About Elisa and Hans
We, my husband Hans-Hermann (German, artist and biologist) and myself, Elisa (Italian, art and garden curator) are multilingual and multicultural and we love sharing the enchantment of this place with our guests. We are professionally involved in the arts - visual, audiovisual and nature , and we consider our garden a form of work of art. We are very proud of our new solar system on the main roof, a sign of our ecological engagement and of the sustainable management of our garden, listed as Il Giardino di Pianamola among 'The most beautiful parks ' of Italy.
Elisa and Hans purchased this Villa in 1993
Why Elisa and Hans chose Bassano Romano
At first sight we fell in love with the stunning view and the landscape, and we think we had an incredible luck finding a piece of natural paradise from where you can reach Rome and two International airports in less than one hour.
What makes this Villa unique
Peace, sun, breeze, nature, close to everything you need for a memorable vacation ( Rome, the lakes and the coast, hundreds of destinations, restaurants) , and when you are in our garden you are away from all what you do not wish to have around (noise, crowds, pollution, etc.)

An idyllic base for exploring Rome and its countryside
Hans-Hermann and Elisa have put years of hard work into making their large, completely private land in the hills above Lake Bracciano a paradise. It's location makes it ideal for anyone wanting to be able to enjoy Rome during the day and escape to a peace and solitude at night. (Or, for that matter, to explore rural Lazio and southern Umbria and Tuscany.) The house is spotless and equipped with everything that's needed. Nearby stores are very well stocked. The kitchen is on the small side but quite serviceable for preparing multi-course dinners for four from scratch. The owners are ready to provide anything from items you forgot to pack to suggestions on local sights. Both are fixtures in the local (and well beyond) art scenes, and the decorating of the home and installations in the gardens reflect this. Those gardens are beautiful, as is the swimming pool and its site. We couldn't have been more pleased with the accuracy of the VRBO descriptions, the quality of the accommodations and the hospitality of the owners.
When guests write such a deep appreciation of our place we are really touched and it is the best reward for our efforts. Thank you so much for your personal and warm perception of the landscape and the location. You were wonderful guests, open to explore and exploit the potentiality of our place, we hope to have you back soon, maybe in Spring or Summer!
The perfect place to relax and unwind
Pianamola is a wonderful retreat. Words cannot do the amazing garden justice - so many places to sit and relax and just take in the beautiful views. We brought the summer with us so the pool was well used, as were the many shady spots to get out of the sun. The accommodation has everything you could need and Elisa and Hans Hermann are the most lovely hosts - nothing is too much trouble and they go out of their way to ensure their guests have a great holiday.
There are lots of lovely places to visit within a short drive - although the local roads (even fairly major ones) are narrow and have lots of large holes which doesn't seem to effect the local drivers, but English drivers in hire cars may want to consider the all-inclusive insurance to keep the stress down!!
We have had a fantastic holiday - thank you Elisa and Hans Hermann for sharing your beautiful home.

Thank you for your appreciation! and you are right, roads are indeed a little adventorous in Italy, but that's the peculiarity that makes them so fascinating! One has to drive slowly and I believe you did not have any accident or mechanical inconveneince...and once you reach up hill the view makes up for the effort!
A time to recharge
My husband & I stayed here for a week in early January 2016. We needed a place to "recharge our batteries" after a very busy Christmas/New Year period with our large Italian family. Pianamola was definitely the right place. The beauty and peace of this area has to be experienced. Although it was cold outside, we were kept snug and warm inside with the wood-burning stove. There are many walks in the surrounding countryside and Rome is easily accessed by train if you need the hustle and bustle. Elisa & Hans-Hermann's garden is an amazing creation - a work of art. This place was perfect for us at that stage in our journey and we thank Elisa & Hans-Hermann for their endless kindness.
Wonderful guests who have captured the beauty and the uniqueness of the location and its surroundings! Thank you! We are looking forward to welcoming you soon again next time you are in Europe.
Fantastische plek !
Zeer mooie plek om lekker te relaxen nadat we een week Rome hadden bezocht: geweldige tuin met een imposant uitzicht op het meer, fijn huis met prima voorzieningen ( een beste keuken! ). Elisa en Hans zijn de ideale gastvrouw en gastheer: geven je info over de omgeving en hun tuin met groente en kruiden die je lekker vers kan plukken. Mooie herinneringen houden we over aan ons verblijf in pianamola.
Grazie di tutto!
Grazie a voi! Thanks to you! Great guests, it would be so nice to welcome you again, and meanwhile we promise to learn some Dutch...
My family had a wonderful time this summer at Pianamola. The house and the amazing garden around it, was a true treasure. Elisa and Hans give us a warm welcome and helped us to get around. We made day trips to places near by and, of course, visited Rome. I absolutely want to come back some day and enjoy the peaceful country life in the middle of the italian sun again. My children said that this was the best holiday ever!
We are so happy to have Finnish guests who appreciate so much our garden, house and location. They were all simply marvellous and we wish to welcome them soon again.
We had wonderful holidays!
Es waren wunderbare entspannende Tage bei Hans und Elisa, wir hatten allen Komfort und dennoch unsere Abgeschiedenheit und Ruhe, die wir brauchten!
Vielen Dank dafür! Die Bilder von der Natur und von oben auf den See sind noch in unseren Köpfen und erleichtern den Alltag in Deutschland!
Thank you for recognising a long lasting effect for your just over 2 weeks holiday in our paradise! Es ist schoen zu hoeren, dass sich unsere Gaeste lange an unser Haus und Garten erinnern und die Erhohlung mit in den Alltag nehmen.
