We (2) did not stay in the B&B but rather in one of their apartments - "Colomba" Apartment - a ground-floor apartment beautifully situated on the corner of a small square, "Campiello della Colomba", and on the edge of a small canal in the Castello District. This is a quiet neighbourhood where Venetian families live and is only a few minutes walk along a "calle" to the fine street of Via Garibaldi with its shops, cafes and restaurants frequented by the local people.
The Giardini waterbus stop is only a few minutes away, through the gardens, with easy and frequent access to all parts of Venice. A 12 to 15 minute stroll along the Canal San Marco with its exciting bustle and beautiful views of San Giorgio on one hand and San Marco on the other brings you to St Mark's Square.
Silvia and Piero are the perfect hosts, with excellent information beforehand, allowing us to leave our luggage in the B&B until the apartment was available and then accompanying us there. They recommended excellent local cafes and restaurants.
The accommodation is excellent with a combined lounge, dining and very well- equipped kitchen. The bedroom is quite large with a double bed and single bed and extensive storage space (the apartment can sleep up to 5 people (with a sofa bed in the lounge)).
The bathroom is excellent also with shower, washbasin, bidet and toilet. There is also a washing machine and the apartment is centrally heated.
Everything is beautifully clean and there are plenty of fresh towels, linen etc.
We thought it was an excellent place to stay in Venice - you feel you are living in the real Venice yet you are very conveniently situated for all that Venice has to offer.
I would definitely stay there again when in Venice and I would have no hesitation in recommending "Colomba" Apartment.
