Ranked 15-1: Our Critic’s Pick of Rome’s Best Homes

In the Home Critic we Trust.


Ever feel overwhelmed by the sheer number of beautiful homes in Plum Guide’s collection? So many envy-inducing homes, so little time. We thought we’d make your life a little easier by unleashing the unwavering judgment of a Rome Home Critic on the city's collection. Read on for a list of Rome’s best homes, ranked from fifteen to number one.

Small homes can compete with the heavyweights too, they just have to be impeccably designed.

14. Blue Italiano

Distinctive architecture isn’t everything, but it doesn’t hurt.

13. Pewter Flowers

A whimsical home, for you true romantics out there.

12. Vintage Alba

This eclectic mix of modern and vintage isn’t easy to get right, but Vintage Alba isn’t even breaking a sweat.

11. Thyme Garden

At Plum Guide, we don’t have time for half-hearted endeavours. This home goes all in, and that’s why it works.   

10. Mirror Sky

Just the right amount of derelict, with a splash of comfort thrown in for good measure – this is industrial design without compromise.

9. Sistina Charm

Designed by the owner and filled with locally crafted furniture, Sistina Charm had to make it on the list. 

8. Triumph

A little bit of opulence never hurt anyone. 

7. Geometry in Motion

Gold accents, white marble floor and edgy black and white photography – Instagram would be so proud.

6. Lapis Lazuli

We like our pools designed in the style of classical Roman architecture or not at all, thank you very much. 

5. Goose & Gander

You wouldn’t want to let the kids loose with crayons around all this precious art – we’re not sure if everyone would agree that scribbled moustaches add aesthetic value.

4. The Pavilion

Who needs understated when you can have The Pavilion? You might need to take a map with you to explore these sprawling gardens.

3. Terrazza Dorata

We’re in the top three now, and Terrazza Dorata put up a good fight. Effortlessly cool, this bohemian home was an easy choice.

2. Mossy Glen

So close to number one, this home’s show-stopping architecture and eclectic flair make its ranking well-deserved.

1. Pegasus

The true champion. Pegasus makes the most of its high ceilings, natural light and stunning architecture.
