The apartment 'located in Venice, in the Santa Croce area, near the ancient church of San Simeon Prophet.
A curiosity is that on the side of the church is a large walled and enigmatic tombstone depicting a bishop portrait with hands raised in prayer. The Venetian tradition believes that the bishop is represented San Simeon and his hands raised in prayer were interpreted, in the will more earthly, of not wanting to be involved in disputes. This gave rise to the saying, known all over the city: 'San Simeon no intrigue me!' (Not m'impiccio).
A few meters from the apartment is one of the most beautiful canals of Venice, Rio Marin (where they have just opened a supermarket, Billa, very well stocked), continuing (5 minutes walk) you can visit the Scuola Grande di San John the Evangelist, the Basilica of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, where he placed the Assumption of Titian and the Scuola Grande di San Rocco, where, in 1564, was asked to Tintoretto to decorate it.
The apartment is easily accessible from the train station and Piazzale Roma (bus terminal of Venice). The area is well served by public transport, 100 meters is the landing of Riva De Biasio by vaporetti leading to Rialto (4 Stop), San Marco, Venice Lido and the island of Murano.
The apartment has just been restored is equipped with all the comforts, 2 televisions 51 inches, air conditioning and wi-fi is free on the first floor and has a relaxed and peaceful.
The area is 130 square meters where you develop a large
living room, a fully equipped kitchen (dishwasher, stove, oven, fridge and washing machine), a dining room with a large wooden table, two large double bedrooms served by a bathroom with tub.
We chose this apartment based on the high reviews. Constante was great about responding to emails and his assistant, Frederica, met us at an easy to find location to show us the apartment. The apartment is in a great location, easy to find from the train station. The building is secure. There is a Coop grocery store not far away, go around the corner to the left and find a Majer bakery for some treats to take home and right next door to the right is an awesome gelato place - try the Fig and Walnut!
There is a beautiful kitchen to use but no kitchen towel, paper towels or sponge/dishrag to use for basic cooking. There is only one hot pad so if you want to cook like we did then you have to get creative. It's not a big deal, just frustrating to realize in the middle of cooking. The apartment was very clean and spacious and the washing machine was quick! The tub was a great find in Italy and although narrow was very appreciated by our family :-) It was so nice to sit at a dining room and we ate in for every dinner while we were in Venice to take advantage of that.
This apartment is located in a quiet area, but with nice restaurants close by. Close to the vaporetto stop - perfect for when you get 'lost'; all you need to do is find the vaporetto and you'll be home in no time! Nice Venetian mask store / workshop right across the street as well. The apartment is very spacious and modern. We arrived early by overnight train from Paris and were able to store our luggage while we explored, great! Costante and Federica are super easy to deal with, we'd book this again when we return to Venice.
There's more than enough room in this cute apartment! Its in a great location with restaurants, shops and a grocery store close by. A few nights for dinner after a long day out sight seeing we grabbed some bread, cheese, salami, and a bottle of wine and just had a quiet relaxing evening in. It does come with a fully equipped kitchen if you are in the mood to cook a full dinner. Check in was super easy meeting up to get the keys.
Just checked out of this beautiful apartment, would 100% recommend this place. Federica, host assistant was on time and meet us at the Riva De Biasio station which is like one block away from that station. The apartment is a little bit away from San Marco, and where some of the main attractions are, but is only a 10 minute Vaporetto ride away. Either, is centrally located just one stop away from the train station, and close to restaurants, shops, and supermarket.
Beautiful apartnment would def. stay here next time I come.
Very satisfied with the property, good followup on details
Great location, very modern, loads of space to stretch out, fun neighbourhood...and an excellent host who was helpful with information and made herself very available to assist with out check-in needs.
We would go back in a heartbeat!! Thanks Federica!!
