Located in the historical centre of Anguillara Sabazia, a medieval town 55 minutes away from Vatican city and Rome center, just a walk away from lake Bracciano's shores and the shopping area, this cosy retreat will welcome you when you want to get away for a while, to work on your projects, think or simply recharge your batteries after an intense period.
The astonishing rooftop terrace overlooking the lake, where you can rest during the day, becomes very romantic at night time.

The space

This is house is something we really love and made for our family. A place nearby Rome where to slow down time and have excellent relax without having to travel far away.

Wherever we will move in the future we will always keep this house as our little treasure.

It has the typical features of old medieval townhouses with the comfort of the modern times. It is organised on four levels: On the ground floor we enter in the cosy living room with fireplace and open kitchen, on the 1st floor the comfortable bedroom with queen-size bed and a mix of antique and modern furniture the functional bathroom with his own huge shower, the washing machine, that is also dryer, and lawndry wardrobe, on the 2nd floor there is the mansarda, that is set up as studio with a desk, an armchair, a comfy single bed that might be turned into a queen bed. In the mansarda we even created an extra sink with cold and hot water for your comfort. Please consider that the room in the mansarda does not have a door. From the mansarda through a roboust wooden ladder and a roof hatch you can reach the terrace overlooking the old town and the lake where you have a sun-bed, armchair, dining table for four and a parasol.

NOTE: Please inform me in case you are travelling with a kid, age less than 3 years old that will sleep in the crib. Your boy/girl will stay for free.

Guest access

Knowing you will take good care of things, the house is at your complete disposal. There are some personal items that we normally keep under the master bed and in the rainbow cabinets under the wooden staircase.

Interaction with guests

Surely we are happy to help our guests if desired.

Other things to note

This is an old medieval house, just refurbished with all comforts, but still we did not want to change the nature of the artefact that is old, hence there is NO elevator but a lot of stairs, two passages are narrow but contribute to overall characteristic of the house . Anyway I'm a 1.90cm tall and 110kg heavy man and I can move well around.

A roof top terrace to see all the stars and the lake. We roasted chestnuts in the fireplace while drinking a delightful red wine that Francesco's father made. The 17th century town home is super clean, modern and rustic. The shower and bathroom are wonderful and spacious. The bed very comfortable. The kitchen is modern and very functional. The roof top terrace is ultimate. The view from the terrace is really incredible. The best part of the experience was the customer service. Francesco created opportunities to make our trip memorable and communication was perfect. He really created a great memory for us. I was so inspired I created this video of his place and town so you can see for yourself. Next year I will be staying longer! (URL HIDDEN)

I love the opportunity Airbnb created allowing likeminded people to travel all around the world in warm cosy homes, benefiting from local knowledge to make the best use of their time. Many thanks for your beautiful video I posted on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page of MyCosyRetreatInAnguillara. Please come back any time!

My girlfriend and I had a beautiful time in Francescos House in Anguillara. The Town itself is just beautiful, calm and yet fulfills all the needs a traveller could think of (24 hour shops, nice locals, top food, beautiful bathing possibilites, perfect for outdoor activity, close to Roma). Francesco gave us a lot of useful information, which made our stay a dream. The house really is a cozy retreat with an incredible view over lake braciano, top wifi and a tasteful interieur.

My girlfriend and I had an extremely relaxing time at the house beside the lake. The house was beautiful inside and the surrounding area is just as nice as well as quiet. Everything was perfect and communication with Francesco was great along with the locals being very pleasant. Would recommend to anyone with a family or just couples and is a perfect retreat after the fast-pace of Rome.

This is a gorgeous property in a lovely place. The view from the rooftop terrace is spectacular and there is a warm breeze until late at night. The accommodation is modern and clean with stylish touches that make it homely too. In Anguillara you can enjoy a restful break or an activity packed one; a day at the lake is a must though! Francesco is a gracious and generous host with great local knowledge too. We had a fabulous time and can't wait to go back next year!

Francesco war ein sehr freundlicher, hilfsbereiter Gastgeber. Wir haben viele Tipps für Unternehmungen, etc bekommen. Er war für alle Fragen immer erreichbar. Zum Check-In wurden wir mit einer Flasche Wein und Kuchen begrüßt. Das Häuschen ist traumhaft schön. Sehr authentisch in der Altstadt gelegen, mitten zwischen Einheimischen. Die Beschreibungen treffen exakt zu. Wir haben viel gekocht und gegrillt. Die Küche ist dafür ausreichend ausgestattet. Ein absolutes Highlight ist die Dachterasse. Sowohl Sonnenauf- als auch den -untergang sollte man sich dort nicht entgehen lassen! Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und würden jederzeit wieder kommen. Danke Francesco, dass du das mit uns geteilt hast.

Response from Francesco:
Dear Julia, it has been a pleasure to share MyCosyRetreatInAnguillara with you guys. I'm so happy to know you also enjoyed the kitchen and the BBQ grill. Slowing down time and relaxing at home while organising nice excursions downtown Rome, around Bracciano and Martignano the lakes, to the beautiful seasid and to the Lazio countryside up to Viterbo and further. You've been wise and brave deciding to stay even more than one week, and this proved to be an excellent way to exploit MyCosyRetreatInAnguillara as it's best! Please take care and come back anytime! Ciao!
