To experience Rome in first-class surroundings, please contact us at any time. We boast a free high-speed (WiFi) internet connection, a television, and all other modern conveniences. queries or bookings. We bought our apartment because we were able to design it to our own specifications and keep many of the original features. We also love the area, it is extremely quiet but a short walk to the city centre, the main museums, beautiful squares, churches and the railway station. It is also a 2 minute walk from Trimani, the best wine shop in Rome with a fabulous restaurant next door.

The apartment is high-end. My wife is very particular, and loved it. Clean, good beds and shower.
Antonella and Sergio are very accommodating hosts. Apartment is in a quiet neighborhood away from tourists and close to good restaurants, shopping and public transportation. It is away from the center of the city, but we were able to walk to places of interest within 30-40 minutes and see sites along the way that we normally would not. The apartment is very nice and a good place to hang out, rest and relax when not touring the city. My wife and I would definitely recommend it and would go back.
Great apartment,great location
This is a high quality apartment located in a great area and ideal for a stay in Rome. The apartment is ideal for a family or couple. We were 2 adult couples and found it a little restrictive due to the ceiling height of the second bedroom and lack of privacy. These were minor issues and would not stop us staying there again next time we were in Rome.
The place is awesome. Very neat and clean inside. There are good places to get pizza and eat gelato close by. Antonella was also great! She was very flexible and accommodating with our schedule. Highly recommended !
The apartment was very secure and beautiful. The location was great and everything we needed was in the apartment, even a chilled bottle of prosecco. The only negative was the low ceiling in the second bedroom. Antonella was very accommodating and gracious and arranged our travel to and from the airport. Great reviews of the neighborhood restaurants and transportation were given.
Great time in Rome
We had a wonderful time in this apartment while we were in Rome. There are four great restaurants on this block alone with a Gelato store at the end. Great location with close walking distance to many places
Apartment is very good equipped with all necessary tools. Good air-condition. TV with international programs. I would unquestionably recommend this rental to anyone looking to stay in the heart of Rome.
What a wonderful stay
We had a tremendous time here as the apartment is so well equipped and comfortable, and the owners are so helpful. We especially appreciated the great service from the housekeeper. We found we could easily walk to all the sights (except we took the Metro to the Vatican Museums). The neighbourhood restaurants are great; we loved Andrea, also Vincenzo, and the pizzeria Re Basilico. A little bit further, Cadorna was excellent. The gelateria Romana got our boys' vote hands down.
Rome’s famous churches, fountains, squares, museums and monuments start almost from the moment you walk out the door. Walk in one direction past the Sir Basil Spence designed British Embassy to Michelangelo’s Porta Pia. In the other direction you find the stunning Piazza della Repubblica off which is the equally stunning Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri Basilica, whilst Santa Maria della Vittoria, the finest Baroque church in Rome (possibly Europe) on Via XX Settembre and Via Nazionale are also all within a few minutes walk. Keep going and you’ll be at the Quirinale, Trevi Fountains, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, Campo de' Fiori and Colosseum and all the major sights in a matter of minutes. Or take a different route and walk through the beautiful Villa Borghese towards the Spanish Steps and Piazza del Popolo and across to the Vatican. The apartment is right next to the British Embassy.
