ONLY 2 KM FROM HISTORIC CENTRE, Home Sweet Home is an apartment (130m2 or1399 FT2) recently renovated, furnished with ITALIAN STYLISH FURNITURE. It can accommodate comfortably up to 14 PEOPLE in 4 ROOMS protected by doors to ensure you all the privacy you need. (See below for more info)

50 MT BUS STOPS permit you to reach historical centre very comfortably, quickly and very easily (Trastevere only 2km - direct tram line in 10 minutes; St.Peter’s Basilica (direct bus line -5km in 20 minutes) and the heart of historical centre (Piazza Venezia 6km direct tram line in 20 minutes). We are fortunate to have about 800 meters away (or 2 bus stops), the tram line 8 (see below more details) so we arrive where we want very quickly without traffic problems

TOWELS AND BED LINEN ARE PROVIDED FOR FREE

SO THERE AREN’T OTHER COST FOR THE APARTMENT.

Here below some more information:

The apartment:

It’s very large (130mq,1399 FT2 ) and it offers a comfortably ACCOMMODATION until 14 people. Apartment layout was thought to ensure privacy to each occupant of each room.

You can find 3 really LARGE BEDROOMS (RED Room, ORANGE Room, YELLOW Room) + a LIVING ROOM (who, if you need, offers you the same privacy than a bedroom, closing its door) , 3 TERRACES (one large and sunny with table and chairs, very pleasant)., 2 FULL BATHROOMS (2 TUBES with SHOWERS ) and a FULL EQUIPPED and SEPARATED KITCHEN, large and independent from the other rooms. If someone wants to prepare a coffee, he can do it without disturbing those who stay in the living room or in the bedrooms. All rooms are protected by doors (included living room). In the living room there is a large table for 14 people, a sofa bed and a 24” TV.

As far as possible, we try to realize your wishes about type and arrangement of beds.

You have also a WASHING MACHINE in the kitchen for your EXCLUSIVE and FREE USE.

You have always HOT WATER YOU NEED, EVEN IF YOU ARE MANY PEOPLE. No waiting for take a shower.

Here some optional extra service to enjoy your stay:

If you arrive by car, you can park on the street in front of our building, PARKING IS FREE. But, if you want, we have a parking area in our private road (50 meters). There are no parking controlled or reserved spaces but entrance is regulated by remote control. (Ask for information).

We live in a quiet and peaceful area but if you want to park your car in A COVERED AND CONTROLLED PARKING, you can find it 100 meters from the apartment. The price is 15 euro for 24 hours.

If you have a baby with you (from 0 to 2 years old) we have a 'BABY KIT' furnished with linens and all that must be and a high chair 'pappa and siesta.' All these accessories are reserved and calibrated exclusively for children 0-2 age. (Ask for info)

When you chose to spend your holiday in our apartment you can benefit from 3 SWIMMING POOLS: 1 outdoor (obviously in the warm season- normally starting from end of May, like all outdoor pools in Rome) and 2 indoor swimming pools (adults and children). They are located at 50 meters. As you can see from our web site photos, our polls aren’t small pools. We can access to them at a special and much reduced price – this year (only for us) it’s 5 euro / person / day. (It'll be possible a little increase in 2016 (2 or at least 3 euro) because it's many time that price is the same for us. IMPORTANT: Everything is included in this price: umbrella and chairs, lounge chairs, tables, showers and continuously monitor the safety and cleanliness of the pools and spaces adjacent; IN ADD: you can entry and return several times in the same day without added costs. ANOTHER FACILITY: Depending on your needs, if you are many people, for family or if there are little children, or you think to utilize pools several times, it's possible to ask for a discounted lump price.

In summer outside pool is always open, non-stop from morning to evening. In winter Indoor pools are opened for many hours in the day and in the evening too. Our guests can enjoy pools all year around.

We have a Wifi connection in the apartment. It’s a high speed connection and it works 24 hours, always high speed and you don’t have limits about its use (you can play game, look television, utilize Skype or make…what you want!). The connection in the apartment is not for unit, so you can connect simultaneously all computer, tablet, telephones you need…with a very cheap price. Ask for information.

If you arrive by plane, we have our SHUTTLE SERVICE. Our driver waits for you and your flight (it’s a personalized service) at the airport and brings you comfortably to/from apartment with his car at a really competitive cost. He has a large car (8 place) so you can travel all together - all your baggage are included in the price - safety seat for children on request. For more than 8 people, we can reserve 2 cars. If you are interest, please let me know your flight arrival time and I ask for your price.

The check in is the day of you arrival, from16h to 19h. This is the rules, but I always try, as far as possible, to find a solution for my guests. It’s possible, previous agree, a check in, out of schedule. (If you are interest, ask for info and costs) However if you arrive before scheduled check-in, if you like, you can leave your luggage for free in the apartment, upon arrival with our shuttle, so you can immediately start enjoying your vacation. We are close to shops, bars, pizzeria, restaurants and, of course, supermarkets (opened also 24h) You will return for check in at 16,00.

