About Sebastiano Zafalon

I'm a venetian that still leaves and works in Venice, with a wife and three kids.

Sebastiano Zafalon purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Sebastiano Zafalon chose Dorsoduro

Me and my wife lived in this apartment untill 2008, so we made it as we liked and everything has been recently renovated. It is in a central and residential area of Venice, Dorsoduro, where you can find all the shops for your needs, from the organic products to the baker, butcher, pharmacy, etc...

What makes this apartment unique

The view! from the three windows in the living room/kitchen you can enjoy the view of three canals passing by the apartment with all sorts of boats, private/gondolas with singer/working boats. You don't even need to go out, just by a bottle of cool Prosecco and enjoy Venice from you holiday home!

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

Well, I could not have said it better than the last reviewer who stayed in January.. we were there in February.. and everything is as described - only better!! Sebastiano was so helpful and quite happy to talk about Venice! We took all his advice.

I only wish his place was bigger so we could bring family for our next trip - there is no reason to stay anywhere else!!

Could not have been more perfect!

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish and from all angles this was the perfect way to experience Venice for our first time! The apartment is very close to the bus station so your arrival is simple (good to know when you have heavy luggage). Sebastiano was gracious, attentive and informative so we felt well taken care of (and we were happy his English is so good since we know no Italian) and the apartment shows the love and care he has put into it. Much has already been described on this page, but I just have to say...radiant floor heat - divine (for a January visit)!

The neighborhood is lovely - we bought gifts from the Il Grifone shop downstairs where they make the leather goods on-site, had a wonderful meal at the Osteria AE Cravate down the road, and read the morning english newspaper with a capaccino at the Hotel Papadapoli.

I contracted a cold and one day we just stayed in the apartment so I could rest and recover. It was really pleasant with the large windows looking out at incredible beauty, fast wifi, peace and quiet, comfortable accommodations. Couldn't have felt that way in a small hotel room. This is definitely the way to experience Venice, and we hope to come back soon.

Loved our Stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit to Venice and what made it so wonderful was our stay in this apartment. The location could not have been better. It was an easy walk from the train and bus station and was near vaporetto stops. The view over two canals was beautiful and the area was quiet at night. Restaurants were everywhere as was a small grocery store. The apartment was large and well appointed. The wifi worked great. We did not need AC but it was available if we did. If we are lucky to return to Venice we would definitely want to stay at this apartment again.

Look no further. This is the perfect location in Venice.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week at the end of July -August. This is THE perfect place to stay to explore Venice. The apartment is only 5 minutes walk from the bus stations from the airport - only 3 or 4 bridges with your suitcases. The apartment is spotlessly clean and newly refurbished. It is very quiet with the windows closed and the air conditioning took only minutes to cool the whole apartment and was also exceptionally quiet. Our host Sebastiano met us at the apartment and explained everything. He gave us a map with restaurant suggestions which we tried. This is gold for anyone who is new to a place and wants to find places away from the tourist area where locals eat. These restuarants were wonderful! Sebastiano also greeted us with local biscotti and a bottle of cold Prosecco! This is the best apartment we have rented in the world so far and very reasonably priced. No wonder people come back here year after year. Thank you Sebastiano for making our first trip to Venice such a perfect and memorable one. I hope we too can return one day.

We Returned

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, clean, light and well-equipped apartment in a super location. We could walk to The Frari, Santa Margharita and all of the neighborhood. The San Rocco Scuola is nearby, as is Santa Margherita square with its lovely spots to sit, have a coffee, lunch. Gelato at Mille Voglie (you can have a nice pannini before, at the next window). Zucca is a terrific place to eat as is the trattoria across the canal (Ponte Meglie I think). But what was wonderful for us -- we looked forward each night to coming home, sauteeing some fish and watching and hearing the life of the canals right in front of us. The apartment is lovely, very light, sleek, with a very functional well-equipped kitchen and the biggest fridge in Europe. It is very quiet when you close the windows too. Then what we all fear -- a medical emergency in a foreign country. I woke up with toothache tht would not stop. We tod Sebastiano and he made an appointment with his own dentist for me. i had to have an extraction and this kind, lovely man was with us every step of the way, including accompanying us to the pharmacia. Bravo Sebastiano. We will be back for another month next year and this time hope there is no other "emergency." Your kindness is exquisite and so appreciated by us. Ciao a dopo.

Great Apartment, View & Location

  • 5 of 5

Listed as a "BEAUTIFUL GAFFARO APARTMENT IN DORSODURO WITH CANAL VIEW" accurately describes what is offered. My wife & I had a wonderful 4 day visit to Venice (March 2014) and coming back to this apartment after a long day was definitely a highlight. Located in the quieter part of Venice and close to the train & bus stops helped in our decision to rent this property. Sebastiano met us at the time agreed to and offered excellent advice. As other reviewers have noted the apartment is modern, was very clean and also very secure.
