About the property

Perfect for visiting, no heavily touristic, easy to reach - quality and comfort

An initial Message instead of a direct booking Request would be appreciated as it would allow to introduce themselves and receive complete informations (full brochure) with no pressure.

On the 1st easy floor of an historical, freshly restored building in the hearth of the most charming Venice we propose u an elegant and quiet apartment, named Assolo. The location is just 5 minutes walking from Saint-Mark's square and less than 3 minutes from the closest vaporetto stop (San Zaccaria). Easy to reach from every venetian arrival/departure terminal, the area is the perfect getaway to visit the whole Town without wasting precious time with transports, also (and overall) avoiding massive touristic areas. In fact the area, even though fully central, is no massive tourstic yet and still preserves falvours and sensations of times gone by. In the nearby u can still find (the best) family run restaurants and cafès of the whole Town. Assolo apart is a quality featured and fully equipped 1 double bedroom & 2 complete bathrooms apart, perfect for a couple that wanna stay absolutely comfortable.

Due to its 2 complete bathrooms and its double sofa-bed in the living Assolo is also perfect for 2 friends, 2 couples or a mixed group of friends (up to 4 sleeps) looking for a smart and convenient accomodation without renouncing to comfort and intimacy.

The fully furnished separated kitchen then allow guests to easily prepare self catering that can be comfortably enjoyed on the large (6 seats) wooden table in the large living's dining area, looking on a quiet green through its windows.

Finally Assolo apart let its guests to enjoy their whole stay allowing both a really comfortable and rational sight-seeing and a pleasant and comfortable stay in one of the most fascinating Venice areas.

Superior accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Due to this accomodation our stay in Venice was excellent. Even if 4 adults the accomodation was absolutely comfortable (and convenient). Two bathrooms was the key to comfort, within apart’s quietness and bright large living area, allowing us comfortably dining and resting all together. Good quality features, really fully equipped kitchen our wives really enjoyed to prepare meals with local products (full of small food markets in the nearby, as well as restaurants and intresting shops). The location was exactly as described: extremely comfortable for visiting but incredibly out of heavily touristic paths. We really enjoyed our stay. Absolutey deserved five stars superior to this accomodation.

Good apart nice location

  • 5 of 5

Good apart 100% correspondent. Easy and quick deal with the Owner, on-time and friendly check-in, good communications. The apart is cosy and warm, clean, absolutey quiet. Its living’s windows face a nice and quiet garden: pleasant to let them open when dining and resting. The kitchen is large and fully equipped, two bathrooms are a comfort and the master bedroom has a comfortable mattress. Good speed and alweays working Wi-Fi. The location is extremely convenient as it is few minutes away from Saint-Mark’s square and all the main sites but we saw really few tourists walking and exploring the area (and it was Easter period!). In the surroundings we found really good restaurants (Trattoria da Remigio was our favourite) and intresting shops, small hidden squares with sunny open-air cafès, nice canals where we saw lot of gondolas (they navigate just few areas of Venice).

Due to this accomodation we really had a great time in Venice.

Warmly recommended.

Above expectations

  • 5 of 5

Looking for a fully central but anyway quiet accomodation we fell on this advert and due to its position features and location we decided for it. The advert is fully correspondent to what we found, even above our expectations. The apart is an easy first floor, wide, bright, finely furnished and absolutely quiet. The kitchen is large and well equipped (also dish washer!), we used it a lot. The doble bed is comfortable even if a bit too soft for our taste (but we are used to sleep on a “wooden table” as my wife call it). The sofa-bed (used by our adult son) was comfortable too and easy to open/close. Two bathroom was a real plus. Much space in the living. Wi-fi worked well, as well as heating and all apart’s devices, no drawbacks. So the accomodation was perfect but what really impressed us was the location. The Owner, as well as the advert and Reviews, prevented us but what we found is quiet incredible: the apart is just 5 minutes walking from Saint-Mark’s square and close to every main Venice’s attraction. What was a bit far we could both walk a bit more or easily reach it with “vaporeto”, really close to the apart (2 min walking I guess). Despite this the area is absolutely not heavily touristic, quiet, paceful. We explored the surroundings and we found lot of small roads, canals and bridges, with hidden family-run shops, artisan shops and not at all touristic restaurants (the Owner helped us to choose). It was like the old Venice we always saw in movies and imagined then. By chance we also found one of the last real Venetian artistic masks Artisans (Papier Maché), less than 5 min walking from the apart, where we bought two exstraordinary original hand made masks now decorating our living room at home. We are really proud of them.

Due to this accomodation we had a great time in Venice, feeling somewhat explorers, not just tourists.

Surely recommended to everybody.

Ideal location, perfect accomodation

  • 5 of 5

By a further request to another property, the Owner kindly porposed us this lovely accomodation. He explained us it was not advertised yet (in fact it is absolutely minty) but it would have been soon. He supplied us a full brochure of the apart with pics, decription, features, equipement and also map positioning. Due to its decenary trusted membership we decided to trust him. We did the right choice. What we found was exactly what the Owner and the informative material promised us. The location is what we were looking for: close to everything (just 5 min walking to reach Saint-Mark square) but in a still genuine venetian area, not affected by massive tourism yet, with lot of family run restaurants and shops in the nearby. We asked the Owner and he suggested us the best restaurants of the area (we warmly suggest Tratoria da Remigio and, for special occasions Ostaria da Franz, just local fresh fish). In our 4 nights stay we easily visited the whole Town and also had great dinners. The apart itself is really quality comfortable and quiet. It has an easy access, an agreable and quality featured living, perfectly equipped kitchen (I also cooked local “capesante” in the electric oven, magnific) and comfortable mid-hard large bed. The 2 bathrooms was a plus, even if we were just a couple. Finally due to our accomodation’s choice this was one of our best trips. A big thank to the Owner also with this Review. This is the accomodation we would suggest to a friend. Higly reccomended.

Due giorni a Venezia

  • 4 of 5

Appartamento bello, pulito, confortevole e soprattutto in posizione fantastica per visitare Venezia. Corrisponde perfettamente alle immagini.

Segnalo di sostituire il materasso nella stanza doppia e il divano letto non è adatto per 2 adulti, ma, per noi con 2 bambine, è andato tutto ok.
