About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, 5 Sleeps

Spectacular penthouse with big terraces over viewing the very heart of Rome. A stone's throw from the historical centre, just 250 metres from Piazza del Popolo, an extraordinary roof top apartment of 135 sq m opening onto 200 sq m panoramic terraces on three levels that offer a 360° breathtaking view on the city of Rome. On these terraces you can enjoy a drink or have dinner surrounded by beautiful flowers with a view on the quaint roof tops and the domes of the city centre, Villa Borghese gardens and the Pincio, Villa Medici- the French Academy, Trinità dei Monti, the Quirinale-the Presidential Palace and the Altare della Patria in Piazza Venezia.

The gorgeous, light and spacious rooms are furbished with original Italian antique furniture, and parquet wooden floors and they all open onto the beautiful terrace. They all have air-conditioning, double-glazed windows, thick curtains & shutters which completely cut out the light and the noise by night.

The apartment is located on the 5th floor of an elegant building dated 1924, with a smart entrance and a beautiful marble staircase. In 2016 this building was completely restored. The unique elevator is the same model as the one used to connect the private apartments of the Pope to the St. Peter's Basilica.

The apartment, full of charme, welcomes guests via a hallway, double living room and a dining room with a round table for up to ten people..

There are three bedrooms with three bathrooms: a master bedroom with double bed, the second bedroom with two single beds, the third bedroom with a single bed. All bathrooms are equipped with a bathtub and shower extension.

In the living room there is also an armchair with fold able bed within.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a 5 burner gas stove, electric oven, fridge and freezer, dishwasher and microwave .

There is air conditioning in the whole apartment, one in each bedroom and one in the living room. There is a television with digital channels, WiFi and independent heating.

Access to the apartment is via the elevator to the forth floor, and a flight of stairs to walk up.

The doorman is present throughout the week and on Saturday mornings. It is a very safe neighborhood. On Via Flaminia there are small grocery shops and a daily fruit, vegetable and fish market.

If you have a little child there is everything you might need: a baby cot, a baby seat, many games, books and a wonderful, historical park at just 3 minutes walking distance (Villa Borghese) as well as the 'Museo dei Bambini' (Children's Museum).

About Veronika Garms

Visiting other countries, meeting people belonging to other cultures, is my great passion. I have traveled all around the world, lived in many different homes, hotels, apartments, and I know what makes a traveler feel at home. I will try to offer this to our guests. I grew up in Italy as a foreigner, having Austrian parents, and then settled down here marrying an Italian, that's why I know and love this country profoundly. I will love to share my knowledge with those who come to our home. Having myself two little children, I know what it means to travel with children, and our home will be really child friendly, full of toys, games, books and other useful things. I believe that traveling with children is wonderful!

Why Veronika Garms chose Rome

We live in the same building, and this makes it very easy for us to be always present for our guests.

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this amazing house (with 3 levels of rooftop with panoramic views of Rome!) for 3 days. Everything about our stay was great. Eleonora and Veronika could not be more gracious and helpful and kind. The location is perfect. The house itself is bright and very comfortable. There is an elevator but you need to climb a flight of stairs to get to this penthouse apartment, so that may be an issue for some people. Will definitely recommend this place to all my friends!

This apartment is just as lovely and welcoming as the pictures suggest. There is an elevator in this charming 1920's building but please note that this penthouse apartment is up one additional flight of stairs. The location is superb and Veronika was on site to help in any ways we needed. We stayed a month, cooked a bit and enjoyed the terraces. Don't miss the restaurant Osteria St. Ana in the neighborhood. We can not imagine a better place to stay while in Rome.

Exploring with the Kids

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to take our daughter, son in law and granddaughter for a visit to Rome. As previous reviews stated the place is elegant with an outstanding roof patio that provided a 360 degree view. Three bed rooms and three bathrooms provided privacy for us all. Additionally we had a fully working kitchen, a dining room, living room,library and a foyer. Each one of the rooms had access to the roof patio equipped wit tables and chairs.

Since we did not need our car while in Rome the owners even provided a garage for our car free of charge while we stayed there. I cant wait to bring our friends there for our next visit.

Chase the Winter Blues under the Roman Sun

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I live in Paris and wanted a break from the dark and chilly Paris winter. What better city to choose than Rome? We had the great good fortune to find this penthouse apartment close to Piazza del Popolo, an area which we know well and like very much. We were planning a two month stay (January and February) and know that longer stay guests have different expectations from short term ones. Not only did we want an apartment that felt like our home, but we wanted to be able to have occasional guests and I am a serious amateur pianist and wanted to have a piano to play. It sounded impossible, but we found our Roman home here and have been very happy with our stay. Other renters have commented on the lovely terraces--because it's been cold, we have only had lunch once on the terrace, but we have the sun and sky every day, which is a great pleasure even when it's raining or cold outside. With the owners' assistance, I was able to have a piano and I especially appreciate their willingness to help me with this. The apartment is comfortably heated and light is good in all the rooms. We have found the layout of the apartment very convenient; each bedroom has its own bathroom and the living areas can be easily separated from the bedrooms, so people have have privacy and comfort with different activities. We loved having the art and personal items in the apartment, carpets and Italian and French books.

The area is one that we especially like. This is our second winter stay in Rome and we know both the Flaminio and Prati neighborhoods and like them very much. We easily found several restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the apartment as well as many in the area between the Piazzas di Spagna and Popolo which are welcoming, not touristic and have authentic cuisine. It's an easy walk to Castel St. Angelo, Piazza Cavour and the Vatican and the metro transport is excellent. Grocery shopping is walkable; there are several traditional shops on Ripetta, a very good Carrefour at Piazza di Spagna and a convenient Pam and covered market, also in easy walking distance, in Prati.

All of the previous renters have commented on the hospitality of Veronika and Eleanora. We had the same experience, but with an extra "plus." On arrival at Termini, my wallet was stolen, with credit cards, cash and residence papers. Veronika was more than helpful with the steps we had to take--police declaration and recovery

Fit for a "diamond jubilee" celebration

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this gorgeous villa for a special celebration and week in Italy. The location was perfect for tours in Rome (AND day trips to Florence, Positano and Orvieto). The week in August that we were there was quite hot for Rome and the AC provided a wonderful retreat after a long day of fantastic sight seeing. The villa is even more elegant than pictures suggest and the view is beyond compare. I will definately recommend this villa to anyone that I know who is planning a trip to Italy!!

I have rented through HomeAway several times in the past, all with success, but nothing like this. I stayed at the apt for 6 nights. There were 6 of us - which included 4 teenagers / young adults.

The apt was beautiful, each room was gorgeous in its own right. The kitchen was updated and included everything we needed. The apt was close (or within walking distance) to all the sights, which allowed us to eat in many meals.

The balconies were amazing! we sat up top everynight and enjoyed the view (and some wine). Veronika was a fantastic host - secured us car pickups to and from the airport as well as assisted with reservations to key sites.

I can't say enough good things about our experience, everyone was sad to leave. I would certainly recommend this apt to anyone. Thank you to Veronika and her mother in law for all the help!
