About this listing
We have a flat to rent as we work abroad as volunteers in Asia.
The flat is located in VIALE MARCONI and it's a lovely penthouse (60 sq.m) with a GREAT view from a beautiful terrace (60 sq.m) where we enjoy wonderful dinners and lunches with a view all over Rome.
The flat is 10 minutes walk from TRASTEVERE STATION (where you take a train and get to Fiumicino International Airport in 25 minutes) in a very lively area full of shops, restaurants, cinemas and nice people: the magic is that our flat is completely silent and you can sunbathe or maybe spend a wonderful New Year's Eve on the terrace enjoying the fireworks that happen in town.
Testaccio with its nightlife is at walking distance and there are plenty of buses taking you to the modern EUR area in 10 minutes as well as Termini Central Station and to the historical centre in 15 minutes but you may also take a walk to the ancient Rome in less than 30 minutes.
By metro (Piramide Station) you can reach the seaside of Ostia with beaches and restaurants in 30 minutes.
We have a double room, living room with unfoldind sofa-bed, kitchen, small studio where we can put a little bed in case you have a child.
Washing machine and dishwasher, A/C.
Lovely roofgarden with table, chairs, futon, barbecue: everybody falls in love with that!
Internet WI-FI access is included.
Airport pick-up on request.
By the way, you don't need to have a car to live here as the facilities of the area are countless and you will easily feel part of the real Rome, being one step away from Trastevere, Testaccio, the historical centre and the tourist area.
Bycicle is definitely the best means to hang aroung in Rome.
Get in touch and we will welcome you!
Smoking is allowed on the terrace only.
No drugs. No animals. No parties.
Respect our place and our neighbours.
Not more than 4 people in the flat, except in case of families, for example, 2 adults with 3 kids.
Sejour extra ! Accueil des plus sympathiques et l'appartement est tres agreable tout comme la terrasse. On est a 20 mn de bus du centre historique mais le quartier de la viale marconi est tres vivant, un glacier fantastique a quelques pas de l'appart, une rue tres commerçante avec paneteria et fruteria au pied de l'immeuble. Nous sommes arrives assez tard, vers 23h, c'est le frere qui nous accueillis, et il avait prevu le jambon italien, olives, pain frais et bouteille de lait pour le ptit dej des enfants le lendemain. Du jamais vu ! Ils sont forts ces italiens. Pour tout ça, encore merci a toute la famille de laura.
Vous pouvez signer avec Laura sans hesiter, vous ne serez pas deçu.
The hosts were really responsive and helpful and did not disturb us during our stay in the apartment which for itself was great - fully equipped, had all the things you might need during your ordinary day and of course a very nice and large terrace on rooftop where to have your breakfast before leaving to the ancient sites and supper after returning. By the way bus stops in both ways are within a block, a supermarket is a 5 min walk away and there is a very nice take away pizza just across the street.
The apartment is several km away from the mostly visited ancient sites, but once you get accustomed to the transportation system its just the matter of bus and metro train frequency. So you can get to the Colosseum in about half an hour and a trip to the sea is manageable within an hour without not much walking.
The stay was fantastic. Only downside was we couldn't get the BBQ to light. But that's not too bad.
This was the perfect spot to stay in Rome. The hosts were incredibly accommodating and even arranged a ride back to the airport for us. The apt was incredible. It was quite large and had a beautiful terrace with an amazing view of the whole city. We ate dinner out on the patio almost every night and watched the sun go down! The air conditioning also came in really handy, and was the perfect relief from the hot days walking around! The neighbourhood was full of locals and we were able to walk everywhere. Overall, it was a great stay and Laura was the perfect host!
