About Francesco Bacchini
My name is Francesco and I live in Naples. I am at my first experiences as an host, and it will be a pleasure for me to make your stay unforgettable. I will also remain at your complete disposal throughout the period of your reservation, and will be also ready to provide advices or guided itineraries on how to better visit the city.
Francesco Bacchini purchased this Apartment in 2018
Why Francesco Bacchini chose Chiaia
I decided to rent this property because it is my interest to meet tourists from all over the world, offering, at the same time, a great quality service. Naples is wonderful city, but, sometimes, has a bad reputation. My intent is to show you its wonders and give you great suggestions, in order to visit it like locals.
What makes this Apartment unique
HOUSE MANUAL - ENGLISH BOILER, WATER and HEATING SYSTEM In the kitchen, hidden in a wall unit, there is the boiler that controls both the heating system (in every room there is at least one radiator) and the water temperature. On your arrival I will certainly provide more detailed explanations on its functioning, but here, however, I leave some basic instructions. Boiler Layout Opening the boiler door you’re going to find two white control knobs. Both of them have different functions and have to be adjusted carefully. * Upper Knob: Adjusts the boiler "program". * Lower Knob: Adjusts the water temperature. I recommend to set a water temperature that does not exceed 55 °C, therefore adjust the lower knob (number 6 in the image below) in a vertical position with the black dot pointing down. Upper Knob Programs * Set on Zero: Heating Turned Off, Hot Water Turned Off * Set on Summer (left, sun): Heating Turned Off, Hot Water Turned On * Set on Winter (right, snow): Heating Turned On (Lowest Temperature), Hot Water Turned On INTERNET, CONNECTIVITY and ELECTRONICS In the apartment you can connect to multiple Wi-Fi networks, all provided by Fastweb, under the name “FASTWEB-Bacchini”. The reason why there are various networks depends on their signal strenght, such as the “Extender” which is faster in the bedrooms. In addition to that, each room is equipped with Ethernet connection, allowing you to navigate at a higher speed. I will also provide a Pocket Wi-Fi (accessible with extra credentials) that will let you have internet on the go. In the living room there’s a FULL HD TV connected via cable on the national channels. The device has also HDMI and USB ports that will let you use it as an external monitor for multimedia or productivity. Finally, in the bathroom drawers there is a small Bluetooth speaker if you want to listen to some music during a relaxing shower.

The perfect place to stay in Napoli
For several years, my husband and I had wanted to visit Campania, especially Napoli. When we found that property 8704402 was available during our travel dates, we booked it right away.
It more than met our expectations; it was PERFECT.
Francesco is the best of hosts, helping us not only with our travel connections and local transportation needs, but also with recommendations for places to eat and the best ways to get to those destinations. He provides a very complete written guide not only to the apartment and its functioning parts (e.g. the washing machine), but also provides, in the same helpful binder, recommendations for places to go and places to eat. This was much appreciated, as it saved us time and linked us to some notable restaurants.
As to the location, it could not be better for out-of-town guests. The apartment is perfectly sited, just a two minute walk from either the Parco Margherita funicular or the Amadeo Metro station, from which any guest can get to the Archeologial Museum, the Duomo, the Capella Sanseverre and other historic sites in and around Naples.
Finally, as to the amenities within the apartment itself: it has two bedrooms and a bath with shower, a sitting room with convertible couch (if needed), and a very well-equipped kitchen. I especially appreciated the washer/dryer since we had been travelling for two weeks and needed to do some laundry upon arrival in Naples. Buying kitchen staples: for grocery shopping, the Carrefours market in the Chiaia district is just a few blocks away. It features an entire case of proscuitto products, each one differentiated by the time it has been cured and aged. What more could anyone want?
We will always remember our time in Naples, made so pleasant by our lodgings on the Via del Parco Regina Margherita and our memorable host, Fernando.

Thank you very much! I hope to see you again in Naples :).
This Napoli apartment is spectacular and charming!
Francesco’s apartment is the best VRBO I have stayed in. He is an absolutely wonderful host who is passionate about making his guests feel both welcome and at ease. The apartment is spacious and beautifully decorated. You will have everything you need and more if you choose to stay here. The location is conveniently located near transportation, restaurants, shops, and sights. It was difficult to leave the apartment, but there are many things to see in Naples. Plan your trip today, and stay in Francesco’s amazing apartment!
Thank you very much Carolyn. I hope to see you once again in the future. Greetings from Naples.
Great apartment and wonderful host!
A group of friends and I stayed at Francesco's apartment for a week, and used it as a base for excursions in and around Naples, Pompeii, and Amalfi Coast. It was our first time visit. The apartment is charming, newly renovated, super clean and well furnished, and stocked with essentials like a mini coffee machine and small fridge. And it also has a washer and dryer - something we didn't expect to use but became very handy. The location is in a wonderful area that is convenient to train station and all the main must-see sites of Naples, as well as the main shopping street of the city; we easily walked from there to many destinations. There is even a small square - Piazza Amedeo - three minutes walk away, that has the best cafe and sfoglietella for morning coffee and pastry. Francesco was a great host and was very welcoming, including giving advise before and after our arrival, and during our stay. He explained everything in detail, as well as leaving a guide booklet in the apt, with neighborhood recommendations, wi-fi codes, etc. He even booked our transport to the airport when we needed a very early morning taxi. I'd happily stay at this apartment again in the future and high recommend it. Thank you Francesco!
