It’s not often you get the chance to stay in a brand new, architect & interior designer’s apartment so grab this opportunity while you can.

The living room is bright and airy with plenty of natural light and contains comfortable but stylish modern and antique furniture and some beautiful pieces of art. Recently the apartement has been upgraded with a Sky TV satellite service which provide sports, films and news.

The dining area has a beautiful wooden antique table that seats six and is ideal for entertaining.

Why Sergio & Antonella chose 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.

What a beautiful apartment. Antonella and Sergio met us at the door and even helped us park. This apartment has all the love of a true artisan displayed throughout the apartment. We were able to walk to all the big attractions; yet stay out of the tourist district with all its high prices and throngs of people. We frequented the restaurants in the neighborhood for many of our meals; really enjoying Andrea's just to the right of your entry. Also to the right on Settembre is one of the best ice cream shops. It stays busy all day and night frequently with lines.

I visited the RYoga studio just off of Settembre. I found them friendly and inviting; conducting classes in Italian and English for me. If you need a shoe repair, there is a great one on Bellisario (Neno I think is the name). Also walking distance just beyond the Ryoga studio. The ritzy area by the American Embassy is also an easy walk.

This was our first stay that had American channels and a washer and dryer. It was just a beautiful apartment and we would stay here again when visiting Rome. The stairs to the second bedroom might be challenging to some. The stairs are only about 10 and the ceiling is low about 5.5 but I'm 57 and I managed just fine.

The locals in the area were so pleasant and we really enjoyed our stay. Thanks again Antonella and Sergio

Really amazing apartment. Great location close to metro and tourist hop on hop off bus.

  • 5 of 5

We were met at the stylish and quirky apartment by friendly housekeeper who talked us through everything. The air conditioned apartment is fully equipped to a high standard. Although we ate out every evening we could easily have entertained here. Our teenage children loved the mezzanine bedroom. There's many restaurants to choose from close by - and the best ice cream parlour in Rome. Strongly recommend this as your base for any trip to Rome.

Stylish apartment in the quite embassy district

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment! Spacious and beautifully decorated, it's also in a very quiet neighborhood. On the ground floor with a nice open courtyard, easy access from the street.

Good climate control, the air conditioning kept us comfy on hot days, made for good sleeping at night.

The owners were very helpful and communicated perfectly to make sure everything was ok. Highly recommended!

Excellent experience from start to finish . Communication was excellent. This place is incredibly high value both for its internal furnishings, location to train station, pleasant and professional management. The air conditioning was absolutely wonderful . My kids loved the upstairs enclosed glass bedroom. Very cool. If you want to get the 'Wow' Factor then stay here :-)

Spectacular place in the heart of Rome!! Very clean and equipped with everything we needed!!

Antonella was fantastic to deal with. She answered our emails and questions promptly. We were late arriving from the airport and she stayed and waited for us. She was late going to a meeting because of this. She wanted to make sure we were greeted properly. She recommended local restaurants and markets nearby. We felt very safe in that neighbourhood. We didn't rent a car while in Rome. We were able to walk everywhere from the property. Termini is very close and we even walked with our luggage to catch our train to continue our vacation.

Car: not necessary

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.
