The perfect apartment in the perfect city.Guest comment entered by owner
The perfect apartment in the perfect city.
Our group of 4 enjoyed a most splendid 4 days/3 nights at the Luxury Casa alle Zattere in the Dursoduro section of Venice. The apartment is ideally located on the Giudecca Canal, convenient to shopping, restaurants & the Billa for all your grocery needs. The apartment is spotless, spacious and beautifully furnished & has all the amenities one would need, including a wonderful washer and dryer. It has a fully equipped kitchen (two if you take both apartments) which allows you to cook dinners etc with ease. The views of the canal with all its on-water activity passing in front of us are outrageously beautiful. To look out from the bedroom terrace or living room window as a bigger then life cruise ship motors by is simply amazing. Upon our arrival in Venice, we were met at the vaparetto (water bus) stop by Giorgio and he led us to the apartment while serving as tour guide as we walked; pointing out the best restaurants, shops and stores and the pizzeria with the best pizza. The apartment is well secluded from the hustle and bustle of tourists and you have the feeling of being a real Venetian living in Venice. The vaparetto bus stop, Spirito Santo, is just outside to the left of the front door. The apartment is located such that there is nothing in Venice that is not within walking distance. Giorgio was the perfect host to us, catering to our every need or perceived need. Giorgio attended to all our desires while in Venice, from suggesting restaurants for dinner to securing for us opera tickets at “discounted prices”. Attending the opera while in Venice was a highlight of our trip and the seats for the opera that Giorgio was able to obtain for us, well below the established price, were totally perfect. Giorgio states on his advertisement that if requested, he is able to obtain opera tickets at “discounted prices”, and he delivers on what he says. Most of all, the best aspect of renting the apartment in Venice is Giorgio. From the start when first inquiring about the apartment to our last day there, Giorgio was the superb and the ultimate owner and host. He responded to our inquiry about the apartment and all follow up emails promptly and there were no surprises awaiting us upon our arrival. Giorgio checked on us daily, offered suggestions and addressed any and all concerns that we may have had. Not to mention the hit Giorgio made with the woman in our group. I would highly recommend Casa alle Zattere to all who wish to experience the Italian way of life.

Zattere Water Front Apartment
Zattere Water Front Apartment
I stayed 10 nights at Giorgio's Water Front Apartment with two friends, and enjoyed it immensely. It is spacious, luxurious and has spectacular views on the sunny Zattere over the Guidecca Canal. When you step out onto the balcony Venice, the sunrise, the Redentore Church, and the waterfront life of Venice is before you. There is one large bedroom, and a smaller one at the back. We also used a sofa bed in the living room for a few nights. The apartment has all the amenities one could need. The location in Dorsoduro on the Zattere is unmatched with museums, easy access to San Marco, restaurants, special coffee shops, the Poggi shop, distinguished local artisan shops, Billa grocery store, traghetto, Salute Church, Accademia Bridge and beautiful walks. (The Guggenheim is minutes away) Giorgio is a pleasure, and wants to make one's stay memorable. He arranged tickets for the opera La Traviata at the Fenice. which was a highlight in my five week Italian adventure.

It felt like a homecoming !
My husband, our daughter, and I recently stayed in Giorgio’s delightful Waterfront apartment in Casa alle Zattere for the second time. The purpose of our visit was to view the Biennale art exhibition, and we were fortunate to be able to schedule our visit to coincide with the Festa del Redentore celebration, for which Giorgio’s apartment occupies a front-row seat. Giorgio continues to be a wonderful and gracious host and a source of helpful suggestions about restaurants, shops, and things to do. For example, he suggested early on that we book a table at a popular restaurant just a few steps from the apartment, where we ate a modern version of a traditional Redentore meal prior to viewing the spectacular Redentore fireworks. Both the meal and the fireworks were unforgettable. As with our first visit, Giorgio responds to emails and telephone calls promptly, and is always available to provide help if needed. The apartment offers everything we want when visit Venice: a great location; a clean, luxurious, and comfortable place to relax; a fully equipped kitchen and laundry; and a fantastic view of the Guidecca canal. Now that we think of the apartment as our home away from home, we are eagerly planning our third visit.

