Guardi apartment is located next to the fascinating Campo San Barnaba in the Dorsoduro District where you can find some of the most picturesque canals and Palazzi
In the Dorsoduro District you can also find interesting local artisan shops and art showcases in every corner, without the "hustle and bustle" that you might expect being so close to the city center. It is also the student area, home to the renowned Venice Ca' Foscari University, therefore welcome more nightlife than the rest of Venice. The general vibe is creative, youthful and relaxed. The district heart is Campo Santa Margherita, only 2 minutes walk from the Leonessa apartment: in the daytime you can find a nice open-air market, children playing, locals walking dogs, shops and cafes; in the evening several trendy or classic bars and restaurants opens till midnight and after.
Chic and minimalist, located at the third floor of a typical Venetian renaissance Palazzo, the Guardi is a stunning apartment on 2 levels with a very picturesque canal view. It has been completely renovated in 2013, maintaining the original structure and exposing the ancient wooden beams that confer warmth to the ambience.
It is composed of a central and spacious room that is connected to the spacious kitchen, two large bedrooms (double or twin, on request), the main bathroom and the living room featuring a balcony and a staircase that leads to the attic floor where the third (and nicest) bedroom with en-suite bathroom is found. The style of the attic level is truly unique: brushed white parquet, original wooden beams and furniture perfectly match with the geometrical lines designed by the steep roof pitches. From every room you can appreciate the nice panoramic view and the brightness, a real rarity.
The Guardi apartment features also a spectacular roof-top terrace, the so called "Altana", where you will enjoy a panoramic view over the city, soaking up the Mediterranean sun. The amenities of this house include high quality bed linens and towels, air conditioning in every room, flat screen satellite TV, DVD player, wireless internet connection, brand new appliances, etc...
This apartment is perfect for 6 guests, but joining the Guardi and the Mantegna apartments, located in the same building, you have the option of accommodating up to 10 guests (combining these two you get the Guardi Premium).

This was a perfect location for our party of 5 adults for a week in Venice. Far enough away from the crowds in St Marks Square but near enough when you decide to to walk there. There are so many sights to see within a reasonable walking distance, there is a supermarket and bread shop fairly close and the whole area makes you feel you are in the real Venice. The apartment was perfect for 5 occupants, maybe not quite so comfy if there were 6. Staff at Truly Venice were very helpful with all our queries including on the day prior to our departure when we asked for a water taxi to take take us to the airport at 7am and it arrived 5 minutes early.January 2018, Martin (UK)
The services and the offering of Truly Venice was simply great! Friendly people : strong and regular communication (prior or arrival), and everything smoothly delivered. The apartment itself is great. Make sure you bring mosquito repellant to enjoy the balcony (and indeed the whole city!). Comfortable, clean , spacious, great for us and our 2 young boys. Additional family members or friends could have stayed easily too. We would very happily return. Thanks Truly Venice!September 2017, Anthony and Megan (UK)
Guardi apartment is a perfect place to stay in Venice if you are reasonably fit. It is comfortable,spotlessly clean and within walking distance of most of the main tourist sites. The only downside is that the apartment is on the third floor with no lift ,so it is not suitable for everybody.May 2016, Jack (UK)
We loved the flat and were very impressed with Truly Venice and the service we received. I visit Venice regularly and certainly plan to use Truly Venice again and recommend it to my friends. All the bestAugust 2017, Sarah (USA)

This was our second time renting with Truly Venice, and our family of five loved the Guardi apartment as our home base. Wonderful apartment with great terrace and nicely appointed. The location is perfect and Lara, who helped us get settled, was fantastic and generous with her help. Highly recommend this apartment, and Truly Venice!June 2017, George (Georgia, USA)
We really appreciate the amazing accommodation we chose with Truly Venice! The house was very clean, perfectly equipped, and with a wounderful terrace. Located in a strategic position close to the Accademia bridge and the area of Dorsoduro, this apartment is perfect to walk around. Finally we received great advice from the representative of trulyvenice that welcomed us. Professional and courteous. All in, all exactely as what we are looking for!April 2017, Laura (Italy)
The Guardi Apartment was perfect! We are a family of 5 (3 teens) and it was totally comfortable for us. It was clean and spacious. The rooftop deck was spectacular. The location was perfect. We were so close to San Barnaba square, which had restaurants, gelato and more. There was plenty to do right near the apartment and walking to St. Mark's and the Rialto was easy. The area right outside of our apartment was also beautiful. Thomas welcomed us at the Vaporetto stop, walked us to the apartment and provided a ton of useful information for our stay. We enjoyed every minute!!! I would definitely stay there again!!April 2017, Christine (USA)
Our stay at the Guardi was fantastic. Truly Venice made sure everything ran smoothly from arrival until departure. They handled the arrangement of water taxi transport both from the airport and to the train station. The taxi's are able to drop you off at a dock just about 1 block length from the apartment door, so you do not have to wheel your luggage very far. Upon arrival we were met and walked to the apartment and shown around, given a map of the area and recommendations. It is in a wonderful neighborhood in Dorsoduro, where you are immersed in Venetian culture, beautiful piazzas, and peaceful canals. The apartment is pristine and kept in fantastic order. There are 3 separate bedrooms, one upstairs with private bath and rooftop terrace, and the other 2 on the main floor. All have their own separate air conditioning units which was nice to keep our group cool. The Accademia bridge is a very quick walk as is the Giudecca Canal where you can take amazing photos. I would highly recommend staying in this area of Venice and this apartment as well.September 2016, The Messina's (USA)
Centrally located in Venice in this modern equipped, clean, well-heated. Apartment with roof terrace view over the rooftops of Venice. The apartment is located in a busy but not overcrowded area, very good restaurants and bars in the immediate vicinity. Booking and check in both friendly and perfect. We will be back.

I'm writing you to say big thank you for all of your staff for our incredible holidays at Guardi apartment in Venice. We had a wonderful time. If one day we decide to come back, definitely it will be Guardi.June 2014, Linas (Lithuania)
We had a fantastic time in the Guardi apartment-it was absolutely perfect and we would love to return one day. It was a special trip to celebrate my husband's 60 th birthday and, although he has visited Venice many times, it was the best place to stay. Thank you so much.August 2014, Pat (United Kingdom)
We had a wonderful time in Venice, made even better by staying in such a gorgeous apartment. We will definitely recommend to all friends and family if they are planning a trip.September 2014, Keely (United Kingdom)
