The stairs up to the altana roof terrace are quite steep. There is ample seating and room for sunbathing on the private roof terrace which has sun all day long and into the evening. The terrace is quiet and has panoramic views over the water. Seating and canopy for shade if desired, small table. It is the perfect place to enjoy a drink after a day of sightseeing. There are several bars and very good local restaurants nearby and the neighbourhood is very Venetian with not many tourists. Local shops only 2 minutes away, 3 supermarkets and an excellent local fish market a 10 minute walk. The apartment has a lovely atmosphere, very relaxing and safe with lots of open space, away from the crowds but only 5 minutes from San Marco.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was fabulous...even better than the photographs, especially the roof terrace which we were lucky enough to use every day.

Guidecca is an amazing place to stay...you feel as if you are experiencing the "real" Venice with friendly shopkeepers,cute little Italian children playing in the streets and amazing views wherever you look.

Try a cocktail at the Cipriani hotel...well worth the hefty price! Also the Hilton Sky bar is great to take in the amazing views of Venice main island.

Lillian the owner is super helpful in every way, the next door neighbors are really lovely and even the cleaner is friendly.

One of the best places we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in a lot of lovely places!!

Thank you Lillian for making my 50th birthday extra special.

Owner's Response: I have never written a response to my reviews as I like them to speak for themselves... However, in this case, I was especially touched that my guests took the time to write that they had such a special time and that is very important to me. We all need wonderful memories to draw on in life, especially for momentous birthdays and anniversaries and Venice is such an uplifting place if guests take the time to do something special. A cocktail at the Cipriani or the view from the Hilton Sky bar is the perfect example or some time on the roof terrace just to watch the activity on the lagoon - the traditional rowing, working boat traffic, fishing off the sand bars, sleek taxis going to the luxury hotels, etc. or the grebes diving into the canal. Take time to soak it all in and thank you, Andrea, for writing. Now you are part of the 'family' I hope you will be back soon and I would be most happy to be in touch again. Your are right - our small little development is quite unique in Venice. Heartfelt thanks and Happy Memories Lillian

Fabulous property in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is exactly as advertised -- a beautiful, comfortable respite in a very special part of Venice. Lillian's apartment is sleek and contemporary and has every amenity you will need for your stay. My husband and I were there for a week and were ever so glad we chose Giudecca in preference to a more crowded part of Venice. We became pros on the use of the vaporettos (Venice's mass transit system) after one day and enjoyed them immensely. We had easy connections to Burano, Murano and the other Venetian islands.

The Giudecca apartment is in a closed, secure compound. It is surrounded by lovely, traditional neighborhoods and we loved the ambiance.

We highly recommend this property and look forward to our next stay there.

Charming, well appointed apartment on Guidecca that allows you to access all the best Venice offers.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent five days in Venice, and found the apartment to be a perfect haven. You are a short vaporetto ride to all the sestiere and tourist attractions, yet are able to experience life like a local. We appreciated the ability to leave the tourist packed areas during peak midday crowds, and enjoy a relaxing lunch on Guidecca. The apartment itself is clean and tastefully decorated. It is well stocked with everything you need. There are restaurants, grocery stores, cafe/ pasticcerias all within walking distance of the apartment.

Lillian was extremely helpful and informative. She had resources in the apartment, and made recommendations of events/ attractions. Her organization and attention to detail made it easy to feel at home in the apartment. She was easy to reach when we had questions, and was a joy to communicate with.

We enjoyed our experience tremendously, and would not hesitate to recommend Lillian's lovely apartment to friends and family. We hope to return ourselves in the future!

The Quiet Side of Venice

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this stunning Giudecca apartment overlooking the Laguna Veneta. It was a great place to be based for a visit to Venice as the location was serene and peaceful yet only a short vaporetta ride from the hustle and bustle of the main Venice islands. We enjoyed both morning cups of coffee and evening glasses of wine on the rooftop terrace. Kitchen is very well equipped for those who want to "dine in" and there are also wonderful restaurants on Giudecca as well. The owner, Lillian, gave great recommendations for places to eat as well as the current activities in Venice. Would definitely stay there again in the future!

This modern, colourful and tastefully furnished home is a perfect place to return to after a busy day in Venice. From its well appointed kitchen, its elegant sitting room, well designed bathrooms and a very comfortable bed from which there are breathtaking views.....its perfect in every way. Always peaceful and quiet its in easy reach of excellent places to eat or shop for food.

We look forward to a second visit.
