About Stefano

I am a CNR scientist in the field of controlled thermounclear fusion. I rent two nice flats in Venice. This one is perfectly located both for visiting the ancient city and going to the beach at Lido (I use it myself when I have no guests).

Feel free to contact me if you have any question.

Cheers, Stefano

Stefano purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Stefano chose Venice

I love have guests in my apartment, though it is not my main work.

I believe it is good both for the tourists (who always enjoy the accomodation), for the city of Venice, for the people who work to maintain and clean the apartment, wash the linen, accompany the guests, and, last but not least, for myself ( I get some extra income from this job).

But the best reward is to receive enthusiastic messages from you after an happy holiday in our magic Venice!

What makes this apartment unique

The flat is very nice and it is perfectly located both for visiting the ancient city and to go to the beach at Lido (I use it myself when I have no guests). It is also very close to the Biennale of Art.

Venice condominium

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and close to everything. More in the local area rather than the tourist part which was great. I would stay again.

LOCATION, LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect apartment for our group of 5. We were attending the Venice Biennale' Vernissage week and the location was ideal as we had a lot of events to attend at the Arsenale'. The apartment is exactly as the pictures show and is very well equipped in the kitchen. Stefano is the perfect host, always available on WhatsApp if you have any questions. We look forward to coming back to Venice in the future and will definitely make contact with Stefano as he has 3 apartments of various sizes to accommodate small to large groups. Thanks Stefano

Absolute gem!!

  • 5 of 5

We, family with three teenagers, had a fantastic stay in Venice. The apartment was spotless clean, modern and spacious. Location was great, 2 minute walk from waterbus stop and a 15 minute walk to the centre of Venice. Lovely traditional neighbourhood with local shops, bakeries an a great pizzeria. Would highly recommend this apartment, it's perfect in every way.

Excellent choice for accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect – the renting process was very smooth, Stefano promptly responds to any questions (if any are left after perusing the detailed information on the website).

The apartment is as described, comfortable, close to everything, but on a quiet street. For breakfast we enjoyed coffee (brewed in the kitchen, which is fully equipped) together with a “cornetto al cioccolato” (chocolate croissant) hot from the oven from the nearby bakery. There is also a boat on a nearby canal that sells fresh fruits and vegetables every morning, and a couple a places selling fresh fish and seafood… and… but I will let you discover all of them.

Highly recommended. Thank you Stefano for everything, it was a great vacation.

Great flat in a peaceful part of Venice

  • 5 of 5

We had a great short stay. The flat has got everything your need, is in a very relaxing part of Venice but also just a short walk to St Mark's square. A two minute stroll takes you to Via Giuseppe Garibaldi which has all the shops, restaurants and bars you could need. Thanks Stefano for a great flat

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is not big, but has everything: a fully equipped kitchen, two bathrooms, two bedrooms, a sofa bed in the living room plus an extra bed for a child. The location is great, the middle of a quiet residential area, with the laundry flapping above the street, all very authentic. Public transport is close by, making the historic center of Venice within reach. Nearby are great restaurants and shops, and the site of the Biennale.

The owner has given extensive information prior to our arrival, we were picked up at the vaporette and brought to the apartment. If any problem would arise, we could easily have contact by mail and Skype.

I would recommend this apartment without hesitation to my friends and hope to stay there again when I visit Venice.

Luxury apartment at second/last floor of a typical Venetian residence in the sestiere Castello. The location, very close to the Biennale of Arts Gardens and to the ancient Arsenale is very safe and quiet, but also strategically placed to visit all of Venice.

From your new home the whole Venice will be at your disposal. A nice 10 minute walk along the wonderful Riva degli Schiavoni will lead you into the vibrating hearth of San Marco square with the fabulous Basilica and magnificent Palazzo Ducale. A day at the beach? Just 10 minute by boat and you will be at the Lido. Do you fell lazy? At less than 5 minute walk you'll have the Biennale of Arts Gardens, the Arsenale, the Naval History Museum.

Very close to the apartment the beautiful via Garibaldi with bars, reastaurants, a boat selling fruit and vegetables, butcher, fresh fish shop, a supermarket.

A hostess will meet you at the GIardini Biennale vaporetto (boat-bus) stop and accompany you to the apartment.
