About this listing
Beyond Piazza Cavour in a prestigious building from the 18th Century this grand apartment with three spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms, two big living rooms with a fabulous grand piano and a living kitchen, is perfectly located to walk to all the main touristic locations in the heart of Rome.
This apartment has a great history of hospitality and it can accommodate from 2 to 6/8 people traveling together.
The presence of a grand piano makes it special, and the two balconies in each living room will give guests the opportunity to observe aspects of authentic Roman life.
There are four bedrooms, 3 of which are spacious, and one which is slightly smaller. They are all facing an internal courtyard, are very quiet, thus ensuring a good night's sleep.
The kitchen is fully furnished with everything you may need if you want to eat at home.
The apartment is totally at your disposal.
You'll have a kitchen, two living rooms, television, wifi, two bathrooms with showers and the possibility of playing the grand piano if you wish (according to the rules about the hours in which that is possible)!
Interaction with Guests
We welcome our guests personally and will spend some time explaining all they need to know about the apartment. Guests can reach us on the phone or by email if they have any questions. If guests require extra cleaning, we can provide this.
Prati-Vatican is an elegant residential neighborhood. It is the area of the Justice Palace and Castel Sant'Angelo, and there are lots of restaurants and stores for shopping.
It is well connected through the subway A Line to anywhere in Rome but if you just want to walk you can be at the Spanish steps and the Vatican within 10 minutes, and The Pantheon within a 15 minutes walk and so on...
The Subway stop Lepanto, on the Linea A, is a 10 minutes walk away from the apartment.
There are also many buses from Piazza Cavour, a 3 minute walk from the Apt which will take you to The Forum, The Colosseum, and other areas of touristic interest.
We expect to find the apartment the way we give it to you, a part from the cleaning which we charge extra for. We ask not to play the piano before 10am or after 9 pm or between 2pm and 4pm (siesta time)!
Although the property and location are both astounding, all merit is negated by the intrusive nosiness of the owner Marta and her respective neighbours. The Apartment has no air conditioning and is thus very hot to be in during the day and night, especially during a hot Roman summer. Temperatures inside the apartment reached around +35 degrees Celsius. Wifi only works in the living room, which is an issue as cellphone reception seldom works within the apartment.
We were four girls spending a week in Rome for an opera masterclass and this place was just perfect for us - even with its very own piano! The apartment was spacious, spotlessly clean, and it had absolutely everything we needed. The location is great - central, but quiet. There is even a taxi stand by Piazza Cavour nearby, which was quite convenient when we needed to go to the airport in 40 degrees. Thanks for a great stay!
The Grand Piano apartment was great. The owner Marta met us on arrivals and was very welcoming and told us the best places in the local area. The apartment is in a great location and we had a great time there. Would recommend this and for this price is excellent value for money.
From the early beginning we had good contact with Marta. It was great to be in her appartment. Enough space for four adults and a child. Two bathrooms was comfortable to have. The appartment was well equiped.
It was a short walk to the Vatican, and the center of Rome. Very nice to be close to all the things we wanted to see. Everything within walking distance.
Marta is very hospitable.
The appartment is really worth visiting!
We had an amazing stay and could not have had a more positive experience in our dealings with Marta and her husband. The place was spotless and in a perfect location. The beds were comfortable and the neighborhood was quite which allowed for great sleep each night. The location of the home is perfect with easy walking to sites or easy access to cabs. Marta's communication was perfectly timed from start to finish. We really appreciated her offer to arrange for a driver to pick us up from the airport upon our arrival. Rent this home and you will not be disappointed!
This is a perfect home base to visit Rome from! The apartment is quiet, elegant, spacious, and fully equipped. We particularly enjoyed the balconies, the linen towels, the beautiful kitchen, and the fact that the piano was tuned and beautiful.
Marta is a perfect hostess. Not only did she respond quickly with anything we needed but also has a listing of restaurants and cafés she particularly likes. We tried many of them and she knows what she is talking about.
Our favorite place for lunch and dinner was
Obladi-Oblada. Thank you Marta!

About the Host, Marta
I belong to many differente places, from Rome to New York, but about 9 years ago I came to live in Umbria to embrace the country life with my husband Breon (a real newyorker!) and our two children. We transformed a farm in a Holiday Country Farm. The last 7 years have been spent receiving all sort of guests from Italy or from other countries and raising our kids, Simon and Lucia, now 13th and 10th.
I learned the rythms of the country, the umbrian special cuisine, how to make my own bread, yogurt and cheese, croissant and all kind of jams and products for my home made breakfast and my special tasting dinner.
I also collect recipes from my guests and I experiment cooking different kind of food!
i didn't abandoned my original passion, which is writing and science.
And I mantain a good relationship with Rome where I manage an apartment for touristic rentals.
If you want to know better about my hospitality you can check the reviews on tripadvisor from my many guests at Agriturismo Il Cucciolo ((website hidden))
These are some of the opinions from our guests:
"Is your dog driving you mad because he seldom obeys you? Would you like to enjoy a vacation day without having to worry about your pet's wellbeing? Are you looking for a quiet and beautiful holiday place in the nature where you can take your four legs friend with you?
If so, the Agriturismo Il Cucciolo is the place you have been searching for!
Breon will coach you and train your dog using his vast experience in the field. You will be amazed how quickly your dog will happilly do what you have always wanting him to do... Marta will spoil you with her home made bread , croissants and other goodies at breakfast and will serve you a Cappuccino you shall never forget..."
"Renovated flats on a beautiful farm in the Umbrian countryside. Rustic, yet well appointed. The flats are large and comfy, and with lots of common area for relaxing. The area is perfect for walking, hiking, biking and dining. Many beautiful day trips in the area. Lots for kids to do. The owners are very warm and take great care of the guests. Well worth a visit!"
"Cortesia e disponiblità vengono messe a disposizione degli ospiti da Marta e Breon, ognuno con le proprie competenze, sempre in maniera discreta e professionale. Marta prepara fantastiche colazioni con croissant, torte e marmellate fatte in casa, organizza cene a tema per chi desidera parteciparvi ed è sempre prodiga di consigli sulle escursioni che si possono fare nelle vicinanze. Breon è un esperto sul comportamento e l'educazione dei vostri cani sempre disponibile per consigli e per risolvere comortamenti problematici dei nostri amici a quattro zampe"
"Marta e Breon sono persone speciali che vivono in un posto speciale che amano condividere con te. Marta prepara delle colazioni buonissime con marmellate, miele, pane, dolcetti tutto fatto rigorosamente in casa con prodotti naturali. Breon è il "maestro" dei nostri amici pelosi che tutti avremmo voluto incontrare andando a scuola per la prima volta"
"Marta e Breon sono due persone speciali. La loro accoglienza è calorosa, ma sa essere discreta. Marta fa il pane e i croissant in casa! Con la pasta madre e, se glielo chiedete con un sorriso, vi insegnerà a farlo e vi offrirà la sua preziosa pasta madre che viene da Israele. Breon è un grande professionista con i cani..."
