We had a wonderful stay in Anna and Luigi's flat. It is perfectly located for Biennale visits between Giardini and Arsenale in a peaceful aerea far from the touristic spots. The flat is clean and calm - we felt home directly. Anna was very welcoming the communication was very easy with here. We would come back any time!
Nous étions attendus par Anna qui est d une extrême gentillesse et serviabilité et qui nous a donné de précieux conseils qui ont rendu notre séjour encore plus agréable.
Nous avons été chaleureusement accueillis par Anna qui nous attendait à l'arrêt Arsenale pour nous conduire à l'appartement, et nous le faire visiter. Anna a aussi pris le temps de nous donner quelques conseils pour notre séjour à Venise, qui nous ont été très profitables. Le logement correspondait tout à fait à nos attentes et aux photos disponibles sur le site d'Airbnb: pratique, confortable et joliment décoré. Le quartier est très agréable: rue calme, à proximité d'un charmant petit canal, commerces très proches. Séjour parfait.
We had a wonderful stay at Luigi & Anna's apartment. The communication with Anna was excellent. She met us at the vaporetto stop, which is about 3-4 minutes walk from the apartment. Anna gave us lots of valuable information about Venice and great recommendations for restaurants, places to visit and transportation in Venice. The neighborhood is charming and non-touristy. The apartment is exactly as described - very comfortable, clean and cozy. Plenty of space for 3 people. We hope to be back one day and stay in Anna's wonderful apartment again!
Im Vorfeld gute Kommunikation. Sehr freundlicher Empfang, auch wenn wir uns verspätet hatten und Anna auf uns warten mußte. Im Kühl- und Küchenschrank Vorräte die uns über das Wochenende und die geschlossenen Läden hinweg half. Nettes kleines Haus abseits der Touristenströme in ruhiger Lage. Haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
We had a great stay at this lovely Venice apartment. The neighborhood is perfect -- quiet and away from all of the tourists in San Marco Square yet just a 15 minute walk there along the water. We really enjoyed the main street of the neighborhood with the bakeries, restaurants and stores just a minute from our door.
The apartment easily fit our family of four (our youngest was on a separate bed in our room and our oldest on the pull out couch). Very comfortable. The art on the walls is wonderful and the kitchen was very well stocked. The apartment had everything we needed for a great stay in a magical city.
Anna is a gracious host. She sat with us and explained the city and recommended places to go and things to do. Thank you Anna for everything!
