On the picturesque canalside known as ‘Fondamenta Soranzo’, where gondola oars and ‘forcolas’ are still crafted by hand, and close to the one-time home of well known American poet Ezra Pound, sits Ca’ Della Fornace - a cosy and very comfortable two bedroom apartment on the third floor with views onto the romantic ‘Rio Delle Fornace’ canal and a part of the awe-inspiring ‘cupola’ of the Church of Santa Maria Della Salute, one of the most cherished icons of the city.
Views on Venice was founded in the late 1990’s when the concept of short term apartment rentals was in its infancy and rarely considered an option by most visitors to the city. As a ‘thirty-something’ Venetian excited by the new business and communication opportunities offered by the internet, I decided to link up with a close childhood friend in creating a partnership which, at the time, was a novelty in Venice. The idea we had in mind was to approach the traditional management of my family’s apartments from an entirely different angle, while at the same time resisting the attentions of those wanting to transform my family's palazzo into a prestigious hotel. Our aim was to offer these apartments, as well as those of friends, for rental to an international clientele who’d take pleasure in the comfort, freedom and authenticity of ‘living at home as a Venetian’ rather than merely observing the city from the confines of an anonymous hotel room or suite. The common denominator then, as now, was to offer ‘something extra’ amidst an already extraordinary city - an added dimension which turns a ‘stay’ into an ‘experience’ and a 'dream' into 'reality'.
Well-designed and perfectly placed for exploring Dorsoduro, the apartment is also just around the corner from the ‘Traghetto’ at Calle Lanza which, during operating hours, ferries passengers by gondola across the Grand Canal to ‘Campo Del Traghetto’ (next to the Gritti Palace Hotel) allowing you to discover the many sights and sounds of the district of San Marco and beyond. A beautiful apartment in a prime location – very close to the Zattere for a memorable after dinner stroll at sunset and ideal for indulging in a spot of Venetian day-dreaming while sitting on the steps of the nearby Salute and gazing across the ‘bacino’ to the splendours of St.Mark’s.
