Private room (22 square meter), very cosy and detached from the apartment. All made of wood and thermal insulation for the winter and summer. Air conditioning: warm and cold.
Sleep in a Chalet in the center of Rome, 3 minutes walk from Metro Orange line station Furio Camillo, travel to Spanish steps, Colosseum and Termini station in 10-15 min.
From FIUMICINO AIRPORT: train Leonardo Express to Temini station and metro A orange line towards Anagnina, Furio Camillo stop (very expensive). Cheaper with train to Fara Sabina get off at Tuscolana, from there you can walk, or catch a cab for about 8 euro (quick and easy way).
From CIAMPINO take the bus to Termini station, then metro A orange line towards Anagnina, Furio Camillo stop. Or Cotral public bus from out side airport to Anagnina, then metro Orange to Furio Camillo (cheaper and quicker solution).
We have a toy size poodle called Nuvola, she's like a small baby in the house. No pets are allowed Nuvola would be jealous!
We are musician (trumpet, trombone and doublebass player) so you might hear us playing or practicing.
Staying in our chalet is an experience, I can see it from the expressions of our guests when they arrive! It's a really cool place, and we love it.
We offer a real continental breakfast, which is included in the price obviously, as a real British stile B&B.
We love movies and have a great choice of dvd that you can watch.
With the great sunny days in Rome you can enjoy our 120sqm terrace.
The area is very quiet and close to two major parks: Villa Lazzaroni and Parco della Caffarella, lots of green. The area has also lots of traditional and Biological restaurants!
Kitchen (use only for breakfast) and Terrace. Shared bathroom with the owner, we ask collaboration to keep it clean.
Interaction with Guests
We will meet when I'm at home. If I'm at work you will have to make your own breakfast, but the table will be settled with loads of food!!! I've long hours work, it might happen to meet only late at night.
The parks and shopping. Great restaurant and ice cream bar or pubs!
Extremely well connected with busses and metro to the centre.
Other Things to Note
I am quite flexible even though I had to set check in - out rules for guests, because of working hours, however there is always a way to get organised!
Rispetto dell'ambiente! e delle cose! cane compreso. No Smooking. Chiedere prima di usare, per non danneggiare.
Ask before using things. No smoking. Sometimes: make your own breakfast.
Please be nice to the dog Nuvola! Do not allow her to eat food out of your bags!!
I stayed at this beautiful little chalet in the middle of Rome. The first word that came to my mind when I walked in was how cosy the room was, filled with plenty of books and DVD'S there was lots to do at night when you needed to unwind after a long day roaming Rome.
Shelly was a very hospitable host, always making sure that I was comfortable and always made sure that I had everything I needed for breakfast.
I would definitely recommend staying at Shelly's if you're in Rome for a few days!
Completely wonderful place to stay in Roma! Shelly is the perfect host and her petit chalet is beautiful. Really enjoyed the quiet, neigborhood vibe of Appio Latino yet it was still extremely easy to access the more bustling areas of the city via metro. Hope to return to Roma soon and would absolutely stay with Shelley again.
This chalet is amazing, it has a magical atmosphere. Apart from being incredibly in order and clean, Shelly and her daughter Alessia are lovely. They let you using their amazing DVDs collection and their books. During the day I also had the pleasure to hear them practising on their instruments; trombone and doublebass. They are also very happy to help and give advice about where to go, what to visit and recommend places to eat. The neighbourhood is very nice as well, with many places where to have dinner and eat ice-creams. The metro A (the main line) is just five minutes walking! Shelly, Alessia and Nuvola made me feel like a member of the family, it was such a pleasure to meet them! Indeed, this will be a point of reference for me and my next visits in Rome.
Lo chalet è un sogno, ha un'atmosfera magica. Oltre ad essere tutto ordinatissimo e pulitissimo, Shelly e Alessia mettono a disposizione la loro bellissima collezione di DVD e libri. Durante il giorno ho anche avuto il piacere di sentirle studiare sui loro strumenti, trombone e contrabbasso. Sono state anche disponibilissime quando ho chiesto informazioni e indicazioni visto che orientarsi a Roma non è semplicissimo! La zona è molto carina, con la metro A a 5 minuti a piedi e un'ampia scelta di posti buoni in cui andare a cena o mangiare un gelato. Shelly, Alessia e Nuvola mi hanno fatta sentire un componente della famiglia. Conoscerle è stato un immenso piacere! Sarà sicuramente un punto di riferimento per le mie prossime visite a Roma.
Shelly is so nice and hospitality! You can't imagin how significant to you if you have more conversation with her! The house is so clean and share with her family. The place is 5 minutes walk to the metro. And the doggy is sooo cute. If you want to feel local Rome family's life, this is really great place. Thanks Shelly and your daughter! I will come back if I come to Rome again!
Shelly is surely one of the best hosts I've met. My friends and I enjoy spending time with her. Shelly is generous, helpful and outgoing. She always gave us useful information about getting around the city. We had a really great time staying in Shelly's place, and playing with Nuvola, the adorable doggie:D The bedroom's spacious and comfy, with a lot of DVDs:P Shelly provided us toast and egg for breakfast, and even shared some of her home made lasagna with us! We'd really wanna be back in the future:D
The chalet is clean and lovely., 5 min to the metro station. Very comfortable to stay. Shelly is a kind and helpful host. She got lots of films and books and she is generous to lend me her films and books to watch and read. I listened her practice at home and she also invited me to her concert! It's really a pity that I can't stay for more days. The peppy is also cute and clever. She's close to people and quiet if u got something for her to eat!
In the house we are two musicians with three instruments: trumpet, doublebass and trombone. You could have the chance to hear us playing...
We love movies and have a great choice of dvd.
With the great sunny days in Rome you can enjoy our 120sqm terrace.
You could also meet our little puddle Nuvola.
AIRBNB has become a stile of life!!
Amo la musica e la cultura: siamo due musicisti in casa: tromba, trombone e contrabbasso!!! Amo la filmografia e la casa è piena di film e libri. Qui si lavora, studia, suona e scrive molto!! Per lo più sono una viaggiatrice solitaria. Abbiamo in casa una meravigliosa terrazza di 120 mq. dove godersi il sole o la pioggia!! In casa si parla anche il francese e l'inglese
