The Space

Situated in an historical building of 1926, near the river Tevere, the flat is exactly between two very central districts: Trastevere and Testaccio.
You can find public transports just out of the door! The streetcar number 8 reaches Piazza Venezia in few minutes; busses 170, 719 and 718 bring you to central station, to the closer subway stop of Piramide and to Piazza Venezia; in five minutes walking you can get to Trastevere Station where trains to and from Fiumicino Airport and St. Peter's Cathedral stop every 15 minutes.
In the neighborhood you can find everything you need in few steps: supermarkets, cafes, pharmacies, restaurants, pizza, beer house... and, exactly behind the building, every sunday, there's the most popular and old market of Rome: Porta Portese.
The very good thing is that the apartment is in a secondary, very quiet street.
The flat is cute and newly renovated. It's composed by a lounge with a very comfortable double sofa bed, a bedroom with a queen size bed, a lightful dining kitchen, a bathroom with a bathtub and a lovely garden with a lemon tree! If you need an extra bed, there's a mattress on a little loft approachable by an handy retractable stair, but I also can put it in the bedroom. A baby bed is available too.
If you reserve two weeks or more you'll pay no extra charge for third, fourth and fifth person. Write me about it.
Please don't hesitate to contact me for any request.

  • Un séjour très agréable du 10 au 14 avril 2014 dans ce spacieux appartement situé au sud du Trastavere, à deux pas du Testaccio, à proximité immédiate de la gare (facile quand on arrive de l'aéroport) et avec tramway direct au Centre ville. Une terrasse en outre qui est un plus indéniable. Et le tout dans un charmant immeuble romain. Un grand merci à Carla pour ses nombreux conseils, sa réactivité et son accueil. Je recommande cette adresse !

  • On a duty mission in Rome, I stayed in Carla's apartment for nearly three weeks and enjoyed it immensely. The flat itself is very sweet, spacious, charming and fully renovated. In fact it could accommodate 2 couples and 1 or 2 children. The mini-garden was a huge plus (to relax after a long day of work). Bed very comfortable. Wi-fi working perfectly. The flat is not located in the most glamorous (and noisiest) part of Trastevere, yet it is conveniently located near the Trastevere train station (direct to airport), with quick access to tram, buses and taxis all around. You can even, like I did, walk to the historical centre of Rome from there. For me this was ideal. Carla was simply adorable, responding within minutes to any of my questions. If i enjoyed this flat in rainy cold winter, you will certainly love it in spring and summer.

  • I and my family spent 8 nights in Carla apartment. The apartment is cosy and comfortable. It's suitable for travelers with kids. There is good connection with historical center and Vatican. The way to Piazza Venezia takes 20 min. by tram#8/bus#170, to Vatican 10 min. by train F3 in direction of Viterbo. The bus/tram stops and Trastevere train station are in a few min. by walking. Carla is helpful and cordial person. We were happy in her place. Carla, thank you very much! And welcome to S-Petersburg!

  • Carla's apartment is comfortable and cosy. It's very convenient to Trastevere Station (easy commute from FCO airport) and the #8 tram (which goes right to the historic center). Also not to be missed, the amazing Porta Portese flea market on Sundays, which is literally around the corner. Although we did not have the chance to meet Carla, we were met by her kind friend Andrea. Everything went smoothly as Carla is a very conscientious communicator. Thanks for a happy and memorable stay in Rome!

  • We had a wonderful stay in Rome and Carla`s apartment suited us perfectly.
    Lovely furnishings, comfortable bed, convenient kitchen, ample room, oasis like patio with lime trees, safe neighborhood with a number of restaurants nearby.
    The bus and tram were a couple of blocks away therefore getting to the Coliseum, Forum etc. was easy and quick. We even walked home from this area one afternoon and it took about a 1/2 hour.
    We can`t thank Carla enough for working with us to make our visit to Rome so memorable.
    We would definitely stay there again.

  • This house is spacious and comfortable! The garden is very cute!

    The kitchen is very well equipped. The house was an enjoyable place for us to stay while we did some hectic site seeing in Rome for several days. We walked to the major attractions - 40-50mins one way to the coliseum for example. But there is a train station and tram line nearby that could be used.

    Unfortunately there didn't seem to be enough hot water for all three of us to have hot showers, but Carla didn't seem to think was normal. Bring your mosquito repellent if you are staying when it is hot!

    Carla met us upon arrival and she was very helpful. The area around the house is lovely - there are many places to eat/drink around the corner as well as a super market. You should know this is not a touristy area, but more of an authentic Rome experience!

    Thanks Rachael for your feedback. I'm happy you enjoyed the apartment. I'm so sorry for the inconvenience you have had with the water heater. Thanks for reminding reported. I will immediately solve the problem.
    I wish you the best. Carla

  • Moi et mes parents sommes restés une semaine à l'appartement de Carla, à la mi-septembre. L'appartement était propre et fonctionnel. Cuisine bien équipée. Pour un couple ou 3 personnes, c'est l'idéal, compte tenu qu'il y a une chambre fermée et un divan-lit. Il y a aussi petite mezzanine avec un lit simple qui peut être pratique. Nous avons eu un coup de coeur pour la location! L'appartement est à 20 minutes de marche du Trastevere et moins de 10 minutes du Testaccio, un autre quartier moins touristique de Rome et idéal pour aller souper/sortir le soir. Nous avons trouvé des supers restaurants! Sinon, nous nous sommes promenés en Tramway (la ligne étant située à 5 minutes) ou en autobus (arrêt à côté de l'appartement ou très proche!). Le centre historique et les attractions principales de Rome sont donc très accessibles! Selon nous, un petit point négatif concerne l'eau chaude, puisqu'il n'y en avait pas assez pour trois douches de suite. Cela reste toutefois un détail puisque tout le reste était bien. Nous amenons également la suggestion de mettre un air climatisé. L'appartement est tranquille quand les fenêtres sont fermées, mais il y a quand même beaucoup de bruit la nuit (si les fenêtres restent ouvertes).

    Nous remercions Carla grandement, elle a été très sympathique. Au départ, elle nous a remis une petite map avec certaines attractions/lieux importants autour de l'appartement pour nous situer. Bref, très bon séjour. Excellent rapport qualité/prix. Nous recommandons fortement l'appartement, surtout si vous voulez profiter des quartiers moins touristiques et typiques de Rome.

    Merci Carla!

    Response from Carla:

    Frédérique merci beaucoup pour votre belle revue. J'ai entendu parler de la question de l'eau chaude à partir d'une revue reçu il ya deux jours. Je suis vraiment désolé pour le désagrément. Je travaille sur une solution! Salutations à toute votre famille.

  • Our stay in Rome was great. The apartment was located in a non-touristy part of Trastevere which was nice and quiet. The apartment itself was as described, we had an issue with hot water/plumbing but these issues were sorted out promtly by the host.

Hi, my name is Carla. I'm from Rome. I usually travel with my housband, Ferdinando, and my children: Ruggero and Giuditta. We love North Europe's culture, art in general, theater (our job), and nature. The house I rent is lovely, quite and really well collocated. I'm waiting for your opinion!
