Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
SPECIAL OFFER DURING HALF TERM HOLIDAYS (4 OCTOBER-4 NOVEMBER 2014): Stay at our villa and participate for one day in olive picking and one trip to the local "frantoio" where you can watch the process of olive pressing.

The house is placed on top of a hill, from your windows you can enjoy the Lepini mountains on the east, the mount Artemisio on the north, the Circeo promontory on the south and vineyards and olive groves all around you.

The Lazio region
The ideal destination for everybody. Beautiful weather combined with stunning surroundings make for the ideal holiday getaway!
With so much to see and do in the area you will never get bored!
At three kilometers from the centre of Velletri and only 40 kilometers from the centre of Rome, situated on top of a hill surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and vegetable plots, Chez Raz is an ideal holiday location for visitors of all tastes.
The surrounding area offers many possibilities for those who enjoy the outdoors and nature: characteristic villages and towns can be found perched on the nearby Lepini mountain range (Rocca Massima, Cori, Sermoneta, Segni); natural parkland and lakes are within ten to thirty minutes drive (The Regional Park of the Castelli Romani with the Monte Artemisio summit and the Lepini mountain range with the Monte Lupone summit) offering even sports lovers ample opportunities for nature treks on foot or MTB; for lovers of the sun, sand and salt water, we are situated a convenient distance from the best beaches of the central Lazio coastline (Circeo, Sabaudia, and further to the south Sperlonga and Terracina); at not more than twenty minutes in the car, you can find the lakes of Castel Gandolfo and Nemi; otherwise, lose yourselves on an enogastronomic adventure from town to town in the Castelli Romani (Genzano, Ariccia, Albano, Rocca di Papa).
The centre of Rome can be reached in 50 minutes on the train or about one hour by car.
For those who simply want a place to relax, from May to October, guests can make use of the secluded swimming pool, deck loungers, outside eating areas and barbeque on the premises.

"A gem in the Italian countryside"
We stayed at Chez Raz at the end of July into August with our three children aged 11, 15 and 18. The accommodation was clean and comfortable with lots of space. The owners were very friendly and extre… More

"Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour à tous points de vues."
Chez RAZ est situé dans un bel écrin de verdure. C'est un endroit paisible, bien entretenu, simple et très confortable à la fois, qui invite à la détente. Le supermarché le plus proche se situe à moins de 10 mn en voiture.
Paola est parfaite, très accueillante et discrète, elle se rend disponible pour échanger avec ses invités et les guider, s'ils le souhaitent. Par ailleurs elle parle plusieurs langues.
Nous sommes venu en couple avec un enfant de 6 ans et un ado de 16 ans. Nous avons tous apprécié nos vacances chez Raz. L'appartement dispose du WIFI. Une piscine et des jeux (trampoline, baby-foot, tennis de table) sont à disposition.

"Friendly + helpful hosts, terrific area and very relaxing"
We loved our stay with Paola and her family. The appartment is very comfortable and you have a large orchard/garden to roam in. We had our breakfast beneath a canopy of grape vines every morning and used the pool every afternoon. The view of the mountains and the town of Velletri is beautiful almost always, but particularly early in the morning and at night when you wee the lights twinkling. I really enjoyed the very relaxed atmosphere and Paula's helpfulness. She offered tomotoes from her garden, which we used along with herbs from the garden to make spectacular sauce for our fresh pasta, bought in the nearby store. You can get almost anything at this store very cheaply. I didn't think I'd want to cook on my vacation, but we ended up cooking most of our meals, since it was so inexpensive to shop for wonderful produce, cheese and even meat in the area. It is so convenient to have Velletri around the corner with its cafe's, shops and very nice parks. We visited Rome by train and I am so glad that we didn't try to drive. The train was a lot of fun and you got to see the country side too. There are so many small, wonderful towns/villages to discover in the area.

Table tennis/tablefootball, plus collection of animals on site - bella and nutella the donkeys, chicho the hedgehog, Snoopy and Puppy the dogs. Private/peaceful spot, very clean accommodation - you must sample Paulas cooking!! The MacRaes

"The best ever stay in an Italian B&B"
The welcoming we received from Paola was wonderful. The mini apartment was perfect for myself, husband and daughter. Paola was very attentive and helped recommend an excellent resturant in Cori. The pool was perfect to cool down after the heat. The area in very rural with two donkeys, chickens and dogs. I would stay you MUST have a car! It was unsafe to walk anywhere because there are no sidewalks and the Italian drivers go out their way to try and get really close to you when you walk. If you brave the walk there is a supermarket, bread shop, resturant very close by. We went to rome by train which took 1 hour and had a lovely meal in lake Nemi.
