Lovely sunny and comfortable apartment in a quiet area of Venice. Has a small balcony overlooking a canal. Very close to the main station and bus terminal as well as the San Basilio water bus stop.
Apartment is about a 20 minute walk from the Academia bridge on the Grand Canal.
Host was very helpful and welcoming.
This is a beautiful flat in a quiet corner of the Dorsoduro but in very easy distance of the Zattere, the restaurants of San Barnaba and the lively Campo St Margharita.
Full length windows open on to a view across a quiet canal. The flat is elegantly furnished and very comfortable and spacious for two.
Federica who looks after the flat is warm and helpful, gave us clear directions and met and showed us everything.
This is an ideal place to be for anyone wanting to experience lived in Venice and not merely tourist Venice.
This really is a nice apartment, had everything we needed and nice comfy bed and roomy shower. It helped that the bathroom was away from the bedroom since we were on different schedules! Plenty of room to stretch out - since we ate in the kitchen, all our junk landed on the big dining room table. I had wanted to feel like I was part of everday life in Venice and got that perfectly. The only drawback for us is that for us in our 60's, it was a long walk back from San Marco. If we had been a little closer I might have popped out to do a bit of exploring more than I did. With a 7day waterbus pass and learning that whole system, it did get easier. But for watching the Moms take their kids to school and everyone gather while walking their dogs, and older gentlemen arguing on the bridge - it was GREAT!
We can highly recommend a stay at this beautiful apartment if you fancy staying somewhere just that little bit special. It was our first trip to Venice and this place was perfect in every way. Close enough to walk to the action but far enough away to feel like you could have a little glimpse of the local neighbourhood (it's close to the university and tucked away in a beautiful residential area next to a peaceful canal). Thank you to Federica who ensured our arrival was hassle free (brilliant directions and a perfect host meeting us on the waterfront and taking us to the apartment). We loved our stay.
Spacious airy flat with comfy bed (2 singles pushed together) and views over quiet canal. Easy walking to Accademia and Piazzale Roma , close to vaporetto stop. Good shower but oven slow to heat up! Would go again.
