The studio apartment is located on the Giudecca island which is a heavenly retreat with a special atmosphere all its own. Inhabited almost entirely by locals and situated apart from the hordes of tourists (with very few hotels except for the legendary Cipriani and the new Molina Stucky Hilton), the Giudecca is Venice's best-kept secret. The Giudecca offers the best views in Venice: from the northern waterfront, where you can dine on delicious food at the Do Mori, Harry's Dolce or Cip's, you can see over to the Dorsoduro, the island of San Giorgio, and of course San Marco and the Doge's Palace; from the sunny southern side, there are panoramic views across the canal.
Located just off the Fondameta on the ground floor, this one bedroom/one bath studio apartment was just totally renovated and comes fully furnished and includes air conditioning and wireless internet. It is sparkling clean and everything works. It offers a modern living/dining area, spacious kitchen with refrigerator, range with gas cooking and dishwasher. Washer and dryer are also included. The color TV with satellite dish provides you with a large selection of channels to choose from along with an iron and ironing board and even a blow dryer for your convenience.
Minimum of 3 Nights. Longer terms welcome.
We had a magnificent time in Venice and were so glad we chose to stay on the Giudecca – It was fantastic to leave the busy streets behind at the end of the day and return to a more tranquil “real” neighborhood.
The apartment was great and suited us well. All in all we enjoyed ourselves immensely and just wish we had more time……
All the best, and thanks again,
