About the neighborhood.
Location is SW of Rome, halfway in the path-City Airport (Fiumicino), it is a residential area, quiet and green, although the apartment is 5 minutes (walking) from Via del Trullo, a main road where you can find small shops, a nice typical local market with everything you need (grocery, butcher, fishfood and more), a discount supermarket, a supermarket 'normal' and (take a bus), a small shopping center . If you want a big shopping center you will have to take the city train, but I doubt that this will be interesting for you ... :-)
Getting around in Rome as Via Temple Dia?
Even if it reaches almost every little corner of the city, the surface transportation in Rome is very complex and, at times it may be a bit 'slow, so it is advisable to use the bus to get to the nearest metro (underground) or the railway station city train.

Stayed 9 people (5 adults – 4 children) in Cheap&Chic for N.Y. Holiday of 2016 (27th Dec–4th Jan). Having decided for an apartment, was important:
- Multiple rooms
- At least two WC.. avoid morning crowds
- Good heating … freezing is no holiday
- Safe location
- Good & Free wifi
Arranging for so many people, was anxious to have everything secure and well organized. My nightmare was arriving late in Rome and have no place to stay because the owner made double booking or did not show up or have been victim of internet fraud.
The Cheap&Chic (although I do not like this name) met most of our requirements and the honesty of the description & subsequent contact with the owner made me feel “SAFE”.
Checked everything, walked the Tempio di Dia via Google Street view, saw the house from every corner, investigated the neighborhood etc etc. Even after booking, Pietro was always there to help with any concern. I was never so much relaxed on a trip abroad as on this case.
On first view, the house was a pleasant surprise (as one said “much better than pictures”)..
- heating was very fast and good (the building is populated as such not cold),
- lots of space for all of us, very cozy living room that we enjoyed very much lazing around.
- COMPLETE, the house is a “Real Homeaway”. You get impression as the last tenants escaped to a new life living all behind. Also funny and relaxing finding notes everywhere … even how not being locked out the door.
- KITCHEN … originally thought as useless but very handy after the first restaurant bills. Such a crowd could not be fed well in any other way.
- not to forget welcoming decorations and amenities waiting us on first opening the door.
- Area was typical Italian workers living, everything was there (firstname.lastname@example.org€ seated), no strange faces, never felt risking coming back with last bus. Next to woods area away from noise very near to multiple transport and near to city (walkable).
On the negatives were:
- Took some training to adjust the hot water while douching.
- Some furnishings are basic and aged but is overcome by the completeness and functionality as described, good and comfortable beds and couches all very clean warm and tidy.
Fully recommended for groups of 4 or over, families etc, or alternate travel i.e. Rome living like Italians. No air-condition but suppose due to open woods area, windows and balconies all around and nice patio in front would be OK for Summer.
Siamo stati ospiti del sig. Stefano per il week end 1-3 novembre 2013 insieme ai nostri bambni. L'appartamento è abbastanza funzionale offrendo tutti i servizi necessari per una buona vacanza in relax a Roma. Consigliamo questo appartamento a tutte le famiglie con bambini; le camere da letto non mancano e l'ampio salone consente di vivere al meglio i momenti trascorsi in casa. Approfittando di una bella e calda giornata autunnale, abbiamo potuto sfruttare il patio per un piacevole pranzo all'aperto.
Concludiamo sottolineando la gentilezza, la cortesia e la disponibilità del sig. Stefano che fino ad ora non abbiamo mai riscontrato nei proprietari degli altri alloggi dove abbiamo soggiorato.
Se dovessimo ritornare a Roma sicuramente ricontatteremmo il sig. Stefano al quale rivolgiamo il nostro più cordiale saluto.

The apartment 'located outside the chaos of the central areas, in a quiet residential area, but well connected to the center (25min, bus and metro), Eur (10min, bus), in Trastevere and the Vatican (20min, bus + metro or city train) to the Termini station (30 min, bus and metro) and the Fiumicino airport (25 min, Railway).
And 'in the south west of Rome, halfway between the center and Fiumicino Airport, in a residential area, green and clean, although it is a 5-minute walk from Via del Trullo, the main street where there are shops and shops, a local market full, a discount supermarket, a supermarket 'normal' and even a small shopping center (take the bus). Taking the City Rail you can 'reach a huge mall, but I doubt that is of interest to tourists ... :-)
Getting around in Rome from the apartment?
Although the surface transport in Rome reach almost every corner of the city, the transport situation and 'very complex and can' be sometimes very slow, so it 'advisable to use the bus just to get to the underground (Metro) or City Rail. Obviously if there are no points close Metro buses are still a good option although it is to be calculated once more 'long.
