Perfect location and the most gracious hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Franco and Carla are THE BEST. Seriously, you won't find a warmer, more generous, more helpful pair of hosts for your stay in Rome. The chalet is beautiful, just as it is pictured, and conveniently located just above Trastevere. I walked pretty much everywhere (all the big sites), and while it's a bit of a trek, in some cases, the walks are lovely and full of interesting sites along the way. Franco took extra care to meet me at the airport, arrange for pickup, and help me make reservations for the biggest attractions, including the Borghese. I can't recommend the chalet, the neighborhood, or this gem of a couple highly enough. Grazie mille, Franco e Carla!

Charming property and people!

  • 4 of 5

Generally v nice, and Carla and Franco are lovely and extremely helpful. Sweet little extras like homemade limoncello and marmalade make it very special.

The only little downside was that it was a little chilly (but it was November) - and I would suggest perhaps an extra heater in the room just in case?

I imagine it is a real delight in the warmer weather and I’m sure we’ll be back to try it!

Mille Grazi ragazzi!

Owner's Response: Dear Mark tanks for your kind comment. I'll put all my attention to your feedback about the inside temperature and I just set the heater few degrees wormer. In this way you can enjoy your stay also in winter time, but, of course, spring, summer and autumn weather is absolutelly yjr brst time to spend the holiday in our garden in the city. Hope to meet you again, with J. too and be sure you two will receive a special attention, just to fix the small problem occourred. Meantime think to us drinking Carla's Limoncello. We'll have it togheter when you'll be here again. Greetings. Ciao. Franco, Carla, India and Tosca

The Perfect Rome Neighborhood & Couple

  • 4 of 5

I spent 26 days in Italy. Carla (aka the boss) & Franco were very gracious and accommodating. Communication before and during my trip was exceptional. The small studio was very clean, secure, and convenient to bus transportation for this solo traveler.

Having the garden extends your living area. Having meals and reading outside was very relaxing.

India is the PERFECT "companion." She will not come inside even if you offer her favorite treats.

Traveler's Tip - Taking the #75 bus to Central Station was easier and less expensive than a taxi. When you get on the bus at the stop down the street from the grocery store [you can sit on benches while you wait] it is virtually empty.

Thank you Carla & Franco for everything.

Best host and hostess ever! We received the warmest of welcomes from Franco & Carla.

  • 4 of 5

Franco met us at the train station and provided us with transportation to our home away from home in Rome. We were given an overview of the area including places to eat, visit and must see sights. The cottage was quite cozy if not a bit on the small side but we were comfortable and it certainly met our needs. We experienced a problem with the washing machine and Carla graciously assisted us by finishing up our washing while we went out for a planned excursion. That was going above and beyond as a hostess! Overall this was a great location and a wonderful experience.

  • 5 of 5

Franco and Carla were amazing hosts for our stay in Rome. The location was perfect, just outside the major attractions so we could get away from the hustle and bustle of the city but close to Trastavere which I highly recommend visiting. Their hospitality was unparalleled and they went above and beyond to make sure we didn’t have to worry about a thing while on vacation. They picked us from the train station when we arrived in Rome, took us to our 7am Vatican tour and arranged our transportation to the airport when we were set to leave. The best part was little India their cute golden retriever! I can’t say enough positive things about our stay. Thank you again Franco, Carla and India. Ciao from Texas!

You are going to love this place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed one week & it was a great launch pad for all of the sights in beautiful Roma. We have been non stop for two weeks & this lovely setting provided us with the respite we needed from the hustle of the great cities of Europe. We are traveling for nearly one month & frankly we needed some peace & tranquility and we found it with the charming Franco e Carla and their two puppies India & Tosca. The chalet is nicely appointed in peaceful shades of lavender, the bed is comfy and the water is hot. We actually took a day to chill out in the garden, do some laundry, update our itinerary, take local walk and read - just what the doctor ordered. Highly recommend the hosts and the chalet & hop efully it is in the stars to stay here again
