Make a self catering apartment in Giudecca, Italy your home away from home

Giudecca is an island lying just to the south of Venice and is an ideal location for exploring this lovely area of Northern Italy. Giudecca is itself made up of eight interconnected islands with wonderful views across to Venice. St Mark’s Square is just five minutes away by vaporetto and Giudecca is one minute’s ride away from Zattere and the Accademia. Offering peace and tranquility at the end of the day, with quiet gardens and squares, yet conveniently close to all the sights of Venice, an apartment in Giudecca is a great holiday option.

Things to do in Giudecca, Italy

The charming village atmosphere around your apartment in Giudecca is due to the traditional way of life which is being pursued all around. Look out for the Zitelle church and close by, the Casa de Maria with large inverted shield-shaped windows and patterned brickwork.

Visit the fishmonger, the local bakery and the wine shop. Wine is sold here by the barrel – if you are staying awhile! Children play in the quiet squares and locals pause to chat. It is a great place to relax and unwind or eat al fresco in one of the local fish restaurants. You can walk the whole length of the north coast of the island to the 19th century Stucky Flour Mill at the far end.

Visit the Santissimo Redentore Church

Considered to be the most successful of architect Palladio’s churches, it was built in thanks for Venice’s deliverance from the great plague which raged in 1575-6. The July Festival connects the church by a chain of boats to St Mark’s Square. The festival ends with a spectacular firework display.

The view across the Giudecca Canal to St Mark’s Basin and the Doge’s Palace has been a favourite view of artists for many years. Enjoy browsing the galleries and choose a watercolour or oil painting of the area as a beautiful reminder of your stay in Giudecca.

Guidecca is an amazing place to stay...you feel as if you are experiencing the "real" Venice with friendly shopkeepers,cute little Italian children playing in the streets and amazing views wherever you look. Try a cocktail at the Cipriani hotel...well worth the hefty price! Also the Hilton Sky bar is great to take in the amazing views of Venice main island. Lillian the owner is super helpful in every way, the next door neighbors are really lovely and even the cleaner is friendly. One of the best places we have ever stayed in and we have stayed in a lot of lovely places!! Thank you Lillian for making my 50th birthday extra special.

Apartment is quiet and well appointed with all you need for a break in Venice. Nicely decorated and equipped. Easy short walk from vaperetto and a small supermarket two minutes walk. Local contact Caterina very helpful and great communication with property owner. Definitely will go back when next in Venice.
