Castello Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Family Apartment w/ terrace, true Venetian Experience. 2 min from S.Marco
The apartment is in an 19th century building, on the top floor of 3. It is a typical traditional Venice house, and we have taken care to maintain its characteristics, when we completely restored and renovated it in 2012.
It is bright, airy and extremely comfortable, with central heating. It has wireless internet connection which means you can stay in touch with home whilst on your holidays, and satellite TV with international programs, on flat screen.
It's perfectly situated for a short Venice trip before boarding your Cruise Ship ( just a few minutes from water-shuttle to Venice port) !! The water-buses from Airport and Railway station stop at about 3 minutes walking distance.
The two bedrooms are one with double and one with twin beds, and a further comfortable sofa bed is in the living area. The kitchen is well equipped with everything to cook superb Italian food and it’s separated from the living room. Dining table for 6 in the dining area. The bathroom, with shower, has also been completed refurbished.
Our lovely balcony is a precious extra, it overlooks Venice roofs, and it’s just large enough to eat out (max 4 persons) or just relax with a glass of good wine after a long day spent exploring the town. It is adjoining to the second double bedroom.
There is no problem for aqua alta as we are on the third floor. Stairs are quite steep!
- children welcome
- non smoking only
- pets not allowed
- wheelchair inaccessible
Why Francesca and Paolo chose Castello
The Castello area is still the true Venice, where you can mingle with children off to school, whilst their nonna (granny) greets them as they dash by. You are 5 minutes from the thick of the action, San Marco square, the Palazzo Grassi, the new Punta della Dogana Museum and of course Rialto and the fish market. However, you are 15 minutes from the Giardini (with a children's playground) where you can enjoy the view onto the sparkling water of the Lagoon. Or jump onto a number 1 Vaporetto to bring you to the Lido beach in about 8 minutes flat. Our “campo” has many trattoria in it, and they’ll will greet you warmly. We have a supermarket very close.
The slow easy pace of Venice will seduce you.
Our place is also very well situated if you wish to take a tour of Venice before or after a cruise in the mediterranean sea!!
What makes this apartment unique
Our apartment is in one of the liveliest part of Venice, and still out of the crowd, being on third floor with a private entrance, shared only with 2 other flats. Shops and all services (pharmacy, restaurants, supermarket, ticket office for events and theatres, travel agency) are within few meters. The Vaporetto (water-bus) stops at a 2 minutes walk from us, no problem for heavy luggages! Water-bus direct line to airport of Venice at 2 minutes.
