About Paola

My name is Paola and I have been living here in Venice since 1983, when I arrived from Rome to reach my mother, Filippa, who had moved because of her job. Here I attended high school and college, graduating in History of Art. I was immediately fallen in love with Venice and so I decided to live here even after the end of my studies. that's why I am still here and I'm always confident and happy with my choice!

Paola purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Paola chose Venice city center

The apartment belonged to my mother who bought it in 2005 because it was a few steps from the house where I live today with my husband Renato. I am very attached to this apartment and the San Marco area where I spent the years of my youth happy and carefree. Despite the inevitable and continuous transformations, the area of San Marco with its beautiful square, its museums and its ancient monuments preserves the infinite charm of a unique city.

What makes this apartment unique

The strengths of the apartment are to be found in the center position, the layout of the rooms (the 3 bedrooms are not neighbors in order to guarantee a good privacy to all guests) and size (126 square feet), making it ideal for a large family or a group of friends. From the windows of the kitchen and the master bedroom you can stop to observe the slow passage of gondolas on the canal of San Moisé.

Very Pleased

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Venice was wonderful and the apartment added positively to our experience. The apartment is in a perfect location...2 minutes walk from San Marco square and right on a canal for direct access by water taxi. Seconds outside the door you will find places that sell sandwiches, drinks, pizza, etc. The supermarket is close by as well as many restaurants. Besides the location, the apartment is clean, comfortable, secure, quiet and adequately sized for 7 to 8 people. It is well maintained and has wonderful wood beams that reminds you that you are in a place that's full of history.

Unfortunately, we did not get a chance to meet Paola but she was very helpful and informative in her communications with us.

We will not hesitate to stay at this apartment again on any future trips to Venice. We highly recommending it.....you will not be disappointed.

Fabulous stay and exceedingly helpful host

  • 5 of 5

Both Paola and the apartment are fabulous. We loved our stay and would come back here again in a heartbeat.

The apartment is enormous, and more than comfortable for two couples, with good distance between the bedrooms. The two sofas in the living room made it very comfortable to sit together in the evenings, and the kitchen was plenty large for the four of us to make breakfast together in the mornings. The beds are comfortable, the location quiet, and everything was super clean. We particularly appreciated having a separate washer and dryer to freshen up our clothes after having traveled for a couple of weeks. There was no skimping on the essentials here.

The location is perfect: an easy walk from the vaporetto, San Marco and a grocery store, not to mention shopping and good restaurants.

Paola is by far the most helpful and pleasant host we have encountered among the vacation apartments we have rented over the years. Although we arrived a bit early, she greeted us promptly and very graciously. She showed us where to find everything in the apartment and how things worked. She also gave us a helpful map of the city and marked recommended restaurants and the grocery store.

By all means, try her husband's restaurant, which is very nearby. The food is so good we ate there two nights in a row, and Paola's husband is as charming and accommodating as she is.

Wonderful stay in Venice

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the apartment by water taxi and the boat stops just about at the door of the apartment. Paola met us and showed us the apartment. The apartment actually is better than the photos! It is very spacious and modern as well as a lovely "rustic" lounge. There was more than enough space for us all. 3 big bedrooms with very comfy beds! The main bathroom was huge with a lovely bath. Second bathroom compact with a nice shower. We were able to do our washing which was a huge bonus and there was a dryer as well.

The kitchen was very well stocked for cooking.......pity we were not there long enough to cook!.

The apartment is in a Amazing location!!! Not even 5 mins to St Marks square. We could easily walk to Rialto and everywhere we wanted to go.

Hard Rock cafe is around the corner as are loads of lovely restaurants and shops. Loved walking the narrow streets of venice.

If you are wondering wether to book or not...... Book this apartment you will not be sorry!!

beautiful apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Paola's apartment is absolutely gorgeous, at the end of a very quiet cup-de-sac just 5 minutes walk from Piazza San Marco. Everything was in perfect condition. If we ever return to Venice we would not consider staying anywhere else!

Spacious, beautiful, great location

  • 5 of 5

This lovely apartment is exactly as shown and exceeded our expectation. The rooms are spacious and can easily accommodate 6 adults. The view of the canal and gondolas from the windows is endlessly fascinating. The kitchen is well appointed and easy to navigate. Paola was a wonderful host and was very easy to work with. Our only hiccup involved getting to the condo upon our arrival by private water taxi. Although we paid to go straight to the door, our taxi driver dropped us at the main canal, requiring us to drag our large suitcases many block and up and down staircases. (Paola said this is a common problem as the taxi drivers try to avoid driving down the smaller canals if they can get away with it.) We suggest you get a photo from Paola of the exact spot where you should be dropped and check to make sure you are in the right place before leaving the water taxi.

Wonderful apartment and host

  • 5 of 5

My family of two adult and kids ages 22, 20, 17, stayed here for three nights and I only wish we could have stayed longer! Paola was a wonderful host. The apartment is in an old building but completely updated. There was plenty of room for all of us.It is in a very quiet area but only steps to the shops and San Marco. We ate at Paola's husband's restaurant and it was one of the best meals we had! I would highly recommend staying at this beautiful apartment!
