Dorsoduro Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Private entrance, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room, kitchen

Our home away from home is a charming apartment on the 1st (american 2nd) floor with private entry from a sunny alley that ends on a quiet canal. The house was renovated with commitment and an eye on details, paying particular attention to keeping the Venetian atmosphere. The high quality and tasteful furnishings, a mixture of original Venetian handmade furniture and some modern classics invite you to relax and enjoy. Unfortunately, we cannot make use of our loved hideaway all year round, so we offer the possibility to spend an unforgettable time in the authentic and romantic surrounding of our second home. The air conditioning and central heating provide you a pleasant stay both in summer and in winter.

Its strategic but quiet location makes this house the ideal base for sightseeing or taking trips to the lagoon.

The private entry hall downstairs welcomes our guests with a typically Venetian marble floor with a red and white checkerboard pattern.

Access to the first floor and the remaining rooms is via a marble staircase. The spacious entry area leads to a fully equipped kitchen with electric cooker, dishwasher and washing machine. The ample living/dining room with parquet flooring is decorated in a classical-contemporary style, and invites you to relax on a cosy couch and Le Corbusier armchairs.

Games and toys for children, books, a DVD player, a TV and an iMac promise you entertainment and relaxation.

Enjoy the incomparable evening mood with open windows and listen to the unique sounds of Venice.

The two elegant bedrooms on the first floor are equipped with real parquet Doussie. The original Venetian furniture was designed and produced by Guarise.

The master bedroom, decorated with light-coloured fabrics, represents the romantic mood of past times.

A Louis XVI style double bed, gilded bedside tables and Murano chandeliers create an atmosphere of pure luxury..

The second bedroom with views of a typical “corte” is equipped in Roccoco retro-style and decorated with Venetian fabrics.

High quality mattresses as well as fly screens allow you a good night’s sleep.

Both bathrooms have shower, WC and bidet and are equipped with lovely glass mosaics in classical, gold accentuated colours.

Suitable for people who appreciate a spacious, well maintained and beautifully equipped apartment for their stay in bella Venezia.

You are booking with the owner directly and not with an agent.

Welcome at our venetian house!

Perfect location, well appointed, just wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was exactly as described. Our family loved it. It is comfortable, tastefully furnished, all appliances work as expected including internet, washing machine etc.

The shopping cart got a lot of use and was definitely needed. With teen boys you always need food available and the market was very nearby (we used Conad on the Zattere) and had a great selection-wonderful meats & cheeses for snacking. Great Italian beer & wine too.

And you can't go wrong with the restaurant list from Veronica. That alone is worth the price of the stay! So many bad and touristy restaurants. You won't find those on her list. We just loved the one a few doors down, Al Profeta-wonderful food and service just a few steps away.

We ended up coming back to Venice at the end of our trip for two nights and stayed in Santa Croce. It made us appreciate even more the Dorsoduro location. We were novices in Venice and I did spend a lot of time researching but it's hard to really know until you're there. After traveling all over Venice I truly think the Dorsoduro area is the perfect place to stay. Easy to get around from, and by going to the San Basilio stop you can avoid the No 1 vaperreto which is always crowded during the day but at night you can jump on and enjoy the grand canal all lit up.

Don't hesitate to stay here. Not only was the place great but working with Veronica was easy and her greeting service works perfectly. Staying here means no vacation horror stories only plenty of happy adventures!

Beautiful apt., quiet and close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended. The property was perfect....very clean with nice furniture and a great kitchen. It is located in a very quiet part of Dorsoduro, close to museums, markets and the vaporetto. Veronica and Michael provided excellent communications, a great list of restaurants and Club House Venezia greeted us promptly with keys and access to apt.. Loved these restaurants - Oniga, Algiubagio and Al Profeta! Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We are four friends who at the end of a cruise decided to spend a few days in Venice. We had a fantastic stay in this apartment. Everything about our visit was wonderful. The apartment is well equipped and the location is perfect and so quiet. The beds are really comfortable, showers perfect and kitchen and sitting/ dining room great. We loved the Calle, even getting our feet wet on our first morning was fun, we soon bought the feet covers in Santa Marguerite ( yes there were "wellies" but our feet are big! ) The meet and greet team were very good, meeting us from our Water Taxi in Campo St Barnaba. Being very close to Santa Marguerite and campo St Barnaba made for a perfect stay. Water buses are available after a very short walk to St Basilio or Ca' Rezzonico. It was easy to dispose of Sunday morning rubbish in Campo St Barnaba. We have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and hope to stay again very soon.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our family of two adults and two teenagers loved this apartment. It is not far from two lovely piazzas but feels way off the beaten path. Definitely not touristy! It’s located at the end of a street that dead-ends at a quiet canal. The apartment was spacious and the photos represented it well. Kitchen was easy to work in, with a big fridge. The clothes washer was a godsend and our teenagers got a kick that we hung out our laundry to dry on a line that went across the street to the building on the other side. It made it easy to spot our apartment from down the street! Spacious bathrooms and good internet. We will definitely come back!

Owner's Response: Dear family, thanks for your kind words! I'm happy you enjoyed your stay and your children loved the laundry line which is one of the most photographed attractions in Venice :-) Greetings to all of you, Veronica

Lovely Apartment in Venice

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and finding the apartment/meeting with the person to check in was quite simple. There were two vaporetto stops by the apartment- one was straight down the street (Ca'Rezzonico) and the other was over a bridge and a few turns away (S Basilio)- both quite easy to find.

There were several restaurants close by and I wrote the best ones in the guest book in the apartment.

All of the amenities- dishwasher, washer, and wifi worked great. The apartment was quite clean and it almost felt as though someone really lived there- it had a home feeling about it. I would surely recommend this apartment to others and do hope that if we go back to Venice that we are able to stay here again!

Dorsoduro, surrounded by the Grand Canal and the Canale di Giudecca, is historic Venice’s sunniest and most charming neighborhood. The “Sestiere” contains a number of smaller typically Venetian residential houses on quaint canals as well as historic palazzi and monumental religious buildings.

Romantic alleys and squares lined with boutiques, galleries and antiques shops invite you to stroll. Various shops selling everyday commodities create a perfect infrastructure.

Despite its many advantages, Dorsoduro is not yet as crowded as San Marco with its world famous piazza or San Polo with the Rialto Bridge. It has remained a quiet residential area, popular amongst locals.

The atmosphere in this neighborhood is artistic and relaxed, due to the university Ca’Foscari and the range of art galleries and exhibitions. Thanks to the strategic location, all sights can be accessed by foot in no time.

Other Activities: Fitness center
