Our first time not staying in a hotel in a city.
It was beyond our expectations! Returning after a busy day visiting the biënnale in this
haven of quiet felt like going home to our
little palazzo. Every detail is exquisite.
We also loved knowing the neighborhood,the friendly people of the little supermarkt Prix and Francesca.
We will certainly come back!
Beautiful, spacious apartment in a great location. Every aspect of our experience here surpassed my expectations.
The apartment is nicely renovated, has lots of space, and was very clean. We also really enjoyed the private terrace overlooking a canal, which was a lovely place for breakfast or a glass of wine in the evening.
Location is on a quiet street, but only a minute or two walk to groceries and restaurants, and a few minutes more to the Giardini and water bus stops.
Great communication from the owner, who was very friendly and helpful.
I would recommend this apartment without reservation and look forward to returning here on our next visit.
This beautiful apartment was our Venice "home" for five nights. It has generous sized rooms which are all beautifully furnished. Little things like the soap rack in the bathroom and light switches by the bed were really thoughtful and appreciated. We cooked in the apartment and if you can't find the saucepans, they are in the cupboard in the dining room! The A/C was "English cool" not "American cold" which suited this Scottish family very well. We ate breakfast on the terrace every morning and I also used the terrace to dry our towels. There is a good "Coop" and restaurants about 10 mins walk away. (Nice ice-cream just opposite too.) It is about a 30 minute walk to St Marks Square. In the evenings it was great to head away from the crowds to our more quiet corner of Venice. There are two vaporetto stops which are less than 10 minutes away and we used them every day. I contacted Francesca on a number of occasions ("Where is the best place to take a Gondola ride") and she always replied quickly with lots of information. I would definitely stay again.
If you're looking for somewhere really special to stay, then this is the place.
Great location in a quiet genuine neighbourhood, though only 15/20 minutes from St Marks Square, so the best of both worlds. Also there is a cafe and supermarket only 1 minute away. All main tourist attractions are within walking distance.
The apartment has only recently been renovated and has been finished to a very high standard.
The owner is really helpful, and offered great advice prior and during our stay about the local area, transport and attractions.
I would not hesitate to recommend this property and return for a repeat visit.
