This is a great opportunity to enjoy Venice in the best possible way, staying in the highest quality accommodation at an amazingly affordable price. These wonderfully situated ground floor apartments (no stairs to deal with) share a garden and feature amazing views across the famous Guidecca Canal with ever changing light reflections across to the magnificent Redentore Church. This location would be hard to beat anywhere in Venice. These holidays are ideal for couples, friends sharing a bedroom or singles and there is lots of space both inside and outside for everyone to either go your own way or occasionally socialise in the company of others. A bit of each may be just perfect. All bedrooms have their own bathroom. (more information on the Accommodation page).

All 3 apartments are on the same site in Dorsoduro, the most sought after location in Venice, situated at the quiet end of a wonderful promenade running along the waters edge with incredible views and surrounded by fascinating and beautiful sights. Most visitors to Venice are day trippers having to enter and leave each day and they often try to fit in too many, often crowded, sights at once which can make for a busy, tiring and frustrating time. When the day visitors have gone you can enjoy a performance of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons in a beautiful Venetian church or stroll along the Grand Canal.

Popular tourist sites such as the Grand Canal, St Marks Square, Accademia Bridge and more are close by as well as quiet areas off the tourist track. Amongst a wealth of options you could visit a museum and workshop of musical instruments, a most unusual bookshop, grand squares, peaceful squares, art galleries, beautiful shops and much more. You will be staying close to ferry points for anywhere in Venice or the islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello.

The holiday will be self catering as the apartments have smart, brand new, fully fitted kitchens and dining areas. Restaurants, cafes and bars, several built out on the lagoon, are nearby where you can get a table by the water with views and it's not as expensive as you may think. Very close is a lovely supermarket and local shops, galleries etc.

It would be a great idea to buy a 7 day vaporetto (water bus) ticket to make the most of your stay.

We will create a WhatsApp group for people who like to socialise or share experiences. For example, go to a concert or restaurant together, a shared gondola ride between 6 is much more affordable.

Flights (included) from Bristol, Gatwick or other UK airports to Venice Marco Polo.

* Flights include the basic flight with hand luggage. If you want extras such as hold luggage, extra legroom, priority boarding etc then this will be added to the total price of the holiday. There is an additional Venice tax of around €20 per person which all visitors are required to pay.

Staying in this standard of accommodation with spectacular views, a great location and a garden usually comes at a premium.

I don't pay to advertise or employ anyone and have few overheads which is how I can make this trip so affordable. I know Venice very well and I do a lot of research to find exactly the right places to stay.

Anyone coming on any of these trips will be paying much less than it would cost if you booked equivalent accommodation through a travel company!
