Stefan and Jill have lived in Rome for six years. They have four adult children and have lived in London, the South of France and Rome over the past 30 years. Stefan is an art dealer and Jill an artist.
No one will argue that Rome is the most beautiful city in the world!
The apartment has been decorated to a high standard and has a very quirky and ecclectic flavour often leading guests to say that they have wanted to spend more time in the apartment then walking around the city. There are many comfortable sofas to sit on and romantic vistas out onto the inner courtyard of this very beautiful and gracious building.
My husband and I spent two months in the elegantly appointed apartment in an historic building in the Monti neighborhood. From the hand-painted high ceilings to the gorgeous mosaic terrazzo floors, the apartment was stunning - filled with antiques and beautiful artwork. Within easy walking distance to excellent restaurants, unique boutiques, and food shops. Rome's monuments, churches, art treasures, and shopping were all within reach either by walking or a short subway ride. The kitchen was well-stocked, the bed and bath linens were lovely, and the assortment of dishes and glasses was ample whether it was just the two of us or if we were entertaining guests. I can't say enough good about the apartment and Jill, who was at the ready with advice, suggestions, and help. We were treated like family.
We could not have chosen a more beautiful apartment and location for our family trip to Rome! We slept 3 couples beautifully. All the rooms were large and very comfortable. With the elevator, my elderly parents had no problems navigating the few stairs to the entrance. Very cute restaurants within walking distance to choose from. Recommend the car service from the airport to the hotel. Jill did an outstanding job of helping us with anything we needed. Really enjoyed coming home in the afternoon to enjoy wine and cheese appetizers on the roof terrace and talk about our day. Thank you Jill.
Such a beautiful apartment. The location is great. Jill went above and beyond to make certain we knew where to dine, tours, and who to pick us up at the train station. One unforgettable event was having a private chef create dinner for us on the roof top terrace. Rome will always have a special place in our hearts. Thank you Jill!
Five of us stayed here from 28 August to 6 September 2014. Lovely and comfortable apartment, clean, well-located in an authentic Roman neighborhood filled with artisanal shops and fun restaurants within walking distance of wherever you want to walk to; or a short hike to taxi and bus stands and a tad bit further to Termini. Having stayed in several other Rome locations, we really loved this Monti area because it was so off-the-grid yet so close to everywhere. We walked from the flat to the Spanish Steps and Popolo in about 20 minutes, and to many other destinations (Navona, Trastevere, Fiori, Campidoglio, Quiranale and so much more) in about the same time.
We also appreciated the wonderful restaurants, bars and gelato stops in the neighborhood, all authentic, local and charming. And the shops of emerging artisans -- potters, clothing designers, chocolatiers, cheesemongers and the like, distinguish this neighborhood from the ubiquity of the same tiresome parade of retailers elsewhere.
Most especially, the flat was perfect for 5 of us. The owner, Jill, and her team, could not have been more lovely and helpful in every way. Having rented many properties in Europe and elsewhere I believe Jill is by far the most engaged, hands-on and responsive owner in my experience. We hosted a party on the roof-top terrace (exclusive to the apartment) and it seemed that everyone in the building pitched in to make our party absolutely perfect. And it was!
The Galleria apartment is a wonderful place to stay in Rome. Located in a great neighborhood (Monti) where you have the opportunity to interact with the locals and wonderful restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. Jill Barnes-Dacey is wonderful hostess, and made numerous suggestions to help with our stay. The apartment itself is very spacious, and can sleep six. It is decorated with very nice artwork and has everything in the apartment you need. I highly recommend staying here if you are going to be in Rome for 3 or more days.
Our family of 7 includes adult children ages 18-25. We stayed at the Galleria apartment in March, 2014. Our stay in Rome was fantastic, due in large part to this clean, safe, quiet and beautifully decorated apartment located in the Monti area.
There is more than enough space to accommodate a family of even our size to relax after a long day. Yet, the setting is intimate and is very accurately represented by the photos. We prepared and ate some of our meals in the apartment, but also took advantage of a number of the very good restaurants in the area--all within a few minutes' walk. There is a market right around the corner for groceries also.
The location in the Monti area is very good. The neighborhood, like the apartment, is clean and safe. It gave us a memorable feel for Rome. We chose to walk to most locations and attractions. However, we also took advantage of taxis and public transport, including buses and the subway system in order to reach other locations such as a nighttime AC Roma game and the Vatican.
Jill is very kind. She corresponded with us several times before the trip in order to help with the arrangements and to reassure us.
We would definitely stay here again, and I would recommend this apartment and location to anyone traveling to Rome!
The area of Monti is a favoured Roman part of town loved for its ambience of 'real Rome' with the few remaining artisan galleries and workshops in its midst. It is a rich atmosphere with important churches and monuments, fabulous restaurants, the famous shopping district of Via Condotti a ten minute walk, ICE CREAM SHOPS GALORE, supermarket around the corner, open air bus tours one street over as are all main line buses and a taxi rank. We can arrange for tour guides to fit every interest and need. Guests can visit in the morning the wonderful bakery around the corner and bring back some of Rome's best 'Cornetti' (croissants) to enjoy on the remarkable terrace overlooking the city - from here plan out your day and which sites to see!
