Historical house with Garden in Dorsoduro with lift
average rating of 4.736842 based on 19 reviews

The property is well located for getting around Venice. It easily accommodated our parry of 8.

  • 4 of 5

The property is large and situated over 2 floors with a lift between floors, Although we never used it. It is full of character and history and whilst the kitchen and bathrooms have been modernised the other rooms still hold true to the Venician style.

It is well located for getting around Venice with shops, restaurants and bars all within a 5-10 minute walk. It has all the amenities required to be a home away from home with a large garden.

Tess and her son were lovely host, although we never actually met Tess, she did keep in touch with us right up until we arrived at the property at which point her son took over. He explained everything about the house as well as the local sites, the best way to get around Venice and how to get to the various tourist attractions. He was very helpful and spoke excellent English so no language barriers. Although check in was at 3pm, we arrived early, to find the house going through the cleaning transition, our only disappointment was that we were told it wouldn't be ready until nearer 6pm. We would have all liked to have freshen up before going out for the afternoon. However, we left our cases and went out, staying out longer than we intended on that first afternoon but when we did arrive back at around 5pm the property was ship shape and ready for our use.

The property has full air conditioning but it wasn't working fully in 2 of the rooms, but work had been scheduled to be carried out to replace the 2 units. The work overall was not too intrusive on our stay as they worked outside until we were ready to go out in the morning and when we returned late afternoon, it was all just about completed with little to no mess.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this properry for its location, size, character and helpful hosts.

We were a family of 8 and stayed at this property for 3 nights. The location and the property itself was perfect. The home was beautiful. It was nice being away from the craziness of San Marco. Tess was a great help and a wonderful host.

Elegant home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This home offers everything you could ask for in the desirable Dorsoduro neighborhood. Sophisticated decor, and all rooms are equipped with AC. There's a lovely garden with a seating area and a beautiful wooden communal table inside if the weather turns. We didn't use the kitchen, but it has everything you need to feel at home. Highly recommended.

Excellent New Year

  • 5 of 5

We were met at the water taxi drop off on time and led to the house - a two minute walk only - by the owner's son. All was explained in minute detail in fluent English and the house was exactly as expected - the pictures on the site do not lie. A great house - we were 8 people - with ample space for all. Close by to everything, yet secluded enough for peace and quiet. Great ( recommended) restaurants just around a few corners.

Would return without hesitation. Thank you Tess.

notre meilleure location de loin à Venise ..

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est spacieux, nous étions 9 et toutes les chambres décorées avec soin. Très loin des locations aseptisées avec des déco standard. Là nous étions dans une vraie maison avec toute la chaleur et le charme d'une ancienne demeure .. comme à la maison (des tonnes de livres, un piano, des canapés géniaux, un jardin magique à 2 pas du Guggenheim. Propreté, équipement, charme et chaleur .. tout y est.. du rarement vu. ET le ponpon avec Tessa la propriétaire .. d'une gentillesse toute italienne..

A Home in Venice

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a great week in this lovely, homely house. Initially we were 7 adults and 2 babies, but changed halfway to 8 adults. The house was very comfortable and quiet, with all the facilities we wanted. It was a pity the weather was against using the garden, but we could easily get to anywhere in Venice. Tessa was very helpful, even warning us about the aqua alta. Strongly recommended.
