What Past Guests Are Saying
Bristol, United Kingdom
We stayed here for a week and were welcomed on arrival by Giorgia's lovely Mum with whom we communicated by waving our arms at each other as we don't speak more than a handful of Italian words (getting better though). The apartment is large and nicely furnished with little clutter and if there's only 2 of you, you can easily lose each other. A real plus was the air-con in the front living room and another unit in the hallway outside the bedrooms without which we wouldn't have got much sleep as it was hot outside. The big high-ceilinged front room overlooks the street and is above and adjacent to a lovely ice-cream parlour downstairs, which is also well worth a visit. However, we didn't find it noisy and it would be easy to shut out completely anyway with the double-glazing and shutter. In fact, it was a lot of fun to watch the world go by outside from the balcony (another plus) and people coming and going from the massive church opposite (didn't really notice any bells). There are 2 sizeable bedrooms, each with a nice en-suite bathroom and plenty of cupboard space. The street has plenty going on and has a few places to eat and shop for groceries etc.. We tried the restaurant over the road and were the only customers, but the food was lovely. There's a great friendly pizza place a few hundred metres down the road too (turn left out of the door). Both these were the sort of family-run places that hardly exist in the UK anymore, so I would encourage people to visit them to find out what we're missing. There is also a bus stop to the centre a couple of hundred metres to the right (same side of the road) as you exit the building, which was useful. I never managed to pick up a bus timetable though as I couldn't find anyone in the station who could help out, so we just waited until one came along
I dealt with Giorgia for the booking and her communication in perfect English was exemplary. She seemed to reply to some of my enquiries almost before I'd hit 'send'!
The only drawback was a faulty air-con unit in the inner courtyard, which belonged to the ice-cream parlour and which kept us awake for a few days with it's howling. It then stopped - I guess it was repaired. This was nothing to do with the apartment though, so I'm not going to mark it down on that. The wi-fi signal could also do with a little boost.
All in all, a really nice stay and a really nice family who were a pleasure to do business with.
P.S. This review is a little late as I've only just realised I hadn't filled one out and I promised I would. Next time I'll write one before I leave so that I don't have to remember!
