Think Italian villa and it conjures romantic rustic images of terracotta roofs and classic furniture. That's not the case at this contemporary treat. Villa Nocetta is a welcoming fusion of styles. From the outside, it's a trad-esque building with heaps of charm, but inside, chic modern fittings and unique art are sprinkled around spacious rooms.
It comes fully staffed - including a chef and concierge - and they can cater for weddings of up to 100 people with a customised service (no strict packages to adhere to).
Our advice? There are so few villas to rent near the Eternal City that this is gold dust - get booking.
