Welcome to the House of the Whales!
You’ll stay in a gorgeous loft in one of the most beautiful parts of the city, near the Church of San Cristoforo, on the Navigli.
The building used to be a book manufacturing facility, and it’s been recently renovated from the ground up.
The apartment is on two floor, connected by glass and iron stairs.
The industrial parquet covers every floor, and it’s good to walk barefoot.
The kitchen is comfortable. It’s got an oven, dishwasher and everything you need.
There are two bathrooms, one of which has a large shower with a glass mosaic.
The main bedroom has got a kingsize bed, while the living room has a convertible sofa that can become a very comfy second kingsize bed in an instant. The apartment can house 4 people comfortably.
It’s a very well lit apartment, but if you want to sleep into the day you can close all tents and enjoy the peace, far from noises and voices.
The neighborhood is residential, you’re very near pubs and clubs, but the house is very quiet because the entrance is in a court. For your security, by night you can activate the alarm system with a simple button.
The Whale House is very central. It’s connected to the historic centre with the tram no. 2 (you can get to the Duomo in 15-20 minutes of tram ride) or you can take the underground on the green line, MM2 Porta Genova.
In the neighborhood you’ll find flea markets, characteristic restaurants, pizzerias, pubs and clubs, on top of banks, bakeries, pharmacies, tobacconists. Not far from the place, you can do the groceries in supermarkets and colorful neighborhood markets.
The Naviglio side is a perfect place to jog, but you’ll also find swimming pools and gyms.

Non ci sono particolari regole da seguire se non quella di fumare fuori casa (c'è uno spazio coperto dove farlo) e trattare bene le parti delicate come tendaggi e tutto il resto.

Gabriella is a really nice and guest-friendly person. her apartment was a perfect choice during Milan Design week. I would recommend her!
Thank you Gabriella! We loved the apartment, it is such a cool, contemporary space to find in an old city! We felt very safe and comfortable there since it is inside a gated courtyard area. The location is very convenient, with the bus stop nearby so we could easily use it to reach the metro and travel anywhere we wanted. We also enjoyed walking down the Grande Navigli and checking out the Milano Aperitivo. We appreciated your help with suggestions for places to eat, we loved Soul & Kitchen! It was so very sweet of you to give us the Prosecco and to leave the heart shaped arrangement of candies on our bed in honor of our honeymoon. Those touches made our stay even more special.

I stood nearly 7 months in the loft and it was allways great. Please try it and you will see, gabriella is the best Hostess i've ever had and the loft is very Close to the best Region for dinner and evening Events.
Thank you Gabriella for the great time in Milano and I hope i'm able to come to your loft again.
Very cool and funky place to stay! Very clean and modern and our host, Gabriella was super friendly and easy to communicate with. Would definitely recommend.
gabriella was very helpful and was always there to help and provide information. it was a lovely place to stay and everything was there. The place was perfect to stay and 10 min. from tortuna. it was also quiet place, so we did not here cars or Music from naboers. I Can recommend to book the palce . I look forward to comeback to here appartement again and be together whit gabriella.
The Loft is really nice, beautiful and clean. I've appreciated my stay in Milano and extended it for whole October. Feel little bit sorry for all the other people about that.
It is only a 10 minutes walk to get on a beatiful avenue with a lot of bars, restaurants and a little river.
I can only recommend the appartment to everyone who would like to come to milano.
Also Gabriella is a really great host. If you need anything just ask her and she will look for it.
Thanks Gabriella it's really great at your place.
Gabriella is a great host - quick to contact, reliable and extremely helpful!!! We had a very good stay in the apartment, although it is a tiny bit further out from the city centre than we were expecting. Having said this, public transport is right on the doorstep, with the Navigli (bars/restaurants etc.) being about 10 minutes tram ride away.
