Description

The space

Just off San Polo square and 10 mins. from Rialto Bridge, enjoying a private garden with tennis court, the apartment is a weel kept jewel in the heart of Venice.

Here you have your own tennis court! Borrow a racket, or watch others from the jasmine-covered bandstand in the garden. Francesca’s parents live on the ground floor and share both court and garden. There are chairs and a table, roses and hydrangeas.
Close by is the Frari Church (known as Tiziano’s church) and the area is beautifully quiet, with – for Venice – a rare feeling of space.
It’s very central here, yet quiet. The street leads to San Stae vaporetto stop so there’s no through traffic, and the Rialto is only 7 minutes away.

This well-restored apartment is elegant yet cosy and you have a window with bustling San Boldo square and canal views.
This 100 sqm apartment is on second floor of the building (34 steps, no lift) and has two sweet twin/double – the main has a superb view on the canal and the second is cozy and very comfortable with a skylight – and 2 bathrooms, one with combo tub and shower and another with the shower.
The sitting room enjoys a superb view on the garden with the tennis court and the rooftops of the nearby buildings.
The kitchen is beautifully equipped, the dining space is wonderful and airy with garden and Campo San Boldo views.

I'm usually happy and busy, often compelled to move forward, even when I don't have a direction.
I'm thoroughly fascinated with food. Growing, making, sharing, eating, and composting. Also the wider topics: land use, infrastructure, social justice, environmental and human health.
I mostly love being with my family and - generally speaking - with children. Walking, running, farming, biking, playing, working...doesn't matter, so long as my family and children are around.
