Beautiful studio with a pictoresque view, in a real venetian area; all amenities available. Ideal for Biennale, St.Marc, Arsenale. Quiet, authentic neighborhood
Beautiful 36 M2 studio, open space in Castello with a beautiful, sunny view, has double bed + sofa, kitchenette, bathroom. The area is authentic, all amentities shops available - including a boat selling fruits and vegetables in front of the house!
Museums and tourist attractions nearby (San Marco, Arsenale, San Pietro di Castello, the most magical of all venetian squares). Very nice walks in the area. Very well connected to public transport and very close to San Marco and the Lido.
Interaction with guests is only upon arrival and in case of problems
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri of Venice, Italy. The district grew up from the thirteenth century around a naval dockyard on what was originally the Isole Gemini, although there had been small settlements of the islands of San Pietro di Castello (for which the sestiere is named), also called Isola d'Olivolo, since at least the eighth century.
The district became divided between the Arsenale, then the largest naval complex in Europe, and the monasteries in the north of the quarter. It was later altered by Napoleon, who planned what are now the Bienniale Gardens, and still more recently the island of Sant'Elena has been created, and land drained at other extremities of the quarter.
Other attractions in Castello include the Scuola di San Marco, the Church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, the Scuola of San Giorgio degli Schiavoni, the church of San Giorgio dei Greci, the Campo Santa Maria Formosa, the Church of La Pietà and the Church of San Zaccaria.
Very convenient, Giardini, San Pietro di Castello, Arsenale boat stops are only a few minutes' walk from the apartment
great authentic calm venetian area. Very calm, sunny apartment with pictiresque, sunny view. The best thing to do is to have breakfast in front of the window and see people passing in front of you (and not seeing you!) as you sip your mornings' espresso coffee

Marc had been a great host! He picked us from the vapporetto despite us arriving late evening. The studio was wonderful with a welcome basket prepared for us and had all the amenities we needed. It was especially important for us as we wanted to cook and do our laundry. I highly recommend to all who is looking for a cosy home stay!:)
nous venions spécialement à Venise pour la Biennale d'art contemporain, cet appartement est particulièrement bien situé pour en profiter pleinement. Quartier calme et sympathique, tout près du centre et des lieux principaux de la biennale. De plus il est très agréable de trouver dans l'appartement des fruits, du café, thé et autres petites choses qui permettent de se sentir accueillis...et aussi quelques livres et CD. Notre séjour a donc été très agréable. Merci.
Great apartment. It had everything we needed and Marc even left us some food to welcome us. The location is great. I would definitely stay here again.
Great little apartment on the canal! Great location! We really enjoyed our stay :-)
The studio was perfect for us, located in a neigborhood just outside the busy touristic area but stil within walking distance to all the major sites. We could experience a more tranquil Venice like this. Marc was great in meeting our needs, we had a late flight and got to Venice about 1am. Freddie was at the boat station waiting for us and even helped us with my bag.
When we got to the studio, there were juice, beers, prosecco, fruits, bread, milk, cookies, jam, butter and coffee for our breakfast and everything was delicious!
The studio is spacious enough for a quick stay like ours, with all the ammenities we could need, AC, good wifi, fridge, cooktop, washing mashine, etc. There's no TV, which is just right, you don't need one there. One thing tough is that during the day, the studio is a little bit too bright, which is also good because you won't want to waste time sleepping to much.
The view from the canal is quite nice, the feeling from the neoghborhood is amazing and yes, it is hilarious to see people checking themselves out in the mirrorred windows, not knowing we can see them.
It was a wonderful experience and I would definetely recommend it! Thank you Marc and Freddie!

Marc's apartment is perfect for two people - clean, cosy, and with plenty of natural light. We were in town for the Biennale and the location is perfect - 5 minutes walk to Arsenale and Giardini. Great local neighbourhood that is just far enough from the throngs of tourists that permeate San Marco. Many delicious restaurants and a beautiful park nearby - all the ingredients for a great stay in Venice.
Simply superb, in every little thing. Beautiful people, extrordinary location. Highly recommended to all Venice lovers out there.
Great apartment in an absolutely perfect location for the Biennale - couldn't have been better located.
Got picked up from the Arsenale boat stop from the airport and the hosts left a lovely welcome pack of basics like milk / bread etc which was a lovely touch.
Wifi difficult to get to work, but not a problem as lots of free wifi spots around the city.
Would highly recommend.
Studio agréable, calme et idéalement placé dans un des endroits les plus agréables de Venise.
Les hôtes sont efficaces et disponibles pour des conseils avisés sur la ville.
Highly recommended. Excellent apartment from which to enjoy Venice especially the biennale. Very good location in a largely Venetian neighbourhood. Very close to supermarket, fruit and vegetables boat, bars and restaurants. The apartment itself has character. Simple but comfortable and the air conditioning works well. A very nice touch is being met at the vaparetto station from the airport and being shown the apartment.
