It is not a tourist apartment but a family luxury home that is currently leased for short periods..

It does not represent a less expensive alternative to a large suite in a luxury hotel but an opportunity to spoil yourself, surrounded by the beauty of art and nature.

From the front terrace you can watch everyday fantastic sunrises and sunsets.

Definitely an excellent solution for a memorable stay in Venice.

Designed by the famous milanese architect Ignazio Gardella in the late 50s, this building is a rare example of successful acclimatization of modern architecture in the historic heart of the city.

"Perfect in every way"

This delightful 3rd floor apartment is right on the water and has superb views towards Guidecca. The Spirito Santo vaporetto stop is right outside. There is plenty of visual interest in the water traffic passing the windows. The apartment is spacious, beautifully furnished, exceptionally comfortable and has a nice kitchen and two lovely bathrooms. The beds are super-comfortable.

Giorgio the owner could not be more charming and helpful. He speaks perfect English and will assist you with any issue large or small. The area is quiet and away from the main bustle but St Mark's Square is just one vaporetto stop away. There are plenty of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance.

We wouldstrongly recommend this apartment to anyone and would always go back there when visiting Venice...

The property was highly praised in reviews. We expected near perfection and it exceeded our expectations. The apartment was a very comfortable home in a great location. Giorgio was a host rather than a landlord and mad sure we were comfortably situated. He helped us with opera tickets and cooking lessons. It was as if we were insiders in the culture. We have been to Venice may times and this was by far our best and most immersed adventure.

Gelt io sent us to a friend for cooking lessons and this aspect was worth the entire cost for the trip. It was fun and educational and delicious.

We had the front part of the apartment for two of us for a wek and then added. Five members of our family in the back half. The front was a haven . The entire apartment was spacious and allowed for privacy.
Just go do it

"A Beautiful Apartment in Excellent Location ideal for Mobility Impaired!"

My Husband, Adult Daughter, young son, and I stayed in Giogio's apartment in April 2012. I have bad arthritis which makes it necessary to use an electric scooter and walking frame to get around. Not only was Giogio's apartment wonderfully appointed with spacious rooms it had a small lift and absolutely no stairs at all, even from the "street". Located on the lagoon the views are supurb. The furnishings were everything we imagined from an apartment in Venice, and the double glazing means you can shut out the noise if you wish. However I loved throwing open the balcony doors and listening to the sounds of boats travelling along the lagoon. Waking up to the sounds of church bells peeling was simply sublime!
To get around without needing to use those cute humpback bridges with stairs we turned right when leaving the door to the apartment and traveled over two bridges which are ramped. Turning at the church and following the path to the other side of the island (onto the Grand Canal) takes you strait to the Academia Vaparetto stop. From here you can travel to San Marco (St Marks Square) and most other places. By taking this route we completely eliminated stairs. Giogio is a wonderful host, he met us promptly having given us directions to reach the apartment from the port via water taxi. The apartment is very well appointed including wifi, and is not far from a small supermarket (same directions as above but go straight ahead at the church). Small Cafe's were only a short stroll away.
If you are looking for a fantastic apartment look no further than this one! I would go back in a heartbeat and recommend it to anyone without reservation.
