Venice Villa 3
This newly listed apartment features one of the most beautiful roof top views on San Marco, San GIorgio and the Venetian Lagoon. Located on thr third floor, at the beginning of the authentic and lively Via Garibaldi, only 2 minutes’ walk to the Arsenale Vaporetto stop, this fascinating attic is bright, airy and quiet.
This area of the Castello District is now in high demand between connoisseurs, artists and true Venetians because of its genuineness and antique historical heritage. This is the oldest part of the city, where everything started more than a millennium ago and still today it is preserved almost integrally. The Serenissima Republic built here the Arsenale in the XII Century, which made the city state the most influential maritime power of the world for centuries.
Beside the rich cultural heritage, in this area there has recently opened a variety of good and inexpensive local bars and restaurants. Last but not least, during the Biennale period this area becomes the centre of the creative and alternative artists community, exhibiting at Corderie dell’Arsenale, Giardini della Biennale and in many collateral events organized by its vibrant community.
The terrace is by far the highlight of the property: the view that you can enjoy from here is simply stunning. On clear days you can spot the Alpsin the north; San Marco, the Salute Church and San Giorgio Island on the west; the Venetian Lagoon and the Lido Island on the south. The sunny "Altana" is furnished with a table and 4 chairs which is perfect for a relaxing breakfast or an aperitif at sunset.
The apartment is composed of a large loft-style living and dining area with nice steel kitchen, a double bedroom with large wardrobe, a luminous bathroom with shower stall and a small mezzanine located between the living room and the terrace, accessible through the easy-to-climb spiral staircase that leads to the “Altana” (traditional wooden roof-top terrace). The mezzanine is very cosy: here you can find a futon bed with plenty of pillows, which you can use as a reading corner. The sofa-bed in the living room is as comfortable as a normal bed and can easily be opened and closed, so during the day you can use the living space freely.
The high-tech kitchen features a professional 5 gas burner stove, large fridge, dishwasher, freezer, gas oven, kettle, etc. The amenities of this apartment include washing machine, Wi-Fi, air conditioning, independent heating system, Smart TV and a Sonos Hi-Fi system.
Please note that the spiral staircase is not suitable for children below 4 years old unless they are used to such stairs.The apartment is not recommended for people with limited mobility, as the last part of the stairway is quite steep. The Arsenale Terrace is perfect for a couple that wishes plenty of living space and comfort, but it can comfortably host 3 people. It is full of light during all day and has everything you need for an unforgettable holiday. It truly makes you feel at home away from home!

Ristorante al Covo-Castello 3968 P. 041 5223812 www.ristorantealcovo.com Six minute walk from apartment. For years, Diane and Cesare Binelli's Al Covo has set the standard of excellence for traditional, refined Venetian cuisine. The Binellis are dedicated to providing their guests with the freshest, highest-quality fish from the Adriatic, and vegetables, when at all possible, from the islands of the Venetian lagoon and the fields of the adjacent Veneto region. Although their cuisine could be correctly termed "classic Venetian," it always offers surprises like the juicy crispness of their legendary fritto misto—reliant upon a secret, nonconventional ingredient in the batter—or the heady aroma of their fresh anchovies marinated in wild fennel, an herb somewhat foreign to Veneto. The main exception to Al Covo's distinct local flavor is Diane's wonderful Texas-inspired desserts, especially her dynamite chocolate cake. Some outside tables. Expensive
