About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-5)

This beautiful apt is located at Santa Maria Liberatrice Square, in the heart of Testaccio. It's just been renovated (March 2010) with refined taste with precious material (Wood, Travertine, etc.) and furnished tastefully.

It's situated on the first floor of a building which dates back to 19th Century. It's composed of (1) an entrance, (2) a well equipped kitchen (pots, pans, a microwave, a dish-washer, a toaster, a fridge, a freezer, gas-stove, an oven, a grill, etc.). A corridor leads to a living room (3) with a comfortable sofa double bed, a writing desk, a TV, a DVD, a stereo CD, a chair bed (very comfortable). (4) A spacious and beautiful bedroom, (5) A bathroom with a wonderful travertine shower. Next to the bathroom there's a small box room with a washing machine. At the end of the passage there's a wardrobe room. Coffee, tea, salt, sugar, vinegar, olive oil, chocolate, soap for dish washer and for the washing machine are provided.

Testaccio Area:: Even if in the heart of Testaccio area, calmness and peace are assured. The apt faces a quite courtyard. Outside the building there's a park with recreational facilities. The charming area of Testaccio is perhaps the last outpost of a nearly disappeared Rome. It's a slice of the city, next to Aventino and the Cocci Mountain, between Tiber bend at Ripa Grande and Piramide Cestia, next to Trastevere Area. It's nearly intact with the same original roman spirit. If you walk to Santa Maria Liberatrice, go around the famous fresh market counters (it is behind the building of the apt), Mattatoio, Campo Testaccio or to Acattolico Cemetery, you realize and breath the popular, human atmosphere.

Transport:: The apt is central, you can walk to the most important places in Rome but it's well connected by buses, trams, Piramide Subway. The subway leads to Coliseum, only 2 stops, to Piazza Navona etc.

Why the Owner Chose Aventino Testaccio: : Testaccio is a little Island where you can find yet the ancient and magical style of Living of true Romans. Close to each important Monument. Here you can have all the different way to visit and enjoy this wonderful City. The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: Year Purchased: 2009 - The apartment has been built with all the things everyone would like to have. I traveled. And I know what I would like to find in an apartment for my holiday. Owner Description/Comments: Kind and Available to contribute your perfect holiday in Rome, with all my advice.

Wonderful flat!! Great neighborhood!

We LOVED our time at Davide's Home. Perfect flat and neighborhood with restaurants, coffee houses, gelato and grocery store right nearby. Carmela was very helpful and friendly. Not one complaint. We'll be back!

This is our fourth stay with Carmela and I can't say anything that has not already been said. As usual everything was perfect. Clean, spacious apartment with full kitchen, air conditioning, washer, comfortable bed. Can't wait to return there. One recommendation to visitors to Rome....get use to the transportation system as soon as possible, especially trams number 8 (Argentina) and 13 (Casaletto). Rome is a very walkable city but this makes it a lot easier and quicker to get back and forth.

Highly recommend this spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 week vacation staying at this apartment. The apartment was spacious, quiet, and very well furnished. The building itself was well kept, and residents were polite and respectful. The location was excellent, and we had no problems walking or taking the subway to any of the tourist sites in Rome. It was always great to return from other areas to "non touristy" Testaccio. Carmela was extremely helpful providing information, and arranging pick-up to and from the airport. The information about local restaurants, and shopping was very helpful. We tried all the local restaurants that were recommended, and had very good food and experiences in each. We have already recommended this apartment to friends and family, and would love to return.

Great to live with the locals

  • 5 of 5

A large spacious 3 room flat, AC in bedroom & living room, ability to close off the bedroom & living room (which has a fold out bed), handy when one of us was fighting a cold and had trouble sleeping. Flat is on the first floor of a secure building and there is an elevator.

Carmella the Manager was waiting for us when we arrived, and thoroughly explained everything, left us a bottle of water and a bottle of wine. She is very friendly and helpful, and lives nearby. In fact when I needed to print my Ryan Air boarding passes, she offered to print them and drop them off, but the friendly bookstore manager next door bailed me out. She arranged car pick-up at Termini Station and another car to take us to the Airport, which worked out very well as opposed to hailing a cab for a little less money (her price is less that if you booked it.)

Living here is like being a local, as you are surrounded by a myriad of small shops, bakeries, pizzerias, banks, squares where people gather, and so on.

Bus service is all around, main buses to the Colleseum, and all over the city are one or two blocks away.

Be sure to visit the Volpetti Gourmet Grocery and related Volpetti Piu restaurant nearby.
