Spacious canal-side apartment in the heart of Venice



Updated: 20-Oct-2016
Luxury self-catering apartment with wifi in the Dorsoduro

A south-facing 100 sq/mtrs canal side apartment on the Dorsoduro, which is one of the quietest and most sought-after areas of Venice. The apartment lies 2 minutes from the delightful Zattere and 1 minute from charming Campo Santa Margherita. It is close to all the major sights, but away from the main tourist traps, making a stay here restful even in the busiest months. The whole interior has recently been restored (2007). Rooms are bright and spacious and most have moulded plaster ceilings with old Murano chandeliers; floors are of travertine limestone, carrara marble or ceramic sandstone. 2 of the 3 bedrooms look out over the canal and the living room has a very large comfortable sofa bed. The apartment has a separate well-equipped kitchen. Other features include wi-fi internet, flat-screen TV, DVD player and stereo, film library and a comprehensive selection of Venetian-themed books. The apartment is beautifully furnished throughout with a mixture of contemporary and antique styles.

Quiet, central location, good amenities, great to see gondolas outside your window.

  • 4 of 5

All main sites walkable, close to various water bus stops. Lovely reasonable restaurants at Zattere, to watch the sunset. Owner very helpful and lots of useful information in the apartment.

Our family had a wonderful time in Venice. David, your apartment is exactly what we needed! Quiet, conveniently situated and we loved sitting next to the canal. Thank you

Amazing Venice Flat

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week with our family of 6 (4 kids age 10-18). The property was great. It sits right on the canal and you can watch gondolas go by regularly. It is also very quiet and private. The flat was clean, comfortable, and every thing was in working order. David has stocked it with everything you might need down to post cards and spare light bulbs. He has a dvd collection that was great for our kids. There are excellent restaurants just a few steps away and a Conad grocery store just a 5 minute walk away. We liked to go to the Rialto fish market in the morning to get fish to cook for supper. The kitchen was very functional and had many spices. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it.

Excellent apartment and location!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment in a perfect, quiet part of Venice. Location is non-touristy and close to lots of restaurants and shopping. A canal runs right outside the apartment - we enjoyed sitting in the courtyard and watching gondolas go by. Courtyard is very private and quiet. One suggestion is to update the wifi router (we had to reset the wifi several times). Overall, a great apartment that we highly recommend!

Character apartment in lovely part of Venice

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just as we hoped it would be. On a previous trip we had decided this was the best area to stay for us. It was quiet and in an area where locals lived but within easy reach of the centre. For me, one of the great things about Venice is how easy it to leave the crowds behind. It's all lovely so why shuffle along with the crowds between the Rialto bridge and St Marks? It is a truly amazing place, no cars, not even any bikes, just people and boats (and the odd sack trolley). Having 3 rooms with windows onto the canal was a treat, one night we had a singing gondola man go by. The bedrooms are comfortable and the bathroom good also. My wife likes to cook and there was plenty of all the right equipment for the job and lots of cook books to inspire. Talking of books, the apartment is full of them, I read lots on Venetian history. The stereo is the best I've encountered on similar holidays and hooks up to your ipod. This time we explored further afield to some outlying island. We'll be back for a third week in a few years to explore more of the art work that we didn't get time to see. Thanks David for everything. PS The apartment is also good value.

very good indeed

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. It has the best equipped kitchen in a rented flat that I've ever come across. There were even cloth shopping bags in the cupboard over the big fridge. 2 decent sized bedrooms, reasonably comfortable beds, lots of pillows and covers. Great sofa too. Very clean everywhere (in fact we met the cleaner as we left, a serious chap). But the best thing about this flat is it's location. Very good area, away from the main tourist places but with easy access to everywhere. Around the corner from restaurants and shops, 2 squares to drink coffee in and people watch, supermarket 5-10 minutes away and vaporetto stop. We were met at the vaporetto by a nice young man who spoke excellent English and who explained everything about the flat room by room. There was also a fantastic library of books on the history of Venice and many guide books.
