About the property

Perfect Location - Renovated & Quiet apt – WiFi, AC, Sat TV - Customized welcome

If you are looking for an apartment that offers both central location and quiet surroundings, tourist sights and the real Roman lifestyle, this is the place! In one of the most beautiful areas of Rome, close to villa Borghese and at walking distance from the Spanish Steps, it’s a delightful and romantic penthouse with a unique terrace overlooking the neighbouring park.

This unit is ‘full optional’ (WiFi, satellite TV, air-conditioning, free calls to Europe, US, Canada, DVD, CD, washing-machine…) and the surroundings are plenty of resources (shops, supermarkets, restaurants, pizzerias, bars…) as well as very good bus connections, easy parking and beautiful parks.

The apartment ha been recently renovated and equipped with all the details that make it really nice and cosy, as we love our own home to be like, so to let you have a really comfortable and relaxing stay in Rome. It has a bright living room and a well-equipped compact kitchen, and upstairs a romantic bedroom (an authentic love nest!), with a double bed arranged with high-quality linens and the adjoining full bathroom with shower.

The private terrace is perfect for peaceful breakfasts and aperitifs surrounded by a splendid scenery. On the terrace you have at your disposal beach chairs and towels, to sunbathe far of prying eyes.

The apartment is located in the turret of an ancient villa, with a great view on the surroundings. The lift arrives at the third floor, then to reach the turret, one floor upper, there is a quite narrow and characteristic winding staircase.

On your arrival, we’ll welcome you with a customized information kit. During your stay you can rely on a friendly and prompt assistance as we live in the same villa and will do our best to help you to enjoy your stay in Rome and ‘do as Romans do’.

For details and information about payment and reservation options please email us. We’ll reply within 24 hours (usually much less).

A Home in Rome!

  • 5 of 5

I really don't know where to begin! Marco and Lidia were such fantastic hosts, and I say "host" on purpose - they treated us like guests in their home, had breakfast and homemade tiramisu in the fridge for us upon our arrival and gave us a parting gift of homemade limoncello. Marco and Lidia were both incredibly accommodating given our early arrival/departure - they allowed us to come to the apartment well-ahead of check-in time. Originally our train was to get in to Termini at 6:00, though we were delayed a bit and did not arrive until around 8:30. They allowed us to check-in early and then check-out the evening before since we were leaving at the crack of dawn.

The apartment itself it so charming and sweet. My mom and I planned this trip together and it was the perfect little space for the two of us. The photos represent everything quite faithfully, including the private deck, which was a wonderful way to cap the day - sipping wine and eating olives looking over a lively park as the sun set.

Location-wise, you're a bit outside the hustle and bustle of the heart of Rome, which we found to be a relaxing and welcome respite, but definitely plan your day accordingly. Marco and Lidia provided a ton of maps, local recommendations, and locations for markets, pharmacies, etc. Bust stops and metro weren't a far walk (if you ask me), but both my mom and I struggled a little bit with the heat.

To summarize: this is a beautiful, clean, comfortable apartment with a lot of really nice amenities (washing machine, private deck), with really wonderful, organized hosts who really helped us get the most out of our stay.

Fantastico!

  • 5 of 5

Marco and Lidia are truly the perfect hosts. The apartment is spotless and filled with everything you need for a comfortable and interesting stay in a big and intense city. We took many walks in their lovely, quiet neighborhood and with Marco's and Lidia's many suggestions we easily found our way around Rome. I highly recommend a stay at Home Away!

Perfect accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Marco & Lidia's apartment was really special, so well designed, it had all you need for a city break. We arrived to a friendly welcome where they informed us of how to get around the city and tips of how to do it.

The neighbourhood was charming & quiet, full of classical villas. The balcony was south facing, so when the sun came out, it was the perfect place.. being on the top floor, it overlooked the park, the roof tops & terraces of the other villa... a stunning view. We couldn't have wished to have stayed anywhere else.... it was perfect.

Thank you both for you having us stay at your beautiful apartment & your attention to detail.

Best stay in Rome

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic opportunity to experience the best of Rome from just outside its centre. Set in a quiet residential district Marco and Lidia's well provided apartment made the stay in Rome the highlight of this couples year.

The owners are attentive without being obstrusive and very thoughtful and kind. if you have any questions regarding your stay or the best way to get to somewhere - they do their utmost to provide the answers - usually via the apartment phone- which was available on a short dial system.

