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. Fernando & Angela.

Roma, July 2019
Upon arrival at the airport we were greeted by a driver our host Fernando had organized. At the property Fernando himself was at the front door welcoming us and showing us the apartment.
This apartment is exactly as advertised: super clean, spacious and functional. A big plus is the location so close to the Metro which runs every few minutes and took us to wherever we wanted to go in a very short time. There are plenty of shops and eateries close by as well.
We can recommend this property without hesitation.
Thank you, Fernando and family!

Si vous chercher un endroit douillet, propre situé à proximité du métro , de restaurants, de café,d’épiceries dans un quartier tranquille et sécuritaire n’hésitez pas une seconde pour louer cet appartement.
De plus je tiens à souligner la rapidité avec laquelle Fernando répondait à nos demandes d’informations lors de nos recherches et de l’accueil sympathique lors de notre arrivée. Il a pris le temps nécessaire pour nous expliquer comment ce déplacer dans Rome les principaux attraits de celle-ci également.

Merci pour votre formidable appréciation.
Angela et Fernando Rocchetti
We stayed at Angela and Fernando’s apartment for 4 nights during our recent stay in Rome. The apartment was perfect and spacious for a family of 6 adults. The apartment has all the amenities required to make you feel right at home. The apartment is just minutes away from a Metro station which made it very easy to get around Rome. Fernando arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport on the day of arrival and for a driver to drive us back on the day of departure. No car rental is required. The surrounding neighbourhood is very nice. Easy access to supermarkets, restaurants, pastry shops etc... Overall we had a wonderful stay, and would definitely stay here again when we return to Rome. Grazie per tutto!! Mirella (Montreal, Canada)

Terrific Location-Attentive Owner
Our First trip to Rome and we couldn't be happier with the apartment. It was close to Metro for easy access to downtown Rome and all the sights, yet far removed from all the noise and crowds. Fernando arranged for a pick up for us at the airport and allowed us to check in early as we had an early arrival from the States.
The apartment was a very clean and exactly what we expected from the website pictures.
We liked the organic market a few blocks from the apartment.
Would definitely stay here again

Lovely apartment. Great location. Very helpful owner. I
Do not hesitate to book this property!
This lovely apartment was our home away from home for our first trip to Rome. Located in an authentic Roman neighborhood, everything you need is a short walk from the apartment. The close proximity to the metro station cannot be overstated. Apartment is as pictured and very clean. Fernando met us at the apartment and gave very useful information about getting around town. We had a medical issue during our stay, and Fernando and his family immediately helped us find a pharmacy open on New Years Day. Famiglia Rochetti will do everything they can to make sure you enjoy your stay. We would love to stay here again on our next trip to Rome.
