Rome is a stage. For more than two millennia, she has served as the stunning backdrop for spectacles staged initially by the fathers of the res publica, then by the emperors and finally by the popes. She served as a platform for their dreams of grandeur and immortality as well as for their visions of world domination, infallibility … and exquisite buildings.

Overview

Holy Deer San Lorenzo City Lodge is the luxurious 350m2 space graced by stunning baroque frescoes and situated within a palazzo built by the genius architect Francesco Borromini. Located inside the church of Sant’Agnese in Agone and overlooking the Fountain of the Four Rivers by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, this luxury apartment not only boasts a world-class setting but also a level of craftsmanship that transports the visitor into a world of wonders. 

When you step from the stairs into the apartment itself, you are truly stepping into a piece of history, a different time, and another opulent place altogether. Be prepared to leave real life behind. Stunning frescoes depicting bible stories and tales of the saints adorn virtually every ceiling. You find yourself looking up, whenever you step through another doorway, to enjoy the surprises around every corner.

Holy Deer is laid out in the shape of a horseshoe. At the two extremes are the two bedrooms with adjoining baths. One bedroom overlooks the romantic Via dell’Anima and leads into an elegant walk-in closet; the other, the sumptuous Pope’s Room, looks directly onto Piazza Navona. The two secluded rooms are linked to one another through a study, music room, library, lounge area with TV, dining room and kitchen. Conceived as a place to gather together and socialize, each of these spaces has been meticulously designed to help guests enjoy the intimacy of a private retreat to the fullest, and to indulge in creative idleness.

The owners Giorgia and Stefano Barbini who renovated the property have clearly done so with the utmost love and care. Artisans were employed to ensure every item of furniture and furnishings were made with attention, and historical experts brought in to help make certain the work that was done was true to the times. Muted grey walls allow every colorful and splendid detail to sing and transport you seamlessly back to Baroque times.

Holy Deer San Lorenzo City Lodge gives a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the history of those who lived within these walls while still enjoy all the comforts of modern life. A truly magical property in the very heart of Rome’s most famous streets. It’s the perfect combination of privacy and public life, ancient and contemporary.
