“A heavenly retreat from busy Rome!!”
Reviewed May 4, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Stayed at the property for four nights at the end of April with my parents. Selected Altavista based on the location and property photo's and it didn't disappoint.

Jennifer; the owner was so helpful, more so than I've ever experienced before. She collected us from the station, gave us lots of information on Palestrina and even dropped us to and from the station on the day we went to Rome to sightsee! The property is very well equipped for cooking and was spotlessly clean. The balcony was plenty big enough for the 3 of us and got lots of use due the fabulous weather we encountered for the duration of our stay.

The location is at the top of a hill which means lots of steps if you're on foot (we didn't have a hire car) however the views are fantastic and we enjoyed the opportunity to walk off our dinner each night after far too much pasta and gelato!! If you were staying for longer I would recommend getting a hire car simply because the bus service isn't very frequent or reliable and there aren't really any taxi firms to use. Rome Termini station was a quick 30 mins by train from Zagarolo which allowed for a full day sightseeing!

There are some lovely restaurants in the town and there is a big supermarket about 10-15 mins walk from the villa plus a grocery shop and other amenities. Internet isn't available in the villa itself yet but there is a town wifi that Jennifer supplies the password to so should you need to it's possible to get online just a short distance from the house.

Overall a fantastic stay with a lovely host - would definitely stay there again!
