We are delighted to announce that Ca' Masena, our beautiful restored private courtyard apartment has been selected for inclusion on Alastair Sawday's Special Places website. They 'reject the bland, the corporate and the impersonal' and 'select only the most special places and owners'. It is situated just off the Zattere with its stunning views across the water to Giudecca Island. The furnishings enhance the apartment's character and combine classical style with contemporary comfort. The exposed beams and subtle terrazzo flooring give a traditional Venetian finish, while the Italian chandeliers, original oil paintings and carefully selected textiles add more than a hint of luxury.

The apartment has a spacious lounge with sofa beds and comfortably seats up to 6 people. Our dining area can also seat six, so enj...

Ca Masena was the ideal base for a wonderful week in Venice. The apartment is well placed and we were met by a local representative who settled us in and showed us round. The apartment was very clean and well equipped. It was also cosy and comfortable, including the bed. The apartment is close to all the pleasures of Venice...

Would highly recommend this apartment - one of the major advantages is that it is in Dorsoduro, only a 15-20 min walk to St Mark's square which is very well signposted once you're over the Accademia Bridge (as is the Rialto Bridge). Some good restaurants walking distance from the apartment and a good Conad supermarket as well (one minute). Wander...

About the neighbourhood
At the end of our lane is the magnificent Zattere promenade, where you can go for your evening stroll (passeggiata) along with the Venetians. Close by you will find the Accademia, Guggenheim and Punta della Dogana (Francois Pinault collection) galleries. La Salute (church) at the end of the Zattere marks the spot where the Grand Canal meets the Bacino di San Marco and there is a marvellous view to be had from this point.Throughout the year there are the various pageants & festivals, one of the most famous being Carnavale in February. During May there is the Festa della Sensa to enjoy, while one of the most spectacular events happens in July with the Festa del Redentore, when a temporary bridge of barges is built across the Giudecca Canal. Of course there is always the annual Venice... more
