The Casale Sonnino sits on a hilltop that once belonged to the Roman Senator Caius Julius Cornutus Tertullus in 100 AD. Traces of his ancient residence, including fragments of columns and walls, have emerged from the soil to enhance the ambiance of the garden. The cistern of the ancient villa lies in the Casale's basement, and features a Roman well, Roman arches, and a system of 12th-century caves. Make sure to ask your host for a tour of this unique underworld during your stay! On the main floor, life revolves around the fully-equipped country kitchen. Meals and gatherings of family and friends happen in the expansive living/dining room, which features a working marble fireplace, gorgeous crystal chandelier, and seating for 14. Upstairs sits four double-occupancy bedrooms, a vestibule bedroom, library with beds, and two bathrooms. With a glass of wine in hand, unwind on the oversized rooftop terrace, which boasts 180 degree views that stretch from Rome to the Apennine Mountains. It’s the perfect spot for stargazing over the eternal city, playing a game of ping pong, or doing nothing at all. With Rome so near, you can tour Saint Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican Museum, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon and the Spanish Steps during the day, and then be back at the Casale by nightfall. Enjoy local shopping and dining in the nearby towns of Monte Porzio Catone, Colonna, and Frascati, or head to renowned historical sites like Tivoli Gardens & Villa d'Este, Tusculum, Hadrian's Villa and Rome's ancient port, Ostia Antica. Naples and Florence are popular day trips traveling by train from Rome's Termini station. For more adventures, take day trips to the Lazio coast, Umbria, Tuscany and Abruzzo. More

George and his staff made us feel right at home, provided delicious breakfasts, and helped with many questions about local sites, restaurants, and travel logistics. Sunset dinners we made and enjoyed on the rooftop terrace made for special evenings.

I am so glad that you came to the Casale after so many years of enjoying our extra virgin olive oil. Thinking of your mom and my mom, passing their friendship and love for special places along to the next generation. Come back again soon.

Our last 2 trips to Italy were filled with amazing sights and events. Staying at Casale Sonnino gave us the ability to explore regions and get the best out of Rome! This is a must do destination! Can’t wait to return.

About the neighbourhood
The Casale is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, and is privately located at the end of a long cobblestone driveway and wrought iron gate. The 'FS' at the top of the gate stands for our great, great uncles/grandfather, the 'Fratelli Sonnino' who owned the vineyard 100 years ago. Our small town, Monte Porzio Catone is a 1K walk from our gate. There you can find your cappuccino and breakfast danish, gelato, pizza fresh out of the oven, restaurants, ATM machine, a playground for small children and small grocery and vegetable stores. Frascati, a thriving regional destination, is located 3 kilometers away and has trendy stores, numerous excellent restaurants, parks and its cultural centerpiece: The Villa Aldobrandini.
Getting around
The Casale Sonnino is conveniently located off of the Rome-Naples Highway A-1 which runs Southeast of the city. It takes 30 minutes to get into Rome-Termini station (Central Rome) by the train at Colle Mattia, a station about 1K from our Villa or Frascati, 3K from the Casale. There is parking for your car at Colle Mattia (free) and Frascati (fee). There is ample parking at the Casale for you and your family/friends. It is most convenient to go into Rome by train. You can walk 1K up the hill to our town of Monte Porzio Catone. For all other nearby towns, sightseeing, restaurants and day tripping, you will want a car. I will be happy to recommend the car rental company that I use - it's reliable and reasonable!
