“SUPERB Venice Experience at Lorendan in Dorsoduro, Venice, Italy”

My two week stay in this Home named Lorendan (Dorsoduro, Venice, Italy) was more than I ever anticipated. This three level, 3 bedroom, 2-1/2 bathroom gorgeous garden home was breathtaking. But, beyond that, the exceptional service and attention to detail provided by the rental agents, Truly Venice Apartments, made this adventure a breeze! Since I booked it months in advance.....I would have questions over that time and every time I wrote to Daniela......my emails were answered in less than 24 hours.....and answered well. Right down to having the traditional Venice Shopping Cart waiting for me when I arrived.

My arrival at San Marco Airport went smoothly in spite of the rain & wind and rough Grand Canal ride in my Water Taxi, which they arranged. Upon reaching my neighborhood, I was greeted, at the Taxi stop by Sara, who escorted me and helped with baggage to the home a short distance away. Once I walked in the door, I knew I was home. I had a long list of questions, but before I could even ask them, she had already covered everything.

The home was so Venetian with so much character.....I truly felt I was living in Venice. The kitchen was fully equipped (which was paramount in that I wanted to grocery shop & cook and feel like a resident). The garden was so welcomed....it was large, private....and comfortable and well furnished. I ate dinners out there and had my tea each morning. Although I was traveling alone, I did have some family visit.....my brother and my cousin came after my five precious days alone. Thank goodness I had 3 bedrooms. But, in the end it made it all more special. We found a butcher & shopped for steaks....spent time in the grocery store and all the wonderful fruit and vegetable stands in Santa Margherita....just steps away from the home. A grocery store just a 2 minute walk.....a "mini mart" on my corner that had all the little things you might need.......stationary, make-up, paper goods, kitchen items.....! One night while making a Meat Sauce.....I needed something to secure the Bracciole....voila....they had bamboo skewers.....and it took 5 minutes to go and return!

Cocktails and antipasto in the garden before dinner were a nice time to catch up on our days & just relax & talk.

The neighborhood was ideal.......NOT flooded with tourists, not crowded yet with all the amenities you would want.....cafes, great restaurants, local (non touristy shops of great quality), responsible young college students and above all "neighbors"! Campo San Barnaba was just a few minutes walk away over a narrow canal, Zattere was about a 10 minute or so walk.....and you were on The Giudecca Canal and grand promenade....with again more restaurants & cafes......I spent every few days just walking along there.

WIFI in the home.....excellent! And in Dorsorduro generally free, fast & no password needed.......most places. I was able to get all my Venice Blog work done at home, then even when I was out wandering about.

The only issue, which is not Truly Venice's Problem, but Venice in general....Mosquittos! I had read about it in my research......and the day I arrived I opened every window in the house......my advice, don't do that!!!! Since it was October, I didn't need the windows opened, but my enthusiasm overcame me! In the garden there were some, but the home had these citrinella coils that you light......and that took care of the outdoors! Bottom line....yes they are a problem if they get inside.....but while outdoors.....actually not much of a problem at all.

I rate Truly Venice Apartments a 10.......and Lorendan a 10 as well! I am so looking forward to working with them again.......truly an exceptional experience!
