About Jill

Stefan and Jill have lived in Rome for six years. They have four adult children and have lived in London, the South of France and Rome over the past 30 years. Stefan is an art dealer and Jill an artist.

Why Jill chose Rome

No one will argue that Rome is the most beautiful city in the world!

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment has been decorated to a high standard and has a very quirky and ecclectic flavour often leading guests to say that they have wanted to spend more time in the apartment then walking around the city. There are many comfortable sofas to sit on and romantic vistas out onto the inner courtyard of this very beautiful and gracious building.

Best Place in ROMA

  • 5 of 5

The apt was exceptionally decorated, very big for our family of 7. We were met at the airport by the driver, Giorgio, and we were driven to the apt where we were greeted by Tia who showed us around the apt. The apt was very clean and very refreshing. The kitchen was huge and had all the appliances that you will ever need. The washer/dryer came in very handy as well. I can't say enough about the perfect location of the appt, near restaurants, shops and many many historical sites. We had a wonderful time and I can't wait to come back. Jill, you made our Christmas holiday very memorable and special. Thank you so much for letting us be your guests.

Owner's Response: Sam, you and your family of 7 were the perfect guests and we are delighted that your stay was a happy one. It is wonderful to know that a large family feels comfortable and at home in the Galleria. I hope the Christmas lunch reservation at Santa Lucia was a success! Rome is a superb location for a family Christmas but then again it is ideal for almost any excuse to visit! Please come back again soon. My best wishes to you and your family for 2017! Kind regards, Jill

Fabulous location! Great apartment.

Jill, our host, could not have been more gracious or welcoming!! She recommended a fantastic driver. This apartment is in the Monti district with great restaurants within a few blocks, and the Forum is a quick 15 minute walk. Highly recommend this apartment and host!!

Wow, excellent apartment at a premium location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 2 adults and 3 teenagers and the apartment was just perfect in all senses. It is clean, very nicely decorated and on walking distance from many of Rome's cultural highlights.

We felt ourselves home quit fast. The kitchen is well equipped and several shops are close by. It was very easy that the house (and kitchen) contained already a set of goods like salt, pepper, species, ... even some coffee and tea. A nice welcome package surprised us as well.

Several good restaurants on less than 300m walking distance.

Jill's hospitality is beyond compare, she is very responsive in communication and flexible where possible. The reception was well prepared.

I can recommend Jill's taxi recommendation... What a luxury to be picked up at the airport and to be dropped off in front of the door by a nice, good English speaking cab driver who knows the way. Everything went also smooth on departure.

Jill, thank you again for making the stay for us in Rome so nice (after our difficult period).

Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent the most wonderful 8 days and nights in Rome at Jill's beautiful and elegant apartment. We had the absolute best time, mostly because of the fabulous location. It is wonderfully situated on a quiet street, in a very safe part of Rome and in the most fabulous neighborhood. There was so much to see and do in the Monti area - lots of great shops, delightful boutiques and amazing restaurants. In fact, one of best restaurants we dined at was just a block away - Sa Tanca Crostaceria! Don't miss it, especially if you are a seafood lover.

We walked absolutely everywhere, seeing so much of Rome's treasures and getting to know the city. It was always such a pleasure to return "home" at the end of our day. I loved being able to walk in the door and make a cup of tea or have some cheese and wine before going out to dinner in the evening. Having the kitchen was a must with two growing teenagers! Unfortunately, we did not take advantage of having Francesco prepare a meal for us. Jill provided us with excellent recommendations and was always very responsive to questions. One of the best was arranging for Giorgio to collect us and take us back to the airport. Hope to return again!!!

Christmas 2015 in Rome!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous, spacious and clean apartment in an absolutely perfect location. It deserves six stars, not just five! Our family of 4 recently spent two weeks in Rome with day trips to Florence, Venice, Naples & Pompeii. The apartment is in a very safe neighborhood with a 10 minute walk to the Colosseum and only a 15 minute walk to the main train station. This apartment is very well appointed and feels like home when you walk in the front door.

Furthermore, Jill was an absolute delight to work with. She's very responsive and went above and beyond to make sure we had a perfect holiday. We had a very special Christmas and have already recommended this property to several close friends. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to Rome!

Owner's Response: Hello K and thank you so much for your wonderful comments - nothing makes me happier than to receive a note to say that our guests have enjoyed their stay with us at the Galleria. It is especially good when such an important trip as a Christmas holiday together with family in a foreign and strange city is a success. Most importantly I am delighted that the Galleria felt like a home away from home for you and your extended family. I do hope you will come back soon and perhaps next time you might like stay at our other apartment, the Attico or indeed if come for a very large family gathering you might like The Palace Residence, a magnificent five bedroom single family home adjacent to Piazza Navona. Regardless which place we shall look forward to welcoming you! Tanti auguri per 2016. Jill

Where do you live?

A home in Rome....

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two months in the elegantly appointed apartment in an historic building in the Monti neighborhood. From the hand-painted high ceilings to the gorgeous mosaic terrazzo floors, the apartment was stunning - filled with antiques and beautiful artwork. Within easy walking distance to excellent restaurants, unique boutiques, and food shops. Rome's monuments, churches, art treasures, and shopping were all within reach either by walking or a short subway ride. The kitchen was well-stocked, the bed and bath linens were lovely, and the assortment of dishes and glasses was ample whether it was just the two of us or if we were entertaining guests. I can't say enough good about the apartment and Jill, who was at the ready with advice, suggestions, and help. We were treated like family.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review. You were a pleasure to have as guests and doubly satisfying to see how you both jumped into life in Rome with such enthusiasm and appreciation. Somehow I think you will be back as you clearly caught the Roman bug! Come back again soon. Jill

The area of Monti is a favoured Roman part of town loved for its ambience of 'real Rome' with the few remaining artisan galleries and workshops in its midst. It is a rich atmosphere with important churches and monuments, fabulous restaurants, the famous shopping district of Via Condotti a ten minute walk, ICE CREAM SHOPS GALORE, supermarket around the corner, open air bus tours one street over as are all main line buses and a taxi rank. We can arrange for tour guides to fit every interest and need. Guests can visit in the morning the wonderful bakery around the corner and bring back some of Rome's best 'Cornetti' (croissants) to enjoy on the remarkable terrace overlooking the city - from here plan out your day and which sites to see!
