A stunning villa for your Roman getaway: Casale Santo Nicola
Our sister site TuttoHost (in Italian) has a feature on the cocooning effect and the tendency that tourists have, in these first few weeks of the so-called Phase 3 in Italy, to seek out destinations and accommodations that have everything their locked down home did not.
Sprawling views (perhaps of the coast or the mountains!) for those who were stuck in a big city; a pool or a garden for those who had to deal with living in a flat with no extra spaces or features; a big house for those used to have just a studio to themselves.
What is cocooning anyway?
The term “Cocooning”, first used by futurist and author Faith Popcorn, means “The need to protect oneself from the harsh, unpredictable realities of the outside world” – a spot-on description of what many tourists, fresh out the Coronavirus effect on their home countries, are experiencing and looking for as they start to travel again.
As such, this new batch of visitors is all about the comfort right now: regardless of it being mental, physical or emotional, they tend to book properties that can cater to these needs.
A cocooning treat: introducing Casale Santo Nicola
This is where From Home to Rome comes in with a special treat for you: did you know that on top of our high-standing apartments in the city we manage an entire villa in the countryside north of the center?
Part of an estate dating back to the Seventeenth century, Casale Santo Nicola is a three-storey property is in the middle of a park, in an ideal location – secluded and yet minutes away from the some of the city’s main arteries, with such attractions as St. Peter’s Basilica or Trastevere easily reachable by train in about 25 minutes (and in roughly 1 hour by car).
Decorated in what can only be described as “country-meets-classic-Italian style”, it features a mix of modern amenities like a laundry room with washer and dryer, central heating, air conditioning (of the fan variety) and a microwave oven in its fully equipped kitchen, but it also boasts a mix of hardwood and terracotta floors as well as beamed ceilings, fireplaces and a grand piano for all romantics out there!
With 2 dining rooms and 6 bathrooms, Casale Santo Nicola can sleep up to 12 people and it’s ideal for a family reunion or a gathering of friends – you and your travel companions can reconnect, relax and rest, all the while respecting each and everyone’s privacy and need for space (there is plenty of it!).
A treat within a treat: Casale Santo Nicola’s swimming pool and tennis court
Because of its peculiar location, Casale Santo Nicola’s owners wanted their estate to be one of those magic places where the only thing you will ever need is the occasional grocery run: that’s why the villa comes with its own tennis court and private pool! As a nod to its history, a private chapel has also been preserved on the estate grounds.
