Make A Holiday Rental Apartment in Murano, Italy Your Home Away From Home

Although only 1 mile wide and with just over 5,000 residents, the island of Murano off of the coast near Venice is a popular destination with those seeking a tranquil getaway. A Murano holiday is the perfect choice for those who wish to soak up some Italian culture and tradition in surroundings that are far enough away from the busy tourist spots of the Venetian area. A Murano holiday rental apartment has all of the mod-cons you would expect of a top hotel with the added bonus of some spectacular views of the water and neighbouring Venice.

Things to Do on Holiday in Murano, Italy

A Murano holiday places an emphasis in simply relaxing, recharging and watching the world go by. There are a few outdoor activities available on the island which includes walking, cycling and swimming. There are several great attractions to visit on Murano including the Glass Museum in the Giustinian Palazzo. The island is famous for its glass making as all of the glass manufacturers moved to the island in the 13th century to lower the risk of fires. As a result there are many glass-blowing factories and shops to be explored. Another great attraction in Murano is the Church of Santa Maria e San Donato that was built originally in the 7th century. The church was first dedicated to The Virgin Mary and then to Saint Donatus, whom legend states slayed a dragon. The supposed bones of the dragon still hang above the altar for visitors to see.

                                      Excellent, clean, cool location, a little pricey

                                      The listing was even better than described - Alvise was communicated clearly, and excellently. He and his business partner welcomed me on the first day and were in communication via WhatsApp after that. The property was clean and very spacious - the only thing I'd suggest is a few more kitchen materials but I know that we were the first people tost ay after a small renovation. I would definitely recommend this property, it's in the Canareggio region near Fondamenta Misericordia where Venetians and local students go out for a drink. Grazie mille, Alvise!

                                      Beautiful Apartment !

                                      4 of 5
                                      You cannot fault this apartment for space/cleanliness/comfort BUT I have dropped 1 star for a few reasons, which do not detract from the apartment itself. I had looked online & saw that it was a 2 bedroomed apartment, a double bedded room & a twin bedded room. I made the booking on the basis that I would either be travelling with my daughter or possibly my son. I had seen that for 2 people you were supposed to use 1 room or the other but thought that either would be available to use - this proved not to be the case. Only the double bedded room was made ready (not ideal even with my daughter & definitely not had it been myself & my son !). The twin room is accessed through the double room & can be locked & isolated from the rest of the apartment, something which wasn't clear. We arrived quite late & felt really bad that Mrs Ghisetti had to make up the twin beds for myself & daughter - it is obviously more comfortable to have your own bed rather than share a double when it's warm. On that note, the air con is only available in the living area, not the bedrooms, where it is probably most needed but in June, we were OK. There were loads of random books available but nothing about places to eat/boat times etc. There was an Aliliguna timetable but not the ACTV one (I suspect someone had taken it out with them & not put it back). We spent time using the 4.2 route to St Mark's Sq (nearly an hour) when we could have got a number 7 boat from Murano Faro (15 mins walk) which was way quicker & more direct. It took another tourist staying in Venice itself, who we met on a food tour, to inform us of that. Murano is very sleepy & not particularly geared up for tourists - restaurants are spaced out on the Island & don't stay open very late at all. In fact we went out on the 2nd night at 20:30, having been out all day, so thought that time was fine to go out for a meal & struggled to find somewhere to serve us by 21:00, as the majority of restaurants had stopped taking food orders & seem to close altogether by about 22:00hrs. This would have been very useful to know. Also, beware that you are woken up by clanging church bells by 7:30am, whether you like it or not. The apartment was totally as per the pictures, with gorgeous pieces of art which I was terrified of breaking ! Mrs Ghisetti was lovely & gave us some delicious homemade cake for our breakfast, as we arrived too late for the supermarket. This is a fantastic apartment which I would recommend.

                                      Perfect in every way

                                      5 of 5
                                      We would totally recommend this apartment for your stay in Venice. The apartment description was accurate but in reality was beyond our expectations. It was spacious, well laid out, beautifully furnished, had all necessary facilities.and was immaculately clean. The location was also ideal. Getting to the apartment from the airport was straight forward. The cruise terminal was about 10 min walk from arrivals and the motorboat runs every 30 mins. The journey takes about 40 minutes and the stop is a few yards from the apartment. Incidentally there are no disadvantages to the location of the stop as you are unaware of any noise from inside the apartment. The area is quiet but only a few minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of the major sights. There is a small supermarket and an excellent bakery, which we visited frequently, both about 5 minutes away. We found the local restaurant Da Alvise had a good selection of dishes, was reasonably priced, and being situated on the waterfront, was a great place to have a meal. Elisa was an excellent host. She met us at the stop on arrival and gave us a comprehensive overview of the apartment and the local facilities as well as suggestions for days out. She then left us to enjoy our holiday but, as she lived in the apartment above, was readily available should we have needed her. We hope to return to Venice in the future as it is a place that you can enjoy time and time again. I would not hesitate to stay in this apartment again.
