We have just returned from a four night stay in Emanuele and Nicoletta’s wonderful apartment. We are a family of five who all found the accommodation extremely comfortable; the apartment has high, airy ceilings, spacious beds, modern shower rooms and is spotlessly clean. The kitchen is extremely well-equipped, including fresh coffee pods for your morning espressos. The apartment’s location couldn’t have been better for us, just off the Grand Canal, which you can spy from the pretty little balcony, and a short walk from the Rialto Bridge. It is in a quiet side street and is a peaceful haven to return to after a day of sightseeing. The nearby square is a bustling, charming place, perfect for evening strolls and ice creams, while local restaurants are excellent. There is a pizza restaurant literally around the corner, which was perfect for hungry children on our first night. Everything about our Venice experience was perfect and this was largely due to Emanuele’s invaluable advice that he generously took the time to give us on our first day; he pointed out the best places to eat, both for lunch and dinner, and gave us the insider info on the Venetian experience. We cannot recommend it highly enough.
My first visit to Venice!
Since we arrived fairly late we sent one companion ahead to meet the owner to avoid the late arrival surcharge; but he stayed to meet us at the vaporetto stop for the two who arrived later. He was very pleasant & charming. We were a group of 3 women and the apartment was perfect for us. It is in a great location and easily accessible to everything.
The only thing that I would ask, is that the owners change to a washing detergent
that is non scented; for those of us with allergies the scented detergent on all linens is just too much. I removed all the sheets from the bed and used a blanket I brought with me.
This apartment is absolutely amazing and Emanuele and Nicoletta are fantastic hosts.
The apartment is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, comfortable and has a fantastic view over the canal. It is in a great part of Venice and truly everything about it was just perfect!
Emanuele and Nicoletta were great hosts. They gave us amazing restaurant recommendations which we followed to a tee and as a result, every meal we had in Venice was perfect.
My family and I really enjoyed our stay in this apartment and I can't recommend it highly enough!
We stayed at Ca'Pesaro Nobile for 12 nights in October. Mr. Emanuele met us at San Stae Vaporetto stop to help carry our suitcases to the apartment. We were thankful to have his assistance. The apartment was just like the photos portrayed...contemporary, spacious and spotless. Mr. Emanuele spent at least an hour educating us on Venice, the politics, restaurant recommendations and other interesting tidbits of information. He welcomed us with a bottle of Prosecco and other goodies.
During the week Nicoletta arrived with a clothes dryer! It was most appreciated. It should be noted that few Italian rentals have both a washer and dryer. We also enjoyed the Lavassa espresso machine each morning. All appliances worked flawlessly until we decided to turn on all of them at the same time. We blew the circuit which was quickly resolved with a phone call to Nicoletta who told us where to find the main breaker.
The largest bedroom has an expansive wall unit with closets and shelves. The other two bedrooms have dressers and shelves but no hanging closet. If there is any improvement to be made it might be to add a wardrobe with hanging space to one of these rooms. Regardless, we highly recommend this unit and the gracious hospitality of its owners.
booked a water taxi on arrival and dropped off literally at the front door! Beautiful apartment and great location!!! Nicolette the owner met us at the unit and provided some very helpful info on the area. I would definitely book through truly Venice again.
We spent hours and hours trying to select the 'very best' apartment rental in Venice... and I think we nailed it. From the moment we met Emanuele at check in, we knew things were going to be great. He spent a good 1/2 hour going over every possible detail with us, including recommendations for local bars and restaurants. The apartment was perfect for our 3 mid 50's couples. The apartment is very well equipped, beautifully decorated and classy in every way. The location is ideal... close enough to Rialto and St. Mark's, but far enough away from the crowds when you just want a break. The apartment is a 30 second walk to the San Stae vaporetto stop and only a minute or two to restaurants, cafes, bakeries and grocery stores. Our group has travelled throughout Europe in the past and we all agreed... this might be the nicest apartment we've booked. Thanks so much Nicoletta and Emanuele!
After a 25 minute water taxi, we were met directly outside the apartment by Emanuele (the co owner) who was very keen to help us, make sure we were feeling welcome and bestowed his top tips for places to eat, drink and how to enjoy the sights without hassle (on a map and list).
Like most of Venice, the appartment has a rustic feel from the outside and leading to the first floor. Once inside the finish is excellent, contemporary but yet characterful, spotlessly clean and well appointed.
Like most of the reviews already written, we would come back at the drop of a hat given the chance.....and probably will soon!
Thanks Emanuele and Nicolette
Kind regards Chris and family
