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.
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.
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.
Availability of the fireplace and the BBQ is strictly limited to guests that confirm to know very well how to use them.
Please do not make noise on the rooftop terrace after 22.00. You can stay, but i kindly ask you not to talk out-loud or play music.
Smoking is allowed only on the terrace and outside the main entrance door.
Small pets might be allowed-in, but please ask.
You will have to place the brown bin with the organic waste outside the door on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays (before 7am) and separate the rest in the dedicated, coloured, bags that are near the entrance. We will take care of recycling plastic, glass, carton and metal you separated there after you will leave.
Coming back home from the beach we kindly ask you to wash your feet before entering home so not to take sand inside the house :) there are several fountains nearby in the old town and on the lake side.
Many thanks for your understanding!
