The location is magnificent and I kept having to pinch myself that we could actually stay on the grand canal itself - and with such a spectacular view. It was hard to tear ourselves away from the window. The apartment is nicely furnished, with everything there for a few days' stay. The only thing that would make it better still would be an oven in the kitchen and some milk in the fridge for our first cup of coffee. Thank you Marco at Red House for the beautiful stay!

The apartment was exactly as described and suited our needs perfectly. The bathrooms were modern and the kitchen well equiped. The beds are not on the soft side but we had a good sleep in them - after hours of walking around beautiful little alleys and hundreds of brigdes! Julian 1 is tucked away in a quiet street with a couple of minutes walk from Rialto & St Mark's square so ideal for people who don't necessarily always want to take the vaporetto to see all the major sights. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby and even a decent little Coop to fill up the fridge. Bruno, who came to pick us up as arranged from the Vaporetto station, was very kind and charming and gave us a lot of excellent tips for the sights & places to eat. He suggested for us to visit Burano island and it was one of the highlights of our trip. Beautiful island not to be missed! Overall we had an excellent stay in Julian 1 and we can fully recommend it to anyone planning to visit Venice.
