Dorsoduro Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Unusually spacious romantic one bedroom courtyard apartment

We are delighted to announce that Ca' Masena, our beautiful restored courtyard apartment has been selected for Alastair Sawday's Special Places website. They 'reject the bland, the corporate and the impersonal' & 'select only the most special places and owners'. You’ll find it literally moments from Zattere with its stunning views across the water to Giudecca Island. The furnishings enhance the apartment’s character combinig classical style with contemporary comfort. Exposed beams & subtle terrazzo flooring give a traditional Venetian finish while the Italian chandeliers, original oil paintings and textiles add more than a hint of luxury. The apartment's spacious lounge has sofa beds & comfortable seats. There is a home cinema system with ipod dock & WiFi access is available throughout. The double bedroom looks out onto the delightful paved courtyard which can be reached through a well-appointed kitchen. Enjoy your breakfast in the sun while planning another wonderful day in Venice.

Ca'Masena: Our apartment is ideal as a romantic retreat for couples or small families.Both the living and dining area seats up to six people, so enjoy dinner parties with friends. For times of relaxation play music from our selection of CDs. There is a home cinema system with an internet linked TV, a Blue Ray/DVD player, 5.1 surround sound & ipod dock. WiFi access is available throughout. Watch films from our selection of DVDs or television...that is if you can tear yourself away from the delights of the city! We have aimed to create a luxurious setting in which to enjoy your stay.There are two comfortable sofa beds in the sitting room. One is a double bed while the other is a single bed. You will find many extra items for your use, which include worldwide electrical adaptors; umbrellas; guidebooks. There is a selection of literature,cook books and CDs for your enjoyment. Our pretty courtyard is filled with terracotta pots where we have jasmine, oleanders and even a lemon tree growing! There is also a pot of herbs growing near the kitchen door which you can use for your cooking. Included in your stay are towels and bed linen and all utilities as well as unlimited internet use.

Shopping: We are just around the corner from one of the few Venetian supermarkets, 2 minutes walk away. Buying food couldn't be easier. Or be more adventurous and go to the famous floating barge crammed with fruit and vegetables just off San Barnaba. There is the daily food market in nearby Campo Santa Margherita and various other small food outlets scattered around where you can buy meats, cheese etc. This will be a more interesting although challenging shopping experience than the supermarket! You will find many antique and gift shops in Dorsoduro, notably around San Barnaba and the Peggy Guggenheim Museum/Salute area.

Location: You could not be in a better location as we are situated in one of the most desirable parts of Venice by the Zattere promenade where you can take your strolls along with the Venetians. The water bus stops 'San Basilio' and 'Zattere' are only a few minutes away, from which you can start your journeys for outings further afield, including perhaps a day trip to the outer islands. This area is the centre of the Arts in Venice and is richly populated with Museums, Galleries, Churches and Historic buildings.

We are sure that our Venetian retreat will provide you with a truly pleasurable experience.

Wonderful apartment in Dorsoduro!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this apartment for 4 nights and were very pleased with our choice. The pictures and description were accurate and the apartment even exceeded our expectations. The location was fantastic and it was exceptionally easy to work with the owner and the "Meet and Greet" person. The apartment was immaculate and the kitchen was well stocked with any utensils you might need. The outdoor patio was lovely. We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to friends, family and fellow travelers. If we returned to Venice, we would absolutely rent this apartment again.

