About the property

Hearth of Venice, canal view, qietness, comfort: perfect for easy sight-seeing

An initial Message instead of a direct booking Request would be appreciated as it would allow to introduce themselves and receive complete informations (full brochure) with no pressure.

Charming private apartment in the hearth of Venice, finely furnished, quiet and comfortable. Encased by canals and a private courtyard (magnificent Corte Zorzi) allowing access to the building, Astarte apart is absolutely quiet as it is sheltered by any possible hustle and bustle of tourists.

Anyway the area is not a massive touristic path, it is an hidden corner just behind Saint_Mark’s square.

Typical “battuto veneziano” floors, ceiling beams and Murano glass chandliers, within a magnificent canal view over a secondary canal where just gondolas are allowed to navigate, bring guests in a real and agreeable venetian atmosphere.

Astarte equipment allow guests to prepare any meal for an easy self-catering.

A Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful way to end our vacation! This apartment was perfect in every way, with comfortable beds, excellent amenities friendly people, and and a stunning location. It is a special treat to open almost any window and watch the gondolas cruising slowly below.

Traveler Hint: Spend a euro and buy a DETAILED street map! Venice is a maze of tiny streets!

The location is perfect, mere seconds by foot from St Mark's Square and the water. It seems that every street has beautiful shops and wonderful restaurants every few meters!

Our apartment featured all modern amenities, all in perfect working order, except for the internet, which is NOT the apartment's fault. Our connection was fine, it is the service provider that is at fault!

A very comfortable stay, made even better by Matilda, the agent of the owner, who is a New Jersey ex-pat. Thanks, Matilda, you were super!

Really good

  • 5 of 5

Really good full canal view accomodation. We found 100% what promised and much more. Easy deal, nice welcoming (Matilde, english mother tongue, exposed us everything about the apart and surroundings, suggesting us really nice restaurants for our special nights). The location is what best we could dream really few steps from Saint-Mark’s square, absolutely quiet corner. Perfect both for visiting and stay. The apart was cleaned quiet and comfortable, with spectacular canal view. Everything finely working. Outside a nice small square with a small theatre San Gallo (we attended a spectacle about “the great story and stories of Venice” in English. We all loved it, warmly suggested. A nice open air cafè is in the small square too, a Simly market is just few steps away. If u like fish and do not want a “standar & expensive touristic menu” we warmly suggest u Trattoria da Remigio, one of the last, oldest and less touristic Trattorie in Venice. Finally due to this accomodation and staff’s kindness we really enjoyed our stay in Venice. Definiteley recommended.

Unique accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Family of 4 spent 5 nights after a cruise in this beautiful accomodation. Quick friendly deal with Andrea easy check-in meeting friendly Matilde at the Rialto’s waterbus stop: just few walking and we reached the apart. The location is just behind Sait-Mark’s square, incredibly forgotten hidden corner, perfect starting point for visiting but also perfect for a pleasant and quiet stay. We easily visited the whole town and enjoyed the

quiet surroundings as well (many small hidden restaurants and shops whose exploration was lovely).

The apart is an easy first floor (good when back visiting for our tired legs) and my two sons have been

pleasantly “shoked” by the stunning canal view it offers from the living and their bedroom’s window.

They spent the most part of their home time looking at gondolas navigating behind windows instead of watching TV or playing electronics (much appreciated by us, parents). We found a perfectly cleaned and well appointed apart, all working fine: we had good wi-fi, good AC, clothes washer and a really fully furnished kitchen. As in the heart of an historical ancient and touristic town (we already experienced it) we were prepared to accept an usual activity noise level around us: in fact we found few noises in the morning, even less during day, no noises by night. This is the reason why, within its position and view, I can easily brand this accomodation as unique.

Thank u to all Astarae staff.

Could be lovely

  • 3 of 5

This is a lovely little place with a romantic view of the smaller canals and within a 90 second walk to St Marks square. Not as quiet as we would have hoped with the early morning deliveries, the early morning garbage pick up, and the baby screaming somewhere downstairs. Our air conditioner worked but it could not quite reach both of the bedrooms at night, but we adjusted eventually. Plenty of hot water in the tiny shower but the Internet was so slow that we would have had better luck with the pony express. We felt like we could walk anywhere that we needed from this great location. It just needs a little polish.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, thank you for your kind Review. I can understand that guest coming from completely new built countries and not supported by an adequate cultural level cannot fully appreciate the charme and value of a stay in a XVI Cent. historical building in the hearth of an ancient Town, with all its small peculiarities. Astarte dedicated Wi-Fi is usually speedy and finely working, maybe u had just to reboot the wi-fi device (u just could ask to the on site manager). Its AC finely works as well, u cannot reach 18°C as maybe u are used but if u consider u are in a XVI Cent. building u could understand why it is not possible and feel anyway satisfied. Concerning noises they are low typical noises of the ancient Town waking up around u, we cannot (and neither want) completely eliminate them, they are really low and part of the charme and sensations of such a kind of accomodation. We are just few steps behind Saint-Mark's square, real hearth of Venice, perfect for visiting, and even if the corner is absolutely quiet and out of massive tourist paths we cannot avoid light activity noises. Thank you again for your Review, allowing me to explain. Andrea Astarte Owner and Manager

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous apartment with an ideal location just yards from St Marks Square but tucked away in a quiet corner. Family of four for a long weekend had a great time and what a surprise when we opened the shutters to see gondolas passing right by us... the pictures above do not lie! Only recommendation I would make is shop at the Coop supermarket by the Grand Canal near the Rialto bridge where Calle Carbon meets Riva del Carbon. Much nicer experience than the Coop Alleanza! Roberto and Matilde were so helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay again if we ever venture back to Venice. Thank you so much..

We stayed during Easter and this property was perfect for our family of four. Nicely furnished, very clean, excellent service perfect location and overall unbelievable canal view. We admired so many gondolas that I guess I would be able to ride one by myself. Comfortable living area, good beds, the bathroom and kitchen were really nicely done. We rent through VRBO pretty consistently and this apartment was one of our best finds. I cannot recommend it highly enough. In fact, we have recommended it to several friends already. When we arrived, the kitchen was already stocked for breakfast. What a pleasant surprise and really made it easy to transition to sightseeing. Thanks so much to Mr. Robertoand his staff. As others have written, this is where we will stay again in Venice.

Hearth of Venice, few meters from St. Marc square, perfect for an easy sight-seeing.

A private internal XVI Cent. Venetian courtyard (Corte Zorzi) allow access to the building and also shelter the apart from any possible tourist’s hustle and bustle. In fact the apart is absolutely quiet.

Charming view on the nice canal behind its windows (Canale Orseolo) where just gondolas are allowded to navigate all day long (gondolas deposit and main departure area is 50 meters far).
