Since I'm on a roll with places we stayed, here's some additional pics from the 3 bedroom apt in the Santa Croce neighborhood of Venice  (p.s.  - if you're headed to Venice, definitely check out this apt, everything about it was perfect)   First up the master bedroom - although completely remodeled, the apt has retained the charm of these wood beamed ceilings.

You can see off to the left, one of the 2 bathrooms in the apt.

Hallway off the kitchen/living room area.

2nd bedroom with a pretty upholster bed.

A door led out to a lovely, private patio.

Notice how large the door hinges are - added to the luxe feel of the space.

Back down the hallway by the master is the third bedroom.

The view from one of the flanking windows on either side of the front door. The apt is right on a charming, small canal - you could pretty much reach out and touch the passing gondolas from the living room windows.
