About the Owner

My partner and I own this apartment. We have been running the holiday rental now for over three years. We recently moved to Emilia Romagna, and I can recommend this area of Italy also!

We have an Italian restaurant in London, da Scalzo, on Elizabeth Street, Belgravia,which I highly recommend!

That's enough plugging I think.

I hope you enjoy the apartment as much we do.
