It was our first family experience to travel abroad without travel agency. This way is cheaper and gives you a chance to live like an ordinary city in the country you go.
From our first contact with the owner, Rosa, we are very appreciated with how kind, polite and helpful she was, She very fast organised visa support for us and provided us with transfer to the airport and back. Her son, Giulio, who was also very kindly and helpful, was very punctual and he is very good driver! =)
Rosa shows you that you are not a client - you are guest in her warm and sweet house and she really doing her best to make your stay like at home. All requests were done immediately. I would definately say that it is great pleasure for our family to meet such a person as Rosa!
Telling about appartment itself - it is flat on the first floor (not ground) of a building which is part of condominium with perfect private garden full of trees and flowers. One bathroom with 2 windows, 1 big sitting room with kichen part and one bedroom with big bed. Everything in very good condition and working properly. Strong WiFi connection.
There was enough space for 4 people, but one thing you should care of is hot water (if you would stay 3+ persons): there is boiler in the bathroom, so if somebody would use too much hot water in the morning then last person would have cold shower =) And it takes for boiler about 3 hours to become fully hot again.
It is located just 15 min by car from the city center but we decided to use public transport. Just crossing the river you can reach bus route #53 which takes about 45 min to city center but gives you a chance to see city from inside (locations not shown at sghtseeng excursions). Bus route #32 from our river's side is ideal to go to Vatican.
Actually, most important parts of the city are reachable using just one bus which departs from Mancini terminal (15 min. from appartment). Tickets you can buy in most of newspaper and tabacco shops.
Nearby - Pompi for delicious Tiramisu, Mondi - for perfect coffee and gelato, Carefour supermarket on the nearest street ;)) Rosa would also recommend you many places to go and visit!
To conclude, my parents, me and my girlfriend definitely recommend you this vacation rental! Our best wishes to Rosa and Giulio and hope one day meet them in St.Petersburg!
