This ethnic and stylish villa, is situated in the “Contrada Canale” in Filicudi. The panoramic view can be seen from a small hidden garden among cactus and volcanic stones. It looks like a Moroccan “Kasbah” as it is surrounded by thick walls that give a wonderful privacy. Great patio and terrace give movement to the structure making it an unique resort.
The first room is fantastic kitchen made with wood, cement, natural stones. It has a strong country touch thanks to the warm colors and materials. it is well equipped with gas stove, oven, fridge and freezer. Wine lover will be delighted by the magnificent wine collection.
Next to the kitchen is the spacious living room with ethnic day-beds with fantastic fireplace. The fabrics come from India and they reflect the house colors. Everything that is in this villa has been carefully chosen, by the owner who is a passionate traveler and architecture designer.
The master bedroom offers a wide king size bed with elegant night tables, wooden benches and at the corner a original”cucina economica”.
All the rooms features lovely wooden ceilings and simple cement floors. The bathroom has been made in the room that once was a kitchen. In particular the shower has been made inside the oven.Volcanic stones are there to keep an original atmosphere.
Separated from the house is the guest room with white king size bed, tables, wardrobes. This room has also ensuite bathroom.
The Patio in front of the rooms has a roof made by bamboo canes, hammocks, sun-beds from Afghanistan, wooden table with chairs. there is a corner over the roof of the guest room with benches pillows and low table, ideal for a drink.
We recommend to enjoy the sun set from the hidden corner surrounded by cactus and stones. It is very comfortable and cozy as there are plenty of pillows.
Great place, very central in Rome. Beds a bit hard and noisy and the "rooms"are in fact two mezzanines with beds. But you really feel like a roman, old restored building, quiet yard. Perfect for a family. Very good restaurant and kosher grocery nearby.
l'appartamento è ubicato a circa m. 100 dalla bellissima fontana di trevi, è pulito, ben arredato e ottimo per trascorrere una piacevole vacanza
Very nice apartment, great location, and everything worked smoothly. I can highly recommend it!
Really Nice area, I wouldlike to do it again
Location was amazing and apartment was nice and spacious. The metro is only 3 blocks away and I am amazed how posh the area was for the price. Would definitely stay here again.
A cozy flat, so close to Trevi fountain that gave us the possibility of visiting it every day! Well-situated to walk around and see the sights in Rome.
The area itself has a lot of restaurants, snack bars, souvenir shops and is close to Barberini piazza, and the metro.There`s a Despar supermarket three blocks away from the flat.
The kitchen was very well-equipped and the flat very warm and clean.
We also hired a car through Lorenzo and Mr.Honey to take us to the airport. The driver was very punctual. Both Lorenzo and Mr Honey were prompt in answering our mails and phone calls
We felt very comfortable and enjoyed our stay very much.
appartement très bien situé, très pratique pour decouvrir la ville à pied. Literie confortable. Seuls bémols; la cuisine est vraiment petite, une des deux salle de bain aussi. Experience positive cependant.
I have only good things to say, an absolute 5/5 experience! Let me break it down as well as give my specific recommendations:
Lorenzo was extremely helpful with the initial reservation as well as with arranging for a driver to pick us up at the airport. The chauffeur, Biló I believe was his name, was pleasant and helpful and pointed out sights and gave directions to restaurants, cafés and ice cream bars we couldn’t miss. The price was 55€ for four people and we could hardly have made the trip cheaper ourselves, at least not without making the trip considerably more stressful and time consuming.
The apartment is lovely with two levels and with a bedroom and bathroom on each level. Perfect for four close friends or two couples. The atmosphere is good and very “Roman” and it is only a few minutes’ walk to some very lovely restaurants as well as Pantheon, Piazza Navona, the Tevere etc. You can hear people down in the streets, but it never gets noisy.
Internet works just fine and there are machinettas – small coffee pots for making coffee – in the kitchen so really, what more could one wish for? We started each day and ended each night with coffee and Internet surfing while we planned what sights to see, checked opening hours etc.
Bonus info: Just around the corner, in Via dei Soldati, is L’Osteria de ‘Memmo’. Order the antipasti and marvel! For a very fair price you will get dish after dish of fresh, delicious Roman antipasti and you might not be able to eat anything more on the menu … Not even dessert, sweet tooth or not.
Lorenzo was very friendly, helpful and very easy to communicate with. We had no problems and all our enquiries were quickly answered.
Bottom line: Yes, I most definitely would recommend this apartment to friends and yes, I would most definitely come again myself.
Excellent accommodation, location and service. Response from Lorenzo was prompt. Directions to reach the apartment were perfect and the key holder arrived at the apartment just after we did. The apartment was very clean, with ample space, well equipped and warm. The location is perfect for walking everywhere, as we did. There are good ristorantes at the end of the street. Mr Honey, organised a taxi to take us to the airport and he was on time and helpful. An excellent apartment that we would recommend to anyone and would return to if we are in Rome again.
Lovely apartment near the Colosseum, rasspolozhenie just wonderful. Many thanks to the owners ha warm welcome.
