About the property

Modern Conversion Of Historic Building. 2Beds, 2Baths Sleeps 6

It’s not often you get the chance to stay in a brand new, architect & interior designer’s apartment so grab this opportunity while you can.

La Vecchia Vetreria, (The Old Glassworks) is in a quiet private courtyard surrounded by great bars, restaurants and the best wine merchant in Rome with its own tasting room and restaurant.

Furnished with exquisite taste and a keen eye for quirky detail this stunning multi-level apartment has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, one en suite, and with the sofa bed in the drawing room, can comfortably sleep six.

The living room is bright and airy with plenty of natural light and contains comfortable but stylish modern and antique furniture and some beautiful pieces of art. Recently the apartement has been upgraded with a Sky TV satellite service which provide sports, films and news.

The dining area has a beautiful wooden antique table that seats six and is ideal for entertaining.

The modern open plan fully equipped kitchen comes complete with all the basics you need so you won’t have to stock up on things like olive oil, spices and dish washing liquid if you’re only there for the weekend.

The main bedroom along the corridor has a double bed and its en-suite bathroom has a spa like shower and deep tub to relax in.

The second bedroom is up a small set of open stairs (N.B. perhaps not suitable for elderly people or young children).

The second bathroom has luxurious fittings and a great shower.

The flooring throughout the house is parquet.

There is air conditioning and Free Internet WiFi throughout.

About Sergio & Antonella

I am an architect who specialises in preserving the beauty and romance of historic buildings and Roman ruins combining it with state of the art high tech architectural materials. My wife Antonella is a manager and a mother of two beautiful sons, Fiamma and Giovanni. She runs the hospitality of our apartement with care and with a special eye on guest's needs.

Sergio & Antonella purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Sergio & Antonella chose Rome

Why us? Simply, our apartments provide more amenities, more space, and more overall comfort than a comparable hotel - and we're able to offer better rates! The fully-functioning kitchens, comfortable lounge rooms, and quality bedding & linen that our apartments boast allow you to enjoy Rome without compromising on lifestyle. To experience Rome in first-class surroundings, please contact us at any time.

We boast a free high-speed (WiFi) internet connection, a television, and all other modern conveniences. queries or bookings.

We bought our apartment because we were able to design it to our own specifications and keep many of the original features.

We also love the area, it is extremely quiet but a short walk to the city centre, the main museums, beautiful squares, churches and the railway station. It is also a 2 minute walk from Trimani, the best wine shop in Rome with a fabulous restaurant next door.

The welcoming private courtyard when you arrive.

The peace and quiet once you are inside

The amazing no-expense-spared design and features of the apartment.

Stunning apartment with contemporary design

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is beautiful with the old arches, wooden flooring, elegant tiled bath and shower. All the cooking dishes and glassware you would need if you decided to cook in and not eat in any of the wonderful restaurants around!!! The owners are charming and available for any questions.

Outstanding property, nice amenities and the nicest, most considerate owners and people you can meet

  • 5 of 5

Way too late in writing this review but the stay was perfect...I didn't go back to the listing to recall the names of the owners but they were great, from greeting us when we arrived, helping us with restaurants, things to do, places to go, assisting us with airport transportation, etc. The apartment itself was spacious, modern yet blending in with the original stone/brick construction of the building. Master suite was beautiful, dining and den very comfortable. We didn't use the upstairs loft because the couple traveling with us cancelled so I don't recall much about it other that it is open, overlooking the living and dining areas.

The location is near city center/shopping and requires a bit of walking to get to some of the main archeological sites but Rome is a city for walking and we enjoyed the exploring (we never tried public transportation).

All in all, a great stay and would very much like to return...

Beautiful, comfortable, great location -- perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We simply can't say enough great things about this rental. The owners have taken such care in the design, furnishings, and art and appointments of this apartment. It was so nice to stay in a rental where you felt like the owners truly cared about their guests having a comfortable and luxurious visit. Antonella is the perfect hostess--so helpful, responsive, and kind. The apartment itself has a wonderful location in a very nice, quiet part of Rome. It is located close to two metro lines. The apartment is also within fairly easy walking distance of most popular sites. Trimani Wine Bar, Gelateria La Romana, and ReBasilica are all terrific restaurants within a block of the apartment. We can't wait to return to Rome, and when we do, we will re-book this apartment without hesitation!

Gorgeous, safe and centrally located in Rome.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 3 days as a family of 5. It’s a beautifully building and the exposed walls add charm to the condo. We truly enjoyed all the comforts of the apartment. The kitchen is nicely updated and the en-suite tub was fantastic. The condo is centrally located in a nice area of Rome and walking distance to the subway. We highly recommend this condo.

Rome’s famous churches, fountains, squares, museums and monuments start almost from the moment you walk out the door.

Walk in one direction past the Sir Basil Spence designed British Embassy to Michelangelo’s Porta Pia.

In the other direction you find the stunning Piazza della Repubblica off which is the equally stunning Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri Basilica, whilst Santa Maria della Vittoria, the finest Baroque church in Rome (possibly Europe) on Via XX Settembre and Via Nazionale are also all within a few minutes walk.

Keep going and you’ll be at the Quirinale, Trevi Fountains, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, Campo de' Fiori and Colosseum and all the major sights in a matter of minutes.

The apartment is right next to the British Embassy.
