Come to Turin this year: it's the only Italian city on the must-see list by the New York Times
Come to Turin and stay with us, of course :) You'll have it all: the city centre, the quietest room on the block, homebaked goods for breakfast, and a whisker-y welcome from our cats.
We’re happy to welcome you in our own home in the very heart of Turin, close to the Cathedral, Piazza Castello and Porta Palazzo, Europe’s largest, busiest and most colourful market. Vibrisse is nestled in the Quadrilatero Romano, one of Turin’s hot spots for nightlife, and offers you a quiet and cozy retreat where you can rest after a long day about town – maybe by cuddling our kitties, the actual landlords here ;)
Your room is equipped with a double and a single bed, located on a cozy mezzanine. We can also provide a camp bed for a child.
Your private bathroom is right out of the door, in a part of the house reserved to you.
Vibrisse looks out to a monastery's courtyard, so it is very peaceful and quiet any time of day.
Our living room and kitchen are here for you to enjoy, whenever you feel like to spend some time in our company.
Общение с гостями
We live here, this is our home, so we'll often be here for you, ready to answer to your questions :)
We look forward to welcome you in our kitchen for breakfast, and help you get a good start on your Turinese day. Homemade cakes and cookies, fruit and jam, bread, butter and cereals, and of course a nice espresso shot, a latte or a cup of tea... and if you fancy something else, we’ll make sure you get it.
We can not cater for celiac disease sufferers but, should you need it, we will provide a choice of packaged GF food.
Другие важные подробности
Lo stabile che ospita Vibrisse risale al '600, faceva probabilmente parte del complesso di San Domenico (la chiesa - l'unica romanico-gotica di Torino - che si trova sull'angolo) e non possiamo escludere che avesse a che fare con il tribunale dell'Inquisizione. Tutto questo per dirvi che l'ascensore non c'è, ma i piani solo soltanto tre (e i gradini, per la precisione, 72 :)
Nonostante via San Domenico sia una delle più frequentate di sera, la casa è eccezionalmente tranquilla grazie all'affaccio sul cortile del convento dei Domenicani.
Non abbiamo la TV, ma la nostra libreria è a vostra completa disposizione.
- No smoking anywhere in the house, except for electronic cigarettes.
- Due to the presence of our cats, we regret we cannot accept other pets.
- Check-in 4.00pm-9.00pm, check-out by 10.00am (but we will always work out a time that suits everybody :)
I love to travel and to experience new places as the locals do.
This is the spirit behind Vibrisse (The Cat's Whiskers), our one-room, three-cats bed&breakfast in the heart of our hometown Torino.
I am a host so I know what it means to host other people :)
I love to get to know new people and make them feel at home. I enjoy baking for them, showing them around my city and sharing all my favourite places.
In my spare time I am a freelance copywriter, and I make one inch scale miniatures for dollshouses.
My motto is: everything happens for a reason. Serendipitously :)
