The owners of this apartment took a 17th-century residence by the Trevi Fountain and converted it into six apartments. Their goal was to give guests a base from which to explore their city and get to know it better. To that end, where better to stay than at a friend’s place? Especially if your friend happens to have impeccable taste.
Of the six apartments, this is the largest. The penthouse suite, it looks out over the city and is flooded with natural light. Vintage furnishings from the Sixties and Seventies give the space a cool, laidback feel.
We like the simple, clean lines of this vacation home in Rome, Italy, the neutral color palette and the bold art. It’s an unfussy, uncluttered space that leaves guests to make it their own.
Expect great hospitality from the owners – with baked goods delivered each morning, and a fridge stocked with water, milk and juices. As well as great advice on where to go and what to do. If you ever feel like leaving the apartment, that is.
The bathroom has a Turkish bath/shower. 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: Grand Apartment, Livia Apartment, Balcony 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.
