About the property

On 2nd floor, one bedroom apartment sleeps 2 + 2

Welcome to Pollicina! I’m pleased to welcome you in this lovely apartment owned by my parents. They bought it three years ago and they immediately fell in love with its location in the centre of Desenzano. In fact it’s enough to open the main door for being immediately surrounded by the warm life of the city. Fun and relax are always assured. That’s why they decided to give the opportunity to experience it to the guests of Pollicina.

The apartment opens onto a functional kitchen with kitchenware and appliances and a dining area with a sofa bed. Adjacent is the master bedroom furnished with a large closet. (there’s also a cot for one child max 3 years old). The bathroom, near the room, is very spacious. In it you can find a shower with bathtub, washing machine, dryer and towels for the beach. Whole Linen is supplied by us.

In winter the apartment is heated independently, in the summer there is an air conditioning system. Guests will also find a TV with decoder and satellite channels. For a relaxing moment you can enjoy the books available in the Free Library or play table games.

Despite being in the centre of Desenzano, the apartment is easily accessible by those arriving by car or by those arriving by train. The train station is a few meters far from the apartment, just across the street outside the train station that arrives in the downtown. Therefore it’s an excellent solution for those who like to travel by train. When you want you can easily reach the train station and take a daily train for visiting cities of art and fashion close to Desenzano (Verona, Venice, Mantua, Milan). Many trains stop every day in the station of Desenzano.

For those coming by car it's possible o find a parking space at one of the many paid or free parking near the apartment. Upon arrival I will deliver on a map which indicates the different parking lots.

Location, location and a fabulous host!

  • 5 of 5

Elena's flat was perfect for us and is steps away from the main square, a restaurant with a very tasty version of vegetarian pizza and a gelato shop. It was an easy walk to the cathedral and castle. The flat was comfortable, with plenty of room for the two of us. The kitchen had everything we needed. Bathroom is roomy and has a washing machine which we quickly learned how to use. Elena was a wonderful host, meeting us at the train station when we arrived and taking us back to the train station when we left. She had snacks and bottled water for us at the flat when we arrived. She provided lots of information about Desenzano and the surrounding area. The flat and Elena were great!

Lovely apartment in the heart of Desenzano

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious and has everything you need. The air conditioning kept the whole apartment cool even on the hottest of days.

The location is excellent and the ferry only a few minutes walk away and the beach and the train station around 10 minutes walk away. Visiting the nearby places was easy.

Elena was very welcoming and particularly helpful and we would recommend this apartment.

Lovely apartment and great location

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband stayed in this apartment for 5 days. It was a lovely little apartment right in the centre of Desenzano - you can reach shops, restaurants, the lake itself and the marina of Desenzano within minutes.

The apartment itself was very clean and had everything you needed. Elena was a pleasure to deal with and even picked us up and dropped us off at the train station. What better service could you ask for!

I highly recommend this apartment to anyone - we will be going back soon!

Schöne Wohnung und perfekter Standort

  • 5 of 5

Wir (2 Erwachsene) fanden eine sehr saubere und sehr gut ausgestattete Wohnung vor. Die Vermieterin ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Die Wohnung liegt innerhalb der Fußgängerzone und war für uns der ideale Standort für Ausflüge mit Schiff und Bahn (zum Beispiel Mailand) aber auch mit dem eigenem Pkw, denn die nächsten beiden gebührenfreien Parkplätze liegen in einer Entfernung von weniger als 600m. Für das Be- und Entladen des Pkw kann ein gebührenpflichtiger Parkplatz in rund 100m Entfernung zur Wohnung genutzt werden. Auch Dank des perfekten Wetters war es ein toller Aufenthalt.

Nette Vermieterin, zentrale Lage für Stadtliebhaber

  • 4 of 5

Elena ist eine sehr nette Vermieterin. Die Wohnung beinhaltet alles für einen Aufenthalt-sogar die Versorgung für die ersten Tage ist sichergestellt (Tee, Kaffee, Filter, Wasser, Marmelade, Spüli.....alles da).

Die Wohnung ist sehr zentral in der Altstadt und bei geöffnetem Fenster bekommmt man Italiens Straßenleben mit. Super, wenn man Italien erleben will. Für längeren Erholungsurlaub aber nicht geeignet. 5 Tage waren für uns perfekt.
