Overview

About the property

2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment

Ca' Leonessa is a recently (2010) restored luxury apartment located in the heart of Venice. It is a short walk from the bus and railway stations. Due to its superb location all the sites of Venice are either within walking distance or a couple of stops on the vaporetto. In the furnishing of the apartment the prime consideration has been to create a comfortable and welcoming oasis for you after a busy days sight seeing in magical Venice.

The living room (which overlooks the canal and the Campo San Barnaba) features two Natuzzi sofa's (one double sofa bed) a Linn sound system and HD television with DVD/CD player.

Both bedrooms are bright and airy with comfortable beds and have plenty of hanging/storage space in the bespoke wardrobes. Bedroom 1 has a luxurious double bed with fine linens and traditional Venetian fabrics. Bedroom 2 has two single beds. Both bathrooms are fully tiled with power showers.

The kitchen has been hand built and features dining for 6.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We returned to Cologne after 3 wonderful days in Venice and we are sure, that we will return some time or other.



During our first stay in Venice years ago, we checked in in a hotel near Piazza San Marco - very expensive, very loud and without any atmosphere.



What a difference. Ca 'Leonessa is a luxurious flat in a wonderful part of the city - and very near to the Canale Grande and the other places of interest.



The meeting with the local guide was uncomplicated.



In the past we have rented flats in several cities (Barcelona, Rome, Vienna); but I can express, that we never had such a comfortable and well-positioned flat.



So I can recommend your flat one hundred percent to all my friends who will plan a visit to Venice.

Very well equipped and quality finishes and furniture. Fantastic location: all you need within 100 m

  • 5 of 5

Had great time. Very comfortable and well-appointed flat. Lots of bars, restaurants, good food shops all nearby and a great base from which to see Venice. Wee bit noisy at night but street noise is unavoidable if you live in the heart of a town. Highly recommend the flat.

great location!

  • 4 of 5

This would have gotten 5 stars from me but there is a small problem. Each room has a small step up or down. The floors are wood and you cannot see the elevation difference. I would highly suggest that a non skid rug be put down at each step so when you are walking you notice the change. I almost fell several times and I think that would solve the problem. Like I said that was the only thing wrong everything else including the location was fantastic!

Clean, comfortable, and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this apartment for our first trip to Venice. It was a wonderful stay in a wonderful city. The apartment was very clean and it is located very close to a supermarket that had everything we needed. Around the corner is a bakery where we purchased the most delicious croissants for breakfast at the start of each day. We walked everywhere we wanted to go but if not in the mood for walking, it was a short walk to a vaporetto stop. There was a fruit/vegetable boat located in the canal in front of the apartment which was a bonus. We met with Giulia, who gave us the key and the instructions for the apartment. She was terrific and she gladly answered all the questions we had. It was a pleasure staying here and we would highly recommend it to friends and family.

Beautiful apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Clean, stylish and well furnished. Was close to restaurants, groceries and a farm fresh produce market. 2 blocks from water bus stop. About a half hour walk to St marks square. Only issue was a bit of a sewer smell on arrival, but I think it was only because the traps had dried out. After we used the shower, it went away. Apartment managers were helpful and accommodating. Would definitely stay again.

Your first glimpse of Venice, the pearl of the Adriatic, is of a magnificent vision of a city rising from the waters of the lagoon. The unique light has fascinated artists and travellers for centuries. As perhaps the greatest trading state Venice has absorbed different cultures like no other City. Its unrivalled blend of cultures is evidenced in the truly magnificent array of architectural styles from Byzantine through to Renaissance elegance and even the neo Fascist architecture of the railway station.

The Grand Canal runs through the centre of the city with its numerous smaller canals and 400 plus bridges link the city and its succession of palazzi.

From the first refugees arriving to the rise of the great Venetian empire of the 13th century and the later Napoleonic invasion, Venice has it all.
