In warm weather you can have tea under orange trees in the quiet central courtyard, in winter by a roaring fire under the arch of an ancient artisan’s workshop. Each evening, this space transforms into a private bar where regional wines and finger foods are served – a great place to meet other guests and chat with utterly delightful owners, Paolo and Valentina.
Breakfast on fresh breads, pastries and cakes from the local bakery, take a book up to one of the comfy chairs on the sunroof, admire pretty stencils and street scenes by a local artist on the walls. You’re a block from the Piazza di Santa Maria with its ancient church. Bring walking shoes or borrow a bike: you can cross the bridge for Campo de’ Fiori, turn right for the Forum and Colosseum.
Trastevere is famous for its trattorias and outdoor places to eat; return to ground floor bedrooms and family suites set around the quiet courtyard
