What a great location to explore Venice, the Veneto Plain, and Lake Garda! We, a family of four, stayed in this apartment mainly for the secured "free" parking. We were given a parking garage for the car, which we left for our days in Venice and Padua. Other than that we took day trips to The Dolomites, Lake Garda, Soave, Asiago and Verona. Our week was full of travel, but it was nice to come back to the apartment to relax. We had all our breakfasts and most of our dinners in the apartment. The kitchen is fully functional, including a dishwasher and washing machine. We did laundry twice with no problems. The kids had their own room and we had ours. For someone who has had back surgery, the beds were firm, which I need. The apartment is larger than most for a city rental, and we all kind of had our own space. We did use the air conditioning a bit since there was a heat wave, but we ended up opening the windows for a cross breeze instead. (Note: Using the air conditioner is an extra cost.) Internet is easy to use. Communication was beyond excellent with Isabella & Sara. So much so, that we were able to have our forgotten clothes sent to us overnight by Sara to our next place. As for our espresso and cappuccinos, there is a restaurant right downstairs (as well as a grocery store). As I said, a perfect location to easily drive into town and out of town, yet close enough to walk further into center city. Thank you, Sara and Isabella! I would highly recommend this apartment!!!
The apartment is very well equipped and furnished tastefully. We stayed here for four days with 2 young children and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Both bedrooms have comfortable beds and ample furniture. The apartment is located within walking distance of most main attractions in Padova. There are also several good restaurants and shops scattered around the apartment block, with a supermarket just a couple of doors away. Isabelle and her daughter Sara made us feel very welcome and were always available on the phone to respond to every query we had. As we spoke no Italian, it was a great help that both were comfortable in English. I would definitely recommend this place and I am sure I will holiday here again in the future.

We stayed in this apartment for six days in January; I came to visit my daughter and son-in-law and two grandchildren. None of us had visited the city before, and we found this apartment through TripAdvisor. It was a perfect location in terms of the city, and provided adequate room and space for three adults and two children.
We spent part of our time in Padova walking around the city, which is very old. We enjoyed Befana, as we were there on the day in January when it is celebrated with a great bonfire in the city square. We also spent part of our time going by train to walled cities nearby. The apartment is within quite easy walking distance of the train station.
The Padova area is beautiful, and I would happily visit there again. This time, however, when going outside Padova, I would choose Montagnana over Cittadella. Montagnana has much more to do, and is much pleasanter to visitors than is the somewhat better known Citadella.
I would recommend this apartment if you are looking for a base for an extended visit to Padova.
