Spectacular penthouse with big terraces over viewing the very heart of Rome. A stone's throw from the historical centre, just 250 metres from Piazza del Popolo, an extraordinary roof top apartment of 135 sq m opening onto 200 sq m panoramic terraces on three levels that offer a 360° breathtaking view on the city of Rome. On these terraces you can enjoy a drink or have dinner surrounded by beautiful flowers with a view on the quaint roof tops and the domes of the city centre, Villa Borghese gardens and the Pincio, Villa Medici- the French Academy, Trinità dei Monti, the Quirinale-the Presidential Palace and the Altare della Patria in Piazza Venezia.
The gorgeous, light and spacious rooms are furbished with original Italian antique furniture, and parquet wooden floors and they all open onto the beautiful terrace. They have double-glazed windows, thick curtains & shutters which completely cut out the light and the noise by night.
The apartment is located on the 5th floor of an elegant building dated 1924, with a smart entrance and a beautiful marble staircase. The unique elevator is the same model as the one used to connect the private apartments of the Pope to the St. Peter's Basilica.

There are three bedrooms with three bathrooms: a master bedroom with double bed, the second bedroom with two single beds, the third bedroom with a foldable bed. All bathrooms are equipped with a bathtub and shower extension.
In the living room there is also an armchair with fold able bed within.

Visiting other countries, meeting people belonging to other cultures, is my great passion. I have traveled all around the world, lived in many different homes, hotels, apartments, and I know what makes a traveler feel at home. I will try to offer this to our guests. I grew up in Italy as a foreigner, having Austrian parents, and then settled down here marrying an Italian, that's why I know and love this country profoundly. I will love to share my knowledge with those who come to our home. Having myself two little children, I know what it means to travel with children, and our home will be really child friendly, full of toys, games, books and other useful things. I believe that traveling with children is wonderful!
We live in the same building, and this makes it very easy for us to be always present for our guests.
My husband and I live in Paris and wanted a break from the dark and chilly Paris winter. What better city to choose than Rome? We had the great good fortune to find this penthouse apartment close to Piazza del Popolo, an area which we know well and like very much. We were planning a two month stay (January and February) and know that longer stay guests have different expectations from short term ones. Not only did we want an apartment that felt like our home, but we wanted to be able to have occasional guests and I am a serious amateur pianist and wanted to have a piano to play. It sounded impossible, but we found our Roman home here and have been very happy with our stay. Other renters have commented on the lovely terraces--because it's been cold, we have only had lunch once on the terrace, but we have the sun and sky every day, which is a great pleasure even when it's raining or cold outside. With the owners' assistance, I was able to have a piano and I especially appreciate their willingness to help me with this. The apartment is comfortably heated and light is good in all the rooms. We have found the layout of the apartment very convenient; each bedroom has its own bathroom and the living areas can be easily separated from the bedrooms, so people have have privacy and comfort with different activities. We loved having the art and personal items in the apartment, carpets and Italian and French books.
The area is one that we especially like. This is our second winter stay in Rome and we know both the Flaminio and Prati neighborhoods and like them very much. We easily found several restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the apartment as well as many in the area between the Piazzas di Spagna and Popolo which are welcoming, not touristic and have authentic cuisine. It's an easy walk to Castel St. Angelo, Piazza Cavour and the Vatican and the metro transport is excellent. Grocery shopping is walkable; there are several traditional shops on Ripetta, a very good Carrefour at Piazza di Spagna and a convenient Pam and covered market, also in easy walking distance, in Prati.
All of the previous renters have commented on the hospitality of Veronika and Eleanora. We had the same experience, but with an extra "plus." On arrival at Termini, my wallet was stolen, with credit cards, cash and residence papers. Veronika was more than helpful with the steps we had to take--police declaration and recovery
My family and I stayed in this gorgeous villa for a special celebration and week in Italy. The location was perfect for tours in Rome (AND day trips to Florence, Positano and Orvieto). The week in August that we were there was quite hot for Rome and the AC provided a wonderful retreat after a long day of fantastic sight seeing. The villa is even more elegant than pictures suggest and the view is beyond compare. I will definately recommend this villa to anyone that I know who is planning a trip to Italy!!
I have rented through HomeAway several times in the past, all with success, but nothing like this. I stayed at the apt for 6 nights. There were 6 of us - which included 4 teenagers / young adults.
The apt was beautiful, each room was gorgeous in its own right. The kitchen was updated and included everything we needed. The apt was close (or within walking distance) to all the sights, which allowed us to eat in many meals.
The balconies were amazing! we sat up top everynight and enjoyed the view (and some wine). Veronika was a fantastic host - secured us car pickups to and from the airport as well as assisted with reservations to key sites.
I can't say enough good things about our experience, everyone was sad to leave. I would certainly recommend this apt to anyone. Thank you to Veronika and her mother in law for all the help!
We were lucky enough to stay her for a number of weeks in June of 2013. Veronika and Elenora could not have been more helpful, accommodating, kind or wonderful! The rooms are spacious with a formal dining room and living room, a rare level of comfort in Italy. The terraces are fabulous! We spent much of our time outside and greatly appreciated the sense of openess and spaciousness in the bustling city. I also enjoyed having a real kitchen, and used it often. And the Air Cons worked well. The beds were hard and the showers could be a bit better, AND it was our favorite VRBO in a 7 week trip.
Is it perfect, no, but it's darn close!!
Veronika was the perfect hostess. She provided great recommendations for the area and went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed our time in Rome. The apartment is exactly as described but even more beautiful than the pictures. The apartment is ideal for families and very romantic for a couple. We didn't want to leave and hope the coins we threw in the Trevi Fountain will bring us back to Rome + the beautiful apartment. Do yourself a huge favor and book this apartment if it's available. You won't regret it!
An ideal home to stay with children!!! We all just loved it.
The children could run and play on the terrace. This terrace is amazing! And everything was within walking distance, the old city with all its monuments just around the corner...You can come back anytime to have a little rest!
The apartment was very clean, warm, welcoming, beautiful and we really enjoyed staying in this elegant building.
Veronika was just lovely, easygoing and very, very helpful! She was a wonderful host. We highly recommend this wonderful penthouse and we will be back, thats for sure!!!
