Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Historic San Marco Penthouse Apartment is the perfect location for your holiday: here you will have the possibility to spend your Venetian days in a unique and fascinating location. 

This large, airy and bright, non-smoking apartment is located on the third (last) floor, in a 500 year old architecturally-significant Palazzo. 

Renovated by a famous architect, the apartment is designed to create different spaces within it's wide open area: the wide living area with couch, chaise longues and armchairs; two cozy spaces with desks; a fully-equipped gourmand kitchen; a TV/Reading corner with a queen size sleep sofa and opposite a corner that accommodates two single beds (which can be pushed together to function as a King bed). 

The master bedroom with Queen bed is totally separated from other spaces and is located in the opposite side, compared to the position of the single beds.

The penthouse has two complete bathrooms: one with a shower and one with a tub (we did renovations in March 2014).

The apartment is equipped with all the modern comforts and facilities ,including air conditioning (Central Air Unit controllable in 4 zones), independent heating, free wifi internet connection, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave oven...

In this very unusual and spacious Venetian property, very quite and silent, you have the possibility to relax after an exciting day and also take small daily breaks since it's literally within steps of the most popular sights, shops, and restaurants in San Marco.

Thanks to its central location you can easily reach Piazza San Marco and the Basilica, the Doge’s Palace and the Bridge of Sighs in a few minutes walk. You'll have the opportunity to visit the monuments in the early morning, when they are not too crowded or you can be enchanted by the magic of Piazza San Marco in the night, with the orchestras playing. From the penthouse in 5-10 minutes walking you reach Rialto, Academia, Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Piazza Santo Stefano, etc.

In the immediate neighborhood you'll find a souvenir shop, pharmacy, pâtisserie, newspaper stand, coffee shop, good restaurant and bars, little grocery shop, fruit and vegetable shop, and also all the high fashion shops of the best Italian labels, that are located in this area of Venice.

The apartment is perfect for short or long term stays.

Breathtakingly Sunning

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous penthouse quickly became our "home" in Venice. Its unique spacious architectural design allows for a relatively big group to live very comfortably with one another while simultaneously providing a warm, comfy environment that brings the family closer. It is also conveniently located very close to the San Marco plaza, and the view from the windows were spectacular. Staying here was truly a delight for all of us, and we hope to come back!

Gorgeous Apartment in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The Penthouse is beautiful, with every detail well thought out. It was perfect for our family of four. It has all modern comforts despite being an historic property, and is immaculate. The location is spectacular, just a short alleyway to shops and restaurants. It is right around the corner from Piazza San Marco, the vaporetto, Alilaguna (boat to airport), etc. Camilla and Bernadette were so helpful and offered great suggestions. We would definitely stay again.

Great property with lots of room

  • 4 of 5

Was a great property. We were a family of 4 and had tons of room with all amentities in working order. Best a/c we've haD in our travels. We were met upon arrival with no issues. Property was located close to the water taxis, etc and was very centrally located to great shopping, restaurants and San Marco.

The Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

As said in previous reviews the apartment is spectacular! A penthouse that will love up to your dreams. The stairs are a chore each day after shopping and too much food and wine. But the view, and the architecture! The host is glorious, she was very helpful and provided a contact number to text/call. She answered within 5 minutes. Very accommodating.

I cannot express in words how impressed I am at the people and places here in Venice, out of this world! Emily from Qualicum Beach, British Columbia, Canada (our very own paradise!)

AWSOME Loft living!

  • 4 of 5

We were greeted at the ferry by a lovely gentleman (I'm sorry I can't remember his name). He took us through the streets to the apartment. He showed us around explained a few things we needed to know. The apartment was so clean, no smells and it had everything we needed. As others have notes there are steps to get to the apartment. It will make up for all the food and wine you will be eating. If I were to go back to Venice I would stay here again.
