Overview

Since its construction in 312BC the via Appia has led south-eastwards from Rome into a splendidly lush and hilly area dotted with small lakes, known today as the Colli Albani. Well-heeled Romans come here to escape the city’s bustle and heat and explore the thirteen Castelli Romani, lovely old villages that evolved from medieval castles. Villa delle Lance is nestled between two of these: Castel Gandolfo, where the Pope has his summer residence, and flower-filled Genzano, with its caffès and restaurants. As peaceful as the setting is, a direct train line makes the centre of Rome accessible within minutes. The villa was built by a famous Italian architect of the 1950s, whose clever design includes open loggias and west-facing terraces that capture the breezes and wonderful views as far as the sea. The lowest terrace is occupied by a large swimming pool. Inside, the rooms are simple but nicely decorated in a blend of contemporary furnishings and antiques, and all living areas on the lower two floors open to the loggias or garden.

Beautiful views and lovely gardens with lots of different areas to sit and eat out or just enjoy the view.

We really have enjoyed our stay in this wonderful villa. Even thought the pool was too cold this time of year the weather has been quite good. We spent one day in Rome which was great and would recommend to see the small town Nemi and check out the restaurant Pagnanelli in Castel Gandolfo, service and food world class. Now its back to winter in Norway.

Had a wonderful week enjoying the lovely gardens pool and house Villa delle Lance. Plenty of relaxation and some culture including a trip to Villa Adriano (Hadrians Villa) and Villa Gandolfo, both worth visiting. Genzano town is good to stroll through and for a good coffee and to people watch. Everyone very friendly and claudio most welcoming on our arrival plus Marco readily available at the end of the phone. All in all a great time spent here.

We loved the location of Villa delle Lance. Genzano is just close enough to enjoy Rome, but just far away to be quaint and picturesque.
