My cozy studio apartment "The Secret Coutyard" will take you straight to the heart of Rome! All the wonderful sights of the city are within walking distance. Enjoy the terrace for al-fresco dining!

The Space

This studio of charme is situated in the very heart of Rome, the wellknown district of Trastevere. The apartment (35mq) has a confortable sofa double bed and a queen loft bed for a 3rd guest, if needed. Fully equipped kitchenette. Bath with shower and tub.
Wide furnished private terrace (20mq).
This studio is the ideal choice for a couple wishing to spend few days in Rome enjoing the real atmosphere of the ancient city.
Situated at a walking distance from the most important and interesting locations such as piazza Navona, piazza Campo dè Fiori, Fontana di Trevi etc. The neighborhood offers many transportation options including Trastevere railway station directly connected to the airport of Fiumicino. On request we can arrange a private car transport service.

The Neighborhood

Trastevere, the neighborhood "across the Tiber" on Rome's left bank, is a pleasant diversion from the tourist-heavy historic center. Mostly residential and characterized by narrow, cobbled streets, medieval-era dwellings, and its large student population (the American Academy in Rome and John Cabot University are both located here), Trastevere has an ample selection of restaurants, bars, and cafés filled with lively locals. The neighborhood has traditionally attracted artists, so it's possible to find unique gifts in its boutiques and studios. Trastevere is the ideal area to stay for the traveler who wants to experience a more local setting when visiting Rome.

Getting around

Trastevere is connected to the right bank of Rome and the Isola Tiberina (Tiber Island) via several bridges, some of which are from ancient times. The neighborhood is also connected to public transportation via buses, tram lines (numbers H and 8), and the rail station Stazione Trastevere, where travelers can catch a train to Fiumicino Airport, Termini (Rome's central train station), and other points in the Lazio region, such as Civitavecchia and Lago di Bracciano.

Other Things to Note

The center of public life in the neigbhorhood is the Piazza di Santa Maria in Trastevere, a large square outside of the church of Santa Maria in Trastevere, one of the city's oldest churches. It is adorned with gorgeous golden mosaics both inside and out and rests upon the foundation of a church dating from the 3rd century. Also on the square is an ancient octagonal fountain that was restored by Carlo Fontana in the 17th century. Around the edges of the large piazza are a number of cafés and restaurants with outdoor tables, many a good choice for lunch, dinner, or a post-tour snack.
Other attractions in Trastevere include the church of Santa Cecilia in Trastevere, which contains some notable medieval as well as Baroque works of art; the Museo di Roma in Trastevere, which houses interesting archives of Roman civic life from the 18th and 19th centuries; and, in Piazza Trilussa, the statue of Giuseppe Gioacchino Belli, a poet who penned his works in the Roman dialect and who is particularly loved in Trastevere. On Sundays, near the end of Viale Trastevere, antique and secondhand vendors set up stalls in Porta Portese, one of Europe's largest flea markets and among the best places to shop in Rome, especially if you don't mind haggling.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Leo Sistile ist eine wirklich nette und zuvorkommende Person. Das ein- und auschecken war sehr einfach. Sie ist "easy to deal with". Das Appartement ist super gelegen, ein wenig abseits der lauteren Straßen von Trastevere und war ein idealer Rückzugsort, an dem man ruhig und angenehm kühl von den Unternehmungen in der Stadt ausruhen und neue Kraft schöpfen konnte.
    Andererseits ist man sehr schnell wieder im Geschehn. Es ist stylisch und neben einem Willkommens-Wein waren auch eine "Erstausstattung"
    mit Kaffee etc vorhanden. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt!!!

  • Overall: great place to stay. Plenty of hot-water to shower, and the apartment was clean and tidy. Cute outdoor patio for meals. Even though the bed is a sofabed/pullout, it's very comfortable for sleeping. The street is a quiet one with no late-night crowd noise; while still being in the middle of the currently-trendy Trastevere neighborhood. It's a quick walk to the Vatican or Colosseum. Leo is a wonderful host, leaving us some fruit and little breakfast items; easy communication and very helpful.
    Thanks Leo!

  • Nice appartement in Trastevere, clean and well situated. The neighborhood is really pleasant with many pubs and restaurants. We could visit all touristic places by walk. Leo is very friendly and hospitable.

  • Leo is a very nice and smiling person ! The apartment is clean, cozy and well situated (surrounded by restaurants, caffé and close to all the big touristic spots). We were three during this trip, and we really enjoyed our stay in Trastevere. We recommand this apartment to any person who is searching for la dolce vita in Roma. Thanks for everything ! We will talk about you to our friends and family who planned to visit Roma :)

  • Delightful apartment in Trastevere. Unfortunately it was still too cold for us to use the outdoor dining area but this looks as if it would be great in summer providing an extra room outdoors. The apartment is conveniently located in a neighborhood full of restaurants and places to go out and is just over the river from the center of the city. The only issue we had was that at present Leo is not able to offer WiFi so we had to visit the local cafes to get out data fix. Other than that a very pleasant place to stay. Leo was very friendly and gave us lots of great recommendations for local restaurants.

