Our home in Venice gave us a lot of pleasure from the day we bought it. We enjoyed it very much to modify and restructure the curious high entrance room and the low corridor, to hide the garret and to place the beautiful waterwindow right at the canal. We made the furniture by ourselves of solid wood and painted the bathroom in beautiful matching colors. Now that the house is ready we enjoy passing some time there every now and then, to feel at home in the friendly neighborhood, visit the Biennale and walk around in the city. To stay in a comfortable and beautiful house hidden in a narrow lane behind a lively square is a real pleasure, and we hope you may enjoy it the way we do.

The Apartment is located on the ground floor of a 15th century building with an independent entrance in "Calle del Prè Maurizio" street. The neighborhood is mostly populated by venetians and it has kept its own authenticity within the small shops, taverns and bars, usually attended by residents of the area.

Very nice apartment, exactly as described and as you can see on the pictures. Warm welcome on arrival + very nicely located, only 10 minutes walk to Piazza San Marco.
If you visit Venice during the colder season, take some house shoes with you, since the floor is pretty cold.
Avons passé un agréable séjour !!!
Gite bien situé !!!
De belles découvertes dans cette superbe ville !!!
Certes le froid nous a quelque peu transi
Mais le soir en rentrant dans notre gite, nous n'avons pas réussi à nous réchauffer avec le chauffage radiant Dommage !!!
Le ballon d'eau chaude étant également un peu petit pour permettre à 4 personnes de profiter d'une douche bien chaude
Sinon, super accueil de la part de Brigitte qui nous a permis de déposer nos bagages dès notre arrivée et de ne pas précipiter notre départ
We saw in the new year in this lovely apartment. As others have said it is ideally located in a quiet neighbourhood a short walk from San Marco. The neighbours were certainly noisy but it was not a big deal for us. We appreciated the kitchen, washer and dryer (the first we have seen in three weeks in Italy) and Brigette was very helpful, coming to meet us on New Year's Eve and giving us useful landmarks with which to navigate back to the apartment.
First of all the location was great, and the apartment exactly as described. However, please note that there is a significant charge for using both beds.
It is £28 per person per night for 'extra people'. There was a misunderstanding on my part regarding the charge for the apartment and I therefore paid the balance. However, as I later looked at air B'n'B for other comparable places in Venice it's clear that there are better deals to be had.
It is also worth noting that the flat does not have wifi (which made trying to sort out the misunderstanding even more tricky) nor does it have an oven.
This is a great place to stay for a couple, but very pricey for two couples.
The stress of trying to clear all this up (not to mention having to pay half again for what amounted to a couple of towels and a set of sheets) very nearly ruined the holiday. Luckily Venice is incredibly enchanting.
We had a pleasant stay. The appartment is situated between the Biennale and San Marco Plaza, both at walking distance. Brigitte was very friendly en told us the ins and outs that made our stay convenient. Good to know the high tide did not affect the appartment!
Brigitte hat uns an der Vaporetto-Haltestelle in Empfang genommen, die Wohnung gezeigt und alles notwendige erklärt. Die Wohnung ist schön eingerichtet, aber dunkel (Erdgeschoss Venedig!) So hell wie auf den Fotos ist es definitiv nicht. Es stinkt von den Kanälen. Das Beste an dieser Wohnung ist aber die Bar in der Nähe:-). Ein toller Ort mit einem liebenswürdigen venezianischen Stammpublikum, das einem die Gewissheit gibt, dass Heimat überall dort ist, wo Freunde ist. Einfach wunderbar!
Una sistemazione davvero alternativa...direttamente affacciata su un tipico canale veneziano...do il benvenuto a tutti quelli che vorranno essere miei ospiti...
