Charming and delightful!

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely flat. It was clean and well-located. We were able to walk to many key places--from the Vatican to the Colosseum. There were good restaurants nearby. Michela was a great host and covered every detail about staying in the flat. It is a Renaissance era building and the art and antique furnishings--all comfortable--added to the ambience of our Roman stay. It is true that the bathroom and kitchen were small, but quite adequate. The large main room and the location were excellent.

Wonderfull apartment in the most convenient area in Rome.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment next to the French Embassy on the Piazza Farnese. it is a 20 minute walk to the Vatican along the Arno. It is one block away from the Plaza de Campo four blocks away from a taxi stand.Wonderful restaurants abound from very reasonably priced to high end that is worth it if that is what you want. Every meal was wonderful.

You have to walk up a narrow flight of stairs. We are in our 70's and it was no problem. We only took a cab once and that was home from the Coliseum after a terrific meal with lots of wine so we didn't feel lilke walking. But we walked there past some of the best shopping in Rome so it was no problem. The bathroom is Italian modern with a great shower and plenty of hot water. There is a small kitchen where you can make Espresso and prepare some light snacks but no heavy cooking. Why would you want to when there is such a choice of terrific Roman cuisine a short walk away. There is a small washing machine that came in very handy. No dryer. Italians don't use them and it really is not needed.

Michele was a wonderful hostess who was a text away in case we needed anything. It was a true joy to stay in her apartment. She has a neat book of family history that is a work of art in itself and well worth the time to go through while drinking espresso. English language TV available so you can get your CNN, BBC or FOX news fix. Numerous tours are available just up the street too. WIFI was strong.

We would definitely stay there again next time we are in Rome.

A beautiful apartment with a very considerate owner

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the apartment March 30-April 6, 2017. It is cozy, charming and wonderfully convenient to everywhere in Rome by foot. Campo de' Fiori is five minutes away, with its restaurants, merchant booths and flowers. Michela arranged for limousine service from the airport and returning, which was a real help and highly recommended. Communicating with Michela before the trip was warm and friendly, and she is as charming as her apartment. I highly recommend this property, and we will be staying here again on our next visit.
