As you wander the carefully-landscaped gardens surrounding the house and castle, a sense of hushed splendour will transport you back to the dawn of this villa’s ancient history. The tumbling, wisteria-clad ruins of the ancient castle, built in the twelfth century, loom over the neat green lawns and fragrant borders of a traditional English garden, complete with elegant furnished terraces perfect for afternoon tea with an Italian twist. Wild flower gardens surround the ruins of an old church. These are crossed by trickling streams and dotted with caves and grottos to explore. The meandering remains of the original tower and its surroundings hold several surprises. These include a secret garden with a pond of water lilies and a beautiful swimming pool nestled inside the walls of the ancient castle itself.
Furthermore the property is situated only 5 minutes from a nearby tennis court, and guests can enjoy horse riding within the 500-hectare park of the estate.
This Rome countryside luxury villa is located about fifty kilometres from Rome. It is one of the most magical and exclusive properties in Italy. A stunning castle and estate tucked away between the medieval towns of Cori, Velletri and Cisterna di Latina, this luxurious villa is truly a fairytale come to life. This 510-hectare property is nestled in woodland, and has a fascinating history. Roman ruins are dotted across the estate, and the medieval castle was first noted in the 1102 papal bull. It passed through the hands of some of Italy’s most famous (and infamous) noble families. This includes the Borgia and the Borghese. Prince Carlo Caracciolo then renovated it in the 1990s.
This beautiful villa and estate is convenient for visits to many stunning natural attractions too. It is close to the Circeo National Park that follows the coastline of Lazio, taking in Anzio and Terracina. Finally the nearby and world-renowned Giardini di Ninfa are utterly breathtaking, designed in a similar style to the estate’s own gardens, and their ethereal beauty is the perfect backdrop for a summer picnic.
Included in the rental price is daily cleaning of the villa as well as exclusivity of the entire estate. Butler services, chef services and a chauffeur can be requested at an extra charge.
