My wife, two young daughters (ages 14 & 9) and I stayed at this wonderful apartment for two wonderful weeks and we enjoyed every second of it. The apartment is ideally located in a very quite Venice neighborhood where one can lose themselves living like a local or walk a mere 10 to 15 minutes to be right in the middle of the crazy tourist scene of San Marcos Square or the Rialto Bridge.
The apartment has its own dock right on the Grand Canal so arrival from and departure to the airport is very easy (no lugging one’s luggage around Venice) and the dock is a wonderful place to enjoy a great bottle of wine and some cheese purchased at the local market only a 100 meters from the villa. The sights and sounds of being right on the Grand Canal can only be described as amazing, relaxing, wonderful and throughly enjoyable.
The apartment is well equipped and allows one to make it their home away from home. The owner and their locally based staff were wonderful both prior to our arrival and during our stay. The owner and their staff made us feel right at home and were never more than a quick text or phone call away if we need any advice or suggestions on simple or complex requests.
There are numerous cafes, markets and bakeries all within a minute to a five minute walk so one is never lacking for a range of choices to satisfy their requirements. The apartment is also very centrally located to multiple public water taxi stations and the canal crossing gondola service.
The apartment is well appointed and very comfortable but it is a 400 year-old building (I believe I have the age correct) which has been completely redone but for those expecting the Four Seasons, you might be a little disappointed but for those who have traveled, understand and appreciate what old world Europe is all about you won’t be disappointed in the least!! The pictures on the website are accurate so if you like what you see you will love it!!!!
We can’t wait to return and enjoy the villa once again and we’d highly recommend it to anyone who asks.
