ELEGANT APARTMENTS IN VILLA ALONG THE VATICAN WALLS

Prati (Vatican area) Villa Rental Photos and Description

In the heart of Rome, at a few steps fom St.Peter`s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel is a small, Liberty style, villa built in 1923 and recently restored. The villa ''The Pomegranate'', surrounded by a small garden, offers a quiet, elegant green oasis in the very busy center of Rome which provides a tranquil retreat to the tourist. From our two terraces, it is possible to enjoy the view of the ancient walls designed by Michelangelo and of the Vatican gardens. Our bed and breakfast is equipped with private bathrooms, TV, WIFI and heating/air conditioning. The breakfast is served either in our elegant, luminous sitting room, decorated with stucco-works, overlooking the garden, or outside in the terrace (for people who stay one week or longer, we do not serve breakfast, but provide all the food necessary for a self-prepared breakfast). For breakfast, natural and organic food is served. Please mind that, in order to reach the apartments from the street, there is a staircase of about sixty steps.

About Gabrielle

I am a 33 years old journalist and I write for the English magazine Wanted in Rome. I attended the German School of Rome and later studied Political Science at the University of Rome. I am a very extroverted person and love meeting people from all countries.

Gabrielle purchased this villa in 2000

Why Gabrielle chose Prati (Vatican area)

Along with my parents Robert and Micaela, I decided to create a B&B inside our beautiful villa from the 1920s. Our B&B meets different requirements from usual B&B: we give a great importance to a personal approach with our clients, because we want to do our best to make their vacation unforgettable. We also provide them with all the information needed in order to make them feel at home.

What makes this villa unique

The location as well as the elegance and quality of our B&B. All the rooms have stucco-decorated roofs and elegant Italian pieces of furniture. We provide our clients with precious linens and cotton towels. Our homemade breakfast, served in China and silver ware, consists of biological marmelades with butter and toast, freshly baked pies, yoghurt, juices and an unforgettable Italian coffee.

Great location. Nice apartments!

  • 5 of 5
We rented both apartments as we were travelling with our three teenage children. The apartments are in a great location and despite being so close to the Vatican are very quiet. There are a number of stairs to descend to get to the apartments so be prepared but that aside we found the apartments to be very nice. Gabrielle greeted us on our arrival and she was very helpful. Breakfast in the dining room upstairs was a real treat each day. Our host was Gabrielle's father who is a very nice man and a gracious host. The aircon in the fuscia apartment is not great on a very hot Roman night but there is a fan which is most soothing. Close to transport and a reasonable cab fare from Centro Historico. Overall a very nice experience and a haven for weary travelers. Thankyou to Gabrielle and her father.

Your Best Option When Visiting Rome

  • 5 of 5
This was by far the best decision i made for our week long trip to Rome. We traveled to Rome with five people. Three of us including myself are in our upper 20's and we brought along two moms 50 and 60 y/o. The hosts were very good with communication everything was answered within twenty four hours. Before arriving she even offered and set us up with her driver to pick us up from the airport, which we agreed to. The apartments are just as described plus more. The entrance is right next to the Vatican wall. It's in a perfect position to get to and from the Metro, grocery store, The Vatican and St. Peters by foot. The views from the entrance gate to the apartment are breathtaking. You can see so much of Rome and feel like you are officially part of the city. Our apartments (the blue room and fuchsia room) had a common outside sitting area in between the outside the doors which was perfect for relaxing outside after a long day or waiting for someone else in the room to finishing getting ready. At the end of each day we would stop by the local grocery and get fresh cheese, meats, bread and wine (which has amazing prices, most wine was between 3-7 euros) and sit on the patio to relax and unwind from the day. Every morning we were served breakfast in the dining room. It was wonderful. There was always a warm welcome from the hosts mom. Usually they will talk with you about you day and assist you with anything you may need (directions, bookings for tours, restaurant suggestions). The host is also a journalist and writes columns for magazines and newspapers for Rome and travelers so she knows her stuff. We were served coffee, water, milk, and a different orange juice each day. There was always a bread like croissant or toast that was served with their home made jams and marmalade. There is also a lemon tart/cake that the host's mother makes that is to die for. I'll never forget that cake and will definitely be asking for the recipe. They serve everything on their fine china and take note to what you do and do not like. The rooms were as described. it was really nice having a refrigerator in each room and the space you would not get at any hotel. There is also access to the rooftop that has a spectacular view of the city. It was not noisy at all around where we were staying. There are no dumpsters or other hotels next to the location and the neighbors are nuns so it was very quaint. Overall we had an amazing experience and will be coming back. Very recommended

Lovely home-highly recommended

  • 5 of 5
Our family really enjoyed staying at this place...very close to the Vatican...in fact, the Vatican wall is across the street. Robert was also very helpful in recommending bus and metro routes and places to visit. He also recommended ways and insights to reduce overall expenses. Breakfast is also included in the price....and Robert prepares them elegantly. Patio area is nice for morning coffee and unwinding after a busy sightseeing day. Would definitely come back to this place again.

Secret Roman treasure

  • 5 of 5
I have dreamed of going to Rome my entire life. I had the most amazing time and the main reason my visit was so special was because of our stay in this beautiful villa. From the moment we arrived we couldn't believe our good fortune. The location was incredible with a view of the Vatican wall built by Michelangelo. As we walked through the gate we were greeted by Gabrielle and her family who made us feel like part of the family. Our rooms were cozy with every comfort we could ask for. We are breakfast in the amazing dining room every morning and gas all kinds of pastry and toast and coffee and tea. One evening after a long day of sightseeing our host came in and asked if he could offer us anything? Maybe a glass of wine? I said that would be wonderful. He comes back with a bottle of champagne and we all sat and had a drink and he told us some of the best stories. I felt like Audrey Hepburn in 'Ronan holiday.' It was truly a memory I will treasure fur the rest of my life.

Unfortunate surprise

  • 1 of 5
Run by a lovely family, what the pictures nevertheless fail to show is how little room is actually available, and the lack of closet space or really much of anywhere to store luggage or clothes. We were a family of three booked for three nights in the Blue suite, but departed after our first night as we found the accommodation seriously cramped and uncomfortable. If this were a relative's house you crashed overnight for free, conditions wouldn't matter. But travellers with even modest expectations would be hard put to accept its present shortcomings.

What a lovely place to stay in Rome!

  • 4 of 5
From our first meeting the service was fantastic. We were lost in Rome and
I phoned Gabrielle and she said I will find you. She hopped on her scooter and
found us with no problem. Then we followed her to the apartment. The rooms
were lovely, clean and nice big beds. The bathroom amenities very roomy.
Lovely sitting area for dinner, we cooked, and enjoyed our wine. She was very helpful getting us to all of the sights in Rome. Thank You, Cynthia,Stephen,Karie and Sal.
