Providing a refreshing alternative to the Murano chandeliers and rich brocade fabrics that characterise so many Venice hotels, the Corte di Gabriela is a bright, modern boutique hotel, hidden away down a quiet street within strolling distance of many of Venice’s top sights.


The original terrazzo floors and exquisite ceiling frescoes are still very much in evidence, now complimented by strong primary colours, designer furniture and thoughtful modern touches, including in-room iPads.


There is an attractive lounge area, complete with grand piano, but for most, the highlight is the wisteria-scented walled courtyard – the perfect spot for an al fresco breakfast or evening aperitivo.


The ten bedrooms and suites are individually designed and furnished, incorporating wooden beamed ceilings and other original features into a contemporary décor. The two junior suites– one with a circular bed, the other with a frescoed ceiling and tiny terrace - are worth splashing out on for a special occasion.


Just around the corner from the hotel, there are two self-catering suites (50m²), with kitchen, and one with a small internal courtyard. Just 30m from the Grand Canal and the Sant’Angelo ferry stop, these are ideal for families.


There is no restaurant but the excellent buffet breakfast includes everything from freshly made omelettes and pancakes to sweet and savoury treats.


Venice is a city for walking and the Hotel Corte di Gabriela is close to all the main attractions. Highlights such as the Palazzo Grassi, the Teatro La Fenice, St Mark’s Square and the Rialto are a short walk away. 

The Sant’Angelo ferry stop is just a few steps.

This is the third occasion that Antonio has organised an Italian holiday for me. As it was a Birthday celebration involving a party of 10, the arrangements were complex, involving a villa, guides and attendance at the Palio on July 2nd. Without exception everything went exactly as planned. The recommended villa on the Montestigliano Estate, south west of Siena, was wonderful. Our guide made sure we had a full understanding of the history and culture of the Palio which meant that, with a spectacular view over the Campo from the apartment booked by Antonio, we were able to appreciate the event that much more. We shall certainly be going back to Italy with more

Antonio with his meticulous planning and caring service has been solely responsible for the best Italian holidays we have had. His ability to offer excellent hotel accommodation which provides for every need and requirement is second to none . Hotels that are not main stream , that provide high quality of service in excellent locations are one of Antonio’s strength. It’s great to have a provider that know and understands his market.

July 2018 _________________________________ Have just completed another 10 day holiday arranged by Antonio at Expert to Italy. We went with Antonio's suggestion and spent 2 days at Matera and then the remainder in Pisciotta in the Cilento. Matera was amazing and felt completely different to anywhere else we have been in Italy. We loved Pisciotta and the hotel was wonderful with lovely owners who were great at suggesting things to do. We visited a buffalo farm, a vinyard and tooks boats to isolated coves with lovely clear water. All arrangements were absolutely faultless. We would never have found such lovely places without Antonio! 2016 _________________________________ We have just returned from a fantastic holiday suggested no arranged by ExpertTo Italy. Once again the organisation by Antonio was flawless and everything worked perfectly. We spent 5 nights by lake Maggiore and 3 in Cogne in the Italian Alps. Both hotels and locations were fantastic - particularly the Bellvue in Cogne. Please see trip advisor if interested in the hotels as I will give a more specific review there - I'm not a fanatic reviewer but both really deserve it. We have used this company for the past 5 years and Antonio seems to have a real gift for finding fantastic hotels and matching locations to his clients. I would not usually put the level of trust in anyone to arrange holidays for me that I have with Antonio but he has delivered every time and I can unreservedly recommend his services. Italy is a beautiful country with huge variety - if you describe what you like to Antonio and let him make suggestions then you will not be disappointed. Very definitely 5 stars from me. So - Antonio and team, please keep it up! Jonread more

Antonio delivered more than expected! Our family of four stayed at two beautiful villa's on the Amalfi Coast. Both of the locations were top class. Antonio provided excellent service and was always available if we had questions about the details of our trip. He was easy to work with and we would recommend his services to others traveling to more
