Most perfect apartment in a perfect central location
We chose Padua as a central location to stay to tour the region and chose this apartment because it is located close to the center of town with great restaurants and the train station. Padua surprised us with how much there was to see!
The owner met us at the property and gave us details of the apt and the surrounding area. The apartment was quite large, and the kitchen well-stocked with pots, pans, glassware, and even coffee, sugar, jams, etc. it was easy to have breakfast in house at the beginning of each day. A small grocery store is across the street and a really cool enoteca is around the corner. They even have several art books to view details of all the frescos and artwork of the region - very helpful in planning and appreciating your tours. Amazing laundry room too! This is probably the nicest apartment or condo we’ve ever stayed in. The only downside is that there is no free parking. Next time, though, I don’t think we’d rent a car since public transportation is so great around here.
Great location and homy place
The location is ideal. It's equal distance from St. Anthony and the piazzas. Right down the street there is a big bookstore, grocery stores, farmer markets, bars, etc. etc. The apartment is wonderful, clean, elegant. There was some problem communicating with the host. I managed to finally get in touch with them only 10 minutes before arrival to location. Everything went well in the end, but it was quite stressful. I think this is more a problem with vrbo, which makes it hard to communicate directly with the host.
Wonderful, spacious apartment
Wonderful apartment (in spite of the heat not being able to be switched off in April); spacious with everything we needed including a grocery store across the street and being close to the center of town.
Lorenza was warm, welcoming and showed us how things worked in the apartment. Giocomo was very responsive with any questions we had and even drove me to the hospital and translated what I needed to the triage nurse. Above and beyond what I would expect!
Terrific Apartment in a Super Location - Best of the Best
Giacomo (son) was terrific at check-in - excellent command of English. The Review Title says it all; 150 metres from the central Piazza Erbe and some good restaurants close by.
La Vecchia Enoteca, Osteria L'Anfora and Osteria dal Capo plus Shanghai for a change of taste. Despite the restaurants being regularly fully booked, turning up at opening time may allow the proprietor to slip you in before a late booking.
The ZTL access makes life easy when travelling to outlying locations. We drove across the causeway directly into the Piazzale Roma Venice carpark (Euro 26) rather than mess around at a Mestre carpark and then pay for bus/train into Venice - the extra Euro 8 was worth the convenience.
Central, Quiet Apartment
We decided to start our holiday in Italy exploring Padova and are pleased we did. Giacomo met us at the station and drove us to this very comfortable, well equipped and provisioned apartment in the centre of the old town. The location could not have been better. Only a few steps from the central market and the university. Giacomo’s sister visited with a cake and champagne, organised by one of our sons for my wife’s birthday. A very nice surprise. Padova is well worth a visit and this apartment is an excellent place to stay.
Gracious hosts, comfortable and beautiful apartment in a perfect location.
We feel very fortunate to have found this wonderful apartment. We appreciated that Giacomo picked us up at the train station and that he and his Mom personally made sure that all of our needs were met before they left us to enjoy our 10 days in Padova. Giacomo very responsive by text to any questions we had later on.
The apartment is spacious, immaculate, and beautifully updated. It was extremely well stocked including fresh fruit, juices, milk, water, and yogurt in the refrigerator as well as dry and canned foods in the cabinet. The location is central and within walking distance to all of the sites of Padova.
We highly recommend this apartment and plan to stay here again on our next visit.
