Bigger isn't always better, and at this stylish home in a particularly nice part of the Scalo di Porta Romana neighbourhood, you'll be enchanted by its clever use of space and chic minimalism. Set on the ground floor, and with a typically high ceiling creating a mezzanine floor for the bedroom, it's dazzlingly white, and filled with fascinating art and quirky furnishings. The part-time home of a fine arts teacher, it's designed with simplicity and style in mind. We love the sofa made from a base of pallets, along with the comfy dining spot and the practical kitchen. And although the climb up to the bedroom is not for the faint of heart, it's a serene space, perfect for reading. Surrounded by shops, cafes and good restaurants, there's more than enough to enjoy on your doorstep. Fondazione Prada, home to a world-famous contemporary art collection is a ten-minute walk from your door. The building itself is a work of art, converted from a century-old distillery into a modern-day marvel. Even the café Bar Luce is something to behold, designed by renowned film director Wes Anderson. But all that said, if it's the big attractions of the city you're after, you're just a six-minute walk from Brenta metro station, and a seven minute walk from Lodi for an easy ride into the centre of town.

Home truths

    The bed is on an open mezzanine floor above the main living space – due to the design of this home and its steep ladder staircase, we wouldn't really recommend it for children.

    Your home has a private entrance, accessed via an internal courtyard.

    The bed and the sofa are built from pallets so they're pretty low to the ground.

    With minimal furnishings, there's not much in the way of storage here, and there's no TV or washing machine.

    There's no check-in after 10pm.

    Given the home's central spot, expect to hear some street noise throughout your stay. Light sleepers might want to pack earplugs.

    The bedroom curtains here don't fully block out the sunlight. If you're hoping to enjoy a lie-in, you might want to pack an eye mask.
