THEY ARE LOCATED IN OUR RESIDENCE. In winter you have direct access to indoor swimming pools by elevator from our landing. Very comfortable if it’s cold outside, if you have children ... but pleasant not only for them!). We can access to pools at a much reduced price – this year (only for us) is 5 euro / person / day (not every entry so you can return several times in the same day. Depending on your needs, if you are many people, or there are little children, or you think to utilize pools several times, our poll’s manager usually make us a lump price for all your holiday period. In this way you can have an important price reduction (40 - 50% or more). An appreciated saving for our guests.). Everything is included in the ticket: umbrella and chairs, lounge chairs, tables, showers and continuously monitor the safety and cleanliness of the pools and spaces adjacent. As you can see from our web site photos, our polls aren’t small pools.
In summer outside pool is always open, non-stop from morning to evening. In winter they are opened for many hours in the day and in the evening too. Opened all year around, even during the holidays.
If you need, there is a WiFi connection in the apartment.
It's an high speed up to 7 Mega and you have at your disposal up to 300Mb per day(it’s renovated every midnight). (Ask for information).
If you arrive by plane, we have our SHUTTLE SERVICE. Our driver waits for you and your flight (it’s a personalized service) at the airport and brings you comfortably to/from apartment with his car at a really competitive cost. He has a large car (8 place) so you can travel all together - all your baggage are included in the price - safety seat for children on request. If you are interest, please let me know your flight arrival time and I ask him to give your price.
We are in a typically residential street (green and silent), but at 50 meters away from us there is Colli Portuensi Avenue, full of elegant shops, pizzeria, restaurants, bars, supermarkets (one is opened 24h 7 day. it never closes), excellent pastry shops for the most gluttonous (a ice cream shops “famous” in all town), pasta hand made shop (where you can eat too) and even a covered market for testing typical Italian foods. (Everything is in a walking distance. When you are here it'll be a pleasure for me, to inform you about all of this ).
We have our private little park in the residence but at just 150 meters, you can find many equipped children's play area and at 1km Villa Doria Pamphili, one of the most large and beautiful parks in Rome, (if you like jogging, to have a picnic or relax in spacious green areas, surrounded by some ancient statues or fountains). And after… only 2 km you are at Trastevere, one of the most beautiful and characteristic districts of the ancient city.
Rome is also close to the sea (we mostly because we are situated in the south-west side of the city). You can arrive in 20 minutes to Fiumicino airport and in 30 minutes at the sea (Ostia and the Natural Reserve of Castel Porziano or Fiumicino with his dunes of sand). This is possible because our district has a optimal shortcut to Roma-Fiumicino motorway, and Grande Raccordo Anulare. If you like you can easily reach the same places too by bus or train. '
We have many bus stops near our home. 50 meters stop bus of line 870 brings you to terminal tram line 8 and directly to St. Peter's Basilica (Via della conciliazione). In Via Colli portuensi (200mt) we have 3 bus lines 31,33and180, that take you, with 3 stops, to line 8 tramway terminal, with a little more, to subway station (Valle Aurelia stop) and in 15 stops, without changes, to St. Peter's Basilica and Musei Vaticani ( at“Cipro”stop bus you also find Metro A “Cipro” Station-)
We are really fortunate to have about 800 meters away, the tram line 8, which is a tramway with a reserved surface road. As the metro, but you travel on surface (much more interesting for a tourist). In short, we arrive where we want very quickly (and comfortably because you travel from bus terminal to bus terminal. There is always a seat for you and your children.). Tram 8 brings you directly in 10 minutes (2 km) to Trastevere (railway station, connected to Termini) and until Piazza Venezia e Via dei Fori Imperiali (25 minuts), in the middle of Historical centre, close to Coliseum.
To the stop bus line 8 you’ll also find the line 088 who brings you directly to Hydromania, the most great water park in the town.
There are public transports (pulmans or trains too) who bring you to Termini station from Fiumicino or Ciampino airports So, to arrive to our apartment, you can use them if you like, but many guests prefer our shuttle service (and the difference in price is not so important). Anyway people who spent their holiday in our apartment always “forget” their car in our parking. You don’t need it. We are very well connected and so, it’s more simple, quickly and comfortable visiting Rome, starting from our apartment by tram and bus than via car.
