(Please note that this apt is NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN.
Larger groups can rent it in combination with another nearby listing)
I rent this lovely apartment, in a typical milanese 19th century building, that I use only few days a week for myself. 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 coziness.
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.
For those of you who have a CAR:
- private GARAGE available 150 meters from the building, 24hrs custody, for an extra fee of 20 euros per day.
- the apartment is located inside the limited traffic area. For further info see Area C Milano site.
Groups larger than 5 could be interested in the fact that the apartment is located a few steps from my brother-in-law's "Brand New Central Coziness" https://www.airbnb.it/rooms/3519937 (sleeps 5).
Home is fully equipped and guests are very welcome to use everything, I just ask that if they finish up something they replace it.
Other Things to Note
Arrival time: please be as accurate as you can and if you are late call as soon as you find out.
For every hour of delay after the first on the agreed time there will be an extra charge of 10 euros.
- NO PARTIES, NO EXTRA GUESTS and NO MUSIC after 9pm.
- *never* leave the bedrooms' WINDOWS open.
- divide accurately the GARBAGE into glass; plastic; organic; mixed non organic.
- the apt must be left in very good order (as you found it, no dishes to wash etc.)
Everything was amazing! We were here for nearly two weeks during Salone del Mobile and the location was perfect and the apartment exactly as described and pictured. Elena was an absolute pleasure to work with and the ideal host...extremely quick to respond, offered and helped coordinate transfer to/from airport, arranged mid-stay cleaning, and had all the relevant info you would need at the apartment for the house and neighborhood.
We look forward to our next visit!
Elena was very nice and her flat is such a beautiful place! I recommand it cause its well located and fancy furnished. Chillin' in Milan was a damn good pleasure.
We frequently stay at Elenas place while in Milan for work. She is amazing as always and VERY accommodating! We will always stay with her as long as we are traveling to Milan!
EXCEPTIONAL AS ALWAYS!
We will be staying with Elena for the 3rd time this coming Feb!
We spent a wonderful time in Milan in this charming apartment. Great location. We will be back.
Piccola vacanza con 5 amici per ultimo dell'anno 2014.
Elena è stata gentilissima e chiarissima in tutto quello che ci poteva interessare.
La casa è a dir poco accogliente ed elegante oltre ad essere in un'ottima posizione, esattamente un quarto d'ora di passeggiata per arrivare al Duomo.
Non si può chiedere di meglio.
It's a very nice place, everything is like in the listing. Elena is very kind and helpful if needed. The flat is in a perfect location to visit the central historical

Easy going, many friends, independent, lived abroad, always loved having guests and making them confortable, love reading, cooking, networking, sharing, walking, working, the seaside. Mentally - maybe overly - dynamic, dislike hectic pace. I work and have always worked in the publishing field, with a strong penchant for "housing" in the broad sense of the word.
