It's no wonder the reviews for this property are so high. The cottage was for us the ideal place to stay in Rome. It's absolutely charming and well maintained. The mattress in the main bedroom is super comfortable. The air conditioning works well, and the house was perfectly quiet. There are several seating areas outside (patio and balcony), and the cottage is surrounded by some amazing mansion-like houses. The kitchen is small, but perfectly equipped.
The neighborhood is really wonderful, away from the crowds and noise of central Rome, but with public transportation into Trastevere and to the center easy. Mostly we took the stairs down to catch the tram. We shopped at the nearby doc market as well as the outdoor market. You must try the gelato at La Gourmandise--amazing.
Giacinto was very kind and helpful with information and made checking in easy.
We absolutely loved staying here, didn't want to leave, and would return again in an instant. One of our favorite stays.
This was the prefect location for our family-of-4 trip to Rome! The cottage was just great. I loved being in a true Italy neighborhood and still so closed to some wonderful sights and places to eat. We mostly walked everywhere but had plenty of transportation options if we had wanted. I just loved this little place!!
This was our third time staying at l'Orangerie, and again, it did not disappoint. It's a great place for families with older children. The owners are responsive and helpful and provide detailed information on everything you might have questions about. There are quirks here, as with any character home. I would counsel that this would not be a place for those with mobility issues due to multiple levels and an upstairs bathroom. For us, the vintage charm, location, sunny terrace, and ease of working with the owners put it at the top of our list when we visit Rome.
It was sweltering in Rome the few days we were visiting and the cottage was a welcome retreat. Location suited us very well in a quiet neighbourhood with lovely restaurants, bars and supermarket/ bank type facilities. Bus / tram ride into centre of Rome, taxi out to airport. Cottage itself had all the facilities one needs, small but functional kitchen, and some air conditioning (main bedroom only). Very quiet and had a real 'safe' feel. Would happily rent again.
We had an excellent stay here 2 summers ago. We traveled with our two adult children as our daughters graduation trip from University. The walk up to the property was very pleasant, despite the many steps to the top of the hill.. those with limitations would be unhappy. Be we loved it! Close to bus stops (bottom of hill) ;) , bakeries, eateries and groceries.. (bottom of the hill) :) house was perfect! Very well kept and had lots of personality. Owner arranged for us to be picked up at airport.. and that was wonderful! Highly recommend! It was a great base to see the sights for a week in Rome.
The quiet Orangerie was just perfect for our two weeks in Rome and the owner very helpful. The neighbourhood offers everything one needs.
Just returned from our second stay at this lovely and affordable rental. Giacinto is a fantastic host, who keeps the place sparkling clean. He can even arrange transportation to and from the airport. Looking forward to a third return visit when fate allows.
