ROMANTIC LUXURIOUS COURTYARD APARTMENT

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Dorsoduro - Ca' Masena

Unusually spacious romantic one bedroom courtyard apartment

We are delighted to announce that Ca' Masena, our beautiful restored courtyard apartment has been selected for Alastair Sawday's Special Places website. They 'reject the bland, the corporate and the impersonal' & 'select only the most special places and owners'. You’ll find it literally moments from Zattere with its stunning views across the water to Giudecca Island. The furnishings enhance the apartment’s character combinig classical style with contemporary comfort. Exposed beams & subtle terrazzo flooring give a traditional Venetian finish while the Italian chandeliers, original oil paintings and textiles add more than a hint of luxury. The apartment's spacious lounge has sofa beds & comfortable seats. There is a home cinema system with ipod dock & WiFi access is available throughout. The double bedroom looks out onto the delightful paved courtyard which can be reached through a well-appointed kitchen. Enjoy your breakfast in the sun while planning another wonderful day in Venice.

Ca'Masena: Our apartment is ideal as a romantic retreat for couples or small families.Both the living and dining area seats up to six people, so enjoy dinner parties with friends. For times of relaxation play music from our selection of CDs. There is a home cinema system with an internet linked TV, a Blue Ray/DVD player, 5.1 surround sound & ipod dock. WiFi access is available throughout. Watch films from our selection of DVDs or television...that is if you can tear yourself away from the delights of the city! We have aimed to create a luxurious setting in which to enjoy your stay.There are two comfortable sofa beds in the sitting room. One is a double bed while the other is a single bed. You will find many extra items for your use, which include worldwide electrical adaptors; umbrellas; guidebooks. There is a selection of literature,cook books and CDs for your enjoyment. Our pretty courtyard is filled with terracotta pots where we have jasmine, oleanders and even a lemon tree growing! There is also a pot of herbs growing near the kitchen door which you can use for your cooking. Included in your stay are towels and bed linen and all utilities as well as unlimited internet use.

Shopping: We are just around the corner from one of the few Venetian supermarkets, 2 minutes walk away. Buying food couldn't be easier. Or be more adventurous and go to the famous floating barge crammed with fruit and vegetables just off San Barnaba. There is the daily food market in nearby Campo Santa Margherita and various other small food outlets scattered around where you can buy meats, cheese etc. This will be a more interesting although challenging shopping experience than the supermarket! You will find many antique and gift shops in Dorsoduro, notably around San Barnaba and the Peggy Guggenheim Museum/Salute area.

Location: You could not be in a better location as we are situated in one of the most desirable parts of Venice by the Zattere promenade where you can take your strolls along with the Venetians. The water bus stops 'San Basilio' and 'Zattere' are only a few minutes away, from which you can start your journeys for outings further afield, including perhaps a day trip to the outer islands. This area is the centre of the Arts in Venice and is richly populated with Museums, Galleries, Churches and Historic buildings.

We are sure that our Venetian retreat will provide you with a truly pleasurable experience.

Ca'Masena is very well situated, being near a vaporetto stop and within walking distance of the main sites. It is well equipped and proved admirably cool and quiet for a stay in Venice in the heat of August. The owner provided very good customer service and I would not hesitate to recommend this property to a friend.

The apartment was set in dorsoduro which is the quieter part of Venice but near enough to the main areas. It had very good restraunts nesrby as well as a supermarket and a very convenient water bus stop. The apartment was spacious with the added bonus of a court yard which is great for eating out and relaxing, you wouldn't believe you were so near the tourist areas.Overall an ideal place to stay.

The best place in Venice

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 07-Aug-2013

Recently my husband and I have spent for the second time a fortnight in Ca’ Masena. And just like the first time, the year before, we were again very enthusiastic about our stay in this apartment.

Because Venice has become for us a favourite holyday destination we have been in other apartments too but we think Ca’ Masena is absolutely the best place to stay.

Probably that is thanks to the good, comfortable setting and the very favourable location of this apartment.

Ca’ Masena is tastefully decorated, with love and care, and has all mod cons.

Another big plus is that it is situated on the ground flour and moreover that it has a nice garden with terrace.

This gives you the nice opportunity to start the day with breakfast outside in your own garden and later on, after a long and tiring day, to sit and relax there.

