Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Dorsoduro - Ca' Delle Vele - 319
Sleeps 6, 1 double bed, 4 single beds
Recently restored using the highest quality materials into a masterpiece of cool sophistication, Ca' Delle Vele ('House of the Sails') is a loft-style apartment featuring highly contemporary design in neutral linen tones, anthracite greys, polished woods and shades of seasoned leather.
Also found on this floor is a well-planned and fully equipped kitchen, , a cloakroom with wc and wash basin (off which is a handy laundry with a washing machine and a separate tumble dryer) and an elegant double bedroom plus an en suite bathroom with shower and contemporary fittings.
Sleeping six, air-conditioned and covering two floors, the apartment has a beautifully bright ground floor open-plan living/dining room (measuring a whopping 50 square metres approx.), dominated by two enormous picture windows with the most stunning canal views over towards Palladio's Church of the Redentore on the island of Giudecca. This main room is furnished with super-comfortable, oversized sofas set against warm wooden flooring, attractively weathered beams and whitewashed walls which emphasise the ambient light and on which sophisticated paint techniques have been employed to recreate the ever-changing watery horizons right outside your windows.
A spiral staircase from the main room leads up to a wooden beamed 'library' (with a 'secret' swivelling door!) on the landing of the first floor - a super little haven affording further privacy, if so required, to those staying in the two further double bedrooms also found on this level (each with two single beds and an en-suite bathroom - - one with a bath and separate shower and the other with shower). And from here, access the 'jewel in the crown' of the apartment - a fabulous terrace with retractable awning for sunny days and the perfect spot for budding (or established!) artists wishing to capture the ever-changing panorama as a moment of their stay.
