Italian couple living in London. Francesco is into swimming, running and cycling (triathlon) veggie food, yoga and all that jazz. Manuel enjoys eating out and relaxing at home.
The house was very lovely and clean. Francesco and Manuel were very nice, too bad we didn't have that much time to chat!
Really nice neighbourhood, not too far from the underground and train stations.
The house is a fabolous little Victorian-terraced house, abysmally clean, neat and recently refurbished in a contemporary and luxury Italian way.
Ideally located in a very quiet and only 10 minutes walking throught the Clapham park to reach the nearest tube station.
Landlords are really nice and they make you very welcome.
I warmly reccomend this place.
Manuel and Francesco were gracious hosts who made us feel very welcome. Their home is ideally located, with easy access to a tube stop. The neighborhood is quiet, has all amenities, and a relaxed vibe. The room itself is lovely, looking onto an old British boys school--providing wonderful architectural views that capture the light of the setting sun beautifully. Francesco and Manuel have done a marvelous job remodeling their charming Victorian (?) terraced home -- the shower is AMAZING! Thank you, both!
Very nice hosts, lovely and nice house! I recommend it, we spent a great week end in London.
We had a wonderful stay in Battersea. Francesco and Manuel are very lovely people and their house is beautiful! Everything is clean and the bed is very comfortable. We had some nice chats with the guys. We would recommend this accommodation to everyone who is visiting London!
L'accueil charmant et bienveillant de Francesco et Manuel a contribué à la réussite de notre séjour.
Nous recommandons chaleureusement cette adresse. L'emplacement du quartier (moins de 30 min de Londres) ainsi que les services de proximité(épicerie Sainsbury) nous ont permis de rentabiliser au mieux ce court séjour.
Les lignes de bus 137 et 88 relient le cœur de Londres à Battersea.
Une première expérience avec airbnb qui nous a conquises.
We had a great time in London and loved our accommodations. Francesco was easily reachable via email and responded quickly. The room was lovely (with great creature comforts provided in the nightstand), the house is beautiful, and the hosts were warm and friendly. The only adjustment this prudish American needed to make was to the clear bathroom window. A workman on the roof next door meant no shower for me the first day.
My granddaughter and I spent a lovely week in Francesco and Emanuels house in Battersea. The room was fine and F&E are Nice and friendly. Nice and quiet area. Fine and easy bustransportation.
I give my best recommandations.
Nice place! Nice people! Fine facilities.
My granddaughter and I enjoyed staying at Francesco and Emanuels place. I was a tube person before now I am more of a bus person. You see a lot from a bus and if you miss one there is always another within a few minutes.
I had a fantastic stay with Francesco and Manuel! They have got an amazing house and I love the area. I used to live in Clapham. But I have to admit that Battersea is not too bad at all :-) I just wish I had the chance to spend some time with them. Unfortunately I was out and about all the time. But nevertheless we exchanged lovely notes on the kitchen table and they were amazingly helpful with arranging a possiblility for me to pick up the keys to the house in the middle of the day! Thanks for everything, and hope to stay again at your place!
Francesco and his brother with girlfriend were charming guests. Despite the inclement weather they hopefully had a good time and climbed Snowdon.!!!! ..They would be more than welcome back anytime .
Francesco & Manuel Stayed in my apartment for 4 nights. They are two very Nice persons who are the very model of good air bnb guests. They even baked a tasty cake ! All my Best recommendations ! its been a pleasure to Host these two guys
Francesco & Manuel are people who I would recommend to those who accommodate them because they are nice and helpful to human relationships.
Excellent communication to facilitate the management of check-in.
They used the apartment with respect and have left the apartment in good condition.
Personally I hope to have the opportunity in the future to host them again.
Thank you guys.
Francesco and Manuel are very nice, polite, respectful, social and warm guests. They helped me out a lot in things I couldn't do myself because of a broken shoulder. I definitely recommend hosting them!
Francesco & Manual only spent one night here, they are very nice guests to have!
Francesco and Manuel are simply wonderful people to host, to get to know, and the become friends with. We had the rather unique experience of getting to know each other in my apartment on the night that hurricane Sandy hit New York City (and as such, we were without electricity or running water in my apartment for both nights they stayed with me). That said, both of them were phenomenally positive, despite the frustrations of a major natural disaster and ruined travel plans due to canceled flights. They are truly great people, and I am happy that we met through airbnb. I highly recommend either hosting them or renting a bedroom in London from them. You won't regret it!
The only issue I had was your husband should of waited for me to give him the extra blanket ....not snoop around in another part of the apartment to find it and have me catch him snooping. Next time be patient when requesting something that can wait from your next host
Response from Francesco & Manuel:
We had already made clear that we were worried about warmth of the room, and all you had done was to dismiss our concerns. Only when what you mentioned happened we finally got an extra blanket.
Francesco and Manuel are two special guys, great host.
Clean and relaxed; always available.
Really polite, ready to help you, easy going and kind.
I have known Francesco and Manuel for about 5 years and I can confirm that they are the most amazing, reliable and easy going friends you could have. I have been to their house in several occasions and I have always enjoyed my time there. They are very hospitable, incredible hosts, not to mention amazing cooks! I would recommend them as hosts (and not only) with no doubts.
