Venice city center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 double bedrooms, 1 dressing room , 2 bathrooms

Luxurious, spacious penthouse  with 3 terraces in an important  historic palazzo of the 12th century, built by spice-and silk traders from the orient. The interior design reflects  the period and origin of the Palazzo and is adapted to modern lifestyle in a unique way; the apartment is a true oasis  in Cannaregio - a very special  part of  Venice  where you can still find typical Venetian atmosphere and scenes, away from  mass tourism but  close to all the main attractions and surrounded by numerous Restaurants and wine bars. There are spectacular views from all three terraces over the roofs of Venice as far as the Campanile of San Marco, and the panoramic window overlooking Murano, which is akin to a Canaletto seascape painting, changing colors according to light and weather. On all the terraces you can relax and breath the fresh sea air, accompanied by the sound of sea gulls.  The first is dedicated to relaxing, with a sun bed and deck chairs; the second has a modern barbecue and eating area, while the third is ideal for breakfast or evening cocktails.

The  penthouse apartment itself of approx.170 sq m occupies the whole of the third and top floor as a single unit and is accessed by an elevator. It is luxuriously furnished in mainly oriental style with precious art work. Ancient beamed ceilings, which are  illuminated  by spot lights, are visible throughout the apartment and create a very special atmosphere. There is  one  large living room with dining area, from where you enter a fully equipped small kitchen under the eves;  opposite,  again under the eves, there is a relaxation/television room with a pull out double bed couch (adaptable into a 140 cm wide bed )… Also off the living room is another bedroom (160 cm bed width) with an own terrace; and finally, a shower / bathroom in beautiful Venetian style mosaic. Whereas the master double bedroom (160cm large bed) with its own  terrace, facing west, is a separate unit and has a luxurious en-suite marble bathroom with mosaic inlays and a jacuzzi whirl-pool and shower. It is accessed through a studio/dressing room with  2 single pull out beds and has another terrace, facing east. There is  Wi-Fi, satellite television, washing machine and a dual mode air conditioning/heating system, as well as underfloor-and central heating throughout the whole apartment.

although it would sleep 7 guests , we only accept 5

Mark and I certainly enjoyed our stay in your lovely apartment. Besides being the nicest we have stayed in our visits to several European conferences, it was a most convenient location.

Stunning penthouse-apartmen in a fantastic palazzo

  • 5 of 5

My family have stayed in this beautiful apartment three times now and it is the best apartment in Venice. It has accommodation for 6, 3 balconies with superb views of the Venice skyline. It is the penthouse of an ancient and imposing Palazzo Mastelli with lovely garden scrubs and trees at the entrance and even has a magnificent entrance hall both from the canal and the street. It is on the third floor with a lift so ideal for us slightly older folk. Located near Madonna Dell' Orto church the apartment is well appointed especially having air conditioning and a beautiful living room of immense size. The spectacular window view to Murano and the church are unique I think. So for a family holiday in residential Cannaregio but minutes from the Grand Canal you will find this apartment superb - and the host is gracious and excellent at giving you information and ensuring you have the holiday of lifetime.

A Beautifull apartment

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful apartment with good access,close to restaurants and convienient for shops, made the more special by Alexandra's prompt and friendly helpfulness, both through the booking process + on our arrival.

The photos show the oriental themed decor, but not it's spaciouness. We were 2 couples, and each felt we had loads of persnal space, with balconies as well.

The reliable elevator, wifi laundry + aircon made our 8 night stay a holiday to remember.

We would recomend you try to include Torcello, and "Row Venice".

séjour superbe !

  • 5 of 5

Très bel appartement, où nous avons passé en famille (6 personnes dont 4 enfants ado) un super séjour.

L'appartement est surprenant et décoré magnifiquement avec des oeuvres d'art Thai, et a tout le confort nécessaire, salles de bain, cuisine équipée. Il est pourvu de plusieurs terrasses offrant des belles vues sur les toits de Venise.

Il est très agréable de rester dans le quartier au nord de Venise pour fuir le tourisme de masse, et il est très facile de se rendre sur les principaux sites à pied.

Autre facilité sympa en été : prendre le vaporetto à 2 min et accès direct au Lido pour baignades et plages (ce que nous avons avons fait une journée).

Je recommande grandement cette location pour un séjour court ou long à Venise.

Atmospheric and Classy

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at this wonderful apartment and it had not lost its ability to charm us.

Well furnished, exquisitely decorated and ; nearly unheard of in Venice , not one but three totally private outside terraces !! It is close to vaporetto stop at Orto from which you can access the whole city and islands.

Set in a quiet campo in Canareggio , one doesn't have to travel far to find fine dining and a real local feel. Strada Novo is less than ten minutes walk where you will find shopping and the route to all the major sites in Venice.

The apartment is thoroughly cleaned for your arrival and is kept in exceptional repair.

If you want to experience ,the real Venice' then do not miss the chance to stay here!

We will be back.

Best Appartment ever!

  • 5 of 5

Vielen Dank!! Es war ein wunderschöner Aufenthalt im traumhaften Cannaregio. Aber das Highlight war absolut das traumhafte Appartement von Alexandra auf 170 m2 über den Dächern von Venedig. Wir 4 kommen sicher sehr bald wieder in den "showroom Voltan"!!!!!!!!!!

Cannaregio is an insider area of Venice loved by locals. It's great to discover a neighbourhood largely unchanged by the city's tourist hordes. Its bars, restaurants and shops are great places to taste local life attractions in the nearby surroundings, which is largely unchanged by the city's tourist hordes. Its bars, restaurants and shops are great places to taste local life. Cultural attractions: Tintoretto house, Madonna dell' Orto Church, where Tintoretto is buried. Campo dei Mori with the interesting story of the 3 traders coming from the Orient in the 12th century. Many Restaurants and bars along the Fondamenta della Misericordia. Little stores and supermarkets nearby...vaporetto station only 5 min away from the apartment in the historical palazzo.
