Once the home of Raphael (who lived here while painting his masterpieces at the nearby Apostolic Palace), this centuries-old home is as artistic as ever. Entering at street level, you’ll find the third bedroom to the left, which has contemporary paintings and a king-size bed. There’s a giant tapestry in the sitting room, to the right, as well as a pair of anvils that double as eye-catching chairs. In the garden, straight ahead of the entrance, you’ll find ivied walls and a dining table for twelve.
There’s a bathroom just off the sitting room, and up the spiral staircase is the second sitting room, with modern artwork and colourful retro furnishings. The ornately carved dining table is made of Belgian marble, and next door you’ll find another dining table in the large kitchen. Up again are the final two bedrooms – both with ensuites. To the left, the second bedroom has a king-size bed, and to the right, there’s a row of vintage paintings in the master bedroom, along with a vaulted ceiling and a super king bed.
One loveable cat and dog live at this home. The dog won't be around during your stay, but the cat will be around, and the gardener will feed him every day. This home may not be suitable for people with allergies.
The homeowner's gardener will visit everyday and has a key to let himself into the home to access the garden.
There is no hanging space in the bedrooms so we will provide a hanging rail for storage.
Location and nearby infrastructure
Across the Tiber from Rome’s ancient centre, Trastevere is a maze of cobbled streets and café-lined squares. By day, it’s laid back and bohemian. By evening, Romans pour on to the Piazza Santa Maria to fill their glasses. Many places open at noon and don’t shut their doors until late into the night. In the afternoon, head to Via Leone IV for antipasto – small helpings of thin pizza with a glass of wine.
