Overview

Venice city center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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.

Very Comfortable and NO STAIRS!

  • 4 of 5

After spending a month travelling Europe and carrying luggage up or down stairs (sometimes very narrow) we were delighted to stay somewhere on the ground floor. The apartment is comfortable, well located and had the kitchen facilities we needed to avoid eating out every night. It's on a canal so you can watch a gondolier go right past the window - there are curtains for privacy too. It is just far enough away from the 'main drag' (Str. Nova) that we didn't feel constantly overwhelmed by tourists.

Word of warning: if you plan to do laundry, give yourself at least 3 days for drying since the humidity makes it difficult.

Wonderfulcplace away from the crowds

  • 5 of 5

Eva was great at communicating via email prior arrival. the place was perfect and we loved how quit and away it was from all the crowds, yet very close walking to everything, center, villa food store and many restaurants. The place was just perfect, made staying in venice feel like living there, thank you Eva.

Venice is lovely!

  • 4 of 5

It is true that Eva is very easy to communicate with and the apartment was clean and perfect for a short stay. We liked the quiet location (although we found that sometimes late at night there can be some rowdies even on the quiet canals!), and loved the restaurants just behind. My only comment might be that the apartment is perfect for 2 people. 3 people can make it work and maybe even 4, but there was hardly an inch of room to open the chair bed for the 5th person. And, all those people in the family room crowded the air in a room that didn't have air condition. While I was very comfortable in the master bedroom, my children were not. I see now from reading thru the comments again that there was maybe a fan somewhere or even an air conditioner in the kitchen? It would be nice to have directions on where these items are or how to operate them. Thanks for a nice stay!

Excellent Accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for a better accommodation, the apartment is very accessible from the airport and is a short walk from all the main attractions, restaurants and supermarket.

If you are wanting to experience the real Venice and stay in a quieter area away from all the hustle and bustle of the town centre then this apartment is the one for you!

The rooms are spacious, clean and well maintained. Eva in particular was very accommodating and couldn't do more to help. She answered any queries I had and made sure we had the best experience of Venice.

I would definitely stay here again :)

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Ca' Bianca! Eva was wonderful to work with prior to our stay, and answered all our questions promptly. Her representative, Tanja, met us promptly at the Alilaguna stop and could not have been nicer. She showed us around the flat and how to use the air conditioner, as well as answered all of our questions. I'm not sure how the previous reviewer had problems communicating with her, we had no trouble at all. She even helped drag our luggage from the water taxi stop, which was totally unexpected.

The flat itself is in a very quiet, yet centrally located area. The first couple of days we used the vaporetto to get to Rialto amd St. Mark's Square. By the third day we found out by accident that it was MUCH quicker to walk to these places.

There was a grocery store nearby, and the closest vaporetto stop was maybe a 6-7 minute walk. We had a little trouble finding it the first day, but once we did it was very comvenient. It is actually across from the only McDonald's in Venice!

We did not do a lot of cooking, but the kitchen was well-stocked if we had wanted to. Eva had even left us a small basket of cookies and other goodies which was very nice of her!

The king size bed was very comfortable, and the main bathroom was a very good size. There was 5 of us staying there, and the only (very minor) problem we had was in that there wasn't really enough seating for all of us in the living room. We made do by dragging a couple of kitchen chairs in, or just sitting at the kitchen table.

I would not hesitate to stay there again if we ever find ourselves in Venice again. Thanks Eva for a wonderful stay!

Perfect stay once again!

  • 5 of 5

Once again our stay at Ca' Bianca was wonderful. Fantastic location with all amenities such as supermarkets, banks great restaurants and good shopping within easy walking distance. The Rialto Bridge and San Marco's Basilica are fascinating and it's an easy walk with many interesting stops on the way to get there. We would recommend taking the lift to the top of the bell tower in the main Piazza, the views are spectacular!

Eva is lovely to deal with and always very helpful with any inquiries. The apartment is safe, very clean and well equipped. Beds are comfortable and the bathroom fresh and modern. Also having a washing machine is a great bonus. The Cannaregio area is a lovely, quiet neighbourhood where it's easy to feel like one of the locals going about their daily lives. The Trattorias and restaurants along the Fondamenta della Misericordia are worth a visit and it's lovely to sit at one of the outdoor tables on a nice evening. The bottle of Prosecco waiting for us on arrival was a lovely thought. Thanks Eva!!

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment and hope one day to return if we are lucky enough to visit beautiful Venice again.

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.
