“Charming Cottage, Helpful Owner, Hope to Stay Again”
My husband and I and our two teen boys stayed here for three nights in late June. This lovely little place in a verdant residential neighborhood was perfect for our needs. The owner greeted us when we arrived (which was later than we'd estimated - 'pro-tip': let them arrange that car from the airport) and provided excellent maps, transit advice, directions, restaurant recommendations, and instructions for all of the appliances, including the washing machine, which had very long wash cycle times, but is a big plus when on a longer trip - just plan ahead for air-drying time. In case it is a factor for you, the kitchen is on the small side, but the fridge is good-sized, and there is also a grill. There are food shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. Also, just for information, the bathroom is on the second floor with the master bedroom, while the bunk beds and sofa bed are on the first floor. I wish we'd had more time there to spend enjoying the lovely terraces - hopefully next time we have a chance to visit Rome, L'Orangerie will be available again!
We spent four nights at l'Orangerie over Easter and it was just wonderful, an oasis of peace and calm to return to after battling the hordes in the historical centre. The house is exactly as described and very comfortably accommodated our family of 5. The terrace is a lovely place to relax and soak up the sun and everything we needed - information, coffee making facilities, clean towels and sheets, soft beds - was in ready supply. On arrival, we caught the train from the airport to Trastevere station, then took the tram no. 8 for two stops and walked up the several flights of stairs to Via Ugo Bassi. It was fine doing this with children who are able to walk and without heavy luggage but if you have a stroller, aren't able to walk up uneven stairs and/or have suitcases then I'd recommend catching the bus from the station! We really liked the Gianicolense neighbourhood and enjoyed eating dinner at Il Foccolare and Tutto Qua as well as having breakfast at the Café Vert. For any runners who're considering a stay, the Parco Villa Pamphilj is nearby and offers kilometres of excellent, car free running or walking paths.
“Lovely quite cottage”
This is a really good choice for staying in Rome if you want to see what it's like to live there. A cute, interestingly designed cottage, best for two people, with all the basics and in a quiet safe residential area. I'd say, if you know London, the area is most like Notting Hill 25 years ago, before it was gentrified, as it has large villa-type houses which have been converted into flats. Super little shops nearby; best of all is a street market within five minutes (we rustled up sea bass with ricotta stuffed courgette flowers and saffron risotto). Not cheap though! However, fantastic and good value take-away pizza place nearby too, which we regretfully only found on our last day, and a useful Carrefour a stone's throw away. Be prepared to speak Italian! Giacinto is extremely thorough and efficient and leaves useful guides to the local area at the house and has them available to download. He arranged very prompt and friendly drivers to and from the airport. Since we last visited Rome, the whole city is looking sadly worse for wear due to the recession...with far more litter, graffiti, potholes and shysters than before and literally everywhere..the centre is more exhausting than ever too...so it is very nice to have a clean, secure and quiet bolthole with outside space to come back to in the evenings. A bit of a treck into town (as atop a steep hill) but there is a good taxi rank nearby as well as buses...and taxis actually aren't that expensive. There's a good washing machine at the house off the patio but also a service wash launderette and dry cleaners a block away. While you are there, if you want some fresh air and to get away from even the low season crowds, try going to the Villa adriana and Villa D'Este out of town (Viator arrange good whole day tours there) or to Ostia antica (on a train...only Eur 1.50 each way!). They were the highlights! Also the lovely Villa Doria Pamphili gardens are a ten minute walk away and free. Perfect for joggers.
“Friendly Hosts, Nice House in Good Location”
Francesca and Giacinto were very responsive in working with my wife and I during our trip from the us to Rome. They scheduled a car to pick us up from the airport, and Giacinto was there to greet us when we got to the house. The house is in a working class neighborhood about 5 minutes from the tram station. They are a tough five minutes, though, as you have to descend three flights of stairs. The tram takes you straight into central Rome, and getting around this way was very easy. The house is also close to local shops and restaurants, and about a 15 minute walk from the heart of the trendy section of Trastevere. Also nearby is lovely Gianocolo Hill. Everything was clean, and the essentials were provided. It was nice having a washing machine for our week-long trip. It was rainy during our stay, but I think the patio would have been nice if we would have been lucky enough to catch pleasant weather. Highly recommended if you don't mind the stairs. Great value, and much more authentic feeling than central Rome.
“Great apartment and fantastic, friendly service.”
Lovely apartment with lots of character and a great outdoor terrace in a nice 'local' neighbourhood. Easy to get into the centre of Rome (we walked most days and took the tram a few times too). There is a great walk with amazing views of the city close by too. Service from Francesca and Giacinto was outstanding - very friendly and extremely helpful.
We had such a fabulous time in Rome! The cottage is delightful, clean, comfortable, and in a quiet location. Loved having the terrace to sit and unwind from our days of roaming Rome. We loved the location on the edge of Trastevere, up on the hill. It was nice to have a place that was slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of the centre square, yet we could walk to it anytime we needed the excitement, I would highly recommend l'Orangerie as a choice of accommodation in Rome. For us, we will stay again on our return to Rome. We love L'Orangerie! Also, Francesca and Giacinto are wonderful! They made sure we were well taken care of.
“It made our trip to Rome”
We were excited before we left for Rome as it was our honeymoon and we'd read so many positive comments about L'Orangerie. The reality was so much better. Our hosts arranged for travel from the airport and we were greeted at the house and given all the information we need and some tips on where to go locally and how to get about. This was a great start to our holiday as we felt instantly at home, relaxed and started formulating a plan of what to do on our first days. The house has everything you need. Internet worked perfect; washing machine; air con in the besdroom; lovely outside spaces; seclusion and privacy; a fully fitted out kitchen; fantastic bathroom and shower. It was very clean and it really did feel like a home away from home. The area is great too. You are near Trastevere - at a good pace 15mins - and there is a local supermarket which is 1 min walk away. Down the hill is a tram and bus into central Rome. You are close enough to Trastevere to go out but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of where you stay. The house is very secure and we always felt safe. If you are looking for your perfect stay then look no further. We couldn't have asked for anything more from a lovely house and perfect hosts.
“Great house, your own space without costing the earth”
Very nice place with very friendly owners, they tried hard and made sure everything went well. About 20min walk from the Tiber and up on top of the hill. The house is 5 to 10 min up the hill from the no.8 tram. We had a fantastic time in Rome and the house being really good was a crucial part of that.
“Perfect Cottage in Rome”
My parents and I stayed at L'Orangerie for a week this summer, and we really enjoyed the stay. It is a beautiful cottage placed in a very nice and quiet neighbourhood on the hill of Monteverde just south of the center of Rome. You can walk to the center of Rome in 25-30 minutes. The cottage itself is beautiful with a great terrace, and Giacinto was a very helpful and flexible host. We can only recommend L'Orangerie and hope to stay there again.
“So pleased with this property”
The owners and staff were extremely helpful and attentive with all queries and communications. We loved the property which was exactly as pictured. A very beautifully decorated property with excellent facilities and within walking distance of Historic Rome. We loved this property and would happily return. Giacinto was a very friendly owner.
