The Space

Right in the heart of trendy east London, just next to hip Broadway Market and Colombia Road Flower Market our lovely home is also within walking distance to Shoreditch, Brick Lane and Spitalfields. With excellent local transport links (tube, overground and bus within walking distance) (email hidden)ly atmosphere we are located close to a huge variety of restaurants, cafes, pubs, art galleries, shops and markets. If you fancy a stroll, we are just on the beautiful Regent's Canal, close to Victoria Park and London Fields.

Our home is a light and airy three double bedroom flat (with space for 4 people to stay comfortably) and a balcony. We have a well-equipped kitchen which you are welcome to use, as well as wi-fi. We can also offer off-street parking at no extra cost.

To help you to discover some of London's hidden gems we will leave information on our favourite local restaurants, bars, shops and cafes. In our opinion this is one of the most vibrant parts of London - central enough to easily access all the famous sights (Tower of London, Tate Modern, St Paul's, Houses of Parliament, Soho, Oxford Street etc are around 30 mins by public transport) but if you stay with us you will will be sure to discover some lesser-known hideaways - delicous coffee, traditional pint or even an up and coming new artist. We love our local area - come and discover it for yourself!

  • Pippa and Silvio's place is lovely and had everything we needed. There are over- and under-ground stations within a 15-minute walk, and a number of cafes, restaurants and bars right nearby. The apartment was clean and comfortable for our two-couple stay. Both Pippa and Silvio were very nice and responsive to all questions. We would happily stay there again.

  • We had a great time at Silvio and Pippa's flat. We were stuck in London traffic FOREVER but Silvio was still there, happy and welcoming when we finally made it (despite making him wait). They were extremely responsive during the booking and great to deal with.

    The flat is a great size, very bright, very clean, and in an incredible neighborhood. We had plenty of space for my wife, myself, and our two young kids. The kitchen is well equipped, the living room was comfortable, and the building was nice and quiet. However, if you walk just a minute and a half you get to Broadway Market which is lively and wonderful (and there's great coffee).

    I highly recommend this flat and Silvio and Pippa.

  • We had a great time staying at Silvio and Pippa's during our spring break. The flat was close to public transportation and the area was great. Lovely market and restaurants right down the street. Thank you!!

  • Very nice and quiet flat in one of my favorite parts of London. Close to Broadway market, Columbia flower market and Brick Lane. The three of us stayed there for three nights and had a great time. I just met Silvio briefly but he was very friendly. I can highly recommend this flat.

  • We just can recommend this nice place in Hackney :)
    Never met Pippa in person, but the communication was very warm PLUS she has a really nice brother who waited for us in the appartement to let us in. And as our flight back home was in the middle of the night we were more than thankfull that we could leave our luggage till we needed to go to the airport!
    Thank you sooo much Pippa and brother Danny! You're really nice hosts and next time we'll come back and bring a whole bottle of mountain gay :)

  • A lovely apartment with the good connection to the city center. Although we didn't meet in person, we arranged everything by email, and a friend of Pippa passed the keys. There are two comfortable double beds, couch and a double mattress on the bed base. If you are looking for a flat in the quiet neighborhood, relatively closed to London highlights, I can recommend it.

  • Our party had a great stay in this apartment, it was very comfortable clean and spacious with all we could need for our stay. The location was great for us as we were attending a family wedding in Hackney, but good transport links to other areas were also available. The hosts were very approachable and very easy to deal with.
    I have no problem recommending this apartment, Pippa & Silvio and would stay here again.

  • My family stayed at Pippa & Silvio's flat for six weeks and had a wonderful time. Great location, easy to live there, and Pippa & Silvio were very helpful hosts. I have two small children and they loved being by the canal, playing in the flat, swimming at London Fields Lido, and playing in all the nearby playgrounds. The flat was close to tons of public transport so it was easy to explore all that London has to offer. Highly recommended!

  • Just back from a great London trip. Our family of 5 (including two teenagers) made great use of the flat and its surrounding amenities ... Markets, Swimming pools, London Fields, Haggelston Park, Buses, Tube, London Bike. Hackney is getting its act together as a nice place to stay.

    Pippa provided us with general info about the best Sites and how best to get around .

    Pippa was a most considerate Host and helped make our holiday a great one!

    The apartment had everything we needed and more, and was a home away from home, and allowed us full flexibility to come and go as we pleased rather than be tied to a boring Hotel room/similar.

Silvio is a wine merchant and I work in communications, but when we are not working we travel a lot, particularly to Italy, where we have family. We are also very keen on eating so spend lots of time investigating new restaurants but since we can't spend all our time eating, sometimes we go out dancing or to the theatre too. We live in Hackney, a really exciting area of London. If you come to stay at our home we will more than happy to tell you about our favourite spots to hang out at nearby. We love our flat and are sure that you will too!
