(1900 square feet) on the second floor, can be connected with Leone 2 and has three bedrooms (two of them with walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom) and three bathrooms. It can accommodate up to 8 people.
Situated on the second floor in the same building where Leone 1 and Leone 2 are located, Leone 3 is a spacious and elegant apartment.
It is possible to connect both Leone 2 and Leone 3 to be rented together.
The floors are tiled throughout with lots of large mirrors which reflect images and light creating a nice sense of space.
In the entrance hall you’ll find a 19th century large mahogany Imperial style sideboard coming from my ancestral home in Puglia.
From the large hall, you can access the living room to the right and to the left the hallway which leads to the laundry room, the kitchen, a small bathroom, a small bedroom and the second large bedroom with en-suite walk-in wardrobe and bathroom.
The hallway has French windows that open on to a small balcony that looks over the inner courtyard. This allows one to bring in fresh air and the warmth of Roman weather.
Four large windows light the living room, overlooking Via Borgognona towards the Spanish Steps, the Hotel d’Inghilterra, via Bocca di Leone and Palazzo Torlonia. The palace is softly lit up at night emphasizing the beautiful warm colour of its walls in contrast with the marble surroundings of the windows thus creating a relaxing atmosphere.
The working gas-fired stonework fireplace comes from my ancestral home in Puglia. Gathered round it are two large white sofas and two armchairs. The hand-made ceiling beams have been uncovered to show how the room was originally created. There is also a shimmering chandelier hung with Bohemian glass.
Here you’ll find some fine antique pieces, such as a sideboard, a desk and a long dining table that will seat eight. The huge Persian carpet, the gold-leaf frames of the mirrors and the paintings create an elegant environment. There is a television with satellite reception.
1st bedroom: next to the living room is the master bedroom with a queen-size bed and a very comfortable single sofa bed. There are two comfortable armchairs, a 19th century Neapolitan desk, a large Persian rug which gives a feeling similar to that of the living room and Neapolitan watercolours on the wall.
The en-suite walk-in wardrobe area is great for storing your suitcases and has shelves and rails to hang your clothes. The walk-in wardrobe leads to a bathroom with a tub equipped with a fixed shower head as well as a hand-held one.
Entering the hallway you’ll find on your left a cubbyhole containing washing machine and hot water tank, on your right the kitchen that has a built-in four burners gas cooker, oven, dishwasher, small fridge/freezer, toaster, Nespresso coffee machine, plates, cutlery and pots and pans.
