Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Rome in January and stayed in this charming flat. Everything was as pictured and very clean. We arranged to be picked up at the airport through Michela and our driver was there waiting for us. When we arrived at the apartment Michela was there and greeted us and walked us through everything that we needed to know about how things worked, from the washer, key and locks, coffee maker and TV with satellite. The location could not have been better. We had downloaded Rick Steve's audio tour for the "Heart of Rome" and it started at the end of our street in the Palazzo Farnese! ( The apartment itself is on Via de Farnese, which is a quiet street) There were shops and restaurants nearby as well as the large market in the Campo de Fiori. We were within walking distance to the Vatican as well as the Pantheon and Spanish Steps. The apartment itself was cozy and the bed was round and king size which is most unusual for Europe! Michela was absolutely lovely and we would definately stay here again.

Lovely, pleasant facility in a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

Michela's apartment worked out beautifully for us in Rome! Though the kitchen and bath were tiny, Michela's attention to detail and concern for her guests made them workable. (Note: She requests no frying or sautéing in the kitchen, due to the persistence of their odors. We made do with pasta, salads, and other easy-to-prepare dishes.) The apartment is full of lovely, personal touches, including a memory book from her previous guests and family albums. Many of the decorative items are antique and authentic Roman.

The location is the real spectacle: A few feet from Palazzo Farnese, a few steps from the Campo d'Fiori, and just a short walk from many spectacular sites from Ancient Rome -- the very secure, easy-access apartment worked beautifully as a home away from home for us during our week's visit. The Tevere and the winding walk along its banks, connected by many bridges to the Trastevere area -- one of our favorites! -- were just steps from our front door. Michela was completely at our disposal -- responding immediately to any texts; arranging car transport and other affairs for us; spending several hours introducing us to the apartment and the neighborhood; and behaving like a perfect hostess for our visit. (We have visited Rome a number of times and this was by far the most satisfying and pleasurable.) The careful, user-friendly English-language instructions for the various items in the apartment made their use practical and mostly error-free. Michela provided a number of consumable products -- olive oil, vinegar, seasonings; personal care products in the bathroom -- to get us started, which certainly made our first nights in the apartment trouble-free. We most highly recommend this pleasant retreat in central Rome!

It ended too soon!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to my host, Michela, my time in Rome was comfortable, complete and easy. She was so thorough and attentive that I felt so very welcome. I would (perhaps I will) return to Rome if my coin in Trevi Fountain ensures that such wishes come true. The apartment was complete with everything I needed for a comfortable stay and the location near Piazza Farnese made all the things I wanted to do at my finger tips. A good pair of walking shoes is a must, but taxis are so close by if needed. The city is decked out for Christmas which makes the evening strolls even more delightful. Mille Grazie, Michela!

Charming property, excellent location, gracious owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment in early November, 2016. The apartment is nicely but traditionally decorated, with a very large LR/DR/bedroom and a small but adequate kitchen and bath. Very clean and well maintained, with supplies provided. Michela was very helpful in getting us oriented to the apartment and neighborhood. We felt like it was a "home away from home".

Location is just off Piazza Farnese, two blocks from Campo di Fiori, convenient for walking everywhere in central Rome. Michela met us at the apartment for check-in, and ordered a car to the airport on our departure.

We most highly recommend this rental.
