There is a lot of returning guests !

----------------------------

The apartment of 50 square meters (538 square feet) is a typical old home of 17th century just renovated.

It is spacious, clean, comfortable and nice.

It is made for experiencing the real Rome, not an Americanized version.

It is on the first European floor above ground level (USA 2nd floor), with elevator.

It has an original beam ceiling (about 3 m. high).

Its windows overlook an interior courtyard, therefore it is very quiet,

warm in winter and cool in summer as our previous guests reviews confirm.

Sleeps (maximum 4-5):

2 people queen bed (strong and comfortable) in the bedroom;

1 single bed in the entrance;

2 single beds in the living-room

+ cot for baby

Free WIFI connection

The apartment is composed by:

- ENTRANCE with a single day bed, cupboard (please see vrbo photo 2); it opens on to the living room;

- LIVING ROOM with sofa, table & chairs, chest of drawers, TV, cot & high chair for baby, cupboard with dishes & glasses, iron, ironing board, (1-2 eventual additional beds), free WIFI (Wireless Internet) ; the French window opens on to a quiet tiny terrace in the courtyard; it is divided from the bedroom by a door (vrbo photos 1 & 3-7);

- Fully equipped KITCHENETTE with gas cooker, oven, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, cutlery, pots & pans; its window overlooks the courtyard (vrbo photo 5);

- One double BEDROOM with a queen size new confortable bed (160 x 200 cm, corresponding to 63 x 79 in) and a large wardrobe; it is divided from the living room by a door; its French window opens on to the quiet tiny terrace in the courtyard (vrbo photo 8);

- One BATHROOM with a shower and separate water closet and bidet, hairdryer; its window overlooks the courtyard (vrbo photos 9-10); although there is one bathroom, it is a separate shower/sink area and water closet, an asset when more than one person is getting ready to go out;

- Tiny terrace in the courtyard, divided from the apt. by gates (vrbo photo 11).

There is a beautiful COMMON TERRACE on the roof top of the building, accessible by elevator, where you can bring your pizza & a bottle of wine, sit and enjoy a stunning view on St. Peter's dome, Janiculum hill and Baroque Rome (vrbo photos 12-13)

About mirella

I live in the same building where is the apartment I rent, on the third floor. Therefore I can help guests for any eventuality. With me just upstairs, you will feel visiting family.

I know my town very well as my old family lives in Rome since Julius Cesar time.

I made classical studies and I have a licence in Political Sciences. I have been an official at European Union Commission in Brussels, Belgium.

Then I became a teacher specializing in language teacher training.

I teach Italian and French (as a second language) to students and language teaching methods to language teachers. I have many years of experience in this field.

I organize for my guests:

- lessons (Italian & French for foreigners, cooking, painting, art);

- guided tours in Rome and outside Rome;

- pick-up from/to airports, from/to Civitavecchia port.

I speak French & English and I love art.

mirella purchased this condo in 1984

Why mirella chose Rome

The apartment is in the same building than my home, so I can help my guests on every eventuality. You'll feel at home and you'll live in Rome as Romans do.

My family lives in this area since Julius Caesar's era. That's why I love and know very well my town.

One of the most valued features of the apartment is its location in the old district of Rome: it gets you away from the tourist crowds and right into a wonderful, Italian neighbourhood “Centro Storico”.

Address: Via Banchi Vecchi.

The apartment block is situated between the Vatican and Campo de’ Fiori, in the heart of historical and archaeological Rome.

The location of the apartment makes it easy to get to all the places of interest

(Piazza Navona, Castel S. Angelo, Colosseo… monuments and museums)

either by walking or by taking the convenient bus lines.

Well connected to all areas of Rome by public transportation (bus stops, taxi stands are so accessible).

The area is very safe.

What makes this condo unique

Just around the corner: fashionable shops and characteristic eating places, supermarkets, groceries & bakeries, pharmacy, laundrette, art galleries, antique shops, bookstores, jeweller’s,

Internet Point/Phone Center, banks with ATM machines, travel agencies, post office. A fascinating open air fresh food market is held every morning in the medieval Campo de' Fiori square nearby.

PARKING nearby www.parkingviagiulia.it

Perfectly central location in Rome, walking distance to all major attractions.

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, clean and centrally located. Mirella was the perfect hostess; meeting us on arrival and offering us a wealth of information and advice. She was easily contactable prior to and during our stay, and booked us an inexpensive taxi service to the airport upon our departure. The apartment is simple, but adequate for a short stay in Rome, with wifi, electric fans and cooking facilities. The location was excellent, and we were able to walk everywhere. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Fantastic large space in Rome near the Vatican and walking distance to all the important attractions

  • 5 of 5

Large bedroom, electric fans, kitchen with refrigerator, stove, sink, quiet, secure, clean, tv, wi-fi, and a wonderful, helpful hostess (Mirella) who booked us inexpensive car service to/from the airport. Mirella provided us with a wealth of practical information about the neighborhood and Roman sights. We would choose this property above all others.

Don't just visit Rome -- LIVE there!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks, using it as our home away from home and base for our travels with our three children, ages 21, 16 and 11. The apartment was clean, spacious and thoughtfully furnished will all of our needs in mind, down to the last detail, with a bedrom for us and beds for the kids. Mirella knows how to be the consummate host -- she was a gracious resource for help when we needed it without bothering us at all. The location -- in a historic building on a lovely quiet street just steps form all that is the exciting historic district of Rome -- was perfect for us. We had only to walk out the door for all our shopping, eating, and transporation needs to be easly accomplished. We had several groups of friends over for dinner/gelato parties on the rooftop terrace (which we had easy access to via elevator) and they agreed it was a luxurious feature that would be highly coveted by locals!

We had worried a little about the lack of AC as Rome was heating up while we were there, but the old stone building and the apartment' s position at the center of the building out of direct sunlight along with 2 enourmous fans that she supplied kept it very pleasant. In addition to the roof we had our own shaded outdoor sitting area.

I can't really say enough about how fond I am of our stay there. One more story to illustrate the kind of host she is : She helped my husband and I book a restaurant for our 25th anniversary dinner (our date night without the kids) which was fabulous. While we were gone she brought ice cream for the kids who were cooking for themselves at home that night ...so sweet and thoughtful!

As I am writing this I am already missing the place -- we would go back any time!!

Awesome Location!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful, clean apartment, and the location cannot be beat! Mirella is a very gracious hostess and very helpful with sourcing tour guides, taxis and restaurants. We are a family of 5 and were very comfortable in the apartment. We would definitely stay here again when we come to Rome next!
