About the property

There are two apartments; you can rent them individually or all together



Apartments for rent in the most exclusive area of Venice, Dorsoduro.

Located on the Canal Ognissanti, between the Academy, Canal Grande and Zattere, Canale della Giudecca.

Even if it is right in the heart of the city (only 5 minutes away from Accademia, 15 minutes away from Rialto and Piazza S. Marco), it is not well known by the tourists and you can still live the authentic Venician atmosphere.

All the apartments face a beautiful canal and a bridge wellknown for artists which, if you are lucky, you will be able to watch them at work.

You can easily reach the boat (vaporetto) stop 'Zattere' in 2/3 minutes walking distance or the boat stop Accademia in 5 minutes walking distance.

The vaporetti go to the Train Station, to the Liido (sea), S. Marco, Rialto, etc.

In 2/3 minutes walking distance you can reach the boat stop of ALILAGUNA Lines, at Zattere, or take a private taxi-boat, connecting you with Marco Polo Airport.

Near the house (five minutes walking) there is the best supermarket in Venice, the 'Billa', where you can find all the food (tipical venetian, italian or international) you need.

About Andrea Ciannavei

Hello! I'm Andrea, this property is owned by my family from many, many years. I live in Rome with my wife and my two children. But often we go to Venice to follow the apartments and enjoy the city.

I'm a lawyer, I love the music, football and cinema.

When there is the Film Festival in Venice, I always go to see the film releases.

Andrea Ciannavei purchased this house in 1970

Why Andrea Ciannavei chose Dorsoduro

This property is unique for the location, in the city center.

It is located in one of the most beautiful places in Venice, away from the crowds of tourists. It is close to the ferries and in 5 minutes you can find all kinds of shops. Rarely reaches the high water, is one of the highest points in the city. The apartment is equipped with two brand new bathrooms with two showers spacious and comfortable.

What makes this house unique

These apartments have a wonderful view on one of the more beautiful Venetian canals; it is possible to get the door of the house directly from the water taxi. In addition, the apartment is located in a building, as the Palace is a single property, where there are two other apartments, and can accommodate groups up to 12 guests, with the advantage of having each one its own privacy and their comfort.

Great place

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is great, very spacious, good showers, nice kitchen, clean and beautiful views of the canal. The only problem was mosquitoes at night, and since living room did not have an ac, we all got bitten pretty bad since windows were open. Otherwise amazing place!

renter beware!!!!!!!!

  • 1 of 5

It was a bait and switch property. He listed it as a grand location as if it was easy to access We ended up on the third floor with over 60 long steep stairs to climb each time we came or left. This was very hard for our handicapped friends.

The greeter was very difficult to reach, the apartment only supplied one roll of toilet paper for four people for four days. You get the hint. No extras in this place. Whenever we used the microwave, we had to find the breaker on the bottom floor from the dark. Apartment. We were on a quiet section, but the construction directly across the way started first thing in the morning, and it was jack's hammers, etc..

. All these things were not spoken by the owner or their local representative. Venice was special but this apartment is not!!!!

Owner's Response: The guest didn't write that someone in the group was handicapped; in the first message asked for the lower apt., but I replied that only the top floor was available. The apt.s ate in a very old building (XVIII century) and there is not the elevator. In the advertisement it is clearly written that it is not wheelchair accessible. I replied immediately to all the messages of the guest, so there was not difficult to reach me. The bathroom is supplied with one roll of toilet paper, but in the apt. there are moreover: you have only to ask for, if you don't find it. In front of the apt. there is a magnificent building, the former French Consulate; someone is working on it to transform it in a Hotel. For this reason I apologize if there are rumors for this, but it is not my fault and I think they are respecting the Italian laws for rumors and the time for working. At least: this guest did not pay the additional night he asked for

The Peonia was a little rough around the edges

  • 4 of 5

Loved the neighborhood and the many stairs were not even that intimidating but the bathroom turned out to be an accident waiting to happen. The shower curtain pole fell on my head bringing the shower curtain down and almost causing me to fall. I understand that the other apartments have renovated modern bathrooms. This apartment should not be rented until the bathroom is properly fixed.

Loved Venice

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Venice a bit apprehensive on how to arrive, what to see and where to go. Our hosts were excellent in giving information to our taxi driver, meeting us and walking us to the apartment. We had one suitcase that arrived 3 days late and they graciously helped us with that as well. The apartment was lovely, spacious and we enjoyed our stay tremendously. The location was excellent for sightseeing and walking around the city. I highly recommend this location. We stayed in Orchidea apartment.

Fantastic apartment. Very central.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartments. Everything you need (except a kettle, which would be so much better especially if large number staying in both apartments). Very well organised arrival meeting. One of our party left some dresses in the wardrobe and emailed to tell them and they posted them straight back to us. Fantastic service. Apartment is just like photographs. Very central for everything. We had both apartment and had everything we needed. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again. Thank you so much.
