Charming, relaxing, romantic…nestled along a canal in the middle of the quiet sestieri of San Polo…Otre Il Giardino is a total delight. Start your day off right with a great breakfast in the hotel’s private garden. Explore San Polo by day or night and feel what it’s like to live in Venice. All the tourist highlights are within easy access... More

My wife and I stayed at Oltre Il Giardino for 6 nights during our honeymoon and couldn't have been more pleased with the attention and peaceful location this charming and historic home offered us.

Just the perfect place to stay...quiet, secret, modern and spacious, with up to date facilities, and a most wonderful friendly and helpful staff. Close to everywere but far enough away from the crowds ... such peace and tranquility. Absolute gem of a walled garden setting for your breakfasts to prepare for the day.

We stayed for eight nights and agreed it was the only place we would ever think of staying if/when we return to Venice. Spacious room, with clean classic decor, overlooking a walled garden.

We spent a week at Oltre Il Giardino,an oasis of tranquility through a canal-side door you might miss at first glance. Wonderful ground floor suite with access to a small terrace, great breakfasts in a walled garden and just a short walk from the San Toma water bus stop. Best of all, the helpful attitude of the owners. They couldn't... More

This was a wonderful find. A boutique hotel with only six rooms, the house (formerly owned by Mahler's widow) has a lovely walled garden where breakfast is served on fine days. It's quiet location belies its convenience for accessing many of Venice's San Polo attractions, and it is only a few hundred yards from I Frari and a ten-minute walk... More

Staying in San Polo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The house, which once belonged to Alma Mahler, the composer's widow who lived there in the 1920's, lies next to a small canal just a stone’s throw from the Church of the Frari, has now been turned into an exclusive but homely retreat. This enchanting place in the hearth of Venice offers something unique to those visiting the city. Our guests will feel that they have really found a home away from home. ... more   less
