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 10 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
It will be my pleasure to leave you a 'welcome pack' with instructions, and three vouchers: one for a welcome drink (aperitivo) one for your first breakfast in a typical bar in the area and one for a 10% discount in a restaurant nearby, in three different places he chose to recommend closeby..
Now it's your time to enjoy your apartment in Rome!
We had a lovely 3 nights in Rome at Gianluca's apartment. It was so close to the Vatican and St Peter's basilica. The apartment had everything we needed and we felt just like we were at home.
Gianluca was an excellent host and the communication was excellent. Thank you for the delicious bottle of wine and for the help arranging a taxi to the airport.
We highly recommend you stay at this amazing apartment and we hope to return again to Rome!!

It was really nice. Gianluca is very kind. The house was perfect.
Its location, neighbors, everything was great and safe.
If I go to Rome again, definitely I will stay Gianluca's house!
Gianluca was a wonderful host. His house is so loving you'll fall in love as you enter it. It's beautifully designed as well. It's located very near to the St. Peter's basilica. All in all I loved the experience and the house is to come back and stay again for :) Thank you Gianluca!
We were made to feel very welcome from the second we arrived. The apartment is perfectly suited with all amenities,quiet area yet close to (website hidden) peters just a 5 minute stroll away,lots in the area yet quiet to sleep. The apartment is very nicely set out with everything you need. we were made to feel like a part of the family during our stay with nothing too much trouble. we were even left instructions for the local bus and atm. We have never stayed anywhere else made to feel more welcome. We would not stay anywhere else when coming back to Rome. thanks very much.
Nous avons passé 4 nuits à l'appartement de Gianluca et ce fut une expérience mémorable! L'accueil a été au-delà de nos attentes, Gianluca est hyper sympathique! L'appartement est comme sur les photos, très propre et spacieux. Le logement est très bien situé, à 5-10 minutes à pieds du Vatican et 20 minutes du centre de Rome et le tout à pied! Gianluca est toujours disponible et a répondu rapidement à nos demandes. Vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés et sans hésitation! Gracie mille per tuto Gianluca
Hope to see you soon!:-)

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.
