About Isabella S. Castriota
I am a writer - producer
Isabella S. Castriota purchased this apartment in 1987
Why Isabella S. Castriota chose Centro Storico (Old Rome)
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.
What makes this apartment unique
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.
