Experience the real Venice in a newly restored top floor flat with stunning views across Canale Giudecca towards Piazza San Marco. Situated a few steps from the Palanca vaporetto station you can enjoy peace and quiet and explore authentic Venetian life, while being only minutes away from all the main tourist attractions: The vaporetto takes you to Accademia in two minutes, to Piazza San Marco in 10 and to Lido's great beaches in 20 minutes.
All rooms offer fabulous sea views. The apartment has a large combined kitchen and living room with exposed beams, a comfortable lounge, a dining area seating 6 people and a well equipped kitchen. There is a flat screen TV (Italian channels), DVD/Blue ray, CD player, docking station for ipod/iphone (not iphone 5) and free Wifi throughout the apartment. We also have a very good selection of books and films. The books are both fiction and non fiction, among them several books on Venetian history, architecture and art, guide books and maps.
The main bedroom has a double bed, wardrobes and a desk with a stunning view across beautiful terracotta roofs towards the dome of the Redentore church and Canale Giudecca. The smaller bedroom has a sofa bed that easily turns into a double or two single beds.
All the furniture is new, held in a modern Scandinavian style, except for some few antique pieces from Venice. On the walls you will find contemporary art by both British, Scandinavian and Italian artists with Venetian motives, mixed with historic prints.
In Ca´Eufemia you can escape from the crowds - a perfect place to relax!
At Giudecca, you can still experience the authentic Venice. Back in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance Giudecca was the garden of Venice. Some of the nobles had their palaces here, but the rest was gardens, orchards and monasteries. In the 19th century Giudecca was industrialized and a lot of craft shops and factories were set up. In the late 20th century the area was rather run down before a gentrification process started in the 1990s and the seemingly genuine and charming Giudecca we know today became a reality.
Exploring Giudecca is exciting, a mix of medieval and later palaces, industrial history, and very modern blocks of flats, where people like Elton John have their holiday apartments (no, we haven’t met him. Yet).
Do as the locals and take a stroll up or down the fundamenta, and you will find the very best bakeries, butchers, bars, restaurants and cafes. Within minutes you can choose between several restaurants, from the cheaper local trattorias to the legendary Cipriani, Harry's Bar Dolce or the Hilton hotel Mulino Stucky.
200 meters walk from our flat you have a Coop, where you can buy all the groceries and fresh meat and vegetables you need. We have of course a 'carello' - a trolley - that all Venetian households have so that you easily can get your purchases back to the flat.
Interested in a tour-guide?
We are in touch with a local guide who lives at Giudecca. She offers tailor-made walks at Giudecca or in other parts of Venice in fluent English, Italian or Norwegian. Her specialities are within culture and the hidden treasures of the area. Let us know if you are interested - dependent upon availability.
Interested in a local chef?
We can put you in touch with two local chefs that cater for down to only one person - brought to the apartment. They use local ingredients of high quality, all organic. Perfect when you don't feel like going out and don't want to cook either... Dependent on availability.
