“A stunning location for an unforgettable family holiday.”
Reviewed September 12, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

The house and grounds are absolutely stunning and whilst the pictures are great they can't possibly do it justice. The host was truly professional ensuring we were catered for in every way and made it a unforgettable holiday. We went as a family and had the most amazing time...we rarely left the grounds and congregated by the pool all day and sat out on the lower terrace each evening. We simply can't recommend this place highly enough.

Thank you for this great review! You have made our day! We are so glad to hear that we beat your expectations and that you had the great stay at Villa Vesta, that we hoped you would. It is a pretty spectacular, indeed, for an Italian holiday! And thank you especially for your very kind words about us which we so much appreciate.
We do hope to hear from you again. Thank you for taking the time to write.
All best wishes,
Susan, Adriana, and all of the Commendable Rentals Team

“Magical, we created lifetime of beautiful memories.”
Reviewed November 16, 2017 for a stay in May 2016

We will never forget the beauty, the staff, the food, the location and support provided by Adriana and her team which provided the backdrop for our Italian family reunion.
My grandfather, Ernesto, was born in Sora, Italy in 1890. He left for America in 1906 to find a "better life". Actually, he was leaving his abusive step-father whom he would watch abuse his mother. He left his mother and sister behind, vowing to return one day to bring them to America and to get away from the abuse at home.
He did create a beautiful life in Rhode Island and he did return to collect his mother 4 years later. However, his sister married and stayed in Italy.

In the over 100 years, Ernesto's family grew to over 90 Italo-Americans. While in Italy, his sister, Christina's family grew to almost the same size.
As many of the "elders" in my family were in their 80's, Athena, my beautiful partner and I decided to create a once-in--a-lifetime reunion. We needed lots of coordination, facilities that would accommodate 2 large receptions and a responsive staff.

Right from the start, it was clear that Adriana and her team would be able to help. They were amazing. The house was better than the photos, the staff quickly became part of our family, the food was wonderful and beautiful memories were created as part of this very special trip.

We brought over 20 family members from Rhode Island and about 30+ of our Italian cousins showed up for 2 separate catered events, with live music, tents, sit down meal service, bar, flowers, and translators it was beautiful. We sat outside around the pool in the beautiful private grounds of the villa.

The elders, met their cousins for the first time. There were hugs, tears, laughter, dancing and true connection. Adriana, thank you...what a wonderful magical place!

It was truly a once in a lifetime event. About 8 weeks after the reunion, Zia Anna, the matriarch of our Italian family passed away. She was honored at both family festas and was a beautiful woman. The last time I saw her, she was smiling, with tears in her eyes and she gave me a big hug thanking us for creating this special moment bringing the family of Christina and Ernesto together for the first time.

Dear Rocco and Athena,
Thank you for this review and for sharing the touching story of your family's history and journey. We at Commendable Rentals and at Villa Vesta were all moved by the love, the thoughtfulness and the generosity that went into this trip of a life time that you offered to your family.
It was our pleasure to help make this two week long event the dream that you had planned for almost a year. We booked wheel chairs and bikes, Wheel chair tours of the Vatican and Colosseum, visits to Rome and to your family birthplace, Wine tastings, and of course the two gala feasts that you offered your family. You are a rare and kind person and it was a pleasure to meet you and to share this journey with you both. Thank you for your confidence in us and your feed back, particularly to Adriana , who is one of the treasures of the Commendable Rentals Team.
Best wishes to you all from all of us,
Susan Doull and the Commendable Rental Team.

“Fantastic house with outstanding workmanship and stellar pool area.”
Reviewed July 4, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The location is great - Rome is accessible but you spend most days relaxing in the cooler area around Frascati. This is a spectacular house built with outstanding workmanship and with an impressive (as well as impressively maintained) garden. The rooms are good, and the ensuite bathrooms are great. The pool area is just fantastic - works for the whole family from kids 5- to 18-years old as well as the grandparents at 75+! The industrial kitchen is great whether you want to cook on your own or have someone do it for you. We have rented many houses and few work as well as this when you get up to group sizes of 17-20.

“Lavish large villa near Rome”
Reviewed July 3, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This large bourgeois house easily housed our family gathering of 21 persons in its 10 bedrooms/10+ bathrooms and we truly enjoyed the tennis court and large swimmingpool.
As it was quite hot period we only wished that the bedrooms had better fans or air conditioning.

I am so glad that you stay was a happy one .As you point out , it was an exceptional heat wave for a few days. That puts a strain on even the best Air-conditioners and fans! Under normal summer conditions, the thick walls and high ceilings keep the house plenty cool.
Kind regards,
Susan Doull and the Commendable Rentals Team
