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.

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

First rate apartment....great location.

  • 5 of 5

Spent four nights here in March and can't fault apartment. Excellent location away from main touristy areas yet still within walking distance of San Marco, Rialto Bridge, vaporetta, piazzale Roma etc. Cosy and comfortable are perfect descriptions of apartment.... Felt lovely to return to after busy days out.

Met by the delightful Julia who was very helpful. We felt like locals, being minutes from all we needed ....restaurants, supermarket, bars and the fruit and veg barge on the canal outside our window. Lovely to sit outside at bars in Campo San Margarita in the evenings. Apartment well equipped and elegant.... comfy beds, selection of DVDs and CDs available and great sound system a bonus. Would be happy to recommend and would certainly revisit.

Thanks!

Lovely apartment in fantastic area

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very comfortable, lovely decoration, with everything you need. Warm and cosy which was great as it was cold outside (stayed in Feb). Comfortable beds, nice bathrooms. Renter was very organised throughout the process. The location is fabulous with great views from the living room and bedroom. Great resturants and bars on your door step, and a 10 minute walk to the Accedmia Bridge. Can't wait to stay there again.

Nicely updated apt.

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is updated and near several restaurants & shops. The furniture and beds were comfortable. My issue is that the air conditioning was completely inadequate for this two bedroom apt. We stayed in August and really needed the a/c but because the 2 units are located in the entrance foyer, they didn't reach the bedrooms. Plus the washing machine was broke. But I would stay there again but not in the summer.

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.
