Decent Apartment in Soresina

  • 3 of 5

We rented the apartment in Soresina since we wanted a central location that would allow us to visit several historic cities without too many long drives--Cremona, Bergamo, Piacenza, Pavia, and Brescia. That way we hoped to be able to stay in one apartment and avoid having to move every few days. However, it turned out that the drives to these cities were mostly pretty taxing. Next time it would be better to move our location after short stays to be closer if not in the cities we wanted to visit. Soresina itself is an average town with little to offer of historic interest. While the thought of staying in a former medieval monastery was attractive, the apartment's furnishings are on balance dated. Also the kitchen is not well equipped although the kitchen/dining table was large enough. Access to the far bedroom requires walking through the first bedroom off the kitchen/dining area. The far bedroom had a large wardrobe with hangers, but the wardrobe in the first bedroom does not open, and there is no closet and only a chest of drawers. The living room is large with a comfortable couch and comfortable chairs. The bathroom is off the living room. There is no tub, but the shower is large. It does not have an enclosure-- only a curtain, but the water drained well off its sloped floor. There are screens on all windows, but no AC. WiFi is available, and there is a small TV but only with Italian channels. The garden is pleasant with a table and chairs. The apartment is very quiet. If the owners are in residence, renters must park on a side street around the corner; spaces are usually available. Parking in the driveway requires backing out into a moderately trafficked street. So it helps to have someone in the street asking the traffic to stop. The local La Familia grocery store is the best place to shop for food items.The owner, his wife, and son were very welcoming, hospitable, and charming. They gave us a personal tour of their own residence created in the 19th

century out of the medieval monastery with its 19th century furnishings.

If you stay in Soresina, visit the large brick castle in nearby Soncino as well as the charming frescoed church Santa Maria di Grazie at the edge of Soncino. These sites were overlooked by the Michelin Guide but are well worth a trip.

A wonderful surprise and a unique experience

  • 5 of 5

We – a family of two adults and three small children – rented the flat "Bruna" for ten days in October, and even with some rainy days it was a wonderful stay. The garden with palm trees, flowers, cats was a perfect spot on sunny days for relaxation and play. The tables outside was the natural choice for lunch. In the evening we enjoyed the magic light, the atmosphere, and the silence on the terrace. The apartment was well equipped with kitchen utensils, books (including a lot of guide books), and cozy things to make us feel all at home.

We made a couple of day trips to Cremona, Bergamo, and Mantova – all worth seeing. In Soresina itself I recommend a visit to the Spaccio Latteria Soresinese (dairy outlet; but much more than just milk and cheese!) as well as to the restaurant La Bucca della Nonna.

Alberto, Bruna and Giacomo were very friendly and tried in every possible way to make our stay pleasant. We will – I think – always carry a piece of Soresina within us!

Culture, élégance et gentillesse

  • 5 of 5

Pour les amoureux de l'Italie, cette maison est un de ces paradis dont on rêve en se disant qu'on ne les trouvera jamais ou bien qu'ils seraient réservés à des bourses plus garnies que les nôtres. Une fois franchie la porte, le jardin est un ravissement qui offre paix et fraîcheur, à lui seul il mérite un séjour. L'appartement du rez-de-chaussée est confortable, bien équipé, décoré avec cette élégance qui donne l'impression d'être accueilli dans l'une de ces maisons de famille traversant les années pour servir de refuge aux générations à venir. Les hôtes des lieux sont à l'image de l'endroit, chaleureux et bienveillants et leurs conseils pour visiter la région sont précieux. À lui seul le charme de cette maison résume le meilleur de l'Italie.

Keurig, goed voorzien appertement

  • 5 of 5

We verbleven 2 weken in het appartement en hebben genoten. Erg aardige verhuurders die er alles aan doen om het hun gasten naar de zin te maken. Met de rolstoel was het heel goed te doen, alleen de ingang van de badkamer was een beetje passen en meten, maar het lukte. Er is een heerlijke tuin waar je na een dag uit helemaal tot rust komt en waar je niet het gevoel hebt dat je midden in het dorp verblijft. Al met al is het een aanrader!!

Tres bel endroit

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans l'appartement d'Alberto et Bruna. L'appartement est exactement comme décrit sur l'annonce très agréable et grand. Le jardin est très beau fleuri et très entretenu on s'y sent vraiment bien et très au calme. Étant en fauteuil roulant Alberto à eu le gentillesse de me fabriquer un plan incliné pour compenser la marche pour entrer dans l'appartement. Alberto parle bien français, il est très disponible ainsi que Bruna et Enzo qui nous a bien aidé pour porter tous nos bagages à l'arrivée et pour le départ. Il à fait très très chaud toute la semaine et donc dans l'appartement heureusement nous avions apporté notre ventilateur car c’était insoutenable. Je vous conseille de prendre des produits contre les moustiques car à peine dehors ils vous tombent dessus sans faire de bruit. . Il y a un marché le lundi. Si vous allez à Milan je vous conseille le magasin " Eataly " spécialités italienne. Pour les visites demandez à Alberto il est de très bons conseils.

Un petit paradis

  • 5 of 5

Passez le portail donnant sur la rue et vous entrez dans un petit paradis. Le jardin intérieur ,fleuri, arboré et agrémenté de sculptures vous donnerait presque envie de ne plus en bouger et d'en savourer le cadre et le calme. L'appartement qui, au rez de chaussée s'ouvre sur le jardin, est vaste et confortable, un espace privé à l'extérieur permet de profiter complètement de la douceur de vivre Italienne. Alberto et Bruna sont toujours disponibles pour guider les visites à faire ou tout simplement pour discuter un moment, c'est plus qu'agréable, on se sent tout de suite comme avec des amis.
