Durch die gemütliche Unterkunft bei Francesca war unser Aufenthalt in Venedig wirklich toll. Wir fühlten uns wie zu Hause, hatten zu dritt (1 Erwachsener und 2 Jugendliche) genügend Platz, uns auch mal vom Treiben in der Stadt zu erholen. Francesca hatte alles super vorbereitet, auch sehr gute Tipps für die Umgebung. Das Apartment war sehr sauber und geschmackvoll eingerichtet und trotz der zentralen Lage eine Oase der Ruhe, vor allem auch mit schönen Loggia und dem Blick ins Grüne. Lage super, alles gut zu Fuß zu erreichen, inklusive Supermarkt um die Ecke.Wir wären gern noch länger als 1 Woche geblieben und kommen gern wieder. Danke, Francesca!
L'appartement est très bien situé au calme, le long d'un très joli et typique canal (le rio marin). La gare et le continent (pour aller à l'éaroport) sont à 5 -10min, et les sites touristiques à environ 15min de marche. Cela fait du bien d'avoir un appartement à proximité des sites touristiques mais loin de la cohue des touristes.
L'appartement est équipé de toutes les commodités nécessaires (le wifi est toutefois un peu lent). Francesca nous a très bien accueilli chez elle et nous a offert des petits gateaux typiques et des oranges dans le frigo. Elle fournit une liste de restaurant/glaciers/bar... dans la ville avec des spécialités vénitiennes. Elle nous a aussi beaucoup aidé avant notre arrivée pour les questions de logistique (plan, bus, aéroport...).
Je recommande vivement cet appartement pour un séjour agréable à Venise. Je reviendrais sans hésitation.
The apartment is very well located in a not very touristy neighborhood, which was very important in July. It is very convenient, clean and very spacious, even the bathroom. The two single beds in the bedroom are very comfortable. The apartment is well designed, calm and quiet and has everything you need for a pleasant stay (except air conditioning, but the fans did the work, too)..
Francesca was a great host. We arrived very late, but we were very warmly welcomed by Valentina, who is caring for the apartment. Francescas derscriptions she sent us before our arrival were very helpful and efficient. We found some food in the kitchen, like coffee, bread, juice and fruit! Also during our stay Francesca was always available per email for questions and responded immediately, which was wonderful. As we needed something we got it immediately and when we complained about the water pressure, it was fixed the same day.
We highly recommend this place and this host. We loved Francesca's apartment and will come back.
Fransesca n'étant pas présente lors de notre séjour, elle avait tout préparé avec une connaissance pour que notre arrivée se passe pour le mieux. L'appartement est fidèle à la description. Propre. Charmant. Parfaitement positionné. Rien à redire. On aimerait y séjourner à nouveau si nous retournons à Venise.
Francesca's apartment was wonderful. It is on the ground floor (2 stairs!) and is inside a tiny courtyard with a private garden. Internal windows open to the garden. Or open one to the outside world to bring The sounds of the little canal inside. She kindly provided some basics in the little kitchen (olive oil, vinegar, salt, sugar, etc.) - enough to allow me to cook with a few simple market purchases (2 markets very close). Good plumbing. I can highly recommend her flat.
Francesca was a great host who really made us feel welcome and made sure that we had everything that we needed. She greeted us personally upon our arrival and was always prompt at communicating or answering questions. The apartment was very comfortable and spacious and easily accommodated two people, with a large bed as well as a sofa bed. The area was quiet yet located very close to the train station and with easy access to nice restaurants and tourist attractions. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a comfortable and cozy nest with a great scenic experience.
I loved Francesca's apartment: the space, the garden, the convenience of the location. The neighborhood was ideal: a wonderful supermarket two minutes away, a breakfast café, a few fine local restaurants, and especially the small residential "campos" within 5 minutes' walk from the apartment. Extra bonus: the magical scent of jasmine from the garden.
About the Host, Francesca
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 friends at my place, for a nice handmade meal or even long weekends, to share life not only an evening.
