The palazzetto has a private garden and is located in a charming campiello with a fountain (email hidden)ly neighborhood cafe. It is a lovely 10 minute walk from the Accademia Bridge. The San Basilio and Ca'Rezzonico vaporetto stops are 10 minutes away. The house is near the Church of San Nicolo' dei Mendicoli, one of the oldest in Venice, and near the venerable school of Architecture at Universita' Ca' Foscari. This is a vibrant Venetian neighborhood where savvy travelers can immerse themselves in true Venetian life.
The palazzetto is completely restored with careful attention to traditional Venetian materials and architectural details. The third floor entrance features traditional Venetian tiles in Sienna red and cream with beautiful wood floors throughout the apartment. The beamed ceilings in this house make staying here an authentic Venetian experience. Selected pieces of my painting and photography collection are on display. An antique Venetian mirror hangs in the salotto.
Up 10 steps from the second floor, with its own private entrance, the third floor sleeps 2-4 people. It occupies the entire floor of the building providing a light and airy atmosphere with good cross ventilation. The master bedroom has a double bed OR two singles and features beautiful etched windows. It overlooks the private garden and is very quiet. The European style lavender mosaic bathroom has elegant appointments.
The marble kitchen is in one corner of the salotto. This room, with two day beds and a crystal dining table for 6, is spacious and has its own elegant gray bath across the private hall. Out the double windows, you have a view of the Riello and the local life that passes through it. A stay in this truly beautiful space enfolds you in the luxury of Venice.
The house manager will greet you and acquaint you with the neighborhood and residents so you feel at home right away.
Weekly maid service included.
Please see the second floor apartment (sleeps 4-5) of this building. Under airbnb listing: "Life in Venice w/ Private Garden." The apartments are separate but can be rented together to accommodate a group of 9 or more.
Had a great time, wonderful location Ina quiet part of Venice. The bookshelves alone made the apt charming. I would recommend this to anyone comfortable with a little walking and able to navigate via map or iPhone. Not difficult, but something to consider. The caretaker Natasha was wonderful, very nice and welcoming.
It was a very nice experience staying at Barbara's flat with details in good taste. Barbara is a great host, gave me a lot of introductions and helpful tips. I loved the apartment and it's location, close the train station. Venice is amazing!
After one night in the other apartment we spent another one in this one. I kind of preferred it as it had a lot of charm under the roof and the living room-kitchen area was larger, but there was one room less, which was really fine for our family of 4. The shower system is a little bit strange as you shower in the whole bathroom and need to dry the floor afterwards. Otherwise the neighborhood is nice and quiet and we slept very well. It was also very well equipped with all the towels, spices,...

Charming, clean and cosy apartment. Great non-touristy yet convenient location in Venice. We had a friendly and helpful greeting and a lovely stay. I'd definitely recommend staying here. Thank you Barbara
What an experience! Barbara is the reason why airbnb works. Not only is her apt a great place to stay in Venice (I can't imagine staying at a hotel there ever again), but the information and help she provides acts as a great introduction to the city so that you can enjoy it to the fullest. Her property manager , Natasha, was absolutely the sweetest person who helped us immensely. Stay here, get lost, fall in love.
The house is vey well located, very close to campo santa margherita that it's the perfect spot for aperitif or cocktails after dinner.
Barbara provide a lot of useful information on the city, although the indications she give to reach the house were kind of confusing, luckily it shouldn't be difficult if you are using a GPS smartphone...
