The Anson family were such gracious hosts. They were so helpful in sharing the best things to do in the city. And their beautiful estate and garden was a lovely contrast from the hustle and bustle of Rome!!

I stayed at Villa Silj for a month and could not have had a better time. It is close enough to Rome where I could spend the day in the bustling city center, yet come home to a quiet beautiful oasis. I was able to read and write while watching the beautiful sun set behind the trees. There is also...

I came to stay at the villa for one week whilst traveling to Italy, within days of arrival I had fallen in love with the property and the family and extended my stay to three weeks. The villa is approx 30 min from Roma Termini using public transport. Very easy to access by catching the train to Prima Porta and...

From the booking of the Villa to the completion of the stay, the visit and the service was amazing and extremely accommodating. Our group consisted of 28 people, 14 families, and the villa was large enough to accommodate our group very comfortably and provided us a memorable, quite, and comfortable stay. The Villa owners worked with us weeks prior to...

We stayed for around 2 weeks. We loved it, and would recommend it very highly for certain types of travelers, especially families or people who are staying a while and are not in a hurry to see everything in Rome in 3 days. There's a lot going on here, so this will be a long review. I want to associate...

We stayed here end of September. It is a perfect place if you want to combine your visits to Rome with some leisure-time in the garden (nice little pool!) The accomodation had a country-like charm: no design, nothing fancy, but everything you'll need is there. Including fast wifi! If you have a car you can simply drive to a nearbij...

We were only 10km from Rome, so could commute very easily to see the attractions in the centre, then get back to this blissfully quiet place, where hardly any traffic sounds can be heard. It feels like the real countryside, yet unbelievable so close to a big metropolis. The garden is beautiful, and Bernard, it`s owner was happy to give...

It was an honour to stay Villa Silj, Rome and our hosts were incredibly accommodating. Like the great city, the villa, the land and the family have a fascinating history. The site is kept to a high standard and your hosts will really look after you.
