Description from manager

Alcova is a newly listed, very bright and quiet apartment located along the Arsenale Canal in the Castello District with a lovely terrace.

This area of the Castello District is now in high demand between connoisseurs, artists and true Venetians because of its genuineness and antique historical heritage. This is the oldest part of the city, where everything started more than a millennium ago and still today it is preserved almost integrally. The Serenissima Republic built here the Arsenale in the XII Century, which made the city state the most influential maritime power of the world for centuries.

Beside the rich cultural heritage, in this area recently opened a variety of good and inexpensive local bars and restaurants. Last but not least, during the Biennale period this area becomes the centre of the creative and alternative artists community, exhibiting at Corderie dell’Arsenale, Giardini della Biennale and in many collateral events organized by its vibrant community.

The terrace is by far the highlight of the property: the view that you can enjoy from here is wide open and truly Venetian. The large Arsenale Canal is closed to boat traffic, therefore this spot is particularly quiet end discrete. The terrace is furnished with a table, chairs and sunchair which is perfect for a relaxing breakfast or an aperitif at sunset. The brand-new awning offers the possibility to use it also during very hot days or when raining.

It is composed of a very bright loft-style living and dining area with kitchenette, double bed, large wardrobe and closet space, a luminous bathroom with shower cabin. The sofa-bed in the living is as comfortable as a normal bed and can easily be opened and closed, so during the day you can use the living room freely.

The kitchen features: 4 gas burners stove, fridge, dishwasher, microwave oven, kettle, coffee maker. The amenities of this apartment include washing machine, Wi-Fi, air conditioning, independent heating system, TV.

The Alcova is perfect for a romantic couple that wishes to spend intimate time in total comfort. In the past in Venice the Alcova in fact was the bedroom of the Palazzo that was reserved for the newly married couples, where they use to spend the first night after the wedding…
