A perfect choice!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in Attilia's beautiful apartment. We selected it because of its beautiful situation with balconies over a quiet back canal that provided views that did not disappoint ( pure Venice!) We found the apartment very comfortable and roomy with an atomosphere of a cosy home. The kitchen was exceptionally outfitted which made home cooking a breeze.

The location proved to be really excellent. Very close to neccesities with a green grocery, salumeria, grocery store, and wine store within a block. An easy walk to San Marco, and just few blocks from the grand canal in one direction and the Foundamente Nove to catch the ferries to the airport and islands in the other, Yet it is on a quiet street off the tourist tracks. I would return to this apartment again without hesitation, we loved it.

It was a pleasure to deal with Attilia and Oriel, the caretaker who lives just above on the top floor who was there to answer our questions and help us understand the clothes washer.

Lovely Apartment in Canneregio

  • 4 of 5

We have recently returned from a second wonderful holiday in Venice. We had good weather and staying in the city for a whole week this time, meant we were able to explore many new parts of it, including the islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello, each with their own individual character.

We so enjoyed staying in Attilia's lovely apartment, with its balcony and terraces overlooking the canal below. The cleaning lady had done an excellent job prior to our arrival and the apartment was well appointed, in a good location with two supermarkets nearby and was just right for our needs. Our friends had the second bedroom which they found very comfortable. They did suggest however that having a mirror in their room would be a helpful addition to future guests, rather than using the one in the bathroom.

Orial, (Attilia's assistant) was friendly, professional and very helpful, even meeting us at Fondamenta Nuove when we arrived, which we didn’t expect.

Many thanks Attilia, for all the help you gave us, plus all the useful information you provided about your apartment and staying in Venice. We are so glad that we choose D’Oria House.

The Real Venice

  • 5 of 5

I adored my two week stay in Attilia's flat. The first floor location was perfect after days jam-packed with sightseeing. The flat was so wonderful that there were several days I didn't venture out of the apartment until noon. I LOVED the beautiful terraces overlooking the canal. The apartment is close to the Strada Nuova business district yet far away enough to be peacefully quiet. You can find everything you need on Strada Nuova including the Billa market.

The air-conditioning worked blissfully well during the hot and humid Venetian summer. I considered my little flat my oasis from all the crowds and noise that are a constant presence in Venice. Cannaregio, where the apartment is centrally located to all the sights and just a 5 minute walk to the Rialto Bridge . It's about 15 to Piazza San Marco.

The apartment was clean and tidy and had everything you would need to cook your meals. Since cooking isn't my thing, I didn't cook, but, made good use of the refrigerator to keep my prosecco and cheeses chilled. The wine and prosecco from the barrel wine shop around the corner is inexpensive and delightful. I enjoyed it nightly on my terrace while watching the gondolas go by.

As a photo enthusiast, I would often leave the flat at 7 am to take photos in the peaceful post dawn light. I made a habit of going daily to Gelato Fantasy for their AMAZING amarena cherry gelato .. sometimes as early as 9 am! I also enjoyed the polpete meatballs at nearby Alla Vedova and had a nice meals at Casa Mia and Trattoria da Bepi Gia 54

By far, however, my favorite restaurant was Hosteria al Vecio Braggoso where I ate three nights in a row. The staff was friendly and attentive. I was greeted with a glass of proesseco, a sherbet cleanser and on my last night a lovely dessert ... all on the house. I am a fish lover so I only had fish there, all of which delightful. Enrico, is charming and the restaurant's decor is quaint and cozy.

Attilia's follow up is impeccable and she was very helpful with all my questions and with helping me decide what transportation to use. Her directions from the Grand Canal (where the shared taxi dropped me) to the flat were perfect! Be sure to ask Tota about the back streets the locals use to get around to avoid the crush of tourists.

My only word of caution is to be sure you understand that you will be unable to enter the apartment before 4 pm - You can leave your bags but, not enter.

Solace in Venice

  • 4 of 5

This apt was heaven in Venice. The six days were very hot and we had this roomy apt to come back to for a mid day rest, cool down and shower. It had great air conditioning, fridge with ice and cold drinks and a shower. We had balconies on a canal and watched the interesting way of life in Venice in a way that hotel stays couldn't show you. WE saw construction work being done from a barge and daily deliveries by boat to the grocery store near by. Also a fruit stand yards away from our door. It is in a quiet residential area but with good shopping and restaurants. The people that run it are very nice and helpful. I would stay here again.

wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for close to 3 months. The location could not have been better for our needs. There is school close by for my son, shopping was a joy (as long as you don't have to go to Co-op or Billa) with frommaggi, wine shop, fruit & veggie stand close by.

Inside the apartment has everything you need and clean. The kitchen is functionable, the living room comfortable and the beds were firm and clean. The shower/bath unit is what you expect in europe and while not perfect, the water was hot and plentiful.

We had a terrific stay and Attilia was very attentive when we needed her.

Truly Venetian!

  • 5 of 5

If you have found this Canaregio flat, you have found the BEST place to stay! 2 out of 2 vacation property owners (myself and the one below) agree, along with many other satisfied guests. Attilia has made sure everything on our list of amenities was ticked: location, wifi, washer, owner operated and cared for, location (very important!), spacious, comfortable, well outfitted and appointed, excellent location!

We loved living in the "neighborhood" where kids played soccer in the "street", a green grocer was just a 1/2 block away, grocery store around the corner along with a bulk wine store that sold prosecco for 3.5 Euro/liter!

Gondolas frequently passed by our balconies and added to the charm already present in our flat. There was always something interesting coming down the canal and we enjoyed this each evening as we had our aperitivo on the patio, relaxing after a busy day exploring the sights in Venice.

We could not have found a better place to stay where we felt so welcome by our host and our neighbors in the building. The location made everything so accessible by walking or vapperetto to other parts of Venice, and the airport or train. Perfect Venetian apartment!
