I have spent a week in Casa Rinaldi in June 2017 and would deeply recommend it to everyone who is eager to experience the authentic Italian dolce vita. The villa is stunningly beautiful in a nice little and quite town called Poggio Mirteto, 40 min north from Rome by train. It's a perfect suit for the travellers who want to see new unexplored places without a lot of tourists. The property is amazing, it has a huge park. The villa hat its own charming old look from the outside, but is very well maintained and renovated from the inside. The rooms are comfortable, charming and tidy. The owners are very nice, simply amazing people, they will be happy to advise you on many things you could do in the area. The Rieti region has a lot to offer, charming old cities on top of hills, monasterys, delicious cuisine, wine and olive oil. I will definately come back.
I was at this villa in august. It was perfect vacation in Romantic place. Fresh air, quiet, beautiful view, nature and Italian house food. Very good place for relax and meditation, owner was very nice and attentive. Not far to Rome.
I stayed in the villa mid July and it was very healthy & treasure few days during my trip in Italy.
The town is located in an accessible area from Rome but has a very calm and peaceful ambiance without mas-tourists.
There are several small villages with Romen classic atmosphere and they'll be great excursions. The villa is very beautiful and relaxing place to stay and the morning breeze from a window gives you a special vacation experience!
Nice gastronomy especially wine was fantastic :)
I've been here 2 times at spring and summer time and will return back again and again. It's a big house with a very interesting history. Beautiful nature around the building. Fresh air, quit environment. 5 minutes from the center of the town with a lot of caffe, restaurants (food is fresh and very delicious there) and little shops. 10 minutes by car to the train stop in order to get to Rome (about 40 min) or to airport (without any traffic) - less expensive way. Owners of the house very kind and polite people. They can always help you to organize your journey. Next time I will try Yoga classes on the roof. I think it will be perfect! Only good emotions from my visits!
I had a terrific experience at Villa Casa Rinaldi. I usually stay in the popular modern hotel chains, wasn't sure what to expect from 1905 villa. And experience exceeded all my expectations: beautiful accommodation, breath taking view (!), very professional and friendly host, convenient location.
My favorite part was the opportunity to learn Italian culture. At this location you can breath in "real Italy". Thanks to the owners, I also had a privilege to discover and experience the best restaurants and attractions known only to the local people.
I will recommend this place to my friends and family. Thank you Mr. & Ms. Rinaldi for your excellent hospitality.
