Costaguti Experience, a weekend in Rome in a renaissance palace surrounded by luxury and design
A new hospitality formula in the Eternal City that combines ancient and modern
After the Costaguti Experience it will be hard to go back to normal hotels. It’s no secret that the hospitality sector is doing good but not excellent. Besides online price wars, alternative solutions to traditional hospitality are increasingly growing to diversify offers.
There is literally everything for everyone: from radical to cool options, from low-budget to luxury residences. The leader is always Airbnb, but new models are constantly being introduced. For instance, Hut (from the Netherlands), where flats are available for rent with hotel-like services. Another one is Dream&Charme, which offers high-end and uber-luxurious typically Italian experiences. On their website, you can rent 500 of the most historic and stunning residences and castles of the entire peninsula.
Costaguti Experience was born in this luxury scenario. Their claim is “Live the history. Experience the luxury. Conquer Rome in complete comfort”. Sure, it is slightly pretentious but once you will try, you will completely agree. Costaguti rents stunning apartments inside the walls of the most historic Roman palaces, including the renaissance palace on Piazza Mattei (yes, the one with the Fontana delle Tartarughe, ‘Turtles’ fountain’)
The most evocative and exciting aspect of this apartment is the chemistry created by the combination of elements that are seemingly incompatible. The sixteen-century coffer ceilings with frescos by Cavalier d’Arpino (one of Caravaggio’s masters) and by the Zuccari brothers perfectly match the contemporary design pieces and the avant-garde art pieces.
The six-bedroom apartment can host a maximum of 14 people. A sauna, a 70-square-metre living area, a pool hall and a kitchen with a private chef are just some of the highlights of this magical location. Here, ancient and modern, baroque and minimal contaminate each other creating a unique experience in the Eternal City.
