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.

Delightful stay in cosy and charming apartment

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at David's apartment. It was located in a quiet and charming area of Venice, close enough to shops and places to eat out but far enough from the crowds and peaceful at night. The apartment was clean, spacious and well set up with looks of cooking equipment. David was very helpful prior to our stay and had lots of tips of places to see, shop, eat and drink. Easy to access from Marco Polo airport with only a 5 min walk from the nearest vaparetto stop. Would highly recommend and love to return someday soon!

Clean, well appointed, and authentic.

  • 4 of 5

We loved our first trip to Venice. This apartment immediately immersed us in the Venitian culture., no hotel could have done that. It was close to the sights, yet quiet enough for resting. Was perfect for our family of 5. Julia, our greeter was awesome, and so patient with us as we were later getting there because of traffic. We would definitely stay again, and will highly recommend it.

Absolutely beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely traditional apartment with plenty of space for my wife and I plus 3 children. No hesitation in recommending both the location and this apartment as a base to explore Venice.

Probably the best city break we've ever done. Thanks!

Great apartment in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely weekend in this spacious apartment situated on a quiet canal but a short walk away from the hustle and bustle of the major sights. It was perfect to come back to after a long day visiting the wonderful sights of Venice and have a glass of wine sitting by the peaceful canal. The apartment is traditionally furnished which we loved but with a modern bathroom very clean, plenty of hot water and lots of towels. We immediately felt at home.The owner provided us with his personal recommendations for the sights, restaurants, supermarkets and all the information we needed to get from the airport. We didn`t need a guidebook. We will definitely be back but for a longer stay next time.

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.

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.
