About the property

Elegant and quiet canal view apart in the most charming Venice

Ask the Owner for a complete brochure.

On the 1st high floor of an historical building in the heart of the most beautiful and elegant part of Venice, we propose you a tasty furnished and comfortable apartment named Ardesia.

Bordered by nice, quiet canals and bridges, Ardesia apart proposes refined, bright and quiet ambiences, elegant features and, overall, a charming window’s canal view.

Composed by a nice living area with dining table and open-plan fully equipped kitchen, a double, a doble/twin bedroom and 2 complete bathrooms, Ardesia can comfortably host up to 4 adults.

It is a perfect getaway both for visiting the whole Venice without wasting precious time with transfers (just 5 min. walking to Rialto’s Bridge, 2 min to the closest waterbus) and, whne back, resting and relaxing enjoying its charming venetian views.

Its fully equipped kitchen allow guests to easily and quickly prepare any kind of meals, better if using fresh products of local tradition that they can buy at Rialto’s open-air market, just few minutes walking.

Refined particulars as ceiling beams and parquet floors, as well as a really complete equipement let guest’s stay really pleasant and relaxing.

Above and Beyond

  • 5 of 5

I am writing this review to praise the efforts of Andrea, the owner/manager of this property. It may seem strange that this is a review of her much-appreciated response to a crisis and not of the property, but as you will see this is warranted ! The morning of the day we were to arrive in Venice and at this apartment we received an email from Andrea that the apartment could not be made available to us because of plumbing problems caused by the previous tenant the day before and not easily fixed by a plumber. She made the difficult, time-consuming, but successful effort to find another apartment in Dorsoduro ( a lovely and completely satisfactory apartment) for us. We felt this was truly Above and Beyond what we could have expected and are most appreciative. Thank you, Andrea!

Perfect apartment for 2 Couples

  • 5 of 5

Very nice apartment in a quiet section in Venice away from the crowds but still close enough to walk to everything.

Very clean and updated apartment. Andrea was great to rent from, very responsive and had Julia meet us at the central bus drop off to show us the way to the apartment.

Lovely accomodation excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family (4 adults) had the pleasure of staying at this magnificent apartment. We really appreciated the location: hearth of Dorsioduro district, elegant and quiet area of Venice, close to everything, perfect for visiting but not heavily touristic yet. We enjoyed pleasant walkings to everywhere, exploring and discovering new charming paths every time. The apart is quiet, finely furnished and pefectly clean: kitchen practical and fully equipped, comfortable beds in large bedrooms and magnificent canal views from every window. We couldn’t find nothing better. Excellent stay.

Nice apartment in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

My family of four (including two teenagers) had a lovely time in Venice. Dorsoduro is a quiet, peaceful part of the city, and this apartment is very well located on the Canal, in Campo San Pantalon. Around the corner from the best bakery in the city, close to many excellent restaurants, and markets. The apartment itself was comfortable for our short visit and very clean. It didn't appear that it had been thoroughly checked prior to our arrival however, as there were no garbage bags, and the paper towels/dishwashing liquid hadn't been restocked. In addition, a reading light in each of the bedrooms was not functioning. None of this affected our stay. I only mention it, so the owner knows. We did like having the moka pot for coffee (we just bought our first one)!! The check in/check out process was easy and the person very nice. Very good stay overall.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, I really thank u for your kind Review. We will surely treasure your notes to improve. Anyway let a shortly note to me too: the most part of items u indicate as missing are always on stock in the apart. In fact just outside the apart there is a small storage room where u can find toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, soap, hand or dish/clothes washer detergent, light bulbs and many other useful items. I will instruct welcoming team to inform guests about it and encourage them to ask for if something is left. Again I really thank u for your useful notes and really kind Review.

Lovely apart perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Looking for a no massive touristic area we found this lovely property. Quick and freindly deal, we arrived and found the apart exactly as advertised. It is a tasty featured apart with large ambiences and, overall, a charming canal view from the living’s windows (and from the second bedroom’s too). We slept in the master bedroom our 2 childs (13 and 11) in the second twin bedroom (they loved to sleep in a canal view bedroom). The apart is extremely quiet, good quality and comfortable beds. The 2 bathrooms are pretty new and well appointed. Everything was perfectly clean and working (Wi-Fi included, the most important for my husband and childs). The kitchen (the most important for me) is wide and convenient as well as the dining area. We had many agreable meals and saved lot of money. Service was ok too, quick and efficent. The location is exactly what we were looking for: at the same time no massive touristic but absolutely comfortable for visiting. This accomodation let us feel real ventian sensations with nothing give up. Definitely recomended.

Canal view, comfort, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Looking for a no massive touristic, quiet and charming area allowing us (4 adults) a pleasant stay and a perfect getaway for sight-seeing. Due to its position, features and good Reviews we selected this property. It is 100% corresponding to what is proposed. The position is perfect as it is in the real Venice (no massive touristic area where u would feel like in a theme park), but absolutely comfortable for visiting (we had daily shopping at Rialto’s open-air market just 5-8 min of pleasant walking) as the Grand Canal and Saint-Mark is really close. Furthermore the location is near Campo Santa Margherita (only place in Venice with quiet night-life with its open-air and live music cafès and restaurants) and Campo San Barnaba (the most beautiful small venetian square). Surroundings are faboulous. The apart is simply perfect as it has refined furnitures and it is fully equipped. Overall the kitchen, large and perfectly furnished with everything you can need to cook and have meals. Comfortable bedrooms and 2 nice full bathrooms. What we also really appreciated was the quietness and the nice canal view we had from its windows letting us feel in the real venice. Finally we had a perfect stay with self-catering meals, easy sight-seeing, good restaurants and few agreable night-life. This is the accomodation I would reccomend to my friends.

On the border between Dorsoduro and San Polo venetian districts, hearth of Venice. Just 5-7 min walking to reach Rialto's Bridge and its wellknown open-air market, 2 minutes to reach the closest waterbus stop on the Grand Canal (San Tomà stop).

Even if close to everything the area is not a massive tourist target yet and still preserves flavours and sensations of times gone by.

Easy walking access both from/to car-bus terminal and train station, less than 10 minutes. If u arrive to the cruise terminal just catch the "Peoplemover", small electric train that will bring u to the car/bus terminal, then less than 10 min walking. Guests can always choose to catch the waterbus Line1 or 2 and get off at San Tomà stop.

In the neraby there is Campo Santa Margherita with its open-air live music cafes and restaurants.
