Our Houses

Describe your house or apartment. How big is it? What rooms are there? Is there a garage? Is there an infinity pool? Are there great views of the ocean? Of the Colosseum? Tell us all about it.

Here is Giovanna’s description of her house:

Giulia writes:

My flat is in Pigneto, a very nice district of Rome, with a pedestrian island. My house is small: there is a living room with a kitchenette, a bedroom and a bathroom. The flat is on the ground floor and outside there is a small courtyard where I put aromatic plants.

I like my house and my district in particular but my flat is much too small for me, my boyfriend and my dog. Fortunately  my boyfriend’s parents have given us a bigger house. The new flat is near the old house and we are very happy about this.

    My flat is in a quiet street in Albano Laziale. It’s on the third floor and has two bedrooms, one with two single beds and other with a double bed, one bathroom with a shower, a living room with sofa and a kitchen with fireplace. The kitchen ( 10 square metre ) has a table with four chairs so you can eat there. The bedrooms have a great view and you can see the public gardens and when the days are sunny you can see the sea. My flat has a little terrace and in the summer days we can eat out. The flat has a good exposure, the sun turn around from morning to the evening. It’s a 5/10 minutes from shops and railway station so you can arrive to Roma Termini after 54/50 minutes. The flat is a 5/10 minutes walk from the city centre.

      Nice one Luana! a few corrections:
      “I live in a nice flat near the center of Rome and three minutes from the Caffarella park”

      Note that it’s “centre” in British and “center” in American – but it’s not a mistake as far as I am concerned.

      “It is on the third floor”
      “there are two bedrooms with double beds
      “Here there is a small kitchen”

      I hope these help. More corrections later!

      Many thanks for this franco! Here are a couple of small corrections:

      “My flat is in Poggiofranco a big neighbourhood in Bari”
      “It is [situated] in the most elevated area of Bari”

      That’s a bit clearer than “highest”. And you don’t need the word “situated”.
      “The flat has an independent heating and air conditioning system” – check the spelling!
      There is a big terrace of about 70 square meters”

      Many thanks for this nice piece.

    Hi Mike,
    my flat is in Monte Mario, a very nice district of Rome. It is a very green neighborough and quite. Sometimes, from my two terrace I hear the birds singing. The apartment is located in a 5-storey building, built about 30 years ago. My flat is on the 2nd floor and it’s small: there is a living room, a small kitchen with all white furniture, a bedroom and a bathroom. The thing I like most in my home is the library that there is in living room. Very nice for me are the terrace: I planted some beautiful begonias. I live with my boyfriend Matteo and we are very happy about our home.

      Hi valentina! Many thanks for this. Just one correction for now:
      “neighborough ” should be “neighbourhood”.

      I hope this helps!

    Hi Mike,
    I live on the first floor of a small block of flats,in monte mario area ,precisely in cortina d’ampezzo avenue.It is located in a residential area althought quite near to city centre.unfortunately this area is not very well connected with public transportation;in fact i have to take the car if I am in hurry.It is a very green neighborough and I like very much but if I need to buy something it takes more then a km to reach a shopping area!My flat has a beautiful balcony from which I can see almost the whole northern part of the city.
    I live by myself so my place is not very big; it is a very quiet one bedroom flat and overlooks a beautiful garden. I can park my car in a private parking lot, and considered that in Rome it is very difficult to park the car, I find it very comfortable!

    I live in a flat in the beautiful district of Rome – Aventine. The apartment is located in a 5-storey building, built about 20 years ago. My flat is on the 3rd floor. It is large and spacious. There are: three bedrooms, three bathrooms, two studies and a large living room. Of course, there is also a kitchen with a dining room. My flat occupies the entire floor and has a terrace around the flat with a view of the park. I have a garage in the same building. The flat is equipped with central heating and air conditioning. I like my flat because it is spacious and bright. It is very well located, close to tram, bus, subway and train stations. For me it is very important also that my flat is very near to my work – just 10 minutes walk. I am happy to live in Rome.

    My flat is situated in the heart of Rome, in the vicinity of Piazza Buenos Aires and Villa Borghese. It is in the ground floor of an elegant building.

    It has a spacious bedroom with a specific room dedicated to the wardrobe, a louminous living room, a functional bathroom and a modern kitchen. The main rooms have air conditioning. Unfortunaley there isn’t a fireplace, but fortunately the winter in Rome is no frigid.
    All the rooms have high ceilings and windows.

    The neiborhood is safe and very close to some of the main attractions of the city, like Villa Borghese, Via Veneto, Quartiere Coppede and Porta Pia.

    The house is ideal for a couple who would have the comfort to live in the center of the city, without give up to the tranquillity.

    I live with my family in a large flat in a southeastern suburb of Rome. It is exactly situated in the Appio Claudio neighbourhood between Via Tuscolana and Parco degli Acquedotti.
    It’s a cosy 150 square-metre flat on the third floor of a small building with a lift. It is very bright since it has a south-east exposure. It has a large hall communicating with a double living-room with a balcony. In this room there is a big glass table, a comfy sofa, a large TV and a high bookcase with a small ladder. The kitchen is big, modern and well-equipped; near the kitchen, there is a closet. The flat has two bathrooms: the small one is in the living area while the big one is in the sleeping area. Three spacious bedrooms have the access on a very long balcony. With the exception of kitchen and bathrooms that have floors and walls made of stone, the other rooms have wooden floors.
    The Appio Claudio district is a lively and populous neighbourhood with plenty of shops, restaurants, gyms and other facilities. It is also near many malls. The flat is walking distance from Parco degli Acquedotti, two subway stations and Cinecittà Studio.
    This flat is perfect for a family. In the basement of the building, there are the cellars and the garage area where you can directly take the lift that is very useful when you come back home after the shopping.

    The neighbourhood is quiet during the night and crowded with people who goes around for shopping during the day. It is strategically situated at 230m from the “Numidio Quadrato” tube station so it is extremely easy reach the city centre in a few minutes.

    The house is ideal for families or for two couples. It’s a no-smoking house and no pets are allowed.

    The house is perfectly situated in the heart of Salento, the far south of Apulia. Exactly it’s on the coastal street SP91, which has a spectacular view of the Ionic Sea.

    It’s a cosy 80-square-metre house on the ground floor, 1.5 meter above the street level. It has a spacious living room with a kitchen area, one bathroom and two matrimonial bedrooms, one small but comfortable and one bigger, which has also a single bed. All the rooms have high ceilings and big windows, so they are very bright. In the garden there are a BBQ to cook outside and a big table; there is also an outdoor shower, where guests can wash themselves using water warmed up with solar energy.
    There is a garage in the basement with rooms for two cars.

    The house is in the pretty neighborhood of Marina di Felloniche, well stocked of restaurants and cafes. A short drive from Leuca, the real heel of the Italian boot.
    The nearest beach is only 5-minute walk, and there you can go swimming in a crystalline sea.
    For the rest, guests need a car, because of the absence of public transport.

    The house is ideal for a family who needs open space for the children and, at the same time, silence to rest, far away from city noises and stress.

    My flat is very quiet. It’s on the fifth floor. It has a hall, a living room, a kitchen, two bedroom and two bathroom. The kitchen is too small! There is a terrace and a great view of the big front garden. It’s 10 minutes’ walk from the Labaro Station and about 20 minutes by train from Piazza del Popolo in the centre of Rome.
    I like my flat because it’s very sweet! 🙂
