Hallo, I live in Pomaia and I love this place.
At Padova in Italy we spent four weeks in this big comfortable top floor apartment in October-November. It was late Autumn but very warm, most mornings a little misty or foggy but on clear days we could see the Alps with enlarging white snow caps over the town in the horisont. Very beautiful!
The flat is large with very big and long terrace or balcony. Modern flat and it was comfortable enough to feel home. The house was quiet and warm. Neighbours were real Italians and talkative even in English, if needed.
Trams are running to the stations and city center often and quickly. It is five minutes walk to the tram stop. By train yuou can travel very often in half an hour to Venice, or Vicenza, or Belluno, or Ferrara and to many other towns which are two or three thousand years old with very old ruins and buildings from fortresses to palaces and churches. Very interesting.
Padova itself is small but magnificant town and full of memories from antica up till our days. You can spend many days walking in the old town along charming narrow streets and paths.
The flat serves well as a base for all those trips to surrounding areas. And it is important that it serves very well travellers who want to visit Venice but do not want to pay everywhere Venice extras.
The flat is in residential area. You have to walk 100 - 200 metres, yards, to the shops. They are well stocked with ordinary international and Italian food and wines, of course.
And the tap water is drinkable.
We have good memories. Thanks to the owners!
