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.)

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!
