A charming and characterful bolthole for two in the building once lived in by the 16th Century Italian Renaissance painter Tintoretto and within a minute of his final resting place in the beautiful gothic Church of Madonna Dell 'Orto (Our Lady of the Garden). Close to the historic Jewish Ghetto and the Jewish Museum of Venice and steps away from the famous turbaned and metal-nosed statues of the ancient 'Moorish' spice merchants of Campo and Fondamenta Dei Mori - symbolic reminders of Venice's historic trading routes with the East, the legacy of which survives to this day amidst the hubbub and commerce of the Rialto markets, a mere 10-15 minute stroll and short 'traghetto' ride away from the apartment.
Elegant, bright and with beautifully languid south-facing views over the Rio Della Sensa canal, the air-conditioned Ca' Tintoretto is on the first floor and is attractively furnished with a stylishly eclectic mix of antiques, contemporary pieces, books and collectables. It has a cosy and freshly decorated beamed sitting/dining room with comfortable seating, wooden flooring, eastern rugs, a music system and two large windows with wrought iron balustrades which overlook the canal, a bridge and the occasional art-lover successful in hunting down and photographing this historically significant landmark.
Just off this main room lies a compact and very well-fitted kitchen and, to the side, a spacious and dreamy 'boudoir' - a cleverly divided space featuring a double bed and modern en suite shower room at one end, an enormous wall-to-wall sofa directly overlooking the room's beautiful arched window at the other and a perfect spot for idling away the time while contemplating your choice of restaurant for lunch or dinner as the boats gently pass by.
In an area of wonderful walks through the laid-back and very traditional neighbourhoods of Cannaregio and within easy reach of a growing number of restaurants and 'osterie' such as 'Anice Stellato', 'Rioba', 'Ristorante Diana' and 'Al Timon' dotted along the wide waterfronts of the Fondamente De La Sensa, Della Misericordia and Dei Ormesini, not forgetting the Osteria L'Orto dei Mori just steps away from the apartment.
Convenient for the shops of the Strada Nuova for stocking up on supplies and to the vaporetto system at Madonna Dell' Orto (on Venice's northern embankment) for travel around the city, trips to beaches of the Lido and for sightseeing visits to the glass-blowing island of Murano, the lace-making and rainbow-coloured island of Burano and the ancient island of Torcello with its 7th Century Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta and later Church of Santa Fosca.

Service was impeccable from the off. We were contacted shortly before departure and alerted to a general strike in Italy that would affect transport and were able to take appropriate steps. We were met at Madonna del Orto alilaguna stop and taken to the apartment and given a full briefing on the area including hints about out of the way restaurants. The apartment was superb, beautifully appointed and very comfortable. The location is perfect as it is on one of the quieter canals in Cannaregio and we slept like tops. There are bakeries, wine shops bars and restaurants within minutes walk of Ca Tinteretto and a short walk of less than ten minutes takes you to the Strada Nova and all its shops and access to the Grand Canal. We spent most evenings in the area because there really is no reason to go further afield. Small point to note, at this time there is no wifi but there are bars nearby with free wifi and the most beautiful surroundings so it is no great problem. On our return home we discovered that two friends had spent a stay in the same apartment three weeks earlier and enjoyed it as much as we did. Her is to the next time.

Home away from home, beautiful location and great style. Plenty to read on Venice and lovely choice of music. Oh and a great and attentive team to tend to one's needs without intruding. I'd say it's as close to perfection as can be while still leaving space to dream... such as this being one's real home :). Oh and by the way, I've stayed once 3.5 weeks and once (unfortunately) only 4 days in the apartment.
"Fabulously appointed historic and genuine apartment in great Ven"

We completely enjoyed all things about this appartment and the service from Views on Venice was efficient, very friendly and helpful for our first stay in this wonderful city. Very quiet at night and located just outside the usual tourist precincts. We felt instantly at home and would highly recommend this apartment to anyone who enjoys the better things in life without being ostentatious. Close to Madonna del Orto and Campo de Mori with the vaporetto to Murano/Burano and Torcello just ten minuti away! Billa supermarket and local shops not too far away either with a few good restaurants also nearby. We enjoyed watching the local canal traffic go gently past (refuiti/refuse and delivery barges and elegant water taxis) and the local people all around. The interior is beautifully restrained whilst providing all one could desire to make it home for your stay. We may well come back to this very apartment it was so good and by far and away the best on our four weeks in Italy. Read more
Thanks so much Kevin & Brenda, you’ve really given a lovely flavour of your stay and we’re thrilled that we might be lucky enough to see you here in Venice and at Ca’ Tintoretto again in the future – you’d be most welcome! Hoping you had a good trip back and sending all our very best to you both there in Adelaide.
Ciao e Grazie

"Lovely apartment in quiet area"
Left on 06/17/2011 for a stay in May 2011 | JillReviewed Jun 17, 2011Stayed May 2011
This apartment was really lovely. Right on a canal with a great spot to relax and watch the passing boats. The area is relatively quiet for Venice which is a plus. The apartment is in a house once lived in by Tintoretto and a plaque commemorates this on the building. This made the stay just a bit more special. Views on Venice are very professional and all was well organized. I have stayed in their apartments several times and they are always of a high standard. Read more
Thank you so much for staying with us again and for your very kind words, I'm really delighted it all worked out well and that you enjoyed the apartment and its special location. Hoping we have the pleasure of seeing you again and with all our best wishes.

Staying at Ca'Tintoretto was an ideal way to spend our week in Venice. It is a lovely, romantic flat with plenty of room. There is even a balcony to sit at and watch the world go by with a glass of prosecco in hand! The kitchem had all the we needed, the bathroom was modern and clean, and the bed was comfortable. We intend to return very soon. Read more
Ciao Patricia, Congratulations on becoming the very first reviewer of Ca' Tintoretto and thank you so much! I'm delighted to hear that you both enjoyed yourselves and have plans for coming back to Venice soon. Once tasted it's hard to let go! With our very best wishes to you both.
