Luxury penthouse with an expansive terrace from which to enjoy Roman life 'al fresco'.

Location

Located in the upscale Prati neighborhood, an area along the western side of the Tiber River, with graceful buildings it is much coveted by Romans as one of the most livable historic center locations. It is convenient to the major sites, walkable to shops, cafes, restaurants and public transportation.

Prati has much appeal with some of the best shopping in Rome. The neighborhood was developed in the late 1800s and early 1900s with wide, tree-lined streets reminiscent of the boulevards of Paris. Romans and visitors appreciate the proximity to the popular historical center while being able to escape the crowds in the narrow streets.

Exterior

The apartment is at the top is a well maintained seven-story building from the 1800`s. Enter the lobby and there is a very small elevator up a few steps.

Interior

A small foyer opens to a long attractive hallway with a trio of windows dressed in elegant silk drapes. Because the apartment is top floor with windows on both sides it is bright and pleasant year round.

At the end of the hall is the living room with vaulted ceilings, a fireplace [non-working], two sofas, dining table and chairs and and glass doors that open to the terrace. One of the sofas converts to a queen size sofa bed, the other into a single sofa bed. The apartment is decorated with taste and style, with a successful blend of family heirloom antiques with modern pieces such as the glass dining table. Handsome wall sconces, interesting decorative curios from the owner`s global travels and tasteful artwork are the icing on the cake...and we haven`t even started to talk about the terrace.

Up two steps to the terrace where you can enjoy the best of Rome from this outdoor retreat. A view of the terrace is enjoyed from the living room, the kitchen and the bedroom. Life under the Roman skies will be yours, whether it`s enjoy meals outdoors at the patio table or lounging on the recliners while you read your book or nap. What better way to enjoy 'La Dolce Vita'.

The kitchen is modern and fun with a jolt of vivid red and with doors to terrace. Cabinets and appliances line one wall with refrigerator, dishwasher, sink, stove, oven, microwave. It is fully furnished with pots, pans, dishes.

The living room and kitchen both have doors so the living room can be closed off for privacy.

Off the hallway is a half-bath with toilet and sink.

The bedroom has a queen size bed, antique bureau, night tables with lamps, a wall of closets and a pleasant large window to the terrace. The master bathroom is en suite with marble finishes, sink with good counter top space, toilet, bidet and bathtub with shower over.

Guestbook comments from the owner
This property was even nicer than the photos. We had an odd request for an electric tea kettle and were pleasantly surprised that it was there when we checked-in. Rene, our greeter, was waiting for us when we arrived. He was available at any time for any question we had on the apartment. He also turned out to be the best person for helping us find hidden gems in the city to visit as well as restaurant recommendations.

This was our first time getting a vacation rental apartment in Europe and we truly believe that Italy Perfect was the reason for our wonderful experience. The information packets that Pat and Lisa provided were very detailed and spot on. I doubt that other agents provide this kind of stellar service

IT WAS A ROMANTIC, COMFORTABLE SANCTUARY WHEN WE RETURNED FROM THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE OF THE CITY.

  • 5 of 5
We loved the Fresco Apartment. It made our visit to Rome. It was a romantic, comfortable sanctuary when we returned from the hustle and bustle of the city. Siviglia was fantastic, giving us a thorough introduction to the apartment and the neighborhood. We would stay again without hesitation. As to what might improve the apartment…additional cleaning cloths for the kitchen. It is very hard to clean up spills, etc with what is provided. Also, glass cleaner and paper towels would be great for cleaning off the dining table (glass topped).

Also, we were very happy we reserved shuttle service to the airport with Stefano. He was punctual, polite and professional. This was after we encountered a strike on the Metro the day before, so we were very relieved to have made these arrangements. Finally, if you have the time and inclination, adding to the sections of your website that give your personal input regarding the neighborhood, tourist attractions, etc. I spent many, many hours on the internet and was most grateful for the personal blogs that gave real opinions and not just tour guide information. It probably seems like “old hat” to you, but for visitors trying to maximize their vacation dollars, it is a great help. It is what lead me to your website initially.

Thanks again for a wonderful visit while in Rome.

FRESCO WAS WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Fresco apartment during a recent two-week trip to Rome, and were very happy with both the accommodation and the location. The greeter was extremely helpful, showing us how to use everything from the elevator to the dishwasher, and following up to make sure that everything was OK. She also provided contact information. While we didn't need to use it during our stay, it was nice to know that there was someone we could call in case we had any problems. The apartment itself is roomy, comfortable and attractive, and the terrace is wonderful - like having your own small garden above the streets of Rome. There is even a partial view of the dome of Saint Peter's. Amenities such as grocery stores, restaurants and shops are nearby, as is a stop for the number 40 bus. We found this to be a very useful route, with stops close to many of Rome's most popular sights. We would definitely stay at Fresco apartment again if we returned to Rome.

