Quiet, private, comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Carla and Franco have done everything you could think of and more to make this a great little place to stay. So kind and helpful. We were sorry to leave, and if we come back to Rome it will be to here. The garden is lovely, and the general area very nice and quiet, (with Trastevere jumping just half a mile down the road.) We would recommend it without hesitation.

"Home Away from Home" is a hidden gem in the heart of Rome

  • 5 of 5

Our 5 days in magnificent Rome was made extra special by the kindness and hospitality of our hosts, Franco and Carla. The chalet was perfectly located within easy walking distances to the market at Campo de' Fiori, the Forum, the Colosseum, Pantheon and the Vatican and contained everything we needed for a cozy, comfortable stay, surrounded by beautiful gardens and quiet patio. It was a welcome retreat after a long day of exploring and immediately felt like home to us, especially being welcomed back with the wagging tails of well behaved Tosca and India. The extra amenities provided by Franco and Carla, such as provisions in the fridge and homemade treats were greatly appreciated. They took the time to welcome us, provide detailed information on where we were, the best ways to get to places, recommended grocers, shops, restaurants, etc. They also cheerfully arranged an airport transfer for us at the end of our stay. Thank you, Alessio. We loved our time in Rome and would highly recommend the chalet to anyone looking for a warm and friendly place to stay. Definitely a 5+ star experience!

We had a lovely stay in this Chalet, Franco and Carla were very welcoming, and the garden beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Rome, the location of the chalet was ideal, we were able to walk to the Colleseum and The Vatican and also into the main square. The hosts Franco and Carla were very helpful in explaining their hints for visiting the city and we loved the chalet and our stay very much! Thank you!

Serenity in Rome!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful and relaxing week in the garden villa of Franco and Carla! Everything was in perfect order -- beginning with our correspondence even before arrival and our welcome gifts (wine, travel information, restaurant advice) -- and including Franco and Carlo's generous hospitality, their attention to beautiful details in outfitting the villa and the garden for guests, and an enthusiastic love of Rome and its environs. We regret only that we could not stay in their villa during our entire stay in Rome (since it was booked for some of our dates)! Mille grazie per una bella esperienza!

Gorgeous, peaceful chalet walking distance from Travastere!

  • 5 of 5

Franco and Carla are superb!!! They offered to pick us up at the train station, even though we weren't able to make it to the station closest to them as they had hoped. When our train was delayed by an hour and a half, they stayed at the station and waited for us regardless, even though it was late at night and Franco had to work early. They greeted us so warmly and took us to see a couple beautiful views of the city on the way home! They have a huge binder full of recommendations, maps, and helpful info for the city as well. The chalet was clean, spacious, and stocked with coffee, home made limoncino, and light treats. all in all, it was a delightful stay and I would recommend to any of my friends and family!

Delightful chalet

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing place to stay away from the hustle & bustle of Romes tourist areas whilst still within easy reach of the city this is for you. The chalet is compact but comfortable and comes complete with everything you will need including a lovely garden. We were welcomed by Franco & Carla who instantly made us feel at home and gave us plenty of information as well as personal recommendations on places to see, things to do and where to eat. We decided to spend the days exploring Rome and stay in the local Trastevere area in the evenings. We learned that Trastevere is considered the area where the true Romans live and there are many lovely restaurants to be discovered. We would certainly recommend this delightful accommodation.
