PICTURESQUE PENTHOUSE IN VENICE

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Venice, Veneto 30121, Italy

The Space

Beautiful penthouse in the heart of Venice, situated in a quite and family context,actually three generations of the same family live in the building.
Close to the train station and easy to the public transportation. It is five minutes from Fondamente Nuove, where there is the floating pier of Alilaguna, the water bus to and from the airport and the public boats for the beautiful islands of Burano (famous for the little coloured houses and the precious lace) and Murano (famous for the glass). Very close to the "traghetto" (gondola ferry) to get the Gondola and cross the Grand Canal and get to the typical fish market, like the locals do! In two minutes you can arrive at Strada Nuova, one of the main streets in Venezia, where you can find supermarkets, shops, coffee shops and lovely little restaurants. Very close to Cà d' Oro palace. You can walk to San Marco in 15 minutes.
It can accomodate 4 persons. Made up of a big double bedroom, kitchen, living room with a double sofa bed, bathroom and a big nice roof garden. From it you can enjoy a spectacular view of the red roofs of Venice.
with an extra price is possible to have air conditioning.

  • Gioia was so glamorous and friendly! Seemed like an Italian actress. The apartment is very cute with a lovely view over a canal. It had plenty of heat and hot water, and was sufficiently secluded to avoid the crowds, while still being a short walk to the vaporetto and Rialto. My only comments of caution: the bathtub is very small and easy to get water everywhere, as there is no curtain. The wifi is also weak. We had two iPhones, two iPads, and a computer, and could only get one iPad to connect. All the others failed to connect. This was a big disappointment, but other than that, the apartment was great!

  • We got reply really quickly and everything went so smoothly.
    The apartment was so adorable and cute! Bedroom was huge with 2 separate comfy beds and on livingroom/diningroom was sofabed. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook some food and make coffee.

    The apartment was really well located but still a bit behind the corner so not even New Year eve's celebrations didn't disturb us!

    I recommend this place!

  • Really nice apartment very well located (for us indead), in a quite place, very near to the Alilaguna linea Blu (direct boat with the airport) and not too far from everything. The apartment was clean, very quite, and the little terrace is a really nice point !
    And by the way the Gioia's contact was perfect.

  • Amazing location, so central yet so quiet. We loved having breakfast on the terrace. You do have to walk up a few flights of stairs to get to the rooftop but it's worth it. Try not to bring as much luggage as we did! The kitchen & bathroom are basic but have all that you need. Gioia was a lovely host & very helpful. Wifi was fast & reliable (esp for Italy). We would love to come back & stay again.

  • Very nice place in Venice !
    The flat is large and comfortable. It has a big rooftop where your can eat when the weather is ok. It is located on a cute square from which you can easily (email hidden)ly neighborhood , full of restaurants, bars, shops…
    For french guests : you have to know that there is neither coffee maker nor toaster ;-)
    And you will have to pay an extra if you want to use the air conditioning (that is almost vital in Venice during summer).

  • The location of the apartment could not be better, very central and walking distance to pretty much everything in Venice but yet super quiet. The apartment itself is very spacious (bigger than it seems in the pictures) and comfortable, the rooftop terrace is a wonderful spot to have breakfast overlooking the roofs or sip a glass of wine after a long day walking around. Wireless internet also works great which is a helpful plus in Italy. Gioia and Navardo were super helpful in welcoming us and making sure we had everything we needed. Everything went very smoothly, would definitely recommend this apartment.

  • What a fantastic stay it was, in Venice and in Gioias apartment right on the top of this nice house. We had our own terrace with a beautiful view over the rooftops of Venice. The apartment was clean and nice. The contact and everything went perfect. The apartment is right in the middle of everything. vaporetos on either side made the connection to the rest of Venice perfect. I would recommend Gioia and her apartment to anyone and would really like to visit Venice in the near future and stay att this apartment.

  • We had a wonderful time staying at the apartment : the sleeping room is very tall and we had everything we needed in the bathroom, the kitchen or the living room. The terrace is very large and has a nice view. We enjoyed having breakfast on the terrace at sunrise (or dinner at sunset) ! A great moment for lovers ;-)
    This apartment is very well located !! 5 minutes to Ca d'oro !! 5 minutes to Billa supermarket and 5 minutes to excellent restaurants !! And the area is very calm and quiet !!
    But the best part is Gioia ! a very nice and kind girl ! She will do her best to make your stay unforgetable ! Thanks a lot Gioia !! Next time we'll be back in Venice, we'll be back at your apartment :-)

    Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour dans cet appartement: la chambre à coucher est très grande et nous avions tout ce dont nous avions besoin dans la salle de bain, la cuisine ou le salon. La terrasse est très grande et a une belle vue. Nous avons apprécié le petit déjeuner sur la terrasse au lever du soleil (ou le dîner au coucher du soleil) ! Un grand moment pour les amoureux ;-)
    Cet appartement est très bien situé ! À 5 minutes de Ca d'oro! À 5 minutes du supermarché Billa et à 5 minutes d'excellents restaurants! Et le quartier est très calme et tranquille!
    Mais le mieux, c'est Gioia! une très jolie et gentille fille! Elle fera de son mieux pour rendre votre séjour inoubliable! Merci beaucoup Gioia ! La prochaine fois que nous serons de retour à Venise, nous reviendrons dans ton appartement :-)

  • Great location and Gioia is a good host. Some things to keep in mind: This is a penthouse so lots of stairs and no lift. Also you cannot stand in the shower. You sort of sit in a tub and use a handheld nozzle. Not great but workable. Only other problem is that the bedsheets did not smell clean. I'm sure I could smell the body odor from the previous renters on our pillows. Not pleasant. However, as I mentioned earlier, the location is great. Also there is a table and chairs on the roof suitable for romantic evening picnics. So some good things to balance the bad.

About
sono Gioia, adoro viaggiare: qualsiasi meta, qualsiasi tipo di viaggio. Quando vado in giro per il mondo mi piace scoprire come vivono gli abitatnti del luogo che visito e per questo quando ospito qualcuno faccio di tutto per aiutarlo a integrarsi con la mia città! Un'altra cosa di cui non posso far a meno è la musica, reggae sopratutto! I'm Gioia, l love travel: all over the world and in every way! When l travel l love to find out how lives the people of the place that l'm visiting, that's why when l accomodate somebody l try my best to integrate my guests with my hometown! One more thing that l need in my life is the music, especially reggae music!
