DELICIOUS APARTMENT 3 MINUTES WALKING FROM ST. MARK'S SQUARE

Castello Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

THE APARTMENT

This recently renovated apartment is located in the heart of the historic center of Venice, halfway between the Rialto bridge (a six minute walk) and St. Mark’s Square (a three minute walk). It is very calm because it looks on to a private courtyard and it is accessible only through another quiet venetian private yard.

In the apartment there is a double bedroom with an armoire and a chiffonier.

The dining room has a lovely early twentieth century inlaid table that seats four, an antique wood and glass china cabinet, a full size sofa-bed and television. The private bathroom is decorated in fine pink marble from Portugal, complete with a bathtub and a hairdryer. The beautiful kitchen has black African granite counters with walls in red marble from Verona. It is equipped with a refrigerator and freezer-cell, a four-burner gas stove, an oven and a microwave.

The four rooms are connected by a foyer allowing separate access to each room making this ideal for two couples. Everyone can have the perfect autonomy and freedom. With the exposed wooden beam ceiling and hardwood/brick flooring this apartment captures the beauty of historical Venice.

Independent heating and air conditioning system.

We uasually do discounts for childrens under 16.

INTEREST AROUND

Within a radius of fifty meters (really!) you will find: a supermarket, a fruit and vegetable store, a bakery, a dairy, a butcher, a pizza take-away, a wine shop, an electrical appliance store, an internet café, various restaurants, pizzerias and bars, as well as many different kinds of stores. Moreover, in just five minutes by foot you will find two banks, the postal-office and many others typical places where you can eat wonderful fish or just drink a typical cocktail. With everything just at your doorstep you will think you are in the comforts of your own home. As the apartment is located right in the center of the city near the most beautiful monuments, quite a lively area, you can easily reach every other interesting point in the city in just thirty minutes by foot. In addition, it is situated only six minutes away from the two most important vaporetto (water bus) stops in the city (Rialto and San Zaccaria). However, remember that in Venice it is best to travel by foot or with the Venetians on the vaporetto, because the water taxis are very expensive.

HOW TO ARRIVE

If you arrive from the bus station or the car parks (Piazzale Roma stop), or from the train station of Venice “Santa Lucia” (Ferrovia stop), take the vaporetto number 2 (which costs 7 Euro per person) for about fifteen minutes until you reach the Rialto stop. Then it is just six minutes by foot to reach the apartment. You can also take a water taxi which costs about 50-60 Euro per trip.

If you arrive from the airport, take the bus to Venice (a twenty minute ride). Once you arrive in Piazzale Roma, take the vaporetto number 2 as mentioned above. You can also take a water taxi direct from the airport which costs about 80-100 Euro per trip.

If you arrive by car you must leave it in the car park. In Venice it costs between 24 to 30 Euro per day (if there is space). In Mestre it costs 8 Euro per day at the car park in front of the train station; then you just take the train to “Venezia Santa Lucia” (which costs 1,50 Euro) and take the vaporetto number 2 as mentioned above.

If you are already in Venice you can easily reach the apartment by foot.

I was born in Venice, and I spent all of my life here, in the historical center of this amazing city.

With my beautiful wife Nina we'll make all our best to make you feel comfortable.

We rent few apartments of our family with great passion, offering and expecting the utmost seriousness.

We rent these apartments from many years also on other very known sites with great satisfaction of our guests, and we are in the official accommodation guide of the city of Venice.

We live few minutes from the apartments, so we can help you easly for any kind of trouble.

If you want to spend some relaxing days here, in the real center of the city, in a calm and quite place, we're expecting you!

Greetings from Venice,

Francesco and Nina.

P.S. Our foto was taken in St.Mark's Square the 31th October 2012, during an high water event.

Francesco and Nina purchased this apartment in 1950

My Grandfather bought it a lot of years ago because Venice is Venice... !

You will feel at home... Venice is a little big city, you'll find anything you need in few minutes walking.

