It is well-located, comfortably furnished and has a tremendous view.
This is a very special space on Giudecca with charming restaurants nearby on the quay. We enjoy frequenting the neighborhood greengrocers and fish market. We appreciate the help that we get from both Caterina and the London team and look forward to returning.

Probably my favourite place to stay anywhere. It feels like our home from home.This is our second stay at this lovely apartment on Guidecca. We love the location, overlooking the lagoon and away from the crush of tourists in the centre of Venice. It’s easy to get to and from all the museums and galleries etc. the apartment is spacious, light and airy, comfortable, two generous bedrooms, everything works properly. Caterina is efficient and friendly, a mine of information. When we spot her along the fundamental having a coffee with a friend, she always asks how we are so, it makes us feel like we are really living in Venice. It was really hot in Venice this August – 33C, so the air conditioning was a godsend. What more can I say, we think it’s fabulous.
This was my second stay in V243, and I’m sure I’ll be back. Staying on the Guidecca has some significant advantages, particularly if you want to be in a comfortable, modern apartment in a quiet area.Caterina is fantastic, extremely helpful. The apartment is top quality, and in a superb location, especially for those who like peace and quiet. Obviously, your website is second to none.
The apartment was just as advertised, clean, comfortable and in a nice quiet location.
I really enjoyed working with Venetian Apartments as finding a nice place to stay in a foreign country can be a bit overwhelming! I enjoyed looking at the apartment inventory online and responses to inquiries was timely. They arranged for our water taxi directly from the airport to the closest pier where we were met by a representative who escorted us to the apartment, gave us a quick run down and the keys. Refund of security deposit was also within the expected time frame. Thanks Venetian Apartments!
Yet again we had a wonderful week in one of your apartments. This is our 5th. The Judecca site was perfect- looking out to sea with two sun terraces. Meals eaten outside & chilling out after sightseeing. We had a 16yr old with us so the upstairs suite was perfect for her. I loved waking up to the view of the sea. A perfect summer flat away from the hustle & bustle. We’ll be back. Many thanks for providing another perfect home from home.
Just to say that we had another wonderful stay in Judeca Nova Terrazza. Our favourite place in the world! Thank you for organising this again for us.
We have had a wonderful week, because everything was well planned. It was a great pleasure to arrive in Venice with the watertaxi. At our destination our local representative was waiting for us and accompanied us to our apartment. During the whole time she ever was there when we had any problem. On our departure day she gave us the possibilty to leave the luggage to pick up later at the keyholder discretion. The apartment was as brilliant as the description and pictures in the internet and we enjoyed the well designed and well furnished flat very much. I was a bit afraid of booking an apartment in Venice by an agency in London, but everything was well arranged and we would like to thank you once again.
Thank you yet again for a wonderful week on Giudecca at Judecca Nova Terrazza. The new shower room and WC upstairs is an excellent addition – apparently completed about a month ago. We are looking to stay again in September/October this year.
This is the first time we have used Venetian Apartments and we will certainly be making many return visits. All the admin was very efficient and friendly and everything ran like clockwork. Despite our plane being rather late at Marco Polo the taxi was there waiting and the water taxi to Venice was a ride of a lifetime. Before the visit we thought the water taxi was rather pricey but the event itself was amazing and a memory of a lifetime and we’re so pleased we took advantage of the booking. We will never forget zooming towards Venice on a wonderfully warm evening just before sunset and seeing the sun so low behind the magnificent buildings so they all had golden halos. Arriving at Giudecca was another thrill and we finally arrived at our local drop off quay. We were met within minutes and had an easy walk to the apartment. Everything was as shown in the rental description except that the view was far more stunning than we had imagined with a deep red sunset over the lagoon to be replaced every evening with varying colours: plum, orange, purple and deep red. We were lucky enough to have a front row view of a fireworks display over on the Lido on our first evening which aided the G&Ts and the many photos we took. We were so pleased to be on Giudecca and then to zip across to the main part of Venice so quickly. We like avoiding crowds, so greatly enjoyed Dorsoduro with its little cafes and restaurants. The local Coop was very good value and we enjoyed taking the wheelie to the supermarket and enjoying all the small shops on Giudecca. In fact we have fallen in love with the island and will definitely return next year to explore the bits we missed and especially Torcello and Burano. Many thanks to everyone at Venetian Apartments and for replying to our emails even when we were there to sort out a question we had. Great service, many thanks.

