“We had a wonderful stay in Michael and Lia's apartment in Saint Petersburg in the beginning of June 2012 (non simultaneous exchange). The apartment is absolutely lovely, very clear, completely renovated and very well furnished. It's not a huge apartment, but it's so well made and so well furnished that it feels big ! The area is very peaceful and quiet, close to Smolny Cathedral. Michael was really helpful for everything - visas, maps, etc. and we thank him one again. We all met this summer when Michael, Lia and their three adorable children came to visit in our place. This is the loveliest Russian/Austrian family ever ! They are wonderful people and we all plan to meet and spend time together again in a near future. So we really recommend this family and their apartment! Natalie and Nicolas, from Valreas (France)”
Michael's reviewsAs a host (3)
“We have spent a special holiday in St. Peterburg! The Apt. is tiny but very comfortable in the city center. The home is very clean and with all modern convenience. It's very close to a lot of bus/trolleybus and metro stops. Michael has prepared to us lots of documents with information on local shops, activities, transportation and appliances. He is also very helpful for visa and Russian language! We fully recommend his apartment to anyone who wants to visit St. Peterburg.”
“We made a very nice stay in this flat. It was not a home swap but a rental as Michael and his family had already made a home swap with Paris before. Tha flat itself is quiet and fully refurbished with taste and comfort. Michael was helpful and reliable, so we advise the home, the family and of course the city !”
Where is it?
We are directly at Smolny Cathedral with a wonderful view on it from the front of our house. It is a very calm area (so less traffic) where we always use to have some walk in Smolny garden in the evening - in smolny there is also majors hall. At the other side it is some steps to Taverichesky park which is a wonderful place directly in the city with water or a new skating place. Around Taverichesky there are University buildings, many embassies like the German and the Austrian Consulat and many other nice palais. Some steps from our house you find all the nesessary public transport going to the city (mostly we use busses as this is more relaxed - sometimes we use the subway/metro from Taverichesky). You will find 2 supermarkets and other shops just some steps away and around Taverichesky also nice restaurants and places to go to. In the city there are a lot of wonderful places which you can reach easily and of course there are the wonderful castles around (Gachina, Peterhof, Pushkin, ...) where you can partially go by boat or by bus or car. We are normally living in Vienna but have some parts of our family and friends also in St. Petersburg so there will be always somebody who can assist you in case you need something.
