Description

The space

This is one of the top places to stay in Rome for families or mature groups of friends. We don't accept college student groups.

We are in a quiet cobblestone backstreet not far from the best bakery in Rome a short walk from everything.

The owner Martin will answer your questions before and during your stay. I mean REALLY assist you. If you want blow by blow help as you plan and enjoy Rome, we can be there for you. If you want complete privacy and no communication as you get away form email etc for a while that's great too. See the reviews....

BOOKED UP? Never fear! I have a rival Roman Jewel that is probably free: http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/230555

Why do I say it's Historic? Well the building probably dates from the 1600s but it was built on top of ruins from far before. Last week, we scratched into the terrace wall and found a Roman Arch buried inside! I posted pics (email hidden)w it is not every day that you have to call in the archeologists when you are making a coffee corner on your terrace! No Wonder Rome's subway has taken decades for a few miles... Please have a look at the pics!

If you are going to Barcelona next, I have a heap of friends with great places so I can refer you if you'd like an insider's opinion.

Guest access

You'll have the entire floor of the medieval building - complete with Roman aqueduct on the terrace! There are steps leading down to the old stables but that is now just my mini-cellar....

5 bedrooms, 3 downstairs two upstairs. 3 balconies. All in a super fun but quiet corner.

Interaction with guests

We are hyper present for our guests. We provide you with connections to the best contacts that we've built up over the years. We're there if you have a problem and are never intruding - we are mostly helping you by email yet live nearby if you need us.

The neighborhood

This is one of the top places to stay in Rome for families or mature groups of friends. We don't accept college student groups.

We are in a quiet cobblestone backstreet not far from the best bakery, fresh pasta store, ancient home made chocolates shop and just a short walk from everything.

Getting around

When you book, I'll send you a complete guest app with all my tips and directions.

Other things to note

The real difference between this and a hotel is 1) HEAPS more space 2) A REAL kitchen - approved by a top NY chef that visited recently 3) This has been the real home of a Roman for centuries 4) You are the ONLY valued guests - we treat you as such!

The furniture and amenities are typical for a large family place in Rome - they were not chosen to be "luxurious" but to give you the feeling that you are at your home in Rome.

My family has lived in Rome since WWII ended and I was so fortunate as to be able to own properties in Trastevere -- the place every Roman dreams to live. I bought these places for my family and was so sad when I had to move away for work reasons. But allowing visitors to stay in them provides me with a vicarious way to enjoy them and we provide work to many people in the neighbourhood. Romans love tourists, love Americans and having a large place temporarily empty allows us all to pamper guests, have them fall in love with Rome that way we all have and it helps a lot of people make ends meet.

I soon discovered that I really enjoy seeing Rome through the eyes of my guests and really like the interaction with so many people from different places around the world. We're pretty organized as we have the Vreasy guest experience system to help us stay on track and provide every guest with more than just a place to stay.
