What an incredible place! Beautiful, tasteful apartment, well fitted-out, incredible views, perfect location close to San Marco and Rialto (which was very helpful as the Vaporetto's went on strike while we were there!) Can not recommend this highly enough - 5 stars.
This flat has a great location, only 5-10 minutes walk from San Marco, and 2 minutes from the Santa Maria Formosa. Also only 10 minutes walk from the Rialto. So location is A1. The flat itself is very nice, spacious and clean with a good amount of character as well. The roof top terrace is also wonderful to have a late afternoon beer on. The only negative we had for our stay was that the wifi in the flat was very poor. We notified Davide who indicated that he might look to change suppliers. Overall a very good experience.
Response from Davide:
Unfortunately, we had some problems with the internet provider during Jason's stay but now (6 April 2014) we have fixed them and the connection works great.
This appartment was wonderful. We really enjoyed the central location (5 min from San Marco, 15 min from Rialto) and the view. I must say that having a beer on the Altana after a long walking day in the streets of Venice is one of the great moment of our stay. The communication with Davide was very easy and the organization to pick us up from the airport shuttle was great. The appartment was perfectly clean. I highly recommend it!
The apartment was just as advertised, clean and welcoming. There was all we needed.
The reservation was canceled 113 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Very nice and comfortable appartment with a great view on Venice.
Communication with Davide was easy and efficent. We had a really great time in Venice and we highly recommand this flat.
Like everyone else says about this apartment, it's a dreamy, great place to stay. I almost hate to write a review, because it's more like a secret to keep than something to tell the world about. The salty smell of the old building, the wide marble staircase, the big wooden doors, the rose marble bathroom -- it all makes you feel like the heir to some fortune passing your days in your Venice hide-away. The view out the sitting room window over the rooftops to San Marco cathedral and the campanile is grand. We stayed in February, but were lucky enough to have one sunny day warm enough to sit on the roof deck for lunch. The kitchen is well-equipped, and there is a Coop supermarket five minutes, one Baroque church and one canal away. We were sad to leave.
The apartment has wimax-type internet, which is subject to slowdowns around 8-9 pm when every tourist in Venice comes home to log on and compete for base station bandwidth, but overall the internet connection was great, and I made heavy use of it due to work obligations.
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful apartment, despite the winter tides. It's well situated and is ultra comfortable. Greta who met us at the ferry wharf was extremely helpful and friendly. She guided us to the apartment and was full of interesting suggestions. We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone. We did not meet David, however he was a gracious and considerate host.
I truly magical stay here. The apartment was absolutely beautiful. Light and spacious, fantastic views , very well equipped for self catering .
Location is amazing, very convenient for arrival by boat and moments from the main tourist attractions . Yet quiet and has a private terrace . Lives up to its "Spectacular views "
Lots of great bars nearby.
Davide was a brilliant host, very quick to respond to all enquiries and very helpful .
I would definitely return !
A dos pasos de San Marco, el apartamento es perfecto. Muy espacioso, decorado con gusto y muy bien situado. La terraza (altana) tiene unas vistas preciosas.
Al lado de casa hay una panadería y una tienda de verduras y fruta. La comunicación con Davide ha sido muy fluída. En definitiva, un apartamento completamente recomendable.
Davide is really a special person: he likes to travel and to experience the daily and authentic life of the places he visits. He loves art history, local cuisines and wild seaside landscapes. These passions drive his always present wish to move! His sensibility and smartness stand out also in the job he does: he has a great customer-oriented aptitude and takes in the highest considerations the needs of the people he works with. I can say from my direct experience he is a wonderful travel mate and a even more wonderful host!
