Fabulous villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Great villa, fabulous kitchen, air conditioning was a big positive. Fresh linen was high quality and changed half way through holiday. It's difficult to think of anything negative here. Very handy for Rome only 35 mins on train. Highly recommended.

From the moment we were contacted by the owners of this amazing villa we felt very much at ease, we have rented with this company before but this is the first time in Italy. All the information required for our trip was very thorough and the owners were very diligent in answering our emails and questions., of which there were many.The pictures and descriptions are very accurate the only one which surprised us was the lounge, the picture makes it look small, it is not. If you want to be in the countryside and feel part of Italy this is the place to be. All the relevant information you would need is available in the villa, we were also able to talk to the owner when we had a query. The villa is stunning, we were a party of four but it has the capacity for much more. I am quite a picky person and there was nothing that I would have had to comment on. The villa itself is well set out with lots of inside and outside space, the pool was great and used very frequently, having a downstairs laundry room complete with a separate wet room was very handy. Our favourite space was the large mezzanine terrace with the stunning views, early in the morning when it is still and quiet sitting watching the mists clear was a lovely way to start the day, as was it at the end of the day having a lovely meal and watching the sun set and the sounds of night time in the Italian countryside invading your senses.Whether you wish to have a crazy fun filled holiday or just to unwind and relax the Villa Elean will not disappoint. My husband has been to Italy many times with work but this was a life times ambition for me and it proved everything I hoped it would be, when you start with a really good place to stay everything else falls into place. We went to Rome by train which was a short drive from the villa to the local train station, hoped on the early train and arrived in Rome an hour later. We were lucky with the language as English is not spoken as much in this rural area, we always took our phrase books and dictionary with us when we went out. I would not hesitate to recommend this villa to any friends or family.

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Villa Elena was perfect in every way. The Villa is ideally located within easy access of stunningly beautiful villages and a short drive into Rome. The pool was pristine and safe. The BBQ terrace area was our favorite most nights, with its amazing views of the surrounding countryside. Everything worked perfectly and my wife loved the kitchen. The only query we had was immediately sorted by the owners who were a mere phone call away. Certainly will be returning soon. Thank you Villa Elena!

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fabulous 2 weeks in August 2014.The house is in a brilliant position within striking distance of Rome by car or local train. Great supermarket a couple of miles away and some good restaurants too. We had everything we could possibly need and masses of inside and outside space. The pool is great and the area is quiet with great views. Finding the property was easier than we anticipated given its rural location. The owners were easy to contact and instilled that really important feeling of trust which you need when booking a holiday. Can't fault our experience. We would happily return.Thank you so much for a truly memorable holiday.

From the Owner

The property is just situated on a hillside just outside the beautiful medieval town of Paliano within the National Park area of Ciociaria. The area is really not well known abroad and is still very "italian" - something we love. It spacious and very tranquil and just the place to chill out.

It's also close enough to Rome to pop in for the evening. There is so much to see in the area but if you really appreciate history Rome/Naples/Pompei are within easy reach.
