If you feel like a longer walk the lakeside path is perfect, although due to a landslide in 2014 the access to this is via the tennis court and playing field area. Walking through the woods to Albano or Castel Gandolfo with ever-changing views of the lake is delightful and takes 45 minutes to an hour depending on how fast you walk. Apart from the last stretch it is traffic-free. Albano has most kinds of shops, bars, restaurants, ATMs, a post office and a supermarket.
If you prefer a longer walk, just before the main road take the path which leads down to the lakeside and you can even dip your toes in the cool waters of Lake Albano.
During the winter months the games room (Hume room) can be used for pool and table tennis.
Rocca di Papa, the nearest town to Palazzola, clings to the hillside of Monte Cavo and can be reached on foot within fifty minutes on a quiet, almost traffic-free road. Or you can walk to nearby Nemi with its own lake, passing by Diana's Grove made famous in Frazera's Golden Bough. Nemi is renowned for its delicious Alpine strawberries (fragolini) grown along the lakeshore.
There are a number of other walks you can take in this area. Our staff will be happy to advise you
