Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Cannaregio - Real Venice on a quiet canal

Apartment, 1 1/2 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 max 3)

The house: Remodeled part of 16th century monastery with central heating, in the heart of Cannaregio, near Ca'D'oro and Santi Apostoli, between Strada Nuova and Fondamenta Nuove. Central Location: on foot 5 min. to the Rialto Bridge and 12min. to San Marco. Very quiet and safe!

Until Fall 2011 there have been CANAL WORKS next to our house which have COME TO FINAL COMPLETION! They have removed all the scaffolding and now you can enjoy the beautiful and peaceful view without any obstacle. ADSL and WIFI work very well and you will appreciate the flexible design lamps to read in bed, a new mattress and a new TV set with a large LCD screen with satellite decoder and plenty of international channels.

The apartment is on the 2nd floor (in Europe 1st floor) with very easy flight of stairs.

Each room is independent and you access them all through 5 doors in the entrance: the main bedroom has a kingsize bed and 3 windows, the living room has 2 sofas and 3 windows on canal, sit-in kitchen with window on canal, bathroom with window, air conditioning and central heating. You do not need to pass through any room to access the kitchen and the bathroom.

We rent our lovely, bright (total of nine windows), quiet, and comfortable flat for weekly stays all year round, usually from Saturday to Saturday to 2 people only.

You can experience Venice like a real Venetian and have a unique, charming approach to this wonderful city which is still very lively and human. The perfect central location just off the tourist track, the view from the many windows overlooking the Canal San Andrea (see photos from the different three living room windows), the wooden beam ceilings in the living room and in the kitchen, the charming main bedroom, the functional bathroom with cabin shower and washing machine, and the elegant furniture make it a special place. What used to be a small second bedroom is only for private use when we are there.

In 2008 we added air conditioning to offer refreshment during hot summers. For those who don't like it we have very good fans and if you keep the shutters closed when you are away the apartment keeps cool anyway.

Local shopping is great. We suggest you take the gondola ferry 'Traghetto Santa Sofia' 2 min. for a few cents to the Rialto Fish and Vegetable Market where you can buy the best fresh food in town, also recomended a BILLA supermarket at San Felice, 3 min. away, open all day seven days a week and the best typical restaurants happen to be nearby.

The neighborhood is very lively, safe and central. In two minutes you can reach the nearest boat station Ca' D'Oro (nine min.boat ride to the train station and 12min. to Piazzale Roma-link to the mainland and airport) and just one minute from the flat you can find the best and most typical venetian 'cicchetti' at local Baccari and restaurants nearby. From the near Fondamenta Nuove you take the boats to the Airport, to the wonderful Islands of Torcello, Murano e Burano and to the famous Lido with the glamorous hotels and beaches(Visconti's Death in Venice, Film Festival, etc.).

Usually no pets. The flat is on the second floor (Europe first floor) therefore even if there is no lift you just have to walk up only 16 comfortable steps . Smoking is NOT allowed inside! Please take a walk if you cannot resist.

Note: We rent it WEEKLY in the frame Saturday to Saturday. It is our second home, we and our friends and family are also often there on holiday, and this helps keeping the apartment always in its best efficiency as we keep improving it and doing repairs during our several stays all year round. Rates during Carnival, Easter, New Year's Eve, Biennale and peak weeks are higher. Discounts are offered for longer stays (two weeks or longer) especially in the low season. Special last-minute offers may be available to fill open dates.

For those who fear ACQUA ALTA: do not worry, it is a tide, not a flood, and as it comes in our street for a few centimeters it also goes away. San Marco is one of the lowest area, Strada Nuova is pretty free of 'acqua alta'. We monitor the tides and keep you informed when it is higher than usual. We provide a choice of brand new rubber boots so that you can explore and have fun and experience something unique. It is not a danger for tourists. It is hard and sad for the people and shops on the ground floor.

The city of Venice is doing major works in all canals to improve the ecology and the solidity.

We kindly ask our guests when back home to write a comment in the vrbo guest book. Most tell us on the phone or by email how charming and comfortable it is but we would like also other potential guests to read it. Thank you!

We can talk on the phone about details, but please first write an email with your landline and we are happy to call you back. If we publish our phone we are flooded by calls from other websites offering us their service.

About Elisa and Hans

We are a couple involved in the arts and culture and love Venice and we are happy that our guests can share the experience when we are not there.

Elisa and Hans purchased this apartment in 1979

Why Elisa and Hans chose Cannaregio

Our area (Ca' d' Oro - Santi Apostoli) is one of the most TRUE part of central historical Venice. It is very close to all tourist destinations but at the same time safe, quiet and most human.

What makes this apartment unique

Staying in our apartment in the very heart of the old center allows you to experience this unique city like a real Venetian with all comforts you need for a memorable holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Elisa,

we wish to tell you how much we appreciate your apartment in Venice. We just returned from our second three week stay and look forward to another three weeks in 2011. We find your place to be well equipped and comfortable. The location suits us very well since Cannaregio area is very convenient to the Rialto market for food shopping renowned world wide and far enough from the heavy tourist areas to be comfortable.

