Why Owner/Manager chose San Polo
Live and study in the heart of Venice is unique and wonderful experience in the world. If I should die and be born again, I pray my weavy body would awake in Venice in this flat on the canal, with the toll of bells and lapping gondola sway. My God, it is alost heaven. Zac (S. C, CA)

Simply couldn't ask for a better place! Enrico so friendly and helpful, loved the personal greeting at the water bus stop. Location great, away from the tourist heavy zone but yet so easy to get around. CLEAN apartment!!! And the view.... seriously I loved having wine by the window watching the gondalas go by!
Enrico was wonderful from the moment our reservation was confirmed. He responded with a personal message right away. Prior to check in he contacted us with instructions and a meeting point on the Grand Canal. Enrico personally welcomed us is a very warm and friendly manner and even gave us a gift from his home city, Modena. He and his wife were very gracious hosts.
The apartment was completely stocked with towels, linens, umbrellas, washing machine, kitchen utensils and equipment and some basic cooking items. There were many travel guides available for use. His suggestions were spot on - good and bad!
The apartment is wonderful and is directly across from a lovely garden so you can enjoy green space right within the city center. There are screens on the windows so they can be open without bugs or birds flying in.
The location was great and just a short walk to the Rialto bridge and the market.
Defiantly will return!
Enrico's apartment was everything we hoped for! Very comfortable and nicely appointed with everything to make you feel at home.
Staying in a quiet neighborhood was a great experience. We could sit at the window and watch gondolas passing below. In the evening we enjoyed having the windows open to a really private area. Highly recommend this property!
Dear family Ganger.
Many thanks for your kind visita. I Hope to accomodate you again.
Beautiful place, Enrico is great
A very private beautiful apartment. Secret Garden and small canal views created a peaceful quiet place to recharge and rest after busy days.
Well equipped and pleasant. Enrico is charming and informative. Pleasant stay all around
Dear Tim and Teresa,
many thanks for your kind words, I hope to accommodate you again.
A treasure of an apartment with a central location
This tastefully designed, well appointed and well maintained apartment, just off the Campo San Polo enjoys enchanting views: from the bedroom window, an attractive wooded property from which birdsong can be heard in the morning, and from the kitchen and living room area a picturesque canal, where gondolas sometimes pass.
Enrico, the host, is a warm and helpful person, who responds quickly to any questions asked by email. Once in Venice, you will be met by him and accompanied to the apartment, where he takes care and time to give you all the practical information you need. He is readily available by phone or email for further questions.
He has taken care to create a binder with much information about local sights, recommended restaurants, and Venice in general. There are generous cooking utensils, some spices and food staples, and excellent appliances in the spacious kitchen area.
It is a short walk on a commercial street with many stores selling food and other items to the outdoor vegetable and fish markets, and to the Rialto Mercato vaporetto stop (easy ride to the Train Station) and a traghetto crossing. The Rialto Bridge is a short distance away by foot or vaporetto (Rialto stop).
There are a number of good restaurants close by including one right on Campo San Polo, Birraria La Corte. The highly recommended Antiche Carampane is not far.
The apartment has a short flight of steps that are easy to navigate. It can be easily reached with a suitcase from the San Silvestro vaporetto stop and a short walk, with only one small bridge to cross.
I stayed in this apartment in 2015, also. I will continue to stay here when I return to Venice, because I love it here.
My dear Mary Jane,
I thank you very much for your kind words, and hope to meet you again in my little Retreat and wish you all best .
Best regards and "Tanti cari saluti from the mysterious Lady Venezia".
A secret haven in the heart of Venice
Enrico’s ‘secret hideaway’ near Rialto is an absolute gem. In a 300 year old building the apartment has been renovated to a very high standard and equipped with everything one could possibly need. The views from the window of an old garden with lush greenery and amazing birdsong and the canals with passing gondolas add great charm.
The position just round the corner from Campo San Polo (literally 10 metres/yards), is the geographical centre of Venice, so wonderfully convenient for going anywhere.
All communication with the owner from first to last contact was prompt and incredibly helpful, including where to visit and the best places to eat. There were pamphlets on every activity supplied in the apartment. Enrico was the perfect host.
We have been to Venice 4 times in the last 6 years and we thoroughly enjoyed our 9 days here. We would not think of staying elsewhere.
Many thanks for your Kind workshop about my little retreat near Campo San Polo.
I Hope to meet you again in the Serenissima. A big kiss for New Zealand. Enrico
