Rome, Province of Rome, Lazio
Set on a hillside overlooking Lake Albano this little independent studio is ideal for a couple or single person who wishes to experience Italy outside the usual hotel/guesthouse environment. It is a peaceful location of natural beauty only 30 minutes from central Rome. The balcony, with table and chairs for eating outside al fresco, overlooks the lake and provides a peaceful setting for a quiet drink before dinner with the lights around the lake shining below.

The English owner lives nearby and is happy to make herself available if necessary for help and advice. Castel Gandolfo is a friendly little town, famous for its Papal connections, with a pedestrian only central piazza ideal for a quiet cappuccino or a glass of wine as you watch the world go by. Ciampino airport, serving Ryanair flights, is only 15 minutes away by car.
