About the property

Apartment with kitchen up to 4 beds, close to the center

New apartment, new furniture, kitchen, bathroom with shower, double bedroom situated on beautiful loft, living room with sofa bed for any other two beds. Located in the small palace, with its own entrance in a quiet but very close to the old town (400m.). A 100m is the bus stop for all other destinations further afield

The apartment "The Violin" is located in Via Po, a few meters from the historic center of Cremona. The center is dominated by one of the most beautiful squares in 'Italy Piazza Duomo, where you can see the famous Torrazzo, the highest bell tower in stones from all over Europe, on which you can climb to enjoy a breathtaking view of the city. Among the streets of downtown you can see old shops of luthiers, where craftsmen build their violins. In the city hall is located a collection of the creations of the greatest violin makers such as Antonio Stradivari and Andrea Amati. The historic center is a little gem full of views that seem to bring the visitor back in time, you can choose to visit the museums or even just sit at an outdoor table to enjoy a cappuccino. Cremona is a good base for visiting other cities in the immediate vicinity: Milan, Mantua, Brescia, Piacenza and Lake Garda.

Perfect pied-a-terre

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this cosy loft apartment and wanted to stay longer in the end but it was booked.

Close to supermarkets and a short walk to the centre of town, it had the perfect position and everything we needed.

The owner, Marco, could not have been more accommodating and helpful.

We will definitely be back next time!!

Thank you Marco!!

EXCELLENT APARTMENT!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This Cremona apartment is wonderful! Exceptionally clean and well organized with plenty of towels and sheets and cooking implements. Walking distance to a couple wonderful shops (meat, cheese, wine) and a great vegetable/fruit stand. Walking distance to the center of Cremona and very close to the convenient bus stop.

Marco is an excellent landlord - he picked us up at the train station and drove us there at the end of our stay and even provided bicycles for us! We asked if Marco had an iron and within hours he had gone out and bought one for the apartment!

I would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Great experience. Marco met us on time and was very helpful. The apartment is quiet, clean and comfortable. Parking right outside block. It was easy to walk to the centre of Cremona - a lovely town.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Marco, the owner, thought of everything when he converted, furnished, and provisioned this wonderful little loft apartment. My husband and I, along with our 10-month-old, stayed here for two nights. We'd come to relax and see Cremona and its violins, and this apartment played a big part in making the trip so pleasant. Marco picked us up (and dropped us off) at the train station. When we arrived at the apartment, we found that he'd bought us some food and ground coffee to last us the first few days and left us a few bus tickets and visitors guides and maps (we added to the collection of both when we left). For at-home amusement, there were several dozen books, and a TV and DVD player, along with several decent DVDs. We cooked breakfast and dinner at home using the stove and oven, and found everything that we needed -- knives, cutting boards, mugs, macchinetta, cutlery, pots/pans, napkins, and plates and bowls. There were also plenty of linens and towels. We found it so much better supplied than many of the other "fully equipped" apartments we've rented in Italy. It was cold during our visit -- the heating works well. And, needless to say, the place is immaculate. About 4 blocks from the apartment, there was a fruit/veggie store, a salumeria, and another food shop, from which we were able to get the basics. The bus stop is just around the corner from these shops. We highly recommend the place for a short stay, and imagine that a long stay wouldn't be so difficult, either.

Very clean and convenient studio apartment

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely recommend this apartment for visitors to the lovely city of Cremona. It is about a 4 block walk to the bus stop in a quiet residential area. Very clean and well maintained. The owners were very helpful and very kind. The loft bed was comfortable. The couch is ok for a younger person. Kitchen was fully equipped with essentials.

BON SEJOUR EN ITALIE

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons apprécié notre séjour et surtout l'appartement, très bien placé; près de l'autoroute pour pouvoir aller visiter les villes et les villages.. Supérette, boucherie à proximité pour les courses.

L'appartement ans un quartier calme est très confortable pour 2 personnes, surtout très propre et bien équipé avec le linge de maison, le lit fait à l'arrivée. .

L'accueil est très chaleureux. Marco durant le séjour s'intéresse à notre confort et nos besoins.

Nous le recommandons, le plus pour nous est que Marco parle français.
