We stayed in the Penthouse for 1 week in October and had a fabulous time. The views from the bedroom and living room were absolutely stunning. Each morning we woke up to the beautiful hilltop landscapes viewed through the huge window, looking just like a painting. The apartment was very nice, and large, including 3 bathrooms. The property has a large garden and a very large swimming pool. The kitchen was extremely well equipped with everything you need to make your meals. We used the barbeque for one of the meals and enjoyed sitting out on the large terrace drinking wine.
The best thing about our stay was the friendliness and generosity of our hosts, Sylvia and Mario. Sylvia (who speaks English very well), went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed, including a nice welcome package consisting of fruit, crackers and a wonderful bottle of red wine . We spent one night sitting with Sylvia and Mario sharing wine and discussing activities around the area, they were so nice. Sylvia even brought up two homemade dishes for us on subsequent evenings, you can’t ask for more than that!
We never made it to any of the shops or restaurants in Formello. We drove to a nearby train station (15 min drive) and took the train into Rome several times. This was very easy to do, and cost under $2 round trip on the train. We walked all over Rome, and were lucky enough to have fantastic weather for most of our trip.
There is a supermarket close by where you can stock up on supplies for meals, but you definitely need a car to get around the area. We can’t wait to come back and stay in the Penthouse again, we are already planning a return trip.
