About This Listing
Our lovely three bedroom flat, just next to the Regent's canal, is surrounded by delicious restaurants and cafes as well as some very cool bars. Enjoy the urban scenery or take a stroll to one of the beautiful parks nearby for a bit of green!
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), and a lively 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!

Beautifully decorated flat located in a trendy area. Enjoyed my stay immensely.
We had a great stay at Silvio and Pippa's place! It is a very warm and cozy place in a great area. Great canal walk, food, and close to transport! The kitchen was great for cooking and I would recommend it!
Staying at Pippa and Silvio's was fabulous! My friend Bianca and I stayed there for 6 days and the apartment was great! We where walking distance from Broadway market and hackney rd. buses and station where very close too! The apartment was very light and bright and big and safe. We really enjoyed ourselves and would defiantly recommend to a couple or group traveling to London!
The communication with Pippa and Silvio was very good and at our arrival we were greeted very warmly by Silvio at the apartment. The apartment was exactly as described and as the pictures were showing. We used the kitchen often and it is very well equipped. The apartment generelly is cozy, clean and well equipped. There are a lot of good restaurants and pubs nearby and we loved to walk along the chanel and to the big park which is just a about a 10 minutes walk from the apartment. Silvio has given us some tips on where you can eat well (they were absolutly worth a try!) There are also a few pages in the apartment with descriptions of the apartment, recommendations for the stay and how best to get to the sites in the city. In summary : We have felt very comfortable and had a wonderful short break in London.
We enjoyed staying in Silvio&Pippa's flat. It's clean and comfortable. The surroundings are very agreable and calm, the Canal and nearby Market and Parks are charming, giving a pleasant balance to the crowdy and noisy town. The building itself is rather ordinary and beyond comparison to the nice flat but Pippa's kind reception contributed to our feeling being at home.
In generaly we are very satisfied and we highly recommend!
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.

About the Host, Silvio & Pippa
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!
Beautiful park next to the canal, perfect for walks, picnics, frisbee or jogging. Great place just to hang out. There is also a lovely cafe selling delicious cakes and excellent coffee.London E9
Lovely, cosy and inexpensive place to eat. Bring your own booze and book a table in advance as it gets very busy. Just around the corner too!London England
