One of the houses I selected for a holiday, short term or long term with important details to make your stay memorable:

The apartment is in the heart of Rome, right at Piazza del Popolo and Villa Borghese, with Spagna and the Prati district a few minutes away (5-10 minutes). While the Metro and bus stop is extremely close with just a few footsteps away (1-2 minutes), it is in a quiet little street without any traffic noise. The apartment faces the east and west side, so you will see the sunrise in the morning and experience the sunset in the evening. You can enjoy both on your private terrasse that has 180° views facing the beautiful green gardens of Villa Borghese and the green Gianicolo hill. As terrasses usually only exist on the highest floors of a building, this is a unique feature. It is even better as you will have some flowers, a table, chairs and electric outdoor lights if you want to sit outside in the evening. The apartment comes with a washing machine and a drying rack, as well as a TV (italian) and a small kitchen with a gas stove (fully equipped). While the lovely owner Marzia lives a few blocks away, her family lives on the same floor and when I closed the door and forgot the keys, they were right there to help me out. While the apartment is pretty perfect already on its own, it is Marzia who truly makes it a home away from home. On my first work day, she texted me good luck and from time to time she was asking if everything was ok. I can highly recommend the apartment both for a long-term stay as I had booked it, as well as for a short sightseeing trip.

I arrived in Rome a month ago and Barbara founded my apartment. The location and the kind of apartment was exactly what I was looking for. She helped me to leave everything set up before started living there, she told me a list of things I could find around and took my telephone number. The week before she agreed certain things to put in the apartment with the owner in order to make me feel more comfortable and she came with me to find anything I needed. She also found me a housekeeper who perfectly matches with my preferences: in terms of personality, discipline, cleanness and friendly. Today Barbara came to my apartment to fix something it wasn’t working and she stayed with me until the problem was solved. She has a big capacity to face any situation and to find a solution the fastest possible trying to find a good agreement between both sides. She is emotionally intelligent so always knows how to approach the guest and how to read the guests expectations in order to save time and to get closer to the goal.
I am still in contact with her and whenever I have a question I can count on her and know she will try to find the solution.
She is one of that people who I can feel comfortable living in Rome because I know there is somebody I can be in touch with during my stay.

Wonderful and unique experience in Rome. Barbara made our fantastic stay possible, finding me a place in a strategic location with sweet landlord Marzia who prepared a welcome drink at my arrival from tuscany. Very central, where everything is nearby in just a few minutes on foot. The small boutiques she recommended and the special places which I would not have otherwise seen as a tourist were fantastic. Because of her tips, I discovered enchanting places beyond imagination.
Kind and reliable, Barbara is always magical! I strongly recommend her, the will make your stay in Rome an amazing and unforgettable experience.

Esperienza bellissima ed unica a Roma. Barbara ha reso possibile un soggiorno fantastico, mettendomi a disposizione un appartamento in posizione strategica, accolta anche da dolcissima padrona di casa Marzia che mi ha preparato un aperitivo di benvenuto. Centralissimo da cui tutto è raggiungibile a piedi in pochi minuti. Fantastiche le piccole boutique che mi ha consigliato ed i luoghi speciali nei quali altrimenti, da turista, non sarei mai andata. Attraverso i suoi consigli ho scoperto scenari incantati, lontani da ogni mia immaginazione.

Hi Barbara

Daniel & I really enjoyed staying at the apartment on Via Margutta. Thank you for taking on our booking at the last minute.  Paolo picked us up ahead of time and got us to the airport smoothly – he was great – very professional and warm.

We really enjoyed the apartment – it’s location was great and we did come to love the neighbourhood just as you predicted.

Many thanks

Dear Barbara,
Thanks for your kind mail.
I trust you are doing well.
We have very much enjoined the shopping tour with you. Anne has received the items from both shops… when we came back to the hotel my wife  has tried each of the items and she was so satisfied that she wanted to call and thank you.
We have realized that immediately from the beginning of our first meeting with you, you have precisely felt her taste and that is why the tour with you was so successful.
Many thanks again and hope to see you in our next trip to Italy.

Barbara took me under her wing when I was working in Rome for six weeks in 2009, and made my stay in Rome truly memorable, showing me a side of the city I’d never explored before. She is warm, funny, generous and thoughtful, and took me to places that she knew would suit my interests and needs (I was researching shopping in Rome for Lonely Planet guidebooks). As well as helping me scout out some absolutely one-of-a-kind places, Barbara is a great person to spend time with: she knows everyone, knows all the best places to buy the most exquisite things, and is charming, witty easygoing, and fabulously organised.
