Très gentil accueil de Maria Vittoria, malgré une arrivée tardive et même plus que ça de notre part et des soucis de mail (de ma part) qui ont compromis nos échanges...L'appartement est très joli, propre et lumineux avec une vue magnifique des chambres et face à une des meilleures gelateri romaines, qu'il faut absolument essayer, digne de Berthillon !!! Si le quartier est assez sympathique, il est cependant un peu excentré et il est conseillé de prendre le bus pour se déplacer... Maria Vittoria indique très bien les restos du coin, les supermarchés et l'accès aux transports donc il est aisé de se faire familiariser avec ce quartier. Attention, une tourist tax est demandée en sus du prix (alors que cela ne figure nulle part dans l'annonce) et c'est un peu la mauvaise surprise (surcoût de plus de 10%). Le parking n'est pas privé mais dans la rue (mais on trouve des places et c'est gratuit).
We had a pleasurable stay. We were met without any difficulties by her husband and given great advice and directions. Bonus was the amazing Gelato place across the street. You could watch the line go down from your window then we would head over.
Our family had a wonderful time staying at Maria's place. We were met by her husband, and despite our late arrival he was extremely generous with his time and made sure we were properly settled in and orientated with the apartment and our location.
The location itself is amazing. There is great public transport and easily walking distance to a lot of great sights in Rome. We arrived mid heatwave so opted for the public transport and taxis. Air conditioning at the apartment also helped coping with the heat easy. Maria also provided plenty of information on local eateries and maps to all locations worth visiting. If you are gluten/dairy free as our family are there are sensational places to eat in the Trastevere area and the local market, just around the corner, has great quality produce for self catering... Oh and the gelato store directly opposite also has diary free options and is out of this world.
All in all this is a great place to stay and Maria and her husband the perfect hosts.

Nos sentimos muy cómodos en el departamento de María Victoria, ella y su esposo muy amables . Tuvimos un inconveniente con el aire acondicionado que no funcionaba pero lo solucionaron rápidamente y la estadía fue de los más placentera.
Our family's stay at Maria's apartment was great! We are a family of 5 (3 teenagers) and the apartment provided enough space for all of us. The location was ideal. We wanted the experience of living in a Rome neighborhood while being close to the attractions that Rome is so famous for. The neighborhood was quiet yet everything you could want was within 5 minutes walk. A grocery store, fantastic pizzeria's and of course, a world famous gelatoria right across the street. Our kids jumped right in, offering to run downstairs and get gelato on a moment's notice. Maria was very helpful from the day we made our request for the stay. The detailed maps of the neighborhood with stores, restaurants, bus and train stops were VERY helpful. All around - 5 stars!
We really enjoyed the location of this apartment as it was in a lovely, tranquil part of Rome, but also easy to access all the historical sites and the city centre.
There was a wonderful fresh produce market just around the corner and we bought delicious fresh summer fruit and vegetables. There are also some good restaurants and cafes close by as well as bakeries, supermarkets and other shops.
The hosts are very helpful and attentive and Maria is quick to respond to any query. The lines of communication are always open.
The apartment is clean and well appointed.
The apartment was very clean, spacious and we really enjoyed the restaurants and gelato in the neighbourhood. Good wifi connection and host was very thoughtful and informative. Will definitely recommend.
