Overview

About the property

2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment

Ca' Leonessa is a recently (2010) restored luxury apartment located in the heart of Venice. It is a short walk from the bus and railway stations. Due to its superb location all the sites of Venice are either within walking distance or a couple of stops on the vaporetto. In the furnishing of the apartment the prime consideration has been to create a comfortable and welcoming oasis for you after a busy days sight seeing in magical Venice.

The living room (which overlooks the canal and the Campo San Barnaba) features two Natuzzi sofa's (one double sofa bed) a Linn sound system and HD television with DVD/CD player.

Both bedrooms are bright and airy with comfortable beds and have plenty of hanging/storage space in the bespoke wardrobes. Bedroom 1 has a luxurious double bed with fine linens and traditional Venetian fabrics. Bedroom 2 has two single beds. Both bathrooms are fully tiled with power showers.

The kitchen has been hand built and features dining for 6.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We returned to Cologne after 3 wonderful days in Venice and we are sure, that we will return some time or other.



During our first stay in Venice years ago, we checked in in a hotel near Piazza San Marco - very expensive, very loud and without any atmosphere.



What a difference. Ca 'Leonessa is a luxurious flat in a wonderful part of the city - and very near to the Canale Grande and the other places of interest.



The meeting with the local guide was uncomplicated.



In the past we have rented flats in several cities (Barcelona, Rome, Vienna); but I can express, that we never had such a comfortable and well-positioned flat.



So I can recommend your flat one hundred percent to all my friends who will plan a visit to Venice.

Living on a Venice Canal

Apartment was spacious and modern. Conveniently located to restaurants and shopping. Staying in a neighborhood made the whole Venice experience more enjoyable. Would highly recommend. Also Julia was very helpful in orienting us to the area.

A Satisfied Custoomer

Good location, away from some of the busier spots, but still convenient to most things. Bedrooms and bathrooms worked well for two couples.

Excellent apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I have previously stayed in Dorsoduro, near Campo Santa Margherita, and would recommend staying here for a Venice visit. The neighbourhood is lively but not noisy, and a wonderful place to relax after a day's sightseeing. The apartment itself is excellently located, very well appointed and convenient to get to from the Ca' Rezzonico waterbus / airport waterbus stop. We were two couples staying there and were met by the host's representative within 10 minutes of telephoning to notify of our arrival. Everything was explained thoroughly. The apartment is very well appointed and we experienced no problems at all. Everything required for a stress-free and relaxing holiday was provided. The high-end Sonos system was a welcome bonus, as were the good selection of travel guides and books. The Venice Jazz Club is just a stone-throw away, as are a great selection of cafes, gelato vendors, restaurants and bars. What's not to like? It's a lovely apartment in a top neighbourhood.

Molto Bene!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleased to have such a charming, clean, and conveniently located apartment. Staying in Dorsoduro Siestre was a grand idea . . . More locals than tourists, allowing us to witness first hand the activity of the neighborhood. The apartment's location is close to a vaparetto stop on the Grrand Canal and is easy walking distance to most major attractions.

Your first glimpse of Venice, the pearl of the Adriatic, is of a magnificent vision of a city rising from the waters of the lagoon. The unique light has fascinated artists and travellers for centuries. As perhaps the greatest trading state Venice has absorbed different cultures like no other City. Its unrivalled blend of cultures is evidenced in the truly magnificent array of architectural styles from Byzantine through to Renaissance elegance and even the neo Fascist architecture of the railway station.

The Grand Canal runs through the centre of the city with its numerous smaller canals and 400 plus bridges link the city and its succession of palazzi.

From the first refugees arriving to the rise of the great Venetian empire of the 13th century and the later Napoleonic invasion, Venice has it all.
