We had the great privilege of staying at the Piana 2 Apartment as a lovely family long weekend. In comparison to some of the other rentals we were considering which seemed old and dated, this lovely apartment was very modern, fresh and clean.
When we arrived one light bulb had blown out and the service team was there within the the hour to fix it, and were honestly all too happy to help with anything!
We traveled with our 1.5 and 4.5 year old's and it really was a great holiday but I will note this - the apartment has a very large stairway. Completely fine for our super competent fully walking younger daughter, but may be an issue if you have small ones learning to walk, crawl or are super mobile. That said they did have a babygate, so perhaps not an issue? May also be an issue if mobility is an issue.
Only other red flag for consideration is that this gorgeous apartment has been designed with an upstairs lounge room that has a low wall that sits a little higher than the top of the couches, with a sheer drop downstairs. Super cool as you can look down and see the apartment and artwork below, but a bit of a concern for the little ones. Again not a problem for our kids as with a little initial policing of "no jumping or crawling on the couches" but if you have an adventurous toddler or small child that likes to climb and does not listen give it a miss - its a big drop and not for the faint hearted if you have a little adventurer!
All in all a lovely stay and we will be sure to head back.
