Villa Grazioli is a villa in Frascati, Italy, now in Grottaferrata communal territory.

It was built at the end of the 16th century by Cardinal Carafa, projected by architect Domenico Fontana. The villa was enlarged by the new property, the family Acquaviva of Aragon, of the House of Atri.

In 1843 the Grazioli family bought the villa. In some rooms Agostino Ciampelli (1565–1630) pictured the villa with decoration works, the paintings show rural life and rustic scene. In the last years the new owners restored the building and turned it in an elegant hotel.
