About the property

Second Floor Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 5

The palazzetto has a private garden and is located in a charming campiello with a fountain and a lively neighborhood cafe. It is 10 minutes from the Accademia Bridge. Two vaporetto stops are nearby. It is near the Church of San Nicolo' dei Mendicoli, one of the oldest in Venice, and near the venerable school of Architecture at Universita' Ca' Foscari. This is a vibrant venetian neighborhood, where savvy travelers can immerse themselves in venetian life.

Architect restored with careful attention to traditional Venetian materials. Entrance features a mosaic of 14th century marble. Beamed ceilings throughout the building help make staying in this house an authentic Venetian experience. Pieces from my painting and photography collection are on display.

The extremely quiet apartment occupies the entire 2nd floor of the building, providing a light and airy atmosphere with good cross ventilation.

*Maid Service is included*

Beautiful Apartment, super clean, lots of supplies

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying here, Apartment was beautiful and supplied with lots of towels and kitchen supplies, much more than we expected. Manager was super helpful with lots of information, and arranged taxi to airport when we left. Owner lives in US and was very good to work with. Would love to stay here again! Barbara in Texas

Quiet location

  • 4 of 5

I booked for 2 married couples and we loved the area and thought the flat very clean, light and fresh and all modern conveniences. We found the apartment lounge/dining to be quite small and the second room didn't have a double bed but a trundle bed set up, more suited to children, which was very disappointing. The photo of the second room, though stated as studio, I thought that referred to room size not to the single beds stashed on under the other.. Perhaps that could be expressed on web site.The living space for 4 adults was small and as travellers passionate about wine, the lack of wine glasses a tad frustrating. Natasha was very cheerful, helpful and tolerant of my poor attempts at Italian.Overall a lovely place but too small for 4 adults.

A Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently returned from a week-long stay in this Venetian Apartment in Dorsoduro. We loved everything about this home-away-from-home. The location was great. Outside the more crowded touristy areas. Very near to Campos Santa Margherita and Barnaba. Charming Osterias nearby. And, the apartment itself was wonderful. Spotlessly clean. Thoughtfully furnished with nice art, a fully stocked kitchen, books and cd's. We recommend this apartment highly, and can't wait until our next visit.

A Blissful Venetian Summer

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the second floor apartment for almost two months during my internship at a museum in Venice along with one roommate. I can safely say that this apartment is what helped make my marvelous experience in Venice what it was. Situated in a quiet spot (with fortunately no tourist activity) local cafes, shops, and a supermarket are steps away from the apartment. Campo Santa Margherita is about a ten minute walk away and is a great spot for cafes and gelato during the day and lots of bars to choose from at night. The apartment was also very close to the waterside promenade called the Zattere. You get a real taste for the life of Venetian locals. The apartment itself was very comfortable, clean and equipped by Italian standards with a fully stocked kitchen, two good sized bedrooms, and newly remodeled bathrooms as well as a washer AND dryer (virtually unheard of in Italy). Both the housekeeper and caretaker of the apartment were very helpful and professional. The apartment is a wonderful retreat after a day of sightseeing or other activities. I'll also add that the apartment was the envy of my fellow interns who were staying in multiple apartments across the city. I highly recommend it for a short or long term stay.

Venice apartment

  • 4 of 5

My 2 girlfriends and I stayed stayed there last weekend. The apartment was clean. There was only one toilet roll per bathroom left for us. The steps going up to the apartment are dreadful especially since we had heavy luggage. On the Saturday nite, the dog from the apartment above us, barked for almost 2 hours straight until about 2 am, so we couldn't sleep. The location is great and you can walk to anywhere you want. The owner was nice and let us store our luggage all day on Sunday in the foyer.

Live A Venetian Life In This Apartment on a Square

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to call home for our 6 days in Venice. The apartment was cosy, immaculate (at least before our 3 kids moved in) and had all we needed (toilet paper, towels, dish soap, other necessities). After our apartment in Florence, which offered a single saucepan as its cooking supplies, I was thrilled to find a really well-stocked kitchen with plenty of plates, pots, pans, and also staples, like olive oil and salt. Although we ate out some, we also shopped at the local markets (including the fish market in Campo Santa Margherita) and had some wonderful meals! We also enjoyed the garden, where my daughter kept an eye on a bird hatching her eggs right in the jessamine vine. And we even got maid service in the middle of our stay! Sleeping 5 would be a bit of a squeeze long-term since we have 2 teenagers but it was very do-able for a short-term stay.

And the location in Dosoduro could not have been better. We had wanted to avoid the tourist crush of San Marco during Easter week, and we did! We were in a neighborhood where the kids walked to school in the morning, the nonas walked to the market, and Venetian life went on all around us. We walked a little further to see the sights than we would have had we been in San Marco, but the evening quiet and the chance to see a living Venice far outweighed the additional 10 minutes of walking. It's delightful to be near the Zattere, and the best gelato in Venice at Nico's, which we visited every day. Plenty of markets nearby, good local restaurants (La Bitta was special!), and a church with stunning art on every canal corner. The housekeeper arranged a water taxi for us to get to the airport for our early morning flight -- an exciting way to leave Venice if you have to. I would recommend this apartment to anyone, and will make every effort to stay there again when I return to the magical world of Venice. Barbara, the owner, was wonderful to deal with, as were Maria and Natasha.
