Why Fernando Rocchetti chose San Giovanni

" Roma-INCANTATA apartment was calm, well decorated and supplied with everything one could wish for. The beds are comfortable and the shower is large enough for two! The flat is in a very quiet side street. It is a couple of minutes walk to the metro, buses and to the Cafarella Park that leads into the Appia Antica park, so a good place for running walking and cycling and wonderful archaeology. There are good food shops including a bakery nearby and Fernando recommended a couple of restaurants. We would recommend Roma-INCANTATA apartment and will definitely stay here if we come back to Rome "

Above is a typical review on our apartment.

We have a lot of reviews, all fully positive (5 stars).

We are confident that you will be satisfied.

Great host, Amazing apartment

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about the owners. What true joy it was to finally have meet them. Communication was perfect from the beginning to the end. The apartment was pristine!!! Clean, spacious, and prime location. The host have a map of the metro in the apartment to help you get around. They explained what to visit and when as well as what was around that could be of use for us. Market was down the street. Restaurants close by. The metro was a 5 minute walk away. EVERYONE WAS SUPER FRIENDLY!! no need for hotels when you can book on home away for apartments such as this one. I will definitely be returning!!!

Perfect place to start our honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

Fernando and his family were the perfect hosts and gave us a ton of information as soon as we got there. This was the first of 4 apartments my husband and I rented across Italy for our honeymoon and was by far the best. Fernando suggested some really fantastic restaurants - the best of which is literally around the corner. He gave us a bottle of wine to celebrate our honeymoon too, which was really thoughtful. While this apartment is not located in the city center, it is very close to a Metro stop which made it really easy to get around. Would definitely recommend staying here to others!

5 Star Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the apartment! It was perfect for our family! Fernando made arrangements for a driver to pick us up at the airport which made our trip into the city so smooth. He was always quick to respond to emails. We had inquired if the apartment was supplied with laundry detergent and when we arrived, he had purchased some for us. Upon arrival, he had a bottle of wine for us to enjoy! Thank you so much, Fernando!

This was our first time to use Home Away and the experience was great!

When we arrived at the apartment, his daughter and friend met us and showed us everything we needed to know regarding the apartment. They spent time explaining the metro system and letting us know about the neighborhood. Their hospitality was definitely 5 star! As in the description, the apartment is a short walk to the subway station. Even though we were in a neighborhood, the apartment was extremely quiet. We would highly recommend a stay at this apartment.

Perfectly located!

  • 5 of 5

For a reasonable cost, Fernando's son in law, Andrea picked us up at the airport and then oriented us to the neighborhood and the apartment. The metro was wonderful for getting around & a week pass for bus, metro & tram was 24 Euros for one week. Perfect! We used it all everyday. The info, maps & travel guides at the apartment were also very helpful. The neighborhood was quiet at night for sleeping but lively & vibrant during the day. A true local neighborhood.

Owner's Response: Grazie mille! Yes, Appio Latino is a true neighborhood and the apartment is very clean, well soundproofed, spacious, comfortable, well equipped in every room. Close to the metro (Line A) and major bus lines, ideally situated for visits and for the impregnation in Roman life. Supermarket, shops and several nice restaurants nearby. Thank you again for your wonderful review. Angela & Fernando Rocchetti

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in 3 apartments during our 10 day trip to Italy. This one was the best by far in every way. The location was great for public transit. Fernando and Chiara exceeded my expectations and were wonderful hosts. We needed an early morning ride and they were able to help. On top of all that, the apartment is so lovely.
