About Diana Araimo

Alberto, was born in Milano, Diana was born in Napoli, a good blend of Italian flavours, North and South together. The both of us were Managers in Multinational Companies in Operations and Purchasing myself , and Commercial and Marketing Diana, before starting this new life in hospitality.

Alberto loves to talk about economics and is passionate of Sudoku. Diana is graduate in Italian Letterature, is a fantastic chef and an heavy reader. Our Houses are full of book in Italian, English and different languages. Some are a kind present from our past Guests.

We love people and good companies, we love good food and good wine. Both of us are Sommelier.

We own and rent apartments and villa in Spoleto in our Historic House le Logge di Silvignano and this cosy Apartment in Roma.

We own our Apartment in Roma since 1999, when we married after 6 year of life in common. It was our “nest” in Roma, where to hide coming back from our business trips around Europe, busy and stressed managers. Meanwhile, we began the restoration of our Historic House of Le Logge di Silvignano in Spoleto, our big project for our future life together.

The restoration was completed in 2002, we began to live and manage our Hospitality business in Silvignano, sometimes moving to Roma for a visit to our daughter and grandchildren.

Then, our Guests of Le Logge di Silvignano (often turned into good friends) asked us to make them available our Apartment and we are now glad to do the same for couples who can appreciate and respect our “nest”.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Diana,

I have been meaning to write to tell you how perfect everything was in the apartment, and particularly to thank you for your "accueil chaleureux" when we arrived. It was so nice to have someone waiting for us when we arrived and to explain everything and make us feel at home. Also, to have left us the essentials for breakfast, and particularly the gluten-free!, was a great help.

I would love to come again and I also have been dreaming about coming to Spoleto....... to visit you at Le Logge di Silvignano Historic House. I certainly feel like I need something like that . What about in July and August?

Do let me know when you decide to come to Paris in September - I'd be happy to meet up and welcome you to my home - it's in central Paris, just near the Eiffel Tower, so very easy to get to.

I hope that you have a good summer - warm regards to you both

Stella and Adrian

PS TripAdvisor have been hassling me to write a review. I find them very invasive and am not very keen to enter into their world, and as you have 100% 5 star reviews, I hope that my failure to respond to their insistent emails does not matter in any way.

Live as a citizen of Rome.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfect for two .We stayed in Rome 8 weeks, and had a lot of guests for dinner partys in the lovely diningroom even in the cosy kitchen. I know, I am not an ordinary tourist of Rome, who only thinks of visiting the amazing historical centrum, which by the way was easy to reached by the tram nr.8 , no problems ! I first of all enjoyed to live as a citizen of Rome and I did my shopping on the foodmarket nearby. And that was a great joy, you could here buy all you need for an italian dinner.I miss it so much, especially the artichokes ! I have rate my stay to five stars, I do not think I need to say more. Only that the owners Diana and Alberto were very friendly, thank you so much !

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Our 5 night stay at Diana's lovely apartment exceeded our expectations and the location was excellent. It was well furnished, had a very comfortable bed, 2 nice bathrooms, 2 terraces, a well equipped kitchen, excellent wi-fi', the building had an elevator and it was a walk of 2 short blocks to reach tram # 8 to take you into the city. It was very quiet and peaceful.

There are several take out places within walking distance and we found that so convenient after spending long days exploring Rome. As well, there are ample small grocery and wine stores close by and the open food market at Piazza San Giovanni which is located right across the street from the # 8 tram stop.

Diana is a wonderful hostess; she arranged for our pick up at the airport on our arrival and met us at the apartment. She took us around the neighborhood and pointed out restaurants, small grocery stores. etc. and even took us to the TIM store to get a sim card for our cell phone.

Diana also arranged taxis for us on 2 different occasions - for our very early morning tour of the Vatican and again on our day of departure to the Avis car rental office.

Thank you Diana, you made our trip to Rome so easy.

Our Best Rental Experience

  • 5 of 5

Two full months at Diana and Alberto's wonderful flat in Monteverde.

