The two bathrooms are covered in original Bisazza mosaic (Murano) and are equipped with hair-dryer, towel warmer, liquid soap, carpets, towels, etc ...

Each room and each room has independent heating and air conditioning.

There is a complete supply of table linen, sheets and towels.

The kitchen also has a toaster and an American coffee machine and the first things you need: pepper, salt, coffee, pasta, vinegar, oil, towels, toilet paper, detergents, trash bags, etc ... and a welcome surprise!

Once you arrive in our apartment you will immediately realize the convenience of services at your disposal.

The apartment, in fact, presents a quiet restaurant below with typical Venetian cuisine, a café and a pastry shop. In addition, a comfortable and large COOP supermarket is a 3-minute walk away.

The house has all the features that will make your stay cozy and with a warm and family atmosphere.

The apartment is in a convenient area to access all the most famous attractions of Venice (from Piazza San Marco, with its marvelous Basilica, to the modern art exhibition of the Biennale).

The apartment is just 5 minutes from San Marco, 5 minutes from San Zaccaria, 1 minute from Santa Maria Formosa, 8 minutes from Rialto and much more.

Near there are many pubs and restaurants.

Very important: it is in the center of Venice, but it is absolutely in a quiet and peaceful area.

Below the apartment there is a cafeteria, a pastry shop and a refined restaurant with typical Venetian cuisine.

In the immediate vicinity we also find: a self-service laundry (H 24), a baker's, a greengrocer's, ice-cream shop , various shops and cicchetterie.

Just 30 meters away you can visit the famous "Grimani" history palace and the famous and ancient Malipiero Palace

Just 50 meters away is the Piazza (Campo) of Santa Maria Formosa with its famous Basilica.

Just 200 meters away there is a large Market-Coop always open continuously.

At only 150 meters there is the main station of the Vaporetti di San Zaccaria - San Marco. It is the most important crossroads because from here, all the Vaporetti arrive and depart for every direction, including for the airport.

The beach (Lido) can be reached in just 10 minutes.

ADVICE TO ARRIVE TO THE APARTMENT:

A) - TRAIN (SANTA LUCIA)

If you arrive by TRAIN (Santa Lucia Station) you have to take the Vaporetto LINEA 2B which runs every 10 minutes in front of the station.

The Vaporetto will cross the magnificent Grand Canal and in just 10 minutes you will be in Rialto

In Rialto, when you go down, I will be there to take you to the apartment with a short walk of 5 - 10 minutes.

 

B) - BY CAR (PIAZZALE ROMA)

If you arrive by CAR to the station of Piazzale Roma (close to that of the trains) you have to deposit the car in a municipal parking fee, or park a few kilometers before (near the airport) or near the train station in Mestre city, where there are large cheaper parking.

From there, take the bus or train to Venice that will take you to Piazzale Roma or Santa Lucia train station.

(From Piazzale Roma or from the railway station do everything as explained in point A).

IMPORTANT SUGGESTION: every ACTV line VAPORETTO ride costs 7 euros, I would advise you to buy the Tourist Travel Card (ACTV) based on your days of stay.

It is very convenient and saves time and money. You can move with the Linea water bus, where you want and how many times you want and also take the ACTV Line bus (Venezia-Mestre-Airport).

C) - AIRPORT (3 solutions)

1 - From the Airport the furthest way to get directly to the flat is to take a Taxi-boat

that will take you in just 25 minutes, through the Lagoon, directly in Campo SANTA MARIA FORMOSA, very close to the apartment (50 meters).

It costs about 100-110 euros each trip: for example if you are 4, you will divide 20-25 euros each.

P.S. You have to ask the driver to bring you to Campo Santa Maria Formosa.

The Taxi-boat will stop behind the church of Santa Maria Formosa.

or

2 - From the airport you can take the bus (or a taxi-car) and go to the Piazzale Roma station and then do everything as in point A).

or

3 - From the airport (RECOMMENDED) another convenient solution, less fast, but a little cheaper (16 Euro person), is to take the ALILAGUNA LINEA BLU vaporetto and get to SAN ZACCARIA (San Marco) very close to the apartment (150 meters).

