The Experience

This simple, lofty apartment in a 15th-century palazzo is seconds from the majestic Arsenale in the small Campo do Pozzi. Now a major hub for the world famous Biennale, Arsenale was once the heart of the Venetian naval industry. Enter through a leafy courtyard, climb two steep floors (no lift) and you’re greeted with minimal yet warm, classic furnishings – an antique tapestry hangs in the living room, with its original mosaic floors, and views over the canal Rio Degli Scudi add to the sense of calm.  Pick up supper in one of the many food shops nearby and make the most of the bright, practical kitchen  – the table seats six comfortably.  No kettle or coffee machine as it fuses the electrics but what better excuse to try the abundance of local cafés and bars. Bedrooms, both light with shutters and terrazzo flooring also overlook the canal; the double and adjacent twin, have an ornate and slightly bohemian styling and are very peaceful.  A big bathroom has pretty pink vintage (original) tiles and a second shower room is useful for sharers.  Great for those who like to be off the tourist track yet close enough to walk to see the sights.

The flat is wonderful, and we were pleased with perfect weather. The oak tree in the garden was just turning an autumnal gold giving us a glorious view down the canal. I thought it would be just the place to write, sitting between the two windows


Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend in Venice. Your apartment was the perfect base for our exploration. The area is just perfect because of how peaceful it is. I hope we get the chance to return soon.

Simon, London

Wonderful place to explore Venice from. We visited with our two children (3 and 7) and had a very successful holiday. Great to be able to have a bit of down time in the spacious flat after a long day of walking and be able to cook for the kids at home. Would highly recommend.

Denise, Bristol

Superb location and beautiful flat with high ceilings, original features and shutters out to the canal. Great for a family who want to save money and cook in. Supermarket nearby, lots of bars and patisseries. Walk to St Marks within 10 minutes (depending on route down the calle!), Arsenale area pretty and quiet. True sense of the real Venice, not very touristy and peaceful with only the sound of the church bells. Would absolutely return to the same flat and do it all again!

Johanna, Salisbury

Just to say we had a wonderful time at your place- it was everything we hoped for and more. I especially enjoyed reading the old copy of Elizabeth David's book on Italy and my partner enjoyed the Mussolini biography.


Very comfortable flat in a peaceful and convenient setting away from the crowds. Well proportioned rooms, terrazzo floors and views over the Rio.

Robin, Winchester

Your flat suited us perfectly - we would love to rent it again....


We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day stay and particularly the quiet charm of the area around the Campo do Pozzi. As it was our first time in Venice your great selection of books in the living room were much appreciated as useful and inspiring pointers for exploring the city. We were also glad for your....recommending the local restaurant - Da Jonny - where we enjoyed 2 delicious meals and found the maitre d and staff so friendly and helpful.


We had a fantastic time in Venice and have some wonderful memories. The apartment was a perfect place to stay and in a great position away from the crowds but close enough to easily walk everywhere. We couldn’t have asked for better stay.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Giles & Alexandra FitzHerbert

  • The Venice Biennale now lasts from May to November and includes not only the original site and the vast sheds of the old Arsenale but also an increasing number of pop up venues all over Venice, often in palaces not otherwise open to the public.
  • If the weather gets hot it is only two stops on the vaporetto from Arsenale to the Lido. Or if you fancy a good meal, since 2015 there has been an excellent new trattoria, da Jonny, in the nearby Campo de le Gate.
  • Keep away from the main tourist crowds by exploring the north side of Venice, districts Castello and Cannaregio, which include such lovely spaces as Campo Sta Maria Formosa and Campo Saints Giovanni and Paolo
  • Venice does not have the best restaurants in Italy but there are still lots of small greengrocer stalls with first class fresh fruit and veg, as well as excellent, small, well hidden supermarkets with special butcher and delicatessen sections.
  • For wine you can always fill up your empty plastic bottles with the inexpensive wine on tap at the cafe on the opposite side of Campo do Pozzi (the white Tokay and the red Malbec are recommended)
  • There are too many shops in Venice selling masks but at the same time there is a good number of small craft places selling lovely papers, handmade leather and textiles. The more time you spend walking in Venice the more you will hit on such places.
