All we had hoped for +!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at L'Osteriola for one week earlier this month. It is a beautifully maintained property very close to Tivoli.

We were a group of 9 - my fiance and myself plus our 7 adult children (ages 19-30). The villa was tastefully decorated, spacious and immaculate. The pool was fantastic! The caretaker lives in a separate section of the house and provided housekeeping services daily. She was very friendly and helpful in spite of our non-existent Italian and her limited english.

Lisia had recommended that we have a rental car and this was very good advice. Tivoli (and the train station) is an easy 10 minute drive while the grocery store was only a few minutes away.

My fiance and I were in Tivoli to be married and with Lisia's help we were able to have our wedding dinner at L'Osteriola. Lisia arranged all the details: the chef, the server, the outdoor table settings (appetizers with prosecco in one area of the garden and a sit down dinner in another) complete with a beautifully set table, hand printed menus and candlelight. Lisia went above and beyond with special touches that we hadn't even asked for. Thanks to Lisia, it was a truly magical evening.

We thoroughly enjoyed all the heritage sites in Tivoli as well as exploring the old town itself. Whether relaxing with a cappucino, shopping for produce at the local market, or just people watching, Tivoli is a place I would definitely return to.

We also traveled by train into Rome for sightseeing. This allowed everyone in our party to pursue their own interests during their stay. The train service between Tivoli and Rome is frequent and very convenient.

I highly recommend Villa Osteriola. I can't say enough about Lisia - she helped to make our stay truly memorable.

Lovely grounds in a great Country

  • 4 of 5

The villa is a very nice place just outside of Tivoli. It's even opposite part of an incredibly old aqueduct which is great to see all lit up at night.

We spent most of our time outside by the pool or the tennis table. The grounds a very beautiful and expansive. The pool was a great temperature to cool you down after being in the sun too long and is a good size. Lots of tables an chairs dotted about to cater for everyone. The villa it's self is nice enough, don't expect 5 star hotel modern styling but it had a nice character to it but its nice and cool and didn't get too hot. Kitchen was simple but did the job. A couple of the rooms were apparently a bit noisy as they were right by the road.

We did day trips into Rome, Hadrian's Palace and Tivoli. It literally feels like your walking history. Looking at a building which is 2000 years old does leaves you dazzled. Really amazing places. We hired a car to get around, go to the shops etc. There's a big supermarket about a 20 min drive the other side of Tivoli. A big CarreFour. But we decided to get a train into Rome which took about 45/60 mins.

All in all a very nice Villa and a really great country with amazing food and history.

Some advice if you book.

- Download Google Translate app on your phone. Not a lot of people speak English outside of central Rome so it's a useful tool.

- Bring mosquito repellent. It's quite bitey.

- Make sure everyone in you party doesn't buy a watermelon. You won't get through it all.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. It has been a pleasure to have you as guests. I have already planned to do some works this September to change the windows of the two not very silent rooms to make them definitely silent. Lisia

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Overall the stay was absolutely wonderful. The grounds of the villa were a sight to behold; stunning. The cleaner lady, svetlana, came around each day and was incredibly friendly and well-mannered, albeit there was a slight language barrier. The villa is very secluded so I would recommend a car since the public transport proved slightly unreliable. Location is ideal for a relaxed holiday and I cannot stress enough quite how beautiful the villa and grounds were. 5/5.
