Overview of Villa Ripoli

What Oliver loves…

  • Nearby attractions Villa d’Este and Hadrian’s Villa are directly below the property.
  • In less than 35 minutes, guests can be at the steps of ancient Rome.
  • The patio has an amazing view of the sun setting over Rome.

What you should know…

  • There is wi-fi on the ground floor area only.
  • Some walls have mounted antlers and other taxidermy. 

The fabulous mountaintop location puts the villa in close proximity to Villa D'Este and Villa Adriana. The many panoramic Travertine terraces, the 14 x 7 meter swimming pool with a large children’s shallow water area, and exceptional views of Rome and surrounding hillside villages are only some of the amazing features that make Villa Ripoli a memorable retreat in the vicinity of Rome.

This exclusive, gated property is an oasis of privacy and security. Villa Ripoli is reached via majestic hand-laid stone driveways and is situated among hilly walking paths, shade trees, and well-groomed grounds with abundant roses, hydrangeas and wild cyclamens.

The Italian owners recently restored this 6 bedroom villa with great care, making it a perfect combination of modern comfort and excellent taste. They have filled the interiors with interesting furnishings, rare art and objects from around the world. Guests will long remember the travertine and alabaster sculptures adorning the gardens, pool and home as well as the many beautiful paintings that give this villa its character.

Some other features of Villa Ripoli are the unique trophy room, the piano hall, and the delightfully warm and relaxing atmosphere of the elegant and spacious living room with its cosy fireplace. Guests fond of cooking will truly appreciate the main kitchen, known for its rustic style and informality, especially when the fireplace offers warmth and ambiance. The personal chef is happy to take requests and will coordinate all of the food shopping as required. The lovely outdoor dining areas on the terraces are perfect for al fresco meals accompanied by the superb views.

The convenient location of this impressive property just outside the charming village of Tivoli makes Villa Ripoli a favourite getaway for guests. It is only a 35 minute drive from central Rome. Travelers wishing to explore the Eternal City and its surrounding attractions while discovering the charms of a quiet Italian home will find Villa Ripoli an appealing option.

Villa Ripoli is also the ideal place for large families, business retreats, and groups of friends seeking a peaceful reprieve away from the bustle of the cities.

After a long day of sight-seeing, guests will appreciate the haven of Villa Ripoli. Sitting on one of the several terraces, drinking a glass of local wine and watching the breathtaking sunsets as they overlook nearby and distant mountain ranges dotted with olive groves, mustard fields and the reflective pool of Villa Adriana are some of the most enjoyable moments of any holiday. On clear days, guests can see St. Peter’s Dome and, far off in the distance, the Tyrrhenian Sea. A stay at Villa Ripoli is truly a restorative and memorable experience.

Map, Location & Local Information

Villa Ripoli is located in the breath-taking and culturally rich Tivoli.

Tivoli's worldwide fame rests on two architectural masterpieces: Villa d'Este and Villa Adriana. Building work on Villa Adriana commenced in 117 AD. The villa was created to provide a sumptuous imperial residence, far from the crowds and heat of Rome, for Emperor Hadrian. The ruins of the immense villa tell the story of both the emperor, who personally supervised its construction, and his court.

The other man to have left his mark on Tivoli was Cardinal Ippolito II d'Este, son of Lucrezia Borgia. It was he who commissioned the building of Villa d'Este and the property's magnificent 35,000 sq. m mannerist garden which, with its many fountains, constitutes one of Italy's most important tourist attractions. The demolition of an entire quarter of Tivoli was necessary to allow for its construction.

Villa d'Este is situated right in the medieval center of Tivoli next to the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore. Not far from there lies Piazza del Duomo with the town's most important house of worship, the Duomo di Tivoli. Rebuilt in the 17th century, the cathedral stands side by side with an ancient 12th century bell tower, the Rocca Pia. The tower was built in the 15th century by Pope Pious II to defend the city from attack.

Reviews for Villa Ripoli

Villa Ripoli Reviews

  • Our time at the villa and in Tivoli was fantastic!

    Posted by on 19/12/2013

    The pictures and description do not do it justice. Villa Ripoli is a warm, inviting, comfortable, spacious, fun, charming family home where memories of their history are present everywhere. From the 'trophy room' to the sculptures and from coffee in town with Nicola's father to walking the town -- there is so much to take in. The family's hospitality is over the top -- from the welcome basket to the wine cellar and baked treats from the mother and recommendations for dinner. They help ensure your stay is just perfect. One recommendation -- ditch your car and hire Michele to pick you up at the airport and drive you everywhere (he is amazing!) Our time at the villa and in Tivoli was fantastic!
