Flat Venice Greci View
Flat Greci ViewGreci View is a charming, bright, and spacious flat (130 sq. M), with three bedrooms which will accommodate up to five people. It is one of our favourite flats in Venice.
You will enjoy the breath-taking views of San Giorgio Maggiore Island, her famous Campanile as well as the bridges of Pietà dei Greci.
You will also have a unique view of the famous San Giorgio dei Greci’s leaning bell tower and the church’s domed cupola.
This large and bright flat has many comforts to guarantee a wonderful holiday in Venice.
It is especially well decorated and furnished. It is located in a distinctive area in the Castello that remains truly Venetian.
Additionally, there are several quality food shops nearby.
Lastly, a Wi-Fi Internet connexion is available throughout the flat.
The flat is on the fourth floor (no lift, 72 steps) a factor that is more than offset by the unique views of Venice that will enhance your stay.
The Hall and the First LoungeAn expansive L-shaped central hall leads to all the flat’s rooms.
In fact, the hall is a room by itself due to its large area (more than 30 sq. M) and its fine furniture.
A large skylight brings light into the hall, and its floor, as in old Venetian Palaces, is “Terrazzo alla Veneziana” (made with little pieces of coloured marble).
An antique table and padded chairs decorate the main area.
The central hall’s smallest part offers a comfortable nook, lighted by a window with a view of Venice’s roofs, the neighbourhood’s terraces and the church San Giorgio dei Greci’s Campanile and with its domed cupola.
A large antique bookcase stands next to the two-person sofa.
A corner wardrobe and dessert trolley, as well as an inlaid game table and two chairs, creates a very welcoming space.
Separate Toilet RoomA door opens at the end of this lounge with a water closet that counts as one of the bathrooms.
A little window lights the room that also offers a little sink.
Dining RoomA spacious room (37 sq. M) including on one side the dining room and on the other, a large lounge covers the entire length of the house facade and has a view of the canal.
The dining area, with the view on the Greci church’s campanile and the Greci Bridge, is furnished with two antique tables.
A round table occupies one corner and the other table, rectangular, stands in the middle of the beautiful dining room.
An antique sideboard is waiting for you, filled with quality tableware, above and beyond typical rental flat standards.
Six antique padded chairs and a pretty rattan chaise longue complete the furnishings.
The dining area floor is “Terrazzo alla Veneziana” (made with little pieces of coloured marble).
Three large windows (double-glazed), with nice views of Venice’s roofs, light the room. From here, you also have a wonderful view on the Greci Canal, along the San Zaccaria church ancient convent.
You even have a view of the Basilica San Giovanni and Paolo’s dome, as the Greci Bridge.
And, of course, the outstanding view of San Giorgio dei Greci’s dome and Campanile.
All this in a single flat, you cannot top that!
The Big LoungeA lounge opens in front of the dining area.
That room is also quite pleasant and bright with its three big windows (double-glazed) and a beautiful oak chevron-patterned hardwood floor.
A large and comfortable L shaped sectional sofa-bed with plenty of scatter cushions waiting for you.
A lovely antique cupboard with a collection of old glasses, stands in front of the sofa.

On your left, you can see the facade of the large Cappello Memmo Palace from the 15th century.
On your right, the San Zaccaria church’s ancient convent and, on top of all that, the Pietà Bridge and the Greci Canal.

A large table, surrounded by six chairs, will give you room to have a leisurely breakfast, or even your meals. But for that, the adjacent dining room is better!
The big and old chimney hood has been transformed into a storage place, which gives a unique character to this kitchen.
Many attractive decorations, including an antique clock, give this room a lot of charm.

The Location in Venice – MapGreci View flat is very well located in Venice, in the district of Castello, between the big and beautiful Campo (place) of the Bragora and Saint-Mark’s Square.
This part of the Castello in Venice has also remained authentically Venetian as well as charming and romantic.
ShoppingAs the majority of the people living here are resident Venetians, you will have no problem food shopping, including excellent fresh pasta from the Salizada dei Greci, only a two-minute walk from the flat, where you will be able to buy, in our opinion, the best ravioli in Venice.
And there are also several gifts shops nearby!
