About Sonia

Ciao!! We are Sonia, Alessandro, our uncle Franco ... and Valerio (our 'big' 8 years old son) and Tiziano (our 'small' 6 years old son) from Rome.

Matching our love for traveling with the love for our city and its beautiful historical center, we decided to rent our small and peaceful 'nest' to other 'travel lovers' that wished to visit the Eternal City.

Sonia purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Sonia chose Rome

We always wanted a house in the center of Rome to live:

the Rome of the Roman Republic

the Rome of the Roman Empire

the Rome of the Catholic Middle Ages

the Rome of the Catholic Renaissance

the Rome of the Catholic ‘600

the Rome of good food

the Rome of the gardens and roses

the nightlife of a Rome that never sleeps

... ... ... ... ... .... and all this is just a small list of the many “faces” of our city.

Mind you, the world is really very interesting and beautiful, we love to travel, we sailed south of Turkey, we slept on a double bed just under the night stars on a sandy desert dune, we were stuck between Isralel and Jordan, Alessandro adores Asia, Sonia has lived in New York, we love food and tastes very different from ours like Thai or Northern India, we are working for American companies and we appreciate a lot of other cultures ... but Rome is Rome :-)))))

We searched and found a small house in the center “of the center of Rome”, with the idea of being part of a long history.

We personally live a little out from the center but still close to a historic place, we are at Ponte Milvio (various battles as the Senate of Rome against Pompey, Constantine against Maxentius, and centuries after, Garibaldi “The 2 Worlds’ Hero” against the French.)

As you may have understood we love our city, or better “our cities”, very much, if you want to understand why, come to find it out in the Eternal City: we’ll be waiting for you with great pleasure!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Upon arrival uncle Franco was there to greet us. We didn't know too much about the neighborhood and Franco took the time to show us around, and make us feel comfortable. The apartment is adorable! I was traveling with my sister and it was exactly what we needed. There are lots of cute shops on the street, and an amazing restaurant called Bric enoteca a couple of doors down. The apt is very central to all of the sights in Rome. Overall we had a wonderful experience. I can't wait to come back!!!

It was just as described. The location was perfect! Close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

This place was wonderful! The location cannot be beat. It was close to everything that we wanted to see. It took us a while to figure out that you have to put water in the AC. Once we figured that out it worked great.

We were grateful for the airport pick up and the orientation by Uncle Franco. Everything about this stay was easy! Thank you.

perfect space in the heart of Rome

  • 5 of 5

Franco was wonderful to meet us and give us our bearings after a long day of traveling. He gave us those helpful hints to get us started on our first trip to Italy. The apartment is cute and in a wonderful 400 year old building. Big shower in the bathroom and washer which was so helpful with the heat of summer! It was so close to Campo di Fiori and many other wonderful sights! Loved it.

Quirky, quiet

  • 5 of 5

I think all the reviews of this place are pretty accurate. We were grateful for the sleeping arrangements that allowed our two teens to have their own bed and separate space. The a/c was struggling to keep up with the the high heat and humidity, but it was better than none! The place is dark, but that is fine, we were only there to sleep so it kept it cooler and no street noise. We had a bedding issue that Sonia fixed immediately. The greeting from Franko was so welcome, he gets to the business of sorting your days in Rome out and shows you around the area which is a great help. I'd take a little clothes line that can be set up without damaging the apartment and dry light clothes that way rather than using the machine to dry as it take a long time, no a/c while machine is working. Over all great place, amazing location and wonderful hosts!

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

All the reviews listed are accurate, both good and bad, which really are based on each persons preference.... but this flat suited us well for our needs and we would not hesitate to stay here again. Great value, especially if like us you would need two hotel rooms to accommodate your family of four.

We are a family of 4 and had been traveling for 3 weeks and spent 4 nights here to catch up on sleep and do laundry. It is a cute and quirky little place located in a 400 year old building in an excellent and walkable area of Rome. Perfect for site seeing and sleeping when your tired and your feet hurt.

There are many restaurants within a 2-5 minute walk. Grocery stores 1-2 blocks away. The Pam Local has ready to eat meals and we enjoyed making out own Caprese salads and meals in the small kitchen to eat when we could not stand eating out anymore.

A note to mention..... the air conditioning is not central air but rather a stand alone unit that can not be ran while the washer/dryer is on. This did cause a bit of an issue as the washer/dryer is a dual machine and can take 5-6 hours to complete a cycle and it was pretty hot in Rome and we really wanted a cool off while doing laundry. BUT... if you plan to be gone all day it would not be a problem.

Both Sonia and Uncle Franco were excellent and very accommodating when we were interested in adding a day before our visit. Franco met us at the flat with a warm smile on his face and spent 45 minutes with us doing a walk thru of the condo, providing area information, contract information for him and Sonia and also walking us around 2 blocks so that we were sure to be clear on the location of stores, bus ticket purchase and bus stops. All of this was very appreciated and we were grateful for his time.

Also please note that Sonia and Franco were extremely quick and efficient fixing a plumbing issue we experienced during our stay. We made a call, went out for a few hours and magically everything was fixed and a little note was left for us on the table. It is after all a home and things happen... I loved and appreciated the way they handled it.

Just right for us! Two sleeping spaces for family members keeping different hours.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location, an oasis on the ground floor, and charming. We loved Uncle Franco, who walked us around the neighborhood and gave advice on how long it would take to walk to our specific destinations! The pasta restaurant up the street, recommended by him, was wonderful, the site of three of our dinners.