PERFECT FOR A TRIP TO ROME

  • 5 of 5
This apartment perfect for a trip to Rome. My sister and I stayed there and we walked everywhere from it. It was a safe neighbourhood and close walking distance to many attractions. The greeter was very informative upon our arrival. There was food in the place once we arrived. It's a reliable place! Highly recommend.

The staff even went out of their way to send me a wallet I forgot in the apartment. They took it very seriously and provided great service once I told them it was missing.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
OK, I really don't want anyone else to find this gem so my husband and I can have it all to ourselves again, but that would just be wrong, so I must say this is the most amazing place I have ever stayed. The accomodations were perfect for the two of us, with plenty of room to relax, cook some meals, prepare coffee each morning and refresh with Prosecco each evening. Also, the neighborhood is lively yet quiet and the location was perfect for us too. We walked almost all the time, only taking a taxi for some longer distances then we walked back with no problems. Our greeter, Siviglia, was also amazing as were Pat and Lisa. Since my husband and I cannot live there all the time, then, I must share this precious retreat with the rest of you. We will definitely be back!
Grazie, grazie ItalyPerfect and Buena sera.

ROME SWEET HOME

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is very comfortable with nice furnishings and decorative details We had wonderful weather and were able to utilize the spacious deck for 1) drying clothes and 2) enjoying a glass of wine in the evenings. The bed is very comfortable. The bathroom is large and well equipped with quality linens. The second bathroom is a very nice touch. The closet in the bedroom is huge and provided more storage room than we needed. The location was wonderful…there is a grocery store a couple of blocks away and many wonderful shops, including a deli that had fantastic “take away” items for meals in the apartment. We enjoyed several lunches at the little restaurant nearby, Ristorante Pizzeria La Locanda,. They have the best pizza crust, pastas, and meat dishes with friendly and attentive service! We were about a thousand feet from the Vatican and walking almost everywhere was no problem. Tips The washer was small but worked well. We recommend that visitors to this apartment bring a travel clothesline or two as we did to string on the deck to dry clothes. Yes, we would definitely recommend Italy Perfect to friends and have already done so. The driver recommended by Italy Perfect, Rocco, was great. He picked us up on time at the airport and drove us to our accommodations and then to the train station when we were going to Florence.

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at the Fresco apartment for five days. What a beautiful apartment! On the top floor of the building, we found it to be quiet, comfortable, spacious and very clean.

We enjoyed the Prati neighborhood very much, but it may not be for everyone. Our walk to the Vatican was very easy, but to get to other sites was a longer walk. We knew this going in and it didn't bother us at all. Some may prefer to be closer to the major attractions. However, if you enjoy living like a local and being away from many of the tourists, this would be an excellent place to consider. This, in addition to the apartment itself, was one of Fresca's main benefits in our opinion.

We found everything we needed nearby: grocery, pharmacies, shops, restaurants, etc. It really is a lovely neighborhood.

Our favorite part of Fresco was the terrace. Surrounded by flowers, plants and trees, it was a true oasis for us. We enjoyed breakfast outside every morning and had cocktails there each evening. We were surprised and delighted to be able to see the dome of St. Peter's from the terrace.

We found the linens provided to be a pleasant surprise -- plenty of thick, white towels. There were some supplies in the kitchen to get us started, but no paper products (napkins, paper towels) or garbage bags and only one dish towel. Future guests may wish to know this.

Our arrival at our apartment was delayed due to a baggage handlers' strike at the airport, and we were met by someone other than our scheduled greeter. He was kind and even gave us a nice bottle of sparkling wine...but his English was very limited and we weren't shown how to use some of the things in our apartment (dishwasher, tv, etc.). He didn't know where the washing machine was (we did eventually find it under the sink in the bathroom). We figured these things out ourselves, but would have been more comfortable with a more thorough orientation.

Overall, this was a terrific place for my husband, our son and me to spend our time in Rome. We would definitely want to stay there again and I would recommend it highly to anyone going to Rome.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much. We are delighted you so enjoyed your stay. We apologize that, due to the delay, the substitute greeter wasn't particularly helpful. Fortunately we were able to organize him in any case. - Italy Perfect.
