About the property

Conveniently located, comfortable, quiet, tastefully decorated, renovated

Studio romantic, sunny, in the heart of Dorsoduro, near Campo Santa Margherita in the heart of the student district of Venice. Wi-Fi included.

The studio has windows on three sides, a loft with queen size bed, air conditioning, very nice, quiet and with a strong character. I lived there as a student!

The studio has a private garden, wonderful for breakfast or just for a relaxing overnight. Open space on two levels, spacious, sunny, pleasant.

We also offer Rome and France! All photos on http: // www. flickr. com / photos / 12692300 @ N05 / sets /

The area is very lively: a student district with shops, restaurants and attractions. All services are very close: banks, supermarket, bar, ATM, pharmacies. Museums and tourist attractions nearby (Accademia, San Rocco). Very pleasant walks in the area. Well connected to public transport and close (5/6 minutes walk) to Piazzale Roma, 10/12 minutes from the station.

Dorsoduro is one of the six sestieri of Venice. December 12, 2007 were 15 586 inhabitants (including the Giudecca and 4763 to 1535 Sacca Fisola) .The name comes from its stable ground (literally 'hard back'), less muddy than elsewhere. It is bordered to the north by the sestiere of Santa Croce and San Polo, Rio Ca 'Foscari and the Rio Malcanton; to the east by the Grand Canal; South includes the Giudecca Canal and the island of the same name which is administratively attached the sestiere while possessing a civic numbering. Dorsoduro is connected to the sestiere of San Marco from the Accademia Bridge.

Dorsoduro begins with the Punta della Dogana, which takes its name from the fact that here was the duty of Venice. the last area recovered the area stretching between the sea and the monastery (in practice, where today the basilica of Santa Maria della Salute).

Beyond the Grand Canal, you can see St. Mark's, but the only way to get there, walk east across the Accademia Bridge. Sestiere Dorsoduro is where the greatest museums are concentrated. The main museum is the Galleria dell 'Accademia, created by Giambattista Piazzetta painter in 1750 and transferred these buildings by Napoleon in 1807. Also important the Peggy Guggenheim Collection of modern and contemporary art, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni also remains once deprived of American patron and Museum of Contemporary Art, Punta della Dogana Francois Pinault Foundation, led to the structure of Palazzo Grassi, also arise in 2009Qui Ca 'Rezzonico, eighteenth century Venetian Museum Ca' Dario, infamous to the tragic end many of its owners and the Scuola Grande dei Carmini. the most important churches are the Church of Santa Maria della Salute, Church of Santa Maria del Rosario said the Gesuati and the church of San Nicolò.

You can also visit the squero di San Trovaso and Campo Santa Margherita, a place of rendezvous for students and Venetians.

When you arrive at the apartment we ask you for cash payment of the "Tassa di Soggiorno" that the Municipality of Venice has recently established for private rental apartment (currently 1. 5 euros / person / night). You will receive a receipt for this payment.

Got lost for over 2 hours when arrived as the map and written directions did not help.

  • 3 of 5

From the get go, was disappointed. Directions and map not helpful and was lost for 2.5 hours. Finally, the woman who was to check me in found me. I was unaware that I needed to carry 75 lbs of luggage up and down multiple bridges with steps. The woman was unable to help. I hurt my back and right hip doing so.

When I finally arrived at the flat, there was nothing available to eat. There was only a handful towel and bath towel. One set, and no washcloth. When I was able to buy food, all the dishes were too high for me to reach. I could not navigate the winding steps to get to the upper bed, so I had to sleep on a twin mattress in the "living room". As a single traveler in a foreign country, a horrible experience and would not recommend this flat to anyone who can't carry suitcases over steps over multiple bridges. The only saving grace was Jacqueline who found me and arranged for a young man to carry my bags through the people mover to the port.

Very disappointed. The first time I've not had a good experience with a "Home Away" rental!!

Exactly what we were looking for

  • 3 of 5

This was a lovely quaint apartment located within 20-30 min walking of most areas on the island. It had everything you needed with the exception of an ironing board:-)

Hosted by owners father who was very welcoming and made sure we were settled before he left.

The room has A/C and a large ceiling fan which was needed for our stay and made the apartment comfortable.

Ideal for what we wanted and would go back again.

Italian perfection

The apartment location was perfect, beautiful 15 minute to San Marco Square. The apartment was clean, cozy and comfortable. We loved it; felt nice to come home to a real home while on vacation.

Great location for quieter experience

  • 4 of 5

A wonderful family run apartment. We were greeted by father who came bearing coffee, fancy cookies, bread, oranges, grapes, milk and jam. It is on 3rd floor for us Americans, 2nd to Europeans. A very small space that has been beautifully designed to make it feel much bigger. A spiral staircase goes up to sleeping loft above galley kitchen. Bath is tiny with washer and toilet nearly head to head. Side saddle sit down is awkward at first, but not a huge deal. I feel this is an apartment for younger single or couple. And by young, it is all about your health and mind. I am 60 plus and loved it. The spiral stairs may be difficult or off putting for some; bath as well.

Views are nice to courtyard below and over roofs to church towers. Space is clean and decorated with eclectic style. 21st century hippie? Being of the original time period, this was nice look for me. Lots of books and interesting art.

It is less than 10 min walk to bus and train. 3 bridges to cross. 2 mins or less to Sant Marguarita, a lively gathers place for all ages, mostly people of the city. Restaurants, from pizza to quite elegant, gelato, hardware store, inexpenxsive gift shops and a nice market are all there. A flea market pops up nearly every day.

There is university nearby, so lots of young people. Great neighborhoods with all manner of shopping and just visual treats abound. San Marco is maybe 20 min walk. Rialto, same.

I like this end of the Island. Quiet and still enough places to take care of needs.

Great neighborhood

  • 3 of 5

This apartment is well-located for seeing Venice, yet avoiding most of the crowds. The fridge was stocked with goodies for us when we arrived. Communication with the owner went well.

Meeting the owner's father on the way to the rental did not work well for us. I would strongly suggest asking the owner to arrange a water taxi for you, which would take you to the apartment. As far as the "private garden" mentioned in the description, all we found was a garden area in the main courtyard surrounded by a wrought iron fence around an area of wild vegetation. The apartment was basic and funky, but in need of upgrading. The twin beds on the first floor consisted of a mattress and box spring on the floor. The curtains were somewhat torn and stained. The throw pillows on the beds were stuffed with old wool blankets and torn. The bedspreads needed cleaning,the shower door was off its hinge, the refrigerator worked but was very old. The adorable spiral staircase you see in the photos was rickety. The water drainage from the AC emptied into a 5 gallon jug which we had to empty every day. The stove is a two burner, on top of the counter, gas burner and there is a small toaster oven. The only place to sit in the apartment were the twin beds on the floor or a few wooden folding chairs. The building itself was authentic and attractive. We do not plan to return.
