In the past, this large estate belonged the Pope’s family, now it is owned by an aristocratic Roman family. The trees, the trimmed hedges and the avenues of trees are reminiscent of times gone by. Two other villas complete the estate: one is an old villa, rarely visited at weekends and on a 400 metres distance from Casa Dogna. The other, villa Lupo, with a distance of 1 kilometre from Dogna, may also be rented together with Dogna to provide space for a group of up to 16 guests. Due to the distances between the villas, you have absolute privacy .
Each villa also has its own outdoor areas and private gardens. the distances are such, that neither of the other two villas can be seen from this villa rental.
This charming small house has a private swimming pool and a tennis court which is shared between the guests of this property and the very rare visitors to the other villas. The villa is within easy reach of the motorway, in fact only a 20 minutes drive. This large estate really is a green paradise at the gates of Rome!
