Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4 + 1 kid

The house is located close to the Ghetto, one of the most charming and interesting city sites. You can find it at the ground floor of an ancient building (dated approx. 1600), recently renovated with precious finish (Venetian terrazzo and oak-beamed), delicately furnished with Venetian style furniture and equipped mod cons (air-conditioning, TV, microwave, high speed wifi internet connection). Ca'Bianca is approx. 60 sqm. The bright master bedroom with a king size bed, a closet and a dresser looks over Canale della Misericordia, many typical restaurants and on one of the most elegant Gothic style buildings of the Fondamenta;yet, it's very peaceful and quiet: few times a day a gondola or a small boat come by and you won't hear any other noise. There are two bathrooms, one of them looking on the same canal and having a shower, the second one with the washing machine. In the kitchen you will find the microwave, cookware & Kitchen utensils, toaster, coffee maker and anything else you may need to enjoy your stay.

Elegant apartment with romantic canal view: The house is located close to the Ghetto, one of the most charming and interesting from an historical point of view city sites. You can find it at the ground floor of an ancient building (dated approx. 1600), that overlooks Rio dei Servi and Rio della Misericordia. You can get in through a short Sottoportico and the entrance of the house is by itself. Recently renovated with precious finish (Venetian terrazzo and oak-beamed), delicately furnished with Venetian style furniture and equipped mod cons (air-conditioning both in the living room and in the bedroom, TV, microwave, high speed internet connection). There is a beautiful and bright master bedroom and a bathroom with shower that overlook on Rio della Misericordia and on one of the most elegant Gothic style buildings of the Fondamenta; there is then a living-room with a sofa bed and a lovely and well equipped kitchen looking at the ancient walls of the Misericordia ex-cloister.

Great location in the heart of the city: Cannaregio is one of the most genuine and picturesque sestieri of Venice: very quiet but at the same time lively thanks to daily activities of local people. Restaurants, cafès and stores to buy disparate foodstuffs are all very close. The house will let you empathize with Venetian life-style but at the same time will enable you to reach in a short time, on foot or by boat (vaporetto), the most important cultural sites and tourist attractions, like S. Marco and Rialto or the most striking islands of the lagoon.

Great place...wish I had more time!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Venice...only wish we had more time! The welcome packet was so helpful -- restaurants, transportation, and general info about the area - even photos with instructions as to how to work the appliances. They were gracious as we had a later arrival than expected and helped up navigate our way through the streets to the apartment. The area was close to the main street, but not as noisy and busy. Would love to return!!

Great location ..couple hints ..when you get to the location of the apt it's at the end of the tunnel. Also it's a short 20 min walk from the train or bus station ..we spent 60e on water taxi totally unnecessary. We enjoyed our time thx Eva !

Great location on a canal

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was quite comfortable. Our greeter E. met us at the train station & walked us to the apartment & went over the apartment features. We were able to leave our bags on the day of our departure until our train left in the afternoon. The washer worked great. The hot water was hot, beds were comfortable & the coffee pot worked. There is a great writing desk in the apartment which I used to write post cards on & journal. This was a wonderful experience. I would rent again from this owner/greeter. April 2017

3 jours formidables !

  • 5 of 5

Infos d'Eva avant notre départ très appréciables et très à l'écoute de nos besoins. Quelqu’un à notre arrivée pour nous emmener à l'appart charmant très fonctionnel et bien placé d'ailleurs : près de toutes commodités et de la rue principale tout en étant au calme. On a adoré se perdre dans les ruelles et traverser des petits ponts et des petits ponts ... Très romantique même si nous sommes venus avec des enfants de 4 à 14 ans ! Même eux ont appréciés ... Très beaux souvenirs et en plus super temps ! Le top

Peaceful and practical haven

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed here already a couple of years ago, it was an easy decision to book Eva's apartment for a return visit with our daughter.

We were not disappointed.

It is a charming place to stay, with a quiet canal along one side, and a slightly more bustling canalside vista out of the main bedroom and bathroom windows. This lends the place a Venice ambience without being intrusive. As last time, this place is such an oasis, and never too far from the sights, so we ended up returning regularly to refuel and take a break (particularly as toilets are expensive / fairly hard to find in Venice generally).

Coming to Venice in May (last time) or September (this time) is highly recommended as it is a bit cooler and I imagine less busy in the key spots.

For restaurants, definitely recommend Osteria Oliva Nera (vegetarian, book ahead).

We had a great holiday this year, going to several parts of Italy, and Eva's apartment was a key element of that experience.

The location of Ca’ Bianca is absolutely great!

Right outside the house, you will find S. Marziale church, which carries pictures by Tintoretto (16th century)! The Ghetto, the ancient Jewish area, is one of the most striking places in town and you can reach it in a few minutes walk.

On foot, it will take you 10 minutes walk to get to Rialto bridge and approx. 15 minutes to get to Piazza San Marco. In both cases, you can also take the boat (vaporetto): in 20 minutes you will get to S. Marco, driving through the Canal Grande, with its beautiful, ancient buildings.

I will be glad to provide detailed information to reach us both from the airport or the train station.
