With passion and professionality we welcome our guests in our charming holiday rentals since 2004.

Why Sara Smania chose Veneto

When on Holiday, If you love staying in the historical centre and enjoying the experience to know the local life, you will love this accomodation in the heart of Padova, surrounded by Art, History and Culture. All the best sites are within walking distance and you are incredibly close to everything you need during your holiday. So, you don't need a car.

You can get anyplace on foot, strolling along the narrow and ancient streets.

What makes this apartment unique

We think that live in the heart of the old Padua is a wonderful experience.

Just in the nearest Piazza delle Erbe, in front of the house there is the daily market of fruit and vegetable and every day you have the possibility to enjoy the great view of the Piazza and local life that passes through it. At the same time, there are plenty of local bars, coffe shops, restourans and 'Pasticcerie'. Thus you could enjoy the delightful italian coffes and meals relaxing in a typical paduan atmosphere! We are sure you will feel like a 'Padovano' just for a while!

Again, the house is incredibly close, less than 2 minute walk to the monuments and an easy tram ride or walk to the train station.

Special Occasion, Special Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Padua on three occasions, it's one of our favourite places, always different with lots to see and a great base

This time it was to celebrate my partners 50th birthday, so I needed somewhere to stay that would not be forgotten, aspecially as our visit was only three nights and wow, Ca Bimba is that place

From entering the apartment, with the vision of the steps once the door is opened is truly fantastic

Great space, tastefully decorated to suit the property style and wonderful views from the balcony of Piazza dell' Erbe, especially at night, lit up

We all, (our special friend also came), felt so relaxed, without pressures, being able to come and go when you wanted, use of a full size kitchen, great lounge, bedrooms and bathrooms, all so comfortable

The WiFi connection is also really good, however never used much, as fully occupied elsewhere

It's hard to put into words our true thoughts but only to say this is our location and will be visiting again next year, only for longer......

Many thanks to the owners, I & M, very polite and helpful

Perfect Padova

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay in Ca Bimba. We may be addicted to this lively, small city and this perfectly situated apartment. The owners are most friendly and accommodating and have added a fast and dedicated Wi-Fi line for their guests at no additional charge.

The apartment, sits above the energizing and historic Piazza dell'Erbe in the heart of the city's pedestrian zone, is fastidiously clean and very hospitable. Many restaurants and wine bars are within a few minutes of easy, level walking in a very charming and inviting romantic part of this special city. An elevator in the small building means just 6-7 steps into the living room of the apartment itself.

The apartment is located in the historic center of Padova and many of Italy's finest prepared foods and traditional salumi products are within a 5 minute walk from the apartment. For those that enjoy seafood, the variety and freshness are the market standard and many dishes can be brought home with a nice wine for an incredible home meal-just open the doors to the two balconies and serve with a beautiful view of the piazza.

Wonderful, gracious apartment in charming Padova

  • 5 of 5

Location. Location! A gracious, very comfortable apartment in a lively, friendly university city offers all the best charms of Italy: instant access to the delights of 3 beautiful and historic piazze, pedestrian zones, the rich tradition of fresh food & regional specialties, and community. It is exactly as the owners describe, and exceptionally quiet, especially given its balcony fronting the fabulous Piazza del' Erbe. Padova, a non-touristy city on all the major train routes, is an ideal location to explore the Veneto, with Venice just 25 minutes by train and the gorgeous Dolomites just 2 hours by car.

A Perfect location - A Perfect Flat

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough, along with another couple, to take an Italian vacation in September 2013. Our destination was Padova as it seemed unique and was a short distance by train from other interesting northern cities such as Venice, Cittadella, Verona and Florence. The weather was perfect; the city was a good choice – the vacation was memorable.

Probably the most important contributor to the success of this vacation was our fortunate choice to rent a 2 bedroom flat in Padova from Isabella and Francesco which they have named Cà Bimba. The apartment is central to the old city. One only had to walk across the street to experience centuries old structures and artifacts. The proximity to restaurants, cafes, wine bars only added to the enjoyment of being central to Italian, European and world history.

All this being said probably what was most important to enjoying this location was Isabella and Francesco. I cannot begin to express how inviting and helpful they were to making sure we understood the neighbourhood and the apartment. Isabella spent significant time helping us to understand where to locate everything required to make for a good vacation including restaurants, transportation, grocery stores and historical sites.

Our hosts left us with the impression that enjoying our vacation was more important to them than we were simply a customer to rent Cà Bimba. Francesco even gave up his morning to drive us to Venice to catch our return flight to Toronto.

We highly recommend Padova as a destination site when vacationing in northern Italy. But even more so we recommend Isabella and Francesco and their apartment known as Cà Bimba.
