Modern Rome Apartments
Contemporary apartment rentals overlooking a beautiful green square in the heart of Rome. There are very few apartments like this in Rome.
CasaCau is about 100 metres walking distance from Trevi Fountain in the historic centre of Rome.
Live like a Roman for a few days in a beautiful townhouse from the 1600s.
You have your own apartment but with the services of a small hotel. Staff will spoil you with recommendations.
Breakfast is brought to your apartment and there’s a kitchen in case you don’t feel like going out for dinner.
You are in the heart of the city 100 meters from the Trevi Fountain so there can be a bit of noise from the streets.
How would you describe CasaCau in a nutshell?
CasaCau is a collection of six luxury serviced apartment rentals offering the best of both worlds: the privacy and space of your own apartment to enjoy longer stays, with services on your doorstep, like in a hotel. Individually decorated with handpicked furniture and artworks, they are within in a historical townhouse from the 1600’s in the centre of Rome,. The vacation apartments are just steps away from the Trevi Fountain. They are a truly a quiet refuge in such a busy location.
What was the idea behind CasaCau?
We wanted to open up a small hotel that would enable guests to visit Rome, stay in a superb location but at the same time feel like they are in the comfort of their own home-away-from-home. CasaCau combines this feeling of a serviced apartment rental with all the additional amenities and services of a luxury hotel.
To you personally, what is so special about staying at CasaCau?
Staying at CasaCau is not like staying at a normal hotel but it really is the best way to get to know Rome as a Roman. CasaCau’s apartment rentals are in the heart of Rome and our team is here to help you experience Rome like a local.
How long would you recommend to stay at CasaCau’s apartments to get a feel of the city?
To get a feeling of the real Rome, guests might need four or five days at a minimum. Most guests usually stay that long, if not longer. The minimum stay at CasaCau is two nights on weekends.
Each of the six apartments has its own individual style but all offer modern amenities as well as retro elements. We combine vintage furniture, antique typewriters, Turkish baths with docking stations for iPads, WiFi and other technological amenities.
Our smallest apartment is the Studio Apartment, which is for 2 guests and has a sauna. Corner Apartments are beautiful and can be combined into a unique apartment. One of the two Master Apartments is decorated in a 50s style and has a separate bedroom and living area with a sofa bed. The other Master Apartment, located on the top floor has a spacious living room and a bedroom with two queen-sized beds.
Each apartment has its own kitchenette for guests to use. We provide things like coffee, sugar, and basic ingredients like pasta and eggs. We also have a mini bar with wine, pre-mixed cocktails and other beverages, some of which are complimentary.
One of the Corner Apartments is my favourite because I really like the big bathtub it has.
Open plan kitchen with large dining space, featuring vintage furnishings from the 70’s. A bathroom with a Turkish bath. The bedroom furnishings have been custom designed to relate to the room’s trapeze shaped floor plan. The multifunction construction inspired by 60’s and 70’s design, houses a double queen-size bed and a single fold out bed, and a whole range of containers in a geometric arrangement that plays with the empty and full volumes. A small terrace looks out onto the market in the square. 48 sqm for up to 2 adults and 1 child (up to 12 years old).
The ancient entrance door opens onto a corridor with a large closet opposite the bathroom, equipped with sauna and shower. The bedroom with a double queen-size bed, is furnished with elements that have a primeval feel about them, fur lined stools, natural wood finish, bamboos and the poster-work ‘Let’s Love’ by Georgia Galanti. The open plan kitchen looks out onto the small terrace. 35 sqm for 2 people.
The floor still has the marble chip tiles of old, with cement inlays. The large bright room features an installation-bed (queen-size) in the middle. A view on the square, very spacious bathroom with Turkish bath and tub. Open plan kitchen with dining room dominated by the gold of the contemporary furniture, such as the cement table, a work by Martin Bachmann. The apartment may be joined to Interior 5 and host 4 people. 52 sqm for 2 people.
Beautiful bedroom, overlooking the square, with separable beds crowned by a large stuffed painting that reproduces a specific Roman fresco found in the ‘Room of Livia’, now exhibited at the Palazzo Massimo, a touch of ancient and modern rolled into one. The old typewriter recalls a great promoter of Italian design talent, Adriano Olivetti, and invites you to use this instrument now almost entirely obsolete, something that makes us appreciate it all the more. A large bathroom with shower and Turkish bath. Open plan kitchen with spacious dining room and relaxation area. 49 sqm for 2 people.
In this vacation apartment the old cement tiles and the large mantelpiece in the bedroom go hand in hand with industrial style furnishings and 50’s décor elements.

The bathroom with shower and tub is decorated with a multitude of vintage wicker mirrors. The bedroom overlooks the back of the Quirinale, the Presidential residence, and, through a bizarre walk-in closet, one reaches the inner facing terrace. 63 sqm for up to 3 adults, or 2 adults and 2 children (up to 12 years old).

CasaCau has a reception room where we welcome guests and have all you need to know about exploring Rome. We also provide insider recommendations on what to see and do based on what our guests’ preferences are, and can arrange for reservations and such.
Breakfast is delivered daily, on the doorstep of each apartment. The croissants and baked goods come from one of the best bakeries in Rome and are freshly brought to our guests every morning. We have plenty of local restaurants to recommend or guests can have their food delivered to the apartments too.
We have now also available a very simple self check-in and self check-out procedure, so guests can have access to the property independently.
You are just a stone-throw away from the Pantheon as well as the Spanish Steps and its luxury shops. The Trevi Fountain area is still worth seeing as well as the Monti neighbourhood, which is a typical Roman neighbourhood where it is nice to walk around. It is an ancient part of Rome with a lot of typical Roman restaurants, shops, and old buildings. Even though it is close to the Colosseum, not everybody knows about it.
Each neighbourhood has its own personality and is worth exploring, whether or not they’re close to any of the main attractions.
One of the things I wouldn’t miss is going to the Orange Garden, which is on a small hill close to the Colosseum. Up on the hill you can find a door and if you peek through the keyhole, you will see St. Peter’s Basilica.
CasaCau is about 100 meters walking distance from the Trevi Fountain in the historic center of Rome. It has everything a tourist would want – iconic sights, neighbourhood restaurants, shops, gelaterias, and many other beautiful places.
Most of the sights are within walking distance of the apartments. The metro station is about a two-minute walk from Trevi Fountain. Barberini Square is nearby and has a beautiful fountain too. From there guests can hop on the metro to the Vatican. The famous Colosseum is about a 10-minute walk away.
Spring is one of the best times because it’s not too hot and with everything blooming, it’s very beautiful. The beginning of summer can be nice for a brief vacation, as well as early autumn in September and October, where you miss more of the crowds and heat. Christmas however is very special and beautiful too.
Your contact details will allow you to message or book a property in the guest area. Sunshine awaits!
