About the property

1 Bedr, 1 Livingr, 1 Kich, 1 Bathr, (Sleeps 4+1), Wifi, Ac,, Full opt

This 'apartment' is really an independent house (dates from the 17th century), with separate entrance. Its exterior and interior were recently restored, with care taken to conserve its original characteristics. The home is sited in a corner of Campo San Barnaba, one of the most suggestive and picturesque place of Venice, in the artist quarter, near Accademia.

Our apartment is really one minute from the vaporetto stop of Cà Rezzonico (sited in the 'centre' of Canal Grande in front of Palazzo Grassi, near the Accademia bridge), from which you can reach both Rialto and San Marco in around five minutes. The quarter offers cultural activities and characteristic spots that also stay open late in the evening. At the same time, it is a tranquil and relaxing place, without the usual bustle of tourists.

The house, very nice as I told above, and well lighted, consists of two floors. The first floor includes the entrance, the kitchen/dining area and a bathroom with shower. The second floor offers a living room with a comfortable double bed sofa and television with a satellite connection and a master sleeping room (with one double bed and one single small for child, so there are five bed places). The house has an independent heating system for winter and an air conditioning system for summer.

The kitchen is well equipped with new appliance: gas stove, a large refrigerator, a microwave oven and grill, dishwasher, and washing machine. In the living room and in the bedroom there are two large closet, a work desk.

The house has it's own telephone and an ADSL (high speed) internet line with a Wi-fi router.

convenient stay

  • 4 of 5

Antonio was a nice host - he met us at the apartment and walked us through how to use it. He also has a manual on how to use electronic items in the home. For the rest of the stay, he was accessible but it often took up to several hours for him to get back to us.

The apartment was VERY clean and has many nice touches and details. Antonio has also fully stocked it with many thoughtful items such as umbrellas for when it rains. The master bedroom is two twin beds joined so my husband and I converted the sofa bed and used that - it was very comfortable.

The main reason we would give it a 4 instead of 5 is that size of the apartment is significantly smaller than what the photos suggest. The bathroom and kitchen were very small, in particular. That being said, I believe it may be an average size for Venice...just not what we had anticipated from the pictures.

Also, it was great to have access to a washing machine - Antonio also had detergent, clothes pins and a rack so we were able to comfortably do laundry. A word of warning to Americans - the machines there are different! It took us a while to figure it out but it worked fine once we did.

The location is close to many restaurants, very close to the Ca' Rezzonico water bus station but is also quiet at night. The apartment is not along the water but not far from a canal. It was approximately a 15-20 minute walk from the train station to the apartment or a 25 minute ride on the water bus.

Quaint and cozy old-world Venetian apartment

  • 4 of 5

Small but quaint and cozy in a wonderful little neighborhood with plenty of good restaurants and fresh produce close by. Only a short walk from the Ca Rezzonica vaparetto stop. The host was extremely helpful and very nice. He even stocked coffee and tea for us. Everything you would need for cooking was available in the kitchen, but we preferred the restaurants. We really enjoyed this little place except that we used the pull out bed and in order to have a comfortable place to sit and relax, we would have had to close up the sofa bed. (The kitchen chairs are hard-backed.) If you are a couple sleeping in the same bed or otherwise do not have to use the sofa bed, you would have a nice little living room. By the way, the sofa bed was very comfy to sleep on. The regular bed was not as great.

Antonio showed us the way to the property & from there it was so easy to navigate all around Venice! The apt was perfect for 3 people- felt safe & secure, loads of cafes & grocery, etc, right in the adjacent squares. Would stay again!

Ideal location for exploring Venice

  • 5 of 5

A quieter part of Venice with less tourists than San Marco , the property is ideally located within easy reach of the water bus, but walking is no problem to Rialto bridge or St Marks square just don't forget to take a map! The property has air conditioning so was ideal to pop back to now and again to cool down. A useful range of cooking appliances and utensils, so self catering not a problem. A Conad supermarket is only a short walk away with excellent prices and a good range of food. This property is ideal for a couple with the option of a sofa to make into another bed. The only thing missing was a few wine glasses! Antonio met us at the water bus and took us to the property and was very helpful ,an excellent host. To summarise a quaint Venetian property in a good location,highly recommended.

Delighted first time vacation renters

  • 5 of 5

Our gracious host Antonio and his team have created a comfortable apartment in a terrific location. All the neccesities are provided. Groceries, cafe's, wine bars, and excellent restaurants are within several blocks. Many artists have their studios here so the shopping for locally made goods is wonderful. No hesitation in recommending this rental.
