Patrizia was a fabulous host, getting in touch well in advance to arrange our meeting. She patiently waited at the Rialto stop; we eventually made it on the 5th vaporetto (the line was long). She walked us to the apartment, indicating various landmarks so we can find our way in Venice’s maze. The apartment is as in the photos, but the view of the canal, bridge and gondola still took our breath away. An “only in Venice” experience: looking down at a gondola traffic jam from your living room window.
Things to note: early morning noise from day-to-day activities such as garbage pick-ups or laundry drop-offs, gondola singers throughout the day (although if this offends, I suggest foregoing Venice altogether).
Suggestion: would it be possible to put a screen on some of the windows so that they can be opened to cool the apartment without letting mosquitoes in?
great stay in venice
Wish we could have stayed longer
Recommend this location for Venice apt.
I was luky to have known so a Happy family.
Fabulous Apartment in Middle of Venice
Patrizia's apartment is fabulous. Patrizia gave us directions to meet her at a water taxi stop then took us to her apartment. There were a few flights of stairs but this apartment was worth it. There were two bedrooms (one with a single bed which was perfect as a luggage room) and well stocked bathroom and kitchen. The apartment is in a fabulous location. Situated right on the bend of a canal meant that we could see the passing parade of gondolas and small motor boats all day. There were two small balconies to view this from, both off the main bedroom. Even watching the garbage and supplies boats early in the morning was fascinating (though if you like your sleep-ins it may be a bit too noisy). Just at the end of the lane way was one of the main thoroughfares from St Mark's Square to the Grand Canal and a water taxi stop. We will definitely stay here again if we are ever fortunate enough to visit Venice again.
Just as advertised
Our stay in Venice was lovely. The reviews warned us about the noise in the morning from the garbage boats...but the singing later on was glorious so it almost made up for it.
A great place to get the best of Venice
The appartement is beautifuly decorated and furnished. The kitchen is fully equiped : oven, gas-top, fridge, micro-wave, even a dishwasher ! Ustensils, coffee, tea, sugar and spices.
To top it all : biscuits and prosecco !
Finaly, our hostess waited for us at the vaporeto in pourring rain, for a long time as we got lost.
The most romantic apartment
Perfect location in San Marco. Cannot get more romantic. We were serenaded every evening with opera sung by passing gondoliers. Beautiful apartment.
