About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 2-6) Penthouse Canal View

This lovely penthouse is placed in a typical XVIII Venetian palace, in Santa Croce district, a central area that has been spared the flux of tourists and where you can still find the typical and honest side of the town.

The penthouse has been renovated in 2007 and lived by the owners until few years ago. That’s why you will find all the comforts you need to feel as you were at home.

Each room is bright and sunny, enjoy panoramic view on the canal and the surrounding roofs and “altanas”, the typical Venitian terraces placed on top of the buildings. Sun goes down in the living room setting a charming atmosphere.

The area:

The penthouse is only 10 min walk from the train station and 15 min from the bus station. San Stae waterbus stop is only 1 minute away without bridges to pass trough. You can enjoy your breakfast in one the many typical bars and restaurants around campo San Giacomo (1 min), visit the church - one of the oldest in the town - where there are paintings by Veronese and Lotto. The Natural History Museum and the Modern Art Museum are both 2 minute walk. Rialto fresh food market and Rialto Bridge are only 5 minute away and from there you can reach San Marco square with a 10 min lovely walk.

Owners will be pleased to suggest their guests unusual trips, to set personal chef dinner, giving advices for restaurants and shops and do every thing you need to get the best from your Venice experience.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

What a great location in this awesome city off a narrow alley and a canal. Having stayed in hotels in Italy with a family of four, it’s a relief to spread out in this multi room, two bedroom, two bathrooms apartment. We were personally greeted and shown to the apartment straight from the water taxi. Giorgia gave us a great tour of the city the following day – giving us the lay of the land with the background information to appreciate it. And we can’t say enough about having air conditioning and laundry and a kitchen so that you can relax, be comfortable and make every day count. It’s hard to have a bad location in the city because everything is so walk able – but having the peace and quiet of being in a neighborhood is key to this great experience. We definitely recommend!

Fantastic Apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a few nights with my family of 4. The apartment has everything we needed and was very comfortable.

The location is very nice with so many very good places to eat within a very short walking distance.

We also had Giorgia take us on two wonderful tours. She is fantastic to work with.

We would stay here again when we come back to Venice.

Real Venice

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. The neighborhood was less touristy than most and relatively quiet. We enjoyed the maze of getting to the apartment, though without Google Maps, I never would have found my way back! Some local places we enjoyed were Majer in the morning for cappuccino and pastries and La Zucca for dinner. The location of the apartment was about 10-15 minutes walk to all the famous sites. It was a fun walk with lots to see. You can also grab the ferry, which is just a minute away. We really enjoyed our tour with Giorgia. She is very knowledgeable about Venice culture and wine and a fun companion.
