Independent house in a quite street of Trastevere, at walking distance by its movida, but far enough to be not disturbed by it!
Just crossing the river you get the rest of the center: Piazza Navona, Campo dei Fiori, Pantheon are at 10 minutes walking.
It has a big living (with double sofa bed) open upon a fresh garden with dining table, chairs, armchairs under its trees shadow. By the living you can access to a room in loft conversion with double bed, and to the big main bedroom, with 1 double bed + 1 double sofa bed. A big bathroom with bath and shower is in-suite the main bedroom, while a second bathroom is between the living and the kitchen.
The apartment is very fresh. Air cond is in the living/loft, next to the bedroom.
Curiosity: The huge golden frame into the living is a relic by the set of "Pinocchio" movie, directed by Roberto Benigni, winner of Academy Awards in 1997; looking at the movie you will recognize this funny item.
Professional driver service by Mercedes car, from/to airport, at convenient price.
Please note: Local tourist tax (2e /person/night) required cash at check in.
Enjoy Rome staying into this charming little Villa, so unusual for the center of Rome!

Everything was perfect: first, communication with Davide was very easy and he kindly answered all questions before our trip; second, in Rome we met Sebastian, he also was very nice and helpful; third: this apartment is great! We spent there 7 days and it was a perfect stay. The apartment has a parking spot (very rare in Rome). Also, it has in the back a small terrace/ garden in which having a coffee in the morning was a delight. The apartment is architecturally amazing. It looks exactly as in the pictures. As in the pictures, you can notice it is inside an old building, so don't expect the kind of sanitized hospital place you may find in new hotels. The building had a life and also the apartment and it looks like home. It is also two steps away from everything (bars, market, restaurants, monuments). It is big, it was clean and every piece of furniture and decoration are chosen with an amazing sense of beauty. So for us is was a perfect choice, this is how I always imagined an apartment in Rome should look like.
Chris : Beaucoup de points positifs : bon accueil, réactivité à nos demandes, literie parfaite, cuisine bien équipée, appartement bien chauffé, lieu très calme et bien situé.
En fait, l'appartement serait un sans faute si un peu de lumière entrait, c'est le seul vrai bémol, mais il est important.
Impossible d'y vivre sans lumière artificielle.
Pierrette : Gentillesse et disponibilité de Sebastian, bonne literie et bon chauffage, appareils électroménagers performants, mais en effet, une obscurité dans l'appartement qui incite à le fuir dans la journée.
Abbiamo trascorso piacevolmente 4 notti in 8 persone (4 adulti con 4 ragazzi) senza avere problemi di spazio. La casa è infatti molto spaziosa e funzionale, concepita con gusto e originalità in una zona tranquilla e nello stesso tempo centrale per spostarsi a piedi. Non possiamo dire nulla della cucina, perché non l'abbiamo usata. Al nostro arrivo la pulizia era stata fatta in fretta e furia, in particolare nei bagni e in cucina, mentre i letti erano pulitissimi e buoni materassi. Sicuramente si è trattato di un problema momentaneo, perché alla nostra partenza l'inserviente ha invece pulito tutto al meglio. L'host è stato molto disponibile e flessibile circa gli orari di check-in e check-out. Sicuramente da consigliare.
Trastevere House & Garden offered a perfect location for our recent holiday in Rome. We explored the city with easy walking to the Vatican and the major historical sites as well as the numerous bars and restaurants within our immediate vicinity. The house was spacious and well equipped providing everything we could need; it is interestingly decorated and has a perfect garden to relax and eat in the shade. Davide couldn’t have been more helpful both prior to and during our stay. He offered recommendations of places to eat and transport options and responded immediately to rectify a slight problem with the shower in the main bathroom. He was also very helpful and flexible in terms of our arrival and departure times. I would highly recommend this property as appropriate for a large family or to a group of friends who do not mind sleeping in an open plan arrangement. It is a perfect base.
Thank you to Davide.
Davide has a wonderful apartment right in the heart of Trastavere. He was very accommodating and helpful.
The apartment was very grand and spacious, however, not as clean as we would have liked. The bathrooms were not well kept. The shower in the Master Room leaked water onto the floor because the shower door was not properly sealed. the water temperature in the other shower was never very consistent and would keep switching from hot to cold at random times while showering. There was a musty odor in the closets so we did not use them. There were six of us in our group (3 adults and 3 children), so there was plenty of space for everyone. The location was great, but not sure if we would stay here again due to the issues with the showers and the cleanliness.
Hi Hae, I had some not good review in that operiod that I had an alternative housekeeper, sorry for that. Since later I had again my ususal one.
About the shower, we had fix the one on the main bathrooms, that looks to have problem staying fixed on the wall. About its glass door it looks fine, so we couldn't understand what you mean. Using the shower properly it looks to be enough to not watering the floor.
About the second shower, we tried too but looked fine (the hot water is produced by the same boiler, so it has the same temperature/constance of the main bathroom water.)
We didn't meet Davide but were greeted by super-friendly Sebastian who made our stay really smooth. Great place, everything was perfect, thanks so much!
We had a lovely stay at the apartment in Trastevere. The location was spot on, and Sebastian was so helpful and friendly. He gave us some great tips on where to go, away from tourists, for a more authentic Roman experience.
The location is great; about a five minute walk to get to the restaurants and shops in Trastevere.
Davide's partner Sebastian met us when we arrived; he was very friendly and helpful and returned later with extra sheets and toilet paper.
The space is very nice and open, the kitchen is fully equipped with a working dish washer. The glasses on the shelf were still wet from the previous guests. The refrigerator had a strange odor, which I mentioned to Davide, after which someone brought baking soda to absorb the smell. I think it helped a little.
There was a lot of evidence of the previous guests... almost as if they had left within minutes of our arrival there. It was a bit unsettling, and made me question the cleanliness of the apartment.
The place was much dimmer than it appears in the photos; it lacks natural light and the lamps don't quite provide enough light (especially upstairs). The patio was nice, with the exception of the broken washing machine that was layered in wet towels from the previous guests. There was a functioning washing machine in a room that could be accessed via the patio, but we didn't use it. The previous guests had also broken the bed in the master bedroom, which took two days to be fixed (Sebastian came and fixed it himself). In its place was a fold-out bed, which was extremely uncomfortable.
The place had a strange smell of stagnant water and must, especially in the master bedroom on the ground level.
All in all, the space was nice, the location was great, and Sebastian was very responsive and helpful; however, given the high price, the lack of cleanliness, and the lack of light, I would not stay there again.
Hi Taylor, thanks for your several feedback, during and after your stay.
I emprove the light upstairs and removed the broken washing machine ( we were waiting for the special public service for big waste).
I would like just reassure guests about the comfortability of sofa bed, that I think can't be better for a sofa bed, as once open the base is like the one of a real bed, and maitress is not slim. This is the model:

You're right, this apartment is not really convenient if you are only 2 as you were, as the price is the same for 5 people. So better for group of friends or large family.
Very very nice apartment, perfect location.
Comfortable beds, beautiful painting and furniture!
And the key handling was fas.
The perfect mix to spend a wonderful time in Rome!
I recommend this place to everybody!
