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!
Please read the house rules before booking!
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.
He was so nice! And the apartment it was perfect, tanks Richard !!!
Richard and his apartment were wonderful!
The bedroom is a perfect size with a comfortable bed and plenty of space for luggage, etc. The apartment complex is a beautiful vision of balconies and flowers which made us feel welcome and safe. Also, the location was great and near plenty of restaurants, bars, and the subway.
Richard welcomed us with a glass of wine and map of Milan to give us an overview of the city and make recommendations of places to go. Overall, I would recommend for anyone to stay at this listing.
Richard and his partner were excellent hosts. They were happy to assist if I needed something. The location is excellent! Walking distance to Naviglio or Bocconi University. But also silent enough as it is located in a hidden pedestrian zone.
We were so happy that we made the choice to stay at Richards place. He is such a wonderfull host! He made our first days in Milan much better than any hotel could have done it!! His apartment is right where everything happens and we had the best time there!!
Richard was an amazing host! He made sure we felt right at home and gave us a lot of pointers during our time in Milan. He is also a fantastic cook, and an overall great person to spend some time with. The apartment was beautiful and in a great location. Can highly recommend Richard's place to anyone looking to stay in MIlan!
Ричард и Луиджи - просто замечательные хозяева! Приезжали к ним компанией из трех девушек. Весь наш отпуск в Милане прошел просто прекрасно! Апартаменты чистые, удобные и очень уютные. Расположение весьма и весьма удачное: можно добраться до центра на трамвае, либо пешком до метро (так мы никогда не делали:) Рестораны и бары что называется - под боком:) Ричард и Луиджи безумно гостеприимны и открыты для общения! Рассказали нам много о самом городе и окрестностях, о местах которые нужно непременно посетить! Наше путешествие и наполовину не было бы таким прекрасным, если бы мы не встретили этих ребят!:) Очень рекомендуем! Highly recommend!
dear richard, thanks for this very nice appartment and this nice time in milano. you was very friendly and funny. and this red wine was great. thanks for all.
