Apartment at Via Montello/ Viale Cairoli, Treviso , only 29km, or 40 mins by train, from Venice. - Located Close To All Amenities, Has Convenient Access To Old Town But Enjoys Considerable Privacy
Elegant 5th floor, 2 bedroom penthouse, served by lift, with extensive balconies overlooking the old town walls, the old town roofscape and the unbroken and serrated line of Dolomite peaks to the north. A mere 29 km from Venice, and extremely well served by bus and train services, the apartment makes for a great inexpensive base from which to explore Venice and the Lagoon and a tranquil sanctuary to return to after all the crowds.Centrally heated in winter and air conditioned in summer, the apartment is comfortable, and though central, is actually very private and feels like being tucked away in the roof and treetops! There is off street parking downstairs, with apartment block keys opening the barrier. The apartment, being adjacent to the town walls, is very convenient to all the attractions of Treviso, and is well served by a punctual bus service, the number 61, which stops outside the apartment and accesses the railway station and town centre in 10 minutes. Access to the town centre is best done on foot however, with all sorts of shopping and eating out possible within ten minutes walk.

We had a fantastic 6 days in this lovely, well appointed apartment in Treviso. Situated just outside the city walls everything was within walking distance but there were also bus stops a very short walk away. The lift to the top floor apartment meant that luggage was easy to get in and out. There was plenty hot water, air conditioner cooled the whole apartment and the views from the balcony were splendid. This apartment is well positioned to visit Venice, Verona and the mountains. Definitely recommended.
A very comfy apartment, with fabulous views from every room, and a great location in Treviso
This is a great base for exploring the region, we didn't bother with a car - doing it all by train, making the most of the fantastically cheap fares, and ultra reliable services - heading off into the hills, south to Venice, and west to Verona and Vincenza. Returning to Treviso each evening to eat in one of its many restaurants, Da Fausta served fantastic Pizza, at such good value that we went four times, as well as sampling the many wonderful gelatos, or sipping Aperol Spritz in the main square watching the world go by. Treviso itself is a gem of a place - much underrated, with many streams (and working water wheels!) dotted throughout. The apartment is in a great location just outside the city walls, in a very quiet spot with fabulous views towards the Dolomites. It has a fantastic wrap around balcony, north facing and some of it east facing, which means the apartment stays relatively cool in summer, we were very glad of the shade. The beds are very comfy and lots of towels and sheets available and Brian the owner gave us lots of helpful information in advance.
I visited Treviso and stayed in this wonderful apartment, and I could not have asked for a better place to stay. The town is charming and very close to Venice. The owner, Brian, was very congenial and even mailed me my lost Kindle. I give it the highest recommendation.
A lovely apartment with everything you need. Just outside the walled town on Treviso. Excellent location with bars, restaurants and shops. Ideal for visiting the area.
We'll be back!
The Perfect Place
We could'nt have stayed in a better place. The apartment was absolutely fabulous. Everything and much more than we could have wished for. The location was perfect . We actually flew to Treviso and was at the apartment 10 mins after arriving in the beautiful city. The owner Brian gave us all the information we needed was very prompt with his reply's from day one of booking with him. Kept in touch with us whilst there to suggest places to try which i thought was fantastic he was so friendly, and we welcomed all his suggestions.The best customer service we have received by far. The city itself is absolutely the best place we have been. Having stayed at Venice last year for a week we do now prefer Treviso. Have recommended it to all we know. Cannot wait to visit again. We walked around the whole city. Delightful. We ate at Osteria Del Torre and Tony Del Spin both fabulous. Had coffee at tons of places too many to mention all fab.The market is absolutely unbelievable hundreds of stalls. All in all best holiday ever. Only regret did'nt stay long enough. Well done Brian you are exceptional and hope to return soon.
Charming apartment in a delightful city
The apartment was very easy to find thanks to the detailed instructions from the owner. We arrived at Venice Airport where there was the number 3 bus waiting to take us to Treviso. The journey took only an hour. We then got the number 61 bus which stopped right outside the apartment and took under 10 mins. The apartment is charming and very much a family home with photographs and paintings done by the talented owner. The views from the balconies are stunning. Looking out over the rooftops and over to the Dolomites which is particularly special at sunset with your glass of Prosecco in hand! We dealt with the owner, Brian by email and phone and it was so straightforward. He was very happy to answer any of our queries and went the extra mile suggesting places to visit. The apartment is in a residential area just outside the walls and in the neighbourhood there are fruit and veg shops and a Spar not far away. It takes around 5 mins to walk across the road to the lovely old town of Treviso. So much to see and especially how the river is managed and flows through the city. Not to mention the wonderful market which takes place on Tuesday and Saturday. Walking in Treviso is a delight, always finding something new. Local transport is very cheap and we took train trips to Padua, Vicenza and Venice. You will not find many foreign tourists in Treviso mostly Italians who come to visit at the weekend. We would highly recommend this apartment for its charm and great locality and look forward to visiting again.
Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:European club rugby matches are regularly played at Treviso and the Treviso side has been instrumental in fostering and growing the sport in Italy, with the recent Italian successes in the six nations cup being a direct result of this, though recent results have been less than encouraging for the home side...
Lido de Jesolo is about an hours drive away, and is the closest and most famous beach in the area.
Treviso Canova airport is 10 minutes drive away,
Venice Marco Polo is about 45 minutes drive away.
Car hire for travel around and in Treviso is not by any means essential, indeed we have used the excellent, reliable and inexpensive buses and trains on many occasions and most of the surrounding towns are easily accessible by both. However, for flexibility, cars are unbeatable, especially for the elderly or infirm though Italian driving habits should be researched before driving!
Cortina D'Ampezzo, ski resort km
Castelfranco Del Veneto, medieval town 32km
Ther is a very handy Despar grocery 5 minutes away up Via Montello, also there is an outstanding and award winning butcher shop, or Macellaria, selling local delicacies.beside this there is a greengrocers, and a very good wholesale wine seller, run by the affable Dario,who sells very drinkable prosecco for under €2 a bottle!!
For more thorough groceries etc there is a large Spar supermarket inside the walls, a 5 minutes walk away, and an Ins discount store directy opposite.
The nearest ATM is just inside the walls opposite the apartment.
There is a very large market also just inside the walls across from the property every tuesday and saturday morning where you can find almost anything.
There is a wealth of good shopping in Treviso, for items such as house ware, clothes, shoes, high end design goods but such quality does not come cheap, be prepared!
The region has its own specific cuisine, and proudly uses produce according to the season so you will delight in treats here that you will find nowhere else in Italy, let alone elsewhere.There is an abundance of very good restaurants, Arman and Odeon to name but two,
You will be struck at how few tourists there are out and about, you will see the Italians in normal mode, as opposed to the caricatures you will be burdened with in Venice!
Treviso is a working Italian town, pretty but not twee, busy but not frantic.
There is a very good swimming pool complex at Santa Bona, served by bus 55 from viale Cairoli, great for families, and we have spent many happy days there.
For those interested in Art and culture, Treviso abounds in treasures. From the austere and imposing C.XIV Cattedrale San Niccolo, with its exquisite frescoes by Tomasso Di Modena and its 3 story high John the Baptist ( surely a record!),to the tiny but breath taking Chiesa di Santa Lucia, with its beautiful, intricate and subtly llit frescoes, in Piazza San Vito, to the many frescoed houses dotting the town, to the Civic Museum, the many lesser little churches, the Benneton Foundation,and the Exhibition Centre, there is much to see and enjoy.
In summer, there are wonderful outdoor concerts of classical, jazz and rock music to be enjoyed, some located in the piazze and others located on the town walls themselves.
The Facebook page, Around And About Treviso,
is also a very useful reference point for attractions in both Treviso itself and the surrounding hinterland, often yielding hidden gems not found elsewhere.

- Notes on accommodation: There is ample and secure off street parking, reached through a remote controlled barrier. Outside: There is a very long and extensive balcony, which hugs 2 sides of the apartment and affords stunning views all year round with the Dolomites sparkling to the north and the medieval town roofscape with its myriad campaniles and spires delighting both the eyes and the ears, to the east. To sit outside , enjoying your breakfast in the sunshine, taking in the snowcapped and unbroken line of alpine peaks to the north, as the many and varied church bells ring out the hour, is a pleasure not to be forgotten. Savour too, the sheer sense of well being, as you sip prosecco at dusk on the balcony, the swifts wheeling and screeching in the sky overhead,as the day fades. Please be aware of the care needed when using the balcony, and especially when it involves children. I never let my kids use it unattended, as they may drop something over or try to climb the railings.We can accept no responsibility for any mishaps arising from the use or misuse of the balcony.
