In the center of the historic city. Convenient to everything. Lovely atmosphere.

In the first level you will find an open space with a large elegant living room, exposed beams and original inlaid wooden floor, illuminated by two windows that overlook the square and the magnificent Palazzo della Ragione. A decorative fireplace warms the environment and makes it even more welcoming. You have a practical kitchen and a bathroom with a shower. There is also a washing machine.

The squares are the historic and social center of the city of Padua, in them the evening ritual of the Spaniards of Padua takes place, while in the morning we attend the picturesque city market where shopping is a pleasure for the senses.

We loved this apartment.
I have been to Italy 7 times and this has been my best experience ever. This unit is right in the heart of everything. You literally walk out the door and you are in Piazza Erbe (which has fresh fruits and vegetables every day – paradise for a vegan). The apartment has a stove and refrigerator so we saved a fortune on eating out by making our meals at home. How about this, buying a bottle of Chianti downstairs for less than 3 Euros. Sunday we took the train to Venice (4.6 E) and spent the day. Last year I spent about $350 per night for a room in Venice. The train was only 30 minutes. What a savings.
This apartment has two windows overlooking the Piazza. One night we sat there and watched 50 people dancing in the Piazza to Andrea Bocelli music. We walked every night. The area was always crowed with other couples out to enjoy the evening. Not one hassle in the 7 days we were there. The apartment is in a well-maintained older building and really gives you the experience of living in the “old country” where my grandfather was born. The apartment is adorable and worked for us perfectly (we are both retired). You do have to deal with some stairs, but it was well worth it and burning those extra calories allowed me to enjoy more wine.
We are going back and will stay there again. I highly recommend it to anyone that wants to be in the center of activity and experience the real Italian life style. Watch Rick Steve’s video on Padova and you will understand why this is such a great place to visit.
Thank you Richard. We will be happy to host you again. Sara.
beautiful apartment in great location!
My husband and I rented this apartment for the month of October as we were in Padova for work. The apartment is very nice and located in a perfect location.
Reasons why we liked the apartment itself:
- the bathroom has been recently remodeled. It is true that, as the owner says, the water pressure is a bit low, but that's not a big problem
- the kitchen has enough tools to cook basic meals. There is no oven or dishwasher, but we were able to cook lots of meals at home
- the bed is pretty comfortable
- the wireless connection worked well and allowed us to work from home as well. It was a bit discontinuous once more than one device was connected, particularly downstairs.
What could be improved in the apartment for long stays (not short ones):
- for a long stay such as ours, an additional set of sheets and towels would be helpful. The owner made those available to us once we asked, which was great
Reasons why we liked the location:
- the apartment is located within the pedestrian historic center, which is the best part of the city. All major sites are within 10-15 minutes walk.
- the square is beautiful and the apartment faces Palazzo della Ragione, gorgeous view
- there is a fruit and vegetables market downstairs which is great. The market is every morning except Sunday
- there are also supermarkets conveniently located, including one directly downstairs
- there are a variety of great coffee shops and restaurants close by
What could be challenging about the location:
- opening the windows means lots of noise at night and early morning. The square is pretty frequented by people every night and the market sets up early morning. Closing the windows is best and eliminates most of the noise
Delightful, full of character, centrally placed but not noisy and ideal for a couple.
My wife and sister had a wonderful time visiting friends and seeing Padua and the environs. Padua as a university city has a vibrant nightlife. Venice is a short and cheap train ride away as well. Padua is a gastronomic delight and local wines of good quality but you should forget about keeping your waistline.Interesting enough for my wife to want to buy a flat. However it was colder than anticipated in April
The flat is full of character and the only downsides are that it would be awkward for those with disabilities in that the bedroom is accessed via a narrow spiral staircase and the flat is several floors up. As the bathroom facilities are on the floor below if you are caught short at night the spiral staircase has to be navigated. A night jar would help. Further, the lock is a bit stiff at entrance level to the block and could do with oiling or replacing. My sister in law had to call on friendly locals to help on one occasion. Guests should also be aware that some of the plugs in the flat are not standard european, being from a different era, and therefore they should bring the full World spectrum adaptors to accommodate.
Having said the above the flat was clean and tidy and everything worked. The markets and shops were very accessible and access was given promptly, though knowledge of Italian or Spanish will help with the landlady's agent as she doesn't speak English
Wunderschöne Woche im Herzen der Altsstadt
Frau Terrassan hat eine sehr schöne Ferienwohnung im Zentrum Paduas. Die Wohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Direkt vor der Tür befindet sich der Markt sowie eine Markthalle - wer gerne kocht ist hier genau richtig. Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten lassen sich gut zu Fuß erreichen. Die Wohnubg an sich ist gut ausgestattet, für die zentrale Lage ruhig. Frau Terassan ist eine sehr angenehme Vermieterin und hat sich bei Rückfragen immer schnell zurückgemeldet und uns so eine wunderbare Zeit ermöglicht.
Vielen Dank! Ich hoffe Ihnen hier in Padua wieder zusehen.
Wohnung zum Wohlfühlen
Wohnung mit viel Charme zum Wohlfühlen mitten im Zentrum. Bestens ausgestattet.
Vielen Dank Gerhard. Ich offe Ihnen wiederzusehhen. Sara
Besser geht es kaum. Alles von hier zu Fuß zu erreichen. Einkauf rund um die Uhr möglich. Die Küche sollte mit Mikrowelle Toaster Teekanne und Salatschüssel nachgerüstet werden, kleine Investition mit Riesenwirkung. Der Markt vor der Tür verführt zum selber kochen. Wer geht da noch Pizza essen? Wir empfehlen die Unterkunft und kommen bestimmt wieder! Danke
Vielen Dank Claudia! Ich hoffe euch in piazza delle Erbe wiederzusehen.
The apartment is located in the historic city center, in front of the Palazzo della Ragione, the ancient center of the city as it was the seat of the City Court, under which for centuries the characteristic market takes place "under the living room," very close to ' ancient and famous historical site of the University of Padua: the Bo ', whose ancient courtyard is richly adorned with the crests of the noble families that first made you study their children. Here it is also the anatomical theater and Galileo's professorship. The major museums are within walking distance in a short time. Civic museums "the Hermits" in which salt is a rich collection of archaeological finds from Roman times and a beautiful art gallery. From here you access to the famous and unmissable "Scrovegni Chapel", painted by Giotto in the '300. Other locations of great value exposures are the Zuckerman and Palazzo Zabarella, both close; the Musmè, the medical museum is located in Via San Francesco, ancient and architecturally impressive road that leads to the Holy pilgrimage center, second only to the Vatican in Rome. For those who love the theater and does not want to miss performances of the highest level, the Teatro Verdi, is a five minute walk. The train station is a twenty minute walk and five minutes by tram; from here you can reach Venice in 20 minutes. For those who like to pamper yourself, the Abano Terme Terme can be reached by public bus (letters A-M-AT-L) in half an hour. The bus stop is a five minute walk.
