Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I spent 3 weeks in this lovely place and enjoyed every minute of it. It is perfectly located in a quiet, authentic neighborhood, in walking distance to the station and Piazzale Roma, which is a big help, when you arrive with a lot of luggage. The apartment is spacious, clean, bright and cozy and very well equipped with washing machine, fast Wifi and all the little things you might need. We especially enjoyed having our breakfast in the beautiful loggia with garden view.
    Everything from booking to check out went very smoothly and Francesca was always ready to help. I can definitely recommend this place for short or long stays and hope to return one day.

  • This was our favorite apartment during our stay in Italy. It easily accommodated my husband and myself, along with our two daughters. The garden was gorgeous, and an added bonus with two kids. The apartment was conveniently located - we walked from train station and walked everywhere else in Venice. Only cons: water pressure/hot water was weak and there was no washing machine. But the pleasantness of this apartment and its lovely interior/exterior more than made up for it! We will definitely stay here again!

    Response from Francesca:

    Hello Hillary, I am really sorry you didn't ask me about the washing machine: it is inside the closet in the entrance!
    Thank you for the feedback on the water pressure, I fixed it.

  • Francescas apartment is a "cosy nest with splendid garden view".
    Everything has been clean and perfect. Super accomodation in a quiet area of Venice. Easy access to all sights. Supermarkets and bakery are in the neighborhood or just a few minutes walk.
    All is as (email hidden) to stay in Venice! Highly recommended!

  • We had a very nice stay in Francesca's apartment. Everything went very swift from the booking to the arrival at the apartment. We received very clear instructions on how to get there and found it vey easily. The location is good, not too far from the sights but in a quiet neighborhood, with a supermarket just around the corner. The private garden is magnificent, a real hidden treasure. We didn't really use it, but it must be wonderful if you stay for a longer time in summer. The apartment itself was very cosy. The kitchen and bathroom are not exactly new but everything works fine and it was all very clean. Would absolutely recommend this!

  • The Francesca's apartment is in a great location in Venice near the trains station, which greatly facilitated our arrival and displacements for touring the city. My wife and I stayed in the living room which has a sofa that converts into a comfortable double bed. The two sons were in the bedroom which has two single beds. Near has a good supermarket.The house was clean and the kitchen had some basic foods such as milk, bread, eggs, tea and coffee. Francesca was always helpful with our questions.
    Thank you Francesca.

  • This is a comfortable ground floor flat in a quiet part of Venice., with a double bedroom, sitting/dining room, bathroom and small kitchen. The bed is firm without being too much so and there is a sofa bed in the sitting room.
    The kitchen and bathroom furniture is in some need of refurbishment, although the fridge freezer works well enough. Francesca is very helpful, and kindly lent us some of her saucepans so that we could cook a few meals. However, it would not be easy to prepare anything ambitious with the equipment provided, which is rather old and well used.
    There are three bridges between the bus station and the flat which can be hard work if you have baggage. It might be better to take the vaporetto number 1 or 5.2 to Riva de Blasio and then walk the shorter distance without bridges.
    All in (email hidden) to stay if you want to be away from the centre and tourist dominated areas of Venice. A bakery and two supermarkets are a few minutes away, as well as some variable quality restaurants.

  • Don't hesitate to book Francesca's flat! Francesca is a wonderfully responsive and accommodating host and this home is perfectly located for a visit to Venice: it's a quick and easy walk from the train station and similarly convenient to the center, yet it is in a quiet corner next to a small canal - perfect! The pictures accurately show the flat: it is very clean and perfect for either a couple or a few friends. There is a sizable garden (a rarity in Venice) and amenities include a washing machine/dryer, fast wifi, a compact and very functional kitchen. The beds and sofa bed are all comfortable. Finally, Francesca speaks perfect English and is very knowledgeable about Venice. She will gladly help you get the most out of your visit to this special city.

  • The apartment is great: very well located, walking distance to the train station and piazzale roma, in a not very touristy neighborhood. Very clean and spacious, with a functional kitchen (we cooked dinner every night). The sofa bed in the living room and the two single beds in the bedroom are very comfortable. Francesca (email hidden),efficient and responsive. Highly recommended.

Hi! I live in Venice (upstairs the flat I am letting). I am half italian and half brazilian: this mixture makes me a very reflective person AND a tireless dancer. I am an architect and work also as webmaster (for Pimpa, one of the most famous italian children characters). DIY and home decoration are my true passions. I practise pilates, spinning and swimming. I love long walks in the countryside as much as resting hours on a calm beach. I especially like having (email hidden), for a nice handmade meal or even long weekends, to share life not only an evening.
