Communications

Judeca Nova from Rio Ponte LongoThere is no telephone in the flat. You are advised to use your own mobile phone. The apartment has free wifi. There is an internet shop on the front at Palanca, near the vaporetto stop.

There is a public payphone near the Redentore vaporetto stop. Phone cards can be bought in most tobacconist shops.

Standards

Because of the constant demand and limited supply of accommodation in Venice many hoteliers and owners of self-catering flats have been able to offer sub-standard accommodation for far too long. But the modern visitor deserves, and increasingly expects, a better experience when it comes to accommodation, and this we certainly provide. Our well-equipped and well-located apartment, with air-conditioning and central heating, is an ideal place to stay at any time of the year.

There is no smoking in the apartment, but there is an outside area where smoking is possible.

Your Welcome pack

Welcome packYour welcome pack includes a complimentary bottle of prosecco, the local sparkling wine, for relaxing after that ‘no-frills' flight.

A supply of teabags and a carton of milk can also be found in the kitchen. We know what its like not being able to get a proper English-style cup of tea. 

In case you arrive late we also provide some emergency rations, including pasta and pasta sauce - to tide you over until you can get to the shops or a restaurant. We simply ask you to replace any items that you use from one of the local supermarkets before you leave.


Shopping & Self Catering

Signpost GiudeccaFishmonger GiudeccaThere are two well-stocked supermarkets within three minutes walk of the flat which stock fresh produce from all over Italy as well as a comprehensive range of excellent small shops selling food along the Fondamenta at Palanca. We will send you a map showing their location, as well as that of the local restaurants.

Even if your language skills are limited, a smile and some appropriate hand gestures will get you a long way.

Central Venice also offers you the opportunity to buy fresh food, especially at the famous fish and vegetable markets near the Rialto Bridge.

The apartment has a selection of Venetian and Italian cookery books - all in English.

A Final Clean after you leave.......

.....is included in the price of course. But here is a photo of an intrepid Dyson cleaner looking characteristically nonchalant. For the benefit of non-British guests, who we warmly welcome, a Dyson is a state-of-the-art UK-invented bagless vacuum cleaner. If you feel like some relaxing housework therapy, or you've never had the Dyson experience, then feel free to give it some exercise. As if Venice didn't have more to offer!
