About the property

Bright main floor in a historical palace

Fascinating apartment with large rooms where the ancient furniture is combined with the artwork of the owner, a well known Italian painter. The atmosphere is elegant and aristocratic, with a twist of unique and unconventional style.

The apartment features two beautiful bedrooms and three bathrooms, a large sitting room full of light where guests can gather, relax and enjoy their time in an authentic Venetian home.

Capriccio Veneziano is fully equipped in houseware, linen and all the necessities to make your visit comfortable. The small kitchen, recently fully renovated, is very functional and adjoined to the dining room.

It has taken me a while to send my review because it’s sometimes difficult to describe dreams. My friends and family came together for my 50th birthday at the end of May for 20 wonderful days. My and Cristiana’s email exchanges were some of the most pleasant I ever had with someone I’ve never met. She put me at ease with every question and concern I had. There were no issues or problems while we were there but she checked in to see how things were going and to give us a heads up when the housekeeper was coming, who was also very lovely to us. The apartment is perfect. Necessities are covered, everything works. But that’s not what the apartment is about. It’s not about form and function; it’s heart, passion and beauty that trump all here. The place is an extension of Venice itself: beauty reigns and the past is honored in this home of a Venetian artist and her family. I was moved every time I walked in the door, amazed that anyone would open up a home like this to citizens of the world. But this is what the artist chooses to give of herself to the world: a beautiful setting borne from her past and her work as an artist while we live the day-to-day life in modern Venice. With each turn of the head and sideways glance, new and glorious images appeared. Then the frame would expand and I would delight in how perfectly thought out it all was. My husband and I awoke every morning to a painting of an angel. We stood still at midnight and watched sparkling moons danced across the dining room wall and ceiling. And we sat quietly in the sitting room as the light at dusk streamed in from the huge windows. The longer we stayed, the more we fell in love. We were struck by how coming “home” to this apartment made our daily outings only half of our Venetian experience. We easily fell into a daily routine. In the mornings, we drank espresso together in the sitting room. We hung laundry out the window, which in the act itself makes the place feel like home - and only one sock fell the entire time! - and was easily retrieved. We toasted with Prosecco before going out for dinner and shopped for groceries at a store literally 45 seconds away. The location is ideal. It’s an easy walk to the Rialto Bridge, where you can also reach Canneregio and Castello in minutes. The Scuola di San Rocco and the Frari church are less than 3 minutes away (do not miss!) Dorsoduro and the Zattere a 15 minute walk and there is always the vaparetto stop just 2 minutes away. Gorgeous experience.

Very nice stay in a good location

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay in Venice and enjoyed San Polo. Everything was very good for our stay. The apartment is well located and well stocked with everything that we needed. The layout for 2 couples was a bit less than ideal. The master bedroom was nice but the second bedroom choice is a small low loft. Good for kids but not for adults. Other than that we had a very nice stay and enjoyed our stay very much.

Owner's Response: Hi Anthony, we are glad that you found our apartment well located and well stocked and that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are sorry that you were disappointed by the second bedroom which you found not adapted for a second couple. Our apartment layout description does specify that in the second bedroom -next to the master bedroom- the beds are set-up as twin beds. This bedroom is 20 sqmt large and the ceiling height is 4,5 mt, therefore we are surprised that you consider it a small low loft. The beds are set-up as twin beds to accomodate the majority of our guests who prefer separate beds but we can change to a double bed set-up if our guests request it in advance.

An Exquisite Apartment in an Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment. The listing description is quite accurate. Very high ceilings and great natural light during the day. The well-designed layout of the apartment would work perfectly for a group as small as two people or as large as six people. The apartment was spotless, and, unlike some vacation rentals, its kitchen includes all equipment and utensils that you would need if you choose to cook yourself. The Rialto fish and vegetable markets are about a fifteen-minute walk from the apartment. Conveniently located, the apartment is situated in a quiet courtyard that is free of noisy pedestrian traffic. And our water taxi to the airport picked us up a mere twenty steps away from the apartment.

As it turns out, we did not cook at all because of the many great restaurants within walking distance, including Muro Frari (very close to the apartment), alla Zucca (good vegetarian and meat options), Antiche Carampane (the best seafood we had in Venice), Osteria Trefanti (my personal favorite), and Trattoria da Ignazio (very close to the apartment).

The Frari church featuring works by Titian, Bellini, and Donatello and the tombs of Titian and Canova is a must-see and a four-minute walk from the apartment. Another must-see is also very close to the apartment: the Scuola San Rocco, which has been described as "Tinteretto's Sistine Chapel." Most of the other major sights in Venice (St. Mark's Basilica, the Doge's Palace, the Museo Correr, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, and the Accademia) are within a half-hour's walk of the apartment. And the apartment is about a ten-minute walk from the train station. We arrived in Venice by train, and we easily walked to the apartment with the very specific and helpful directions that the owner gave us.

And the owner was very efficient and responsive. She even arranged the pre-booking of our water taxi reservation for 5:45 a.m. on New Year's Day.

Exquisite accomodation in Venice.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 (kids are 12, 10 and 7) and just back from 5 day stay in Venice. The apartment was beautiful, perfectly located for all we needed and it was not a problem that we arrived earlier than expected. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone looking to spend a few days close to everything.

A Work of Art

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is like an art gallery with wonderful art in every room. It was very well equipped and well located for exploring Venice. Close to a good grocery store and restaurants. I would recommend this apartment to anyone. Need to walk up 2 flights of stairs but that is not unusual.

Car: not necessary

Capriccio Veneziano is ideally located in the center of Venice, 3 minutes walk from the Frari Basilica and 10 minutes from the Rialto bridge, but out of the main tourist stream. The apartment overlooks the small square " Corte Amaltea", tucked as a secret hiding place in the heart of one of the most beautiful and interesting cities in the World. The Palazzo is excellently located because Piazzale Roma (car, bus and taxi terminal) can be reached with a 10 minutes walk and the railway station is within 15 minutes walk . Also, the nearest vaporetto stop "San Toma'" can be reached with a 5 minutes walk.
