I am a writer - producer

Isabella S. Castriota purchased this apartment in 1987

I acquired this property when I was still very young. A disgrace (a serious accident with my scooter when I was returning from class at the University of Rome) became a grace (the insurance finally paid and it became the first down payment). I bought this flat at an auction, without seeing it! It was a blind date and it worked. I still love it and love to share it with friends and guests.

I chose the area of Campo de´ Fiori before it became fashionable. Rome, for me, is first of all historic Rome.

I don't live in Rome all year round and I like to share. It is once to feel that other people will feel like at home in Rome, while I'm not there.

Hospitality is an art, difficult to achieve, but we try to make our guests feel comfortable, almost like at home. My sister and I treat our guests as friends.

We care for the culture of peace, which includes hospitality, and sustainable development.

Profits from these rentals go to finance social projects in developing countries.

This flat is unique because it is located in one of the most lively areas of historic Rome. Campo de ´ Fiori changes from dawn to midnight. You will find out by yourself.

The building is one the few fifteenth-century buildings decorated with frescos on the façade. It took a long time to find out the author, Polidoro da Caravaggio, who called the beautiful composition 'L'invidia e la fortuna' (The envy and the good luck).

The flat is on the top and last floor. It includes a large terrace with views of Roman roofs and the sixteenth-century English College tower with its pleasant bell. It has been completely restored, offering all the comforts necessary to contemporary life.

JUST WHAT IS WANTED TO STAY IN ROME

  • 5 of 5
An apartment in the historic center of Rome...It's a real home. Warm in feeling (But with AC), book-filled, all the necessary equipment. And an elegant shower. Since it's on the top floor, it's a climb, but the stairs are railed and well lit and I'm 76 and had no trouble. Did I mention the terrace for a predinner glass of wine and the olives bought in Campo De' Fiori which is a beautiful short walk away?
The owner, and her sister, were thoughtful about recommendations -- Lucifero's, just down the street was a special dinner favorite -- and about helping with reservations for cars for station/airport transfers. Everything was clean, neat, and charming. I'd be pleased to go again.

WONDERFUL CENTRAL FLAT WITH GREAT CHARACTER

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying in this flat. Isabella made booking really straightforward and looked after us, booking transport to and from the airport which made life easy. Her lovely sister Lucia met us at the flat and showed us everything. It is walking distance to both the main Roman remains and the Vatican. The flat itself is full of character - and books. Not many holiday apartments come complete with an entire library. The kids loved the secret doors through to the bedroom. We were also very grateful not to have to check out early in the morning as our flight back was not until the afternoon. This made our last day easy and enjoyable. Many thanks!

WONDERFUL STAY IN ROME ON VIA DEL PELLEGRINO!

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a wonderful trip to Italy, which culminated in 5 days in Rome at this wonderful flat on Via del Pellegrino, just steps away from Campo de Fiori. The location is terrific. We walked to everything we saw in Rome. The apartment is clean, comfortable, attractive and very convenient. We would definitely return here if we visit Rome again in the future. Isabella was exceptionally helpful, as was her sister Lucia, who met us to let us in and give us our keys. Isabella provided lots of useful information about Rome and the neighborhood, and arranged for a driver to come right to the apartment to pick us up and take us to the airport for our return flight. We recommend this location highly. The climb up the steps just gives you permission to have another gelato or helping of pasta!

GREAT EXPERIENCE IN THE HEART OF OLD ROME

  • 4 of 5
Our family of 4 loved our stay in Pellegrino Terrace. The apartment was large by Rome standards and the terrace was a great space. We had breakfast there each morning and enjoyed the Rome summer nights by the light of the moon. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go from the apartment. The location was steps away from the Campo di Fiore which was great for getting fresh fruits and vegetables. The Piazza Navona was less than 10 minutes away.

The apartment had a homey feel to it. It felt like visiting a friends home. There are lots of books, maps and tour guidebooks in the apartment; many in English. The owner, Isabella was great. She helped us out with lots of local tips on places to shop, eat, and visit. She even arranged for a private car to and from the airport at a price cheaper than a taxi. In our short stay (5 nights) we had a stronger experience of local culture during this stay thanks to Isabella and Pellegrino Terrace.

