Guestbook comments from the owner
Arguably, Dorsoduro is the best place to live when in Venice. It is easy to reach from the mainland and anywhere else, and it is easy to find for newcomers. You will have no fear of claustrophobia – the open sea, i.e. the Giudecca canal, is close, and yet nothing is far away. Much better than San Marco, in fact.



Helen´s apartment is small, but extremely well planned (by Mara, the neighbour as it is, who is also an architect). The real wonder is the terrace on the roof, which enables you to admire the city from above, the innumerable churches (and church bells!) and ships and gondolas passing by.



The Zattere prospect is close, with a wide selection of restaurants, of which especially the Riviera is to be recommended. There is even a supermarket if you should need such a one.

Wish we could have stayed longer....

  • 5 of 5
There simply aren't enough positive adjectives in the world to describe this apartment! Lovely, charming, beautiful, comfortable, clean, bright, and perfect are a good start.

We stayed for three nights and June and really wish we had stayed longer. The location was in a quiet area of Venice, very close to a grocery store and restaurants. The water taxi stop is just steps away but we walked everywhere. San Marco is about a 20 minute walk and easy to find especially if you pick up a map. The nearby grocery store was well stocked and the produce we purchased there was fresh and delicious.

The rooftop terrace was a delight. We happened to be up there at noon and it seemed that all the bells in the city were ringing at the same time!

The kitchen is spacious enough to prepare meals and had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable but bring a sleep mask if light bothers you....you need to keep the bedroom door open if you are using the air conditioner and the morning sun is nice and bright. There are shutters on most of the windows but the light at the top of the stairs to the terrace is a glass door.

There is a little book in the apartment full of helpful information. My husband was sick when we arrived and we were very grateful to find that there was a pharmacy nearby.

The stairs to the apartment ended up not being as much of a challenge as we feared. They are narrow but were not a problem. If possible, bring only your carry-on luggage. We visited four cities in Italy and every single time we saw someone struggling with a big bag, we were reminded of how grateful were to have packed light.

To get to the apartment, we took a land taxi which dropped us off less than a 10 minute walk to the front door.

Our hostess answered emails promptly and helped us with any questions we had. The wonderful lady who met us when we arrived was a delight and showed us around the apartment even though it was pretty late when we got there!

As for Venice, we are in love! What a fantastic city. Be sure to plan some time to just wander. Around every corner, down every alley, there is something beautiful to see. Get advance "skip the line" tickets for St. Mark's. Once inside, pay the extra euros for the other areas, we felt it was worth it. We also got an advance ticket to the Doge's Palace but that was unnecessary. There wasn't a line when we arrived in the afternoon.

Hopefully, we'll be back in Venice and in this apartment again very soon!

Amazing apartment!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this wonderful apartment for 5 days. It is in a very quiet section of Venice, but close to everything. The apartment is well set up with everything you could need. The best part is the rooftop terrace. We had breakfast and evening wine up there daily. We will be back for sure!

Lovely apartment in peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in Venice several times before and this is the best apartment we have been to. It is exactly as the photos and beautifully clean, with good linen as well as a lovely roof terrace.

It is only a moment from the San Basilio vaporetto stop and the Billa supermarkket but completely peaceful, which was very relaxing for us. It is no more than a 10 minute walk to the Accademia bridge where alternative vaporetto routes are available. There is a lovely cafe selling excellent croissants a few minutes away from the apartment on the Fondamenta San Basilio which was open by 7.30 each morning, except Sunday. The Billa supermarket is open at 8.30 until after 10 pm everyday including Sunday.

The apartment is beautifully laid out to maximise the space. We were lucky enough to have excellent weather and had lunch on the terrace most days. There is a staircase up to the terrace with handrail 2/3 of the way but we soon got used to it. Once up there it is lovely with a great table and chairs, cushions etc. We had no need of the parasol but there is one if needed.

We had really excellent week and hope to return one day.

Dorsoduro holiday.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed for four days in this lovely apartment. It is very comfortable, cleverly designed and attractively furnished, and the situation could not have been more convenient, with vaporetto, post office and supermarket close by. The listing was accurate and informative, and Helen couldn't have been more helpful and efficient. We very much hope to return.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5
This is a fabulous apartment - bright and sunny - with the huge bonus of its own terrace where we enjoyed sipping prosecco and stunning views. The apartment is in a great location right by the San Basilio waterbus stop, but actually it is just as easy to walk everywhere and Helen and Jamie have provided a library of guidebooks to dip into. This part of Venice is peaceful and attractive - a haven from the crowds of St Mark's and the Rialto, but near enough to walk to a lot of the attractions. It is equipped to a very high standard and with the Billa supermarket just around the corner, buying food provisions couldn't have been easier!

Wonderfull Holidays!!!

  • 5 of 5
Flat 3 Dorsoduro 1475. That's the place to be. You'll feel more like a local than a visitor. In a wonderful top floor apartment with an altana that is surrounded by campaniles (you can see the top of the tower in Piazza San Marco!), you'll hear bells ringing and watch the oversize cruise ships coming and going along the Guidecca Canal. You're above the tree tops in the garden next door. Just off the fantastic Zattere with a supermarket and vaporetto stop just around the corner, you're where you need to be. It's very comfortable and homely. We didn't want to leave!

We've stayed in many parts of Venice over the years and if it's quiet (but not too quiet!) that you're after, this is the place. You can walk to Campo Santa Margherita without crossing
a bridge! Visit one of the really special churches in Venice, San Nicolo dei Mendicoli (restored by Venice in Peril in the 1970's and featured in the classic film Don't Look Now - and there's a DVD in the flat!) 10 minutes away. An even closer church, San Sebastiano, is full of paintings by Veronese. Then after all the walking and looking and riding (the vaporettos) you've got this lovely place to come home to!

Our apartment is located in the Dorsoduro area of Venice beside The Zattere. The nearest waterbus stop is San Basilio which is 1 minute walk away. Piazzale Roma (bus station) and Venice train station are 20 minutes walk or 15 minutes by the No. 2 waterbus. St Marks square is 20 minutes walk and the Accademia is only 10 minutes with the Peggy Gugenheim just close by as well. There are many restaurants nearby along the Zattere, our favourite being the Ristorante Riviera is just 1 minute outside the flat. 10 minutes walk is the lively Campo Santa Margherita where there are many restaurants and bars as well as daily fruit and vegetable stalls and some excellent fish stalls. Conveniently there is an excellent and well stocked supermarket called Billa just 1 minute walk away. Beside the supermarket there is a post office and also cash machine.
