Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This original apartment was planned by an architect in a quiet lane close to one of the main streets in Venice, within Campo San Polo - one of the most famous and large squares in Venice - and it is 5 minutes walk from the famous RIALTO BRIDGE.

In Campo San Polo there is the 'Querini Dubois Palace' an excellent example of Venetian Renaissance architecture, today used as a cultural Centre also for the Film festival organization. During that event in September, St. Polo’s square becomes a moving picture theatre every evening. The apartment is really only a few minutes walk from the public water bus (called 'vaporetto' line 1 SAN STAE), and it is situated near Rialto, the oldest area of Venice historic centre in a centuries old building, on the 2nd floor (North American designation, 1st European).

The entrance is through an independent door and stairs used by two apartments, with earthenware floor and original wooden beam ceilings. It offers very easy access to all the city attractions (only a short walk (15 min. - to St. Mark’s square!). Moreover, in the same district you can find 'Basilica dei Frari' a wonderful church full of historical vestiges, including Canova’s grave.

The apartment is perfect for a couple on a romantic holiday, as it offers warmth, privacy, and the comfort of the most central position you could wish for! But also, the apartment can be the perfect, comfortable and convenient base to explore Venice's beauty and discover its alleys, canal, sights - restaurants, bars and Bacari or osterie (characteristic and historic Venetian wine bars with daily SPRITZ. Meeting place where it is possible to eat small fried food and have a chat with friends or even strangers).

Shop and market are round the corner and just in a few steps you are at the fish market 'La Pescaria' famous all over the world (fish, fruit and vegetable). Moreover, only in a short distance from the apartment, you can find some of the most typical and characteristic Venetian restaurants, very interesting for the various gastronomic proposals and for the different service and rates, such as: DA FIORE, one of the most exclusive restaurants in Italy, suitable to very high standard dinner; ANTICHE CARAMPANE, Venetian cuisine, high level, very quiet in a charming corner, VECIO FRITOLIN an old and marvellous tavern in Calle della Regina (Rialto), meeting place for artists and, in a short way away close to them, AL NONO RISORTO for a dinner in the garden; in Campo St. Polo BIRRARIA LA CORTE pizza-restaurant and characteristic Venetian cuisine. While, for visitors of the Biennal Exhibition gardens, AL DIPORTO at St. Elena’s island offers typical dishes and is attended by Venetians.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tolle Oase in fantastischer Stadt

Kirsten&Axel Hamburg

Bewertung wurde gespeichert: 14. November 2010 Reisezeitraum: November 2010

Die Wohnung liegt zentral, aber doch außerhalb des großen Gewühls. Verkehrsgünstig, ca. 5-10 Fußminuten zur nächsten Vaporettostation. Das Dampferchen haben wir viel benutzt, dafür ist die Venice-Card sehr hilfreich. In fußläufiger Entfernung ist auch der täglich (außer sonntags) stattfindende Markt.

Die Küche ist für eine Ferienwohnung ausgesprochen gut ausgestattet. Da macht es Spaß, das vom Markt Mitgebrachte zuzubereiten. Die Dusche, stimmungsvoll in blaues Licht getaucht, liefert zuverlässig heißes Wasser, und der Wasserdruck übertrifft deutlich das, was wir bislang aus Mittelmeerländern gewöhnt waren. Bei Novemberwetter waren wir froh über die gut funktionierende Heizung. Zu allem Überfluss ist die Wohnung auch noch richtig hübsch; ein angenehmer Rückzugsort nach anstrengenden Besichtigungstouren.

Der Vermieter Enrico ist nicht nur besonders herzlich und vielsprachig; er gab uns auch tolle Empfehlungen zum Essengehen und Einkaufen.

Für unsere Bedürfnisse war diese Wohnung ideal. Beim nächsten Venedigurlaub werden wir sie gerne wieder mieten.

Empfohlen für: Reisende 55+, Urlauber ohne Auto, Kulturinteressierte, Familien mit Teenagern, Romantikurlaub

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Enrico's lovely apartment. It was clean and comfortable with great views of a beautiful Venetian garden and a canal. You can hear the birds singing and once or twice I heard a gondolier singing too as they went by! Enrico was so kind and helpful and met us at the waterbus stop. We spent a lot of our time visiting all the Biennale events all over Venice and Enrico's hideaway was a perfect base , and so lovely to return to after a long day. I only wish we could have stayed longer but do hope to return in the future.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this warm, clean and well located apartment. Enrico was so kind and helpful throughout and made the whole booking process so easy. The apartment has such great views of a beautiful Venetian garden and the canal. I could hear the birds singing and once or twice a gondolier too, as they passed by the window. After long days walking the beautiful streets of Venice, it was a pleasure to return to this cosy retreat. We wish we could have stayed longer and hope to return one day in the future.

Perfect Venice Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This modern, clean, nicely-furnished and well-stocked apartment is tucked away from the hustle-bustle off Campo San Polo. It overlooks a quiet Canal with the occasional gondolier, and also a large walled garden so it is very private. The owner, Enrico, is very hospitable and helpful. The apartment only a 5-10 minute walk from either the San Toma or San Stae vaporetto stops. We had stayed here before and hope to return again soon. The San Polo area is quiet and residential but has excellent cafe bars, restaurants, pastry shops, and shops along most streets and Campos. The description is very accurate and does not exaggerate the amenities. We highly recommend it!

Perfect base to explore Venice

  • 5 of 5

As first time visitors to Venice for a 3 day city break, Enrico's apartment was the perfect base to explore the city.

After arriving in the evening when it was dark it was amazing to open the shutters next morning to see the canal just beneath us. The location of the apartment meant that it was easy to come back to early evening for a rest and refreshment after a long day on our feet exploring the city before heading out again for dinner.

We would recommend both the property and Enrico has host.
