Overview

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'. We have also been mentioned in an article on Venice by Guardian newspaper. 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! 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.

Secret Escape in Venice

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Ca Masena. The apartment is well equipped and feels quite spacious for a one bedroom pied-a-terre. There were four of us, two adults and two children and it seemed to easily absorb us and all of our things. The courtyard is a real bonus and catches the sun for a good part of the day – on two occasions we made having lunch there part of our itinerary. A minor criticism would be the taps where, in true Italian fashion, form seems to have overtaken function, but we got used to them.

We found the location on Dorsoduro is really good. It’s away from the tourist hordes of Venice, but easy walking to most places we wanted to go. Its proximity to the San Basilo vaporetto stop helps too. Dorsoduro is a fascinating area in itself and the restaurants and bars seem to be very good, as well as more reasonable, catering to residents and students.

For our children Ca Masena, hidden down an alleyway off Zattere, was like a secret hideaway in the middle of the seething excitement of Venice. For us it was calm and comfortable after a long day.

Comfortable home away from home in Venice, Italy

  • 5 of 5

Ca'Masena is a great apartment, conveniently located near the San Basilio vaporetto stop and a grocery store. The owner, Suzzette, is wonderful to work with. She provided us lots of information to make our trip a success. Her local meet and greet staff were also very helpful. The apartment has a large bedroom with a comfortable bed. There is also a convertible sofa and bed chair so you could have 5 people easily. The apartment is in a 300 year old building which contrasts with all the modern touches (besides electricity, kitchen and bath) like the a clothes washer, fast wi-fi and great TV, dvd player and a selection of dvds. We really enjoyed our week long stay and would happily stay there again on any return visit.

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

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!
