Vacation rentals in Italy (villas, farms, estates, agriturismo, apartments)
Review 1312: Sleep in Italy, Sant'andrea
1bed/1bath apartment near Campo dei Fiori, Rome
February 2005, 4 nights
Steps away from Campo de' Fiori. Central to everthing, yet quite peaceful.
Lots of things nearby, staring with the daily market in Campo di Fori. There is also an excellent bakery on the Campo (one of the best in Rome, perhaps?), and a grocery store a few streets away.
Stylish apartment created out of the owners' flat. It's on three levels, the top being a loft with a double bed. On the ground floor are the kitchen, eating area, and a doble hide-away bed. The second floor has the bathroom, a sitting area, and another double hide-away bed.
No garden, terrace or balcony.
All the furniture was clearly chosen with care, with many items antique or at least "period." Attractive art on the walls too. Yet it was also very functional, with plenty of space for lounging; we managed to get through the visit without our two small children destroying anything.
Single bathroom in excellent shape. Shower only, but a washer too.
Very nice kitchen, fully equipped: range, oven, microwave, dishwasher, and lots of pots, pans, plates, etc. When I mentioned that I was a wine lover, the owner quickly produced a couple of excellent glasses.
Problems or Bonuses
The owners were very attentive and supportive. They have prepared all kinds of information on shops and services in the area, along with restaurants. They quickly accommodated our few special requests, and very kindly let us stay late in the apartment on our last day, since our flight out was in the evening.
Agency and Representatives (and price)
My contact with Sleep in Italy was via e-mail only, but they always responded promptly, and answered all my questions. It was nice to pay the deposit by credit card, and avoid the hassle of a money transfer.
Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?
I wholeheartedly recommend this apartment. Lovely apartment in just about the most perfect location (as far as I'm concerned).
Things to do in this area
You're in the heart of Rome. What's not to do here? But do try the cornetti at the bakery in the Campo. The real Roman thing, soft and flakey like the best croissants and yet somehow quintessentially Italian.
