Overview

Dorsoduro House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedr, 1 Livingr, 1 Kich, 1 Bathr, (Sleeps 4+1), Wifi, Ac, Sat.tv, Full opt

This 'apartment' is really an independent house (dates from the 17th century), with separate entrance. Its exterior and interior were recently restored, with care taken to conserve its original characteristics. The home is sited in a corner of Campo San Barnaba, one of the most suggestive and picturesque place of Venice, in the artist quarter, near Accademia.

Our apartment is really one minute from the vaporetto stop of Cà Rezzonico (sited in the 'centre' of Canal Grande in front of Palazzo Grassi, near the Accademia bridge), from which you can reach both Rialto and San Marco in around five minutes. The quarter offers cultural activities and characteristic spots that also stay open late in the evening. At the same time, it is a tranquil and relaxing place, without the usual bustle of tourists.

The house, very nice as I told above, and well lighted, consists of two floors. The first floor includes the entrance, the kitchen/dining area and a bathroom with shower. The second floor offers a living room with a comfortable double bed sofa and television with a satellite connection and a master sleeping room (with one double bed and one single small for child, so there are five bed places). The house has an independent heating system for winter and an air conditioning system for summer.

The kitchen is well equipped with new appliance: gas stove, a large refrigerator, a microwave oven and grill, dishwasher, and washing machine. In the living room and in the bedroom there are two large closet, a work desk.

The house has it's own telephone and an ADSL (high speed) internet line with a Wi-fi router.

We loved our stay. The apartment is great. Everything you need is there except an oven. We recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to visit Venice. The team taking care of the apartment were very useful. Great experience!

Great location! Nice home base for touring Venice!

  • 4 of 5

Good apartment for a couple visiting. The Campo S. Barnaba is a fantastic location.

Would stay there again. Only criticism is that the bed could be a little softer and pillows fluffier, but that's a personal preference.

Loved This Neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

Antonio's apartment is perfect for a couple. Its small but quite functional and has everything you need for comfort and convenience. The very comfortable bedroom is upstairs while the bathroom is down so I wouldn't recommend to anyone with mobility issues but as said before, it contains everything you need. Best of all is its setting. Just steps outside are restaurants, cafes, stores, and charm. Its a very short walk from the Vaparetto stop which opens up all of Venice for exploration although I had to force myself to leave this lovely neighborhood.

Arrival was trouble free thanks to Antonio meeting us at the Vaporetto and showing us to the apartment and walking through all of its features. He recommended restaurants in the area and we tried them all. The charm of the Dorsoudoro is apparent the second you step foot into it. The only reason I didn't rate this apartment with 5 stars is that it lacks a place to sit outside. A balcony or garden would be perfection but the outdoor cafe is only steps away. I highly recommend this property

Lovely owner and lovely location

  • 4 of 5

Antonio's house is in a great location, couldn't be better for us. And Antonio is most accommodating, pleasant, cheerful, a good guy. His house in Dorsoduro is a few steps from the charming Campo San Barnaba, close to churches, restaurants, shops, quiet yet walking distance to major tourist spots. The only vaporetto we took was to Caravaggio to see certain basilicae, esp Madonna dell'Orto with its Tintorettos, Bellinis. You'll need knees in good working order in the house on two floors. BTW, if you must leave Venice very early in the morning, the water taxi costs 120 euros.

Well Kept Apartment in Ideal Location

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I have been to Italy many times, but this was our first trip to Venice, and this apartment worked out perfectly for us. First, we thought the location was ideal. It is in a nice neighborhood well away from the main tourist area, but close enough that you can easily get to any of the main tourist attractions. We walked to Piazza S. Marco, and it was an easy walk, but you can also take the vaporetto. The apartment is just off a small square which has several nice little cafes and a number of good restaurants very close by. Just a few minutes away across a small bridge is a larger piazza which has a supermarket, a bakery, and many cafes. Next to the bridge is a greengrocer barge that ties up every day. There are also salumerias, pastry shops, wine shops, etc.

The apartment is somewhat small but it is very well organized and very well equipped with everything you might need. We did a good bit of cooking there and had everything we needed. There were even ice trays with ice in the freezer, which is something you don't find that often in apartments in Europe. The apartment was very clean and well cared for. It has a washing machine, which was a help, because we were it Italy for 3 weeks, and it also has a good, dependable Wi-Fi system.

Antonio sent some very thorough instructions on how to get there and met us at the vaporetto stop. He did a very good job of explaining to us where to find things in the neighborhood, such as the supermarket, ATM, etc.

We had a very enjoyable time in Venice, and the apartment worked out perfectly for us. We would definitely rent it again if we go back.

Cozy and comfortable house in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was extremely well-equipped and comfortable for such a tiny space. And actually the upstairs sleeping area is quite roomy, with a great view onto the street from the bedroom. Located in a quiet alley, yet just steps away from some of the best restaurants in Venice!
