Why Ciro Farinelli chose Giudecca
I recommend Giudecca because it is the real Venice, with not tourists and just few minutes far from everywhere in in the City.
I recommend my place in Giudecca because it is the most relaxing and beautiful place in the city.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Lovely house with a beautiful garden. We spent three unforgetable days with our adult children. We choose to have lunch in restaurants while visiting Venice, Murano and Burano. All these locations were easy to reach by the normal busboats. We enjoyed the calm breakfasts and evening dinners at home in the garden and enjoyed the very tastefully decorated house far away from the crowds. Lovely experience on a lovely quite island. A stroll over the island after dinner is a must if you stay there. Walking along the water in the evening one has a very beautiful view of Venice. What a luxury to have all this space in such a busy touristic place as Venice. It felt very much at home away from home. The bottle of Prosecco and the big fruitplatter which our host had ready for us as a welcome surprise were highly appreciated. I hope we will have the opportunity to stay in this lovely house on another occasion in future.
