We were very well looked after at Villa Fausta. The Tracanelli's are very knowledgeable about Trieste and are passionate communicators of its history and its quirkiness. The villa is about 20 minutes walk from the train station, in a residential quarter. We found it remarkably quiet, even with the window open at night (there is no air conditioning). There is... More

We travelled to Trieste for a week of relaxation after an intensive contemporary art marathon at the Biennale in Venice. Villa Fausta has been the perfect choice for that. It provides perfect shelter from the noise of the town and the heat wave in early July. The villa is a splendid jewel in a rather modest fitting. A nice, big... More

My husband and I stayed at Villa Fausta just before Easter this year (2013), and can thoroughly recommend Villa Fausta. Although the weather was extreme (wind, snow and ice storms) the room was always warm and snug and the water hot, and always extremely comfortable and clean. Nicoletta and Sergio were the most welcoming hosts, with a delicious breakfast every... More

The traffic and very loud motor scooters were so obnoxious I could not sleep. Even though the house is surrounded by trees, it is very close to a busy road. If sound bothers you, I would not recommend staying here. We stayed on the third floor and taking luggage up the stairs was quite a challenge. No eating is allowed... More

Sorry for not living in a woodland like yours at home. Sorry for asking our guests to co-operate in keeping our charming place not like a hostel. Sorry for having deserved you our top ranked room in the penthouse (at the 2nd floor). Sorry for not having been helpful enough: It may have depended on the reciprocal approach. Thank you... More

This place would easily get 5 stars BUT for 2 complaints we had: We slept in the ground floor room, which has twin beds with wooden head & foot boards. We requested a double room, and perhaps the distinction is not made in Italy between "double" and "sleeps two", but when you're on a honeymoon to celebrate your first wedding... More

Thank you very much for your useful remarks. They give me the opportunity to consider all my guests exceeding 1,90 m as real heroes: They did not complain in the last 10 years! As far as the twin beds is concerned, I have never imagined that two joint beds could jeopardize a relationship. I have always thought that “amor omnia... More

If you are fortunate to find accomodation at the Villa Fausta you will experience the best that Trieste has to offer. The villa is well situated with respect to the railway station and public transportation. Located away from bustle and noise, with well tended gardens, the Villa Fausta has been successfully restored and offers comfortably appointed rooms. Our hosts Nicoletta... More

Dear Elena from Geneva, saying "thank you" for your kind review is not enough! We have to tell you thank you for your patience if we were wrong, if our beloved dogs welcomed you too energically friendly, if we somehow missed something. Your words are encouraging for us to do more and more better. Thank you. More

Villa Fausta is a grand villa from the Habsburg era, built at the same time as the Miramar castle near the city. It is surrounded by a large garden, hidden away in a residential area. It is about one km from the city centre, with several buses in all directions. Villa Fausta is run by a charming italian couple, offering... More

We spent four nights at Villa Fausta in late May 2012, with Nicoletta and Sergio. They made us very welcome and were helpful with information about the city and its history. Our room was at the top of the house, but was very comfortable with a view of the garden. We loved the ceiling fan which made relaxing there more... More
