Our home

Our apartment in Rome is clean, cosy and unpretentious with marble floors, it is very sunny with a big terrace where we love to have dinner during the Summer time, from there you have a great view of the urban landscape.You take the elevator up to the 7th floor and climb up 1 flight of stairs. It is very silent although it is 10 minutes away (by tube) from down-town Roma. The house is hot in the Summer and a bit cold in the winter, like most of the attics are. We have, besides a centralized heating system, air conditioning in both bedroom and living room. We would advise it to people who love the heat and do not require a very warm home in the winter. We have one bedroom with a child bed too, a bath with the bathtub, the kitchen, where 2 people can eat, (there is no dish-washer), from here you can see the famous Castelli Romani, a big living room outlooking the terrace( with a big table for your lunches). It is a great location for visiting Rome. In the summer time, our living-room becomes the terrace, with beautiful plants and flowers, it is equipped with a table x 6 people, a big beach ombrella and a few chairs, and a small barbecue place, and we like to read or watch TV, or just hang out watching the stars.

Who we are

  1. My husband and I have had the great joy of having a little girl, she is just turning 19 months old. Our life has changed drastically, we are very busy with her. We like outdoor activities, love to do sports, in fact enjoy taking our daughter to the sport club lanciani, where she can run happily from and to the tennis courts. We love films, in fact we have a discrete film library, among our most favorites are "The Planet of Apes", and "24 hours". There are also many books, we are not rich but spend our money in books, films and travelling. We would like to have a bigger space, but it is very rare to find in Rome a top floor apartment with a great terrace like ours,(unless you pay a fortune), so we prefer to stay at our home, because we can spend from April until the end of September outside on the terrace, enjoying the evening breeze, watching the birds fly above our heads, drinking a martini and talk about our future. We love to spend evenings on the terrace, it pays off after a day spent running around. I'm a cartoon writer and a professional Interpreter, my husband has been a handball player, he has won many cups, he works as team manager in the Sport field. He loves all sports.He is a fan of the Lazio soccer team!!!! We like to drink tea and red wine!