Thank you very much Augusto! I hope to see you once again in the future.
An outstanding apartment with a wonderful host.
House Margherita is located in the bustling Chiaia area and within an historic palazzo having 15 foot ceilings and eight foot windows giving you a sense gracious space and of living in another era. The apartment itself is lovely and modernly appointed with a washer/dryer and a well equipped kitchen. This spacious apartment has tasteful and unique furnishings that add to the experience. You can walk to most of the city from here and public transportation is easily accessible. Francesco was extremely helpful and put together a complete book of places to see and how best to get there, as well as restaurants to try, he was easy to reach with any questions or requests. We used many of his suggestions and were always delighted. This was the last stop of a month long vacation and a wonderful way to end our trip. I highly recommend House Margherita. Thank you Francesco.
Thank you very much Bonnie and Bill. I really hope to see you once again in the near future. Thanks again!
The apartment is in a great position & is beautifully appointed
We loved staying at Margherita Chiaia. It's very close to the train, funicular and a short walk to the port. Close enough to everything you need but far enough away from the very touristy area not to be overwhelmed by tourists. The house has absolutely everything you need and Francesco was great and so helpful. The decor is antique & very stylish. We'd totally recommend staying here.
Thanks again. Have a nice vacation in Italy :).
Beautiful Apartment in Chiaia Neighborhood- Convenient Location
My mother and I greatly enjoyed our stay in Francesco's beautiful apartment. We were very impressed with the apartment and Francesco's attention to detail as a host. It is spacious and well-equipped with all of the amenities of a fine hotel and more. Also, the apartment is very convenient to shopping, dining, and public transportation- only a few minutes from the funiculare and the metro. We highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Naples.
Thanks Angela :)!.
I hope to see you once again in Naples in the future.
THE BUILDING AND THE DISTRICT
The apartment is located in the elegant Palazzo Acquaviva-Coppola built in 1912 in southern Liberty style, which is an artistic movement deeply influenced by the "European Floral Trend", developed in Naples mainly in the neighborhoods of: Chiaia, Posillipo and Vomero. The building has the peculiarity of having a double access, both from Via San Pasquale 48 (next to the Teatro San Carluccio) and Via Del Parco Margherita 12, where you can admire the yellow building in its entirety.
Chiaia district, just beyond the public park (Villa Comunale) and the seafront (Lungomare), is always been considered as one of the richest and most elegant of the city. Therefore, here, you will find a lost atmosphere, really quiet, safe and fascinating at the same time.
GETTING AROUND IN NAPLES
The building is ideally positioned for reaching on foot the main sights of the city, such as:
* Seafront (Lungomare)
* Public Park (Villa Comunale)
* Castel Dell'Ovo
* Via Dei Mille
* Plebiscito Square
* The Royal Palace
* Galleria Umberto I
* Via Toledo
- Undeground, Line 2, Piazza Amedeo Station (200 mt from the apartment)
This line allows you to easily reach the Central Station Garibaldi [direction Gianturco], as well as the National Museum (Cavour Station) and the Old Town (Montesanto Station).
- Cable-Train, Parco Margherita Station (100 mt from the apartment)
Getting off at the last stop (Cimarosa) will let you reach Certosa di San Martino and Sant’Elmo Castle, located both in one of the highest point of the city, where you can have and an astonishing view of Naples.
- Bus Station, Piazza Vittoria (500 mt from the apartment)
In Piazza Vittoria, just 5 minutes walk from the apartment, there's the bus station. From there you can take a bus not only for reaching other areas of Naples, but also for the main attractions outside of town, such as: Pompei, Mount Vesuvius or Caserta’s Palace.
In Piazza Amedeo, just two minutes from the apartment, you can pick a cab to reach specific destinations late in the evening.
In Via Del Parco Margherita you're going to find "blue parking spots" where you can leave your car paying the hourly ticket (also via apps like EasyPark and Tap&Park). Otherwise, if you're not going to find an empty spot, you can go to a private parking (3€ per hour or 20€ for the whole day) just few steps from the apartment. There's no need to make a reservation there, but, in case you want, you can pay in advance via parclick.it. Maybe just check for availability.
* Car: 300 mt from the apartment, in Via Giovanni Bausan 16, there is a car rental agency, named Nobis Olimpia.
* Bicycle: in Via Riviera di Chiaia, a few steps from the house, there is a bike rental (Napolibike) always open and very efficient. Prices should be around 15€/day per bike.
* Rowing Boats: at the pier in Borgo Marinari, just 15 minutes walk from the apartment, it is possible to rent both rowing or motor boats to admire the seafront from the gulf. Another pier that offers this service is Mergellina harbour, just in front of Chalet Ciro. You can reach this place by taking the underground line 2 from Amedeo Station and getting off at Mergellina Station.
