Bernini apartment is a unique example of architectural and interior design located opposite the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in the Dorsoduro District
Located in the artistic triangle between the Zattere waterfront, the Accademia Bridge and the monumental Basilica della Salute, this apartment is ideal for discerning art lovers. Many connoisseurs of Venice and influential artists have homes in this area as it is picturesque, culturally interesting and quiet. Besides the nearby Peggy Guggenheim Gallery, other landmarks in the neighborhood include the Accademia Gallery, Punta della Dogana, the François Pinault Foundation and other world famous landmarks.
The Bernini is a very bright, first floor apartment overlooking a lovely canal. It has been newly restored with high-end materials and furnishings and completely decorated to the exacting taste of the landlord who loves to spend his own holidays in Venice here. The privileged guests will find an immaculate apartment and not surprisingly they are requested very kindly to take great care of it!
The apartment has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large combined living-dining space and a very modern kitchen. The living room has a comfortable sofa, some Danish mid-20th century chairs and a rustic table. The designer kitchen is stunning and very functional. On the main level there is a cozy double bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and a luxurious en-suite bathroom. A second semi-private bedroom with only 1.5 meters clearance is located up a staircase in the loft space. A second elegant designer bathroom with shower is located off the living room.
The smart layout of the Bernini apartment optimizes the 60 square meter space especially by the addition of the steel, wood and glass mezzanine providing a cozy relaxing area and the spare bedroom. The furniture is ‘industrial-vintage” and Scandinavian. The use of bright neutral colors on the parquet flooring, antique brick walls and wooden beamed ceilings in combination with colorful and playful interior details appeals especially to contemporary art lovers.
The amenities include air-conditioning in every room, Wi-Fi, a washing machine, dishwasher, electric stove, fridge with freezer, microwave, kettle, coffee maker and other appliances.
The Bernini apartment is ideal for a couple and for short stays it can host up to four people. Keeping in mind the limits of the upstairs bedroom and open staircase, Bernini is not recommended for children.

First, it really does look as smart and bright as it does in the photos. Second, it's in a fantastic location, one canal back from the Grand Canal, behind the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. Third, having a proper kitchen in Venice makes all the difference, as you can buy relatively cheap, fresh ingredients and knock up a delicious meal after a busy day sightseeing, without the expense and difficulty of finding a good restaurant every night. We loved the Bernini apartment and a visiting Italian friend said she would recommend it to all her friends who come to Venice. She was quite jealous! I loved having my own walk-in wardrobe, and the attention to detail with all aspects of design. Our only issue was the heat. At the end of spring we couldn't use air conditioning and though it was only 16 degrees outside the apartment got hot at night. Leaving windows open was noisy and could let in mosquitoes. At other times of year this may not be an issue. The team at Truly Venice looked after us very well and I would certainly use them again, and recommend them. All in all it was a lovely experience.April 2018, Sophia (UK)

We just spent the last week in the Bernini apartment in the Dusorduro Neighborhood and it was BEAUTIFUL. We've stayed at a few apartments with this company and all are very cool but this one was stunning and in THE most perfect area! Everything literally right outside your door or a short walk away. The only reason I didn't give it an excellent rating is that it needed extra sheets and blankets. There was only one coverlet on the bed no sheet or blanket. So ask for more immediately when you get there if there aren't yet! The decor was perfection it was small yet PERFECTLY APPOINTED. I come every 3 months and I would DEFINITELY stay there again! Lara and the other representatives of Truly Venice were fantastic and helpful. I would rate them 5 stars if I could!August 2017, Jennifer (United States)
Dear Truly Venice, We wanted to reach out to you and let you know how much we are enjoying the apartment..please extend our regards and appreciation to the owner/designer...his thoughtful choices and attention to detail continue to enhance our experience in Venice. The apartment feels like home and we have only been there for a week! Everything is wonderful... Warm Regards, DarleneSeptember 2017, Darlene (Vancouver)
Thank you for a wonderful stay at the Bernini apartment, the apartment was perfect (even better than it looked online) and we all had a wonderful time. Having done airbnb before we loved that extra level of attention/service you provided. I emailed day before arrival with questions about what was open on new years eve/day when we arrived, and instantly received super informative reply. Being meet by Thomas at the boat was great, he took us back to apartment and sat down with map and marked up lots full of fabulous things and places for us to visit, and when I asked how best to get to airport for our very early flight on day of departure, he said water taxi was only way and he’d sort it, and he did. Fabulous! Thanks again.January 2017, Claire (Australia)
We loved this apartment. Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, and comfortable. We received excellent service from TrulyVenice Apartments (Thank you, Daniela and Hannah!). The location of this apartment is ideal. It's on a quiet, beautiful little street, and it's a short walk to the Accademia water bus stop. We were glad to have this corner of peace and quiet to return to every night, after the crush of tourists in other parts of town. If we ever make it back to Venice, we would absolutely stay here again. (Note about kids: This apartment is not suitable for young children, for a variety of reasons. The biggest one being the staircase up to the loft - absolutely not recommended for small kids. Our kids are 10 and 12, and they were just fine. Also, the art in the apartment is all original, so if it would stress you out to have your kids around valuable pieces of art, then this would not be a good place to stay.)June 2016, Scarlet (United States)
This space is enchanting. Everything one needs to ensure a wonderful stay. I will return and also hope my family will stay here in the future. Everywhere one is surrounded by beauty from the pieces of modern art to the white interior. A very special place for lovers of an uncluttered life. Thank you.March 2016, Julia (United Kingdom)
