Mid-century modern in mood and giving onto the Rio Terà dei Saloni – a wonderfully evocative and peaceful tree-lined avenue linking the breathtaking Zattere waterfront to the glittering Grand Canal – apartment Ca’ Delle Vele sleeps 4 guests in a characterful setting of rough-hewn timbers, oak flooring and velvety Marmorino walls. West facing and bright – particularly in the afternoon and early evening – and providing comfort and style in abundance and equal measure, this 1st floor apartment offers air-conditioning and Wi-Fi plus a relaxed and homely ambience. Situated in an area historically famous for the salt warehouses once found here and within a stone’s throw of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, the Fondazione Emilio e Annabianca Vedova, the Punta Della Dogana Center of Contemporary Art and the ‘traghetto’ gondola ferry crossing the Grand Canal to the San Marco sestiere.

A communal entrance on the ground floor with stairs rising to the

1st Floor – private door into:

• A cosy, welcoming and softly lit sitting room picked out in tasteful teal-blues and furnished with a large L-shaped sofa set beneath a wall print of the ‘Chiesa della Salute Venezia’ by Gaspare Vanvitelli (1653–1736) and a splendidly detailed tapestry giving warmth to the room, and featuring 3 tall French windows opening onto a long balcony with window boxes overlooking the delightfully tranquil Rio Terà dei Saloni* and the little 15th-century Gothic palazzo opposite, with the Zattere waterfront and the Giudecca Canal just visible at its southern end!

• A modern, streamlined and well-equipped kitchen / dining room to the side with a dining suite seating 6

• 2 attractively presented double bedrooms of approximately similar size and style – one in a cool eau-de-nil to the front and the other in a warm buttery yellow to the rear and¬ both with built-in wardrobes and double beds which can be made into singles upon request.

• 2 separate bathrooms with contemporary-style fittings – one with a bathtub and hand-held shower and the other with a shower

A very short stroll via the wide Rio Terà dei Catecumeni to the magnificent votive Church of Santa Maria Della Salute and its breathtaking views over to the Campanile at San Marco… and peacefully positioned (except during the ‘Festa Della Salute’ which takes place on 21 November each year

Within steps of the popular little coffee shop / takeaway known as 60/40 – perfect for a morning cappuccino and pastry, a freshly squeezed juice, filled roll or a refreshing gelato or 3! (NB: only a small handful of bar stools available) – and within a short walk of the Accademia Galleries and Bridge (and the VOV office!), the Palazzo Cini Gallery and a variety of fine eating places and bars including Linea D’Ombra, Ai Gondolieri and Ristorante Riviera for fine dining and Corner Pub, Osteria Al Squero and Cantinone Gia Schiavi for panini / cicheti and spritz.

A scenic waterside stroll to the Conad supermarket at the western end of the Zattere and within easy reach of 4 vaporetto (water bus) stops – Zattere Spirito Santo, Zattere, Salute and Accademia – for travel around the city (note that St. Mark’s Square can be reached by vaporetto from Salute in under 5 minutes on Line 1!)

Also moments to the ‘traghetto’ at Calle Lanza / Calle del Traghetto S. Gregorio which, during operating hours, ferries passengers by gondola across the Grand Canal to the stand beside the Gritti Palace Hotel in the district of San Marco, and within easy reach of the Alilaguna boat stop connecting the Zattere to Venice’s Marco Polo Airport.
