Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Rome - The Old Glassworks

No Expense Spared Modern Conversion Of Historic Building. 2Beds, 2Baths Sleeps 6

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.

La Vecchia Vetreria, (The Old Glassworks) is in a quiet private courtyard surrounded by great bars, restaurants and the best wine merchant in Rome with its own tasting room and restaurant.

Furnished with exquisite taste and a keen eye for quirky detail this stunning multi-level apartment has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, one en suite, and with the sofa bed in the drawing room, can comfortably sleep six.

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.

The modern open plan fully equipped kitchen comes complete with all the basics you need so you won’t have to stock up on things like olive oil, spices and dish washing liquid if you’re only there for the weekend.

The main bedroom along the corridor has a double bed and its en-suite bathroom has a spa like shower and deep tub to relax in.

The second bedroom is up a small set of open stairs (N.B. perhaps not suitable for elderly people or young children).

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.

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.

We rented this place for a few days and we were very happy with it. It has everything that you could need in a home and it is in a quieter area of town. Antonella was a terrific host and told us about some great restarsunts nearby.

Perfect Rome apartment for our family of four

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as pictured in the photos. It was beautifully furnished, artfully designed/decorated, and perfect for our family of four. It was a calm and comfortable retreat from the bustling city streets. We visited during a heat wave and greatly appreciated the excellent air conditioning. Having two bathrooms in the apartment was a real plus as it made getting ready with two teenagers a breeze. The shower and sunken tub in the master are not to be missed! The neighborhood was quiet, with restaurants and other amenities nearby. Antonella was a wonderful host. She was friendly, organized and communicative. We have recommended the apartment to friends and will definitely stay there when we return to Rome. It's a wonderful place to stay and we wish we could give it more than five stars!

Lovely apartment in the heart of Rome

  • 4 of 5

This was a great stay for my family. Everything is as described and portrayed in the pictures. Master bed room is awesome with it's own bathroom. My sons enjoyed sleeping in the loft, but watch you head as the ceiling is low. Everything we needed was in the kitchen. The apartment is ground level and the courtyard is clean. Walking distance to the metro and grocerie stores and restaurants. Left off 1 star because the 2 chairs and sofa in the living were a bit worn out but otherwise this place is fabulous! We would gladly stay again and I highly recommend this property!

Far Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Sergio & Antonella's apartment was amazing. It was set up and furnished to make anyone feel right at home. Location is perfect with great restaurants nearby, plenty of taxis a block or two away and a healthy walk to several tourist destinations. I highly recommend booking this apartment for your next trip to Rome.

Sergio & Antonella, thank you to taking such great care of my family and helping to make our trip so memorable!

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.
