Welcome to Olive Tree Hill
aka Il Colle degli Ulivi

a prized B&B just outside Rome.

Get the best out of your Roman Holiday by exploring the path less traveled and avoiding tourist traps! Turn your Rome vacation into a real travel experience!

“Il Colle degli Ulivi” aka “Olive Tree Hill” is located in Zagarolo, a charming medieval town near Rome’s Metropolitan Area, at the foot of the Castelli Romani, the wine area of Rome, and only a short distance from the well-known beautiful towns just outside of Rome such as NemiTivoli, and Palestrina.

Considered nowadays as one of the best B&B’s near Rome, Olive Tree Hill was recently rated one of the top 3 B&B’s in Rome on TripAdvisor.  In 2008 the TripAdvisor website was redesigned and this B&B was relisted under the town of Zagarolo.

While staying at this friendly and welcoming bed & breakfast you will get the chance to enjoy Rome at its best, discover amazing hidden gems off the beaten path, fall in love with the marvelous and unknown Roman countryside, breathe a more real Italy, and learn more about the Italian lifestyle and culture.

What our guests say about us

A couple of people on trip advisor attempted to dissuade us from staying in Zagarolo, saying that staying in Rome would be far better, and we are so glad we went against this advice…

The perfect place to stay when visiting Rome and surrounds. Beautiful old town, excellent train access, great accommodation and of course the stars of the show are the hosts Teri and Ivano at Olive Tree Hill.

My husband and I stayed here in the summer of 2012. We had a beautiful time, thanks to the warm and understanding hospitality of Ivano & Terri. A lovely, lovely location, clean and comfy rooms and delicious food. Wish I were there!
