We stayed in Rome in May and the streets were full of tourists and crowds and typical city hussle bussle so to go home this flat every night - which is private and relaxed - was nice. The ground of the property of are very beautiful and well maintained, lovely green grass and fru…

I have already answered this at length but Airbnb appears not to have posted my e reply nor have they been able to explain to me , despite a lengthy telephone call,why this happened The only points I would have time to repeat are that : of course there was cutlery and crockery. It is in the sideboard in the kitchenette; and of course the WIFI works in the Tower like it does everwhere else Often this is a question of accurately typng in the password, capital letters etc. Both of these problems could and would have benn solved by the housekeeper , who is on duty every morning, had she been told All´s well that ends well : we are pleased you enjoyed yourselves

Déception quant à l'état de vétusté de l'appartement. La salle de douche est minuscule et surtout à l'extérieur de l'appartement ainsi que les wc. Si vous êtes chargés, vous avez 3 étages à monter dans un escalier en colimaçon très étroit. 150 euros par nuit est très surévalué sa…

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder . Obviously we have different opinons so I think it is best simply to insert the last review we had of the West Tower "I would like to describe my marvellous time at this wonderful villa, lasting a full four weeks in September 2013. Having stayed a longer period of time than perhaps the average guest, my insights are, I believe, particularly reliable, since I was able to enjoy the villa's consistently well-managed ambiance and upkeep versus reporting the details and impressions of, say, just an extended week-end. I stayed in the West Tower, a delightful hide-away that is both cozy and spacious at once--a place to dig into a great novel or to start writing one. Full of warmth and atmosphere, you are greeted by wafts of lavender when you enter the two main rooms. Then follows a soothing decor of mint-green, gray, violet and cream-white tones; terra-cotta floors, baskets of books, quilts, a nice wood armoir, a rocking chair, writing table and lovely framed paintings and poems that remind one, again, that one is staying in the family villa of an actual family and not that of some conglomerate management company. Though not one of the self-catering apartments, there is a large kitchen and shower with a separate wc. But most of all--and alone worth the price of admission--is the thrilling view of St. Peter's from one of the bedroom windows that is (please pardon the cliche) hopelessly romantic. I am still deciding whether that view is more stunning during a blazing late summer dawn or by night. The grounds of the villa were impeccable for the duration of my entire stay--not a hair out of place. Not once were there any obstructions of any sort (equipment, noisy workers, daytime music, televisions) or anything unsightly--no garbage left untended; no rotting orchard fruit hanging or rolling about; no unkempt furniture/decor. There were no "charming" breakdowns/malfunctions of anything either. The villa itself--as seen from thirty days of comings and goings--was spotless, this being accomplished by a staff that was always gracious and always professionally distant. A doff of the cap in particular to the "Hausdame", Signora S., who was attentive and accomodating when need be; unobstrusive and respectful of space/schedules, as necessary. The occasional bottle of wine would appear on my kitchen counter when I arrived back at the end of the day--a result of the conspiratorial workings between the villa's worldly and (very) hands-on owner and Signora S to keep their guest happy. I was most impressed by the sense of sanctuary to the place--the gates, the ancient walls, the lush garden surrounding you from all sides; of being perched on a hill overlooking striking ruins. It was this sense, above all, that for me summarizes the essence of staying at Villa Habsburg: the quality of exclusive privacy. The location needs no introduction, you are just a ten minute walk from where all the fun begins; the bus connections to and from the villa could not be more convenient (whether into the historic center, to the train station, or coming back to stop just before the villa gates--all the bus lines are right there). Through the imposing arches bordering the property, you are just a skip and a jump from dashing out for a bottle of wine at a nearby grocer or to have a nice, cheap local meal. You may even buy the international press at a local kiosk. Simply put, I had a wonderful time, felt completely at home in someone else's home (a rare sensation, that) and I will most definitely be a returning customer.
