Why Mario chose Venice city center

My family has always had this property.

What makes this apartment unique

"Once Great always Great"

  • 5 of 5

We came back to Venice after two years and could not pass up the chance to rent this loft again.

Every thing you could want in a special place.This is close to every thing that you need to visit Venice.

The best part is when you open up the window of this third level loft and have the sites and sounds in front of you.

A great stay, thanks again Michael & Francine.

Lovely, comfy, and wonderfully convenient

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for the Biennale and couldn't have been happier with the accommodation. The convenience of being so central without being caught in the madness of St. Marks. Located in a sweet little tucked-away neighborhood with several notable restaurants right at the doorstep: "Local" & "Osteria Oliva Nera" were particularly good. Highly recommend a stay in this studio for a home-away-from-home.

Awesome Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Venice - such a great city. Took a water bus from the cruise terminal and met our guide, who showed us to the Studio. The Studio is near St. Marks, but far enough away to be very private. There is an great Oysteria, pizza, gelato and a fruit and vegetable stand on the street below the Studio. A very complete grocery store is just a few minutes away, so we cooked a few meals. The kitchen has everything you might need. The photographs are a very good representation of the space - it exceeded our expectations.

Nice and perfectly locared!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this nice apartment for 11 days in September 2016. Mario, the owner with whom we communicated through e-mails was easy to deal with and promt to respond to all our questions. The loft is exactly as the pictures. It is easy to access when arriving from the airport or the train station as it is closed to the San Zaccaria vaporetto stop where we were met by the guide. We really enjoyed walking by San Marco everyday or going on the pier to watch the sunset and the activities on the canal.

The apartment is on the top floor of the building, it is quiet, bright, clean and spacious. The bed is confortable and the air conditioning is efficient. It was fun going the Punto grocery stores at about 4 minutes walk to buy local food and wines to prepare some meals in the apartment's well equipped kitchen. The appartment is located near a small canal on Salizzada Dei Greici where you will find several little shops, good restaurants ( Trattoria Da Denis, Local, Oliva Nera), a pastry, a pharmacy, and a take out pizzeria. Yet, it is quiet as the restaurants and shops closed early and there were no loud music. We are very happy and satisfied to have chosen this apartment.

Quiet Well Located Loft

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay this lovely, quiet and well located loft. We spent 4 nights in June 2012 and 3 nights in June 2016. The loft offers a quiet retreat while being not too far (5 min walk) to St. Mark Square and the Dodges Palace. The greetings at the vaporetto station were great, the loft is quiet, clean and well equipped. We will be back!
