Description
In our home we offer you the comforts and the services of a hotel, with the advantage of a familiar and discreet acceptance, where the "customer" is considered an important guest.

You will find a serene, calm and comfortable atmosphere, that is more than a simple lodging for the night.

And in the morning you will begin the day by eating a rich and genuine breakfast.

The entrance for the guests is independent, from the garden. Parking is private. The rooms with a bathroom (double or triple) are well furnished and very comfortable.

If you are looking for a place close to Rome, "il Melograno" is just right: a villa surrounded by nature, from which you can walk to the center of the historical town of Ariccia, known for its folklore. From here you can reach Rome, using 20 Km of road, served by a bus (or by train, on the line Albano Laziale-Roma Termini).

But Ariccia is not in the outskirts of Rome: it is a town of ancient origins, built in an area between the two lakes of Albano and Nemi, in the midst of nature. Apart from its historical center, you will be able to discover history, nature, genuine local traditions, folklore and good food.

Transfer to and from Fiumicino Airport for 4 people at 30 euros.

You aren't allowed to smoke in the B&B.

Hey from Rita

Member since August 2005 | 79,690 hits
My name is Rita, and I have four daughters, but I live in this house with my husband and our two younger daughters. I have many passions, the first being cooking, especially when it comes to the quality and sustainability of food for a healthier future for everyone.

I have a garden with a small vegetable patch and orchard, and many animals that I love very much.

Lastly, but not least, I am interested in cinema and historical-cultural paths.

In conclusion, I can describe myself as a calm, serene, and welcoming person.

We stayed at this wonderful B&B nestled in the green hills of Ariccia. Its location allows its guests to easily reach all the towns of the Roman Castles and Rome in half an hour. Mrs. Rosa delighted us with excellent breakfasts and useful tips on how to get around. Highly recommended.

The owner is the highlight of 'Il Melograno'. She is kind, welcoming, and listening to her was a pleasure. The structure is close to the center, clean, and essential. I highly recommend it!

I had an unforgettably lovely experience staying with Renata and her family at Il Melograno. They are the kindest people and went above and beyond to make me feel welcome (I had just arrived from a long flight from Australia). The place was immaculately clean and my room had a beautiful garden view. Delicious breakfast too. Thank you.

Dear Dechen, thank you very much for such a kind review. It was really a pleasure for us to have you here.

Just spent a weekend at the Castelli Romani with my family! Optimal accommodation for those with a baby still using a stroller as it's very close to the center where you can easily walk to. Very clean and comfortable facility. The owner is really kind, helpful, and very approachable. Absolutely recommended!

I spent a very pleasant weekend in the Castelli Romani area and stayed at this B&B where I couldn't have found anything better, from the welcome and availability of Mrs. Rita, to the cleanliness, the excellent taste of the furnishings, and the rich breakfast. I sincerely recommend it and when I have to return to that area, I will have no doubts.

The answer from the host:
Gentilissima Sabrina è un piacere ospitare persone tanto garbate e gentili, un saluto alle sue Marche ricche di bellezza e cultura.
