Overview

About the property

Hearth of Venice, canal view, qietness, comfort: perfect for easy sight-seeing

An initial Message instead of a direct booking Request would be appreciated as it would allow to introduce themselves and receive complete informations (full brochure) with no pressure.

Charming private apartment in the hearth of Venice, finely furnished, quiet and comfortable. Encased by canals and a private courtyard (magnificent Corte Zorzi) allowing access to the building, Astarte apart is absolutely quiet as it is sheltered by any possible hustle and bustle of tourists.

Anyway the area is not a massive touristic path, it is an hidden corner just behind Saint_Mark’s square.

Typical “battuto veneziano” floors, ceiling beams and Murano glass chandliers, within a magnificent canal view over a secondary canal where just gondolas are allowed to navigate, bring guests in a real and agreeable venetian atmosphere.

Astarte equipment allow guests to prepare any meal for an easy self-catering.

Great apartment in Venice

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this apartment during our 2 days in Venice. The apartment is exactly as described - central location (literally steps away from Piazza San Marco but still feels like you are away from all the crowds when you are in the apartment), easy walk to where water taxis drop you off to/from airport, clean space and managers were easy to deal with (from the booking to giving us many suggestions of where to go when we arrived). We did not cook at all in the apartment but it looked like it was well stocked with everything you would need. When we were not out touring the city, we sat at the living room windows and watched the gondolas pass by. We would rent here again if we come back to Venice.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Venice was the first stop on our three weeks in Italy. We just arrived home last night! This apartment was in the perfect location for visiting Venice. It is near the sites, but down a quiet road and away from the hustle of shops and tourists. We loved having the canal view and watching the boats go by. Very comfortable space for three of us!

Fabulous Apartment

  • 4 of 5

As a family with two teenagers (14 & 17), we wanted enough space and a good location. We got both. Fantastic location, plenty of room and a lovely clean space as well. Exactly as described and pictured. Communication and access was easy. We highly recommend this Venice paradise.

Nicely updated and great location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was awesome! Starting with the canal view, you can spend the day watching gondolas and boats going by. The apartment is nicely updated and has everything that you would need for an extended stay. Matilda, the owner met us and showed us everything about the apartment as well as where to find the grocery store, excellent restaurants, and of course the best gelato store.

The two bedrooms are good sized. We had 4 people and had plenty of room. The apartment also has air conditioning so sleeping at night was comfortable and cool. The location is convenient to the Rialto water taxi stop so you don't have to drag luggage too far.

All-in-all, this is a great apartment in the hear to of Venice. It is convenient to everything!

A Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful way to end our vacation! This apartment was perfect in every way, with comfortable beds, excellent amenities friendly people, and and a stunning location. It is a special treat to open almost any window and watch the gondolas cruising slowly below.

Traveler Hint: Spend a euro and buy a DETAILED street map! Venice is a maze of tiny streets!

The location is perfect, mere seconds by foot from St Mark's Square and the water. It seems that every street has beautiful shops and wonderful restaurants every few meters!

Our apartment featured all modern amenities, all in perfect working order, except for the internet, which is NOT the apartment's fault. Our connection was fine, it is the service provider that is at fault!

A very comfortable stay, made even better by Matilda, the agent of the owner, who is a New Jersey ex-pat. Thanks, Matilda, you were super!
