Piccola Perla is a charming apartment, ideally located in the San Antonin area of Castello in Venice, perhaps the world's most beautiful city. Ten minutes walk from St Mark's Square. San Antonin is easily accessible from the vaporetto (water-bus) stops at Arsenale or San Zaccaria. Water taxi can disembark at Ponte San Antonin.
The pretty Venice apartment has its own external door leading from the ramo, a quiet lane. This opens into the apartment's private courtyard.
The original building dates from the 16th Century. The restored apartment is enhanced by marble floors and the original beams. Perfect for two people taking a romantic or cultural holiday; the king size sofa bed in the sitting room can be used if children stay, or friends prefer their own bed.The private courtyard, where you can sip a complimentary glass of Prosecco, contains an ancient well, now filled with plants.
