Venice apartment description

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'. We have also been mentioned in an article on Venice by Guardian newspaper. 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! 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.

                          Car: Not Necessary

                          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!
