Lodging in Apartments:

We offer lodging in apartments in and around Civita’s historical center. In general, the apartments are approachable by stairs and generally not air-conditioned. Fans are supplied by us and are quite sufficient. If air conditioning is an absolute necessity, we recommend that accommodation arrangements be made at the Relais.

Apartments require individual responsibility, strict adherence to recycling norms and are expected to be kept decently clean.
