This stunning historic residence was once the home of Prince Stanislaw Poniatowsky, a Polish nobleman, politician and diplomat of the eighteenth century. Upon emigrating to Italy, Poniatowsky fell in love with Rome and decided to make the city his home. Therefore he commissioned the construction of his house to a famous architect of that time named Giuseppe Valadier.
A famous family of antique dealers bumped into this very charming property (a wing of the historic residence), bought it and respectfully renovated it. In particular, you can admire some of the marvellous antique frescoes that they managed to bring back to life.
The courtyard of the building is full of history: precious Roman marble sculptures are a fantastic discovery. The entrance to this Rome luxury rental apartment is located on the first floor (no elevator).
The living room features comfortable light beige sofas, armchairs, a coffee table, a Sky 42″ TV, a DVD player, and a lovely collection of DVDs. From the living room, it is possible to access a lovely private balcony with a small table and two chairs, ideal for a romantic aperitif.
In this apartment you will have access to Internet Wi-Fi, and central heating. For the hotter months, guests will also have acces to an air conditioning system (2 splits in the 2 bedrooms + 1 split in the living room).
The fully equipped kitchen has a gas stove, oven, toaster, Nespresso machine, dishwasher, fridge, and freezer. Of course, all the necessary tableware and kitchenware is also provided.
There are two double bedrooms. Each offers a king size bed, flat-screen TV, an en-suite bathroom, wardrobes and a safe. The larger bedroom features enchanting frescoes with warm shades, an antique Cotto floor and a Sky 42″ TV. Its en-suite bathroom has a shower box.
The smaller bedroom also has a lot of charm and there is a 27″ TV. The en-suite bathroom features a large bathtub. Last but not least, a ravishing terrace with a wooden table, chairs and plants complete this recommended apartment. At the apartment, you will also find a small laundry room (washing/drying machine) and a Concierge Service thanks to the Manet Mobile device.
The residence sits just a few meters away from the Spanish Steps, at Via della Croce. This is a beautifully elegant area, and has some great shopping opportunities, both high street and designer. Its restaurants and bars attract a refined and stylish crowd that gather to chat and catch up, to see and be seen.
This district backs onto the lively and more laid-back Piazza Navona and Campo de’ Fiori areas. Here you will find many restaurants and bars that offer a friendly and laid-back atmosphere.
Between these two areas you will also find the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon. South of the Spagna area you will also find the Colosseum, Piazza Venezia, and the Roman Forum.
Make sure to also visit the Villa Borghese Park behind the Piazza del Popolo. This beautiful park offers a shady green oasis, and sweeping views over the Prati district from its Pincio Terrace.
