Family Home, Sleeps 5, Pets Welcome, Roman Aqueduct In Garden, Near Metro
Rome seduces you with its vibrant, chaotic, beautiful and loud charms. Casa Felice is a charming bungalow which allows you to enjoy the city as a Roman.
Typically "central flats" are apartment blocks, where parking is difficult and it's crowded and on a hot summer's night with everyone's windows open, there is a cacophony of noise, Casa Felice is the ideal alternative. It is a not a villa outside the city, where you hear the crickets, but travelling to the center takes too long and you feel isolated. It is the ideal compromise.
A home that can accommodate 5 guests and pets, near a metro (20 mins into town) set in a genuine Roman neighborhood with all the local amenities and parks within walking distance. And as an extra bonus in the garden there is a 600 year old Roman Aqueduct.
Casa Felice has a paved garden area around the full circumference of the property, boasts (for most of the year!) a colourful array of potted plants, citrus trees and shrubs. The backdrop to the house the imposing aqueduct, which you can touch from the garden, and there are 2 BBQs. Upstairs, sun lovers can enjoy sunbathing and al fresco dining on a 90sqm2 private roof terrace, equipped with a table, chairs, a sun lounger.
The house itself is modern, comfortable and has a terrace which allows The front door leads directly into the modern, stylish and well equipped kitchen with large wooden breakfast bar and dining table (seating for 6). Behind the kitchen, a short corridor leads to the bathroom and the master bedroom.
The bathroom is equipped with a shower, a bidet, a wash basin, a toilet, towel rails and large mirror.
A doorway to the rear of the sitting room leads to a study/guest room with fold-down tables which can double as a guest bedroom with a double futon. (note: no door!) The room has bookshelves and a large selection of books to peruse, in English, Italian and German. You will also find a radio/CD player and a large and varied selection of CDs.

“Casa Felice” is a gated, detached property situated on a no-through road which leads directly to the park of 'Torre del Fiscale'. An archaeological park of the Appian Way, Torre del Fiscale is a sizeable green space scattered with ancient ruins including the 600 year old working aqueduct Felice. The park is perfect for strolling, jogging, cycling (cycle paths), picnics, ball games, dog walking, bird watching or just sitting and relaxing! A local museum, an organic restaurant, bicycle hire and a children's playground are also available here.
Within short walking distance you will find a 3 km stretch of local shops, including supermarkets, boutiques, chemists, hair salons, green grocers and markets. (This is a great place to shop, away from the tourist prices in the centre). From here you can access both Metro line 'A' and regular bus services, via which the many sights and delights of Rome are only a short trip away.

"Clean, well equipped, comfortable and accessible"
The house was exactly as was described in the advert, so there were no nasty surprises. The owner had left us wine and basic food which was a nice touch. We had everything we needed within walking distance of the house, so on the days we didn't fancy going into to town, we still got to live like the locals rather than tourists which is what we wanted. We had traveled down by car, but used the metro most of the time, which cost very little, but closed around 11pm weekdays, but there was a night bus, all be it crowded.
