Vacation rentals in Italy (villas, farms, estates, agriturismo, apartments)
Review 3770: Corte Tiepolo, Tiepolo
apartments in San Polo, Venice
September 2008, 3 nights
We expected to be staying in another apartment. when Marco directed us through the door at the far side of the court, I was sure something was up. I kept thinking we are too close to the water for this to be right.
But it turns out they had substituted the Tiepolo (1bed/1bath) with two large windows out on the grand canal for the Valier (see other review). Great view! It's really unbelievable. A room in a hotel like this would cost close to a thousand/night. (OK so you have an elevator and room service and a fancy name)
Nice modern bathroom. Photos on web accurate. Great location, very quiet. close to traghetto to San Marco (50 cents!), adjacent to San Toma Vaporetto stop great romantic/honeymoon place! This place might seem like it would be too loud (vaporettos/barges etc.) but it isn't. Will go here again!
Coffee and groceries were very close. Within 200 meters everything you need.
Everything in good shape. Yes the building is historic but I'm not sure. Look on their website.
No outside area but you're on the Grand canal!
The furniture very nice, comfortable. The bed was a little too soft.
The bed/bath were modern. This place is for two people.
We did not cook anything except my wife 's tea. There was adequate cooking facilities and things of good quality to cook with though.
Problems or Bonuses
We were surprised to have the Grand Canal right there, I mean right there!
