Cosy studio flat in the heart of Venice, great location, it's between San Marco Square and Rialto bridge, very close to many beautiful art galleries and typical local restaurants and bars.

The Space

The flat is nice and welcoming, it's not big but it has everything needed for a short stay in Venice, it's a studio flat with a comfy double mezzanine bed, a sofa which can be used as single bed, kitchen facilities and the toilet with sink and shower in the flat is brand new. Be aware there is no air conditioning in the flat but I provide a fan in hot weather season.
The flat is a good size to fit two people, but if you want to come in a group of three I can accomodate you happily.

Interaction with Guests

I work just at the ground floor of the same building of the flat so I am available anytime for anything needed, if you need to have any information about the area, or need help with the flat or just want advice for your stay in Venice in terms of place to see, good typical restaurant or bars to go to I'll be very glad to help.

The Neighborhood

The location is great, is right in the Center of Venice, next to the Academia bridge and beautiful campo santo Stefano, the ferry stop is San Samuele is just one minute away so it's very easy to get here and very handy if you have luggage.
Also if you love art is great because is next to Palazzo Grassi and Palazzo Fortuni beautiful palaces converted in museums.
San Marco square and the Rialto bridge are both less than 10 minutes walking from the flat.

Other Things to Note

I'm very flexible for check ins, please contact me by message to arrange the best way to meet each other.
I always meet my guests personally, take them to the flat, show them around and leave them their keys.

  • Sadly we never got to meet Virginia but she was very helpful over messages and when we called her. The flat is, as stated, very small but super close to get to anywhere of interest in Venice. You would pay triple at any hotel for the location alone. The little lights and decorations on the wall give the place a cozy ambience. The bed is on a loft structure and with the two of us it was a little precarious and squeaky but would be fine for one person or two small people. It is also a good way to conserve the space in the room. The little fridge struggled to keep things cold, but you're in Venice. No need to store food with amazing places to eat on every corner. All in all we enjoyed our stay in Virginia's flat and were very thankful for all her prompt advice and attention when we needed it. We would definitely recommend this place for the location and the reasonable price.

  • Virginia's apartment is cosy and clean with basic amenities, but it has everything that we needed.
    We were glad there was a fan as it could get quite warm during the day.

    The location was splendid!
    Everything was within walking distance - the Rialto and San Marco square, etc.
    and it was also very near to the San Samuele jetty which was goodas we didnt need to lug our luggage far!

    Communication with Virginia was very good. She was prompt and very helpful and polite and she gave us detailed instructions on how to reach her apartment.
    She and her friend were also very nice and made us feel very welcomed!

    We will definitely be back, especially for the superb location!

  • Virginia was a wonderful host! She made some great recommendations and even met us at our stop when we arrived. The apartment was clean, cozy and perfect for two people. The location is very central; it took us very little time to walk to all the major sights. We really enjoyed our stay!

  • We contacted Virginia the night before our arrival in Venice about renting her place, she responded very quickly. Communication with her was great and they were very flexible on the check in considering we had trouble figuring out the Vaporetto. Her place was perfect for my husband, daughter and myself for our one night stay in Venice. Her boyfriend met us and was very nice and helpful. We were able to meet Virginia late when we came back to our room as she was in her Moms store right next door. Be sure to check out the store, her moms mosaic creations are beautiful. Great place to stay, small as stated but perfect, we only needed a place to sleep and shower as we wanted to see as much of Venice as possible. Thanks Virginia, we plan to come back and will remember your place. Thank you!

  • My daughter and I really loved staying here. It was exactly what we were looking for, that is, a central but not touristy location, Virginia's excellent local knowledge about restaurants, shops and sites. The room is small but had everything we needed, great shower, comfortable mattress, fridge for the cold drinks.
    I had no phone reception but there was wifi and the fan was also necessary as it got quite warm.

  • Virginia was very accommodating and easy to reach communicate well with. She was out of town when we arrived but her boyfriend was kind enough to let us in and show us around the flat. The flat is wonderfully furnished, has everything you need, and you cannot beat the location. We loved it!

  • Great stay at the flat. Verginia and Dusciana were great hosts with quick replies from the get go and help with directions to the flat. The flat is in a great location: 1 minute walk from the ferry stop and 10min from Rialto and San Marco in either direction. It was nice to be in a quiter part of town but still close to everything. Flat was comfortable and clean. Two thumbs up!

  • The apartment is great located in a really nice part of venice with great restaurants and shops. It also was clean and Virginia was really nice and allowed us to store our luggage in her shop after the check out until we drove to the airport.

  • Venice was great! The apartment was nice and well located, not far away from the Markus Square. Virginia is a very helpful and nice person and we really enjoyed being there (as far as i remembered after all the Spritzs i got). Thanks!

    Personal recommendation: As we travelled already a few times to Venice, every time we forgot our mosquito shield what definitly would make a difference for a more quiet sleep, not matter where you are located in Venice.

About
HI everyone! my name is Virginia, I live, study and work in Venice with my mother Dusciana, we moved here when I started university, now I'm finishing my last year of Visual Art in the University of this amazing city, I work in Dusciana's shop, she makes beautiful mosaic works and I help her out. We very much love traveling, because it's a way to see how other people live and enjoy life around the world, that's why we decided to start hosting in the Studio flat we have on top of the shop, to give travelers the opportunity to experience Venice fully, staying in a typical cosy Venitian apartment, enjoying the little things that make a city so beautiful.
