Feel at home in Rome
La Bella Vita is a bright, spacious, elegant apartment in the heart of Rome. The lovely owners greeted us on our arrival and answered all our questions. Even showed us how to make fresh-brewed Italian coffee. They are filmmakers which is reflected in the way they decorated this amazing, unique two-bedroom, two-bath apartment, furnished with mix of classic and contemporary art. The bedrooms are huge. The kitchen has everything we needed. The best view is from the kitchen which overlooks a private park and over to the Victor Emanuele monument. Views of August sunsets were spectacular.
From the apartment it's easy access to neighborhoods, restaurants, and shops. It's a short walk to Carrefour Express, a 24-hour, well-stock supermarket. Checkout Colle Oppio Park, a quiet space next to the building. Around the corner is San Pietro in Vincoli Church featuring Michelangelo’s Moses. There’s a subway nearby, but we walked or rode bikes everywhere. Bike rentals are available at the building’s entrance.
We stayed 8 days and it felt like we were at home in Rome. Very happy with our choice!
The perfect Roman Holiday!
Both modern and historic- this was the perfect home base from which to explore Rome. Though just a short block from the Coliseum, this tucked away neighborhood, on the edge of a park, is a tranquil break from the crowds and bustle of Rome. The apartment is roomy and comfortable. Looking out over a large garden next door- with distant views to many landmarks including the Vatican- large windows give the space wonderful light and wonderful breezes. The homeowners are lovely and welcoming- full of tips and suggestions about the neighborhood and the city. Their favorite local restaurant became ours- where we enjoyed dinner almost every night. More than just a place to sleep- this stylish home is a place that you will enjoy for it's own charms- a comfortable living room filled with incredible art, a huge kitchen to hang out and cook in, comfortable bedrooms and spacious bathrooms. Rome is wonderful, but this apartment made our trip truly magical.
Wonderful, bright and full of love
We could not have found a more gracious, comfortable, and well-located apartment for our stay in the Eternal City. Furnished with a mix of lovely antiques and modern pieces and home to a superb and eclectic collection of art, the apartment was more than we had hoped for.
We entered the apartment and were immediately struck by the elegance of the space and wholly delighted by the vaulted frescoed ceilings. The apartment is flooded with light throughout the day. The windows look out on both peaceful gardens and the monuments of the city. But despite the grandeur of the apartment, it is has a welcoming and intimate vibe and we really felt at home there.
There is an enormous eat-in kitchen with a magnificent view of the Roman sunset, a lovely place to gather for an evening meal or to enjoy an aperitivo before a night out.
The kitchen has all the tools and ample space for cooking in and a full-sized refrigerator for stocking up.
There is also a separate more formal dining area (with a table that is just a work of art!).
The bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds and lovely accent furniture; two bathrooms were key to a comfortable stay.
While the elevator building is on a street that overlooks the Colosseum and is near the metro and buses, it is quite peaceful and quiet. There are bars and restaurants within steps of the apartment and just around the corner is the church of San Pietro in Vincoli, which contains Michelangelo's Moses. All of the sites of ancient Rome can be reached by foot in just a few minutes.
We could easily walk to most neighborhoods in the center but public transportation near the apartment was excellent.
We had a wonderful experience in an exceptional apartment. The level of comfort and beauty in this living space is not overstated.
We are so happy that you appreciated the beauty and the exceptional qualities of this beautiful apartment, and its lovely Roman neighborhood. Thank you so very much for taking the time to write so eloquently.
The Commendable Rental Team
The highlight of our stay was without doubt the professionalism, dedication and enthusiasm of Stefania. We felt in good hands. We recommend the apartment without hesitation. Well-equipped, clean and with easy access to Termini and by public transportation to all of the things in Rome you don't want to miss. The terrace was a plus and the perfect place for a late dinner by candlelight.
Gracious Roman home with views
The apartment made our time in Rome very special. Not only is it a beautiful home, but also the high standard of comfort is unusual. The mod-cons are well maintained. The kitchen had all you need, no running to the grocery store for the basic items. We have stayed in many vacation rentals and this was one of the best. We hope to come back.
We are so glad to read that you would like to return to this special place and that it suited you so well. It is indeed a privilege to live with the art and history of this very Roman, but well modernized apartment , so well suited for today. Living next to the Roman Forum and in lively Monti area is nice, too. We look forward to your return to Rome.

Exceeded all expectations
Review of Rome apartment
The apartment exceeded all expectations. It was full of light, lovely antiques, art – both antique and modern – and personal details that made us feel as if we were in the home of old friends. The apartment was full of books and art work that had been dedicated to the owners, giving it a very special personal feel. The location is superb: right up the hill from the Coliseum and around the corner from San Pietro In Vicolo, the site of Michelangelo’s Moses. A five-minute walk offers gourmet food shopping and the Monti neighborhood of local shops and restaurants. There was a lively, academic atmosphere on our street because the engineering university is a block away, along with two nice bistros on the corner and a good neighborhood restaurant down the block.
Our hosts greeted us on arrival and offered very helpful assistance on the kitchen, internet –which worked very well, telephones, taxis, restaurants, and concerts. They had stocked the refrigerator with clementines for Christmas, as well as milk, coffee, a bottle of wine, and other essentials.
We were there with an adult son. There was a spacious, lovely, antique filled living room/dining room, similarly a sitting room/bedroom, and another large bedroom, in addition to a large kitchen/breakfast room, and gracious entry hall. Two full baths made it very convenient for a two generation family. A self service entrance made the fourth floor location easy. And the views in all directions were very special, including vistas across Rome at sunset and a special private garden next door.
We are delighted to hear that we surpassed your expectations. This apartment is , indeed, a rare gem, and those who select it for their stay to Rome, as you did, are in for a privileged experience indeed. It was a great pleasure to help you with your stay in Rome, and we hope that you will have the opportunity to return again.
