The accommodation comprises: an entrance hall, a small hall with a lovely view over the Grand Canal and Rialto Market, divided into a work area with kitchenette-dining area and a sitting area with sofa bed, a wardrobe with single bed, a bathroom with shower, a loft with a double bed with a small store. An additional warehouse is located on the floor below. The accommodation is equipped with air conditioning, satellite TV, wi-fi. The small accommodation with Mezzanine, as aforesaid, has just been restored. Only the stairwell to access to the apartment, after having been placed in safety, it is still waiting for the authorization of the Superintendence, to which all buildings that overlook the Grand Canal are subject, for Renovation. The style of care, the intense brightness, the oak beams, the gondolas and the Grand Canal ... give this little garret a unique charm. The small bright Attic is located in a charming location in the 'Campo de la Pescaria', where every day (except Sundays) is held the lively and picturesque Market Town of Fish and Vegetables. This is the only one Venetian 'Campo' which leans out on the Grand Canal and, delimited to the right by the 'Fabbriche Nuove' of Jacopo Sansovino, it looks at the Ca' d'Oro'. Just look out the windows to be absorbed in a typical Venetian atmosphere, to observe the passage of gondolas and motor boats and to enjoy the beauty of the palaces on the water. Gone out of the apartment you are in the heart of the City: 'bacari', restaurants, shops and stores of all kinds... The central location allows you to easily reach in few minutes some of the most famous monuments, including the Basilica dei Frari and the Scuola Grande di San Rocco. Overcome the Rialto Bridge, a walk of 10 minutes leads through the 'Mercerie'' ('Marzarie' in Venetian), that is the main commercial artery of the City with its system of 'calli' (where shops of luxury and boutiques of high fashion they lean out, from Gucci to Cartier, from Vuitton to Bulgari...), up to Piazza San Marco. The Island of Lido, the exclusive beach of Venice, a true treasure chest of Liberty, where every year is taking place the Venice International Film Festival, it is connected to the City and to the mainland by efficient boats, 'vaporetti' and ferry calling at its main ports. In the 'Campo de la Pescaria' there is the Stop Rialto Mercato for the Vaporetto Linea 1, which allows you to visit the entire City and the Lido, the Beach of Venezia, and there is the Santa Sofia Gondola Service that allows you to cross the Grand Canal and reach the other bank of the channel, and that, together, make very easy to gain access to the apartment.. In addition a Public Pier in the 'Campo de la Pescaria' allows to the Water Taxis disembarkation and embarkation of Guests in front of the apartment.

Home away from home. Perfect apartment in the perfect location!
FANTASTIC LOCATION: close to Vaporetto stops; Rialto produce markets at your doorstep as well as other shops selling local produce and touristy type objects and late night markets; daily walks over the Rialto Bridge; walking distance to opera and other performances; only a few Vaporetto stops to Piazza San Marco and other 'must sees'. Any time spent on a Vaporetto on the Grand Canal is a visual wonder. AMAZING VIEW: seriously, the most beautiful view, sitingt at the dining table and look on the Grand Canal of the most beautiful old city in the world (yes, I love it). MODERN FACILITIES: modern kitchen and bathroom facilities, all self contained, aircon etc...Very very comfortable bed. Thoughtful provision of kitchen and washing items etc LOVELY HELPFUL OWNERS: the owners were so thoughtful and helpful, going out of their way to ensure that everything was as I needed. I will most definitely return. This became my home away from home for 10 nights and I absolutely loved it. I am widely travelled, and this was a highlight of my life which I will never forget.

Perfect Apartment, Perfect Location and Perfect Owners
We all aspire when organising a holiday rental to find the perfect thing in the right place at the right price. Peace of mind is a high priority, especially when visiting a different country. Well, you have simply nothing to worry about if you book this one. Don’t be even slightly concerned by the proximity to the fish market. During my 3 days there while the market was in full swing, I didn’t detect the slightest smell of fish in the apartment even when the windows were wide open and the temperature was around 30 degrees. The real benefit of the location though is a traghetto (gondola) ferry service @2 euro pp across the canal virtually outside the door to San Sofia and the Vaporetto stop of Rialto Mercado barely 50 metres away ensuring easy transport in every direction. This stop is far less congested than that of the Rialto stop on the other side of the bridge. This makes a world of difference during arrival and leaving as trust me, the last way you want to start or finish any break is by trailing luggage through the maze of alleyways in Venice in the heat and humidity. The apartment is stunning, double glazed, beautifully decorated and looks through large picture windows which can be fully opened, directly across the Grand Canal to the other side. Generous living space, fabulous shower room, choice of very comfortable beds, really good air air-conditioning, wifi, great cooking facilities and the whole place is absolutely spotless. There’s a fridge with a freezer section for your ice, an extensive range of china and cutlery plus good pots, pans and utensils. Essentials are provided such as tea, coffee sugar etc and there's a dishwasher. There are shops for supplies nearby such as the Coop (a supermarket) bakery, wine stores and of course choices of everything else fresh on the doorstep. The area quietens down late afternoon and on the days the fish market is closed. At night I was very comfortable just wondering about or sitting at one of the many restaurants that are only a stone's throw away from the apartment. A great benefit if travelling alone. But what really added value was the attitude of the lovely owners. Before my trip, they provided me with essential information and great advice on arrival options, the advance purchase of transport and museum passes etc. Every query I made was answered promptly and in detail by Michela, who provided her mobile number to assist en route. Arrival was made easy, being met off my shared water taxi only yards from the apartment by Giovani who was equally helpful and charming. During my stay, the opportunity for ongoing communication provided great peace of mind. I knew if there was any problem they would have offered immediate assistance, not something I've always found. I speak from 20 years experience renting in Venice and this apartment is a real gem and offers fantastic value for money. I suggest you don’t miss it. I will definitely be coming back.

charming
Our hosts Michela and Giovanni were charming. We were met from the boat which made finding the apartment easy. We loved the apartment and the hustle and bustle of the market in the square below early every morning. We look forward to another stay.

Beautiful apartment with a fantastic view. My girlfriend and I loved our four night stay, Michela left lots of useful information in the apartment and getting keys was very straightforward. Internet and A/C worked perfectly. This was our third (and final) stop after Rome and Florence, and this was by far the best place we stayed in. We'll definitely be going back if we return to Venice.

Fantastic view of Grand Canal
This small apartment with double bed on a mezzanine floor is not for tall people due to the sloping roof and low beams on the mezzanine. It does have the most fantastic views of the canal which is bustling with activity and is beautiful at night. Despite being directly above the fish market it does not smell. The double glazing cuts out most noise, as the market opens early. The air con was effective as it was very hot the week we visited. There was lots of helpful advice and recommendations provided. Great value for money