The apartment has airconditioning, but I recommend keeping the inside doors closed to get the bedroom and living to a nice temp. The kitchen is small, but functional. It has a large fridge by Italian standards. I cooked meals at home and found all I needed except for a good sharp knife - so I bought one at a local store for 6 euros. The bathroom was great. Plenty of room in the shower and 2 different showerheads. I loved the mosaic tile work in there. Only one small mirror though for getting ready for the evening. The bedroom was very big. The bed was comfy. Our son slept on the day bed in the library and was comfortable. The living room/dining area was average size, but the addition of the terrace made a big difference. We had our morning and evening meals out there.

We did not mind the stairs at all, I was expecting them to be much more challenging after reading other reviews, but they were an easy trip up.

Don't miss the wonderful local shops and bars on Via Pellegrino. I bought some beautiful jewelry and a handbag at shops on the street. The owner of one shop gave me a map of local handcrafters that I used during our trip - great resource if you are looking for artist-created items.

Overall it was a wonderful experience. I would rent Pellegrino Terrace again and recommend it to friends.

WONDERFUL APARTMENT!

  • 5 of 5
Just back from an amazing vacation in Italy. This apartment was by far our best accommodation during our 3 week stay in Italy. Right from the start Isabella was prompt in replying to any questions we had. She was extremely organized in services offered to us. We used the car service she offered to us twice without any problems. While at the apartment we kept in communication with Isabella per email and she offered excellent suggestions. Before our departure from Canada, she sent us practical tips and restaurant suggestions.
The location of the apartment was excellent and it was extremely quiet. We used the terrace every morning and evening. We were traveling with our teenage daughter and son and there was plenty of room.
Upon departure we had several hours until our flight. As suggested by Isabella, we put our luggage in storage at the airport and went to Fiumicino (the town). Fiumicino is a little sea-port next to the airport. We went to a fantastic restaurant by the sea called Bastianellialmolo and then wandered around until it was time to leave.

FABULOUS WEEK IN ROME

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a wonderful week in this lovely apartment in the historic centre of Rome. It was my third visit to the city and easily the best accommodation so far.
From the time of my initial enquiry to the owner, Isabella, about availability for our planned dates, she was prompt, helpful and friendly. She provided us with practical information about making the most of our stay, and arranged a car to pick us up at the airport. This cost no more than the three of us catching the train to Termini station and then a bus onwards. I assure you from experience a car is a much more pleasant and less exhausting option. We arranged for the same car company to return us to the airport at the end of the week. They were punctual and efficient.
The apartment is clearly a loved family home, and contained everything we needed for our stay. The kitchen is compact but has a huge fridge, a high spec cooker and oven, a microwave oven and a dishwasher. There were plenty of towels and bathrobes provided in the bathroom.
As we don't tend to eat out much on holiday, but prefer instead to wander around local food markets, returning to our accommodation laden with (too much!) fresh fruit, vegetables, cheese etc etc we couldn't have been in a better place as we had Campo de Fiori market as well as a very handy supermarket just steps from the front door. I splashed out on a couple of huge bunches of flowers to fill the apartment.
We loved sitting on the peaceful terrace for meals and late in the evening, watching flocks of swifts fly overhead while we recovered from our days of pavement pounding.
My daughter fell in love with the library. Such a collection of books and a couple of comfy sofas. There are some "secret" doors from the library into the bedroom.
Via del Pellegrino seemed almost magical: It never looked the same twice. Shops and restaurants just seemed to appear and disappear at different times of the day and night. It was a bit like Harry Potter's Diagon Alley!
My favourite building in Rome is the nearby Pantheon. It will take your breath away. Try sitting near the fountain opposite for a few minutes of an evening, just relaxing. It cannot be beaten. If you can spare a day, take the train from Piramides station to Ostia Antica. This is a huge abandoned ancient Roman town, now a massive archaeological site. You can download a free tourist guide to the site from the website.

We were so sad to leave, and will definitely return. Soon.
