About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 2-6) Penthouse Canal View

This lovely penthouse is placed in a typical XVIII Venetian palace, in Santa Croce district, a central area that has been spared the flux of tourists and where you can still find the typical and honest side of the town.

The penthouse has been renovated in 2007 and lived by the owners until few years ago. That’s why you will find all the comforts you need to feel as you were at home.

Each room is bright and sunny, enjoy panoramic view on the canal and the surrounding roofs and “altanas”, the typical Venitian terraces placed on top of the buildings. Sun goes down in the living room setting a charming atmosphere.

The area:

The penthouse is only 10 min walk from the train station and 15 min from the bus station. San Stae waterbus stop is only 1 minute away without bridges to pass trough. You can enjoy your breakfast in one the many typical bars and restaurants around campo San Giacomo (1 min), visit the church - one of the oldest in the town - where there are paintings by Veronese and Lotto. The Natural History Museum and the Modern Art Museum are both 2 minute walk. Rialto fresh food market and Rialto Bridge are only 5 minute away and from there you can reach San Marco square with a 10 min lovely walk.

Owners will be pleased to suggest their guests unusual trips, to set personal chef dinner, giving advices for restaurants and shops and do every thing you need to get the best from your Venice experience.

  • 5 of 5

Giorgia's flat is spacious, bright, well furnished, and conveniently located (close to shops, restaurants, the Rialto, the vaporetto, and the railway station). Since there is no elevator, prospective tenants need to be able to negotiate a couple of dozen or so stairs, but the climb is well worth it, and the experience of living in a neighborhood away from the crush of tourists is highly recommended! We would happily stay here again.

Very clean and spacious

  • 5 of 5

The property is wonderfully maintained. We only stayed in Venice a couple of days, but this property definitely added to our great experience.

You have to go up about three flight of stairs total. But that wasn’t an issue for us. There is no elevator.

Other than that, the overall property was very spacious and made us feel very comfortable.

Giorgia was a great host. Very prompt and professional. We will definitely stay here again in the future!

Great location, and easy to get to from the train station via water taxi

  • 4 of 5

We found the apartment perfectly suited for the four of us. The location was great and it was nice and quiet at night so you did not have to have your windows closed on the cool evenings. The kitchen was nicely equipped for light use. There were nice restaurants close by and easy to find. Georgia was extremely responsive and helpful with getting us to the apartment and setting up water taxi service for us. Overall the apartment was great. We had a small issue with smell in the larger bedroom from some kind of issue with the plumbing which we had to move from that bedroom into the small room with the pullout sofa. Georgia tried to resolve it while we were there, but since we were only there two nights, we do not know if it has been fixed. Lastly, make sure you can handle the four flights of stairs to the apartment. We did not have an issue with this, but make sure you can carry your luggage up the four flights, or pack lots of small bags, LOL. Cheers!
