A lovely apartment in a nice quite sestiere, perfect for summer with the terraces. Lovely views, great location. Thanks also for your help afterwards in retrieving my bag left in the water-taxi. We’ll be back on the website again before too long…


The apartment was fantastic and I had a great holiday in Venice.


Just to say we had a most fantastic holiday in Venice! The keyholder gave us a wonderful welcome, the apartment was beyond our expectations and your notes were great. In fact your whole service was prompt, low key but full of exactly the information a novice needed. Many thanks.


We had a great stay in Orio. The apartment was just what we needed, and the location was perfect – we liked being in the quieter, more residential part of town, but still easy walking distance to the major sites. Being able to get outside and watch Venice from on high on one of our three terraces was a great treat, and we were out there every day. The process worked very smoothly and the keyholder gave us a great introduction to the apartment and how everything worked.


I would just like to tell you that we had a very pleasant stay in your wonderful apartment with terraces. The reception by your representative was extraordinarily friendly. We hope to be back soon and will recommend your services to all potential Venice travellers that we will come across.


Just returned from our stay in Orio Santa Croce and wanted to say how wonderful it was. Once again VA has done us proud. The apartment was excellent in every way and your office couldn’t have been more helpful or friendly. We spent many an hour relaxing on the terrace – the main problem was deciding which terrace to use! The area is wonderfully peaceful – far from the madding crowd. Once again, the water taxi was its usual prompt and efficient service. There is no better way of entering Venice than standing at the back of a water taxi. Many thanks for all your help and enabling us to have what was probably the best of our nine visits to Venice.


Everything went very smoothly in Venice – the owner was a lovely host. The apartment was glorious – the three terraces really are the selling point, but also the fact that it really does appear to be the owner’s “home” – their art on the walls and books everywhere really added a lot of character.

We would not hesitate to use Venetian Apartments again (and again) – obviously we love Venice and have recommended you to all who care to listen!


Just returned last night. How lovely a city and an apartment. It was the perfect location in a delightful (non-touristy) area of the city with everything we needed right out our door. Also very convenient to the vaporetto.

We loved the spaciousness, light and terraces. The owner, is very charming, and speaks perfect English. Such a nice introduction to our stay.

Thank you for everything. We will highly recommend both your agency and this apartment to anyone seeking accommodation in Venice.

Another wonderful holiday in a really super apartment. The owner was so friendly and welcoming and we very much appreciated the great terraces as it was hot, hot, hot (sitting on the altana felt like a scene from Hitchcocks ‘Rear Window’ with Venice going about its daily business!) It was also such a bonus having the Co-op and bank 2 minutes away and so many lovely restaurants and bars to choose from. Although we love nearly all parts of the city I think this was our favourite so far – very ‘real’ and very beautiful.


I just wanted to thank you for our wonderful week in Orio Santa Croce. The apartment was exceptional, the owner couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful, the local area was delightful and Venice was, well, Venice. Due to illness, we had to cancel our reservation almost exactly a year ago at the very last minute – so it was doubly good to get there at last. We will be back (to the same apartment, we hope)… Meanwhile, we’ll certainly be recommending your company – and your excellent website – to our friends.


We have just returned from a lovely week relaxing at Orio. The beautiful terraces were much used, and were especially welcome having arrived 7 hours later than planned, after being diverted to Slovenia due to an Italian air traffic control strike! Your representative was most helpful and made sure that we got to the local supermarket before it closed, as it would not open again until Monday. Campo San Giacomo dell’Orio is a delightful refuge from the more touristy parts of Venice, with several attractive bars and restaurants – it was sometimes diffifult to tear oneself away to do some sightseeing. This was our 3rd time with VA and certainly won’t be our last. Thanks again.


We enjoyed absolutely every aspect of our stay in Orio Santa Croce. It was everything we were looking for and more. The location is absolutely ideal for travelers who want to experience Venice as a Venetian. The apartment itself is beautiful. We greatly enjoyed the terraces and the very nicely equipped kitchen. Your representative was an absolute delight also. She made us feel right at home with her special touches.

This is our second successful rental experience with Venetian Apartments and we were particularly happy with this apartment. We will certainly be back next year and will also recommend your service to our friends.

Just wanted to let you know that staying at Orio was absolutely delightful. Will definitely make it my first choice whenever I’m in Venice with 3 people or less (two during carnevale – as we need a room just for the costumes!).

The Campo is charming and thankfully mostly free of tourists and the sound of the bells from the about 8 campaniles we could see from our terrace(s) was magical.

Hope to book it in warmer weather as well – so we can have some more of that alfresco eating with the lovely rooftop views.


My husband and I had a wonderful week at Orio. The campo was charming and only a five minute easy walk to San Stae for the vaporetto. Having the supermarket on the campo was a bonus!

I’m very much looking forward to seeing the new brochure, though the internet site is excellent. Thank you again for all your help.