As close to heaven as you could get…this beautifully designed, unique apartment is serene, welcoming and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The kitchen is well equipped, the furniture is classy and there is a wonderful selection of books and CDs/DVDs. The panoramic view of the lagoon is breathtaking every time you look at it – it never fails to uplift and inspire. Even at the sunniest times of day there is always some shade on one or other of the two terraces. Giudecca is a refreshing and calm contrast to the bustle of Venice and you can be in the centre in a couple of minutes on the addictive vaporetto. Spent two days bicycling round the Lido – admiring the beautiful homes and swimming and sunbathing on beaches – amazingly it’s only 15 minutes away on vaporetto no. 8! So a holiday here can be city or beach within minutes. Food shopping is a real pleasure – butcher, fishmonger, baker, greengrocer etc., all selling the freshest items in wonderful old-fashioned shops with personal service. Can’t wait to return to Venice and the Judeca Nova Terraza.
We have just spent a fabulous week in the lovely Giudecca apartment v243 Judeca Nova Terrazza.
We go to Venice once or twice a year, but we have never stayed on the Giudecca before. We all loved being there: we particularly appreciated the peace and quiet of the apartment and the southern lagoon, and living amongst local people. Shopping on the Giudecca was a complete pleasure: the fishmonger Gianni was a lovely surprise find (we found him when we set off to Rialto), and very helpfully he gave us the recipe and sold us the ingredients for a wonderful fish stew! We also bought splendid fruit and vegetables at the shop near the Calle del Erbe.
We also (thanks to the Secret Venice book we had with us) found the Thursday morning vegetable market outside the women’s prison, and bought wonderful produce. We also benefitted from the Salumeria and the Co-Op! And the man in the wine shop was VERY helpful (we tried quite a few!).
We also appreciated all the books and music in the apartment: I thought I had all books on Venice but there are one or two wonderful ones in the apartment that I’d never seen: I will now try and get them on Amazon. The apartment was wonderfully comfortable, and the beds the best we have had in an apartment.
We all hope that we can arrange another trip to Giudecca soon: thanks for everything!
Our trip to Giudecca was absolutely wonderful! Thanks for setting it up for us. The apartment really was ideal for us – everything worked well. Thanks again.
Another wonderful two weeks on the Giudecca! We love Venice and the apartment and hope to return many more times.
A wonderful week in Venice. What an amazing apartment! It was so nice to come home to peace and quiet after a hot day in Venice. Giudecca’s restaurants were excellent. Thank you for a great time.
Beautiful apartment and wonderfully restful location inthe midst of the hustle and bustle of tourist Venice. We never tired of watching the boats passing by or sipping cold beer and prosecco from one of the otther of the terraces. Thank you once again.
First time on the Giudecca. Enjoyed the peace and views over the Lagoon. Good range of books in the apartment. We will be back!
We came to Venice with friends to celebrate a 50th birthday and what a celbration it was! The apartment is a calm, cool, beautiful, soul enriching oasis. The breezes and the soft light over the lagoon were heavenly. We appreciated the book and CD collection and the well appointed kitchen. We definitely hope to come back for another stay.
We loved the apartment and will certainly plan to come again. I’ve never had such a completely comfortable and beautiful holiday apartment. I quite agree Giudecca is the place to stay.
A prolonged stay because of the airline crisis – what a place to get stuck in! Beautiful apartment surrounded by wonderful watery views and a constant changing light. It has been a lovely way to renew our relation ship with Venice. Thank you!
My fourth visit to this lovely apartment – it just gets better and better each visit! Lors of campari with freshly squeezed blood oranges – fabulous views of the lagooon and great comfort. The Giudecca us the best place to stay – Palanca is always friendly and full of atmosphere. The crowds are on the other side of the canal! Excellent fish shop as well as the butcher and fruit and vegetable shop. The apartment has everything one needs – good music selection and good reading. It has been another great week.
