About Scilla Chiesi

I live in Bologna, a city in north central Italy. It is not far from Venice, by train it takes me about 2 hours. I like to travel and see new places and get to know the locals, trying to understand the uses and customs.

Scilla Chiesi purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Scilla Chiesi chose Venice

I chose this property because Venice is a fantastic city and charming. I like to stroll through its narrow streets with water reflecting the buildings. It 'a wonderful place to relax and have fun, full of culture and things to discover.

What makes this apartment unique

My favorite thing about this house is definitely the place where it is located. It is a quiet neighborhood, but very charming. You can find many restaurants and walking at the same time without being overwhelmed by the crowd of people. It lets you see and discover a venice a little different. Despite this, in a short time from here you can reach all major points of interest, either on foot or with the ferry boat (3 minutes). The house is in Venetian style and is treated in detail to accommodate the most people.

gorgeous place

  • 5 of 5

On our recent trip to Italy, my husband, son, and daughter- in- law stayed in 5 different hotels. Ca dei Putti was by far the best accommodation I had arranged for. The photos do not do the apartment justice. The walls are covered with gorgeous fabric, the 2 bathrooms are spacious, esp the master bath. The living area is beautiful. The little kitchen is more than adequate. The rooms are very clean. The windows are large and the ceilings are very high. There are 3 bedrooms even though we needed only was good to know there was an alternative in case the bed was not good in one room, or if maybe the room was not quiet. In fact, the room my son was in did face Calle Lunga San Barnaba and they could hear street noise at night but not enough to move into the back bedroom, but keep this in mind if you need all 3 bedrooms and are disturbed by noise. Scilla met us at the vaporetto stop and had little mini pizzas and a small bottle of asti spumante waiting for us. There is a small washing machine which we used to do about 3 small loads of clothes. The location was just wonderful...kind of out of the way but close to everything. For Sunday Mass we walked 2 short blocks over a canal to Santa Maria dei Carmini, a beautiful church. San Pantaleone is also very close. Hearing the church bells ring throughout the day is just something out of heaven! Unfortunately, San Barnaba doesnt seem to be used as a church anymore....there was a DaVinci machine exhibit in there instead. Ca dei Putti is an incredible value! It was so nice to be in an actual home instead of 2 separate rooms. We hope to return to Venice one day and when we do, I surely hope we can stay at Scilla's beautiful apartment again. By the way, in case you dont know, Putti are the little cherubs you see in many Renaissance paintings! I learned that while reading my book The Pilgrim's Guide to Rome's Principal Churches....highly recommended! Thank you again, Scilla!

Good place, great hostess

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was off the main touristy area but close enough that it made for an easy walk home. The apartment was quiet and very comfortable for our family of 6. The only thing I would improve on are the beds. They were ok in comfort. Scilla is an amazing host. She communicated quickly and frequently. I had the flight from hell, missing my flight, with the rest of the family going ahead. There were lots of hurdles for us but Scilla was there to guide us the entire time. She was amazing. She also picked us up at the ferry stop and walked us to the apartment. Thank you Scilla for all your help. I would highly recommend staying here.

Wonderful memories of our stay in Venice!

  • 5 of 5

This property was wonderful! The apartment was clean, comfortable and in a great location.

We found great restaurants nearby but the whole area was quiet. We had the impression that we were in someone's home.

The steps up to the apartment could be a problem for older people but the apartment was worth it.

The meeting up with Scilla, the owner, went without a problem and she was most accommodating when we needed help with lost luggage. The treats she left for us went down easily and were appreciated.

We have fond memories of our stay there and we would highly recommend this apartment to our friends who are thinking of a stay in Venice.

Gem in Venice

  • 5 of 5

There were 6 of us on our trip and we thoroughly enjoyed our time at this property. The pictures are exact to the apartment - it is filled with antiques, murano glass chandeliers and fully equipped kitchen and pantry. The apartment is only 300 meters from the local vapareto stop - very convenient to all of Venice. Scilla was a delight to work with and very helpful. We would book again without hesitation. There are loads of wonderful restaurants within a block, super fresh fruit stands and a good grocery store close by as well. Very comfortable beds and large rooms with lots of storage.
