THE 'SOUTH STUDIO' APARTMENT

San Polo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1-2 - 3 - 6 bedrooms, 1- 2 - 5 bathrooms, sleep 1-14

Ca’ Badoer dei barbacani is a private 'palazzetto' located at the very heart of Venice. It offers a few self-catering apartments for rent on a weekly basis. The apartments are on the second 'piano nobile' and floors above, and enjoy open views - some over Church and canal. The interiors preserve a typically Venetian period feel, but combine this with modern comfort, first of all the use of a LIFT (elevator): 'no stairs to climb’. Some apartments have air conditioning, some satellite TVs, all have full equipment, linen, and weekly cleaning. The location, well known for the splendid Church of the Frari, is quiet and yet within walking distance of the Rialto and St. Mark’s. There are many local shops and restaurants, and close by at San Toma’ is the stop for public water-transport on the Grand Canal. The accommodation can also be rented as whole to suit a party of up to 14 people. For further details on the Whole Accommodation please click on 'full sized photographs' here below.

Special features and view: A long history! The palazzetto still preserves some original features belonging to a 10th/11th century house, then home to a branch of the Badoer, one of the most distinguished Venetian families. Re-designed by the Badoers towards the end of the 15th century, the medieval projecting pinions, or 'barbacani', have since become its identifying characteristic. In 1500 the house appeared in the “Bird’s eye view map of Venice” by Jacopo De Barbari. Overall, it stayed in the ownership of the Badoers for almost a millennium, till the end of the 19th Century.

Being a taller building than the surrounding houses, it enjoys plenty of light as well as far reaching views, going as far as the domes of the Salute and the Alps on a clear day. The view of the canal dei Frari and canal San Stin joining together under the bridge and also that of the Frari bell-tower in the moonlight are truly romantic sights.

Shopping and transport: The location is near the Church of the Frari, a well-known landmark to the “conoscenti”. The area is quiet, yet central; within easy reach of the Rialto, the Accademia and Saint Mark’s on foot, and quicker still by “vaporetto” from S. Toma’. Locally, cafes, restaurants, shops and markets are all close at hand, and so are two Universities, the State Archives of the “Serenissima” , patronised by international scholars, concert halls (concerts held in the Frari Church, as well as the two “Scuole” of S. Rocco and of St John the Evangelist), ... and paintings galore: the Frari Titians, the Tintorettos at San Rocco are just round the corner. Understandably, the local population are mostly professionals or academic-related. On the other hand, our visitors enjoy sight seeing - whether on foot, by gondola or by water-bus - shopping for designer fashion & antiques, visiting museums, attending concerts, gondola regattas, bathing at the Lido, painting or just writing books on Venice.

Sports: In Venice local rowing clubs and sailing clubs, such as the 'Compagnia della Vela', have a distinguished history. More water-sports, as well as golf, tennis and riding are available at the island of the Lido, where also bicycles can be hired. The beach at the Lido can be reached by direct water-bus service from San Toma’ in 3/4 hour. To secure a good beach cabin for the day, or half-day, an early morning start by water-bus is advisable. Early morning travel is not so crowded and the journey along the Grand Canal, then across the Lagoon to the Lido is an event in itself. The return journey in the evening, facing the sun setting behind the domes of Venice and the waters of the Lagoon come ablaze with colours is also something not to be missed.

ketty was so helpful and the room was exactly what we needed for a nice price. the location was perfect- away from the huge loud crowds in the san marco area, but close to many cafes and gelaterias and the vaporetto. the binder in the apartment had all the information we needed and ketty pointed us to the nearby grocery store.

as a result of staying here our trip to venice was much more affordable and comfortable!

Great little place to stay in Venice. Prices extremely reasonable. Ketty was very helpful. The only problem I had was with the water pressure, but maybe this is the norm in older buildings in Venice. I loved the charm of the place and would definitely recommend to friends.

Excellent apartment, would recommend!

Tucked away behind the Frari church is this gem of an apartment offering an authentic experience of staying in Venice. The main room in the apartment has high ceilings and two windows looking out onto the bell towers of the Frari.

Excellent amenities for dining and cooking, everything is very tidy and clean. The room was lovely and warm in December and due to its position very quiet and restful.

The owners are very friendly and helpful and we were even offered wellington boots in case of flooding.

We would definitely stay there again, if only to feel like we live in Venice for a few days!

Fantastic place to stay in great location

We recently stayed in one of the studios and enjoyed our stay immensely. Everything was lovely and sparkling clean with large windows overlooking the Frari. The location was brilliant and being so central meant that we could stop in at home throughout the day to take a rest and then go out sight-seeing and wandering again. Having a kitchenette also meant that we didn't need to eat out all the time. I'd highly recommend staying at these apartments - the prices are exceptionally good value and the building is a historical gem - it was such a wonderful way to see Venice.

The old city of Venice lies peacefully in the middle of a Lagoon. It is made of hundreds of small islands connected together by arched bridges with steps, where cars can't go. A 3 Km long causeway connects the city to the mainland. At the Venice end of the causeway are several multistorey garages. At this point, both motoring and rail travel end and only pedestrians or boats can enter the city.

Other Activities: Sight-seeing (architectural beauty, romantic landscapes), shopping (fashion - antiques), visiting art galleries, concerts, gondola regattas, cuisine.
