What Past Guests Are Saying
We stayed for a week in this spacious apartment in a historic Palazzo, with children aged 4 and 1. It was the most amazing experience - waking up in the morning and sitting in our living area, looking across at the most amazing panorama - the Grand Canal, the historic buildings, Accademia Bridge...my children waving at the passing boats and gondolas and listening to the sound of gondoliers playing music and singing, and their passengers waving back. Because we were on the top floor, the sound was never intrusive. There aren't lifts, but we found the location and the apartment so well worth the steps to get to it. The only time I complained was with a full load of gourmet food - bought a short distance away at the local mixed business, or for a bigger shop, 10 minutes walk at the most, across the canal, was the big supermarket that all the locals use, and it was cheap and the food just devine! What a way to shop, walking across the canals and through the streets of Venice for your bread and milk! We ate like royalty, well served by the huge kitchen with everything we needed. There are also very nice galleries (loved the Peggy Guggenheim Collection) , cafes and resturants (and of course gelato bar) a very short distance away - and while close to all the tourist sights, I felt this was an area that was still full of locals, and not really that many tourists! There was obviously a music school not far away, as we sat on our roof terrace and listened to violin and piano performances a few nights, with a glass of wine, watching the sun set. We also entertained friends in town at the time with a cooked breakfast on that terrace - there was plenty of room - it was used a lot more than we expected!). Once we closed the door and were inside the apartment, we couldn't hear a thing. We obviously had way too much space for a family of four, but our daughter absolutely loved her attic room, it truly is the perfect kids bedroom (and the air conditioning up there worked well). Our son slept well in the cot supplied in the twin room, which looked very comfortable and while our double bed was extremely firm, we slept very well. The washing machine was so handy, and hanging our clothes on the traditional pulley line over the adjacent side canal added to the most amazing 'Real' Venetian experience. This is a very traditional palazzo - with old floors that go up and down (terazzo is quite a bit slippery if wearing the wrong shoes - be careful- we found barefoot better) and a lot of old style furniture, some of which we moved out of little people's reach while we were there, but everything was gorgeous, ambient, well loved and well cared for and we just loved loved loved it. Never would we stay in a sterile, small Venetian hotel again. There is nothing sterile about this place, and we would absolutely go back again and stay at Ca Duca Terrace. I'd been to Venice once before, my husband twice, we thought it would be our last trip there but now we are working out how to get back there as soon as we possibly can. I think that our stay at Ca Duca Terrace is the primary reason for that. The Views on Venice staff are great - from initial inquiry stage on-line, to the meet and greet, to babysitting (the kids had a lovely time with annalisa, we had a couple of dinners and a lunch without children and it was so much enjoyed), to the final check-out - everyone was courteous, professional and friendly. Without a doubt, one of the best holiday experiences and loveliest places we have ever stayed. Thank you.
