The owners of this property dreamed of creating a home where visitors to Rome could stay with a ‘friend’. A friend with very good taste, who happens to live within skipping distance of the Trevi Fountain. Expect freshly-baked bread and pastries each morning, a fridge stocked with juices, and some great advice on where to discover local secrets.
A 17th-century house split into six apartments, it’s as centrally located as you could ask for, and provides the perfect soothing antidote to the hustle and bustle of the city. If you want to get to know Rome better (and even feel like a local), this balcony apartment is ideal.
It accommodates up to three people, in a double bed and a fold-out suitable for a child, with a large kitchen/dining space, bathroom with Turkish bath, and a small terrace overlooking the market square.
The vibe is a blend of contemporary and vintage, with a heavy dose of Sixties and Seventies. The bedroom furnishings have been custom-designed to echo the room’s trapeze-shaped floor plan. We love the details like the headboard reminiscent of Starry Night, the rich teal kitchen fittings, and the cool geometric storage units.
The building has six separate apartments of different size, but can be rented in its entirety. To view the other apartments in the building, visit: Master Apartment, Grand Apartment, Livia Apartment, Corner Apartment, and Studio Apartment.
This property is located in central Rome, which really needs no description. Suffice it to say, the Trevi fountain is a three-minute walk away. The Spanish Steps are five minutes. Via Condotti (Rome’s Rodeo Drive/Bond Street) is ten minutes away.
The owners want every guest to leave with a piece of where they’ve stayed, and make every effort to help them discover hidden nooks and crannies. Guests get to know the most intimate corners of the city, as well as, they say, ‘radical local traditions and unlikely places’. Sounds irresistible.
