The Space

Near Piazza San Marco - The apartment (100 sq mt) is part of the fourteenth-century Palazzo Malipiero overlooking Grand Canal next to Palazzo Grass, located in the delightful San Samuele district - a calm and cultured neighbourhood with a gentle, upmarket buzz where galleries sit close to antique shops, well clear of the hustle and bustle yet a mere stone's throw to the Palazzo Grassi Museum of Modern Art and the Campo Santo Stefano with its inviting outdoor cafes and local colour. The apartment is located on the fifth floor and served by elevator, it conists in a small entrance hall, large living / dining room overlooking Grand Canal, a large bedroom with brand new floorings with small terrace overlooking Grand Canal and a large bathroom with bathtub, study / second bedroom with small terrace, equipped kitchen (coffee machine, microwave, dishwasher) and small bathroom with shower stall. Very bright and quiet, equipped with washing machine, heating and air conditioning. Pubblic transports just next to the house (San Samuele vaporetto stop)

Close to a grocery/delicatessen and wine shop and opposite the gallery of world famous Venetian wood sculptor Livio De Marchi, well known for ‘driving’ through the canals of Venice in his carved wooden ‘cars’ and, for scent-lovers, steps from Venice outlet of the famous Florentine ‘Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella’ – one of the oldest pharmacies in the world and one time fragrance maker to Catherine de’ Medici.
Beautiful multiplex cinema at 5 minutes walk (Multisala Rossini) with 3 movie theaters.

  • A wonderful two weeks in Venice !

    Perfect location : peaceful, close to and easy access to everything, but not too close to the tourist routes and hubbub, gorgeous views, relaxed location. Close to Alimentari, trattoria's and Vaporetto. San Samuele is indeed a delightful area.

    Perfect accommodation : Bright, airy and spacious attic apartment with an eclectic mix of antique and modern furniture and décor, set in the mystique of an ancient Palazzo. As well are modern amenities with lovely personal touches from my hosts.

    Perfect hosts : quick responses to queries, not at all intrusive and very very helpful. Thankyou Martina and Francesca !

    This listing is definitely not for those that demand bland hostelry and room service. This is a home ...not a hotel.

    This apartment and its surrounds is definitely for those that want to touch and taste Venice ....and maybe even feel Venetian for two weeks .. like I did !

  • We really enjoyed our stay in Martina's flat:
    - there was a lot of room,
    - very private, and felt a break from the crowds,
    - we could walk everywhere easily, or very easily catch a vaporetto outside our front door,
    - and the flat was very well appointed.

    We especially liked that there were some basic provisions there before we arrived -- milk, butter, coffee, tea. So helpful!

    The area is great too... a quick walk found great food (the restaurant and bacaro at Trattoria del Fiore was great, both for lunch and a late night stop), as were the local alimentary.

    All in all, a great stay. Thank you!

  • We had a perfect stay in Venice. The attic is wonderfully located, the water taxi from the airport delivers you right at the front door. Inside it's spacious, very bright and with superb views. Sabrina and her mom were very helpful. We already miss the place, and Venice of course.

  • Parfait emplacement, très jolie décoration, avec une vue sur le grand canal.

    L'emplacement au pied de la station San Samuel est formidable (accessoirement face à la fondation Pinault). Il est très simple de rejoindre tous les quartiers sans touristes, pour découvrir une autre Venise, ou parcourir les nombreux sites historiques.

    L'appartement est calme, seuls viennent vous enchanter les cloches des églises, les moteurs lointains des Vapporetto.

    Bonnes literies, bons rangements, des sanitaires très propres (un peu dans leur jus...) et une disposition des pièces qui rend l'espace aéré.

    Et une mention spéciale pour l’accueil, très aimable, très serviable,

    Un grand merci !

  • Our stay in Martina's appartment was great! Very nice apartment, comfortable and clean. Truly excellent location, in a nice neighbourhood, close to all the interesting places to visit and directly at a Vaporetto stop. Contact with Martina over e-mail was always fast and effective. During our stay Martina's mother Francesca, who lives in the same building, was very helpful. No negative comments or improvement points, would warmly recommend it to anyone staying in Venice!

  • Great location, great space, Martina is very friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful weekend.

    October 2013
  • We had easy contact with Martina both here on airbnb and on SMS before our arrival to Venice.
    It was not a problem to find the place or even to check in and leave our baggage 2 hours beforehand.
    We were welcomed by Martinas mother, Francesca who was very nice and helpful. She showed us around the apartment and gave some small tips and suggestions. (in good English!)
    We were surprised with the basic equipped fridge with the complimentary milk, orange juice and butter. There was also well equipped kitchen with espresso machine and freshly grounded coffee.
    Apartment was very clean, nice and cosy. There was also WI-FI!
    Nice location, easy access to vaporetto and good place to start a nice walk around the city.
    Close to apartment there were some nice small grocery stores, bars and restaurants.
    Visit in Venice was Fantastic. We enjoyed apartment a lot. We may get back there in a future! Enjoy yourself!

  • Home away from home, having stayed so manny times in Venice this apartment was a completely new experience. If you ever dreamt of having a place there, this can not be better, the place is so central and yet so quiet and uncrowded but in the center of every communication. This not to speak of the apartment itself, full of light, spacious, nicely furnished, spotless clean, a perfect place for 4 people, in total comfort. The owner lady who lives in the vicinity is charming and extremely helpful. To be honest absolutely the finest stay in Venice out of ten or more in the last two decades ! The city as the country is blessed with the best food on earth, which you find on any ten minutes walk in every direction, as for the scenery, the culture and the Art it is omnipresent. This place is the center away from the omnipresent crowds, you can experience this gem of the world cultural heritage in the most serene and relaxed way.
    I hesitated two post this for I would prefer to keep this magnificent experience for my own comfort, but then the people were so exquisitely nice and genuinely helpful that I cannot but reciprocate by writing this form the heart.
