About ME

When I arrived in Rome, over twenty years ago, I decided that I would never allow myself to get used to Rome’s beauty, that I would always look at this incredible city with those enchanted eyes of the “first time”.

That decision stayed with me and later on gave me the idea of offering hospitality to those who come to discover its wonders so that they could enjoy it even more.

I had the good fortune to set up home in a wonderful location, right in the heart of the old city, which has now become an upper-class shopping area, the Spanish Steps, which when became my “Leone 2” and “Leone 3” apartments.

In time I had the opportunity to buy another apartment on the fourth floor of the same building and I moved and lived there for some years with my daughters. This became “Leone 1” when my daughters got married and I moved again to a charming apartment located where the neoclassic sculpor Antonio Canova (1757-1822) had his studio, near the Ara Pacis.

This is how my beautiful luxury apartments came to life. In supervising the renovation, I made sure that all apartments had the latest modern conveniences that we’ve all become so accustomed to and I decorated all three apartments with antique 1700 furniture and marble fireplaces from my parents’ home in Puglia.

What I offer

When I let my apartments as holiday accomodation I aim to offer my guests an extension of my home, to have a taste of my Roman life style.

I hope they enjoy sitting on the living room sofa, gazing out of the windows at the ochre-coloured façade of the princely Palazzo Torlonia, which is so beautifully illuminated at night.

From my windows my guests can follow the comings and goings at the Hotel d’Inghilterra; browse the shops windows as they step out the front door on their way to have a cappuccino at Caffè Greco, just a few yards away in the historical via Condotti; buy fresh fruit at the farmers markets in via Bocca di Leone or via Tomacelli, bread and crispy pizza right out of the oven of the Salumeria FOCACCI on via della Croce on the left hand corner of via Belsiana.

I pride myself in making my guests feel like they’re living in their own home by providing them with all the comforts they are used to… plus a little bit more: they have all the utilities of a comfortable home with the special pleasure of being hidden from the public eye.

I sincerely hope that when my guests leave, their memories will not fade with time and that they would wish to return to the Eternal City as soon as possible.
