Awards

2011, 2012, 2013: Rated excellent and winner of TA Top Vacation Rental
2014: Winner of TA Certificate of Excellence

Literally 1 minute from Metro A Colli Albani stop and a few minutes to the historic centre, this sunny, stylish and spacious apartment (6th floor with elevator; 603 sq ft - 56 mq), is owned by a Scottish-Italian family, who take pride in making it a warm home from home for guests. Located in the 'Appio Latino' district, along the Via Appia Nuova (one of the best shopping areas in Rome), it is served by the A-line metro that connects in 15 minutes to all the main attractions such as the Colosseum, Spanish Steps, St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican Museum and the entire historic center. We're also close to the Old Appian Way archaeological site with its ruins and catacombs. With the subway station just outside the front door, travelling around Rome is incredibly easy. You'll be living in a typical Roman area and will be able to mix with the locals. You certainly won't regret it. The apartment features: spacious bedroom (double glazed window doors that open onto a balcony) with king size bed, fold-up bed suitable for a child, dressing table, wardrobe; large living room with 2 couches (one of which a opens out to a comfortable queen size sofa bed), dining table, LCD flat screen TV; fully equipped kitchen; bathroom with shower; hall with extra wardrobe; balcony where you can sit at the end of the day with a glass of wine watching the world go by. A/C. Free WI-FI. Supermarkets, cafés, great variety of shops, restaurants, pizzerias, ATM's, etc. nearby. Nature lovers might want to visit the 'Valle della Caffarella' park and Villa Lazzaroni (with a children's playground) for a break from city life.


On request we can organize airport transfer starting from 45 euros.

How to reach us: FROM FIUMICINO AIRPORT.

Car: Not Necessary

One of the main assets of the property is that it is right at an A-line Metro stop (Colli Albani). The A-line Metro was built to connect all the main tourist attractions, from the Old Appian Way to the Vatican so our apartment combines the advantages of a convenient price with easy access to the historical center. All the major sights can be reached in a few minutes. Buses also widely available. Supermarket opposite and a great mix of shops, banks, internet cafes, restaurants, pubs, pizzerias all in close proximity. The adjacent Via Appia Nuova is one of Rome's best shopping areas. Guarded garage nearby, on street parking for those of you who plan to hire a car.

 

Owner info

About the owner: Hi, I'm Irene. I inherited this flat from my parents and am very attached to it. I was born and brought up in Scotland and 'brought over' to Italy when my parents retired, but I've been living here a lifetime and now consider Italy as home, although I often think fondly of my childhood in Scotland. It was my sons’ idea that I rent this flat out to tourists. I decided to give it a try and have been happily welcoming people from all over the world since August 2006. I would love to welcome you too. We speak English, French and Italian and a little German and Spanish.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The flat has a homely atmosphere and is close to everything: supermarkets, bakeries, restaurants, 'pizzerias and gelaterias', boutiques, banks, internet cafés, car hire, open air fruit and vegetable market, etc. The location is fantastic. From the balcony you have a beautiful view of the hills to the south of Rome and the Via Appia Nuova. The underground stop is right at the doorstep, and bus stops too, which means there's no walking to do when you come back at night with weary feet. You will be living in a typically Roman area and be able to mix with the locals. If you get tired of city life and want a breath of fresh air, go and visit the Caffarella Park. It's just short walk away and is the most significant remaining example of ancient countryside in the city. You'll see many monuments from different ages, besides sheep grazing here and there and a good few vegetable gardens. I look forward to seeing you.
