About this listing
Casa Baretti is a spacious two-room apartment in the heart of the lively historic district of San Salvario, right next to the main tourist attractions of the old city center.
The apartment is situated on the second floor, in the inner courtyard of a typically Turinese “palazzo”.
A small entrance hall, a large living room with a double sofa-bed, a fully equipped kitchenette (with refrigerator, gas hob, oven and dishwasher), a bathroom with shower and a spacious double bedroom with a large wardrobe, and a 10 m long balcony will make your stay unique.
The apartment is ideal for couples, but is also easily adapted to individuals, or groups of up to 5. It is fully equipped, including Wi-Fi internet connection, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, tea and coffee making facilities.
Leaving the building, you will be immediately immersed in the bohemian atmosphere of San Salvario. Within a 5 minute walking distance you will find typically Piedmontese, ethnic or locally produced “0 Km” cuisine. You may sip real ales and beers or a glass of the world famous Piedmontese wine in one of the many open air terraces, taste an inviting “aperitivo”, listen to live music, walk among art studios and workshops, watch an auteur film or simply let yourself go in the bustling nightlife and then simply withdraw to the welcoming tranquillity of Casa Baretti.
Casa Baretti is 6 minutes' walk from Porta Nuova railway station and 4 minutes from Marconi underground station, which can easily transport you to the Lingotto trade fair and exhibition centre in no more than 10-15 minutes. Moreover, a stroll through history along a characteristic “porticoed” street sided by fashion boutiques and cafés will lead you to the historic heart of the city (Piazza San Carlo, Piazza Castello).
We are keen and passionate about sustainability. That is why we have used only environmental friendly paints and the apartment has all the latest energy saving features: double glazing throughout and ultramodern energy saving boiler.
As we are heavy tea and coffee drinkers ourselves, a complimentary selection of loose teas, coffee and herbal teas will be at your disposal to make your stay pleasant and relaxing.
Dear smokers, we have a comfortable balcony where you can find an ashtray and two chairs. Feel free to use and enjoy it! However, we are keen on not smoking inside.
We are sure our towels will wrap and warm you, so use them and make your stay as comfortable as possible. However, in case you don't need them all, just leave the unused ones in the wardrobe. The environment will thank you for it :).
As for the rest, respect the neighborhood and all that good sense suggests.
Ci teniamo che non si fumi in casa. Ma abbiamo un comodo balcone dove potrai trovare un portacenere e due seggiole.
Rispettare il vicinato e tutto quello che il buon senso ti suggerisce.
Livia and Allesio were excellent hosts and met us at the bus stop. As noted in the listing, the apartment is in an ideal location for those without a car - very close to the busses and Porta Nuova train station. The area around the apartment has lots of places to eat and drink. We enjoyed a Mothers Day dinner at Alba restaurant as recommended. The apartment was spotless and had everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable. Lastly, we appreciate our hosts help in catching the bus to the Juventus game - if not for them, we surely would have missed the game.
We enjoyed our stay in casa Baretti. Livia and Alessio were very responsive prior to our travel, and they were also flexible with the check-in and check out times. The apartment was very spacious, clean, and conveniently located in the heart of St Salvario close to the train stations. The area is very lively and busy at night, with many restaurants and bars at a short walking distance. The apartment, however, faces an inner courtyard and was very quiet despite the outside noise level at night. Would definitely come back and recommend it.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Livia was in contact with us during our journey and met us right outside the flat. The flat is very comfortable and relatively quiet at night as it faces an inner courtyard. The nightlife is great and there are loads of places to eat and drink in the neighbourhood. Public transit to most anywhere in the city is very close by.
Alessio met me outside the building as stipulated, helped me with my luggage, and showed me around the apartment. The apartment is very nicely situated off a pleasant octagonal square within walking distance of the train station and all the historic sites. Great shopping can be found nearby. The street is very quiet during the day and comes alive in the evening, but the apartment does not face the street, but a courtyard instead, so that it is nice and quiet and one has plenty of light and fresh air (every room has one a window that opens, and one is on the second or third floor -depending on how you count the floors, as we do this differently in Europe than in the US). I loved Turin and loved this apartment's location off the beaten track in a popular neighborhood. The apartment comes with wifi, a television, and a dishwasher. Coffee, tea, sugar, olive oil and vinegar were available. The apartment was very clean. I would return to this apartment in a jiffy. I was at home here.
Schöne Wohnung, sehr gepflegt, ruhig nach hinten (zum Innenhof) gelegen. Alles da, was man braucht. Wifi funktionierte tadellos.Tolle Lage in San Salvario mit vielen Restaurants, Bars, Cafes und kleinen Läden. Auf der via Baretti tanzt abends der Bär! Viele junge Leute treffen sich hier draußen in entspannter Atmosphäre......in einer wunderbaren Stadt!
Fußläufig kommt man überall hin: ob auf die vielen schönen Plätze oder an den Po. Ansonsten ist die Metro (Marconi) um die Ecke, ebenso ein gutes Bus-System.
Great apartment in a lively area of Turin. Impeccably clean with lots of nice touches (there were biscuits and croissants left for us as well as a nice selection off teas). The host was very friendly and helpful. The apartment is right next to really great value restaurants and bars. Would definitely recommend it.
