Near Rome, a character home in a hilltop town with private pool and garden is a rare and special treat. This house dates back to 12th century, but is now fully modernized. It is spacious and elegant, and has a living room/dining room, a fully-equipped kitchen, and two bedrooms, each with modern baths. Bedrooms offer Peignoirs and fine soaps. Its shady garden is deliciously scented by the blossoms of ancient orange and lemon trees. Enjoy cooking Italian style in the garden’s own pizza oven and outdoor grill, then settle in and enjoy your meal at the stone outdoor table. Sun bathing by the pool, swimming, or lying in the hammock , are also recommended!

An unforgettable experience in the mild climate of this historic town and area, only twenty minutes from great beaches, and a half hour train ride from Rome, awaits you. The owners, who formerly owned an acclaimed Chateau-hotel in France, have brought with them a certain flare and experience as well as fine French antiques.

The Lazio region

Sermoneta sits atop a foothill of the Lepino Mountain Range parallel to the ancient Pontine marshes, and with views of the glorious Mediterranean sea, a short drive away. A half hour’s train ride from Rome, or an hour and a half by car along the ancient Appian Way; a trip to Sermoneta is a pleasure in itself. Great beaches and beach resorts only 20 minutes away are an added bonus.

The town has changed little since its medieval conception, and the enormous fortress of Caetani Castle looms over and dominants the town and the valley below. The castle is now run by the Roffredo Caetani Foundation, which was created by Lelia Caetani in honour of her illustrious family. Today, the castle hosts courses, seminars, and prestigious concerts. In July, there are concerts in the castle by well-known contemporary musicians and orchestras.

Open air restaurants and bars make for easy summer living. Winters in cosy interiors are an equal delight.


The villages offers year around Festas, and in particular in the month of May, there are concerts every weekend, as well as art exhibits, painting classes for children and much more.

Open air restaurants and bars make for easy summer living. Winters in cosy interiors are an equal delight.

There is a medieval Festa of the Madonna di Vittoria in October, a Polenta festival in January, and other magical events all year long.

"wunderschöne, malerische Stadt"

Sermoneta ist eine atemberaunde, auf einem Berg gelegene Stadt mit wunderschönen Gassen die im Abendlicht märchenhaft erscheinen. Die Bougainville, Jasmin, und früchtetragenden Zitrusbäume geben d… More

Thank you for writing. We are delighted that you enjoyed your holiday and almost everything about the house and beautiful Sermoneta. We are sorry that you did not enjoy the custom wool padded mattress, much appreciated in France and Italy, since they cushion and conform to each sleeper. Almost all of our other Guests have appreciated it, as I do. I should add that the other mattresses in the house are conventional and quite firm, so there is a choice. All best wishes.

"Helt fantastiskt!"

Vår familj hade en fantastisk vecka i Sermoneta och i "Domus Doull".
Ägarna, Adrian och Susan var mycket hjälpsamma och delade med sig av goda råd om sevärdheter, restauranger och stränder. Poolen var välanvänd av barnen och det behövdes i värmen.
Det är inte bara närheten till stränder och Rom gör denna plats till en liten pärla, Sermoneta i sig är en underbar plats. Vi åker gärna tillbaka.
//Andreas med familj.

We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your time in Sermoneta, and appreciated the Village as well as the house. We are delighted that you want to come. You were delightful guests to meet and know.

"Beautiful place in magical village"

What a gorgeous place Sermoneta is. I am not sure I would have ever visited that region of Italy without finding your place on the website. There were so many wonderful surprises at every turn, and we loved that it was not too crowded. We were very happy to be tucked in at the beautiful and charming Domus Doull, where we spent one full day lazing around the pool, and countless hours reading, napping and soaking it all up. While we were very happy there, we ventured out a little, too. The lunch I had in San Felice Circeo was a highlight. Our trip to Sperlonga was glorious, and it is where we learned about Lucano --- a lesson we enjoyed very much! Thanks to your directions, the drive back to Rome on the Via Appia resulted in more great views and food at Lake Albano.

We really could not have asked for a more beautiful place or a more magical village to visit. Thanks so much.

It was truly a pleasure to share our wonderful part of Italy with someone so interested in discovering its many treasures. We hope that one day Sermoneta will lure you back.
