BOUTIQUE PENTHOUSE & WONDEFUL TERRACE - FULL OPTIONAL - ROME CENTER

Villa Borghese & Parioli area Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Perfect Location - Renovated & Quiet apt – WiFi, AC, Sat TV - Customized welcome

If you are looking for an apartment that offers both central location and quiet surroundings, tourist sights and the real Roman lifestyle, this is the place! In one of the most beautiful areas of Rome, close to villa Borghese and at walking distance from Spanish Steps, it’s a delightful and romantic penthouse with a unique terrace overlooking the neighbouring park.

This unit is ‘full optional’ (WiFi, satellite TV, air-conditioning, free calls to Europe, USA, Canada, DVD, CD, washing-machine…) and the surroundings are plenty of resources (shops, supermarkets, restaurants, pizzerias, bars…) as well as very good bus connections, easy parking and beautiful parks.

The apartment ha been recently renovated and equipped with all the details that make it really nice and cosy, as we love our own home to be like, so to let you have a really comfortable and relaxing stay in Rome. It has a bright living room and a well-equipped compact kitchen, and upstairs a romantic bedroom (an authentic love nest!), with a double bed arranged with high-quality linens and the adjoining full bathroom with shower.

The private terrace is perfect for peaceful breakfasts and aperitifs surrounded by a splendid scenery. On the terrace you have at your disposal beach chairs and towels, to sunbathe far of prying eyes.

The apartment is located in the turret of an ancient villa, with a great view on the surroundings. The lift arrives at the third floor, then to rich the turret, one floor upper, there is a quite narrow winding staircase.

On your arrival, we’ll welcome you with a customized information kit. During your stay you can rely on a friendly and prompt assistance as we live in the same villa and will do our best for help you to enjoy your stay in Rome and ‘do as Romans do’.

For more information email us. We’ll reply within 24 hours (usually much less).

"UNSURPASSED HOSPITALITY"

"Unsurpassed Hospitality"
  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a wonderful stay in Rome due in large part to our lodging in the "Penthouse Apartment" and our hosts Marco and Lidia who are unsurpassed in their hospitality and assistance. The apartment was everything described in the listing, and the photos do not do it justice. The apartment was secure, spotless, and totally equipped for short term residents. The patio was an exceptional retreat, and a great place to begin the day with breakfast. It is important to note and believe that the neighborhood location of the apartment is excellent and very conducive to experience the local culture at a relaxed pace away from the frenzy of the downtown hotel district. The villa is steps away from a neighborhood square complete with fountain, restaurant, and a fine Bar/Café. We enjoyed morning coffee on the covered outdoor patio each day with the locals. By the 4th morning the Barista had memorized our "Café latte" order. The maps and reviews that Marco has prepared were exceptionally helpful for taking advantage of the gifts offered in the neighborhood from the location of grocery stores to the location of the best bakery. There are several moderately priced restaurants in walking distance. Marco provided detailed walking and bus maps to all of the major sights of the city helping us to move freely around the city and then back "home". Both Marco and Lidia checked in with us frequently assisting us in making tour reservations and printing tickets. Marco arranged a car to meet us at the airport at a rate less than the standard taxi. We were met at the meeting point and delivered to the door within 45 minutes. I highly recommend utilizing this service. Marco arranged it again for out return flight. Both Marco and Lidia seem to enjoy serving as hosts, almost like a relative welcoming you to their city for the first time. Stay here, you will not be disappointed.

A FANTASTIC PLACE TO STAY IN ROME

  • 5 of 5
We have just spent 6 nights in Rome - my first visit, my husband had been as a child. The apartment was a fabulous find and provided us with all that we needed for our stay. It was immaculate and I could not fault anything. The situation of the property enabled us to be able to walk in the centre of Rome and after a couple of days when our legs were tired we used the Metro. Marco and Lidia, the owners, provided us with a wealth of information that enabled us to explore not only the historic sights of the centre but also the area where they lived - which is well worth seeing.

BEAUTIFUL LOFT APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Europe and we decided to book apartments as it placed in the local community. The apartment was lovely over two levels plus the outside patio. Our hosts Lidia & Marco were great and extremely helpful and Marco even dropped us of at the Vatican for our visit. On arrival we found a home made Tiramisu and some nice snacks in the fridge which were lovely.

The apartment was well very comfortable and contained a book with lots of information of activities in Rome, transport information, suggestions where to eat and maps.

This was our last stay on our 5 week holiday and I have to say it was the nicest apartment with the added bonus of great hosts. I am happy to recommend anyone to stay in this apartment.

