A bright Penthouse, designed by an architect, right in the historic centre of Milan. The flat is a maisonette covering the entire 4th and 5th floor (no elevator and no air conditioning but fans in all the rooms) with the added benefit of a roof terrace. It is located in a very lively part of a city ,( frequented by young people during week end in the warm part of the year, whereas calm other days and in colder seasons) , close to the canals district and the Duomo, a well known area for its restaurants, clothes special boutiques, bars, night life and historic sites. The flat has a happy feeling to it, also due to the light coming from the nine windows and a skylight. I am a painter so expect the flat to have a certain bohemian aesthetic and creative atmosphere.The flat it's thoroughly and professionally cleaned but the floors being old and stained in parts might not give that impression, but in reality it is .
The 130 square meters apartment contains one double living room, 3 double bedrooms,plus a single bed in a studio room, one and half bathrooms, and a large steel kitchen with eat-in space. The roof terrace is accessed by a wooden steep ladder, please take care going down from it (you can ask me for any details, there is a photo) The flat has old wooden floors throughout apart from old marble floors in the bathrooms. There is no air conditioning ( check on details what is available what is not ) but there are fans in all rooms.
Three bedrooms have a comfortable good quality queen size double bed that cannot be separated (one of which is a Japanese mattress made of natural latex and wool) ,then there is a studio (the room from which to access the terrace) with a single bed and the en-suite small toilette fresh towels and linens are provided. The access to the terrace it' s from a ladder(steep wooden stairs, please mind coming down ) I will be glad to help you with your suitcases as there is no lift but I can assure you that once on the top you will find it worth the exercise. there are two bathrooms one with shower,basin toilette etc the other has just a basin and a toilet.
Guests can of course use the WI-FI .The street also offers many shops, but you will find many more in Via Torino the way to go to the Duomo (the stunning Gothic main cathedral considered the very centre of the city) area, a short walk away. On the other side, a 5 minutes walk, you will find the atmospheric Navigli area with an interesting choice of charming restaurants, bars and vintage shops along its canals.I recommend the second canal, via Alzaia naviglio grande. Fifty meters from the flat you will find Colonne di San Lorenzo, the best-known Roman ruin in Milan (a row of columns taken from a temple or public bath house dating from the 2nd century) set in the beautiful piazza San Lorenzo with it's restaurants where you can dine outdoors.
Sitting on the terrace, you will enjoy the far reaching 360º views, including of the Duomo and Vetra park.
I am half Italian, a quarter English and a quarter Belgian. I speak Italian English and French, and I will be happy to help you with any queries about Milan and its services. The famous lakes (Como and Maggiore are just an hour by train from Milan centre) offers a unique mix of charms to lovers of lake tourism.
Staying on Lake Garda, Lake Como, Lake Maggiore or Iseo (just to name the largest and most famous), means immersing oneself in all the flourish of a lush nature that also has the power to renew the mind and body. The gorgeous landscapes of Lombardy’s lakes bring together the fascination of villages lost in time, near-ancient castles and monasteries, superb villas, places rich in history and character, and intriguing museums.All the lakes invite tourists to a singular and particular experience, beginning with Lake Garda, the largest lake in Italy. Here, the magnificent scenery was enough to inspire celebrated personages the likes of Catullus, Dante Alighieri, Goethe, Byron and Stendhal. Lake Maggiore, Italy’s second lake for extent, boasts spectacular islands with the Borromeo's estates villas and incredible botanic and faunistic gardens.-Lake Como (an hour away by train, very easy to get there and extremely cheap), with its upside-down Y form, gave to the world the inventor Alessandro Volta and the writer Alessandro Manzoni,The lake’s center (i.e. center of the Y) features perhaps one of the most famous and awe-inspiring Italian images in the world: the beautiful panorama that comprises the fantastic Villa d’Este (Cernobbio), Villa Serbelloni and Villa Melzi (Bellagio), and Villa Passalacqua (Moltrasio).
Some of the most beautiful Italian cities are near Milan : Bologna is just an hour by train, Verona 1hour 20 minutes by train then Mantova etc