  • Después de una semana en el estudio de Leò sólo puedo decir que ha sido una gran experiencia.
    El estudio es perfecto, ideal para dos o tres personas, todo muy nuevo y limpio, con ropa de cama, toallas y todo lo necesario para cocinar.
    La ubicación es perfecta, en pleno centro del Trastévere pero en una calle alejada del bullicio con lo que no se oía ningún ruido. Al mismo tiempo queda muy cerca del centro histórico y del Vaticano.
    Leò es una gran anfitriona, siempre dispuesta a ayudar con lo que fuera necesario, llamó para reservarnos un taxi para que no tuviéramos problemas para llegar a tiempo al aeropuerto.
    Cuando vuelva a Roma ya sé donde me alojaré.

    Muchas gracias por todo Leò.

    Grazie per la tua gentilezza Oscar!
    E' stato un vero ed è un piacere conoscervi e sono felice di sapere che tutto sia stato di vostro gradimento!
    Spero di rivedervi presto a Roma : sarebbe una gioia ospitarvi ancora!
    Un abbraccio!

  • Sono stato ospite nell'appartamento di Leò per 4 notti e non posso che confermare le ottime recensioni lette prima della partenza.
    La casa è favolosa, completa di tutto il necessario, calda e accogliente. Si trova in pieno Trastevere, a un passo dal fulcro del divertimento romano, ma in una via tranquilla e silenziosissima, comoda per visitare la città.
    Leò è una proprietaria meravigliosa, disponibile per qualsiasi esigenza o semplice informazione.
    Assolutamente consigliata se vorrete trascorrere dei giorni indimenticabili in una delle città più belle al mondo!!

    Grazie Michele!!! Siete davvero troppo gentili! Siete stati degli ospiti ineccepibili ed è inutile dire che sarebbe davvero un piacere per me potervi accogliere (email hidden) auguro ogni bene e ancora grazie per aver scelto il mio appartamento per la vostra vacanza.
    Un abbraccio!

  • Que dire en si peu de mots? GENIALISSIME!!! Des hôtes très accueillants, un studio parfait, même avec les photos nous ne nous attendions vraiment pas à une telle prestation! Rien ne manque, on a vraiment l impression d être chez soi. Je suis enceinte et donc très regardante sur la propreté, le studio brillait! Et le petit plus, la terrasse trop mimi! Enfin sur la situation géographique, on ne pouvait rêver mieux, le quartier de trastevere est pour moi le meilleur quartier de Rome, seul inconvénient pour les couche-tôt, le bruit. L avantage de cet appartement est qu il se situe en plein cœur de ce quartier magique mais dans une petite ruelle préservée du bruit. Les bars et restaurants sont juste derrière! J en profite pour vous conseiller le restaurant Da Lucia collé à l appartement si vous souhaitez déguster de la bonne cuisine romaine! Mais pensez à réserver! Enfin excellent point de départ pour visiter Rome! Nous avons tout fait à pied! Pour résumer: foncez les yeux fermés!

  • La casa di Leò è meravigliosa tanto quanto la proprietaria, estremamente disponibile e gentile. Abbiamo trascorso due notti in questo monolocale silenzioso seppur ad un passo dalla movida di Trastevere. Molto pratico per muoversi a piedi in tutto il centro storico di Roma ed il Vaticano. Pulito e ben organizzato, il monolocale è esattamente ciò che ci si aspetta guardando le foto. Al nostro arrivo abbiamo trovato una bottiglia di spumante e cioccolatini perché le avevo detto che il giorno del nostro arrivo sarebbe stato il mio compleanno della mia fidanzata. Lo consigliamo a tutti coloro che hanno intenzione di immergersi completamente nella fantastica vita romana.

'Quando si incontrano vie amiche, il mondo, per un momento, ci sembra casa nostra' . Viaggiare è da sempre la mia passione e da tempo ho fatto miei questi versi di H.Hesse. Il Viaggio è stato per anni alla base della mia professione; oggi è assoluto piacere. Se posso preferisco soggiornare in appartamenti privati. E' il modo migliore per vivere e respirare l'atmosfera dei luoghi che visitiamo. Proprio come se 'per un momento' quella citta', quella casa fossero proprio le nostre! Questo è lo spirito con il quale metto a disposizione il mio alloggio romano, nella speranza che possa regalare soggiorni comodi e, soprattutto, felici!
