easy to go Rome using a bus. It takes only about 25 minutes to reach the center of Rome. The owner of the estate is a very charming person who helped us in every way he could. We really recommend this estate when visiting at Rome.

It was a pleasure to stay at this fantastic property. The ambience is amazing. This quiet refuge has all the necessary conveniences and is a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the big metropolis of Rome. The landlord is a very nice gentleman who is knowledgeable and very helpful to make your stay as enjoyable as can be. Thank you very much for a great stay!

My husband and I stayed here for a week for our honeymoon, and it was the perfect romantic location. It's secluded, peaceful and private, but with amenities within walking distance. The Torretta is well kept, along with the gardens and pool, and the owner is extremely helpful and friendly.
You have to get the bus to find good places to eat, but the public transport system is very efficient and easy to use, with the bus station about a ten minute walk from the Torretta. The local supermarket (also about 10 minutes away) had all we needed for food throughout the week for when we weren't in the city.
