Venice is renowned for being quite unlike any other city in the world, with its complicated network of waterways, efficiently navigated by the vaporetto system. While a gondola ride is a must at least once, as a means of transport during your stay, the city is easy to explore on foot, being well divided into six distinctly unique and charming districts or 'sestieri'. The city's focal point is the Piazza San Marco, with its magnificent Basilica and the Doge’s Palace.
All our luxury holiday apartments to rent are centrally located in some of the most charming 'sestieri' of the city, including San Marco, Dorsoduro, and Castello. Several are in the district of San Polo, one of the liveliest areas, with its market stalls, small shops and local bars; its maze of narrow streets, leading to spacious squares and focal points such as Campo San Polo, the Frari church and Scuola di San Rocco. Several are close to the Rialto Bridge, where the large and colourful food market offers a diverse choice of fresh foods. Alternatively, small grocery stores and speciality food and wine shops are in no short supply, as are a variety of bars, cafés and restaurants, situated on virtually every street corner.
Also check out our luxurious collection of rental apartments on the character-filled and peaceful island of Giudecca, with stunning views across the water to Piazza San Marco. Here we have La Residenza, a 16th century residence converted into some of the most beautiful luxury apartments to be found anywhere. Other special Venetian holiday retreats include rental apartments in a beautifully renovated Palazzo in San Polo, a Palazzo on San Pietro di Castello, and a historic villa to rent on the island of Torcello. We also offer three magnificent luxury rental apartments in a historic Palazzo, right on the Grand Canal, with views of the famous Santa Maria della Salute church.
