Nice apartment situated in the characteristic quarter of Castello.
Made up of entrance with kitchen, double bedroom and bathroom.
Small but functional, two good architects (family friends) studied it in the detalis in order to exploit every space.
Very close to the public transportation, for this reason it's very easy to arrive from the airport or from the station (it's very convenient being so close to the boat stop in Venice!).
Exactly beside Biennale, you can arrive at San Marc square in 15 minutes with a nice walking along Riva Degli Schiavoni with a wonderful view of Giudecca island and Salute church. Lido island and its beaches are just two boat stops away.
In the nearness you can find super market, bakery, pastry and characteristic restaurants.
The price included sheets, towels and the necessary for the first breakfast, maps and suggestions about Venice.
For me and my housband is a pleasure to accomodate you, make you feel confortable and give you all the suggestions that you need.
We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment.
It was very cool that the host picked us up at the boat station , with a friendly smile like Gioia has.
The apartment is as it looks in the photos, or even better.
It's very nicely renovated and maintained, and it is located in the best area by my point of view, the Castello neighborhood is super charming!
Definitely I recommend you this apartment.
L appartamento è carino e situato in una zona tranquilla, piacevole e turistica. Gioia è gentile e disponibile. Il nostro soggiorno a Venezia è stato nel complesso ottimo. Unici piccoli difetti il letto che è scomodo per una coppia e la doccia che non rimane calda a lungo.
Nice Small Flat in a Nice Neighborhood of Venice ! Gioia is very sympathetic, she wait us half an hour at the boat station. Thanks a lot for the flat (and the umbrella !) ;-)
Gioia is very welcoming and explained us very clearly how to go to the apartment.
The apartment is small but convenient. However the bed was not very good and we were surprised when we saw the bathroom. Indeed, the toilets are at the back of the bathroom, the shower is at the middle of it, and these two parts are only separated by two plastic curtains so when you have a shower the whole bathroom is wet.
The pressure of the shower is very low so it takes a long time to have a shower.
But the location if great and calm, two minutes walk from Giardini vaporetto station and it is approximately a twenty minutes walk from San Marco Piazza.
Everything was clean !
We really liked staying at Gioia's appartment. It's small, but fits 2 persons perfectly. The location is great for visiting the Biennale, but I also would recommend it when you are visiting the city Venice, because it's not in the tourist district and therefore really calm.
We enjoyed our stay in Venice and in Gioias adorable little appartement to the fullest! After picking us up from the boatstation (Giardini - perfect for the Biennale!!) she walked us to the appartement (5 min) and gave us information on where to find the next supermarket, bar etc. Overall the appartement was tidy and clean and provided everything necessary. We had no trouble with the warm water or heating, as she instructed us how and when to use it. Thank you very much Gioia, we hope to see you again in 2 years ;) ciao, kati&anna
Great situation in venize , near transport and shops (Restaurant, shop, bar, market) and not so far from San Marco place. Flat very quit ! Nice welcome of Gioia at our arrival and she allowed us to leave the flat until our departure(17h00, good for lugagge) . However , the bed was not very confortable (problem with springs) , Support of heater was broken (not very pratical) , the plug of boiler was not fixed on the wall correctly (not very safety, moreover the boiler leaks so electrical + water !!! )
nice and cute apartement in a perfect localtion for visiting the biennale. only to take a shower was a challange for my 1.97 m tall husband. but he managed and we had a very plesant stay. comunication with Gioia was perfect. we really can recomment and will be back 2015 for the next Biennale.
great location for visiting biennale, between giardini and arsenale. gioia is a very friendly host who picks you up at the waterbusstop on arrival.
appartment very compact. small for taking shower, so not suitable for big people. very soft bed.
being at ground level, you need to get used to people passing by in the street, esp. early morning (children going to school).
all in all a good experience!
Staying at Gioias place was very nice. Perfect for visiting the Biennale!
Communication with Gioia was easy and pleasant. I can very recommend her place!
