Description

A cheerful, comfy and newly restored one bedroom apartment in the solidly authentic and unspoilt neighbourhood of Santa Giustina, peacefully located between the Fondamente Nove waterfront and the Arsenale district of Castello. On the third floor with lift and overlooking a very bright internal courtyard and neighbouring rooftops, Ca' San Lorenzo invites you into the privileged ranks of the true Venetian resident for the duration of your holiday, well away from the tourist throngs and souvenir stalls (yet still within walking distance of St. Mark's) and set within an area offering some of Venice's most memorable sensory delights. Crisp and freshly appointed, the apartment has traditional Venetian terrazzo flooring throughout (a treat for the feet after a busy day exploring the calles) and a beamed main living room incorporating a comfortable sitting area, dining space and a well-fitted modern kitchen. The bedroom, also with beams, is nicely decorated, enjoys plenty of natural light and has a double bed. The modern bathroom is well-sized and has a large shower while the apartment's air-conditioning, internet (on request) and washing machine ensures you enjoy all the comforts of a home-away-from-home. Quietly positioned in a tranquil, sleepy area shared with a barely discernable trickle of inquisitive and well-informed visitors seeking out the 'genuine' everyday Venice of gently flapping washing lines, sun-dappled courtyards and characterful neighbourhoods, Ca' San Lorenzo is within a stone's throw of the monumental Dominican Basilica di Santi Giovanni e Paolo (known as 'Zanipolo' in dialect - one of the largest churches in Venice and burial place of no fewer than 25 Venetian Doges) and on the 'right' side of town for visiting the Biennale Pavilions at Arsenale and Giardini. Perhaps take time to absorb the Carpaccio paintings at the richly atmospheric Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni nearby ('St Jerome and the Lion' is a particular favourite!) or take in the imposing facade of the cavernous Church of San Lorenzo (supposed resting place of famous Venetian explorer Marco Polo (1255-1324) before his body was lost during its rebuilding, now closed to the public and directly opposite the 'Questura' office of Donna Leon's fictional Commissario Guido Brunetti). Within easy reach of a 'Punto' supermarket near San Lorenzo and the small local shops of Salizada San Francesco and Barbaria Del Tole for an easy self-catering stay and for doing as much, or as little, as you like! Rental price includes GAS, ELECTRICITY, LINEN and FINAL CLEANING OUR COMMENT A charming and relaxing holiday base with all mod cons, perfectly suited to individuals and couples seeking a truly authentic Venetian experience at an affordable price.
