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.

Real and homey in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

As this apartment is close to bus transit , grocery stores, and restaurants, we felt that our stay in Testaccio was like living in an Italian village inside of Rome. The apartment, with 17 foot ceilings and wooden accents, is very pleasing especially with the art pieces throughout and the pot lights in the ceiling. As it is an inside apartment facing an inner courtyard, it can be rather dark and noisy at times with the sounds reverberating, but that factor added to its authenticity. Real and homey, with an eat-in kitchen and small updated bathroom (very good water pressure and hot water) we loved our stay here. Illaria was helpful and honest in every way ; she arranged a taxi for us to the airport and warmly welcomed us to the apartment and to Rome. Grazie , Illaria.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely apartment for 3 nights on the beginning of our trip in Italy. We liked it so much that we stayed here again the last 3 nights! Signora Carmen is lovely and met us at the apartment to show us around. The neighborhood is very safe and a lovely place to start and end your trip to Italy. She also arranged for very cost-effective transportation to and from the airport. Thanks for everything!!

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.
