Perks for the Parents

This 3 bedroom apartment in a typical Milanese Casa di Ringhiera has been recently renovated by a French architect and is well set up for a family. Set on a quiet, pedestrian street a short walk from the city's sights with Parco Sempione 5 minutes away. The area attracts young families with kids, and many restaurants in the area serve children's menus and even provide baby sitting. Two supermarkets and a pharmacy are just downstairs. The area is close enough to the highway to allow easy day trips to Lake Como, Lake Maggiore and Switzerland.

Why Kids Love it

The home has plenty of toys for boys and girls under 10 with books in English, Italian, French and Mandarin. Sports equipment can be used in the courtyard or in Milan’s biggest park, Parco Sempione, which is just 5 minutes away. The dedicated kid’s room is a large, playful space and sleeps 3 children; a single sofa bed in the lounge can accommodate another. A crib and high chair can be provided if needed and DVD player, TV and WiFi are included. A recommended babysitter/nanny is available on request.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 nights. The flat and surrounding area is safe and secure. The building includes an elevator and a big courtyard downstairs where kids can play and parents can relax. No pets, no smoking. Bicycles can be rented downstairs at the Bikemi station and kid’s bicycles are available for renting at the Bikemi station in front of the entrance to Parco Sempione. A parking space for small cars is available with additional parking across the street. Milan’s children hospital (Ospedale Buzzi) is 500m away. Air conditioning, washer/dryer and WiFi included.

About the Location

This residence is in the Chinatown area of Milan, in a historic district within easy reach of Milan’s main attractions (Duomo, Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, La Scala). The area is well served by transportation and you can almost walk everywhere (Brera, Corso Como, Garibaldi). The area is home to the Italian Chinese community with pedestrian streets and vibrant multiculturalism. Packed with charming and ethnic restaurants, local trattoria and wineries, during spring and summer the street is often home to street musicians. Malpensa Airport is a 45-minute drive away.

Accommodation Details

This 3-bedroom, 3-bath apartment includes an open living and dining room, seating 8, with a long balcony that runs along the eastern side of the apartment, a fully equipped kitchen, and a TV room. The master bedroom has a kingsize bed and the children's bedroom is divided into 2 spaces with a bunk bed and a twin bed. The 3 bathrooms include a bathtub.

Style Notes

Colorful and modern. This welcoming family space has a mix of Asian and Nordic influence and creates a cozy family atmosphere. High ceilings, wooden floors and white walls feel open and bright while ornate tiles, a chalkboard wall and modern red bathroom add interest. We love the multicolored kitchen chairs, wooden countertops and family library wall lining the living room.

We are an Italian family with two kids (aged 10 and 8). Both, my husband and me are born and bred in Milan but have lived many years abroad. Being seasoned travellers ourselves, we know how relaxing it is to stay in characterful homes when traveling abroad with kids, rather than bland chain hotels. Our apartment is located in Milan’s Chinese neighborhood, a vibrant and dynamic area, just a few steps away from some of the most significant venues of Milan such as the picturesque Brera and Garibaldi areas, the fashionista Corso Como, the historical city centre (Piazza del Duomo, Corso Vittorio Emanuele) and the futuristic buildings of Porta Nuova district as well as the booming Isola district. Ours is the perfect location for a family in need of some comfort an relax but still wanting to enjoy the Milanese charme. The apartment is located in a traditional milanese "casa di righter" , a building recently renovated by a french architect with a nice inside courtyard where the kids can safely stroll around and you can relax on the bend. The apartment is placed in the pedestrian path of Via Sarpi. Once downstairs you can find supermarkets, pharmacy , local trattoria or wineries. Within walking distance from Parco Sempione, where a huge kids area are available, the apartment is also close to the main highways entrance to Lake of Como, Lake Maggiore and Switzerland where you can easily have one day trip either by car or train as Stazione Central and Stazione Garibaldi are very close by.

Milan, Italy

Fashion, design, finance and fun

Milan is Italy’s center of fashion, design and finance, but that doesn’t mean it has limited kid-appeal. Along with gardens with carnival rides and local playgrounds to explore, there are dinosaur skeletons at the city’s natural history museum and towering replicas, plus a zoo, at the Prehistoric Park on the edge of the city. Medieval castle Castello Sforzesco is a great stop for fairytale fans, and kids will find the city’s gelateria irresistible. Seeking out a favorite flavor and the best ice creamery in town is as good a mission as any in the fashion capital.
