    We stayed in Rome for 3 nights. Booking arrangements were easy and when we arrived they checked us in and spent time with us reviewing a map with all the major tourist attractions.
    They recommended we go to Travestere for a more authentic Italian dinner and we were very pleased with our night out. I would recommend our apartment, it is clean, beds are comfortable and the location is perfect for easy walking to all the major spots or if you prefer there is a taxi stand only a few minutes away. There is free wifi and the kitchen is well equipped.

    The apartment was perfect for my family of 5. We reached out to rent one apartment that was already booked, but Doretea suggested the one we stayed in and it was above and beyond the original one. A little loud on Friday and Saturday night, but honestly it didn’t bother us. Perfect location to everything. Doretea arranged pick up and drop off at the airport. Her colleague went over all the details and recommended restaurants. We felt we could reach out to them if we needed to, however there was no need.

    We stayed at the Giulia-Navona apartment in Rome, and it could not have been more perfect. The apartment itself was lovely — spacious and well-equipped, in an elegant building with an elevator. The living room was attractive, the bedroom was very comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed, and the bathroom was excellent. The location was close to the beautiful Piazza Navona, an outdoor produce market, and lots of shops and restaurants.

    We stayed in the Apartment TREVI III for 7 days. Read the awesome reviews of this place, they are all correct!! Could not have had a better stay. Location is more than ideal. Close to all sites when walking. Taxi stand, metro, bus stops, Trevi fountain and market are all within steps. The best restaurant we went to while we were there, was next door, with live entertainment! I went with my elderly mother(walking was an issue), sister and daughter and it met our criteria perfectly. Dorotea and Giorgio were great to deal with. Apartment is perfect and has everything. Quiet, stocked, lift, etc. (Only has small espresso coffee maker.) Beds are a little hard, but you may prefer that. Has feather pillows, which I love! also foam if you don’t. Only has Italian TV, but Wifi was fast and we watched movies on it, there is a great area to lounge. If you needed something, I’m sure Giorgio will help you out, but we had no problems. Book it!

    Acabamos de pasar 5 días en el puente de Octubre en el apartamento y la experiencia ha sido fantástica, el apartamento está muy bien situado en pleno centro, a un paso de Plaza Navona con enlaces perfectos de taxi o bus, aunque realmente casi no nos hizo falta porque fuimos a todos los sitios andando, Roma es una ciudad para pasear y disfrutar de su ambiente y de sus múltiples monumentos, iglesias, museos… restaurantes. El apartamento es tal y como muestran las fotos, amplio, limpio, completamente equipado, tranquilo y con muy buena wifi . Giorgio fue un guía fantástico que nos hizo muy buenas recomendaciones y con quien pudimos descubrir una Roma diferente con una ruta que os recomiendo hacer . Sólo puedo decir que sin duda volveríamos a repetir la experiencia . Si teneis que visitar Roma.. esta es sin duda una buena elección.

    We are a family of 5 with 3 teenage children and stayed in Lucia Navona apartment for a week at the end of October. The apartment is extremely well located, central and within easy walking distance to all the major sights. It is comfortable and very well appointed. Giorgio was waiting for us in the apartment on our arrival and is extremely welcoming and helpful, he gave us great advice on where to eat locally – pizzeria Baffetto is a must!
    We were very happy with this accommodation and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

    Hello Dorotea,
    I wrote a review and believe I posted it on one of the travel sites. But here goes again for your posting:

    Having spent nine nights at 54 rue Accueil we can assure you it would be hard to find a more convenient location. It’s just around the corner from the Musee D.Orsay and has easy access to both the RER and Metro.The multiple and varying eating places in the neighborhood are uniformly good. We highly recommend it.

    I was in Rome one week ago with a group of 24 people from Turkey and Dorotea and her staff organized for us a really beautful dinner for us
    We spent a nice evening in a roman house where the lady, expert cook, prepared for us a delicius Italian dinner
    Was a grat experience almost for all of us that really like the italian food
    The vine was excellent as the food !!
    We eat “spaghetti cacio e pepe”, risotto, roman artichokes, tiramisù, etc
    I hope to return again for another dinner !!
    Thank you Dorotea !!!

    My husband and I stayed in Angelica for a month, and we were nothing but pleased with both the apartment and our dealings with Dorotea and Georgio. Everything was arranged in an efficient, professional and friendly manner, and we found the apartment to be exactly as represented. We loved the building and the neighborhood; and being able to trust that everything would go smoothly with our accommodations went a long way toward making our visit to Rome a truly amazing time.

    This apartment was a real treasure for the family. Checking-in straight off a long-haul flight we immediately found a comfortable oasis within the centre of Rome, from which to then explore and return over the coming days.

