7 adults and 2 kids spent a lovely holiday in Villa Domus. The house was spacious, very clean and had all the equipment we needed (starting from tennis rackets to good variety of kitchen utensils). The weather was unusually hot for June and we really appreciated the swimming pool. It took less than 10 minutes to the nearest small beach, which was a very good spot for snorkelling; more sandy beaches can be found for example in Santa Marinella centre. We did not rent a car but we used city buses (1.1 €/ticket, the nearest bus stop is maybe 600 m from the house) and trains. Very well equipped supermarket called "Elite" was about 30 minutes away by walking, which was ok for us, but a car is definitely handy since the drinking water has to be bought (tap water was not drinkable, but we used it for cooking without any problems).
Some of us went running in the mornings, and the hilly terrain combined with hot weather offered enough challenges at least for us!
Santa Marinella was a really nice town, there were many restaurants, gelaterias, and small shops there. Rome can be reached by bus or a train and the public transport is cheap. We also visited Civitavecchia by bus.
We can definitely recommend Villa Domus for families or group of friends: the kitchen / living room is large and 9 people ate and spent time together there easily. Terrace and swimming pool are also big and there was even a new grill in the garden which we didn't have time to use. Everyone can have also their own privacy as well, and each of the bedrooms had their own bathrooms. Monica brought us some fruits directly from their garden, eggs and olive oil; all delicious! We got a guided tour around the premises, which was really nice.
We want to thank Monica and her parents for their hospitality and the great vacation we had!
