    We really enjoyed our stay at Massimo and Ryoko. The apartment was very beautiful with good location outside citycenter.

    Massimo and Ryoko took us with them to see neighbourhood and Milano citycenter and offered us wonderful dinner. They also gave us very good tips for Milano and also for other cities in Italy for our further holiday.

    Wow! I only stayed at Massimo's home for 2 nights, but felt as though part of the family immediately. Wish I could have stayed longer. The home is extremely well equipped, clean, and organised, with everything considered for a guest's stay. Not only is it a beautiful home but the hospitality is beyond description. I enjoyed some incredible meals here, with food directly from the garden. Massimo is also a wealth of knowledge about Milan and Italy, and can help you find your way in a new place. We had some great discussions, some hearty laughs, and truly felt like I was spending time with an old friend. Will definitely be booking this stay again in the future! 11/10 recommend. Grazie mille Massimo!!!

    We had a wonderful stay in the home of Massimo. I have never had a more hospitable host. He and his wife made us feel like we were visiting friends. We shared delightful conversations together at breakfast. They even invited us to join them at their dance class in the evening, which was a lot of fun. And he even drove us to the metro station when we departed, on his way to work. Over the top hospitality. What a nice introduction to the people and culture of Milano.

    It was absolutely wonderful to stay with Massimo and Ryoko! they both were very helpful and kind during my stay at their house, it was " Home Sweet Home" to me.
    Ryoko is very passionate about cooking, she has been doing so well, the meal she prepared was delicious and enjoyable, I will definitely come to stay with them again.
    The location of their home is very easy to access the central city, train station just near the house, and bus stops just few minutes walking distance.
