A charming luminous small flat in the heart of the "Navigli" district. An ideal place to stay in order to enjoy the most lively and authentic part of Milan.

The space

Located within the pedestrian area of the most picturesque of the Navigli canals, inside an old characteristic milanese building, a luminous studio flat with a lovely balcony which looks over the canal. The “By The Canal” apartment is furnished in a light and simple style and is the ideal place for who wants to stay in the heart of the lively city life and appreciate the real spirit of Milan as it was once and as it is today. The underground and other public transports are 2 minutes walking distance.
The apartment is served with Wi-Fi internet connection, television with wireless headphones, electric kettle, italian coffee machine in stainless steel (which assures a better quality, when not used daily, compared to the usual aluminum ones), hairdryer, liquid soap, and sheets and towels of course.
As you can tell from the pictures, in addition to the splendid and strategic location, the studio flat "By The Canal" has a superb balcony where you can enjoy an open air breakfast or a cup of tea with the sunset or even a candle light dinner looking over the canal and the evening lively life.
The Navigli area has plenty of bars and traditional or modern restaurants and the apartment is the perfect base for who's keen on visiting the city reducing to the least the need of a car or public transport (which is anyway very easy and close). Many of the most remarkable sites that Milan has are reachable by foot or renting a bicycle through the "BikeMi" bike-sharing service which has a parking close by.
However, if you are travelling by car, I do have the opportunity of a private garage near by, not included in the price of the flat.
Finally a wonderful antiques market happens every last sunday of each month just outside the building's door. Try not to miss it!

The location is excellent. In regard with the unit, does not really meet my expectation, especially the quality of the bed.

Neat area of Milan with some amazing restaurants nearby. Lorenzo is great at recommending places nearby & helping to navigate the city. If you are there on the weekend the restaurant below can be loud if you go to sleep before 11. Otherwise great place!

This place was perfect. Lorenzo communicated effectively and quickly. Great location and great place to stay. Apartment was beautiful and clean. Lorenzo greeted us and showed us where to find all the things we needed in the apartment and even provided us with a sheet and map of tips of where to eat, shop, etc. It was about a 20 min walk to center of town but on the above ground metro maybe 10 mins, under ground metro was about a 2 min walk from apartment. So many nice restaurants along the canal and little shops to look at. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend! Thank you Lorenzo.

This apartment is the perfect jumping off point for exploring Milan. The neighborhood is lively - lots of food, bars, shops. There's a metro stop a few blocks away. It's walking distance to the center. The wifi works. It's great. And Lorenzo is super helpful.
