SUPERBLY LOCATED 2 BED 2 BATH FLAT AT ENTRANCE TO ST MARKS SQUARE.

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in San Marco - St Mark Residence, 2 bd 2 ba

Lovely flat with balcony on the Merceria dell' Oralagio sleeps 5

St Mark Residence is a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom comfortable apartment adjacent to San Marco Piazza on the Merceria dell'Oralagio with a balcony in the heart of Venice.

Recently refurbished, it affords the visitor tranquility in the very centre of this exciting and unique city. Listen to Vivaldi as you sip prosecco on the terrace under the watchful eye of St Mark on the glorious domes of the Basilica and relax at the end of a perfect day of sightseeing and exploring the dazzling array of unique attractions that is magical Venice. Enjoy the orchestras in the St Mark's Piazza at nighttime en route to a romantic stroll along the waterfront and gaze at the Laguna.

The two bathrooms allow two couples to share and a fifth guest can be accommodated behind a screen in the living room. Enjoy the many restaurants and bars in the heart of Venice and if you feel like eating in, the compact kitchen (newly installed in 2012) will allow you serve the lovely local produce found in the local shops and markets. Avail of the balcony and eat outside and watch the gunmetal Moors on the Clock Tower keeping time as they have done for centuries! The Merceria dell'Oralagio, our street is an amazing mixture of designer shops, with eyecatching displays showcasing beautiful Italian crafts like the

locally produce Murano Glass. It is the main entrance to the world renowned St Mark's Square and yet has the advantage of peaceful evenings and the chance to enjoy this world Heritage, Unesco protected site leisurely when all the other tourists have left!

Art classes, Italian classes, cultural tours and sightseeing tours are among the many organised trips you can

avail of in Venice where approximately 20 million visitors come annually to marvel at the magic that is Venice.

You can negotiate La Serenissima yourself using an array of useful guidebooks written by others who have

visited and loved Venice before you. The rail links are very good and you can also explore other beautiful Italian

cities like Verona, Padua, Florence, Rome and many many more from here. Venice however has enough beauty

and wonder to keep the average person exploring them for many years and you will find yourself drawn back to

her again and again.

We bought this apartment in 2008 and refurbished it in 2009. Every year since then we have updated or upgraded some aspect of the

apartment. In 2010 we installed a new boiler, in 2012 a new

kitchen and in 2013 WIFI and new airconditioning. We absolutely love spending time here and love the fact that we are

so close to virtually every attraction in Venice. St Mark's Square at nighttime when the main body of tourists have gone home, exhibits a sort of magical surreal quality, its perfect beauty complemented by the various orchestras with musicians from all over the world. I cannot imagine anyone tiring of this unique setting.

Mrs Leonora O'Sullivan purchased this apartment in 2008

The chance of having an apartment so close to the unique World Heritage, Unesco site of St Mark's Square in Venice was a very

special opportunity for us and very rare (we bought it from an Italian business person who, in turn had received it as a family inheritance). It is also comfortable and pleasant to spend time in.

Proximity to St Mark's Square and ease of access to all other

Venetian attractions.

CHARMING, IN A FABULOUS LOCATION!

  • 5 out of 5
We have been to Venice a few time before and never stayed in such a charming apartment. It was spacious and well cared for. This was our last stop on our 3 week vacation. The beds were very comfortable with nice crisp sheets. You can tell that Leonora takes pride in her home. The outside terrace was a fantastic place to sit and have a glass of wine and cheese. The location is steps away from St Marks Square. Everything is walking distance. I can't wait to go back. We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!! Leonora was delightful. She made the transaction easy from beginning to the end. Thanks again!

MY PERFECT STAY IN THIS DELIGHTFUL APARTMENT

  • 5 out of 5
'Superbly located ' truly described this delightful property . I was astonished at the proximity to St. Mark's Square ! Mrs O' Sullivan with her great courtesy and warmth , took great care of me,a single traveller . She gave me several contact numbers should I need them ,and extensive information on places to visit, nearby shops and Restaurants .The apartment while being absolutely pristine, was so welcoming and warm .I felt truly nurtured by it's comfort and decor,with lots to read,and beautiful guide books .The joy of being so high up,is the views over the red roof tops, the Clock Tower, and roof of St.Marks .I was particularly struck by the serenity and peace, yet while out on the balcony, you could hear the gentle buzz of the passer by's. It was a perfect visit, full of delight and I truly hope to return .With best wishes ,from Claire Roche.Ireland.

