Views on Venice was founded in the late 1990’s when the concept of short term apartment rentals was in its infancy and rarely considered an option by most visitors to the city. As a ‘thirty-something’ Venetian excited by the new business and communication opportunities offered by the internet, I decided to link up with a close childhood friend in creating a partnership which, at the time, was a novelty in Venice.
Our aim was to offer these apartments, as well as those of friends, for rental to an international clientele who’d take pleasure in the comfort, freedom and authenticity of ‘living at home as a Venetian’ rather than merely observing the city from the confines of an anonymous hotel room or suite.
The common denominator then, as now, was to offer ‘something extra’ amidst an already extraordinary city - an added dimension which turns a ‘stay’ into an ‘experience’ and a 'dream' into 'reality'...
...a prestigious or historic location, maybe a ravishing canal view, interiors with personality, perhaps a terrace or a garden...
...memorable apartments suiting a variety of budgets and ranging from bijou studios to delicious Grand Canal palazzi. Apartments we wouldn't hesitate in recommending to our closest friends, all the finest of their kind and each providing a unique and lingering insight into Venice at its best.
Our continuing success, even through the most difficult of economic times, has led to the point where we are now able to operate with the added flexibility which comes from being owners of an increasing number of the 70 plus properties in our rental portfolio.
But it’s not just our insider knowledge, the quality of our apartments and a competitive pricing policy that has led to this success. The exemplary standards of service provided by our friendly, dedicated and multilingual team also continue to foster levels of customer loyalty and satisfaction in which we feel immensely proud - where guests arrive as clients and leave as friends, returning to visit again and again.
Our online booking system is one of the easiest of its kind to use and yet there are real people behind it to make sure everything is clearly and thoroughly explained and handled. If you need assistance with a booking or making the best choice for you, have any special requests or require further information, then do not hesitate to contact us.
Your enjoyment and peace of mind are our top priorities – we’ll meet you upon your arrival in Venice, show you the ins and outs of your apartment and we’re right here - in our central office close to St. Mark's Square - to call if you need a hand.
Hoping you enjoy our website and that we see you soon in ‘La Serenissima’
