Property description

In the quiet, central and green residential area of San Saba - Porta Ardeatina, near the majestic Aurelian walls, this 68 sq. m. (732 sq. ft.) apartment is on the second floor of a charming villa built in the 1930s, surrounded by a scented garden of orange trees.
If you are looking for a peaceful residence in the heart of the archaeology, history, art and ‘Great Beauty’ of Rome, “Villino Rosso” is the ideal place to stay. Far from the traffic, hustle and bustle of some areas of the city, the newly renovated apartment (June 2014) is bright, comfortable and decorated with pieces of period furniture. It is a convenient starting place to explore the many attractions of the eternal city and a cosy place to relax after sightseeing.
The 68 sq. m. (732 sq. ft.) apartment has just undergone renovation (finished June 2014) and can accommodate up to 6 guests. It is made up of:
- 1 master bedroom with a continental king size bed (160 cm × 200 cm, 63 in × 79 in)
- 1 bedroom with a continental double bed (140 cm × 200 cm, 55 in × 79 in)
- living room/dining room with a continental king-sized sofa bed (160 cm × 200 cm, 63 in × 79 in), dining table for 6 people, full HD LED television
- fully equipped kitchen and with breakfast table for four people
- bathroom with comfortable shower and bidet
The house has new thermal and sound insulating windows.
Villino Rosso holiday apartment is authorized by Rome City Council (Dipartimento Turismo SCIA prot. QA72014/6064).
Many attractions are easily reached on foot: the Baths of Caracalla (11 mins), the Aventine Hill (12 mins), the Circus Maximus (13 mins), the Colosseum (20 mins), the Forum (25 mins). Nearby are the lively and characteristic areas of Testaccio and Ostiense that offer a great number of restaurants, pizzerias, taverns, ice cream shops, markets, shops and clubs. At 9 mins from the apartment (through the underground pedestrian passage of Ostiense train station) is Eataly, a 17.000 sq. m. space offering the best in Italian wines and food. Not only can you buy top quality products, but you can also eat in one of the several thematic and gourmet restaurants.
At 200m from the house is a café and a small bakery selling sandwiches, bread, biscuits and all that you need for breakfast. In viale Giotto (5 mins on foot) there is a supermarket which also has fruit, vegetables, meat, fresh bread, meat and a deli. The nearest open-air market is San Saba (5 min on foot) in quaint piazza Bernini, with a few typical stalls selling fruit, vegetables, meat, cold cuts and cheese. There is also a bakery in the square. A 15 min walk will take you to the large covered market of Testaccio in via Galvani, which offers a great variety of fruit, vegetables, fish, meat, bread, pastries, wine, flowers etc., as well as stalls where you can taste traditional roman dishes, open air cafés and shops selling shoes, clothes, accessories, pottery. Finally, on Thursday and Saturday morning in piazza Nicoloso da Recco, a small square 20m from the apartment, you will find a truck selling local fruit and vegetables from the Roman countryside.
Opera and ballet lovers shouldn’t miss the summer season of the Opera of Rome held in the unique setting of the Baths of Caracalla. An interesting museum within walking distance is the Montemartini Centre in via Ostiense: an extraordinary combination of industrial archeology and classical art, where a collection of ancient sculptures is exhibited in a former power plant. Also look out for the exhibitions at the Macro Testaccio, an exhibition space for contemporary art in a former 19 th century slaughterhouse.
