Dorsoduro Apartment Rental Photos and Description
2 double bedrooms (1 can be split into 2 singles) and a fold out bed
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.
