Hi, I'm Irene. I inherited this flat from my parents and am very attached to it. I was born and brought up in Scotland and 'brought over' to Italy when my parents retired, but I've been living here a lifetime and now consider Italy as home, although I often think fondly of my childhood in Scotland. It was my sons’ idea that I rent this flat out to tourists. I decided to give it a try and have been happily welcoming people from all over the world since August 2006. I would love to welcome you too. I speak English, French and Italian and a little German and Spanish.
What makes this Apartment unique
The flat has a homely atmosphere and is close to everything: supermarkets, bakeries, restaurants, 'pizzerias and gelaterias', boutiques, banks, open air fruit and vegetable market, etc. The location is fantastic. From the balcony you have a beautiful view of the hills to the south of Rome and the Via Appia Nuova. The underground stop is right at the doorstep, and bus stops too, which means there's no walking to do when you come back at night with weary feet. You will be living in a typically Roman area and be able to mix with the locals. If you get tired of city life and want a breath of fresh air, go and visit the Caffarella Park. It's just short walk away and is the most significant remaining example of ancient countryside in the city. You'll see many monuments from different ages, besides sheep grazing here and there and a good few vegetable gardens. I look forward to seeing you.

Location, Location, Location
We were just steps from the Metro 'A' line, which connected us to everything Rome. Across the street were a market and cafeteria which served the most decadent desserts. Our hostess was most gracious.
Perfect for our needs
The location was great...half a block to the metro, a supermarket next door, and another a block away. Great restaurant across the street. The apt. was equipped with everything we needed. Irene was very helpful.
Thank you for writing this lovely review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and were comfortable in our apartment. It was a pleaure to meet both of you. Take care, Irene
Super clean, comfortable and well positioned
From first arrival and meeting our lovely host, Irene, who made us welcome and was very helpful in the best places to eat, shop and travel to the centre of Rome, the experience at this apartment was great. Very comfortable with all the amenities needed for a relaxing, and sometimes hectic, holiday. Literally only a few steps to Metro, buses supermarkets and restraunts, although cooking in some lovely fresh fish from across the road was also a treat.
Thanks for this lovely review, Lorraine and Ken. It was my pleasure to meet you and I'm so glad you enjoyed your Roman experience in our apartment. Thanks for coming to stay with us and a big hug to both of you, Irene
Irene’s apartment was very comfortable with her art to enjoy on the walls.
There was great communication before and during our stay in Rome. Can’t say enough about the professional,and attention to details way, Irene interacted with us. She even arranged for a driver to meet us and bring us straight to the apartment. We would highly recommend Irene’s apartment for your visit to Rome!
Thanks so much for this great review. I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay with us as I enjoyed meeting both of you. A big hug, Irene
An Amazing Stay and a Wonderful Host!
Our stay at Irene's place was more than we could have ever expected. The apartment itself was truly a home away from home. Irene has spent a lot of time and love to create a very special retreat to share with others. The location was great - bus and metro right in the block and got us everywhere we wanted to go. Groceries and restaurants within sight all around. We thoroughly enjoyed having dinner on the balcony every night.
Irene was the perfect host and a fun lady to get to know! She went way beyond with her assistance in coordinating transportation for us upon our departure, and especially seeing that my wallet would be returned to me when I found that it had been left in a drawer. Thank you Irene!
Thanks a million for this gorgeous review. It was my pleasure to get to know you. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us in our neighbourhood in this beautiful city. I always try my best to help out as much as I can and it's good to know my efforts are appreciated. Thanks for coming to stay with us, you are welcome back any time. A big hug to both of you, Irene
Cute and Clean
Irene was a fantastic host. The apartment was a spacious and relaxing place to return to after a long day of sightseeing. It is a very short walk to an easily navigable and timely subway system. There are several eating and shopping options within view of the apartment. We would definitely stay here again.
I'm so glad you enjoyed Rome and our apartment and hope to welcome you back one day. Thanks for writing this review. All the best, Irene
One of the main assets of the property is that it is right at an A-line Metro stop (Colli Albani). The A-line Metro was built to connect all the main tourist attractions, from the Old Appian Way to the Vatican so our apartment combines the advantages of a convenient price with easy access to the historical center. All the major sights can be reached in a few minutes. Buses also widely available. Three supermarkets/grocery stores close by (one 24/7) and a great mix of shops, banks, restaurants, take-aways, pubs, pizzerias all in close proximity. The adjacent Via Appia Nuova is one of Rome's best shopping areas. Guarded garage nearby, on street parking for those of you who plan to hire a car.
