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.

Best location for a wonderful stay in Venice.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean, comfortable and in the best imaginable location in Venice -- just a few minutes walk to San Marco, and down a quiet alley from shops and restaurants. Paola was accommodating and helpful. We had a wonderful stay in this apartment and would highly recommend it! Thank you Paola!!

Wonderful apartment in Venice

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time in Paola's apartment. Like all the previous reviewers mentioned, it was very spacious and close to everything, with a view on the canal from the master bedroom and the kitchen, yet very quiet at night. One reviewer mentioned that the internet did not work, however we found that it worked perfectly. Paola was very kind and explained everything to us when we checked in. And she also organized the water taxi for us when we left. The water taxi stop is just outside the apartment where the gondolas pass. That was a big plus as we had a lot of luggage after traveling in Europe for 2 months. Venice was our last stop before going back home and we were so happy that it ended on such high note. We would not hesitate to book this apartment again. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed our stay in the lovely apartment in Venice.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just as advertised, clean, well appointed and close to Piazza St. Marco, but on a quiet side street. We particularly appreciated the well-stocked kitchen, which had a beautiful view of a canal complete with gondoliers. It was also nice to have the use of the clothes washer and dryer, but would have liked to have some instructions in English.

The only negative was that we found the beds were uncomfortable, but we were so tired from sightseeing that we were able to get some sleep.

We recommend this apartment and would rent it again if we returned to Venice.

Excellent property in super condition with the best location.

  • 5 of 5

Cannot fault this lovely,spacious apartment in Venice 2 minutes from St Marks Square and in the centre of everything. It is also in a very quiet situation.Nothing to disturb us as we slept.It is on a gondola route and we loved to sit in the kitchen by the open window and listen to the singing gondoliers - while sipping a glass of wine.Restaurants, shops and supermarket quite close by. This apartment is very spacious with everything ,and more, that you need for a stay in this beautiful city. We were most impressed with the owner, Paola , who made sure we had the best introduction to the apartment and to Venice. We arrived very late and she organised a taxi for us as well as meeting us personally at the water taxi stop - which is just outside the apartment.Brilliant! We loved our time here and if anyone needs a recommendation - look no further. We had no problem with wi-fi connection at all - which was mentioned by another review. A visit to Paola's husband's restaurant should also be included in your trip.Excellent location, friendly waiters, good food which was well priced too. I would definitely return to this apartment and to Venice.

Spacious flat with great location

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this flat overall, mostly due to the location. Having the canal right in back was the best part since we found it relaxing and entertaining to watch the action on the canal. The internet rarely worked while we were there which was a problem for us since we really needed it and it was one of our key filters when choosing a place to rent. Paola said it would be fixed so it may be working now. Some of us in our group of 7 didn't find the beds to be comfortable, but the flat was spacious enough for our group. If renting this flat, use nearby landmarks as your guide on google maps, not the street name. We used the street name and were lost for over an hour. After that we learned to use "osteria" and that got us close enough that we could find our way from there. The flat is lovely and was very clean, I only rated it 3 stars due to the lack of working internet and the beds not being comfortable for several of us.
