CENTRAL ROMANTIC APT IN TORINO
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).
Interaction with Guests
I am sure you'll enjoy your staying!! I'll meet you at the apt (or where else you prefer, if requested) and I'll give you further information about the City. Then, You can call me any time on cell phone or e-mail. I love Turin and I will do my best to make your trip enjoyable and "straordinario"!!
E' veramente in una posizione invidiabile, vicinissimo ai trasporti e allo stesso tempo a 2 minuti da via Roma, la via più prestigiosa della città.

Appartamento perfetto, in ottima posizione e silenzioso, pulizia impeccabile, letto comodo. Barbara è stata molto gentile, e ci ha fornito utili consigli per il nostro w-e a Torino. Sicuramente da consigliare!!
We hebben een week in dit appartement doorgebracht. Van tevoren was er al informatie over Turijn en het appartement aan ons gestuurd. Bij aankomst werden we gastvrij en vriendelijk ontvangen door Barbara, die ons nog de nodige tips over Turijn heeft gegeven. Het appartement was netjes, schoon en compleet ingericht. Het is gunstig gelegen ten opzichte van het station, winkels en bezienswaardigheden.
We hebben hier een prettige tijd doorgebracht. Een aanrader!
Our staying with Barbara and Franco was perfect. The apartment is well located, clean and beautiful. Marco welcomed us and gave us helpful recommendations for a short stay in the city. We even had a bottle of Italian wine waiting for us. I would definitely recommend this place in Turin.
My wife and I were in Turin for a 2-day stay. Barbara and Franco's deluxe apartment is located in a beautiful liberty style building and turned ou to be a really great home base in Turin. The location is terrific for walks in the historic centre of this great city, with its caffé's, shops and restaurants. It's located very close to the Porta Nuova railway station with its airport transfer bus stop as well to the famous Via Roma from where all the shopping and sight-seeing starts.
The apartment is very clean and quiet with lots of privacy. The bedroom is huge and the bed is really comfortable. The bath room is spacey with a beautiful shower. The small kitchen is very well equipped.
What especially made our short stay so pleasant is the fact that we found everything we could wish for. From mineral water, toast and mini jars of jam and honey to soap and shampoo. It was all there. The espresso machine, the stereo and the large flat screen tv made the picture complete.
Barbara and Franco showed what great hosts they are. We definitely enjoyed our short stay very much! And we'd undoubtedly stay here again!
Meraviglioso appartamento silenzioso,situato a due passi da piazza San Carlo, dotato di ogni comfort.
Proprietari molto gentili.
L'appartamento, situato in uno splendido palazzo signorile d'epoca, rispecchia fedelmente le foto pubblicate, è pulito, ben arredato, spazioso per due persone ma un po' stretto per quattro adulti. Dotato di tutti i comfort (macchina per il caffè, bollitore per il tè, riscaldamento, condizionamento, tv, wifi, stereo), si trova in una tranquilla zona piena di bar ristoranti e negozi vicino (200 metri) alla stazione di Porta Nuova e alla stazione delle navette per l'Aeroporto. Con una passeggiata ( a piedi) di cinque minuti raggiungete le vie pedonali dello shopping e tutte le piazze del centro, in dieci minuti il Museo Egizio, Piazza Castello, Via Roma.
Gentilissimo e disponibile il proprietario, che ci ha consigliato ristoranti in zona.
Très bel appartement, pourvu de tout le confort (wifi, TV, chaîne stéréo), et meublé et décoré avec beaucoup de goût. Il est situé à 5/10 mn à pied du centre historique de Turin, à proximité de tous les sites à visiter... et des cafés turinois ! Le parking sécurisé est aussi à 5 mn de l'appartement, l'un et l'autre à deux pas de la gare de la Porte Neuve. De plus, l'appartement est parfaitement calme, et l'accès de l'immeuble est surveillé par un concierge .
L'accueil de Barbara, qui parle très bien français même si elle s'en défend, est tout à fait charmant et sympathique, et très efficace pour toutes les questions pratiques. Le couvert était mis avec une bouteille de vin d'Asti pour nous accueillir, et nous avons aussi trouvé sur la commode un plan détaillé du centre ville, ainsi qu'un guide des sites à visiter, et une plaquette affichant les code d'accès wifi et les numéros de téléphone en cas de nécessité.
Visiter une ville aussi superbe que Turin dans de telles conditions est une expérience que nous recommandons particulièrement à tout membre de la communauté AirBnB. Notre séjour-découverte ayant été très court, nous comptons bien nous-même recourir à nouveau à une aussi bonne et sympathique adresse !