The location of the apartment is ideal for a visit to Venice: it is only a few meters to the Zattere promenade along the Giudecca Canal, in the pleasant area Dorsoduro.
Therefore many places of interest are within walking distance, such as the Gallerie dell’ Accademia, Ca’ Rezzonico, Guggenheim, etc..

Also the direct proximity of two vaporetto (boat) stops is very convenient.
From there you can reach all the Venice sights in an easy and quick way; also the supermarket (Billa) is only on a minute walking distance.

Furthermore it is a wonderful place to have a quiet walk in the evening and to enjoy the Venetian evening views.

The contact with Suzette, the owner, is always very pleasant; she is highly helpful and kind.
She has also cared for extensive and clear information about practical matters in the apartment and also for information about Venice, like travel guides and literature about the city, etc..

In short: we cannot imagine a better place to stay in Venice than Ca’ Masena and warmly recommend it to everybody.

Excellent location!

We decided to book an apartment rather than staying in a hotel so that we could experience Venice in a more authentic way and what a lovely experience it was! The water bus from the airport drops you off a few minutes walk from the apartment (Zattere stop) and we were met by the 'apartment manager' (a company who look after the house and meet guests on arrival, check you have towels etc.) who showed us the apartment and all of its amenities. The apartment was very Venitian, down a little alley, with water at the end - just what we wanted!
There are some lovely restaurants within a short walk of the apartment and a shop about 2mins walk away - ideal for buying some wine!
The apartment has everything you need and gives you the space that you wouldn't have in a hotel.
We were able to walk to all the main sights from the apartment and didn't need to get any water buses, however, on the second day we decided to do island-hopping and a day pass on the buses was ideal!
The courtyard in the apartment was lovely for having breakfast in the morning and was even more special to us as that's where I was proposed to on the first morning - a VERY big shock after 11years!
Lovely break away. Would definitely go back to Venice and would definitely stay at Ca' Masena again!

I am writing this review of Ca' Masena while lounging in its sundrenched courtyard, the sounds of church bells and a neighbor's beautiful opera music in the background. The apartment is located down a long narrow stone alley, the entry of which opens up to a magical Disneyland-like scene: the vast Zattere promenade that looks across to Guidecca Island. With few tourists, the area is instead full of children on their way to school, Italians on their way to work, trash-collection boats and laundry boats and water taxis gliding this way and that. At once you feel you're experiencing the "real" Venice. It's close (fifteen-minute walk) yet feels so far from the hoards of tourists centered around Rialto and San Marco and even the Academia area. There is an abundance of wonderful restaurants, cafes, and trattorias within walking distance as well as a grocery store right next door to the alley. The apartment is spacious, comfortable, and beautifully appointed, with this lovely courtyard just off the kitchen. The ambience is "old world charm" (wood beams, beautiful bedroom satin linens, chandeliers, oil paintings of Venice created by the owner's husband, velvet couches and pillows) juxtaposed with "modern" (chic, stainless steel appliances and fixtures, air conditioning, surround sound, iPod cradle , attractive dinner and kitchenware, large flat-screen TV, WiFi, nice selection of CDs and videos.) We didn't use the dishwasher or washing machine but appreciated that they were available. We also were pleased with the large selection of Venice guide books and maps available for guests to use while there. Communication with Suzette, the owner, was outstanding, starting with the first communication, then booking and arrival processes, and an email checking in while we were there. The apartment is exactly as presented on line, and our expectations were not only met but exceeded. We eagerly anticipate our return to Ca' Masena.

Ca'Masena is situated in Dorsoduro one of the most desirable areas in Venice just off the magnificent Zattere waterfront and only a couple of minutes walk away from the San Basilio & Zattere Vaporetti. We are a 2 minute walk away from the supermarket. It is also within easy reach of other transport links such as Piazzale Roma and Ferrovia.

Stroll along the Zattere with its amazing views across to Giudecca Island and Palladio's wonderful Redentore church. Keep going and you will reach La Salute which marks the point where the Grand Canal meets the Bacino di San Marco, from which you can see the whole expanse of the lagoon. You will not forget such a moment in a hurry! Also local to us is the Guggenheim and Punta della Dogana Art Museums both near the Accademia Bridge. Not far away is Campo Barnaba, with its famous floating vegetable ‘shop’, and a bit further on is Campo Santa Margherita one of the liveliest squares in Venice with cafes, restaurants and a daily food market. Dorsoduro, the heart of the Arts for Venice indeed has it all!
