About the property

Meridiana & Fontanella

Venice, two apartment located in the heart of Venice a few steps from the Ca' d'Oro water bus stop, between Canal Grande and Rio Santa Sofia, close to the main shopping street (Strada Nuova) and Rialto Bridge, in a very peaceful 'calle', is a recently restored property that can be rented as a whole or divided into two separate apartments: Meridiana (a studio) and Fontanella (a bedroom apartment).

The property as a whole: The apartments can be used together (the efficiency apartment becomes a pretty and comfortable double-bedded room with bathroom). They are the ideal accommodation for a couple with two children or two couples or friends wishing to be in absolute privacy.

These very comfortable apartments have just been renovated. They are equipped with microwave, Hi-Fi equipment, television, safe box, flat iron and hair dryer; linen is provided.

How to reach the house: The house is easy to reach from both the Railway Station or the parking of Piazzale Roma, by 'vaporetto', the typical Venetian ferry (number 1, direction San Marco, stopping at Ca'd'Oro) or by water taxi. From the Railway Station/Piazzale Roma is also really simple to reach the house on foot: go straight on in "Strada Nuova" and turn in the street of Ca' d'Oro (nearly 20 minutes of walk).

Location of the house: Ca' della Fontanella & Meridiana is situated in a wonderful area for shops and restaurants. St. Mark'Square can be reached on foot in 15 minutes and you are within easy walking distance to Ca'd'Oro, Rialto Bridge and the Fondamenta Nuove on the lagoon, where you can catch the vaporetto to the islands of Murano and Burano.

At Campo di Santa Sofia (nearly 3 minutes on foot) there is a gondola service (at a very cheap fee) that provides a ferry service across Gran Canal to reach the old famous market of Rialto.

This location is unusual because it is both in the heart of things, yet it is on a quiet and peaceful street.

Great location, comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

The communication with the owner and property managers was great. We corresponded with three different people, all of whom were quick to respond, friendly and helpful.

Re: property location. It was perfect. It's in a lively neighborhood with shops, a Coop supermarket, restaurants, and taverns. It's a 1 min walk to the vaporetto stop on the Grand Canale (you won't have to drag your luggage up and down stairs), 2 min walk to the gondole traghetto, and a 7 min walk to the vaporetto that goes to Murano/Burano. 15-20 min walk to major tourist sites.

Re: apartment features/amenities (Meridiana apartment). Comfortable, clean and simple. It was nice to have fast, reliable internet and the terrace.

Great Location. Perfect for my needs. Recommended.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Meridiana room in April for a week. It was a perfect location. A two minute walk from the Ca’ d’Oro Vaporetto stop, and 30 seconds from the Strada Nova. Follow the crowds on the Strada Nova to walk to Piazza San Marco Rialto Bridge, or in the opposite direction to the Railway Station or Piazza Roma and the buses/cars out of the city.

The room is exactly how it looks in the pictures. And also very quiet despite being so close to one of the main routes through the city. It was nice and clean too. The water pressure in the shower was a bit low, but could be increased by adjusting the head, but would have been perfect with a little more pressure. The water was always hot within a minute, which was needed to sooth the aches and pains of walking around Venice. ;-) The internet worked well with no drop outs and was quite fast.

My flight was delayed, but Laura, who was meeting me, was very friendly and welcoming despite the delay. She was also available for any problems, should they have arisen. I would recommend this property to anyone travelling alone, or a close couple. (as it is just one room and bathroom) It was reasonably priced too.

Il posto ideale!

  • 5 of 5

Monolocale piccolo ma molto accogliente, vicinissimo alla fermata Ca' d'Oro del vaporetto, ben accessibile con i bagagli perché è al piano terra.

Grazie per i bei giorni trascorsi: abbiamo vissuto 5 giorni da veri veneziani in questa "calle" molto tranquilla ma ad un minuto dalla via principale Strada Nuova.

Torneremo sicuramente nella stagione più calda per poter fare colazione nel cortiletto privato!

Logement conforme à la description mais peu de wifi et souvent des odeurs d'égoût

  • 4 of 5

Accueilli par Lucas vers 21h00 à l'embarcadère fundamento nove, ligne bleue de la liaison aéroport centre ville, l'appartement est situé à 10 minutes à pied.

Il est conforme à la description.

Les trois bémols sont : la faible luminosité, il n'y a qu'une porte fenêtre donnant sur une cour ouverte partagée avec l'appartement. La lumière artificielle reste nécessaire.

Second bémol, les odeurs d'égoût qui nous ont gêné plusieurs jours sans comprendre leur origine.

Troisième point à signaler, le wifi. Il était aléatoire et à faible débit. La box n'étant pas dans l'appartement utilisé, je n'ai pas su localiser le problème.

Dernier point de détail que nous n'avions pas compris, pour le départ, inutile d'attendre le propriétaire, il suffit de laisser les clefs sur la table et de claquer la porte.

En conclusion, le studio est très situé, près des stations ca d'oro ou fondamento nove, proche de la rue commerçante Strada nove et un peu à l'écart du bruit.

Un bon produit rapport qualité prix

appartement agréable bien situé dans un rue calme. Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Lucas malgré un retard d'une heure.

C'est une location que je n'hésite pas à recommandé.
