SUNNY 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)

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 bedroom there is a french bed (47 inches wide) with a cabinet drawers, an access to a small balcony overlooking a quiet space; the bathroom is decorated in fine pink marble from Portugal, complete with a shower and a hairdryer. The living room has a dining table for four, a cabinet-style bars , two sigle beds, and the nice 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. With the exposed wooden beam ceiling and hardwood/brick flooring this apartment captures the beauty of historical Venice.

Independent heating system; everything renewed on May 2004.

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.

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 6,50 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 80-90 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 this beautiful city.

Francesco and Nina purchased this apartment in 1950

My Granfather 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.

My husband and I stayed at Francesco and Nina's place in Venice from 9/29-10/3/13. It was a great apartment. Location was great. Close to everything. If you Shop, Shop, Shop and Eat, Eat, Eat, then this is the place for you! The apartment was clean, and large by European standards. Nina was a delight. Had a wonderful time! We recommend visiting the island of Murano and Burano. Great places. When visiting Venice again, we will definitely give Francesco and Nina a call!

Our hosts Nina and Francesco were extremely helpful from the first inquiry we made until the time we left there apartment. Nina was always both friendly and professional responding promptly to all the emails we sent and was discreetly available for whatever we needed. She offered practical suggestions and left a detailed list of useful information about getting around, where to eat out and where to buy groceries if we wanted to eat in. There was a great little supermarket a block away from the apartment with whatever one could need. Even though the directions to the apartment were very straightforward and we had no trouble in finding our way around, Nina greeted warmly at the vaporetto stop and walked with us the few blocks to the apartment. Her welcome set the tone for our stay. The apartment is adequately equiped and proved to be a suitable home away from home. The two of us were very comfortable. If you are looking for a well-located, quiet apartment with a congenial host, you could do no better than to choose this one. Staying here was a very good experience for us as we explored this wonderful city.

This quaint, quiet, studio is a perfect location for the budget minded traveler that wants to stay in the heart of it all. We were amazed that the place was so quiet being so central. We were able to get a great night of sleep and take naps after long days of getting lost in Venice. Nina and Francesco were very attentive and responded quickly to any questions that came about. We were a little lost upon arrival and took the wrong direction on the water bus. Nina was kind enough to track us down and lead us to the apartment.

This was our first time to Italy and Venice. We are a mature couple with particular tastes and a smaller budget. Nina was very patient with our many questions prior to booking. We had no idea what to expect. What a wonderful surprise --staying in the middle flat. There were NO 'unfortunate surprises' , but instead, we discovered small touches and conveniences to the location that made our stay perfect. The kitchen area was just what was needed and well equipped for simple meals. The bathroom was very good and more than enough hot water. I expected the 'french' double bed to be too small, but found it quite comfortable even for my tall frame.
Francesco's mother (I think I have it right) met us when we arrived and was very helpful, even gave us a discount coupon for a restaurant just down the via which had simple but very tasty food at reasonable prices. She also pointed out the 'supermarket' around the corner with quite superior food choices at reasonable prices. The description of the flat was accurate, clean, comfortable as well as quiet. Arriving there requires a little faith for those unused to the Venetian landscape, but all went well.
The flat's location is perfect to groceries, hardware, vaporetto as well as half way between the Rialto and San Marco Square, yet quiet with wonderful little byways and multiple bridges nearby that captured the magic of Venice in the early morning mist. Being so close to Piazza San Marco meant we could easily visit the cathedral etc. earlier in the morning and escape to other parts of the city when the hoardes descended like locusts.
Francesco was particularly helpful when i needed help to repair my suitcase (beware dragging your roll-along bag over bridges). He took me to the hardware around the corner (very well equipped with everything from appliances to galoshes) and loaned me the needed tools to make the repair--a god save, as we had 17 days of travel ahead of us.
While you cannot be truly lost, finding your way around Venice is exciting as well as mystifying when searching for a specific location, but it was always easy to find our way back and so welcome to just relax in what seemed more a home than a place to stay.
Would we return or recommend this property? YES. We have already booked our next stay--this time in the top flat, because this one is already taken The hosts continue to be very helpful and friendly couple. Thank you Nina and Francesco

My 11 yr old son & I stayed for 3 days & loved it! The description is accurate!! It was just the right size & had all the conveniences we needed. It was clean & safe & air-conditioned!! Location was perfect-all sites & Grand Canal are nearby, good restaurants, shopping & the best gelateria. We never got lost-thank you Nina for your help! Her mother-in-law is also a gracious hostess! I definitely recommend Nina's apt & would stay there again!
