Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • We all enjoyed our stay at Barbara's place in Bra. Conveniently located in the town centre close to coffee shops (for the necessary morning Espresso) right above a bakery and with its own private parking space, the apartment has everything you need for a visit to this wonderful part of Italy. Barbara is very helpful in coordinating arrival and her mother was friendly and warm when greeting us and showing as around the apartment. We hope to stay here again!

  • Barbara's place was great, old fashioned but beautiful and light and very spacious. It's in a great location and having the parking was a great help as we had loads of luggage. I would definitely stay here again if I'm in Bra!

  • Appartement agréable, avec parking, situé en plein centre de Bra, à deux pas de tous les commerces, restaurants, et de la gare. Une fois la voiture garée on peut tout faire à pied dans la jolie ville de Bra et profiter pleinement des délicieux commerces de bouche.
    L'appartement est équipé en électroménager ce qui simplifie la vie.
    Les deux chambres donnent sur rue ce qui peut gêner les voyageurs au sommeil léger en fin de semaine.
    Sympathique marché juste en bas le vendredi matin.

  • The three of us very much enjoyed our stay.

    The apartment had a decent, small kitchen, a nice living room with dining table and sofa, one bedroom plus one one study with a pull out couch. The mattress in the pull out couch was nice and cushy. The apartment had plenty of heat which was great since it was cold during our February visit.

    The location was great - about 2 blocks north of Piazza Roma (which has a small playground for kids). Great location for food - cafe converso is one block north, pizzeria santa lucia is one block south for tasty pizza and about 2 blocks to the north east is Osteria La Bocca Buona for a fancy dinner. There is also a good sized grocery store about two blocks to the west, and a cash machine across the street.

    Also it was fantastic to have an off street parking place in a secure (gated) courtyard!

    When we come back to Bra we will stay here again!

  • The apartment is beautiful and literally in the heart of Bra. You can reach restaurants, bars, shops and the farmer’s market on foot as they are right around the corner. The rooms are well furnished, with everything you need. They are clean and spacious. Also, they are very comfortable and nicely decorated. When I come back to Bra, I am staying here again.
    I would definitely recommend booking the apartment while in Bra. It is a great place to stay.

    Thanks again.
