About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Historic San Marco Penthouse Apartment is the perfect location for your holiday: here you will have the possibility to spend your Venetian days in a unique and fascinating location. 

This large, airy and bright, non-smoking apartment is located on the third (last) floor, in a 500 year old architecturally-significant Palazzo. 

Renovated by a famous architect, the apartment is designed to create different spaces within it's wide open area: the wide living area with couch, chaise longues and armchairs; two cozy spaces with desks; a fully-equipped gourmand kitchen; a TV/Reading corner with a queen size sleep sofa and opposite a corner that accommodates two single beds (which can be pushed together to function as a King bed). 

The master bedroom with Queen bed is totally separated from other spaces and is located in the opposite side, compared to the position of the single beds.

The penthouse has two complete bathrooms: one with a shower and one with a tub (we did renovations in March 2014).

The apartment is equipped with all the modern comforts and facilities ,including air conditioning (Central Air Unit controllable in 4 zones), independent heating, free wifi internet connection, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave oven...

In this very unusual and spacious Venetian property, very quite and silent, you have the possibility to relax after an exciting day and also take small daily breaks since it's literally within steps of the most popular sights, shops, and restaurants in San Marco.

Thanks to its central location you can easily reach Piazza San Marco and the Basilica, the Doge’s Palace and the Bridge of Sighs in a few minutes walk. You'll have the opportunity to visit the monuments in the early morning, when they are not too crowded or you can be enchanted by the magic of Piazza San Marco in the night, with the orchestras playing. From the penthouse in 5-10 minutes walking you reach Rialto, Academia, Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Piazza Santo Stefano, etc.

In the immediate neighborhood you'll find a souvenir shop, pharmacy, pâtisserie, newspaper stand, coffee shop, good restaurant and bars, little grocery shop, fruit and vegetable shop, and also all the high fashion shops of the best Italian labels, that are located in this area of Venice.

The apartment is perfect for short or long term stays.

Stay here, you won't regeret it!

  • 5 of 5

We just adored this place! It's SO centrally located to several of the big things, but away enough that you really don't hear the noises beside the church bells which I enjoyed. It was just the 2 of us, but you could fit several more people. We loved the skylight windows and also liked that it had 2 bathrooms. Only complaint is that the bed was hard and towels were thin and hard, but otherwise, we loved it!

Bright and spacious stay for 6

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific weekend here. The property was clean, light and spacious for 6 people. The showers had good pressure and the kitchen was fully equipped. The only thing we could ask for is more toilet paper! This property is absolutely stunning and very well managed. Its location is perfect - less than 5 minutes' walk to Piazza San Marco and close to nice restaurants and shopping. The nearest supermarket is about 900m away. We would all definitely stay here again.

Unique accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, unique apartments situated above the roofs. All 4 of our family members enjoyed this apartment. It was comfortable and well-appointed. We enjoyed listening to the bells of Venice in the evening and had the luxury of closing the windows at night with the air conditioning. The location could not have been better with its proximity to San Marco but its distance from the hordes of tourists.

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at your wonderful San Marco Penthouse. It was perfect for the six of us which included two children. Loved the location and convenience to the places we wanted to go. Although we didn't cook in at night, we enjoyed having the well supplied kitchen. It was nice having windows opening up the sky at night and during the day. We enjoyed wonderful weather throughout our two week stay in Italy. It was my husband and my fourth trip to your beautiful country, but the first time in renting apartments. Would definitely do it again. Bernadette, who met us at the dock in San Marco was very helpful and informative. We appreciated being able to leave our bags in the apartment for a few hours on checkout day so we could spend the morning again enjoying the city.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment with its amazing location (think a few minutes walk to St Marco and it's own private water taxi stop) and uniquely stylish character - it was great value for money.

Five of us stayed during winter and the heating made the large space quite cosy. Everything in terms of the renovation was well thought out, all that you needed was there and worked as it was supposed to. And, the kitchen was well equipped with good quality cookware and plenty of crockery and glassware - which made it easy to have fun staying in.

Our only complaint is that three nights weren't long enough to explore Venice and really relax in the space so if you can spend a week, do it. We'll stay again. Thank you.

Convenient and spacious accommodations for 6+ people

  • 4 of 5

Aside from the 3-4 floor walk-up, the property was clean, spacious, and comfortable for my wife and me. In fact, it could easily accommodate six guests. The only complaint is the lack of any water pressure in the shower, and the inoperable hand held shower head in the bath tub (two bathrooms).
