Only ten minutes walk from St. Mark's, the apartment is located at the ground floor but safe from high water danger (mt.1,52 above sea level) and has its own entrance. Simply but pleasantly furnished. The windows overlooking channel, a "riva" and a little inner courtyard provide enough light and create a lovely atmosphere. You enter directly into the living room, where there are 2 sofa beds, TV, radio and CD player. Communicating is the kitchen/dining room, with adequate kitchenware and cookware; there is a microwave oven. You access then to the bedroom with lovely window overlooking the canal and door window leaning to a lovely private courtyard. In the first part of the bathroom a washing machine; bathroom, with sink, bidet and shower, is comfortable, ventilated and lighted by two little windows overlooking the channel

Felt like a local in Venice
Castello was a great little apartment. Really easy to cook and do a load of washing. Right next to a canal which was lovely. It was very nice and quiet as it is about 10 min walk from the main attractions of Venice and restaurants. Felt like one of the locals in this area.
Nice little apartment
We had a nice stay here over all. It is not fancy but who can complain about a clean little apartment on a canal!? It took a day but I figured out there are places to buy food and drink near the neighborhood church, San Martino. Comfortable beds and nice quiet place with plenty of room. My only advice is to make sure you verify check out time on your departure date with the owner the day before you arrive. In my case all was resolved but his cleaning staff arrived two hours early. A quick email to Alfio confirming the check out time is all that would have been needed. He’s very nice. The neighborhood is dreamy!
It was an incredible experience to have our own apartment in such a quiet neighbourhood in such a historic and beautiful city! The apartment was a lot bigger than expected and very well equipped. We cooked a few meals with ease and were able to get some laundry done. Having the canal right there is pretty unreal, and we had a few singing gondoliers go passed. The location is great and easy to find from the Arsenale water taxi station using Alfio's drawn map. Our short interaction with Valentina was great and very easy, and communication with Alfio was awesome and extremely helpful. The apartment was as described if not better and if I ever went back to Venice I would certainly try to book with Alfio again!
I'm happy you appreciated the apartment and I hope to have you as guests again. Thank you and best regards, Alfio
The apartment was fantastically stocked and very spacious. It could sleep 6 tightly. The location was great, it was fantastic being on the island and watching as the other tourists board the ferry every night to return back to the mainland. The apartment was so well stocked that we managed to make a 3 course meal one night, it has every kitchen appliance you can think of, including a juicer and a garlic press. My only complaint with the apartment was the owner's attitude. We had problems one day figuring out how to light the stove (turns out we accidentally turned the switch off) but when I called Alfio for help he was extremely rude and yelled at me through the phone. He was not helpful and it came as quite a shock as he had always seemed pleasant through emails.
I’m sorry you took for rudeness my difficulty to understand what was the problem; I was outside among people speaking and I’m not so sure with spoken English. You cannot say that I didn’t help you, since immediately I sent Mrs. Valentina to resolve the little problem (and this was of course also a cost for me). Anyway I apologize if you felt my attitude, also unintentionally, rude. Kind regards, Alfio Donati

"We had a lovely time staying in the appartment. It was very comfortable and well equiped, close to local shops and 'off the beaten track'. It was great having the canal next to us - we even had a Gondola go past!. A peaceful neighbourhood yet within easy walking distance of all the major attractions and vaporetto services."
Une perfection !
Vraiment un endroit où on se sent bien, décoré avec goût, on sent que le propriétaire a réfléchi intelligemment à l'atmosphère, c'est idéal pour un séjour à Venise. Entre autres, par exemple, des CD de Beethoven joué par Richter, Bach par Gould, de belles affiches, Klee, Vedova, des détails qui comptent. La vue sur un petit canal et le mur de l'Arsenal, la petite cour privée, dès qu'on arrive, on a envie de revenir car ce n'est pas une location banale. Mais pas en été quand il fait chaud ! (même s'il y a l'air conditionné, vraiment indispensable).
..From vaporetto (sea bus) stop ARSENALE 10 minutes walk. Few meters from San Martino church, along the big wall of the Arsenale..............................................
