Enjoying breathtaking views from its two amazing terraces



Updated: 22-Oct-2016
Sleeps 6, 2 double beds, 2 single beds

A terrific penthouse perfect for six, up 'in the gods' of the impressive 15th Century Gothic 'Palazzo Loredan Dell’ Ambasciatore' on the Grand Canal in the Dorsoduro area of the city. Enjoying breathtaking views from its two amazing terraces and superbly located between the Accademia Bridge/ Academy of Fine Arts and the Ca’ Rezzonico Museum of 18th Century Art/ vaporetto stop, close to Campo San Barnaba and opposite Francois Pinault's Palazzo Grassi Museum of Modern Art.

Sitting exclusively in splendid isolation on the fifth floor of one of the finest palazzi in Venice (birthplace of two ancient Doges of Venice - Leonardo Loredan (1501-21) and Francesco Loredan (1752-62)) and benefitting from plenty of light and 'airiness' as a result, Ca' Cerchieri Terrace offers private water access for speedy, stylish and fuss-free arrivals by private water taxi and is reached by lift taken to the third floor, leaving one flight of stairs to ascend on foot.

In addition to a heavy sprinkling of fine period furnishings and quietly sophisticated touches, the apartment maintains an attractively casual, laid-back and unpretentious quality - ideal for settling in and feeling 'at one' with your fabulously Venetian and very aristocratic surroundings from the moment you arrive, while rich wooden flooring and independent air-conditioning throughout, satellite TV, wireless internet connection and a small laundry room with washing machine ensure that all the comforts and conveniences of modern living are at your fingertips for the duration of your stay.

There's an elegant living room with comfy seating and wide French windows opening onto a superb terrace (with seating space for six) offering wonderful panoramic vistas over seemingly endless rooftops and bell-towers, a separate dining area seating eight and a fully-equipped kitchen/ breakfast room with dapple-grey granite work surfaces, Grand Canal views and all the appliances one could possibly wish for, including a large fridge with icemaker, microwave and numerous coffee-makers to name just a few.

There are three stylish bedrooms - a beautiful master with a double bed and French windows opening onto a private terrace with mesmerising Grand Canal views to swoon over (impossibly romantic!) and its own en suite bathroom with bathtub, a second double bedroom with double bed enjoying views towards the Accademia Bridge and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection (again with an en suite bathroom with bathtub), a third bedroom with twin beds (which can be made into a double - please ask when booking) and an en suite bathroom with bathtub and shower. A fourth 'hallway' bathroom with w.c. and shower completes the accommodation.

Guestbook comments from the manager

So many times the rental properties are advertised as more than they really are. Views on Venice descriptions of Ca' Cerchieri Terrace did not do the apartment justice. The apartment exceeded expectations in every way. It was the perfect place for our extended family to really enjoy everything Venice has to offer for our two week stay. In particular, Rachele was an exceptional property manager. She was prompt, helpful and courteous in all of her interactions with us. She made our visit truly fabulous. We all would turn to Views on Venice for our next trip to Venice.

The apartment was even better than the description, amazing views on the four directions, great location in Dorsoduro close to the Academia bridge, beautiful palazzo with convenient water access and very well equipped (we counted 7 ac units). Will definitively come back to Venice but only with the VOV team.

Absolutely the most wonderful apartment and most gracious hosts ever. FANTASTIC!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The views from the apartment are breathtaking, right over the grand canal. The rooms are gorgeous, decorated impeccably. There was champagne, coffee, soaps , lotions, conditioners etc. and bathrooms were large and showers hot and strong. Beds firm. Best of all, Rachel, who welcomed us and took care of everything, was available 24/7 to help with any detail at all, from arranging tickets , taxis, reservations, babysitting. etc. And there was full English TV including Disney channel for the kids. We've stayed at the Ritz , four seasons and all the posh hotels and villa rentals around the world. This was in the top five ever. Can't recommend it more strongly.

Ideal place to stay in Venice

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful apartment, really clean and comfortable. The management were extremely helpful when we were planning our visit before we arrived, providing detailed directions on how to reach the apartment and Rachele met us at the Vaporetto stop (about 2 minutes walk) to show us round, they have thought of virtually everything you might need (including Wellington boots if you happen to experience "aqua alta" while you are there!) and the views over Venice from the two terraces are absolutely amazing - the terrace off the master bedroom overlooks a particularly beautiful part of the Grand Canal.... The apartment is perfectly situated for visiting Venice, nearby to many good restaurants and shops in an area (Dorsoduro) which is lively but not touristy, a few minutes walk from the Accademia and the Guggenheim museum. We would highly recommend this apartment and hope to return one day when we come back to this beautiful city. Thank you to Rachele and everyone at Views on Venice.

Amazing Views and will definitely stay there again

  • 5 of 5

The views from the Master bedroom and living room and terraces were amazing. It was located in a good neighborhood. It was about 15-20 minute walk to St. Marks. The walk was very pleasant full of little shops and restaurants. We'll definitely stay there again.
