As far as luxury B&Bs in Rome are concerned, this gorgeous guest-house can’t be beaten. Light and airy rooms open out onto a central terrace, where guests can sip an aperitivo among potted palms. Thick, ivy-clad walls keep the bustle of Trastevere away. Luisa Longo, the artist and owner, has decorated the rooms herself, and all the art is available to purchase. The royal-blue bedroom, one of just three doubles, boasts its own secluded patio. Each room has a DVD player and guests are invited to raid the large collection of films on offer. Tea and cakes are served in the afternoon (if requested) and a buffet breakfast is laid out every morning. Book well in advance.
