Photos and Description of the Cannaregio vacation apartment rental

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 max 4)

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 of Canale San Andrea without any obstacle. ADSL and WIFI work very well and you will appreciate the flexible design lamps to read in bed, new mattresses 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. There is also a small second bedroom if 2 guests prefer separate rooms or for a 3rd person or a couple.

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 (10 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. But do not worry, there are no personal things around and the wardrobe and the shelves in the bedroom are at your full disposal. As I wrote we are also on holiday when we are there and come with our suitcases as you do. 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 in 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.
