Villa d’Oro is set in the quiet green countryside of northern Lazio. This 16th century villa has been home to members of the present owners’ family for over three hundred years. More recently, Julia Roberts spent a month at Villa d’Oro while filming “Eat Pray Love”.
Villa d’Oro lies in the heart of the Viterbo countryside, just an hour’s drive from Rome; there is also direct rail service. A wealth of daytrip possibilities is within half an hour by car, including San Martin al Cimino and the old city of Viterbo, both just one kilometer from the villa. Discover Villa Farnese and the unique gardens of the Villa Lante. Children will be delighted by the extraordinary Parco dei Mostri (Park of Monsters) in nearby Bomarzo. Explore Etruscan tombs or visit vineyards and wineries. The towns of southern Tuscany and Umbria are accessible; Siena and Assisi are 80 kilometers (50 miles) away. Orvieto is a thirty minute drive, and the nearest shops and conveniences can be found just two kilometers away in San Martino.
Originally a country farmhouse, the villa has been restored to a high level of elegance while respecting the original structure and materials. Now it is a graceful and welcoming home. Follow the private drive through the villa’s picturesque grounds, planted with olive and lemon trees. Surrounding the house is a beautiful garden, and nearby, on a grassy terrace, is an “infinity” pool with a panoramic view over the hills of Lazio.
The main villa sleeps 10+1. For larger groups, there are additional rooms in the adjacent Casale, which has been recently renovated and can be rented to sleep 6-8 additional guests.

All roads lead to Rome...…and when in Rome do as Romans do…..

As they say, a life time is not long enough in Rome ‘Non basta una vita a Roma’.  If you have 5 days in Rome, it is best you choose what is most important for you to see, and see these properly rather than trying to run around madly and see everything.

From the Trevi fountain and the Spanish steps to the colosseum, from the Vatican and the Sistine chapel, to the Basilica, the Foreum to the pantheon, where does one start in Rome?
