About the property

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.

Authentically Venice

  • 5 of 5

Very cozy and comfortable for our group of 5. Not too far from your choice of two docks, this apartment is nestled down an alleyway right on a canal. We enjoyed watching the Gondolas go by our windows....aww Venice. Many restaurants and gelaterias close by, but very quite. The apartment was well stocked and I would recommend this place to anyone.

Lovely, vintage, comfortable, well stocked

  • 5 of 5

The only drawback was getting to the apartment...100 euro with 2 porters..DO NOT DO THAT! Take the line 1 water bus from Ferronovia...to Ca Rezzonico(spelling maybe wrong)... walk up the street past Barnaba Campo... stay on that street til the first Bridge... just before the bridge turn left... go down the hall and the apartment is at the end next to the canal!!! Wish I knew this before walking all over with 2 porters who seemed lost!! The apartment is great filled with books, mirrors, pillows, fans, umbrellas, dishes, spices, oils, a variety of coffee makers, blow dryers, curling iron, there is a washing machine, a dishwasher and comfortable beds. They provide 3 sets of keys... big help! The place is lovely, David has supplied so many interesting things inside... if Venice was not so beautiful--we could have easily stayed in the apartment and been happy!

Campo Margarita is a short walk for the morning market and several restaurants, it also has a few bars for night time fun. If you go the other way... over the bridge just past the entry hall you get to the outside large Canal and can easily catch the San Basilio water bus stop.... there is also a Conad Market there too for groceries. I would now happily return to this flat now I know how easy it is to get too. There are several ways... but the one I wrote about at first is the easiest!!! Enjoy! Grazie to David, Guilia and Irene.

We had a wonderful stay at this canal side apartment in a quiet lovely apt in Venice. The apartment was quiet and beyond charming. Perfectly set up for a family wth 3 kids. Loved our stay!

Antique furniture, pictures, mirrors and books put together in a very stylish way

  • 5 of 5

Well situated for art history destinations in Dorsoduro, yet quiet neighbourhood. David, the owner, very friendly, efficient and helpful. It is David's own holiday home with plenty of the items which make the apartment a home rather than simply a functional rental property.

Fantastic Venetian Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Six twenty-something women stayed in the apartment for a weekend (Fri-Mon) and can't rate it highly enough! The apartment is in a great location. It was easy to get to from the bus station where you arrive from the airport. The apartment was decorated just as the pictures. A really homey quirky place with everything you need. We especially enjoyed the hifi speaker system which you can just plug a phone/iPad into and get Spotify through the wifi. The Kitchen and Bathroom are both fairly modern and the rest of the house is more traditionally decorated. It's a really quiet neighbourhood, you can just hear church bells and the hum of boats as they pass by. The apartment is close to water bus stops and we got the boat across to the Sky Bar at the Hilton one night which is a 10min walk around the corner. Lots of really nice restaurants and bars nearby which are much cheaper than the more touristy St Marc's Sq. There's towels and hairdryers there, extra pilllows and blankets if you're cold - although the heating system seems great and always hot water. It's a really great apartment with lots of room and we never felt cramped even though there was 6 adults. Have told lots of people about it already and will hopefully be back one day! Thanks David!

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.
