British style guest mansion
with an Italian twist
The guest mansion Casa Fabbrini Piccola Londra is an English-style villa in Rome’s historic center, located in the elegant Flaminio district, just a few steps from MAXXI Museum, Auditorium Parco della Musica and very close to Piazza del Popolo.
The mansion, decorated with a lush inner garden, dates back to the early XX century, when this small private road, called Piccola Londra (Little London), was designed by the Anglo-Italian mayor Ernesto Nathan.
The fact that it is located in Rome and not in England is just one of the peculiarities of this fanciful building, that lends itself to few rules and many exceptions.
This is a living building, that twists and turns upwards via many steps and spiral staircases, winding its way up like a climbing plant in search of light, which is to be found in the greenhouse and in the winter garden housed on the top floor.
in the heart of Rome
In the rooms, characterized by a variegated Art Nouveau style, the eccentricity of fabrics is interwoven with the rationality of certain geometrical forms recalling Escher’s works, all wrapped by the intense and unexpected colors of the walls.
All the rooms are on the first floor, from where you take the lift and easily reach the common areas of Casa Fabbrini, located on the ground floor and designed to make you enjoy every moment of your stay.
in a charming mansion
The double living room, furnished with comfortable armchairs and sofas, is adorned with a fireplace, a well-stocked library and designer lamps that accentuate the welcoming atmosphere of this generous open space.
The garden is a nice retreat at any time of the day, a place where you can relax reading a book in the shade of an apricot tree, a pleasure to indulge in without haste.
The dining room is the “home of delights” at Casa Fabbrini, especially due to the homemade desserts, made with 100% organic ingredients.
The breakfast is served here and consists of a rich selection of tea, coffee, juice, croissants, freshly baked bread and cakes, yogurt, cereals, cookies and jams produced at our farmhouse, freshly cooked bacon and eggs, toast, tomatoes, cheeses, cold cuts, mozzarella and other sweet or savory delicacies.
In the dining room, you can enjoy a coffee and make a tasty break whenever desired, delighting the palate with our homemade cakes and perhaps even peering the making of the cake in the kitchen.
Every dessert is made by Casa Fabbrini’s chefs following traditional recipes and is a work of art to be savored with satisfaction.
