In a part of Rome nicknamed 'Piccolo Londra' (Little London), Casa Fabbrini is a stunning art nouveau villa with an interior straight out of the glossy pages of Elle Decoration – host and owner Simone Fabbrini is, funnily enough, an interior designer. Weathered antique doors are upcycled as uber-chic bedheads; coloured glass lamps light up rooms to romantic perfection; and rich fabrics make bold use of colour.
If all this effortless style is not enough, the apricot-tree-shaded garden will ensure your return.
Located in Rome's Via Veneto area, Casa Barberini offers free WiFi and classically furnished accommodation with parquet floors. Rooms at the Barberini come with air conditioning, a fridge and free toiletries. Most have a private bathroom. An Italian breakfast of croissants and cappuccino is provided daily. Barberini Metro is 150 metres from the property. The Spanish Steps are a 7-minute walk away.
