WONDERFUL LOCATION TO STAY IN VENICE WITH CANAL VIEW

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Cannaregio

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-5)

The apartment has been recently refurbished with all the recent comforts and tastefully furnished with many antique pieces of furniture. The style is original Italian liberty. It's at the second floor, sunny and offers an extended view over a Canal on one side and a characteristic courtyard on the opposite side. It is comfortable for up to 5 people. It consists of: 1 living/dining room with a sofa bed, 1 large bedroom with a king size bed, 1 small bedroom with 1 single bed and an extra folded bed, modern kitchen/dining-room (fully equipped for gourmet cook with fridge, freezer, washing machine, kettle, coffee maker, two ovens and all utensils and many recipes), 1 luxury marble bathroom with shower enclosure, 2 balconies and a lanai with sun curtains and table for candle light supper.

The location is in the 'Cannaregio' neighborhood, few steps from Jewish Ghetto, where there is never a dull moment, thanks to its market, craft workshop, rowing clubs and Casino, while relaxation comes in the shady parks and laid-back cafés and bars that line the maze of back-street canals. You will be just a stone's throw away from tourist routes, shops, restaurants, 2 minutes walk to the 'vaporetto' (boat bus) stop, 10 minutes from the Railway Station and 15 minutes from the Rialto bridge.

Cannaregio is the epitome of real life in Venice (live there more than 60% of local citizen!).

Guestbook comments from the owner
We've been doing VRBO Rentals for the past five years and Carmen's place in Venice was one of the very best!! We loved it. The neighborhood, the view, the furnishings and everything about it was superb. Seldom do we stay in a place where the furnishings, art, library of reference books and every possible convenience are anywhere near what Carmen has provided. It is so close to everything. We were astonished to feel, within a few days, that is was home to us! Way to go Carmen. You get first prize!

LIFE IN THE CANNAREGIO

  • 5 out of 5
Quiet location in residential Cannaregio with view of canal. Easy access to vaporetto, train station, and restaurants. Well appointed apartment. Spacious bedrooms. Comfortable living room and functional kitchen. Laundry lines like a local. Flights of stairs friendly other than arrival and departure with bags. Clear communication with owner much appreciated.

CANADIANS IN VENICE

  • 5 out of 5
My friend and I, two senior women, just returned from three weeks in Italy. We stayed in Carmen and Mauro's lovely apartment for several nights. It was wonderful!!! Everything was clean and neat, well,ordered and comfortable. It was an easy walk from the train station and sweet Mrs Piosevan met us, just as promised. The location really could not be better! It was a quiet, beautiful refuge for us. I recommend it to anyone!!!!

WONDERFUL FLAT, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
This was our third visit to Venice, and we decided to try renting an apartment. Carmen and Mauro's apartment seemed ideal for us, and we were very pleased with our stay.

The flat is in a wonderful location, in a quiet spot just a couple of minutes from the heart of Canareggio. Many great bars and restaurants on the door step, and an ideal starting point for some lovely Venetian walks. With a nearby vaporetto and supermarket we were very happy with the location of the flat as a base for exploring.

When we arrived the flat was spotless, beautifully presented and fully equipped with all kitchen/household equipment. In particular, we loved the balcony off the front room which overlooked a small and pleasant canal with views of Venice in the background. It made a morning coffee most enjoyable!

We were very pleased with this property and would strongly recommend it for anyone who wants to stay in a less touristy region of Venice.

THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO STAY IN YOUR BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT

  • 5 out of 5
We had a moment of confusion in finding the apartment, because they were building a new wooden bridge and we had to find a new way of getting to the apartment. We walked past Ponte dei Tre Archi and then found the Calle de Cooperative. We found the apartment without any trouble.
When we reached the apartment, Signora Piovesan's granddaughter, the lovely Georgia, was there to show us around the apartment.
What a wonderful surprise! My son, David, loved the little balcony from his room.
The weather was so wonderful, lots of sunshine, that we sat outside on the big balcony.
We found the apartment to be perfect. It was big and full of light.
The lovely big bed was wonderful. And the linen!
The apartment is in a peaceful, lovely area of Venice. It was a joy to walk "home" every evening, take our shoes off and just relax with a glass of Prosecco.
I would recomment it as a wonderful place to stay. Big, full of light and filled with beautiful furniture.
I would love to go back and stay for longer.
Thank you.

NICE APARTMENT, QUIET AREA BUT A LITTLE BIT OF A GLITCH

  • 3 out of 5
Really to be fair the apartment itself should get 4 stars. Aside from the bed, which we both felt to be uncomfortable for us, the apartment is lovely and offers everything you need for a week's stay in Venice. I rated our overall experience as a 3 . . . Carmen is nice and accommodating but unfortunately she had forgotten to notify Mrs. Piovesan that we were arriving. Add the fact that the directions to reach the apartment were incorrect. When we did find the apartment Mrs. Piovesan was very surprised to see us. She spoke no English but we managed to communicate with my rusty Italian. Thank goodness she was home or we would have been on the street with no place to go! She was extremely sweet and let us into the apartment - an apartment that was still dirty for the last renters.

I had not expected to have to clean the apartment after a long day of travel but we did - we emptied trash, had to wash dirty dishes, make the bed, empty the washing machine - Mrs. P helped us clean the bathroom and helped with the bed. She was wonderful.

I tried calling Carmen several times but no answer. We have traveled to Italy and to Venice every year for the past 5 years, always renting apartments and this is the first time we were not expected and the first time the owner did not check with us to see if all was going well.

But we were in Venice and we didn't fret about the glitch for too long. There are many wonderful restaurants nearby the apartment along with the Billa. There were 3 vaporetto stops that we used - the closest was Guglie just about 3 -4 minutes away from the apartment on the Cannaregio Canal.

The apartment has a balcony in the front just off the living room overlooking a peaceful canal. On Sunday morning we could hear Mass being broadcast from the church just behind the apartment which I loved. Carmen has a terrific collection of cd's and guide books.

The tv is in the bedroom and had only 2 Italian channels that we could find even though there were hundreds of channels - mostly Middle Eastern programs. There are theatre seats at the end of the bed which we actually tried to sit on but fell, they are not bolted in so be careful. Lots of comfortable towels provided and a great shower! Great lighting too throughout the apartment.

Carmen did check in when she heard what had happened and apologized. She also was flexible with the number of nights we wanted to stay and promptly returned our deposit which we appreciated.

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry for the inconvenience I have caused to the guests. At the end of a long tourist season I forgot to notify to Mrs Piovesan the guest's arrival. Maybe a rebate should have been submitted to compensate the inconvenience. I will do and I promise to not forget never again. About the wrong directions I will investigate as it's the first time Guests complain about this. Venice is a labyrinth and even if you live in Venice you could lost your path ! Anyway I will do my best to improve instructions.
