About the property

Hydra & Aurora

Ask the Owner for a full brochure for each of them.

Part of a XVI Cent. finely restored building, in the heart of the most central and elegant part of Venice, we propose you two lovely twin aparts, named Hydra and Aurora.

A distinctive XVI Cent. private courtyard (Corte Zorzi) allows access to the building letting them a agreable brightness within a perfect noise sheltering (really poor in pedestrian Venice and such position anyway). The location is just behind Saint-Mark square yes, but in a quiet hidden corner where just few tourists arrives. Despite to its fully central position the area is not a massive tourist path and still preserves flavours and sensations of times gone by.

Just out of the courtyard u will find a small nice venetian square, Campo San Gallo, with a pleasant open-air cafè where u can have both a coffee/drink or a light meal, and an even small charming theatre, Teatro San Gallo, where every day u could attend entertaining shows telling about the Great stories of Venice (English language).

Leaving the Campo and crossing a small bridge u will find Bacino Orseolo, the main starting point for every kind of Gondolas tours.

Finally, aparts position and features let Hydra and Aurora a perfect getaway to easily visit the whole Venice without wasting energies precious time with transfers, everything is around u.

Perfect accomodations for both self-catering and visiting Hydra and Aurora are twin de luxe aparts in the beaty hearth of Venice.

Excellent suites behind Saint-Mark's Square

  • 5 of 5

2 couples we rented 1 unit each. A bit more costly than a 2 bedrooms but every couple was willing to its own privacy and we also really had 2 suites, not just narrow doubles. The 2 aparts are at the same second floor of a fascinating building just behind Saint-Mark's square, same stairs, next doors. The area is (incredibly) extremely quiet, a quiet hidden corner in the hearth of Venice.

We stayed in Aurora, our guests in Hydra. We have been nicely surpriesed by the quality and taste of features and furnitures, as well as cleanliness. Beds are large and mattress comfortable, nice bathrooms, warm living with parquets and ceiling beams. Views are spectacular from every window. Good wi-fi, perfect and kind service. We had breakfast and some dinners at home toghether with our friends (good kitchen, full of basics) but we also followed the Owner's restaurants suggestions for special fish dinners, not just touristic restaurants where we also had reductions as Owner's guests. The position is fantastic for visiting, we really made the most of our short time in this beautiful and charming Town. Excellent, at least. Definiteley suggested.

Excellent location and apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Venice and the apartments. We were two families traveling together with 4 kids from age 11-14 and stayed in two apartments. The location was perfect and the apartments were lovely and comfortable. It was easy to wander around the city and visit all of the places we wanted to see in Venice. The owner was very helpful over email, and the woman who met us at the water taxi to let us in gave great suggestions about what to do, where to eat, etc. Highly recommend it! We had an amazing stay in Venice and this perfect apartment and location made for a memorable trip.

Great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The location was great! It was quiet, but still near the popular places. The owner met us at the water taxi and walked us to the apartment. Upon our departure, he came back and took us back to the water taxi. Even carried my suitcase! Everything was very clean and a great way to begin our Italian vacation.

Nice apartment in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

For anyone looking for serene and soothing feel of Venice, I recommend this apartment just behind San Marco square. Peaceful and quiet. One of the nicest apartments we've been to with an attractive Aurora living room. Good accommodation and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing!! Super clean, comfortable and stylish . Its in a great location close to everything but you still feel like a local. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Venice. We can't wait to go back. Also a coffee shop right on the corner which was a nice little bonus.

Great location in Venice

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the apartment for two nights. The location was great. We were met at the boat and taken to the apartment when we arrived. The internet worked great. The photos of the apartment fairly represent what we found. The apartment is located on the second floor and requires you to carry your bags up the stairs (no lift). C

The apart is located in a charming XV Cent. perfectly restored Venetian building, just behind Saint-Mark, in an extremely quiet position. In fact this is an hidden Venetian corner and, even if just few steps away from the celebrate Saint-Mark Square, it is out of usual massive touristic paths and still preserves flavours and sensations of times gone by.

Furthermore the building entrance is from Corte Zorzi, a beautiful XV Cent. venetian courtyard (u'll find many pics of it in the Net) sheltering the aparts from any possible noise and letting them extremely quiet and bright.

When u exit from Corte Zorzi u get in Campo San Gallo, a delicious venetian small 'Campo' with an open-air cafè and an intresting theatre (Teatro San Gallo).

Then, few steps away and u get in Saint-Mark square.
