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.
Francesca and her mother Emanuela were amazing hosts! Francesca sent me by email a lot of useful information about Venice that helped me move throgh the city without problem. At the apartment I only met Emanuela but she was lovely! I really enjoyed talking to her. Both of them made my experience in Venice amazing! The apartment was super confortable, clean and nice. To get there after a day walking through the city is a quite difficult, it is easy to get lost in that area. Nevertheless I really recommend the apartment!
Great welcome from Francesca's mother and father, who are on hand at the property. Basic cleaning and food items provided, and a couple of treats as well.
The listing is accurate; the property is clean, amazingly well appointed and we made good use of the table outside in the garden.
The neighbourhood is quiet and off the beaten track, though only 5 minutes from San Stae on the Grand Canal, 15 minutes from Piazza San Marco on foot, and has good restaurants and bars, plus an excellent bakery nearby for breakfast.
Francesca and her mother Emanuala were very lovely and made us feel very welcome. The apartment was very nice and very centrally located!
Logement parfait! Nous avons été accueillis par la mère de Francesca qui nous a expliqué tout en détail (pour l'appartement mais aussi pour les restaurants, etc.). Le logement est très bien et le quartier central et très tranquille! Nous étions 2 adultes et 2 enfants et le logement était parfaitement adapté.
Very nice appartment in the middle of Venice! Good access from the station and the boat station. It's ideal for 3-4 persons.
Thank to Francesca and her family!
Die Unterkunft fanden wir genau so vor, wie sie beschrieben war: Sehr gepflegt, sehr hochwertig eingerichtet (Bäder, Küche) mit einem wunderbar gepflegten Garten.
Der Empfang durch die Mutter von Francesca war sehr herzlich, beide, sowohl Francesca und auch die Mutter, Frau Emanuela Pasti, kümmerten sich vorbildlich um uns und unsere Fragen. Emanuela hat uns auch für Samstagabend einen Tisch in der Osteria La Madonna, einem sehr bekannten Lokal für venetianische Spezialitäten, bestellt. So wurden wir dort herzlich empfangen und hatten einen gelungenen Abend mit hervorragendem Essen.
Gerne erwähne ich auch, dass wir von Francescas Mutter mit dem sehr guten Wein ihres eigenen Weingutes versorgt wurden, wobei der Flaschenpreis von 5,- € äußerst günstig kalkuliert war.
Wir möchten uns bei der Familie Pasti an dieser Stelle nochmals sehr herzlich bedanken.

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.
