It was nicely located from Zattere with a supermarket a two minute walk away. There were lots of stairs to get up to the apartment initially but this is common in Venice. It was very homely and perfectly sized for two. The terrace is fantastic, with sun throughout the day and fantastic views. This is the highlight of the apartment. Good communications throughout. Would consider staying again.

We were all so very impressed with this fantastic apartment. There is so much space. Other reviews say it all. Antonio was great to deal with both before and during our stay. The apartment is a very comfortable and beautiful home with every amenity. We used the wonderful terraces a lot. Location is perfect, away from the busiest tourist areas but literally steps away from Accademia bridge giving easy access for walking everywhere and using the boats. This year our trip was a family holiday during which our son and daughter-in-law got married in Venice. Getting ready on the wedding day in this apartment was an absolute treat! We had the most amazing time here.

Arriving by boat taxi arranged by the owner, we were met at the boat stop, a short walking distance from the apartment and swiftly guided through it. It is ideally located, central in San Marco yet in an alley, giving privacy and quietness. It is absolutely beautiful and equipped with everything you would need and more, including that awesome rooftop terrace where we enjoyed the sun and the incredible view of the city. We could not be more happy with the place and our overall experience. Will be back, for sure.
