Casa Drake is a two floor apartement of about 110 square meters (s.m.), in a very quiet and relaxing context as it is part of a 360 s.m. villa, with a garden of over 3500 s.m., in an exclusive condo in the Ancient Appia's Park, just minutes away (14 km) from the heart of Rome.
On the first floor, there is a master bedroom with a bathroom and a small fridge, a small mezzanine single bedroom is right next to it; the ground floor consists of a living room, with a beatiful fireplace and three sofa beds; a dining room; a fully equipped kitchen with fridge, firestove, dishwasher, electric oven and microwave; the exterior consists of a front porch with approximately 800 s.m. of private garden with a barbeque, ping pong table and 'biliardino' (table-football).
Clean bed and table linen, dishes, towels and basic groceries will be available for free.
Heating, wifi, satellite TV (SKY) and air conditioning are included.
You will be able to use the condo's 5 on 5 soccer field and the tennis court year round and the condo's swimming pool during the summer.
The condo has a year round watchperson and there is a professional private nightwatch during the summer.
We, the owners, live in a separate apartment on a lower floor and are available for info, assistance and problem solving. We share the same main entrance, not the appartment one, just the gate.
Even though Casa Drake is well connected to the Laurentina subway station (one of Rome's main hubs) which is reachable with bus 720 in approximately 15 mins (the bus stop is 50 meters from the house), it is ideal to travel by car both to reach us and to go out. We can reserve a car for you if necessary at one of the rent-a-car's in Ciampino airport. You can comfortably park your own car inside the condo.
Besides all of Rome's well known and eternal wonders, there are plenty of landmarks nearby, including: the Ancient Appian Way and Park, the Divino Amore Sanctuary, the Catacombs of San Sebastiano, San Calisto and Santa Domitilla, the Tomb of Cecilia Metella, Golf Courses, Riding Stables,Tennis Clubs, the lake of Albano, Castel Gandolfo and the Castelli Romani.
Ciampino Airport is only 3 km's away and Fiumicino Airport is about 30-45 mins away, if your are travelling by car, we are very close to the Ardeatina G.R.A. exit.
Supermarkets, bars and restaurants are only 5 mins away.
All pets are welcome, we love animals and have 2 adorable dogs (in our separate garden) and cats.
For those who aren't only interested in experiencing and savouring our culture and cuisine in the many unforgettable restaurants Rome and it's surroundings have to offer, we give you the possibility to reserve a special dinner with our very own Chef, Francesco 'Bonzo' Civita.
And for those of you who would like to take some of our culinary culture back home with them, we also give you the unique option to organize and take part in professional courses in home made Italian cuisine with Chef Bonzo himself during your stay at Casa Drake.
We welcome you, please let us know if you have any special requests, like cradles, extra beds, bicycle rental etc or other.
