Castle 6213 - Venice Luxury (property ID 1691692)
This HomeAway accommodation was clean, safe, and comfortable. There was plenty of room for six of us; it featured three bathrooms and lovely decor. It's steps away from the canal at Ponte Minich and central to several piazzas and restaurants.
Overall, the stay there was more than satisfactory. Many thanks.
Beautiful spacious apartment. Just far enough away to not feel like you were in the tourist zone but close to everything. Wonderful stay
Had a great 2 night stay in Venice. The property is in a great location and easy to find. There were 6 of us and the apartment was more than adequate. Would definitely stay there again.
A spacious flat with a really helpful manager. But a few downsides
A great apartment, with all of the necessities with the exception of air conditioning. The managers daughter was at the landing when our taxi arrived, so getting in and becoming acquainted were quite easy. As noted the lack of air conditioning in the summer months is a bit of a drawback, as you need to leave windows open to keep air circulating. Since the flat is right on the canal at a loading area for deliveries to local restaurants and stores, the supply barges started arriving around 6 or earlier. (I have photos) Additionally, they are currently renovating the first floor, so if you did get back to sleep after the delivery, the jackhammers will have you awake at 7. If you are a light sleeper and want to sleep in, this isn't the best place. Other than this we would recommend this flat.
Lovely apartment in central venice
What a beautiful CLEAN apartment that is close many restaurants, gelato shops ,fresh fruit and vegetable stands. My son spent so much time looking out the window watching the boats and gondolas go by. The apartment is well stocked with every need including coffee, sugar, basic spices, olive oil and viniger. About a 7 minute walk to st marco square and the grand canal
If I will do it over we would
Take a private water taxi to the Ponte Minich stop. About a 45 second walk to the apartment. We took the public water bus and had to walk about 20 minutes from the closest stop pulling luggage up and down quite few bridges and it was NO FUN!!! If you take a private taxi it was 80 euros total and the public boat was 15 euros each. We were a group of 7 so cheaper and zero stress.
Know that for Google maps punch in" calle trevisana o cicogna" 6213.
Very hot in June even with the many provided fans for the apartment.
Great vacation-- Will stay longer if I ever get back
This apartment is, indeed, spacious. However, I do not consider it to be comfortable. The furniture was all very hard. The bathrooms were less than adequate. There were not enough towels provided. Most importantly, the owner should absolutely provide a map to find it! We dragged our luggage around for more than half an hour before finally stumbling upon it. When we inquired of locals as to where it was located, we got the response to turn in the first "gallery". Gallery?? What the heck were they referring to? Apparently, they meant the first little "street", or alleyway. Totally frustrating. Venice is charming, but not for the less-abled such as myself. The constant bridges to be crossed over all the small side canals were extremely difficult, as each bridge consisted of going up six or seven steps, then down the steps on the other side. I was exhausted! Not this property owner's fault -- just my comment on Venice in general.
The Sestiere of Castle is the largest and most populous of all of Venice. It is located at the eastern end of the city and Comparing Venice to a fish Castle Represents the tail.
It is bordered to the west by the districts of San Marco and Cannaregio, while in all other sides it is bounded by the Venice Lagoon. It is the only district of Venice not to overlook the Grand Canal.
Even the district of Castello, like that of San Marco, Has a history several centuries That Began in August It derivates ITS name from a fort this island of San Pietro in Castello (once called the island of Olivolo).
The district is rich in history and monuments to admire, some examples are Given from the Arsenale and the Basilica of San Pietro di Castello. Also inside are the main pavilions of the Venice Biennale. It is a very characteristic area of the city and 'Venetian', you can not leave Venice without first having done a walk through ITS streets.
