A south-facing 100 sq/mtrs canalside apartment on the Dorsoduro, which is one of the quietest and most sought-after areas of Venice. The apartment lies 2 minutes from the delightful Zattere and 1 minute from charming Campo Santa Margherita. It is close to all the major sights, but away from the main tourist traps, making a stay here restful even in the busiest months. The whole interior has recently been restored (June 2007). Rooms are bright and spacious and most have moulded plaster ceilings with old Murano chandeliers; floors are of travertine limestone, carrara marble or ceramic sandstone. 2 of the 3 bedrooms look out over the canal and the living room has a very large comfortable sofabed. The apartment has a separate well-equipped kitchen. Other features/facilities include Internet access, flat-screen TV, DVD player and stereo, film library and a comprehensive selection of Venetian-themed books. The apartment is beautifully furnished throughout with a mixture of contemporary and antique styles, including a magnificent Henri II carved walnut bed.

Further details indoors

At Ca' San Sebastiano you can expect to find what is often lacking from many self-catering apartments, including feather pillows, umbrellas and walking sticks, a fully equipped picnic basket and coolbag, electrical adaptors, postcards, a good selection of Venetian and Italian CDs and DVDs, as well as an impressive library of books on Venice and more general literature. There are some folding chairs to take to sit out by the canal.

The very well equipped kitchen means you can take full advantage of the superb local markets, including the fish and vegetable stalls in Campo Santa Margherita, just 1 minute's walk from your kitchen.

Further details

Access - there are just 4 steps up to the apartment - otherwise there is level access to the Ca' Rezzonico vaporetto and traghetto stop on the Grand Canal. There is only one bridge to cross to reach the Zattere and San Basilio vaporetto stop

The Veneto region

Whilst in the apartment, don't forget that you're only 10 minutes away from the railway station, which gives you access to the nearby historic cities of Padua, Vicenza and Verona, as well as the Palladian Villas and the Italian Lakes.

Central Venice

Immediately outside the apartment is the church of San Sebastiano, whose celebrated interior was the 24-year-long project of local artist Veronese. Close by you'll also find the Accademia and Guggenheim galleries, the Frari, the Scuola Grande di San Rocco and the Scuola Grande dei Carmini. The famous Ca' Rezzonico (including its useful vaporetto and traghetto stops) on the Grand Canal is a 2 minute walk away. 20 minutes on foot will take you to both San Marco and the Rialto.

"Beautiful apartment in fantastic location in this fabulous city"

My husband and I and 3 teenagers had a wonderful stay. the apartment is beautiful with everything you need. It is ideally located in dorsoduro with a wealth of wonderful cafes and restaurants nearby. We were able to walk to most places we wanted to see and it proved to be an ideal base to explore from, although in a quiet and very beautiful part of Venice. All in all, a very pleasant and relaxed way to experience Venice.

"If we go to Venice again (which we will) we'll stay here!!"

This was in every way a perfect place to stay for my wife and I, our two adult sons and our daughter-in-law. David's help before we went was unstinting. We were treated as guests rather than as a business opportunity. We were sent a key to our UK address with instructions as to how to find the apartment - and it was easy. David's apartment feels like someone's home, beautifully and comfortably furnished and with enough books to stay for a month without even venturing outside. For us it was in a perfect location. It is near the university in a bustling but not overcrowded area - right next to a quiet canal. It was our second visit to Venice, a first for the younger generation. We all agreed that, when we go back to Venice, we won't even bother looking for anywhere else to stay.
