Casa Angelica Borgo Pio, Rome


Reasons to Love

Casa Angelica

  • Flooded in natural light
  • Unique colourful character
  • Seconds away from the Vatican

Finally. The chance for us to apply our own design tastes to a space with a fine Roman chassis. At two-bed Casa Angelica, we’ve teamed with design studio Paranà to create an apartment that feels fun and functional – and yet still entirely ‘of its place’.

What does that mean? Well, the bold, bright colours have also been carefully chosen to channel Rome’s modernist heritage, particularly in the 1950s and 60s. Just look at that kitsch-pop kitchen!

We particularly love the colour-contoured skylights, which do a wonderful job of illuminating the space more brightly than any other property on our portfolio. There are 100 options for great social-media selfies. Just saying…

This bijou bolthole is located in Borgo Pio (‘il Borgo’ to its friends). A little mediaeval quarter right next to the Vatican, it was rebuilt in the early Renaissance to house the Pope himself. A depth of character remains to this day making it a magic place to stay.

Did you Know

There are views of mighty St Peter’s Basilica from the second bedroom. That’s how close it is to the Vatican.
