About this listing
Just two hundred meters from the Basilica of St. Peter, on the fifth floor of a typical period building, located my holiday home, a delightful newly renovated apartment
This apartment is so much more than just a 'vacation home'; it's a place where someone has left a piece of their heart, soul... and a lot of work.
I moved into this apartment about 8 years ago (before, it had been mine grandfather's), and i tore down virtually everything and started rebuilding the inside from scratch. New, real (not fake) parquet. A total makeover for the bathroom. Custom-made furniture from various crafty friends. Lots and lots of attention to detail and style.
There's an open space loft-style entrance/living room with a double sofabed and a kitchenette ( very well stocked and top-notch appliances), a bedroom, and a full bathroom.
Located in an ex 'blue collar' apartment building (very rare in this area) just a short walk from the Vatican (it'll take you less than 5 minutes to get to St Peter's basilica), it's well-connected with public transportation (buses, the San Pietro train station, the metro is also fairly close).
I'm well-known in the neighborhood and leaves you a list of places (restaurants etc) to visit, where you'll be treated well and often offered a discount
I will also leave you a 'welcome pack' with instructions, and three vouchers: one for a welcome drink (aperitivo) a second one for your first breakfast and the third for a 10% discount in a restaurant, in three different places i chose to recommend closeby..
Now it's time to enjoy your apartment in Rome!
What an fantastic place Gianluca has. When we got there Gianluca was waiting and warmly invited us into his beautiful appartment. He was very thorough and thoughtful when explaining the area and had detailed paper work for us about the neighborhood. It was peaceful, relaxing and we really enjoyed our stay in Rome. Thankyou Gianluca we will be back for sure.
Beautiful flat in a beautiful neighbourhood! Gianluca was so friendly welcoming and truly made us feel home. Thank you Gianluca and I hope to stay at the flat again next time we are in Rome.
Gianluca has an amazing apartment just a 2 minute walk from St Peter's Square. This place is cool and funky and has artistic flare. It also has everything else could need for your stay. Then there is the host , Gianluca , well what can I say? This guy is awesome. He is the nicest person you will meet in Rome. He goes out of his way to make you feel welcome and is passionate about his apartment which has been in his family for generations. He provides his guest with little presents, wine and maps. He is the best. When we return to Rome we will stay with Gianluca for sure. If your looking for the perfect place in Rome, then this is it.
Gianluca was a fabulous host. He made us all feel welcome and excited to be in the great city of Rome! The apartment was spacious, well decorated, and meticulous. It was a superb stay!
We had a great stay in Rome. The apartment is wonderful, everything that is promised and more. The welcome we received from Gianluca was exceptional. We would recommend staying in this apartment when staying in Rome.
Gianluca's apartment in Rome is just perfect - it definitely lives up to and even exceeds expectations from the photos shown here. We were greeted by him on arrival and he shared lots of information about the city and things to do, places to go as well as all relevant local information, he has thought of everything!
During our stay he was always just a text message away with advice and we just felt very at home and relaxed while in Rome. The apartment is such a luxury compared to hotel rooms!
You can walk to St Peter's square in less than 10 minutes and there are lots of great reasonable restaurants nearby. We regularly walked into the city to meet friends taking in all the small streets and sights along the way - but there is also a bus service that runs on the main street just beside the apartment too.
We will visit again.
Grazie Gianluca - siete i benvenuti nel Regno Unito in qualsiasi momento.
