A beautiful one bedroom apartment in the center of Vicenza, in a perfectly refurbished, elegant 18th century building. 7 minutes on foot from Piazza dei Signori, the central square home to some of Palladio's architectural mastepieces, and 7 minutes on foot from the railway station, it also features a private parking lot.
Fully equipped, like a proper home, and furnished with early 20th century pieces, it has a twin or doublebedroom, a living area with a french size sofa bed, armchairs and a table for 4/6, a very spacious kitchenette, a bathroom with bathtub, and a big storage/laundry room.
A few dozen meters away you find all the typical grocery stores you could wish: bakery, butcher, fruit and vegetables shop, and a gourmet store that also sells any kind of house care products.
We just ask you to behave as you would like your guests to behave! And to treat the apartment and its content in accordance.
In particular, we ask you:
- not to be loud, expecially when in the staircase.
- to always check that the main gate and the building door close, when you go in and out.
- not to host more people than the number we agreed on.
When you leave, please throw away all the garbage (containers outside the gate on the right) and do not leave perishable food in the fridge.
A very pleasant stay in a conveniently situated apartment, within easy walking distance of the station, shops and central Vicenza. We had a wonderful welcome and were provided with a lot of useful local information which helped us make the most of our short stay.
I stayed for five nights at Elena's property in Framura which is absolutely stunning and the best Airbnb property I have stayed at. Every detail of the apartment is perfect from the jawdropping views from the terrace and garden to the artfully scattered antiques and knick knacks to cupboards neatly labelled and stacked with everything that you could possibly need for your trip.
The apartment is perched high above sleepy little Framura beach from where you can hop on a train down to the Cinque Terre or, if you have a car, zip up the highway to Portofino. Leaving the property at all can be quite difficult though given the bed so comfortable that getting up is a pull and the sun-soaked terrace/ hammock with a view/sun-dappled garden - each the perfect place to curl up with a good book and a bottle of wine.
Elena was the perfect host from the second that we first booked. After confirming the reservation she sent us a three page list of driving instructions, useful numbers and tips on where to eat, shop and adventure in the surrounding area. After we arrived she checked in a couple of times via email with further ideas of things to do.
We left with heavy hearts and very hapy memories of the most magical corner of the Italian Riveria. We can't recommend enough staying in Framura or any other property hosted by Elena.
Elena was a great host! Communication was super easy. The apartment itself is large and clean. The bedroom and bathroom area are recessed so it is a little dark down there but that would be the only negative to this beautiful space. The neighborhood was central and safe with a little park just next door and a supermarket one block away. Great restaurants in the area and easy to navigate.
Even though we never had the opportunity to meet in person, Elena was very helpful in every way and our communication via mail and sms went without a hitch, revealing a warm person with a lovely sense of humor who deeply cares about Cortina and it's special history. We were four people come to town to participate in an ultra marathon and the apartment was a perfect base for exploring Cortina and it's surroundings beforehand and for relaxing our legs and feet afterwards. The apartment is cosily furnished and has smart storage solutions for all the stuff you can think to bring. Finally, the view from the terrace of Cinque Torri is fabulous, with the flat facing away from the road and towards the magnificent mountains that we raced in. We only hope that it will be possible to book a week here in the winter to come skiing, as we definitely plan on returning to this beautiful town.
Staying at QUINTESSENTIAL STYLE was actually an experience! A wonderful experience to remember!! The minute you walk through the outside door you feel right at home!! The apartment itself is AMAZING!! Clean, modern, impressive, seeing is believing!! And Elena, she is the best. Made our stay comfortable and was on hand for anything needed and full of information, a wonderful person!! Can't wait to stay there again and she has other places too!!
This apartment was awesome, the location, host, decor, and everything exceeded expectation.
We loved our stay in Milan.
Elena was very prompt and enthusiastic with her email replies and went out of her way to accommodate our very early morning arrival.
She met us on arrival and again upon our departure; even arranged a taxi to the terminal for us - very professional and informative, could not ask for more from a host.
The apartment was wonderful,
Spacious, clean and beautifully furnished, the pantry and fridge were well stocked; made us feel welcomed and able to enjoy our stay as soon as we arrived.
Located in a nice, quite neighbourhood, well serviced by tram and Metro and close to many restaurants and local shopping.
Very enjoyable walks into Milan Central of around 15-20 mins.
Thanks Elena, hope it is not too long before we can your hospitality again.
Elena was a great and responsive host. The logistics went without any problems. The property has a truly spectacular location; high on a cliff looking south towards the spectacular coastline around Framura and Levanto. The house is actually more like an attached bungalow with a private garden and terrace. It looks just like the pictures (but the view is much better). The house was big enough for the four of us. It's very nicely appointed and has very pretty/casual decoration. The address is very difficult to find so ask around. It's a little remote and far from the Cinque Terre, but Framura (5'min away) is a tiny local town with no tourists and has a train station that connects to all the other towns. Highly recommended.
