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.

What a Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 4 with a 19 and 20 year old. It was easy to get the water bus from the airport to the local stop, then literally a 3 minute walk to the apartment. ...The apartment was everything we had hoped for, with lively restaurants and a supermarket all within a 2 minute walk and the fruit barge just across the way. St Marks was a little further at around a 15 minute walk, but included crossing various canals and various squares and so the walk was never an issue. All in all would highly recommend and would use again.

Family of 4 / five countries. This was, The Best Apartment we stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

Venice was the best... and alot of it had to do with this apartment. Not the crazy busy neighborhoods, but close to everything we needed. Explored the island and took the tours. At the end of the day great beds and plenty of entertainment in the house. Movies, games, laundry machine, and restaurants outside the door. Canal infront of apartment for ambience. Now remember there hasn't been a new residence built in Venice for along time, so expect old world charm. Clean and comfortable. Our kids said they will be coming back here and staying in this unit. Thanks for sharing Jon. It was hard to leave.

Great apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Venice was beautiful! This apartment was great for our family of four. Its is in a good location and has all the amenities you'll need. Our two teenage boys loved the selection of movies and the Sonos sound system. Upon arrival our greeter met us from the water taxi to take us to the apartment. She was lovely and very helpful.

Perfecto!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the spacious, welcoming apartment, with excellent soundproof walls. It was quiet and dark when we woke up even though it is located on a fairly busy street. There were wonderful restaurants and coffee spots nearby. Loved the stereo sound system which my son knew how to operate since I am old school. The greeter was kind and sympathetic to our problem contacting her. I wish we could have stayed for longer!

Lovely, clean apartment in wonderful Dorsoduro

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment, perfect for our family of four, in a really great part of Venice. Clean, well-stocked with wonderful books, movies, games. A/C was helpful. Views are great. Both Jonathan and his local agent were very helpful. This is a great neighborhood for a multi-night stay. Close but not too close; with fantastic neighborhood cafes, gelato places, a supermarket, the works. Highly recommended.

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.
