My little house is a colorful open space on the canal Martesana, in a pedestrian and silent area. The flat has a living room with kitchen, a bathroom with double shower and washing machine, and a loft-bedroom with king size bed and open wardrobe.

The space

My apartment is set at the first floor within a 1700s building, very picturesque and typical of the architecture of old Milano (they are called "court house"). The house faces the canal Martesana, one of Milano's most beautiful, designed by Leonardo da Vinci and inaugurated by Lodovico il Moro in 1496; a rural landscape very particular and different from the rest of the city. From the window you'll see only trees and the water flowing; some ducks lives in here, and in daytime you can hear only birds and crickets!
On foot or by bike you can get beautiful, romantic walks or go along the canal until you reach the river Adda; not far from my house you can rent bikes provided by the public service (and also, if you prefer, rent a car by the public car sharing).
But the flat is also located just near the stop Turro on the Red Line underground (Line M1), so you can easily and quickly reach the main attractions sites.

Guest access

My house is fully at your disposal during your stay. It's well equipped for 2 people, but in case (with additional cost for breakfast and final cleaning) the living room can host other people with temporary accommodation.
The kitchen is fully equipped with refrigerator, induction hob (very quick, easy to use and safe!!) and microwave oven; all the suitable equipment is in here and I'll let you all the instructions. I'll provide you with the need for breakfast (bread, jam, butter, flakes, eggs, Italian coffee and different teas, milk, and sometimes - if I have time!! - homemade cake), and you'll have free access to drinkable water and seasonings.
In the bathroom you'll find all the basics - hairdryer included - and I'll provide you clean towels; you can use the washing machine and dry your clothes on the rack.
In the bedroom, a big and confortable bed (170x200cm, organic latex&cotton) will be ready to your rest with clean sheets; you'll use a part of the wardrobe.
No TV, but a high-speed connection is at your free disposal... and also my music collection :-).
There is no air conditioning, as it's not necessary: the thick walls of 1700s keep cool in summertime, and warm in wintertime. The door and window are soundproof and insulated.

Interaction with guests

I don't live here during your stay, so we need to accord before for check in and check out.
At your arrival, I'll be glad to share with you a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, giving you some tips about Milano so to make your stay easier. If I will be in Milano and free from commitments, we could organize a tour if you like the idea. I speak English and French but I need to practice my conversation abilities, so it would be nice for me!!
In any case I will let you a map with the main area attractions and public transport.

Other things to note

For long staying we need to accord about a deposit.

Very convenient location only 5 mins to Turro on foot, it's very quiet community by the riverside. even though it's an old building Giuse made her apartment unique cozy and clean, comfortable to stay at! you get to live the local life with her flat, she's a very helpful host, and artful at decorating her place! I think she handscrafted the decorative layer on her tables, a very special and beautiful touch! i think i'd come back next time I'm in milan, it'll be perfect for a couple to stay as well.

Clare and I had a wonderful experience staying at Giuseppina's apartment. It was extremely close to the metro (which is very easy to navigate) and a lot of close food options. Giuseppina recommended places to eat and visit which was helpful as well. She provided breakfast food for us to eat and showed us how to fix our own espresso! There are tons of supermarkets within a 3 minute walk as well. She also has great taste in music. The space was not huge, but had everything you need. Would definitely recommend staying here to friends!

Giuseppina was a wonderful host. She was very willing to help with any questions I had. I would say that her place is ideal for a couple only because there is one late comfortable bed. It's a bit of a tight fit if you have another person in a blow up mattress but my friend and I were still happy with the price and her apt is adorable. We were right on the red line underground near Turro station and we found it easily accessible to any place we wanted to go. I will definitely come back if I was to visit again. PS: breakfast was included which was ample to get by for 5 days.

Giuseppina's apartment is welcoming, comfortable and very neat. We enjoyed our short stay, and appreciated her availability and willingness to help. She even met us at the Metro station! The area is very nice, a great surprise with the canal running alongside the building. Overall, a real pleasure.

Giuseppina was a fantastic host! She offered to meet me at the subway station and we walked back to the unit. Upon arrival she made me an espresso and had a great conversation. The unit is situated beside a canal with a nice pathway which provides a safe way for a walk or run. What you want to know: - her place is exactly as described and very clean - VERY comfortable large bed, easily sleeps 2 people - unit is located 5 minutes from a M1 (red line) subway station, supermarket and pharmacy - she provided some complementary breakfast foods which was very nice - high speed wifi internet - quiet at night time, bit of noise during the day as people travel by on the canal path - host is very friendly, replies to questions promptly and respects your privacy I highly recommend staying here and will do so again when I visit Milan. Thanks Giuseppina!

I'm a private person and for me nothing is more important than personal freedom while respecting that of others. I like travelling a lot and being in contact with different cultures.
The contact with nature, green and light, are very important to me and this was the reason why I chose to live in this area of Milano: does not even seem to be in Milan, but you are!!
My current hobby is making objects and furnishings in "trencadìs" mosaic; my lifelong passion, without which I could not live (indeed!!), is music of all kinds - depending on my mood.
You are welcome in my little house on the canal!