Elena è un eccellente ospite. Non appena arrivati mi ha fornito diverse e utili informazioni per rendere il mio soggiorno indimenticabile. Inoltre, ha fatto di tutto per venire incontro alle mie esigenze di viaggio, permettendomi sia un early check-in sia un late check-out. Per quanto riguarda l'appartamento, non esistono parole idonee per descriverne la ricercatezza e raffinatezza. Ogni oggetto è sapientemente (email hidden)ente è lasciato al caso!
Me and 2 friends of mine have spent 3 nights at Elena's property, we enjoyed it very much. It is very clean, big in size, so stylish, has an excellent location (very calm area) and well equipped with all the necessary stuff in the kitchen, the living room and the bathroom.
Elena is an easy going lady with a lovely personality, she's very kind, punctual and helpful. She helped me out getting my things done easly like booking a taxi to the airport and provide me with the directions to Milan's attractions. I have communicated her via email, SMS and voice call and she was very responsive.
I really recommend Elena's apartment and for sure I will rent it again in my next visit to Milan.
My family came to visit me for a few days in Milan and stayed in Elena's wonderful flat. Decorated with great taste it is an experience in itself to stay for some time in this apartment. Very well located we found it very easy to navigate the city from it. Elena was a very available host showing care for every little detail. We all enjoyed to stay and will love to come back any time.
conosco Elena tramite un comune amico e ho capito che è abbastanza speciale. mi ha (website hidden) al deal di Airbnb e ne sono felice, anche se ho troppo poco tempo per farlo bene. Forse lo farò fare a lei :-)
I'm using airbnb everyday to travel and to host people. I'm sure Elena should be in a tie for the number one spot / host worldwide. She is wonderful and you'll be fine staying at Elena's apartments.
Elena is a special friend, who has transformed her love for Milan and for having guests in her hospitable house into a real passion. Spending some time with her, for a chat, a drink, a spaghetti dish, sharing experiences and feelings, is like a warm hug.
Elena is a wonderful person, full of interests and energy. Her houses are great! charming, elegant, comfortable and well organised. I recommend a stay at her place very highly!
Elegant, charming and reliable, I can think of no better host than Elena! And I have been to her beautiful house, a recipient of her hospitality. You can't go wrong.
Elena is the ultimate host and a great friend and evangelist for Airbnb. She's always extremely caring and helpful with her guests and she is so passionate about hospitality that she spends a lot of time and energies convincing people to host and explaining why it is such a great experience to look for. She is also a natural born connector. She's very charming and spending time with her is always a pleasant experience.
I met Elena last year first time, I was just arrived in Milan and we spent a very warming and smiling evening in her beautiful apartment. Elena is a charming, helpful and open mind person and her house reflects her personality. I'm sure everyone will appreciate elena's exquisite hospitality by taking back a great experience from its stay.
Elena is a wonderful person, kind-hearted, trustworthy and helpful, as well as brilliant, open, sympathetic and witty. I've known her for quite a few years, first as a fellow translator, then as a friend, and I love her charming, easy-going ways. She's a generous friend and an exquisite host, and her Milan apartment is absolutely beautiful.
Ho conosciuto Elena tramite un caro amico nella sua bellissima casa di Milano che affitta con airbnb. Abbiamo scoperto di avere molti amici in comune. Elena è una persona socievole, ospitale, colta, affidabile e un'ottima cuoca! Non potreste trovare di meglio!
I met Elena trough a good friend of mine in her gorgeous house in Milan, the same she rent trough airbnb. We grasped we had many friends in common. Elena is a sociable, hospitable, cultured, reliable person and a very good cook! The best you can find!
ho conosciuto Elena qualche anno fa per vie legate al mio e al suo (website hidden) siamo poi incrociate sempre su interessi comuni e infine l'ho ritrovata qui su Airbnb da pochissimo tempo. Mi ha fatto molto piacere sapere che era un host perchè è una persona con grandi doti : intelligente, colta e molto comunicativa, organizzatrice elegante e discreta. Trova anche il modo e il tempo di fare incontrare piacevolmente noi host del Ticinese . Mi piace ! Ora sto partendo, ma la aiuterò volentieri per organizzare altri incontri. silvana
Elena is a wonderful person, full of interests and friends, her houses reflects her personality: charming, elegant, comfortable and well organized. Elena is always helpful and makes you feel at home. I cannot recommend Elena and her places enough.
Elena is a friend. She has a beautiful and charming apartment in Milan, very well furnished and cosy. She is the first person who spoke to me about Airbnb which I did not know and she was so enthusiastic about it that I decided to apply myself and rent my apartment as well. And I know how much she cares about her guests, and that she really loves to share it with others.
Elena is a dear friend. She is a charming, caring and eclectic girl. A brilliant midnight talker to spend the time with. No wonder she is the perfect host able to make people feel at home !
We have hosted Elena in our Airbnb house in Naples. She has been very nice and treated our house like it was her. She is a trustable person. Highly recommendable!
Elena is a perfect host, a lovely person and has a special taste for design and furniture. Her house is located in a charming central area of the old city of Milan. Elena has personally designed the overall looking of the apartment, that feels cozy and looks postmodern, a nice contrast with the old Milano buildings of the surroundings. I know Elena by Airbnb meeting: she always have great care of his guests by being punctual and delicate!
