BLISSFUL TWO-BEDROOM WITH PRIVATE CANALSIDE COURTYARD IN SOUGHT-AFTER DORSODURO

Dorsoduro Apartment Rental Photos and Description

a charming and splendid retreat with fully outfitted kitchen & bath

Imagine yourself amidst picturesque canals and charming campielli in the popular sestriere of Dorsoduro, a picture perfect place nestled away from the tourist crowds yet minutes from the major sites. Recently renovated and beautifully adorned, Ca' Venexiana is a treasure box in this treasured city, offering an unforgettable setting in which to experience the magic of La Serenissima.

Decorated to a high standard and filled with personal touches both inside and out, we believe you will find everything you could want for a comfortable stay. Outside, our private garden courtyard peers onto the crossing of two peaceful canals, while inside you will find a splendid retreat-sumptuously decorated-where you can truly live la vita di Venezia, an experience no hotel can offer. Within minutes of our doorstep, you will find the popular and enjoyable Campo San Margherita, Campo San Barnaba, and the Zattere, all perfect and unique spots for basking in the Venetian atmosphere.

At Ca' Venexiana you will also find the 'little things' most easily overlooked when traveling­electrical adapters, a personal computer for guests' use, umbrellas, guidebooks, maps, and even rainboots! We keep a selection of excellent cookbooks on hand, as well as seasonal herbs growing on our canalside courtyard. We strongly suggest visiting the local markets (daily fish, fruit and vegetable markets are located within two minutes of our door!) While our fully-equipped kitchen has every modern convenience, ready for you to try your hand at some authentic Italian dishes.

We look forward to sharing our home, our neighborhood, and our beautiful city...with you.

The property also has its own boat mooring (9 m.)

Visit our website for full details.

NORTHEAST ITALY/VENETO REGION: Venice, the queen of the Adriatic, has been attracting visitors for centuries for good reason. Museums, artwork, history, churches, hospitality...Piazza San Marco, the Bridge of Sighs, Rialto, palazzos on the Grand Canal...she is a treasure box waiting to be explored. From Venice, you can easily venture outward to her neighboring islands (Lido, Murano, Burano, Torchello...) and the northeastern mainland of Italy which offers such jewels as Padova and Verona. Ferry service is available for neighbouring Croatia and the Istrian coast.

Ca' Venexiana is located in sestiere Dorsoduro, long preferred by artists and writers alike for its peace, beauty, and inspiration. Amenities are all very close by. A fine selection of open-air markets and groceries can be found moments from our doorstep, while numerous restaurants, bars, and cafes (as well as the best gelaterias in Venice) are ready to welcome you.

ARRIVING IN VENICE: by airplane into Venice Marco Polo or Treviso airports. By train into Venezia Santa Lucia station. Arrival by car or bus terminates at Piazzale Roma (or train to Venice Santa Lucia)-both are a 15 minute walk to the apartment. Or, you can take the vaporetto from Piazzale Roma or Ferovia to either the San Basilio, Zattere, or Ca' Rezzonico stops. All three stops are within 5 minutes walk of Ca' Venexiana.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved Ca'Venexiana and thought it was the perfect location! We wanted something away from the crowds, yet convenient and comfortable. Your home is lovely! The way you've decorated it and the fact that it doesn't want for anything makes it a wonderful home away from home.

Congratulations on your perfect jewel in Venice!

AN UNBEATABLE APARTMENT!

  • 5 of 5
This is the type of apartment that makes you write a review to tell the world how nice it is.
I have stayed in many apartments across Europe, and this type of apartment is really the future: the hotels will be a thing of the past !
The amenities of the apartment are unbelievable. We travelled with children, and they even found a gamecube to play , lots of Tv channels, internet for us!
The information was incredible : books, guides, a book with all the apartment information...
there were umbrellas, hats, and even something to cover my shoulders in churches!!!
I hate it when I arrive at one apartment and there is no cleaning stuff. Here you find everything: detergent, dishwasher tablets, bin bags... you don't have that feeling that you have to spend a fortune in the supermarket to be confortable (as we had to do in our previous holiday home in Tuscany).
The apartment also has all the basics for cooking : olive oil, vinegar, salt spices, coffee, tea, sugar,.
For me there are 2 types of apartments: the very basic ones and the ones where you feel you have borrowed someone else's home. This is how you feel at Ca Venexiana, at home.
I must also said that it has been tatesfully decorated to the last detail. Even the table lamps had amercian sockets, this means that someone who is capable of crossing the Atlantic with lamps to decorate is putting loads of attention to the last detail, or at least that was my conclusion!
In fact I must say the the photos of the advert are the worst part of it, as the reality is far better.
The views to the canal were amazing, just sitting outside having a coffee feels a real venetian experience.
The location is also very convenient. You are close to atractions but not in the middle of the tourist center. It is a pleasure to walk along the streets of Dorsoduro. We really enjoyed Venice and the city impressed us very much.
There was a waterbus stop, a supermarket, restaurants and shops very near.
Congratulations for the great job done in this apartment!

STUNNING!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed 2 weeks and wanted for nothing! This apartment on the ground floor is amazing and could not be more beautiful. ALL the conveniences worked well and we only ventured for daily food supplies. ALL the best restaurants and transportation and sights are short walks away. The owners are by far the best and most attentive I have met in multiple visits to Venice. Unbelievable how private, peaceful, quiet and visually beautiful this apartment is with windows and doors at the corner of two small waterways where gondolas glide by every so often. We made sure to reserve for next year before placing this review!

