Reviewed 20 May 2011

Our stay at Villa Finzi was most enjoyable, Franscesca makes you feel as though you have found a friend....every aspect of our stay was memorable, we thought the room and facilities were excellent and the breakfast and attention to detail second to none. We would definitely recommend Villa Finza to anyone

Room Tip: Book early and avoid missing out.

Splendid hills north of Rome, rustic chic property of early 20th century, stunning grounds with flowering acacia in April, big (big!) bedroom, big bathroom, hot water aplenty - who could possible ask for more?

Myself, my wife and teenage daughter stayed in Villa Finzi in April 2010.
We found the the hosts, Marcello and Francesca friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the history. Both speak excellent English and were so helpful. It was like visiting friends rather than a B&B.
This is not a modern boutique hotel. It is exactly what it says on the tin!
The B&B was not really a place to visit in itself although it had a colourful history and there are beautiful walks in rural settings. We just didn't have the time to explore.
The accommodation is basic but comfortable. Ideal for sight seers. The breakfast is local bread, jams and spreads, cheese, good coffee and company.

The villa was a little difficult to find (we had to enlist the help of some locals) but it was just as we expected / wanted: a family home set in beautiful surroundings.
We primarily went to see Rome and drove from Rome to Palestrina (about an hour). However, we travelled back to Rome to sight see by train, a 40 minute journey. The station at Zagarola is a short distance away from the villa and a day ticket to Rome which also covered all other public transport cost 6 euro each. The villa is also situated fairly close to the motorway which we used to head for Naples and Pompeii. (2hr drive)

All in all a very pleasant stay. We would have no hesitation returning or to recommend it to others.

We have stayed 4 nights in Villa Finzi. The villa is a beautiful old house, surrounded by a large garden, in a quiet part of Palestrina. The hosts (Francesca and Marcello) are one of the most friendly hosts we have ever met. We will miss the breakfasts with Francesca and our chats with Marcello....

After a long tiring journey we were welcomed with open arms by Francesca and Marcello. Fortunately for us both Francesca and Marcello speak excellent English and although only there for one night we felt instantly at home. This grand old villa is situated in quiet countryside, and although now a little tired is full of history, as explained to us by a knowledgeable Marcello. Our room was comfortable and clean, filled with lovely touches like fresh flowers and with plenty of books containing local and general information. Breakfast was served in a large typical Italian kitchen and consisted of homemade fruit juice, jams and marmalade. Coffee and tea were freshly prepared when required and Francesca went out of her way to make toast just the way I like it. Perfect. We were blown over by the character of the whole place and we would not hesitate to recommend Villa Finzi.

Villa Finzi is a wonderful place just outside of Palestrina near Rome.
We were there to see family and would love to return and
spend more time at the Villa enjoying the grounds and relaxing.
Francesca and Marcello are so delightful, excellent hosts, helpful but you have a lot
of privacy. Francesca's English is excellent...a real gem of a place!!!
the Villa has a fascinating history itself.

The Villa Finzi is a remarkable B&B just outside of Palestrina, Lazio. The Villa is an historic landmark within an easy train ride of Rome. Tivoli is not far away for those interested in its beautiful gardens. Francesca and Marcello are wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home. Just down the road is a local osteria that serves that best pizza I have had in Italy. Our room was large and well decorated with a cable equipped TV (which we did not use since the local sights were much more interesting). The bathroom features a large bathtub - something found in no other B&B we have stayed in. Highly recommended!
