We are frequent travelers to Venice, but this was our first apartment stay, and we remain overjoyed that we chose Gabriella's charming property. The apartment, recently restored to great effect and beautifully maintained, retains its original Venetian charm while offering modern conveniences. A very special feature of this property, which sets it apart from the others: the altana (roof-top deck), whereupon we spent each early evening sipping drinks, gazing over the rooftops of Venezia. (Does it get any better than that?!) The apartment's central location in San Polo cannot be beat. All needs are easily met here: The immediate surrounding area (Campo dei Frari -- populated during the day, serene/quiet at night) includes cafes, restaurants, markets, shops; the vaporetto landing (San Toma') is a mere three-minute stroll away. We simply can't say enough about Gabriella herself. She is a gem. All correspondence to her leading up to our stay was answered promptly, completely; she met us at Campo dei Frari; toured us through the apartment, clearly explained all relevant info, and provided extra special welcoming touches (prosecco, biscotti). Useful printed apt. info is also on hand at the property, as well as thoughtful restaurant recommendations, etc. I'm sum, we HIGHLY recommend Gabriella's apartment and can't wait to return!

Beautiful centrally located flat

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely flat - it was just as described and Gabriella included some lovely extras including some delicious local Prosecco. The roof terrace was amazing! It was in a great location only 10 minutes from the railway station and very close to a vaparetto stop. there were lovely local shops and supermarkets very close by ( which Gabriella told us about).The flat was immaculate and had everything you could need. Gabriella was very helpful and easy to communicate with and gave us lots of helpful tips when we met her. I would definitely recommend this flat to anyone.

L'appartement de Gabriella est absolument parfait pour apprécier cette belle ville. Il est équipé de tout ce dont on peut avoir besoin. Et il possède une petite terrasse qui surplombe les toits de Venise. Agréable en tous points.

Gabriella a été d'une grande gentillesse, attentive à nos moindre besoins.

Je recommande absolument cet appartement et j'y reviendrai sans faute si l'occasion se représente.

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have both been lucky enough to visit Venice many times using both hotels and apartments. This is definitely the best apartment we have stayed in. The location is great, the apartment beautifully furnished and immaculately clean and the roof terrace.... what a treat - I could almost touch the Frari church!! We really didn't want to leave.

If we visit Venice in the future (and we definitely will), We won't hesitate to book the apartment. Thank you Gabriella, we hope to see you again very soon.

This is a great and very special place to stay and we enjoyed it very much; it is perfectly located and has everything you need and so much more (the roof-terrace is a dream).

We had a very warm and friendly welcome, the appartement was very clean and was exactly like advertised.

We can recommend it and hope to come back again in the future!
