In the stunning Grottaferrata, situated at the foot of Rome’s Alban Hills, lies a charming country estate surrounded by manicured lawns, umbrella pines and cypress trees. This gracious estate evokes the elegant essence of a historic manor with its charming architecture, refined furnishings and prime location amongst the vineyards of Castelli Romani. Country homes like this have a transcendent relationship with nature - with an expanse of arches and a mirage of glass windows, this home effortlessly invites the outside in. Accompanied by stunning marbled stone floors, the large rooms are adorned with embellished tray ceilings and grand furnishings that invite you to take a turn about the room. The sitting room day bed or the library lounge chairs are the perfect places to settle with one of the library books, o if you’re feeling more active, sport a game or two of billiards in your drawing-room or head out to the tennis courts for a friendly. Set about a few lengths in one of the two swimming pools then settle under the porch for tea, whilst admiring the sprawling grounds. The professional kitchen is perfectly equipped for the chef of your group to prepare a feast, whilst the formal dining room is a delight to share an intimate dinner. This indulgent compound is in the perfect spot for leisurely walks while opportunities for wine tours and horseriding are all within a short drive. Located only thirty minutes from Rome’s city centre, you can enjoy the city’s cultural energy and have an indulgent retreat to return home to.

Local guide


About Castelli Romani

A way out to the southeast of the city, Castelli Romani is an idyllic group of villages that make a welcome break from the city. Nestled in among hilltops, forests, and volcanic lakes, some of them even date back as far (or further) than Rome itself, as you can tell from the abundance of ancient ruins in the area. You won’t be the first to be inspired by the area...