A WONDERFUL STAY IN ROMANTIC VENICE!

  • 5 out of 5
First of all we would liket to thank Leonora for being so nice, always available when we needed information or suggestions, before our arrival and during our stay. The apartment is exactely as in the pictures, beautiful, clean, spacious, well kept, quiet yet centrally located, and the terrace is a real plus and very difficult to find in Central Venice. The location is spectacular, right behind the Torre dell'Orologio (left side of San Mark Square), 5 minutes from Rialto Bridge, Santa Maria Formosa, The Arsenale (The Biennale), plenty of restaurants around and also supermarkets if one wants to prepare something at home, in the middle of everything but very quiet and private. We went on a romantic gateway to celebrate a birthday and the choice couldn't be better, the apartment gave us the opportunity to visit Venice as locals, having time to explore the less touristic areas as well as the very well known, and loved the city more than ever!

WONDERFUL APT FOR AN UNFORGETTABLE VACATION!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Venice is a beautify city and this apt allowed us to enjoy all the wonders of the city at our door step. The apt was literally right next to St. Marks Square and within walking distance to everything the city had to offer. Furthermore, the apt was clean, modern, and had AC, which made our stay enjoyable. It even had a balcony for us to enjoy our dinner outside. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.

ROOF TOP TERRACE

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful stay, enjoyed everyting about your apartment, especially the roof top terrace, we had every meal we could outside. We discovered the local markets and The Coop, your kitchen had everything we needed. You represented the stairs perfectly in the apartment description and we felt the exercise allowed us all a few more bites of pasta and glasses of wine. I am recommending your apartment to everyone I know who is visiting Venice.

The bottle of wine waiting was awesome - after a glass we headed to the restaurant that Irene (our contact person who was a dear) recommended - a perfect way to start our Venice stay.

Thank you The Olson's and The Mace's from Seattle Area

WE LOVE VENICE AND ST MARK'S RESIDENCE

We love Venice and St Mark's Residence
  • 5 out of 5
We really enjoyed our second stay in this charming, well equipped and comfortable apartment - this time for our daughter's graduation trip. Its perfect location behind San Marco allows easy access to everywhere in the city - and beyond. San Marco at night is particularly attractive and has a great atmosphere once the daytrippers have left. The weather was glorious and allowed us to make lots of use of the lovely balcony - for breakfasts and our evening Bellinis - all ingredients bought locally! We love Venice and St Marks Residence and hope to return sooner rather than later. Thanks Leonora. DS&L.

Location

Car: not necessary

Venice, unique City of Water lies in North Eastern Italy. Piazza San Marco a World Heritage Unesco site is less than 30 seconds from our apartment. We are on the Merceria dell'Oralagio We can see the imposing Campanile and the fascinating Torrel del Orologio from our apartment and

enjoy the benign gaze of St Mark on the Byzantium Domes of his Cathedral when we sit on our balcony. We can sometimes hear the orchestras in St Mark's at nighttime and love the fact that we are so central, the beautiful laguna is only the other side of San Marco from us and it is magic to walk there late at night.The

Laguna with all its beauty and mysteries await you and the famous Lido is only a short waterbus (vaporetto) ride away. All the islands of the Laguna are so easily explored and you can get

a vaporetto from within a few minutes of our apartment. We are within walking distance( 5 minutes on foot) of The Rialto famous for its wonderful markets and the majestic Grand Canal.

Other Activities: Guided tours and lectures on Venice and the

surrounding Veneto region. Day trips to Verona, Padua and

and the Brenta Canal. Wine and Language tours and courses.

Notes:
St Mark residence, a two bedroomed apartment with balcony in the heart of Venice offers you the opportunity to stay in an unbeatable central location adjacent to St Mark's Square.You can enjoy a glass of prosecco on the balcony with St Mark looking down on you from the Basilica The gunmetal men on the Clock Tower will obligingly mark the time for you and at night or early in the morning you can have the Piazza San Marco virtually to yourself. The hustle and bustle of people leaving St Mark's takes place in the busy Mercerie full of designer shops below the apartment yet in the morning all you will hear will be the birds and the chiming of clocks. The warren of streets, canals and vaporetto stops that make up Venice are so easy to navigate when every sign directs you to St Marks, so you will never get lost. Its the perfect place to explore this magical, unique city and we hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do. Smoking on balcony. Children over 9 allowed
