  • Garden Charme was completely as advertised. The best part about this place is the space. Venice and Italian tourist areas can be quite compressed and busy. Garden Charme is surrounded by brick walls on 3 sides and a canal on the other. Open the gate with your key and there is a tennis court (private) and a garden. What an oasis after a long day of crowds. We had 4 of us, Garden Charme holds 6 and it was palatial. Francesca's mom, Emanuela, was fantastic and an excellent host. No English but not an issue whatsoever. Hand signals, bits of English, Italian and French - whatever - it works. We booked partly because of a chance to interact with her and the Venetian culture and it was well worth it. Easy, easy walk from the train station. We would only book with the Pasti family upon returning.

  • Francesca was probably the most professional person that we dealt with on our European trip. She handled our restaurant reservation. The apartment was great. It was in a quieter section of Venezia which was great for our family. We so enjoyed exploring all the pathways without any worries. Venezia was magical. We will be back and will certainly stay with Francesca and Emanuela again. The apartment is close to a small plaza that has a grocery store, pastry shop, and restaurants. Lovely place, lovely people.

  • Une première expérience avec Airbnb vraiment réussie : un bel appartement spacieux et confortable, une situation sympa, et les conseils de Francesca. Nous avons apprécié les courses faites pour le petit-déjeuner. Merci à la famille Pastri de nous avoir donné l'occasion de partager quelques jours cette belle adresse vénitienne, que nous recommandons à tous !

  • We just returned from a perfect stay at Garden Charme!
    Francesca, and her parents, couldn't have been more helpful. The apartment is in the most perfect (email hidden)ose to everything, but still quaint and quiet. It was enormous and spotless! Loved the homemade jam, bread, coffee, etc...that she left for us. I can't say anything negative about this place. We loved it!

  • The apartment was very clean and spacious for five of us. Once we get to the apartment we were greeted by the owner who showed us all the amenities. It was very quiet and we felt safe. Rialto Bridge which we frequented was less than ten minutes walk.

  • What a wonderful place! if you want a place for four or six people (we had six) i would recommend stop looking at any others and stay here. The location is perfect, right in the heart of Venice but out of the way of the crowds. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted and did not have to worry about catching the busy water buses. Francesca mums lives next door, and is the best host! She does not speak any English, but she gave us recommendations and even booked us into two great restaurants that were exactly what we were looking for. One called Ruffalo 5 minutes away in the square nearby, that has the seats by the canal and another called Madonna, which is just superb. These are noted in the information book within the house. The house was well equipped for cooking, and very clean. So pleased we booked it and will book again if ever in Venice.

  • Very nicely and tastefully furnished, clean and spacious apartment in a part of Venice that still feels authentic, facing the only private tennis club in Venice. We did not meet Francesca, but she was very responsive and her mother, Signora Pasti was extremely charming and full of good advice. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to go back. make sure you bring your tennis shoes and attire: apartments guests are allowed to play for a fee in case none of the tennis club members is using the court.
    Overall, a great find

  • Your apartment gave us a home in Venice...making our stay so much more delightful. The guide you recommended, Rosanna, made an invaluable contribution to our understanding of your historic city and our enjoyment of its treasures. Thanks for making arrangements for us when needed; you made our visit hassle-free.

  • This was a great location and such wonderful people that we felt at home immediately. It is exactly as pictured and very comfortable. This was an all girl trip and we felt very safe. We are all ready to go back.
