Villa Rossi Danielli is a graceful 17th century country manor, that has been owned by the same family for three hundred years and which is designated as a national monument. Set in splendid countryside just one hour north of Rome, the villa is ideally located for exploring Lazio’s Etruscan sites and Renaissance palaces.
The villa has been entirely restored but its rural origins have been preserved, while maintaining the integrity of its identity. Its large rooms are decorated with fine antiques and ancestral portraits. Outside, a lawn with clipped hedges leads down through the garden to a stunning swimming pool overlooking the estate’s private olive groves and the hills leading towards Viterbo. Julia Roberts stayed here for a month while filming in Rome “Eat, Pray and Love”.
THE PROPOSAL OF VILLA ROSSI DANIELLI
Obtained from an ancient rural building located in the vast park surrounding Villa Rossi Danielli, a historic house dating back to 1500, after years of careful restoration the ancient building has been transformed into a unique structure, full of charm and style, in which natural and refined materials have been kept, linen fabrics in soft colors, lime paints that give a particular light.
The intent of the owners of the Relais di Villa Rossi Danielli, Luigi and Maria Renata Catalano Rossi Danielli, is to make their guests feel as if they were at home, but with a five-star service, fresh flowers, candles and linen towels in the suites.
In winter, you can chat with friends in the large living room heated by the fireplace, while in summer you can enjoy relaxing in the garden or immerse yourself in the beautiful infinity pool. Located in the heart of the wonderful Tuscia area, the Relais di Villa Rossi Danielli has welcomed excellent guests over the years such as Julia Roberts, Sarah Jessica Parker, Emilia Clarke, Harry Styles, Lila Azam Zanganeh and many others who have appreciated all the beauty and the absolute privacy.

LUIGI AND MARIA RENATA CATALANO ROSSI DANIELLI
Luigi and Maria Renata Catalano Rossi Danielli are attentive hosts, united by the great love for their property that they consider their only luxury, their great folly, a great privilege to own it.
Luigi says: “When my father died and the Merlano came to me – this is how we call the family home – the situation was completely different from what you see now. I was a doctor at that time and my life had a completely different direction. One evening during a very strong storm Maria Renata laughed and said to me “it’s raining on my head!”. We were younger, unconscious and times were different. We decided to change our lives, to start renting to foreigners and at the same time to restore. The superintendence helped us a lot. Little by little and with many sacrifices we began to repaint, to work every summer, to get closer to wonderful people who over the years from customers have become dear friends. I can only say that I could not have done anything if I hadn’t had by myself my wife Maria Renata, a complicated, sparkling and passionate woman as only Sicilians can be. Sometimes I look at her at work and I think she loves this place more than me…. Her biggest flaw? She constantly goes around the garden with the shears in her hand and cuts all the flowers, but in the end she is my weakness and I always forgive her!”
We asked Maria Renata Leto to accompany us to discover the simple and extraordinary beauty of our residences and the products of the land that surrounds them.
