Perfect and charming apartment with great hosts

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults, 2 children) just returned home from a 3 week vacation in Europe and Venice was definitely the highlight!! We stayed at the apartment for 3 nights. The apartment was in a perfect location, close to all the major attractions. We enjoyed being able to stop by 'home' to freshen up during the day as needed. It was clean, large and spacious with full kitchen, 2 bathrooms and laundry. There were beautiful windows where we could sit and watch the gondolas go by. It was full of character and charm, from the entry, to the foyer to the actual apartment itself.

The hosts were very helpful. They provided fresh fruit, croissants and coffee for breakfasts and there was a COOP grocery store close by where we were able to purchase other snacks. We had difficulty getting a water taxi to take us to the airport (since the film festival was on) but Stefano was able to come through in a pinch - THANK YOU!

As many apartments in Europe, you have to bring your own toiletries and soap. The sofa bed in the living room was fine for the kids, but may not be as comfortable for heavier adults. The mattress in the master bedroom was great. The air conditioning worked well. The wifi was hit or miss and worked well in certain parts of the apartment only.

Overall, this was an excellent experience for us....great apartment, wonderful hosts, perfect location. We will definitely be back and will recommend to our friends!

This well appointed flat was in a perfect location. It is right on a canal, so you can watch the gondolas pass by the window as you sip on your morning coffee. The flat was spotless and the perfect size for our family of 4. It is a 2 minute walk from the Rialto Bridge and 4 minutes from Piazza di San Marco. Our host was very responsive, and there was fresh fruit and croissants for us when we arrived. I highly recommend staying here if you come to Venice.

Loved every minute and everything about this place

  • 5 of 5

The magical part of this apartment is that the windows look out on the canal. It is safe and secure and yet unique. It is a small but useful space – clean and very Italian. We had everything we needed. The personal touches were appreciated. The Wifi worked! The keys worked. The air conditioning worked. The bathrooms were lovely, complete with bidet.

Giorgia was very helpful and accommodating. She provided everything we needed, including helping us with a personal lost passport issue. She was very available on our time line. She appeared when we needed her, was present without being intrusive – and always with a smile.

It was very important to Georgia and her team, that we could see Venice with positive eyes. They wanted us to have a whole experience and went above and beyond. That was delightful.

Once we stopped getting lost, we discovered that it was only a 10 minute walk to the Rialto Bridge and a 10 minute walk to San Marco even with the huge crowds of high tourist season.

This is the perfect place for someone who wants to experience and be a part of a real Venician neighborhood removed from the Grand Canal and the mobs of tourists and yet within easy walking distance of all the attractions of Venice.

We were able to get to and use the Vaporetto system, ride on Gondolas, and the boat to the train station and the airport all from the Rialto bridge – just a 10 minute walk with roller suitcases from the apartment

if you want the experience of being part of a colorful neighborhood then this is your place, It gives you that experience in a way that hotel row doesn’t. It gives you the feeling of belonging in Venice.

The property worked as well for us - two friends traveling to Venice for a conference on San Sovolo – as it did for my daughter’s family of 5. (2 adults and 3 small children.) We hope to come back again!

great location

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Giorgia's and Francesca's apartment, from location to amenities. Apartment is very quiet yet at the center of action near Realto Bridge.

Apartment is next to a canal and you can see 'gondoliers' through the window.

Grocery store, shops, ATM, restaurants, great gellateria are all very conveniently located near the apartment.

Two AC units, two bathrooms and a small kitchen were more than enough for our 4 member family during our 4 day stay. Also very clean and neat.

Would return there in a heartbeat.

Perfect location next to Realto Bridge in Venice.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment (me, my wife and two daughters 10 and 13) for 3 nights.

Located next to Realto Bridge and enjoyed watching gondolas go by from your window.

Lot of nice restaurants close by including a grocery shop (coop). Apartment is very neat and clean and up-to-date. Very convenient small kitchen/refrigerator for breakfast. Also used washing machine couple of times. Giorgia lives in the next floor and available for any questions. She sent her daughter to pick us up from Vaporetto station. Forgot about the basket full of fruits on arrival. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay here again.
