About this listing
Near Linate airport, great for families with kids, 1 h from lake Como, 1.5h from Ligurian Coast (Portofino). Very quiet and spacious. Easy commute to Milan, car needed. Pavia is a beautiful University city only 15 min away, great gelato.
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!

Quiet, small, no traffic. Close by you can buy fresh bread, there is a nice restaurant and a pizzeria down the street.
Close to Linate airport. There are very few buses from Roncaro to Milan or Pavia, so it's necessary to have a car.
