We stayed in Gilda's apartment for 5 nights with our 4-year-old son, and it was a great stay. She describes the apartment as "fascinating" in her listing, and indeed it was. The furniture and decor was very Old World, but in a comfortable "at your very interesting Italian grandparents' house" way, not in a sterile, museum-like way.
The apartment was much bigger than we expected--huge even by American standards, much less European. It has a balcony on the exterior that overlooks the main pedestrian street of Bra. The interior courtyard also has a lovely balcony with a breakfast nook and a clothesline. There is a washing machine, bathtub with shower, stove/oven, and all the cooking equipment we needed. It was clean and very comfortable. The apartment does not have air conditioning, which is usually not a problem when traveling in northern Italy, but it was unseasonably hot during our visit. We ended up purchasing a table top fan for the bedroom, which solved the problem and will be there for the next guest who needs it.
There is a small garage in the courtyard that we were able to use most of the time. The apartment is in the same part of the building as a dentist, who uses the garage during his office hours (while we were there, that was only one afternoon, on Monday). Also, our relatively small car (a Peugeot 208) did not fit all the way in the garage, but we made it work okay. There is ample paid parking less than a block away, and free parking a five-minute walk away.
We could not have asked for a better location in Bra. Having been to Bra several times before (okay, one of us lived there for a few years), we're big fans of Cafe Converso, which is literally across the street from the apartment. In fact, Gilda left us a tray of cookies from Converso as a welcome gift, and it was such a lovely way to start our stay. We highly recommend them for breakfast and aperitivo. But we could walk to a huge number of shops and restaurants, as well, and the local market (Wednesdays and Fridays) is a block away. And it's a very easy drive to Alba, Barolo, etc., to get your wine fix.
We had a little confusion finding the place when we got there--the apartment shares a door with a dentists' office, as noted above, so we didn't realize that's where the apartment is. Don't be deterred by the dentist sign on the door; it's the same bell.
We loved our stay at Gilda's, and we plan to stay there again next time we are in Bra!
