San Bortolo is a bright, airy and recently restored apartment strategically located at the foot of the Rialto Bridge in the oldest part of the historic town
It is found at the crossroad of the most important artistic and cultural itineraries, right behind the statue of Carlo Goldoni in Campo San Bartolomeo, the classic meeting place for local Venetians. The public ferries and private water taxi docks are a few meters far and no bridges in between.
It is a large apartment, bright and airy, recently restored. Receives light and sun at any time of the day because it opens on three sides. It is very functional, thanks to the layout of the rooms and furnishings. The living room and master bedroom overlook the lively Campo San Bartolomeo, the center of the commercial life of the old town. If you prefer not to participate in its vitality you just have to close the soundproof double-glaze windows for total silence.
The house is composed also of one twin/double bedroom, one single bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen and two luxury bathrooms with windows overlooking the picturesque and winding streets and roofs tops of the city. The entrance hall connects the various rooms and bathrooms being positioned centrally in the layout of the apartment.
The recent restoration has brought back to light antique frescoes, marble portal with ancient and characteristic graphite bricks used from the twelfth to the fifteenth century, which were hidden under the layers of the past renovations. These elements combine with other more recent ones like the colorful Venetian Terrazzo flooring, different in each room, and with the modernity of the service rooms, equipped with the latest comforts.
Even the furniture is composed of elements from various periods: the comfortable sofas and fresh linen combine with authentic 19th and 20th century pieces, inspired by industrial and famous contemporary designers. The paintings collected by the caring owners, who enjoy their holiday home in Venice when not rented, show that Venice can be represented by various international artists. The selection of photographic art books can drive excursions.
Simply step out home to find the solution to every need: bars, restaurants, osterie and bacari hidden in the nearby streets, department stores, pharmacies, banks... and the colorfull outdoor Rialto Market. A few more steps and you reach a less touristy and still highly authentic Venice, with spectacular lesser known sites.
The San Bortolo guarantees all modern comforts such as air conditioning system, efficient heating system, Wi-Fi internet connection, Satellite TV, DVD player, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster, 3 burners stove, fridge, etc...
The San Bortolo is a versatile apartment suitable to everyone, for both short and long term rentals.

Everything - the location itself, the interior of the apartement, the communication and coordination before and at the welcome was perfect, well organized, lovely. We can highly recommend the wonderful apartement - perfect for us, a familiy with 2 children. And not to forget the map with tipps for restaurants in walking distance (to be honest, everything is in walking distance ;-)) - really good recommendations - no single disappointment among them. Thanks for a good stay in beautiful Venice!October 2017, Kerstin (Germany)
Nous revenons tout juste de Venise et nous(famille de 4) sommes restés 7 nuits dans ce luxueux appartement qui est merveilleusement situé à 2 pas du pont Rialto, donc d'un arrêt bateau-bus, et à 10 minutes de marches de la Place St-Marc. L'appartement même sans ascenseur n'est pas trop haut(3ième)à monter. Nous avons visité presque tous les quartiers à pieds, Venise n'est pas immense, mais magique. L'air climatisé était parfait, ainsi que l'insonorisation des fenêtres. L'appartement est vraiment comme sur les photos,les lits confortables et Anna notre agent de liaison, aidante et disponible. Je le recommande chaudement. Des québécois satisfaits.May 2017, Sylvie (Anjou, CANADA)
We really enjoyed our stay at the San Bortolo apartment (4-11 August 2016). We were particularly impressed with Thomas from Truly Venice meeting us at the Rialto vaporetto stop and taking us to the apartment (my wife appreciated him carrying her suit case up the stairs as well!!) – this was the best introduction we have ever had and made such a pleasant change from having to find an address, to collect keys and to then follow a map to find the apartment (as has been our previous experiences booking through other agencies). Thanks also for the map Thomas prepared for us showing recommended places to eat/shop/visit – thanks again, that was very thoughtful. The apartment was very clean and tidy, exactly as depicted in the photos on the Truly Venice site. The beds were very comfortable and the apartment as a whole was a great place to be at the end of a busy day sight-seeing. We will definitely be recommending Truly Venice to our friends/family (my wife has already been looking at their other apartments for our next visit!).August 2016, Robert (USA)
We LOVED staying in your clean, beautiful and historic apartment "San Bortolo". Everything was so perfect! The frescos and exposed brick are so amazing, we enjoyed the story. Also, whomever decorated this apartment has impeccable taste. The grocery store is close, and so many wonderful places to eat. We loved having the cafe downstairs where we could go in the morning for a cappuccino and in the afternoon for a snack and glass of wine. We will be back to beautiful Venice another time, and will definitely stay at one of your properties! We hope this one will be available. Thank you! Grazie!June 2015, The Meng Family (United States)
