Perched on the first floor of a 16th-century vine-clad building, you’re a carefree sun-drenched stroll away from the throbbing baroque heart of Rome. This bewitching apartment is all wooden beams, parquet and tiled floors and white walls crammed with eclectic art and furniture collected by the owner, Emanuela. While she travels the world for half the year, her characterful Italian bolthole is yours. The bright, comfortable bedroom overlooks a small square with its own church, cafés and a Michelin-starred restaurant. In the bathroom – a paean to white marble – there are more pictures on all sides. Proximity to such a wealth of amazing eateries means the corner kitchenette is almost surplus to requirements – but everything you need is there, with a small dining area made for two just past the doorway. The cosy living room is book lined, bulging with personality and objects d’art, the perfect place to languidly sip an aperitivo as you recover from the rigours of the day. For couples searching for La Dolce Vita, this could be the place.
