About This Listing
This is my apartment in Naples. It is very centric, metres from the funicular, which connects to the entire underground network. It is at the 4th floor of a condominium with elevator, concierge, and inner parking space (the apartment has right to one place). The house is about 70 square metres large, divided in three levels: the entrance and dining room, connects to the yellow kitchen and bathroom on one side. On the other, it brings to the living room, which is at a slightly lower level. On top of it is the bedroom, with its private bathroom and closet room. Almost all windows have beatiful views over the city and the gulf. All rooms have windows to the exterior. The apartment is equipped with fridge, washingmachine, Hi-Fi, (website hidden) can be installed for longer stays if you wish; I prefer not using it.
The street is very calm, although it is metres from the myriad of the small streets connecting to the ancient greek city. The apartment is in fact 10 minutes walking distance from Piazza del Gesù and Bellini, at the heart of the centry and nightlife. A hundred metres away is the funicolare, an underground public transport connection to the tube network. It carries down to the historic centre, and up to Vomero, which is the shopping area. The large stairway passing by the condominium carries to San Martino and Castel Sant'Elmo, some of the most beautiful monuments in town and certainly among the best views in the world..
No fixed rules. Just common sense. I leave towels and sheets for all guests. There is wifi: the password is written on the router. The concierge is happy to help out with anything. Heating is private: there is a regulator at the entrance, behind the red and blue canvas, where you can fix temperature.
I had an amazing stay at the apartment. Eralda, David's mother, was extremely pleasant, accommodating, and hospitable. The area is very centrally located and you can walk to bus stops, metros, and funiculare to explore Naples and beyond. I highly recommend this place.
For anyone unfamiliar with Naples it makes sense to get the taxi from the station to the flat. (You may be asked if you want it on the meter or a fixed price. The price seems to be the same either way so your answer depends on your view of tax dodging.)
For subsequent trips into town the funicular is reliable. The ticket machines in the local station aren't, so it's worth buying enough day tickets in advance for the period of your stay.
The flat is spacious with a clear view of the city and the lift is at the front door. It has a kitchen area, large living area and two bathrooms.
If you want to explore the immediate area, a ten minute walk to your left from the flat is Naples in the raw. A ten minute walk to your right is rather more gentrified.
We were met by Davide's parents who were very gracious. They welcomed us with a bottle of wine, fruit and things for breakfast, all of which were much appreciated.
Un appart très bien situé avec une vue fantastique ou l'on se sent bien et où on est accueilli chaleureusement
L'appartement de Davide est situé sur les hauteurs de Naples, au dessus du quartier Espagnol à peu de temps à pied ou en transport de l'hyper centre (15/20 minutes à pied pour Toledo (metro))
L'appartement est fonctionnel avec une vue superbe sur la ville, et le Vésuve. On passerai des heures à la fenêtre à observer le panorama s'il n'y avait tant à faire à Naples. La pièce de vie est assez grande, 2 salles de bains, et tout l'équipement nécessaire pour y passer un agréable séjour
Il y a des commerces de toutes sortes dans la rue et un marché un peu plus bas
On a été reçu chaleureusement par Davide (et sa mère) qui est ensuite revenu avec quelques courses (gâteaux, fruits, ect ..., quel accueil!!) et qui n'est pas avare de conseils et informations
L'appartement donne sur une avenue assez bruyante mais Naples est bruyante :) et une fois les fenêtres fermées, le silence est de retour
L'immeuble est sécurisé et possède un gardien
La ville est pittoresque, le quartier Espagnol est un dédale que l'on prend plaisir à arpenter matin et soir même s'il faut avoir les mollets en forme pour monter la pente et la volée de marche pour accéder à l'appartement. Pour les moins courageux, le funiculaire est à 2 minutes de l'appart
Une adresse à retenir et à faire connaître
Great experience. First is an amazing view. Second is very good taste furnishing. Very special atnosphere. Centrally located. We had a great time at Davide's apartment. Davide is very helpfull and kind. We definitely recommend it.
We did no meet Davide as he was abroad but his brother Daniele met us upon arrival and gave us brief information about Napoli and the house.
The parking place became indispensable as we left the car during our 5 day stay (Driving in Napoli is quite an experience)
The property has a stunning view over the city and it's easy to reach by funicular (next door).
Clean and nicely distributed in 3 levels, the house is not as impersonal as other places for rent. It rather seems that you are staying at the place of a friend. Thank you Davide.
We definitely recommend it.
Davide's apartment was exactly what we expected and needed for our weekend in Napoli. You can't miss the stunning view on the bay and the Vesuvio! The location is perfect since it's a 15 minutes walk from the centro.
We've been very welcomed by Davide"s mother, and Davide has been very accommodating with us! Grazie mile!
We loved Davide's apartment so much, the view is spectacular, and the place is really nice and cosy to spend time in. Very spacious and it was nice and clean too.
The hosts were helpful and easy to contact.
The location is easy to get around Naples, I would definitely recommend to stay here- i wish this was my place!!!

My favourite site. The monastic complex is amazing and the views spectacular. Real peace, art ancient ships. You can get here also climbing the panoramic street called Pedamentina.Largo San Martino Naples Campania 80129

6 tavoli, ospite simpatico, grande cucina a massimo 15 euro. Meglio di così! Only six tables, always stuffed with people. The owner is very kind and funny, high quality food for 15 euros or less..!Vico Basilio Puoti Naples Campania 80134
