Vetted by our experts

Built at the turn of the twentieth century, this home is drenched in character and vintage charm. The dark walls and blue carpet add a bit of gloom, which actually works quite well in this nostalgic setting. However, the arrangement is slightly odd because the living room is at the back of the building, meaning there is very limited natural light, while the bedroom faces Madison Avenue, which can get pretty noisy during rush hour. But it's actually this outstanding location that makes the home special – New Yorkers call this the “Upper East Side Gold Coast.”

Staying in Upper East Side

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.

This home is a Plum Guide Award winner. Find out more
