Beautiful apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed in this apartment for ten days in early September 2017. The apartment was tastefully and comfortably furnished (including air conditioning) and was immaculately clean when we had arrived. Francesca was a very welcoming and an attentive owner who made sure we were comfortable and our stay there was as pleasant as possible. The apartment is very centrally located and ideal for shopping, local dining and sightseeing. It can get a little noisy at night from the local bars but no more than can be expected in any other central Italian city location. In conclusion, our overall experience was an exceptionally positive one and we highly recommend.

Beautiful property in great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Casa Mimma for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Francesca was responsive via emails prior to our stay and both her and her son who greeted us at the apartment on arrival were extremely helpful and friendly. Both speak excellent English. We appreciated her very thoughtful gesture of including a small amount of basic items such as milk, spreads, fruit and yoghurt. We needed to visit a smaller outlying village during our stay and Francesca helped us with arranging taxis.

The apartment itself is well appointed and beautifully furnished. We only used the kitchen for breakfast and the occasional lunch, however it appeared to have what is required to make a meal. The beds and sofas were comfortable. The whole apartment was spotlessly clean. It is extrememly conveniently located just around the corner from the Duomo and the main piazza della Vittoria. All the sights were within easy walking distance. The apartment is a flat 800-900m from the train station and is an easy walk (straight pretty much all the way until the last turn at the end). I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Thank you Francesca for helping us make our visit here so enjoyable!

Superb rental apartment in Central Pavia

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just redone and in the highest quality, with a large master bedroom, spacious closets, a second room for odds and ends, a washing machine, central location, quiet despite noise from university students. A excellent bathroom adds to the quality. The A/C was excellent; the hostess helpful with suggestions and comments about Pavia. The town itself is full of architectural churches from medieval and renaissance era, and was worth more than the three days we gave it. The Wikipedia Italiana has excellent entries on the buildings. Some very good restaurants with risotto a special local dish. A famous old city with marks of many centuries everywhere.

Beautiful apartment and a charming host

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a week in this recently renovated apartment in the charming university town of Pavia. Our host Francesca could not have been more helpful and friendly. She has provided everything one needs for making the place feel like home. It is both elegant and very comfortable. The location in the centre of the old part of the town was wonderful with the main square, the markets, and wonderful places to eat out all so close. Even the noise of happy students in the street at night did not spoil our stay. We would certainly stay again one day.

Komfortables Appartement in zentraler Lage

  • 5 of 5

Das Appartement entspricht ganz der Beschreibung, sehr zentral gelegen, schön eingerichtet und mit weit mehr als nur dem Notwendigen versehen (sogar mit Ohrstöpseln gegen den nächtlichen Lärm, der mit der zentralen Lage verbunden ist).

Bei der Ankunft waren schon die Zutaten für das nächste Frühstück im Kühlschrank, wir fühlten uns wirklich willkommen. Vielen Dank für die schönen Tage.

In pieno centro, a due passi dalla stazione, comodo per raggiungere ogni posto della città, elegantemente arredato, confortevole e dotato di ogni confort. Meglio di un albergo a 5 stelle! E che dire della disponibilissima e gentilissima proprietaria!? Un sogno.
