Venice apartment description

“If you read a lot, nothing is as great as you’ve imagined. Venice is—Venice is better.”
~ Fran Lebowitz


After a long day of exploring in Venice, imagine what a pleasure it will be to return home to your own apartment in Castello, La Serenissima’s most authentic neighborhood. You’ll get a taste of the real Venice while enjoying a can’t-miss location.

The apartment is one building back from the Riva dei Sette Martiri, a wide, sunny walkway that runs along the waterfront all the way to St. Mark’s Square, just 10 minutes from your door, but a world away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist track. It's a short, picturesque walk to Venice’s major sights, as well as some of the city’s lesser-known charms, and close to both the Arsenale and Giardini vaporetto stops.

Our quiet, light-filled apartment has a comfortable and efficient floor plan. The apartment is about 600 square feet.

The spacious “matrimoniale” bedroom features a romantic canopy bed, a desk, and lots of storage for your clothes. There’s a small room that can be used as an office or a small single bedroom, and a little loft, accessed by a spiral staircase, with a desk, some games, and bookshelves full of guidebooks and novels… a perfect nook to hide out and read.

The airy open kitchen and living room area are perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine while your dinner simmers on the stove. The kitchen has good pans and knives, a four-burner stove, refrigerator and freezer, microwave, and a dishwasher. Everything you need to prepare meals is at hand, once you're done shopping for fresh fish and produce, either at the famous Rialto market or the local markets on nearby Via Garibaldi, where you'll find all the local shops and services you need. The living room couch also folds out to a double bed, so the apartment could sleep up to five, though it’s really better suited to no more than four. There is one bathroom with a shower over the tub.

The top-floor flat is up 58 steps, with no elevator, and boasts lovely views from every window. On one side, you overlook a quiet, green park and see all the way to the Lido. Watch boats plying the waters by the bell tower and cathedral on San Giorgio Maggiore and glimpse Santa Maria della Salute, visible in the distance from the bedroom and the loft.

No need to be out of touch (unless you want to be!): There is a telephone (you’ll need a calling card for long-distance calls). And there is high-speed wifi in the too (though you need to bring your own computer).

Please note that we have a three-night minimum stay requirement and we do not make exceptions.

Marcel Proust wrote “When I went to Venice, my dream became my address.” So why not find yourself at home in Venice?

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: We fell in love with Venice many years ago, and long dreamed of living here.

                      Why the Owner Chose Venice:
                      Charles Dickens summed it up well: 'Nothing in the world that you ever heard of Venice is equal to the magnificent and stupendous reality.' Owning a home here was the realization of our dream.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      Our neighborhood is non-touristy, so you can sample Venetian life. Walk along the waterfront, stroll through the gardens, or stop at one of the terrific local stores for fresh product, handmade pasta, or some of the best gelato in town -- all without battling crowds. We consistently hear from people who have stayed in our apartment how much they love the neighborhood.