Excellent Venetian experience, great location

  • 4 of 5
We have stayed in Venice many time with good and bad experiences from hotels and self-catering. This was a good experience.
This time the apartment was all that it was advertised, great location, excellent restaurants nearby, close to water bus stops, a blues singer to meet and greet and a classic Venetian apartment in all its glory with a garden!!
Recommended to anyone wanting a true Venice experience

More than just a great location

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is at the end of a small calle just off the Zattere in the Dorsoduro district. This means that as you step out from the calle you get wonderful views across to the Guidecca and as you walk along the beautiful Zattere the pleasure of bright sunlight for much of the day. With vaporetto stops nearby getting around is very easy and many must do sights such as the Galleria Accademia and the Peggy Guggenheim gallery are an easy walk away( as are several lesser known churches worth visiting) . Great bars and restaurants are also minutes away. However this pretty apartment is more than just a great location. The small kitchen area is very well equipped, the beds are very comfortable and the living room spacious and elegant. The courtyard is lovely. The nearby supermarket has everything you might need and there is a a lovely fruit and vegetable shop round the corner. The meet and greet service was excellent. We would recommend this apartment unreservedly. We stayed for a week.

Perfect place

Ca'Masena is a comfortable and tastefully furnished appartment enhanced by Richard's paintings. It is so conveniently located to explore the delights of Venice on foot or by Vaporetti. Highly reccommended!

All you need, excellent location

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at Ca' Masena with our 2 children. The appartment was perfect very comfortable. Bedroom, dining area, kitchen and bathroom all really good. Great Wifi connection and washing machine and garden for sorting laundry and supermarket just round the corner. Was a short walk to the centre of Venice and even nearer to San Margareta, where the restaurants were much nice and much better value. would definitely stay here again.

Live like a local in Venice!

  • 5 of 5
I had always wanted to visit Venice but wasn't keen on the "touristy" experience or sure how much fun it would be with young children (5 and 7) until I read an article in a newspaper recommending a stay at Ca' Masena. We had an absolutely brilliant time! The apartment is small but perfectly formed. There is plenty of room for a young family - we had the spacious double bedroom and the kids were on sofa-beds in the lounge. There is free-WIFI, loads of guide-books, TV/DVD etc to keep the kids happy after a long day of walking and a pretty courtyard for sitting outside if it's sunny. The kitchen/dining room comfortably catered for 6 people and as we had our in-laws staying nearby in a hotel we cooked dinner in the apartment a couple of times which was great as we did find eating out to be expensive (as anticipated!) - so it was great to have that option.
Best of all is the location, in Dorsoduro which although incredibly central and beautiful, also manages to feel like a real neighbourhood. You can get to the famous sights and the Grand Canal really quickly, but equally spend hours happily wandering the backstreets and lesser known squares in Dorsoduro (some of the best cicchetti bars are around here too). There is a large and excellent Billa supermarket pretty much next door to the apartment, the best ice-cream in Venice at Nico's a short stroll away (they also do coffee and pastries for breakfast), the Zattere waterfront for people watching and 3 waterbus stops within a short distance
The owner (Suzette) was really helpful throughout, and there is a brilliant meet and greet service where you are taken to the apartment, shown around and given a few excellent locals tips for restaurants etc. The best of these tips was to try the local wine shop where you can buy 3 litre bottles of local wine (really nice quality - certainly no worse than any table wine in the restaurants) from a friendly local winemaker for a few Euros!
I am already planning a return visit to Ca' Masena - can't imagine wanting to stay anywhere else!

Ca'Masena is situated in Dorsoduro one of the most desirable areas in Venice just off the magnificent Zattere waterfront and only a couple of minutes walk away from the San Basilio & Zattere Vaporetti. We are a 2 minute walk away from the supermarket. It is also within easy reach of other transport links such as Piazzale Roma and Ferrovia.

Stroll along the Zattere with its amazing views across to Giudecca Island and Palladio's wonderful Redentore church. Keep going and you will reach La Salute which marks the point where the Grand Canal meets the Bacino di San Marco, from which you can see the whole expanse of the lagoon. You will not forget such a moment in a hurry! Also local to us is the Guggenheim and Punta della Dogana Art Museums both near the Accademia Bridge. Not far away is Campo Barnaba, with its famous floating vegetable ‘shop’, and a bit further on is Campo Santa Margherita one of the liveliest squares in Venice with cafes, restaurants and a daily food market. Dorsoduro, the heart of the Arts for Venice indeed has it all!
