Overlooking the 'Rio de San Barnaba' Canal and just off Campo San Barnaba (where fruit and vegetables are sold from one of the most-photographed boats in Venice and Katharine Hepburn 'made a splash' in David Lean's classic 1950's film 'Summertime') - a splendid terrace apartment, offering a highly sought-after combination of beautifully presented accommodation and a stunning canal side terrace with dreamy views, all set against the picturesque architecture of the Dorsoduro district.
Extra-special in ambience and deservedly featuring in Janelle McCulloch's 2007 design and interiors hardback book 'View From The Top: Grand Apartment Living' (alongside the separately available Ca? Barnaba Garden apartment on the floor below*), Ca' Barnaba Terrace sleeps up to six guests in flexible accommodation with internet connection and air-conditioning.
Decorated and furnished from top-to-toe in quietly sophisticated natural tones and refined fabrics, the apartment comprises a modern and well-proportioned kitchen - fully equipped with a comprehensive range of appliances including a large fridge, ice-maker and microwave etc., a spacious main living room with relaxing sofas and a dining area giving access, via an intricately leaded French door, onto the long, wide and south-facing furnished terrace. With its trailing greenery and captivating views onto the gentle buzz of the canal below and the apartment's ancient surroundings, it's a memorable spot for breakfasting beneath the rising sun or dining under the stars.
There is a further living room - bright, airy and featuring a small library and an upright piano for those with a fondness for 'tinkling the ivories' during impromptu 'soirees' at home which can also be used as a bedroom thanks to its comfortable double sofa bed and sliding door separating it from the main living/dining area, while two double bedrooms (one of which can be made into a twin ? simply ask when booking) and two bathrooms with bathtubs (one of which is ensuite to one of the bedrooms) complete the accommodation. Within minutes of the Ca' Rezzonico vaporetto stop and the San Samuele Traghetto which, during operating times (please check), ferries passengers by gondola across the Grand Canal to the Palazzo Grassi Museum of Modern Art and the district of San Marco.
Moments to the Ca' Rezzonico Museum of 18th Century Art, the shops, cafes and action of Campo Santa Margherita and the welcoming neighbourhood restaurants of Calle Lunga San Barnaba and merely steps away from one of Venice's hidden musical hotspots - the cosy and well-reviewed Venice Jazz Club, discreetly located just along the 'fondamenta'.
A highly recommended and enormously enjoyable option for those seeking first-class standards of accommodation, a gorgeous terrace and a gently buzzing yet tranquil location with all conveniences close at hand.
* And for even further flexibility, we?re also pleased to offer the Ca? Barnaba Terrace and Ca? Barnaba Garden apartments together as one (subject to the availability of both apartments) - the perfect combination of a terrace AND a garden and ideal for discerning guests of up to 9 in number (please contact us for further details).

Left on 11/03/2011 for a stay in October 2011 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Nov 3, 2011Stayed Oct 2011
We were traveling as 5 family and an extra couple ages 23 - 58 and we found Ca' Barnaba Terace and the adjoining Ca' Barnaba Garden apt the perfect solution. My only complaint was one bathroom did not have a hook to hang the flexible shower ho se on.
The location is fantastic we did get a water taxi there but when we left we walked to the bus and train terminus about 10-15 mins.
The restaurants and bars are 2 mins away at the local Campo but we did not get any noi se at all. We all loved it very convenient large and roomy and wifi is complimentary.
I’m so glad that you all had a great time and that everything worked out well, it is indeed a lovely apartment and in super spot too (even if we do say so ourselves!) Hoping we can welcome you back again soon and with our thanks and best wishes.
