The Experience

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, bamboo floors and a large French window make the most of the light and space; a bright blue-and-white patchwork quilt and large mirror over the bed add warmth. 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 plan your day while taking breakfast- including fresh breads, pastries and homemade jams – left daily by Gillian. 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.

Pied à Terre with Terrazza is beautiful, clean and very elegant. As soon as you open the door it feels like home, and smells amazing. We enjoyed our very short stay and we found it hard to leave. We will certainly go back again. Gillian is a wonderful, kind and gracious host. She makes you feel right at home. I will never forget your kindness and generosity. Thank you for everything. Regards. Maria and Malcolm. Melbourne, Australia.

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.


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.

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!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Gillian Reekie

  • Milan is renowned for "fashion" and truly so it is, you can shop in the exclusive boutiques of Via Montenapoleone , Via Della Spiga Corso Garibaldi and so on. A bus ride of about 90mins will take you to one of the biggest shopping villages close to Milan.
  • Piazza Duomo the cathedral is a magnificent building well worth a visit, walk through galleria Vittorio Emanuelle and you will have the "Scala of Milan" in front of you,a short walk from there and you will see the Sforzesca Castle a historical building.
  • Naviglio is a special place in Milan the old canals that once upon a time were used to bring all the products from the nearby countryside into the city. Now a days a trip up and down the canals is like going back in time, the small vincole are so romantic
  • Italy,Milan means food,trattoria and be sure you will be spoils for choice. Milan offers risotto with saffron,veal chops the size of an elephant ear cooked with bread crumbs served with salad and tomatoes really very tasty and of course a bottle of wine !!
  • Museums are a must depending on your particular interest, the Last Supper Leonardo da Vinci is of course at the top of the list but you MUST book in advance maybe together with a walk around tour of Milan.
  • Concerts are becoming very popular in Milan not to mention the Scala but tickets must be bought in advance. For lovers of jazz the Blue Note is the place to go advisable to book but there are lots of bars that organise jazz sessions, especially Naviglio.
