How often does one have the chance to stay in a palace? A property where Italian nobility still comes to visit. It’s hard to unstate the grandiosity of Casa Aurea: baroque bas reliefs, soaring sculpted ceilings and gilded everything else.
This is a property for those invested in total Romanesque immersion – a museum and a four-bedroom, apartment in one. Once you’re done marvelling at the immaculately preserved interiors, it’s just a short stroll to the lungs of Rome, Villa Borghese Park.
For a more private outdoor experience, check out the garden patio, which wraps around the entire property. Indoors, you can entertain guests in the grand salon, dining room or fumoir. The latter makes a memorable spot for after-dinner drinks with a cigar.
A small mention must be made of the property’s in- and outdoor sofas. Sumptuous and overstuffed, you’ll feel like a Renaissance cherub sinking into a cloud. The perfect spot to marvel at the stately chandeliers above.
