From Oct 24 - 26, 2015 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
Un 10 con mayúsculas, tanto por el trato de los anfitriones como por la situación del apartamento.
El apartamento esta equipado con el más mínimo detalle tanto en instalaciones como complementos.
L'appartement est tout simplement parfait. Nous étions quatre adultes et nous avions notre propre salle de bain.
Nous avons été accueilli par Emmanuella, quelle dame fantastique!!!
Elle nous a fait visité et tout expliqué le fonctionnement de la cuisinière, des airs climatisées, de la laveuse. Concernant la cuisine, tout y est et de très bonne qualité, nous pouvons cuisiner comme à la maison. Ils avaient prévu des produits, comme du lait, de l'eau, du jus, des pâtes, de la sauce tomate et biscuits alors même si on arrive tard, on peut se nourrir sans sortir. On retrouve à 5 min. une épicerie Coop et aussi à 15 min. le matin, on peut aller au marché Rialto
Le jardin est vraiment une source de réconfort après une grosse journée à visiter les merveilles de Venise. Je recommande à tous de faire un séjour d'au moins 4 nuits chez Francesca, Emmanuella et son conjoint. Nous reviendrons c'est certain
un gros merci

Quel magnifique séjour dans cet appartement (maison) de Francesca. Nous n'avons pas fait la rencontre de Francesca, mais celle de ses parents. 2 personnes extraordinaires toujours là pour nous aider. Cet endroit était pour nous un petit paradis! La terrasse extérieure où l'on pouvait manger! Il y avait même un terrain de tennis. Tout était fonctionnel dans la maison. Très propre! Coin tranquille sans trop être loin des diverses attractions. Si nous revenons un jour à Venise nous saurons où rester!
My family had a great experience with Francesca and her lovely home in Venice. We were traveling with two children 5 and 10 y old; the vacation home was great hide away from the summer heat in July. The location is very quiet and convenient, close enough to get to any place. I walked to Rialto bridge twice in about 10 to 15 min. There was pizza and coffee shop around the corner which was really convinent.
We were greeted by Francesca's mother upon arrival and she took great care in showing us all of the features of the apartment. Signora Pasti also made dinner reservations for us and pointed us in the direction of several nearby restaurants, bakeries, and the grocery store.
The apartment is ABSOLUTELY fantastic and even better than what is shown in the pictures. The kitchen was well-stocked and Francesca provided some necessities to tie us over until we were able to get to the local grocery store. The interior courtyard and garden are stunning and this is a fantastic place to sip a glass of wine before going out for the evening.
The location is incredible as the apartment is located between two of the more prominent squares in San Polo. It takes only a few minutes to walk to the Rialto Bridge, as well as several of the stunning cathedrals in San Polo. It is about a 15 minute walk from the train station.
I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone who enjoys a quiet, charming, fashionable space that is ideally located, spotless and orderly, and run by wonderfully hospitable owners. Thank you for a truly memorable stay!
We have travelled around Italy recently, and we stayed at several flats from airbnb, Francesca's is the best among all! Before arrival, Francesca gave us information about how to arrive and provided a list of good restaurants and supermarket nearby, when we arrived, we had great welcome from Francesca's parents, and during our stay, the Pasti family gave us a lot of care and warm help! Francesca's parents are so kind, they just like everyone's grandparents. The flat itself is really cozy and pretty, with a cute colourful garden, and the kitchen is well equipped, really good for cooking. Everything is just so perfect,they are the reason for me to come to Venezia again!
Nos recibió la madre de Francesca, Emanuella, una mujer encantadora, que junto con indicarnos las normas de la casa, nos recomendó restaurantes y lugares para visitar, ofreciéndonos ayuda para reservas donde fuere necesario.
El departamento no era como las fotografías..... era mejor. Muy buenas instalaciones, dos dormitorios, cada uno con su baño. Cocina bien equipada. Todo de primer nivel.
Con un jardín interior donde sentarse a conversar y tomar unas copas.
Check in y check out muy fácil.
Ubicado en un sector tranquilo de Venecia y muy cerca de todo.

About the Host, Francesca
I'm usually happy and busy, often compelled to move forward, even when I don't have a direction.
I'm thoroughly fascinated with food. Growing, making, sharing, eating, and composting. Also the wider topics: land use, infrastructure, social justice, environmental and human health.
I mostly love being with my family and - generally speaking - with children. Walking, running, farming, biking, playing, working...doesn't matter, so long as my family and children are around.
