My personal refuge from Silicon Valley stress. In the Historical Center of Rieti, a charming central Italy medieval town, is part of a 16th century building, in 1830 remodeled as a theater. Restructured in 1998, not perfect but comfortable & charming

The space

This is my personal refuge in Italy when I go back home. My family owned it for almost 170 years. The kernel is a 16th century ancient building, some walls are even older since we found frescos dated back to the 14th century. Owned by the Corona counts till 1830, it was acquired to remodel it in a outdoor theater. When the theater went out of business in the mid 19th century, my family ancestors bought it. I restructured this apartment in 1998 right before moving to US. The place is not perfect and requires some extra work. I still have to mount some appliqués so in some rooms bulbs are hanging from the wall and furnitures are the one I put together over the years. Nevertheless the place is cozy, welcoming and charming. The architecture and the layout are comfortable with cotto on the floor and exposed wooden/bricks roof . There is an amazing view of the old theater auditorium floor and boxes (now a terrace) just recently renovated. Also from the window you'll be able to see S. Domenico bell tower which is the biggest church of the town.

Guest access

The apartment features a huge main bedroom with a Double bed, a smaller bedroom with a Double bed too, one in-room bathroom with shower, one bathroom with hot tub and double sink, living room with dining table and fireplace, and kitchen with super high ceiling. There is also an office, but I will reserve it for my personal stuff storage. There is a LED TV with SKY service in the living room and a small LCD TV in the main bedroom for free TV channels. WiFi is available and complementary.

Interaction with guests

You will have the place for yourself. You'll pick up the keys from my parents who live downstairs and you'll be on your own. No breakfast is provided, but you can prepare your own in the kitchen.

This apartment is really really beautiful and very well equipped for a comfortable stay. The photos on the website don't do it justice. It is located on the second floor of an historic building in Rieti's historic centre and overlooks a beautiful courtyard 2 floors below. We were two couples and stayed 5 nights. Carlo's father who lives on the first floor, welcomed us and showed us around. We dont speak Italian but his daughter in law helped us out with directions and instructions for applianes. Each couple had their own spacious bedroom and sparkling bathroom. The beds were big and very comfortable. There was a wardrobe in one bedroom but not in the other, so we shared hanging space. We didn't cook, but the kitchen is extremely well equipped to make gourmet meals if you wanted. The living area has a dining area and sitting area and TV. One of the bedrooms has a second TV. Rieti is a lovely town set in lovely surroundings. The apartment is in a great location within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants. Just a note - If you have mobility problems this apartment won't suit you as there is no lift and there a couple of steps within the apartment.

Sono stato con la mia famiglia 4 pers. a casa di Carlo dal 20 al 22 di giugno, come prima cosa tengo a dire che le foto dell'inserzione di Carlo anche se ottime non definiscono minimamemnte l'effettiva bellezza ed eleganza dell'appartamento, ristrutturato di recente,luminoso, arredato con gusto,pulitissimo e con tutti i confort necessari per trascorrere un fine settimana di relax. Oltre a Carlo,Il padre, Gent.mo Sig. Luigi, ci ha dato tutte le dritte giuste per visitare Rieti e gli indirizzi dei ristoranti di ottima cucina, cio nonostante mia moglie e mia figlia "ottime cuoche" non hanno resistito alla moderna cucina in casa di Carlo, 2 forni +microonde, 5 fuochi,lavastoviglie, gli accessori incluso pentole posaterie ecc.. nuovi. Che dire.. personalmente consiglio questa casa e ringrazio Carlo e la sua famiglia per la gentilezza che ha reso questa piccola in una grande vacanza!! Stefano G.

Ciao! I am an Italian professional transplanted in US. I work in the hi-tech industry and I am a serial startup entrepreneur. I love traveling and especially sailing everywhere in the world: I have the goal to visit all the pre-Y2K UNESCO World Heritage Sites during my life. I like to know new people, new cultures, new foods. I like the concept of traveling and allow people to travel and stay in 'real' places where actual people live and you can experience the real style of life of where you are going. For this reason I think AirBNB is a great idea!
