Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5

This very comfortable and roomy flat is situated on the ground floor very near the Fondmenta de l'Arzere in Dorsoduro. The building dates from the end of the 19th century originally an olive oil warehouse, ( hence the name of the calle : de l'ogio, meaning "of the oil" in Venetian)and subsequently a boatbuider's workshop. The area, on the eastern edge of the city, is one of the oldest islands in Venice and one of the most ancient parishes, that of San Nicolo' dei Mendicoli, believed to date back to the VIIth century. Today the neighbourhood has a new focus, that of Venice's University of Architecture,( IUAV) housed in the ex-cotton mill of Santa Marta, and there is a lively flow of students during term time.
It is situated about five minutes away from the sunny Zattere embankment, where all Venetians love to walk and bask in the sun, especially in the colder winter months. Here is the famous ice cream bar, Nico's, and a good pizzeria .From the Zattere you can easily take a boat to the beaches of the Lido, the dunes of Alberoni, or the fishing port of Chioggia, or to the basilca of San Marco and its piazza, campanile, the clock tower and of course the Doges Palace Of course it is even better to walk there via the Accademia bridge . During the summer you could take a vaporetto to the Giardini of the Biennale. If you are feeling very energetic, you might even take a day trip in a fast boat leaving from the Stazione Marittima to one of the lovely towns of Croatia.

In five minutes by foot you can get from the flat to Campo Santa Margherita, where by day there are several market stalls selling fresh fish, fruit and vegetables, and which is very lively in the evenings with many "cicchetterie" (venetian style tapas), wine bars and cafes staying open till late. In this area there are also many beautiful churches to visit such as Santa Maria dei Carmini , the baroque Gesuati, and the gothic monastery church and cloisters of the Frari with the nearby scuola di San Rocco with the famous Tintoretto paintings . Nearer at hand there are the churches of San Sebastiano and San Nicolo' dei Mendicoli
