This charming , exclusive apartment with all windows facing south overlooking a wide canal, is in a romantic, newly restored, typically Venetian Gothic palazzetto, just behind the famous Ca'd'Oro of which it is a copy in miniature. It is around the corner from the famous 18th Century Jesuit church with Domenico Rossi's extravagant interior of folds of damask rendered in coloured marble. Here you have the advantages of living in a historical listed building in the true Venice of the Venetians, and the use of a canoe for the unique experience of seeing Venice from the water.
From the apartment which is on the piano nobile up 20 steps you can take breakfast on the balcony overlooking the canal.
The central location of the apartment means that all Venetian amenities, theatres, swimming pool on the Guidecca, water sports on the Lido and all islands, Murano, Torcello etc are easily and cheaply accessible by vaporetto from the Fondamenta Nuova or the Ca'd'Oro vaporetto stop on the Gran Canal. Full instruction leaflet provided with tips and restaurant suggestions etc.
We also mention our other family property which is in Rome page 270 on this Holiday rental site; we would love you to come there as well!
Golf info.: There is the Venice Golf Club (Circolo Golf de Venezia Lido [Alberoni]) on telephone no. +39 41 731015 where the '39' is the country code for Italy. The price is 15€, per person per day at weekends and 10,€during the week. It is helpful if you bring your handicap certificate. The course is closed on Mondays.
Recent guests (July 2004) have said it is the best golf course and most pleasant clubhouse they have ever been to in Italy.

Enjoying the real Venice
The Attic apartment was the venue for a week, staying with our daughter and making full use of the two generous, comfortable bedrooms and living area. It is a fine historic building, sensitively restored and providing excellent facilities including a small kitchen and bathroom and generous wardrobe and storage space. The apartment was very well presented with good quality bedding, towels etc. The location is a particular plus point - being very near the Fondamenta Nuove, the first water-bus stop in Venice from Marco Polo airport and also convenient for trips to Murano, Burano etc. It is also an easy, short walk through to the shops and cafes on the Strada Nova and to the Grand Canal. Santa Caterina, however, is a quiet, residential oasis, away from the hustle and bustle of the crowded popular main tourist attractions and yet only about 20 minutes walk from St Mark's. Nearby is the stunning church of the Gesuiti. There is a good Co-op store and excellent restaurants including Ristorante Contemporaneo Ogio in Campo dei Gesuiti but our favourite, in Calle Priuli, was Al Fontego Dei Pescatori - the best sea bass ever! Altogether a fine place to stay and highly recommended.
That is very kind We must return the complments: these guests were a real pleasure to have
A wonderful place to stay
My wife, teenage kids, & I stayed in the gorgeous Piano Nobile for a week in August and we loved it. Loads of space for all of us. Beautiful, simple, & tastefully decorated & furnished to provide the experience of an elegant Venetian life. The view of the canals & the surrounding neighbourhood from the balcony is just stunning. It's also quiet; well away from the hurly-burly of Rialto & San Marco's, but still withing easy walking distance. An interesting collection of old & new books in the library shelves, and a baby grand piano (I Iearned to play - very badly - Eric Satie's Trois Gymnopaedie whilst the family slept). This is a perfect Venetian home, created by a kind and generous hostess who dealt with all communications in a straightforward, honest, and very amusing manner. I hope that we can visit again & soon.
That is very kind. As ever it worked both ways : these were charming easy Scottish guests appreciative of Venice and of the house which they left imp-ecc-able (Many thanks!)
The good news is, that they have said they would like to come back We can´t wait to have them
Home from Home
We have just stayed in the Piano nobile apartment of this charming palazzo for the thrid time and I cannot imagine a nicer way of spending 10 days in Venice. One is away from the terrible flow of people between the station and St Mark's; the view is perfect as one sits on the balcony watching the occasional barge, taxi or gondola rounding the bend from one canal to the other to the accompaniment of cries of "Oee!"; the rooms are spacious and pleasingly furnished; there is an excellent vegetable and street fruit stall nearby, a fisherman not too far away who comes with his daily catch and quite a reasonable little supermarket. The apartment has everything one needs: you just have to watch out not to knock your shins on the low, square glass tables in the sitting room!
We just love having this group and hope they will come again´n´again´n´again, they are always so happy with everything and that is of course what matters to us most
carnaval 2011, excellent séjour!
Nous avons loué l'appartement attic,pendant le carnaval, à 3, les 2 parents et une fille de 15 ans.
Nous avons trouvé l'appartement confortable, très propre, avec tout le nécessaire sur place pour passer un séjour agréable. Avec en plus le charme d'un palazzetto vénitien du XVe siècle, la vue en direct sur le petit canal sans cesse renouvelée et la délicate attention du prosecco-chocolat à l'arrivée!
Nous avons apprécié le calme reposant, à l'écart des flux touristiques amenés par le carnaval mais à proximité raisonnable des festivités.
Sur le plan pratique, il y a un petit supermarché à deux pas et plusieurs restaurants sympathiques et bon marché à proximité (la pizzeria la perla et surtout l'osteria Alla Vedova).
Une bonne adresse qui donne envie de revenir et que nous recommandons sans réserve!
Nous voudrions remercier ces invités particulièrement sensibles pour leur gentillesse. Nous avons été ravis de pouvoir les accueillir chez nous, nous sentons qu´ils ont apprécié la maison, son esthétique, son charme, et son atmosphère qui sort de l´ordinaire - au fond, c´est surtout cela que nous offrons
Nous espérons de les revoir souvent
Palazzetto, Cannaregio, La Serenissima.
There was space, elegance, an outlook and wine on the table, provided by the owners – all the things we need and love. Regardless of how much has been written and said about it, nothing and nobody can prepare one for Venice. The crowds I can bear, though I wish that people would dress with respect for so beautiful and fantastical a place. I have never left any other city so filled with regret, and eager to return – I hope to this winning Palazzetto.
These had to be among the most civilised guests we had, so appreciative of what Venice and our house conveys many thanks indeed , a presto we hope
Venice needs little introduction- among the guidebooks guests have recommended the new edition of Baedeker is high on the list

We loved the apartment it was soothing for both senses and soul ' (Vasel Hannover August 2007, attic)'Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour,Venise bien sûr,mais aussi le mezzanino, qui est d´un calme extraordinaire .
