About the property

Luminous, elegant apartment with 2 balconies over the canal

'The Italian Job' movie has been shooted on the canal downstairs here. Very luminous and airy. The elegance of the venitian mosaic floor, the Murano glass chandeliers, the antique furniture and fabrics is joined with the modernity and functionality of the kitchen and bathrooms. The apartment was restored while the building was left in its original state. The front door opens into a grand entrance that is surrounded by four bedrooms (one master, one double and one queen with an attached studio and sofa bed), living room, kitchen and two bathrooms, one with a bathtub and one with a shower. From the balconies, you can enjoy the view of the gondolas gliding by. Air conditioned, timed with magnetic card to be paid separately, based on usage. Third level, 6 flights of stairs. No elevator!!

Gorgeous apartment in a fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property! Location was great..very close to the train station and about 25 minute walk from San Marco Square. Luca was a great host. He picked us up at the train station and provided fabulous recommendations and helpful tips. our only regret is we wish we would have stayed longer in Venice! Thank you!

We really enjoyed our stay. Everything we needed was provided, including a juicer for fresh orange juice and needle and thread for my sons pants that had torn. I love the book that was provided to show the history and help direct us on things to do. I love the market just below us, fresh fruit , vegetables and bread. We loved our stay in Venice and appreciate all the little details of the apartment . I love the quietness of the area and closeness to the Grand Canal and shops. Very comfortable and relaxing experience.

Beautiful apartment, amazing views, great neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment looks just like the photos; beautiful, well cared for and clean. You can step out onto a small balcony and see breathtaking views of the canal below. My husband and I were here our last three days in Venice at the end of a seven day academic tour of Veneto. We had stayed in beautiful hotels but wanted to experience a neighborhood away from the tourist area. This was the perfect choice. There is a small market close by, a short walk to a neighborhood bakery where we ate breakfast each morning, and a wine store across from the bakery. Also, very good restaurants within walking distance. The water bus to the tourist area is close also. The owner, Luca, is very helpful with suggestions and information. He and his niece were kind and gracious to us. We have beautiful memories from our stay at 'Casa Lia'. One suggestion: pack light. There are many steps to navigate in Venice over canals and up to this apartment. Enjoy!!

Luca and his apartment are the best

  • 5 of 5


I must say you and your apartment were the best. You went well beyond what could be expected to help out our three couples. You helped us with advice regarding getting help for our illnesses. Your apartment was more than we we expected. Your help with the porters and everything was much appreciated. I can't say enough regarding your hospitality and professionalism. Thank you for making our stay in Venice so memorable. I would recommend you and your apartment to anyone.

Car: not necessary

Luxury apartment in the historical center in a good position to visit the city. Complete restoration in 2009 with two balconies over looking the canal. A few minutes from the train station and Piazzale Roma (bus terminal). Close to the Grand Canal, Campo San Giacomo dell'Orio, the Frari Church, the School of San Rocco and Rialto Bridge. The apartment is in Santa Croce, an interesting area of Venice with 'bacari' and small typical restaurants. Air conditioning

Other Activities: cultural activities