- total peace and quiet

- one of the most comfortable beds we've ever slept on

- excellent seating in both living and dining

- well-equipped kitchen -- you need to look carefully, but in our opinion there's almost everything: we cooked just about every day

- perfect wifi

- wonderful open-air market at less than 5 minutes' walk, plus a couple of supermarkets between 5 and 10 minutes' walk

- excellent weekly professional laundry service for bed, bath, and kitchen linens, plus once-weekly housekeeping - it's an "extra", but we wouldn't have lived without it.

- neighborhood totally authentic, no tourists, yet convenient to everything via the number 8 tram and a number of bus lines

We'd truly have to struggle to think of anything "negative" about the place. Maybe there could be a vegetable steamer, a bigger pasta pot, more frying pans with covers. Water pressure in the shower could be better. But we're forcing it to make such comments. This apartment is first-class. We've probably rented nearly 100 times over the past 40 years. This is the best.

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

First I would have to start with my initial contact with Diana. From the very start she was quick to response to all my emails and answer all of my questions. From the pictures on the website the apartment looked very nice and comfortable. Upon our arrival I was shocked to see that it was everything that the pictures showed and more... I was delighted.

The apartment was clean and fresh and ready for our stay. It has everything you could possibly need...fully equipped kitchen, washer,two bathrooms, two showers,

two balconies.

The apartment building was beautifully maintained and gave you a feeling of privacy and safety . The neighborhood was quiet and safe. It was only a block walk to the #8 Tram line that takes you into Rome along with the H bus that takes you to the train other words the transportation aspect was great. My husband and I could not believe how lucky we were to have selected Diana's and Alberto's apartment.

The apartment was professional cleaned once and week so everything was always nice and neat.

Diana was only a text or email away if we had questions.

The farmers market that is located about two blocks away and runs Monday-Saturday from 8-1:00 was unreal it made you want to cook.

We could not have asked for more in our 2 month stay.

One other thing I must say because we were staying for an extended period of time I'm so happy that we were outside of Rome (about 20 minutes by Tram or Bus) when I was first planning this trip I wanted to be in Ancient Rome..but in reality it would have been sensory overload..instead we could go back to the neighborhood at night and have nice evenings away from the Tourist.

Diana and Alberto are wonderful can rent their apartment knowing you are in good hands.

Like Staying at good friend's home indeed!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfect for two, provided of everithings you need and more. Furnished at very high standard, with comfortable space on cosy terrace for dining outside. Our host Diana was fantastic in providing us with plenty of information about restaurants, markets, places to visit both in the premises and in the most important areas of the city. The house is located in a very convenient area of the city, quiet and with the real athmosphere of the Roma popular quarters, but very close to Trastevere and the historic center, that you can reach in a few fast tram stops. We will come back should we have a new opportunity of visiting Roma. To be recommended.

Monteverde district is a Residential, green, and peaceful area, with the Best Food Open-air Market in Roma, for providing yourself of good, fresh and local food at competitive market price.

Rome inhabitants consider Trastevere and Monteverde a unique district, with 'real' daylife in Monteverde with its Markets and shops, and sparkling nightlife in Trastevere with Restaurants, Pizzerie and wine bars. You will definitely enjoy Trastevere, but after midnight you will be happy to stay just aside, in Monteverde, if you like to sleep well !!

Monteverde is close to Gianicolo Hill with the most amazing night and day view of Roma. The Historic City Center is very close and easy to reach thanks to the Tramcar N. 8 that takes you to Largo Argentina in 20' (terminus), walking distance to Piazza Venezia or Piazza Navona or Pantheon.

Porta Portese Sunday open-air Flea-market at 10' Tramcar.

Monteverde is also strategically located for reaching Airports and Raylway Station by public means of transports or taxi.

If you like to walk and relax in the nature you can e the most beautiful ancient Villa with wide Park in Roma: Villa Pamphili, 500 meter only from the apartment. The park also includes a couple of small lakes.

A good mix of Shops and Restaurants of different price level are available in the premises, with a target price of local customers. Good quality italian recipies and pizza Take-Aways are at walking distance, together with one of the best ice-cream maker in town.

A very efficient Assisted Laundry is located in the Apartment road, a few steps distance.
