We were met at the water taxi by a friend of the owners, a lovely lady who took the time to give us lots of information. A bottle of wine and a cake welcomed us at the apartment. It was spacious, modern, secure and very clean. We really would recommend this apartment. It was in a perfect location, easy walking distance to restaurants and all the attractions.We felt very much at home and would stay here again. Loved it. Thank you for a wonderful stay in Venice.
Location is walking distance to the ferry stop from the airport, and also walking distance to most of the attractions. The apartment is walk-up (1 floor), and is gorgeous (spacious, lots of natural light, and quite a few appliances for somebody to cook in the room if one gets sick of Italian food :)). Close to the farmers/fish market, close to the bridge, and close to the fantastic gelato places. If we come back to Venice (before it sinks), this is the only place I would rent at.

On first impressions we are happy to book this apartment again next year and every time we visit Venice .
This is a lovely apartment in a great location and we would certainly rent it again/recommend it to friends.The apartment is immaculately clean and has all mod cons, microwave dishwasher cooker wii fi tv etc. The bed is vast with a very comfortable memory foam matress and an added bonus of romantic star lighting above. The location is a mere five minutes from the Grand Canal and the San Stae vaporetto stop and yet is in a very peaceful small street away from the hustle and bustle.Rialto bridge and market were a ten minute walk and St Marks was only half an hour. The location itself is very central to all areas of Venice and being so close to the Vaporetto stop means you can explore very easily. The museum of modern art, the perfume and costume museum and the Ca D'ore musum are virtually on the doorstep.
There are plenty of food shops cafes bars and reataurants in the surrounding strees and sqares and we never had to walk more than ten minutes to find excellent places to eat/enjoy cafe life and watch the world go by. We can particularly recommend Restaurant Muro Venizi in Rio Tera dei Frari and the Majer cafe at Calle Larga Rossa.
The owner of the property Guido could not have been nicer, he met us at the Vaporetto stop, helped with our luggage, welcomed us with Prosecco and cake and offered to show us around the neighbourhood.
I would rate this apartment at four and a half stars which at £100 per day is excellent value for money.
Sinfonia was an excellent apartment and Guido was a wonderful host. He greeted us at the "water bus stop" and we walked the 5mins to the flat. He explained keys/amenities and then took us around a little bit of the neighborhood.
In less than 10mins your next to the "Rialto Bridge" and the most wonderful fish market. TOP TIP -Vaporetto tickets, buy them when you arrive dont make the same mistake as us and getting them online! Trying to fight your way to the one and ONLY machine at the airport is futile! Just leave the airport and walk to the "Water bus station" and buy a single or return (15/30 euro) "Alilaguna"water bus company to Venice. Then once in Venice buy your daily or weekly travel pass for the ACTV Vaporetto.
Its a wonderful place and having a very comfortable flat to come in after a long day with a cold bottle was lovely. Plenty of room and a big bed, sofa and and handy washing machine. We'll visit again!