Elena is a very good friend of mine since a very long time ago: we were in the same class at the high school. She is a very nice and sensitive person.
She loves having guests at home both in Milan (where she lives) and in Framura (where she owns a beautiful holiday house). She cooks very well and loves doing it for her friends.
As Elena knows a lot of interesting people, spending time with her and her friends is always a great experience. Her houses are both located in very beautiful and convenient spots, fully furnished (with great taste) and very well organized.
Elena is a generous and sharing person and always was a great friend for me.
I spent a couple of months in Elena's appartment and I can say that is very comfortable and spacious. The location is perfect, in the center of Milan you can easly reach Duomo square by walk.
Conosco Elena da dieci anni e insieme abbiamo condiviso vacanze e tempo libero. Ho un bellissimo ricordo di un'estate nel Mediterraneo, in una bellissima casa sotto il vulcano, a Stromboli. E' una persona generosa, affidabile e molto simpatica!
Elena is the consummate hostess! She makes you feel right at home. Her place is absolutely lovely and filled with old world European charm! It is also in a marvelous location. I recommend a stay at her place very highly!
Elena è gentile, puntuale, affidabile, sincera. La sua casa, così luminosa e accogliente, sembra fatta apposta per invitarvi gli amici. Semplice ma curato in ogni particolare l'appartamento di Elena è l'ideale per chi vuole trascorrere un soggiorno tranquillo a Milano abitando a due passi dal centro. Il quartiere è delizioso e non manca nulla dalla panetteria in via Marco D'Oggiono al Bar Cucchi (fantastici gli aperitivi!) dalla gelateria di Enrico Rizzi in via Cesare Correnti al ristorante da Giordano il Bolognese in via Torti.
I know Elena since more then 10 years through a close friend of mine. In more recent timeI have been in contact with her for job reasons in which she is very competent, serious worker and well considered. I've always admired her very pleasent way to deal with people, ability in networking and make friends comfortable and help them to solve any kind of problem! Actually she has been the one who introduced me in the world of airbnb as a host (before I've been thinking it was only for kids like mine or a northern habit in Stokholm, London and Berlin), giving me important suggestions and organizing advises. She is definetely a perfect host, a good friend and a nice person to meet
We had a most terific stay in Elena's beautiful appartement. It is very well equipped and has a lot of "charme". Also it is very well situated in a really interesting corner of Downtown Milano and has good access to all the rest. We can only highly recommend this nice apartment.
We have also been several times in Framura. This is a jewel, both the location and the apartment. It has probably one of the most astonishing views of the whole ligurian coast down to La spezia. Breakfast there in the morning is just overwhelming and makes you feel reborn. It is a place for people who enjoy long walks in nature, swimming along wild coasts and relaxing in the evening on a mediterranean terrace.
I know Elena through my husband, they met in Japan 20 (!) years ago where they studied together. Since then they have stayed in touch and finally, we managed to meet in Milan with our families. Elena is a very generous and kind host, we really felt like at home by entering her appartment - one can feel that people feel invited. Although it rained a lot during the time we spent in Milan, Elenas appartment was so light and cosy, that it didnt matter at all. Also, she really inspired us by the idea of sharing a beautifull place through airbnb that we consider of doing that too with our appartment in Vienna .... thanks Elena!!
conosco Elena da tanti anno, è la mia vicina di casa.
è una persona gentile, allegra, intelligente, divertente ed affascinante.
ho trascorso con lei diverse serate di chiacchiere e riflessioni, e mi piace il modo in cui ragiona e riflette.
credo che ci si possa fidare completamente di lei e che soggiornare nella sua casa potrà essere una esperienza del tutto appagante.
ah, se vi serve il sale, lo zucchero o un pò di farina..io sono al piano 3°! :))
Elena has been a good friend and fellow translator for many years. She is intelligent, generous and witty and has a particular ability in networking. I'm sure she is an impecable host and guest :-)
Elena is very welcoming and friendly.
The apartment is charming, very functional and quite, located in central and characteristic neighbourhood of Milan.
I love her flats in Milano and Framura, and I'm sure I'd love the ones in Cortina and Vicenza
Elena ama vivere bene: le sue case sono sempre accoglienti, proprie, attrezzate e hanno un tocco di raffinatezza raro nella semplicità. Chi ha avuto occasione di trascorre anche solo poco tempo negli spazi che lei rende unici, sa bene cosa intendo. Non posso che consigliare a tutti i suoi appartamenti di Milano e Framura, e immagino che quelli di sua madre di Vicenza e Cortina siano altrettanto piacevoli.
Conosco Elena da molti molti anni e mi ha sempre colpito la sua naturale e semplice eleganza. Cura molto i particolari, è un' ospite molto attenta alle vostre esigenze e vi metterà sempre a vostro agio!
Conosce tutti nel quartiere e sarà in grado di informarvi sulle iniziative locali se vorrete soggiornare in cittò da veri...milanesi!
Elena is a perfect hostess. She's born to be a hostess. She gives you everything you need, before you think you need it. And she deeply cares for you.
