Great stay

5 of 5
Family of 5 (2 parents and 3 childs aged 16,13,9) we had the luck to spend our venetian stay in this accommodation. We really enjoyed every moment. Bellini is a quality featured villa, easy single entrance, charming features (I personally felt in love with its livingroom wooden coffered ceiling, my husband with “battuto veneziano” floor of the second bedroom), elegant and great taste furnitures. Diposed on 2 floors: ground high floor is the living area (large entrance, living/dining room, kitchen, bathroom) with access to the second and most appreciated “living area”, its beautiful garden. We spent the most part of our time in the garden, deep in a quiet green, surrounded by magnific plants and flowers (magnificent flowered glycin was flowering exactly during our stay, what a beauty, what a scent!). The sensation to have meals in a private garden in the middle of ancient Venice, within all its pervading flavours is an indescribable feeling. All the family, overall childs, was enchanted. Second floor is the night area: a large double bedroom with extra comfortable and large double bed where me and my husband comfortably slept. Magnific original wooden parquet and two windows facing the garden and a magnificent green lawn (no buildings!) I think the only one still existing in Venice. A second also large bedroom with double + single beds where our guys slept. Beautiful “battuto veneziano” floor and charing view over the quiet canal flooding just behind. Quality sleeps, quality fixtures, extreme quietness and brightness. What else, I know I am writing exactly what is reported in previous reviews but it is impossible not to talk about the beauty and charme of this accommodation. I am trying to find it defects but I cannot When u come out from the Villa Bellini encounters beautiful canal and elegant surroundings. Guggheneim museum is on the opposite side of the canal, a bit on the left. Plenty of art galleries and museums, small churches, hidden squares, restaurants and open air cafès. If u can get away with so much beauty u can visit the whole town just walking (we mostly did) or catching a comfy “vaporeto” in Salute stop and quickly reach every part of Venice. Gondola ferry service suggested by the Owner is something unique. Finally we had a great stay in a perfect accommodation and also perfect position. We would like to write again and again about but we cannot. What we can d is just to suggest this accommodation/location to everyone. Schuetz Family

Peaceful and relaxing atmosphere

5 of 5
I have stayed here twice before. Location is ideal. Apartment on 2 floors allows space and privacy. Courtyard is great. You have to sort your rubbish out and take it to the depot which is close by. Not really a problem.