If I can and your apartment is ready for you, I hand it over, with pleasure, also before check in time. (Obviously previously agreeing)

Check out is from 8,30 to 10 on your departure day. (Even here, if I have no guests arriving in the afternoon, I offer you, with pleasure, a greater flexibility on check out time (here also, we need to concord it before)

Our location

We are in a typically residential street (green and silent), but at 50 meters away from us there is Colli Portuensi Avenue, full of elegant shops, pizzeria, restaurants, bars, supermarkets, excellent pastry shops for the most gluttonous (a ice cream shops “famous” in all town), and even a covered market for testing typical Italian foods. (Everything is in a walking distance).

Just 150 meters, you can find many playground areas for children and at 1km Villa Doria Pamphili, one of the most large and beautiful parks in Rome, (if you like jogging, to have a picnic or relax in spacious green areas, surrounded by some ancient statues or fountains). And after… only 2 km you are at Trastevere, one of the most beautiful and characteristic districts of the ancient city.

Rome is also close to the sea (we mostly because we are situated in the south-west side of the city). You can arrive in 20 minutes to Fiumicino airport and in 30 minutes at the sea (Ostia and the Natural Reserve of Castel Porziano or Fiumicino with his dunes of sand). This is possible because our district has a optimal shortcut to Roma-Fiumicino motorway, and to Grande Raccordo Anulare. If you like you can easily reach the same places too by bus or train. '

PUBLIC TRANSPORTS

We have many bus stops near our home. 50 meters stop bus of line 870 brings you to terminal tram line 8 and directly to St. Peter's Basilica (Via della conciliazione). In Via Colli portuensi (200mt) we have 3 bus lines 31,33and180, that take you, with 3 stops, to line 8 tramway terminal, with a little more, to subway station (Valle Aurelia stop) and in 15 stops, without changes, to St. Peter's Basilica and Musei Vaticani ( at“Cipro”stop bus you also find Metro A “Cipro” Station-)

We are really fortunate to have about 800 meters away, the tram line 8, which is a tramway with a reserved surface road. As the metro, but you travel on surface (much more interesting for a tourist). In short, we arrive where we want very quickly (and comfortably because you travel from bus terminal to bus terminal. There is always a seat for you and your children.). Tram 8 brings you directly in 10 minutes (2 km) to Trastevere (railway station, connected to Termini) and until Piazza Venezia e Via dei Fori Imperiali (25 minuts), in the middle of Historical centre, close to Coliseum.

At the stop bus line 8 you’ll also find the line 088 who brings you directly to Hydromania, the most great water park in the town.

There are public transports (pulmans or trains too) that bring you to Termini station from Fiumicino or Ciampino airports so you can use them, if you like, to arrive to our apartment, but many guests prefer our shuttle service (and the difference in price is not so important). Anyway people who spent their holiday in our apartment always “forget” their car. You don’t need it. We are very well connected so, it’s more simple, quickly and comfortable visiting Rome, starting from our apartment by tram and bus than via car.

A LITTLE GIFT FOR YOU:

If you like, when you will be here, it'll be a pleasure for me to give you information about restaurants, typical places, shops, children's areas around us and all the information that only those who live in Rome can know and you cannot find in a tourist guide. I saw that this is really appreciated to my guests. You cannot ever fell a “foreigner” in my house and you will always know where to go to find what you need and you like to better enjoy your holiday.

But you can also find more details in our guest’s feedbacks. Their words (and, we hope, your words) are our best publicity!

I try to make my best to answer you in 24 hours.

.I'm waiting for you! Welcome

About Grazia

Buongiorno.

I am an architect and I lived and worked in Italy and abroad and this apartment has been my family's home for a while.. When I receive a new guest, I ask myself a question: what would I like to know and what would I like to find when I go on holiday abroad? I try to offer to my guests the answers to these questions. So you will find here not only beautiful apartments where to sleep, but also many services (from pools to shuttle from/to airports etc) and above all lots of local informations and how special and unique you can find around us and that only people who lives here can suggest you. So you can experience an unforgettable and relaxing vacation and even if you are in another country, you can feel at ease like at home.

Family holiday in Rome

  • 5 of 5

We were two families with toddlers staying for one week. The flat is a bit basic, but very charming and have everything you need for a quality holiday. The local area is nice and has a lot to offer. Grazia, the land lady, will give you some great recommendations and will do her best for you to have a wonderful stay. Easy access to Central Rome and The Vatican makes this a highly recommended flat for enjoying Rome.

Perfectto!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located in a residential area which is perfect to get away from the hustle and bustle. That said, it is also cheap and close enough to easily travel into the centre of Rome by tram. The apartment easily fitted our party of 6 with more than enough space. It was very clean upon arrival.

