Overview

About the property

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

This original apartment was planned by an architect in a quiet lane close to one of the main streets in Venice, within Campo San Polo - one of the most famous and large squares in Venice - and it is 5 minutes walk from the famous RIALTO BRIDGE.

In Campo San Polo there is the 'Querini Dubois Palace' an excellent example of Venetian Renaissance architecture, today used as a cultural Centre also for the Film festival organization. During that event in September, St. Polo’s square becomes a moving picture theatre every evening. The apartment is really only a few minutes walk from the public water bus (called 'vaporetto' line 1 SAN STAE), and it is situated near Rialto, the oldest area of Venice historic centre in a centuries old building, on the 2nd floor (North American designation, 1st European).

The entrance is through an independent door and stairs used by two apartments, with earthenware floor and original wooden beam ceilings. It offers very easy access to all the city attractions (only a short walk (15 min. - to St. Mark’s square!). Moreover, in the same district you can find 'Basilica dei Frari' a wonderful church full of historical vestiges, including Canova’s grave.

The apartment is perfect for a couple on a romantic holiday, as it offers warmth, privacy, and the comfort of the most central position you could wish for! But also, the apartment can be the perfect, comfortable and convenient base to explore Venice's beauty and discover its alleys, canal, sights - restaurants, bars and Bacari or osterie (characteristic and historic Venetian wine bars with daily SPRITZ. Meeting place where it is possible to eat small fried food and have a chat with friends or even strangers).

Shop and market are round the corner and just in a few steps you are at the fish market 'La Pescaria' famous all over the world (fish, fruit and vegetable). Moreover, only in a short distance from the apartment, you can find some of the most typical and characteristic Venetian restaurants, very interesting for the various gastronomic proposals and for the different service and rates, such as: DA FIORE, one of the most exclusive restaurants in Italy, suitable to very high standard dinner; ANTICHE CARAMPANE, Venetian cuisine, high level, very quiet in a charming corner, VECIO FRITOLIN an old and marvellous tavern in Calle della Regina (Rialto), meeting place for artists and, in a short way away close to them, AL NONO RISORTO for a dinner in the garden; in Campo St. Polo BIRRARIA LA CORTE pizza-restaurant and characteristic Venetian cuisine. While, for visitors of the Biennal Exhibition gardens, AL DIPORTO at St. Elena’s island offers typical dishes and is attended by Venetians.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tolle Oase in fantastischer Stadt

Die Wohnung liegt zentral, aber doch außerhalb des großen Gewühls. Verkehrsgünstig, ca. 5-10 Fußminuten zur nächsten Vaporettostation. Das Dampferchen haben wir viel benutzt, dafür ist die Venice-Card sehr hilfreich. In fußläufiger Entfernung ist auch der täglich (außer sonntags) stattfindende Markt.

Die Küche ist für eine Ferienwohnung ausgesprochen gut ausgestattet. Da macht es Spaß, das vom Markt Mitgebrachte zuzubereiten. Die Dusche, stimmungsvoll in blaues Licht getaucht, liefert zuverlässig heißes Wasser, und der Wasserdruck übertrifft deutlich das, was wir bislang aus Mittelmeerländern gewöhnt waren. Bei Novemberwetter waren wir froh über die gut funktionierende Heizung. Zu allem Überfluss ist die Wohnung auch noch richtig hübsch; ein angenehmer Rückzugsort nach anstrengenden Besichtigungstouren.

Der Vermieter Enrico ist nicht nur besonders herzlich und vielsprachig; er gab uns auch tolle Empfehlungen zum Essengehen und Einkaufen.

Für unsere Bedürfnisse war diese Wohnung ideal. Beim nächsten Venedigurlaub werden wir sie gerne wieder mieten.

Empfohlen für: Reisende 55+, Urlauber ohne Auto, Kulturinteressierte, Familien mit Teenagern, Romantikurlaub

It was better than expected

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, the place was modern, clean and had everything we needed. It is in a great location. Enrico's suggestions for supper are excellent. I would recommend this place for anyone, we have stayed at many VRBO's throughout the world and this is a good one!

Lovely apartment in Venice

  • 5 of 5

Grazie Enrico for meeting us and showing us your lovely apartment.

Located in quiet Campo San Polo

The windows view are on a canal, your can see the gondoliers pass by.

Do go by the Rialto market in the morning and buy some flowers, fruits, fish!

Everything is so close and it is easy to discover Venice and all her charms.

Grazie mille alla prossima volta

Great place in the heart of Venice

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Enrico's wonderful apartment for four night in September. The location is great and is only about a 5-10 minute walk to the Rialto Bridge. Being so close to Campo San Polo made navigating back to the apartment easy. It is also about a 5 minute walk to the San Stae water bus route and the walk with suitcases was not very difficult at all. We found a small grocery store just a couple of minutes away and stopped there often for supplies. Upon our arrival the apartment was impeccably clean and had everything we needed. The apartment is situated next to one of Venice's many canals and Gondolas go by on a regular basis, which was charming. The apartment is very private and also very quiet, we never saw anyone else in the building the entire time we were there. This is probably the best VRBO property we have stayed at, and we have stayed at several in different parts of the world. You cannot go wrong with Enrico or his property.

None better

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting apartments a couple of times per year for the last ten years and have never had a better experience with an owner/manager. Enrico was everything you could wish for, meeting us at a water stop, explaining Venice and its attractions in detail, and finally offering two surprises...you will have to go there to find out what they are. Lastly, the apartment is equipped nicely, in a wonderful location that allows you easily visit all the fabulous sites in a wonderful city- Venice.

Exceeded my expectations -- AGAIN!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous location! Wonderful owner! Great venue!

I own a waterfront vacation rental in San Luis Obispo County, California, so I am VERY, very selective when I choose a vacation rental for myself. I once arrived in Hawaii for a 2 week stay in a VRBO-listed property and discovered the 2-bedroom unit only had 3 forks, 2 knives, no spoons and plates to serve 3 people. That's just not acceptable! So when I knew I was returning to Venice, I selected Enrico's home, again. This is my second time staying in his property and I am looking forward to returning already. This time I stayed for 4 nights, and that was way TOO short of a stay. Enrico is kind, generous, welcoming and has thought of everything. His apartment is well appointed, spotless and in a great location. He is just charming and met us at the vaporetto stop and took us to his home. It's in a residential area which we loved. With a little imagination it felt like we were almost locals for a couple of days. I kept hoping we'd run into Donna Leon's character Guido Brunetti. It was easy to get around Venice after a day or so of re-orienting ourselves. Enrico provided maps, brochures, great recommendations for dining, shopping and sightseeing. The next time, I hope to stay a month and take an art history course. I highly recommend Enrico and this property. I will definitely be back!
