About Lucia Orlandini
My name is Lucia, I love my native city and I’m proposing a house very dear to me that is the house where I have always lived and that I love. A real house of a true Roman family. I think that Rome is a wonderful city and that can offer you all what you are looking for.
Why Lucia Orlandini chose Zona LI La Storta
I would describe myself as a guest respectful of other people's houses and reliable and I would love to host guests with the same priorities.

This property is lovely, it is a short train ride away from Rome and after a day of walking and touring Rome, it was wonderful to come back to this lovely home. The property is large and lush with olive trees, orange trees, lots of herbs and a huge yard that is very well tended. This is a beautiful area outside to just sit and relax. We had breakfast outside and started planning our day while just taking in the beautiful surroundings.
Lucia is so gracious and responded very quickly to any questions I had.
I would come back to this home again.
This villa was the perfect place for 10 people The A/C worked well, even on very hot days. The kitchen was easy to use and the towels for the bathrooms were luxurious. This was an easy place to find, located directly off the highway and was located very close to the train into Rome. I highly recommend staying here. We will be back.
We spent 5 glorious days in this home, using a car to explore some of the areas surrounding Rome (Ostia Antica, Cerveteri, Palestrina, etc.). The location, first of all, is perfect. It is quite easy to access the GRA (ring road around Rome), but you are far enough into the countryside to enjoy the peace and quiet. Everything that you need can be found in the nearby town of La Storta. The only difficulty in the location is that GPS seems to have a mental block concerning the location--we ended up just mapping everything using the nearby tennis club as our home point, because otherwise we'd end up with REALLY strange directions. Our hostess, luckily, had warned us about this issue, so we were prepared.
The property itself is simply gorgeous. This rental, so far as I can tell, is about 1/3 of a much larger house, but it has been divided up in such a way that you don't feel the presence of the neighbors--walls are thick, there are hedges and fences dividing the areas, and each portion of the building has its own yard, drive, etc. There are two friendly dogs next door, one of whom kept escaping to come and visit us, which was delightful for our son.
We really loved having all the orange and olive trees, and fresh garden herbs (took advantage of some sage and rosemary in our cooking). They also made the place really lovely and welcoming. When all the shutters are open, there are huge french doors that look over everything, so the place is filled with light. The kitchen is roomy and welcoming, a great place to cook dinner for a big group.
This was a place for a mini family reunion for us: we were 4 adults and 1 child in all. We could have also easily accomodated my sister's family, with 2 additional adults and 2 children. There's a huge family bedroom upstairs, plus two smaller ones. One smaller bedroom is ensuite, and the other two share a full bathroom. Downstairs there are two additional bedrooms that share a bathroom. All the beds we used were quite comfortable, and there were nice touches like hair dryers in every bathroom. Similarly, the kitchen was extremely well equipped.
There is ample space at the dining table and in the living room for a crowd, and in nice weather, the patio can accommodate a large group as well. We had some rain, so the stock of umbrellas for guests came in handy, as did the decks of cards and board games. Our hostess was out of the country during our visit, but kept in contact via email and text.
Great Location and a feeling of Home
We had 14 family members there. We were quite pleased with the Villa and the location. Easy to get into town from the train and metro.The shops and restaurants in the area that you recommended were very good.
Beautiful, spacious home in Rome.
Beautiful and spacious home close to the train station. The large yard with fruit and olives trees provide a shady place to relax. The house has plenty of sleeping accomadations and also AC in each room. The owner, Lucia, provided everything in the house we could need during your stay such as linens, blow dryers and also included restaurant and train/metro information. Thank you very much Lucia! We had a lovely stay!
A dream home in Rome!
Lucia and her family were amazing!!! From the moment we booked it was first class service all the way. My husband and I were flying in from the United States of America and his family and friends from the Netherlands. We were in Rome to celebrate our wedding. The home was clean, spacious, and accommodated everyone in the wedding group easily. We even had a welcome packet waiting for us from the owners. Lucia provided us clear instructions to the home, recommended restaurants, shops, and provided us additional suggestions that saved us a ton of time and money. It had easy access to the train into the city center. Our family focused on relaxing in home environment and the wedding...we will cherish our memories in this house forever. We enjoyed the most coffee in the terraza of the home every chance we had. She had EVERYTHING that any person could possibly need.
We are already planning for our next visit back to Lucia's home. This is a must if you want live like the locals in the countryside and live like the Romans do...a dream come true!