    The location is fantastic, given the Trevi Fountain is a favourite with the kids; but also to access everything in Rome by Foot or by Subway.
    Close to fresh produce markets and a supermarket also makes a big difference, with some great shops with metres of the apartment door.

    The apartment it self was very comfortable, clean, and very spacious for the family (3 children, 2 adults). Having been to Rome now six times, as well as other key cities around Italy, this apartment was a real standout. We couldn’t fault it.

    Communication was quick, friendly and professional, as was check-in and check-out.

    Will will definitely be back to this apartment on our next trip.

    Many thanks.

    I stayed in the Laura Monti apartment close to Santa Maria Maggiore for almost two weeks, and it was perfect for my needs – close to Roma Termini to get around Rome, and walking distance to Via Urbana and Via dei Serpenti for great restaurants. The apartment itself was quiet, with all the amenities (cooking range, refrigerator, washing machine) for my two week stay. A great place to stay in Rome.

    Wir hatten eine herrliche Zeit in Vietri. Die Wohnung und Alessandra haben mit Sicherheit dazu beigetragen, dass unser Aufenthalt unvergesslich sein wird.
    Atemberaubender Ausblick
    Nähe zum Strand
    Idealer Ausflugsstandort
    Es gibt tatsächlich nichts auszusetzen. Alessandra wohnt direkt darunter, so dass man sie jederzeit kontaktieren konnte. Ihr Mann empfahl uns ein naheliegendes Restaurant (5 Minuten) mit fantastischem Panorama.
    Ich fragte nach einem Transfer vom Flughafen. Das Angebot war am günstigsten und sie waren pünktlicher als wir!
    Ein sehr sehr gutes Gesamtpaket.

    My 3 week stay at “Laura Monti” was perfect in every way. The photos and the description of the apartment are completely accurate. The apartment was well equipped, well maintained, extremely clean and quiet. It was a pleasure to do business with Dorotea. She is very kind and attended to all arrangements efficiently and in a timely fashion. The same was true of Fabrizio who handled all on site matters. I highly recommend this apartment and I am happy to know that there is such a dependable source for further lovely rentals with Dorotea and Home and Boat Italy.

    This is the second year in a row that we stayed in the Amalfi Apartment and would not want to stay anywhere else . Dorotea had someone greet us on arrival and everything was wonderful . Center of town and very quiet . I can’t wait to return . Thank you Dorotea for everything .

    We had a wonderful week with our two kids in the apartement Dora Trevi. Dorotea organized a great transfer from the airport for uns and we were kindly welcomed by Fabrizio at the house. He showed us around, explained everything and also had some tips for nice restaurants. During our stay he was always available via WhatsApp for questions. We did only use that to organize our departure, but it was great to know he was just a short message away.

    The apartment was nicely and cozily furnished, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen was extraordinarily well equipped. There were enough plates, cutlery and pots, which made our self-catering quite easy. There is a small supermarket near by, which also provided everything we needed.

    The house itself is located just a few steps away from Trevi fountain, so we wandered there every day at different times – the best time was as early as 7h in the morning 🙂
    Downstairs was also a nice gelateria and we used to get our icecream there and enjoy it in the house’s beautiful and quiet courtyard, which was always a great contrast to the busy city.
    On the day we had to leave, Dorotea kindly let us stay two more hours than usual, because our flight was not before the afternoon.

    We definitely recommend the apartement as well as the whole city – all family members consider it the best holiday ever, even if it included a lot of walking, which is something at least the kids are not into so much. But Rome offers so many fantastic and exciting sights, that they did not complain at all.

    We stayed in Via delle Carrozze in Rome in October in an apartment with 3 bedrooms. The location was excellent, lots of good family owned trattorie nearby, quiet, safe and nice streets around us. Even our teenage grandson was happy with the Wifi. The kitchen was perfect, beds good but the showers smallish. Thank you Dorothea and Fabrizio for all the help you gave us.

    WE have stayed in House Dora in the town of Amalfi now 5 times. The apartment is wonderful. Very clean, we are 3 women who stay and at all times feel safe. The area is quiet right up from the Amalfi hotel and the steps of a winding alley. Very near restaurants, shopping, marketing, boutiques, bakeries and take out seafood stores.
    Dorotea takes very good care to see that we are met, and provides us with a person and cell phone number for just in case. We love Amalfi and have used the town as a base to explore the entire Amalfi coast…It is our “Home Away from Home”….we dream of when we are not there……pictured exactly as it is when you arrive…

    Dear Dorotea

    You are an outstanding host and your apartment was fabulous!
    We had such a great time there!
    And your helper, Amedeo, was wonderful! He was very responsive to all our needs.
    One day, the fuse in the upstairs bathroom blew, and he was over within minutes to fix it!
    Everything about your apartment and the patio was absolutely wonderful

    If we return to Amalfi, we’ll definitely be contacting you again to reserve your apartment.

    Many thanks again,
