Right in the middle of Balön, the characteristic Flea Market and a few meters from Turin Eye, the hot air balloon that goes up to 150 meters in Pellegrino's garden. The Arsenal of the School Holden can be seen from the window as well as the Cortile del Maglio and SERMIG. The big market of Porta Palazzo is to fifthy meters. Not to mention, every second Sunday of the month, the Gran Balön Market. The area is full of restaurants, bars and the excellent Gelateria Popolare. In 5 minutes you are at the Roman Quarter and within 10 minutes walk you are in Piazza Castello. Area convenient to public transportation and also to cars, here you will always find parking.

Guest access

WiFi 100 Mb, in all house. Plasma TV 50" with pay tv Sky and Sky on Demand with hundreds of movies and TV series, also in the original language. Stocked library. Use of washing machine 10€.

Interaction with guests

Transfer Airport 20€ + parking. Available all the information to enjoy Turin. If you like, I can take you on a little tour of Turin I have known my whole life. This is my house, but I am a very discreet presence. If you like Barolo and Barbaresco we can set up a tour to Langhe UNESCO World Heritage.

Other things to note

A bathroom with shower is shared with me. BREAKFAST IS NOT included. For areas of common use, the refrigerator, or the TV, the computer and the books, just ask me! The use of wash machine is charged 10€.
The room is quiet, but in the summer, if you sleep with the windows open, and you are VERY sensitive to noise, sometimes, very rarely, there is a live concert in a bar downstairs, so I can provide earplugs.

The house is very nice. It's close to the city center and has a great view. You can see the city and also the alps (in a good weather). Giancarlo is also very nice and provided a great hospitality. It was a great stay :)

I was only in Turin for one night but I had a very nice stay at Giancarlo's place. He is friendly and accommodating and gave me great advice about seeing the city during my limited time. His apartment is in a very central and convenient location for exploring the city on foot, but was also quiet at night. The room was super clean with an extremely comfortable bed. I would definitely recommend staying with Giancarlo when visiting Turin!

I traveled a lot and I have also been around the world, but for some years are more sedentary. So I welcome the travelers ;-). I like art (I have several interesting paintings on the walls also mine) cinema, (by the way if you want to see you an HD movie on a 50", I have Sky On Demand and Netflix with hundreds of titles in the original language) I love Internet (20 Mb WiFi available in all house), music (all that you want but I love Jazz), food (someone say I am good to cook) and wine (that I drink only ;-). In the house, besides me, you will find Oscar, the cat and sometimes my son Lorenzo. the kitchen is in your disposal, such as the washing machine. For any questions, just ask! ;-)

Ho viaggiato molto e ho anche fatto il giro del mondo, ma da qualche anno sono più stanziale. Quindi accolgo con piacere i viaggiatori ;-). Mi piace l'arte (ho diversi quadri interessanti alle pareti anche miei) il cinema, (a proposito se volete vedervi un bel film HD su un 50", ho Sky on demand e Netflix con centinaia di titoli in lingua originale) adoro Internet (WiFi 20 Mb disponibile in tutta la casa), la musica (tutta quella che volete ma io adoro il Jazz), il cibo (dicono che sono abbastanza bravo in cucina) e il vino (che bevo e basta ;-). In casa, oltre a me, troverete Oscar, il gatto e qualche volta mio figlio Lorenzo. La cucina è a vostra disposizione, come la lavatrice. Per qualsiasi informazione, chiedete! ;-)