A wonderful stay in beautiful Dorsuduro, far from the tourist crowds but convenient to everything. The apartment is beautifully kept, fully outfitted, and the view and water trafffic are by themselves a wonderful part of a Venice stay. Giorgio could not be a more thoughtful landlord, and all of his suggestions were excellent. I want to go back and rent the other part as well and have my whole family join me.

Wonderful stay in Venice
Wonderful stay in Venice
Firstly, Giorgio was very prompt & professional at answering any email queries I had. We very much enjoyed our stay at his apartment. He met us at the vaporetto stop and helped us with our bags to the apartment which is spotlessly clean and very well equipped for our family of seven. The beds are beautifully comfortable after a long days sightseeing. It has a wonderful view of the canal from the terrace and we were amazed by the cruise ships sailing by. The location is great, away from the hustle & bustle but very quick & easy to get to anywhere you want to in Venice. There are fantastic restaurants within an easy walk and we felt safe in the area. I would definitely return to Giorgio's apartment if we ever return to Venice and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

Heaven in Venice !Guest comment entered by owner
Heaven in Venice !
Never had I visited Venice before, nor had I experienced VRBO. The Gods smiled on me the day I found this apartment, so full of the spirit and the soul of Venetian life. Giorgio is a beautiful, gracious and charming host--creating an experience through his place, his eyes, so that as visitors, we may share in the magic of imaging ourselves living here, albeit fleetingly so. I cannot recommend this particular place emphatically enough. The location is near everything one would hope to see in Venice, but also has an feeling of refuge in a sestiere with a sense of calm about it- an architecturally significant gem of a building with a stunning, unobstructed 180 degree vista, completely yours to own during your stay. The balcony hovers over the Canal, -- it feels as if you are on the prow of a boat-I was dumbstruck by the ever changing waterscape view from both the living room and the bedroom. And yes, the last, but maybe the most underrated aspect of this lovely place was its owner, the charming Giorgio. He was the soul of the experience for us. He left us wanting for nothing, Hospitable service in his own truly Italian style. No question left unanswered , his patience, humor and wit made the experience truly so much richer than a faceless hotel might have been. He spent time helping us navigate around, even when I know he was pressed for time. It was like having a trusted , dear friend in this beautiful city. I would go back a thousand times, if I could.

A luxurious retreat overlooking the Guidecca canal, Giorgio's apartment is wonderful! Our family of four felt like local Venetians for the few days we visited. Giorgio was a perfect host, totally professional and friendly, reliable and easy to contact. Can't wait to return!

Wonderful apartment on Zattere
Wonderful apartment on Zattere
The apartment is comfortable, a perfect base for exploring, off the main tourist trail, but providing easy access to all the main sights. Views of the Giudecca from the main living room were beautiful. Aside from the main bedroom, the other two rooms are small and functional, but comfortable too. And Giorgio was a terrific host, invariably helpful and accommodating.

