Venetian Surroundings for Up to Eight Guests With Four Very Private Bedrooms
A beautiful canal side address to impress �� the epitome of style and understated elegance on the Canal Dei Greci with its famous leaning tower nearby. This really is the best of both worlds… less than ten minutes from all the must-see sights of St Mark's Square (including the Basilica, the Doge’s Palace and the Clock Tower) and yet right next to the quieter, more atmospheric neighbourhood of Castello.
Fans of Donna Leon���s fictional crime-buster, Commissario Guido Brunetti, will certainly feel at home here. The offices of the “Questura�� where he works are a few doors away.
Ca’ dei Greci is an unusually light and airy apartment with lovely views over a wide canal - gondolas glide past and a water taxi can drop you at your front door. It offers spacious and classically Venetian surroundings for up to eight guests with four very private bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms.
The main sitting-room has three double-height windows opening directly onto a balcony overlooking the canal, with a park beyond. It’s a charming, central room, very Venetian in style with an oriental rug on a traditional terrazzo floor, old mirrors and tasteful artworks.
The informal TV room to the side has huge, comfortable sofas, an upright piano for the musically inclined, air-conditioning and two windows also overlooking the canal. The dining room is a picture of elegance in which classic wooden cabinetry and the bold geometric patterns of the polished parquet flooring are offset by the delicacy of a fine crystal chandelier and pretty cane-backed chairs. If you fancy a formal Venetian dinner, this is the place!
The dining room looks out towards the Campinale of St Mark's which you can see over the terracotta rooftops. Next to it stands the white, light-filled kitchen which is fully equipped and features traditional terrazzo flooring plus a scrubbed wooden country style table for lazy breakfasts or preparing lunch or dinner.
There are four large and very tasteful air-conditioned bedrooms – three doubles and a twin - each stylishly presented with antique furniture, comfortable beds and beautiful wardrobes. The master bedroom has a secret door leading to its own hidden bathroom and canal views which are shared by the second bedroom. The double bedroom at the back looks out over a pretty, palm-filled garden and the twin is charming and roomy.
So – ideal for a large family or for couples staying together (and needing their own space), Ca�� Dei Greci is a Venetian home from home.
Space and relaxed grandeur in a fabulous spot���
A short walk to the atmospheric Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni and its wonderful Carpaccio paintings, the monumental Dominican Basilica di Santi Giovanni e Paolo (one of the largest churches in Venice and burial place of no fewer than 25 Venetian Doges), and to Campo Santa Maria Formosa (site of the Querini Stampalia) passing Palazzo Grimani on the way.
And even closer to home - moments to the imposing façade of the cavernous Church of San Lorenzo (just visible from the apartment but now closed to the public, the church was the supposed resting place of famous Venetian explorer Marco Polo (1255-1324) before his body was lost during its rebuilding) and to the Museo di Dipinti Sacri Byzanti (Museum of Icons) just along the canal.
Also within easy reach of the local Punto supermarket for easy self-catering and to the vaporetto (water bus) stop at San Zaccaria for easy travel around the city.

The floor in our bedroom was damaged in two areas, right where my husband got out of bed each morning. broken wood with sharp edges. This should have been pointed out to us when we arrived and a rug should have been used to cover it. The house was also full of mosquitoes as there were no screens on the windows. We had to open the windows because of the smell that seeps into the bathrooms from the canal.
Dear Mrs Byrden,
Thank you for your comments.
Firstly, I'd like to offer my sincere apologies for the aspects of your stay which didn't come up to our usual high standards.
While I appreciate that this doesn't come in time to be of benefit to yourself and your family, I would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that the apartment floor has now been completely polished, repainted and fixed in the broken parts.
Regarding mosquitoes; Venice is a city that lives on the water therefore mosquitoes in the summer period can be a disturb. Ca Dei Greci though has air conditioning in every single bedroom and mosquitoes repellents and usually this is enough to solve the issue.
Regarding the smell issue this is the very first time we have been reported, so I have checked myself but I did not encounter any kind of smell. Might be due to an exceptional low tide but this has never been reported to us in three successful rental years but will deeply investigate.
Sincerely, Filippo & the ViewsOnVenice team
review of Ca' Dei Greci
We were very pleasantly surprised by the spaciousness of the apartment - the four bedrooms are very large and the layout is fantastic with each rooms being very private from each other. All the bathrooms have been updated. The shared spaces (dining, living room, kitchen) are all very bright and airy. The whole apartment is very well equipped, and having the air condition was really great - we needed it since it was very hot and humid when we were there - and it covered the entire apartment. The apartment furnishing is a little old and worn and could use an uplift but everything was clean. LOVE the location - very close to the canal and popular spots like San Marco and Rialto Bridge (within 10 minutes walking distance) which made it easy to get around, even to catch water transportation. Yet, it is nice and quiet and we enjoyed shopping at the small supermarket within 5 minutes walks from the apartment. The view from the apartment is amazing! Just love this place and would rent it again. The agency , Views on Venice, was great and efficient and everyone we dealt with there was very prompt and friendly. I would HIGHLY recommend both the apartment and Views on Venice agency to everyone! Thanks for the great vacation we had.
Lovely property. Stay here to see Venice. Easy walking distance.
We rented this flat for 6 adults for 5 nights in July, 2017.
Beautiful flat with all you need to see Venice - we had more than enough room! Kitchen was perfect for preparing meals if you wish.
AC works well - we never had a problem.
When they suggest arranging a private water taxi for you, say yes! It is a fair distance when walking with a lot of steps - so if you don't plan on packing light accept the offer of a private water taxi.
Wonderful apartment made my mothers 80th birthday celebration very special.
Fantastic apartment in great location an easy walk to St. Marco. Excellent service from friendly and helpful Views on Venice staff.
Magical time and place!
Views On Venice provided the most wonderful apartment in Venice, as well as the best possible service in getting us situated. The apartment was even better than described, and the Views On Venice staff are absolutely top-notch. I cannot say enough how wonderful our stay in Venice was and how much that beautiful canal-side apartment and the folks at Views On Venice contributed to it! We cannot wait to return to Venice and would not hesitate to make Views On Venice our partner in finding the right place to stay.
Wow! What a review!!!! Thank you so much and we are so happy that you loved our Ca’ Dei Greci apartment, its location as well as our dedicated customer care service; we will be more than happy to host you back again here or in any other one of our properties!
