This charming, newly renovated, simple ground floor apartment is situated in the heart of Venice where the Venetians live, a 12 minute walk from St Mark’s Square. The area is one of the few real neighborhoods in Venice – near the gardens when the Biennale is held, a vaporetto stop from the Lido beach and weekly market. Barges selling fresh fruit and vegetables dock on the local canal, an excellent cheese shop, wine store (take the empty glass bottles for filling!), bread shop, fish stall and butcher are all close by on Via Garibaldi. The evening “passeggiata” (stroll) is busy with Venetian children, babies and dogs. There are plenty of excellent inexpensive restaurants nearby and some excellent and expensive places to eat as well! Museums and concerts are easy walking distance in this remarkably tourist free part of Venice.
The apartment has a living room/eating area and a tiny cooking alcove with stove and refrigerator across from a small bathroom, with a sits bath, basin and lavatory. There is an inviting private garden perfect for breakfast and romantic dinners! The apartment is cozy in winter and cool in summer.

I fell in love with Venice years ago and used to stay in the little apartment when it was owned by an American couple who holidayed there for nearly 20 years. I have always enjoyed the combination of walking all over Venice, exploring museums, churches and resturants, then coming home to the peace and quietness of the apartment and garden. I love to cook there, or read and write and relax, emerging from the holiday rejuvenated by the beauty and the serenity of Venice!
