Why Giovanni Ceccarelli chose Arvalia Portuense

The house is part of a property that my family bought about ninety years ago. Nearby is the house they spent their lives my grandparents, my parents and now it's me, my wife and my two children. The house we rent has been restored a few years ago in accordance with the traditional features.

Thanksgiving Vacation in Rome

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect for our large family. Giovanni met us as soon as we got to the property, gave us a tour of the house and explained how everything worked. He was wonderful when we had a small problem and helped us solve everything accordingly. The house is about an hour away from city center, but we were given explicit instruction on buses and trains on how to get to the main piazzas. We were also given a map of the neighborhood with several restaurants and cafes within walking distance. Giovanni also gave us a phone in case there were any problems and we needed to get in touch with him. The beds were comfortable and the house itself was very spacious. The only downside of our visit was that internet was a little hinky and worked sporadically. But, this was not enough to mar our visit, as internet is sketchy all over the city. Giovanni was a wonderful host and we will definitely be staying here again on our next visit to Rome!

Owner's Response: Hi, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in Rome and in my house. I'm sorry about the problem with the internet connection, but it was caused by a malfunction of the telephone company that took several weeks to resolve. Now finally the fault has been repaired and now works regularly.

Very spacious and clean - a quiet place in Rome

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived mr. Cecharelli welcomed us into the huge house. We were with the four of us so we had a lot of space to ourselves! The house is clean and well-kept and the walls are very thick so it is very quiet even though Via Portuense is a busy street. We had warm weather but the house was so cool we didn't need the airconditioning.
Mr. Cecharellli had prepared a lot of papers explaining the Public Transport in Rome, so we could get by the bus, tram and metro fairly easily.

A lot of people prefer to book rooms in the centre of Rome but the fact that this house is in the suburbs meant that we were able to take in the atmosphere of Rome and the Romans without a lot of tourists, which was very nice.

Getting to the centre takes 30 minutes to 45 minutes with Public Transport which is not expensive at all.

Supermarkets, restaurants and various shops are nearby. Beds were good, bathrooms clean, towels included.

We could have done with some more glassware indeed and the internet connection was not what we're used to at home. Upgrading the Wifi would be a major improvement!

We would definitely recommend Portuense House to everyone who wants a nice, quiet and spacious place away from the busy centre of Rome. For the price it's a steal.

Great vacation home with lots of space!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this vacation home for a week and loved it! The house is very spacious, comfortable, and extremely clean. Giovanni is super helpful with printed out maps of the transit system to get to most of the major sites in Rome. The house is close to several markets, a pizza/kebab place, and a nice restaurant. The only problem we encountered was the poor internet connectivity. We could really only get signal in 1 room in the house, and even then, it was really only good enough to check email. But, it was also nice to disconnect for a week. Overall, I would absolutely recommend this home to friends & would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Fantastic apartment and a lovely host.

  • 4 of 5
On the plusside:
A wonderful stay. Close to a nice restaurant, a pizza/pub and a convenient store.
Three toilets and two showers - very nice for 8 people in the mornings. ;)
Nice with a big kitchen/dining area.

On the downside:
No washing maschine, as described in the text. And we couldn´t find the laundrymat that was supposed to be in the neighbourhood.

The wifi was a bit low on juice and not available in the entire flat, but fully functional.

Wished we could have stayed here longer!
