There are only good things to say about Franco and Anna. From my initial contact, follow-up correspondences, first face to face encounter, and to our final farewell, these dear folks were always welcoming and amiable. They consistently exceeded my expectations; from location in the serene Latin quarter literal steps from the 628 bus stop or a quick 10 minute walk to Furio Camillo Metro station to pristine and appointed ground level facilities FULLY stocked with amenities—even A/C and laundry are available at a nominal fee—and navigation and orientation, their hospitality truly knows no bounds! Not only did they regularly check in to ensure all my needs were met and confirm my security concerns were all on par, they generously went above and beyond too many times to recount and were forbearing of all my foreign fumblings. Even their precious pets were welcoming! I feel as though I arrived a stranger, but quickly became friends and departed as family. I highly recommend these most fabulous folks if you are looking for helpful hosts and comfortable—everything you can possibly need and more—accommodations, but most importantly, welcoming to the idea of making acquaintance with unforgettable people! Brava and grazie to Homestay for this exceptional experience!
We stayed 6 nights in Roma and had such a lovely time with Franco & Anna! If you are interested in Italian culture and habits and love to chat with your host family, Franco and Anna are the best family for you. They have two lovely dogs and 3 cats, so you must love pets, too . Franco & Anna are a wonderful & lively couple, they take such a good care of their guest. We respect the great attitude of the hosts and felt very welcomed in their cozy home. Franco & Anna take good care of the house and their home is ideal for home stay: your room is very nice and spacious and next to the big & spotless bathroom. We think we got enough privacy, but at the same time the family was always there to turn to. The house situates in a nice area, near park, and it is very easy to travel to the center by bus or by metro to see the beautiful city of Roma. There are many cozy local restaurants nearby, too. We really enjoyed our stay and hope we will meet Franco & Anna again!
Franco and Anna are a wonderful couple, so helpful in directing us to the best places to visit to make the most of our short time in Rome. Animal lovers beware, you will fall in love with the gorgeous Galatea with her beautiful eyes, and Arturo both rescue dogs, and of course the three friendly cats!
