Interaction with Guests

I am a single woman, I live alone, and I work as a screenwriter and movie-director. I have a modern stile of life and am used to share apartments since a long time. I met some of my dearest friends as guests in my house. I welcome my guests amicably and I enjoy if they feel at home

As a professional screenwriter, I usually work at home. However it can happen that I leave Rome for short periods for business meetings. In this case, my sister Maria Pia will welcome you. She will live in my house and will take care of you. She speaks just a basic English, but she is very kind and caring. Anyway I will be always in touch with you if you like or need it.

When I am at home, I am at your disposal if you need useful info or if you have to solve small domestic problems.

I was also a Art History teacher and I have a touristic guide license, so, please, feel free to ask me if you need help in planning your city tours, helping my guests to discover the most beautiful and secret Roman spots. In the same time, you can be sure that I will respect your privacy.

As I told you already, I'll be glad to have a dinner together and let you discover some secrets of Italian cooking.

  • Angiola is very welcoming and charming and her apartment is located in an area where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of Rome and enjoy relative peace and quiet at night-time in your bedroom. Angiola had to go away for a couple of days whilst we were there, but her sister and house help looked after us well in her absence.
    The tube into Rome is very easy and takes only a few minutes, so it is possible to go into the city to eat in the evening as well as daytime excursions, as long as you do not want to stay out until the early hours. There are also some good local places to eat (the best we found is called Boulanger) and many shops nearby.
    I was rather over-ambitious at booking a 16 year old into the same room as his parents and it is my fault that our room seemed a little cramped at times. Angiola was understandably concerned when she saw the size of the third person as the additional bed is only for smaller children.
    Otherwise the room is clean and comfortable with a similar bathroom next door. The breakfast of coffee, tea, juice, yoghurt fruit, cereal and home-made jam is also fine.

  • Angiolas home felt like our second home. She helped us when we needed advice and local knowledge but was not intrusive on our privacy. Her home cooked meal was a lovely touch and gave us a chance to know more about life in rome as well as the other guests. My pasta making skills have improved although not quite up to angiolas standard yet. We would recommend staying here, all was clean and tidy, water hot and good location.

    March 2014
  • Exactly what I was expecting. Bed was comfortable and our host very friendly and informative. 5 mins from the metro. Great value for money. Next time I go to Rome I will stay here again.

  • Angiola's home was a restful, welcoming base for our few days in Roma. It is situated in one of the inner suburbs of Roma, accessible to all places via the Metro and buses. At the end of a day of exploring, amidst other tourists, it was perfect to get away and feel like we were returning home.
    Angiola knows and loves her city and we felt privileged to be in her home, in her company, learning from her insights about life in Roma and things of interest and beauty. She was quickly aware of our interests and helped us get there.
    She picked us up from the Metro on our arrival - that was very generous. She helped us find a great film we went to see and gave us lots of information about what was available - also very generous. She gave us her time for interesting conversations and exchanges. When we really needed to eat a home-cooked dinner, she encouraged us to use the kitchen.
    Our heart-felt appreciation for all that you gave us.

  • My husband, baby, and I loved staying with Angiola who was helpful, friendly, and very welcoming. The accommodation was clean and comfortable.

    The neighborhood and apartment were perfect for traveling with children for the following reasons:
    1. It was very safe.
    2. It is only a few blocks from the metro which was able to take us everywhere we wanted to go.
    3. There was a park only about a 5 minute walk from the apartment with playground equipment for both younger and older children.
    4. The apartment was in walking distance to plenty of food options that allowed us to bring delicious meals to enjoy back at the apartment. Our favorite was Le Bon Boulanger. The apartment was also walking distance to food stores and Angiola welcomed us to cook in the kitchen as often as we liked.

    Overall, we loved staying with Angiola and would recommend this apartment to anyone.

  • Angiola es una magnífica anfitriona, atenta y servicial. Es culta y bien informada. Ofrece sugerencias acertadas. Vive en un sector de la ciudad residencial, muy tranquilo. Está ubicado a 15 minutos de Termini. El Metro de Roma es fácil de dominar, de modo que es sencillo llegar a la estación cercana al píso. Su piso, la habitación y el baño son muy amplios. y limpios. La recomiendo sin ninguna duda.

  • We found ourselves very lucky that we could stay in Angiola's place for this Christmas in Rome.

    First of all, our flight was being delayed for two and a half hours, I was certainly got no mobile and internet access and was not able to contact Angiola. But she's been waiting for us till very late, which we were so sorry for that.

    While, the apartment is located in a safe area with many local residents there. However, you can find good deli, cheap restaurants and supermarkets and shops nearby.

    The apartment itself is a contemporary classic one, with artistic atmosphere. I and my hubby love it very much. The room, kitchen and bathroom were very clean, warm and spacious. We (2 adults and 1 child) found that the room size is perfect.

    Well, Angiola treats real breakfasts every morning. She is a very nice host that she would help you to search and find the places where you could go (as many things shut during Christmas). It's warm, you can feel it. Highly recommend!

  • Good place to stay. Good restaurant almost around the corner. It was very easy to use public transport or make a walk in the parcs. Angiola was very helpful.

    December 2013
  • Angiola's place was very clean and easy to reach with the subway, the communication has been very efficient all along the booking and during my stay, I would definitely stay there again, many thanks

  • Angiola's place was lovely, as is she! I had a very nice time in Rome and it was wonderful to have a relaxing, comfortable place to come home to at the end of the day. The room was comfortable and exactly what I expected and the bathroom was very large and modern. The bed could be a bit more comfortable, but it was nothing to quibble over after a long, exhausting day of sightseeing. The location, a short walk from the metro, I found to be very convenient and safe in the early hours of the night. I was a bit unsure at first, but there is truly nothing to fear.

    Even though Angiola could not be there when I arrived, her sister greeted me and we worked our way through initial details in my extremely limited Italian. Angiola put up with my desire to use what little Italian I know and I appreciated that immensely! She was also kind enough to schedule a taxi pick-up for me.

    Breakfast was a real treat and a great way to start the day--it was especially nice to mingle with the other guests.

About
I am a single woman who works as a scriptwriter and movie director. I also have been for years an Art History teacher in public high schools. Recently I’ve got a tourist guide licence too, so I can help guests to discover the Roman most secret beauties. Memories are important to me but my mind and my eyes are focused on our world's future, and I suppose that's why I seem... or at least I feel... younger than I am. I am used to share apartments since I was young, being very respectful of people living with me and doing my best to let them feel at home. I have to say that a lovely way of travelling to me is to meet people coming from different countries and different cultures… while I'm resting on my own divan! Because I'm quite afraid to fly but I do love differences.
