About Andrea

We are Andrew and Alice, born and raised in Rome. The house was initially great-grandparents Alice and then move on from generation to generation until the mother and then to Alice where she grew up and lived there until we got married and decided to move into a bigger house farther away from the center.

Andrea purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Andrea chose Trastevere

We decided to settle in the country, and having the good fortune of owning a home in one of the most typical and oldest district in the city, we thought it would be nice to have the opportunity to meet and greet people from all over the world are curious to experience this angle of Rome remained true and unspoiled by time.

What makes this apartment unique

The house is always bathed in sunlight and is located at the foot of the green Janiculum hill that can be seen looking out the windows of the hall. Just a few step from everything that is important and central, but at the same time placed in an internal street away from the traffic and bustle of nightlife.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It has been a dream come true and we can't think of a better way to have celebrated our 30th weffing anniversary. We will never forget our week here. We very much appreciate your warm welcome when we arrived and have found your advice helpful on several occasions. You have kept in touch with us and been very kind during the week to ensure that our stay was going well. It make a great difference to the quality of our stay in a city to feel welcomed and settled into the apartment the way you did.

The apartment has been very comfortable and is in such a charming area. We have felt part of this peaceful and friendly community for a week. It's is sad to leave ! We would love to came back to Rome again some day and would probably want to stay in trastevere (exploring it is a holiday itself !) and we would have no hesitation in staying at the apartment Alice again. We would look forward to this. Thank you so much for helping to make a magical holiday that extra bit special with your kindness. We hope to meet you again in the future.

Our very best wishes.

Wonderful host, beautiful apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was beautiful, well-equipped and comfortable. Everything we needed. A great oasis. And most of all, Andrea is a great host - we really enjoyed meeting him! And he was incredibly helpful - orienting us to the neighborhood, helping us with some tech difficulties, arranging transportation to the airport, etc. My only concern about the property was that the streets nearby felt isolated some nights - I would have felt uncomfortable at night had I been traveling alone. We would stay there again - Andrea is a wonderful host. Grazie mille!

No better place

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best finds we have had, and we have traveled the world. It's spacious, well appointed, conveniently located for transportation, stocked for the first time tourist, and supported by a couple dedicated to service. Close to the Vatican, a short bus ride to the Colosseum, walking distance to restaurants. To our friends who "only stay in four star hotels," we'll say, "don't come with us to Rome." We're staying at Alice in Trastevere.

Quiet, clean apartment with great hosts

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is clean, quiet, cosy and conveniently located very close to the Vatican and the heart of Trastevere. Would be ideal for a couple or a family with one child as it's a one-bedroom with an additional pull-out sofa bed in the living room. Kitchen is small but serviceable. Main living area includes a couch, coffee table and a small table for eating meals. The best aspect of this rental is the hosts, Alice and Andrea, who went out of their way to make my stay easy and enjoyable. Andrea arranged to have a car pick me up from the airport, which was a huge help. When I arrived at the apartment with the driver, Andrea was there to greet me outside and gave me a tour of the apartment and also recommended a few restaurants nearby which were great. They gave me a local street map and pointed out some interesting sites to visit, including a nearby botanical garden, as well as the location of markets to shop for food. The apartment building is very quiet and the immediate area very residential, although you are within a half-mile walk to the heart of the exciting nightlife of Trastevere. I was there at the beginning of summer when Rome gets quite hot, but the apartment stayed cool and the air conditioner in the bedroom worked well. Wifi worked great. Highly recommended place.

Perfect apartment and location.

  • 5 of 5

Andrea the owner arranged a car to meet us at the airport, which meant we arrived hassle free at the apartment, where he met us. Andrea was friendly and very helpful, marking information on a map and the apartment also had a notice board with restaurants marked, which was helpful. The apartment is clean, well equipped and it is described on the website and reviews. We found the location excellent, easy to get to the main sites, but being in Trastevere, there was no need to go anywhere else in the evening. We were not disappointed in Andrea's recommended restaurants and even went to one twice. We would definitely recommend the apartment for a stay in Rome. Thank you Andrea.
