House - Private room · Via Orsenigo, Trieste, Friuli-Venezia Giulia 34127, Italy

The Space


The room that I offer is part of my home, which is for me the refuge where I reload myself. A special place for the body and the soul which is called "House of Light". The room can comfortably accommodate up to 3 people and it's a place in a quiet environment in the green of the historic "Rione Cologna," as the districts are called in Triest.
The room is in a lovely location between the Vale of Monte Valerio and the park of Villa Giulia, known as the second green lung of Triest, which distant only 15 minutes (by foot) from the historic center of Trieste.
It's a great place for those seeking relaxation and who also wants to know the seeside city Triest with all it's cultural and historical aspects.

The room is located in a very quiet and safe area: 2 minutes walk from the park of Villa Giulia and 15 minutes walk from the town center (Via XX Settembre), 8 minutes from bus stops that lead in most places of interest (Teatro Rossetti, Viale XX Settembre, Teatro Verdi, Piazza Unità - Piazza della Borsa, Central Station, bus station).

If you are interested, I ask you to be contacted in advance and that you have completed the description of your profile by adding a photo and explaining the purpose of your trip because we will share the space of my home. MERCI! : D

The room has a beautiful view to the green and the valley. There is no air conditioning for the warmer season, but there is always a bit of wind because the building it's located in a valley. The room has a fan and is equipped with individually controlled underfloor heating and WIFI.

The colors white and yellow has been chosen as the WHITE significate the light, the simplicity, the sun, the air, the light, purity, innocence, holiness, redemption. White light contains all the seven colors of the rainbow, it is revitalizing, regenerating the body, clears the mind. Revitalizes the entire body. It is a color that brings fresh and solar energy.

Combined with the color YELLOW, which is the color that reminds the Sun, expresses a movement of expansion. The choice of yellow means looking for the new, of change, of the liberation of schemes. Synonymous for vibrancy, extraversion, light weight, growth and change. It stimulates attention and learning, sharpens the mind and concentration. It stimulates digestion and helps to eliminate toxins through the liver and intestine. It is the color associated with the sense of identity, ego, extroversion, always denotes a strong personality.

  • I had such a lovely stay with Meta, and getting to know Trieste. The house is so comfortable, and Meta and her boyfriend are so generous with their time, conversation, coffee, etc. Meta even drove me to the train station when I left so I wouldn't have to wait for the bus on a Saturday morning. The house is incredibly clean, spacious, comfy, and the dog and cats are so wonderfully friendly. The location is gorgeous, you'll be in the green, growing hills outside of the city center. I always walked to and from the harbor, which made me feel like a local and gave me the opportunity to see the non-touristy parts of Trieste. Enjoy!

  • Meta is a very kind and welcoming person. She gave me advice for the visit of the city and she was there to meet my needs. Her home is beautiful and it is a very confortable and a well being place to be. I really enjoyed my stay and I have appreciated walking from home to city center. When you know the road straight to city center, it is not as far away as it seems to be when you take the bus. Many Thanks to Meta and Alberto for such a good first experience as airbnb visitor.

CIAO - HALLO - HELLO Mi chiamo Meta Nicole Shaw e come si può immaginare dal mio nome non sono italiana. Sono mezza tedesca (mamma) e mezza inglese (papà) nata in Germania/Baviera. Nel 2000 sono venuta in Italia/Friuli e sono rimasta qui. Ora mi trovo a Trieste, ma non so dove mi porterà ancora la vita. Sono molto legata alla natura e mi piace fare lunghe passeggiate oppure andare al mare a nuotare. Adoro i miei due gatti siamesi. Provo a seguire una vita più sana e naturale, anche per quanto riguarda l'alimentazione. Mi piace andare al cinema e leggere dei libri su temi specifici come la psicologia, la bio-edilizia, l'alimentazione e tutto ciò che contribuisce ad essere più indipendente dal consumismo. Quando il tempo me lo permette dipingo, faccio delle meditazioni oppure vado in giro per il mondo, preferibilmente con lo zaino in quanto mi piace molto conoscere le persone nella loro semplicità e purezza. Tutto ciò condivido lo con le persone che amo. Per quanto riguarda la mia professione sono formata come Coach e Trainer con specializzazione in comunicazione interpersonale ed operatrice di Biodanza. Benvenuti a casa mia ;-)
