Overview

About the property

Elegant Apt, Canal View, 2 Bathrooms (Jacuzzi and Shower), 1 Huge Bedroom, 4 Pax

The apt is located in the real heart of Venice, just few minutes walking from both St Mark Square and Rialto, so it is easy to take a rest at any moment of the day if you are tired and want to have a break.

The apt is located at the first floor - just one flight of stairs (20 steps) - and overlooks a beautiful canal where gondolas have their tour, so it is not uncommon during the day to hear some singers who play venetian songs!

If you arrive to the apt from S Marco stop by public boat (line 1 or 2) , you will not have to cross any bridge with your luggage, it is a short (few minutes) and plain walk.

If you prefer to stop at Rialto, you will cut your ride of around 20 min , but you will have to cross one bridge.

The apt has just been restored ( June 2015 ). The entrance is large with a modern fireplace, then you enter a comfortable ... and then again a spacious dining room, connected to the fully equipped kitchen.

The bedroom is huge with a king size bed ( but it can be separated in two big single beds), and it provides two other sofa-beds.

The two bathrooms are really comfortable, one with shower and the other with jacuzzi.

You will be met at the boat stop from someone of the family, who will bring you to the apt , and provide you a map giving all the information you need about museums, exhibitions, restaurants, supermarkets..

The Very Best in the Heart of Venice

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about this beautiful apartment in the heart of San Marco. Elegantly decorated, close to the action yet enough distance between the unit and the craziness of SM square. Modern touches throughout! Quiet and air conditioned. We went out everyday and walked for hours and we were always close enough to get back to the unit to cool down before dinner and more exploring in the evening. We are a couple with a 4 year old and Mother in Law in tow (3 adults and a child) and had plenty of space & bedding. As other reviews have stated, Leonardo and Roberta are the very best hosts your could hope for. They welcome you personally at the boat, which is a big deal because Venice can be very overwhelming and disorienting when you first arrive. They give you the quick tour and point out various points of interest as you weave your way to the apartment several blocks from the water taxi drop off. They even take the time to set you up with instructions on appliances, give you their recommendations for dining/tourist related activities, and many other valuable pieces of information that help to get you settled. They even took the time to walk us to dinner the first night when we were tired and hungry from our travels. We rented from Roberta and Leonardo because we liked the location and the vibe of an Italian family welcoming us home. This is exactly what we got. You can overpay for a bed and a small room at the many hotels, or you can experience a taste of Venetian elegance as though you were one of the family. We can't say enough about the location. Right on one of the canals, you're constantly entertained by the Gondolas and water taxis passing under your windows. The unit is stocked with literally everything you need, they even stocked us up with a few refreshments to get us started. For a family traveling with a 4 year old they even ran to get us some milk knowing it'd be hard to find at the late hour we arrived. If you're weighing various options and overwhelmed with your choices... stop your search now and book this unit, you won't regret it!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful apartment, well appointed, super clean and very quiet. Perfect location off St. Marks Square and all of Venice. The Host and Hostess were wonderful. Very informative of the area, great recommendations of sites and restaurants. Especially wonderful, was that there was a bakery, pastry, fresh fruit stand, meat, cheese and wine store all located next to each other just a block or so from the apartment. Made for great shopping to enjoy fresh local foods of Venice and Italy. Upon return to Venice, we would with a doubt return.

Just as described, an immaculate apartment very very centrally located

  • 5 of 5

Roberta gave a great welcome and introduction, the apartment was exactly as described and super, we are family of 4 and pretty well travelled, I'd be very happy if all the places we booked were as good.

Elegant Retreat in the heart of Venice

  • 5 of 5

My two daughters and I stayed here for our last two nights in Italy. The apartment is beautifully appointed and immaculate. We felt immediately at home and enjoyed the convenience of its location which enabled us to stop in throughout our day for a quick break if needed. Roberta greeted us -- umbrellas in hand -- when we arrived at the Rialto dock in the midst of a rain storm! We all enjoyed being serenaded by the passing gondoliers just beneath our windows! Two nights was not enough to take full advantage of this fine accommodation. Had we been there longer we would definitely have made use of the lovely kitchen, but instead, enjoyed the wonderful coffee and pastries at Marchini Time and a truly spectacular dinner at Ai Mercanti for our final night in Italy. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful apartment!

Amazing location, quiet

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment. It's in the heart of San Marco but this section seemed fairly uncrowded compared to what was around us. It has two wonderful bathrooms a very comfortable king size bed and AC units which worked perfectly. One minor criticism - no iron
