Trastevere the dense area across the river, is considered by many to be Rome's most authentic neighborhood, teeming with street life and overflowing with local color. At night, both natives and tourists alike flock to its many pubs and restaurants. The unique character of this neighborhood has attracted artists, foreign expats, and many famous people.
Step outside your door and find Baroque fountains, medieval churches, Imperial Roman temples and the shops, restaurants and people which lead people to call Rome a big "village". Trastevere maintains its character thanks to its narrow cobbled streets lined by medieval houses.

The location is really great and we had a great time! The room was clean, and the bed in a good condition which is important for us. Unfortunately, the bathroom was in a bad condition, and taking a shower was no fun due to little space. We enjoyed tips for restaurants and the great pick-up service from the airport. Thank you!
Great location. Very good communication and helpful advice and guidance of good places to eat - all great. Plus Elisabetta kindly arranged an early morning taxi to the airport. Recommended!
Beautiful, quirky apartment in the heart of Trastevere. Some really unique features like the huge painting on the wall and stylish furniture made this apartment so appealing, it very much felt like old Rome.
Perfect location for eating and drinking by night and only a 15 minute walk to the Vatican, giving us chance to explore Rome on foot.
The area can be a little noisy until the early hours but with the wooden shutters and windows closed it kept the noise to a minimum. It adds to ring in the hustle and bustle of Trastevere.
Comfortable beds even for the sofa bed. Very good accommodation for three people. Nice driver took us to the airport. We got everything we need in the apartment. Walking distance to Vatican. The local environment is very pleasant. You will enjoy walking along the river, beautiful sunlight in the garden across the street upon waking up.
The location was perfect, 12 minutes from Piazza Navone, 5 from Trastevere, 1 from villa Farazina. The suite was nice as the pictures promised, in a historical building, wonderful. The housekeeper is very friendly. The nespresso cups were great! Thank you! Good to mention on your site is that the coffee machine is in a narrow hall way, no further kitchen equipment (no water). Also the climb into the 50 cm high bath tub should be mentioned, kind of a risk in a narrow slippery bathroom . However, these inconveniences did not influence our pleasant stay, we enjoyed the wonderful room with a view. And of course the great city Rome.
The apartment in old Rome was perfectly located: close to restaurants, markets,shops and tourist attractions. Elisabetta was very helpful in organising transport from the airport to the apartment. I didn't get to meet her during our stay but her housekeeper was helpful
We were really surprised at how awesome this apartment was. Great big window, mezzanine to sleep in and lovely downstairs lounge. The location was great, close to restaurants and campo di fiore and walkable to all the sights. The doorman was lovely too! Definitely recommend it and would stay here again.
