How to get there
Our offer is for a modern flat refurbished four years ago. It's located in the Sestiere of Dorsoduro, on the first floor of a typical detached Venetian house. Close to it stands the church of San Sebastian and the house overlooks a large Campo (typical venetian square) where children can play.
To enter the flat you have to pass through an entrance hall which can be used just by another flat and where there is also a cellar. In the flat there is a living-room with a double-bed couch, a large bedroom, a kitchen and a bathroom whit shower.
The flat is really bright and, differently from most Venetian flats, it has windows overlooking a small square and a courtyard. The style of the flat is modern whit a wooden parquet and a minimalist forniture. The kitchen floor is in the typical "venetian mosaic" and the room is provided whit all necessary kitchen's tools. The elettric appliances are a fridge and a dishwasher, a TV set, a small vacuum cleaner, a microwave oven.
It is a home fit for holydays, but it has been used as a dwelling up to a few years ago, so it offers all what is necessary if one wants to stay there for a long time.THE ENTIRE APARTMENT 'EXCLUSIVE USE! NO OTHER GUESTS AT THE SAME TIME is PRESENT IN APARTMENT!
The bedroom is quite large, with three windows and a large white wardrobe. There are a lot of books, books of art and architecture and guides illustrating the minor architectural places and authentic Venice.
The flat offers a lot of positive feautures: its location, quite far from the touristic flow, yet linked to the city authentic life.
The flat is next to the church of St. Sebastian, its overlooks a "Campo" (small square). It is in Sestrier of Dorsoduro, one of the six boroughs of Venice and one of the liveliest. This borough is inhabited by local people all year round. It is the seat of the architecture university. Not far from here stands "Campo Santa Margherita", one of the most pictoresque squares, always full of students and young architects. ("Bar Rosso" and "Caffè Duchamp" are well known meeting places).
This square offer the possibility to go shopping in a supermarket, a take-away pizza and a little library. Close to the square ther's also a Jazzclub.
As the square is far from the typical Venetian channels, children can play here freely. In case you accept our offer, we would be glad to recommend you some typical restaurants.
A one minute walk from the flat, there is the "Zattere" a long promenade on the Giudecca Channel. In the sunny days, you can seat there, read books, sunbathing and let your children play freely. There you can find as well a cheap supermarket, where we normally do our shopping.
Now let's speak of the artistic side of Venice as the city is an artistic surprise. Just to start, in the church which is near to our flat, there are paintings by Tiziano and Veronese and some valuable sculptures of the Renaissance period.
In the church of Frari and in the School of San Rocco, which are a few minutes away, you can admire the "Assunta", a masterpiece of Tiziano.
After few minutes walk from our flat you reach the museum of the Accademia and the Guggenhaim Museum of modern art.
If you get to Venice by train or you reach "Piazzale Roma " - Rome square -, you can get to our flat after a ten minutes walk or by boat "vaporetto". Take the one that stops in San Basilio.
