After a long day of exploring in Venice, imagine what a pleasure it will be to return home to your own apartment in Castello, La Serenissima’s most authentic neighborhood. You’ll get a taste of the real Venice while enjoying a can’t-miss location.
“If you read a lot, nothing is as great as you’ve imagined. Venice is—Venice is better.” ~ Fran Lebowitz
The apartment is on the top floor and just off the wide, sunny waterfront walkway that leads to St. Mark's Square, just 10 minutes from your door, but a world away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist track. It's a short, picturesque walk to Venice’s major sights, as well as some of the city’s lesser-known charms, and close to both the Arsenale and Giardini vaporetto stops.
The quiet, light-filled apartment is comfortable and efficient, about 55 sq. meters (just under 600 sf). It has an open kitchen and living room area. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and cookware.
PLEASE NOTE the bedroom setup to ensure the apartment is the most comfortable choice for you. The main bedroom is spacious and has a "matrimoniale" bed (160 cm or about 62 inches, slightly wider than a US queen). There is also small single bedroom with one single bed; this room can also be used as a workspace, using the small wall-mounted desk. There is also a small loft area with low ceilings where an older child could sleep (not recommended for adults). The living room has a sleeper sofa that could sleep two -- however please note that occupancy is limited to four people total. The apartment is not the most comfortable choice for two couples, or for single adults who don't wish to share beds.
The top-floor flat is up 58 steep steps, with no elevator, and boasts lovely views from every window. On one side, you overlook a quiet, green park and see all the way to the Lido. Watch boats plying the waters by the bell tower and cathedral on San Giorgio Maggiore and glimpse Santa Maria della Salute, visible in the distance from the bedroom and the loft. There is wifi in the apartment.
