The Grassi is a stunning historic apartment of about 300 square meters, part of a prestigious 17th Century palace facing the Grand Canal, located in a quiet spot of the San Marco District only one minute walk to the San Samuele Vaporetto stop (next to the renowned Palazzo Grassi) and only 3 minutes' walk to the Sant' Angelo Vaporetto stop, where the Alilaguna ferry from the airport also docks. The apartment is close to Campo Santo Stefano and the Accademia Bridge, with a large variety of restaurants, bars and shops for sophisticated palates.
Few Venice holiday rentals offer such a spectacular view on the Grand Canal and on some of its most renown palaces such as Cà Rezzonico and Cà Foscari! The best way to gain access to this dream home is coming by private water taxi in only 30 minutes pleasant ride through the lagoon from the Venice Airport (we can arrange that for you).
The large monumental stairway to the second floor is not steep at all, but if you have plenty of luggage or mobility problems there is also an elevator. The apartment is composed of a spacious entrance room, a gigantic living room with view on the Canal Grande, a luminous dining room, a large kitchen, three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and plenty of storage spaces .
The living area of the apartment is particularly prestigious: it features high wooden beamed ceilings, Terrazzo Veneziano flooring, antique furniture and tall windows with panoramic canal view. There is plenty comfortable sitting space and a good video/audio entertainment system. While the kitchen is dated it is very spacious and well equipped (large fridge, freezer, oven, kettle, Italian and American coffee maker, dishwasher, washing machine, 5-burners' stove, etc...). The two bedrooms facing on the northern side of the building, one double and one twin, share a brand new bathroom with Jacuzzi, while the third bedroom facing south on the Grand Canal have access to the pink-tiled bathroom with shower. The beds are new and truly comfortable, while the style of the furnishings is decidedly classic Venetian.
It includes amenities such as air-conditioning in every room, Wi-Fi internet connection, modern appliances and maid/waitressing service on request. The Grassi apartment accommodates comfortably 6 discerning guests, but there is also an extra single bed that can be prepared on request for the 7th guest at 10% extra price. It is suitable for all travelers but special care have to be taken to avoid damages to some antiques and valuable textiles. Spoil yourself and your friends/family at the Grassi apartment!
Additional amenities include: iron & ironing board, smoking not permitted, elevator, central location, very spacious, panoramic view, grand canal view.TripAdvisor property ID 2373363...Read more
“Fantastically situated and appointed Venice apartment”
Left on 08/08/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Aug 8, 2013Stayed Jul 2013
The Grassi apartment is situated on the Grand Canal between the academia and Rialto bridges, so very central but not swamped by the tourist madness around St Mark's square. It is beautifully appointed with high ceilings, a mixture of antique and comfortable contemporary furniture, and has great views. It is a great base to explore Venice and come 'home' to relax and pretend you're a Venetian. We were really impressed by the service provided by Truly Venice before we arrived (very clear instructions) and during our stay: responsive, courteous (even when I rang at 11pm one time) and genuinely helpful. Thank you Daniela and Enrico!
