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. 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/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 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.

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.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Such a well-equipped, warm and cozy apartment! In a quiet area a bit off the beaten path, its still convenient to anything you’d want to see. What was an extra special treat was the music school across the canal. We sipped our wine early one evening and were gifted with a piano concert that was truly magnificent. Our hosts, Elisa and Hans, went out of their way to make sure our stay was flawless, even as we were dealing with unusual rains and floods. Based on their recommendations we got to experience Venice the way the locals do and were treated to exceptional dining delicacies. You will be pleased if you choose to stay in this quaint apartment.

A word of advise to travelers to Venice - pack light. You don’t want to have to lug heavy suitcases through the streets and over the bridges.

Herbst in Venedig

  • 5 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 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!
