THE 'DE BARBARI' 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.

SCOTTISH GUESTS, 2011

  • 4 of 5
We spent a week in the apartment which was central and easy to locate. The area is quiet and there are good views over Venice from the french doors in the sitting room. Pleasant sitting at the open window having breakfast etc although there is also a very good cafe opposite the Frari church which serves a very cheap breakfast. The owner was very helpful and good communication. We enjoyed our stay and would consider staying here again.

GOOD VALUE IN A LOVELY AREA

  • 4 of 5
The apartment had character and a fine airy bedroom - the sitting and kitchen area are limited but fine if you are going to be out a lot and having the full length windows helps a lot. The managers are very friendly and provide good information about facilities in the area. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to friends.

CHARMING HOME IN AUTHENTIC VENICE

we stayed in the attic flat in ca badoer recently and really liked it. The fact that it is a little out of the main Tourist area is a big plus. Ketty was very helpful and the flat had everything we needed

IDEAL ACCOMODATION

  • 5 of 5
This was probably one of the best holidays we've had. The property was absolutely perfect and more than we had hoped for. The location couldn't be better and thanks to the map Pietro provided and the directions, we found it without a hitch. Ketti and Pietro were delightful.and very helpful with suggestions etc. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to others, in fact I already have, and plan to stay here myself when I return to Venice in the near future.

8 DAYS IN VENEZIA

  • 4 of 5
Ca Badoer is a spacious and comfortable apt. in a quiet location away from the crowds. We were within a short walk to the San Toma vaporetto stop, and not too far from the Rialto Market for produce and fish. There was also a small supermercato a short walk away. The apartment had 2 negatives. The mattress in the bedroom had a large bump in the middle and the tub needed a shower curtain to allow you to easily shower. The windows in the living area had a beautiful view over the neighborhood and the ringing of the church bells nearby provided a joyful chorus to our day.

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.
