1. The rustic studio in the centre of Rome
The location here is the big selling point – it’s ten minutes from the Colosseum and most of the major landmarks are within easy reach on foot. But you don’t even need to walk out of the front door to experience a genuine slice of Italy – this charming little studio flat is full of authentic character and charm. It’s got exposed-brick walls, barrel-vaulted ceilings, shelves lined with earthenware pots and a veranda layered with ivy.
