A super apartment now made even better! Carefully renovated in 2012 to bring it bang up to date in both looks and facilities – a popular choice on the first floor of a pretty house just off the Campo Sant’ Agnese in the Dorsoduro district. Seconds away from the Zattere waterfront (via a short 'sottoportego') for wonderful walks and stunning canal views across to the island of Giudecca and minutes to the Accademia Bridge/the world-renowned Academy of Fine Arts and the 20th Century art of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection on the Grand Canal.
Entered by way of its own private front door and benefitting from air-conditioning for added comfort during Venice’s warmer months, Ca’ Belle Arti has a hallway on the ground floor (off which is a handy laundry room with washing machine) and a short staircase leading directly into an attractive open-plan main living space on the level above. Comfy and attractively decorated, the living area has broadband internet connection for keeping in touch and incorporates a well laid out sitting area with a sofa and double sofa bed, a fitted kitchen with all the necessary appliances for easy self-catering and a dining area with ample seating as part of the kitchen.
Just off this room is the bright and freshly decorated master bedroom which has tall ceilings, warm wooden flooring and two large windows allowing in plenty of light and which also features ample storage, a comfortable double bed (which can be made into two singles - simply ask when booking) and a newly installed en-suite bathroom with modern shower and the latest fittings. The second bedroom with double bed is smaller (though also very comfy) and nestles quietly to the rear of the house, while a newly fitted bathroom conveniently placed towards the middle of the apartment features smart marble tiles, up to date accoutrements and a bathtub with shower over.
A great all-rounder of an apartment, newly renovated and peacefully placed in one of Venice’s nicest locations.
Close to the Church of the Gesuati (Santa Maria del Rosario) and a great choice of eating places along the Zattere, including the well-known gelataria ‘Da Nico’, the accomplished cooking of ‘Lineadombra’ and Ristorante Riviera or, for something simpler, ‘Ae Oche’ with its mind-boggling variety of eat-in or takeaway pizza. Moments to the well-loved ‘Bar Da Gino’ for your breakfast cappuccino and for watching the world go by and to the fresh fish stall on Piscina Del Forner (Tues-Sat, a.m.’s only).
Ca’ Belle Arti also lies within seconds of the sleepy calle where, in a scene from the classic 1955 David Lean film ‘Summertime’, Katharine Hepburn and her street urchin companion laughingly cool themselves down in the waters of the neighbourhood fountain.
Minutes to two vaporetto stops – ‘Zattere’ to the south and ‘Accademia’ to the north and only one minute to the Alilaguna boat stop connecting the Zattere to Venice's Marco Polo Airport.
We LOVED this apartment...just the right size...and a wonderful location that was quiet and yet convenient. The team was terrific once we were there....I was a little frustrated with the communication prior, but once on the ground and there in Venice, the team could not have been more fantastic. There are wonderful restaurants right in the area - we had great meals at Ai Gondelieri and La Piscina (right around the corner). We really lucked out with this apartment....and we'd stay here again!
Perfect location for a relaxing stay in Venice - away from the crowds yet close enough to walk anywhere. The apartment was equipped with everything we could have wanted, nicely-decorated, comfortable and with the best shower we'd seen in Europe in a long time!
What a fantastic apartment. We felt so lucky to find such a wonderful place to stay during our visit to Venice. The moment we stepped off the water taxi, we were met by a property manager who was warm and gracious and informative. She led us to our apartment and explained in great detail everything we needed to know. The apartment was beautiful and so clean and well maintained. It was also located in a great spot just within a minute from the water taxi and close to a great grocery market where we bought all our supplies for our meals. The kitchen was so well stocked and the bedrooms were specious with very comfortable beds. We loved every minute we got to spend here.
This apartment is ideally located on a quiet street for a good night's sleep, but is a short stroll to good Dusoduro restaurants and stores, and a supermarket. Located off a quaint square where children can safely play, it is also very close to 2 Vaporetta line stops, giving you easy access to all the tourist sites if you prefer not to walk over bridges. Views on Venice was very helpful during the booking process. The apartment is well equipped for tourists, with excellent appliance instructions and local guide suggestions for restaurants and activities. Apartment photos offer a true likeness, and the accommodation is comfortable and clean. The air conditioning and wifi/satellite TV was a appreciated. The neighborhood appears very safe. I would definitely use Views On Venice again!
Family of 4 with 2 teenagers, we travel a lot and know what we want. We were very happy with the apartment, the two full bathrooms was a +. Given how hot and humid it was the A/C was a must and it worked its magic. It could be a bit cozy for 4 people but we were there for 3 nights and that was perfect. Dorsoduro was ideal for us: away from the noise but close enough to everything. Water bus and water taxis almost at your door. Views on Venice staff were very professional and accommodating. We would go back and already recommended it to people who inquired about it on the street.
