I offer generous Mediterranean warmth in a home full of character, atmosphere and history. This is not your usual 'hotel' type accommodation and I try to make your stay with us personal, attentive and your privacy is respected. I live here and can offer you sensible suggestions to help you make the most of your stay.
NB! I have a strict 'no smoking' policy out of respect to all our guests.
The apartment is in a 16th century 'renaissance' period palazzo. The ancient foyer betrays her age but once you reach the apartment everything changes. There is no elevator in the building - only the original ancient marble and ardesia staircase to our apartment on the 3rd floor. Please note that there are steps to climb so the apartment may not be suitable for everyone.
The apartment is enormous (215m2 or 2315 ft2) and has undergone an extensive restoration by renowned Genoese architect, Saverio Fera. I felt it important to uncover and preserve her fascinating 460 year old history and character for future generations.
The grand salon's ceiling is decorated with 19th century ceiling motifs and is furnished with antique and modern furniture, eclectic art works, a Bechstein grand piano, Murano chandelier.
A further sitting room overlooks 'Piazza Lepre' which is a very popular and lively bar with the locals & tourists.
The main en-suite bedroom (size = 27m2) has exposed ancient wooden beams and walls. The bed is KING size with a great mattress (perfect for those 'amore moments)! It has a compact bathroom with WC, basin and rain shower head . There is a priceless in-built carved ardesia panel framing a wall bureau dating from the 16th century.
There is a second spacious bathroom with two large rain showers, WC & bidet.
The second bedroom overlooks Vico Lepre and has an antique art-deco KING size bed.
The oversized 'eat in 'kitchen where I serve breakfast has a Murano chandelier and antique Genoese marble basin, exposed original wooden beams and the mast from an ancient ship on the ceiling.
All the rooms have massive 4m long raw silk drapes imported from Mumbai.
I offer you free WI-FI so you can keep in contact with your friends & family.
Your stay includes a complimentary 'European continental' style breakfast - Italian coffee, herbal & Indian teas, cheese, toasted breads, seasonal fruit, jams, marmalade, eggs & fruit juice.
Fresh bed linen & towels as well as complimentary body wash, shampoo & hair conditioner.
Local guide books, maps and Italian phrase books are available for your convenience as well as a comprehensive book, CD and DVD library for you to enjoy.
