We stayed here for 3 nights and had a truly fantastic time. Maurizia's husband met us at the vaperetto stop, it was raining and he'd kindly brought us umbrellas to walk back to the apartment. He talked to us about Venice on the walk and even introduced us to the owner of a fish restaurant he recommended we visit which I thought was lovely. The apartment itself was really clean and kitted out with everything we needed. There was a selection of breakfast treats and Italian coffee waiting for us, which was re-stocked daily. The apartment is located in a quiet, absolutely stunningly beautiful area of Venice, but within walking distance of the main tourist areas. Just wish we had booked to stay for longer! Thank you Maurizia & your husband for being so lovely and welcoming :-)
We stayed at La colonna gotica for five days and had a wonderful time! Maurizia and her husband responded very quickly to emails. We had to change the time of our arrival a few times as our flight was cancelled, and they were very kind and forthcoming. Maurizia's husband met us at the San Basilio station. The apartment is very nice and clean, and the location is perfect - quiet, yet very close to all sights in beautiful Venice. Thank you very much for wonderful days in Venice!
The hosts were very welcoming, I was met from the ferry and immediately felt at ease. The introduction to the apartment was thorough and it matched the description. The location was perfect for exploring on foot and the area was quiet and attractive. Everything was clean and comfortable. Maurizia was very helpful in providing information to help with my visit and showed me to a great local restaurant for lunch. They checked in with me during my visit and were very accommodating about leaving my bag beyond the check out time to suit my departure for the airport. It was a wonderful visit and I would recommend this apartment.
Nos hôtes Maurizia et Gaetano nous ont très gentiment accueillies. La petite maison correspondait parfaitement aux photos du site et disposait de tout le nécessaire (linge, batterie de cuisine, four micro-onde etc.). Par ailleurs, elle est idéalement située dans le quartier du Dorsoduro, à deux pas du vaporetto, de la supérette Billa et de la fameuse "avenue" ensoleillée des Zattere. Enfin, nos hôtes - discrets mais présents - nous ont dispensé de bons conseils sur les visites à faire et les restaurants typiquement vénitiens à ne pas manquer. Bref, un excellent séjour !
Alles war sehr schön und gemütlich, zentral gelegen, ruhig. Die Gastgeber waren sehr nett. Seher gerne kommen wir wieder!
Very nice appartement in a very interestig non turisty area of Venice, perfect for a couple, very close to waterbus station S.Basilio.
Maurizia and her husband are adorable, she speeks french as well.
Roberto met us at the Vaporreto stop and helped us with our luggage back to the apartment. Venice is magical and this apartment will add to the uniqueness of our visit. The apartment is old and historical, but updated and clean.
The location is great. I was concerned that it was far from the main sites. Venice is small so everything is relatively close anyway. Plus this location is away from the tourist crowds and is very quiet. It is also convenient to the bus and train station. There is a main square with a local feel with very few tourists. There are also a couple of markets close by. The vaporetto stop is a short walk away. We enjoyed riding the vaporetto around and recommend the 24 hour or more pass if you like riding the boats. If not, as mentioned everything is relatively close anyway.
The hosts are close and accessible during your stay. Maurizia made us a taxi reservation for the early morning.
Maurizia and Roberto were very thoughtful and attentive to what we needed. I was worried on two counts. We didn't arrive on time during the first day and we left late on our last day. They didn't make it an issue though to my relief.
Roberto welcomed us at the boat station in St. Basilio and helped us with our luggage. While walking towards their home, he gave tips about the area and Venice, which were very handy. He suggested that we dine at Osteria da Toni and even gave us a list of the food we should try. The food was great and very reasonable.
Roberto and Maurizia shared with us the history of the house and while it is many centuries old was equipped with modern amenities that go well with the place. It was cozy, comfortable and clean. And because it is not around the touristy part of Venice, the place is very quiet at night. The refrigerator was also stacked with juice, jam and bread. They even provided coffee and taught us to use the brewer in the kitchen.
Roberto and Maurizia oriented us about Venice and the generalmdirections. They also provided materials that were really useful in going around the city like what walks to take and what sites to see.
The home is about 20 minutes away from St. Mark's Square but because there are sites along the way it is a good walk. When we told Roberto that we wanted to see churches he recommended a couple and they were on the mark. He also told us where we can get a gondola ride just so we can experience it without spending a fortune.
We were very fortunate to have stayed with Roberto and Maurizia and in the occassions that we chat it was very informative and warm. On the morning of our last day, I saw Roberto and he helped us again with directions on the places we wanted to see.
We weren't able to explore Venice as much as we wanted for we only had a day and a half and we often lingered on the places we liked. I would like to visit Venice again and I plan to stay with them again. I'd definitely recommend their home to my friends and family. To Roberto and Maurizia, thank you so much for hosting us.
Thank you, you have been excellent hosts !!!
Come back soon !!!
