Our stay at Campo de Fiori was perfect. My husband, young daughter, and I stayed here in mid- January 2012. The owner was extremely helpful in setting up our reservation and answering all of my questions before hand. We took her up on the offer to arrange for airport transportation and the private chef, both of which I recommend. The driver took us right to the front door where the owner met us and showed us around the apartment and ensured we were well situated. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and he gave us a map and showed us where we could walk to find a open supermarket for some essentials. The apartment is lovely...it is fully modern and recently renovated, and is both elegant and comfortable at the same time-- the pictures do not do it justice. The kitchen is small, but well stocked with everything you would need to prepare a wonderful breakfast (as we did every morning) or delicious dinner (as we did as well). As we love food and love to cook (and were travelling with our 2.5 year old), finding an apartment with a kitchen above the Campo di Fiori market was my goal. The market is open daily and is full of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as some pasta, olive oil, and spice vendors. From the terrace you get a lovely view of the market and of the surrounding areas. It is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine and some local delicacies. The double bed in the bedroom was new and extremely comfortable. The sofa in the living room converts into a bed--our daughter slept out there--and it was comfortable as well. Some sofa beds are dreadful. The hot water did not work the greatest, but considering the building was built in the 16th century, it didn’t seem worth holding it against the apartment. The location is perfect. You can walk to just about anywhere in 30 minutes to include the Vatican and the Coliseum (each on opposite sides of Rome). The best part of Rome is just wandering the streets and stumbling upon things. On our last night we had the private chef come and cook dinner for us. Going out to a gourmet dinner is hard with a toddler, so we gave it a try. It was AMAZING. Really. If you are considering it at all and the option is still available- go for it, you will not be disappointed.
We truly, truly enjoyed our time, and hope that someday we get a chance to come back. Thank you both, you really enhanced the visit with all of your assistance. We were lucky to find your apartment, and hope to be back soon!
Owner's Response: Thanks Kim for your kind words. We really enjoyed hosting you, Hugh and Maddie, and, above all, we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment. We really hope we'll be able to host you again!
Nathalie, Enrique and little Diego
