But it's actually this outstanding location that makes the home special – New Yorkers call this the “Upper East Side Gold Coast.”

Your host Giampiero
This home is managed directly by a business. A member of their staff will be your point of contact before and during your stay.
Giampiero has lived in New York for thirty years now but still feels very Italian! That's where he'll likely be when his apartment is available to rent. If you like cooking, then try to follow some of the recipes in his cookery book Un Pasto al Sole which was co-published with his brother in Italy. His garden is his haven.
