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.

Charming Independent House in the Artist's Quarter

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights and Dorsoduro was a great location for sightseeing in Venice. Antonio met us in the square and took us to the house. He was very gracious and gave us tips on where to eat in Campo San Barnaba. We had everything we needed and it was helpful to have a washing machine since this was the midpoint of our trip.

We had a lovely time, walking the streets of Venice, shopping, visiting churches, museums, and anything that piqued our interest. We also attended a few classical music performances and enjoyed eating at the local restaurants. We had the opportunity of seeing how Venetians celebrate Halloween - the children were dressed in typical Halloween costumes and the shops gave treats to the children. Venice and the house were delightful.

Live like a Venetian in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Antonio's house in the Dorsoduro was the perfect location for our stay in Venice. Literally just a few steps away from Campo San Barnaba (where Katharine Hepburn famously fell in the canal in "Summertime"), we were able to do all the sightseeing we wanted during the day, then leave the throngs of tourists behind and enjoy a beautiful, quiet, Venetian neighborhood. Please note, "quiet" does not mean "boring." Rather, once the day began winding down, Campo San Barnaba would hum with Venetian life: locals enjoying an after-work glass of wine while their kids played nearby, people buying their groceries or walking their dog...very charming and lively, but decidedly not touristy.

A little boat moored in the Rio San Barnaba sold beautiful, fresh produce at extremely reasonable prices, and the supermarket just over the bridge in Campo Santa Margherita was also super convenient and affordable. We had many simple and delicious meals in the well-appointed kitchen.

The beds were comfortable, the bathroom was nice, and we loved coming home to our little Venice house every day. The wifi was very fast and the A/C in the bedroom kept us nice and cool, which was excellent, considering that it was very hot in Venice during our stay.

We ate a memorable dinner at Ai Quattro Feri, just around the corner from the apartment. Fresher-than-fresh seafood in a lovely setting. We also had a wonderful meal at Taverna San Trovaso, too, just a stone's throw from the apartment, near the Pensione Accademia. During the day, we'd stop into Cantina Gia' Schiavi for utterly delicious cicheti. We also ate gelato daily at Gelateria al Doge (in Campo Santa Margherita). I know this isn't really supposed to be a food review, but I mention all of these places to convey that there is an abundance of fantastic, quintessentially Venetian food right nearby.

The apartment is also very near the Accademia bridge, as well as the vaporetto #1 & 2 stop, so it's very convenient.

Dylan & Mirco handled check-in and communications, which was slightly confusing at first, as our prior communications had been through Antonio. They were both pleasant and helpful, with Dylan providing a very informative and thorough walk-through of the house during our check-in.

This was my 6th trip to Venice; I love this magical city and hope to return in the near future...I would recommend this house to anyone planning to visit, and hope to stay there again myself someday!

Clean, well supplied, great location

  • 3 of 5

Clean, well supplied and great location just off Campo San Barnaba. Lots of great restaurants nearby, supermarket in the neighborhood, and 200 yards from Ca Rezzonico vepparetto stop.

Kitchen not air conditioned but upstairs was good. Could use a table and chair in living room.

Initial disaster when our connection picked up other tourists by mistake and left us waiting at the vaparetto stop for 20+ minutes was not an optimum start.

A good economical choice in Doroduso!

Dorsoduro interesting experience

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was nice enough, with good facilities and in a lovely area within easy walking distance of many of the iconic tourist attractions. What we found very off-putting was the person who used the front step to sleep on and leave an unsavoury mess each morning, which we had to step over. We realise that this is a difficult situation but it was a bit unnerving. Overall our experience in Venice was very enjoyable.

Owner's Response: Dear Andrew, thanks for your kind review. I am sorry about the person who, for the period of your stay, slept outside your door. We finally got the police intervention and definitely solved the problem. My best regards Mirco

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.
