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!

Fantastic hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic experience at Franco and Carla,s cottage. The cottage was very comfortable and there was always a cool spot in the beautiful garden. Carla and Franco are amazing host. Carla drove us to the Vatican at 7 a.m. And Franco drove us to the airport when the train was on strique.They are the most interesting and kind people you could ever meet.

Quiet hideaway above Trastevere

  • 4 of 5

Franco and Carla are gracious and generous hosts who are only too happy to help with info on transport, places to visit etc. Very hot when we were there, air con. struggled. Carla makes lovely limocello and marmalade. India, the labrador, visited and the garden is lovely to sit in and relax. If you are happy to walk it is close to most places of interest. Worth checking out.

Delightful people made our stay so special

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Franco and Carla's lovely little garden chalet for five nights. It is well located on a hill above Trastavere, and from which we were easily able to access a variety of restaurants, and the tram service into Piazza Venetia, an easy walk to the Trevi Fountain. It was a good twenty minute downhill walk to the Vatican too.

We made the trip to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary and Franco and Carla went out of their way to make this so special for us - met us at the airport as my husband, unfortunately, had a broken shoulder; had a specially labelled bottle of wine waiting for us and a wide variety of local nibbles, fruit and milk for our tea and coffee.

The apartment is small, but well met our needs and opens out to a delightful tranquil garden, complete with Buddha statues and lovely planting. There are wild parakeets in the nearby trees and the two resident golden labradors (you could shut the garden gate to keep them out if you're not a doggy person) spotted our curtains opening in the morning and came to call.

The bed was very comfortable and warm, and we found the hot water supply to the large shower excellent.

To us, part of the charm of visiting a country is getting to know some of the locals. We could not speak highly enough of Franco and Carla and their efforts to make sure that our Roman holiday not only met our expectations, but indeed exceeded them. We would warmly recommend this property to people valuing peace and quiet, brilliant hosts and a relaxing holiday.

Quiet, private, comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Carla and Franco have done everything you could think of and more to make this a great little place to stay. So kind and helpful. We were sorry to leave, and if we come back to Rome it will be to here. The garden is lovely, and the general area very nice and quiet, (with Trastevere jumping just half a mile down the road.) We would recommend it without hesitation.

"Home Away from Home" is a hidden gem in the heart of Rome

  • 5 of 5

Our 5 days in magnificent Rome was made extra special by the kindness and hospitality of our hosts, Franco and Carla. The chalet was perfectly located within easy walking distances to the market at Campo de' Fiori, the Forum, the Colosseum, Pantheon and the Vatican and contained everything we needed for a cozy, comfortable stay, surrounded by beautiful gardens and quiet patio. It was a welcome retreat after a long day of exploring and immediately felt like home to us, especially being welcomed back with the wagging tails of well behaved Tosca and India. The extra amenities provided by Franco and Carla, such as provisions in the fridge and homemade treats were greatly appreciated. They took the time to welcome us, provide detailed information on where we were, the best ways to get to places, recommended grocers, shops, restaurants, etc. They also cheerfully arranged an airport transfer for us at the end of our stay. Thank you, Alessio. We loved our time in Rome and would highly recommend the chalet to anyone looking for a warm and friendly place to stay. Definitely a 5+ star experience!
