Overview

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 and AC, 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!

And from the windows 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 brand new TV set with a large LCD screen with satellite decoder and plenty of international channels. (see full list of amenities)

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, washing machine, 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 9 windows), quiet, and comfortable flat for weekly stays all year round, usually from Saturday to Saturday to 2 people, max 3 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. to the Rialto Fish and Vegetable Market where you can buy the best fresh food in town, also recomended a grocery supermarket at San Felice, 3 min. away, open all day seven days a week and the best typical restaurants happen to be nearby just off Strada Nuova and then along the Canale Misericordia, a few minutes from our a little more central area.

The neighborhood is very lively, safe and central. In two minutes you can reach the nearest boat station Ca' D'Oro (9 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. But do not worry, there are no personal things around and the wardrobe and the shelves in the bedroom are at your full disposal. As I wrote we are also on hoiday when we are there and come with our suitcases as you do. 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 in 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/homeaway 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 its Lagoon 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

We chose this area (Ca' d' Oro - Santi Apostoli) as it is one of the most TRUE part of central historical Venice. It is very close to all tourist destinations and transport facilities, 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 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.

We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in your lovely flat. We were very happy and comfortable and found everything we could possibly need, from a comfortable bed to lots of useful information. We hope we will be able to come back again.

Appartement cosy et calme dans un endroit charmant

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé la semaine du Carnaval de Venise 2015 (9-14 février) chez Elisa and Hans. L'appartement est confortable et calme, à 10 minutes de marche (avec 2 ponts) de Fondamenta Nueve (pour le transport en bateau vers l'aéroport), 3 minutes de la rue principale Strada Nuova où l'ou trouve tout y compris le supermarché Billa, 5 minutes de la station vaporetto Ca Doro.

Une grand chambre avec un grand lit confortable, une chambre plus petite qui conviendrait pour deux enfants ou un adulte, une cuisine avec une table pour deux, un salon avec 2 canapés et un fauteuil, et avec vue sur le canal (pas de circulation de gondoles).

Parce les propriétaires vivent là, l'équipement est plus que complet, comprenant l'internet ADSL, des bottes (en cas de crue), parappluies, café et machine à café, huile, sel, poivre, serviettes, prises electriques internationales, etc. etc. MERCI beaucoup à Elisa et Hans de partager ainsi leurs affaires. Ce sont vraiment des gens charmants.

Le chauffage est efficace et facile à régler.

Notre semaine fut un rêve, et nous espérons revenir!

Peut etre aussi dans notre maison de campagne près de Rome ou nous vivons toute l'annèe ( voir autres listings) ...Nous sommes souvent "en vacance" dans notre apartement de Venise pour assurer une bonne maintenance et pour actualiser les "amenities" selon la saison. A très bientot...

Cosy, quiet flat in a charming place / Appartement cosy et calme dans un endroit charmant

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2015 Carnival week (9 to 14 Feb) in Elisa and Hans' place. The appartement is comfortable and quiet, 10-minute walk with 2 bridges to Fondamenta Nueve (for boat transportation to airport), 3-minute to main street Strada Nuova where you can find everything, including supermarket Billa, 5-minute to vaporetto station Ca Doro.

One large bedroom with a large and comfortable bed, one smaller bedroom which could do for two kids or an adult, a kitchen with a table for two, a living room with 2 couches and one armchair, and with a view on a canal (no gondola traffic).

Because the owners live there, the equipment is more than complete, including internet ADSL, boots (in case of a flood), umbrellas, coffee and coffee machine, oil, salt and pepper, napkins, international electric plugs, etc. etc. Thanks so much to Elisa and Hans for sharing their things! They are lovely people indeed.

The heating is efficient and easy to set.

Our week was a dream, and we hope to come back!

Perfect choice!

  • 5 of 5

On my second trip to Venice, I wanted to experience the beautiful city as a "local" might. The apartment is lovely; located at the end of a street on a quiet canal. It is comfortably, beautifully, and artistically furnished and has all the modern amenities. Tranquil as it is, it is just about a 2 minute walk to the main shopping street of Strada Nuova and to the Ca' D'oro vaporetto stop. Everyday, I was able to shop locally for that night's dinner which I prepared in the fully equipped kitchen. My favorite part of each day was returning to this oasis of warmth and tranquility. I cannot say enough about how helpful the owners, Elisa and Hans, were. They were not in town at the time of my visit, but Elisa called me just moments after my arrival to welcome me, and on a morning when the acqua alta occurred, she called to make sure that I knew that there were boots in the apartment to deal with it. Prior to my arrival, she and Hans provided details on trips to nearby attractions I'd otherwise not have known of. My afternoon trip to the Armenian monastery at San Lazzaro is something I will never forget. They and their apartment made for a stellar second visit to Venice, and I hope for repeat stays in the future.

Best of all worlds! On a quiet canal a few minutes walk from busy street life and vaporetto stop

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time in this lovely apartment right on a small canal and would love to stay here again. The apartment itself was much roomier than we expected and everything was quite clean and worked well. The kitchen was well furnished and I can't say enough good things about how comfortable the bed was. Also delightful were the multiple windows letting in light, air and sometimes classical music from the palazzo across the canal. Elisa couldn't have been more helpful and even allowed us to stay an extra 4 nights which was greatly appreciated. She also sent us excellent directions and even a map which made it very easy to find the location (pretty unusual for Venice). Her husband, Hans is an artist whose work we very much enjoyed. There are 2 comfortable couches in the living room as well as brochures and books and even a port for my MP3 player. The location is ideal. 2 short blocks away from the main street and the vaporetto stop, but absolutely quiet and peaceful. There is a very large, well stocked grocery just to the right when you get to the main street. If you go to the left you will come to a wonderful butcher shop in about a block. This is a great neighborhood for wandering. One night we even heard an Italian Beatles cover band several blocks away on another canal, serendipity, indeed. We are so happy to have found Elisa and Hans and their wonderful apartment.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment met our needs and our expectations in every way. Clean, comfortable, and convenient. We arrived during the aqua alta, and Elisa and Hans met us at the vaporetto stop with boots in order to walk the short distance to their apartment--and we used our wellies throughout a rainy week. They are excellent hosts, providing great recommendations. It was wonderful to be away from the tourist center, yet to be close enough to walk to all the major sites. We heartily endorse this location for your stay in Venice.

Owner's Response: Thank you! We are happy when guests do share with complicity and enthusiasm the peculiarities of Venice. Afterall bridges, acqua alta, fog and rain contribute to make it a unique experience. This especially in some periods of the year during the so called low season when the city is not so crowded with tourists and one can enjoy the silence of the canals and of the side streets as well as visits to museums and other monuments without queing like everywhere in the world in peak season.
