About The Owner

I'm a 35 years old girl. I've a degree in law, but I'm still studing for more specializations. I love languages; in particular I love french, but I also speak a little bit of english since it's the most important language and most of my guests come from USA. I like to keep in contact with my guests and to give them all the help they need during their holiday.It's a pleasure for me.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2009

Why The Owner chose Rome

Few yars ago I started to rent a flat of mine and since it was amusing I decided to buy a new one, in a great location for my guests. So I did.

What makes this apartment unique

I think the best benefit of this flat is the location, so close to the Vaticano, to the Metro station and bus station, with lots of restaurants and shops all around. This is very funny for people that come to visist my city.

Four of us arrived at the Catone apartment & Carla, the owner, did an absolutely fantastic job at helping us get settled in & identifying the surroundings! The apartment was very bright & clean & very accessible to restaurants and the Vatican. In addition, the apartment was quite quiet considering that it is so centrally located! Our intention was to attend the Papal Mass & audience, & Carla so graciously picked up our tickets for us, as our flight came in the day after the cutoff time to retrieve our tickets. Carla could not have been more accommodating! We will definitely stay at Catone on trip to Rome,& we very highly recommend others to do so, as well!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the two bedroom location on Via Catone; Carla does a fantastic job managing the properties and is very responsive and professional. The apartment is perfectly clean, really quiet (for central Rome), and the AC and wifi work great. This apartment has a little balcony overlooking the street and giving a (distant) view of the Vatican. When you get home from a long day, it is a perfect place to drink a glass of wine and people-watch.

Both bedrooms have an ensuite bathroom with excellent water pressure (never taken for granted in an older Italian building), as well as individual a/c units allowing you to adjust the temperature to what you prefer. The main living area is small but perfectly comfortable. Washing machine works great.

We were traveling for work, so we didn't do much sightseeing but tram/metro/bus stops are close by, as are a number of good places to eat. We especially recommend L' Arcangelo on Via G.G. Belli (Michelin Guide). We went to the Vatican one afternoon and enjoyed sitting in the garden after all the tourists had gone.

We like this side of the Tiber, since it is less crowded and chaotic. Highly recommended!

Wonderful apartment and even more wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has all the wonderful amenities you need while on vacation from the newly updated bedrooms and bathrooms to a washer/dryer unit. Not to mention being in an excellent location steps away from the Vatican. On top of that, Carla was a wonderful resource with respect to advice on where to eat, sightseeing and transportation in and around Rome. We had a marvelous time in large part due to having a fabulous place to rest after all our daily activities. I highly recommend this apartment.

Location, Location, Location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfect! Two bedrooms each with a private bath room, kitchen has all you could ask for to make wonderful meals. It is spacious and very comfortable. As others have said, everything you need is within a four block walk. Metro access to all of Rome is simple and easy, a block from your front door! Carla is an amazing, knowledgeable, and gracious host. She will answer all of your questions, get you special rates for parking, and responds to calls immediately. I have travel widely though out the world and can say, without reservation, this is the place to stay while visiting Rome. I wish I had this apartment in every city I visit. While traveling, quiet time, good sleep, stress free arrangements, home cooking and expert support are essential. This is the gift Carla gives you when you book this apartment. One could't ask for a better hostess or a better apartment.

catone apartment

  • 5 of 5

my sister and i spent 2 weeks at carla's catone apartment and found it to be an excellent location for everything. metro close, as well as lots corner stones for grocery items. a great farmers market just 2 or 3 short blocks away for everything from produce to meats and seafood. this is open from early to around noon weekdays and saturday. lots of local restaurants within the surrounding blocks of the apartments. the best is on the corner catone and the next block turning left as you leave the door of the apartment bldg. the apartment has everything you need to eat in, though we only had breakfasts and snacks in. we ate out during the day as we enjoyed rome usually stopping for dinner on the way back. the apartment is accurately depicted in photos on the website. beds comfortable, sofa in living room comfortable. small juliet balcony. there is 1 annoying little step down from the living room that you must be careful about. this would not be suitable for wheelchair or walker. carla very helpful for any issue and returns calls immediately. she works with a driver, massimo, who picked us up and returned us to the airport. he also has a special license and is available for touring rome. we hired him for 2 days of sightseeing and it was great to have someone wait for you and proceed to the next site without having to use the metro or taxi. he took us to all the places we didn't want to spend a long time at, but did wish to see (beautiful churches) and we took in the other main sites via tour or used the metro or taxi. i would stay there again, and send my family. i highly recommend carla's catone apartment, and i think that all the others she owns and rents out would be of the same high caliber. my sister and i are independent travelers of 69 and 70.

Excellent apartment in Rome

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Catone apartment and had a great time. Carla was a great host and gave us many suggestions for our stay. The apartment was spotless and has everything you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable including a washer/dryer combo and fast Internet. The location was in a perfect place close to the Vatican and public transportation. There are many restaurants and stores in the area as well. I would highly recommend Carla's apartments to anyone taking a trip to Rome.
