From “The Travels of Tony Shalhoub, From Paris to Austin”:
Lately, we opt for Airbnb-style apartments, rather than hotels, whenever possible. We were in Venice five years ago, during the Biennale, and the available hotels weren’t what we were looking for. And so we found a site, Views on Venice; they had extraordinary apartments right in the area we wanted to be.

“Live like a local: why a holiday apartment is a great option for a Venice city break”
Venice has its fair share of five-star hotels, but there’s nothing like the simple pleasure of renting an apartment like Ca’ Del Santo, a Views on Venice property in the Castello district.
Views on Venice’s has an 80-strong portfolio of holiday apartments in cosy townhouses and stately palazzos alike. Ca’ Cerchieri Loredan, for instance, occupies a 15th-century villa on the Grand Canal.
If sharing with friends, the costs of staying in an apartment such as C’ Del Pittore in Castello, can be extremely favourable compared with those of a hotel.
“Filippo Gaggia grew up in one of the Grand Canal’s most notable and beautiful buildings, 15th-century Palazzo Loredan dell’Ambasciatore. He still lives there with his family in one of the palazzo’s seven apartments; the rest are available to rent by the night or week through his company, Views on Venice.”

…. “Our base of operations came about thanks to Laurie Jimenez-Westfall who discovered a charming Venetian villa through Views on Venice (viewsonvenice.com) which enables travellers such as ourselves to experience Venetian life as locals even for a short time.
We were fortunate that the villa Laurie selected for us was owned by a wonderful couple—Filippo and Alessandra Gaggia. The Palazzo, situated by the Grand Canal and near the Accademia bridge, was what everyone had in mind—comfortable, spacious, elegant, with the Old World Italian splendour that we imagined.”
