Villa DiTrapano was purchased by our grandfather in 1932. The Villa sits on 16 acres surrounded by an olive orchard with lemon, orange, and fig trees. The property was originally owned and developed by Sig. Rappini and includes his 17th century Castelletto (we do not rent this) which is adjacent to our Villa. During WWII the Castelletto, because of its fortification and strategic location, was occupied by the Germans.
In 2013, we began renovation of Villa DiTrapano. This included the addition of a Travertine swimming pool, and complete refurbishing of the Villa, both inside and out. The Villa offers mountain views as well as views of the town of Sezze, the plains out to the Mediterranean and on a clear day the island of Ponza.
There are a total of 4 bedrooms, two on each of the upper floors and one bathroom per floor, all of which have been recently renovated. There are two memory foam cots available for extra guests, raising the sleeping accommodation to 10 guests.
The terrace off of the French doors from the living room provides a dining area with a view of the pool, village, and Mediterranean coast in the distance. A teak wood dining table seats 8 people or more with a large umbrella for shelter from the sun. Ample parking space is available on site. Electric gates add privacy. 20 minutes from Mediterranean coast and beach areas. Access to Rome from local train station in 45 minutes. Suitable as a base for traveling further south to visit the Amalfi coast, Sorrento, and Islands. Local historic towns great to visit include: Sermoneta, Bassiano, Roccagorga, San Felice, and Anzio. Pompeii is also very close, as well as the Medieval gardens of Ninfa and the Abbey of Fossanova where Saint Thomas Aquinas died.
Untouched countryside. A car is essential.
We loved our recent stay at Villa Di Trapano. Gorgeous and relaxed common areas where you feel at home. The pool was fabulous. We were blown away by the beauty inside and out. We'd recommend to anyone to visit and create your treasured memories.

After a two week stay, we started looking for places in town to buy. This village and whole area is so special. Didn't run into one American! Not that I don't love my fellow countrymen, but just seemed odd that Sezze has yet to be discovered by tourists.

We spent a week at the Villa and we can't say enough good things abou t this vacation. It was absolutely a wonderful experience and location in Italy. Get away from the tourists and big cities, but still close enough to experience day trips to Rome, the Amalfi Coast, the Mediterranean Sea and more.
