Overview

About the property

Enjoy the beautiful views of Venice as well as good Italian meals on our newly renovated Terrace !

Enjoy also life as a Venitian in this beautiful and spacious apartment (100 square meters) located in an authentic neighbourhood close to the very lively campo Santa Marguerita !

The apartment has an Art Deco style with a wooden library, decorated glass panels and iron wood starcases. It has a great living / dining room (approximately 50 m2), 2 separate bedrooms with their own bathrooms as well as three mezzanines. It is also very comfortable with its Satellite TV, Blue Ray reader and Wifi internet.

Venice is a magical city and our apartment is a very charming place to stay thanks to its tasteful Art Deco renovation and beautiful roof top terrace where you will be able to take a drink or meal with a view on the San Marco tower.

We love the neighbourhood which is away from the crowd but at the same time lively (University C'A Foscari, Campo Santa Marguerita), cultural (close to the Peggy Guggeiheim museum and the Accademia gallery) and very beautiful (we recommend highly the San Basilio / Zattere walk by the Giudecca canal which is 5 minutes from the apartment and boasts one of the best view in Venice).

The apartment is very conveniently located at a 12 minute walk from the Accademia bridge, two Vaporetto stops from the San Marco Piazza and a 10 minute walk from the Piazzale Roma road station or Ferrovia / Santa Lucia train station.

Unique, Expansive, Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is better than the pictures - and the pictures are pretty nice. First, location. It is on the west end of Dorsoduro, near the school of architecture and several other schools. This means that you are within a 15 minute walk of the bus and train stations. We left the apartment at 10 in the morning and were at the airport via the direct, 10:30 ATVO bus at 10:50. It also means that the area is not crowded and that you have easy access to lots of little, affordable bars and restaurants that are close by.

We could also walk east and be at the Peggy Guggenheim in 15 minutes. (Of course, as we were getting to know Venice, we could also get lost and see lots of other places in that period of time.) There is a Prix grocery store about 5 minutes away that has very inexpensive food - good wine is $3. If you push you can go up to a $6 bottle of really good wine. There is also a Conad store about 8 minutes away that has a more extensive selection, and a nice deli counter, prices about 10% more but still very reasonable. If for some reason you want to go to St. Mark's Square with all the folks from the tour boats, you can catch a vaporetto at the Academia and be there in 25 minutes.

Inside: lots of other reviewers have commented, but I'll add what I can. You won't find many open concept, high-ceilinged, stained-glass windowed apartments in Venice. This is one. the living room, dining room and kitchen form a big comfortable, livable space. There are four sleeping areas. On the main floor are two bedrooms, one with a king bed, the other with twin beds. But stairs in each of those bedrooms lead up to lofted sleeping areas, each with a double bed. Each is open to the bedroom below, but not to the rest of the apartment. There are two nice bathrooms, one next to each of the bedrooms. The kitchen is well-equipped. The dishwasher is a good one. A nice gas stove and a full sized refrigerator. A hotpot for tea, a large stovetop expresso coffee maker, and a microwave. We cooked in 5 out of the 6 nights we were there. Every afternoon we went up on the roof veranda, called an altana, and had a bottle of wine, some cheese and antipasto and enjoyed the view of the city as the sun set. We basically wanted to move in and stay there. Concerns for some might be: the apartment is up four flights of stairs and does not have air conditioning (few places do), and (again as with most apartments) there are no screens. Venice is magical!

Stay Here!

  • 5 of 5

Traveled for two weeks in Italy, VRBO the entire time. This apartment is a score. Two floors with the terrace shown in the picture. Sit out with a cup of coffee in the morning and you feel like you have done something right in your life to be lucky enough to be sitting on a roof top in Venice, in your own apartment!

Have Miriam, a local guide and the owner's friend, meet you to escort the first time you go to the apartment. There's a small fee but worth it and fair.

The apartment is not difficult to find but Venice is tricky the first time you go anywhere. I got a little lost the first morning I went out for coffee but everyone I asked could not have been nicer in their effort to help me find my direction. After that it was easy but I was very glad I had taken pictures as I left that morning.

This was my 5th trip to Italy, I have stayed in lots of places, this is the first place I would want if I go back to Venice

An amazing apartment in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Nothing but amazing. There were 4 adults and we had plenty of space and privacy. The kitchen was well equipped and the dishwasher came in handy.

The clothes washer and drying rack was also outstanding. I had fun with the clothes line just out the window on the main floor.

The rooftop terrace was also well used. Some nicer chairs and table would be a nice touch in future.

The location was perfect. Away from the maddening crowds but close enough to walk to everything.

We walked everywhere with no difficulties. Got lost a great deal but that was the fun of it.

All in all a perfect apartment. We would highly recommendation staying here.

Thanks Stephanie and Mark for being so attentive

Very nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

Really nice apartment with every thing you think of or needed in the apartment. It's in a quieter area so you can get a good sleep after a busy day around Venice. A cafe and pizza takeaway right out the door. The roof terrace is brilliant for views and the sun after a long day. We really enjoyed staying here.

Appartement lumineux, spacieux et confortable. Nous avons passé un trés agréable séjour à Venise un peu à l'écart des boutiques de souvenirs et des flots de touristes.

Couldn't be bettered!

  • 5 of 5

Terrific apartment, very unusual, huge living/kitchen/dining room with double-height ceiling and beams, two bedrooms (one double, one twin) and two bathrooms, plus a roof terrace (altana)! Very well equipped kitchen, with enough crockery and cutlery to feed a small army, dishwasher (yay!), toaster etc. Two large sofas and an easy chair made for a very relaxed space.

Location was terrific: very quiet, with a wide fondamenta unlike most of the very narrow ones you find the rest of the city. This is the University quarter, so the restaurant and bar prices tend to be lower. We ate at two really good restaurants in Campo Santa Margherita: Al Sportivi and Pier Dickens, and also at an even more local restaurant, Da Codroma, on Fondamenta Briati, which was splendid. There is a lot to see in the local area, and it seems very relaxed, no bustle. Great local churches, including San Sebastiano, which is virtually decorated by Veronese (who is buried there) and only a short walk to several others, including the amazing San Pantalon, with the world's largest painting on the ceiling - a riot of trompe l'oeil.

Really can't think of anywhere better to stay if you want a great Venetian holiday. Thank you!
