“A special Villa”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Just over one hour from Rome on the edge of Viterbo we arrived at the stunning Villa Farinella, conveniently set off from the road in a pastoral and quiet setting. We were warmly welcomed by Rita who opened the gate and villa to our delight as she showed us our magnificent bedroom and living quarters for guests to relax in luxury and beauty. Rita, her son, Maurizio, and his wife Valentina were most gracious and generous, with a lovely breakfast and refreshments always available. They were a fountain of information, helping us find the beautiful gardens and villas in the area. For a truly elegant and relaxing experience of Italy we highly recommend Villa Farinellla.

Room Tip: The corner bedroom aside from the master suite is the best.

After spending 10 days exploring beautiful Tuscany, this lovely older historical Italian Villa located in a very quiet and serene neighborhood of Viterbo was just what we were hoping for. We met Valentina at the front gate who was a very warm and gracious host and stayed in the stunning, spacious, grand suite for 2 nights. Beautiful view from the bedroom window and delighted in watching their two horses out back. The bathroom was very modern with an extra large air jet tub as well as a separate shower. The very comfortable, original period furniture and paintings in the common rooms made you feel like you were transported back in time even while accessing free wi-fi. The medeival city centre and wonderful restaurants were just minutes away. All in all it was a perfect stay to end our fantastic holiday!
Thank you Valentina for making us feel like very special guests in your magnificent home.

We stayed in this Villa for just one night, but are sure we will return there, if again in the neighbourhood of Viterbo. It is a real old Italian Villa, with all the furniture in it that you expect. Everything very well kept. The host treats you as if you are family. The centre of the city is only five minutes away by car.

This historic villa is beautifully maintained as a family operation. Maurizio and his wife are gracious and generous hosts. We stayed in the stately 'pink room' suite ... very spacious, stunning view, comfortable bed and crisp linens. The ensuite bathroom is finished with high end modern fittings. Free wi-fi in the lounge, and tasty continental breakfast included.

Villa Farinella was among the best places we stayed in Italy. Our room was spacious and beautifully decorated and opened out into an equally beautiful sitting room and dining area. The location is perfect for touring Viterbo and surrounding small historic towns, including the amazing Villla Lante and Bagnaia. Rita, the owner of Villa Farinella, is a lovely hostess whose conversations guided our experience and enhanced our journey. A wonderful restaurant, Bistrot, is a five-minute walk from the Villa Farinella. We highly recommend this B&B as one of the most reasonably priced of our stays and definitely at the top of the scale for comfort, history, and location.

We recently stayed at Villa Farinella with our ten year old daughter and thoroughly enjoyed it. As stated by the other reviewers, Rita is a delightful and extremely helpful and knowledgeable hostess. We were given a number of tips about the region that made it an interesting stay. The villa has been beautifully maintained and elegantly furnished and feels like a step back in time. The many personal effects and family photos add to the intimacy of what was once a family home. We also stayed in the "pink" room and agree this is the room to request. Breakfast is fairly simple and is probably the only area that could be improved.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for the pink suite.

This is a lovely Bed and Breakfast, it is a very personal experience like most b and b's are. The nice thing about Villa Farinella is it is spacious yet comforting, quiet but not too quiet. The owner is very interesting has a lot to say to help you out and pass on tips of where to go and what to see, she is warm and welcoming. The only room to stay in, in my opinion, is the suite that is pink. Well worth the price. The room overlooks the farm land in the back of the villa and it is idyllic. Just down the road is an excellent restaurant called Il Bistro. It has a Great wine list and home cooked sophisticated food. The villa is just outside Viterbo and well situated to drive to see Villa Lante one of the great gardens in Italy which was our reason for staying there. I would definitely go back if we wanted to take friends to see Villa Lante.

Room Tip: ask for the pink room

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The B&B Farinella, established since 1999, found its aim in bringing new life and preserve to abandon a wonderful country house whose structure kept wearing down rapidly. We made the decision to restore and then open it to guests, up to six, who prefers to stay in a proper and fascinating old country house. Our hospitality is way far different from the classical hotel one: we bring more familiarity as well as intimacy in our service. Inspired from and as for the classic Irish B&B, you can enjoy a different and more characteristic atmosphere: you'll never wake up at the noises of traffic, more likely you could be awaked at birdies singing on the horse-chestnuts by the garden. ... more   less
