|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
This spacious apartment at the second floor of a Gran Canal Palace in the Dorsoduro area right by Campo San Barnaba is composed of three double bedrooms (two doubles and one with two singles), a dining room, a large living room, a fully fitted kitchen, three bathrooms with tub and a small room with a single bed. It is very tastefully and carefully decorated, and all the bedrooms and the living room overlook the palazzo's private garden. All rooms have air conditioning and there is a lift but a flight of stairs must be made by foot.
Just a short email to let you know how much we enjoyed our Venitian trip. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed staying in your fantastic palazzo. You were more than helpful organising our transfers and greeting us on arrival. You have a wonderful home and it is filled with beautiful treasures. We will not hesitate to recommend you and your company to our friends. We hope to make a return trip in the future and look forward to another chance to experience Venice in its wonderful glory.
Ann and family.
Thank you Fillipo for your wonderful home! The place is beautiful, well kept, lovely furnishings, and extremely spacious. The location is wonderful. The neighborhood is very charming, with local bars and pizza that were delicious. Venice is quite suitable for walking, and we found this location perfect if you want to be out of the way of heavy tourist areas but still accessible enough to explore. We had a family of 7 and everyone was comfortable. The provisions are all there, making it quite simple for a great visit. The description, photos and amenitites are all accurate. Fillipo and his staff helped with ground transportation and the information binder at the property helped with train and bus times and helpful neighborhood tips. I would recommend this property! If you get a chance, take a day to check out Padova. It is very easy to get there by train. The train station from this house is about a 20 min walk and the ride to Padova is only 30 mins at a cost of about 3 EUR each way. Check out the Scrovegni Chapel! Well worth an afternoon!
My husband and I travel with tow other couples who are longtime friends. We usually take cruises but felt that we wanted to stay longer in Italy than just a couple of days here and there. So we rented apartments in Venice, Florence and Rome. Our first experience in Venice was wonderful. The location of this apartment is in a quieter location of Venice, but is easily accessible to the vaporetto stop so we were able to go anywhere we wanted. The apartment has updated bathrooms. we enjoyed the ability so visit in both the living and dining areas. The only problem is that there are stairs from the elevator to the apartment- so I would not recommend this for people with disabilities-but there are stairs all over Venice!
We have just left this wonderful property after a three night stay, but we should have stayed longer. It is everything that is advertised, quiet, spacious, clean and such an amazing location. You are in an old palace right on the Grand Canal in the Dorsodoro neighbourhood, but the way they have redesigned the space, it is amazingly quiet. It is very close to the vaporetto, a grocery store and a nice square with restaurants. We were trying to avoid the craziness of San Marco which was extremely busy and noisy. Venice can be difficult to navigate, but we were given an excellent map and the opportunity to ask how to get to various spots where we had tours, etc and this was so helpful (she marked it all on the map for us). In fact part of the charm of this trip for us was the Views on Venice staff who met us right at the front (water) door and explained how everything worked and where to find what we needed. We were so exhausted after a long trip through several time zones and this place gave us the space we needed to decompress, everyone had a corner to retreat to, if needed. I will say the wifi was excellent in the living room, but not elsewhere in the apartment. A nuisance, perhaps, but for us no big deal. One further item, we arranged our airport and train station transfers through the office and that was very convenient and they were all reliable. If you are looking for. Great place to stay in Venice, look no further!
We recently stayed for two weeks in Filippo's three-bedroom apartment in Palazzo Loredan on the Grand Canal, near Ca' Rezzonico and Campo San Barnaba. We were joined by another couple, and all of us marveled at the comfort and spaciousness of the apartment. It is beautifully furnished with the contemporary (the plush sofas in the living room, for example) and the antique, and it's spotlessly clean. There are enough "personal" items like leather-bound books and good paintings to give it a warm, cozy feeling -- quite the opposite of the sterility of so many rental apartments -- and there are modern comforts like satellite TV and a good WiFi connection . Despite perfect temperatures in the low-to-mid 70s, we all had a hard time tearing ourselves away from the apartment in the morning.
The living room and all three bedrooms look out on a large, lovely garden, providing peace and quiet and a great sleeping environment (to which good mattresses and bed linens also contributed). The kitchen is small but has a dishwasher, five-burner gas stove with oven, and a full-sized refrigerator. We prepared breakfast here every morning and had fun fixing the occasional dinner with seafood from the Rialto market. The bathrooms are modern and surprisingly large, and there is good water pressure and plentiful hot water, which is not always the case in historic buildings like the palazzo.
The location of the apartment is among the best in Venice. We've spent a total of six weeks in Venice now, and I don't think I'd stay anywhere but Dorsoduro, which is centrally located and yet outside the most heavily-traveled tourist areas of Venice. The apartment is very convenient to the Ca' Rezzonico vaporetto stop, and close to the restaurants, bars, and shops in Campo San Barnaba and Campo Santa Margherita. It's about a fifteen-minute walk to the Billa supermarket on the Zattere.
I think the description and photos on the web site accurately portray this apartment, but they can't capture its sense of spaciousness or the existence of small details (like the wealth of closet space, complete with an abundance of hangers) which help make this such a special rental. Nor can they capture the courtesy and gracious hospitality of Filippo, who made sure that every request (such as another large Moka) was immediately taken care of. Altogether an enchanting apartment and a perfect host in the most enchanting of cities!
We stayed in Ca' Cerchieri Mezzanine from the 3rd to the 8th of January 2011 for my 60th Birthday celebration. What a stunning apartment this is. It is cosy warm and spacious all at the same time. Elegant and wraps its arms around you - you don't want to leave.
Rachel welcomed us, very helpful and a lovely lady. Silvia Capo sorted out extra keys for us when needed. We have met Silvia before when renting Ca'da Rose - she is great fun and a lovely lady too. You have such great such staff !!! Views on Venice couldn't be more helpful and professional - we would never book with anyone else.
All in all a fabulous holiday in a great apartment. So quiet at night, great baths, showers. Comf ysofa's. The history of Venice is all aound you in this Palazzo - which is so full of history - We will be back very soon !!!!!
Take Care. Rosemary & Brian
This apartment is part of the Palazzo Loredan right on the Grand Canal in the Dorsoduro sestiere. It is in a great location right between the Ca Rezzonico and the Accademia. Our group consisted of a married couple, an adult daughter and our adult "Italian son". So the three bathrooms worked well for us. The apartment is nicely furnished with comfortable furniture and antiques. I would not recommend this apartment for small children, but teens would be fine. Only the dining, living and two large bedrooms are air conditioned, but this was fine for us. The apartment is immaculate and the bathrooms are very modern and of good size. The owner, Filippo, is very busy but always available by phone. He speaks excellent English and will take care of any problem or answer any question you may have. He also lives in the palazzo. The location is great. Nearby are excellent restaurants, the vaporetto stop (Ca Rezzonico), a grocery and bread store (around Campo San Barnaba), etc. The little pizza/gelato place at the end of the street (Calle del Cercchieri) and across the little bridge was great--awesome pizza by the slice and great gelato. The apartment is on the 2nd floor (3rd American). There is an elevator, but it stops below or above the actual apartment, so a set of stairs must be used--not recommended for people with disabilities. Since we were staying for a full week, we did purchase the Venice Card for 7 days which not only gave us unlimited use of the vaporetto, but also a good number of free and reduced admissions to attractions. We purchased the cards at the TI at the Venice Santa Lucia train station. I would highly recommend this apartment and also Venice itself. Just wander the streets and get lost--it's wonderful.
