Our home

* Better, daylight pictures coming soon :D *

Hello!
Our flat is 90 sqm on the 2nd floor (with elevator) of a small new building with lovely quiet neighbours.
It has big windows and electricly operated shades: just push the button!
Rooms:
one big entrance;
kitchen: table, dishwasher, two ovens (big and small), toaster, water boiler, fridge and freezer;
main bedroom: a king size bed, king size foldable sofa bed, a baby bed with protections, big wardrobes, tv and dvd player (and lots of dvds with both movies and cartoons);
guest room: a king size bed and big tv;
bathroom with shower and hair dryer;
laundry corner with washer and dryer (if the weather's nice I hang laundry on the balcony: it saves energy);
big balcony with rooftop (you can eat and play outside even if it drizzles :D !)
Please let me know if you need a highchair: my baby doesn't use it anymore but I'll look for one if you need it; same thing for a baby-changing station.

My cleaning lady brings my apartment back to life every week :D

The whole building is wheelchair and stroller friendly: slopes, elevator, wide doors and corridors.
The flat is toddler-safe and very child-friendly: safe baby bed with protections, locks on kitchen cabinets, protections on sharp edges and electric sockets, easily removable floor padding and toys for both inside and outside use (the balcony is quite big so the playground extends to the outside too).
I have a boy but my toddler niece visits the house regularly so I have toys for every gender :)

We also like books, so you'll find many of them for children and adults in mostly English and Italian, but also French and Danish :)
And games! Oh we are so fond of games: you'll find a lot of them both in English and Italian and for every age.

The apartment is right in front of a big green park, some tennis courts (bring your own rackets), walking distance from a nice children's playpark and a catholic church if you care.
My house is also very close to Malpensa airport (10 min, by car, 30-40€ for taxi cab ride), to many malls and supermarkets (though I order my groceries online), to a lovely organic food shop, an excellent chinese/japanese restaurant, an excellent pizza and seafood restaurant, to the highway and 5-10 minutes (by car) away from the town's train stations that take you to Milan, Switzerland, the lakes (Como, Maggiore...), Paris, Venezia, Genova, Bologna, Roma and anywhere else...
Nice destinations for car trips are also the Ticino river (15 min. by car) and Mottarone mountain (1h by car) on which you ski in winter and hike/bike in the summer (bike rent on the spot).

The area is a mix of residential and industrial, so shops, restaurants and cafés are not far but you'll need a car: unfortunately the area does not have public transportation :(
My Opel Agila with reserved parking spot right outside the house will be there for you and is equipped with a very safe baby car-seat for children weighting between 9 and 18 kg (please use it: italian laws and the police are very strict on children car safety).

Any questions? Just ask :D
I am fluent in English, French and Italian

Property features

Who we are

  1. I am a non-smoker, mom to a boy born in 2016. I work in Milan as an executive assistant and translator.
    We mostly travel with my sister, her boyfriend and their girl born in 2017 :D
    I am looking for my first house swap but I am an experienced airbnb guest and host, so I know how to treat someone else's home with care and respect.
    Needless to say I am a passionate traveller whenever work allows :D
