About Carmen & Laura
I am an architect and I put a great deal of passion in carrying out the restoration works. I saved all the original characteristics and I tried to recuperate as much as possible from the old decoration. For example the 'seminato ' floor - a kind of Venetian mosaic - was recreated according to the original pattern (but now it is perfectly even, a very rare thing in Venice!), the ceiling rafts are the old ones and have been perfectly restored, the bedrooms parquet floors are made of elm- wood., It was a great pleasure for me to restore this apartment and I would like to rent it out to people who will appreciate it and think of it as their home in Venice.
Carmen & Laura purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Carmen & Laura chose Castello
I am aware that it is not easy to rent a house in Venice where the market offers a great choice of apartments for rental. I can say that my decision to buy this apartment in spite of its higher price in respect to other flats of the same size was due to the fact that I found it had some very special and unique features: 1) the fantastic view from all the windows over the canal . You see a canal crossing where the gondolas seem to slip under the building and you feel like living on a bridge in a romantic atmosphere. 2.)f the central location a a at five minute-walk from Sa Marco square and Rialto bridge 3) the terrace 4) the apartment is on the second floor and has a magnificent view. 5) the charming history of the calle and the Paradiso arch. 6) the 'calle del Paradiso' is very quiet and it is close to ' salizzada San Lio 'where you find all kind of shops I would also like to say that the renovation was completed in 2015 and that the apartment was completely equipped with new furniture.

Perfect place to stay in Venice
This apartment is everything the listing described and then some. The apartment was comfortable, easy to use, centrally located and beautifully restored. Plus, the view onto the canal was such a treat. Venice's streets can be hard to navigate but with a good map, you can easily walk to St. Marks, the Rialto bridge and other main sights within minutes. The owners were easy to work with, answered all questions promptly and directions were clear and concise. We'd definitely stay here again and would recommend to friends.
Beautiful property in a great location.
This was a beautiful property perfect for my family of 5. Great location right in the heart of Venice with lots of food options right there.
Staff was very nice and met us at Rialto bridge to show us to the place.
All the amenities were as advertised and I would highly recommend this apartment.
My wife favorite spot was sitting in the chair by the kitchen watching the gondolas on the canal.
Oh my goodness, where do I even start? This house was FANTASTIC! Tons of room, having 2 bathrooms both with showers was a HUGE plus for my boyfriend and I. We didn't use the terrace much, as it rained most of the time, but you don't need the terrace when you have views like you have in the living room. We walked all over the entire city and I still wasn't able to find a spot that was prettier than our view out of the window. The location is absolutely PERFECT. Everything you want to see is minutes away in each direction. We took a water taxi from the airport and it drops you off right in front of the house. If you are looking for picture perfect views, this is the one for you. One little thing, bring bug repellent or buy some at the store. We got eaten alive by the mosquitoes and then had to search for anti-itch cream. By no means was this a negative nor should it stop you from renting this place, it was a small price to pay for views like that and all the room you have. Just come prepared and you'll be fine. The showers are both nice and roomy and very clean. Pour yourself a glass of wine, open the window and enjoy the sights and sounds of this slice of true paradise. My favorite part of the day was coming back home after sightseeing and watching the gondolas go by while waving to the people as they go by. What a perfect place. This will always be my go to place when visiting gorgeous Venice. It's perfect.
This property could not have been in a better location. It was close enough to be ‘in the action’ within minutes (with a good map of Venice), but far enough say to be away from the constant crowds. Carmen & Laura were fabulous to work with. Luca met our private water taxi within steps of the apartment and walked us through everything. The apartment it’s self was spacious, well equipped & clean. I HIGHLY recommend this property for your stay in Venice.
The Heart of Venice
This spacious, attractive apartment has canal views, a rooftop eating area and a perfect location. I look forward to returning!
What a great apartment! We are a family of 5 and there was plenty of space. the apartment was very clean, and comfortable. The views from the windows were great. loved looking out at the canals and watching the gondolas go by. The location of the apartment was great too. Everything was in walking distance. All the sites, shopping and restaurants. Laura and Carmen made everything so easy. Would definitely come back and stay here again!
The flat is strategically located near the museums and the theaters, at less than a 5 minute-walk from both San Marco square and Rialto bridge, close to Campo Santa Maria Formosa.
The area is one of the oldest in Venice and is full of history.
'This romantic corner of Venice with the Arch of Paradise inspired many artists, writers and photographers..
The view over the canal crossing is breathtaking from all the five windows of the apartment in all seasons and also in rainy weather,
For centuries gondolas and boats carrying all kind of goods have been passing quietly on the canals steered by the skilful boatsmen of Venice. It is the same life of old Venice going on.
The watertaxi from the airport can stop close to the apartment door, while line 1 or 2 of water bus from Roma square or Railway station stops at Rialto bridge from where you can easily wallk to the flat.
The 'calle del Paradiso' is very quiet and is close to 'salizzada San Lio' where all kind of shops and two supermarkets, with an internal butcher, can be found.
