Great property and hosts

  • 5 of 5

Carla and Claudio were very welcoming hosts who did everything to make our stay comfortable. The apartment was well appointed and nicely situated: only about 35 minutes from Fiumicino airport and convenient to sights such as Frascati, the other towns of the Castelli Romani, and Tivoli. Carla had many helpful suggestions for our excursions. Parking is not on their property but on the street outside, which is quiet and safe. There is a supermarket conveniently located on this street just before their property. Carla provided very detailed instructions for reaching the property, but it is a little tricky since their street off Via Tuscolana is very small and narrow, so easy to miss. The only negative point was the wifi--only one of our 4 devices could connect, and then not consistently. But this was a minor point compared to Carla's great hospitality and kindnesses. Her communication was excellent and greatly aided by using WhatsApp.

quiet and comfortable appartment

  • 3 of 5

This appartment is less than 30 minutes from the city center. It has a large terrace and a splendid view on Rome. The garden invites you to relax.

Carla and Claudio were very hospitable and helpful. Daily and at the time we prefered they brought us to and from the metrostation Anagnino where metroline A brings you directly to the heart of Rome. Their service was welcome as otherwise it could be a bit complex to get to the metro easily.

There are three restaurants nearby but one was not open during the week.

Convenient location and nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

I needed an economical place to stay close to Frascati and to Rome and this place was just right. The apartment corresponds to its description and the owner was very forthcoming and helpful. While it is close to a busy highway (Tuscolana), it is on a side street, is quiet and felt relatively rural, with birds singing and with nice views of Rome from the terrace. It is also close to a small shopping center, which includes a supermarket, dry-cleaning shop, a hairdressing salon and a pizzeria. Parking is on the street, but it appears to be relatively safe. I would recommend this apartment as an economical rental at a convenient location.

A place you want to return

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 5 day stay in this lovely romantic appartment located on the first floor. Everything is as beautiful as on the photos.

The view is fantastic, the terrace is huge, the appartment is large and decorated with care and good taste.We admired the garden a lot, especially the lemon trees.

It is perfect place for relaxing, easy to reach the city center via bus/metro or car, do some hiking in Castelli Romani, drink nice wine in Frascati. A supermarket is very near.

Carla and Claudio are wonderful hosts, did everything to make our stay enjoyable.

We will definitely return.

Appartement agréable et bien tenu

  • 5 of 5

Parfait pour un séjour près de Rome. Métro à 5 min. en voiture pour rejoindre le centre de Rome. Beaux villages et sites exceptionnels dans les alentours. Appartement agréable, rien ne manque. Très belle terrasse avec vue sur Rome. Et des hôtes charmants. A recommander.
