The Experience

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 has transformed her studio and home into a vibrant B&B, and lives there with her son Ascanio – both are as welcoming as can be. Built around a beautiful sun-dappled courtyard, the house is a showcase for her creations. Two bedrooms, Tinto and Chocolate, are on the ground floor opening to the courtyard (orange trees and magnolias, a marvel in spring) while the Rome room has above 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, Noa.

Luisa and Ascanio's careful attention to detail and customized guest stay is notorious and for this reason the art-filled accommodation has its share of habitué' guests. It can be your umpteenth time in Rome, but Ascanio will lead you to yet another hidden treasure in his beloved city and only to restaurants and shops that he frequents, avoiding the tourists.

Nicole, Sawday's Inspector

This is a beautiful guest house and the studio of artist Luisa Longo, beautifully appointed, comfortable and friendly, with service second to none. Situated in a lively neighbourhood, with many restaurants, there is a tram stop close by for a five-minute ride into the centre (Piazza Venezia), or a ten-minute walk to the Vatican. My wife and I could not have wished for more.
