The Lazio region
Lazio is a region rich with cultural activities, ancient history, gorgeous nature and wonderful food. Il Sogno is perfectly positioned so you can make the most of your vacation with the least travel time to Rome's historical centre (30 minutes by train, the stop is five minutes away), the volcanic lakes, ruins such as Ostia Antica, Hadrian's Villa, Villa D'Este, Roman catacombs and Etruscan necropoli, quaint medieval towns and ancient settlements.
Il Sogno is a five-minute drive from the old “borgo” of Cesano, a medieval town, originally settled by the Etruscans. There are other medieval towns with castles, such as Bracciano and Isola Farnese, within a short drive as well as the beautiful “borgos” of Campagnano, Anguillara, Calcata and the city of Viterbo, located within its ancient walls.
The area is full of Etruscan ruins (Cerveteri, Veio), and boasts hot springs such as Stimigliano and Le Terre dei Papi, all within a 10-30 minute drive. The world-renowned Olgiata golf course is 4 km away, the Parco di Roma Golf Club is 25 minutes drive, and both the Parco dei Medici Golf Club in Rome and the Golf Club le Querce in Sutri are 35 minutes away. We are also just 30 minutes away from Rome's most famous beach.
That being said, many of our guests have a hard time tearing themselves away from our private paradise. It is nice to have the option of just staying home, reading a book from our library by the pool, playing croquet on a manicured lawn, picking your fruits and vegetables from our gardens and then grilling on your private terrace and watching the sun set over the Roman countryside while you enjoy what may well be your best vacation ever.
Il Sogno is in the heart of Etruria and borders on Veio Park, the Sorbo Valley and Martignano-Bracciano Park. While located within Rome city limits and close to shopping, trains, and other city amenities, Il Sogno has a tranquil countryside setting.
We border on Rome's Lake District, which is surrounded by unspoiled park land where golf, fishing, hiking, biking, horseback riding, nature walks and birding are year-round activities. In the crystal-clear waters of Bracciano and Martignano, only electric motors are allowed, and both places abound with sailboats, kayaks, peddle boats for rent. Il Sogno's own kayak is on a beach at Lake Bracciano for guest use.
The other volcanic lakes, Vico and Bolsena, are worth a visit as well, and make a nice day trip, especially if you stop along the way at the small town festivals, antique shops and Etruscan ruins.
We are happy to share our favourite hikes, hidden roads to Etruscan and Roman ruins and programs for what we think is an ideal day in an idyllic setting. We can even provide you with a picnic lunch with fruit and vegetables from our garden, cheese from the nearby farm and local wines!
