THE 'ATTIC' 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.

DALLA RUSSIA CON AMORE

  • 5 of 5
Questa è una posizione molto comoda a Venezia. Molto vicino alle principali attrazioni e alla stazione ferroviaria. Nelle vicinanze si trova un negozio di alimentari. Appartamento West è in perfette condizioni. Qui troverete tutto il necessario. Un sacco di piatti diversi. C'è la televisione satellitare. L'appartamento era calda in inverno.
Una grande scelta.
Consigliato per i più avventurosi, visita della città, fuga romantica.
Boris e Larissa.

PERFECT VENICE APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
Completely exceeded our expectations as was one of the cheaper apartments available. Very clean, very well kitted out (umbrellas, wellingtons) and very well located. More than enough room for 2 and a kitchen you could actually cook in (oven, hob and microwave, condiments and oils). Charming customer service. Shabby chic style which perfectly suited Venice. Also warm even in freezing weather. Would highly recommend.

A TERRIFIC APARTMENT!

  • 5 of 5
Very well equipped, clean and well located apartment. WIFI, cable TV and air conditioning added since our visit seven years ago. Otherwise, much as we remembered it. Warm welcome from Pietro, who remembered us and thanked us for returning. We have had a wonderful visit and hope to return yet again. We highly recommend this apartment. Great views! And having an elevator is a great asset too. We mainly ate at home - there is a good supermarket a few minutes away.

FANTASTIC PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Spent 1 week in the west studio october 2010, my first time in Venice.The owner, Peter and wife Ketty, accepted the 2 of us from an early flight from USA. Registered, held our bags and checked back in a couple hours. The apartment was just like the pictures. The elevator was wonderful and an added benefit. Located in a great location and was able to walk all over Venice. Peter escorted us to apartment and showed us all we needed to know. Very clean, equipped with everything we needed along with things for the little kitchenette. Cooked a couple times while there. Small shops, restaurants and a small grocery store nearby. Would love to go back to Venice again and would stay there again. Thanks for a great vacation.

ABSOLUTELY STUNNING

  • 5 of 5
We rented the family apartment some years ago and it was absolutely stunning. And the neighborhood is so charming and not so inundated by tourists. I would rent this again in a second when I return to Venice. Truly magnificent!!

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.
