“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. Our comfortable apartment provides the perfect home base for exploring the city, and a welcome respite from the crowds. It’s well stocked with everything you need for a relaxing holiday.
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 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.
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 can sleep four. There is one bathroom with a shower over the tub.
There's no elevator to this top-floor flat, but your reward for climbing the 58 steps is lovely views and fresh breezes.
We have wifi and a land line.
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?
