Overview

Venice city center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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

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.

Suitability:
  • Groups
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Singles
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous apartment with an ideal location just yards from St Marks Square but tucked away in a quiet corner. Family of four for a long weekend had a great time and what a surprise when we opened the shutters to see gondolas passing right by us... the pictures above do not lie! Only recommendation I would make is shop at the Coop supermarket by the Grand Canal near the Rialto bridge where Calle Carbon meets Riva del Carbon. Much nicer experience than the Coop Alleanza! Roberto and Matilde were so helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay again if we ever venture back to Venice. Thank you so much..

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during Easter and this property was perfect for our family of four. Nicely furnished, very clean, excellent service perfect location and overall unbelievable canal view. We admired so many gondolas that I guess I would be able to ride one by myself. Comfortable living area, good beds, the bathroom and kitchen were really nicely done. We rent through VRBO pretty consistently and this apartment was one of our best finds. I cannot recommend it highly enough. In fact, we have recommended it to several friends already. When we arrived, the kitchen was already stocked for breakfast. What a pleasant surprise and really made it easy to transition to sightseeing. Thanks so much to Mr. Robertoand his staff. As others have written, this is where we will stay again in Venice.

Perfecion

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic apartment! The location was ideal. It was right in the heart of the action, but tucked away so it was quiet at night. just a 2 min walk to Saint Marks square. Steps away from shops and restaurants. The apartment itself was lovely. very clean. nice rooms. Air conditioning if you need it. The view of the canal is awesome! We will stay here again if we ever make it back!

AWESOME! Loved this apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best apartments we've ever stayed in. The location is incredible, just a two minute walk from busy St Mark's Square but is so quiet and peaceful. The beds were great, the apartment spacious and you can watch some of the gondola rides (and be serenaded) from the living room window. There were two adults and two kids staying here and we had the best time. Andrea was great to deal with and responded quickly to my many questions. I highly recommend this apartment and would stay here again if we go back to Venice.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, it is quite rare to receive such a nice Review without even asking. Our job is often thankless, people more easily find the time to write when they are not happy than when they are. This is why your Review is really really appreciated. Thank you very much.

Good accommodation perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The apart is good quality featured and fully equipped. Good wi-fi and air-conditioning, good kitchen equipement good beds (a bit too soft for our taste but well, habits), extremely quiet.

Easy access (1st floor). It faces a really nice canal where we saw gondolas and gondolas, fantastic.

Position is the best we could ask for: just behind Saint-Mark square, less than 100 meters, perfect for our sight-seeing, we didn’t waste time. Furthermore the area is not a usual tourist path and, even if so central, it is quiet and agreable. The apart itself is extremely quiet as it faces canals and a beautiful internal private courtyard sheltering the whole building.

Few meters from the apart there is the gondolas deposit and main start point, so if u wanna enjoy Gondolas tours u can easily catch it there.

Finally, thanks to this perfect accommodation we really enjoyed our stay and we deeply exploited our (too short) time in Venice.

Definitely recommended.

Convenient, spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a great, spacious apartment that is steps from St. Marco's Square. We enjoyed the gondola traffic beneath our living room windows. The kitchen was well equipped, too. There are lots of places nearby to eat and to buy food to take home. The only drawback we experienced was the intermittent internet connection. Thankfully we were out most of the day so it wasn't a problem.

Hearth of Venice, few meters from St. Marc square, perfect for an easy sight-seeing.

A private internal XVI Cent. Venetian courtyard (Corte Zorzi) allow access to the building and also shelter the apart from any possible tourist’s hustle and bustle. In fact the apart is absolutely quiet.

Charming view on the nice canal behind its windows (Canale Orseolo) where just gondolas are allowded to navigate all day long (gondolas deposit and main departure area is 50 meters far).