But you can also find more details in our guest’s feedbacks. Their words (and, we hope, your words) are our best publicity!
We try to make our best to answer you in 24 hours.
We are waiting for you and, if you like…ARRIVEDERCI!
About the Host, Grazia
I am an architect and I live in Rome, I love traveling and I've also lived abroad. I speak French and a bit of English. With Spanish ... I hope to make progress. That picture is obviously not me but "Rome". She will be the real enchantress goddess of your holiday (for professional reasons I cannot tie my image to an advertisement. I might add a photo of a beautiful blonde woman or a handsome young man and sparing you my dissertation. But it would not be serious and, especially, what would be the point? I think instead that the goal is to offer you maximum reliability about the veracity of what you see and read here about our apartments.
For this reason I have accepted the offer of Airbnb to send me their photographs to take photos but also to verify everything they have seen in our apartments. (see logo on the photos). If you decide to be our guest, on arrival you will find everything that you've seen in photos or found described here. No unpleasant surprises! Instead I will be pleased to welcome you personally (and I hope that our meeting will be a pleasant surprise, for both!).
“Casa Welcome” was my home a short time ago. "home Sweet Home" was the house of my family. Any case , to build and furnish homes is my job! I hope our houses can accommodate you in the best way.
They were conceived to offer you all the comfort possible, using any technique and experience that are proper of my profession. (equipment, furniture and supplies in the apartment, all "first class"), while taking advantage of exclusive services worthy of a 5-star hotel (3 swimming pools, shuttle from/to airports, babysitter, concierge, children's playground and sport center in border of our residences, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera .... ).
Roma and I will wait for you and, of course, ... WELCOME!
Sono un architetto e vivo a Roma, amo viaggiare ed ho vissuto anche all’estero. Parlo francese e anche un po’ di inglese. Con lo spagnolo…ci si arriva a comprendere. Quella nell'immagine non sono ovviamente io ma "la Dea Roma". Chiedo scusa sin da ora se non mostrerò la mia immagine. Le ragioni sono fondamentalmente 2. La prima è abbastanza ovvia e penso anche comprensibile: per motivi professionali non voglio/posso legare la mia immagine ad un annuncio pubblicitario. La seconda invece è legata ad una personale convinzione: Non credo infatti che, a parte le varie mode e pubblicità, una foto più o meno veritiera di una persona possa dare un valore aggiunto alla credibilità e serietà di un’inserzione. Potrei aggiungere la foto di una bella biondina o di un aitante giovanotto e risparmiarvi questa mia dissertazione. Ma non sarebbe serio e soprattutto a che servirebbe? Penso invece che l’obiettivo sia quello di offrirvi la massima affidabilità riguardo alla veridicità di ciò che vedete e leggete qui in relazione a ciò che vi interessa: i nostri appartamenti. Ho accettato per questo l’offerta di Airbnb di mandarmi un loro addetto che potesse fotografare ma anche verificare tutto quello che troverete sui nostri appartamenti. (vedi logo sulle foto). Se deciderete di essere nostri graditi ospiti, al vostro arrivo potrete constatare tutto quello che avete già visto in foto o trovato descritto qui. Nessuna spiacevole sorpresa! Avrò invece io il piacere di accogliervi personalmente (e spero che allora questa sarà un’ulteriore, gradevole sorpresa, per entrambi!).
Casa Welcome è stata la mia abitazione sino a poco tempo fa. Spero che oggi possa ospitare voi nella maniera migliore. Le nostre dimore sono state concepite per potervi offrire tutto il confort possibile, utilizzando la tecnica e l’esperienza che sono proprie (concedetemelo!) della mia professione. Iimpianti, arredamento e forniture dell’appartamento, tutte di prima qualità. Servizi esclusivi, degni di hotel a 5 stelle (3 piscine, centro benessere, portineria, bar/tavola calda, parco giochi bambini, eccetera, eccetera, eccetera….).
Roma ed io vi aspettiamo e, ovviamente, …WELCOME!
