Charming Roof Top Apartment, 10 Minutes from St Marks Square

Overview

Property

Updated: 27-Nov-2016
Apartment in Venice, Italy. only 10 minutes walk tp St Marks Square.

Air conditioned apartment situated in the district of Castello in the midst of the Italian community yet close to the major cultural and historical centre. Built around 1450, in the middle of a lively street of shops and restaurants, the apartment oozes charm and character. The roof terrace gives fabulous panaromic views over the whole of Venice even to the snowcapped mountains of the Dolomites. If you are looking to explore the "real" Venice, this is an ideal base to explore the lagoon. Stay amongst the Italian community where you can truly embrace the culture. Be it dining out where the locals dine eat and sampling true venetian delicacies, simply meandering through the typical italian side steets or seeking out one of Venice's bountyful musuems and many works of art. But be warned, once Venice ensnares you, it has you for life!

Lovely time in Venice

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely. The home was ideally located to reach all the amenities locally. Castello is very charming with a nice locals feel to the place with nice restaurants, bars, local shops, daily market and the artists garden, so we never felt like a tourist here yet it only took 10 minutes walk and we found ourselves bang in the centre of St Marks sq. The home features a nice view of the Venitian skyline and the living room has been tastefully appointed. Overall excellent value and we would not hesitate recommending this home to friends and family.

Authentic Arsenale!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a wonderful stay in Venice. We thoroughly

enjoyed our stay here. The home is within easy reach of restaurants, bars and the fish, meat and greengrocer daily market. The home is authentically furnished in venetian style, lots of steps but as the top floor apartment there is was noisy neighbours above you which we have sometimes encountered with other rentals. Arsenale has some superb restaurants, bars and bakery and has a very local feel, not at all touristy but its only a short walk to the ferry and St Marks square to see the sights. We used the verenda once or twice and loved looking at the view of venice and the roof tops so would like to come back in the summer to take full advantage when warmer, especially as the home as air conditioning. Italian apartments were easy to deal with answering emails and our phone calls promptly and efficiently. I would certainly book with them in the future.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here in Arsenale. The home has been tastefully appointed and it was a pleasure to return each evening after pounding the Venetian streets for an aperitif on the roof terrace and take in the views. The home was ideally located close to restaurants,bars and the daily market. The location was just perfect as only a short ferry ride to reach all the attractions and a real bonus to return to the authentic village amongst the locals of an evening. The artists garden close by was convenient to escape the hot venetian summer so thank you Barrie for your recommendations. We would definitely return and will recommend you to friends and family.

Europe's Best City Apartments

Casa Castello, Venice

The X-factor with this apartment is its small roof terrace, which has fantastic views across the rooftops to St mark's Square, only ten minutes' walk away. The whole apartment, which is part of a building dating back to 1450, has a wonderfully historical feel with a beamed living/dining room and a galleried staircase to the upstairs twin bedroom. Located in the unspoilt district of Castello, the apartment has an excellent choice of shops and restaurants near by.

Facilities

From the Owner

Set in the heart of Arsenale. The Venetian Arsenal (in Italian, Arsenale di Venezia) was the heart of the Venetian naval industry from the thirteenth century. It is related to the most flourishing period of the life of the Serenissima: thanks to the massive ships built there. Home too for the famous Bienalle, where thousands of guests travel to see, art, listen to music and enjoy the theatre and cinema.
