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

Genuine Venetian Experience

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Enrico's Hideaway is an excellent way to experience living in Venice. We didn't appreciate how authentic it was until we saw the crowds of people in the more touristy parts of the city. At Enrico's you feel like you are truly a resident. The apartment is ucked away in a quieter, more residential area. It is fully appointed and nicely updated with everything you'd need and reflects the love that Enrico has for his home and his city. It has delightful views of a secret garden and, best of all, a soothing canal right below the window from which you can watch people truly live their lives on the water. Enrico is a real gentleman and a helpful host and even surprised us with a gift of Italian vinegar and a music CD. He has lots of information to help orient you to this most unusual place. Plan on getting lost. But at least you'll have a lovely, relaxing place to come home to.

Nice apartment with beautiful canal views

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very nicely located right along a canal with gondolas passing by! The host Enrico was very kind and met us at the water stop close by the apartment when we arrived and was always quick to respond to inquiries.

Perfect retreat!

  • 5 of 5

From Enrico's clear instructions about how to get to the water taxi stop near the apartment and his warm, personal greeting at the stop, we could not have asked for more! Enrico walked us to the apartment and took the time to show us everything we needed to know and left extremely helpful maps, water taxi schedules and restaurant recommendations. The apartment was perfect for us - a very quiet, well equipped retreat after a busy day in Venice.

Thank you, Enrico!

Great location really quite at night

  • 5 of 5

Great location and the place had all you needed. We did not cool but you could have. The really great thing was it was right on a small canal and looked into a garden not a wall of another building. Great host and great value
