Zattere is an essential but comfortable newly renovated apartment located along the well-known Zattere waterfront in the Dorsoduro District
Possibly the best spot of the city, accessible in only 3 minutes walk from the homonymous Vaporetto stop, 4 minutes walk from the Accademia stop and 5 minutes from the Salute stop. In the surroundings you can find the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Punta della Dogana e la François Pinault Foundation, the Accademia Galleries and other world famous landmarks. Many Venice connoisseurs and influent artists bought their house here as it is a picturesque, quiet and central area of Venice.
The Zattere apartment blends contemporary comfort with some antique furniture pieces and the typical Venetian atmosphere being located at the ground floor of an historical palace bordering a water channel. The canal view can be enjoyed from every window, in particular from the water door of one bedroom where the fortunate guest can relax reading a book listening to the pleasant sound of the water splashing and the emerald color reflecting on the walls.
The living room is equipped with a comfortable single sofa bed, table for four people, a compact but very functional kitchen and the basic electric appliances. There is a larger bedroom that can be used as a twin or a double with en-suite bathroom and a smaller second bedroom with a thick double sofa bed perfectly comparable to a real bed, plus a second bathroom with shower. The house is perfect for up to 4 people, on request may be possible to host 5 guests paying a little extra.
In summary the Zattere apartment is a fresh and easy living sort of apartment with a welcoming atmosphere. We suggest this apartment for families or couples, including older travelers who seek an easily accessible apartment with no steps.

This is a very nice appartment in Dosodoro Sestre which we like very much. We were very comfortable here and can recommend it. It is towards the east end of the Zattere which means you do need to walk quite a lot so if mobilty is a problem then it is probably not for you. We will certainly book here again. We were glad of the help to move to Dolphin. Truly Venice now manages over 100 apartments. The very high level of service we have experience in the past with the very helpful briefing has been pared a bit. We certainly would not use any other agency in Venice.June 2018, Joan and Christophe (United States)
If you are looking for a self catering apartment in Venice has it all. Stylish design, located on the same small canal that passes behind the Guggenheim, five minutes' walk to the Accademia or Zattere vaporetto stops, yet in a quiet area. It has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a comfortable sitting room, and a kitchen with enough equipment to try your hand at some Venetian cooking. It is a delightful experience to come home through some quiet calles and past some private gardens for an aperol spritz after a day's sightseeing and having coped with the tourist crush around St Mark's and the Rialto. Friendly management and well cared for, Zattere was greatMay 2018, Robert (Australia)
The Zattere appartment is located in a great location, just far enough from the tourist crowds. The set up is pleasant and comfortable and most of the eating suggestions in the appartment brochure were high quality, avoiding the tourist menusOctober 2012, Irena (South Australia)
There were four in our party including a 12 and 9 yo. We chose an apartment because we wanted to be able to cater for the kids sometimes - however cooking in a different country (ie food types) with limited utensils is a challenge so we gave that up! The apartment does have a canal running along side it - but it is a small canal with very little action and a brick wall opposite - now much of a view. If I had my time again I would go for a small terrace or garden as in the evenings there was nowhere to sit and relax with a glass of wine. Having said all of that, the apartment was perfect. Two bedrooms of decent size, plenty of hanging space, clean, fresh and two bathrooms. It was quiet so great for sleeping with windows open. It was a great location (or we thought so). We like to walk and wander so being away from San Marco area was not an issue for us. There are lots of restaurants and supermarket nearby.October 2014, Lorraine (Australia)
Old building on side canal newly renovated very nicely, everything was new and functional. Windows were right on a canal. Vaparetto (water bus) was 1 block away. 5 minutes walk to Grand Canal, Academia, Guggenheim, grocery store and 10 minutes to some great, non tourist restaurants. Took water taxi from airport (perfectly pre-arranged by Daniela, the best way to arrive in Venice) and our check-in person was waiting at the dock. Extremely nice and knowledgeable of Venice and pointed us to some great restaurants that were not serving tourist food. We had his phone number if we needed any assistance, which we didn't. Stayed 6 days, ate breakfast a couple times in the kitchenette, but it was much more fun to go to one of the breakfast barges sitting on the river around the corner or the espresso bar. They were able to accommodate our late check out and we had our water taxi pick us up and whisk us to the airport parking lot. Cost was half what you would pay in a hotel that week. Highly recommend, would do it again in a minute.September 2011, Mark, Jessica & son (United States)
The Zattere apartment is situated in what is, for me, the nicest and most convenient area of Venice. It is less than five minutes walk from the Zattere vaporetto stop (where the alilaguna airport ferry also stops) and the cafes and bars of that delightful promenade with its spectacular views of the Guidecca. Some of the sunsets had to be seen to be believed! Heading north, the Guggenheim is not much further, the accademia and its bridge about ten minutes' walk. The excellent Billa supermarket is about fifteen minutes' walk. This part of the Dorsoduro is wonderfully quiet and peaceful and mercifully throng-free. The apartment itself is on the ground floor, with charming views over a small canal that runs alongside. It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, so is suitable for three or four people, and a decent-sized and reasonably well-equipped kitchen/sitting room. Three of us spent a very comfortable week there, cozy and warm despite the bitter sub-zero temperatures outside. There is also a very fast wi-fi internet connection. I had no complaints about the service we received - far from it. Indeed, our agent (Letizia) resolved what could have been a very major problem for us, on Christmas Day, without any hesitation, or complaint, even though it must have seriously spoiled her day. Service way above the call of duty! I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this delightful apartment, and Truly Venice.December 2011, John (United States)
This nice and welcoming apartment was easy to access, central yet away from the tourist storm. Fabulous outing choices around the corner, beautiful views over towards Giudecca and 15 minutes walk to San Marco... you just need to go out and enjoy Venice!!April 2012, Manuela (Germany)
I traveled with my Dad and brother (I am 28 and my brother is 25). Being 3 adults and from Texas space was key for us and this apartment was fantastic! Since this was our last stop of our Italy vacation I thought we may be close to killing each other but it was just the opposite. We wished we had longer in Venice. We loved being on the water and the apartment made that experience even better. The location isn't necessarily in the middle of everything but worked out great for us! The management was very nice and helpful, I can't say one bad thing about our stay at Zattere.June 2012, Obrien (United States)
