Large and luxe, the Valentina apartment boasts super-elegant location and tasteful décor in Rome's fine Spanish Steps area surrounded by fantastic restaurants, cafes and boutiques.
On the corner of Via Condotti in Rome, the Valentina apartment is in the heart of all that is elegant in the Eternal City. A two minute walk puts you in front of the Spanish Steps, a location that is so popular because it is so central. We enjoy staying in this area for its great designer shopping, people watching, array of restaurants, proximity to popular sites and convenient transportation.
The building mirrors the neighborhood, a proper "palazzo" built about 250 years ago when the Princes Torlonia were amassing their fortunes by managing the fortunes of the Vatican and built the palace across the street.
The apartment adjoins the Renata apartment that, if available, can be rented at the same time for larger groups. There is also the Zegno apartment two floors up.
Space and quiet elegance typify this apartment. Four large windows light the living room, two look up Via Condotti towards the Spanish Steps and two overlook Hotel d`Inghilterra and via Bocca di Leone.
Two sofas are grouped by the working, gas fireplace that features stonework from the ancestral home in southern Italy. The hand-hewn ceiling beams have been exposed to display the room as it was originally designed. Also in the living room are some fine antique pieces, a sideboard, a desk, and a long dining table that will seat eight. The living room has a television with satellite reception.
From the large entry, one can enter the living room, the large bedroom 1 or proceed down the hallway to laundry, kitchen, small bedroom and second large bedroom. The hallway has floor to ceiling French doors that open over a railing onto the internal courtyard. It is a great way of bringing in cooling breezes and the warm Roman weather.
Off the hall is a nook that contains a washing machine across the hall from the well-lit, galley-style kitchen.