Grazia, the landlady, was fantastic and treated us like family. Before we left for the Rome she immediately answered any questions we had. On the first day she visited to give us a warm welcome and told us more about the area; from the best place you can get ice cream to location of the national park for picnics. Grazia has an extremely kind and bubbly personality and after all her suggestions we were even more excited to go visit Rome! She gave us her personal mobile number in case we had any more questions. When we had any issues she was came over that day to fix it and was happy to answer queries straight away.

Thank you so much Grazia!

Pleasant stay in lovely flat and nice location

  • 5 of 5

Very nice flat, comfortable and spacious, even for two families sharing for a week. The flat had all the facilities we needed, and the owners were very friendly and helpful. We felt very much at home from the moment we arrived. Two bathrooms made it easy for eight people to get ready in the morning for a day of sightseeing in beautiful Rome. The flat is located in a nice, clean, quiet area. There are restaurants, cafés and shops within walking distance, so you can have breakfast locally before you head into the city centre, and similarly, you can choose to end the day having dinner in one of the local restaurants. Unless you're a keen walker, you need to rely on public transport to get into the city centre. The buses run regularly from early mornng to late at night. Even though you can take the bus all the way into the city centre, we preferred to get off after a few stops and take the tram to Piazza Venezia. Walking from the flat to the tram is doable; it takes 15-20 minutes (longer for young children). It's a nice walk on a pleasant day. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to go back.

Lovely owner, huge apartment, nice local area

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with 6 girlfriends for a long weekend in Rome - we all loved the apartment! Grazia (the lovely owner) met us at the apartment and explained all about the local public transport, supermarkets, the good local restaurants etc.

The apartment was clean and a great size for 7 people, everyone could be together and chat or have their own space. The two bathrooms were enough for our group.

The balcony was lovely to sit out in the evening and relax (with wine of course!) after a busy day sightseeing. I really enjoyed being in this area, it was full of locals taking their kids to school and going about their daily business. You're not in the centre of Rome - but that's what I liked.

It felt very secure and safe (front gate, front apartment door and then the front door)

I (and my friends) would all recommend this property.

  • 5 of 5

"I spent an interesting and successful holiday this summer in Signora V.''s flat with my wife, our 4 children and their 2 friends. We were nearly all adults, yet the flat accommodated us all very comfortably as there are 3 large, airy bedrooms. There is a washing machine and airer provided, so any clothes can be washed and dried on any of the 3 balconies. The flat is ideally situated near the centre of Rome which is easily accessed by the bus (31 or 33) or tram. A ticket costing 1.50 euros and valid for 100 minutes offers ample time to reach your destination. The nearby swimming pool is also ideal and very relaxing. Both Signora V. and Franco (the owner of the pools) are very friendly and discreet. There are excellent shops within walking distance of the flat and some great bars and restaurants. One such bar in Via di Monteverde offers a selection of Italian ''real'' ales which will appeal to the palate of British men. This bar is also open until 5.00am to which our children can testify! There are many ice cream parlours nearby too. We visited Rome many times during our 2 week stay and saw all the most interesting sites. I now feel that I know this city quite well and the other members of our party really enjoyed their visit as well."

There are 4 bus stops to 50 meters from our apartment (line 31 brings you in 12stops to Vatican Museums and St. Peter Cathedral). Luckly we have at 800 meters (reachable also by 2 bus stops of line 31), the line 8, tramway with route reserved which takes in 10 minutes to Trastevere and to the center of Rome (Piazza Venezia).

We are at the same distance (25km) from Fiumicino and Ciampino airports. (Links are also guaranteed by bus and metro). If you want we can offer you a shuttle service customized at competitive prices to / from airports or stations. We are at your disposal for any your particular request. we will try to do our best to respond to you within 24 hours.

We are in a green hill in the heart of Rome, well connected and adjacent to the historic center. That's why Monteverde is considered one of the most elegant and sophisticated residential neighborhoods of the city.We are in a typically residential street (green and silent), but at 50 meters from us there is Colli Portuensi Avenue, full of elegant shops, restaurants, bars, supermarkets and even a covered market with typical Italian products. Just 100 meters, a children's play area and 1km Villa Doria Pamphili, one of the most beautiful parks in Rome, if you like jogging, to have a picnick or relax in spacious green areas, surrounded by some ancient statues or fountains. And after… only 2 km you are at Trastevere, one of the most beautiful and characteristic districts of the ancient city.

Rome is also near to the sea (we mostly because we are situated to the south-west of the city). You can arrive in 20 minutes at Fiumicino airport and in 30 at the sea of Ostia and at the Natural Reserve of Castel Porziano or Fiumicino. This is possible because our neightbour has a optimal shortcut to Roma-Fiumicino motorway, and Grande Raccordo Anulare. You can easily reach the same places by bus or train.
