A LITTLE JEWEL IN A GRET LOCATION: ALL THE CHARM OF ROME JUST OUTSIDE THE DOOR!
MOREOVER, A BUDGET THOUGH ELEGANT SOLUTION FOR YOUR STAY!!

Lovely STUDIO-FLAT, 32msq (344 sq.feet), wooden furniture, cotto floor and refined touches to welcome you in a warming environment looking more a "home" than just a room to rent.
If you are fed up of anonymous and expensive hotel rooms but want to have all oldtown at reach and live in the most characteristical neighbourhood of Rome: that's your place!
You will find all comforts which could be squeezed in a small studio and high quality furniture. Of course, there's a "negative" side: not much space to manage. So all furniture and the toilet is of smaller size than standard flats and sleeping in a sofa-bed - as you certainly know - is not the same thing as in a real bed . That's your place if you are looking for a cosy&elegant though budget place right in the heart of the Eternal City where you can relax and feel at home after your joyrides throughout the city and have also dozens of cafès, cocktail-bars, restaurants, typical trattorie just outside the door.
NOTE: HALF FLIGHT OF STAIRS UP TO THE FLAT. STAIRS ARE PARTIALLY PRESERVED FROM THE ORIGINAL ONES OF THE ANCIENT BUILDING SO THEY ARE MADE OUT OF STONES AND UNEVEN-SURFACED.

Located at the very heart of TRASTEVERE - 50 mt from Santa Maria Square and Basilica - the most characteristic and lively area of Rome, where you will enjoy the typical and international night-life.

ALL MAJOR SPOTS will be at your reach, most of them at WALKING DISTANCE: Campo dei Fiori, Navona Square, Piazza Venezia, Pantheon, Fori, Condotti, Castel Sant'Angelo and others.
YOU WON'T NEED METRO/BUS TO ENJOY OLD TOWN! JUST HAVE A STROLL!

You will also be close to AMERICAN UNIVERSITY in Monteverde (Janiculum) and to CABBOT UNIVERSITY (10 min.on feet)

WELL, THEN, WHAT WILL A TYPICAL HOLYDAY HERE?
Let's imagine!Furthermore, it's the right place for all loving strolls in the streets of old city, with its craftsman shops, monuments, ancient buildings, picturesque corners and peaceful parks.

Trastevere and the adjacent Parione district will give you a real and continuous view on Rome and Italy's history through centuries, above all if you stroll here and around in their many tiny streets which have been the heart of the eternal city.

During the stroll in the neighborhood, you will love to have some relax at one of the many cafès, wine bars that makes it one of most lively districts of Rome: just sit down, have a cappuccino and amuse watching people of all sorts.

Then, a few steps and you will be in Parione, with all the most famous spots of the eternal city: Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Navona, Pantheon and all the architectural, historical, cultural icons of Rome and its glam.
Ideal not also for culture-addicted but even for fashion victims: via dei Condotti, Spanish steps, via Frattina and the other fashion-streets will be within your reach (15-20 min on feet; 2-3 bus stops).

If your passion are also small boutiques, artisan creations, jewels and antiques, you will need only a few minutes walk and crossing the bridge you will plunge yourself into the charming, beautiful Parione district: a maze of tiny, ancient streets full of unique small shops and enchanting views and corners.

Well, you could decide to see first Vatican City and the majesty of S. Peter's Church: here you are, at only 25 min. on feet through the enchanting heart of old town or along the river; you may find interesting walking thereto through Gianicolo Hill, too, with breathtaking views on the City; or just take a bus and be there in 10-15 min.
The bus stop is at walking distance from the flat. There's also a night service.

The flat's also at the back of Gianicolo Hill and its romantic and historical walk with its breathtaking views over the eternal city and many statues recalling emblematic episodes and personages of city history through the centuries.

Though located in the crossroads of movida, this graceful studio flat will amaze you welcoming with its peace and silence, ideal to have some relax and a good sleep before plunging again in the beauty of Rome.
The safety of this area will allow you to get lost in the eternal charm of old town even in small hours and discover step by step the romantic embrace of Rome by night.

