The space

Roncaro, Pavia. This is a two story house with 100 m2 garden. Roncaro is a small suburban area between the metropolitan city of Milan (45 min drive) and the University city of Pavia (15 min drive). This small town is charming and quiet located amongst corn and rice fields. It is important for you to have a car when renting this property. Opposite the house there is a play area for children, while at 10 min walking distance you can find a small store with the essentials and fresh produce and a pharmacy. You can also find a Pizzeria Restaurant (with a gluten-free menu), a hairdresser and an esthetician/masseuse at 5 min walking distance. A nearby small church and other two parks complete the scenario. Parking in the street opposite the house is always available.
Ground floor. Living room with a couch-bed that sleeps two. It’s Ikea and quite new, we sleep on it fine and it’s easy to open and close. Fully equipped kitchen: cooker, oven, large fridge and table for 8. Small bathroom with a shower, toilet and sink.
First floor. Children bedroom with 2 bunk beds (sleeps 4), Main bedroom with a queen sized bed and a single, balcony overlooking the park. Bathroom with jacuzzi bathtub and bidet.
In the summer and spring time we will have a 15′ trampoline in the yard, table chairs and umbrella are also provided. We have one lovely calico cat on the property, her name is Cookie. There are no smelly litter boxes in the house, if Cookie is around when you are visiting you can feed her in the morning.

In the fall/winter there will be an additional accommodation cost due to the centralized heating system. Heating charges will be calculated according to the number of guests and the length of the stay.

It’s a good place to stay if you want to get the “real” Italian adventure one bit at the time, away from the chaos of the big cities, it’s also a great place to get over jet-lag while keeping the children busy. Relax, enjoy reading a book in our yard and then set off for cool day trips. This is Italy, History is *everywhere* you look!

Cleaning fee 40 Euro. Linen and towels provided.
In the Winter the heating is an EXTRA cost, average 120 euro a month, it will be taken from the deposit.
We can arrange for a maid during your stay.
We can provide you with the groceries you need on arrival.
No Smoking in the House.
Small pets are allowed on ground floor.

Guest access

Home, front yard, play area across the street, mini market in town, one good restaurant (gluten free menu available) 5 min walk.

The neighborhood

Quiet, small, no traffic. Close by you can buy fresh bread, there is a nice restaurant and a pizzeria down the street.

Getting around

Close to Linate airport. There are very few buses from Roncaro to Milan or Pavia, so it's necessary to have a car.
With a car you can take many differs day trips to many touristy areas of the north. Perfect place to get over jet lag and start eating gelato :)

Other things to note

The area is very quiet - great for recovering from jet-lag

Matteo and Erika's home was a perfect fit for us, and we would highly recommend it! Our two girls never ran out of fun things to do during our month stay in Roncaro. Erika had everything organized very well and provided us with plenty of space for our things as well. Roncaro is a very peaceful little village but there are lots of places to visit not too far away as the description says. Matteo and Erika are very thoughtful people and communication by email was always quick and easy.

The house of the Di Martino family is an excellent place to stay with young kids. Our 3 year old daughter loved to play with the cats and enjoyed the big trampoline, the slide, the swing and the toy house in the yard. Being spring time, the beautiful cherry tree was blooming in the yard. The house is spacious, well equipped and Erika was a great help by leaving small notes on the appliances about how to use them. Roncaro is a nice small town with lovely playgrounds for the children, a small grocery store and a pizzeria. It is very close to Pavia and Milan. We enjoyed our one week stay a lot and can only recommend the nice home of the Di Martino family and Roncaro as well to anyone who wants to spend a lovely time in Italy.
