About Via Pierre:

Via Pierre Castelli Romani is an exclusive resort within a private park that ensures its guest maximum privacy surrounded by green and manicured gardens. Additionally, a panoramic breath-taking swimming pool area immersed in these wonderful gardens and made of Roman travertine is available for the guests’ leisure time.

The resort offers a limited number of luxurious Villas and Cottages all newly restored to offer their guests an intimate, timeless and elegant ambience.

The Villas and Cottages at Via Pierre convey a natural sense of connection with the past and simple traditions. Their friendly, welcoming atmosphere is deeply soaked by the Roman countryside culture where Popes, Emperors and Noble families have resided in the centuries.

Outside the quiet of the Cottages and Villas, guests can become immersed in the beautiful gardens and their century old trees. Options include relaxing in the wonderful swimming pool area; or visit Rome during the day as well as the wine itineraries and excursions in the volcanic Lakes region, with a picnic in the shade of the park and a guided tour of nearby villages and local vineyards. Visitors in the right season can also experience the olive harvest.

There are plenty of sports and outdoor activities in the area – in the park the guests can play football, water polo, table tennis and badminton. The resort’s team can also organize on guests’ demand various other activities in the area that include: excursions, mountain biking, archery, or even the chance just to enjoy a simple stroll through the lush green gardens in the volcanic lake regions.

A genuine, evocative and exclusive landscape: luxuriant terraces, lawns, shrubberies and trees; a swimming pool, stone walls and beds planted with lavender, basil and rosemary create the perfect setting for a barbecue, or an Italian evening around the wood-fired pizza oven.

Your welcome gift: kitchen stocked with a selection of food products and welcome basket containing fresh vegetables from the kitchen garden.

The elegant resort, located in Rome’s Castelli Romani region, was built in the mid-1960s with the collaboration of world known architects and extremely refined material. Initially the land was bought because of the optimal climatic conditions, the quality of its air, and the beauty of the area as well as the strategic location to Rome.

The villas of Via Pierre Castelli Romani have been recently refurbished and given a new lease of life, creating traditions of their own. Characterized by their unique and exclusive atmospheres each villa is different, with its own unique features.

Wonderful memories.

  • 5 of 5

We booked Villa Pierre for my 60th Birthday and we had a wonderful time. The property was Ideal for our family. Plenty of room for socializing, relaxing and having our own space. We were a total of four couples and an 11 month old grandson. We did not even have to ask for a crib, we were offered one when we made the booking,

The staff was terrific. Claudia from the Management team contacted us before we came to the property and she told as we could call her any time if there was any problem. As well, the groundskeeper Cornelius helped to make our stay very pleasant .

Stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Villa Pierre for a week and loved it! There were eight of us and we had more than enough room - it's huge! We had decided to stay outwith Rome at a villa so the kids could have a pool to cool down in on the days we didn't want to go into the City.

The facilities were exactly as stated on the description minus a DVD player (that may have been at another villa!)

There are five double beds and I think two sofa beds in the lounge. One of the rooms is an adjoining family room which was perfect for my husband and kids to keep us all together but in a huge space.

We didn't hire cars, we decided to taxi it due to hire cost, excesses quoted and risk with the crazy Italian driving! There are two nearby train stations so very easy to get a taxi to the train station to go into Rome. We walked to the supermarket for exercise but it's a bit of a trek with all your supplies - you need plenty of hands to carry it all back! Restaurants are not too far but just a bit too far to walk to so you would need a taxi there.

Finally.....Marvin, Luciano and Cornelio were fabulous....so helpful - nothing was too much trouble.

We would happily stay there again, thoroughly recommend it.

Peaceful oasis outside the hustle of Rome

  • 5 of 5

Via Pierre is simply idyllic. We were 7 adults, one 6-year-old and one 10-month old and we had a fabulous time exploring the gorgeous property, swimming in the pool and relaxing at Villa Uliveto. It is everything you imagine staying at an Italian villa would be like. And Marvin and the staff went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed to be comfortable.

The house was spacious and clean with great spaces both indoors and out for spending time with the loved ones. The kitchen was in good order. We made breakfast every morning and devoured the bread Cornelio dropped off at our door daily.

Getting to Rome is a snap--whether you drive in or take the train from Frascati. And it is so nice to have someplace so calm to go after a busy day of sightseeing. Frascati is charming and Marvin recommended an excellent restaurant there where we had a great meal.

My one recommendation for future guests is to have a car. This is not a reflection on Via Pierre and Marvin was spectacularly patient in ordering cab after cab for us. But we really should have rented a car for our own sake, lesson learned.

Really, I would have a hard time coming up with any criticisms of Via Pierre. It is a special place and I wish I were still there.

Impressive on every level

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property for our family vacation this year and it was perfect. The home was clean and fresh and the grounds were beautiful and peaceful. It comfortably accommodated our family of 14. It was a convenient journey into Rome on the underground. We also visited Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast while we stayed here. The manager, Marvin, was fantastic. He was incredibly helpful and made our visit so pleasant, helping us make restaurant reservations and booking taxis. We expected the property to be lovely, but it was more incredible than we imagined. Overall we had a fantastic experience and would absolutely recommend this property for anyone traveling in Italy.

Relaxing autumn days

  • 5 of 5

Villa Pierre was beautiful and extremely spacious. Although it was no pool weather anymore most of the days we spent outside exploring the area or enjoying the gardens of this great place. Rome was close by and we had amazing restaurants around the corner if we did not stay at home to use the indoor barbecue (!).

Thanks a lot for the great time

Amazing time with my family

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect! The swimming pool and garden were in absolut top shape, my kids loved it! The Villa was insanely big (we were 4 adults 7 children) and we had more space than we actually needed. Although we spent most of the time in the park and the area we went twice to Rome by taking the train from Frascati. Within 30 minutes you reach the centre of Rome, senza casino and traffico!

If you plan to take your family to Rome consider going to this lovely place, you won't be disappointed! We might be back next year as well.

Mike & Family

The old area of CASTELLI ROMANI is famous since ancient times for its beauty and its special climate. These factors had throughout the years a great influence on the ROMAN EMPERORS’, THE POPES’ and the most known ROMAN NOBLE FAMILIES’ choice to establish their summer residences in this area. This exclusive park is located between the towns of Marino, FRASCATI (famous for its winemaking) and CASTEL GANDOLFO, historic summer residence of the Pope, built on top of the beautiful volcanic lake.

Make sure to visit the splendid Greek Orthodox abbey of SAN NILO in GROTTAFERRATA built in the year 1000.

Interesting spot to be visited is also the area of TUSCOLO, with its well known amphitheatre and some important ancient Villas.

Only few kilometres away the ancient VIA APPIA ANTICA with its world known CATACOMBS, Roman MAUSOLEUMS and that also leads to the HISTORIC CENTER of ROME.

In the close town of TIVOLI, besides the famous THERMAL BATHS, absolutely worth to be visited is the marvellous and unique VILLA ADRIANA (built by the emperor Adriano) and VILLA D’ESTE, famous for its breath-taking fountains and play of water.

GOLF at the Castel Gandolfo Country Club

The building, which was once a cardinals’ house, is now considered the MOST BEAUTIFUL GOLF CLUB IN ROME, Robert Trent Jones has turned the volcanic crater into a majestic golf course. The golf course is fully equipped and features lakes, bunkers, artificial obstacles, and many other tricks among centuries-old olive trees, oaks, and maritime pines.
