We love this property and had stayed in it ten years ago – we love the location, the size, the decor and the terraces! We will most certainly hope to stay there again. Excellent!!

Great location very spacious. Love the terraces.


We did indeed have a wonderful stay at v253 – it is a beautiful and spacious apartment, well kept and stocked and in a “to die for” location. Please give our thanks to the owners and to Federica, who looked after us very well. I do hope we will stay in one of your apartments in future.

B. & N.B.

I am writing to say how much we enjoyed our stay in the apartment in Venice (v253 Accademia Terrazza). It is a beautiful apartment with a wealth of character enhanced by the family photographs and possessions. Its position next the Accademia couldn’t have been better. We were lucky enough to meet the owner and we were well looked after by Frederica on our arrival. We will certainly get back to you to look for accommodation for our next visit to Venice – whenever that will be! Thanks for all you help in making the arrangements,


It is a wonderful spacious easy living property. The location is really perfect. I can not find one thing that I would change. I will return to that location on my next visit to Venice.


Of all the apartments we have ever had, this was by far and away the best. I will be writing the article over the next few months and will surely send you a copy. It’s furnishing, music, location, your representative, ad infinatum. Many thanks to you and your colleagues for the help you gave us along the way. Nobody does it better!


We have just returned from our stay in Venice and once again we had a wonderful time in this spacious, convenient, “acccogliente” and bookish apartment. Every time we stay there we discover new treasures and at the same time it feels like coming home.


We had a most enjoyable time at Accademia Terrazza, as always; the keyholder was very helpful and the maid was indispensable to us and our guests in the apartment. We are considering another visit for three weeks in June next year!


Thank you for all your help with our apartment in Venice. It is quite lovely and we had a good stay there.


The apartment was lovely and extremely well located. We enjoyed it a lot. Many thanks for all your help.


Just to let you know that we had a fantastic holiday in Venice. The apartment was wonderful and situated perfectly for everything. We’ll definitely recommend this to friends.


We had a wonderful stay at Accademia Terrazza and found everything in good order. The apartment is excellent and the location could not be better for the business that brings us to Venice. The weather was also nearly perfect, the Biennale was rewarding, and we look forward to returning to Venice in two years, if not sooner.


We had a lovely sojourn in Venice in April at your apartment at the Accademia Terrazza. The local contact was waiting for us at the vaporetto stop and took us to the apartment, although we knew where it was because another nephew and niece of mine had stayed there in 2008, while my wife and I and others were at the Canal Grande Terrazza. The apartment was spotless and well stocked with necessary items, and we appreciate your thoughtfulness with the beautiful flowers! It was warm enough for us to bask in the sun on one of the terraces! My nephew and niece fell in love with Rome and Venice, and have been asking me when they can go again! Thank you again for your kindness and professionalism.


Just a quick note to say how much I and my family enjoyed our stay at Accademia Terrazza! Thank you for all your help and advice, and the smooth trouble-free organisation of everything from the pre-arranged water-taxi, to allowing us to arrive at the apartment earlier than usual, and leave later in the day on day of departure – which was really helpful and enabled us to get another good few hours of sightseeing in (and what a lot there is to see!).

The apartment was breathtakingly elegant – and yet homely too, whilst being in the most perfect location for exploring the city – close to all the attractions but away from the main crowds, with a real ‘local’ feel as well. It was so much nicer than staying in a hotel, e.g. lovely to be able to relax in the evenings together and put some music on (we are from a family of classical musicians – the owner seems to like it too judging from the books and CDs on the shelves!). We were very lucky with the weather and were able to enjoy several sunny breakfasts out on the terrace – perfect! The whole place had such a wonderful atmosphere and we could not have asked for more.

Thank you once again – and I shall wholeheartedly recommend your company to any friends contemplating a similar visit.


We’ve just returned from a wonderful week staying in this apartment – our first visit to Venice – and it excelled all expectations. Many thanks for all your help and advice. We are saving our pennies for a return visit!


Just a short note to let you know what a lovely time we had in the apartment and how very much we appreciated all that you did to accommodate all of the problems that we faced with before we set out on the trip. Special kudos to the keyholder who was an absolute angel in all things tied to our on again/off again arrival due to the Boston blizzard. She was so very sweet every time we called with updates; and when we saw her standing canalside in the dark at our arrival, we couldn’t believe our eyes. Please tell her how very much we appreciated all of her kindnesses especially during our nightmare traveling period.


Thank you for all your help with arrangements for my family holiday in October in Venice, with Venetian Apartments. We all had a great holiday and they liked the apartment. All our needs were met and the villa was well appointed.


I am writing to tell you what a wonderful time we had in Venice and to thank you. The apartment was lovely and absolutely suited our needs. The apartment was charming, elegant and so comfortable. And the location is absolutely perfect. It could not have been more centrally located for us. We really felt like we were far from the crowds. And we cannot say enough about how helpful and thoughtful the keyholder was. She was an absolute delight. Thank you for all of your help and steering us in the right direction. We had a great time.


We recently returned from our stay in the above apartment which we very much enjoyed. We were wonderfully looked after by the maid and had the pleasure of meeting the owners on our last day. The local contact was most helpful whenever we consulted her for shopping and other advice. We are very seriously considering returning again for two weeks next year.


