About the property

La Tana is a self catering apartment easy to reach ad in an ideal position for visiting Venice, this 613 square feet apartment is very close to the public boat stop, where direct lines from the Station and "Marco Polo" airport arrive. The apartment is in a "campo" (long square) delimited by the ancient walls of "Arsenale" (a huge dockyard which made the power of Venice in the past, nowadays a restricted area belonging to the Navy which hosts temporarily Art Exhibitions). It is at the ground floor and on the back has a little private "corte" (yard), green and sunny in the morning. The building dates back at the beginning of XX century and is very quiet: there is a little convent of nuns at one side and the apartment at the upper floor is empty . The interiors have all comforts, air conditioning and are nicely decorated. The living room has one window, a sofa-bed with two single beds, a table and sittings for 4 people. The kitchen is fully fitted with microwave and kettle, a double sink, fridge-freezer, gas cooker with gas oven . The bathroom has a shower, a window, basin, bidet, wc. The spacious bedroom has a double bed, two windows and a big closet.

What makes this apartment unique

The area is at few minutes walking from Saint Mark Square and close to all other main touristic attractions. The boat stop Arsenale, which relies you to the airport, is at only 3 minutes from the apartment. Arsenale area’s advantage is that of being very central but not yet spoiled by massive tourism. Maybe for its closeness to the Biennale Art Exposition (the “Corderie” entrance is just in face of the apartment), this part of the city is preferred by artists or advised travelers for its unique and still authentic charm. At 350 yd from the apartment you can reach the lively Via Garibaldi, with all its colored food shops (now rare in Venice!) and cafes where locals love to meet at evening for a chat or a spritz (a popular aperitif). This is the only “main street” of Venice, large and straight, built by Napoleon over a canal. From there, in the summer you can make a relaxing stop in the shadow at Giardini (the Public Gardens), or take a walk on the Riva dei Sette Martiri, the promenade along the lagoon, which serves also as a port for very important yachts. You will thus enjoy another authentic aspect of this marvelous city, apart from its countless Renaissance and Byzantine art treasures: its Marine vocation. (This year in May we will host the America’s Cup Regatta). Another spot unknown to tourists not far from Arsenale is the beautiful Gardens of Sant'Elena, a green harbor of peace from where you can enjoy spectacular sunsets over the city and see just opposite the coast of the Lido, the beach resort of Venice, with its Liberty luxurious hotels (where the International Film Festival is held every year in the beginning of September).

Pretty little apartment in Arsenale

  • 5 of 5

Lovely little apartment in Arsenale with small but pretty courtyard garden perfect for breakfast. The apartment is well appointed with everything needed for a holiday in Venice. It was spotlessly clean ( this has not always been our experience with rental apartments) Its in a good location and close to shops on Via Garibaldi. The owner Cristina responded very quickly to our queries when booking and sent us all the information we needed when arriving in Venice. We would recommend this apartment to couples looking for somewhere quiet and a good base for exploring the city.

El apartamento está muy bien, es igual que en las fotos,

  • 5 of 5

Tiene de todo, es perfecto para cuatro personas. La chica que nos recibió fue muy amable.

La ubicación del apartamento también está bien, a unos 15 minutos caminando a la plaza de San Marco.

La experiencia ha sido genial! !, Venecia es preciosa, y lo mejor es perderse por sus calles! !!.

Appartement très propre, de bonne taille pour un court séjour à Venise, très bien équipé. Situé dans un quartier calme (appréciable après une journée de visites) mais très proche (5 à 10 minutes à pied) de la station Vaporetto Arsenale, de la place San Marco et de la Via Garibaldi pour ses commerces "alimentaires", bars et restaurants.

Précieuses indications de Christina et très bon accueil d'Oxanna à l'arrivée.

Des moustiques évidemment mais un bon spray, la clim et les moustiquaires aux fenêtres ont vite fait de les calmer !

  • 5 of 5

Très bon séjour à Venise! Nous recommandons l'appartement de Cristina: très bien équipé ainsi que pour bébé, confortable, chaleureux et bien situé. Le quartier Castello est calme et magnifique avec ses jardins. L appartement est à proximité de la lagune, des commerces et restaurants... Le plus: le contact avec la propriétaire Cristina qui nous apporte de précieux conseils sur l appartement et Venise, ce qui permet de bien organiser son voyage. Et le très bon accueil d 'Oxanna à l arrivée qui est sympathique et disponible.

Car: not necessary

At 250 mt from the "Arsenale" waterbus stop, where lines from the Station and "Marco Polo" airport arrive.

At ten minutes walking from Saint Mark Square and most touristic attractions. Arsenale is a vibrant neighborhood still authentic and the site of many art exhibitions: the Biennale section of Corderie, Biennale Architecture and Biennale Theatre have their entrance just in front of the apartment. At 300 meters you can reach the lively Via Garibaldi, with all its colored food shops (now rare in Venice!). For a relaxing pause there is the near Giardini (gardens)in the shadow of secular trees, with playground for children. You can stroll along the Riva dei Sette Martiri, just outside the apartment, watching the whole Saint Mark Basin and admiring at close distance the tycoons' yachts moored. Few tourists know the beautiful Gardens of Sant'Elena, not too far, from where you can enjoy a spectacular sunset and see the coast of the Lido (Venice's elegant beach), at only three waterbus stops from Arsenale.
