Everyone who walks into Mirela and Stefano's apartment falls in love and is convinced this is a magazine-dream-home in the heart of Rome! Located on the last floor of a 1940s typical building of the chic Prati neighborhood, the apartment is extremely private, there is no other near building as high nearby to obstruct your view of St. Peter’s Basilica’s Dome not far away to your left and the Observatory of Rome on the evergreen Monte Mario hill right in front of you, with the Hilton Hotel that offers fireworks shows almost every weekend. Therefore if charm, nature and central location are at the top of your list, than you’re in the right place!
St. Peter’s Square is just 15 minutes walking, whereas Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain are within a 15 minute direct bus ride. Not to mention that you can reach all of that by bike, because WE OFFER 2 BIKES included in the rent, and the bike rail goes from here to the heart of the historic center. Top that with great local food – and we will give you plenty of tips and well as restaurant offers for our guests upon arrival – museums, shopping galore, and it all makes this the perfect place to come home after a busy day in the city.
There are hardwood floors throughout the apartment and the furnishings have been carefully chosen, according to our taste, over the years, some come from our grandparents’ homes of 100 years ago, retouched with a shabby-chic style.
The living room includes the dining area, a large plasma tv, a stereo system to listen to wonderful music, and a liquor corner where you can taste, in moderation, some of our favorite local drinks. The large window offers you the splendid view described above while letting plenty of light in the room from midday through the evening. There is also WIFI and AC all throughout the apartment.
The master bedroom has a queen size bed, an antique drawer and reading tables and a very large closet. It is a much larger bedroom than what is usually featured in similar style apartments, and that is because we rebuilt the spaces entirely to meet our tastes for fresh open spaces, and a sleeping area that should feel like an oasis.
The second bedroom is furnished with two single beds (to be united into a double upon request) and a closet.
The kitchen is not too large but equipped with all necessary cooking supplies, we Romans believe in high efficiency of small places, and that’s why we are masters in cooking even for ten people in this type of a kitchen! There is an oven and a fridge with freezer.
The bathroom is a very airy space as well, due to the large window overlooking the Monte Mario green hill. It has a minimal shower and a Tuscan style sink block, with hand painted ceramics. Towels, soaps and shampoos are complimentary. There is a washing machine in the bathroom.
