About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, 5 Sleeps

Spectacular penthouse with big terraces over viewing the very heart of Rome. A stone's throw from the historical centre, just 250 metres from Piazza del Popolo, an extraordinary roof top apartment of 135 sq m opening onto 200 sq m panoramic terraces on three levels that offer a 360° breathtaking view on the city of Rome. On these terraces you can enjoy a drink or have dinner surrounded by beautiful flowers with a view on the quaint roof tops and the domes of the city centre, Villa Borghese gardens and the Pincio, Villa Medici- the French Academy, Trinità dei Monti, the Quirinale-the Presidential Palace and the Altare della Patria in Piazza Venezia.

The gorgeous, light and spacious rooms are furbished with original Italian antique furniture, and parquet wooden floors and they all open onto the beautiful terrace. They all have air-conditioning, double-glazed windows, thick curtains & shutters which completely cut out the light and the noise by night.

The apartment is located on the 5th floor of an elegant building dated 1924, with a smart entrance and a beautiful marble staircase. In 2016 this building was completely restored. The unique elevator is the same model as the one used to connect the private apartments of the Pope to the St. Peter's Basilica.

The apartment, full of charme, welcomes guests via a hallway, double living room and a dining room with a round table for up to ten people..

There are three bedrooms with three bathrooms: a master bedroom with double bed, the second bedroom with two single beds, the third bedroom with a single bed. All bathrooms are equipped with a bathtub and shower extension.

In the living room there is also an armchair with fold able bed within.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a 5 burner gas stove, electric oven, fridge and freezer, dishwasher and microwave .

There is air conditioning in the whole apartment, one in each bedroom and one in the living room. There is a television with digital channels, WiFi and independent heating.

Access to the apartment is via the elevator to the forth floor, and a flight of stairs to walk up.

The doorman is present throughout the week and on Saturday mornings. It is a very safe neighborhood. On Via Flaminia there are small grocery shops and a daily fruit, vegetable and fish market.

If you have a little child there is everything you might need: a baby cot, a baby seat, many games, books and a wonderful, historical park at just 3 minutes walking distance (Villa Borghese) as well as the 'Museo dei Bambini' (Children's Museum).

About Veronika Garms

Visiting other countries, meeting people belonging to other cultures, is my great passion. I have traveled all around the world, lived in many different homes, hotels, apartments, and I know what makes a traveler feel at home. I will try to offer this to our guests. I grew up in Italy as a foreigner, having Austrian parents, and then settled down here marrying an Italian, that's why I know and love this country profoundly. I will love to share my knowledge with those who come to our home. Having myself two little children, I know what it means to travel with children, and our home will be really child friendly, full of toys, games, books and other useful things. I believe that traveling with children is wonderful!

Why Veronika Garms chose Centro Storico

We live in the same building, and this makes it very easy for us to be always present for our guests. If you need help in organizing your days in Rome, we can book a transfer from the airport for you with a reliable shuttle service, or help you organize guided tours of the city with a fantastic, English speaking art-historian.

Beautiful and expansive property! I real gem in Rome!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more pleased with the apartment! It has numerous doors and hallways to close off areas that don't need to be temperature controlled. The lighting was bright and cheery and the patio had 3 different levels! It was a palace in our eyes!

Conveniently located apartment with amazing terraces

  • 5 of 5

The apartment's terraces are amazing. If you envision spending much time on terraces of your rental, I'd strongly recommend this rental. It really does have circumferential views and 3 levels. Location is a quick/easy walk from Piazza del Popolo. I really liked the neighborhood. It was quiet and felt very safe but was also an easy walk to more busy areas with more activities. Flaminio station is very close though we didn't use it much. Also, there were enough grocery options and restaurants within a few blocks to meet our needs for quick errands. The apartment itself was also very secure.

As mentioned, the elevator goes up one floor less than this rental unit but we did not find this to be a problem at all.

Wonderful owners. Were great to work with in arranging the stay and offered good local advice upon arrival.

Apartment size was very spacious for our party of two couples and 1 child with plenty of room inside and on terraces to spend time together or relax individually. Of note, one of the two larger bedrooms has twin beds, which was one thing that I wished was different.

For our next trip to Rome we would be likely to try to rent this unit again, depending on the number in our party.

Gorgeous penthouse!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this gorgeous penthouse with an unbelievable wraparound terrace in early July. The apartment itself is very spacious and beautifully appointed. The AC was wonderful in the hot weather and it was a pleasure coming home to this place each day. The kitchen has been remodeled and is very convenient to use. We prepared most of our evening meals here so we could enjoy the balcony and the view. The bathrooms are a little outdated and there is an ant problem, but the rest of the beautiful apartment more than made up for the issue. The owner was very helpful and very easy to communicate with. She was so friendly and showed us around the apartment and even had ice cold water for us in the fridge.... a lifesaver after our journey in the heat. She was also very helpful in arranging a car service for transport to the airport.

The location is also fantastic. Very close to the metro station and right across the street from Plaza del Popolo.

I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend. Thank you, Veronika and Eleonora!

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this amazing house (with 3 levels of rooftop with panoramic views of Rome!) for 3 days. Everything about our stay was great. Eleonora and Veronika could not be more gracious and helpful and kind. The location is perfect. The house itself is bright and very comfortable. There is an elevator but you need to climb a flight of stairs to get to this penthouse apartment, so that may be an issue for some people. Will definitely recommend this place to all my friends!

This apartment is just as lovely and welcoming as the pictures suggest. There is an elevator in this charming 1920's building but please note that this penthouse apartment is up one additional flight of stairs. The location is superb and Veronika was on site to help in any ways we needed. We stayed a month, cooked a bit and enjoyed the terraces. Don't miss the restaurant Osteria St. Ana in the neighborhood. We can not imagine a better place to stay while in Rome.

Exploring with the Kids

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to take our daughter, son in law and granddaughter for a visit to Rome. As previous reviews stated the place is elegant with an outstanding roof patio that provided a 360 degree view. Three bed rooms and three bathrooms provided privacy for us all. Additionally we had a fully working kitchen, a dining room, living room,library and a foyer. Each one of the rooms had access to the roof patio equipped wit tables and chairs.

Since we did not need our car while in Rome the owners even provided a garage for our car free of charge while we stayed there. I cant wait to bring our friends there for our next visit.