We are now back in Melbourne and wanted to thank you for arranging such a wonderful apartment for us in Venice. We particularly wanted you to pass on our thanks to the owners of the Accademia Terrazza apartment for allowing us to stay in their “home”. It really is a spectacularly beautiful apartment – the position, the generous spacious rooms, the wonderful light, the two terraces (!), the tasteful and elegant appointments and furnishings, the vast array of kitchen and dining equipment, the astonishing display of Murano glassware. We felt very privileged to be able to stay there and would appreciate you passing on our special thanks to them. Everything worked perfectly for us – the communication and meeting with the local contact, the cleaning, etc. Thank you once again, Joanna – your professional and friendly assistance and advice started us on what was to become one of our most memorable holiday experiences.


We had a wonderful time in Venice. The apartment exceeded our expectations. Please thank the owners for sharing their beautiful library with us.


Just back from our stay in Accademia Terraza 253 in Venice and I had to drop you a line to say how enjoyable it was.The apartment was absolutely fantastic, very well equipped and ideally situated. It was our first time in Venice and most definitely not our last. Could you please pass on our thanks to the owners and let them know that we will surely be back again and will recommend their apartment to anyone who asks.


I walked back into my home this morning and thank you for all the advice and help you gave me way back in January/February when I was dithering between this apartment and another on your books. It was well worth the effort as everyone of us (only four as it turned out) agreed that the whole apartment and its location, comfort, delightful furnishings and all the equipment and the fact that the owner had trusted us with all his/her possessions such as the beautiful glass, books, CDs etc made us feel we were living in ‘our’ home in Venice and not just a rented apartment! Every night we were able to eat on the wonderful back terrace with the mosquito coil lit and the tea-lights. Joanna, it was my dream come true – I thank you for all the patient help you gave me. My thanks to you (and to Federica who I shall write to) for all the help you, personally, gave me. Arriverderci e Grazie mille!


How lovely it was to be back in Venice. 10 years ago we sailed our yacht into Venice and stayed at the San Giorgio Maggiore Yacht Club. That was very special and our stay at Accademia Terrazza this last week has been equally memorable for us. What a great place to celebrate my mother’s 80th birthday with the whole family. Your representative was charming and helpful, and the beautiful fresh flowers and bottle of prosecco made the apartment very welcoming. The apartment was very comfortable and even more spacious than I had expected. The owner’s collections of books, pictures and glassware contributed to a stylish but homely atmosphere. I particularly liked the “secret” en-suite bathroom to the master bedroom, reached through what appears to be a wardrobe! And the terraces were perfect, the front one for breakfast, and the rear one in the afternoons, where we could sit either in the sun or under the shade of the vines – very relaxing. Accademia was a very good location, and having to climb only to the first floor was a great advantage after a long day out or with shopping. Cooking and dining was so convivial that we ate in most evenings. The dining table accommodated 6 people very comfortably and on the occasion of my mother’s actual birthday we were 7, which was still no problem. We enjoyed our daily trips to the Rialto market and surrounding food shops, and we used the Adriatica Co-operative at Piazzale Roma waterfront rather than Billa at Zattere as the vaporetto gave us almost door to door service, as well as another excuse to ride up and down the Grand Canal! I hope that we will have the opportunity to visit Venice again in the near future and if so, we will certainly use Venetian Apartments again, and we will recommend you to all our friends.


Our party of four spent one week recently in this lovely very large, beautifully furnished apartment. The location was convenient and the neighborhood lovely, being right next to the Museum. We enjoyed the entire trip and found the comforts of this apartment magnificent! It is a beautiful place, beautifully furnished with a warm kitchen setting and lovely terrraces, two of them!! Could not have been better, and was even better than expected. We recommend this apartment, as it is bright, and comfortable and makes you feel pampered.


Just a short note to say thank you. We had the most wonderful time in our Venice apartment (Accademia Terrazza). We have stayed in Venice many, many times, but the apartment experience was incredibly homey. The huge bouquet of oriental lilies was an especially nice touch since the spicy sweet scent greeted us every time we arrived home. And what a good experience we had with Venetian Apartments; we will definitely be using you again. Thanks so much.

C. & D.M

Thanks, and we had a wonderful time in this very beautiful place.


Just arrived home from an incredible trip. (Rome 7 nights and Venice 4 nights). The apartment in Venice was unbelievable. What a great city !!!! Everything was perfect. Thank you so much for all your help.


I’d like to report that our stay at Accademia Terraza was excellent. Your representative couldn’t have been more obliging and helpful, and the flat was the best we’ve rented so far – we enjoyed the kitchen so much that I ended up cooking every night. Internet access was a real life-saver as there were all sorts of things everyone needed to monitor even while on holiday. We especially enjoyed looking at the collection of glassware, the domestic odds and ends in the pantry (wheeled shopping basket, ironing board, fan) made life much easier, and we listened to the CDs they left out every evening.


Before the memories of our trip fade I want to tell you that the apartment we rented (v253) was wonderful not only for being so spacious but also for the detail care of everything; not to mention the spectacular neighbourhood!. A real success with all my family, an indelible memory for all of us. I want to thank you for making the whole process of renting it so smooth and easy.


The apartment was incredible!!! It made the perfect trip. The transfer arrangements went flawlessly. My girls want to be adopted by the apartment owners so they can live there. We all had an incredible time. Thank you for your help.
