Overview

About the property

Hearth of Venice, view over canals, terrace, 3 rooms, 2 bathroms

The apartment is located in the heart of Venice, between Rialto bridge and San Marco. There are two supermarkets just two minutes from the apartment (in Venice are rare).

The apartment is on the second floor and consists of a lobby, drawing room with two comfortable sofas and TV( the two windows of this room overlook the canal ), kitchen - dining room with a view over the bridges and the canal also when you sit at the table, one bedroom with a mullioned lancet window on the canal, a second bedroom with two single bed overlooking the Paradise arch, two bathrooms with shower and mansard room with terrace on the third floor (duplex flat).

The area is quiet and there are plenty of shops nearby in the 'calle' (street): supermarket, baker, pharmacy, antique bookshop, news-stand, restaurants, confectionery, the best ice- cream shop etc.

F.A.Q. : terrace, 2nd floor, luminous, air conditioning, internet access free, washing machine, dishwasher, microwaves, Satellite TV, a full kitchen and equipped, all linen for the kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms, complete supply of table linen, bed linen and towels.

'This romantic corner of Venice with the Arch of Paradise was the source of inspiration for many poets, writers and photographers as Carl Spitzweg in 1832, John Ruskin, Frank Brangwyin in 1910, James Fergusson, the Alinari brothers (important Italian photographers ), The children-book writer Pinin Carpi wrote a book entitled 'Il ponte del Paradiso' ,

Why should you choose this apartment?: I am aware that it is not easy to rent a house in Venice where the market offers a great choice of apartments for rental.

I can say that my decision to buy this apartment in spite of its higher price in respect to other flats of the same size was due to the fact that I found it had some very special and unique features:

1) the fantastic view from all the windows over the canal . You see a canal crossing where the gondolas seem to slip under the building and you feel like living on a bridge in a romantic atmosphere.

2.)f the central location a a at five minute-walk from Sa Marco square and Rialto bridge

3) the terrace

4) the apartment is on the second floor and has a magnificent view.

5) the charming history of the calle and the Paradiso arch.

6) the 'calle del Paradiso' is very quiet and it is close to ' salizzada San Lio 'where you find all kind of shops

I would also like to say that the renovation was completed in 2015 and that the apartment was completely equipped with new furniture.

A deposit is not requested: we don't ask you to pay for a deposit at your arrival since we have never had any problems with our guests.

I am an architect and I put a great deal of passion in carrying out the restoration works. I saved all the original characteristics and I tried to recuperate as much as possible from the old decoration. For example the 'seminato ' floor - a kind of Venetian mosaic - was recreated according to the original pattern (but now it is perfectly even, a very rare thing in Venice!), the ceiling rafts are the old ones and have been perfectly restored, the bedrooms parquet floors are made of elm- wood.,

It was a great pleasure for me to restore this apartment and I would like to rent it out to people who will appreciate it and think of it as their home in Venice.

A fine apartment in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well equipped and perfect for either a family or a couple who simply want space. It has a wonderful view of a canal that constantly entertains as you watch. It is an easy walk to San Marco and there are a number of nearby supermarkets. A great find.

Holidaying in a film set!

  • 5 of 5

4 of us ladies had a wonderful stay in beautiful Venice. The apartment was perfect for us, so charming and situated right in the centre of so much to see and do. We barely scratched the surface of activities in 4 days, even though the weather was so hot; having a lovely cool base to return too kept us fresh (thank you air conditioning!)

It was a little gruelling dragging our cases to the apartment when we arrived, but it was over 30 degrees and it was so worth it when we got there. If you can stretch to it the water taxis might save you the effort, but the public transport (water 'buses') are excellent and frequent too.

We weren't going to do the clichéd touristy thing, but went with it and so enjoyed a gondola trip around the quieter canals, and even recommend a pricey round of nighttime cocktails in St Marco's listening to a jazz quartet...magical!

We thoroughly recommend this pretty apartment, and would certainly return again to continue exploring Venice.

3 BR 2 bath Exceptional apartment with canal views and central location

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 4 with 2 adults, and 2 teenage children) stayed here for 3 nights and fell in love with the apartment. Location is great - halfway between Rialto Bridge and San Marco and a less than 10 minute walk to either location. The apartment itself is on the third floor and has 4 large windows (one in the master bedroom, 2 in the living room and one in the dining room) directly overlooking Ponte Paradiso and smaller canals which had mostly gondolas rather than the occasional motorboats. The windows can open sideways or vertically so you can lean out and get a really good view. We loved the views and it was so nice to sit down in the kitchen and eat a meal while overlooking the canals. Having 3 bedrooms was a luxury as our son took the second bedroom and our daughter took the upper floor loft area which she claimed as her own. Lots of places to eat within a few minutes walk (everyone's favorite was Osteria alle Testiere which is 2 streets over - make reservations, and Del Maro's Pasta to Go is a good choice for a quick bite), and a supermarket around the corner for the basics. The kitchen was well furnished with a microwave, lots of plates and glasses, and the dining table again had a great view. There is a washer in the larger bathroom which we used daily so we didn't need a lot of luggage. Highly recommend.

Apartment is in a great location within walking distance to Rialto Bridge and San Marco Square.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the fact that it was very close to a grocery store and many shops and restaurants. We were able to prepare some meals in the apartment. Very spacious.

Location

Car: not necessary

The flat is strategically located near the museums and the theaters, at less than a 5 minute-walk from both San Marco square and Rialto bridge, close to Campo Santa Maria Formosa.

The area is one of the oldest in Venice and is full of history.

'This romantic corner of Venice with the Arch of Paradise inspired many artists, writers and photographers..

The view over the canal crossing is breathtaking from all the five windows of the apartment in all seasons and also in rainy weather,

For centuries gondolas and boats carrying all kind of goods have been passing quietly on the canals steered by the skilful boatsmen of Venice. It is the same life of old Venice going on.

The watertaxi from the airport can stop close to the apartment door, while line 1 or 2 of water bus from Roma square or Railway station stops at Rialto bridge from where you can easily wallk to the flat.

The 'calle del Paradiso' is very quiet and is close to 'salizzada San Lio' where all kind of shops and two supermarkets can be found,
