About Brittany Hymore

I am a lover of life and all its opportunities. I am originally from Toledo, Ohio and travelled to Venice for the first time at the age of 18 in the year 2000. I met my husband on my second day in this amazing city and knew immediately my life was going to change forever..... 'Just Stay' were his exact words. Almost 12 years later I am now a wife and mother of two amazing little Venetians. In 2007 when I was pregnant with my first child I knew I had to figure out a way to do what I love and take care of my loved ones.... and that was the beginning of CharmingVenice. My husband is a talented architect and I an interior designer. We had a blast designing our first rental apartment, which lead to the second, then the third. We love the city we live in and want everyone who comes to fall in love too...

Brittany Hymore purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Brittany Hymore chose San Marco

Unlike most properties in the city, the Saint Mark's Terrace provides sunlight and sweeping views over Venice.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear, Brittany,

Words have not been invented to tell you how much I enjoyed my month in Venice! Time, at this point in my life, is my most precious possession and the spending of it is really an art form! :-) The apartment was perfect..everything I could wish for..including it's owners. I enjoyed shopping by vaporetto, no cars, the neighborhoods, the off the tourist trail eateries and those perfect moments as each day the bells! Even the crowds were part of living in Venice..... This truly was a once in any lifetime's perfect vacation.

Breathtaking views in a central location that rises above the hubbub of Venice streets

  • 5 of 5

The location could not be better. It's a 1-2 minute walk to the Piazza San Marco, the Basilica, the Doge's Palace, and Museo Correr and an 10 minute walk to the Rialto Bridge. Despite the central location, the balconies are amazingly peaceful--well, except possibly for the more vocal seagulls that inhabit the rooftops.

With its proximity to the Piazza, it is extremely easy to catch multiple vaporetto lines--including the 1 and 2 that run along the Grand Canal. The proximity also made our airport transfer incredibly convenient, with only a short 5 minute walk with luggage from the dock.

The views from the balconies will be what I remember most. From dawn to late evening, there was always something amazing to see--from the Campanile, to the bronze figures on the Clocktower hammering their bell, to those aforementioned seagulls calling to one another from the rooftops. We enjoyed breakfast every morning on the master bedroom balcony before taking the plunge down onto the busy streets below.

Although not enormous, the apartment was plenty large for our family of four. Due to its clever layout, both of our kids had their own rooms--the small bedroom for one and the living room for the other. We never felt too on top of one another.

The kitchen is another great feature and I strongly recommend seeking out the Italian coffee maker in the cabinet for a morning espresso or latte.

This really was an incredible place--one we will remember fondly.

The Barn

Very cosy and comfortable apartment near San Marco

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this apartment so much, especially the small terrace was a great place to relax and enjoy the view accompanied by the sounds of church bells, the clock tower bell with the mores and the full sound of the campanile.

On the other side of the apartment a balcony, another place to relax.

The elevator, although small, made our stay very comfortable. After a full day exploring Venice we didn't need to climb up to the 6th floor (5th in Italy).

Fantastic location !

  • 5 of 5

Nice property, old-style furniture, fully functional. Very calm although right across the corner from San Marco piazza. Outstanding view of Campanile and basilic from both balconies. Ability to have lunch and dinner on the bedroom terrace. Owner and cleaning lady are extremely nice and accommodating. Go for it !

Unbelievable Location and Comfortable Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was located about 3 minutes from Saint Mark’s Square with easy access to the many restaurants and sites of Venice. Since the apartment was on the 5th floor there was the most amazing views of the skyline around us, both inside the apartment but particularly on the balconies off the living area and bedroom: memorably the Clock Town, Basillica and Campanile. The bells of the Campanile provided a beautiful serenade of sound, particularly at 9:00am in the morning.

The apartment itself was quite comfortably appointed. A large living room/dining area was a wonderful place to have breakfast cooked at ‘home’ or reheated food from the night before. The master bedroom provides plenty of space to unpack for the stay and the second bedroom, though smaller, can be used in a variety of ways(storing suitcases and other bags) as there were only two of us. We enjoyed cooking breakfast and on the rainiest day our dinner.

Brittany and Valentina (who met us at 8:30pm on our arrival) were most helpful prior to our visit and once we were there. Brittany helped us set up the reservation and went out of her way to recommend a service to guide us from the airport - Marco Polo - directly to the apartment as well as helped us on our way out to the train station. The service is ProntoPorter and will add another note on them below. Valentina was available for questions during the stay, particularly helpful when the tides were coming up and flooding St. Mark’s Square. Going as far as to send information on an app that provides tidal predictions. Thanks to both of you.

If we had any small suggestion it would have to do with the lighting -particularly in the living room. Since we both enjoy reading in the evening we couldn’t get enough light to sit on the couch and read our books and relax. Very small issue overall.

**. ProntoPorter. Brittany provided the name of this service for our arrival and departure. We cannot say enough about the high quality service we received. A “Local” (the title of those that meet you) is there at your arrival point and for departure comes to where you are staying to help you make your travel connection. As a couple in their 60’s, being guided into Venice (which does have an interesting layout) and knowing the best transportation to accomplish this was extremely helpful. Both Locals spoke excellent English, were very knowledgeable about Venice, and even helped us with our luggage. We will use them again.

Faultless appartment.

  • 5 of 5

Second visit to Venice and St Marks appartment. Ideally situated 2 minutes from the square. Well equipped to cook dinner bought from the market at Rialto and sit on the balcony to enjoy. Or alternatively you could stroll to nearby restaurants. Comfortable weeks stay would highly recommend.

Nice apartment, very attentive owners

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately we had to cut our stay in Venice short, but the apartment was everything we could have wished. Great location, great views, bells, bells, bells. Air conditioning was really a bonus. Wifi worked great which was a plus as I was working while on my vacation. Can't say enough nice things about Brittany and her husband who had to help us out quite a few times and were always pleasant and cheerful. Definitely hope to see Venice again, just maybe not in July. It's hot and there are way too many people around.
