(1600 square feet) is the apartment I lived in with my family until October 2011. It is located on the fourth floor of the same building where Leone 2 and Leone 3 are also located and it has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. It can accommodate up to 6 people.
Leone 1 is a stylish and elegant apartment located on the fourth floor in the same building as Leone 2 and Leone 3 which are on the second floor.
It is a light and spacious apartment with large windows overlooking Via Bocca di Leone off Via Borgognona, just in front of the Hotel d’Inghilterra.
One enters the apartment through double doors. Firstly one comes across a lobby where I have a small desk to organize check-in`s and housekeeping.
There is a room off this lobby where the housekeeper, who looks after the three apartments, lives. Straight ahead is the entrance to the apartment.
The apartment is furnished with antique furniture and paintings from my family home in Puglia and from my husband’s home on Sardinia. The floors are covered by terracotta tiles.
