Cannaregio Apartments
If you opt to spend your holiday in Venice in a rental apartment in the Cannaregio district you will certainly find it an ideal location for making the most of your holiday in this magical city. This district is especially convenient for anyone who decides to come to Venice by train with the Santa Lucia railway station which has easy access from the mainland. Apartments in Cannaregio are excellent for exploring Venice’s lagoon. From the Fondamenta Nove to the north of the city, you can reach the islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello, attractions which should not be missed during your stay in the lagoon city.
Arsenale - Biennale Apartments
Most visitors, who choose Venice as their holiday destination, choose accommodation in the very central areas. Those who wish to discover the “real” Venice, however, prefer booking an apartment off the beaten track, away from the tourist crowds, shops and restaurants which are typical of the centre. For this type of traveller, we suggest renting an apartment in the Arsenale – Biennale district of Venice, a tranquil area in the Castello district, which is known as the “tail of Venice”. Far from the tourist crowds in the centre, it is an elegant, residential area from where one has a stunning view of the southern part of the lagoon and the islands of San Giorgio, La Grazia and San Servolo Via Garibaldi, the principal street in the district, is renowned for its traditional shops and restaurants, which are far from the “tourist trap” concept bars in the centre.
Salute - Accademia Apartments
This zone is elegant and very peaceful, with a wealth of wonderful art galleries where you can see and enjoy classical, modern and contemporary works of art. Amongst the best art galleries, we should mention the Guggenheim Museum of Modern Art, the Punta della Dogana Museum of Contemporary Art, as well as the Accademia Galleries which house some of the most important works of classical art in the city by artists of the calibre of Titian, Tintoretto, Leonardo Da Vinci, Bellini and many others.
San Marco Apartments
Choosing the right accommodation in Venice is essential so that you can enjoy in full the beauty and unique charm of this timeless, world famous city. What better way to do this than by choosing an apartment in the San Marco area, known as the “jewel” of Venice because it is small and precious?

You will be just a short distance from Piazza San Marco, one of the most beautiful and famous piazzas in the world, surrounded by unrivalled architectural beauty and centuries-long history.
Rialto Apartments

Choosing to rent an apartment in the Rialto area means you will certainly make the most of your holiday in Venice, as there is a wide selection of bars and cafés, luxury shops such as the Fondaco dei Tedeschi and many different types of restaurant. A few metres from your rental apartment you will find the Rialto Bridge, the oldest and most picturesque bridge in Venice. It crosses the Grand Canal and is synonymous with the very history and architecture which so typify this city.
Rialto Market - Frari Apartments

Here in the Sestiere (district) of San Polo, a few steps from your Venice flat, is the historic Rialto Market. It is well worth a visit and you will be able to mingle with Venetians and tourists to browse or buy the best fish, fruit and vegetable for lunch or supper.

From Mestre it is possible to reach the historic center in 20 minutes either by car or by bus or train. Connections to Venice are convenient and frequent.
Giudecca Apartments
Our rental apartments in Venice are also located in the less touristy, mainly residential zones inhabited by Venetians. Some of our holiday apartments are located on the Giudecca, a group of islands separated from the rest of the old centre of Venice by the canal bearing its name. It is the ideal zone for those who wish to immerse themselves in the natural beauty and tranquillity of the lagoon during their stay in this magical city. This part of Venice takes its name, Giudecca, from the first Jewish settlement on the island before the establishment of the Ghetto.
This list of apartments that we offer for rent are located on the mainland: it means in all areas near the Municipality of Venice (Ancient City and Mestre). All the apartments have in common the fact that they are located in municipalities neighboring Venice from where it is easy to reach the historic center of the ancient city. These apartments often stand out for their excellent quality/price ratio. Check the exact location of your apartment on the map.
Islands of the Venice Lagoon
The magnificent Venice Lagoon is the largest lagoon in the Mediterranean Sea and has been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. In addition to the islands that make up the historic center of Venice, the lagoon of Venice is home to other very characteristic islands. In the northern part of the lagoon we find the island of Murano with its glass factories, further north we find the magnificent and colorful island of Burano and the ancient island of Torcello. Moving east we find the Lido of Venice, famous for its beautiful beach and home to the "Venice Film Festival".
Apartments on the Grand Canal, Historic Centre of Venice
The buildings overlooking the Grand Canal are recognised, historically and universally, as being the most remarkable in Venice. They are the most prestigious both from the architectural and artistic point of view and for their position from which you can enjoy a breathtaking panorama which will fill your eyes and heart with its timeless beauty. The Grand Canal, which is the city’s main canal, is effectively a huge serpent, some four kilometres long, which crosses Venice starting from the Ponte della Libertà, the bridge which joins the mainland to the historic centre and ending up at the Basin of St. Mark’s.
