I rent, for week-ends, short term stays or during the holiday seasons, this lovely apartment, in a typical milanese 19th century building.
A few days a week I generally use it myself, and I rent it out when I am not there. It is fully equipped, and very well and carefully kept and looked after.
I lived abroad extensively and am often away, and I truly take pleasure in thinking that other people are enjoying its warmth, light, quietness, charm, airy cozyness.
The apartment is located in the center, 15' on foot south from Duomo square, in a very lively and friendly area (Ticinese, half way between Duomo, 15' on foot, and the Navigli area, 5' on foot), full of small cafés, restaurants, little shops.
It overlooks the beautiful public garden of Conca del Naviglio, which has a fenced children area, with swings slides etc, and a dog fenced area; and you can also rent municipal bycicles there. Unfortunately NO KIDS UNDER 10, though - staircase too unsafe.
The overall setting and location of the apartment, even though in the heart of the city, makes you somehow feel on vacation.
Price includes all expenses (wifi, utilities, final cleaning, printer).
For those of you who have a car: the apartment is located inside the limited traffic area. For further info see Area C Milano site.
Staying in Elena's apartment was awesome!
She is a wonderful host and it was fun to meet her when we got there and when we left. She made us feel very much at home and we knew we could contact her if we needed anything.
The apartment is really beautiful - even nicer then the pictures! It was the perfect size for us (we were 4 people together on a business trip). The bedrooms upstairs are really cute and cozy.
The location is wonderful! You can easily walk from the apartment to the center of Milan or take the tram or metro (both in short walking distance).
It was perfect and a lovely experience. I will surely recommend this listing! Also, as a first AirBNB experience it got me off to a good start and will definitly do this again when i go away for work or on holiday.
Thanks ... and Ciao :-)
Perfect place, spacious and well-situated in a quiet neighbourhood! Elena is a nice and well-coming host!
Elena is wonderful and very hospitable woman. The apartment is fantastic with everything you could ever need. Perfect place for 4 or even 5 guests. The district is realy good - it is not far from centre (15 min wallking to Duomo). So we have do great time in Milano. Thank you Elena a lot! We will be glad to visit you soon again.
We stayed at Elena's place for one week after Christmas. It is a delightful apartment in a good location - a quiet neighborhood which is still very convenient to the downtown area.There are a few restaurants and a Carrefour express right outside the door, but it is a four-minute walk to a busy street with a grocery, tram stops, restaurants etc. We used the trams since the metro was more like a 10-minute walk. But the trams will take you right to the Duomo where you can transfer to the metro.
It is located on the top floors of a classy old building. Elena has done a wonderful job decorating it - I thought she must be an interior designer. There was plenty of room for 5 of us with two bedrooms in the attic and one bed in the study downstairs. The double bed was very high quality (I don't there is also a spacious dining room and living room. You could fit in even more people although there is only one bathroom.
We didn't meet Elena in person but her friend let us in. Elena however was always available to answer questions, give advice on restaurants, travel, etc.
The only problems I would mention would be getting upstairs might be difficult for some people - you have to bend back a bit to clear the ceiling. And if you have trouble climbing stairs then you might think twice since it is on the top floor with no elevator. There was not a shower curtain when we stayed there, so you have to shower sitting down which was not very pleasant. But otherwise you should feel confident in booking this apartment!
I rented this beautiful apartment to use it as a location for a spot. Great job: Elena's apartment is very lovely! And Elena is courteous and helpful. I'd recommend her.
Elena's apartment is amazing! There was the best place during our long journey!! Location is very well and convenient. Elena was extremely nice and she is a great owner. thank you!!!
The flat in a very cool area of Milan, Naviglie... Full of bars and restaurants, whether you're looking for coolness or classics, 5 minutes from the Duomo, 10 minutes from Brera, the location is great.
Elena has set everything perfect for my arrival. Very kind and reactive :)
In one word, GO !
Elenas apartment is very cosy and quite ideal in terms of walking distances from the city center. We were 7 people travelling and we stayed in Elenas apartment in combination with Angelica Viscontis apartment with is exactly the same building. With such a big group it was the same comfort as staying in a hotel, We could easily stay in contact with each other. As Elena was away when we came, we didn't have the chance to meet but Elenas friend Sandra, came and met us up. I can really recommend Elenas apartment.
Very clean and charming place. Elena is quite helpful
My family and I had the perfect weekend staying in this delightful flat. The four flights of stairs are well worth climbing up to reach this peaceful characterful apartment. It is centrally located with plenty of great places to see and eat locally. The flat is very well organised and Elena made it all very easy for us to enjoy a very comfortable stay in her charming home. I hope for sure to stay there again when next in Milan. Mille grazie.
