You can also relax staring at the sea from the windows.
And we have also a cat to caress.

The space

We are Shel and Francesca, two artisans who love recycling, art, travelling and our town. When find this house we immediately felt in love for it. Floors are original from 1903, as doors, windows and the two tiled stoves. We only renewed the power and water lines and furnished the rooms following our philosophy.
You'll find a single tiny room for lone travellers and, although the position of the house, is very quiet. There's another double room available for hosts, so it's possible to find other people during your stay.
You can reach the house easily by bus from the Central Station or you can leave your car here and forget it until you leave. Parking is easy, here.
From here you are near almost everything: the old town, museums, restaurants, wine bars, night life, supermarkets, street markets, boat lines to Muggia (a old Venetian town) or to the beaches of Sistiana, main bus lines and taxis. From our windows you can enjoy charming spots of the sea, the rooftops and the green hills around the city.
Breakfast is provided. There will be space in the fridge for you if needed. The bathroom it' separated from the toilet, both shared with the occupants of the house. There is access to wi-fi and washing machine.
We can agree to an arrival time but if we have guests staying from the night before you will not be able to enter the room until 1300 but you are welcome to leave your things here and get a key if an early arrival is expected. Check out: No rush... just give us enough time to prepare the room for the next guests who may arrive at 1300. Thanks!

Francesca is the perfect host: she is extremely nice, she gives you all information you need, she has definitely the most beautiful cat in the world:-) and you feel like at home (from the first second)! She is like an old friend you visit - I enjoyed our conversations in the morning and her coffee and breakfast. The flat is beautiful and clean and I loved the atmosphere there. You can see the whole town from your window. It takes only 5-10 minutes to the main places and you will walk through a nice area with beautiful streets and parks. I would love to come to Trieste again and I hope to stay with Francesca again. Thanks for all! Francesca ist die beste Gastgeberin, die man sich vorstellen kann: unglaublich nett, freundlich hilfsbereit. Ich habe unsere Gespräche genossen, sie hat mir viele Tipps gegeben und man fühlt sich sofort wohl in dieser Wohnung. Alles ist sehr sauber und schön eingerichtet. Der Kater ist sehr schön und gut erzogen - ich hätte ihn am liebsten mitgenommen:-) Man kann alles zu Fuss erreichen, es ist eine sehr schöne Wohngegend, in der man sich auch zu später Stunde sicher fühlt. Ich würde sehr gern wiederkommen! Mille grazie per il perfetto soggiorno!

The flat is in a very peaceful and quaint neighbourhood. Francesca was kind, helpful and very cheerful - having a chat with her in the morning / evening was a nice addition to my stay. The single room feels more spacious than the photo thanks to the high ceiling and was very comfortable. Wish I could've stayed longer!

Francesca was amazing:friendly, funny, always doing the best to make you feel at home. The house was perfect, in the centre of the city, and with a magnificent view. Francesca offers an amazing breakfast and many many useful tips regarding your staying in the city! Trieste is so beautiful that you have the feeling you are in a movie. "Maison La Belle Vue" makes you feel you are in a Woody Allen's movie. And Peto, the most charming cat, is the king of the house.

Francesca was a super hostess and so was her cat Peto. She suggested places to eat and places to visit. I had to climb lots of steps to get to her place, but for me it was no problem. Five minutes from the main square. Great location.

Maison La Belle Vue User ProfileMaison La Belle Vue is a superhost.

We are a couple of artisans, a skilled seamstress and a cobbler, mechanic, handyman, screw-driver man, born here in Trieste. We love travelling, reading, arts, photography, mountains, good eating and meeting new people.
We start to appreciate the art of recycling and re-using before the spreading of this trend and we follow the DIY philosophy. In our home you'll find some odd pieces, made by scrap materials, sweat and fantasy. Our nest is a ceaseless work in progress, and sometimes we are astonished by our own work too and by the changes we did.
As lovers of the good life, we like to give all the best to our hosts. We can suggest hidden restaurants, fancy places to visit or the best ways to reach a choosen destination.
So, if you want to LIVE and LOVE Trieste and its neighborhood, not as a standardised "mass tourist", but as traveller, as explorer, we can help you.
Oh! We forget! We host a cat, also. He's quiet and very friendly, sometimes he seems to be the real landlord.
