Overview

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.

Perfect Venice apartment for two for a week in March

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was just as lovely as we hoped and we found all the information supplied by the owner so useful. The apartment was very well equipped and quick to warm up on cold March days. It was an incredibly quiet area to live in but lots of character and great shops/bars nearby.

Comfortable Stay

  • 4 of 5

Once the heating was dealt with, which was done extremely quickly, myself, husband, son and his partner thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay. Very authentic Venetian apartment with gondolas passing the windows. Very quiet area within easy walking distance to local waterbus stop at San Basilio and supermarket. Don't forget to explore the local area by foot. A very enjoyable trip all round.

It's gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

We went to Venice with the whole family (5 people) in January and had a really great time! We were extremely lucky with the weather so we could enjoy café in the sun. And we were very lucky finding this neat and perfectly suiting apartment! Equipped with 3 separate bedrooms, everything needed in the kitchen and a very cosy furniture we loved coming home every day. It is very quiet in the night, has the nicest restaurants around we found – and garbage collectors ring the doorbell to get your trash for you! Unbelievable service!

We can highly recommend this place for up to 6 people!

The apartment is lovely - well supplied and quiet - fantastic retreat from the noise of the world...

  • 5 of 5

On the edge of a canal, and close to the heart of Venice, our family loved David’s apartment. We found great trattoria in the neighborhood, and had the best time leading each other astray. We felt like we were alone in the city over the holidays, and often found ourselves the only people on the street. We would recommend this to families, or small groups visiting Venice.

Immediately outside the apartment is the church of San Sebastiano, whose celebrated interior was the 24-year-long project of local artist Veronese. Close by you'll also find the Academia and Guggenheim galleries, the Frari, the Scuola Grande di San Rocco and the Scuola Grande dei Carmini. The famous Ca' Rezzonico (including its useful vaporetto and traghetto stops) on the Grand Canal is a 2 minute walk away. 20 minutes on foot will take you to both San Marco and the Rialto.