Herbst in Venedig

  • 5 out of 5
Meine Schwester und ich haben sechs Tage im Oktober in Venedig verbracht. Nachdem wir dem seltsamen Duft im Wohnzimmer auf die Spur gekommen waren und den kleinen Behälter mit Antimückenmittel (?) von der Steckdose getrennt hatten (Ende Oktober gibt es wohl keine Mücken mehr in Venedig), konnten wir uns in dieser gemütlichen Wohnung mit dem traumhaften Kanalblick und in wunderbar ruhiger Lage rundum wohl fühlen: Die Kommunikation mit Elisa und Hermann funktionierte perfekt, der Ton war herzlich. Dank der klaren Wegbeschreibung fanden wir unser Feriendomizil auf Anhieb, Signora Trez erwartete uns und übergab uns die Schlüssel. Die Wohnung war blitzsauber, es lagen und hingen Hinweise/Informationen aus, so dass wir uns sofort mit allem zurecht fanden (Nachfragen wären aber auch jederzeit möglich gewesen). Die Wohnung liegt sehr günstig. Nach wenigen Minuten Fußweg erreicht man eine Vaporettostation am Canal Grande, in der Gegenrichtung ebenso schnell Stationen für verschiedene Vaporettolinien und für Alilaguna (Flughafenzubringerboot) am offenen Wasser. In der Umgebung gibt es viele gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, diverse Restaurants, Cafés etc. Ein Gang über den nahen Rialto-Markt ist ein Fest, nicht nur für Selbstversorger (in dieser Jahreszeit gab es Steinpilze wie aus dem Bilderbuch, Artischocken, Zucchiniblüten, auf dem Fischmarkt werden die Augen garantiert größer als der Magen) und Mitbringselsucher. Schön war es, nach ausgiebigen Streifzügen durch die Stadt oder einem Ausflug zum Lido mit Bad im Meer „nachhause“ zu kommen und abseits der Touristenpfade im für uns schönsten Bezirk Venedigs auf den blauen Sofas oder auch am Esstisch in der Küche bei einem Glas Wein den Tag Revue passieren zu lassen. Manches Buch aus dem großen Bestand hätten wir gern gelesen, aber die Zeit war zu kurz, das Wetter zu gut. Fazit: gern möchten wir wiederkommen.

Immersed in the local culture

  • 4 out of 5
Wonderful location in a residential area where we felt like we really immersed ourselves from the moment the morning bells started ringing to late at night when the fisherman returned and cleaned their boats. A wonderful piano concert across the canal greeted us upon our arrival. a lovely stay!

Owner's Response: We are happy our guests can still discover some local aspects of Venetian culture which is usually well hidden by the tourist industry! The address is in a most central location - just off one of the busiest street- but the few steps away and one single bridge take you away from it all! We are now looking forward to meeting the local fisherman…

Wonderful quiet location

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I just returned home after a fantastic week in Venice where we enjoyed the comforts of this attractive and well located apartment. It has the advantage of being on a narrow street and on a canal which means lots of windows and light. Looking out onto the canal from the kitchen and living room was very pleasant especially since there was not a cloud in the sky for the whole week! It is convenient to the vaporetto and to the giant fish and fresh produce market. We enjoyed cafe and cappuccino with a delicious croissant every morning at the small and very busy patisserie close by. We recommend this apartment without reservation as well as a week In Venice. Except a week isn't long enough to see everything and eat at every tempting trattoria, restaurant, etc. Bring good walking shoes. Venice is a dream for walkers!

Owner's Response: Wonderful guests who know how to explore Venice in and out! Mind the tip about good walking shoes...Our street is very quiet because it is not a passage way, it ends with steps to a canal. It is indeed 3 times wider than many other streets in Venice and of the smallest ones even 4 times! In any case the whole apartment has 9 windows and 3 directly on the canal and one on the corner.

Quiet comfort in the bustle.

  • 5 out of 5
Venice is a tourist mecca. If you try to visit the iconic locations in this city, you will invariably get lost, rub a lot of elbows, encounter vendors charming and occasionally obnoxious, and eat a variety of foods of marvellous and dubious quality. We had six such days, but it was a comfort to know that no matter what the day brought, we had a quiet, comfortable, well equipped apartment to return to. It was close to a market used by the locals, close to good coffee bars, a delicious pizzeria, and the vaporetto. In the evening, a walk along the almost deserted pathways and bridges yielded some of my favourite time exposures of reflections on small canals. We would return to this location when we return to Venice. Elisa was helpful and made herself available.

Ideal Location

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed for one week and enjoyed every minute! Perfect location, 5 minute walk to the Vaporetto stop to go everywhere in Venice. Quiet, residential area and yes, right on a canal! Lovely homey decor, comfortable bed and couch. Kitchen is perfectly equipped and great size for two. Across the Grand Canal from the Rialto Market for fresh fish and produce. Shops, restaurants and gelato within 5 minutes. Also a 10 minute walk to the lagoon for boat trips to Burano (we loved it) and Murano. Washing machine a real plus and we actually hung our laundry to dry outside! Air conditioner worked great. TV in bedroom only but we were so busy we never turned it on. Fabulous week in Venice, you really can walk everywhere from this apartment or take the convenient Vaporetto.
