About this listing
Hello, we are Giorgia and Michael, and this was our home until march 2012 ... This is our first home together, everything was chosen with love and following our own tastes, or the result of our trips. The house consists of a small but well-fitted kitchen with fridge, stove, oven, microwave and everything you need to prepare your dinners. The living room is my favorite part, has 2 windows overlooking a beautiful garden and a red sofa bed where you can relax while watching the moon ... In the bedroom you find a double bed and a huge wardrobe, which is all at your disposal. We will be happy to share with you our space and give you the feeling of real Venetians life.

What a perfect trip and apartment! My girlfriend, daughter and I loved Venice and this perfect flat. We arrived and were met at the train station by Regina (who lives in the same building) who took us directly to the apartment. Located just across the bridge, it was a nice quick walk following a long train ride.
The flat is gorgeous, clean and wonderfully put together. We all enjoyed the great view of the canal outside the windows and the a/c was a blessing as it was over 90 F when we arrived and for the remainder of our stay. The amenities, close market and proximity to great restaurants were a big plus!
The guidebooks and restaurant log were also wonderfully helpful. You must check out "Estro" for dinner or drinks, or both (thank you to whomever made that entry in the log).
On our final night, Michele met us for a drink having just returned from the mountains with the family. He brought along their dogs and we enjoyed meeting and getting to know our host.
Overall, this place and Giorgia and Michele were fantastic! We can't recommend this apartment more! Ciao until our next visit :)
We had a lovely stay. Michele's father, Giuseppe met us at the bus station, which was very kind of him. He took us to our apartment, which was clean and very well presented. The apartment was in a very central location and there was loads of good guide books and ideas of places to go.
The restaurant diary was particularly helpful as was the top 10 guide book.
Giuseppe even saw us on the street and refered a restaurant to us for that evening.
Overall communication was exceptional and the apartment is lovely and the perfect way to start our honeymoon tour of Italy. Thank you so much!
My husband and I spend 3 nights in Venice and stayed at Giorgia and Michele's beautiful apartment. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Michele met us at the train station and walked with us to the apartment (very close distance). He sat down with us and showed us a map of the city and pointed out some GREAT recommendations on placed to eat and things to see. We took his advice and had an amazing stay. The apartment was very clean and spacious. It had great views of a canal with gondolas passing by. The apartment came equipped with everything we needed, including a washing machine. Giorgia and Michele started a restaurant review book which previous guests had filled out. This was very helpful and added a nice touch. We would absolutely recommend this place and hope to stay here again.
Michele picked us up at Piazzale Roma and let us settle even though we arrived early
The neighbourhood was lovely and very central, we could go to many places by foot which was great because the vaporetto in July is overcrowded ! The place was clean and fits the description perfectly we appreciated the AC a lot !! The map Michele gave us was full of his tips (restaurants, supermarkets and places to see) which was helpfull ! Definitely a place to come back to and recommend !
This was the absolute perfect apartment for our trip to Venice. We showed up early, so Michele took us to the cafe downstairs for some juice and pastries. He explained how to get around and gave us so many suggestions for food and things to do. One of my favorite airbnbs! Plus, there was even air conditioning!! Definitely recommend.
Giorgia and Michele's home was the perfect way to end our stay in Italy. After traveling from hotel to hotel, it gave us a sense of home that we had been missing. The apartment is lovely. My mother, sister and I had the perfect amount of space to be comfortable. Giorgia and Michele were also kind enough to provide us with some basic groceries that we were open to use. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and definitely recommend Giorgia and Michele's home to future guests!
