Just wanted to say a huge thank you from me for such a fantastic service we have have had from you and your team at Truly Venice Apartments. It was so well organised from start to finish, including a return water taxi trip (a highlight in itself)! Please can you let the owners know their restaurant recommendations were fantastic and the apartment very beautiful and suited our needs perfectly.
For a party of 8 people needing 5 bedrooms this was perfect. We used the smaller, downstairs apartment mainly as extra bedrooms and the beautiful large sitting room overlooking the canal as our main sitting and dining area. The apartment was immaculately clean, and Emanuale, who was there to meet us on arrival, could not have been more friendly and helpful. Being literally only a few metres, with one small bridge, from one of the vaporetto stops along the grand canal made travelling around extremely easy, which was critical for us as one of the party had walking difficulties.
We have stayed in several apartments belonging to the owners of this apartment. They are all beautifully furnished in a mixture of comfortable contemporary and antique furnishings with superbly equipped kitchens and excellent modern bathrooms. The apartment on the piano nobile is a spacious and gracious apartment. The larger Terrace apartment is huge and light. It is on the top floor of this lovely old building. The building was the dependence (a specific class of building in ancient Venice!) to the Palazzo Moncenigo. Both apartments are very light but warm in the winter and air conditioned in summer. Both apartments have some outside space - the larger Terrace apartment has two terraces one of which is a sun trap and we enjoyed sitting outside in the mornings for coffee in November! There is lift for both apartments
The location of the building and so the apartments is excellent for access to every part of Venice as it is seconds from the San Stae vaparetto stop. The local supermarket is about 5 minutes away and it is 8 minutes walk to the Rialto market and shops. There are excellent reasonably priced restaurants all around. There are also numerous artisan shops from picture framing to clothes as well as lots of practical shops. As there is a real local community in this area of Venice there are many community events (e.g. Live music) that visitors can enjoy too.
The owners make every effort to ensure their guests have a wonderful visit and are truly knowledgeable about their home city and delight in sharing their knowledge.
We are panning our next visit!
We spent 5 nights staying in this fabulous apartment. Fully equipped with every kitchen appliance, extremely comfortable beds, great air con, on a canal and only 2 minutes walk from the San Stae vaparetto stop. We loved everything about the apartment and would highly recommend to anyone wanting to have that true Venetian experience