VERY CHARMING APARTMENT IN VENETIAN STYLE

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is very well located and very easy to reach from both nearest water bus stops. We were a family of four and we had enough space for everyone. Kitchen is very well equipped. We used it a bit for our New Year preparations. Internal private patio is very charming. As it was December we didn’t spent a lot of time there, but it gave us some ideas for interesting photos. There are also several good trattorias close to the apartment which is also a plus. Just check the tripadvisor filtering Dorsoduro and you’ll find them at the top of the list. The owner is very accurate and prompt in communications which makes the preparations comfortable.

GREAT MEMORIES

  • 5 of 5
Our family's trip (couple and two teens; 14 and 11) to Venice was made even more memorable with our stay in this apartment. Jackie's interactive map was very helpful during our pre-trip planning (and stay) . Her arrangements for the meet and greet were seamless allowing for a stress-free arrival from the airport through the confusing streets/canals of Venice. The recently renovated kitchen, bathroom, and apartment decor were great. Great beds, dvd player, and computer added to our comfort. The quieter neighbourhood was exactly the feel were were looking for; minutes to Campo Santa Margherita and Campo San Barnaba gave access to everything from pharmacies, cafes to great restaurants. Nearby food shopping and vaporetto stops added to the comforts. With the gondola route outside the apartment, we were swayed from all the "do not do it" comments to doing a quiet neighbourhood (from Campo San Barnaba) boat ride. Make sure to do the Secret Itineraries Tour at the Doje's Palace (book in advance) for a great experience.

PERFECTION IN VENEZIA, A SPECTACULAR APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
From the reservation process to our arrival in Venice, our expectations were indeed very high. What we found and experienced vastly exceeded those expectations... Superbly located, unbelievably furnished and decorated, Ca' Venexiana helped make our visit to Venice one of our most cherished of recent memories. Words cannot capture the beauty and location, with its very own dock onto a picturesque canal. We traveled with our sixteen year-old son and the three of us had the time of our lives cooking and relaxing in the apartment after experiencing the treasure that is Venice. We truly felt "at home" at Ca' Venexiana and could not possibly recommend it any higher than we do. Thank you to Jackie for sharing her gem with us - we'd love to return some day.

QUIET LOCATION ON A CANAL

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful apartment in a nice quiet area but with its own canal side courtyard. This is perfect for a small family or like us-two couples traveling together. We can't say enough about how fantastic it is --Jackie is great and gives you a lot of information before even getting there. She has taken great care in making sure everything you need is in the apartment. The bedrooms are nice size and comfortable and the kitchen is great --we cooked at least once a day and enjoyed opening the windows to enjoy the fresh air --we ate outside on the courtyard area and it is great to sit there and watch the gondolas go by --the location is great because you are away from the crowds but close to everything you need and it is a short walk to get to the vaporetto stops. Good for someone who can't walk a lot of step since it is on the first floor.
We look forward to staying again on our next trip which hopefully will be soon --Venice is a great place to enjoy after the crowds leave -we can't recommend this apartment enough. Thank you Jackie for sharing such a wonderful place to stay!!

Ca' Venexiana is very well located for visiting this beautiful city, . Vaporetto stops San Basilio and Ca' Rezzonico are each a few minutes walk from the apartment; Zattere, a stopping point for the Alilaguna water bus service from Marco Polo airport, is less then 7 minutes. Piazzale Roma (the traffic terminus) and Stazione Santa Lucia/Ferrovia (train terminal) are within a 15-20 minute walk. From the airports (Treviso or Marco Polo), you can take the airport bus or land taxi to Piazzale Roma; from Marco Polo, also water busses and soon a tram will run from the airport. For those arriving by larger watercraft (such as the ferry from Croatia, Greece or points beyond), the terminal, Stazione Marittima, is 3- 5 minutes from our apartment. Private water taxis can also bring you nearest the apartment (although please bear in mind this option is the costliest.) If you are arriving by way of your own watercraft, we offer a private mooring (9 meters in length) directly alongside our courtyard

Other Activities: antique markets, sightseeing, gondola rides, guided tours

Golf: There is a lovely golf course on the Lido in Venice, comprised of 18th holes located in the Alberoni area, near the mouth of port of Malamocco. The course is approximately 100 hectares, offering natural features similar to many Scottish links, where sand and wind provide a game equal to that of the best British tradition. World famous professionals have played this course, among them Arnold Palmer (who still holds a 5 below par record). Along the course, you'll find a vast array of trees that flank the fairways and make the game even more difficult; pines, weeping willows, poplars and mulberry, while wildlife abounds. The course is green and playable all year round. Circolo Venice Golf Club is believed one of the best and most challenging Italian courses. http://www.circologolfvenezia.com.

Ski: Several ski areas are within a 1.5 - 2 hr ride from Venice, including world famous Cortina D'Ampezzo, also Asiago, Lavarone, Sauze d’Oulx. Skiing is possible from October to April.

Notes:
Ca' Venexiana is comprised of a living room, a full kitchen, bathroom, two bedrooms and quiet courtyard. It is set on the ground floor with no worry of acqua alta (high water) as entry is accessed by way of a small set of stairs, keeping our flat 1+ meter above ground level. Filled with washes of natural light & views that are simply charming. Among our many amenities, you'll find TV(Digital), DVD, video games, stereo (iPod connection), unlimited wi-fi/broadband internet access with our computer (or yours), and a library of interesting books, music, movies. At Ca' Venexiana you will find the 'little things' most easily forgotten about when traveling—electrical adapters, umbrellas. Our kitchen is fully-equipped; we strongly suggest visiting the local markets and trying your hand at some Italian dishes (we have a selection of cookbooks on hand). Enjoy your meal outside on our wonderful secluded courtyard, giving a wave to a passing gondolier while churchbells echo in the distance
