Vetted by our experts

Fendi are one of the great design families in the world, so you can imagine how excited we were to test Mirror Sand. It’s inside the new Alda Fendi Foundation, designed by the superstar architect Jean Nouvel, and right next to the Roman Forums. It works similarly to a hotel, the apartment is geared towards the independence that you get with a proper living room and kitchen. We also liked the ridiculously deep bathtub – it’s a wonderful place to relax after a day in the bustle of Rome. You’ll never want to get out.

Peace of mind guaranteed with every booking.

We promise expert-vetted homes, total transparency and exceptional service.

About Aventino

As one of the city's legendary seven hills, the Aventine plays a central role in the founding mythology of Rome. In ancient times it was a hive of activity – the home of foreign religious cults and dens of iniquity that caused consternation among the powers that be. Today it is a quiet residential neighbourhood full of sprawling mansions, historic churches and lovely gardens. There are no restaurants up here,...

This home is managed by Simone

This home is managed directly by a business. A member of their staff will be your point of contact before and during your stay. Roberto and his team look after the apartments in the Alda Fendi Foundation – one of the most stylish buildings in the city (it was recently renovated by the architectural superstar Jean Nouvel). The level of service they offer is mind-boggling, with pretty much everything you can think of (or certainly that we could think of) on the table.
