'Practically perfect in every way!' - a truly scrumptious canal side retreat, newly decked out and just right for four, directly overlooking one of the most-photographed and charming locations in Dorsoduro - the historic Squero di San Trovaso (founded in the 17th Century and the oldest of only a tiny handful of working gondola boatyards still left in Venice today, where skilled local artisans continue to craft, maintain and repair gondolas by hand using century old methods).
Little sister apartment to the larger 3 bedroom Ca' Dello Squero and Ca' Dello Squero 2 in the same building, Ca' Del Rio has so many plusses we're entirely smitten!
Enviably positioned on the first floor level and with eye-line views over the Church of San Trovaso and to the junction of the Rio dei Ognissanti and the Rio de San Trovaso canals, the apartment has a main entrance hallway leading on one side into an elegant living/dining room where two windows look onto the water and where the attractive sheen of burnished white Marmorino walls works like a charm in highlighting the warmth and cosiness of its exposed beams and polished wooden flooring.
On the opposite side of the hallway is a well thought out kitchen/breakfast room seating four, newly fitted and fully equipped with dishwasher and all necessary appliances. The two bedrooms are matching in their stylishly co-ordinated furnishings, beams and wooden flooring - a master with double bed and canal views to the front and a second bedroom with twins beds just to the rear - while the re-modelled bathroom in between is modern, tiled and has a shower.
Adding to the long list of things we like are wireless internet connection, air-conditioning in all rooms (except the bathroom) and a washing machine - everything, in fact, to make your stay a superior one!
Rental price includes GAS, ELECTRICITY, LINEN and FINAL CLEANING
A delightful 'new' apartment with excellent facilities in a truly privileged position - unhesitatingly recommended!
Close to the well-known ‘Cantinone Gia Schiavi - Al Bottegon’, a traditional gathering spot for spritz and ‘cicheti’, ‘Lo Squero’, one of the best gelateria in the city and 'Locanda Montin', one of Venice's most famous restaurants. A simple stroll along the stunning Zattere waterfront to a well-stocked Billa supermarket and some great dining options, including the accomplished cooking of ‘Ristorante Riviera’ and the chic over-water terrace of ‘Lineadombra’ or, for something simpler, ‘Ae Oche’ with its mind-boggling variety of eat-in or takeaway pizza, all set beside the unforgettable surroundings of the Giudecca Canal.
Convenient for two vaporetto stops for easy travel around the city - the ‘Zattere’ to the south and ‘Accademia’ to the north and only one minute to the Alilaguna boat stop connecting the Zattere to Venice's Marco Polo Airport....Read more

"Perfect Place to Stay in Crowded Venice"

I would like to highly recommend the apartment Ca' Del Rio to anyone who might consider booking it. The apartment was the perfect size for a family of four, well-located, quiet, private, beautifully furnished and absolutely wonderful. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen accommodating. There was a good market nearby, wonderful places to eat and drink and all of Venice!
The check-in was easy even though we did not have a cell phone, and all of our dealings with Views on Venice were professional and helpful. We had a fabulous time.

Fantastic apartment in great location. Extremely well equipped and very quiet neighborhood away from the crowds. Close to supermarket, shops, restaurants. We were met at a vaporetta stop and taken to the apartment where we were given a terrific introduction to Venice and the local area. Highly recommended.

This is one of the most peaceful quarters in Venice, yet it is close to everything you need to get to! The apartment was beautiful, immaculate, and comfortable; quiet at night, just big enough for a family of 4. The kitchen was large and fun to work in, and the view from the living room was splendid.
The entry hall was deceptively grubby, and the doorway unassuming, but once you got inside, it was totally elegant, and absolutely a pleasure.
"A Charming apartment on a Quiet Canal to Enjoy Venice"

This two bedroom apartment is impeccably maintained and designed, and is in a really convenient location. The service one receives from Views on Venice is unparalleled - they will help you with anything you ask and if there happens to be any issues with the apartment, they come immediately to fix them. We asked for the apartment to be stocked with a few groceries, and everything was perfect. Facing San Trovaso is amazing, which allows you a quick walk to academia. If headed to San Marco or Murano, then turning the opposite way out of the apartment deposits you at Zattere which gives you all the access you want. And - in my 3 year old's opinion - this was the best apartment because of it's proximity to GelatoNico - the best gelateria in Venice!
Ciao amandadeseta! Thank you so much for taking the time to write in with what is our very first Flipkey/Tripadvisor review of Ca’ Del Rio – we’re thrilled to hear that things went so well and that all was to your liking! (re: gelato, hoping you also tried some from nearby ‘Lo Squero’ (on the way to Accademia) - if you didn’t then you’ll have to come back!) Sending you all a ‘Ciao’ from the office and hope very much that we see you again soon.
With our grateful thanks,
Filippo, Views on Venice
