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.

Great apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Venice was beautiful! This apartment was great for our family of four. Its is in a good location and has all the amenities you'll need. Our two teenage boys loved the selection of movies and the Sonos sound system. Upon arrival our greeter met us from the water taxi to take us to the apartment. She was lovely and very helpful.

Perfecto!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the spacious, welcoming apartment, with excellent soundproof walls. It was quiet and dark when we woke up even though it is located on a fairly busy street. There were wonderful restaurants and coffee spots nearby. Loved the stereo sound system which my son knew how to operate since I am old school. The greeter was kind and sympathetic to our problem contacting her. I wish we could have stayed for longer!

Lovely, clean apartment in wonderful Dorsoduro

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment, perfect for our family of four, in a really great part of Venice. Clean, well-stocked with wonderful books, movies, games. A/C was helpful. Views are great. Both Jonathan and his local agent were very helpful. This is a great neighborhood for a multi-night stay. Close but not too close; with fantastic neighborhood cafes, gelato places, a supermarket, the works. Highly recommended.

Delightful apartment - charming location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is modern, well appointed and comfortable - perfect for two couples. We loved the fact that the neighborhood has a local, village feel - not many tourists. Lots of restaurants nearby, a grocery store and a fruit/vegetable barge just across the canal. The street below can be noisy at night, but there are soundproof windows, so you don't hear the people below. Our greeter, Julia, was easy to reach, and met us promptly when we arrived. Wonderful stay!

Just As Expected

  • 5 of 5

Ca Leonessa was absolutely perfect - just as expected. Giulia (our greeter) was very helpful. She met us at the waterbus stop, escorted us through the narrow alleyways, through Campo San Barnaba, and to the apartment. All the way pointing out important places such as restaurants, the nearby grocery store, and where to get waterbus tickets. Most appreciated, she helped to arrange for our water taxi to the airport pick-up at 4:00 in the morning! Venice was absolutely amazing. We loved the apartment and being in the community. It was very clean and had modern bathrooms, all of the essential kitchen items, and air conditioning. We were very pleased and would definitely recommend it to others wanting a local experience. One small annoyance was the very popular bar (Oysteria), across the canal. The patrons enjoyed themselves well into the morning and were quite loud every night.

Comfortable and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

All the amenities inside and a great location outside ! Beyond the hustle and bustle of San Marco , this sweet town offers a taste of true Venetian lifestyle . Vegetable and fruit market right outside the door on the canal and lots of cafe's and places to eat and shop . But still within walking distance to sights (Everything is just a public water taxi , boat ride away ) Such a gem ! We were so happy here

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.
