Via Garibaldi 83, 00153 Rome,
Cross the Tiber into maze-like Trastevere. Turn right for boisterous bars, left for cobblestoned tranquillity. Here lies a place that is small and special – an artistic find behind solid green doors. Fashion and textiles designer Luisa, as welcoming as can be, has transformed her studio and home into a vibrant three-bedroom B&B. Built around a beautiful sun-dappled courtyard, it is a showcase for her creations. Two bedrooms, Orange and Green, are on the ground floor opening to the courtyard (orange trees and magnolias, a marvel in spring) while the Rome room is above with its own big terrace, heaven for honeymooners. Walls are clean and minimalist, bathrooms mosaic'd and sparkling; splashes of colour come from hand-painted organza. Yours to retire to – a winter treat – is a salon with stylish settees and books on art and Rome. Charming staff, friendly and discreet, serve breakfast at an oval dining table surrounded by silk panels: fresh fruits, breads, meats, eggs how you like them, lavender shortbread, baked peaches; a wonder. All this in Rome's old heart – and Luisa's lovable dog, Tinto.