You can also book online.

 P.S. I will wait for you at the stop you will choose:

(Rialto, San Zaccaria or Campo Santa Maria Formosa).

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have picked a better property for our stay. The location was perfect with many conveniences close by. Great jumping off point to go and explore Venice. We found ourselves In the heart of Venice and yet with cozy, stylish, and private flat to retire to after exploring the island. Completely updated and well maintained, the property was a blend of old Venice charm with contemporary amenities. All was as advertised and exceeded our expectations. Ornello, after meeting us and leading us to the flat, explained about the function and use of all items we would be using and needing right down to the boots and umbrellas they provided. And while I'm on that subject, they provided nearly everything but the food and wine and even a little of that. This property allows you to live like the Venetians did/do for the time your there. Bravo to Ornello and his family!

Our Many Thanks,

Michael and Christine

Owner's Response: Dear Michael and Christine I am very happy to receive your beautiful compliments. Thank you for the beautiful review and I want to also emphasize mine on you: you are a wonderful couple, simple and very polite. I'm sorry for the rainy weather but it has given you the charm of the high water of Venice. Venice is beautiful with sun, rain and cold. Venice is unique and you are rare. Thank you. I hope to see you again soon. Nello and family

Wonderful, beautifully updated and well located ap

  • 5 of 5

This property is wonderful. The location is excellent, out of the crowds but very convenient to both Rialto and St Marks. Couldn't be better. We stayed for a week. We loved the big bedrooms, modern baths and large closet. The armoire in the second bedroom is more than adequate. Everything is modernized and well equipped. The owner meets you and takes you to the apartments. He gives you a thorough tour including tips on the surrounding area with all th convenient restaurants and shopping. There are wonderful welcoming gifts. We could not have been happier and will definitely return.

Beautiful apartment, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Ornello met us at the valporetto stop and even helped us with our luggage to the apartment. Upon arrival, there was bottled water, a bowl filled with every kind of fruit you can imagine and a delightful assortment of Italian candy as well as basic groceries for a few days. The location was superb, right in between Rialto Bridge and San Marco Square, a close walk to both. The apartment is even nicer than the pictures, beds comfortable and exquisite bathrooms. We were there over the Christmas holiday and enjoyed the market and festive food. On my next visit to Venice, we are staying here again!! Grazie, Ornello for a wonderful visit to Venice.

Great Place and One Happy Owner

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived in Venice, Ornello met us off the vaporetto and gave us a very quick overview of the neighborhood and we then followed him towards his apartment into the labyrinth. When we arrived, he was so proud of the improvements he had made to the apartment and we knew he had really thought out the details. The apartment was nicely furnished and had beautiful bathrooms. With close proximity to the Rialto Bridge and the Piazza San Marco, yet tucked away off a small side street, this was a great location. Orrello left a beautiful tray of fruit, chocolates and wine for us to enjoy upon our arrival. I would have loved to share my wine with this man because he has such a great personality. We were there during the aquero alto (the high tide) and there is a lot of flooding in Venice. In the closet there were boots to wade through the water and an umbrella in the event of rain. Nothing was amiss. The kitchen is well equipped and the only thing missing was a can opener which we left for future guests. You get a lot of value when you stay at Casa Grande. Feeling very fortunate.

Excellent apartment highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a great place! Far exceeded expectations. The apartment is more beautiful than pictures. Ornello met us near the apartment, gave us a tour of the accommodations, and had some unexpected treats waiting for us. He also gave us good recommendations where to eat nearby. Great central location, as others mentioned. It is truly less than a 10 minute walk to San Marco and Rialto. I would highly recommend and would stay there again without hesitation. Ornello, thank you for making our trip to Venezia so memorable. Cheers!
