Home In The Garden In The Heart of Rome

Bedrooms 1
Space 40 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

Sleeps 3. 2 Bedrooms. 1 Bathroom.

A hop, skip and a jump from Italy's most famous fountain, the Casa trevi garden is a treasure. Find yourself in an astonishingly peaceful courtyard, all alive trees, scented oranges and a fountain inhabited by small turtles. Though you're in Rome's most vibrant heart, not a sound penetrates from outside. The apartments are on the ground floor of one of old buildings (maroniti convent) and open directly off the courtyard. Interiors are bright, soothing and minimalist in the most beautiful way: white walls and terracotta, glass shelving and concealed lighting. A mix of modern and brocante finds. Hobs and fridges are provided in airy, white kitchen. Shower room is gorgeous.

On three sides are 17th century buildings in yellows, ochers and reds; on the fourth, a modern glass building reflects the sun on the courtyard.

About Marta Nicolini

My name is Marta. I'm economist and President of Heath Insurance no-profit. My passion is restore the apartments in the old buildings in the heart of Rome. My hobby is sculpture. I love to travel

Marta Nicolini purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Marta Nicolini chose Rome

I chose to buy CASA TREVI GARDEN N. 2 because that apartment is in a big beautiful garden and in the heart of Rome, close Trevi's Fountain and Spanish Steps.

The garden is far to the street and it is very quiet. There are some fountains with fishes and turtles. Many year ago the building was a friary, inside there is a church and cloister. When the building was restore they found a Roman 'Domus' with columns and mosaic flooring. The window door overlook a wonderful inner garden complete with orange trees, olive trees and fountains in which fish and tortoises swim.

What makes this apartment unique

You can live in a peaceful place.

Just outside the main door you can find the most famous marvels of Rome’s historical centre: Fontana di Trevi; Spanish Steps ; the Pantheon; Via del Babuino and Via Margutta with their bustling artists’ studios and antique shops.

You can find many bars and restaurants too.

Lovely apartment in the heart of Rome

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful apartment. Fantastic location, only 2 mins walk from the Trevi Fountain. Marta was very helpful and made us feel welcome. Would definitely stay again - highly recommend this apartment.

Short break in Rome

  • 4 of 5

Travelled to Rome with my 11 year-old daughter for a 4-night stay. This apartment was in an excellent location for the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Pantheon, Piazza Novona and Campo de Fiori (in other words, the location was perfect!). Even though we were in the midst of everything, the apartment and garden area provided a peaceful oasis. It was also conveniently just a few yards from a small supermarket which we used every day. The only slightly negative things to were that the apartment could do with a little TLC (a lick of paint, and a thorough clean in the shower area) and if you get the apartment for 2 to 3 there's an adjoining door (which is locked) to Mara's other apartment. This was fine for us as our neighbours were quiet and considerate but it may be a problem if you have noisy neighbours.

Delightful and Amazing

  • 4 of 5

This place is in the center of it all! We walked to and from the colusieum and in doing so discovered just how close we were to Trevi Fountain. Walk out, turn right and you're on your way to a fun day.

On another day we took the subway to the Vatican. On our return, we walked home, ate pizza at a delightful street restaraunt and of course a stop for gelato. Peach & Carmel are 2 of my favorites.

BEST OF ALL is the delightful host!! Marta is a 5 star in our opinion. Friends Forever. She made our lifetime trip to Italy, so wonderful. Thank you Marta!

We had a lovely few days in Rome in April 2014, staying in Trevi apartment 1.

This was a fantastic central location, and it was so easy for us to get to all the sites as we wished.

What we found most amazing was that

- from outside the main entrance we were a few yards only from all the exciting bustle around Trevi Fountain, a real tourist hub with loads of restaurants and shops

- while our apartment itself was,as it were in a different world, so quiet and sheltered in a leafy garden cloister.

Thank you very much for a great holiday!

The flat was small but had what you needed for a very comfortable visit. The great things about it were how close it was to the main sites, good places to eat very nearby, a lovely garden and an almost miraculous level of peace and quietness so close to busy places like the Trevi Fountain.And the owner is extremely helpful.
