Can't explain how much we adore Venice - our 8th visit but never felt so close to being a Venetian than in this apartment. The Frari is a magical part of renaissance Venice and we were almost within touching distance. Special indeed. Clean and comfortable apartment full of traditional charm. Only worked out on the day we left though, why the doorbell rang every morning around 10am - a call by the bin collectors! Thank you so much!

“Fantastic view”
Reviewed April 29, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Best thing about the apartment was the fantastic view of the church and canal from the lounge balcony. The magic of Venice at your window.
Apartment was well located,secure and had everything you need.
Suffered a bit from street noise at night, might be a problem for light sleepers or children but if you remember to close the shutters not too bad.

Loved the apartment. Loved the location. Loved everything. Would stay here again in a flash. Great for exploring on foot. We even walked over to Piazza San Marco and it took only about 30 mins. Loved it.

“Good value in a great location”

This is a very nice apartment that is well represented by the pictures in the listing. It was very clean and quite comfortable. The location is ideal, as it is 5 minutes walk from the vaporetto stop and many of the cultural attractions are nearby, yet the area is not overrun with tourists the way the San Marco area is.

The one negative is the bed, which is very hard, and the pillows, which are flat.

“Good apartment, great location”

Up one flight of stairs to a nicely updated apartment, but which retains some charm of the old building. Well equipped kitchen. washing machine in the bathroom...no dryer but plenty of space to hang clothes to dry. Comfortable living room furniture. TV has English language channels. WiFi works well.

Best part is the view from the windows, which open onto a tiny plant filled balcony and overlook a small canal, gondolas, a stone bridge, a piazza, and a beautiful church. The sounds are marvelous. The neighborhood is excellent. A large grocery store a few hundred feet away, many restaurants of all types within a ten minute walk, and a gelato shop on the piazza. About five minutes walk to a vaporetto, and fifteen or so to the train station for more vaporetto lines. A hint...when it comes time to move suitcases around, the hotel porters around the train station will come to the apartment and cart them there for you for about $20, well worth it to avoid moving heavy bags over the many bridges.

Not easy to find the apartment, but the owner provides excellent directions, and the dei Frari church is well known. We found that using the vaporettos and walking was easy to figure out after a couple of days.

“Very Venetian!”

Staying in Al Fogher was a real pleasure. The apartment was spotlessly clean on arrival, and equipped well enough to live in permanently, let alone for a week's holiday - dish washer, oven, microwave, washing machine etc.

Not that we used any of these as the apartment is surrounded by fabulous places to eat out, eg Campo San Polo, Campo Santa Marguerita and Campo San Toma.

It was only 10 minutes walk from the station/Piazzalle Roma, and centrally placed for everything else. - tou can makev the Rialto Bridge in about 15 minutes, and San Marco in 30 by foot. There is of course also easy access to the San Toma vaporetto stop.

We loved the french windows looking out over the Frari church- brilliant for people watching!

We enjoyed "Al Fogher" ! A bit off the beaten path yet a very convenient location. The presence of the Basilica Maria Gloriosa dei Frari is a most impressive neighbor! . A canal.... a piazza, Ease to Vaporetto #1. Kitchen? Great! Wifi? Great! Grocery around the corner. Heat. Air Conditioner. Relatively Quiet especially with windows closed. Clean, comfortable and very accommodating! Filippo and Franco are very helpful! This property is a gem. A neighborhood flavor. Enjoy and Salute!
