About the neighbourhood
Off the main road and traffic, the flat location is ideal for a peaceful holiday and has the advantage of bus lines stopping close by and well stocked supermarkets, fabulous restaurants and shops within walking distance. The area is adjacent to a 5.000 hectars Reservation in use to the Italian President in office and to a large established pine-wood, very popular with the Romans. A park with shopping centre and keep-fit stations is a 15 minute walk away, not forgetting the beautiful coast-line stretching north and south of Ostia, only 4 Km. away.
