Venetian Honeymoon Suite Right on the Grand Canal

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Description of bedroom suite: Bedroom with bathroom on the ground (Canal) floor, with two double windows directly onto the Grand Canal; the wavelets lap six feet beneath the windows! Outside the very private, locked bedroom suite there is a foyer area where guests may sit and even leave luggage--next to which a Canal door opens onto a dock on the Grand Canal. At the back, a garden/courtyard and a large entrance hallway are at the disposal of guests. Please note that when owners or their friends are staying in the separate upstairs apartment (they are not always there), they will use the foyer for access to the dock and boat, and the back garden/courtyard as well. Television, wireless internet, refrigerator, microwave, electric kettle are available. There is no kitchen however or real kitchen facilities.

Description of site: the apartment is located in a Palazzo in the most exclusive area of Venice in San Marco, and faces onto the Grand Canal. A very popular family cafe-restaurant is one minute from the front gate of the Palazzo where an excellent breakfast as well as the other meals are available. While it is very practical for all communications, located two minutes between two Vaporetto stops (Sant'Angelo and San Samuele) and one minute from a traghetto stop (to cross the Canal), within three minutes to the elegant San Stefano square and ten minutes walk to the Rialto, it is well out of the tourist flow and very quiet and peaceful.

About Marie-Helene

I am a novelist, half a dozen books, travelling between Paris, Venice and Panama. I also show my graphic work throughout Europe.

Marie-Helene purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Marie-Helene chose San Marco

I spend not just 'vacations' here but throughout the year. Venice is one of the few cities which can really be called 'unique'; beauty walks with you throughout the city. Peace, beauty, delight.

What makes this apartment unique

From our windows I watch Venice sail down the Grand Canal; I can hop over to almost any part of the town by boat when I so wish, as well as get out to the delightful little islands which pepper the laguna. Peaceful in the midst of a much-visited place, because our house is out of the tourist paths but in the center of everything at the same time!

A special place!

  • 5 of 5

This charming apartment offers the rare, rare opportunity to have a one-of-a-kind experience in Venice. From peering out the beautiful old windows in the morning, through a sojourn on the dock during the day or in the sparkling evening, we had the privilege of being able to witness daily life on the Grand Canal. Other reviewers have painted a more detailed picture of the facilities and wonderful neighborhood, but I would just like to say that my husband and I feel extremely fortunate to have found this unique and delightfully intimate refuge.

What a fantastic place to spend a Venetian holiday. Amazing

  • 5 of 5

The room is small but all you need. The bed was big and comfortable. The position is perfect - very central. The balcony overlooking the Grand Canal is awesome. We spent all our time watching life row by - loved it. I would not hesitate in recommending this wonderful property.

A Unique Experience in Venice

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for a couple looking for a unique experience in Venice. The room is very quiet if the windows are closed, but we enjoyed leaving the windows open to hear the activity on the canal. There is hardly any boat traffic at night so the gentle sound of the water lapping against the building is very calming. Very convenient to two waterbus stops. This place is so perfectly located in Venice. We were close to everything without being subjected to the crowds. The grocery store close to the apartment is well stocked and the restaurant is excellent with friendly staff. We just had a great time during our three day visit and recommend this apartment without any hesitation. The owner is very responsive and the local caretaker spoke English well. Very good communication. I don't believe that there are many properties like this in Venice. We feel very fortunate to have found this one.

Best location in Venice

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location. Not only can you sit out On the Grand Canal and watch the world go bye, but you are centrally located to walk to all the top spots in Venice. Small but a great value for your money considering the location.

What sets this apart from other accomodations in Venice is the dock. We spent most evening just watching the comings and goings on the Grand Canal. The area isn't too touristy but also not too far from anything. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
