ITALY, LAZIO, ROME
This imposing and prestigious 500 sqm. family villa with private 5000 sqm. garden, pool and football pitch is in the prestigious residential area of Olgiata, a few kilometers from Rome. The villa is surrounded by a well maintained park fronting onto a Golf Course. 24 hours security is provided.
The residential area of Olgiata is around 612 hectares with about 6000 residents. It is part of the City of Rome. The district acquired its current name in 1566 when Alessandro Olgiati bought it from Paolo Giordano Orsini, Duke of Bracciano. The area is closely linked to the Via Cassia. In the Middle Ages the road was the main artery linking Rome and France and so took the name of Via Franchigena or Francisca. A pilgrimage to Rome from the center of France took about a month. Convents, monasteries and inns (osterie) were the dining options. The ‘L’osteria del Fosso’, the ‘Osteria della Storta’ and the ‘Osteria di Baccano’ are still well preserved. It is about 40 minutes from Fiumicino Airport and about 30 minutes from the beaches of Fregene.
The golf course at Olgiata onto which the villa fronts is one of the top courses in Rome.
The Olgiata Centro Ippico is one of the best and largest in the Rome area. Clients that enjoy horses can keep them at home or at the stables/club nearby.
The two main International schools (St. Georges & American Overseas) are on the Via Cassia, the main street that connects to Olgiata, only 10min and 20min respectively.
