Matteo welcomed us at the arranged time. The home and location are as described. We took the bus to Oxford and had a really good time. Martina went shopping especially for Ron, who does not drink tea or coffee. Breakfast was set up on a lovely sunny table each morning. Unfortunately the springs in the mattress were not comfortable, but we still enjoyed our stay.
It was a nice and cosy home!! Provided us breakfast and delicious biscuits! It felt very heartwarming and the home was a nice distance away from the busy city centre!
Parfait ! Martina et Matteo sont très chaleureux, on se sent très vite chez eux comme chez soi ! La maison est très jolie, ainsi que la chambre qui est grande et très agréable, car calme et lumineuse. Le quartier est très tranquille, et l'accès au bus bien pratique.
Merci à tous les deux, j'espère avoir l'occasion de revenir dans cette magnifique ville et avoir le plaisir de vous revoir. Une adresse à recommander !
Had a very nice and pleasant stay with Matteo and Martina. They were very friendly and made my stay pleasant. They offered breakfast which was a huge plus for me. The room was spacious and clean.
It was lovely to stay with Matteo and Martina in Oxford.
They gave us quick responses to any questions we had. The room was even nicer than in the photo. The house was lovely decorated with many little things and a green garden and flowers in the back. The couple generously let us use their wahser for free though we only stayed for 2 nights, as we travelled with a baby and had lots of stuff to wash, which was greatly appreciated.
In the morning, they gave us nice breakfast arrangment on the table before going to work. And the kitchen was well equipped, in which we could prepare our meals to save money.
The location was very good, too. Just a few steps from the bus stop that runs until mid night to and from the center of Oxford.
Though we didn't have time to chat much, but I can say that Matteo and Martina are very kind-hearted host and lovely to be with.
