The flat is close to a very useful baker for the daily bread, milk and croissant while the supermarket is about 200 mt away. It is an area rich in bars and restaurants, but despite being an area of great artistic interest is not too crowded.

There are two balconies on the canal from where you can see the Gran Canal and the house which was once Lord Byron’s, it is a very picturesque corner. The sitting room benefits from original beams, has comfortable divans and in the morning the sun light floods in. The kitchen has a large fridge and it is well equipped (also for cooking lessons).

Floor carpets are in red brick colour. The two bedrooms look out onto the pictoresque campiello San Toma' from where you can see the ancient Frari belltower.
