Ca' Dell'Ulivo


€1300,00 7 Nights - Special Offer Add to Wish List

We must have strolled past it a thousand times but little did we appreciate what lay behind its doors…

Nestling in secret behind the garden wall of the 15th century Gothic Palazzo Trevisan Degli Ulivi directly on the ‘passeggiata’-popular Zattere canal-side promenade in Dorsoduro, we’re delighted to welcome pretty Ca’ Dell’ Ulivo.

Named in keeping with the Palazzo and enjoying a much sought -after south-facing courtyard garden all of its own, the apartment is on the ground floor and allows four guests to luxuriate in air-conditioned luxury within what we think is a true jewel box of a property.

Surprisingly secluded yet prominently located near the Church of ‘I Gesuati’ in one of Venice’s most coveted and upmarket residential neighbourhoods, Ca’ Dell’ Ulivo is entered by way of an anonymous arched double doorway leading directly from the Zattere into its dainty secret garden - a paved and furnished haven set away from the madding crowd, where an ancient stone ‘vera da pozzo’ well-head rests in retirement amongst raised borders of newly-planted flowers and established small trees… heavenly.

Recently refurbished not as a simple rental apartment but first and foremost for the personal pleasure and occasional enjoyment of its charming owner, the accommodation is adorable and comprises an open plan main living area with two sets of glazed French doors opening onto the garden and bringing ‘the outside in’ during the summer and fine weather.

Elegant, cosy and cosseting at the same time and framed by a ceiling of white painted beams, polished ‘marmorino’ walls and the most gorgeous Tuscan floor tiling we’ve seen for quite some time, the room features a sprinkling of fine period pieces, original paintings, an immaculate all-white and well-equipped kitchen with an integrated dining table for four, and a luxuriously appointed sitting area with beautifully upholstered club chairs and sofa.

Wi-Fi and a utility room are there for you too, while sitting peacefully to the rear is an attractive double bedroom with perfectly co-ordinated furnishings and a double bed which can be made into twins - please let us know your preference when booking.

Separated from the living area by a multi-paned window which can be curtained off for added privacy, the bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with shower, Egyptian stone fittings and velvety sage green polished plaster walls, while just to the side of the living area sits the super-sweet master bedroom with built-in double bed, twin upholstered chairs, a splendid en-suite bathroom with bathtub and shower over, and wall-sized glazed French doors opening onto the garden and mirroring Ca’ Dell’ Ulivo’s main entrance* beyond.

* Ca’ Dell’ Ulivo’s main entrance (the grey arched double doorway) leading from its courtyard garden onto the Zattere promenade and Giudecca Canal is pictured open in the photographs to give an idea of the position, aspect and view outside the apartment but please note that this doorway is normally kept locked by guests for security.

Bed down in the beauty of dreamy Dorsoduro… an exquisite and enchanting slice of Venice to yourself.

One step away from stunning canal views across to the island of Giudecca, and within minutes of the Accademia Bridge/Accademia Galleries and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection on Venice’s Grand Canal.

A short stroll to the Church of the Salute and to the Punta Della Dogana Museum of Contemporary Art at Dorsoduro’s Eastern tip, and close to a great choice of eating places and bars along, and close to, the Zattere, including the well-known gelataria ‘Da Nico’; ‘Osteria Al Squero’ and ‘Cantinone Gia Schiavi - Al Bottegon’ (perfect venues for a spritz and ‘cicheti’); ‘Lineadombra’ and ‘Ristorante Riviera’ for an evening of fine dining, or for something simpler, ‘Ae Oke’ with its mind-boggling array of eat-in or takeaway pizza (perhaps stopping at ‘El Chioschetto’ on the way!).

An easy walk to the Conad supermarket at the western end of the Zattere and, for Venice-lovers, within moments (via a short covered alleyway or ‘sottoportego’) of the sleepy calle near Campo Sant’ Agnese where, in a scene from the classic 1955 David Lean film ‘Summertime’, Katharine Hepburn and her street urchin companion laughingly cool themselves down in the waters of the neighbourhood fountain.

Very close (and with no bridges to cross) to two vaporetto (water bus) stops for travel around the city - ‘Zattere’ just beyond the apartment entrance and ‘Accademia’ to the north - and to the Alilaguna boat stop connecting the Zattere to Venice's Marco Polo Airport.