They gave us a splendid welcome and gave us exactly the right information regarding Rome that saved time during our stay. Maps to everywhere you would like to visit are provided with a key explaining the location of vital spots and good dialogue giving you the things to look for during your stay. The accommodation was just right with lots of thought given to the tourists needs - and the air conditioning was brilliant - such a relief to get back to after the heat of the day. We enjoyed the terrace overlooking the park and the views from it in the early morning and late evening .

Marco and Lidia were proud of their city and showed us the best it had to offer including a sightseeing evening and a trip to the ice cream parlour. Advice on the best places to eat was also provided which was faultless.

A more welcoming pair of owners you couldn't wish to meet.

Thank you both for your efforts.

Immaculate apartment, super location

  • 5 of 5

A great time enjoyed in this immaculate apartment, especially having breakfast on the patio. Also all the treats that were in the apartment especially Lidia's tiramisu. Nothing was overlooked. Very central spot. Would recommend this apartment to friends and family.

Charming loft with a wonderful terrace

  • 5 of 5

I agree with positive reviews below but may I add that the lovely south-facing terrace,giving on Villa Paganini park and the Apenines beyond, was a balm for this exhausted traveler.There was even a flock of pale green parrots that would circle by in the late afternoon. A delightful feature of what is a truly charming loft. It is clean, efficient and impeccably hosted by owners who are both generous of themselves and their time. Highly recommended

Most Roman people consider this area the place where they would like to live. The location, central and safe but not touristy, next to Villa Borghese and Via Veneto (known for Federico Fellini' s movie ‘La Dolce Vita'), is one of the best in Rome, a prestigious area of liberty villas and parks, at walking distance from historic center and very well connected to all the main sights. So, coming here, you have the chance to reach every interesting place of Rome in a short time, while enjoying a special place, apart from the mess of overcrowded areas.

Although Roma’ traffic is chaotic, it is a real hidden island of peace, the ideal place to welcome you after a day spent wandering around the city or in and out of the shops, just round the corner, everything you could possibly need is within walking distance: supermarkets, excellent restaurants and nice pizzerias, wine bars, markets and shopping centers, cafés, banks with ATM, pharmacies, kiosks, laundries, hospital, churches.

Termini railway station (terminal of trains and shuttles from Rome airports) and Tiburtina railway station are very close and well connected by bus/metro (just 10 min. by taxi).

Thanks to the position and the prestige of the area, most Embassies and Consulates are located in the neighbourhood.

CONNECTIONS:

Many bus lines stops are just round the corner, metro station (‘Policlinico’) is 15 min on foot.

Since there are so many sites to visit in Rome, it’s impossible to stay close to all of them. The key is in having good connections that allow you to reach every place seamless.

And from over here you find lines to reach the Pantheon and the Trevi fountain in 15 minutes, a little bit more for Coliseum or Vatican or Eataly or Trastevere, the Appian way by metro, the same for trains to Ostia antica, …

THE ATTRACTIONS IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD:

You find in the surroundings the parks that make Rome so enchanting as well as relevant historical and art sites:

VILLA BORGHESE, the most beautiful public park in Rome. It features a lake, temples, fountains, statues and several museums. The BORGHESE GALLERY, housed in the wonderful Villa Borghese, contains an unmissable collection of sculptures and pictures from masters like Bernini, Canova, Titian, Rubens, Raphael.

VILLA TORLONIA, the state residence of Mussolini since 1920s. The beautiful neoclassical villa is surrounded by the most renowned 'English landscape' garden in Italy.

The splendid COMPLEX of S. AGNES BASILICA and SANTA COSTANZA MAUSOLEUM, erected by the Emperor Constantine's daughter. It includes the CATACOMBS and is a unique example of early Christian complex of buildings.

The CATACOMB OF PRISCILLA, known as the 'Queen of the Catacombs' in antiquity on account of the fact that seven early popes and many martyrs were buried there.

The MACRO - Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome, located in a former factory, exhibits works of Italian artists from the 1960s to these days.

The extraordinary QUARTIERE COPPEDE', a rather unknown attraction of Rome, just a few steps away. It is a group of Art-Nouveau buildings renowned for their architecture featuring floral, mythological and medieval effects, a fanciful style mixing Liberty and Gothic characters so that the Coppedé quarter feels like a setting straight out of a fantasy world.

VILLA ADA, one of the Rome's largest public park, was the former residence and hunting reserve of the Italian royal family.
