About Elisabetta

I'm a lady of a certain age, but I still keep all the peculiar traits of my generation: curiosity, creative energy, intolerance of rules and conventions, and a touch of old sound recklessness. They used to call us the babyboomers and we invented new ways to live our teenage years, our adulthood, parenthood, womenhood, manhood and whateverelsehood...All we can do now is to find an alternative and exciting way to get old . I was a medicine student for a long while, but I couldn't afford to graduate. I worked in many different fields with some success. Catering, design and graphic design were my favorites. Now I'm into organic farming. I live most of the time in a little farm near the sea, south of Rome, experimenting my way with permaculture. In the winter time, when the farm goes to sleep and the birds fly southward, I go north to stay with my daughter in London.

Elisabetta purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Elisabetta chose Rione XV Esquilino

When I choose to moove in this area I choose at the same time to go back in a place full of memories. But I was more attracted by the big changes happened in this area since I was young. Until short time ago a multiethnic neighbourhood in Rome was utterly unthinkable: we didn't have enough strangers. Nothing to melting down in ol' Rome pot since ages. Now our area may even be described as a sort of Chinatown.I thought it was funny, after all my traveling and living away, going back home at last and find myself in a chineese district. I'm still surprised when a young east asian fellow citizen cheers the local football team and swears in perfect roman dialect. I didn't think it was possible here

What makes this apartment unique

The reason why I fell in love with this flat at first sight was the feeling to be so surprisingly close to the nature here, and at the same time to be able to enjoy all the benefits of urban life.

Sunshine, moonligth, stars, blue birds, storms.... Downstairs you might even forget the sky, and this sounds really awful to me

Fantastic place to relax after a busy day.

  • 5 of 5

Great location so it was very easy to come back for dinner and then head out for the evening. Breakfast on patio was a perfect way to start the day. Grocery store just down the street. The walk from central train terminal was a bit rough with luggage, much easier to take Subway . Hosts were very good at communication and would definitely stay here again.

Incredible Apartment and Balcony

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay at Elisabetta's penthouse. The apartment is so spacious and beautiful and the balcony goes on forever. She had it equipped with many amenities and was so helpful with recommendations and in many ways.

The bed is extremely comfortable and the towels luxurious. And it is very quite. We loved it so much we are coming back in October for another stay.

Practical for a family of 5

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very comfortable with everything you need to sleep well, prepare a nice breakfast, etc. It has a small but practical washing machine for the laundry. It is very spacious. Has a terrace, and A great gelatería in front of the building. The contras I would say it is not very near the center of Rome, the building looks like it needs a good painting at least, and the terrace could be neater. However, we had a great time, and Roberta was always there if we had any doubts or needed help with something.

Love this apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Although a little off the beat and path, this spacious and lovely apartment was full of character and super comfortable. The terrace and light were an added bonus. Elisabetta and her daughter were lovely and accommodating. I would highly recommend this apartment!

Nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

Met Roberto who was very nice and right on time. All communication with everyone was prompt. The apartment is exactly as described and depicted. The only problem encountered during the entire stay was the lack of air conditioning. I communicated with the owner who stated that it needed to be inspected before the hot season arrived. In May on the top floor the 2 85+ degree days we encountered made Air conditioners necessary. The lack of A/C required the couple in the 2nd bedroom without air flow to sleep on the couches for two nights. My only suggestion and the only reason it is not rated 5 stars is when communicating in a questionable time period explain that the A/C may not be available. In May it is certainly possible that hot days will occur since the apartment advertised A/C I did not question its availability, future renters may want to ask prior to booking.

Wundervolle Wohnung zur Entdeckung Roms

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten 8 Tage in dieser wundervollen Wohnung, genossen Sonnenaufgang- und untergang auf der riesigen Terrasse bei Frühstück oder Wein. Von hier aus lassen sich, wenn man gut zu Fuss ist, die zentral gelegenen Sehenswürdigkeiten direkt anlaufen, aber auch die Anbindung mit Metro, Tram und Bus ist super. Kontakt zum Vermieter ist sehr freundlich und als Extra gibt es einen sehr urigen Fahrstuhl...

The Esquilino is located upon the higher and wider of the celebrated Seven Hills of Rome and is right there since the VIth cent b.C. The area is near the Domus Aurea (Nero's Imperial Villa) and the Colosseum, here Mecenate built his famous villa and gardens. In Piazza Vittorio, hearth of the neighborhood, there are remains of two roman aqueducts meant to bring water to the imperial villas, gardens and public thermal baths. At the end of the XIX century the area was rebuilt as you can see it today, and in the last 20 years it became the main multiethnic neighbourhood in Rome. Close to Termini Railroad Station you can find a lot of touristic services, hotels and restaurants with international food.

The Esquilino market hall is a huge, popular, rich market stuffed with fresh vegetables, fruit, seafood, italian specialties, fresh meat, exotic items and people. It's right around the corner and it's worth a visit particularly if you are planning a homemade dinner

The Termini Railroad Station is very close. All the trains and bus to the airports leave frome here.

From Termini in a few minutes on foot you can reach three of the most interesting ancient churches in Rome (S. Giovanni, S. Maria Maggiore and Santa Croce in Gerusalemme).

200 yds away from the flat there is a Metro A subway station, (to Pzza di Spagna, Fontana di Trevi, Vatican Museum). The number 70 bus stops in via giolitti only 200 yds away. It goes to Piazza Argentina (a few hundred yards from Trastevere), Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Navona.

S.Lorenzo is in a few minute walking range: it's a nice student neighbourhood with good restaurants and vibrant nightlife. A little further (but the tram n5 stops down the street and gets you there very quickly) the Pigneto is the new up and coming area where smart young roman people go to have a drink and listen to the latest music.Young artists' hangout, lively and sleepless

By public transport you can easily reach two of the foremost archeological sites near Rome: OSTIA ANTICA (20' by train) and VILLA ADRIANA (30' by bus).
