The living room is bright and airy with plenty of natural light and contains comfortable but stylish modern and antique furniture and some beautiful pieces of art. Recently the apartement has been upgraded with a Sky TV satellite service which provide sports, films and news.

The dining area has a beautiful wooden antique table that seats six and is ideal for entertaining.

Why Sergio & Antonella chose Rome

Why us? Simply, our apartments provide more amenities, more space, and more overall comfort than a comparable hotel - and we're able to offer better rates! The fully-functioning kitchens, comfortable lounge rooms, and quality bedding & linen that our apartments boast allow you to enjoy Rome without compromising on lifestyle. 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.

It's great location in Rome. Sightseeing start the moment you walk out the door.

The welcoming private courtyard when you arrive.

The peace and quiet once you are inside

Old Glassworks

  • 4 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a beautiful stay in this apartment while we were in Rome. Antonella and Sergio could not have been more lovely. We were greeted with Prosecco and crackers which was quite a nice surprise. They were so communicative in case we needed anything during our stay. There are three great restaurants on this block alone with a Gellato shop at the end. We were close to so much and it was easy to get a taxi from the block or right around the block (as we did not drive while we were in Rome). They had the international program on TV so it was easy to watch news in English (among other favorite shows). I would absolutely recommend this rental to anyone looking to stay in the heart of Rome and I would rent from them again.

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.
