Aventino Testaccio villa description

This charming apartment is in the picturesque, Villa Habsburg - which stands in the middle of the only remaining orchard within the walls of ancient Rome, and thus in the very heart of today's city. Here you have the dual advantage of a sightseeing holiday, and of relaxing in an Italian landscaped garden, the boundary of which is the Aurelian Wall itself, where you can picnic, swim and rest after a long day's culture. This apartment has balconies, terraces and access to the private garden.

There is an extensive library: you can sit and read in the ancient Roman guard rooms, part of the Aurelian walls that mark the boundary of the orchard. There is a meadow for picnicking at the bottom of the garden, and a park and swimming pool nearby. Baby cots are available. Airport transfers, and a local guide, can be booked . Full instruction leaflet provided.


The apartmenthas incomparable views over the Palatine, Aventine, the baroque statues of St John Lateran, the Roman Baths of Caracalla, and the Appian Way.

All rooms have their own bathrooms

Very often last minute bookings are made at far lower prices assuming that anything is free at the last minute. In early December or late January, for instance, this is often the case . Roman winters are mild. and you miss out on the crowds and can see the museums without queuing for hours

                      Rome needs little introduction. Good guides are the new edition of Baedekers, in English French or German; and tip -the new wonderfully reviewed edition of Georgina Masson´s Companion Guide to Rome published in the 1950´s. This has now been revised and added to(2004) by John Fort to considerable critical aclaim from all the best newspapers. In many ways Mr Fort has improved on the original. Well worth buying, paperback about 15 GBP a snip at the price, and many fascinating lesser know places to visit very near us

                      Golf: Circolo del Golf di Acqua Santa, Roma, telephone: +39 6 780 3407. Handicap certificate definitely required. Possibility of playing July, August and September at 50 Euros per person per weekday; 70 Euros per person per day at weekends. Other months weekdays are open as above; weekends are for competitions only, but everyone is welcome to take part in these. Stunning golf course, surrounded by Roman pines and aqueducts - just at the point described by Dickens in his journey to Italy, where the coachman driving towards the city would raise their whips, point and cry 'Ecco Roma!' A landscaped frequently painted by the English watercolourists, in particular Edward Lear. A Bonus is the attached restaurant which is first class.

                      Ski: Guest book 2007 I would like to thank you in the name of all the members of our group for the excellent accomodation in the Villa Habsburg. It was a real joy to stay there- (Stiftung Preussische Schlösser und Gärten, Berlin, Oct 2007). The villa was a great find and we loved our time there (Richards Wimbledon Sept 2007). We have had a lovely time and absolutely loved the house and garden. We feel very lucky to have been able to stay there (Guest House 1 Field Reid London August 2007). We had a wonderful time. The acccomoodation was really superb with fantastic views. It was a pleasure to sit on the terrace watching the sun go down whilst enjoying a bottle of wine...bliss..(Piano nobile, Bruce ,Angus June 2007 ). We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Rome. The apartment was ideal and both the housekeeper and the driver were very helpful (Guest House 2, Main Middlesex July 2007). What a beautiful house, we will be recommending it to our friends.(Rankine Portugal Nov 2007).
