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.

Not as good as our places in Florence and Rome

  • 3 of 5

The view is great and the location is very convenient. The bathrooms were good and functional. My problem is that the hosting wasn't as strong as it was in my other places, I didn't feel as welcome and did not answer simple questions like " how do I order a water taxi? The answer was " I have no idea, check the internet." And the beds were very uncomfortable. We all ended up with stiff necks. And this is the property We spent the most money for,. I won't stay there again.

A lovely place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We are four ladies who shared this appartment and we all agreed we would have no problem returning. Every thing was of good standard. Comfy beds with beautiful bedding. Well equipped kitchen and well furnished bathrooms. They veiws from each window were a bonus. The main attractions were all just a short walk away. I would recommend this appartment to friends and family.

Amazing Appartment in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful appartment close to everything you want to see in Venice but quiet at night! Great communication from Carmen and Laura throughout and Luca was great meeting us at the vapareto stop and escorting us to the apartment and explaining how everything worked!

Wonderful Experience and Location in Venice

  • 5 of 5

Five family members stayed in this apartment in early April. The location was outstanding: near enough the major destination points to be convenient, but enough removed to be quiet. The apartment was very comfortable for us, and the rooftop terrace was a nice feature. A well-equipped market is nearby if you want provisions for eating in. We would heartily recommend this choice if you need three bedrooms in Venice.

Property with character in the heart of Venice

  • 5 of 5

Sensitively renovated apartment with all that you need and nothing you don't. Fantastic views down the canals which allowed opportunity for watching daily life in Venice as well as gondolas passing by. A beautiful street only five minutes walk from Rialto and ten minutes from St. Mark's (if you don't get lost!) The roof terrace is an asset catching the sun in the middle of the day and a place to eat Al Fresco in the evening and chill out from sightseeing. Having visited Venice before and having done all the must see sites this provided a lovely location to just soak in the character of the city. The eccentric Libreria Acqua Alta bookshop is close by for some interesting book browsing. Would thoroughly recommend this apartment.

Activity and Interests

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,
