Reserve Your Ringside Seat for a Bird’s Eye View on Venice…
Presenting one of the most iconic vistas in the entire Serenissima, to be enjoyed from the calm and privacy of your place above the crowds
Occupying a fabulous spot right above the buzzing Riva Degli Schiavoni waterfront between St. Mark’s Square and the Arsenale/Biennale pavilions in the district of Castello, and sharing the long, wide and often sunny promenade with a host of well-known Venice hotels, the newly introduced Ca’ Del Santo sleeps four in comfort on the 3rd (top) floor reached by lift.
Moments from the magnificent Church of La Pietà and, for Venice aficionados and foodies, literally steps away from the highly acclaimed Ristorante Al Covo, the apartment is spacious, contemporary and simplicity itself.
Warm cosy wood sets the scene, while accommodation comprises an attractive sitting room with plenty of seating, a desk area, air-conditioning and glazed doors opening on to the fabulous south-facing furnished terrace; a dining room seating six leading to a compact yet well-equipped kitchen; a simple double bedroom with built-in wardrobes and a French-size bed, and a roomy second bedroom with 2 singles.
The shower room sits just off the sitting room, while the bathroom* next to the double bedroom is decked out entirely in wood and has a small spa bathtub.
A washing machine is also available for added convenience.
*A point on privacy - please bear in mind that this bathroom is only accessible via the double bedroom

About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the manager
Ca' Del Santo was everything we hoped it would be and more! The four nights we spent there were absolutely wonderful. The location made accessing all of the major sites easy, and the lift was a welcome luxury after a long day of exploring. The beds were comfortable and the apartment was perfectly sized for the three of us - but would easily accommodate a family of four. The kitchen was well stocked and after a quick trip to the market, we settled in and enjoyed cooking a few meals together. The best part of the apartment, though, is the private terrace. The views are simply breathtaking! It was the perfect place to enjoy coffee in the morning and unwind with a glass of wine at night. The only slight hiccups we experienced were a tiny error in where our water taxi driver dropped us off. However it was but a few minutes wait before Daniella rang, determined where we were and escorted us to the apartment. Her service in checking us in was phenomenal! She went over everything - ensuring that we knew how to operate all of the appliances and provided fantastic recommendations, tailored to the age ranges of my older teenage sons. The other item was a small miscommunication at checkout, but again - it was quickly remedied and presented no significant inconvenience. Everyone on staff with Views on Venice is exceedingly kind and accommodating. The service provided is unparalleled. There is no one else I would ever use nor recommend! This is our second time using the company and we will definitely be back. You offer a personal touch that is special and I can not thank you enough for all that you did to ensure an unforgettable trip for me and my sons! Sincerely,

The property surpassed our expectations - it must have one of the best views in Venice !! It was centrally located, near the water-bus station and was fantastic for people watching on the streets below. The bedrooms were well appointed with ample storage and the apartment had clean, modern décor. It was fantastic, can't wait to stay here again !!! The VoV team were superb, meeting us promptly, as arranged and giving us ample information for our stay.
A very nice, clean and modern apartment, a bit small for 4 people but as we were only two it worked out well. The terrace is a fantastic place to watch the world go by. Location is just far enough from the crowds, but still close enough to be walking distance to everything Venice has to offer. Supermarket and smaller grocery shopping is very close, once you figure out the route. My only complaint would be the wifi is weak in the front of the apartment and doesn't reach the terrace. We will beback!
Very comfortable and well equipped apartment in a great location with a truly spectacular view
Comfortable, Spacious, Well-equipped Apartment in a Fabulous Location
The title summarises the apartment concisely. It has two bedrooms, a bathroom, a shower room, kitchen area, dining area, living room and terrace with table and chairs - all comfortable, well equipped and spacious. The apartment sleeps four and offers a luxurious amount of living space for that number and is furnished so as to be comfortable too. Its crowning glory is the terrace reached through glazed doors in the living room. This terrace is also equipped so that it can be enjoyed with a good table and plenty of chairs and there is much to enjoy. The terrace has unobstructed views sweeping over San Giorgio Maggiore and Riva degli Schiavoni which is truly one of the great views of Venice and hard to imagine a better one. The apartment is also located near the Arsenale, one of the loveliest parts of Venice, and close too to the main visitor attractions of St Mark's Square and the Grand Canal.
On a more mundane level the apartment is clean, fresh and very well presented with ample furniture and equipment for more than the four people it sleeps. This gives a luxurious feel to the place. It is on the 4th floor of the building reached by a discreet door in one of the quiet calle just off Riva deli Schiavoni and there is a small but welcome lift up to it. It is furnished as you would your own holiday apartment, with equipment that works (including a kettle - important for British visitors but often missing), comfortable and welcoming furniture, a big collection of CDs, books in various languages and interesting pictures and objets that make it all more personal and human. There is very efficient heating too, welcome on colder days.
Rather like Mary Poppins, it is Practically Perfect In Every Way
Great location, location, location. Comfy and super clean.
The property was on waterfront which made it easy to get to the apartment with your luggage. Building has elevator and is 2 minure walk to St. Mark's Square. Perfect view. Every convenience, well furnished, and every convenience. We want to go back.
Das Appartement ist sehr schön. Es ist alles vorhanden was man braucht.
Man darf nur nicht vergessen dass die Zimmer klein sind, wie es ja üblich ist.
Wir waren sehr zufrieden und das Highlight dieser Wohnung ist die Dachterrasse. Ein Ausblick man möchte eigentlich nicht mehr zurück.
Activity and Interests
A simply styled apartment with an incredible view!
Gaze across the boat-traversed waters of the Bacino di San Marco, taking in a jaw-dropping outlook that stretches all the way from leafy Giardini and the Lido to the east, across to the domes of Santa Maria Della Salute and St. Mark’s Campanile to the west, and the islands of San Giorgio Maggiore and Giudecca to the fore.
Within walking distance of all the world-famous sights of St. Mark’s Square and the San Marco district or, in fascinating contrast, to the beguilingly sleepy backwaters of Castello with its traditional neighbourhood vibe.
A super base to pop back to for a break during the day, and only moments and one bridge away from the vaporetto (water bus) stop at Arsenale for easy travel around the city and to the Lido.
Also handy for the Alilaguna boat stop connecting Arsenale with Venice’s Marco Polo Airport.
