  • Wonderful location - perfect hosts

    "From our initial enquiry to our actual visit, Paola and Mirco were so friendly and helpful it felt like we had known them for years. The apartment is in a perfect location both in terms of the views and the convenience for local restaurants and exploring this historic and beautiful region, We flew in via Pisa but Genoa and Florence are equally easy to reach. Parking at the apartment was a big bonus in Bocca di Magra which can get busy at weekends. Bocca itself is a great place to stroll around; people were very friendly and many spoke English. There is a range of places to eat from fine dining to a pizzeria. We thoroughly recommend La Lucerna located right next door for a special wining and dining experience (separately reviewed on Trip advisor) and Sette Archi, located near the marina for a fish lover's heaven. The apartment is spacious and airy, equipped to a high standard and extremely clean but best of all it immediately felt like home. The views from the very large terrace are magnificent and photographs do not really do it justice. Wifi worked well, as did everything else. Overall we have no hesitation in recommending this apartment, which we believe represented outstanding value for money. Thank you Paola and Mirco. We look forward to meeting you again."

  • Absolutely Fabulous!!

    "I want to say thank you to Enrico and Corrado! Our trip to Rome was heightened thanks to them and the beautiful apartment we rented from them! Corrado is the one I worked with for the booking. He was great! I had to move my trip up by a day and he was completely flexible and accommodating! He also arranged transportation to and from Fiumicino for us. Our driver was so sweet! I only wish I had gotten his name! When we arrived at the property, Enrico met us at the van. He was very informative and helpful! He also ran up 5 flights of stairs so that I could take the lift with my luggage! What a great guy!! The location of the apartment was perfect! We were less than 10 minutes walking distance to St. Peter's and the view of the dome from our terrace was something I could get used to! The apartment itself was outstanding! The beds were very comfortable, as were the couches. I honestly have no complaints about anything! Enrico and Corrado were such a pleasure to do business with! I hope I'll be able to rent this property again on my next trip to Rome! Grazie Mille!!!"

With a rich art heritage, art and culture enthusiasts can browse the many galleries and visit the art cities on the lakes and plains near Milan. The cathedrals and displays of ancient architecture are impressive, and the cobbled streets and quaint houses in the smaller towns make you feel as though you have stepped back in time.

Bergamo is a town in the northern part of Lombardy that is a popular weekend getaway destination. Located at the foothills of the Alps and near Lake Como the town is split into two distinct sections.

The town is the perfect base from which to explore and enjoy the many outdoor attractions that the region has to offer.

Many Lombardy, Italy villas can be found on the lake shores. The natural beauty of the area and peaceful atmosphere lends itself to relaxation.

Bakeries produce fresh bread daily and browsing the local markets for fresh fruit and vegetables is an experience all in itself.
