About the property

FREE WI-FI. Studio Apartment in the Pedestrian Centre of Turin.

FREE WI-FI. The Studio is on the top, 4th floor of an historical building of the 18th century. The apartment itself is on the courtyard side of the building so is tranquil and not disturbed by the street below. Being a Studio it consists of 1 room with a corner dedicated to an enclosed kitchen, bathroom and a low loft with double bed.

A little bit of history: The building in which the apartment is situated dates back to the 18th century. Design attributed to architect Gian Giacomo Plantery. Built in the first half of the 18th century by the Marquis of Fontana di Cravanzana, from a bourgeois family of Mondovì ennobled by Duke Vittorio Amedeo II in 1722. Construction work on this building, as on the Barnabiti project, in the same block beside the church of San Dalmazzo, adhered strictly to rules laid down by Plantery himself in the edict issued on June 26 1736 for the rebuiliding of Dora Grossa Street (now Via Garibaldi). The project was intented to change the Romanesque - medieval cityscape radically: facades were to be uniform in each block and all the buildings in the street equal in hight. Here the facade consists of a colossal order of pilasters with windows set in the projecting cornice. The atrium is particularly fine: the vault with lunettes and beautiful stucco decoration transforms a rectangular space into an octagon. In contrast to buildings grander in style the staircase rises beyond the first floor piano nobile, since the upper floors were to be leased.

I was born is South Africa and left the country at the age of 21 on a European adventure and ended up staying in Turin.

GINA DEL MISTRO purchased this apartment in 2014

Why GINA DEL MISTRO chose Centro

Why this property.... my father is a Property Broker and Developer and always said the best investment is property in the best area! It does not matter how big or small, it must be in the best area and Via Garibaldi together with Via Lagrange are the two pedestrain streets in the centre of Turin and to me via Garibaldi was my favourite street when I first arrived in Turin in 1990 and still is.

What makes this apartment unique

As you exit the buiding you are in the middle of a beautiful paved street scattered with cafes and shops and close to many of the best museums and most beautiful squares of Turin. From the landing that leads to the Studio there are views of the Mole Antonelliana, the Duomo of Turin, The Church of San Dalmazzo and the further away hillside.

What a lovely stay

The apartment is cosy, clean and welcoming. Gina is a wonderful host, very thoughtful and ready to help if needed. I would recommend the apartment to a single traveller or a young couple looking for a romantic place in Turin. Thank you Gina!

Quaint little apartment

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Gina, this apartment was an absolute joy to stay in. Loved the shower, the stonework on the floor made for a safe non-slip showering experience! The information folder was very thorough and informative, and this apartment is right in the centre of the shopping district and close to all the museums. Highly recommended.

Historic Location

  • 5 of 5

Met Gina at appointed time outside the building and from that moment we knew we had chosen the best apartment - the location could not be any better - historic Torino within an easy walk to many places.

The apartment is perfect for two people and has elevator access and air conditioning. The aircon was important this week as it had to be the hottest temperatures in Torino in years.

Gina showed us all we needed to know about the apartment - cannot say enough about how much we liked this place.

Since this was our first visit to the city, we took advantage of the 3 day Torino Card for museums as well as a 3 day transportation pass and the Tourist Service Pass - these are great bargains when combined. The Torino Tourism Office is a short distance away and their staff arranged everything.

Pequeño pero muy confortable departamento en una ubicación excelente que permite estar cerca de todo. Gina, su dueña, es extraordinariamente servicial y piensa hasta en los pequeños detalles para que el visitante disfrute la estadía. La ropa blanca (sabanas, toallas) es de muy buena calidad y la kitchinette tiene todo lo que se precisa. El flat está muy bien cuidado y esta impecablemente limpio. Gracias Gina.

una minuscola casetta sui tetti di torino! piccola ma ottimamente attrezzata, calda e comoda, ma soprattutto centralissima, a due passi da tutto.

un'ottima esperienza già dal primo contatto con la gentile proprietaria. da consigliare per scoprire la bellissima Torino, con un nido a cui tornare.
