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.

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

Gorgeous, safe and centrally located in Rome.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 3 days as a family of 5. It’s a beautifully building and the exposed walls add charm to the condo. We truly enjoyed all the comforts of the apartment. The kitchen is nicely updated and the en-suite tub was fantastic. The condo is centrally located in a nice area of Rome and walking distance to the subway. We highly recommend this condo.

Beautiful Apt. Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Rome. The apt. was open, welcoming and clean (better than pictured). Prior to our arrival we received an informative packet that was useful during our stay. We booked a tour of Rome once we arrived which was perfect because Antonella met us at our convenience after the tour and the apt architecture and interior design was bellissimo. The location is perfect nestled in a quite courtyard. However, we were walking distant to great dining, food markets, shopping, the metro and terminal station. We stayed for seven days and dined daily at the conveniently located eateries, (Ristorante Re Basilico, pastry place open until 6am, sandwich shop at the corner, etc...). Honestly, we did not use the kitchen because great eatery as well as gelato, desserts, and caffe were located steps from the apt. Sergio conveniently met us prior to departure. Thank you Sergio and Antonella for a memorable experience!

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment Oct 6 2016 for three nights.

The apartment is just as the photos show.

Antonella and Sergio were there to meet us when we arrived and showed us everything about the apartment.

The apartment is within walking distance of most of the tourists must sees. We took a taxi to the Vatican as we had an early morning tour. There are metros, supermarkets and restaurants all within easy walking distance.

The apartment had everything we needed and more.

We found it to be very quiet at night.

If returning to Rome I would definitely stay again.

Style and comfort...

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples in our 50s staying in Rome for three nights. I stumbled across this flat as the first one we rented we were told that the condo association is no longer renting. A great find. Just as the pictures showed. Very deco interior. Close to everything. I don't think we paid more than 12 euro to get to anything. The upstairs bedroom does have a bit of a low ceiling but you get used to it. Air was fine. All the amenities you could need. A nice quiet courtyard when you return from your days events. Antonella and Sergio had everything laid out as far as getting around. You could use public transport if you wish but we chose cabs while we were there. We finally were able to figure out how to get English on the TV but that was no big deal. Nice restaurants just outside the flat on the street. Very quiet and comfortable. Thanks to Antonella and Sergio for a great stay. I wish we were still there.

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.
