The Gondola House is situated on Giudecca at Zitelle and is 4 minutes by vaporetto to St Mark's Square. The property is designed to the highest specifications by an award winning architect and was built on the Giudecca waterfront on the outline of the Squero (Venetian for “Gondola boatyard”) that once stood on the site. When the architect told us that we'd be able to sit up in bed in the morning and watch gondolas going by we dismissed it as sales talk. But it's true - and wonderfully so! With ground to roof windows facing onto the Venice lagoon and with superb views towards the Lido from both the living room and the upstairs bedroom, you realise as you look out that there's only one place in the world you could be … <BR><BR>Ground floor: a living area with sofa and two arm chairs; a small multi-media library –...

My wife and I loved Gondola House and we adored Venice. The house had everything we needed and was comfortable . It had a private entrance and was a short walk to the water bus which could take us to what we wanted to see in Venice. We would definitely visit and rent this home again.

The apartment was easy to get to with the owner's directions. We bought waterbus tickets for our five day stay which made it easy to get around when we decided where we wanted to go for the day. The apartment was clean,secure, and central to come and go to different locations. The owner also recommended restaurants, grocery stores, and helped...

About the neighbourhood
Venice comprises over 100 islands of which Giudecca is the largest. In recent years the island has been increasingly recognised as the perfect place in which to live and enjoy Venice. Unspoilt by tourism and yet less than five minutes from St Mark's Square by waterbus, Giudecca has some of Venice's best restaurants along with boutique galleries, excellent neighbourhood shops and, not least, a sense of openness and space rarely found in Venice. Three landmark Palladio churches are nearby and Giudecca plays host to exhibitions and concerts all year round while providing many venues for the Venice Biennale. In the summer a special boat stops at the local pontoon stop (Zitelle) to take the locals to the Lido beaches.
