This is a light and airy apartment in a fabulous position, just behind the lovely and central Campo San Barnaba in Dorsoduro, five minutes walk from the Accademia Bridge. The apartment is on two floors (duplex) and has been newly and carefully restored. It is second and third floor (no lift) and has nice views and partial views of the Grand Canal. It has original features, beamed ceilings and Venetian flooring. 85/90 square metres. It is composed of 2 double bedrooms (one can be divided in twins), two bathrooms (one with tub and one with shower), a mansardine with two fold out single beds, a living/dining area, a fully fitted kitchen and a large terrace. Air conditioning in the living area and in the mansardine, washing machine, TV, independent heating, terrace.
We could not have been happier with our accommodations in this lovely apartment and with the arrangments for transport from VCE to the apartment by the water taxi.
The description and the pictures of the apartment are absolutely accurate, but even they do not go far enough in describing how perfectly situated in the Dorsoduro the apartment is and how nicely appointed – right down to flower vases, an espresso maker and the dishwasher and washing machine. We were literally a 5 minute walk from the Accademia Bridge through picturesque narrow Calles and probably 6 minutes from the Zattere at a slow meander. Cafe's and restaurants abound in and around the Campo San Barnabus - a 2 minute stroll and more in the Campo San Margarita another 2 minutes away. Grocery stores are very convenient in San Margarita (Punto or Coop) and on the Zattere (Bilo) and the best gelato at Grum is that 2 minutes away.
We stayed during the Festa Redentore - the third weekend in July and were able to see the majority of the fireworks in the San Marco basin from the roof terrace, after a long multicourse meal prepared with fresh ingredients from the Rialto markets and the green grocery barge moored along the canal at Campo San Barnbus at the Ponte dei Pugni.
Thank you Filippo for a wonderful introduction to Venezia, we are forever spoiled for mere hotel accommodations. We have recommended your apartment(s) to all our friends and my only hesitation in submitting such a great review on the internet is that the apartment may not be available the next time we want to come to Venice. But I'll guess I'll have to take my chances.
Once again thank you.

The apartment was all we could have wished for - comfortable, well equipped, warm and characterful with lovely views all around. The lantana roof terrace was spectacular and we were able to use it even in November. Our hosts were charming and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to give us useful information about the apartment and the area. We liked Dorsoduro very much and found it easy to get about - a mobile phone was useful for satellite navigation of the small lanes and backwaters. We hope to stay there again in the not too distant future. Thank you for a memorable stay in beautiful Venice.
Das Apartment in Dorsoduro ist hell, freundlich und sehr komfortabel ausgestattet - die schöne Dachterrasse ‚Altana’ mit Blick über die Dächer Venedigs ist ein zusätzliches Highlight. Das Apartment liegt sehr ruhig und verkehrsgünstig und ist nur wenige Schritte von einer Vaporetto-Station und unweit der Accademia-Brücke entfernt. Viele Cafes und Restaurants sind in unmittelbarer Nähe und der Campo San Barnaba und Campo Santo Margeritha sind wunderschöne Plätze, die abseits vom Trubel gelegen, sehenswert sind. Filippo und sein Team hat alles perfekt organisiert, Grazie - wir sind begeistert und kommen wieder!
This apartment is indeed lovely. We were staying there in September 2013 to visit the Biennale and we couldn't have asked for a nicer accommodation. The apartment was very well-maintained and exactly how described online. We especially enjoyed the quietness of the area in which it is located as the city itself is naturally very busy during the summer. We are looking forward to staying here again next year end spending wonderful evenings on the stunning roof top deck.
This is a beautiful and spacious apartment! Lorenza met us at the water taxi stop and brought us directly to the apartment. She was very helpful and friendly. The location is ideal; away from the busy tourist areas yet easily accessible. The roof top deck is wonderful. It is right near Campo San Barnaba (great coffee shops) and Santa Margherita (lots of restaurants, supermarket). I would most definitely stay here again.
The apartment provided the perfect base for our 4 day stay in Venice. A great location very close to the Accademia Bridge and the Zattere with an easy walk to San Marco while being away from the path followed by most tourists. Campo Santa Margherita is also nearby and very lively at night. The apartment is bright, very spacious, comfortable and well equipted (just like the pictures). The rooftop deck is wonderful for morning coffee and beverages in the afternoon and evening with quintessential views of Venetian rooftops and many church spires. Filippo and his team were a pleasure to deal with not to mention being a great source of information on how best to see the numerous sights in Venice. They also had some excellent restaurant suggestions (at all price points). We would happily stay there again on future visits to Venice.
