About Sergio & Antonella

I am an architect who specialises in preserving the beauty and romance of historic buildings and Roman ruins combining it with state of the art high tech architectural materials. My wife Antonella is a manager and a mother of two beautiful sons, Fiamma and Giovanni. She runs the hospitality of our apartement with care and with a special eye on guest's needs.

Sergio & Antonella purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Sergio & Antonella chose Centro Storico (Old Rome)

Why us? Simply, our apartments provide more amenities, more space, and more overall comfort than a comparable hotel - and we're able to offer better rates! The fully-functioning kitchens, comfortable lounge rooms, and quality bedding & linen that our apartments boast allow you to enjoy Rome without compromising on lifestyle. To experience Rome in first-class surroundings, please contact us at any time.

We boast a free high-speed (WiFi) internet connection, a television, and all other modern conveniences. queries or bookings.

We bought our apartment because we were able to design it to our own specifications and keep many of the original features.

We also love the area, it is extremely quiet but a short walk to the city centre, the main museums, beautiful squares, churches and the railway station. It is also a 2 minute walk from Trimani, the best wine shop in Rome with a fabulous restaurant next door.

What makes this apartment unique

It's great location in Rome. Sightseeing start the moment you walk out the door.

The welcoming private courtyard when you arrive.

The peace and quiet once you are inside

The amazing no-expense-spared design and features of the apartment.

Beautiful art, antiques, comfy beds, fresh new linen and towels.

A fully fitted modern kitchen.

Furnished with exquisite taste and a keen eye for quirky detail.

The best hospitality from our new Roman friends.

  • 5 of 5

It was our first trip to Rome. We found smiling Antonella waiting for us at the property. The house was amazing. It is located near the bus stops, which really helped us to catch a bus and explore Rome .Exactly as it was described, clean, tidy, the facilities more than helpful and the owner, Antonella, gave us the best customer service! I will surely recommend it to friends. Thank you so much!!!

A perfect Roman Holiday!

Perfection in Rome!

My family just returned from a lovely holiday in Rome made perfect by our stay at Antonella and Sergio's glorious apartment. Walking distance to the Spanish Steps and other Roman sites, we couldn't have asked for a better place to end and start our days!

Luxurious, well fitted....and spacious enough for 5 of us, we are certainly going to return!

This place was wonderful and we would recommend.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are cruisers and have extensive experience spending winter months off of our boat in European cities. We found this apartment to be exceptional beyond any property that we have stayed in our 10 Years in the Med. There is not another property that compares to it. In every way it qualifies as a five star property. The location is excellent and after 4 months we felt the apartment was located perfectly for enjoying one of the most beautiful and romantic places in the world. We walked to the local markets every day after working out at a local gym. We enjoyed our favorite restaurant just a block away and our best wine bar a few steps away. We walked to the Opera to see Rigoletto, the Colosseum, the Spanish Steps and the Villa Borghese. It's a quiet location, inside a private courtyard.

The owners, Antonella and Sergio are fantastic hosts and were very lovely to us in the true Italian tradition. They were also very helpful in making sure that everything was attended to, keeping the apartment in good condition.

The winter months were very comfortable as the apartment has excellent heating. We had several guests and family over the Christmas holidays who loved the loft bedroom and private bath.

We have recommended the property to friends and family.

stunning

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fabulous few days in the OLD GLASSWORKS. The apartment is beautifully presented. Antonella and Sergio have clearly given a lot of time and thought to creating a space which is both cosy and luxurious. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment but there are so many great places to eat nearby you may not choose to cook much. If you do decide to cook try the local fruit and veg street market for fresh produce which is fantastic value. The locals all shop there.

All in all the apartment was a real find and we look forward to thinking up a reason to make a return trip.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our trip to Rome, staying at this lovely apartment. Antonella answered all our queries, and arranged transfers both from and to the airport. The apartment is clean and well equipt. Soap and shower gel were provided, this is very useful as it saves on baggage weight. The lovely deep bath was a very welcome treat when returning from a long day sightseeing. If I had a slight criticism, it would be that cups and plates would have been better to be more accessible, within the kitchen area, and more drawer storage space in the bedrooms. However we used the very spacious storeroom to store our clothing etc. it wasn't too much of a problem. The fact that the apartment is within a private courtyard area made us feel very safe. I would recommend this apartment, for a pleasant break in Rome.

Rome’s famous churches, fountains, squares, museums and monuments start almost from the moment you walk out the door.

Walk in one direction past the Sir Basil Spence designed British Embassy to Michelangelo’s Porta Pia.

In the other direction you find the stunning Piazza della Repubblica off which is the equally stunning Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri Basilica, whilst Santa Maria della Vittoria, the finest Baroque church in Rome (possibly Europe) on Via XX Settembre and Via Nazionale are also all within a few minutes walk.

Keep going and you’ll be at the Quirinale, Trevi Fountains, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, Campo de' Fiori and Colosseum and all the major sights in a matter of minutes.

Or take a different route and walk through the beautiful Villa Borghese towards the Spanish Steps and Piazza del Popolo and across to the Vatican.

The apartment is right next to the British Embassy.
