About Massimo

I have been working in a bank for many years. I'm very fond of Music, football and cooking. Deeply in love with my home town I have chosen to live 20 years ago in this wonderful borough, Borgo Pio, which is really authentic and lively and where you can find anything you need enjoying the atmosphere of real Roma.

Massimo purchased this apartment in 2011

Beautiful apartment with plenty of space

  • 5 of 5

5 of us (a group of friends in our 20s) stayed at the apartment and we had plenty of space. The apartment is well kept with nice furnishings, and is in a nice neighborhood. We were able to go everywhere we wanted by walking. I would definitely stay here again!

Great location and Warm cozy apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during cold period in Rome, apartment was warm and cozy! It was big enough for 4 of us, very spacious and comfortable. Beds were very comfortable. Apartment is 2.5 stories upstairs without elevator, which was not a problem for us; We were happy for the exercise! ( considering we are in our 40's and 60's).

Francesca was easy to work with. Prompt email and watsup communication. She made it easy for us by arranging taxi from and to the airport.

Location: Apartment is 2 blocks away from the Vatican and approximately 15 min from attraction like Piazza Navona by bus (we used bus #40 2 blocks away from apartment). We had all we need in the kitchen although I wish we had more toilet paper and 1 more towel for each one of us for the week. We are definitely going to stay in the apartment again if we visit Rome again.

Great apartment in wonderful neighborhood near the Vatican

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Rome with our three children and stayed 5 nights in this lovely apartment. Was well located and safe and comfortable. I don't usually write reviews, but I would highly recommend this flat! Beds were comfortable, bathrooms were very nice, kitchen and family room areas were great for hanging out as a family. We loved walking around the neighborhood day and night. Groceries and restaurants were all nearby. Thank you for hosting us!

A true home in Rome.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment with my wife, mother-in-law, and 3-year-old daughter for a month. I've been to Rome half a dozen times or more and stayed in several types of accommodations in several different neighborhoods. This apartment is the only place that felt like home, and its neighborhood, Borgo, is my favorite so far in which to stay.

The apartment was spacious, clean, and offered a lot of natural light. Three adults and a child stayed here very comfortably over the course of several weeks. All the rooms are a good size and offer not only comfortable places to sleep, but also comfortable spaces in which to relax, read, watch one's tablet, etc., during the day. The living room was also very nice, and large enough for multiple members of the family to rest, watch tv, read, etc., during the day. Finally, the kitchen was plenty big and allowed for a comfortable cooking and dining atmosphere.

The apartment is well-located. It's in a quiet, calm neighborhood in which one can work in peace (I was there researching and writing). You're close to the Vatican and Castel Sant'Angelo, as well as buses, tram, and metro line to get you any where in the city. For folks with children, there is a lovely little play ground in the park right behind Castel Sant'Angelo. Then, you can also get to Villa Borghese where there are at least two play grounds by bus or by tram from Piazza del Risorgimento. Finally, the COOP grocery store is a five-minute walk away, and is a great resource. The staff was nice, the store well-stocked, and the quality of the food very good. There are also numerous quality restaurants within a five-minute walk, but with the food at the grocery store being so good, and the kitchen so large and well-equipped, we found ourselves eating in most meals.

Aside from the area and place itself, Francesca and Silvia were kind, professional, and caring hosts. They helped provided ample orientation to the area; generously helped arrange for private taxi services (think ahead and book through them... it's more convenient and economical than regular taxis!); and were always there when we needed them via phone or email (quick responses, too!).

The end result was, as the title reveals, a place that truly felt like home in Rome. I am fortunate enough to be in a line of work that will certainly bring me back to the Eternal City. And, in my mind's eye, I see my family and me staying here again, hopefully for an even longer period of time. Grazie!

You'll feel like you're at home in a quiet neighborhood and an easy walk to many sights

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a month here and were sad to leave. We walked almost everywhere from here but public transportation was very assessable when we wanted it. Rome is such a busy city and it was great to have a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of Rome. The apartment is well equipped for cooking which was important for a long stay. Air-conditioning, wifi, TV and washer were all appreciated. We can't say enough about the helpful assistance from Francesca, the manager. Not only was she very available at all times with advise and help but she is a warm and gracious person. Don't hesitate to book this apartment.
