Affordable apartment with a roof terrace in a handy location,
The Giudecca is a great place to stay when visiting Venice because it's less crowded and its a place where locals live and work. This apartment is in a modern block overlooking the Venice lagoon, not far from the Palanca vaporetto stop. It's on the top floor and has a terrace on the roof, which is lovely for sunbathing, breakfasting and lunch. If you are intending to do lots of cooking, I'd say it's not really equipped for the keen chef, but we ate out most of the time, so that wasn't a problem. It's perfectly good enough for making simple meals which we occasionally did. We've stayed in other apartments in this area which were much more expensive. This apartment is good value. We enjoyed playing the box of jazz CDs!.
We booked this apartment because it is on the Giudecca, close to the heart of Venice, but far enough away to be quiet! The apartment is exactly as described, compact and smart with every possible amenity and the bonus of a roof terrace to enjoy sunsets and views over the lagoon. Elena, the owner could not have been more helpful, replying promptly to email enquiries and booking us a table at La Palanca, so that we could enjoy a meal and watch the fabulous fireworks at Redentore. We were met by the delightful Claudia as we arrived on the Giudecca, who took us to the apartment and showed us around again offering to help in any way she could to make our stay more pleasant.
All in all a wonderful place to celebrate a special birthday!
We are looking forward to booking again some time soon.
Many thanks again for a great place to stay.
Spacious and comfortable
Large, comfortable, pleasant, easy to use. Minor issues: hair dryer not properly functional, dirty towel in storage, but it was a bit of a problem finding that the heavy furniture pictured on the roof terrace was not actually on the roof terrace when I arrived. It is very heavy and had to be carried up the stairs (and back again). Still, this could not change to apartment itself, which was very nice. (As was Claudia) who met us)
Wonderful light filled modern flat with roof terrace on Giudecca
A lovely, comfortable and peaceful flat full of light - ideal for two though the sofa converts to a bed - on the third floor of a very nice architect designed modern block (with lift) looking out to sea on one side on Guidecca in a quiet residential area populated by Venetian families. The flat has everything you need with a small terrace off the large kitchen/living room and a larger roof terrace upstairs with 360 degree views - both filled with plants. Wifi, CD player/CDs and books. Three minutes walk from Palanca Vaporetto stop giving very easy access to Dosoduro and central Venice. En-route to Palanca you walk by a very well stocked Co-op supermarket as well as wonderful restaurants and shops including fish, fruit and veg, bakery, chemist etc on the waterfront. Elena the very helpful owner (who vacates the flat for you to stay) communicated directly with us by email and lovely local woman Claudia who speaks English met us at Palanca to walk to the flat and show us around. Not an issue but we should have thought to take some UK to Italy 3 pin in a row plug adaptors as there was just one in flat! Thanks you we look forward very much to staying again!
Sophisticated apartment on Giudecca, Venice
What a lovely apartment, just perfect for two, in a super location on Giudecca, our favourite place to stay in Venice. Wonderful roof terrace for eating outside and sunbathing. Calm and tranquil right next to the lagoon..and sunny too. Just brilliant. Many thanks.
Great placed to stay!
If you want to stay on the quiet side of Venice, but easy access to the center of Venice, this is the place to stay!
The apartment is of modern construction and roomy with a rooftop garden with views of the Venitian lagoon. It is well decorated and attractive with wood floors.
The bathroom is large by European standards with quality fixtures including a deep full-size bathtub!
The Kitchen is well equipped for cooking, but I never used it with so many great places nearby including Coffe/snack/Restaurants (Called "Bar" in Italy) just a few steps away on the Campo Junghans square and a short walk to the canal walkway near the Palanca vaporetto stop.
The vaporetto service is excellent, they run often with several lines servicing the Palanca stop that will take you to all parts of Venice including St Marks square which is just a few stops away.
The apartment has a radio, but no TV. The WiFi worked flawlessly.
The listing was accurate, there were no surprises. The owner was very good at communicating and everything went very well. I recieved excellent customer service. I would recommend this property to family and friends for their stay in Venice.
