The apartment was very clean and homely. Gina took the time to talk to us about the local area and other places to visit . Gina lives on the ground floor of the building so she was always on hand for anything we needed . We used public transport to get around, there is a bus stop at the top of the road and also a ferry pier just a kilometre away.

The owners are extremely friendly, helpful and respectful. They were on hand with cake and bread when we arrived and responded quickly to the couple of questions we had. They also suggested a visit to Monza Park and Royal Villa on our way back to Malpensa airport, which was a great idea for our two young children. All in all, a great location for a holiday. We would definitely consider returning if we ever go back to that part of Italy. Thank you - Grazie Mille!
