Overview

Castello Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment w/ terrace, true Venetian Experience, S.Marco Sq, near airport shuttle

The apartment is in an 19th century building, on the top floor of 3. It is a typical traditional Venice house, and we have taken care to maintain its characteristics, when we completely restored and renovated it in 2012.

It is bright, airy and extremely comfortable, with central heating. It has very reliable wireless internet connection which means you can stay in touch with home whilst on your holidays, and satellite TV with international programs, on flat screen.

It's perfectly situated for a short Venice trip before boarding your Cruise Ship ( just a few minutes from water-shuttle to Venice port) !! The water-buses from Airport and Railway station stop at about 3 minutes walking distance.

The two bedrooms are one with double and one with twin beds, and a further comfortable sofa bed is in the living area. The kitchen is well equipped with everything to cook superb Italian food and it’s separated from the living room. Dining table for 6 in the dining area. The bathroom, with shower, has also been completed refurbished.

Our lovely balcony is a precious extra, it overlooks Venice roofs, and it’s just large enough to eat out (max 4 persons) or just relax with a glass of good wine after a long day spent exploring the town. It is adjoining to the second double bedroom.

There is no problem for aqua alta as we are on the third floor. Stairs are quite steep!

Why Francesca and Paolo chose Venice city center

The Castello area is still the true Venice, where you can mingle with children off to school, whilst their nonna (granny) greets them as they dash by. You are 5 minutes from the thick of the action, San Marco square, the Palazzo Grassi, the new Punta della Dogana Museum and of course Rialto and the fish market. However, you are 15 minutes from the Giardini (with a children's playground) where you can enjoy the view onto the sparkling water of the Lagoon. Or jump onto a number 1 Vaporetto to bring you to the Lido beach in about 8 minutes flat. Our “campo” has many trattoria in it, and they’ll will greet you warmly. We have a supermarket very close.

The slow easy pace of Venice will seduce you.

Our place is also very well situated if you wish to take a tour of Venice before or after a cruise in the mediterranean sea!!

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment is in one of the liveliest part of Venice, and still out of the crowd, being on third floor with a private entrance, shared only with 2 other flats. Shops and all services (pharmacy, restaurants, supermarket, ticket office for events and theatres, travel agency) are within few meters. The Vaporetto (water-bus) stops at a 2 minutes walk from us, no problem for heavy luggages! Water-bus direct line to airport of Venice at 2 minutes.

Fantastic Location! Owners great to deal with and apartment just can't be beat!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this apartment for a few days after a trip to Florence and before a cruise out of Venice. Our 5th VRBO rental experience. Dealing with owners was easy for booking and payments. Met Mrs. Pucci within minutes of arriving from vaporetto at meeting location. The apartment was PERFECT! Two large bedrooms with tons of storage and air conditioner units. Ample room in family room and kitchen. Brand new washer which was very helpful during our stay. Bathroom typical small but functional. The location just can't be beat! Literally steps to San Marco but not crowded where it located. Our family of 3 had plenty of room and would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Amazing apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for over a week and it's a lovely apartment. The hosts are friendly and communicated with us very well. The apartment is located pretty much around the corner from San Marco and is clean and well stocked and decorated. Some great restaurants just down the stairs. Highly recommended!

Very good top floor apartment

  • 5 of 5

Very good apartment. Enjoyed our weeks stay. Easy to deal with owner. Pucci met us and showed us round (thank you for the roses) Could not have been a better location, short walk from the ferry stop, 3 minute walk to St Marks square. Very clean, good beds, air con, washer. The terrace was a delight, so special to have outside space in Venice. Nice to go back to apt have a rest and then go out in the evening when all the crowds have gone. My husband and myself had 7 day ferry tickets,50 Euros each, able to visit even the furthest island. Went 3rd week in July for the II Redentore festival. The most wonderful firework display,45 minutes long. Would recommend to everyone, will go back next year.

Schöne helle Wohnung in TOP-Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben 3 Tage in dieser schönen Wohnung verbracht und wären sehr gerne länger geblieben. Die Ausgangslage der Wohnung ist wunderbar - nur wenige Meter bis zum Markusplatz und auch nicht weit von den Giardini entfernt - in einem lebendigen Viertel mit vielen kleinen Geschäften. Die Wohnung ist genauso wie beschrieben und die Fotos stimmen auch. Sie ist sehr sauber und gut ausgestattet, Die Zimmer lassen sich komplett verdunkeln - was für mich immer sehr wichtig ist.

Die Buchungsabwicklung war unkompliziert und die Vermieterin war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Vielen Dank! Thank you! Gracie mille!
