  • Excellent accommodation for two!

    "Everything about the apartment was great for a short 3-night trip to Venice. Located just across the water from San Marco, it provided the perfect distance away from the tourists there (although not too much at this time of year) yet very easy to get to all sites within the area. The apartment was exactly as advertized and we had no difficulty with it whatsoever. We bought 3-day Alilaguna tickets on line before arriving in Venice and found it extremely useful. It allowed us to get to and from the airport as well as all boat trips during the stay.(The Alilaguna stop we used for the apartment was Zitelle, just one stop away from San Marco). The price also included a guided tour of Murano and Burano. The really good thing about Alilaguna is that their boats were never crowded, unlike the more frequent and more locally-used ACTV boats.....would strongly recommend Alilaguna over ACTV even if it is a bit more expensive. The only thing I would suggest for the apartment is to have a bit more light in the bedroom , (e.g. a bright floor lamp)."

  • Lovely!

    "My husband and I stayed here with my parents and this place was perfect for us. The house itself is a lovely mixture of old and new with all the modern conveniences you could need. My husband and I love to cook and find exploring local markets half the fun of a holiday and this place was so well-equipped it made it easy to whip up fantastic meals. The house was spacious, the beds were comfy, and the grounds were lovely. There was plenty of space for us to spread out and relax. The location is in a scenic and quiet area, yet close enough to take day trips to many points of interest. The owners were incredibly helpful both before and during the rental. They provided an extensive list of recommendations for day trips, restaurants, and other helpful hints. They even programmed a GPS with favourites which proved to be invaluable on many occasions. A particularly nice touch was the welcome basket of food which was far more extensive than we expected and a nice touch upon arriving after a long flight. My husband and I have rented at least a dozen houses in nearly as many countries and this one was easily the best appointed. We would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to others."

  • Great Location!!!

    "We had a wonderful time here in Bologna. The apartment was large enough to accommodate the whole family for an extraordinary experience here in Italy. Carla and her husband were most gracious and even had the refrigerator stocked with goodies to get us started. The apartment is located in a perfect place....close to the railroad station, restaurants, and everything Bologna has to offer. Even though we stayed for three weeks, we were not ready to leave. Many, many thanks!!"

  • The accommodations were perfect.

    "My wife and I stayed at La Giulia as part of our honeymoon to Italy. The accommodations were perfect. A little small, but cozy. The spiral staircase was a great addition. The neighborhood was quiet and the surroundings were typical Italy, quaint and colorful. The area was centrally located, within walking distance of everything: 10 minutes to the Vatican, 10 minutes to Piazza Navona (great restaurants and people watching), 30 minutes from the train station. We ate a several rooftop restaurants with to-die-for views: Hotel Relais and Hotel Indigo. A must restaurant is Il Convivo Trioni (expensive but superb). I would definitely recommend Italy Perfect to a friend."