November Stay at the Zattere Apartment
November Stay at the Zattere Apartment
Giorgio: Sorry this took so long to write, but when we got back from Italy we had only a few weeks until Christmas. Our friend Dennis, whom you met, ended up coming back to the states to stay with us over the holidays. Now that everything is settled I can finally write my thoughts. Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful place for all of us to stay in Venice. It was very nice of you to meet us at our vaporetto stop and walk us back to your place. Ahhh the Boardwalk that your place in on….I can’t tell you how many times we walked it to get pizza, coffee, and a few groceries. We walked in in the mornings at 6:30 am and at midnight and never worried about our safety. It is such an amazing city! I was very intrigued by all of the space – living, storage, and outdoor balconies, etc. your apartment(s) provided. There were 5 of us, including 3 teenagers and we never felt cramped. The beds were first rate, big and comfortable! And with the group we had, 3 full bathrooms were truly fantastic! For anyone reading your site, not only are the pictures true to what is there, there is so much more. Although we didn’t need the lower apartment, seeing it was wonderful. If we ever come alone, that one will be for us. Although I believe when we come back we might actually have more ? Another thing I wanted to say to anyone who is reading the reviews is the weather we had in late November was spectacular! We had sun every day, no crowds and very few pigeons in St. Marco’s square! Since we have come back I have mentioned your place to others we know. I’m not sure when they will make it there but I have your information ready in case they do. Thank you for providing such a wonderful place to stay, for helping us with great restaurant suggestions, arranging our cab to the airport and for providing a relaxing, comfortable home away from home. Sincerely, Jean K and family

About the owner: I was born in Venice about 50 years ago. I have traveled in many countries but I'm always happy to come back to Venice, in particular to the Zattere area, because I love to live in this marvellous town, surrounded from the water. I really miss it when I stay away for long periods. I'm not a professional photographer but I have always loved to take pictures since I was a kid. You can have a look to my photo web site (check the URL link to Giorgio Cichellero address). I have partecipated in various workshops with leading Italian photographers as Gianni Berengo Gardin, Lucie Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2008, Franco Fontana and others. Courses and workshops in Milan and Siena held by Canon. I can organize photographic workshops for the apartment guests.
Why the Owner Chose Venice:
Definitely an excellent solution for a memorable stay in Venice. This is the part of Venice that I love even more because although this area is only 10 minutes from Piazza San Marco, which is always full of tourists, Zattere are more calm and always giving different emotions, depending on the day time. This part is always full of light, sun, water, colors .. and joggers. You can see the sun rise early in the morning and the evening sunset. Often, in front of the apartment, behind the Church of the Redeemer, you can observe, and be fascinated, from the rising moon. You can have the best time in Venice on every season of the year. Have a coffer, a delicious ice cream, an appetitive or a full meal (from pizza to the top quality fish restaurants in town). Just relax walking alongside the Giudecca Canal. You'll never forget these emotions. You'll never forget Zattere.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The apartment can be rented as an entire unique apartment with the Terraces area listed at VRBO # 359466. I prepared with great care and love this apartment because one of the next year I will return to live there. Benefit as long as it will still be rented. If you stay in our apartment you can have the best time in Venice on every season of the year. Just walk out on Zattere, have a coffee, an aperitif or a dinner(from pizza to the top quality fish restaurants in town). Do relax walking alongside the Giudecca Canal. 'Sitting in the morning sun. You'll be sitting when the evening comes. Watching the ships roll in And I watch 'em roll away again.' You'll never forget these emotions. You'll never forget Zattere. High level restaurant overlooking the Giudecca canal, among the most beautiful in Venice. Nearby: Guggenheim Museum, Museum Pinault Punta della Dogana, Accademia Galleries. Well-equipped gym - Technogym - 100 meters from the apartment. We can organize - with at least 15 days notice - for the apartment guests (we speak Italian, English and French): boat trips to Venice and the Lagoon, private cooking lessons, short courses and wine tastings. For the tenants of the apartment discounts on well-known restaurants in town and out of Venice. For the evening of the Redentore (Redeemer, July 16, 2011) it's possible - and suggested - to arrange - in advance - dinner of typical Venetian dishes for the evening For the apartments guests, at discounted prices, are available some seats at La Fenice Theater in Venice for all the operas and concerts in the program. Opportunity to purchase tickets for performances at discounted prices. Please email the owner in advance for information. For those who rent the flat for at least 4 days, we offer, as a wellcome gift, the Lonely Planet guide - Edition 2010 - 'Venice & the Veneto', city map included. 10% extra discount on renting rates for all previous guests. Spend some nights in Venice in a place you will never forget.