GREAT LOCATION, BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT AND VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
This is our fifth year staying in Rome for two or more weeks, and Marco & Lidia's vacation apartment is by far the best we have seen. It is small but beautifully renovated, with plenty of light and quite a lot of storage. A washing machine, WiFi and cable TV are included. One nice feature is a large terrace that overlooks a park. The apartment is on the fourth floor. There is an elevator that goes to the third floor, but then one must negotiate narrow, winding stairs to reach the apartment. These stairs are the one negative for those who are not agile; the apartment has great views of the Roman rooftops, however. The location is perfect - a nice, higher-end residential neighborhood that is only a few blocks from Via Nomantana and Villa Torlonia. Many restaurants are in the neighborhood, ranging from basic to elegant. We especially liked I Buttieri (steaks),Joe Padella (simple Italian), Pepe Verde (Italian) and Eleonora di arborea (fish - expensive) all within a few blocks. The apartment is convenient to the Metropolitana stops at Piazza Bologna and Policlinico, both of which are on the line that leads (in 10 minutes or so) to the Historical Center. An express bus stop to Via Corso and Via Veneto is only a few blocks away, and the apartment is within easywalking distance to Villa Borghese. Lastly, Marco & Lidia are excellent hosts. Their English is wonderful, they meet you with friendly smiles when you arrive, and they live right downstairs in the same building and respond immediately to any questions or problems. Lidia has prepared detailed maps and guidebooks for particular trips from the apartment to various sights around Rome, which is extremely helpful if this is your first visit. Overall, an excellent place to stay for a couple on their first (or when we return, our sixth!) visit to Rome!

CHARMING APARTMENT, GOOD LOCATION, NICE TERRACE

  • 5 of 5
We loved the place - the location is close to public transportation but away from the crowds. Marco and Lidia provided lots of information about places to visit, restaurants, getting around - everything we needed. There are nice views from the terrace - a park on one side, nice sunsets.

PENTHOUSE GEM

  • 5 of 5
It was in 2010 that we first came to Lidia and Marco’s apartment. We soon found out that we needed to look no further for accommodation in Rome. That is why we also came back in May 2013. And we will certainly stay in this apartment also for our next trip to Rome. We feel we have found a beautiful safe place and personal friends in Rome.
The apartment is at the top of the house and you have a view of a nice and quiet neighbourhood with a lot of greenery and from the private (sic ) terrace you look down to Paganini Park. There is very little traffic noise to be heard and that is exceptional in Rome.
Marco and Lidia are very caring and thoughtful and always discrete. The apartment contains every little item you may need when away from home. Whatever you forgot to bring, you will find it in the apartment.
Lidia has also made a very extensive information booklet. Maps and “how to get back” and all kinds of sightseeing information and much more.
To sum it up – this apartment and its hosts will give you happy days in Rome.

Most Roman people consider this quarter the place where they would like to live. The location, central and safe but not touristy, next to Villa Borghese and Via Veneto (known for Federico Fellini' s movie ‘La Dolce Vita'), is one of the best in Rome, a prestigious area of liberty villas and parks, at walking distance from historic center and very well connected with all the main sights. So, coming here, you have the chance to reach every interesting place of Rome in a short time, while enjoying a special place, apart from the mess of overcrowded areas.

Despite of the chaotic Roman traffic, it is a real hidden isle of peace, the ideal place to welcome you after a day spent wandering around the city or in and out of the shops although, just round the corner, everything you could possibly need is within walking distance: supermarkets, excellent restaurants and nice pizzerias, wine bars, markets and shopping centers, cafés, banks with ATM, pharmacies, kiosks, laundries, hospital, churches.

Termini railway station (terminal of trains and shuttles from Rome airports) and Tiburtina railway station are very close and well connected by bus/metro (just 10 min. by taxi).

Since the position and the prestige of the area, most Embassies and Consulates are located in the in the neighbourhood.

CONNECTIONS:

Many bus lines stops are just round the corner, metro station (‘Policlinico’) is 15 min on foot.

Since there are so many sites to visit in Rome, it’s impossible to stay close to all of them. The key is in having good connections that allow you to reach every place seamless.

And from over here you find lines to reach the Pantheon and Trevi fountain in 15 minutes, a little bit more for Coliseum or Vatican or Eataly or Trastevere, the Appian way by metro, the same for trains to Ostia antica, …

ATTRACTIONS IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD:

You find in the area the parks that makes Rome so enchanting as well as relevant historical and art sites:

VILLA BORGHESE is the most beautiful public park in Rome. It features a lake, temples, fountains, statues and several museums. The BORGHESE GALLERY, housed in the wonderful Villa Borghese, contains an unmissable collection of sculptures and pictures from masters like Bernini, Canova, Titian, Rubens, Raphael.

VILLA TORLONIA was the state residence of Mussolini since 1920s. The beautiful neoclassical villa is surrounded by the most renowned 'English landscape' garden in Italy.

The splendid COMPLEX of S. AGNES BASILICA and SANTA COSTANZA MAUSOLEUM, erected by the Emperor Constantine's daughter. It includes the CATACOMBS too and is an example unique of early Christian complex of buildings.

The CATACOMB OF PRISCILLA, known as the 'Queen of the Catacombs' in antiquity on account of the fact that seven early popes and many martyrs were buried there.

The MACRO - Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome, located in a former factory, exhibits works of Italian artists from the 1960s to this day.

The extraordinary QUARTIERE COPPEDE', a rather unknown attraction of Rome, just a few steps away. It is a group of Art-Nouveau buildings renowned for their architecture featuring floral, mythological and medieval effects, a fanciful style mixing Liberty and Gothic characters so that the Coppedé quarter feels like a setting straight out of a fantasy world.

VILLA ADA, one of the Rome's largest public park, was the former residence and hunting reserve of the Italian royal family.
