  • Description


    I just moved in my house in the beautiful surroundings of Rome, where I work and enjoy my garden with friends and pets. The area is in a protected park, and the property has a beautiful garden, cherry, nut and chestnut trees, with wild berries and strawberries everywhere! The place is newly restructured, and I am in the process of renting the small house for brief periods or giving it for free to workawayers. The property is located at 600 mt altitude, so the place is very fresh and the air amazingly clean. I live with 2 friendly dogs and 1 cat. Rome is at a 40 minutes' drive distance only. You will need a car to reach me, but once here, you have basic services at a 10' walking distance (restaurant, supermarket, pharmacy, etc)

    The accomodation is an independent little house, with kitchenette and bathroom with shower. It is newly restructured, so it is really cozy and clean. I cook for me in the evening and I will be delighted to share my meals with you.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    I strongly suggest to come by car, or to rent one. Rome and suburbs are not very well organized in terms of public transportation. If you do not have a car, well, you'll find a bus station 1km from the house, from where you can pick up a bus leading to the metro station of Rome Anagnina (from there you can be in the centre of Rome in 20', and take a bus to-from both Rome airports) or go to visit (10, 15' by car or bus) the typical villages of Castelli Romani, which host many events during summer (wine and food festival), or visit and dine at a 'Fraschetta'. If you know what 'Grand Tour' was, you can walk on the steps of the many intellectuals (Stendhal, John Ruskin, Keats, Mary Shelley, Goethe, Bryon) who ended their the tour just here, or enjoy the beaty and wilderness of the 'Parco del Vivaro' with its wild horses, take a bath and walking tour of Lago di Albano, visit some local wine producer, have a horse trekking tour at one of the nearby horse riding places.

    I have a good wifi line, but no tv;) It was a choice, to disconnect, but I must be on-line frequently for working reasons, so you can use a dedicated wifi which has no limit

    I have a big garden, plenty of space for your van during your time here. Not equipped for the 'toilet waste' though...

    Can possibly accept pets

    I have a very sweet big male dog who behaves well only with female dogs, and a smaller female dog. Plus, I have a shy cat who does not like strangers in any form:=) Let's see if your pet can apply (I could accept a small, female dog, provided he does not hunt the cat)
