History of the village
Colfiorito Farm is situated a few kilometres from Rome, in the Municipality of Castel Madama, at the exact place where a Roman villa stood two thousand years ago. The place was in fact well known to the ancient Romans, who have left numerous relics here such as the Claudian aqueduct and the villa of the poet Horace.
The farm nestles in the area of the Tiburtine Mountains. It begins just past Tivoli and opens out onto the Empolitana Valley. This is an ancient landscape, which remains uncontaminated by the proximity of Rome. Here the people have always devoted themselves to the cultivation of olives and vines, and to pastoral farming.
It extends for more than thirty hectares following the hill slope covered by vines and by 5,000 olive trees, the twisted forms of which display the passage of time.
Besides the main hamlet, there are other buildings on the farm, once lived in by peasants working the land. The ancient oil-mill of the day, now only of historical value, still retains its old grindstone and other reminders of times past

The houses, no longer needed for conducting business, were partially restored to offer accommodation to visitors in a quiet place, evoked in the verses engraved on the plaque placed in the atrium of the manor house that summarizes the traditional hospitality and the philosophy of the place:
“Tu, che sospinto dal desio di pace,
per questi lochi vai, ospite amico,
di secondar lo mio consiglio face:
ogni tuo affanno e ogni pensier rio
lascia alla cura del mio corno antico,
e lieto vanne... Al resto penso io!"
