Our family of 5 loved our stay here. Elisabeth is really sweet and my daughters enjoyed cooking lessons with her. She even baked a birthday cake and we surprised my daughter. Stefano is a funny and personable guy who is passionate about his olive trees and olive oil, preserving and excavating the Roman villa on his property, cooking and eating delicious food, and ecological living. We were all fascinated by Stefano's tour of the Roman villa and ancient olive groves - be sure to do this! We learned so much about Roman history and olive trees. Ask for a tasting of the olive oils from their farm. We loved the vegetarian meals (and we're not even vegetarian) and enjoyed special treats of fresh and freshly sautéed porcini mushrooms. The rooms are nice and clean. It's only a 40 minute train ride from the center of Rome where they will pick you up and drive you 30 minutes to their farm. It is well worth getting off the beaten track to spend some time here.
