“Absolutetly amazing Experience”
Reviewed 18 May 2017 for a stay in September 2016

I have been fortunate enough to hac
ve stayed at this charming Villa four times,the last being September 2016. I can,t say enough about the beautiful Casale,the warmth of the family and staff,and the lovely surrounding area. The Casale Sonnino has working vineyards and olive groves and if you are lucky enough as we were to be there at harvest time we actually helped pick the grapes!!They also produce their own award winning olive oil.Close to Rome and situated near Frascati it was always a treat for us to walk up to the nearby hill townof Monte Porzio Catone,itself an untouristed gem. Everything about this wonderful Casale will make you want to return again and again. There is so much to see and explore in the area and the ease of getting around make it an excellent base for day trips. If you choose to have Tiziana and Giovanna prepare some meals for you you are indeed in store for an amazing experience. From the natural beauty of the area to the ambiance of Casale Sonnino you will be enchanted.

“It was a wonderful place to celebrate a special birthday with family and friends.”
Reviewed 25 February 2017 for a stay in October 2016
2
people found this review helpful

We arrived in late October to perfect weather with friends to celebrate our special birthdays. The villa is elegant but very unpretentious. The grapes and olives had already been harvested but we were still able to get a taste of what is involved in running a family farm. The villa's proximity to Rome made it easy for us to do day trips into the city by train. The real attraction, however, of the villa's location are the numerous small towns on the neighboring hills and the lakes Nemi and Albano. Visits for walks, cappuccino, pastries and wine were wonderful. George and Claire were perfect hosts and the meals prepared for consumption before a roaring fire were fabulous.

“A perfect Christmas Vacation!”
Reviewed 13 May 2016 for a stay in December 2015

person found this review helpful

We spent 2 weeks at Casale Sonnino over Christmas and New Year. George was very accommodating for our large family. We had a wonderful breakfast every morning and enjoyed some lovely days lounging around the house. We were visiting family and hosted a Christmas eve potluck and a catered New Years Eve party. George and crew made the room beautiful, purchasing a large Christmas tree, which future guests can enjoy. And he even bought some fireworks for midnight on New Years eve. The New Years eve view from the terrace was amazing and so much more than we expected! We could see the fireworks all over Rome, absolutely stunning! The dinner was catered by the restaurant and winery nearby, Agriturismo Palotta. Both the food and wine were delicious. We even visited the winery for a tasting prior to the party to choose our wines. The service staff were very accommodating at the house. We had many lovely evenings cooking in the kitchen. The olive oil is delicious and lucky for us they were just getting that year’s oil ready. So we bought a couple litres to bring home. I would absolutely return without hesitation! I would love to go in the summer sometime to enjoy the gardens and the outdoor areas

“Modern comfort, old world charm, ideal location”
Reviewed 9 October 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

We adored our stay at the Casale, from the comfort of the beautifully restored villa surrounded by olive groves and vineyards to its ideal location on the outskirts of Rome.
The house is a gem, modern comfort with old world charm, and is ideally located between Rome and Frascati. The rooms are adorned with family history and we were able to lounge in each one as a family or when someone needed their own space, there was definitely a room to find! The rooftop is charming with a pool table, games and lounge chairs to take in the sun or watch the stars at night.

George is a marvellous host and a source of great tips for touring the area, both close by (like Frascati and the incredible volcanic lakes) and further afield (Tivoli and beyond).
Frascati is a beautiful town located 10 minutes away, known for its delicious regional white wines that we truly enjoyed with amazing cheese, charcuteries plates and of course, pasta dishes and pizza! (Frascati also has a large 24h supermarket which is extremely convenient.) In the sweltering summer, we opted for a one-day-in-Rome and one-day-discovering-the-area schedule, and it worked out very well for us. We loved going to the crystalline Lake Albano for a day of rest and relaxation, following a day of sightseeing in Rome. It was a perfect combo!

“The Casale Sonnino is a glorious vacation destination!”
Reviewed 8 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

person found this review helpful

What a beautiful Roman holiday! The Casale Sonnino is a glorious vacation destination. It offers spacious accommodation in the picturesque hills outside Rome. It's close enough to take the metro in from a nearby town to explore the city without driving and parking woes. Every morning, we were greeted with a huge continental breakfast prepared by the friendly Casale staff who asked happily do laundry daily. After breakfast, we either ventured into Rome or took day trips. A friend of the owner, Simeone Ricci, offered excellent guided adventures specifically created to our wishes. We definitely would never have found intriguing locations like these on our own. Some of the trips included Campo Imperatore, St. Stefano di Sassiano, Mount Livata, Castelli and more. Spending time at the Casale was a treat unto itself. Walks through the olive trees and vineyard, reading in the garden or exploring the underground tunnels and learning the history of the Casale was wonderful.

“Great for our entire family-Amazing”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We loved staying at the Casale. We went with 4 generations of our family and it was suitable for everyone. Our young boys especially loved exploring the grounds with their new best friends Dylan (the dog) and Mr. Chips (the cat). We also loved how convenient it was not only to go into Rome but to exploring other villages and there is a great lake nearby as well. The family especially enjoyed our last night dinner that the Casale organized for us, it was like our own private restaurant.

“This is a fabulous place to have a family reunion”
Reviewed 22 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Casale Soninno is a lovely villa overlooking Rome. St. Paul's dome is visible on clear days. We were a party of four couples and a single and we were very comfortable. A good breakfast was included and I paid extra for three excellent dinners including an eightieth birthday party for my wife held on the terrace with many additional guests. To avoid driving into Rome there is a surbuban train station a five minute drive awy with trains taking about 20 minutes into Rome Termini. Our host George Treves did a magnificent job in looking after us. All in all, it enabled us to have an outstanding family reunion.
