About This Listing
Our apartment is called Camigio1, the name stands for the home of Michele and Giorgia. My husband and I are very keen to this apartment and hope to offer you a memorable stay. We love to travel and we know how disappointing is when a location is not like you expected.... We trust people and love meeting new people from all over the world. We manage only this apartment and it is more a passion than a work. We both have another job ...
The apartment was completely renovated in 2009.
The furniture are of 2010. The house has three bedrooms, 2 doubles and one single with pull-out bed. 2 bathrooms and a kitchen with table and chairs overlooking a small private courtyard, a sort of terrace on the ground floor.
The house is on the ground floor of a building lot of '900 'Venice'. The environment is quiet but not far from shops, bars and restaurants.
The entire apartment can be rented for a maximum of 6 people, including children.
The quoted price is per apartment for 4 people.
In the apartment you will find a fully equipped kitchen with washing machine and a oven.
We provide towels and sheets for shower that are always fresh and clean.
In the kitchen you will also find salt, sugar, coffee, tea, oil and vinegar so you do not have to buy these things and you have them even in a short stay. The water in Venice is good and drinkable but we put a purifying pitcher who takes away the taste of chlorine.
Please contact us for prices and discounts. If your room gets stuck in our calendar you'll get a better price!
We usually require a minimum stay of 3 nights but we can also vary depending on the schedule.
The house is located in the typical district of Santa Croce. With a short walk you reach the lively Campo Santa Margherita that in recent years becomes a meeting place for all young students and Venetians.
The nearest boat stop is San Toma, perfect crossroads to reach Rialto and San Marco.
We want to remember that the house is being restored, but it suffers a little Venice 'of moisture, which is why we have installed air conditioning and heating in every room.

As promised, Michele was there to greet us at the train station and lead us to the apartment. On arrival we were greeted with a beautiful apartment that matched exactly the pictures on the website. The apartment was immaculately clean and located in a beautiful residential part of Venice away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas. Passionate about Venice, Michele spent lots of time marking spots on our map with lovely restaurants, cafes and cake shops to visit. Not once were we disappointed with any of Michele’s suggestions. We even met Michele on the Island of Murano one day where he took us to a glass making factory and had a personal factory tour. If you are intending to visit Venice you must stay at Michele and Giorgia’s apartment. You will not regret it and we will certainly go back and book this apartment again.
La casa è esattamente come presentata nelle foto del sito: spaziosa, luminosa, pulita, molto accogliente e dotata di ogni comfort, proprio come "la tua casa"; eravamo 6 adulti e siamo stati comodissimi. Regina (la collaboratrice di Giorgia e Michele) è venuta a prenderci alla stazione e ci ha accompagnato a casa dove ci ha dato tanti ottimi consigli (seguiti con grande soddisfazione) su cosa vedere, dove mangiare e come muoversi per Venezia. La zona è molto tranquilla e silenziosa, perchè all'interno rispetto ai percorsi turistici, ma centrale e comoda per raggiungere tutto, compreso l'imbarco per il vaporetto. Grazie ancora a Giorgia e Michele per l'ospitalità e per aver reso ancora più speciale il nostro soggiorno veneziano.
We loved our stay in Venice! The apartment was down a really quiet laneway, which we really appreciated. It is very close to the bus and train stations and a close walk to everything! The lovely Anna met us at the bus station and helped us with our luggage to the apartment then sat down with us and a map, circling any places of interest as well as supermarkets and her favourite gelato - we referred to this map constantly, it was so helpful. The apartment is clean and tidy and has a little sunny outdoor area perfect for drying the washing. The view out every window is picture perfect and it was a really lovely gentle introduction to Venice.
My husband, two daughters, and I just returned from a great vacation to Italy, and our stay in Venice was the highlight of our trip.
Giorgia and Michele were excellent hosts. I had excellent communication with Giorgia from the time I booked the reservation and throughout our stay.
Michele met us at the Piazzale Roma right on time and made us feel very welcome. My daughter loved walking his dog back to the apartment. (The dogs didn't stay with us). He spent time with us to get us settled in and to give us restaurant suggestions.
The apartment was exactly as described. It is in a great location within walking distance to all of the sights. The apartment was exactly as described. It is very clean and spacious, and the kitchen was well equipped. Since our girls were tired from walking all day, we ordered take out and ate dinner in the apartment.
The kids loved having their own bedrooms, and having two bathrooms made bedtime much smoother than it would have been if we had stayed in a hotel.
I highly recommend renting this apartment if you are staying in Venice with a family. We had a great experience!
Thank You so so so much!! George and Michele made our stay a very special trip for me and my family! They met us right at the bus station and took care, that we know where to get the best food and drinks in venice. Insidertipps and personal contact make so much more difference.
Additionally the flat is located perfectly in the centre of venice, far from tourists but close to everything you need! It was clean and had enough space for the six of us. Short version: If you can, book it.
Thanks again Giorgia & Michele! Please say hello to your family, including dogs ;)
The hosts were very welcoming - it was especially helpful that Michele met us at the train station and walked us over to the apartment, stopping along the way to pick up some pastry for breakfast! The apartment is a bit tucked away and we likely would have gotten lost on our own. That being said, it's actually a benefit because it's in a quiet location and once you figure out where it is, the location is very easy and convenient. There are some shops, restaurants, and bakeries right around the corner from the apartment. The fun of Venice is exploring all of the various neighborhoods as you wind your way to the main attractions, and this apartment was perfectly situated to do just that. The apartment was exactly as advertised (the hosts have done an excellent job providing such a detailed description) -- 4 of us stayed there and found it to be quite comfortable. While there isn't a "living room" area, the table in the kitchen sat 4 and was sufficient for sitting together and planning out our days -- also there are many travel guide books available in the apartment. The maps and restaurant recommendations were also helpful. The kitchen was stocked, as advertised, with oil, coffee, tea, sugar, etc. That was a very nice feature as many other apartments don't always offer that. Michele took time to explain everything about the apartment when we first arrived. He was also very responsive when we had an issue with the electricity very late one evening. Unfortunately it required a trip to the mainland hardware store on Sunday morning to fix it but Michele took care of it as soon as possible. We just chalk that up to bad luck -- everything else about our stay was great!
Michele was wonderful, meeting my dad and his girlfriend when they arrived in Venice ( 2 days before we got there). Their cellphones didn't work when they arrived in Venice and Michele stayed looking for them in the Piazzale Roma. Once they connected, he took them for drinks While he ran home to get boots so they could navigate the high tide. He carried their bags, too, across the water! He showed the apartment and how to use everything, he made sure they could get in and out of the apartment (testing the keys) gave them a map with recommended locations for gelato (very important!), restaurants, a grocery store, bakeries etc... He went over and above and we will never forget everything he did to make their arrival in Venice smooth. The apartment was in a great location and we enjoyed our stay in Venice!
