About the neighborhood.
The location is SW of Rome, half way in the route City-Airport (Fiumicino), it's a residential, quiet and green area, although the apartment is 5 minutes away (walking) from Via del Trullo, a main street where you can find small shops, a nice local typical market with all you may need (grocery, butcher, fishfood and more), a discount supermarket, a "normal" supermarket and (taking a bus) a little shopping mall. If you want a big mall you'll have to take the Urban Train, but I doubt this will be interesting for you... :-)
How to move in Rome from Via Tempio di Dia?
Although it reaches almost every small corner of the city, the surface transportation in Rome is very complex and sometimes could result quite slow, therefore it is adviceable to only use it to commute to the nearest Metro (underground) or Urban Train station. Of course if there is none nearby, Buses are anyway a good option although must be considered a longer trip.
Rome offers integrated solutions for the transport tickets, therefore when you buy a ticket you can also use it for the Metro or the Urban Train, and these are some options:

Interaction with Guests
From A to Z. .. I show you how to get there, you'll be picked up at the metro station and I'll take you to a ride in the area before taking you home, I'll explain the whole house and will ask if all goes well during your stay ... I will not be insistent but available. :-)
Rules are the usual ones: be quiet at night and keep it clean, so do as if you were in your own house.
Kitchen dish-washing before leaving is mandatory, smoking allowed although preferred outside, small pets accepted if they can stay outside (there is a covered space outside).
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans la maison. Elle est exactement comme sur les photos, confortable, spacieuse, propre et agréable. Nous étions 8 et il y avait largement de la place pour tout le monde. Mention spéciale à la terrasse, particulièrement agréable pendant la période de grosse chaleur.
Les hôtes, Pietro et Fernanda, nous ont accueillis très chaleureusement. Malgré un retard important de notre avion, ils nous ont attendus et Pietro est venu nous chercher en voiture à la gare. La maison était prête, les lits faits et tout ce qu'il faut pour un copieux petit déjeuner nous attendait. C'était particulièrement appréciable après un long voyage!
Pietro parle très bien français. Il a été d'une grande disponibilité et nous a emmenés faire un tour du quartier en voiture pour repérer les magasins et les lignes de bus.
Pour résumer, un très bon choix de logement qui a contribué à la réussite de notre séjour.
Pietro was extremely sweet and helpful. The day we arrived he met us at the apartment. He had organized some food for the following days breakfast! This took us by surprise :) Pietro explained thoroughly as to where we needed to catch the buses and trains to go into central Rome. The house was neatly kept with fresh linens and towels as was the kitchen with dishes. Overall, our experience was great!
Spacious apartment with all appliances you need. Location wise, it's not for persons with xylophobia, but is well connected to public transport. Hosts were very very good and communicates very very well. Pietro and his wife were very generous. Definitely would go back to their apartment. Highly recommended.
Pietro e sua moglie sono stati davvero gentilissimi. Mi hanno accolto alla fermata della metro EUR-Magliana e in macchina mi hanno accompagnata fino all'appartamento dove avevano provveduto a farmi trovare un po' di spesa. L'appartamento è molto grande e spazioso, esattamente come da foto, adatto per un soggiorno di un gruppo numeroso. La zona è forse un po' scomoda per la sera in quanto mal collegata dai mezzi notturni, ma se si ha la macchina è un problema decisamente secondario e, del resto, gran parte di Roma è mal collegata dai mezzi notturni.
Stefano and his apartment are great!!! Big rooms, nice nature and all useful thing are included
Cheap&Chic was our first experience with AIRBNB. We have experienced the location and the owner as very friendly, clean and as we were home. Our first day breakfast was within the price, the appartment was perfect for our family of 5 and Stefano the owner is great. He drove us around in the area, SMS't me after 2 days whether everithing was allright and when we left. In the house everything you wish is there; dishwasher, washingmachine, refrigirator, etc. Our beds were perfectly arranged and we had more than enough towels. The house is just in the middels between the airport (half an hour) and the city (half an hour) in a quied area. The residential area has a small shopping street (more than 20 shops) and several restaurants.
We can warmly advice and recomment this house. You can always contact us to know more
I stayed at Stefano's place with 8 of my friends during new years. He provided me with maps and info about Rome through email. That was very helpfull. He picked us up at the trainstation and showed us the appartment. Everything we needed was there. Kitchen, towels, washing machine, bbq, enough beds and sheets and even a nice welcome gift :)
The place was great and one time stefano and his wife cooked us a very very nice Italian dinner.
The only thing i can say is that if you want to go out a lot in Rome it takes you about 1 hour to get from the center to the appartment because you have to take the night bus.
There is a busstop 5 min from the apartment. The only downside about that is that there is no busschedule in Rome. So sometimes we waited longer than 30 min for the bus to arrive and it takes you a little bit longer to get to the center.
But once you get in the bus, you will be in the center within 30 min. So not to long.
It's a great and cheap place if you want to escape the city rush and if you have enough time on your hands the bustimes wouldnt be a problem.
