Bars, supermarkets and restaurants are just around the corner and Trastevere or the city center are accessible on foot or by bus in a few minutes. In front of the house there is the beautiful park of Villa Sciarra and a few minutes walk to the entrance of the Janiculum and Villa Pamphili, the largest public park in the city. The Vatican, St. Peter's, and all the finest monuments Colsseo most important can be reached with a bus or a pleasant stroll; the famous Sunday market of Porta Portese is only 5 minutes away.

If you arrive by car it is' easy to find free parking on the street front of the house or in a private parking at 200 mt. of distance.
We organize on request private transfers to and from the airport.
We stayed at Franco and Carla's lovely little garden chalet for five nights. It is well located on a hill above Trastavere, and from which we were easily able to access a variety of restaurants, and the tram service into Piazza Venetia, an easy walk to the Trevi Fountain. It was a good twenty minute downhill walk to the Vatican too.
We made the trip to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary and Franco and Carla went out of their way to make this so special for us - met us at the airport as my husband, unfortunately, had a broken shoulder; had a specially labelled bottle of wine waiting for us and a wide variety of local nibbles, fruit and milk for our tea and coffee.
The apartment is small, but well met our needs and opens out to a delightful tranquil garden, complete with Buddha statues and lovely planting. There are wild parakeets in the nearby trees and the two resident golden labradors (you could shut the garden gate to keep them out if you're not a doggy person) spotted our curtains opening in the morning and came to call.
The bed was very comfortable and warm, and we found the hot water supply to the large shower excellent.
To us, part of the charm of visiting a country is getting to know some of the locals. We could not speak highly enough of Franco and Carla and their efforts to make sure that our Roman holiday not only met our expectations, but indeed exceeded them. We would warmly recommend this property to people valuing peace and quiet, brilliant hosts and a relaxing holiday.
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.
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 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!

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!
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!
quiet and safe area just above Trastevere
