Overview

About the property

Sleeps 4, 2 double beds

An ultra-convenient and relaxing second floor apartment, part of an antique palazzo in upmarket San Samuele - a calm and cultured neighbourhood of galleries and antique shops, well clear of the hustle and bustle yet close to Campo Santo Stefano with its inviting outdoor cafes and the Palazzo Grassi Museum of Modern Art.

Steps away from the illustrious ‘Palazzo Mocenigo’ on the Grand Canal - the one time Venetian bolthole of ‘mad, bad and dangerous to know’ British romantic poet and literary figure, Lord Byron (1788-1824), and next door to ‘Casa Veronese’ - home of the outstanding 16th Century Italian Renaissance painter, Paolo Veronese (creator of ‘Wedding at Cana’ and ‘Feast in the House of Levi’ which today hangs in the Accademia Academy of Fine Arts just across the nearby Accademia Bridge).

Ca’ Grassi 1 is peaceful, light and airy and freshly decked out in delightful colour throughout. It offers wifi internet connection and, in terms of its accommodation, comprises a spacious and tastefully furnished living/dining room, a well-equipped kitchen (stop off at the local grocery/delicatessen and wine shop for ingredients to create your own favourite dishes back at ‘home’), two comfortable double bedrooms (one large, the other more compact and both with double beds), a bathroom with bathtub and a hand held shower and a second bathroom with a spacious shower. It has been completely renewed .

Let yourself be tempted by the nearby cafes and restaurants and, when you’re ready to venture forth and explore or re-visit the city’s countless charms, you’ll find two vaporetto stops just minutes away along with two ‘Traghettos’ which, during operating times (please check before making your journey) ferry passengers by gondola across the Grand Canal – one running between Calle Del Tragheto (near Sant’ Angelo) and San Toma in the district of San Polo and the other running between San Samuele and Ca’ Rezzonico and its Museum OF 18th Century Art in Dorsoduro.

Check-in and Check-out procedures

Upon your arrival, one of our representatives will meet you at the vaporetto stop (or water taxi disembarkation point) closest to the apartment (as agreed during our prior correspondence with you) and accompany you to the property. All the information relating to your apartment such as heating, use of the kitchen and, where available, air-conditioning and internet etc. will be provided together with a welcome information file and a 24 hr emergency contact no. It is at this point that payment for the Security Deposit is taken by our representative - for further details of methods of payment etc. please see the ‘Property Rates’ section above. Standard check-in time is between 3.00 pm. and 7.30 pm. daily. (It may be possible to arrange different check-in times upon request at the time of booking. Please note that arrivals between 7.30 pm. and midnight incur a late arrival fee of €50, payable in cash upon arrival.) We kindly ask you to check out by 11.00 am in order that we may prepare the apartment for its next guests.

About Annalisa & Daniela

We’ll meet you upon your arrival in Venice, show you the ins and outs of your apartment and we are available in our central office close to Accademia to call if you need a hand.

Why Annalisa & Daniela chose San Marco

A very comfortable choice in a fabulously convenient location - - a few steps to the gallery of interior designer Chiarastella Cattana - a discreetly sophisticated showroom of fine and distinctively woven textiles and furnishings and, for scent-lovers, the Venice outlet of the famous Florentine ‘Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella’ – one of the oldest pharmacies in the world and one time fragrance maker to Catherine de’ Medici.

What makes this apartment unique

Ca’ Grassi 1 is peaceful, light and airy and freshly decked out in delightful colour throughout. It offers WI-Fi internet connection and, in terms of its accommodation, comprises a spacious and tastefully furnished living/dining room, a well-equipped kitchen (stop off at the local grocery/delicatessen and wine shop for ingredients to create your own favourite dishes back at ‘home’), two comfortable double bedrooms (one large, the other more compact and both with double beds) and two bathrooms: one with bathtub and the other one with shower.

Fantastic and wonderful time in Venice

  • 5 of 5

I recently just returned from my trip in Europe. Part of that trip was going go Venice where we stayed in San Marco. This apartment was very spacious and comfortable. Since our group was a total of 2 couples, having separate bathrooms and bedrooms was a must. Although the bed and blankets were not the most comfortable, that did not greatly affect our great time here. The location is perfect and quiet. It's a 25 second walk to the water taxi which is very useful. If the weather is nice, then I would suggest walking to your destination. Once you know your way, everything seems to be within 10 minutes. One of the best parts of this apartment is being right next to this popular wine bar/restaurant. Surprisingly, the bar is more popular than the restaurant but it's a great spot to have a few glasses of wine and really good antipasto. This was highly suggested by the apartment staff. Above all, the people who manage the apartment were extremely helpful. They arranged all of our transportation, recommended many great restaurants, and helped with any questions I had.

The only downside to this apartment is the main shower. The water pressure is pretty low. If anyone else is using the other bathroom, then it's very difficult to shower. Also if you are older, the apartment is on the 2nd floor with no elevator. We had no problems but it could be a concern for people who have trouble walking.

Quiet, large accomodation, close to Piazza San Marco

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, clean and well maintained apartment in a quiet neighborhood yet still within walking distance of restaurants and shopping, grocery store close by as well. Checking in was easy and handled very professionally. We were met by a representative who explained everything very clearly and answered all our questions. The apartment was very large, kitchen was well equipped, bathrooms roomy, bedrooms comfy. 10 minute walk to Piazza San Marco. Two vaporetto stops close by for easy access to beautiful Venezia. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Ca' Grassi was exactly as advertised and we enjoyed our stay there. The apartment is very large with high ceilings and large windows. Everything was clean and the kitchen, although small, is bright, modern and well equipped. It's location is super for sightseeing around Venice. Thank you to the staff of Views on Venice for meeting us at the waterbus stop, showing us around the flat and for the tips on getting around in Venice. Great stay!
