Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in San Marco - Formosa Apartment

Amazing central location.1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, living room, air conditioning.

Lovely and cosy Formosa apartment is just 5 min walking distance from S. Marco's Square and the Rialto Bridge. It' s located just few steps from Santa Maria Formosa one of the most characteristic place in Venice. It's on the second floor, without lift, of a typical Venetian building. Recently restored the apartment, of about 50 m², consists in a large open space with kitchen and living (with high wood beaming ceiling), satellite TV and double sofa bed. Kitchen is furnished with fridge and freezer, gas stove, microwave, dishwasher. The main bedroom has a King size bed, large wardrobe. Bathroom with bathtub and washing machine. Very original and prestigious ceilings represented by a truss structure. Parquet floor. Air conditioning, fan and cradle available on request. All the rooms are very bright as lighted up by several windows. Supermarket, shops, restaurants, bars, pubs, just nearby.

Shopping: We are just around the corner from a Venetian supermarket, less than 1 min walk away. Shopping for food couldn't be easier. If you like fresh food go to the very famous Rialto mercato a daily food market (no Sunday) crammed with just fished fish, fresh fruit and vegetables just off Rialto bridge. Nearby the apartment there are various other small food outlets scattered around where you can buy meats, cheese, bread, etc. This will be a more interesting although challenging shopping experience than the supermarket. You will find many top brand shops antique and gift shops.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Despite the rain, we had a great time in Venise (it was our 2nd time) and the Apartment Formosa was just PERFECT: it was centrally located, comfortable (once we figured out the boiler), it had everything we needed and Gloria was always available when we needed..

I would not hesitate to recommend it to my friends

thank you for everything

Excellent location, big flat, good facilities

  • 5 of 5

We came to Venice to do the Venice Marathon in Oct 2014. The reason for choosing this apartment was because it had a bathtub and we wanted to know we'd be able to soak our weariness away after the run!

The other reason for choosing the apartment was because it was close to waterbus stops at Rialto and San Marco - we knew we'd need to have good transport links so we could get picked up by the marathon buses very early on the Sunday morning.

It turned out that our choice was an excellent one.

The apartment was very spacious and the kitchen had enough facilities for breakfast and lunch. You could probably make dinner there too and eat at the breakfast bar but there are lots of restaurants right on the doorstep so we just ate out.

The living area is open plan kitchen/living room and there is plenty of room for two people to spread out and relax.

The bathroom was nice and big too - the bathtub was most welcome and the shower worked fine too. There was also a washing machine in the bathroom which we used.

The bedroom had lots of storage and the bed was big and comfortable.

We arrived late in the evening but met up with our greeter with no problems - we'd got off at the wrong Rialto stop but had been given a mobile number to call and the greeter came straight away to where we were. We had lots of helpful communication from Luca before we arrived too!

The location of the apartment was excellent. The entrance was in a little back lane off Salizada San Lio which has lots of restaurants and there's a supermarket on the next corner. You can walk to San Marco or Rialto in about 10 minutes as the apartment is mid-way between both attractions - both are on the main waterbus line too so you can easily get to all parts of the city.

I would highly recommend this apartment and will use it again if I return to Venice - thanks Luca!

Great location in the heart of Venice

  • 3 of 5

Its a great location. The Rialto bridge and St. Mark's Square are just a few mins away. Supermarket and restaurants are right down the ever-bustling lane. The apartment in itself is very good, exactly as depectied in the description and pictures you see here. The 3 flight of stairs could be a challenge, especially with people who travel heavy, or have health issues. Operating the shower requires some skill. The welcome party was very helpful - our flight was delayed by 2 hours, but we had no problems in calling and changing the meet-up time at the Rialto. We loved Venice and will definately recommend this apartment for anyone who needs to a comfortable stay in the city-centre.

Very clean, charming and perfectly located apartme

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two 12 year old sons and I stayed at Formosa Apartment for 3 days in May 2014. We had no issues with welcoming service. However we were coming by train from Florence and planned ahead to be there on time, to avoid any late arrival fees.

We really enjoyed it. The place is very welcoming, clean and charming. Location is perfect, only a couple of minutes away from St. Mark’s Square.

Even though there are some stairs you need to climb, we did not mind it at all, as it was a good work out after all the pasta and risotto we ate.

We loved the fruits and vegetables store nearby - always fresh and tasty produce. Also the supermarket is 1 minute from the apartment, which helped us a lot to manage the food budget.

The owner was always reachable by e-mail and helped us right-a-way to sort out the questions we had.

We will definitely consider this place when we travel to Venice next time and already recommended it to our friends.

VERY GOOD APPARTMENT IN GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Formosa Apartment. All the arrangements were fin. Apt. well - equipped. No elevator . but at the end it was a great start for a walking day. Air conditioning was a must and fantastic during the summer, in particular after a long hot day. Only some minutes walk from St Mark's Square. Supermarket just there. Minutes walk from St Mark's Square. PROBLEMS. Arriving and meeting the host was not convenient, since it is very difficult to coordinated the best time and were also told that there was a charge (quite expensive) if late. Coming from another continent, we did not miss the appointment only by luck. This should be coordinated in a better way, to welcome the tenant instead of an added stress, when arriving tired after a long flight. The rental office was helpful after that episode. Please improve hot water in the shower. Happy to stay again back in Venice.

Formosa Apartment is very centrally located, in the true heart of Venice, for a comfortable stay nearby the most interesting points of Venice: S.Marco's Square and Rialto Bridge are just about 5 min walking distance from Formosa Apartment. Few steps away from the lively Santa Maria Formosa Square, well known for its outdoor bars, pubs and restaurants, and the Salisada San Lio for shopping. From the Formosa apartment, you really will be able to enjoy Venice the legendary lagoon city, full of history and with an immense cultural and artistic heritage.

The typical 'palazzi', the canals and the gondolas create a suggestive atmosphere that you can find only in few other places in the world.
