Overview

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.

tres bonne adresse

nous avons passé une semaine dans cet appartement très calme tout près du Rialto et de saint Marc. Les propriétaires nous ont accueilli très gentiment malgré l'heure tardive.

Perfect Venice Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous 6 day stay in this Venice apartment. It was close to everything, it had wonderful atmosphere and we felt very safe. The apartment was clean, the bed was comfortable and all of amenities we needed to do all of our own cooking were provided. It was a bonus being able to do our laundry there. The grocery store was within a minute's walk and this feature made things very cost effective. The stay was made very special by the owner, Nina, who bent over backwards to provide information and make us feel very welcome. In a heartbeat we would stay there again.

We stayed in this lovely apartment for six days and enjoyed it very much. It's very convenient to everything and such a nice place to come back to after being out exploring Venice everyday. Nina was a gracious host and very helpful. For our first trip to Venice it was amazing and we hope we'll be able to return some day.

Thanks Nina, we have a wonderful time.

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a most magnificent 2nd stay in this apartment, and we plan to return! That should say enough, however, just to be very clear the description of this apartment is most exactly what you will find. The owners have been very precise, and do business in this most professional manner, very refreshing, and worthy of great confidence. We have never encountered any problem, quite the opposite, they have made the booking, checking in, etc., experience easier each time. Here, as stated, you will be in the midst of the real Venice, between 2 lovely courtyards, amongst locals, a few steps from more local and tourist destinations than you could want to see in a year. The owners are truly trustworthy, kind, sincere, dependable to a fault, they make your stay everything you wish it to be and a bit more. The experience you can have in this apartment, with these owners is immersion Venetian with just enough of the modern comforts of home to lull you into vacation oblivion, you may truly forget you have a life to return to. Venice itself is intoxicating, and staying in a traditional Venetian manner, shopping, cooking, walking, inhaling and savoring it with your own place while you are here, having a temporary local and lovely family that is most effective support, is hard to put into words, let's just say 'it's priceless'. See you soon Nina & Francesco P.S. ready for the chocolate flourless cake recipe!! XO

SURPERB!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Well Located Accomodation Close To the Rialto Bridge (& vaporetto) & A Nice Walk To St Mark's Square

  • 5 of 5

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.
