A Jewel in theVenetian Crown
A Jewel in theVenetian Crown
This is a wonderful place to stay in Venice. The apartment is excellent: very large with just 1 bedroom, a big kitchen, 2 large bathrooms , lounge dining room with windows looking down on 2 canals and a romantic bridge. This is a quiet area with the only noise being that of gondoliers singing as they make their way along the canals. A retreat from the craziness and milling tourists at St Marks. At night there is a gondola sleeping below. An experience like this can't be bought. This is where the Venetians live and is away from the craziness of the tourists but so clse to everything.....it's a few mins walk . An excellent location. It is on the 2nd floor of a beautiful, private Venetian appartment house.You enter through a beautiful iron gate into a small garden and then climb a marble staicase to the 2nd Floor. The neighbours are very quiet aslso. The furniture is not IKEA and is quality, especially in the bedroom even though it d from the 60s. This is an apartment with class. And it is so quiet. The kitchen is well equipped with a washer and dryer in one and the Internet was so fast. There is an Alimentari a few mins walk away so you can eat in.. It looks at the back of the famous Fenice Opera Theatre, recently restored after the fire. One night we heard the singers warming up before a performance and watched the glitterati arrive by water taxi. Our closest Piazzas was St Angelo and San Stefano 2 mins walk. These were quieter and had good restaurants. Local people walked their dogs and relaxed so it was good to be away from the crowds. It is situated close to everything but it is exceptionally large for an apartment especially for Venice. When booking from Australia I wanted to be close to St Marks, however when we got there we were so pleased to be in this glorious oasis of serenity. I couldn't get away from the crowds quickly enough. Our friends stayed in a very classy hotel near St Marks but wished they were in our apartment......you get an opportunity to see how Venetians live and it's spacious something you don't get in hotels. We will return for a month to see Venice slowly and quietly from this wonderful apartment. Matteo and his team were very professional. We had a problem with the hot water and it was fixed within a few hours. He was a wonderful person to rent an apartment from and we look forward to doing this again. Also we had a car and parked it at Tronchetto and caught the vaporetto which was easy.
