Lovely and stylish two bedroom and two bathroom in Dorsoduro

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Venice city centre - Lovely apartment in Dorsoduro

Self catered luxury apartment with air conditioning, DSL, cana views,

An outstanding apartment in a fabulous location (just off the Zattere) and justifiably one of our TOP properties, lightly renovated and updated in 2016 and with great views over the ‘Rio De San Sebastiano’ canal - a riot of Venetian colour and character in the Dorsoduro district.

Ca’ San Sebastiano’s position near the vaporetto stop of ‘San Basilio’ (with no bridges to cross in between!) allows for easy and hassle-free sightseeing while its closeness to the ‘Stazione Marittima’ makes it a perfect choice for a memorable stay in a truly authentic area of Venice if arriving or departing this port by cruise ship.

Successfully marrying the old and characterful with the lastest design concepts, Ca’ San Sebastiano’s spacious and beautifully decorated main living area features high ceilings, exposed beams, canal views, air-conditioning and internet connection. It comprises a sitting and dining area with plenty of comfortable seating plus a modern and well-equipped kitchen with cool terrazzo flooring, unusual polished plaster finishes and matt granite work surfaces all contributing to its smart and highly contemporary appeal.

The two air-conditioned bedrooms (also with canal views and quiet at night) are bright, sunny, fresh and appealing - a restful and romantic master with built-in wardrobe and 4-poster bed, and a charming second bedroom with elegantly attired twin beds. A bathroom with bathtub sits directly opposite the master bedroom while the second bathroom (with shower and twin wash hand basins) is en-suite to the twin bedroom for added privacy. Both bathrooms feature high quality fittings and beautiful coloured glass ‘tesserae’ mosaic, specially designed for the apartment.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our stay in Venice was amazing and it was made even more fantastic by the beautiful apartment we stayed in. It was immaculate, beautifully furnished and so conveniently positioned to explore the city and lovely surrounding area. We were greeted by water taxi which was arranged by views on Venice and then by Christina who showed us around the apartment and explained all we needed to know. We loved our stay and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND views on Venice and in particular our apartment Ca' San Sabastiano! Thank you

Simply Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Not a day goes by when I don’t think of our extended stay here this summer. It was all we’d hoped for and more.

Exactly as shown in the pictures (with the addition of a TV!), immaculately clean and with good linens and towels, Filippo has done a masterly job of designing and equipping the apartment for super-comfortable and easy living. All our questions and arrangements for our stay were handled promptly and with a helpful, easy charm. Airy and spacious, light floods the bedrooms and bathrooms in the morning while the bedrooms and main room enjoy the afternoon and evening sun. The large windows with low sills in the main room have great views of the canal and all its bustling activity. The neighbourhood is lively (but not crowded) by day yet very peaceful by night – for us it was the perfect combination. Lie in late and listen to Venice waking up or take a siesta as the bells gently chime and the sun on the canal flickers on the bedroom ceiling. Bliss!

We cooked and ate with ease and found the basics left for us – tea, coffee, sugar, soaps, shower gels, loo rolls etc. handy for settling in before we managed to get to the shops on arrival. Minutes to some great restaurants and even less to Billa supermarket (open 7 days a week) and to a friendly greengrocer, bakery and wine shop (take your empty plastic bottles to be filled with Prosecco and some lovely reds for very few euros).

Not an area of gondola traffic jams, this is a Venice of dialect and of families taking to their boats for a day at the beach, delivery boats (delivering everything!) and of water taxis delivering awe-struck visitors. And so much to do right on the doorstep – we strolled along the Zattere waterfront with its stunning vistas, benches, restaurants, joggers and gelateria and visited the very local churches of San Nicolo dei Mendicoli – (featured in the film ‘Don’t Look Now’), Angelo Raffaele (in the novel ‘Miss Garnet’s Angel’) and San Sebastiano, which has more important works by Veronese than anywhere else in the world. 5-10 minutes gentle walk and we were at Ca’ Rezzonico on the Grand Canal (Museum of 18th Century Art) and about 10 will bring you to the the Accademia Gallery/Bridge with its iconic views (or longer if you stop for a spritz or an ice cream en route!)

Our last day was indeed a sad one and, needless to say, we would return in a heartbeat!

Great !

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Ca San Sebastiano : ideally located, cosy, clean, with a great view on the canal. Simply magical !

Our 2 kids enjoyed their room very much and the global property as well. Like in a movie, they said.

We were very well welcomed at arrival, with very good advice on what to visit, where to eat, etc. Checking out was also very simple.

In a nutshell : we definitely endorse Ca San Sebastiano !! For sure we'll come again to Venice in a couple of years.

A French Parisian family.

Large comfortable apartment in Venice

  • 5 of 5

Rented this 2b/2b apartment for our family of 4. It was lovely and spacious. The Internet was great ( critical for us). It was just as billed and exactly represented in the pictures. The grocery store is a short block away and they even provide a rolling shopping bag, which helped, because we ate in for 2 of 3 meals per day. The kitchen was fully functional, though no real oven ( nice gas stove, and microwave). Loved the neighborhood, quiet in general: dorsoduro is definitely off the main paths for tourists. There were restaurants and the zattere was a nice place to walk. We did walk everywhere since the island is just not that big. Valentina met us and she gave me a perfect map of Venice, and marked restaurants and grocery locations. I was very prepared with my own travel maps, apps, books, but this map was all I needed for us to navigate, as it had all the boat stops noted, too. We had two 95 degree days, and the air conditioning saved us.

Used Rick Steve's books and audio files.

I would highly recommend this apartment for Venice.

Great stay in Dorsoduro

  • 4 of 5

A well equipped and very comfortable apartment. There was plenty of space for four people. The staff were helpful on our arrival and prompt for our departure. I would recommend the apartment to our friends. A great location away from the Grand Canal but within easy access of everything.

Wonderful get away to Venice!

  • 5 of 5

The property is better than the photos can depict. Great customer service. It was great to have someone waiting for us with a smile at the vaperetto stop. Cute location, convenient to all our needs. During our stay it got up to 100 degrees, and the second bedroom didn't have air conditioning. The fan worked fine for the children. The AC worked very well in the common room and the master bedroom. We would stay there again, if in Venice. Loved the restaurant recommendations and a grocery store is very near by. Fast internet. Charming!

Felt like a local not a tourist

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this apt .it was very clean with everything you would need The apt was in a great area with lots of local restaurants close by and a large supermarket Loved the views over the canal with the local transport going by.it was only a 20 min walk to the centre of Venice.it didn't feel like the centre of Venice full of tourists but a quiet backwater but still with enough facilities. We stayed 3 nights and never used any of the transport we walked everywhere!! Apart from the airport waterbus which we caught locally .The apt is up a couple of flights of stairs only difficult with a large suitcase otherwise fine. All furniture very well kept and exceptionally clean .I would just say the shower cubicle in second bathroom is a little tired and needs updating but I'm fussy and it didn't spoil our stay. We had a great time in this apt so much nicer than a hotel. Felt like home

The apartment is located in the Dorsoduro area, very close to the San Sebastiano Church. This Sestriere is one of the most beautiful areas where you can find the Accademia, the Guggenheim Museum, the beautiful Zattere with the spectacular views on the Island of Giudecca, the Carmini Church and so much more.
