300 yr. old Courtyard Central Milan

Apartment - Private room · Corso San Gottardo, Milan, Lombardy 20136, Italy

The Space

I have a great place on the Navigli, in the center of Milan, which is a historical location.

The apartment is spacious, bright, airy and CLEAN. I host my guests in a PRIVATE BEDROOM, with high speed WIFI. There is no A.C, but I have 2 skylights and a large fan. The bedroom can accommodate 2 people on the bed and I can put out an extra bed for 2 more people in the same bedroom. The bathroom is always clean and you share it with me. I provide you with clean sheets, towels, hairdryer and an iron.

The courtyard where i live is around 300 years old, it used to be a cheese factory and they used the canals ( Navigli: which was designed by Leonardo Da Vinci himself) to transport and trade cheese. There are 2 main doors to the courtyard, one directly on the Navigli and the other on Corso San Gottardo. The courtyard was ranked one of the best places to live in Milan, 3 years in a row. Its very very green with a lot of plants. I have a nice " balcony garden" with candles where you can sip a glass of Vermentino and munch on some fresh Mozzarella. The apartment is located 8 mins from Duomo (by Tram) and 5 mins from the underground station of Porta Genova. There is a major transit point a few meters from the apartment.

I love cooking, wine as well as hanging out and chatting. I can cook Italian, Brazilian, Indian, Chinese, French, Korean, North African, Greek, South East Asian fusion, Thai, Mexican and of course NYC Hamburgers and American Continental. Dinners are optional and cost 15 euros/person, wine included as well as FUN. If you intend to have dinner, please let me know at least a few days in advance with your choice of cuisine and ALLERGIES as well ( I really really do not want to kill my guests :)

PLEASE give me some information about yourself when booking!!

Anyway, contact me if you want a well rounded Italian experience. From an Expat as well as a local.

Smoking allowed outside on the Balcony!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Richard was an amazing host! His amazing apartment is located in the perfect spot; walking distance into the center of town and right on the beautiful canals! He welcomed us at the apartment and gave us the inside scoop of Milan. We loved Richard and his apartment!! Definitely stay here if you have the chance :)

  • All i can say is: Milano's number one host is Richard. He's a very cool guy, nice, simple and very easy going. You feel like at home, and what a home. The house is very central, big and very stylish. Richard is very (disponibile), will tell you where to go if you're looking for where to eat some tasty food (he knows a lot about good food), where to hang out and have fun. Seriously, there's no negative point by choosing this place; so go there, you won't regret it, guaranteed!

  • Richard was a great host and the room was comfortable. Note that there is no private bathroom, that it is shared. The room is located within walking distance of Duomo and central downtown area.
    If you have a car parking is a real challenge not only in Milan but most larger cities in Italy.

  • When it comes to hosting, no one does it better than Richard! He treats you as if you are an old friend! His apt is in a great location and there is everything you need in the vicinity. His apt. is wonderful and artistic and my family (esp. my daughter) reveled in it. Thank you so much for the great memories Richard and you made Milan even more beautiful (hard to do) than it is.

  • Richard was a wonderful host! His apartment was very comfortable and clean. The location can't be beat. He lives within walking distance to the canal nightlife (next door really) as well as the Dupmo and other cultural attractions. It was great talking with him about Milan and getting to know him better. He even shared his lunch with us, which was home cooked and absolutely delicious.

  • This was such a lovely stay. Richard is someone who truly embodies the ideals of airbnb. Interested and interesting, I felt at home and welcomed from first to last. Great room in a historic house. Do book one of his dinners - just marvellous, excellent food with great company. Thank you so much Richard and Luigi. Milano is wonderful too.

  • Richard è stato da subito molto accogliente e disponibile! La sua casa si trova in una posizione centralissima e facilmente raggiungibile con i mezzi. Assolutamente consigliato!

  • My friend and I had a wonderful time staying with Richard. The moment we arrived, he made sure we felt at home and immediately gave us a map and great tips for exploring the area. He is a super nice person and was really easy to get along with. His cooking skills are also fantastic! I definitely recommend paying the 15 euro and sharing a meal with him. His place was very clean and he gave us a lot of privacy. I would definitely stay with Richard again.
