About Scilla Chiesi
Hello, my name is Scilla and I would be happy to host you! I have been managing this house of my parents since 2013 and the thing I like most is to come in contact with all the people in the world. I love traveling, seeing new places and meeting people. I would like your stay in my apartment to be the best possible and I am at your disposal for every request, suggestion and information!
Scilla Chiesi purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Scilla Chiesi chose Venice-Murano-Burano
Historic apartment of the XIV Century, recently renovated and furnished in Venetian style, with exposed beams and Murano glass chandeliers. Equipped with all the comforts. It is located in the Dorsoduro district, an area off the beaten track, but full of restaurants and bars. From the Cà Rezzonico ferry stop (it is about 300 meters walk from the apartment - no bridge) it is easy to reach in a few minutes all the tourist areas of Venice (Piazza San Marco, Rialto Bridge, Islands ...).
What makes this Apartment unique
My favorite thing about this house is definitely the place where it is located. It is a quiet neighborhood, but very charming. You can find many restaurants and walking at the same time without being overwhelmed by the crowd of people. It lets you see and discover a venice a little different. Despite this, in a short time from here you can reach all major points of interest, either on foot or with the ferry boat (3 minutes). The house is in Venetian style and is treated in detail to accommodate the most people.

Beautiful, real Venice living
The apartment captures the essence of Venice. The location is wonderful, close enough to all of the "touristy" areas but far enough so that you feel like you are living like a true Venetian. The walls are fabric and the decor is just amazing. You will have everything you need for your stay, Scilla even provided a baby bed and high chair. Communication was outstanding and she was very accommodating when our train was cancelled, delaying our arrival by a whole day. Would stay here again and would absolute recommend to my friends/family.
Wonderful unit in a fun but relatively quiet area of Venice
This property would be at the top of my list for a repeat trip to Venice. The only thing it was missing was a place to relax outdoors (which is hard to find anyway in Venice). Otherwise it was absolutely perfect. The location was ideal for many reasons: the area has everything you'd want including businesses and even an excellent grocery not far away; being across the Grand canal from tourist central meant it was protected from the throngs but was easy to walk to those areas when needed, the square within 2 blocks became a new favorite place to hang out in the evening, and it was a surprisingly reasonable walk to the train station for the traveller with lesser amounts of luggage. The unit was in extremely good condition and very well appointed. A/C was powerful. Communication with owners was easy and they were very helpful in figuring out if this size unit would work for our family.
What an amazing property! We couldn't have asked for a better location...coffee, food and shopping within a block.
We loved everything about the property - the location, the rooms, the air conditioning, the cleanliness, the property manager. Thank you for the complimentary prosecco in the fridge.
If you are going to stay in Venice - this is place to stay. The location was not crowded and was perfect walking distance to everything we wanted to do. And, the pizza place at the front door was delicious and so much more than a pizza place.
If you are going to Venice - you should stay here.
Charming, lavish, historical apartment in the heart of Venice
My husband and I stayed here with our 3 girls (17, 11, & 6). The apartment was the perfect size for our group and provided good sized bathrooms and bedrooms. Everything was decorated to the hilt in antique fashion to make our vintage stay in Venice that much more authentic...down to the coffee pot and toaster...and living room television. Yet it was very fashionably up to date and provided all of the modern day expectancies.
The location was perfect. It was easy to find and Scilla went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and content. My 6 year old daughter forgot her purse in the room (a small souvenir purchased in italy) and Scilla retrieved it from the apartment and brought it to us at the train station. We so appreciated her random act of kindness and would not accept anything in return for her trouble.
We loved the location. It was a great area of town and close to groceries, fantastic restaurants, and beautiful sights.
We would recommend this apartment and stay again in the future.
Thank you so much for a great stay and experience!
Incredible stay in authentic Venetian apartment!
We loved everything about this apartment! Traveling with our three young children (9,5,3) this apartment was the perfect place to stay for three days in Venice. The area is free from the chaos of the touristy areas but still has great bars and restaurants and an easy walk to every attraction. Scilla was an excellent host who explained easily how to get the apartment and met us there right on time. It was a 3 minute walk from the water taxi stop. Scilla left us wonderful Easter chocolates and prosecco and some crackers for the children. It was such a nice touch. But the real star was the apartment. Spacious and with incredible ceilings. The pictures do not do it justice it is spectacular. The kitchen was fully stocked so it was easy to cook for a family of five (which we did twice). And great laundry facilities (key for families). Overall the kids and I loved being there and the surrounding area. And check out the African restaurant right next door it was a hidden gem that Scilla pointed out. We would absolutely return - and hope to one day!!!
Fabulous Venetian Jewel
This apartment is brilliant. Totally Venetian gorgeous with everything you could want. It is in a great location. We traveled with 3 grandchildren and were comfortable leaving them in Piazza San Barnaba so they could buy their gelati and then sit on the steps on the bridge to eat them before making their way home. We felt very smug going out with our shopping jeep to the supermercato and the canal boat selling the fruit and veg.
Scilla was reliable, gracious and generous with our welcome gifts and basic foodstuffs in stock. We have stayed in Venice many times but this was without doubt our best accommodation and location. Jan - Melbourne, Australia
