Unbelievably friendly and warm staff who gladly gave expert travel advice and recommendations that only a Roman would normally be privy to. - Loic Diels
I LOVE this website and will gladly recommend it to anyone headed this way. Nothing disappointed us! - Mary-Iris Taylor
I have been using Cross-Pollinate for about 10 years now. The service is consistently great and I can always find just the kind of apartment we like, at the right price. - Hirani Himona
A really great idea - with a network of hand picked little rooms/guesthouses. If only we could have this in more city destinations! - Zoe Buck
I love Cross-Pollinate and every time we go to a new city I look to see whether they have some accommodations over there. - Arantza Aldea
The two places I have stayed at from Cross-Pollinate have been among the best across Europe. Highly recommended. - Nicholas Burn
Thanks a lot to Cross-Pollinate for the opportunity to experience a city as an insider! We really enjoyed our stay in Rome and Venice and look forward to more. - Tatiana Marchenko
Cross-Pollinate was very helpful when the owner of the B&B wanted to charge us for the baby under 2 y o. It would have been difficult without them since the owners did not speak any english. - Yulia Pichugina
This was our only stay with a C-P apartment and we were very pleased with the entire process. Will look to use them again on our next Europe trip! - Anthony Giglio
Great web site and quick response from the team a CP made the whole experience easy and hassle free. I have already recommended CP to quite of few of my airline industry colleagues and I'm sure they will make use of their excellent service. - Shane Pickles
Cross-Pollinate was extremely helpful! They found us a place to stay in our price range when many other places of business couldn't help us. - Sarah Seminutin
Cross-Pollinate was very easy to use, and it is so much better to stay in places like these than big corporate hotels; you get a much better feel for the place. - Kaspar Deane
Very straight forward. Well done. Definitely would use it again. Love these type of alternatives to hotels! - John White
Cross-Pollinate was fantastic and easy to use. We used Cross-Pollinate to book a room in Florence (the second leg of our trip), which was everything I thought it would be. We have recommended Cross-Pollinate to our friends. - Barbara Carlin
Cross-Pollinate are great - the descriptions are accurate and they are very responsive to questions. - Dominique Bayne
Cross Pollinate was just the best. I had tried a couple of places before coming upon them. As soon as I sent the first email I stopped looking for any more websites. I just wish they expanded to every city in Europe. Their knowledge, helpfulness, etc. was second to none. - Caroline Collis
Casseleria Three
Casseleria Three is a charming one-bedroom apartment situated in the area between Saint Mark's square and the beautiful church of Santa Maria Formosa. The area is packed with shops, restaurants, ice cream places, and cafes. It's the typical Venice you'd expect, with narrow streets and busy life and bridges all around. The street of the apartment, Calle Casseleria, is not a 'through' streets (no tourist hordes and has a quiet courtyard out front (not for sitting, just for looking!).

There's Campo Santa Maria Formosa just a few steps away, a very large and ample square where you can sit and sip a drink in one of the cafes and people-watch.

A great plus: the square is in full sunlight basically all day from morning to evening. I could never pass by here often enough on my walks through the center.

A large supermarket (large by Venetian standards!) is just a few steps away, and you'll find bakeries and fruit stands and anything you'll need right there.

The apartment is about 50 square meters and consist of a double bedroom, a dining room (there's a door connecting the two rooms), a kitchen and a bathroom. Being on the second floor, the bedroom and living room get a good amount of light during the day.

Nina and Francesco, the owners, are a young and very pleasant couple who live close by and take great care of everything, personally meeting their guests upon arrival and making sure you have everything you'll need for your stay.
