Pied à Terre with Terrazza

Bed & Breakfast

Tiny, suite-in-the-sky, in shabby-chic style, with all you need cleverly tucked into one room. Plus heavenly terrace with city-wide views


1 room


Rooms sleep 2


Live like a Milanese, aperitivo in hand, gazing over the city from your rooftop terrace. Tucked under the eaves of this 19th-century palazzo (there’s a lift most of the way) this cosy, shabby-chic room is bedroom, living space and breakfast area rolled into one. White walls, polished wood floors and a large French window make the most of the light and space; a bright blue-and-white patchwork quilt, colourful rug and gilt baroque mirror add warmth. There’s a charming antique desk and chair, plus a hanging rail for clothes. A zinging black and white bathroom is a triumph of ergonomics. True, it’s a pretty squeeze but most of your time will be spent on the tiled terrace with its flower boxes, orange and lemon trees and eye-opening views. Here you’ll take breakfast – including fresh breads, pastries and homemade jams – left daily by Gillian, while planning your day. It’s a 20-minute walk to the big sights: Duomo, Leonardo’s Last Supper, Brera gallery and La Scala. Scottish Gillian will advise plus share her tips for where to eat. Return to refresh in your roof garden; a rare city treasure.

Gillian is the kindest most caring host we have ever come across. She has really made the flat a real home from home. It is charming, comfortable and has wonderful homely touches. It was spotlessly clean and Gillian changed the towels and made the bed everyday whilst we were out. The fridge was well stocked, including a bottle of fizz as a treat for our 25th Wedding Anniversary – what a super surprise. It is in a very nice, quiet area of Milan and, on recommendation, we found some lovely restaurants close by. It was a perfect experience and we would highly recommend ‘Pied a Terre’ to anyone.


Pied à Terre was our last Sawday’s stop in Italy, just before flying back to the UK. We loved everything about it: the room was perfectly clean and decorated with taste. Breakfast in the terrace was an absolute treat with views over the roof-tops, delicious mini-croissants, fresh bread & home-made jam. Gillian is a very welcoming host and made us feel at home, she has plenty of recommendations for things to do, attractions to see and places to eat. Can definitely recommend - We’ll be back!

Matteo, Bristol

A lovely exclusive room in the rooftops of Milan with everything you may want, a friendly owner with local knowledge of how to get to places of interest and areas to venture out at night. Easy to get to from the train station if travelling by public transport. Great supplies in the fridge and freshly bought bread and crossiants for breakfast. We hope to return, thank you for our short but sweet visit.
