In 2022, we’re enjoying the return of our freedom to travel the world and make up for the time we’ve lost over the past two years due to the global pandemic. But it’s not the only way in which we’re enjoying a better work-life balance, and with a growing number of us continuing to work remotely even now that ‘stay at home’ government orders have been scrapped, the opportunity to combine work with adventure, with plenty of rest and relaxation on the side, is now more of a reality than ever before.
If you’re planning on taking your work with you while you explore some of the world’s most vibrant destinations – or maybe just jet off on a solo adventure and check in at some of the finest luxury hotels along the way, then the Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese’s new ‘Solo ‘Scape’ experience is the perfect place to start. The four-night exclusive hotel experience allows travellers to discover everything Rome has to offer at their own pace, without feeling alone – which is just the ticket for remote workers looking to head off to somewhere new.
Situated on a quiet street in the epicentre of Rome, Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese is a former 19th century Roman palazzo that lies within walking distance of some of the city’s best-known cultural landmarks and parks, including the Trevi Fountain, Villa Medici and Spanish Steps. Evoking the feel of a Roman home, the hotel has a relaxed and laid-back atmosphere that gives a sense of being truly immersed in the essence of this picturesque Italian city. Settimo, the hotel’s contemporary rooftop lounge and restaurant, is a garden escape offering panoramic views overlooking the famed Villa Borghese gardens and St. Peter’s Basilica.
There’s no denying that this luxurious hotel is a beautiful place to base yourself for an exploration of the Eternal City – but what exactly should one expect from the ‘Solo ‘Scape’?
On arrival at this beautiful hotel, which enjoys a privileged location in Italy’s captivating capital city, solo travellers can meet with Sofitel Rome’s head concierge, Agostino Sità, for an authentic apericena (a combination of an aperitivo and dinner) on Settimo’s rooftop overlooking the city – a warm welcome that will ensure you instantly feel right at home. As the president of Rome Les Clefs d’Or, Agostino unlocks all the secrets of the Eternal City and will arrange for the most exclusive experiences desired, so if you’re eager to explore Rome whilst in the lap of luxury throughout, then look no further.
Additional highlights of Solo ‘Scape include a shopping tour with Italian fashion influencer Selvaggia Capizzi to top boutiques and private ateliers, as well as private yoga lessons at some of Rome’s most scenic locations taught by Barbara Capriotti, who has been practicing Hatha Yoga for over 20 years. Of course, one of Italy’s biggest draws – aside from its rich history and intriguing culture, of course – is its decadent food, and to ensure solo travellers have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the mouth-watering flavours of Italy, the package also includes a private food market tour and a cooking lesson with executive chef Giuseppe D’Alessio.
One of AccorInvest’s many prestigious properties around the world – which include more than 850 hotels, owned and leased, located in 26 countries of Europe, Latin America and Asia, guests at the Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese can be certain they’re in for a treat. If you’ve been considering jetting off but are a little apprehensive about going alone, then this is the perfect place to start off your solo travel journey, so hesitate no more and book those first class flights.
