Super stylish design apartment with lovely garden.
Totally refurbished, all brand new, great care.
Fits 5: 2 d. bedrooms+private bathrooms.
A/C, free WI-FI. Beautiful central area quiet and green rich in shops 10 mins from city center
I'm an interior designer and I just totally restyled my apartment in what I call a "scandinafrican style with a retro touch".
It is brand new and has a lovely garden.
Hosts 5 guests in 2 double bedrooms and 1 single sofa bed in the living room.
I've taken special care to have a stylish yet warm and welcoming space by mixing design classic pieces, high quality materials, custom made lightings and furnishing as well as family memories and photos from my travels and urban explorations in Rome.
The apartment consists in two double bedrooms, the green and the avio one, each with private bathroom - one with bathtub, the other with shower; a beautiful living room with dining area, an open fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, a studio area and a unique garden with lounge, dining area, solarium and laundry area with washing machine.
It's air conditioned, has a free wi-fi connection, private hot water and heating system, lcd TV, radio, cd, dvd and mp3 player.
The kitchen is fully equipped: toaster, blender, kettle, american and espresso coffee machines, dishwasher.
The area is safe and quiet and the building is guarded by a daytime concierge.
The garden is private, at exclusive use of my guests. It's so relaxing dining outside and resting after a day in the traffic and crowd of the historical city center!
The internet WI-FI connection is full and for free.
My little guests will have at their disposal with no overprice a little bed, stroller, high chair and proper tableware. As a mum I know how important it is!
Interaction with Guests
My guests have all my support since they book my apartment: I'm always happy to help out and fast in answering calls, texts and emails.
It's my pleasure to offer to all my guests a special welcome gift basket with local delicious foods and a neighborhood orientation tour to show all the good spots, shops and public transport stops of the area.
I love to give tips and suggestions for living this beautiful city in a special way!
My apartment is located in Parioli, very well known in Rome as a classy neighborhood, very quiet and green. It faces a small park, perfect for walking dogs or runnunig, and is very close to Villa Ada and Villa Borghese, two amazing parks.
The Parioli area offers a wide range of attractions. It's a real paradise for foodies: very good and high class restaurants and bars, wine shops, regional food shops and supermarkets. Pretty boutiques, parks, the zoo and stunning museums: antiquities public galleries such as Galleria Borghese and Museo Etrusco di Valle Giulia, modern art like the Galleria Nazionale di Arte Moderna, contemporary art such as Zaha Hadid's Maxxi and Odile Decq's Macro.
For music lovers: Renzo Piano's Auditorium and summer world music in Villa Ada.
For Architecture fans: the unique deco Coppedè quarter.
For the little ones: the Zoo, Explora kids' museum, the playgrounds in the parks and the little train in Villa Borghese.
Grand Tour apartment is located in a central area, very well connected via public transportation to the historical city center.
Bus, trams and metro stops are all within 10 minutes walking:
- the historical heart of the city is just 3 metro stops away (Campi Sportivi urban train stop)
- by tram (Liegi/Ungheria stop) it's nice to see the city while going to Vatican, Coliseum, Maxxi museum, Porta Portese sunday flea market, nightlife districts such as San Lorenzo and Pigneto and many many more
- the bus no. 360 (end of the line in Muse) connects to Termini main train station and, from there, to Fiumicino and Ciampino airports
Other Things to Note
Complete baby gear on request: little bed, stroller, high chair, proper tableware, blender - with no extra fee!
Also with no overprice I'll be happy to organize the transfers from and to the airport by booking a private car. It'll be waiting for my guests and take them straight home. Safe and cheap!
My guests are kindly asked to please take care of the apartment and the furnishing just like I do.
To please respect the plants in the garden, especially if babies or pets are in.
To please consider that other people are living in the building, when staying in the garden.
Check-outs are done before 10:00 and check-ins after 14:00, in general. But my guests schedules will be accomplished whenever it's possible!
For arrivals later than 20:30 a late check-in fee is provided amounting to € 30.
Smoking is only permitted in the garden.
From Dec 20, 2015 - Jan 06, 2016 the minimum stay is 10 nights.
Fue un placer alojarnos en lo de Giulia! Estuvo atenta a cada detalle, desde asesorarnos sobre las distintas posibilidades para llegar desde el aeropuerto, hasta explicarnos con mucho detenimiento el funcionamiento de la casa.
Nos recibió con algo fresco y rico y nos dejó esas cosas que uno necesita para cocinar ( aceite, sal, cafe).
Su casa es muy cómoda y agradable. El barrio es un sueño! Podíamos respirar aire puro y escuchar los pajaritos, al volver de un día agobiante de calor.
Otro gesto de mucha delicadeza es toda la información que nos explicó y dejó disponible, sobre lugares necesarios: dónde comprar los tickets de colectivos, que colectivos tomar, supermercados mas cercanos, hasta heladerías!
Giulia, muchas gracias por hacer nuestra estadía en Roma, tanto mas agradable!
Giulia is a fantastic host and her place is great! We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and the private garden, not to mention the viewpoint nearby. Thanks to Giulia's different maps and tips that she shared with us, we easily found our way to the best local supermarkets, the best restaurants, the best pizza, the most reliable taxi company etc.
Even during our stay we felt that we could contact Giulia anytime with questions and wishes (though we didn't have any, because Giulia already had given us every important informations and good to know facts.) We felt welcome and taken care of.
We strongly recommend Giulias place.
We had a great time at Giulia's flat in Parioli. It's a great neighbourhood of everyday people with a few consulates thrown into the mix.
The flat itself is very comfortable for up to 4 people + a baby in an available crib. Giulia recently renovated the flat with a mid-century modern vibe. You'll find everything you need in the suite including all kitchen necessities, dishwasher, washing machine, and A/C
It was amazing. A lovely apartment, very close to the city, but just far enough out to escape the hustle and bustle after a day of sightseeing (if you haven't been to Rome, it crawls with tourists everyday).
Giulia has several useful maps on the wall, including local places to eat, but food etc. Made navigating and living very easy.
Giulia made our stay wonderful.
Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Giulia. (Une gentille attention nous attendait pour fêter un anniversaire) En plus, Giulia reste disponible tout le temps du sejour..
L'appartement est très agréable et dispose d'une terrasse qui doit être très appréciable l'été ( malheureusement nous n'avons pas pu en profiter, le soleil n'étant pas de la partie). A conseiller pour passer quelques jours à Rome Sans hésiter !!
Giulia è stata gentilissima e molto disponibile con noi. La sua assistenza è stata perfetta. La casa è molto carina, pulita e accessoriata di tutto. Veramente tanti complimenti!
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans l'appartement de Giulia : appartement bien équipé, très propre, dans un quartier et immeuble très calme. Les lits sont confortables. Appartement bien situé avec bus et train accessibles à pied. Très bon accueil à notre arrivée où nous avions même un panier garni pour le petit déjeuner le lendemain matin.
About the Host, Giulia
I'm Giulia Menchinelli, I'm an interior designer and mom based in Roma. I'm 44 and have a girl of 6.
My loves: my family, swimming pools, relating to people, felines, rocknroll and learning!
I love reading, too. My favourite writer is Joe R.Lansdale and my book is "Il conte di Montecristo".
My place of the heart is surely the one I haven't seen yet.. Travelling is one of the best things ever and wherever I lay my hat, that's my home!
I love so many things but above all everything made with care and attention.
The same I commit to my guests: making them feel like home is my priority.
I love welcoming and supporting them in order to let them live Rome like Romans do.
My best reward is welcoming back my guests and knowing they had a great time in my home.
We all are travellers, not tourists!
