I booked the whole building as a splurge for my sisters 50th birthday years ago. This was a most wonderful vacation made better by our host's hospitality and charm. The house is spectacular and the furnishings very comfortable. This a magic place to stay and their other property is equally as nice.

As it was our wedding anniversary, we wanted something a little different for our stay in Venice and we were not dissappointed. :: LOCATION :: The Alma Viva is located in the more residential Dorsoduro area, which is great as it's quiet at night. The directions given was easy enough to follow, although I felt rather sick after vaporo (water...

To wake up in room next to a small side canal in Dorsoduro, knowing the pleasures a day in Venice may hold, is a special experience: to do so knowing your day will begin with the warmth and personality of hostess Maria over delicious pastries and coffee, and a good chance of interesting conversation with others round the table in...

Stayed here for 4 nights at the end of October based on reviews from here and the price(reasonable for Venice, anywhere else and the price would cover a three/four star hotel). Location wise, this place is fantastic as it is close enough to walk to the big sights but far away enough to turn the corner and escape from the...

We stayed at the Almaviva House for 3 days in September as part of a birthday trip to Rome and Venice. Our experience didn't start of in the best way as we did not seem to be expected when we arrived. After half an hour waiting in a hallway we were picked up by a young woman, only to find...

Then once my wife and I had decided I emailed my requrement to him and booked that...

Well, not if you need more than a simple room for two, which you can get in the main house.... We stayed in the Almaviva in what we were told was the worst heat wave Venice has seen in ages. The average temperature while we were there was 95 degrees F. The building is in a lovely area of Dorsoduro,...

We stayed for four nights in July and loved it. Initially difficult to find as many places in Venice once you are there the house is fantastic. On a beautiful and quiet canal near the lagoon and the Zattere vaporetto stop our room had a canal view and a view of the courtyard with en-suite bathroom. The room was big...

My partner and I found the Almaviva through the website "Purple Roofs.com" and it is a gem in the midst of the sea, just like Venice herself. It is a modest sized, historic structure, situated right on a small canal, with a beautiful courtyard. It is a very romantic setting in a very romantic city. It is also on a...

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
