Between Piazza Vittorio and the Great Mother, connected by the bridge Vittorio Emanuele I, there is the Po and the famous river walk called Murazzi (until a few years ago one of the sounds of night life, teeming with nightlife and currently Project Restart) from where the two boats Valentino and Valentina (on which you can book, lunch or dinner) that runs along the River Park Valentino almost to Moncton and back.

Appartement agréable, bien situé

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine à Turin. Nous avons apprécié le grand appartement, confortable et assez bien équipé. Immeuble et quartier calme, le voisin qui nous a accueilli était très gentil. Le centre historique, ses musées et monuments peuvent être rejoints à pieds, ligne de bus ou tram à proximité. Tout près : le grand marché et de petits commerces sympathiques.

Merci Mattia et Viviana pour votre accueil et vos messages.

Olivia Braibant et sa famille

Semplice accogliente e funzionale.

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso 5 gg a Torino visitando la città. La casa è posta in una posizione strategica, veramente vicina al centro ed al fantastico mercato di Porta Palazzo. Li accanto anche la mongolfiera per chi volesse vedere Trino da 150 Mt di altezza.

La casa è pulita accogliente e funzionale e calda.Mattia (Il proprietario) è stato veramente gentile e disponibile nel soddisfare tutte le nostre richieste.

Appartement "vintage"

  • 4 of 5

Appartement avec 2 chambres (et non pas une comme dans l'annonce) + possibilité de canapés dans la salle de séjour. La salle de séjour a une décoration "vintage" des années 50-60 (les photos de l'annonce le montrent bien). Pas de four à microondes.

L'entretien laisse quelque peu à désirer : nourriture laissée (depuis quand ?) dans le congélateur et le frigo, bouton de cuisinière cassé. Point positif : produits à vaisselle et produits de cuisine (sel, sucre, huile, aromates, etc.) laissés et à la disposition des hôtes.

Bonne situation avec le tramway N°4 tout proche qui permet d'aller au centre de Turin sans problème et un supermarché Lidl au bout de la rue. Gros avantage : la possibilité de se garer dans la cour de l'immeuble moyennant 5€ par jour. Le quartier est mélangé avec une forte communauté maghrébine.

Bon accueil à l'arrivée de Cristina parlant français couramment

très bien

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été cordialement accueillis par Mattia qui nous a attendus malgré notre retard; l'appartement est au 4è et dernier étage d'un immeuble des années 50 avec ascenseur; un grand séjour, une cuisine où l'on peut manger, 2 salles de bain, 2 chambres (2lits simples et 1 lit double + lits pliants); pas de bruit de voisinage, un peu de circulation le matin mais l'appt ne donne pas sur le boulevard; la déco est extra ambiance années 60/70 jusque dans les détails; un supermarché au bout de la rue, possibilité de se garer dans la rue, sans problème; proximité du marché quotidien et à 10mn à pied du centre de turin; le quartier est très bigarré, très cosmopolite et bon enfant.

Hemos viajado con mi familia (7 personas) desde El Salvador (Centroamérica) para celebrar el Bicentenario del Nacimiento de Don Bosco y nos hemos encontrado con este apartamento "clásico y familiar" que nos hizo sentir como en casa, y con servicios de supermercado y transporte "a la vuelta de la esquina" en una zona muy cercana al centro histórico de Turín. En medio del calor del verano, lo hemos pasado bien, especialmente por la fina atención de su propietario, nuestro amigo Mattia, quien estuvo siempre atento a nuestras necesidades. Regresaríamos con gusto...
