About Me
My partner and I took a three month Andalusian break from our busy city lives in Paris and London... we fell in love with this region, a perfect cross-roads for travelers: Andalusia with its strong culture, breathtaking and ever changing landscapes ... but also on the doorstep to Africa ! We extended our stay ... two children and thousands of new places later, twenty beautiful years have passed ! We are now living in the Albayzin quarter of Granada always enjoying traveling and sharing our special places with fellow travellers.

It’s a great flat in a wonderful neighbourhood – Stockbridge – with many restaurants, supermarkets (including Waitrose!) and shops. It is very close to the wonderful Inverleith Park and the Botanical Garden. Several buses connect the area to the city center, which is anyhow at a walking distance. The flat is great, equipped with hypermodern (and very cool!) appliances. Full of light and with a cozy and perfectly functioning fireplace. More important, Christine & Stick are simply wonderful: very easy-going, flexible, always helpful and kind: the exact opposite of some owners…Edinburgh is fairly expensive, but the rent is absolutely honest. In a nutshell: if you are looking for a nice nest in Edinburgh this is certainly the place to be. Excellent Mario Del Pero 3/31/2019 6:27:00 AM
La Casa del Piano is a treasure!! The owners have helped us with so many details as we adjusted to moving to a new city and a new country!! We could not have made the move without their help! They were excellent communicators, patient and welcoming, and the perfect hosts! Not only is Jimena a beautiful village with beautiful people...this home with its picturesque terraces and patios, antique details and central location - make it a perfect choice for any length of stay! We have made memories that will last a lastime thanks to the owners of this home! Excellent TIFFANY Braun 3/27/2019 4:02:00 AM
We lived in this lovely flat for 2.5 years, and it has been an all-around great experience. Comely Bank, where the flat is located in, is certainly one of the best areas to stay in Edinburgh, with lovely Stockbridge and its great selection of restaurants, pubs and coffees right around the corner, but enough away to keep any business at bay. So the neighbourhood is very relaxed. Inverleith Park is just a hundred yards away. For those into running or walking this offers a direct connection to Leith walk. The city center is within walking distance. The flat is fully furbished and in a great state. The interior is well thought through. Particularly handy is the great amount of storage space, which really distinguishes this flat from others we have seen in a comparable size. The living room has a couch that, in case of need, also sleeps to people, which is useful when getting visitors. The landlords are very helpful and easy to cooperate with. There is a community garden which is good to store bikes, dry laundry or just hang out a bit. Overall, we would highly recommend to stay in the flat. From all flats we have seen in Edinburgh, and this is a fair number, we would not have chosen a single one above this one. Excellent Elisabeth Reiner 2/6/2018 1:33:00 AM
La casa del piano is as lovely as the pictures depict. We enjoyed the patio and its pool for outside dining under the lemon tree, the romantic balcony outside the master bedroom and the top balcony with views of the castle and surrounding countryside. The house is on the nicest street in the village, a pedestrian street. The life in the village was a wonderful experience thanks to Christine who at our every request tried to fulfill our needs. Having lived in the village for years she shared her contacts with us, enriching our stay. She was very responsive and supportive. Excellent Liana Welty 5/4/2012 1:52:00 PM
