This apartment is in a superb quiet location, with very few tourists yet very close to 'everything'. We very much enjoyed walking to and from the apartment.

Communication was excellent. We were welcomed at the Vaporetto by Adrianna, a lovely lady who walked us to the apartment. Adriana also took the time to give us great tips on what to see in Venice.

We loved the small cafés close by and the windows opening on the canal.

We found the place immaculate with everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable. We would definitely come back!

Quiet and convenient

  • 4 of 5

Very well located by an canal in a convenient but quiet location. The apartment was well equiped and in a neighbourhood frequented by locals with few tourists. There was plenty of space and it was decorated in a fanciful manner. Not far from St Mark's Square and we were able to walk to most places of interest.

Great Apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I toured Italy for a few weeks and rented several apartments. Guy's apartment was one of our favorites! He was away when we arrived so he sent his representative, Michela. She was very friendly, receptive and thorough. The apartment was beautiful! It was clean, well equipped and just as described. I highly recommend staying here!

Beautiful flat in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I cannot recommend this property more highly. Everything you require for a self catering holiday in Venice is provided in a central location. We were met by the friendly local representative of the owner, who guided us to the property and gave tips on local amenities. If we needed help during our stay, she lived close at hand and told us to contact her (this was not required).

The large flat is in a picturesque location by a canal in a local residential area only 6 mins walk from San Marco. Lots of good local shops, cafe and restaurants are within 3 minutes walk. Very quiet, very few tourists.

There were 4 in our party. The large spare bed is at the opposite end of the property from the bedroom and bathroom, so this was not a problem.

This was our second 1 week stay in Venice; if we come back we will stay at this property again.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

That was a perfect place with everything that you need and more.

We've been in this apartment for 4 days and we did not want to leave it. The location is great - there is a supermarket a minute walk away, bars and of course the San Marco square (15 min walk).

Guido was very kind and hospitable. He answered all our questions and told us what we need to know about our vacation in Venice.

Perfect place to stay in the most wonderful city :)

We can not wait to go back.

Nice apartment in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the apartment for 4 nights over Xmas. It is very well located, in 8 minutes you are in S. Marco square and 4 minutes to the vapporeto stop. It is a beautiful area of the city to walk around and get lost in the incredible Venice. The apartment is big, clean, had everything we needed. The bed is very comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped and the supermarket is 2 minutes away. It is nicely decorated. The check in was very easy and quick thanks to Guy and Mimi's organization. We highly recommend this apartment.
