Cool, sleek and quite simply first-rate - a trendy designer loft on the top floor of a spectacular 17th Century Gothic palace in Campo Sant? Angelo in the district of San Marco, with contemporary styling and phenomenal views.
Proof in this case that 'less' is 'much more', Ca' Del Gabbiano 2 (or ?House of the Seagull 2? - a very apt name for this wonderful ?crow?s nest? of a property!) has recently been restored using the latest in modern design as a counterpoint to its fabulously traditional structure.
Sleeping 2 and merely moments on foot to some of Venice's finest attractions including the Palazzo Fortuny, Scala Contarini del Bovolo (currently under restoration) and the Teatro La Fenice, the apartment comprises an impressively spacious open-plan main room incorporating sitting, dining and kitchen zones, with pale wooden flooring in shades of bleached oak and a fresh whitewashed colour scheme providing a chic and understated backdrop to the magnificent weathered timbers dominating the ceiling space.
The up-to-the-minute kitchen is semi-concealed in keeping with the main focus on streamlined simplicity yet is well-equipped for hassle-free self-catering, while the entire area is bright, airy and enjoys stupendous far-reaching views over Venice and its rooftops.
The bedroom with comfy double bed has an en suite bathroom with modern shower and 'verde salvia' mosaic while the entrance/'snug' at the opposite end of the apartment has a single sofa bed, memorable views towards the Campanile and Basilica of St. Mark's and a further bathroom with fashionable fittings and Japanese style bathtub.
Further features to enhance the comfort and convenience of your stay include air-conditioning, a washing machine and DVD player.
Are you part of a larger group who would like to stay close together but in separate apartments? We offer another apartment in this building: Ca' Del Gabbiano 1
A top-notch conversion in antique surroundings - centrally placed with a magical outlook.
A terrific place to stay but please be aware that there are a number of long staircases to climb (the apartment is on the 5th floor) and no lift. (An additional note to our taller guests regarding the sloping ceilings present in the bedroom, entrance/'snug' and bathrooms.)
Within minutes of the Sant' Angelo vaporetto stop for travel around the city and the 'Traghetto' at Garzoni, which during operating times, ferries passengers by gondola across the Grand Canal to the district of San Polo.TripAdvisor property ID 1994880...Read more

The apartment is very well located, the Fenice is one brigde away, the Sant'Angelo Vaporetto is very close.
The apartment is very well designed. The only problem is that there is a bat in the apartment. This was very scary. We ran into it one night when we got home, the bat cave is through one of the beans in front of the apartment entrance. We saw it flying around for a couple of minutes - it was trying to find the enteance. I couldn't sleep for the rest of my stay.
Another problem with the apartment is that there is no elevator. This wasn't a problem for us but it can be a problem for other people.
The views from the apartment are terrific. No much water but great rooftop views.
The shower is super tiny, I am used to small showers in Italy but this one won the price.
The kitchen is very well equipped with high quality tableware.
“Beautiful apartment and location - lots of stairs!”

This apartment is gorgeous with all the amenities you would want (the only thing missing was a kettle!)
It's in a great location right near S.Angelo vaparetto stop (and on the alilaguna line to the airport), and fronts a beautiful square with cafes. Right near accademia, Rialto, and 15 minutes walk to San Marco Square.
The bathroom is a little dark and cramped but the living room is big and airy with great air conditioning. Beware mosquitos in summer though, if you leave the windows open!
My only warning against the place is if you're not a fan of stairs. You've got to walk up 5 flights of stairs to get up and down - which certainly makes you fit by the end of your stay, but is difficult with luggage and with groceries.

great modern place to stay, perfectly located in the centre of Venice just few steps from all the concert halls, museums, shops, sightseeings, etc. If you don't mind to climb upstairs without elevator it would be granted by amazing view of Venice outside of windows.
