Elegance and essentiality are the main characteristics of the apartment that will enable you to spend a wonderful relaxing vacation in Venice.
Located in the sestiere of "Castello", in a characteristic building of the early XVIII century, the apartment is on the mezzanine and is located in a privileged position: in the heart of Venice with its small stores where the direct contact with the customer is considered of paramount importance. The breathtaking vista from the apartment is the characteristic venetian channel with its small typical Venetian boats: the gondolas. The apartment consists of a roomy living room with kitchen and davenport, a double bedroom, a room for closets and a restroom. Elegance and essentiality are the main characteristics of the apartment that will enable you to spend a wonderful relaxing vacation in Venice. The apartment is equipped with TV; radio, DVD player, Mp3, iPod, iPhone, washing machine and dryer, combined oven, air conditioning, heating system, toaster, espresso coffee machine, electric squeezer, hairdryer and any other accessory you may need.
The apartment is located in the heart of Castello, the Venetian Sestriere that is considered the most colorful. This area, full of taste of the past, with stores and bars where Venetians hang around and the liveliness of campo Bandiera and Moro, will lead you into the real Venetian life. From here you can visit the Bienalle Gardens, the Arsenale, San Giorgio degli Schiavoni and the Chiesa della Pietà , the chiesa di San Zaccaria and San Francesco della Vigna. In 10 minutes you can walk to the Bridge of Whispers, St. Mark's Square with its majestic Basilica and the historical Doge's Palace. In 20 minutes you can reach the Rialto Bridge and its famous fish market, the Grand Canal and the Chiesa dei Frari. After passing the whole day in the calles, around museums and stores, we suggest you to go back to the apartment through Riva degli Schiavoni, in order to admire the Venetian Laguna during sunset. Close by you find the direct ferry connection to: St. Mark's Square, Marco Polo Airport, piazzale Roma, Santa Lucia train station. The closest ferry stop is: Arsenale.
Curiosity: around 1930 and for more or less 50 years, the building host an ancient "osteria" "alla rivetta" where "ombre" (wine glasses) and "cicchetti" (various appetizers) were served. In more recent years there was a small restaurant where mostly venetians went.

We had the most wonderful time staying at this beautiful and cosy Venetian apartment. Being right on a canal in a quieter, less touristy part of the island really added to our experience and the short walk to Arsenale ferry stop/the action was perfect. We stumbled upon some fantastic little restaurants in the neighbourhood and enjoyed returning 'home' during the day to recharge. We hope to visit again. Grazie mille!
My stay in this apartment was very nice. It's in a central location to Venice. The apartment was very clean and spacious. My welcome was nice and easy. I appreciated the free wifi. I would stay here again.
Tastefully furnished apartment with modern equipment in a quiet area with a great view onto a canal. Many interesting sites in walking distance. A really nice and convenient spot! Communication with Faville was quick and easy, we were able to book with only one day notice! Also, special thanks for the opportunity of a late check-out. Overall, a great experience, only a few downsides: the cleaning fee of € 115 was a bit hefty for a two-day visit, in particular when finding a slice of pizza from previous guests still in the oven! Some mould in the bathroom and a lamp in the living room not working. Without these flaws the place would be perfect, even with them still worth a recommendation!
La réponse rapide de Faville après une annulation de dernière minute a été un soulagement .l'appartement était parfaitement adapté pour notre séjour
This is a really great nice little apartment for those who want to stay away from the big tourist places like San Marco and Campanile. However, if you want to go there, its only a 10 minutes walk. Everything works great and flawless. We met at the meeting point and within 10 minutes we arrived at the apartment. Gloria gave some great tips for restaurants and other spots around venice which were very helpful. The apartment is very modern and quite and has everything you need for a great stay. Highly recommend!
The Arcimboldo is a spacious appartement that is conveniently located in the heart of Venice (in walking distance of San Marco, but away from the hustle and bustle). It is quiet, clean and equipped with everything you need to cook your own meals. It has a very bright bathroom and a very good bed. Of course you will find some traces of moisture at the base of some of the walls because of the proximity of the canal (Hey, this is Venice. What did you expect ;-) ? ), but it is in no way a problem (no bad smell at all). Everything was in working order during our stay. In conclusion, this appartment is a very good deal and you should not be disappointed.
This apartment was incredible - it is even better than it looks on the listing. Beautifully decorated and brilliantly located right on a charming canal - for a couple of days we truly felt like locals!
There was a small hiccup with our arrival (we were directed to the wrong boat stop) but this was quickly and easily resolved and we soon met our contact who walked us to the apartment and showed us around.
The apartment is very well equipped - so much so that I was able to whip up a beautiful pasta dish for lunch, inspired by the fresh produce at the rialto markets.
We absolutely loved our stay and will be back for sure, but next time we will leave the kids at home so we can enjoy the peace and tranquility of this gorgeous spot!
