The house is on two levels with an open plan lounge, dining and kitchen area on the ground floor. This opens onto a private courtyard which can be used for al fresco dining, maybe a glass of Prosecco before dinner or just enjoying Venice outdoors. There are two matching sofas in the lounge area, one of which converts into a double sofa bed. There is a separate bathroom with wash basin and WC.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one with double bed, the other with twin beds. There is a bathroom with shower, bidet and WC. The house has been renovated recently with attractive cherry wood flooring. All of the beds, sofas, garden furniture and kitchen equipment are brand new.
The house is located in picturesque Dorsoduro, just off the Campo Santa Margherita. It is an easy 5 minute walk to Piazzale Roma and the railway station. Despite experiencing more of the 'real Venice', access to the main tourist attractions, such as San Marco, is easy and fast, giving the best of both worlds
There is a flat screen TV and DVD player with a selection of DVDs available. Please feel free to bring your own DVDs if you want to watch these at the house. Similarly, there is a CD player and radio for your use. The house has it's own WiFi connection.
We love Italy and as we move towards retirement, we wanted to spend as much time as we can in one of our favourite countries. Venice has always captivated and intrigued. Each time we visit, there is something new to see and experience. The place itelf is simply amazing1
Easy! Starting with Venice, then Dorsoduro which in our view is the best of the 6 'sestiers' of Venice in terms of being 'Real Venice', the bars and restaurants, the architecture and the convenient links to transport, particularly Piazzale Roma buses, taxis and the magical St Lucia railway station.
The private courtyard was the clincher for us. We spent 18 months finding the right property. My friend and Estate Agent, Andrea, called me one day to say, he knew he had found the special place that we had been looking for. He was right!
The Veneto has all year round attractions from the winter skiing in the Dolomites to the hot and balmy days of summer. Venice is the ideal base from which to explore the region, served by excellent road, rail and maritime links. Nearby are the attractions of the Eugenean Hills, The Veneto wine country, historic cities of Padua, Vicenza, Verona and Trieste. In the middle of all this is the jewel that is Venice, La Serenissima.
Twelve million visitors a year, can't be all wrong, Venice is the most magical city on earth. Whether you want to visit the major tourist attractions or just wander the streets and canals getting lost along the way, there are so many ways of visiting the city. If you’ve already been to St. Marks and fed the pigeons, maybe you are looking to experience a more authentic, less touristy side of Venice?
Dorsoduro is known as the hipper “sestier”, less crowded, but still packed with history and culture, with beautiful churches as well as great bars and restaurants
