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 Piazza San Marco.

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. There are two supermarkets just two minutes from the apartment (in Venice are rare).

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.

Very spacious for Venice and exactly as pictures, Greeted by Lucca who was gracious and welcoming answering all our questions. So very glad we stayed here, we feel like we had the real.Venice experience ane even with horrible weather, to look out windows and see picture postcard views is out of this world,

Great Apartment and Location

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we have stayed at Carmen's apartment on our many trips to Venice & I have to say that we will definitely be booking this apartment again. Excellent communication with Carmen & Laura prior to our stay & great welcome & assistance from Luca on arrival. The apartment is as described & the photos do not do the apartment justice. The location on Calle del Paradiso is perfect for a 5 minute walk to St Marks or 5 minutes in the opposite direction to Rialto. Ponte del Paradiso is convenient for water taxi drop off or pickup. The rooms are quiet, airy with views onto the canals below and small touches in the apartment such as the light under the stair make a difference to feeling comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble for Luca who provided assistance when needed. Would highly recommend.

Stay here...you won’t regret it!

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best place we’ve stayed in in Italy over 5 weeks. Great location, walk everywhere. Beautifully furnished, feels like a home. We loved coming back here each day between adventures, it was cold outside but always warm inside! We cooked every night after staying in hotels for a month, used the COOP around the corner for supplies. I highly recommend this apartment, we are a family of 2 adults and 3 teens and we had enough space to spread out. As for the view, wow. We spent every day watching the passing parade of gondolas, people walking their dogs and tourists. Having said that the apartment was very quiet at night! Perfect.

Great location and apartment

  • 5 of 5

The views of the canal from the master bedroom, living room, and kitchen were picturesque. The apartment was clean and in a great location. We would stay here again and recommend it to friends.

Location

Nearest Motorway
20 Kilometres
A4 (west) and A11 (East) motorway at 20 Kilometres
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,
