About Sebastiano Zafalon

I am Venetian and always lived in Venice. I love my city and hope to make you love it too.

Sebastiano Zafalon purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Sebastiano Zafalon chose Venice city center

I grow up in this neighborhood and still live here. We bought this apt in this area becouse is perfect as for a short as for a long break in Venice

What makes this apartment unique

This beautiful apartment at the first floor is in a central location, close to all the main sites but in a residential area, so it is easy to do the everyday shopping as venetians do. It is also very easy to reach from the bus station (where you arrive from the airport) or from the train station.

Superb location

  • 5 of 5

This is a bright, spacious apartment. It is within easy walking distance of the sites, but far enough away from the craziness of the Rialto Bridge and San Marco to feel like a Venice neighbourhood. It is also close to the excellent restaurants and shops of St Barnaba. The front faces onto a pleasant square where you can watch the local florist tend his wares. The back faces onto a somewhat busy walkway, and you will hear some "hub bub" of happy throngs.

It is an easy and pleasant walk from the railway station. We appreciated the excellent washer and dryer.

Sebastiano is a pleasure to deal with and provides an excellent orientation.

Great place in convenience part of Venice!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very nice and had everything we needed for a family of five! The location was great and there is a small pizza and gelato shop right around the corner for whenever you are feeling lazy and don't want to cook. The host was great and provided us with recommendations on where to eat and what to see and gave us a map of the area. The unit also has a washer and dryer downstairs that was very handy. The WiFi was strong and my kids were able to use all their electronic toys (iPad, iPhone's, etc). Overall a great place!

Venice Bliss

  • 5 of 5

My son and I spent a week in the San Rocco apartment. It was exactly as depicted on homeaway. Sebastiano met us at the apartment and took time to give us tips on Venice and the apartment. Thr apartment was clean and well appointed. We could walk everywhere we wanted to go and it is close to the Ferrovia and the San Toma vaporetto stop. An added benefit to the location was that when we got lost, which was a lot, we could just ask how to get to the frari church. We would definitely stay here again should we be blessed enough to return to Venice.

Highly recommended. Would certainly stay again.

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was everything that we could hope for. The photographs don't do it justice. It is large, with clean modern facilities and has everything you need. It is in the perfect location right in the centre of the city. Sebastiano was very helpful, explaining everything including where was worth visiting and how to get around. I would certainly recommend this property to friends and should I visit Venice again it will be the first place that I would book if available. Thank you Sebastiano for a wonderful stay.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was exactly as advertised. It was very clean and well supplied. We didn't need to get anything except food. The location is very convenient. There are many restaurants close by. Sebastiano was a great host. He met us at the apartment (after we got lost) and walked us through the operation of everything. He gave us a map and marked sightseeing tips and restaurant recommendations. I would recommend that you close the shutters and windows at night as the noise can be very loud. Apparently people in Venice never sleep! If I'm ever lucky enough to return to Venice I would love to stay at this apartment again.
