About the property

High end duplex, fully renovated, quiet, sunny, spacious. Fully furnished with l

The apartment is a luxury duplex in early gothic Palazzo. The apartment has been fully renovated, with respect to its original colors, style and materials. You will find that it is an extremely pleasant stay, because it is quiet, very sunny, spacious: the apartment measures 140 sqm (1506 square feet). There are three confortable bedrooms, a large, fully functional, nicely equipped modern kitchen, three bathrooms and large living room. The living room has a fireplace. the apartment is fully furnished with all necessary conforts, and has a southerly view on a calm canal. All amenities are available: 41 inches LCD TV, Bose sound system with DVD, Internet access with Wi-Fi, A/C. I just purchased a very comfortable, modern couch from the famous italian design brand 'Living' - you will find it quite amazing.

The area of Cannaregio is very venetian, all shops are in the vicinities: market, butcher, groceries, fish, bars, restaurants, banks, supermarket, pharmacies, all within a 200/400 meters radius. The apartment accomodates up to 6 people.

Cannaregio is the northernmost of the six historic sestieri (districts) of Venice. It is the second largest sestiere by land area and the largest by population,

The Cannaregio Canal , which was the main route into the city until the construction of a railway link to the mainland, gave the district its name. Development began in the eleventh century as the area was drained and parallel canals were dredged. Although elegant palazzos were built facing the Grand Canal, the area grew primarily with working class housing and manufacturing. The history of the Ghetto of Venice is particuarly fascinating. When on March 29th, 1516 the Government of the Serenissima Repubblica issued special laws, the first Ghetto of Europe was instituted. It was an area where Jews were forced to live and which they could not leave from sunset to dawn. The area was closed by gates watched by guards and up till now the marks of the hinges are visible there. Jews were allowed to practice only some professions: they were doctors, because they were the most prepared and able to understand Arab writings, money lenders, because Catholic religion forbade this practice, merchants and 'strazzarioli', ragsellers. However, Jews held successful positions in the city such as merchants, physicians, money lenders, and other trades. The Ghetto existed for more than two and a half centuries, until Napoleon conquered Venice and finally opened and eliminated every gate (1797): Jews were finally free to live in other areas of the city.

In the 19th century, civil engineers built a street named Strada Nuova through Cannaregio, and a railway bridge and road bridge were constructed to connect Venice directly to Mestre. Today, the areas of the district along the Grand Canal from the train station to the Rialto Bridge are packed with tourists, but the rest of Cannaregio is residential and relatively peaceful, with morning markets, neighborhood shops, and small cafés.

Schöne Unterkunft im Cannaregio - gute Lage!

  • 4 of 5

Die Unterkunft ist ruhig gelegen, nahe an der Wasstaxi-Station Madonna dell'Orto (Alilaguna zum Flughafen) und nahe an der Fondamenta Misericordia mit zahlreichen Lokalen.

Unterkunft entspricht der Beschreibung, schöner Palazzo mit stilvoller Einrichtung.

Der Kontakt mit dem Vermieter war sehr angenehm, gute Informationen im Vorfeld und problemloser Kontakt vor Ort.

Insgesamt ein sehr angenehmer Aufenthalt.

Vielen Dank!

Bel appartement avec une âme,plein de charme , un quartier authentique loin des hordes de touristes

  • 5 of 5

Cannaregio est un quartier resté authentique , calme mais près de tout avec un vaporetto tout près , des restaurants typiques , nous avons aimé en particulier "al timon"pour ses très bonnes grillades .

L'appartement "la Sensa" est spacieux avec des meubles anciens de qualité et originaux , les salles de bains sont neuves et bien équipées comme la cuisine ; de l'aéroport un bateau taxi nous a déposé à 2 mètres de l'entrée , très pratique !

Le logement est conforme à l 'annonce et bien entretenu , Wifi et Tv moderne pour ceux qui en ont besoin

Bref très agréable séjour , nous reviendrons !

Conformité du logement par rapport au descriptif

  • 4 of 5

Le logement est donné pour 6 personnes avec 3 lits doubles. En fait une des chambres est équipée seulement d'un lit d'appoint en 120 cm, pas vraiment un lit double Par ailleurs la 3ème chambre est mansardée avec très peu d'espace pour bouger (3m²) et une salle de bains minuscule (1m²), à réserver plutôt à 2 enfants. En dehors de ces restrictions l'appartement est bien situé, dans un quartier agréable, avec un living très spacieux et très agréable et une cuisine bien équipée.

About Marc Regnault de la Mothe

I have lived in Venice all my life, studied International Relations and currently working for the UN. I am managing the properties through my family - father and mother are architects that studied in Venice from 1967 and never left it. We know the city inside out and are in love with it!

Marc Regnault de la Mothe purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Marc Regnault de la Mothe chose Cannaregio

At home: internet, TV, DVD, high quality music. A fully functional, modern kitchen. A library. Complimentary bar. A nice, classy, relaxed athmosphere. Sunny the whole day, quiet at night. Pure enjoyment and relaxation!

Outside, a calm, true venetian area. All amenities and shops Quiet walks away from the beaten touristic path.

What makes this apartment unique

great authentic calm venetian area. Very calm, sunny apartment with pictiresque, sunny view. The best thing to do is to have breakfast in front of the window and see people and boats passing in front of you as you sip your mornings' espresso coffee
