Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Castello

Cà Centanini

An outstanding position if compared to most of holiday appartments available on the market.

A few steps off from the bridge of Rialto and Piazza San Marco, in a beautifull palace dating back to 1400-1600, home to Doge Marcello. Totally renewed with all possible comforts. An environnement untouched and authentic. The appartment has a beautifull coffered ceiling and the original 1600 three-mullioned window. Cà Centarini will be for the guest an authentic and unforgettable Venitian experience.

Great Location & Beautiful Area

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time staying at this apartment. Mr Fusco, the house keeper met us at the water taxi stop and took us straight to the apartment. He was even kind enough to carry my mother's bag. He could not have been more hospitable and friendly throughout our stay. He was very helpful with restaurant recommendations and even helped me find a place to print out an itinerary. The apartment has air conditioning which in the heat of June was wonderful. It is within a minute's walk to a grocery store and 8 minutes to San Marco. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone.

Hidden garden in Venice

  • 5 of 5

You know they exist, but their treasure secret is well kept behind high walls and entrance doors! It´s balsam for Your soul when You (are allowed to) enter this hidden garden in a small and narrow Calle just behind Campo Santa Maria Formosa backed by a small "canal". Lush green leaves, flowers, trees and a magnificent stairway and a typical "pozzo", the venetian dwell welcomes You and will make Your eyes wide open and let You feel at home. Nowadays more families live in this beautiful Palazzo, so it´s a rule not to sit in the garden (their is not a single chair at all), nor play nor have long and loud conversations. A wise decision, which should be respected. The apartment itself in the first floor is clean & nicely furnished and took advantage of the high ceilings of what formerly could have been a "piano nobile", to implement 2 sleeping galleries with 2 double queen size beds. If You have friends or children the apartment "could" sleep 7 persons in extra bed and sofas BUT I would highly recommend 5 as a Maximum to keep Your privacy and avoid rush hours in the fully equipped bath room in the basement. The small kitchen provides everything You need to prepare Your breakfast or even better Your lunch or dinner invitation with all the fantastic raw materials You can buy at the rialto fish, meet and vegetable market (6 minutes), a COOP market for the convenient ´products is just round the corner. If You stay longer than 4 or 5 days, having Your own dinner invitation is great fun and a must (because I like to cook). Campo Santa Maria Formosa close to your house is a vivid and lively place where You can watch early in the morning, enjoying Your Cappuccino and Brioche in one of the bars, either venetians starting their day or some of the sea gulls which might have disturbed Your nights sleep (if You sleep with open window). The owner, Mrs Giancinto Notarbartolo di Sciara, who lives in Milano is very helpful with everything You might need preparing Your visit and in Venice You are welcomed by Mr. Andrea Fusco, her housekeeper, who will also provide You with his personal Restaurant and Osteria recommondations. >>Be sure to try to open the main entrance in the garden by Yourself while he is supervising You, it´s a bit tricky! My Osterie? The closest to Ca´ Notarbartolo just 100 meters away is maybe the best in Venice: "Alle Testiere". It is tiny (only 5 tables, so book well in advance, either 7:30 PM or 9:30 PM.) For lunch try "Alla Frasca"!

Fabulous venice

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location in Venice. Spacious, quiet, nicely decorated. Suitable for a family with children. I am a cook and i was delighted to have a very well equipped kitchen. Few steps from coop and a vegetable vendor in Santa maria Formosa. The communication with the owner and house keeper was excellent. Timely, and interactive. Definitely a place to come back. Highly recommended.

Clean, well-furnished apartment; helpful staff

  • 5 of 5

Well-maintained apartment with all appliances and furnishings in working order. Close to most everything for daily treks throughout Venice. Great communication with owner and housekeeper (both email and phone). The greeting by the housekeeper at the boat and his walk with us to the apartment was greatly appreciated and a great stress-reducer (how do you find anything in Venice?) The inner courtyard is a common area and not a sitting/gathering spot. Would definitely recommend to someone visiting Venice.

This wonderful apartment set the stage for a perfect stay in Venice. The delightful housekeeper met us at the water taxi, escorted us to the apartment, did a complete walk through upon arrival, answered our questions and made us feel so comfortable. The apartment is 'loved' - tastefully decorated, spotless, well furnished, and well maintained. The location is absolutely perfect. Beautiful private courtyard. Quiet and safe. I highly recommend this apartment. Thank you, Giacinta, for sharing your home and the outstanding customer service.

Tres bel appartement deco...

  • 5 of 5

Tres bel appartement decore avec gout ou l'on se sent comme chez soi. Donne sur un petit jardin et une rue tranquille. Amenagement de l'appartement parfait pour un sejour en famille.

Arret de taxi d'eau tout proche, tres pratique pour arriver avec les valises.Bonne organisation a l'arrivee. Magasin d'alimentation a quelques minutes ainsi que quelques bons restaurants de quartier. Agreables places avec cafes, loin de la foule de touristes mais assez proche du Grand Canal, de la Place Saint Marc et le Pont Rialto.

Je ne saurais que recommander ce bel appartement ou nous avons passe un excellent sejour.