Very Venetian

I hesitate to comment on the directions I received via email from Nina. Frankly, I got lost and it was the start of a beautiful love affair with Venice. If you don't want to get as lost, keep reading. Where she says, go 'over the statute', draw a straight line from where you enter the piazza and find the portal to the next part of the directions on the opposite wall (there was a green neon sign above it when I was there). Do NOT go down either of the walkways at the very end of the square or you will wander around for 45 minutes like I did. Nina's word 'subway' means the mini walkway-bridges over the water. Besides the rocky start, the rest of the stay was fabulous! I loved the location of the place - so close to Rialto and St Mark's but just far enough away that you almost feel like one of the locals. The bed was comfy, the kitchen included olive oil and balsamic vinegar on the counter - a true sign that you're in Italia! All the rest of the quirks to this place are part of it's charm. I'm still trying to decide what "DO NOT BLINK THE GATE" means on the sign on the back of the alleyway gate. (don't change it Nina - it's part of the mystery of Venice!) Which brings me to the lovely landlady Nina. So supportive and thorough. She made it easy to imagine that my first vrbo experience wasn't going to be my last!

Great location and quiet!

This apartment is in a great central location, but very quiet, as it faces an inner courtyard. Everything worked as it should, including the air conditioner (also very quiet), and wifi. We would definitely stay here again.

Charming pied a terre in Venezia

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 15, 2013

This clean, well-appointed one bedroom apartment is ideally located. It is less than five minutes to the Rialto Bridge and to St. Marks Square. A great grocery store is one minute away. Our hosts were attentive and helpful. We stayed a full week and were very comfortable. The kitchen, though small, was well-equipped, and allowed us to buy locally at the fish and vegetable markets and cook at home. A small drawback was the occasional rattling of pots and dishes from the restaurant that shared a nonaccessible courtyard, but it closed at a reasonable hour. We highly recommend this charming place.

Right in the heart of the action

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 11, 2012

This is a nice apartment for 2-3 people if you want to be right in the heart of the action. The apartment is just a 2-3 minute walk from San Marco, 7-8 minute walk to Rialto Bridge, Rialto Market and vaparetto. This area can be crowded with tourists but also has many restaurants within a short walk. It was pleasant to be able to spend evenings in San Marco with only a short walk back to the apartment. The building is located on Calle Casseleria (small “alley” at the end of Salizado Lio. Casseleria is not even on some Venice maps ). The apartment, Casseleria #3, is on the third floor. 20 steps up a manageable staircase. The apartment met all our needs. It is exactly as shown and described in VBRO. Kitchen had all the necessary cookware and utensils (not that we cooked very often). Bathroom was clean. Shower was comfortable, plenty of hot water and good pressure. There is a washing machine under the stairs that is shared by the 3 apartments in the building. It came in handy. No noise from the other apartments. Apartment felt very secure. First, unlock an iron gate to enter a small plain courtyard which has entrances to a few different apartment buildings. Then unlock the door to the apartment building then another locked door on the apartment itself. There is a good size grocery store just around the corner. Some folks avoid apartment rental due to the additional logistics involved but the owners made the process very easy. We have rented apartments before and this was by far the easiest process. Emails from owners were very clear and concise. Paid deposit via Pay Pal. Owners provided clear direction how to get to the apartment (although Venice can be a challenge finding your way even with the best directions. The directions from the Rialto vaparetto take you over only one canal bridge with a few stairs so not too much of a struggle with the luggage). Marina (the owner’s mom) was very cordial and met us at the apartment, collected the balance, explained the apartment and we were done in just a few minutes. Just as fast as checking into a hotel.

We were very pleased with this apartment. The location and description and photos of the apartment were accurate. The apartment was very clean and all the appliances worked properly. We found the apartment quiet and comfortable. The apartment is in a central location and is an easy walk to all the primary attractions and had a supermarket around the corner. We would recommend this apartment our friends or relatives. The apartment does not have wifi access but this does not impact our rating.
