Casale Sonnino - an enchanting villa near Rome

The Casale Sonnino, located 40 minutes from the city center, sits on a hilltop that once belonged to the Roman Senator Caius Julius Cornutus Tertullus in 100 AD. Traces of his ancient residence such as fragments of columns and walls have emerged from the soil and now enhance the ambiance of the garden. The cistern of the ancient villa lies in the Casale's basement which also features a Roman well, Roman arches and a system of caves dating back to at least the 12th Century. Over the years, these caves have been used for storing wine, growing mushrooms and even for a scene in an Italian feature film. Make sure you ask for a tour when you visit ...Read more

Additional Location Information

The Casale Sonnino is conveniently located off of the Rome-Naples Highway A-1 which runs Southeast of the city. It takes 30 minutes to get into Rome-Termini station (Central Rome) by the train at Colle Mattia, a station stop less than 2 kilometers from our Villa. There is parking for your rental car at Colle Mattia as well as ample parking at the Casale for you and your family/friends. The Casale is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, and is privately located at the end of a long cobblestone driveway and wrought iron gate. The "FS" at the top of the gate stands for our great, great uncles/grandfather, the "Fratelli Sonnino" who owned the vineyard 100 years ago. Our small town, Monte Porzio Catone is a 1K walk (up a hill, sorry!) from our gate. There you can find your cappuccino and breakfast danish, gelato, pizza fresh out of the oven, restaurants, ATM machine, a playground for small children and small grocery and vegetable stores. Frascati, a thriving regional center and tourist destination, is located 3 kilometers away and has more stores (very nice home furnishings, clothing and jewelry), restaurants, parks as well as its cultural centerpiece: The Villa Aldobrandini.
