“Stylish apartments for 2-4, a coin’s throw from the Trevi Fountain: modern and retro features blend with vintage finds”
There are 6 apartments for 2-4 guests, each utterly unique in layout and décor, and dressed in an eclectic mix of vintage, mid-century and modern pieces in a myriad of shapes, textures and colours. Original features like battered wooden doors and beautifully worn tiles have been salvaged, and the overall effect is a bohemian home-away-from-home. You’ll also find open-plan kitchenettes, spacious dining areas and big spoiling bathrooms (some even have a sauna!), generously stocked with toiletries.
We loved staying in the industrial-style Grand Apartment, the biggest. It had a large living/dining room looking out over Via in Arcione, and a sweet little terrace accessed through a hidden wardrobe in the bedroom. When we come back, we’ll try sophisticated Corner Apartment 5, which is decorated in pretty pastels and has a capacious bed with a bird-themed fresco headboard, plus vintage furniture covered in Kvadrat fabric and a Turkish bath. Since our visit, Master Apartment 7 has been added - a palatial top-floor space we can't wait to see for ourselves.

Each morning, a market bag of breakfast goodies is left outside your apartment door, brimming with freshly baked pastries as well as bread, eggs, juice and fruit.
For other meals, the modern kitchenettes are stocked with complimentary basics to rustle up an easy meal (tomato sauce, olive oil, pasta, milk, butter, eggs, yoghurts, biscotti, tea, coffee, seasonings etc), plus a few items for sale (Prosecco, wine, chocolates). And if you're feeling more adventurous, there's a CasaCau cookbook to inspire your cooking. You get a hob, fridge, kettle and Moka coffee maker but note there are no freezers or toasters. Head to Eataly Roma for your groceries - a colossal food emporium near Ostiense station, showcasing some of the very best produce Italy has to offer.
Needless to say, CasaCau’s staff have lots of great restaurant recommendations. We taxi'd to Stazione di Posta to try the much-lauded tasting menu. It included delicious carbonara served in little eggshells and chocolate tree puddings - heaven.
Children are welcome and the apartments are spacious, with equipment to borrow and a central location from which you can walk to sights and family-friendly restaurants.
