Overview

About the property

Sleeps 4, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, lift , 350m to beach, golf course

The Venetian apartment is situated on the island of Venice Lido with pitched-ceilings, exposed wooden beams and a two-tier balcony offering sweeping views of Venice.

The top floor apartment provides an authentic environment for you to live and breathe this unique part of the world. The 1920 building has a fantastic position giving you the best start to your holiday.

All the furniture is in a contemporary style and there is air conditioning in both bedrooms and the lounge.

The living room is large and bright and the floor is a combination of wood, terracotta tiles and paved in a typical Venetian way with polished crushed marble.

One large double bedroom with a queen bed; A second bedroom with twin single beds or can be used as a double bed.

A brand new kitchen has all the necessary conveniences such as dishwasher, microwave, oven, etc. ( I am a chef and run a cooking school in Australia

www.cucinaitaliana.com.au )

There are two balconies, one of the lounge with 270 degree views, the second on the roof with 360 degree views of the ocean, lagoon and Venice, Piazza San Marco.

Close to restaurants (Lido offers 2 of my favourite restaurants), shops and a couple of good supermarkets.

You will be able to wander around the island riding on your bicycle feeling like you left the busy world behind. You may feel like relaxing and doing very little. Our place is just a stone’s throw from Lido’s expansive stretch of beaches so you can enjoy the sun and have a Campari to break the heat. Or you may choose to walk or ride your bicycle and find yourself having lunch at the spectacular art-nouveau hotels, including Hotel Excelsior and Hotel Hungaria.

Why not go for a day trip and discover the real life. Areas such as Chioggia, known as “mini Venice”, and Pellestrina, both islands are well serviced by bus.

Lido is a quick vaporetto ride from Venice - one of the most beautiful cities on earth - but a world away from the hoards of tourists and street vendors who take it over each year. The residential island becomes a refuge for visitors, offering them a chance to relax by the Adriatic and mingle with the locals.

The gentle hub-bub of Lido ramps up during aperitivo hour, when Venetians flock to the bars for a glass of prosecco or a classic spritz and some cicchetti. At the beginning of September each year, the island hits fever pitch as international stars and journalists roll in for the Venice Film Festival.

Lido is best explored by bike, with a hire scheme dotted around the island and plenty of rental shops. Stay at my place and inhale the atmosphere or sign up now to experience my real world!

Beautiful property with fantastic roof terrace which gave an extra special feel to the place.

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing place to stay. Lovely property, fantastic views over to Venice from the roof terrace, also a great place to watch the sunset. Staying on the Lido provided a peaceful and relaxing change to the bustle of Venice whilst being easy to get there. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Thank you!

Absolutely amazing!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I am one of Luciana's students and I booked the apartment through her cooking school.

The apartment is modern, spacious and extremely clean. Two beautiful private terraces and the top terrace you can see the whole San Marco square!

The location is perfect, very close to the town centre and restaurants, and the beach is just few steps away.

Loved every minute of my staying.

Thank you again Luciana and I will see you soon in one of your cooking classes in Sydney!

Lots of love

Adriana

Dream Villa with a view

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful! The apartment has everything, is modern and everything is in great working condition. The balcony and sun deck are simply magnificent; Luciana and her local support were lovely and extremely accommodating; the locals only speak Italian but with a little effort it worked out nicely! Highly recommend it for someone who likes to escape the city and enjoy a dive into the ocean

Lovely apartment in a beautiful 1920's villa

  • 4 of 5

We have recently returned from a week's holiday on the idyllic Lido di Venezia. Usually we stay in an hotel we found a number of years ago. However after deciding on a change discovered Luciana Sampogna's apartment...truly a find. The apartment is on the top floor of a lovely 1920's villa set in an ideal location, 5 minutes walk to the beach in one direction and an easy 15 minute walk to the main vaporetti station in the other. From here it's easy to pop back & forth into Venice.

The apartment has a small living/dining area with a fully equipped kitchen at the other end. All set within the roof space of the building with exposed beams and typical Italian flair.

We did some cooking and ate out other times.

When we dined in it was outside on the roof terrace which has a large dining table.

Above this there is another roof terrace with lounger and chairs....and fantastic panoramic views.

There are plenty of restaurants of various types all within easy walking distance plus a couple of small coffee bars and a well stocked greengrocers just around the corner from the apartment. There is a good supermarket in the centre (approximately 10 to 15 minutes easy walk).

There is a lift to the apartment, however this wasn't operational during our stay.

This wasn't a problem for us but might be for anyone who has a problem with stairs (particularly with the heat).

All in all this was perfect for our stay and we will certainly book it again on our next visit.

Venice Lido is one of the most beautiful islands in Italy and you will certainly fall in love with this charming part of the world.

An aperitivo in the centre of the piazza, a casual walk at the beautiful beach, excellent restaurants in every corner.... I truly believe Venice Lido is the best place to stay so you can enjoy Venice and it is sights at your own pace.
