Francesca's apartment was exactly as described. The apartment was very clean and the bed was really comfortable. The apartment is located very close to the train station (maybe a 5 min walk) so great if you are planning any day trips while in Venice. Francesca made the check in and key exchange very simple and was there to greet us. Also, she had wonderful food recommendations. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone traveling to Venice.

Terrific location where you walk to main vaporetto, train and sights. Wonderful, rustic, cosy apartment where you're living with the locals. Ground floor, no steps!

The greatest things about this listing is the communication (host always replies very soon) and the location is also very good. The apartment is great; however, we had issues with the almost non-existing water pressure and to top it off the shower head did not work either which meant we did not wash our hair in 5 days. Another issue we encountered was spider bites. Also, if you are not a cat lover you may be bothered by the cat sneaking in your room every time he gets a chance, but it did not bothered us. The pillows were very uncomfortable to us. These issues were shared with the host and she said she was going to take care of them.

Great location, close to train station and bus depot, yet tucked away from the crowded tourist areas. A handy supermarket and little coffee shops within 2 mins walk. For the 3 of us, it meant using the day-bed in the lounge which unfortunately was not very comfortable. We had problems with the washing machine, which was resolved by Francesca offering to wash the load in her machine. Water pressure was very low, but I'm learning that it must be a general thing in Venice! You would have to be a cat lover to stay in this place as any opportunity when the door was open, we would have a visit from the owner's friendly cat.

Francesca was there to rescue us when we got a little confused trying to get to her place. We were close, but she came and found us. She is friendly and helpful. The neighborhood is quiet, but there are several restaurants nearby and we liked all of them. There is slso a grocery store very close.

Hi! I live in Venice (upstairs the flat I am letting) with my child and two cats.
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.
