Giovanni's apartment was perfect for our family of four. It was exceptionally neat and well appointed with everything we needed for our 3 night stay. I was so grateful that Giovanni met us at the water boat station to take us to the apartment. The guidebook and maps he provided were extremely useful. I highly recommend both Giovanni and his beautiful apartment!
Wir wohnten bei Giovanni 4 Nächte und haben uns in seinem Appartement sehr wohl gefühlt. Es ist ausreichend groß für 4 Personen, geschmackvoll eingerichtet und sehr leise. Giovanni hat uns an der Fähre abgeholt und vieles über Venedig und zahlreiche Restaurants erzählt. Wir kommen gerne wieder. Renate und Jürgen
Giovanni was a fantastic host! The apartment is in a quiet neighborhood but in easy walking distance to the major sights. The apartment is very nice, clean and well appointed! It was just perfect for our family of four. Giovanni was very helpful with directions, recommendations and making sure we had everything we needed.
A wonderful place and a wonderful host. Giovanni met us at the vappartto stop and walked us to the apartment - fortunate as it is a short walk if you know where you are going but finding ones way in Venice with all the canals and winding streets is tricky. Then, he walked us 5 minutes away to a lunch place (many places were closed for the rest hour when we arrived) so our tired kids could eat. He was consistently helpful. The apartment was very clean, true to the pictures, and a welcome resting place. Very comfortable for our family of four & close to restaurants and sights but out of the crowds.
We had a wonderful time at Giovanni's flat in Venice. It is perfectly located if you want to experience the true city & escape the crowds. Beautiful, clean & spacious - it was perfect for our family. The kids (11,14) shared a room & we had the master. Easy access to shops & restaurants & a 10 min walk to San Marco. Giovanni was an elegant host. Met us at the vaporetto stop & escorted us back. Great restaurant recommendations & a handy annotated map to help us make the most of our time. Highly recommend!
Great place! Spacious, spotless, and well-located. Giovanni greeted us himself and oriented us to the apartment and the area, complete with a written reference guide and annotated map. Highly recommended! Thank you, Giovanni!
Located in a rather silence and peaceful district, the flat is very comfortable, cosy, welcoming and large enough for a family. We enjoyed staying at this location which is 10 or 15 minutes walk-away distance to the city center, Arsenale, Giardini and San Marco, including several supermarkets nearby. Being always punctual, Giovanni kindly picked us up at the Ospedale ferry station and he accompanied us till home. He is a smiling-faced friend who runs for your help whenever you need. He is always kind and understanding person. We recommend you to discover vicinity first on foot by using the map instead of getting the ferry from Ospedale which lasts longer than walk to get to the center.

For this reason I invite you to admire the beauty of the buildings, canals, churches, but over all to grasp the deep charm of its magical atmosphere, living a few days as authentic Venetians.
I live near the apartment, so I can help you easly for any kind of trouble and also - I hope - to enjoy your stay.

Sono nato a Venezia e vivo da sempre a Venezia. Amo la mia città e mi piacerebbe che tutti la conoscessero e imparassero ad amarla. Per questo invito i miei ospiti a non guardare soltanto i suoi palazzi, i suoi rii, le sue chiese, ma a cogliere nel profondo il fascino della sua magica atmosfera, vivendo alcuni giorni come autentici veneziani.
Vivo nei pressi dell'appartamento, perciò potrò aiutare i miei ospiti in qualsiasi difficoltà dovessero incontrare ed anche, io spero, a godere del loro soggiorno.
La mia lingua madre è l'italiano, ma sono in grado di comunicare anche in inglese, francese e spagnolo.
