Great apartment in very central location. Markets right at your doorstep. Good secure car space. Great heating. Very helpful host.
My husband and I, our 2 sons and my mother thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Bra. The apartment was spacious and had all the necessary amenities. Barbara was very responsive and her mother and father were very helpful. The apartment's location is very central and there are many good cafes and restaurants within an easy walking distance. The weekly market is located just below the building and the parking space is absolutely great.
Barbara's house in Bra was very well located and her mother was very helpful in letting us in and helping us get settled.
The house had ample space and comfortably fit 4 people. Overall we had a nice stay in Bra.
Die Wohnung war toll! Zentrale Lage, Parkplatz im Hof, Bars und Restaurants direkt vor der Haustür.
Die Kommunikation mit Barbara war schnell und
unkompliziert. Schlüsselübergabe hat prima geklappt.
Falls wir wieder nach Bra kommen buchen wir die
Wohnung sicher wieder!
Barbara's apartment was perfect, and communication with Barbara couldn't have been better. She was super responsive, and helped with advice on local restaurants etc. and then there's her apartment itself- perfectly located, and perfect in every way for me, my husband and our son for 3 days in Bra - walking distance to everything in Bra, and easy access to nearby towns and attractions.
Barbara’s apartment is in the gorgeous old part of Bra, and the apartment itself is wonderfully comfortable and huge – my boyfriend and I only stayed for one night, but a family could easily stay here for a whole vacation. There are plenty of rooms and a full kitchen, and we were able to park our car in the secure back courtyard too (after a bit of a hunt to find the driveway – it’s just around the corner from the main street, behind what look like regular doors, before you get to the next intersection).
Barbara was very easy to get in touch with and communicate with over the phone and her mother was there to greet us, show us how the locks work, show us around the apartment and give us the remote control for the driveway/courtyard. And checkout was very easy: we just locked up and left the keys when we were ready to leave. There are certainly some more industrial-type areas surrounding Bra, so I would DEFINITELY recommend Barbara's apartment for anyone staying in Bra and wanting to see the beautiful part of town, or even wanting to visit nearby Alba or Asti. Alba is not very far away by car, and we had a wonderful night dining al fresco and walking around the streets there. In the morning, there are plenty of great, quiet cafés in Bra, and lots of wandering to enjoy.
