“spectacular views and excellent hospitality”
Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Just got home today from a perfect stay in the "new cottage " . I can honestly say that it is the cleanest and most well equipped apartment I have ever stayed in . Marco and Kerstin have thought of everything .....Mosquito nets at the windows so you can have the windows open all night if you wish . Air con in the bathroom as well as the bedroom. The bathroom is excellent , it has a large shower plus a bidet , heated towel rail and a hairdryer stored in the bathroom cupboard .
The kitchen has every utensil you could possibly need , a fridge,a freezer and a microwave .
The bed is large ,with very comfortable pillows , there is a huge wardrobe with good hangers in too .
The convent next door is beautiful .....the gardens are exquisite and the bell rings on the hour but not during the night .
It is only a few minutes to the tram stop and it takes roughly 2o to 25 mind to get to the piaza Venizia , which is right in the centre of all the main attractions .
Marco and Kerstin our hosts were so welcoming , even though we arrived early the greeted us with such enthusiasm .
Kerstin took us in her car to the supermarket to buy our first lot of shopping and to buy our tram tickets . Kerstin even went to the Vatican to pick up our tickets for our trip to the Vatican .......nothing was too much trouble for them , even down to lending my husband a cap for his sunburnt head.
Kerstin will pick you up from the airport for 30 Euros ....unfortunately something went wrong with my e-mail and I did not get her message .
If anyone is thinking of booking here ....please book ....you will not be disappointed , the"new cottage " is an oasis that you can return to after the noise of the tourist attractions ....waking up to the birdsong every morning is truly blissfully .
My eternal thanks to Marco and Kerstin for a truly amazing visit to Rome

Dear Susan and Paul,
thank you so much for your wonderful and detailed review on our "NEW COTTAGE".
It was particularly pleasing to read that the decision to install retractable insect screens on all windows has been noticed and appreciated. In fact, while not constituting mosquitos a problem, being the Villa completely immersed in the green, mosquito nets are a useful precaution.
Just as it was pleasing to read that you enjoyed the King Size bed.
It is, in fact, a bed that can be set up as 2 single beds or one double bed, while being equipped with back and finishes in solid cherry. The dimensions are very unusual (length 220 cm / width 200).
Thanks again,also, for all the beautiful expressions used toward us.
Marco and Kerstin

We had a fabulous 4 days here. Marco and Kerstin were excellent hosts and made themselves available to answer questions and explain things. For an extra 30 euro they picked us up from the airport which was brilliant for us as we arrived so late.The tram into Rome Central was 100 meters up the road. Great holiday for these two New Zealanders

“Perfect for a couple's holiday”
Reviewed 13 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Me and my boyfriend stayed in the cottage for three nights at the end of April. We had a great weekend away and the cottage was perfect for us.

The property was exactly as advertised, very clean and immaculately presented. Although the cottage isn't huge, it's perfectly suited to couples or a family with a young child.

The property is further out from the centre of Rome but a tram ride will get you there in twenty minutes. The cottage is perfectly situated for the tram station, which is a couple of minutes walk away, and the beginning of the number 8 line. There is also a large park nearby which is great for just relaxing when you want a break from the city.

Kerstin (our host) was more than helpful throughout the entire trip. She picked us up from the airport as well as dropping us off at the end. She provided great advice about the local area such as the market, Vatican and local restaurants. She took us to the local supermarket, and helped us buy our travel tickets. Throughout the entire trip, Kerstin was a great help and made our holiday a lot easier.

Overall we had an amazing trip, and would highly recommend staying here if you're looking to enjoy Rome without being in the centre.

La ringraziamo per essere stata nostra ospite. Ci dispiace che abbia trovato il letto non di suo gusto, anche se non abbiamo capito il motivo in particolare. Infatti, trattasi di letti più larghi e più lunghi del normale, con materassi moderni in lattice (memory foam). Per quanto riguarda il pericolo della sua caduta dal letto, se fossimo stati informati, avremmo potuto provvedere con un letto con sponde, tipo ospedale. Per quanto riguarda i biglietti del tram che conduce al centro di Roma, questi sono acquistabili in ogni tabaccheria di Roma, ed in più noi ne abbiamo una scorta per ogni evenienza, che consegnamo a chi ne faccia richiesta al prezzo stampato sullo stesso biglietto (€ 1,50). Infine la tassa di soggiorno per una guest house, come la nostra, stabilita dal Regolamento Comunale, è di € 3,50 a persona adulta al giorno. Negli alberghi, invece, varia a seconda della categoria da € 5 ad € 7,50. Rimaniamo a disposizione per eventuali ed ulteriori chiarimenti. Saremmo lieti di averla nuovamente nostra ospite. Kerstin e Marco
