Arts, culture, museums, Biennale, history, romance ... Venice has so much to offer! Around the corner, Fortuny Palace, one of the largest palaces in the city that houses in its first floor a famous museum. Two minutes walk far away, there's Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo, famous because of its spiral staircase.

Further, the apartment is located exactly between the two biggest and most important theaters of Venice, Teatro La Fenice and Teatro Goldoni.

About Cecilia

We are a venetian family. My husband is architect and I take care of our two children, who are (pre)schoolers.

Cecilia purchased this studio in 2002

Why Cecilia chose San Marco

My husband inherited this small but cozy apartment from his beloved uncle and has directed its renewal by himself.

The flat is easy accessible because it's very close to the waterbus station (only two bridges away). It is on the raised ground floor, just two steps and you're in!

Good Location in Venice

  • 3 of 5

The Design Apartment worked well for what we needed in Venice. We were there for only 3 nights after ending a cruise. The location is good: it's a 5 minute walk from the nearest water bus stop, it's very quiet (on a narrow street with very little foot traffic), and it's only a 15 minute (or so) walk to St. Mark's, etc. Also there is a grocery less than 5 minutes away, and there are several restaurants nearby also.

The kitchen supplies were adequate though you probably wouldn't want to rely on them for a 2 or 3 week stay. By the nature of the layout of the apartment (closed in by other buildings and on the ground floor), it was fairly dark and had a feeling of being "enclosed." There was a very bright light in the kitchen area that helped a lot with that problem, but two of the lights in the bedroom did not work so that area was always in continual twilight. That was good for sleeping but not so great for the rest of the day. The shower worked well, and the bathroom was fairly large by European standards. Some additional shelf space in the bathroom would be great. Also there was a washing machine, but we were not there long enough to use it.

Cecilia was very easy to deal with. She answered every email we sent very quickly and was kind enough to let us drop our luggage off in the apartment because we arrived well before check-in time.

This was our first time in Venice so we went in "blind" when we chose this apartment. Overall we feel like we made a good choice. It worked fine for what we needed for a brief stay.

Nice apartment centrally located

  • 4 of 5

This apartment in Venice was in a perfect location for walking around Venice and seeing the sites. The apartment was clean and well appointed with all enmities needed. The area was very safe and was easy to get to from the train station by water bus. Cecilia was helpful and answered all inquiries promptly. Would recommend this apartment for your stay in Venice.

I was enchanted by Venice and this apartment contribute so much to the experience. The location is great, so close to everything within walking distance. It is also very close to the Sant Angelo vapoertto stop. The apartment is very comfortable and provided a relaxing refuge after a day of sightseeing. The windows overlooking the next door courtyard garden provided light and a sense of what is behind closed doors when you walk down the alleyways of Venice. Cecilia was very accommodating. Our train from Florence was delayed, but Cecilla left instructions for us and how to access the apartment. I absolutely love Venice. I look forward to returning and hopefully staying at this apartment again. Thanks Cecilia for providing such a lovely apartment.

From a frequent American visitor to Venice

  • 5 of 5

Wow!! Cecilia is by far the best property manager we have ever had in a dozen years of short-term apartment rentals in various countries. Her English is excellent, and she is incredibly attentive to the smallest request. Our rental in Venice was for two weeks. We would go back there for our next visit. The only suggestion for improvement is that it would be nice to have higher wattage bulbs in the living room for reading. (The bedroom lighting is fine.)

Perfect apartment for 2 close to many sites

  • 4 of 5

My husband, baby and I stayed in this apartment for 4 nights. It is less than 5 minutes from the Sant'Angelo Vaporetto stop and about a 10 minute walk from St. Mark's Square. There are restaurants, cafes, and a grocery store within a few minutes walk. The apartment itself was perfect for 2 plus a baby, and Cecelia was always quickly available by SMS for any questions or concerns. The apartment was clean and tidy with a good size bedroom, living room, and kitchen, as well as a small bathroom and washing machine. The apartment was basic in amenities, but it is ideal if you are looking for an apartment in a great location to spend the night, while you spend your days wandering Venice.
