Property description

The Villa is a place rich of art and archaeology and ecological itinerary in a strip of nature that is almost uncontaminated.The authentic style and the historical atmosphere have been preserved combining with modern and refined elements.The 20 rooms in the Villa and the 14 rooms in the "Borghetto" are equipped with every comfort.Expressed kitchen is the strong point of the restaurant, every menu is consists of a careful selection of dishes from the Italian tradition and enriched by the chef's choices.The elegant rooms and the evocative outside areas can accommodate up to 240 people.The meeting rooms with natural light and basic technical equipment can seating up to 170, numerous and welcoming are the interiors and extern, the terraces and the rooms are all a picturesque view of the lake.Along the property there are several buildings ("Villa", "Borghetto", "Scuderie" e "Punta S.Michele"), to the organization of each type of meeting and event.Built in the year 1629, by Caridinal Gerolamo Colonna on the land donated by Pope Urbano VIII Barberini, the newly renovated Villa is a faithful reproduction of the original palace, the work of the architect Antonio Del grande who was also commissioned by the same Cardinal Colonna to build the Duomo di Rocca di Papa and the church of S.Barnaba in Marino.Already in the past two thousand years, in this place there was a small house that was used a resting place by the Counsels and Pontiffs when they came to celebrate the 'Feriae Latinae' in the Temple of Giove Laziale.To real jewel of this solitary place is the well-known II century sepulchre of the Età Volgare adorned with consular and pontifical insignians attributed to Gneo Scipione Ispale. Prince Egidio, the third-born son of the Colonna family and the younger brother of Cardinal Gerolamo, began the hospitality of the Villa.As well as having the noble responsabilities such as ¨Patriarch of Jerusalem' and 'Archbishop of Amasia', he was in the habit of giving numerous feasts in honour of the Pontifical Court of Castel Gandolfo, with which he had organized by means of via Alessandrina, a dense carriage connection.This gave the possibility to various pontiffs succeeding in the centuries, to be among the most illustrious guests of 'Villa del Cardinale'.Every stone and shadow jealously preserves far off memories. Between myth and reality, according to a legend, the Villa and the annexed convent will go under the water when the great treasure is found. Many have strived to find out the truth behind the old story, but for now the complex still solidly remains attached to the Alban cliff
