From One Stop Italy:

Great news I read in the Sunday Times that the exterior walls of the  Colosseum in Rome are to be restored and cleaned at a cost of £18m. The monument will also be permanently illuminated. The project will start later this year and last about 12 months.

Please contact us here for details of our accommodation in Rome and the Lazio countryside. Many of our clients stay in farmhouse apartments or villas by a convenient railway station within travelling distance of  Rome. This way they get to journey in and out of Rome for day trips without the hassle of driving and parking in the city. Plus they can enjoy the beautiful countryside of Lazio in a property with a swimming pool.

Rielli, just 60 km from Rome via train or bus

Although most of our villa rentals run from Saturday – Saturday we have a good selection offering arrivals and departures any day of the week. This is particularly the case outside of July and August. This is great as it means you can take advantage of cheaper flights either side  of the weekend. A minimum of 7 nights rental is required.

For more details please check out our webpage on weekday holiday starts

From One Stop Italy:

From talking to our Italian villa rental customers we know that many like to take advantage of flights from low cost airlines. But getting the best price deals often means arriving at the departure airport very early in the morning or sometimes arriving on a late evening flight in Italy.  Not good news! For both these scenarios we have the ideal solution. Staying in an airport hotel overnight means that either way you’ll begin your villa holiday on a happier note, as you’ll be less tired.

When we heard of this new online hotel booking service which allows our customers to compare prices across a large range of suppliers, we thought we would include it on our website.

  • Search to compare rooms and prices quickly from several hotel reservation websites. When you find the room you like, just click to book online directly with the hotel supplier. It’s that easy!
  • Search for accommodation not just in Italy but in the UK, most of Europe, South Africa and Australia. Hotel prices are displayed in a list and their location is shown on a map to help you find hotels in the right location and at the lowest rates.
  • Ideal not just for airport hotels, but also for adding a few nights in say Rome, Venice, Florence or wherever after your villa holiday.
  • Or if you’re driving to and from Europe, use it to book your hotel stays en-route.

We hope you find the facility helpful and look forward to hearing your feedback.
