TORINO YOUR HOME
YOU have found the apartment of your dreams! A little gem in the center of Turin!
It's located in the heart of the city of Turin, on the fourth floor of a spectacular Liberty Building, an architectural jewel of early '900 (with statues, pinnacles, floral frames, bow windows and domes).
The entrance of the building has a door, worked in bronze. A large lift in wood and wrought iron will take you up to the fourth floor.
You'll get at the apartment trought a private access, protected by a security door.
The apartment has been renovated with valuable elements. It has stucco cornices and lacquered doors. It consists of two rooms (a bedroom and a living room with sofa that turns in a double-bed), plus a bathroom and a small kitchen. Both rooms have large french windows that make the apartment very bright. Although the apt is in the center of Turin, it is really very quiet. There is no traffic noise at all, because the apt faces a central coutyard.
Queen size bed, two bedside tables, closet. The room is quite big, so - if needed - we can add an extra bed for hosting in the apt one more person (5 max). In case, you'll have to be adjustable, since the space gets narrow, then.
Big sofa (four seats), turning in a very comfy double-bed (with regular mattress), round table with chairs, low table, television at the wall and radio.
Sink with shelves, washing machine, WC and bidet, shower, hairdryer and washes (shampoo, liquid soap, body wash)
The kitchen is very small (compared to italian kitchen, at least), but it's fully equipped with:
stove, oven, refrigerator with freezer
Dishes, plates, pots and pans, utensils (coffee maker Nespresso, electric Kettle)
Assorted foods at your disposal: tea, coffee, salt, sugar, sparkling water, etc..
Pillows, sheets, blankets, fluffy duvet and duvet cover, towels, tablecloths, napkins, dishcloths. Iron and ironing board.
High Speed internet (optical fiber 10 Mb/s simmetric) with free wi-fi access, air conditioning, alarm system, video entryphone, television
The apartment is located in a strategic position to visit the city. You'll be a stone's throw from Via Roma, Piazza San Carlo, Via Lagrange, Piazza Bodoni, Piazza Cavour, ... the elegant part of the city, rich in luxurious shops, theaters, stilish restaurants and fashionable cafés. The apt is about 10 minutes walking from the Egyptian Museum. The Mole (Cinema Museum), Piazza Vittorio Veneto, Piazza Castello and Via Po can easily be reached on foot in a few minutes.
It is also very close to the trendiest district of the city, San Salvario. It starts just across the street. You'll have fun exploring the Turin “movida”, and its nightlife with cheerful pubs, art galleries, live music clubs, fruit market, multiethnic shops and the best food at reasonable price.
In a short walk along the tree-lined street, you'll arrive at the green heart of the city, Parco del Valentino: you can get through the park (on foot, by bicycle or rickshaw on hire) and – along the Po river – you'll reach the Valentino Castle and, then, the “Borgo Medioevale”, a little medieval village.
TRAIN: The Porta Nuova Train Station is just across the street, about 100 mt away (less then 2 minutes walk).
AUTO: You won't need your car for exploring around the city. But, if you drive to Turin, you can park in our private parking place, at three minutes walking from the apartment, at extra fee of € 10,00/night. You don't have to book it in advance, so you can decide at your arrival.
METRO: The nearest bus stop is just a few steps from the house and, in a few stops, you can reach the Lingotto
Exhibition Center in about 5 minutes.
BUS: All bus stops are at your door step or very close to it.
PLANE: The shuttle service to/from the Caselle Airport stops at two minutes walk from the apartment (next to Porta Nuova Train Station).
