When it comes to holidays, choosing the right accommodation is indeed the most important decision of all as it would inevitably influence the quality of the holiday. There are basically two options: stay in a hotel/ b&b or rent a holiday flat. In order to choose the right accomodation for your Venetian holiday you should first ask yourself a few questions:

  • How is the group consisted?
  • How much is privacy important to you?
  • What is your budget?
  • How much do you wish to experience the Venetian lifestyle?
  • What amenities and service do you require?

Once you have answered these questions, you are in an excellent position to to chose your holiday rental in Venice.

The fist advantage of holiday rentals is in terms of Price and Space; that is, space is in fact a priority for large groups or families of 4, 5,6 members as everyone could stay under the same roof without spending a fortune. In other words, choosing a Holiday Rental in Venice means having a good time without breaking the pocket.

The second advantage is Privacy. Besides the price, privacy is one of the biggest problem in hotels: something that a holiday home can, on the other hand, guarantee during holidays. By renting a Testa d'Oro holiday home you will have the same freedom and independence that you have at home. Be part of the city! How good it would be to spend the holiday visiting the romantic city of Venice and feeling part of the city and its people!

The third advantage are the Amenities, such us, say, a fully equipped kitchen. Most hotels do not have kitchens, which means you will be forced to go to the restaurant. Having a meal at the restaurant in Venice every day could cost you a significant amount of money which could be otherwise invested in Museums, Churchs, Tours, Galleries and, why not, happy hour. By renting a holiday home you will be able to save the money and re-invest it in activities that ought to be experienced at least once in Venice. No holiday in Venice can be considered complete without having taken a gondola ride along the Grand Canal with a delicious ice cream in hand!

When talking about amenities, people usually do not think about a vacation rental, as the first impression it gives is that of a poorly decorated apartment with some basic - really basic - equipments. However, all the vacation rentals of Testa d'Oro can give you a five star experience in a home. We have at your disposal fully equipped kitchens, nice living areas to relax and watch Netflix, bathrooms with Prija Shampoo and Body Gel and hairdrier, as well as Washing machines.

And what about Service? Testa d'Oro's staff will accompany you through out the whole process, from the booking till the check out, online and on the spot. We will give you all the transfer information, show you what to do and eat in Venice: we do all the hard work so you don't have to.


Location is everything in Venice! 

When choosing a vacation rental in Venice, keep one thing in mind: location, location, location.

The area of San Marco is one of the most iconic, romantic, and antique of Venice. Geographically speaking, the sestiere of San Marco is washed by the Gran Canal. It borders with Castello and Cannaregio. It is then linked to the Sestiere of San Polo by the Rialto bridge and to Dorsoduro by Accademia bridge. 

Therefore, San Marco is the center of Venice; and Rialto is the center of San Marco; and Testa d'Oro Apartments are all located in the center of Rialto! In other words, you can enjoy all the major attractions easily by renting an apartment with Testa d'Oro.

But let us discuss more about geographic. The "Serenissima" is an Island made up of many smaller islands and has 417 bridges that cross over 150 lagoon channels that cut the city far and wide. Of these 417 bridges, no less than 72 are private. Its historic centre is surrounded by water, literally cut in half by The Grand Canal, and crossed by myriads on waterways. No cars - no bycicles - no motorcycles. The public transport cross the famous Grand Canal. There are also connections around the external city lagoon perimeter. Therefore, choosing a location well served by the waterbus/Alilaguna is a priority: less walking around carrying heavy luggage up and down as well as direct transfers. Testa d'Oro Apartmens are all 2- 4 minutes away from the Waterbus line number 1 and 2 as well as the Alilaguna Airport Shuttle

By the same reason, choosing a holiday rental in Venice which is near to supermarkets, traditional shops, boutiques, restaurants and bars will make things so much easier! And what goes beyond Rialto where all Testa d'Oro Apartments are situated? There are 2 Shopping Malls - Coin and Fontego dei Tedeschi- hundreds of stores - either traditional or modern, 2 supermarkets at 3 minutes away (and 2 more at 5-8 minutes away), the fresh fruit and fish market "Mercato di Rialto," takeaways, bars, pubs and restaurants!
