Overview

About the property

A Superbly Presented 4 Bedroom/2 Bathroom Apartment Sleeping 7

Flamboyant, theatrical and one of a kind - a superbly presented 4 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment sleeping 7 in style amidst the buzz of San Marco.

Furnished throughout with charm and originality and a beautiful ‘altana’ rooftop terrace for taking in the views, Ca’ Dei Sospiri (so named after its uber-central location near the iconic Bridge of Sighs) comprises spacious and intriguingly decorated accommodation.

Laid out over six floors, the apartment is entered via its own private entrance on the ‘calle’ which leads to a stylish monochrome hallway - a little taste of things to come! - with a separate handy cloakroom for storage beyond.

A staircase rises to the first floor which comprises an inner hallway resplendent in duck egg blue and illuminated by the beautiful patterns cast by a sparkling Edwardian-style crystal chandelier, a bright and simply equipped (yet quite grandly decorated) kitchen/dining room, and a splendid beamed and air-conditioned sitting room enjoying entertaining views over the lively Campo San Filippo e Giacomo below and where rich luxurious furnishings and carpeting, interesting artwork and thoughtful finishing touches blend harmoniously to create an atmosphere of taste and individuality.

Sleeping accommodation on this first floor comprises an elegant double bedroom dressed in attractive warm yellow tones, and a dove grey beauty of a single with day bed and interesting wall prints - both have air-conditioning and share a striking black and white deco-style bathroom with shower.

A (fairly steep) lantern-lit and star-embellished stairway then rises to the floor above which in turn is home to a charming little beamed study/sitting area with desk and armchairs, a second air-conditioned beamed double bedroom again in soothing duck egg blue, and a separate white tiled bathroom with bathtub.

A further staircase leads to Ca’ Dei Sospiri’s fourth bedroom - a chic and very cosy top-of the-house haven with air-conditioning, beautiful beams, a Toile de Jouy bed and steps leading up to the apartment���s furnished ‘altana’ rooftop terrace* offering a view of the campo, St. Mark’s Campanile and the silvery domes of the Basilica.

OUR COMMENT

An impressively stylish show-stopper of an apartment - centrally placed and ideal for larger groups.

Within moments of all the important sights of St. Mark’s Square, yet also close to the laid back charms of the Castello district.

Within a short walk of the Coop supermarket at Salizzada San Lio for stocking up on supplies and the vaporetto (water bus) stop at San Zaccaria on the Riva Degli Schiavoni waterfront for easy travel around the city and to the beaches of the Lido for relaxation in summer.

* Please note that access to the altana rooftop terrace is exclusively via this fourth bedroom.

Beatifully decorated apartment

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautifully decorated property in a very central location. We have rented in Venice a number of times and this is the most luxurious. If you want a central location this is it, you can see how close you are to Piazza San Marco and the basilica from the pictures of the roof terrace. Naturally this puts you in the thick of the tourists but despite that it's peaceful and relaxing inside. Not for anyone who has problems with stairs or has vertigo, like many Venice apartments it's pretty vertical and this one is unusual in having part of another apartment sandwiched between two of its floors. The result is a double-height flight of stairs to get from the main floor up to the next. Views on Venice were excellent , I'd thoroughly recommend them.

Perfect Venetian House

  • 5 of 5

We rented Ca' dei Sospiri for a birthday weekend in October. It was a well-located house (very near to P. San Marco but far enough away to not feel overly busy) and we had plenty of room for our group of friends. The property was lovely and decorated with character, we liked that each room had a different theme. The roof terrace is lovely, albeit quite small (would be tight with more than 4-5 ppl standing), with views of the San Marco bell tower and pretty Venetian rooftops. The Views on Venice team was extremely helpful from start to finish, and provided a big notebook with great recommendations for our stay. They were also very responsive to our requests (especially easy to contact by email) both before and during our stay. I would absolutely rent from them again - thank you for helping to make our trip so wonderful!

Soggiorno in Ca' Dei Sospiri

  • 4 of 5

L'appartamento è ben tenuto e corrisponde alla descrizione. La biancheria è ottima e così' pure i materassi. L'appartamento è centralissimo, silenzioso ma si sviluppa su tre piani..non è adatto a chi ha problemi agli arti o di deambulazione. Lo staff è stato gentilissimo e puntuale. Ottima comunicazione. per la prossima visita a Venezia li contatterò nuovamente.

This apartment is beautifully decorated comfortable and a pleasure to spend time in: I was traveling with my three teenage children. My favorite was the balcony at night for a drink: we would sit up there all five of us elbow to elbow and no wifi so we enjoyed the company of our teens who put down their phones: This apartment is well located, close to St. Marks Square with many a great espresso bar right down stairs we bought morning pastries from for breakfast. Cooking was tight but not too tight and we enjoyed several meals we cooked ourselves in the apartment in the lovely dining area off the small kitchen; The sitting room was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. The staff made getting in and out of the city very simple and hassle free. We would come again, recommend the apartment to friends and family and can't say enough good things about the our stay in this enchanting house; (multiple floors with a bedroom on the first, we took that and the young people had the bedrooms on the second third and fourth floor..... They loved having their own floor with a bedroom, it was sweet!

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 stayed at this beautifully decorated, centrally located, and well-managed apartment this June. I was perpetually amazed at all the little details that had thoughtfully planned, from the piping on the chairs to the perfectly placed and sized lighting, to the woodwork around the doors. Every detail is perfect. It is located a stone's throw from St. Mark's and has a quiet terrace for the evening aperitif. Additionally, the owner and her support staff with amazingly helpful to our family such as arranging our taxi to the airport and teaching me how to use the traditional Italian coffee maker. This place is perfect. Thank you to all who helped make our stay so enjoyable.
