Truely a Roman Holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a find. We fell in love with this "home away from home". I love to cook and the kitchen and barbaque were more than I could expect, when, that is we weren't sampling the local cuisine. With kids in tow the large yard and adjacent pool were a godsend. I think the best thing was we weren't in the tourist area and shopped and ate were the locals shopped and ate. But when we did want to venture out to see the sights, the bus and metro were within spitting distance. We want to thank the Sanna's for remarkable hospitality. We'll be back.

A very comfortable place to be, with a lovely garden, plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 little kids,

  • 4 of 5

We were one week in this lovely house, with our son and his wife and our two grandchildren of 1 and 2,5 years old. We recommand this place for sure to friends and family. There was a fine parking place for our car, the house is cosy and comfortable, with plenty of room for us, and many places to sit inside or outside, for breakfast and other meals. The kitchen is fully equiped, the garden is super, with olive tree, sun and shadow, flowers and butterflies, many birds and a fine and safe playing ground for the two kids. The metro next door is fine, in 20 minutes we were in the center of Roma. Thera are shops and supermarket at the other side of the main street, so we had fresh bread every morning. The communication with our pleasant host Lidia was super, thanks for all her help, advice, the child furniture etc. We did not used the swimmingpool next door, because we are not so sportive and it was indoor. We guess in the summer they open the roof? Only the neighbourhood was not so outgoing, not a nice surrounding for a little walk in the evening, a drink at a bar. For us that was no problem, because the little kids had to sleep, and we had our drink under the olivetree. With the sound of the cicades (or "krekels") all around us.

Your perfect base for a Rome visit

  • 5 of 5

An ideal base to visit rome, very convenient location, a few minutes away from the metro station Monti Tiburtini and free parking in front of the house.

The house looks much better than on the pictures. You have enough room for a entire family. There is a nice garden to sun and grill and sit outside. Also a table tennis table. The interior design is inspired from Morocco. The bed in the bedroom is very comfortable for a couple. We loved also the good smell in the garden from the fig tree next door.

During our visit unfortunately it was sometimes a little bit loud outside in the garden, because of the nearby public swimming pool. The jacuzzi also did not work.

The house is located in a popular and cheap neighbourhood with a nice pizzeria, bakery and small supermarket next door. We can also recommend the pedicure for only 15€.

Some advices for Rome:

Don't use your car, only the metro, one way costs 1.50€, or a 24 hour card 7€.

Last but not least, the owner Lidia was a very lovely and helpful host. She gave us a lot of nice advice to visit Rome.

Owner's Response: Dear Monika, thank you for your nice feedback. As I live in France, I am rarely in Rome so it has been a pleasure to meet such a lovely couple as you are. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay. Your input related to the sport center is important to me and will take care of it. We choosed this house because it is situated in an unique location with all comforts and quality services and we prefer to hear playing around than hard Roman traffic & smog.:) All the best and you are welcome any time!

Maison idéalement située

  • 5 of 5

Dans un quartier aux "charmes populaires", la maison est idéalement située pour visiter Rome, une station de métro est toute proche. Elle offre toutes le commodités attendues en terme de confort et de bien être, elle est très agréable pour les vacances. De plus, la maison est située dans un quartier qui dispose de commerces de proximité et offre toutes les commodités. Je recommande vivement cette maison. Lydia que nous avons croisée, est très serviable et fera tout pour rendre votre séjour agréable.

superbe séjour et Villa très agréable

  • 5 of 5

La situation géographique était idéale surtout que nous étions que des filles.

La villa est éloignée de la route du coup les nuits étaient au calme presque comme si nous étions en campagne alors qu'en cinq minutes on est au métro ou à l'arrêt de bus.

Nous empruntions un raccourcis qui nous fesait passer par le club de sport à coté, très agréable. La maison est bien sécurisée; La décoration de la maison vous fait bien ressentir que vous n'êtes pas dans votre habituel décors et en même temps on est très vite à l'aise et on se sent comme chez nous. La villa est propre. Le chauffage fonctionne et l'eau chaude fonctionnent très bien. La cuisine est très opérationnelle.

Les repas pris au jardin étaient agréables.

L'autoroute est tout près.

Juste en face du métro "monti tiburtini", il y a une pizzeria agréable, un vendeur de légumes fruits, de glaces et aussi pour compléter le petit déjeuner il y a un bar qui fait des jus avec des fruits frais (orange sanguine et citron est excellent).

Il y a beaucoup de belles choses à voir à Rome. J'ai vraiment eu un coup de cœur pour la Fontaine de Trevi. C'est tout simplement une merveille !

Pas loin de la fontaine de trévi sur la rue pietonne se trouve une petite boutique de maroquinerie où l'on trouve de très beaux sacs en cuir avec des prix très attractifs.

Le colisé est gigantesque.

Les italiens sont chaleureux.

Je conseille vraiment cette location de villa car je trouve qu'elle est idéalement bien située ; je conseille aussi un séjour à Rome, c'est une ville riche en histoire où il y a toujours quelques choses à faire, à voir...

J'espère y retourner.
