This apartment is in the best district of Venice and about ten mins walk and just about equidistant to St. Marks and Rialto as well as the Arsenale (for Biennale fans). Even better it is just off the beaten track and in an area which is inhabited!
It is fairly cool in the summer (aircon in the drawing room, fans in the bedrooms) and cosy in the winter as it heats up quickly.
There is a shared kitchen and large drawing roomt guests disposal,.
There is also a court-yard you are welcome to use.
Double room in a two bedroom self contained apartment in the heart of Venice but just off the beaten track in a 1300 palazino. The wardrobe in the bedroom has been removed to give more space. Other hanging space is available.
Enter the palazzino through a wonderful private courtyard and up a marble staircase to the second floor which has been lovingly restored by craftsmen who have retained the original feel and methods of workmanship.
It is in the area place in Venice, just a few minutes to St Marks Square and Rialto yet just off the beaten path, so lovely and quiet. Also close to the BIENNALE exhibition and close to the boat stop for easy access to the Islands, including Lido for beaches and the Film Festival and the airport.
Easy access means no bridges with suitcases As it is on the first floor there is no flooding and only one set of stairs to climb!
There are lots of shops and restuarants nearby and a friendly cat lives on the premises.
There is a wonderful courtyard you can use during your stay.
Interaction with guests
I love to greet my guests in person if I am able to do so. In busy periods I may not be around much - if at all, and if I am at home I maybe working. Most guests make let Venice entertain them. If I am not around do call if urgent, or contact me through the airbnb website if you are having any difficulties.
Other things to note
The kitchen is always included during your stay, Because you may be sharing it, please always leave clean and tidy.
The bathroom is shared. Because you may be sharing it, please always leave clean and tidy. My maid comes to clean it daily if there are other visitors.
Apart from no smoking there are few house rules beyond the normal standard comportment when sharing.
The kitchen is always included during your stay- please keep it tidy.
Please behave in an orderly, respectable way, not disturbing the peace!
Don't let cats out onto the street
No smoking in the house at all, go into the court yard and dispose of cigarette butts. (please don't stub out and leave in the flower beds for example).
As utilities bills are astronomically high in Venice, please keep a mind on what you are using.
Check in 16.00- check out 10.00 a.m
If I am around, guests are welcome to leave suitcases on day of departure
Guests should let me know by email within 24 hours of booking of their arrival time, after which I send detailed directions and a good map.
Please check you have my mobile number before you arrive, and I have yours! Coverage in Venice is not very good, and sms sometimes take 24 hours so is not an acceptable form of communication for me.
