The Space

Quiet and authentic apartment in a Villa on the sideline of the roman ancient road know as Via Appia Antica. Close to the city center (just 6km to the Colosseum) or 25 minutes with public transportatio, this is the perfect place for those who want to stay close to nature and culture while visiting Rome.

If you wish to stay in a crowded place surrounded by noisy cars and masses of people in the touristic part of Rome, this place is not for you.

A green and peacful oasis in a frenetic metropolis: a dream come true!

Approximately 100 square meters. With a bright, spacious country-style living room with typical stone and wood ceilings, an authentic kitchen, 2 comfortable bedrooms, a bathroom, a storage room and a large garden with ancient pine trees (5000 square meters!!!), this place is perfect for those who want to relax and experience Rome in its entirety.

You can use the garden for breakfast, to dine, for a barbecue, to fall asleep in the summer breeze or you may enjoy a bottle of wine in the spring and summer nights. Several tables and chairs are available all along the garden to relax and enjoy nature during the day and at night. Having a garden just in front of the doorstep is a luxury that will enrich your Roman vacation.

The interiors are fully equipped with all the amenities you need: high-speed Wi-fI internet connection, dish washer, washing machine, fridge, oven and stove are available. There is a secured parking-lot if you own a car at your disposal and free of any extra charge.

The villa is surrounded by an extensive park and is located next to a museum. Bus stop to the city center (300m far away), a grocery store(200m), a bar (300m) and a several restaurant (300m) nearby.

You can use the facilities in the garden, eat and relax under pine trees. Your kids can play on the huge, grass field.

We rent surfboards & kitesurfs!

  • This stay was the best end of my 2 months travels I could have wished for. Federico and his family are incredibly kind and welcoming and really made this weekend an unforgettable experience. The house is located In the most wonderful garden, the flat is very spacious and properly equipped. I did not miss a thing and thoroughly enjoyed my time in Rome and meeting this wonderful family. I would love to come back to this little paradise very soon. Thank you!!!

  • Schöne saubere Wohnung in einer alten Villa mit einem traumhaften Garten. Das Grundstück liegt direkt an der Via Appia Antica in historischer Umgebung und ist sehr ruhig bis auf das Vogelgezwitscher. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Sehr zu empfehlen!

  • The place is wonderful, a real oasis, where you are woken up only by birds' (website hidden). The hosts are helpful and gracious. The huge garden, sprinkled with gazebos and Roman ruins, is incredible. The only price you have to pay is that it is not near the center, but a bus will take you to the metro station in 10 minutes. It is not near the center but it is in the middle of the beautiful archeological park of Appia Antica.

  • We had a wonderful stay at the Oasis on the Easter Weekend. A little outside Rome, the place is perfect for a stay of one week or longer. Directly at Via Appia Antica, with some ancient sites in walking distance.

    Federico and especially his mother and partner were very helpful by any means. Whatever we needed or asked for - they had an answer or solution.

    The garden was perfect for us and our children, nice and sunny until sunset.

    We would definitely come back!

  • Unser Aufenthalt in Rom war unbeschreiblich schön! Das Grundstück ist ein Traum, bei der Ankunft fehlten uns wirklich die Worte. Wir haben jeden Tag in dem wunderschönen Garten gefrühstückt und es uns gut gehen lassen. Das Haus ist sehr schön eingerichtet, wir haben uns super wohl gefühlt! In die Innenstadt Roms sind wir mit unserem Auto gefahren, wobei wir tatsächlich die meiste Zeit in der 'Oasis of Harmony' verbracht haben! Abends haben wir in der Bar auf der Via Appia Antica, fünf Minuten zu Fuß, gegessen und getrunken. Die Besitzer Mario und Linda sind unglaublich herzlich und das Essen ist der Wahnsinn! Wir wollten wirklich nicht mehr nach Hause, deshalb haben wir unseren Urlaub auch um einen Tag verlängert. Die Besitzerin des Hauses, Marianne, ist sehr zuvorkommend und aufgeschlossen. Besser hätte es nicht sein können! Wir empfehlen diese Unterkunft jedem, auch wenn wir dadurch riskieren, dass sie bei unserem nächsten Urlaub schon ausgebucht ist...
    Es ist kaum zu glauben, aber wir haben gar nichts an diesem Haus auszusetzen!
    Das war sicher nicht unser letztes Mal hier :-)

  • This is the best of airbnb. The most genuinely nice people I have ever rented from. Only 20 minutes driving to the historic center. Beautiful garden. I would recommend renting a car, as the bus service is a bit slow for my taste. Linda at the alimentari around the corner is fantastic. You can go for some wine and a cheese plate there in the afternoon. The beauty of the countryside, but just minutes from downtown Rome. I highly recommend this place.

  • We stayed for 5 nights in August. Absolutely lovely garden which is verdant and amazingly damp. Many shady trees and places to sit or eat. Parrots flying around, a hedgehog under my garden chair one evening and a number of baby lizards in the house which delighted all of us. Lovely decorative style in Italian countryside theme. The quiet area has many places to visit within walking distance and is a pleasure to wander around. Easy to get into Rome by bus and metro or to places off the ring road, such as Ostia Antica, in a car. Welcoming and helpful hosts. I couldn't say it was perfect as a few things didn't work, but it was such a lovely place we still felt it was well worth it.

  • It is just impossible to describe this amazing place in a few words. My parents, boyfriend and I had such an unforgettable stay of 5 days in the Oasis of Rome.

    The warm welcome of Federico's parents and all the help during our stay was great. The house is very well located, at one of the oldest streets in Rome 'Appia Antica'. It is a great 'green' escape from the crowded city. (there is a busconnection to the metro, very easy!, and taxi is cheap)

    One thing is for sure; We will come back!

I've traveled a lot and seen many different places. Rome is the city I love the most. Why? I love culture and authentic places. I don't like traffic and noisy, crowded places and therefore I consider my homes as oases surrounded by culture, nature and harmony. I am a tech entrepreneur living between Berlin and Rome. I am Co-Founder of 2 tech startups and I am director of a startup incubator in Rome. I like research and for this reason I am also doing a PhD with a focus on crowd-sourcing. In my free time I love traveling, surfing and painting.
