About the property

Bedrooms 3, Bathrooms 3, Sleeps 6

Savour a Roman interlude in a seventeenth century Historical Palazzo originally built by an aristocratic and Papal family and now carefully restored to its Renaissance glory. It is in a perfect location at the Piazza del Orologio, on a quiet and chic street in the historic centre. It is a nearby stroll to both the Piazza Navonna and the wonderful Campo di Fiori, Rome's famed Fruit and Vegetable market in the day (and open-air cocktail party by night). You will also find it an easy walk to Castel St.Angelo and St. Peter's, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps, Trastevere, the Colosseum and more. There is also a famous Italian language school, La Scuola Leonardo di Vinci in the Piazza del Orologio - if you are ambitious and want to study Italian while here.

This charming 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom apartment, sleeps up to 6. It offers high ceilings, original terracotto floors, ample proportions, gracious spaces and elegant furnishings with art and antiques in the family for generations. Every corner evinces style and taste. One of its most impressive features are its ceilings, beautifully painted and carefully preserved evidence of the apartment's aristocratic past. Like the ceilings, the polished Terracotta floors are also original and again, evocative of the building's Renaissance heritage.

The Master bedroom offers a queen-sized bed, fine fabrics, luxury linens, and a full bathroom. The Second Bedroom has a queen-sized bed, and a large, independent bathroom. Both bedrooms are air-conditioned. The last bedroom is smaller, and can be arranged upon request as two twin beds, instead of one. It has a door to a balcony, and it also has it's own independent bathroom. The living room is double-sized with deep and comfy sofas, large screen TV, and of course wireless Internet everywhere. The kitchen is well equipped, if you like to cook. Or if you don't, we can book a cook for you to serve you in the dining room. That is if you can sacrifice strolling to one of the many wonderful Roman restaurants in the neighbourhood. We provide the list! There is a washing machine, and of course, wireless Internet!

This refined and sophisticated apartment makes a perfect furnished base for a Roman interlude and a cultural city break For added luxury, we can add daily or live-in help, to look after you, to shop, and even to cook.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a beautiful home. The frescoed ceilings in the living and dining room are exquisite. We highly recommend This property. There were 5 of us, including our 8 year old grandson and plenty of room. The location is perfect, kitchen up to date. Commendable Rentals, which we have used before, could not have been more accommodating and helpful, especially after my fall and breaking my nose while walking to the Vatican. Thank you Susan and Adriana.

Felt like Royalty

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay in the house. It was one of those houses were you really didn't want to leave. You felt like you were living in a museum surrounded by history. Large rooms comfortable beds very nice kitchen. Great location, a block from buses. End of September the buses really weren't that crowded. The pedestrian area is right around the corner. You can find great places to eat to the cobblestone alley ways. The Host was very communicative before and during our stay. 5 minute walk to Piazza Novona, 10 minute walk to St Peters, 20 minute walk to the Vatican museums. The house is in a really great location. It was everything we were hoping for. Stayed 5 nights and that isn't enough time to see Rome. Our group was six older adults. Elevator came in so handy. The Host has access to rooms inside the apartment entry way. Don't do what I did and mistakenly locked them out.

All six of us dearly loved the apartment. I would definitely recommend it if you want to feel like you're living in history.

Stylish "Old-world" Flat in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We loved EVERYTHING about your place…The living room was so spacious and welcoming. The coffee table alone has been the biggest I’ve ever seen at a home amongst my friends. We had a 4yo girl who enjoyed everything in the place including the little elevator and fish pond on the ground floor. Your recommendation of Osteria del Pegno was a favorite of our group. Thanks for being a part of a very memorable trip.

A great place to stay in Piazza Navona area

  • 4 of 5

The location of the property was excellent and the property itself was beautiful! A genuine palazzo in a quiet little street close to the piazza Navona. Very little traffic. The area felt very safe and we were close to a wide range of good quality local amenities. There was a wonderful range of shops, bars, cafés and restaurants to choose from. The owner provided information and recommendations for local restaurants and this was very helpful. We enjoyed trying different places each night! The sitting room and dining room/library were particularly beautiful and it was a pleasure to have the use of them during our busy week in Rome. The bedrooms were more basic, and the 3rd bedroom was more suited to a child than an adult. The property was generally well maintained and fairly clean.The property manager provided excellent service and was readily available to help with any issues, eg arranging transfers to/from airport, which were excellent and good value. I would recommend the property to anyone who is looking to have an authentic experience of living in a genuine historic Roman property in a beautiful old building. We found it to be a splendid experience who have us great pleasure. It's central location also meant that many of the best sights and places of interest were easily accessible on foot. A great place to come back to at the end of a busy, exciting day.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very nice review. We are glad that you , like us appreciated this very special place. We do normally reserve the third bedroom just for children, as the room is small, though the bed is not; its120 cm ( between a single and a double). I am not sure that we knew that your son was an adult ! However, we have had single adults who were comfortable there. Again, thank you for staying with us , and for being such a nice guest,

In addition to being in the heart of Rome, this apartment is on the edge of the Piazza del Orologio where you will find the Leonardo di Vinci Language School, one of the best Italian language schools in Rome. Stay a month and speak Italian like a native!