What a stunning place. Nicely furnished, good kitchen, many good books (which I didn’t have time to read……). And we even had a hot, sunny afternoon on the rooftop terrace! This is what I painted as a result of our Giudecca stay: “Rio Palada” (right behind the house), oil on canvas, 2.00 x 1.25 meters.
We have come to Venice many times, but this was really one of the best holiday we have had! The apartment was perfect. We look forward to coming again.
We found the Giudecca delightfully unspoilt and a pleasure to escape to at the end of a hot, tiring day. Lovely flat, slept very well as beds comfortable. Many thanks.
The apartment is in a wonderful location – we loved the wide view over the lagoon and the ever changing light as well as the seas breezes. Giudecca is a great place to stay – we returned from the bustle of Venice to the peace and quiet of the apartments and enjoyed the coolness and comfort of the lovely sitting room. The view from the waterfront at Zitelle is incomparable. We have particularly appreciated the books, DVDS and CDs as well as the excellent equipment in the kitchen and the sunbeds and the awning on the top terrace. A wonderful stay.
Wonderfully appointed apartment, beautifully situated with stunning views at all times of the day. A short stop from the hustle and bustle of Venice but a tranquil setting. We’ve loved it. We will be back in touch.
We loved staying here on Giudecca and visiting Venice – and your beautiful place with the unforgettable view. Thank you.
I have just returned today (having travelled back from Venice by road as I was in the party towing our boat for the Vogalonga. I just want to say how much we liked the two apartments (v227 and v243). We have not stayed on Giudecca before and we really liked it. The apartments were perfect for what we wanted and everything worked out very well. My wife and I will be visiting Venice again (apart from our already planned and booked trip in September) and next time we will very likely want to stay in one of those apartments.
Veni, Vidi, Vici
WE CAME: via France and Switzerland with boat and trailer from Twickenham Rowing Club.
WE SAW: gale force winds for the 35th Vogalonga
WE CONQUERED: the elements to finish the race in style.
This was a very pleasant base for out adventure and conveniently situated next to Giudecca Boat Club. Many thanks

We arrived on the 24th May and have had a lovely week in Venice. This is the second time I have stayed on Giudecca. I was first here ten years ago and returned now with my children, who are now at university. WE enjoyed the peacefulness and beauty of this island and feel lucky to have had such a wonderful apartment for our visit.
An exceptional nine days in this wonderful apartment, once again! Venice is more beautiful than ever and we were so fortunate with the weather. Many thanks
A very hot week in May but the flat was great, plenty of sea breeze to cool the air. The kitchen is well stocked and the comfy bean bags and beds made it difficult to go out during the day. The Broadband connect is very good and easy to set up. Really enjoyable stay.
Although we knew Venice, the Giudecca was a real discovery. A beautiful, comfortable and quiet flat, quite the antidote to tourist Venice. Having celebrated a ‘special birthday’ with all our family also in Venice, it is a holiday we shall never forget. A sign of just how good our experience here has been is that after a while it really seemed like coming home. We will be back. Thank you again for a perfect holiday.
There are very few places to which you can apply the word perfect. However, the accommodation the view and general ambiance are al stunning and fully deserve that epithet. This is our first visit and we shall surely come again.
Thank you so much for a wonderful apartment. We thoroughly enjoyed its location and exceptional aspect. The lady who gave us the keys etc was charming. We appreciated the extra sheets, towels etc.
I just want to thank you for the fantastic week we spent in your apartment on Giudecca. It is a beautiful apartment, and waking up each morning and walking straight out onto the terrace to gaze at the boats on the lagoon was just bliss. Meanwhile, our children monopolised the upper terrace with its awning and sunbeds. The location is perfect – it could not be more peaceful, yet within 10 minutes one can be in the hustle and bustle of Venice itself. I would recommend it to anyone, and will want to stay there again next year.
Thank you very much for a really enjoyable time at your appartment. It is extremely stylish and comfortable and given the weather (sun,rain,snow, and fog), very cosy indeed with absolutely stunning views.
We had the most wonderful week staying this apartment. Not only was it superbly well appointed, but the sense of perfect peace and the terraces, which are real sun-traps, made this one of the most relaxing stays we’ve ever had in Venice.
