In the heart of the Navigli district, my 540 sq.ft. flat very meticulously renovated and decorated with the utmost attention to detail. Warm and comfortable, it's located at the beginning of the pedestrian area that leads to the Naviglio Grande. Characteristic, historical and world-famous neighborhood, it's dotted with restaurants, cafes, bars, interesting shops, art galleries...anything your heart desires. Well served by public transportation (metro & trams) as well as bike-sharing stations.
My home is warm and welcoming, furnished with all comforts, an ideal solution for single travelers or couples. Located on the fourth floor, with lift, you enter by the walkway of a typical late 1800 Milanese galleried house. It has been restructured respecting the original finishings and conserving elements of the Lombard construction traditions. The beautiful terracotta floors marked with 150 years of movement, the original windows, shutters and doors I personally restored with infinite patience and passion.
I do not own a television and perhaps this lack will stimulate you to live the area during the evening, just walk out of the main doorway and you find immediately many pavement bars where to have an aperitif or after-dinner drink.
The bed is of high quality (solid wood slats mounted on rubber spheres) with a lattice and peat mattress and measuring 54in x 78in (FULL SIZE FRENCH BED
), not adapted for a more “robust” couple! In case you wish to sleep separately I will prepare the comfortable sofa bed (same size of the bed).
The kitchen is fitted with fridge, electric oven, toaster, kettle, washing machine, dishwasher and all the accessories I would like to find when I travel.
The apartment has autonomous heating, air-conditioning and wifi.
The bathroom is certainly small but has everything. Instead of a bidet there is a small shower next to the wc. Fresh bed linens and 3 towels per person will be provided.
Inside the apartment there are instructions for everything and a brief guide to the area.
Interaction with guests
I have lived and worked in this area for many years and know it very well, so do not hesitate to ask for information and advice! If you like you can come and visit me in my restauration workshop.
Here I am, Paola, restorer of antique and modern wood. Passionate about my work and the multitude of people I have met and frequent through it. Attentive and curious observer of the world around me. I spoil myself with cinema, a good book and a fantastic meal with friends. My glass is always half-full and a smile on my face throughout the day. I like people who are genuine, sincere and direct. Of course I love to travel in contact with the native people and hate to feel like a turist. I will look after you as I would like to be looked after.
Eccomi. Sono Paola, una restauratrice di legno antico e moderno. Appassionata del mio lavoro e della moltitudine di persone e personaggi che mi permette di incontrare e delle volte frequentare. Curiosa e attenta osservatrice del mondo che mi circonda. Non mi faccio mancare un bel film al cinema, un buon libro ed un'ottima cena con gli amici. Sono quella del bicchiere mezzo pieno e del sorriso che mi accompagna lungo tutta la giornata. Mi piacciono le persone genuine, sincere e dirette. Va da sé che amo viaggiare a contatto con le persone del luogo e mi mette a disagio sentirmi turista. Vi accoglierò come vorrei essere accolta io.
