We had a fantastic time in this lovely apartment. Alessandro was very welcoming when he met us at the bus to take us to the apartment. He showed us everything. The apartment itself is very spacious and the decor is everything I would have thought an old Venetian apartment would be. Everything we needed was there. It's located in a great part of town, and everything is within an easy stroll -- restaurants, bars, all tourist sites. Potential for street noise because of some lively restaurants down below, but dealt with very easily with some pretty sound-proof windows and air conditioning. All in all, definitely would stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend to friends and family.
We contacted Alessandro to see if the apartment was available and he answered within the hour! We met him in the Piazza next to his apartment (him being there even before us).
The apartment is bigger than you imagine seeing the fotos, two beautiful bedrooms, each with an breathtaking view. Another very nice room with one bed and we even spotted a large chair under the stairs, that can be folded into another bed.
The kitchen has nice antique furniture and a modern stove. The livingroom is big, light and cosy.
Although we have been to Venice quite often, Alessadro took much of his time to tell us about places to see and restaurants to go to, we didn't know! Our stay was very, very pleasant, our favorite Piazza being right around the corner and on the day we left, Alessandro told us, we could leave whenever we were ready. Alessandro is a great person. When I contacted him about a tablet my husband had forgotten in the flat, he told me that it was no problem, he would send it. I can only deeply recommend you to stay in this beautiful, extremely well tended and clean apartment. And to meet Alessandro!!
Alessandro was a great host. He was responsive and kept in touch with us along the way as we were taking the train from Milan to Venice. He met us close to the train and helped with luggage which I greatly appreciated since we walked over a few small bridges with steps. The apartment was as pictured and even nicer. I contacted him a couple of times during our stay with questions, and he was kind enough to answer immediately and help out with answers. The location was great and away from the real touristy area. The air-conditioning worked well. As others have mentioned and Alessandro did too, the water pressure is not the best but typical for the area. I would recommend Ca'Barba and dealing with Alessandro!
Ca' Barba is a truly excellent apartment, and Alessandro is a perfect host. The location could not be more perfect for those seeking to have an authentic experience of Venice away from the main areas which are totally overcrowded with tourists and yet at this place two steps from San Pantalon and Campo Santa Margherita you are still close to everything. The apartment was perfectly clean. The furnishings are very comfortable. Alessandro was extremely helpful and gave us wonderful recommendations for places to eat and uncommon sites to see. I would definitely rent Ca' Barba again. Mille grazie !
Een fantastisch appartement op een fantastische locatie. In het centrum van Venetie is dit het ideale uitgangspunt om de stad in te gaan. Bijna alles is op loopafstand. Het is een comfortabel appartement in een leuke stijl, met een fijne airconditioning. Het ligt in een rustige buurt en wij vonden het erg gezellig.
Alessandro was extremely helpful and the apartment is great. Alessandro met us at a water taxi stop and walked us to the apartment. There he spent time with me, providing suggestions and recommendations, all of which were helpful. The apartment is comfortable and clean, and it has plenty of space. It also is in a nice location -- away from the most heavy tourist sites, but at the same time, close enough to walk to any of them. All in all, it helped start off a wonderful vacation in Italy. If (when) we return to Italy, we will look forward to staying here again.
Nous sommes restés une semaine dans cet appartement : il est idéalement placé, très confortable et la climatisation est un avantage non négligeable en plein été. Alessandro est un hôte plein d'attentions, qui nous a donné des éléments utiles pour la vie à Venise - dont l'épicerie au pied de l'immeuble, qui est hautement recommandable.
Au final, une adresse d'une grande qualité.
Om værten, Alessandro
I was born in Venice and grown... in Venice... (to be honest, i studied math in Ferrara). I love reading, sports - i play basket- music, and i adore sailing. I'd try to describe my self but probably its for you to say.