  • We can absolutely recommend a stay in this lovingly equipped and clean appartment - you will feel like at home. It's very well located in the Trastevere quarter - we did all sightseeing by foot from the vatican to the colosseum. Sara is very friendly and sympathetic and provided us all the information we needed. Grazie tanto!

  • Sara is very wellcoming and an amazing host. She sent me how to come to the flat from the airport one month before arrival and let us leave the luggage in the place for a few extra hours before our flight back.

    The flat is perfectly located in the north of Trastevere, near the Tiber. Many good restaurants and nice bars proposing "Aperitivo" around it. Many turistic places can be reached by foot from it : The Vatican (30mn), The Forum/Palatin/Collisée (20mn), The Trevi Fountain (25mn), ... The appartment in itself is one quite large room but kitchen and bed are well separated, everything you need is available in it to cook, wash, sleep, live. The bathroom, and the whole place, is very clean. Another good point : funny old school Italian decoration ! The only less comfy point may be the sofa-bed, a little bit rough for me.

    We had an amazing time in Rome and this flat ! It's a perfect location to spend a few days (5 for us) in this marvellous city.

  • We had a wonderful experience at Sara's charming studio. The location was perfect - literally take a left and within 1-2 minutes you are in the middle of Trastevere, one of Rome's liveliest neighborhoods with lots of restaurants, cafés, bars and shops. About 25 minutes walk to most of the tourist sights (walking through Rome is the best way to discover it in my opinion). As for Sara's place, it was perfect. The pull-out sofa bed was pretty comfortable, it was clean, and even though it is so close to the lively streets if Trastevere, we found the apartment to be peaceful and quiet. Sara was very warm and organized, even left us some cookies/biscuits/snacks and had the fridge stocked with some yogurt and juice she also had a list of her recommendations for restaurants, etc. as well as maps and guidebooks. All in all this was the perfect choice for our stay. When I come back to Rome I will definitely be staying at Sara's again!!!!

  • A great stay in Trastevere! Sara offers such a lovely flat in a great location perfect for a perfect Roman holiday of exploring the sights and all the amazing food. The flat has everything you would need for a cozy and comfortable stay and getting in touch with Sara was not a problem at all.

  • I would absolutely recommend Sarah and LE BON-BON rental. The apartment was just as described and the location couldn't have been better. It's on a quaint little side street within walking distance of the major tourist sites. Being located just off Santa Maria square in Trastevere meant there was always great people watching, excellent restaurants, and plenty of entertainment each night.

    Sara couldn't have been more helpful and always responded to emails in a very timely manner. Prior to my arrival, she sent directions for me from the airport by train, bus, and taxi. She also had no problem (email hidden)-up with my sister, who was already in Rome, to exchange keys before I got there. She kept the apartment stocked with supplies and snacks for us as well.

    I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone traveling to Rome.

  • I enjoyed my stay at Sara's place. I was a bit late arriving due to getting lost but Sara's mom waited for me. Le Bon-bon was very quiet and had everything I needed. The standard of cleanliness was very high. While there are not many windows, this was not an issue since I was out most of the day. I would definitely stay there again.

    April 2014
  • The location of Sara's place could not be better. We walked everywhere. Sara is very helpful and well-organised. No problems with check-in or check-out. We would definitely stay here again if we are fortunate enough to return to Rome.

  • L'appartement est très bien situé au coeur du Trastevere mais à l'écart de son agitation. Un lieu idéal pour rayonner autour. Le lieu est charmant et les petites attentions pour le petit-déjeuner sont appréciables. L'équipement est aussi appréciable et bien étudié, cela rend le voyage facile (wifi, sèche-cheveux, parapluie, guides, plans...). L'accueil est chaleureux et très informé, à la moindre question, une réponse adaptée. Deux inconvénients sont cependant à signaler : un lit incommode pour les grandes personnes (comme moi!), une barre au pied du lit empêche de s'allonger de tout son long (pour les personnes au dessus de 1,85m), le matelas est cependant confortable ; ensuite, les petites fenêtres en hauteur ne donnent pas beaucoup de clarté et assombri l'espace. Un atout si vous venez en été, pas dans notre cas où il a souvent plu!
